    That was the only analogy I could find. It was about two months ago, and some poster I won't name (not gay) was saying blacks should stop 'whining'. Because I'd heard the use of that term used horribly in LGBT diaries, I pointed out the wrongness of it.

    It was at that moment I started a long dialogue and rapprochement with Libdemdave.

    So actually the analogy was a positive one - a bit of joint alliance against trolls. Of course, I didn't have time to unpack that in my hurriedly written diary (or find the link) and so now I've struck out the poorly thought out analogy.

    I hope that explains. Those really were the thoughts passing through my head: they just didn't make it clearly to my fingers.

    And with that I must sleep. Good luck with all your diaries and great work in the time ahead.

      about LGBT users who felt the ax, and since you mentioned him in this post, I just thought I'd note that liberaldemdave got banned.

      I think he probably deserved it, but I will observe that he was one of the very tiny number of openly HIV+ people on this site.
