  •  it's words (0+ / 0-)

    I'd hate to see what would happen if people had to actually defend themselves from something other than words.

    I sing praises in the church of nonsense, but in my heart I'm still an atheist, demanding sense of all things.

    •  Given that we live in the US and we're talking (0+ / 0-)

      about women and people of color I can tell you that they do need to defend themselves against more than just words. Probably more than you'd expect. That's the issue. If they were "just words" then it would hardly be a big deal. The issue being brought up is that how we use words matters. You of all people should know the power of words.

      If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.

      •  I grew up with the... (3+ / 0-)

        queen of verbal and physical abuse as a mother. I guess my callused skin doesn't let the words penetrate.

        Perspective and all that.

          confused than before. What the fuck is this whole argument about again?

            I wrote a post the other day that some people here really didn't like.
            Translation: "I got donutted big time a couple of days ago and I need a quick mojo fix.  I'm down to three bars ferchrissakes."

            It certainly isn't dialog; the diarist hasn't condescended to make any follow-up comments.

            Happens all the time around here.
