    he's talking about how outrageously obnoxious it was. If you didn't see that diary to be controversial, you need to either get more information about sexual assault or entirely avoid the subject on Daily Kos.

      could have gotten obnoxious, but the diary itself wasn't about sexual assault. It was, however, about sex, so I suppose I should just avoid that topic in the future, since it seems people may not make reasoned distinctions.

        but I know that a lot of people whose opinions I respect found it highly offensive. The diarist deleted that diary and then posted another diary which I did read and I found that one offensive.

        for the abolition of laws prohibiting incest and polygamy and, in an earlier diary and less directly, bestiality. And it used abortion as the hook to do so, expressing concern that those engaging in incest are the "invisible victims of the anti-abortion vs. pro-choice fight."

        The comments weren't the problem.

        I'm not saying those subject areas are beyond the scope of rational discussion, but there was nothing in the diarist's history suggesting that would ensue, and much to suggest that there might have been some other reasons for posting that particular bit of advocacy here.
