  •  Ah, because you're so perfect (0+ / 0-)

    you've never been reading through a diary, then hit something farther down that totally made you forget other issues you've had with the diary?

    My first thoughts were indeed that the title (and the accompanying ideas being used) were wrong - and until I stumbled over 'Obama = Bush', my first and only comment would have been about that.

    GoGo pretty quickly pointed out the trans issue problem, which made me think, oh right, there was indeed more that was problematic about the diary, but I'm sorry that I didn't get around quickly enough for you to posting my own comment to add to the others who were dismayed at the title and concepts associated.

    I wasn't the one thinking politics before people.
    No, you were the one who felt you had to attack me for taking too long to also address the trans problem - in a diary in which you yourself didn't bother to do so other than in your attack on me.  You put me before the diarist's transphobic words.

      you see the title, you think, "did somebody really go there? did somebody really..." and you click on it, and watch the video, and you don't think to criticize, first and foremost, the bigotry? you get... distracted?

    •  Maybe you shouldn't be front and center (0+ / 0-)

      trying to get your comment in so quickly, you'd have a chance to think of all the bad things about it. Instead of going right to the politics.

      I'm not perfect. But I know bigotry trumps politics.

      I'd like to start a new meme: "No means no" is a misnomer. It should be "Only 'Yes' means yes." Just because someone doesn't say "No" doesn't mean they've given consent. If she didn't say "Yes", there is no consent.
