    Violence? Ok, I'll help you out. Subjective violence is violence at the level of "Subject". I'm using the Lacanian definition here. Does that help?

    •  Gay people have their brains bashed in on a (5+ / 0-)

      weekly, sometimes daily basis in this country.

      This is what makes your entire argument silly, and I'm being incredibly kind here.

      Show me one person who has been literally injured by anything I have done .. or better yet point out the number of anti-gay people who have been hospitalized in this country by gay people.

      You have been treated with extraordinary reticence and kindness in this diary given the type of things you have been saying, which are downright offensive.

      There is no community I am aware of in recent history to have pursued its basic civil rights with more awareness of the costs of violence -- you know, ACTUAL violence -- than the gay community.  Show me the number of anti-gay bigots murdered in this country annually by gay activists.  SHOW ME.  Because I'll guarantee you, you might be able to find one or two hurt, somewhere, but that number would pale in comparison with the amount of actual hurting, you know, involving actual blood, GLBT people experience in this country EVERY DAY.

      If we took your route, we couldn't do anything, because anything at all could be classified as "violence" by your "definition".

      You are arguing for nothing less than continued subjugation in the name of your idea of what "non-violence" entails.  Because to do as you say would be to effectively not do anything -- yes, your philosophy doesn't even stop at the cost of spreading the TRUTH, which you call violence.

      But your agenda here is actually pretty obvious.  You want us to continue to be doormats for this kind of thing, and on into the unknowable future.

      To that, I say, fuck off.

      •  Oh, I guess it didn't help (0+ / 0-)

        Anyway yes, I think you should continue being a doormat. You look good. Because I'm really a secret agent sent to deprive you of your essence. How's that for your right-wing conspiracy?

        And I'm fully aware that you've exercised great reticence and restraint. I know how much you yearn to unleash a great torrent. The pressure just builds.... and builds... and builds with no relief in sight. How do you ever manage?

        You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake.
