  •  Again I say...I didn't write the sig line, lol (0+ / 0-)

    ...nor did I petulantly leave dkos to go to FDL, in order to more freely spew absolutist gloom and doom without opposition.

    I did not bring the negativity of the diary, insinuating that the struggle,  even for your own rights, in the only arena that can guarantee them, should be abandoned.

    What you should be fighting against are those who openly, explicitly state that they want to kill you, NOT those who have repeatedly stated that your rights DO matter, and that we WILL guarantee them, IF and WHEN the right has been purged and suppressed sufficiently to ALLOW that to occur.

    But then, I'm not convinced that much of this absolutist rhetoric you bring isn't really coming from ultra-individualist Libertarian and "log cabin" sock puppets, with the duplicitous goal of suppressing likely Democratic voter turnout.

    A strange and...perverse...phenomenon, that among those with the most to gain, would be some of the most strident opponents to the only thing standing between them and extermination...mobilization of the electorate, to bring a greater progressive plurality to Congress, to "make" Obama deliver on his promises.

    Most gay people I know are not so stupid as to embrace such an idiotic analysis and strategy as you bring.  Nobody with a brain is buying your jive.  

    Most gays, like anyone else, can recognize that the only real hope for any real change is more better Democrats...period.  And that the only way that's going to happen is to stay resolutely engaged, democratically, electorally, and to recognize that it's not over yet...the struggle continues.

    Oh yeah, and when the ice caps have melted, THEN maybe you will be more equal, in the profound suffering and death that will ensue?  (NOT)

    While civil rights and human rights are, indeed, non-negotiable, the fact remains that they aren't going to mean shit, if we're ALL freakin' dead.

    If the only thing that matters to you is your own rights, then what good are you?  

    You expect such chauvinism to win support from "others"?  That's...irrational.

    Your rhetoric is disingenuous, transparent, and whack, and I think you know it.

    You are totally wasting your time, to even bring that kind of shit, here, or anywhere else.  

    Nobody is going to stop us from purging and suppressing the right, for justice and peace, to save the planet.
