She doesn't have to be "evil" or a horrendous person or even a demonstrable wrong-thinker on non-straight issues. Just not "getting" these issues is a serious knock against any candidate, regardless of personal life.

Mrs duRay - I recall hearing a bit of flap over that one's unsung verse as well.

I'm reminded of how I recently heard some anti-feminists who know very little about literature claiming that Miss Austen was undeserving of appearing on the ten pound note and was only chosen because they were looking for a woman - any woman, and she was the best known.

"The OTHER way?" Time to break out the lorgnette.

If there are only two lines of interaction, perhaps it ought to be called a veesome.

I'll agree with Mr Savage's description of Mr W. I'm not paid enough to decide whether or not it's hilarious how some people call certain other people talented.

M le Comte - Watch Barcelona and find out. The character in question is a bit of a Reagan True Believer.

I'll take the high road here and assume, despite inferences to the contrary, that Mr Savage would even go so far out of his way as to care about the husband whose privates were cut off and put into the garbage disposal (much to the amusement of Mrs Osbourne). It could well be useful in future, when earnest Rainbow Feminists assure people that "toxic masculinity" doesn't-doesn't-absolutely-doesn't mean that men are inherently toxic, that Mr Savage has asserted roundly to the contrary.

Barcelonasplaining:

"Look at all the people killed in shootings in America!"

"Oh... shootings! But that doesn't mean Americans are more violent than other people. We're just better shots."

[HA]

Eh, perhaps it's more that no woman or even man is safe around two (other) women; we all know how voracious and unprincipled women are.

[sideways]

I'm going to take a different angle on the first letter and inform the assembled company that it's LW1 and not BF1 who's the Trump supporter. Who bails? (Yes; if Karl Rove could go to the gay barbershop he'd been patronizing the day after Shrub's re-election and expect there to be no hard feelings [he was wrong], I'm sure Trump supporters have the chutzpah to continue to consult Mr Savage, perhaps getting some perverse enjoyment out of doing so.)

I'd respond CMY to L1 except for LW's one saving grace, her realization that past paramours cut her an undeserved break. The sense of Mr Savage Guest and at least one poster that LW was entitled to such breaks seems almost, to borrow from Ms Grizelda, toxic.

[non-HA]

It may need a little cross-examination to confirm, but my first instinct in response to L3 would probably be CMY, as predicted. My main thought, though, is that it was a little drippy of Mr Savage Holidaying to pass this letter on to Mr Savage Guest when LW specifically hoped for the Real Opinion.

The obvious answer for LW2 is to settle who pays how much with a game of cards, which may also have the side benefit of revealing their basic incompatibilities.
