Did anyone else catch the comparison between romantic caution and outright racism?
Your guest compared racial profiling with bi-phobia and then unsuccessfully attempted to justify being suspicious of bi-sexuals because "they have more options." His use of racial profiling and the path of his argument could lead listeners to believe that being suspicious of people because of their race is justified because what? They have more options to commit crimes? Most often race is used in criminal profiling by police to excuse individual AND institutionalized racism. I kept listening and waiting for you to correct him, Dan, but you let me down. So did you intended to make bi-sexuals feel like they should tolerate it when a partner is unjustly suspicious because that partner has now been given your green light to be a controlling, jealous partner? And did you intend to make people of color feel like they should tolerate it when the police stop them because suspicion can lie only on race and not just cause? You said nothing when your guest ate his foot, giving racism your green light. Didn't you say that silence is ascent? I didn't, and have not, remained silent when Satan .... pardon, Archbishop Sartain, waged war on gays. Not one sent of my money will Papa Ratzi recieve because his Church is bat shit, oppressive crazy. My money now goes in larger amounts to Planned parenthood and Northwest Aids Alliance. Where are you, Dan, when this black woman needs you? Silent. That's where. And I expected more from a man with your knowledge. I would like for you to make this right. Can you do that, Dan? Can you admit that distrusting bisexuals based on their sexuality is wrong and that distrusting people based on their color is wrong too?
