Guernica is a cubist mural, not a sign that pretends to be a government notification that people are about to be interred. Bullshit comparison.

Looks like a great way to intimidate immigrants who aren't familiar with the art world's cynical postmodern irony. Must have been made by artists who are motivated more by impressing their bros than actually helping the situation.

Wait, I thought the problem was that Uber continued to pick up at JFK while the taxi drivers stopped service as protest. Do I have it backwards or does this article have it backwards?

All the misogynist straight boys pretending like they never pretended to like god-awful music to impress or fit in with their bros.

I'm sick and tired of "liberals" lustily cheering for the declining health and premature death of people who can't afford health care. What the fucking fuck is wrong with you? Everybody should have access to affordable health care because we live in the richest nation in the history of the world. Doesn't matter if they're stupid or motivated by spite or they voted for the wrong person or believe that the world is flat or whatever.

Health care for everybody, period.

I'm a baby boomer mostly-straight male, and for the first time in my life I'm finding it difficult to get exactly what I want without having to put a bit of effort into it. Dan, what the hell is wrong with everybody else but me?!

I can't believe we're even talking about applying the concept of "good manners" to Trump trash.

@3 I don't think queer ought to be defined by how vulnerable you are to social stigma or legal disenfranchisement. Like there's a sign outside of Queer Headquarters that says "You must be this oppressed to enter".

White person here. I watched quite a few ugly arguments spill into my Facebook feed when my white friends tried to convince their white relatives to not vote for Trump. My Trump-voting father is 70 years old, does anyone actually believe it's possible to change the mind of a stubborn, privileged 70-year-old man who's been listening to right wing radio for the past three decades? Trump voters are completely unreachable. Trying to change their mind is a complete fucking waste of time; we need to find ways to contain them, sedate them, defang them, and quarantine them instead. Or if that fails, go to war with them.

Trump voters obviously give zero shits about the safety, security, and survival of everyone in this country who isn't white, straight, native-born, Christian, able-bodied, and adherents to the correct religion. So why the fuck should we be concerned about their feelings at the dinner table? Voting for Trump was the ultimate gesture of "Fuck You I've Got Mine" — an attitude that is completely antithetical to harmonious bread-breaking.
