Thanks, Dan... For not responding to my email about needing some advice to advance ally work, but rather to indulge this little idiot who claims in the very beginning of this epic email that he was turned off by a girl who took her clothes off for him after "only" knowing him for 5 days.

I think they meant to call you a gutsy, brilliant, exemplary human being...and that perhaps you deserve a cock so large that you could almost choke on it...
I know you don't need validation for the work that you do, Dan. Regardless, I just want to say that I am incredibly proud of your efforts and accomplishments in the field of human sexuality. You have always been a great inspiration to me (and to many others as well).
Thank you...with some punctuation.

@52. I liked your response to @19. Bringing up a film about pop culture was a nice sentiment (because...after all...doesn't art imitate life?) and I would like to take that idea a step further to point out a 2006 documentary called "Deliver Us from Evil."
I know from experience (as a sexologist, as a rape crisis counselor, from my own past experiences with sexual violence) that most people don't like to sit through films that focus on the horrors of sexual abuse. You might be surprised that rape and incest are underrepresented topics even in women's studies classes. This is exactly why it is important to talk about this social problem. I would urge everyone to watch this film - at the very least.
@19 To address the issue of finger pointing and blaming the gays...I was appalled by the things that you wrote. Although I do admit that your response was more literate than most I've seen on the internet, it made me very sad to think that anyone with a sense of reason could come up with such ignorant statements about leaving children alone with gay men. I urge you to check out Dan Savage's posts on Slog that regularly address the lack of wisdom associated with leaving children alone with certain heterosexual couples. He calls these segments "Every Child Deserves a Mother and a Father."
Also...it's disheartening to know that you truly believe this nonsense without looking at the facts about sexual abuse. It's not surprising to me - because many believers of ideologies similar to yours are prone to blindness when it comes to facts - but disheartening...to say the least.
@Paul...Thank you. Your letter was beautifully written and appreciated. I can only hope that one day my words will affect people in the way that yours have in this piece. Bravo.

Assexual is such a stupid term. Scientifically it means that they're able to reproduce on their own.
Fuck them and their stupid hypocritical rants about semantics and definitions on relationships.
Fuck them and their attacks on Savage.
Fuck them and...well...I guess we can't fuck them now, can we?
Too bad. Their loss.

Funny. I live in Philadelphia and yet I read the Slog every day and have never been more than 5 feet close to the Inquirer...and now I know that I'm not missing much.
A healthy debate? A waste of fucking time is what I call it.
