With great power comes great responsibility. These folks are role models, looked up to buy legions of fans. They should use that part for more than mere self-aggrandizement.
Mar 19, 2014 Tyro commented on I'm Triggered By Your Triggers.
The point of trigger warnings is to give people the *option* of whether or not to experience something. In forums with a lot of abuse victims (like feminist facebook groups, for example), it's a choice between not posting something for fear of triggering people's PTSD and giving them a heads up.

If the facts are as the author said, I agree with this I/Anon. Note: I'm a proud feminist and would be happy to personally take the balls of a genuine rapist.
Feb 22, 2014 Tyro commented on One license per pot grower, state says.
As a very poor cannabis patient who can't grow his own due to health problems, I very strongly oppose this as it will dramatically increase the cost of my medication.

Spoof calling seriously pisses me off

@50: Reported for trolling, asshole. I don't expect perfect civility on an Internet forum, but I'd rather people didn't trigger my PTSD. Do us all a favor and move already.

Seriously? If you would consider a well-run, above-board, locally-owned bikini coffee stand to be a "good business", why insist on making this one "family-friendly"? (And BTW, scantily-clad bodies are NOT intrinsically harmful to children!)

I've long since given up on the licensed stores as a lost cause until better legislation is passed, but at least I don't have to worry about getting arrested for carrying my meds now. "Affirmative defense" my ass!
