Terrible with words.

Delishuss ain't got time for that shit.
Dec 12, 2014 Delishuss commented on Downtown Business Owners Call Holiday Protests Against Police Brutality "Intimidating" and "Unfortunate".
@54 Just had to stop by and mention that neither have the Democratic Party or its elected officials issued any kind of vocal condemnation of the trampling of the rights of people in St. Louis, Berkeley, New York, and the other cities where the police have met them with tear gas, less-than-lethal firearms, and violence. The Democrats are cowards. It's no wonder that no one showed up to support them in the last election - they don't stand for anything. You and your ilk are Republican-lite.

Man. I stayed off Slog for a couple of months and this is what I come back to.

Raku might be confrontational and strident, but she's no Seattleblues. She's not openly advocating for the oppression of minority groups the way he does. In fact, just the opposite, she's challenging most of you to dig a little deeper.

And the reaction of most of you (presumably) liberal white folk - including you, Dan - is to pile on, misappropriate her words, and dump all over her instead of trying to understand what she's saying or engage with honest intent. Cuz she's a "troll," right? Her points are so easy to dismiss and ignore, since she's clearly a "young white [woman] desperately trying to make [herself] feel special by being offended by everything and ignoring real problems."

Hey, way to erase all of the POC who consider themselves social justice warriors, msanonymous.

I haven't seen her post anything offensive enough to warrant the vitriol you people throw her way. In fact, she raises salient points - that oppressed groups should be the ones who define what constitutes offensive language and actions towards them. Not the people using the offensive language, not Stephen Colbert, and definitely not Dan Savage -- even if they call themselves allies.

Man, I was considering moving up to Seattle from the Bay Area, but if Slog commenters are representative of the community, that's enough to make me reconsider. Y'all a bunch of progressive poseurs, a stereotype of overprivileged white liberals who are just "open-minded" enough to take a conservative stereotype like Seattleblues out to the woodshed on every thread, but not enough to listen to someone to the left of your side when she points out to you that you're all showing your asses.

Raku, I feel ya, girl. This is clearly not the place to discuss intersectionality, though. Peace, Slog, I don't need you. And Dan? I thought you were a better ally than this. I'm disappointed in you.

Stephen Colbert needs to learn that the words he uses have ramifications and consequences beyond his own personal perception and understanding of those words. Suey Park needs to learn that offense, outrage, and demanding a chilling effect on speech (i.e. "canceling" the show) does nothing to either foster awareness of the issues she's concerned about (because it makes her look like a reactionary), nor to foster a better understanding on his part (because he's inclined to dismiss reactionaries).

Errybody fucked this one up. But this "anti-liberal left" horseshit sounds to me like a privileged person saying, "Stop bitching, oppressed classes! Being responsible about my speech and aware of the effects of my words is inconvenient for me!"

That article makes me pity conservatives. They're physiologically doomed to experience life with aversion, and to treat all new encounters with disgust and fear. What a shitty way to spend your time alive.

@49 & 50 Yeah, but since I'm actually taking steps to make sure the species has a habitable planet to live on and resources to sustain itself before a catastrophic food and/or water and/or energy and/or environmental crisis hits, I think I can live with the low opinions of mouth breathing, meat stanky man children.

Don't worry guys, the price of meat is going to skyrocket in the next two decades, so you'll be eating a veg diet anyway without ever being burdened with taking responsibility for yourselves.

@32 Damn straight I feel smug.

As a vegan, my carbon footprint is smaller even than switching from a gas to a hybrid car.

As a vegan, I don't participate in an unsustainable food system that is draining the world's grain and fresh water supply.

As a vegan, I keep my money out of an industry that has created and refused to improve an extremely hazardous, unsafe, and unregulated work environment for its employees.

As a vegan, I don't consume a product that both spreads disease and contamination pretty much unchecked, and is a significant contributor to the rise of drug-resistant bacteria.

Oh yeah, and as a vegan, nothing has to be tortured and slaughtered for my meals.

I'm also not a defensive whiny tittybaby when someone challenges the food choices I make, because my choice isn't part and parcel to a system that creates terrible economic, environmental, psychological, health-related, and moral consequences.

Yeah, I think I'm better than meat-eaters who understand what they're doing, have the means to change, but don't. Because even if it's occasionally inconvenient and requires me to break away from the social norm, I choose to conduct my life in a responsible way.

Pedestrians and bikers ought to use the same idea of traffic flow as drivers. Signal your intent, merge carefully, pass on the left, and most importantly, pay attention to what's going on around you.

I'm a little claustrophobic, so I don't like getting caught in rush hour escalator scrums. The only thing I can think about while I'm waiting behind a line of people stuck behind some asshole who took his bike on the escalator is: if this is what foot traffic is like on a normal day, imagine what a clusterfuck it would be if there were an emergency.

venomlash, I personally hope you stalk f.u. right off the internet. It makes for good schadenfreude.

@46 What on Earth makes you sure of that? Are you just that confident in Republican gerrymandering, or have you already forgotten their government shut-down?
Dec 20, 2013 Delishuss commented on Who Is Trevonnte Brown?.
@21 And it's the Tea Party asswipes like you of the world that push politicians and policy that force the Trevonnte Browns of the world into poverty, desperation, limited choice and limited opportunity. And it's the Tea Party asswipes like you of the world that create the George Zimmermans: people who can murder men just because they happen to look like Trevonnte Brown, with impunity. Trevonnte Brown didn't have the chance to hurt anyone, and he'll probably see jail time. George Zimmerman straight up killed a black man and he walked away from it. Fuck your sanctimony.

Also, nice coded language, you racist shit.
