commented on Slog Bible Study: Special Bullshit Edition
Interesting that in the Timothy excerpt slave traders are included in the list of the immoral. Does this contradict or supersede other biblical references? I wonder if this single reference is said to negate all other not-condemnations elsewhere.
Also: Did anyone notice the sheer number of available translations at the linked biblegateway.com
site? It made me think about our childhood game of telephone.

commented on Confidential to NOM's Brian Brown: You're On, Motherfucker
Brian Brown may be an easily-flustered bigot, but he's no idiot. He won't show, he'll cancel, he'll make any excuse he can including hiring a thug to break his leg on the steps of the buidling, but he won't make good. That's for sure. Bigots are cowards.

commented on The Racist Montana Judge
Agreed, he should resign. His conduct does dishonor to his post.
That said, demanding investigation into his career history reminds me of the Prop8 argument that a gay judge can't be impartial, when in fact they can. We need to be careful and aware of our double standards. Couldn't a racist be impartial, too? Are racists automatically disqualified, but gays, catholics, women, men, etc all get a pass?
Just food for thought. Yes, he should be challenged based on his behavior. But if he's been demonstrably impartial, he's just a racist who does his job. And I don't think racists should necessarily be denied employment. Being held accountable for their actions is enough for me.

commented on SL Letter of the Day: How Many Is Too Many?
The problem is CAN's. The boyfriend is apparently soft-spoken on the issue as CAN would certainly complain if the boyfriend were bragging, throwing it in CAN's face, or comparing CAN's performance with his past lovers. If CAN can't get over it, the problem is going to be an issue over and over again. Because lots of guys could tell you how many sex partners they've had when they're in their teens or early twenties. But thirties? Forties? I lost count sometime *after* I was 24, that's for sure.

commented on Black Racism and Lin
I find "embarrassment to [his/her/your/my/our/etc] race" to be a surprising statement coming from an enlightened person. Is every individual an accurate representation of the entire race of people they appear to be descended from? RLY?

So tranny is the new cunt?
Way to give the word power, GLAAD.
My vote: We all start calling our friends 'trannay' just like we called them 'niggah' for a while. That way we can put it in some rap songs and get over ourselves.
Oh, and GLAAD? Hands off my 'faggot.' I rather like the word, and me and my whole faggot posse aren't stopping.
