Good on LGPT rights. Trump is going to be good on LGBT rights. Are you out of your mind? Within one hour, literally, of taking office, the White House’s LGBT rights page had disappeared, along with their pages on climate change and civil rights. You think that's a coincidence?

Fuck's sake. Good on LGBT rights. Hey, I hope you're right. There's not a snowball's chance in hell, but here's hoping anyway. But almost as much, I hope you're honest enough to admit, as the evidence starts to mount all too soon, that you were completely and totally wrong.

Good on LGPT rights.
Jan 6 scott (the other one) commented on Hillary Clinton To Run For President of New York City?.
Clinton should run for governor of New York state, not mayor of New York City. New York has had too many conservative governors, including its current one.

Actually, I kinda wish Obama would run for governor of Illinois.

I agree with @3. Put this all together and it sounds like you, at least, for all your faults, are aware of said faults and seem to have worked pretty hard at this relationship...but it's just not what it should be, or what either of you deserve. My bullshit alarm is going off a lot harder at your boyfriend's behavior, so maybe I'm wrong about him, but either way, your sexual incompatibility's the real deal-breaker. Focus on your exams, OP, and then gracefully, lovingly move on.

Dear Progressive Who Can Do Math:

Right the fuck on. Damn skippy. Preach!

@3: yeah, Nate's gotten very click-baity of late. I don't entirely blame him—a boy's gotta eat and capitalism's the law of the land. But that's why I tend to trust Sam Wang at Princeton much more these days.
Oct 18, 2016 scott (the other one) commented on Naked Hillary Clinton Statue Appears in New York.
"The whole thing is about as subtle as the naked Trump statues that appeared in cities around the US, including Seattle , back in August. The body-shaming was about as funny, too."

A big difference, of course, being that Trump is well-known for his body-shaming of others, whereas Clinton has never, to the best of my knowledge, publicly body-shamed anyone.

TIL that Clinton got rimmed by Monica.

And here I thought I couldn't approve of him more.
Jul 19, 2016 scott (the other one) commented on Someone Did a 50-Minute Version of the Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows"—and It’s Godhead.
The intro does go on a bit—I skipped 14 minutes of it and I'm okay with that—but I really truly no kidding loved the rest.

"Our experiences in the world are very different, and as such our opinions of people differ"

Ah. I suspect the LW is far more negative than he realizes and at some point that—along with his support of Trump and love of guns—led her to quickly back away slowly. (sic)

It is astonishing that after Sandy Hook, nothing was done—in fact, the NRA made gains. That a few years later, the massacre of a club full of gay men seems to have actually had more of an impact than a bunch of little kids getting slaughtered (I realize it's cumulative) drives home just how massively this country has changed in the past five years.
