Aug 31 Brandon Arkell commented on An Open Letter From Erin Jones to The Stranger.
#3 I am gay, and when Jones said she does not believe being gay is a sin for members of the LGBTQ community, to me that meant the same thing as being LGBTQ isn't a sin. After all, aren't LGBTQ people a part of the LGBTQ community? However, I do acknowledge that her involvement in a Christian youth group which forces leaders to sign a contract denouncing the 'gay lifestyle' is deeply troublesome, and that makes me remain sceptical about her stance.

All these 'go home' comments are provincial and insular. This is anti-cosmopolitan. You should be welcoming of outsiders, even if they are annoying. For fuck's sake, California is in the same fucking country.

Weird. Seattleites smoke a lot? Um, not really. Also, it's actually more diverse than the national average.

So sad that people fear reporting these crimes because of their immigration status.

Helmets are such a big deal in American cities because they are so much more car-dominated than cities elsewhere in the world. In Europe, Asia, and Latin America, people ride everywhere without helmets because the streets are designed in a much more pedestrian-and-bicycle-friendly way. It's actually the most striking difference when you compare American cyclists with non-American cyclists.

A regressive tax on the poor? A lot of poor people TAKE the bus.
