This legislation is long overdue. Putting people to death as punishment is wrong on so many levels. Not only is it more costly than life in prison and unequally implemented, it is irreversible. We have mistakenly put people to death before. And that doesn't even get into the question of morality. Do we really have the right to take the life of another as punishment?

I'd rather see that person be locked up for the rest of their life.

@12, There is a difference between falsehood, and unverified, but supplied by credible sources. If Putin has blackmail material on Trump, it would be a good idea for the public to have a clue about it.

Most of mainstream media has caved to Trump's threats, and won't call a douche a douche. Buzzfeed said it was unverified, but had verified sources. That is worth publishing the info. At least they are willing to tell us what is going on out there, while mainstream media dances at Trump's feet.
Jan 11 SeattleKim commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: A Germ-Phobe Couldn't Be Into Piss, Right?.
The saddest part of this whole thing is that his alleged behavior is completely in character. We have a president-elect who belittles, humiliates, and mocks anyone he disagrees with, and who lies with impunity, even when that lie is blatant. He is untrustworthy. His moral character is disgusting, and he is going to be sitting in the highest office of our country.

Apparently, putting forth the idea that ALL people deserve equal rights and protections was an idea too far for conservatives.
Jan 4 SeattleKim commented on We Still Get Great Comments (From Great Commenters) Here On Slog.
There is a huge difference between a moderated comment section and an open one. Even if there is only light moderation, people behave much better. There are some places I won't even open up comments because they are so horrible. But SLOG is generally a pretty good place. Not always, but usually better than most.

On top of everything else, Trump will never divest from his businesses, so there is a (pardon the expression) YUUUUGE conflict of interest there. He very possibly could be impeached, which would put Pence in the White House. I honestly don't know which would be worse for democracy. We are fucked no matter how you look at it.

Jul 27, 2016 SeattleKim commented on A Scottish Family Searches for Community at Seattle's Gender Odyssey Conference.
GO is an amazing event. Lots of topics covered, and lots of support. Everyone is welcome. If you are more of an ally than genderqueer or gender nonconforming, this is the best place to learn more about how to be a supportive ally. I'm mostly straight and mostly cis, but I feel more connected to the community here than I do anywhere else.

What a bunch of whiners we have on SLOG today. Dan Savage writes the way he writes, and talks the way he talks, because it works for him. That is his style. It can be insulting. Get over it. He has a point, and it is a valid point. Voting for Stein in this election is helping Trump. I can't think of anything worse than having Trump in office.

I'm with her.

It is not IF we will die, but when and how that keep people up at night. I'm surprised the guy lived through the ordeal.
