commented on What We Find in Gay Bars and Queer Clubs
dan ive trolled you via email a half dozen times over the years and you've told me to fuck off several times (in as many words). the sad thing is, i bet we agree with each other about 99% of things, i just hate how you have always felt like a bully to me. two wrongs not making a right and such.
i've attacked you to friends for never writing anything significant in the stranger (which was true the last time i looked through everything you had written for the stranger, not slog, several years ago), yet i knew from your near universal staff benevolence that you were probably a rock star employee.
all of this is to say i think this piece is slowly turning my thoughts around on you. idk if you care, but this is me telling you that.
i want to specifically stress my negative feelings towards you has nothing to do with homosexuality. although i am the most boring cis white male on the (overpriced) block, my first roommate and then-best friend is gay, blah blah blah.

commented on What I Learned from Walking Around Lake Washington in Two Days
I have struggled for years to adequately explain to people why I couldn't handle working on the east side and switched jobs almost solely to get to downtown Seattle. Thanks mostly to Mudede, but echoed in this post, I finally am able to explain car-orientated neighborhoods to people-orientated neighborhoods. That is an easy to understand and effective way of explaining the difference, and I find myself applying the dichotomy to a lot of local civics themed thoughts.

Point #5: what I got from that subplot was realizing you hated Dawn's personality, but agreed with her ideals (ie: of not running a force that pushes around old people and rapes the help). So you end up being forced to at least respect her (ie: what she was saying in the dialog).
