This is one of those "please don't be a bunch of white guys, please don't be a bunch of white guys..." moments.

And then....

"Oh, fuck. Look at that. The entitled babies in adult bodies are a bunch of white guys."

Someone needs to photoshop a poster with Brock Turner & Matt Hickey.
Sep 1 Some Old Nobodaddy Logged In commented on An Open Letter From Erin Jones to The Stranger.
There is a big issue here, which is what got her into trouble in the first place: Should teachers be able to discuss/mention/teach sexual orientation to 5 year olds. She dodges the issue in her letter, only giving lip service to "age appropriate" sex ed, without going into specifics. She's a great politician, I'll give her that: She dances with words like a champ. She brings up how she's so compassionate, pushes her experience, and when she apologizes, she's really saying, "I'm sorry I didn't say the right code-words to manipulate you. I'll know better how to manipulate the right audience in the future." And like a good panderer, she avoids specifics like the plague.

Reykdahl, otoh, has been clear and precise about his support for comprehensive sex ed.

@16 There is plenty of evidence on alcoholics, nice people sober, who commit crimes drunk. So I think we have enough information to pass judgment.

I mean, it was very nice 'n all for LW not to bring the cops in. He probably did it to salvage the relationship. Maybe 1 & 7 are right, in that he doesn't ascribe to a worthless, laughable, and obsolete model of masculinity. As such, he felt a something could be worked out in a mature way, between adults.

There is no reason why LW should have anything more to do with his should-be-ex. It may be true that she wants things to work out for everyone, but threats of violence by a (self-admitted) blacked-out drunk is a non-starter. If she wants to be an enabler to her drunk ex, that's her business, but it certainly doesn't have to be his.

Dan is spot-on on this one, DTMFA.

@13 If you have any connection to Ms. Jones, you might want to suggest to her that these points should have been brought up by her during her Stranger interview; Instead of using words like "lifestyle," which anyone who works on/writes about LGBT issues knows precisely what it means.

@5 Of course people are allowed to grow and evolve. That doesn't mean they are owed a major state position. This was in a link from the article.

I get more informed content from my ass than I do from Giuliani.
Aug 26 Some Old Nobodaddy Logged In commented on Speaking Out About the Matt Hickeys of the World Won't Be Enough To Change Rape Culture.
I think it behooves any prospective journalist, every time they write an article on it, to define 'rape culture.' The confusion on the meaning of the term will allow it to go the way of "grunge" and "hippie." Terms so loose they are nearly meaningless.

On a more concrete note, as someone with casual acquaintance to Mr. Hickey, he was not someone who liked to spend his time around guys. Obviously, he preferred the company of women. He was not someone who was comfortable around other men, and from what I observed, did not have any close male friendships. What that says about his actions, I'll leave up to you.

@11, I read that post as well, and I thought it was a very good look into the organization of a campaign. Yes, most of the people were newbies who had been either turned off or uninterested in politics. It also shows that a campaign must begin years in advance, getting the infrastructure in place. This is what Obama did in the years before the '08 election, and what the DNC had done for Clinton in the previous two years. Sanders' campaign began as a trickle, with almost no support whatsoever.

And while it may be that the point of your post was to dismiss all of Sanders' supporters, and certainly the goal of Mr. Frizzelle to make them all go away, there is a big lesson that the Dems must take heed or they will soon die like their Republican counterparts. In spite of all that, Sanders nearly won. (And while there are claims of cheating, equally poo-poo'ed by the Clinton campaign, the truth is there that for almost 35% of votes, there is no proof either way. We can't know the truth, and will never know it, because the electronic voting machines have no paper trail. That in itself should cause anyone who believes in America pause. That it doesn't displays either gross cynicism or support for corruption.)

So if the disorganization couldn't prevent Sanders' from being a substantial threat, if the various low-level antagonism from the DNC (not necessarily illegal, of course, but certainly against their commitment to fairness) couldn't prevent it, then the logical conclusion is that there is a deep support for his issues and goals that Hillary won't or can't provide. The kind of support that would win a presidential landslide even if it was against a sane Republican candidate.

Hillary will be our next president, but the movement that Sanders represented will continue. And I doubt very seriously that it will be guided by those who see it in limited terms, or fear it because of what it means to Hillary, or choose to call it names because they have a personal ax to grind.

Here's a good article on a representative election on this debate, Tim Canova (endorsed by Sanders) v Debbie Wasserman Schultz (endorsed by Clinton).

I'm sure Mr. Frizzelle agrees with the incremental progress that Ms. Schultz is advocating for, where marijuana is still a gate-way drug that leads to heroin addiction, but perhaps medical marijuana might be okay.

@1. Exactly. I want to barf whenever someone describes a 32 year old male as a "kid." He embarrassed his country, and I don't see why any American would want to defend him.
