commented on Seattle Police Officer Resigns Rather Than Face Firing Over Romantic Texts
I wonder if anything will be done about the fact that Officer Walt Hayden, the SPOG representative in this case, was clearly biased against the complainant. When you come right out and say, "I’m assuming that’s why she filed this complaint, because she’s vindictive," you are clearly making an effort to impede this type of investigation.
Also, what kind of shitbag says "from what I know, [she was] fired from there for being dishonest" and then immediately follows that up with, "whether that’s true or not, I don’t know." If you don't know, why the fuck are you bringing it up, and prefacing it with "from what I know"? Asshole.
SPOG should be held accountable for this kind of bullshit cover for cop misconduct. As far as I can tell, there is absolutely no consequence to them lying their asses off to protect a cop at all costs.

commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: My Brother's Business
Am I the only one who's driven fucking nuts by a letter that's ruined by vagueness about the writer's gender/orientation when it would be relevant? This LW mentions losing trust in men, but we can't really tell whether that's referring to his/her relationship with a "person". FFS, don't make me read the letter three times over to try to figure out if there's a subtle clue in there. Just fucking state your gender and orientation up front so we know what the fucking pronouns mean and don't play this coy "person" shit.

commented on Antifascist Groups Are Organizing a Protest Against the Alleged White Power Rally in Ballard and Capitol Hill
I'm just ever so slightly confused. On December 4, SLOG posts about a white power rally that's happening on December 6. December 6 passes and there are no posts whatsoever about whether or not that white power rally actually happened. In fact, there is only one post all fucking weekend. Is SLOG actually dead and nobody told me? This shit is embarrassing. Oh wait, was there like a RuPaul drag race finale going on this weekend because that would excuse the lack of actual news.

I hate to break it to you dickheads saying that if a person ends up blocking an intersection or crosswalk due to this, it's their fault by definition, but you're wrong. You can follow someone through an intersection if you can see that the road ahead is clear, and if they just decide to be a huge asshole and block you from exiting the intersection because they have their head up their ass, the fault is theirs. The gridlock fault comes into play when you enter an intersection that you know (or should know) you can't clear.
Try this sometime: go through an empty intersection with someone right behind you, then just stop for no fucking reason at all so they can't clear it. Guess who's at fault for them blocking the intersection? I will give you a hint: it's not them.

commented on Required Viewing: Maddow On "Kill the Gays" Pastor and the GOP Candidates Who Love Him
The best possible outcome of this would be if a large and vocal number of right-wingers would convince the GOP candidates that they're only going to vote for someone who openly says the gays deserve to die. They don't have to promise to make it happen but they need to hold the position that it's deserved. LET'S GO PUBBIES! Ayyyyy batter batter batter sa-wing battah!
