And then there's you --"My HERO!"

I think her intentions are good, Ward, and I certainly don't have reason to believe she's stupid by any means, but I think she would agree with me, that she doesn't always choose her words as judiciously as she might.

I had a friend who wanted to discuss politics and other things with me all the time. Generally, I would best her in these discussions fairly based on the flimsiness of her arguments. Her conversation-stopping reply usually boiled down to something like "I'm not as smart or good with words as you, but I know I'm right."

"I feel that Im NOT like anyone else in here"

Of course you're not, but that just means you're unique, like everyone else!

I think you'd better stick with unique, I've spent too much time working with Special Olympics.

Hi Angela, It was never intended to have anything to do with being gay. I posted it because of the reference by Robert Piano to “A picture being worth a thousand words” at the start of the post.  It also refers to “The Human Cost” theme.

The girl in the picture is NOT (imo) saying she was raped because of what she was wearing. She is challenging the meme that some men have that women deserve to be raped because of what they wear. This girl was raped even though she was wearing clothing that could never be construed as “provocative” and so making a mockery of the bullshit idea that it is ever the victims fault. Do you not think so?

kris - My comments had nothing to de with them being gay - where do you get that from?

Did I say they did? The picture is about homosexuality, but as I said in the first line of my post, I was setting the issue of rights aside. The broader point of my criticism is your 'first world problems' bullshit comment.

edit: revised because I think that what was said represented a shitty attitude, not that everything you said can be dismissed at the wave of a hand.

Wouldn't a picture with no words in it have been better to illustrate "A picture is worth a thousand words"? If you blurred out all the words, what would the picture be worth in terms of illustrating an idea?

@Angela, maybe a forum, by its nature, is the wrong place for people who can't express themselves. I mean, what do they expect?
