And look who's "pontificating," missy. I haven't demeaned anyone at all.
You truly are clueless if you think that some starlet making a public announcement that she’s gay matters as much as people who are gay being able to work without harassment. Most people don't even think twice about who's straight or gay in the workplace. That's the victory.
Your not getting this would be funny if only it weren’t so tragic that you flatter yourself that you're some sort of liberal avenger-hero when you swoop down to brand someone as lacking in compassion or empathy when nothing has been said to indicate this at all.
No, I am not going to “clarify my position.” What I said was plain and simple. I don’t know why you’re projecting, but you are fabricating opinions and feelings for me that I have never expressed. Grow up and read what people actually say rather than what you desire to project.
From John Hawkins (on why liberals can be such unpleasant people):
Reason #3: Liberals see people who disagree as evil: Liberals see themselves as part of a Manichean struggle in which they’re trying to create Utopia on earth while they’re being opposed by people who want to do evil for evil’s sake. In other words, liberals are about as complex as your average comic book from the fifties. As Charles Krauthammer has said, “To understand the workings of American politics, you have to understand this fundamental law: Conservatives think liberals are stupid. Liberals think conservatives are evil.”
When you attribute disagreements with Barack Obama to racism, opposition to gay marriage to homophobia, standing against abortion as hatred of women, and a desire to balance the budget to loathing of the poor, you have a hopelessly simplistic view of the world that makes you utterly impervious to reason. Stupid, you may be able to educate, but evil, you have to defeat -- and liberals are seldom picky about the means or the manners they use while trying to do so.
Reason #5: Liberalism encourages arrogance: Liberals tend to believe they're brilliant, compassionate, moral, enlightened, perceptive, and courageous, not because of anything they've actually done, but just because they're liberal. When you completely divorce a person's self image from his behavior, it produces terrible results -- like liberals who hurl abuse at conservative women while believing that they're feminists or selfish left-wingers who've never given a dime to charity, but believe themselves to be much more compassionate than people who tithe 10% of their income.
