Remember, folks: whenever a woman says "die for me because you are a man," just look her in the eye and say "my body, my choice."

I Guess it's a Privilege

... to suddenly find myself obliged to address so very many trolls.  I mean do that sincerely because I appreciate the 8,000 pageviews generated through Reddit this past week or so, but some of you folks don't seem to grasp the overall tone of this blog.  The intentionally provocative style of my Anonymous Letter post is NOT representative of my usual writing.

I welcome dissent here because I enjoy intellectually honest debate.  I also learn from it.  There is however, nothing intellectually honest, or remotely edifying, in playground-style insults (which are not as witty as you think they are) and in cryptic fringe-based rabble rousing.  Y'all can just cut that shit out right now because I will delete it without a second thought.  Feel free to publish it in your own space, but not here.

  1. It is compliment that they are emailing or commenting. I've had my share of trolls and they can get tiresome. But they will generate conversation, traffic, anger, etc. . . Happy New Year to you and your entire family!
