I'm so happy to see she's writing her thought provoking posts at her Dyssonance blog again to the chagrin of her haters, and this one needed to be signal boosted.
It's called 'Strong Drink-Bitter, Sweet & Stout', and here's a taste of it (pun intended).
This line in the sand is one ingredient, however, in the stuff that I promote. First, there are rights. Concomitant with all the rest, and underlying the efforts for all the rest, one must keep in mind that all people have these rights. That includes the idiots and the fuckwits and the generally crappy people who think that all people shouldn’t have the exact same rights.|
People like Maggie Gallagher. People like Bryan Brown. People like Orson Scott Card (who’s hit novel is about to become a movie and which funded and will continue to fund efforts to oppress us). People like Cathy Brennan. People like Elizabeth Hungerford. Organizations like the Alliance Defense Fund, the Traditional Values Coalition, Focus on the Family, the American Family Association. Companies like Chick-Fil-A. Religions like the Baptist Conventions and denominations, the Catholic Church, certain sects of Islam. And all the people who support them and their ideas.
All of them firmly believe that all people should not have the exact same rights, and yet, if asked, all of them will naturally say they do believe in such. The proof is in the pudding, in the way they talk about those things, in the measures of actions, not words.
And all of them have taken actions to ensure that everyone does not have the same exact rights.
