“In this white supremacist, transphobic, ableist, misogynistic, hyper-Christian society…”

Yeah, no bigotry in THAT statement. Maybe if you were willing to extend to others the same respect you seem to think that everybody BUT traditionally-valued, non-melanin-rich, XY folks deserve, you wouldn’t get so much flak. Now, deleting a comment for foul language, rampant disrespect, or being downright mental is one thing. Deep-sixing it because, “Oh, it’s another white guy who doesn’t think that Bob Who Thinks He’s A Girl Today should be in the restroom with his seven year old daughter, and that’s so terribly Not Progressive,” is another, and not in the interest of honest debate. Not to mention that, after having really perused your “article”, you seem to possess every iota of bigotry of which you accuse others. Anybody who holds opinions other than those in line with yours seems to be “backwards”, “ignorant,” “archaic.” Progress, so-called, should not be a goal in and of itself. Walking blindly toward a cliff is Progress; just not in a positive direction.

“ I don’t have time to debate something so backward, and I don’t have time to explain.” This that or the other “should not be up for debate”. Why not? In this age of No Absolutes, has something suddenly become Absolute? Sure, but only those things you have determined should be so.
