Wow. You're not even reading my posts. Lovely.
First of all, let's address this:
I really want to believe that intelligent, educated people in this day and age are above making sweeping generalizations, but clearly, I've been proven wrong once again.
I wasn't operating under the opinion that Virge is intelligent or educated--he certainly doesn't come off that way. He was, however, being attacked, rather unfairly, by you.
Missbitesalot: I understand the hypothetical you were trying to pose upthread, but frankly I'm surprised and more than a little disappointed to find you on VirgeZ's side. It's not "playing devil's advocate" if you're positing your own convictions.
What? Is this a war where we have to take sides? And I'd love to see you try to peg down "my convictions" when I'm sure you have absolutely no idea what they are. I was taking issue with your posting from the wikipedia article where you pointed out that even separating people according to race is "racist." Here, again, have a big, steaming bowl of your own hypocrisy:
Racism...may also be defined as the act of separating groups according to these ascribed race categories.
Remember now? Here's something else you said that I take issue with:
Y'all have a good life. Seriously. Label people to your heart's content. Make snap judgments based on skin color, gender, age, body size, earlobe shape, whatever. Have a blast with that bizarro ideological world of yours.
??? You can't be serious. So again
, you're the one guilty of what you're accusing others of. You are pigeon-holing me just because I questioned your opinions, and it made you uncomfortable, so rather than get to the nut of the thing you try to discredit me by lumping me in with someone who--wait, how am I like Virge again? Please 'splain. And I know commas only go after the words "the following," but I'm using artistic license.
You're still pwning yourself. By all means, go ahead, it makes it a lot easier for me.
