We Get Hate Mail

We get a lot of supportive and thankful comments here. We also get some hateful comments left here, and some of them I don't publish either because they don't even attempt to contribute anything to the discussion or because of the words used. If the reason is the latter, I may publish a comment in edited form, as I'm doing here.

Someone left a comment on this very popular entry about a media depiction of a loving relationship initiated through Genetic Sexual Attraction.

This is actually f---ing sick.

One of the great things about everyone having equal rights is that if you don't want to have a relationship like that, you don't have to. And if someone finds your relationship to be sick, they can't stop you.
For all of you who are congratulating them wtf is wrong with you?

It's called... being happy for other people. Try it sometime?
He is her father!

Genetically, yes. But he didn't raise her. So what is the point, either way? Our objecting person doesn't explain what the actual problem is.
That's f---ing beyond disgusting.

Again, then don't do it. See Discredited Argument #1.
I'm gay, and marriage 'equality' make me sick to feel that I should be categorized in the same rank as these two sick people. Ew.

Sad. There are people who say the very same thing about gays. They don't want them considered to be equal to heterosexuals.
Each to their own, yes.

Oh, good, something reasonable.
Why did they have to admit it to everyone?
Sadly, there are people who say the same thing about LGBT people, including some LGBT people. Coming out of the closet should, in general, is a choice that should be made by the individuals.

Comments like this make me appreciate solidarity all the more.

Whether you or I or anyone else likes any given orientation or relationship (or is disgusted), we should affirm that an adult, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, or religion, should be free to share love, sex, residence, and marriage (or any of those without the others) with any and all consenting adults.

Post a Comment

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
