You're right, I apologize to Scarlet.
I guess I get frustrated because I really would like of we could all just get along, and I would like to help that process. But when I hear about how I cant understand, or how there is nothing I can do, or that I have to condemn one person for using a word, but accept when another person uses that same word, drives me bonkers.
I am happy to treat everyone equally, just don't get mad at me when I do.

Sorry, had a crazy weekend - wasn't ignoring you.

We can learn from others' experiences, we can try to emphasize, but there are some experiences that we can't claim as our own. For example - childbirth. You have never had a child and you cannot have one. You can be supportive of a woman who is having one, you can be present for the birth, but you can't go through the same experience - the surge of hormones, the feeling of something that is alive and moving coming out of you. You can relate to pain, but there is more to the feelings that go along with childbirth that are only felt by the woman.

That doesn't mean that you can't talk about it, or that your part in the pregnancy and raising the child are irrelevant. It just means that sometimes you can't be the voice of experience or last word on certain subjects.

By "you", I mean the general you :)

Hope everyone is having a good weekend! Mine sucked. Could be worse, though. These two are idiots.

Pssshtt.

I say good for him. I love his response to her claim that he'll never find someone like her again.

I think his responses were very funny, but unless he plans for a career in comedy, his decision to make this so public is pretty immature.

Maybe he is. Apparently he was the salutatorian and pretty funny in his speech. Have not watched it yet.

He's 17. You were expecting Matt Lauer? I would think a high school kid acting immaturely would be par for the course.

You better hope not! With all the newly straight guys available, no women would bother with you.

And I believe those same resources might cure you of ignorance.

Maybe they weren't the right kind of white, plus they're cops. I think, generally, White Supremacists aren't really fond of the police.

There is nothing to cure. If only we could cure the ignorance that people such as you carry and spread.
All those shootings and they keep missing you.
Such a shame.

Guess so, but it does'nt further their message very well....Not sure of anything Law Enforcement can do, in situations like this.....

Why cant we all just get along?
If there really was a car in between them that turned off, how was she so close to his car then? At the very least she was tailgating.
