In which His Imperial Majesty links… Amateur gynecologist Andrew Sullivan. No, seriously.
Will [Eich] now be forced to walk through the streets in shame? Why not the stocks? The whole episode disgusts me – as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society. If this is the gay rights movement today – hounding our opponents with a fanaticism more like the religious right than anyone else – then count me out. If we are about intimidating the free speech of others, we are no better than the anti-gay bullies who came before us.
Amen. Except for your knee-jerk condemnation of “the religious right”, but you probably can’t help yourself. His Imperial Majesty belongs to that “fanatically hounding religious right” and hasn’t “fanatically hounded” anybody. Ever. Gay or otherwise.
You see, we do understand that the Gay Gestapo, that howling, frothing, fascist minority doesn’t speak for gay people as a whole any more than the Westboro Baptist Incest Club and Nut House speaks for Christians as a whole.
Nevertheless, Andy, well said.
UPDATED: His Imperial Majesty, in a show of liberal fascist “tolerance” of different beliefs, has herewith tolerantly uninstalled FireFox in a very tolerant fashion. Oh who are we kidding? We fucking NUKED that thing. It’s actually quite liberating not to have a browser take up 1+ GB of RAM just to keep a half dozen tabs of Malaysian Midget Pr0n open. We wonder how we ever managed to put up with it. Oh, and importing everything to a new browser is a breeze. So… #FireFox #uninstalled.
