Someone with the socialist yet anarchic name of Bakunin writes in with a link to an anonymous accuser who is linked to a second anonymous accuser:
It’s not social justice. It’s basic human decency to speak out against a man who says:
“In any case, I have never heard of a group of women descended on a lesbian couple and beating them to death with axhandles and tire-irons, but that is the instinctive reaction of men towards f***” (http://obsidianwings.blogs.com/obsidian_wings/2015/04/john-c-wright-tries-to-cover-up-that-hes-a-wannabe-gay-basher.html)
It is also basic human decency not to lie, not to libel, and not to make false accusations.
For the record, Mr Bakunin, the words you are repeating are the answer to a specific question of what I thought the writers of LEGEND OF KORRA were thinking when they decided to use lesbians rather than male homosexuals as the couple of choice in a children’s cartoon to lure innocent and trusting kids into believing homosexuality is right and normal and ergo Christianity is wrong and abnormal.
But, oddly enough, you are only the second person, out of all of them who commented on that quote, to ask me about it.
No one else did me the courtesy of addressing a question to me. Technically, you did not either, but one does not expect a crow to lay the eagle egg.
So you are ahead of your peers in courage, or, at least, courtesy.
But it seems as if you did not consider the possibility that this quote should be read in context. If you read the question to which this quote is an answer, a reader is asking me to speculate on the motivations and thought process of writers supporting your position.
Yes, your position.
You see, your side, not my side, thinks of rednecks and conservatives and Christians as being obsessed with a psycho-pathological phobia and hatred of gays. Your side coined an silly term for the alleged phobia because it did not exist until you invented it: homophobia.
My question to you is this: do you believe that some, even most, hetero men have a visceral and instinctive desire to beat homosexuals to death?
If so, why is it bigotry if I report that your side believes this?
Why is it bigotry if I speculate that this belief in homophobia, fairly common among your side, was perhaps the reason behind the writers’ decision to use Korra and Asami as their couple of choice rather than, say, Aang and Sokka?
Let us suppose I shared your belief. Why is it bigotry when I report that heteros have this barbaric and grotesque instinct and not when you report it?
Answer: it is not. Which is why the opening part of the quote where I made that clear is missing.
