Denunciations

Why I resist calls for them, generally:

  • Well, really, the whole "denounce him!" thing is kind of Stalinist, don't you think?

  • If an act is sufficiently repulsive as to be deemed abhorrent by society, by the overwhelming majority of a society's members, then the presumption must be that any individual member of society is innocent, i.e., utterly against Outrageous Act x, until proven guilty, i.e., completely in favor of Outrageous Act x. You may imagine all the preceding as a separate post here entitled, "Why This Blog Has Never Condemned B-stiality, Slavery, or the Wholesale Slaughter of Adorable Little Puppies and Kittens."


  • Why I resist calls for them, specifically:

  • Because fuck you if you're too ignorant of my character to figure out that if it's wicked repulsive, I'm probably not in favor of it. I shouldn't have to break it down for you, dumbass.

  • Because I'll decide who represents and speaks for me, not you. Who asked you to determine that? By what right do you attempt to do it? Who do you think you are?


  • Don't tell me whom I have to denounce in order to prove things that should be bleeding obvious. That's a sure way to get me to give you the finger.
