Wow, look. New thread and I'm still here.

For your edification, BTW, here goes a mini-recap of the last 20 or so posts in Bureaucracy 1:

"She started it!!!"

"No, he started it!!"

"She started!!!"

"He started!!!!"

"She started!!!"

"He started!!!!"

I guess it was just unavoidable.

The feeling you get when your brain finally lets your heart get in its pants.

You always do this. We get tipsy, and you take advantage of my love of the scientific method.

shouldn't that be "Sartre"?

Heh, I just grabbed this post:

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

I swear I know how to spell Sartre.

Sadly, I even quoted your post and didn't notice. Long day...

I've been working on a song about the difference between analogy and metaphor.

Back now.

And really, overall respect for the community is why I won't kick Zoe again. Though, my respect has been waning in recent times, I still have enough to want to explain myself, and to hear people out as to why they are upset with me.

I'm upset because "subhuman" is a terrible thing to call anyone, and it's a terrible justification for any action against anyone. It's different from criticizing someone's behavior, because behavior can change; "subhuman" is just an epithet, like "kike," "nigger," or "fag," (and yes, I'm using those examples because I do find it that upsetting), and I don't want to see it used even on someone I agree has been detrimental to the community.

Let us never speak of this again.

(Edit: And of course I meant that for DX, not Micole.)

Nobody

I move that amyth has to be my slave, and do my laundry because she made me cry (and I suspect she made the baby Jesus cry, too).

Any seconds?

Speak of what, Jesse?

Wait, is this real-world child support, where the money goes to buy food for the kids, or MRA fantasyland child support where the women just buy Ferraris and cocaine? -Jessica

I'm upset because "subhuman" is a terrible thing to call anyone, and it's a terrible justification for any action against anyone.

If it helps, I understand that you see it that way, and why you're upset, but it is why I said it, and I still think it. I mean, if it changes your perspective of me, that's fine. I can accept that. I'm just not mincing words. This is how much I hate Zoe. And, have you ever seen me this angry about anything else besides voting, in Buffistaland? Huh?
