Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sat Dec 1, 2012, 09:27 PM

So basically it seems to boil down to, don't hurt people, and if you possibly can, try to keep

others from hurting people. That's IT. What is so fucking controversial and offensive about THAT? I'm honestly astonished at some of these indignant, self-righteous responses - at times I'm almost reminded of someone having an anxiety attack.

3. I hope it doesn't turn into one. But what I said in the OP is simply the gist

of what I, personally, have gathered from the recent threads I've read on that subject - and I think I've read most of them. Plain and simple, don't harm or abuse people - and it's not even gender-specific necessarily. But the harder part, I guess, is trying to prevent other people from doing harm. Often impossible, sad to say.

2. Exactly.

Don't hurt anyone and step in when you see it happening. There's nothing controversial about it. Women's rights, gay rights, racial equality - they're all human rights, and when we insult and treat one group as the enemy, we all lose. It's very, VERY simple.

5. Hey the more rape threads the better

Trudge on and keep educating and all that

Now that I know how much they annoy the trolls....hell...I'm sick to death of people being shut down on this site by a few greasy whiners


But you are right, and I thank you for standing up to the poutraged bully in the one lovely thread

I really try to be diplomatic, but the PTSD brings out my inner badass - and then I say exactly what I think, pretty or not.

You were very diplomatic and I can't tell you how many of us really appreciated your input.
