The deputy of Michigan's Attorney General Mike Cox is, uh, being one. Assistant AG Andrew Shirvell has a problem with Chris Armstrong, the gay president of University of Michigans Student Assembly, who is apparently on his radar! Shrivell has a blog where he's dedicated more than 20 posts to attacking Armstrong, whose "agenda was to promote the radical homosexual agenda at the University of Michigan, and to use his position to promote that cause." Loves it!

i do suggest a visit to shirvell's website -- he has thought it out -- the colors, font used, etc to make his sexist attacks on armstrong look legitimate.

this is hate in action.

5. Shirvell sounds like a stalker
Edited on Tue Sep-21-10 12:19 PM by supernova
Blog up since April of this year? All the while logging his hatred for andrew shirvell?

If I were CA, I'd be asking for a restraining order at least.

Geez.

edit: Name correction. I read too fast earlier.

7. Well, that's nice of Mr Armstrong
Edited on Tue Sep-21-10 12:30 PM by supernova
but this kind of behavior doesn't stay within the realm of the verbal. Shirvell is going to want to do something physical in the future. That's the scary thing.

I looked at Shirvell's FB page, it's a mixed bag. Evangelical xtain references and One is something called The 48 Laws of Power?!?

The kid's got delusions of grandeur.

edit: Dang. Cain't spel no mo.

11. Would you support legislation restricting
these kinds of behaviors, since it "doesn't stay within the realm of the verbal."?

And if the answer is yes, do you realize why that would scare people more then the atrocious behavior described?

12. You're makinga leap there I didn't
I'm saying Mr Armstrong better watch his back because Shirvell sounds like exactly the type who could cross over into being a physical bully.

13. Wel we already attributed this kind use of the web.
And it's entirely possible -- not unlike the case with abortion doctors --
That some one physically assault this young man.
Something we as gay people are familiar with.

Stupid and wrong - yes. Cyber bullying or stalking - no way!

14. Cyber-bulling is real and ubiquitous
on a variety of scales.

Personally, I do not do and would not use social networking sites and do not have a cell phone nor use IM (nor IRC though I did some in the 1990s).

Some is personal or web site biased and petty, other instances are covert to influence the body politic by concentrations of power and money and of individuals or cabals of psychological nature. Tinfoil hat maybe, but more likely a product of human nature gone steroid by electronics, fossil fuel, and global crisis in science, economy, social justice, environment, and religion / spirituality.

15. Shirvell, Sir, Needs Psychiatric Intervention: He Is Obviously Too Disturbed To Serve As An Asst AG
No one who was right in his mind could possibly create and maintain that web-site.

This man is suit for damages, and a pile of reversed convictions, just waiting to happen.

The breakdown will be very ugly when it comes.

On line and not be held accountable.
