15. You had a problem with her saying "Hi Democrats"?
And from that, you decided that women don't like that because it makes her look like a "cheerleader?"

Then you write: "Nancy has come very close to spellıng on N-A-N-C-Y at varıous forums I've attended." Would you like to share how you could tell that?

Yeah, we can tell, nothing gendered about that statement at all. :eyes:

"The ıssue you mentioned at the protest was exactly the rıght thıng to do." Well, glad you solved that, then. Your viewpoint was right, hers needed to be dismissed without dialog. Cross that one off the list, good job there. ;)

As for feeling it's unfair for people to challenge your posts so long as you register with a certain name, that's bullshit. Sorry.

The people here can register with whatever username they want. You made a choice to register with your real name, which is fine, but it doesn't make you immune from criticism, and nobody is obligated to change usernames before saying they have a problem with one of your posts. This is another example I think of you deciding everyone is obligated to interact with you on YOUR terms, which, again, is a typically privileged male way of interacting with people. (And again - thankfully, most/almost all of the men here in the MI forum have evolved beyond that, for which I am eternally grateful.)
