    It looks like I'm doing what I always do, which is charge at windmills with my lance. Actually we are packing for our vacation and I spent all day today moving stuff off of the wood floors which are being refinished while we are gone.

    I felt like I was taking crazy pills when I read that. Gratifying to see I'm not the only one who found it wildly inappropriate.

    Only so much of this I can take. I may have to light the fuse.

    Thanks. I wrote it at 3am but worried it would evaporate if I posted it then.

    One of my favorite posters PMd me last night and said I may have been reading it wrong. Which was a possibility and that made me feel bad and I thought perhaps I was going to have to go to apologize to that person. But then they doubled down so it turns out what I suspected that person was trying to say was correct. But I won't respond again. I said my piece and there's no way I could articulate a better response that is as good as the one you just posted. That was stellar.

    Honestly, I would have probably left it alone if the poster hadn't insisted they were not being judgmental. What exactly do you think being judgmental is? Because it sure looks a lot like that post.

    "I'm not being judgemental. I just believe this to be wrong. And here: let me try to convince you.'

    Maybe I have an old-fashioned view of things, but if you say sexist things and act in a sexist manner then that makes you sexist. Or if you say racist things and act in a racist manner that makes you racist. I know that generally when people do those things they will frequently follow them up with "But I'm not sexist/racist/homophobic." You don't get to just say that.

    Even if you have a female/black/gay friend?

    Yes. That person is so fantastic they choose to overlook that you are an awful person.
