    For once you’re right, though I didn’t see that request.  Which name do you prefer?  I default to your username because I’m really bad at remembering how people spell their names and I hate making that mistake.

    You still aren’t answering my questions though.

    Why not?

    Tell you what.  Pick one, and tell me why you hold that stance.

    May I recommend starting with why you are saying that a woman who wants to defend herself is “creepy”?

    bugbrennan:

    BTW, CONTINUING TO CALL SOMEONE A NAME AFTER THEY ASKED YOU NOT TO MAKES YOU A PRICK. THAT’S AS BAD AS MISGENDERING.

    polerin:

    So? Some trans women hate me.  SHOCKER!  PEOPLE HAVE OPINIONS!

    Why are you still ignoring my questions, bug?

    Is it because you really don’t care about the people that are affected by your actions?

    bugbrennan:

    OH I GOOGLED TERF: Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist

    YEAH, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHO YOU ARE TALKING TO. THIS IS THE PART WHERE I LAUGH, BECAUSE SURELY YOU MUST KNOW I AM HATED BY CERTAIN PEOPLE WHO I AM GUESSING ARE TERFS IN YOUR BOOK

    polerin:

    I’m sorry if it’s confusing, but really, you’d think you would have thought about these things.  But I guess introspection isn’t really the strong point of TERF’s.

    That’s pretty sad isn’t it.  I know it makes me want to weep openly.

    All of those things are you Cathy (bug) Brennan.  All of those things are stuff which I’ve seen you or your friends do and advocate.

    Why, bug?

    Why do you insist on committing social violence against women?  That’s pretty messed up.

    bugbrennan:

    WHAT’S A VIOLENT BUG?

    WHO’S SHAMING WHO?

    WHO’S ATTACKING WHO?

    THIS CONVO CONFUSES ME. 

    polerin:

    You don’t have to physically attack someone to be violent bug, I’m pretty sure you know that.

    Why do you want to deny women the ability to fight off attackers bug?

    Why do you shame women that defend themselves bug?

    Why do you want to deny women the care they need to survive in a world that hates them bug?

    Why do you want to keep women from shelters when they have been sexually assaulted bug?

    Why are you so violent bug?

    Why bug?

    bugbrennan:

    GEMMA OPENED UP THAT DOOR. DID YOU MISS THAT? IT WAS NOT NICE WHAT SHE DID.

    NOT VIOLENT, NOT HATEFUL. I DON’T EVEN KNOW ANY OF YOU. IF YOU ARE GOING TO ACCUSE ME OF BEING VIOLENT, PLEASE BRING PROOF. CALLING PEOPLE PRICKS IS NOT VIOLENT. WE HAVE ALREADY ESTABLISHED THAT NO ONE CARES ABOUT TONE ARGUMENTS.

    I DO KNOW THAT FEMALE IS NOT MALE. THAT SEEMS TO UPSET SOME OF YOU. TOO BAD.

    polerin:

    Yes, you’re right, she’s totally trolling people by fighting back when someone is posting her personal details.

    Why are you so violent bug?

    You load us up with all these false circular arguments, you shift goalposts, you consistently work to waste our time and energy, our love, and our caring.

    Why so much hate bug?

    bugbrennan:

    WHO IS BEING STALKED? GEMMA? LOL. GEMMA IS A TROLL.

    polerin:

    Note to others: in the interest of preserving the general readability of this thread (why?) I’ll respond up top.

    So, you’re saying I should leave another woman to fight off a stalker by herself?  No thanks.  You don’t get to attack one of my sisters and then tell me to mind my own business.  But I’d love to have a further productive discussion about how you aren’t implying that I’m a violent psychopathic rapist with a weapons fetish.

    With a checklist that is TOTALLY not aimed at me.  Nope!

    But lets not ever turn that same eye on your own violent rhetoric.  Cuz that’s just out of the question.

    bugbrennan:

    STOP TALKING TO AND ABOUT ME AND WE CAN AVOID THESE LITTLE CHATS. OR FOCUS ON THE CONTENT OF THE ARGUMENT AND WE WOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE PRODUCTIVE DISCUSSIONS.

    YOU FOLLOW YOUR BLISS. DO WHATEVER YOU LIKE. WE JUST NOTICE THESE THINGS AND FIND THEM INTERESTING.

    HERE IS THE GENERAL CHECKLIST (NOT SAYING THIS IS YOU, I DO NOT KNOW YOU)

    WEAPONS? CHECK

    VIOLENT THREATS? CHECK

    HAIR TRIGGER TEMPER WHEN SOMEONE DISAGREES WITH YOU? CHECK
