Have either of you ever convinced someone holding the opinion of your adversary in this thread that you were right or that your points had merit?
This is one of the stupidest fucking threads that has ever been on this board.
I'm not on tumblr for this exact reason, I don't enjoy this sort of thing either, but I do enjoy this site and the company of most of you guys. When I saw 'http://whatever.scalzi.com/2012/05/15/straight-white-male-the-lowest-difficulty-setting-there-is/' along with the quote in the OP it was like suddenly realizing I was hanging out with a racist and it made me extremely uncomfortable. I wanted to point out the problems with it and honestly expected it would help, but apparently not. I'm sorry it led to bad feelings.
