Spleen Cringe Mudcat - changes in style and profile (361* d) RE: Mudcat - changes in style and profile 07 May 15


Musket(s), we know certain posters on Mudcat have abhorant and medieval views about the LBGT community. These views have been challenged repeatedly, and often in a manner that's more likely to entrench them than win over those who hold them to a more fully human perspective. The approach clearly hasn't worked, because you haven't won them over one iota. All that's happened is you've created a situation which allows the homophobic wing of Mudcat to portray themselves as a) victims and b) the reasonable ones. How does that make anything better for anyone, let alone those on the receiving end of oppression and discrimination? For posters such as myself, who share your views on the issue, it actually looks like you follow them from thread to thread waiting for them to say something you can pounce on which I can predict you'll deny. Yes, we know you don't like their views and neither do we, but it doesn't stop your approach looking crass, bullying and tedious. Positive statements about the stuff you do believe might be a lot more effective than the constant harrying and slightly stalky stuff. Frankly, when you're on a roll, you don't make Mudcat a very desirable place to visit. I wonder if we'd have to put up with less homophobic crap if some of these endless arguments weren't prolonged and magnified with such relentless zeal. I will also predict that you'll say something to the effect that you don't care that others find your approach boorish and boring, because your moral imperative to fight the good fight on even the most pointless of battlegrounds morally trumps such considerations... am I right?

And none of my business, but I wish the three of you would each come out in your own right. The shared identity is start to suck. One would be forgiven for imagining you work shifts to keep up the surveillance of the people you feel the need to police.

all of this in my opinion, of course. An I hope this doen't seems ad hominem - it's about your posting style rather than you.
