“File this under "duh."”

Contrecoup on Aug 3, 2013 at 23:49:49

“Well, the point of the article is not to say people like music that they like. It is to say there is a totally non-scientifically determined contradiction between what people say they want to hear and what they actually seek out.
However, if we assume the implied conclusion is true, that people state in public that they love new music but really only listen to their old stuff, that would be somewhat telling about these people, and would be a surprise to me. Hardly a "Duh" moment.”

“I don't think the statement "...I have been an outspoken supporter of civil and human rights for gay and lesbian people" is even slightly ambiguous.  She said the words "civil and human rights." Spoke them, aloud, in the same sentence, in reference to gay rights.

“Sadly the precedent has already been set that host countries don't need to respect human rights. Berlin, 1936. Beijing, 2008.”

Robert Eckert on Aug 4, 2013 at 15:16:26

“Beijing did not arrest or threaten any athletes or spectators in 2008, and even the Nazis gave specific assurances (which they kept) that there would be no harassment of "non-Aryans" in 1936.”

“You do realize that just because we say these are "basic human rights" does not make it true, right?

While I agree this is a really sad state of affairs, it is not our right to force our views on others because we feel that ours are right and superior and that theirs are wrong. If the people of Russia find a way to change this, then so be it. If they cannot, however, then we need to start learning to respect others rather than bomb them and create more enemies because we think we know better.”

“To anyone who says that gay rights should not be equated with civil rights, perhaps you should research what Coretta Scott King herself said on the subject.

To quote:

"For many years now, I have been an outspoken supporter of civil and human rights for gay and lesbian people."

It's not a competition. It's not about who has been persecuted the most. It's not about who suffered the most. It's that when one group suffers, we all suffer.”

“Yes, I think instead of looking at it like homophobia, racism, sexism maybe it should be, let's treat everyone (straight, gay, black, white, Hispanic, Christian, Muslim etc.) with respect and when that doesn't happen then there is a problem. I don't know who to to attribute it to, but the quote, "Civil rights is human rights" seems apropos here.”

“I don't think people want to make it a competition. Some do feel that civil rights is still a struggle for blacks, however, it is really no longer addressed. Everything is about gay rights ( no problem with that, there should be no laws making someone unequal to another based on who they want to have sex with) while it's taken a half black president 5 years to speak on one issue in the black community”

“to take it a bit further.....from another user - --

"Gays and lesbians stood up for civil rights in Montgomery, Selma, in Albany, Georgia and St. Augustine, Florida, and many other campaigns of the Civil Rights Movement, and many of these courageous men and women were fighting for my freedom at a time when they could find few voices for their own, and I salute their contributions." -- Coretta Scott King

"Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood." -- Coretta Scott King

"We are all tied together in a single garment of destiny... I can never be what I ought to be until you are allowed to be what you ought to be, I've always felt that homophobic attitudes and policies were unjust and unworthy of a free society and must be opposed by all Americans who believe in democracy." -- Coretta Scott King

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." -- Martin Luther King Jr”

“Let's ask Coretta Scott King what she thought:

“For many years now, I have been an outspoken supporter of civil and human rights for gay and lesbian people.”

"Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood. This sets the stage for further repression and violence that spread all too easily to victimize the next minority group. "

So, you were saying?”

gutfreund on Aug 3, 2013 at 17:46:50

“I was saying, and still am, that to place an equivalency on the plight of the LGBT community and that of black Americans before and during the Civil Rights Movement is ludicrous.  I see Mrs King saw a similarity, not much more than that.  I notice you omitted any reference to the position MLK's daughter, Bernice, has taken on the issue.
That's what I'm saying.”

“The transitive verb form of "Except" is defined as: "to leave out, exclude."

A transitive verb requires an object or concept to be grammatical.

For instance:

"The children are excepted from the admission fee."

"Police are excepted from driving the speed limit."

"Misspelled words are excepted from the rules of jeopardy."

"Judges have excepted words from the rules of Jeopardy."

"Judges have excepted words before."

Look at it this way. If you "except" something, it has been "excepted" and you have given it an "exception."

You may want to spend some quality time with your dictionary.”
