Comparing apples to apples, Michael Sam is a black. gay. man. He's been made feel unwelcome and unwanted by members of other races, his own race and members of his own family. Though 100s of years of slavery and institutionalized racism is relevant, it doesn't belong to you, and you don't get to claim it. His… » 8/28/14 7:29pm Thursday 7:29pm

After I finish paying off my car, I'm going to keep it, and then I want to buy something a lot simpler, so probably something from the 60s or 70s with an unapologetic V8 with no plastic cover and a large engine bay.

Don't understand your logic. He made a request and it was honored. Also, if you didn't want to work because something at your work was racist, homophobic, or anything else that works against fundamental civil rights principles, you'd probably be justified. » 8/20/14 12:30pm 8/20/14 12:30pm

I'm leery of any attitude which presupposes that someone can make you feel a certain way. Outside influences are just influences, they can't make you feel anything. You have to create the feeling all on your own. Male experiences are certainly different than female ones, and the fact that men have historically forced… » 8/12/14 6:45pm 8/12/14 6:45pm

My take on this. Who gives a fuck? If I can swing it, I'll have a ridiculous two seater my whole life. They can call it my whatever stage of life crisis they want. As soon as I drop the top and scream to 60 in under five secs I couldn't give a shit about anyone or anything. » 8/12/14 6:18pm 8/12/14 6:18pm
