namatad: SilentStrider: Who?

I always thought she was a lesbian. Oh wait, she was born again recently?
ROFL

douchebag/hater: Funny but I thought 'Freedom of Speech' is a very liberal idea. I guess not when it's something you don't like.


Funny but I thought that meant you can also disagree with something someone says. I guess not if they don't agree with you.

Tell you what. Get back to us when Liberals organize a "burn your Michelle Shocked CDs" event like your crowd did to the Dixie Chicks. We'll wait.

DreamyAltarBoy: JohnnyApocalypse: I'm guessing most the posters here are under 30 or just weren't into the 80s indie scene. Michelle Shocked was (was) a fairly big name once.

I'm old enough to have been there, but I never understood the appeal back then. I thought her fade into obscurity was well deserved. Now I guess she's nailing the coffin shut on her career from the inside. Best of luck to you homophobic biatch.


I am sure she also wishes you the best of luck....

douchebag/hater: inclemency: Hey biatch, despite your irrational hatred my two male friends are married. Die. Oh, and you look like a bitter lesbian, good luck with that.

You're soooooo tolerant for a liberal.


There's a huge difference between irrational hatred, which as inclemency pointed out does include hatred of gay people and rational hatred such as hatred towards a bigot.

The first is intolerant, the second isn't. This shouldn't be difficult.

""West A" is known for both its influential pastor, dynamic city ministries and for its celebrity members, which include Magic Johnson, Denzel Washington, Stevie Wonder, Michelle Shocked, and Angela Bassett."


Soooooo...she likes black guys?

ox45tallboy: I don't know but of all places for an anti-gay rant, I don't think San Francisco is the best choice.


No kidding. San Fran? WTF?

douchebag/hater: Lionel Mandrake: I thought she was gay.

Or at least strong bi

Funny but I thought 'Freedom of Speech' is a very liberal idea. I guess not when it's something you don't like.


Personally I think she was drunk/high and kidding.
At least that's what her mea culpa will be as she goes of the education camp.


I know you're a troll, but just to point this out to people who might agree with you:

A. The government is not silencing her, so the first amendment does not apply
B. Saying what you want does not mean you don't have to then suffer the consequences of saying what you want.

People do want some groups silenced because of what they say, and typically it's the liberals that want to shut up conservatives, ala People wanting the Westboro Baptists to be labeled a hate group.

Here's the thing.  When it comes to the point where you hate the other party and want them to shut up, it approaches that barrier.

If people did have the power, LOTS of people would be deprived of their free speech.  The intent is the same, the ability is all that's lacking.

I'm talking about the philosophy that led to the right being recorded as is.  Not saying I don't want people to shut up, or that I'm right to do so, so keep that in mind as you go on.

Now, you take a large group of people who want Person/PartyX to shut up.  Here it's not only approached the barrier, it's stroking it lovingly, debating jumping over the fence and throttling the idiot practicing free speech.

Now, this group, will passive aggressively attempt to shut the guy up, as if trying to pick up that barrier and move it, so that they're within rights. Verbal abuse, drowning the guy out, etc.

That does go against the sentiment behind free speech.  It is a real phenomenon.  It's not "illegal", no but it's there.  It's akin to the whole "i'm not touching you I'm not touching you".  It can also amount to provocation, which in the US and other countries, can validate physical assault upon you.  Some gets in your face long enough and hard enough and you pop them, you might just get away with it.

It's a grey area, this passive aggressive technique.  I find it's striking similar, morally and socially, to someoen who makes false rape cases because they're pissed off for some drama bullshiat.  People that act out and make false claims to get even.  Can have lasting impact on people's lives.

I say grey area, because one begets the other, and often it's so convoluted, you've got to write both parties off as assholes and get on with your day.

Now, that doesn't apply in this thread, mind you, just discussing the philosophy behind it(as much as I hate philosophy, it's got it's apt places).  The singer said X, and left the stage.  No one is barring her from speaking, or even harrassing her that we know of.  All we know is that one business is distancing themselves so as not to sully their own reputation.  All of which is perfectly fine.

Freedom of speech is not the issue. The free market is.

douchebag/hater: RedT: In before the "b..b..but the First Amendment" constitutional scholars.

Meaning what exactly?

You hate her for saying this but when Muslim calls for the death of America or gays or the subjugation of women or forcing women to have clitorectomies not...one....word.

And you say 'That's a religion saying that stuff so it's ok' and yet...YET when a Christian comes out with something you consider 'stupid' you have a fit.

You are what is called a 'hypocrite'.

Why does every single lesbian I know end up going shiat-eating crazy?

This is serious. She could have a brain tumour.

It's NOT a TUMOR.

Oh and p.s. her cover of Johnny Cash's One Piece at a Time is pretty awesome too. I refuse to stop liking her music just because I don't like her views.

theorellior: wraithmare: True! But her concerts certainly attract that crowd. Was one of a handful of men at the show I went to back in the 90s. Good show!

Hah! In 1996 or thereabouts I saw her in Austin at a club called The Back Room. Its nickname was "The Black Doom" because it usually hosted metal, punk, and thrash shows. I'd actually seen Prong and Clutch there myself. Having Suzanne Vega in that venue was pretty weird, but it rocked surprisingly hard. And there were actually other men in the crowd!


I lost a good portion of my hearing there at a Joe Ely show.
Had tinnitus for 3 days.

Let's face it: it's not as though Shocked can't recover from this.

If she starts dating a woman, all will be forgiven.
And if she beats that woman bloody, she'll get a Grammy.
 
2013-03-21 03:36:25 AM  
She claimed today she was being ironic or something and the club cut the mic and lights before she could finish the joke.

I continue to believe fervently that anyone who is at all concerned that someone may be having sex in a manner different from some tradition wants to be having sex in a manner different from that same tradition, and can't because they won't let themselves.

I don't care if gay people have NASAL sex, I don't care if lesbians have sex only 8-10 times per year. But if someone tells me gay dudes get 30 blowjobs a year minimum, I'm strangely concerned. Not for them, but concerned that I'm being significantly short-changed by traditional marriage.

You cant say you weren't warned though.

It's one of the oldest jokes out there.

'Why's the bride smiling?... No more blowjobs...'
