  8. Can't we just agree to go with the dictionary...

    Can't we just agree to go with the dictionary definition instead of your own personal one? Because (a) it's really hard for us go guess what your own personal definition of any given word is, which...

    When people have their prejudice pointed out, and their privilege, and their arrogance; it often feels to them like prejudice against them. It's all part of a behavior pattern designed to prevent...

    A lot of the words in my post, and even some of the words in your post, have different meanings than you think they do.

    What we have here, is a failure to communicate.

    I usually agree with that, but it's harder with this subject than usually when the topic includes why different groups of people don't communicate well, and the same patterns that the thread is about...

    One kind of has to to navigate society and survive.

    My gut feeling is still that Land's hairstyle choice came first (because it is such a "Land look") and then Ewing figured "I can work with that" and came up with the plot line. And with all the...

    Have you read Loki, Agent of Asgard?
    He's arguably Marvel's most high-profile queer character, and they don't come more tarnished than the God of Lies.
    Phyla-Vell somehow managed to be both...
