      I've never been a huge fan of the headlights and taillights on these, but otherwise I'm a fan of the Sonic. I think it's an underrated driver's car, having rented one, and I've always liked the...

      What makes you think she needed, was looking for, or appreciated your acknowledgement? Do you really imagine that her attire and perfume were for your benefit? For that matter, are you seriously...

      It's much less common for me, and generally I don't perceive it as harassment because it's not about my ass or getting me to smile. In my case, it's annoying and intrusive, but infrequent. If it...

      Take it from my wife, who grew up in a macho culture: it's unspeakably annoying to a woman to have to deal with catcalls and pushy dudes. She moved here in part to get away from it. She didn't...

      Nobody's incapable of heinous acts, but I think it's far more likely that "Father" is a liar who's trying to maintain a false, self-serving narrative of Christian persecution than it is that he...

      But the problem at hand is right-wing Christian fundamentalism. That group constitutes the vast majority of opponents to marriage equality. That group has been incredibly well-organized, -funded,...

      Here's the thing, though: a flag has a certain type of symbolic meaning. You don't need to bear the guilt of others, but part of flying a flag is communicating something to other people. What is a...

      And like I said: you are drawing a false equivalency between the two sides.
    11. False equivalency.

      False equivalency.
    12. What on Earth that's positive does it represent...

      What on Earth that's positive does it represent for you? I'm honestly kind of aghast, so forgive my incredulity, but....in practice, what has it been used for that is in any way positive?

      It's very hard, as someone who's basically got no dog in the fight, for me to understand how it's possible to be proud of the Confederate flag. Even if you try to abstract it from the ideological...

      As I noted earlier, churches are expressly excluded from definitions of "public accommodation" used in anti-discrimination statutes. Churches and officiants that do not wish to perform SSMs will not...

      I suspect that that issue - if we so dignify it - will be handled in much the same way that pharmacy workers are not required to dispense Plan B if they are morally opposed to it. Find another...

      I'm trying my hardest to make it clear that my negative emotions are directed at the militant fundamentalist minority, not at the entire faith in general. A Catholic high school was loving and safe...

      Why? Strikes me as a feature, not a bug. There's no real reason for a passenger to be controlling vehicle functions. I realize that the central screen isn't going anywhere, but I do think its...

      Having driven a vehicle with this setup, I happen to really like it. It keeps the display up in your line of vision, but without a high, bulky binnacle surrounding it - so the dash can be flatter...

      Exactly this. And I'd add that a lot of those handpicked laws seem designed simply to make life as uncomfortable as possible for those whose choices conflict with fundamentalist beliefs - not...
