    What path would you have chosen if you were the assigned ref to this Dragons/Tigers game, and you were aware IF would be playing?

    This being a referee site and all.

    Free speech is far from a notion. It gives you the freedom to speak against any bigotry view that which you do not agree.

    Who is the bigoted little man in your post, or is that a figure of speech?

    There is a perfectly legitimate view, outside the USA, that speech in the oppression or hatred of protected characteristics is not to be protected.

    I think you have made a perfectly legitimate decision to live in USA.

    How broad is this perfectly legitimate view that you speak of? What are protected characteristics? Who decided what protected characteristics are? And how are they protected?, by laws?, how are laws enforced?

    There are about 70-74 countries where homosexuality is illegal. Is this perfectly legitimate view in the remaining 120 or so countries?

    Are fat people a protected characteristic? or are rugby referees? or police officers? or Vegans? or cyclops? or fossil fuel burners? or drunks

    I need a group, what group am I in? Oh I'm in the group that lets stupid people talk, and let them show how stupid they can be, and how fragile their view, and even that they have this wacko view.

    Thx for letting me talk

    Stop being an ass.

    Simon and L'irl,

    Where do writers come up with these perfectly legitimate ideas?, or just food for thought?

    I'm not sure what point you're trying to make here.

    I don't remember either. I think I was poking fun at your use of "perfectly" to emphasize how non inclusive you are toward other humans.
    Not all humans are as brilliant as you and I. Some may find "perfectly" to mean flawless and undebatable. Remember not everyone has an average i.q. like us and they may need help with their indoctrination and they need help thinking for themselves.

    If you read articles on IFs original post most are paraphrased. With validity of the post in question it is not intended to be hateful. I find the post silly, but the post included a warning and did offer a solution. His efforts were unoriginal and probably not effective. I doubt he led anyone to repentance. However, counter posts with slanted words and vitriol are show lack of objectivity of writer and are equally ineffective.

    Name calling does not bolster ones cause or case either. It is simply a method of venting anger. Ironically, that is why trump is both hated and loved. He loves name calling. Hated because he uses the tactics of the left and has been successful (in elections) in using them. Simple tactics that work "perfectly"
