I am an old fart who probably graduate from the U before some of your parents were born. I went to grad school, then worked in Big Pharma for nearly 35 years. I was there at the beginning of email use when I was a researcher at Johnson and Johnson. I can guarantee you can do a deep scrub of my entire email, Twitter, text message, and Facebook lives and you will not find one drop of homophobia, misogyny, racism, or anything else.
I am far from a perfect human being, just ask any of my ex’s – they thought I was worthless, but they’d agree that I never did any of that crap.
There is simply no excuse for writing that kind of crap. None. And by doing it, I know for certain what you are. I have an adage that I use when dealing with people on the internet – the second that you have to explain that you are NOT a _______ (racist, homophobe, sexist, etc) then you are.
My actions and words only show me to be a good liberal – I just hope that hating BYU and Georgetown does not betray that belief in myself. Well, one of my ex’s was BYU grad with fungible beliefs about Mormonism, so I don’t hate all of BYU.
