Yeah, I discovered that recently myself!
NEITHER CAN FABIO.
I try until I reach the point where I feel the conversation is no longer happening in good faith. :)
Unity is a nice goal in theory. In practice unity means the silencing of dissent. Dissent and disagreement are normal, healthy things that should be allowed to exist in any political movement. It's how we learn from one another and grow as people and activists.
I can't believe you're still gray here. :P
I'm honestly not sure. As with many things in the twitterverse, the origins are hard to track.
