You must adore the All Star race as well as The Clash, then.

No, I didn’t. People who sincerely want to be schooled will also say microaggressions in the process because they don’t know what not to say. What I’m saying is don’t question their sexuality or gender, not in any way. If someone wants to be called they/them, accept those pronouns and use them. Read more

I didn’t look closely enough, but yes, that’s the microaggression that gets aimed at a lot of non-binary people. Malicious abuser is a more accurate description than critical parties. The abusers can go fuck themselves six ways with a cactus about to hatch tarantulas. I might be opinionated about this topic.

Lots of alternative pronouns have been tried over the last several decades, but the choice that English speakers have fallen into is they/them for non-gendered, non-neutered pronouns. That’s how languages evolve. It’s very difficult to force something that isn’t organic into a language. That’s why the ze/zhe and all Read more

Wrong kind of questioning. It’s understandable and acceptable to ask, “Why do you prefer to be called them?” What is completely unacceptable and downright cruel is to ask, “Why don’t you look like a them? Why not boy/girl/other? Why do you think you can ignore pronouns?” The first is a query for understanding. The Read more

No, they/them are not binary pronouns. Many gender fluid, gender queer, and other people in the QUILTBAG communities prefer they/them so they don’t get caught in the binary of he/she. They/them could be any one of a number of genders, variable or not. Read more

No, he doesn’t have to be convicted. Pardons have happened before the judicial system got highly involved. Nixon is the best example, but there are others, esp. under Bill Clinton.

You’re not wrong, esp. about who Rump appeals to the most. You’re also not right about why middle class white moms voted for Rump. It wasn’t just that they didn’t like H. Clinton. It’s that they didn’t pay attention to Rump. Read more

My family moved from a 1500 sq. ft. house in the Kansas City ‘hood to a 3800 sq. ft. house in the northern suburbs. That was about a year and a half ago. You’ve done better at decorating and furnishing than we have. *grin* Congrats!

Yes, Niro, definitely. We love ours. My husband is 6'1" and he doesn’t have to put the driver’s seat back all the way. Inside is roomier than a SUV. We know that because we drove a Sorrento and hated it. You will love the gas mileage, too. As for the kid learning to drive? A hybrid doesn’t have the same petal motions, Read more

That is a gorgeous green, and the only reason we didn’t get a green Kia Niro is that they had a more gorgeous blue.

Depends on the sponsor and their goals at the time. Also, depends on who is leveraging Larson. If it’s Hendrick, well, that’s a lot of weight for sponsors to gravitate to. If it’s Stewart-Haas, well, Haas sponsors a lot of their own cars. So does Hendrick, for that matter. Chevrolet’s Larson suspension is indefinite Read more

Larson completed NASCAR’s mandatory sensitivity training within a month or so of his incident. World of Outlaws considered that achievement enough to reinstate him. Since then, he’s continued to educate himself about why what he did was wrong. He and Bubba Wallace have had conversations about this issue, not just at Read more

I think you’re mostly right about why they’re having 2 races at Bristol, but using dirt there. Bristol is too popular to not run twice, but Bristol at least has a hint of history that allows the dirt race to happen. Read more
