    there was instead much hostility and apparent immediate dismissal that such a thing was even possible. i try to respond to most comments when possible and appropriate.

    what happened there, and why i wrote this followup, was a classic example of racism denying via claims about popular culture.

    not understanding is one thing and then asking honest questions to better follow through. being unwilling to understand because the very fact that racism and sexism are operative in popular culture--and you simply can't accept such a thing about your favorite show--is an exercise in racism denying.

    "as you do it with a teaspoon, not a ladle."

    again, not interested in hand holding or other silliness. drink at your own pace.
