  •  You're right. (0+ / 0-)

    I've been hard on Jason Collins. I find deceit hard to countenance.  It's insidious, always harmful.

    Obviously, not everyone sees it that way. Oh we'll.

    •  You're an awful person. (0+ / 0-)

      To read what I wrote - and a personal story I shared with you - and to write that comment in response.

      Just awful.

      •  Why did you take that personally? (0+ / 0-)

        You asked why I was lashing out at Collins.  I answered why.  Everything in that comment was about Collins.  Nothing was about you, your husband, his story or yours.  Obviously, I didn't make that clear.  I'm sorry about that, especially if it hurt you.

        I don't know you and you don't know me.  All we know about each other is contained in these few comments which I'm faintly certain are insufficient to draw any conclusions about the character of the other.  Look, we couldn't even communicate with one another without miscommunication/misinterpretation.  It's an unfortunate byproduct of writing in one's own shorthand.  For that I am truly sorry.  But if you think I'm an awful person because of one point of view on one issue, then it should comfort you to know that we will almost certainly never meet.
