    I DO expect them to not be rapists.  That's really part of the bare minimum that I expect of someone.  Just don't fucking rape people.  It's really not that hard.

    •  You misunderstand, I don't think he's a hero (0+ / 0-)

      I think he's done a massive public service with Wikileaks and is, according to reports, a despicable scumball in private life.

      But the two things have nothing to do with each other.

      As an opera buff, I got over that sort of hangup a long time ago. I wouldn't be able to listen to Wagner otherwise. (As conductor Arturo Toscanini said about somebody else, but it's thoroughly applicable: "As a composer I take off my hat to him. As a person I put on ten hats.")

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!
