And there an awful lot of folks who seem to think that anyone who has a problem with the alarming number of able-bodied people on welfare is instead saying that. Or that anyone who is critical of way gays and transgenders seem to think that instead of tolerance, they are entitled to full-blown societal acceptance and approval of everything they do or
all blacks are lazy, welfare-hogging thugs. Or that any who sees a pattern between most of the violent terrorism in the world and the Muslim religion and simply point this out means we think
you are trashing gays and transgender people, claiming they are sick freaks who need to go away.
all Muslims are evil and need to be destroyed
Those examples of the extreme hyperbole and over the top rhetoric employed to attempt to delegitimize and demonize all opposition to your own points of view are part of the problem.

But, ATS is very much an eggshells place when controversial social issues are a concern.
does anyone else feel like they're walking on eggshells while online?

There was a post recently by someone who said the problem he had with "these people" (transgender females) was that they were scumbags who frequented bars and tried to trick straight men to go home with them, and that they all strip in strip clubs. It's hyperbole all right, but it's not my hyperbole - he actually wrote that!
The "sickening part" is that most of these folks (transgenders) are forced to work in the Sex Trade because uptight A-Holes are always at odds with their own sexuality and because the transgender is usually in the minority, they find a 'common enemy" and 'Righteous Turd' gets an angry mob to agree. Then of course, they'll either go home and get on Wanktube and 'knock one off' via Cialis™ or Viagra™ and then go to the Strip Bar and 'fall for it...again...' feel guilty on Sunday at 'The Pew' then the self-loathing cooks and cooks ...
The only issue I have is the press that Caitlyn Jenner received and then the awards for "Woman of The Year" and She hadn't been a Female for a year... ANY single Mother is MORE deserving, ANY Female that had to actually "struggle and overcome" when it was a natural struggle i.e. Male skips out on Mother and She has to work 2 crappy jobs to feed Her kids, while Caitlyn has a hilltop mansion to look down on others... Now She has "thinkers"...
I think I read that thread and bit My 2 index fingers (typers) on that one but revealed My thoughts earlier on the thread that She may be having second thoughts...
