This thread, on anti-transgender bills, was having some interesting discussion. People talking about their evolving stance on trans rights, people talking about specific strategies for fighting transphobic laws, people talking about specific legislators and governors, people talking about the effect of the laws on the trans community.
Right up until post 78. Lance shows up, and asks, as he always does, “Why is the little boy’s room separate from the little girl’s room?” He’s asked this question about a hundred times. People have explained it to him in very small words. But he thinks it’s a great deep point.
I could not possibly smoke enough dope to think there’s anything deep about that point. Knowing how that asshole shits up a thread once he enters it, I tried not to respond. But goddamn he’s tempting: he’s so dumb, his points are so easy to refute, that it’s very difficult not to respond.
And so, sure enough, he’s taken over the goddamn thread. Of the next 150 or so posts, an even 50 (at this writing) are him, either repeating his sooper-deep question or insisting on what a smart feller he is. Another 58 or so are responses to him (at least half a dozen of which are mine–see below). Of those 128 posts, only about 20 aren’t about him and his idiotic question about why bathrooms are segregated, a question that’s been explained to him so many fucking times before.
Thus this pit. First, lance, goddamn you’re a jackass. You’re likely to spontaneously avatarize as the immortal embodiment of the Dunning-Kruger effect; idiots everywhere will worship at your altar and pray for your favor. You have no idea how stupid your are, hilariously and painfully insisting that the rest of us just can’t get your points.
Second, I pit people like me. Why am I responding to him even to the small degree that I am? His shit stinks the most in that thread, but I’m contributing. I’ll do so no more once I link to this thread.
Third, though, iiandyiiii, get the hell over here. You know that that thread isn’t about his obsession with why the boy’s room and the girl’s room are separate places. You know you’ve had that conversation with him elsewhere. You know he could start a new thread on it if he actually cared about the issue. But you’re feeding him, my god how you’re feeding him! STOP FEEDING HIM!
That thread is basically ruined, mostly due to Lance’s idiocy, significantly due to the enabling of posters like iiandiiii who treat his inquiries as something that belong any goddamn place lance wants them, and partly due to people like me who respond to him at all.
Don’t let him shit up threads, people.
