thanks Nicholas, but i don't feel i'm either ignorant or suffering. If
anyone chooses to consider my use of the word "rape" as a
tongue-in-cheek metaphor to be an expression of insensitivity toward
women's suffering, then you're mistaken. My sister was raped once, and
she still suffers from it. That's one reason i have done volunteer work
for Women Against Rape.
i consider Freedom of Speech to be a fundamental right, and i will
exercise that right.
however, Noisebridge does have it's own rules. Therefor, Jeffery Carl, i
encourage you to propose that johny radio be banned from noisebridge for
using the word "rape" as a metaphor. If i am asked to leave noisebridge,
i shall comply without argument.
Stick It In Your Ear!
