That is the point. Voting for someone without even having a clue who they are. Not very informed at exactly what the person voted for was trying to prove. Not at all irrelevant.That's irrelevant.
People voting a straight Republican ticket could account for those without them even knowing who was running.
That's not "support' nor "choosing".That is the point. Voting for someone without even having a clue who they are. Not very informed at exactly what the person voted for was trying to prove. Not at all irrelevant.
Absolutely, there was no intention of actually becoming sheriff in the first place. Debate, or trying to make some kind of point is an extremely lame reason to run for the position. It really serves no purpose in the long run.That's not "support' nor "choosing".
It has nothing to do with the candidate's motives, which seems mainly to be making himself the center of attention.
Voting a straight ticket is about knowing who they aren't.
They have a clue what he's not.Voting for someone without even having a clue who they are.
So you say.She does want to be Sherriff. She is just realistic about her chances.
Fairly common issue. Not knowing for sure if they are female or male or trying to pretend something. Thankfully its not to hard to just use generic terms if its not possible to just avoid the situation. Between the the race issues and these gender issues its getting pretty normal to just keep the contact to the bare minimum and go on down the road. That way its less likely any offense can be taken. Let them do their thing but leave me out of it.She?
Pretty sure that is a guy with a little glamor touch.
Can you tell us where the rainbow/pride flag hurt you?Say for instance someone is showing their cattle at a county fair. Is it appropriate to make sure everyone who walks by is acutely aware of a cow owner's sexual orientation? Should there be rainbow or gay pride flags over their cattle's pens?
There are just some places where proclaiming your sexual orientation does not fit in any way you slice it
I think your cautionary note on when pride morphs into superiority or hyper-nationalism is well-placed and worthy of reflection. There is a difference between being proud of who you are and feeling you are better than "the others", and the line can get blurry.I don't even understand the concept of pride in an inherent and immutable characteristic. "Proud to be ...", when filled in with something like race just seems to be another form of "othering". Perhaps it can be innocuous but it can certainly go way too far, as we witnessed the middle of last century.
I would prefer to reserve pride for accomplishments or character traits, which are the result of choices, rather than anything anyone has no control over.
I will gladly apologize to any individual I personally have damaged.So, if as a society, we have to make a point of pumping up that pride with an occasional parade, rainbow flag or speciality cable TV channel, it just seems like we are helping to undo some of that damage.
