It's like he's really here!

Given the account that posted that, perhaps it actually is him. :rolleyes:

I imagine Marty ‘s response:

“This is my last straw. Last thing the world needs is another homophobe. I’ll go ahead and say it: she deserved what she got.

Also, she was a child and all children are awful and deserve extermination.

Also, she was a Jew.”

Wasn't she bisexual herself? I swear I read something at some point that made it clear that she was bi.

Sounds like that wouldn't be inconsistent with thinking men should 'go with women'.

I got banned under one account (basically because of Martinus, btw), and came back with another (and a different back story to hide my return). That was now over 13 years ago and you can't seem to get over it.

I'm embarrassed. I've been making the mistake of associating with you. It won't happen again. :)

Yeah but half that period you spent hiding your identity.
Melinda was mine til the time that I found her
Holding Jim, loving him.
Then Sue came along, loved me strong
That's what I thought
But me and Sue, that died too.

In fairness, not from everyone and I would have been banned again if I just came back as my old identity.

I forgive your previously-closeted existence.
The medievals were only too right in taking nolo episcopari as the best reason a man could give to others for making him a bishop. Give me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you care to call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers.

Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people.

Wasn't she bisexual herself? I swear I read something at some point that made it clear that she was bi.

Hadn't heard that before, so I googled.

Yes, she had a couple passages in her diaries (which are usually edited out) where she describes a fairly strong physical attraction to a female friend, including wanting to kiss her and touch her breasts.  And she also describes a fairly strong physical attraction to a male friend as well.

But she was a girl in her early teens.  I don't know that it is helpful to start applying labels to her that she wouldn't have even known existed.

She was 15, she didn't know.

Agreed. I think that's probably fairly normal behaviour for a young teen.
