      You're missing the point, although I'm unclear on whether it's intentional.

      Let me spell it out for you as clearly as possible: if you're like me, you benefit from all sorts of systemic discrimination whether you like it or not. If you want to get rid of said-discrimination, you need to take action against it. This isn't meant to hurt your feelings, but this really isn't about you. Here are your options:

      • If you believe that people face discrimination, help them liberate themselves (or at least stay out of their way).
      • If you believe that people don't face discrimination, read a book. Literally any book.

      I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.

        You are missing the point; and those are YOU'RE options. You are responding to one of my options right now; not accept this groupthink drivel. Happy to keep responding, no questions for you, thanks!

          "your" would be the possessive form you're looking for. Accuracy in a debate is important, logically.

            And you know a debate is truly over when one party is left resorting to grammar retorts. Grasping at straws, are you (yoda voice).

              I thought it was over with the name calling, but call it where you see it. I'm poking fun at you because despite your huff-and-puff as the only rational actor in the room, you're human and make mistakes. As for grasping at straws, it's 5:30 on a Friday and god help me I'm reading your comments on Designer News rather than slipping into an end of week whiskey with my friends; I'll grasp at what I can take.

              Maybe take a break from the keyboard. When things cool down try to wonder why so many people took issue with your points (and how you stated them). Even if you wind up not agreeing, at least you'd put the effort into understanding rather than dismissing with a worn-in conclusion that you came here to grieve over.

                Life evolves past high school popularity contests; didn’t get the memo? And besides, looking at the upvotes I’m pleasantly surprised by the show of support. Not surprised others don’t want to deal with the mindless horde like I have.

                I will never tire of standing up for logic and virtue. Enjoy your whiskey, I’m headed to my friends studio to unwind too. Let me know if you need any more clarity during your journey of self loathing.

              Good thing you got an edit in on that 'retorts', right? ;)

                Meh, touchscreens don’t work great in the shower but I wanted to keep you focused on more than minutiae ;)
