Oh yeah, personal attacks.

      No Comments on Oh yeah, personal attacks.

If you call someone something (ie, racist, sexist, etc), and then recoil when you are “personally attacked” then you are an idiot, and I have no reservations about saying it.

Accusing someone of an -ism is a damned personal attack because you are attacking their very character. It’s no better than saying they are an idiot or a douche-bag.

So you don’t get to call someone names and then act offended if someone calls you names back.

There is a difference between name-calling (a perfectly acceptable shortcut to making a point, in my arrogant opinion), and wishing for bad things to happen (“I hope you die in a fire” — or, see many of the comments guys like Matt Forney get), and threatening someone (“I’m going to kill you in a fire.”).

And someone telling you that you’re an idiot for saying idiotic things is going to happen on the internet. Put on your big girl panties or go home.
