Ok, so I'm currently watching CSPAN, and I don't plan on voicing my particular opinion about health care reform at this time. But I do want to share with you something that happened tonight as I was discussing it with a Facebook friend.
You see, this friend and I disagreed. And about halfway through the discussion, I made a comment about economics. And then one of this guy's friends commented on my comment. He told me that I was right, but that I must have gotten a C in econ, unless I blew my professor. He then went on to describe other areas in which I was a dumb woman, and in which I must have blown people to get by.
My friend didn't speak up for me. In fact, he joined in, saying that people like me should be hung for treason. And when I defriended him for his personal attacks? He made comments about how my friends and I were all racists, because he's a person of color, and how we could all go f&*k ourselves.
Can we all agree that this is wildly inappropriate, regardless of anyone's political persuasion?
