I don't think people want to silence Hillary Clinton because she's a woman. They want to silence her because she's annoying regardless of her sex. And also regardless of her gender.

I got blocked by Ken Ham over this. You'd think his god would've intelligently designed him to have thicker skin.

Basically, people don't think about cause and effect any longer. No thought for the unintended consequences of their desired policies.

From that thread, I would like to meet this libertarian, if the avatar is representative:

People need to stop with the bad thing that might even be a legitimate harm is violence or terrorism or whatever. These idiots need to stop thinking only in terms of rhetoric. I give it five years until something that is bad for children, maybe sugary cereals, is called child molestation.

And when it happens, somebody somewhere will produce a study that has a small sample size but allegedly shows that the effects of sugary cereal on brain development or school performance or whatever are the same as in some other questionable study of children victimized in crimes. And the response to anyone who points out the flaws in the studies will be "Wow, whose side are you on?"

Good work.
The hell of it is that, IIRC, he had at least three consecutive tweets on the theme "Imma call it gay mar-riage because 'mar' means 'to ruin, which is what The Gayz did to marriage."' Three in a row. Which in turn suggests that he was quite proud of this incredibly witty and original bit of semanticism.

FFS, if you must play pissy semantic games to remind everybody how butthurt you are over gay people having rights, just stick with the scare quotes National Review used to use whenever they wrote about gay "marriage."

I'm guessing Ham or his social media money makes a point of looking at every response and retweet he ever gets, and blocks anyone who post criticism.
