Re: Barney Frank, it's about goddamn time someone said it!

Yes, that. Also, I don't think the point was that she was being irrational so much as that people who demonstrate her attitude and opinions will do so obstinately, as if they cannot hear what's being said to them.

That said, calling a black dude a nazi? Golden.

Are we presuming that his abdomen was exposed? If not, doesn't it make sense that his genitals also could have been burned without swingin' in the breeze?

Re: Woman Uses Right to Defend herself, pain ensues

I'm not entirely sure how she managed to set his genitals on fire if they weren't, you know, out. Splash alcohol over his trouser, set them on fire. I'm pretty sure that you could do some damage like that, never tired it myself though. I recall reading a page or two back that the man claims it was ...

Re: Woman Uses Right to Defend herself, pain ensues

No, it's not what anyone here is claiming. The end is getting him to stop, right? So saying that justifies any means used to achieve it would mean we'd be fine if she had stabbed him 75 times with a rusty nail. Or skinned him alive. Or left the bar and thrown a bomb back in through the door on her ...
