If I had known that daring to bring a furry fandom defense incident into my generalized plea for understanding and tolerance alongside other examples (both big and small) would just spawn more flames, I’d never have tried in the first place. I’m gonna think twice before posting anything emotional and lengthy and philosophical again; I’m not sure I’m very good at it, given how my arguements are so poorly constructed / easily shot down. I just really wish people would try to be nicer to each other…
Instead I’ll stick to short and philosophical, and close with this bit from True Meaning of Life:
Q: When people are dying over in Bethlehem, am I wrong for just working in my garden?
A: When weeds grow in your garden, is it proper for arabs and jews to perpetuate a conflict?
UE06 should have some development by monday night. I’m wrangling the outline to try and make it more cheerful. My mood and the House’s general tension post-ue05 / Mallory’s tension about the REC Test are trying to steer it towards frustration and despair. After UE05 we need comedy very badly, I think.
