If you are about to make a point by comparing something you’re doing to the holocaust or slavery or the oppression of minorities in the post-slavery era, I want you to be sure to do the following …
Take a pause and ask yourself, is what I am about to compare to one of those items listed above really equivocal? Or, could I perhaps be accused of the most offensive sort of hyperbole.
If, after careful pondering you still think your comparison is okay, I want you to stop again. Take a deep breath and then punch yourself in the genitals. Because, it’s not. Not matter how much you think it is, it’s not.
Having to wait a year to see something in a society journal is not the same as having to use the colored bathrooms, you useless bags of fuck.
