He not only charmingly called me a "dingbat," but also did not understand the point of my video: to stop the hateful rhetoric thrown at people who want to restore a culture of marriage.
He also gave me more compliments in another Slog post, which featured some of my tweets.
Yesterday, he and I had this lovely conversation on Twitter, where he spelled out his own hypocrisy.
They highly resort to name calling and emotionally charged arguments instead of making fact-based claims. They also are quick to judge others with fallacious statements (i.e. "You hate gay people"). And if you do not hold their views, too bad. You better get rid of your "anti-marriage" views or else suffer the consequences. I thought we lived in a society where we have freedom of speech and thought? Guess not.
Here are a few examples of what I'm talking about from Twitter:
Dan Savage sees young people like myself as a threat to his agenda, because it bugs him that we do not fit his narrative. Dan, we're not giving up and we're not shutting up, no matter how hard you try to silence us. Frankly, it gets worse, not better, when you and your followers spew misogynistic, anti-Christian, hateful, and petty rhetoric.
