“You know, just to play devil’s advocate here” followed by a blah blah blah of misinformed, judgmental, bigoted nonsense, they are not really playing devil’s advocate or trying to advance debate. They know that what they are about to say is bigoted and ill advised but they would rather not be judged for it.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
