And the fact that you chose to go down the path you did means I'm done with you. You make assertions about me and my parents? You can't educate a classroom full of half-interested high school kids, yet you deign to be an expert at analyzing someone? If you're too stupid to see that I don't talk my way around ANY topics, then there's not much I can do. So not only are you a chickenshit, but you are not terribly bright, either. Frankly, I'm so pissed off that I don't feel the need to aggravate myself any further. You're a fuckhead. And I most sincerely mean that. Goodbye.
C'mon AT. When you try to be so diplomatic the point becomes obscure. Just come right out and say what you think!
I will give it to Ohio that both his abilities and his profession, of which he is justly proud, are constantly maligned here. So I think a little snippishness is to be tolerated. Perhaps a little too far this time? Maybe, but I think we've all done it at one time or another.
GJ, you and I have gone around a few times. Sometimes you make me so angry I want to cuss you, also But I would never decide to claim that your parents abused you simply because we disagree. While I feel that some of our disagreements are very, very important, they are just viewpoint differences. However, to state that my parents neglected, molested, or abused me because I disagree with someone is simply over the line. Way, way over the line. And then he doubled down on it. So no, there is no "snippishness" here.
Moreover, I don't necessarily attack him. I believe that he embodies a big chunk of what is wrong with the educational system, namely, the penchant for placing blame anywhere BUT the educational system. While it's not always their fault, allowing certain things to continue, and turning a blind eye to horrible teachers and results is ludicrous. I've never maligned his abilities, until I have been provided with numerous contradictions and opportunities to do so. Pointing out those contradictions is hardly maligning. If someone is going to spout over and over again "IT'S THE PARENTS AND SOCIETY IT'S THE PARENTS AND SOCIETY IT'S THE PARENTS AND SOCIETY", then they will be ridiculed, pretty much whenever I feel like it. However, that is certainly no cause for taking it to the level he did. I don't think you do, either, but please don't excuse it.
How would you act if I said "You're obviously a liberal because your mom was a whore who slept around with everyone in the neighborhood"?
