Your choice of wording here is so catastrophically inappropriate and offensive that you will never have my respect for anything you say or do ever again.

 

When you have opinions as far away from societal norms as you do in some cases, I'd at least hope you are smart enough to not air them publicly. Clearly that's not the case.

My question was answered early in the thread, this is now going way off topic.

Apologies, in hindsight that particular choice of phrase was unfortunate. The analogy was not intentional.

 

I don't think supporting civil liberties and opposing censorship is particularly far from societal norms. I mean heck it's the main reason organisations like the EFF exist.

Not quite zero but close enough.  I score 2 on the EQ-40. My brain simply isn't wired for it.

 

*edit* You can find the EQ-40 here if anyone is interested in taking it: https://www.autismresearchcentre.com/arc_tests
