UsernameOpti... : (12 July 2014 - 08:22 PM) Why does the media continue to mistakenly identify anti-TGBL haters as, "pundits?"  Doesn't calling a blithering bigot a "pundit," qualify as oxymoronic?

A thick skin is good I guess sometimes...but not everyone has that thick skin.  And really, when it comes to identity, one shouldn't have to have a thick skin to fend against the crap that people sling one's way.

This would be a cold world if we all developed a thick skin... for reason, or just in case.
