I have a few not-typical-liberal things about me. I try really hard to bite my tongue when I hear people making the worst assumptions about my and my family. Some of my family are crazy conservative, and I try not to set them off either. Last night my super-liberal mother-in-law got in a fight with my dad about the relative decency of Obama personally, after which she told me that really women should just expect that some men can't stop themselves from being rapists because it's their nature. And then I hopped online to escape and immediately saw some shit in a thread that made me stabby.

I just wanted to buck up anyone else who is biting their tongue so hard it's bleeding today. You are awesome, and whoever is talking to you is an unrepentant asshole. Fuck that guy!
