I saw some pictures of her with her head down, one shoe off, leaving the party. They were painting her as a sloppy drunk. I think I saw it on an "entertainment news" show, which reeeeally pisses me off.

Nohope, I dont see the comparison the way you do. In each case it seemed to me like the general public has the attitude of, "shes a liar trying to cash in". I think the issue here that gets under our skin is that when rape cases are made public with the undercurrent of "is she telling the truth?" it really makes it hard for other rape victims to come forward. Is it possible that a woman/girl could lie about rape? Sure, but its a rare exception not the norm. When the media sensationalizes a story like this, it gets into our female subconcious that if we are raped, its just too much extra trauma to go through a trial.

I think that the woman mentioned in Snaf's argument is a repellant human being who is sorely deserving of a serious ass-whoopin'.

Sadly, I also think that she's probably right.

The problem with the 1st Amendment is that it requires that on occassion one must put up with the most outragageous of idiots. She has a fundamental right to be an intolerant asshat. She has a right to send a nasty letter to the Pride Alliance.

She hasn't been accused of stalking its members, or threatening them, or inciting others to do so. She's being an intolerant and hateful brat. I think she has a right to do so. This woman does own her hate. Her particular "sect" seems to own it, too.

When I used to do clinic escorting, the other escorts and I certainly ridiculed the protestors. They were absurd, not to mention judgemental and stupid. That said, though, I had to recognize their fundamental right to be there and wave their stupid signs. Threaten me? No. Touch me? No. Threaten patients? No. Act like a twit? Sadly, yes.

I think it should be noted that I find a big difference between her right to write stupid letters and wear stupid shirts and the Boy Scouts' refusal to allow gay members. Namely, the Boy Scouts are subsidized by government in ways large and small, and they have in their rules a fundamentally intolerant and exclusionary rule. Why should my tax dollars support that stupid shit? It shouldn't.

I also don't think that universities should be forced to give recognition in the form of money to groups that promote intolerance. One fool's speech and the money he or she chooses to spend on it is one thing, but I don't think other students should be required to subsidize it.
