Just Us League of Blogdom « A Post From the Lost Archives »

Nearly two years ago, I noticed that part of my blogging clique included three of us whose names could be superheros:
The Accidental Jedi
and me: Brainfertilizer

So I figured it was a pretty good blog meme and wrote it out, complete with bad puns and possibly the worst exmaples of humor possible. I even worked Glenn Reynolds into it to see if I could get an Insta-lanche. No luck. Then again, I never emailed it to him. [shrug]

Deb found 'em on the Wayback Machine, and so you get the benefit of her efforts. Or the punishment...

Here's the link. The text is below the fold. Enjoy it again...for the first time!

Has anyone ever avoided a sexual harassment charge by claiming to be gay? As in, "I don't know how she got the impression I was referring to her body, because I'm gay and don't care how she looks!"

Then again, since homosexuals can suddenly discover they have been gay all their life, could becoming gay after the harassment took place but before the investigation be a defense? As in, "It may have seemed like sexual harassment at the time, but now that I realize I'm gay and always have been, prosecution for that would not only be redundant, but a hate crime in and of itself by a heterosexual slandering a homosexual."

Ah, the interesting things that happen when you start chaining ideological pronouncements together.

Other thoughts:

How many sexual harassment charges have been made by women against women? How about by men against men?
