    I'm going to be the idiot and ask, is he insinuating that he would drown his kids if they were gay?

    Even the reporter didn't get an answer. I'm inclined to think your way.

    As a last word .... Redneck does have ignorant connotations. Some people do embrace the term, and they tend to be the most ignorant. Some people reject the term and prefer good ole boy or something similar. These are slightly more enlightened people. They're usually just more country folk with a softer, less racist edge.
    I will say there is starting to be more of an influx of and even among people from here more liberal ideas. The fact that we even had a women's march in this town the day after the orange one's inauguration is something that would not have happened 20 or even 15 years ago.

    Either that, or make them join the KKK, since they are the same thing, right? Hey, there was "Black Klansman," so why not "Gay Klansman?" There could be a whole series based on that....

    Yes to the blindness. Can't really speak to any possibly violations of nature's order he might be responsible for.

    I was thinking along the same lines yesterday....Northam should push to bring down the Confederate Statues, particularly those Richmond and Charlottesville. He could put the R's in Va in a bin as well and force them to publicly oppose him on that.

    “Additionally, a source close to the governor said Northam is telling people privately that if the commonwealth’s legislature puts a bill on his desk that provides the authority to bring down Confederate statues that he would sign it.”

    Some developments in the Fairfax case.

    1. The 2nd woman said she also was raped by a Duke basketball player in 1999. Anyone from around here had the exact same thought. "I bet it was Corey Maggette." And we were right.
    2. Which means the 2nd woman had the misfortune of being raped twice in college, both times by black men who later became famous. I'm not saying that's impossible, but obviously that's one hell of a coincidence. Her story is listing into Duke lacrosse case territory. But we shall see.

    The first accusation strikes me as being sort of in the Aziz Ansari spectrum of things. In terms of a criminal case, without knowing anything about the credibility and character of the two individuals, you wonder if it's sexual assault, or two young people who really sucked at sexual communication. I don't think alcohol was involved, but if so, that would make it more likely.

    In terms of the politics, obviously it's much worse. The report that in a meeting about how to deal with the first accusation Fairfax said "F*** that bitch" indicates a pretty awful attitude towards women.

    Without expressing any opinion of whether Fairfax is innocent or not, considering that his political and legal careers could be ended by these accusations, "f that bitch" doesn't strike me as over the top.

    F that b speaks to how he thinks about women, specifically. He could have just as easily said f her, which would be understandable, and at the same time not slurring her. Like if a white dude said f that n instead of f that a-hole or f him.

    His people have obviously denied that, but if true, that is a pretty awful way to talk about women.

    Yeah, I googled him yesterday during the main part of the convo. He was an NFL player for four or five seasons, tho, so it wasn't all for naught.

    I see your point, but I think you are reading too much into it. If we are trying to figure out whether he really raped this woman, I don't think his word choice in a meeting 15 years later tells us much. (And I thought the "C word" was the one we really need to avoid!)
