    Both sides of the imaginary binary… People are so pattern crazy… it’s Green Eggs and Ham all over again. Great video – says truth succinctly. Thanks.

    I love what Chris is saying, but quite honestly I’m really annoyed with Chris in general. Chris is usually very sexist and a horrible example of the queer community. With all due respect, of course.

    I agree. Looking at his other videos (especially the one where he rags on people who don’t want to define their orientation) makes me really doubt that he “knows what it’s all about.”

    I guess I wasn’t approaching the video very critically, or considering the effect on a wide range of different people in different circumstances. There is a difference between making a statement about something and communicating an in-depth considered opinion.

    The statement can be clear and concise. It can provoke thought and discussion because it says what it means, or it can do the same by sowing dissent (see S. Colbert). I know that sometimes when I feel strongly about something and say something about it, I’m a bit “out there” and my real deep feelings, once I have had time to think about things in more depth, don’t exactly coincide.
