Hey Joe! Thanks. Always happy to throw a little shade on someone so thoroughly unwilling and/or unable to engage in self-examination before yelling into the void.

But I’ll bite. How would you like me to respond to your ‘essay’?

A carefully constructed parody, “Joe Garza & the Vacuous Activism of His “Critical Essay” (‘When hatred of gay women is more important than any degree of introspection.’)? I can do that. It’ll take me an hour to work up.

A point by point deconstruction of ALL your logical fallacies and presuppostitions? Yeah I can do that too. It’ll take even less time than the parody.

Or I could lazily throw a bunch of ad hominem insults your way, along with a list of the right-wing, reactionary MRA buzzwords you yourself lapse into. All. Too. Often.

I could do any, indeed all, of those. Who knows, I may make some good points. I might even make some folks laugh. But seriously, should I waste any more of my time than I already am?

I called you uneducable, admittedly as a barb, but I did so on the basis of the words you volunteered to the world. Feel free to prove me wrong.

Please re-read what you wrote and see if you can spot, without my condescension, where your piece is problematic.

Capricious by name, steadfast by nature. Trans femme dyke. Smutsmith. Provocateur. Poet. Idiot. Kicking names and taking ass.
