I read something a while back that said something along the lines of, "I don't say these things in the hope of convincing those who disagree; I say these things to let those who already agree know that they're not alone."
I didn't spend the whole day in this thread for veti and Scow2 and Foikroder. I spent the whole day here for Amphiox and DaggerPen and Math_Mage, and perhaps more importantly, all the lurkers who read these words and aren't posting here. Everyone else who understands my point, but lives in a world that tells them that they're wrong, that sometimes you don't have a choice, that it's right and natural to fear and kill the Other. To those people, I say, **** THAT NOISE. We can do better. And the D&D table is as good a place to start as any.
