    I very much do not like the “hypocrisy!” argument.

    Here is proposition P.

    Now, either proposition P is a good proposition or it is a bad proposition. Perhaps it is a mixed bag. Perhaps it will have unintended consequences. Perhaps it is a pie-in-the-sky fantasy.

    All of those things strike me as having a lot more merit in a discussion than starting with the background of the person making Proposition P.

    It leads to people explaining no, you think my background is *THIS* but it’s really *THAT*, so I have every right to argue for Proposition P!

    Proposition P strikes me as much more interesting than the childhood of “Person saying ‘Proposition P'”.Report

    Here’s my favorite bit from the Concerned Women for America release:

    “Mission America President Linda Harvey doubts that Klein High School’s new GSA will be able to abide by state law.

    ‘Homosexual clubs are always and foremost about sex. So any ‘gay’ club in Texas or any other state with a law prohibiting sexual activity of minors, is an offense to that law,’ she told Culture & Family Report.”

    I dare them to sound more clueless.Report
