In the News "Peers and scientists including Professor Stephen Hawking are once again pushing for an official pardon for codebreaker Alan Turing. Turing's death from cyanide poisoning in 1954 was ruled a suicide, coming after his conviction for gross indecency at a time when homosexuality was illegal." The fact that he still hasn't been pardoned is an utter disgrace.

In that case why bother with women's rights at all? At the time of the woman's suffrage movement, they didn't argue for equal rights for blacks, or LGBT.

How selfish of women to fight for their rights and no one else's? Merely by not mentioning other oppressed groups to your satisfaction obviously meant they were all against black rights.

Fuck, we should roll back the clock and remove women's and black's rights until we get rights for everybody all at once.

No one should get rights and it will be a better story to fail than to get any sort of small victories!

Right, because that's what I said.

Please tell me again how blacks and women championed their rights by arguing that a single famous person, and only that person, should be given rights as a first step.
Yeah, didn't happen like that.

You don't get to complain about people twisting your words, when you just did it with my factually correct statement.

So you're saying the Rosa Parks trial was a class action lawsuit?
