Brandon Campeaux - Public reply to Katheryn Clark : http://r.sy.am/suy15C "The problem with Katheryn’s “you’re bullying me” spiel is it’s not unique. It happens all too often when someone sees a post on the internet not directed at them but of which’s contents they don’t agree with. It’s an attempt to make me feel like I’ve done something wrong and that I’m to blame for stating plainly, “I’m an atheist” or “I’m bisexual”… or posting something that calls out racism, bigotry, etc. Somehow my generalized public posts coupled with Katheryn’s choice to follow me is somehow bullying. Make no mistake, Katheryn has always had the opportunity to uncircle me or block me to make sure she never saw any of my posts again." ... "So you wonder why I’m always calling out religious bigotry and racism. It’s because I lived through the violence; and I think it’s absolutely wrong for any kid or adult to have to endure the same dehumanizing brutality I did. I will never stop calling what I know to be wrong. As for this idea that I’m giving hate a platform by acknowledging and condemning it. Do you think if we just ignored slavery it would resolve itself? Do you think the civil rights movement would come about itself if we didn’t call out and condemn racism when we saw it? What you’re suggesting is very dangerous and I’d hate to think you apply the same logic at your profession. Can you imagine the look produced by your legal team during a deposition of this fictitious example when you say, “I solved the problem by ignoring Sam’s unwelcome sexual advances towards Jane.”!? Be real. Drop this act."
