The notion that this is somehow less surprising or less important because it happened in South Africa shows both a startling lack of empathy and a lack of awareness of just how much violence LGBT people still face in the US to this day.


No it doesn't. Not feeling surprised does not also mean not feeling empathy. Also, you go on to list things happening in the States that are not as bad as this, so you're not really putting forth any real rebuttal.


Where it occurred is in the first line of the first post. If you can't be bothered to read that far into a topic before wanting to comment on the subject, that's your issue. Not the TC's.

My issue is it's a weaselly way to get people to enter the topic in the first place. That's generally the main objective of misleading topic titles. How obvious it is within the topic where it happened is irrelevant, and something of a red herring since if people didn't quickly realise the location people wouldn't have known the topic title should have made mention of it, anyway, so you're sort of missing the point.

Some people will complain about anything.

Sorry your topic got derailed, TC.
