I suggest you stop making assumptions on things that aren't specifically stated and applying your own bias to them based on the opinion you've formed of me. I'll be happy to clarify, but you need to be willing to listen.

It's not a matter of assumptions when it's a bald read on what you are saying. And I shouldn't need to ask you to clarify every single thing you say, if what you are saying isn't what you mean, you should try focusing on actually saying what it is you do mean.

Black and White is the only concept your simple mind seems to be able to comprehend.

Ah, well, I'm glad that you've gone the insults route. Because otherwise I might have been tempted to take you seriously.

...strawman...

...that word -- I do not think it means what you think it means. Either that or you're twisting my words again just so you can use it. Are you going to find a way to fit "white knight" into the thread too? Don't stop at just one trendy Blue's News term...

If it means that you are creating a misrepresentation of my position in an attempt to counter my point(s), then I do know what it means. And look, that is what it means. Perhaps in your rush to try and appear clever, you forgot to actually make sure that you aren't wrong.

I know. Those are my words. That's my opinion on how effective demonstration is.

Of course those are your words. But in an argument, you use your words to counter the position of the other person. If you are using your words to counter a position the other person hasn't advanced, then you are being rather ineffective - at best - in the argument.

Are you seriously taking something out of second-hand context to imply that I'm against GaymerCon even though every other post where I've metioned it I've been for it?

No, I'm stating that your position is inconsistent. When your early introduction into a discussion is agreeing with the resident homophobe's assertion that this group's attempt at creating a LGBT-friendly event is a dumb idea, your later assertions that you don't have a problem with it are likely to be met with skepticism.

Bhruic, you are a fucking idiot and all you want to do is create a reason to argue. It's obvious you and I disagree on a lot of points -- why not leave it at that?

And here I'd already typed up a nice response before I got to this part. Taking you seriously indeed...

Leaving aside your childish insults, it is rather amusing that we disagree on lots of points, but I'm somehow "creating" a reason to argue. A sensible person would realize that disagreeing on lots of points is a reason to argue.
