Be careful about throwing "you" around like that, Panteleone."You don't allow racism, sexism, or homophobia. You also don't allow right-sided talking points."I don't lead a guild, so I'm not in position to disallow anything. None of my characters are even in a guild at all, for that matter."You don't say it, but you clearly and plainly equate racism, sexism, and homophobia with the talking points of the right."I think you mean that the person being interviewed did."You claim no relationship between these items aside from exclusion, but what you conveniently avoid mentioning is *why* they are excluded."Again, I'm not dkosmama. She did, however, mention why they're excluded - they find racism, sexism, and homophobia morally objectionable, and conservative talking points cause drama. Perhaps she does equate them, but that's a guess on the reader's part.She might equate them, she might not - it cannot be determined whether or not she does through the words she used. Intellectual honesty is about admitting the difference between what she said and what you think she might have said. If someone can't read the article without adding insertions of their own, then they're not being intellectually honest.
