Dear everyone ever:

It's really, REALLY fucking rude to interrupt me by making inarticulate noises. I don't care who you are or what we're talking about, it's totally fucking rude, particularly when one is trying to have a serious discussion. It's one thing if you're joking around and being silly, it's another if it's a serious conversation.

Also really fucking rude? Sticking your fingers in your ears and going "LA LA LA". How about I do either of these things next time you're talking about something I don't feel like hearing about and we'll see how you feel?

Another important thing to know: WORDS HAVE SPECIFIC MEANINGS. You used Phrase A. Phrase A has Specific Meaning A, but you say that when YOU use Phrase A it should be understood as Specific Meaning B. Guess what? Specific Meaning B has a phrase for it - Phrase B. If you use Phrase A, but mean Specific Meaning B, THEN YOU ARE USING THE WRONG WORD. Full stop.

Yeah, language evolves and all that jazz, but this is NOT a case of that. Phrase A has Specific Meaning A, and Phrase B has Specific Meaning B and ne'er the twain shall meet. Really. Not ever.

EDIT: Also, abortion? Is a humans rights issue, not a religious one.
