I mean, at least I knew immediately that he was a racist?

Least he knew immediately you’re a prejudiced uppity bitch too

lmao when people try to do the whole “you’re prejudiced for not approving of MY prejudice!!!”

Well considering the flag doesn’t symbolize slavery or racism then she is being very prejudiced

Ok. Lets lay out my credits.
1. Born in Alexandria Virginia (home of Lee) 
2. My -MIDDLE NAME IS LEE-
3. I know which part of my family fought (24th regiment of Virginia)
4. Father is a Civil War Historian.
5. Graduated Summa Cum Laude from a college in -TEXAS- with a degree in history that focused on Civil War and Reconstruction (and early western empire)
The stars and Bars has been used a lot throughout the army and at one point in time was used as part of the -ACTUAL FLAG- of the confederate states of America.This is important,  because when the first deep south states seceded from the Union (that would be South Carolina because their beloved  Calhoun was the father of the nullification theory which was the foundation for the secession movement), they sent out delegates to other southern state congresses to influence them into seceding with them and the one thing that NEVER was not part of their secession letters and speeches (of which I have read and there’s an excellent book about it with primary documents-that means documents FROM a direct source not read out that book would be here) was how they were trying to take away their slaves and how they couldn’t let white supremacy go and that they were gonna rape white women and ‘OH MY GOD THE BLACKS MIGHT WANNA BE EQUAL’
So you can keep on being disingenuous and pretend that the civil war wasn’t -DIRECTLY- about racism and slavery but you’d be fucking wrong and should be ashamed of your southern ass. Because that’s a lie. It’s a bald faced -LIE-. They actually used the words ‘WHITE SUPREMACY’. 
SO That flag actually DOES symbolize slavery and racism because that was -what- they were fighting for.
Also btw there are some lovely books that uses primary documentation from the fucking soldiers themselves about what they were fighting for and GUESS WHAT A BUNCH OF THEM SAID.  One of those books is -here.
NOTHING irritates me more than this willful ignorance over why it is the south fought. For the love of fuck people.

Again, if you learn “history” from the institution of education created by the union, you don’t get the real story. Learn your history, it wasn’t, nor is it, representative of slavery or racism.

Dude I was educated exclusively in the south and QUOTED PRIMARY SOURCES that means that the ACTUAL people who were there wrote their views down and we can READ THEM
You are running straight towards “absolutely clueless” territory. Even Jefferson Davis the PRESIDENT of the confederacy cited white supremacy until his imprisonment after the treaty
Girl I’ve held actual motherfucking hand written documents stating that they were fighting for slaves and white power. Fool, educated yourself.

Who you calling girl?!?
And you are aware of how EASY forging a document and saying it was written by a soldier is right? Especially if you claim it was a soldier who died.

LOLOL you are fucking ridiculous. 
You wanna play ‘conspiracy’ with me like I wasn’t raised more southern than thou? 
FORGING!? SERIOUSLY!? I worked in archives moron. I actually used more than -one- primary document and some of those were from actual STATE delegates but ohhh of course, those are all forged because it’s not absolutely possible that a 4 BILLION dollar industry that was the basis of Southern culture and class strata wouldn’t be the cause of a war.
Look at how much you have to contort and fucking -deny facts- because it doesn’t suit the narrative you want to have be the truth. 
'Can't be those fucking thousands of documents that are just -everywhere- from you know congressional records, to state delegates to the President of the Confederacy to General Lee's letter's to solider's letters (thousands of them) to fucking NEWSPAPER records (of which I've seen primary as well)…NOOOooooo Can't even be those because I don't want to recognize what the actual truth of it is'
My grandmother called it the war of northern aggression, my middle name was supposed to be Leigh but my dad got to the registrar before my mom was awake, I’ve been to the Front Royal civil war Monument and traced the names of my family that died in Gettysburg on it (in Pickett’s Charge no less), I grew up walking the fields of Chancellorsville and Fredericksburg and Bull Run (Manassas battle 1 &2) my father took me on field trips to Gettysburg and Shiloh
You are a fucking idiot and you don’t know a damn thing you’re talking about.

“Frankly put. I am a FAKE GEEK GUY. I admit it. I like geek stuff, but I don’t love geek stuff. Not the way most geeks do. I’m an interloper on the geek scene. I’ve seen the movies, but I don’t know the canon. I am not a true fan.

All those things about not really loving the source material and “just watching the movies” or only reading the one book that everyone has read. That—all of that—applies to me.

But here are some things that have never happened to me. I have never been quizzed about who Data’s evil brother is to prove I like Star Trek. I have never had to justify my place in a midnight line to see Spider-man II by knowing who took up the mantle of Spider-man after Peter Parker’s death. (Peter Parker dies? Really? That’s so sad!) I have never had to explain who Nightwing is in order to participate in a conversation about Batman. (Nightwing is like….Robin on steroids, right?) I have never been asked how battle meditation works in order to voice my opinion that Enterprise shields would probably make a fight with Star Wars technology one sided. (Battle meditation is something that was in that Jedi role playing game, wasn’t it?) I have never had to beat everybody in the room (twice) at Mario Kart to prove I liked video games. I have never had my gender “honorarily” changed by having enough geek interests to be accepted (“you’re one of the guys now”). No one has ever insisted I tell them the difference between a tank and DPS in an MMORPG before allowing me to discuss raiding Molten Core. I have never been dismissed as a faker at a prequel screening because I didn’t know which admiral came out of light speed too close to the planet’s surface in The Empire Strikes Back. I have never been quizzed about Armor Class in order to get past someone who was blocking my path to the back of a game store where my friends were waiting at the tables. I have never been told I’m not a real fan. I have never been shamed for coming to a convention despite my lack of esoteric knowledge. And I have never, ever, EVER been invited to leave a fandom because I didn’t like [whatever it was] enough.

Every one of the things I have listed, I have personally witnessed happen. To women.

That’s not elitism. That’s sexism.”
