Have you considered why that might be?
Yes, but I'd better keep my conclusion to myself.

That's sad, LR, I'm sorry.

Don't be sad, I'm not, that is just the way it was, I got used to it.

Every thread LR posts on, as I've said before, ends up being about her. It's rather tiresome, and in this case arguably insensitive.

Oh for pity's sake, you are so boring. One can only speak from one's own experience of life, I know other people see things differently, which is fine.

Steve you could ignore it. Others do. I dunno what it is about you two (don't want to know).
It looks as though you are picking on LR the way you home in on her posts - and it's water off a duck's back, makes absolutely no difference :-). Pick on someone your own size but I bet you wouldn't.

Poor SteveH must have a very boring existence if he gets his kicks by picking on me. ::)  I couldn't care less what he thinks, as you say it is water off a ducks back, I certainly don't lose any sleep over it.

I'm more concerned about him, metaphorically, 'losing sleep' over you! Very unhealthy to be that bothered by the words of a-someone you don't know in person. It's easy enough to ignore them.

One obviously only can, but most people are capable of a bit of objectivity.

It's quite possible to think yourself into someone else's shoes, even feel something of what they feel, thus understanding a different point of view. It's really good too because it means one will naturally be more objective.

Not everyone can, for a variety of reasons.

That, given the circumstances and context of this story, is a response which indicates that that you have the matter little thought.

I agree with LR on this.

In a sense I don't think the article is about the cards. Sure, they are a hook, and sure, the Graun decided (erroneously IMO) to make it their headline (whoever writes the Graun's headline these days is pretty shit at it). But for me this is more about his journey to acceptance. That, as he says, his part is ending, and it's ok. I find that mind-blowing.
