I wrote this piece about the Sydney Mardi Gras, and specifically about the festival that Sydney tried to run before the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. I had a screenshot from the Women's Weekly of December 1977, showing the timetabling for January 1978, and talked about what an incredible flop the whole thing was. The piece was mainly for a Facebook group called "Lost Gay Sydney", who were asking about memories of Mardi Gras, and most people seemed to like it.

Except one.

Please refer here to the screenshot that had me head-desking.

OMG. Why bother reading for actual content when you can jump to conclusions and make up your own facts?

(This is the mindset that elected an orange fountain of lies as the US president.)

Oh, my. People are stupid. The older I get, the more convinced I am of that fact.

It made me recall Rebecca Solnit's Men explaining things to me. In which an arrogant man explain to her the meaning of her own novel, not listening to people when the point to him she was the author. In the end, the man confesses only having read a review of her novel.

Wow. Those are the people I really dislike - the commenters without reading what they are commenting on
