On culture

I am greatly annoyed when people present themselves as being a member of a particular culture as an attempt to dodge responsibility for their actions, delegating that responsibility to those who set the norms for that culture. The obvious case being: “God Hates Fags, the bible tells me so”.

The only decent reason to state one’s culture is to identify the context for one’s speech, to improve communication.
