dita - aviators
Sis, I'm really NOT trying to start wank - I am, however, trying to state my opinions and experiences in a clear, sympathetic way and without making broad, unsupported generalizations. The fact that what I posted wasn't something you liked or wanted to hear about doesn't make it automatically wanky.

My experiences and the conclusions I've drawn based on those experiences are valid. I'm sorry you feel hurt by my expressing them, but I have every right to, and tbh I think it really says more about you than me that you're reacting in this way, first by accusing me of flat-out lying/buying into random Hollywood generalizations (debatable btw, even the "dirty cop" movies come stocked full of principled heroes) with no basis on reality, and now by accusing me of deliberately seeking to personally insult all cops and their families.
