Strong words

Seems like Anthony Miccio's piece on Wait has stirred some people up. For what it's worth, my personal reaction to the song is closest to jshepard's out of all the people I've read so far, although our reactions aren't identical (which may or may not have anything to do with my genitals, I'll leave it up to others more conversant with what I'm allowed to feel due to my gender to decide). But I don't think Anthony's points both in the original and in response are invalid. So where the fuck does that leave me (aside from in the middle of Wishy Washy Land)?

Also, let's please not forget an important fact takes on the song shouldn't neglect: It's fucking boring, whether or not it's offensive.
