Re: Masculinity, so fragile

It's a rule based on correctly judging others subjective preferences. It's bad. A better rule is 'Ask before you sit close to somebody you don't know' because it teaches you to solve the problem instead of guessing, and doesn't promote a world where we ask consent for every social interaction.

Not "close too [sic]", "too close".
I get that, I made a typo which I've fixed. My point is not based on misunderstanding the words though. What is too close?

Re: Pick Your Poisson

Ok, so who should pay and how do we meter the costs? Right now the piper calls the tune and companies extract money for services at bottlenecks, just like any other industry. If they can't get paid to transfer ownership because DRM can't keep up, they will charge for what they *can* control, which i...

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

This is a culture issue, not a universal moral constant. Why shouldn't I sit close to a friend?

No licking is a much more reasonable rule. No grabbing is fine. But drawing the line at 'touching' is a problem.

Re: No touching! - sexual impropriety thread

This is all well and good, but what about women who are groped by un-famous people? If any of these ladies had tweeted about some rando, nobody would care and the rando is likely unaffected. "Oh no Al Franken is a rapist" is just...not really important to anyone not in the story. I know the narrativ...

Re: Observations of the Random sort

"pwn" and "pwnt" comes from PC online multi-player comp, where you would want to let someone know that you 'own' or 'owned' them. But 'p' and 'o' are so close on the keyboard that you'd often hit the other by mistake when you are flaming someone in chat at full speed, so it was common to see both. U...
