Re: If We Build It, They'll Probably Still Come

Look, if you had listened to libertarians, you would have known this guy's first two pet issues marked him as an authoritarian fuckstick. John Palmer, a former university professor, has always had a cause. For decades he urged Minnesota officials to face the dangers of drunken driving and embrace se...

My favorite part is that she says it’s “coopting” the language of the oppressor, as if that would be a bad thing if it were possible.

Re: Intellectualism: Dark and Webbed

who thinks women are more at risk for heart disease? To be fair, some of the articles he links to try to imply that, or at least try to imply that women with heart disease receive worse care. I know that when my mother worked in the ER she talked a lot about how women present with different heart a...

Re: Intellectualism: Dark and Webbed

This Quillette article is pretty data-rich and technical, which means it's hard for a non-expert to judge its reliability. That bothers me. https://quillette.com/2019/06/12/the-real-gender-gap-in-heart-disease/ I saw the lede for that yesterday and I was just like...who thinks women are more at ris...

Re: Intellectualism: Dark and Webbed

The CJR criticism acts like the point of the Quillette story was the quantitative data, which it wasn't. The Quillette story explicitly says that it doesn't mean anything that a journalist is connected to antifa on social media. He's merely using that list as a list of journalists who likely cover(e...

The margins of how you set the first thing make it indistinguishable from the second thing. I want to be able to say “sorry that’s just wrong” in cases like this, which is kind of how that article scanned, and I want to say “fuck you thats absurd” in many many other cases.

Huh. Quillette editor Andy Ngo co-wrote a piece in "Spectator" in January of this year: "Black lives matter, until they’re ended by black people." Basically, rather than complain about cops killing black Americans and getting away with it, y'all should complain about black criminals who kill black ...

The attitude expressed by Beauvoir here is now embedded not only in radical feminism, but in mainstream culture and media. A visit to Wikipedia will tell you that the missionary position is a ...
