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...

My new fridge has the wrap. Also not French doored. Side by side counter depth. Not awesome.
When you say new fridge do you mean fridge already present in new house or you just picked that out?

Why do some people think it’s attractive / a good idea to pay extra money to wrap your appliances in a veneer so they look like your cabinets? That is some ugly looking shit and it isn’t cheap.

I'm more or less Cowenian on growth.

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. I agree with the Kay arti...

Re: Intellectualism: Dark and Webbed

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 ...

Re: Intellectualism: Dark and Webbed

An actual reason Quillette isn't that great: Just close your eyes and think of England, as the saying goes. 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 ...

I just find it frustrating that the zoning stuff gets mixed in with the housing subsidy stuff. Snob zoning is a thing that works, so they are connected?

Re: Inequality

On further thought, I believe a problem is that we don't really have a concept for what a truly mixed income community would look like. It's so baked into our cultural assumptions that the rich and poor will naturally separate into different living spaces, and that that is indeed part of the whole ...
