Re: Masculinity, so fragile

The same friend asked L-dub to co-watch some lecture of his via Skype several weeks back. He was like eh it was okay but also pretty ahistorical.

Oh man, one of L-dub's best college friends gave him a discount code for Jordan Peterson's "self-authoring" program.

Re: Worthwhile intertubez finds

BTW, are the neo-reactionary guys genuinely interested in German Romanticism, or is another ironic pose? At a certain point the only good reaction is yelling "NERRRRRRRRDS!" Maybe they look at the nazis and find a year zero refreshment to things but by white people. I could certainly see some guard...

Onions?
Usually we have boiled and creamed. I think it's semi a regional New England thing. But I didn't actually grow up eating it.

Re: Thanksgiving: the most delicious time of the year

We’re going to MA to stay with L-dub’s dad’s fam, none of whom I’ve ever met, so I really have no idea what we’re eating or if I’ll be expected to help (ugh). The Thanksgiving stuff I care about is super traditional, stuffing and mashed and gravy. And turkey and cran. And onions. I know the onions a...

Elizabeth Bruenig is a socialist and very Catholic, possibly with Tridentine sympathies, but she seems like a very nice person. The reason she deletes her tweets is due to electronic PTSD from when her husband (Matt Bruenig, who is a cunty millennial leftist) got fired from Demos, a moderately (?) ...

@Nicole: I guess I don't know. You may be right. What was the form of the bullying? If it wasn't physical abuse or ongoing verbal harassment, I'd say no.
