Re: Masculinity, so fragile

It’s meaningless to talk about something being important without attaching the idea of a will imbueing that characteristic. You can call that feature pretending if you want but you probably can’t reasonably get snarky about it if you want to assert that “importance” can mean anything at all.

The choice not to experience is lesser and more constraining than the choice to experience.

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

The sense of alternatives through media is mediated through someone’s narrative and laughably thin. Media at its best is a place for ideas but it barely scratches experience. I know what New York is like I watched Sex and the City. Gay people are cool like on Queer Eye.

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

There’s an informed set of preferences an an uninformed set of preferences. Having a preference without ever having tried anything else is to me almost by definition an unsettled state. But, too, I’m fine with that set of preferences so long as we don’t spend a lot of calories trying to understand a...

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

I don’t know that it is particularly useful or even insightful to categorize the whole of experience as a trick of psychology. Of course it is. But since everything is it doesn’t matter - this is the world of experience we have. You have to define the vision of the good you seek, then proceed as tho...

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

You are missing-middling the claim, which is that there are nontrivial but non infinite numbers of people invested in the idea that it’s all circumstance and luck (FFF has said this to me and much of the liberal project is premised in it), that restraint on current desires is suffering . . . If I s...

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

Those modern process-denying shortcut-taking libertines really need to knock it off with the strawmen. A certain type of libertine was the line. Those people should take directed effort more seriously, which is to say at a value greater than full mockery every time it comes up. But yes. Why though?...

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

That is a good quote to illustrate my overall experience of the guy in relation to my worldview. See, to me, the idea of "having a point" isn't a great question. I don't know that anything has ever had a point in the way people seem to throw that phrase around, but I think that's an indictment of th...

Re: Ragequits

Drums was super hard tho.

My most epic rage quits were probably tabletop Warhammer 40k type things. I hate it so much when you set everything up right, timing, cover, spacing - then roll nothing but 1s on 50 shots attempted.

We Work will no longer allow you to expense any meals containing red meat, poultry, or pork. I first heard this story as a thing about their cafeteria, but it actually extends apparently to their expense policies, which takes a whtevs and turns it into OFFS. https://www.foodandwine.com/news/wework-m...

You are super weird about this t. He IS a troll. He may be other things but he in his bones at least a troll. The straightest line here by far is trolling, and you acting like that requires some extra burden is goofy.
