I appreciate her not giving his name out publicly, but don't appreciate her contacting his employers. Teabagging in video games is always funny. Exhibit A: http://www.screencuisine.net/screencuis ... s-edition/ -- specifically, the final point in the article
I should have listened to Warren. He was right again as usual.

Between the social mores and the economic inequality this Second Victorian Era is pretty dystopian. When do we get the nanotech and Neal Stephenson plotlines?

Teabagging is so old. Are these people going to bring back that "Drops of Jupiter" song, too?

She is literally the only reason I ever intentionally went to Salon.

Peterson comes up as a discussion topic among left-of-center types on another forum...and it's kind of hilarious how scary they find him. "Oh, a guy who doesn't look like a barking lunatic is the scariest and most effect opposition to progressive ideas!"

Man, if that were true, the an-caps would have taken over and, you know, the current fucking president wouldn't be in office. But then, these people were convinced libertarians were their greatest enemies until people kept pointing out to them that Nazis love Trump.

He's an academic so it's hard to tell.

The last thing a certain part of the left wants is to normalize conservative academics, crazy or not.

On the right there are those who have a kind of penis envy for the left's academic intellectuals and just want someone in their corner who sounds like a person with a PhD who isn't a talk radio personality.

he's a critical theorist for people who think critical theorists are frightening. (or, more accurately, what critical theorists sound like to normies)
