    What I don’t understand is, why do people even care so much about what other people have chosen for their diets? You don’t actually need gluten to have a healthy diet, so if someone wants to do without it, so what? I think it’s fair enough to point out that gluten sensitivity may not be a thing, but if the person wants to be gluten-free anyway,…[Read more]

    • Why should we be okay with psuedoscience? It’s the same mentality that promotes anti-vaxx rhetoric and belief. To allow one form of psuedoscience because it’s “not a big deal” (says whom? and why?) is not okay. It just helps promote yet more anti-intellectualism and lazy thinking.

      Accurate science is necessary, not optional.

    Perhaps but one of the things he says is that he feels he was part of the “least privileged class in society.” To me, that doesn’t seem at all to acknowledge that others might have it worse, despite his own suffering.

    I have to step in and defend Metacritic, since I’m pretty close with the people who created it. The intent of the site is specifically not to say what things are good based on popular opinion. It is a tool that gathers the professional reviews of a piece of entertainment (games, music, movies) into one place so that people can access the range of…[Read more]

    Yeah, it’s always annoying when people assert their right to be treated as equal human beings. I totally agree with that guy. I am sure that white supremacists were super annoyed by the civil rights movement, and the Christian right is extremely annoyed by marriage equality as well. I mean, someone wanting to change a status quo that’s…[Read more]

    Not to mention it is a total straw man. When did anyone ever say that if you say one kind of harm is worse than another kind of harm that you are actually endorsing the less bad kind of harm? I’ve never heard anyone make that argument in my life.

    Not to mention how much I despise people who insist on being all “beep boop logic” when dealing with emotional topics, as if people who have normal human responses to things in life are somehow doing something wrong.

    • He’s saying deliberately inflammatory things, and then acting as if an angry response is somehow proof of his own superiority.
      It looks like a bad attempt at some kind of *gotcha*!

    Ugh those tweets were total bait. People make legit responses questioning his premise that X is worse than Y and now he gets to smugly reply “But the underlying LOGIC is sound because X and Y don’t matter. These internet feminazis are so EMOTIONAL amirite?” If it was only about the logic and X and T don’t matter, then he could have stopped with X…[Read more]

    “So how is it reasonable that an individual who chooses to incorporate in today’s business environment should also be required to give up their personal convictions–no matter how twisted they are?”

    Because the whole point of the corporation is to be a shield between the individual and their business actions. The corporation shields the cor…[Read more]

  • Anyone who thinks women traditionally only did the physically undemanding work should try washing clothes by hand the way a washerwoman would. That is NO JOKE. You have to be strong as an ox to do that kind of […]
