    Donald Trump follows his passions: Golf, Ivanka, and punishing people for not being him.

    Thanks for doing some coverage on this.
    Deadspin has been doing a bunch of stuff on this and similar topics in the last year, and it’s really interesting reading about how racist this shit is, and how precisely targetted it can become (only specific events have the rules, and not necessarily the ones that their own studies suggest testosterone…[Read more]

    I’ve always enjoyed banana flavoring, but that’s because I’m messed in the head.

    On the chumbox thing: this specific scenario reminds me a bit of surfing for porn in the ancient days of the modern internet (so after searching around for file directories with pictures that would then take 2 minutes to load on my screen). You’d have places that…[Read more]

    Hey MRAs, one thing that Rebecca didn’t mention is that men have a higher rate of completed suicides because men use guns way more than women! So if you want to save men, work on gun control, it’ll save men’s lives!

    And then fuck outta here with most of the rest of your shit.

    Can we discuss how this doubly hurts black women? To the point where SERENA FUCKING WILLIAMS almost died in childbirth because her doctors didn’t believe her about her own body?
    To the point where black mothers have a tragic mortality rate during childbirth, and there was that study that black people are given fewer painkillers by EMTs

    • In fact, in the 19th century, there was a whole “they don’t feel pain” meme as part of the larger “racial differences in brains” memeplex. Yeah, it’s fucking horrible, so of course the 19th century had it.

    Could you do a similar takedown of the MA quack ass that’s using “shock therapy” on kids with disabilities, because he saw a movie once?

    This is all fair, except she does at one point come out and say “I really must go, the answer is no”, and ignoring that is a very problematic message when we have consent issues.

    Your quick dismissal of the concern of folks with disabilities doesn’t hold up. If you ban automatically giving tap water, the place doesn’t stop stocking tap water. If you ban straws, why are places going to have straws? Nobody will make them anymore since there will be no market, and nobody will bother getting them for the customers who might…[Read more]

    Loot boxes are pretty clearly designed to get people to pay more money. It’s the intermittent reinforcement method.

    These same people think it’s more likely that all the accusations against Sandusky are made for money than that there is any truth to them.
    Some skeptics are awfully unskeptical.

    Tangent: occasionally well known sci if authors will have a character go off on a quick screed about some moral issue.
    In 3001: A space Odyssey, the main character hooks up with a woman, and she goes off on how they can’t actually have sex because he is mutilated.
    Always amused me, and less offensive than the random gay guy talking about how…[Read more]

    I’ve known that about depression and walking for most of my adult life. It’s still really hard to get out and walk.

    This seems plausible. The war over raising children is endless, and LOTS of people think children are property, even if they don’t all phrase it that way.

    Kudos to Krawitt.

    Can I remind people that we had a very similar problem with the Boston Marathon, but with ableism on top of sexism? There were a lot of people talking about Meb Keflezighi being the first American to win since 1983, when a woman won the woman’s marathon in 1985…. and the women’s wheelchair winner was from America from 2012-2014, plus Jean…[Read more]

    I loved her piece. Lindy is a treasure.

    Dan: I have always found Ira Glass’ voice incredibly grating, and this might be part of why. I wonder if that’s also the problem I have with Garrison Keillor’s tales from Lake Wobegon (I can listen to him as characters all day, but Tales from Lake Wobegon make me physically uncomfortable when I listen.)

    Dangit! Now I’ll have to check the main site more often…

    Since the redesign I’ve been sticking to the network sites more (inability to quickly see recent comments on the front page is a big part of this, combined with my own confusion of featured vs recent posts).

    Glad to hear you’re in high demand. You’ll really be rolling in that…[Read more]

    • I just subscribe to the RSS feed. Much easier to stay on top of recent posts that way! 🙂

    • To see the five most recent posts click on “all posts” and they will appear in a sidebar on the computer or at the bottom of the page on mobile.

    I think he’s pretty closeted, and this was part of his way of dealing with his feelings and his religion.

    On another blog I wrote a parody of Sound of Silence for this campaign, but it’s… got adult language and discussion of adult behaviors. Might be NSFW, but it’s all text. Is that ok to post here?
