Re: "Let her speak, please!" - mansplaining at the World Science Festival

I agree with Nech. I've been the only guy in a gender studies class. I've been one of a couple. I've grappled hard with challenging ideas hat I disagreed with. When I did speak up, I found a generally receptive audience who returned the respect I gave. Pikachu, two things. First, if the class was co...

Re: Rape culture doesn't exist

If rape is normalized, then by default all men are potential rapists. No? If rape culture refers to the normalization of rape through how it's treated in various social interactions and institutions, then that does not refer to seeing every individual as a potential rapist. "Interactions" doesn't p...

Re: Shitty Air Quality

We had forest fires near here last year, and between the haze, the constant smell of smoke, and the coughing it was horrible.

Most distinctive job interview?

At the beginning of this week, I learned that a position was open at a local university and they needed to fill it quickly. I interviewed by the end of the week. We'll see what happens, but it's gotten me thinking about interviews. I always worry a lot about my own performance, even after telling my...

Re: Rape culture doesn't exist

I'll go by number. 1. Given that people often are around a lot of people in their lives, socialize with many, and often date at least a few people, having 13 percent of people be okay with violating someone else's bodily autonomy means that there's a lot of people getting touched without their conse...

If you're going to make up events that haven't happened to make unsupportable guesses about how people will respond, you could at least make it seem like a credible hypothetical event.

Re: Names and gender in comic books

So "women are more likely to have mental powers" because "The patterns make the comic book good," but "who cares?" Do you not care (in which case you don't mind other people talking about gender in comic books, since you don't care), or do you think sexist patterns make comic books good (in which ca...

"Rape culture doesn't exist and you can't prove it with facts" Untrue. Also, when you're dismissing reasonable sources of information without a good reason, then you're not really arguing in good faith. "I want the fbi I want bls" They certainly record instances of reported crimes. That doesn't seem...

I loved when cheesy game shows were the most prominent form of reality T...
