Re: The social justice wars

Kevin, I want to lay down my sword for a moment and speak to you as a friend. I have known you for a long time and I still have a great deal of respect for you for what you have accomplished in the past. So I want to say something that I feel very strongly about and I hope that you take it in the ri...

Re: The social justice wars

P.S. I'm also subscribed to the NYT and have been trying to find articles critical of antifa and the alt-left. I haven't found any yet. I've only found articles which excuse the violence of the left. It only took me a couple of minutes to find a few articles which explores the violence of antifa an...

Re: The social justice wars

The main fault in David's reasoning is that he is asserting an urgent need for radical shift towards rationality *only* for men, and *only* in their relationship towards women. He is completely ignoring the fact that such a need, by definition, must apply to all people in all contexts in order to b...

Re: The social justice wars

I'm telling you that none of the things you obsess about ever registers on these people's radars. Firstly, I'm not "obsessing" about anything. Your words and actions say otherwise. Even those in your corner, such as jupiviv and Diebert, have noticed it. A number of people who have written to me pri...

Re: The social justice wars

You have forgotten what mainstream left-wing people are like. No, you are in denial that the left has become overrun by crazy authoritarian SJWs and feminists. Kevin, I've just spent three years hanging around mainstream people, including a lot of Labor voters (our left-wing party here in Australia...

Re: The social justice wars

What does it mean to "go over to their side"? If you are in the southern hemisphere, does it mean moving to the northern hemisphere? Does it mean that you have to sign up as a fundamentalist Christian or a nazi? I am talking about mentally going over to their side. So you mean actually becoming a f...

Re: The social justice wars

the unnecessary hostility that often accompanies these truths, a hostility that springs from thousands of years of contempt for women. I think this is only in your imagination. In cases where there is hostility I don't believe it has anything to do with the fact that women are involved, but only th...

Re: The social justice wars

To get a better handle on my approach to the SJW issue, let's look at a specific example - that of women being sexually harassed on public transport. It is a common problem that affects many women in all parts of the world. Here is an article that I read today, which prompted me to write this post: ...

Re: The social justice wars

Woman’s proneness to being spooked is a reality that has to be dealt with. We can’t just ignore it, not if we actually want to resolve the issue. If we continue to pretend that this feature of feminine psychology doesn’t exist and continue to confront these left-wing women in a hostile manner, then...

Re: The social justice wars

David is gone already, don't even worry about him! Once the 'white knight' pill has gotten to your head you're lost for good. How he manages to all at once agree by his own word that women are more privileged than men and then also say that men are *relatively* hostile toward women is insane. Hosti...

Re: The social justice wars

Are you at war with modern society itself? Modern society is not a singular entity, but is composed of many different cultures. I'm obviously not against all of modern society - only the worst parts of it. That is good to hear. I am like that as well. There are parts of modern society I like, parts...

Re: The social justice wars

The last time Western civilization was in the grip of fundamentalist Christianity (i.e. Europe in the Middle Ages), it took centuries for us to climb out of that particular hole. Anyone who tried to promote rationality within the culture was quickly persecuted. Galileo was ex-communicated; Bruno wa...

Can you clarify what you mean by this? I've already explained this many times, so I am repeating myself. I am pro freedom of speech, and anti authoritarian. Sorry, you must have misunderstood. I was asking you this question: You are creating the impression that you have become part of an extreme re...

Re: The social justice wars

Yes, but hostility is at the root of it all. Ignorance is, of course, what's really at the root. Because old school white males have a long history of treating women and minority groups like shit. "It was the males who formed a buffer between the females and the dangerous world outside. It was thei...

Re: The social justice wars

I want to zero in and focus on something Kevin said a couple of days ago: If the Republicans had their way, they would be installing fundamentalist Christianity across the length and breadth of the land We would have to cross that bridge when we come to it. For now, we have to tackle the problems th...

Re: The social justice wars

America is entering a very dangerous period now. Trump's presidency is all but over. His sheer ineptitude and vacuousness has led him blindly into a hole from which he cannot escape. He has no choice but to go fully feral. This is not going to be pretty to watch. That could mean anything really. Wh...

Re: The social justice wars

In my view it's the SJWs and the "regressive left" who want to go back to "the good old times". You even have feminists calling for women to completely cover themselves with burkas, and supporting fundamentalist Islam. They want separate laws for men and women. Many of the extreme left are calling ...

Re: The social justice wars

Men need to stop being hostile towards women. ... The anti-SJW movement is never going to succeed in its aims if it continues to treat women and minority groups as the enemy. But hostility and animosity is not the issue at all, it's not even the complaint from the SJW! It's for example way more abo...
