I hope that everybody noted that one of the symptoms of hipsterism is "talking about your bike". Do you really want to be considered a hipster?

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... z2KS1eQ7iq
For more than two years Margot Woelk had to taste Hitler's food to ensure it was not poisoned.
She feasted on fresh fruit and vegetables including asparagus, peppers and peas, while her fellow Germans were being rationed.
Mrs Woelk, now 95, was one of a dozen women the Fuhrer used to protect himself at his Eastern front HQ known as the Wolf's Lair.
...
'It was all vegetarian, the most delicious fresh things, from asparagus to peppers and peas, served with rice, and salads. It was all arranged on one plate, just as it was served to him.'
She did not recall tasting any meat or fish and did not have to try out drinks.
The Mail is a shit rag but I will believe this story from them, they have their connections.
I wonder how much of the murderous behavior exhibited by vegetarians is due to eating a lot of grain products such as bread?
I was reading some stuff on the internet lately (maybe here) that documented how bad bread is.
Phil! Bakeries are evil! Get as far away from that concept as you can!!!

Jack wrote: I think some have Sociopathic tendencies. They don't understand why their words upset people so much so they set up a whole line of defences to try and deal with it. Couple that with being spoilt and indulged brats all their life and you have a recipe for social disaster. I rarely see such self absorption outside A+ and FtB. Oh, and they seem to posses no sense of humour what so ever so fail to grasp irony or satire. Not all are like that, there are also some deliberately stirring the pot for their own political agendas.

If Atheism Plus did not have the word Atheism in it I would not give a toss about them (it has nothing to do with atheism anyway) But people looking to receive help or information about atheism are in for a shock and may get a terrible impression which, unfortunately, they will accept as a general rule due to their own religious indoctrination.

The very idea that to be a free thinker or atheist REQUIRES Rad Fem doctrine is asinine. IF they want to chat about their feminism good luck to them, just don't high-jack another belief system to do it. That is dishonest. Their whole approach is based on a delusion and a lie.
I agree. Imagine if some chaps turned up at a radfem conference, started saying they were sexually harrassed and demanding they talk about UFOlogy.

The problem is they are not any of the things they claim to be. They are poseurs. Hipster ideologues. They have probably, if any of them ever bothered, found that actual activism wasn't focussing enough on how awesome they are and left to try something more about them, if they were not (as some claim) kicked out of every group they joined. There inflexibility is so complete that they are dysfunctional normally, so in a political field, which is about compromise and diplomacy, they are utterly detrimental yet sanctimoniously and with such arrogance and obliviousness claim they are the "good guys."

That sort of "good guy" given power tends either to be executed by his own people or foreign governments or his country ruined by the international community. We call them extremists. Their beliefs are irrelevant.

I wonder if Zvan will tell Ophelia her opinion on the use of hashtags:

Jezebel also has a post about the hashtag (http://jezebel.com/5982901/feminists-ar ... on-twitter). In my opinion, all these "trolling" and mocking only succeeded in making them look like angry bigoted haters, but maybe I'm just having an optimistic day.

I'm sure assholes shout things at me when I'm running, but I can't hear them now because of my iPod + recently-purchased decent sports earbuds. If the asshole 1) lives in my neighborhood and 2) drives a huge pickup, SUV, or muscle car, then I might bestow one of my special stickers on their vehicle, while out running under cover of dark. The stickers read "Ask me about my TINY PENIS!"

Reminds me of the incident at the university swimming pool when I was in grad school: there was a guy who would pull down his Speedo and expose himself underwater when a women swam by in the next lane. I was asked whether I'd seen him expose himself, because I swam laps there 2 or 3 times per week. I replied, "I don't know - I don't wear my contact lenses while swimming and don't see particularly well without them, so if he exposed himself I couldn't really see anything."

Sometimes ignorance really is bliss.
I've been looking at that exchange of tweets, on and off, all day trying to make sense of it.
Is there a mis-spelling? Did she not hear correctly? Did the dude actually say something about "fat"? Is there some use of the word "hat" of which I was previously unaware? Was the Stefalump sexually assaulted by a sombrero at some point?

The longer I spend, even remotely aware of the antics of the baboons the more bizarre everything seems.
There's a tremendous scene in Philip Kaufman's 1978 remake of "Invasion of the Bodysnatchers", where Donald Sutherland is wandering around San Francisco. He's increasingly disorientated. The camera stays low and swirls around him. Formerly familiar surroundings seem inexplicably changed and he doesn't know why. He can see something is wrong but he doesn't know what and no-one else seems to notice.
The baboons really do seem to live in a parallel universe where the basic element isn't hydrogen but rather, paranoia.

Either that, or PZ is really Andy Kaufman.

Do you had goat's heads? They are little burrs shaped like caltrops that were always sticking in the tires of the shit bike I road in AZ. I should have bought stock in tire goo self-sealant.

The worst thing about goat's heads? They would break off in the tire and puncture and the embedded barb could puncture your tire at odd moments. Basically, get enough barbs in your tire, you were going to go through tubes like popcorn.

I think it's not really about sexual harassment or assault, but a case of "you can't tell me what to do".

http://img823.imageshack.us/img823/2702/43440833.png

It doesn't make a lot of sense to tell that a complete stranger, but it's possible the guy was actually trying to give her some advice, if the day was really really cold. It's weird how she gets really offended at things most of the people has forgotten about an hour later.

And then it takes Melody Hensley to turn a one time situation into a "happens-all-the-time" situation that describes the relationship between the genders:

Altair, that's precisely the way I saw it. I even put red squares around it when I added it to my collection. They always have to speak in terms of gender. As if strange people (both men or women) never shout directions at men on the streets, in which I usually yell "FUCK YOU" back at them. These radfem-fucktards wouldn't be able to survive in a big city.

So Greta decided to write this a while back, and not sure if anyone caught it, but the rape rates in Edmonton actually increased after this campaign was introduced.

http://www.edmontonsun.com/2012/01/26/s ... se-in-city
I wrote a blog about it. http://unsolicitedcomment.wordpress.com ... christina/

She got it badly and misleadingly wrong. Her supporter hjhornbeck says (essentially) "So what? She wasn't writing a formal paper!" and the campaign DID work because the police used the word 'success'.

Have to admit, it's as funny as fuck seeing such bold freethinkers and social justice warriors (working for societal change, donchaknow!) greet the idea of being part of a small, censorious enclave with such enthusiasm.

Normal person: what ya doin?

I have a very good impression of the Finns based on the very few I have met. Even more impressive in my opinion, was how the Finns put a serious hurting on Russians in WWII.

Richard Dworkins wrote: The issue with that is less critical theory and more the misunderstanding of the fundamental idea (which is based around Arch Sophist Derrida's idea of deconstruction as I am sure you are aware).
I had to stop there and search my memory. Then I realized that no, indeed I can not recall much about Derrida except for some generalized ideas which do not translate well into English. So I did a search and came across this:

A READER'S GUIDE TO "PLATO'S PHARMACY"
http://www.lawrence.edu/dept/english/co ... rmacy.html
"Plato's Pharmacy," one of Derrida's most influential and amusing early essays, was first published in 1972 and translated into English in 1981. The English translation, which was done by Barbara Johnson, is available in Dissemination, a collection of Derrida's essays published by the University of Chicago Press.

What is "Plato's Pharmacy" about? Hoo boy. What is it not about? Perhaps the best way to answer that one is by saying that the essay offers a close--no, make that a very close--reading of the Phaedrus, a dialogue by Plato. One of Derrida's goals in this essay is to show that although Plato tries to construct a number of hard and fast distinctions--such as the distinction between philosophy and mythology--those distinctions are actually undermined by his own logic and rhetoric.
So now I am going to disappear for awhile. I skimmed enough to determine that it is interesting enough to read slowly and savor. Not sure if I should thank you or curse you at this point, my reading list is already a mountain and this has just skipped to the head of the line.

I am also resisting the urge to reread the Republic, despite my lingering horror whenever I contemplate Socrates, who I have always seen as a dreadfully jumped up little man too much in love with himself, and who delighted in rubbing the noses of his "betters" in shit.

Oh a master in rethoric to be sure but I think he got way too pleasure in leading people up and down, and back and forth by the nose. He was a fucking sadistic bully.

I know he was a man of his times and the times were rough, but he was presented to me as the second coming of Jesus Christ and he clearly was not.
Richard Dworkins wrote: You are correct, they have placed themselves in a maze with no centre or exit. They are neither skeptics nor atheists. Athenists perhaps.
Possibly proof of impending full fledged senility, was that I first saw this as a reference to Pallas Athena, before realizing that the story of her creation would not go down well with that lot.

FFS, Ophelia Benson is such a fucking hypocrite.

Here's an article where she and her commenters BAG ON A WOMAN BECAUSE OF HER APPEARANCE.
And what's more, saying she's NOT QUALIFIED FOR A JOB because of it.

http://www.freezepage.com/1360468357JOCHDEDEHS

I'm not parodying, here: I'm serious. You can't fucking harp on your gender feminist ideology one moment and then fucking drop it to bitch about an attractive woman being cast as Anne of Green Gables (and calling her Anne of Titty Gables because of it).

I've gotta say - it appears their feminism is for unattractive women. There seems to be a resentment of stereotypically attractive women here...

(Note: NateHevens even says "all pornstars are blonde". He obviously doesn't ever watch porn.)

HOLY SHIT. Ophie slut shames in comment 3 accusing the woman of being a "pouty poochy seductive type who lounges around with her hand in her hair posing for an ad for the local bordello."

BECAUSE SHE PUT HER HAND IN HER HAIR.

Is there a mis-spelling? Did she not hear correctly? Did the dude actually say something about "fat"? Is there some use of the word "hat" of which I was previously unaware? Was the Stefalump sexually assaulted by a sombrero at some point?
Lacking much by way of context I admit this is a complete guess, however, going on the phrase being uttered as it was reported I'd wager that it is plausible that at the time, she was riding a bicycle sans a protective helmet for her noggin. Not normally referred to as a hat I'll grant but perhaps the motorist in a fit of pique upon seeing a fellow road user improperly attired fumbled their words as they voiced a reprimand; technically cyclists should be wearing helmets which would dovetail with the phrase uttered. Aside from that I can't imagine any reasonable interpretation for saying such unless they happened to be on a construction site or other mandated hard hat area.

Oh, Ophie. Oh, Ophie!
It's cute how she tries to deflect the blame into others when she's taken to task by one of her own. After calling the woman in the pic a "pouty poochy seductive type". she now has to backpedal and blame the producers when her own tactics are used against her.

Related to the pouty poochy, posing for a bordello ad, is this quote from a reader that appears in the article Ophelia links to (underline mine)
Another pointed out that "Anne has red hair. RED HAIR. It's a key part of her character and is a strong influence on her words and actions. Secondly, Anne is 10 at the start of the series. What is up with the bedroom eyes? Did they just do a Google image search for Sexy Farmgirl? Does anyone publishing this book have any idea of what the stories are actually about?" setting up a plea to "keep Anne ginger".
Dafuq? Seductive type? Posing for a bordello ad? Bedroom eyes? I'm a straight male, and when I look at that picture, I don't see any of those things. I see a girl with pretty eyes who happen to be smiling (not pouting). I don't see the "come ravish me" attitude. The most I could read from her face and attitude is an "I'm happy to see you" vibe.

Again, they seem to have a more objectifying, hostile "gaze" than the rest of us.

Me too, for the aforementioned serving of embarrassment they served up to the Red Army but mostly for Nightwish and Tarja.

Clearly, mine has that deep red colour that is most becoming of a lady, and is that a slur upon blondes anyway? Is hair shaming okay?
