I had to scrub my social media presence because someone got one of my handles mixed up with someone they were doxxing and trying to get fired.

It's not like you have to read about it in Portland. You read it here.

They don't even have to Salem Witch Trial you because they don't like you, they can come at you by mistake and almost ruin your life just as well.

I've _never_ had to fear right wingers this way. Despite being an atheist, telling them so, or challenging their views.

The fact that trying to say "there is a problem" gets stopped with "whoa, whoa, whoa, can we agree there is problems on _both_ sides?" is the most annoying fucking there is. I don't see regular right wing mobs trying to prevent people from speaking on campuses.

It doesn't matter weather you like ole Tucker or not, this kind of bullshit has to stop.
Yes, fuck these people.

One of the jackasses reportedly threw himself against the front door hard enough to crack it.

If I were Tucker's wife, home alone, I'd have been tempted to put a shot through the door.

So apparently if you're white and you get too heavy a suntan, that's racist now too. It's called "brownface."

Speaking of brownface, that reminds me, from two years ago, before the election:
On the Issue of Race, Trump Says “Orange Is The New Black”
By Cornelius Balbinus - August 11, 2016

NEW YORK CITY – In the past, Donald Trump has been accused of being racist towards minorities, including African Americans, Muslims, Hispanics, Jews And Native Americans. But according to Trump that’s all in the past. At a rally outside his Manhattan home in New York City, Trump declared to his legions of followers that, “Orange is the new black, okay people? Believe me.” Trump added, “If you don’t believe me, take a look at the white house in a couple of months.”

. . . Later Donald Trump seemed to get into hot water when he suggested, “look, there’s every color of man here on God’s green Earth…and orange people are the best, I’m sorry, it’s just a fact. And Americans are the best. And orange Americans are the best of the best, and that’s why I’m going to win big in this election.”

Later Trump appeared to walk back his statements, sort of. “Look, I never said orange people were superior, just better. We’re just better people. And we’ll do a better job of running the country than anyone else, no matter what color they are. So no, I’m not racist. I’m better than everyone equally.”
So if orange-face ever becomes a thing, now you know where it started.

This is why Democratic Party propaganda about gun control focuses so much on "assault rifles".

Believe it or not, my reaction to the Tucker Carlson thing is "I don't want jackasses like you on my side, assholes"

I don't like Tucker Carlson. I am all for protest, I waffle on it going to the point of yelling at people in restaurants, but out and out terror attacks crosses a line.

Lately, that has been my reaction to just about every movement I ever supported or was associated with.

I hedge slightly, because I might be forgetting someone.

We share that general principle. Now if only we could get the Mayor of Portland to agree on that point.

Not a problem. I don't like Rachel Maddow. Well, that's not entirely true. She's intelligent, talented, and I used to enjoy her show before she succumbed to Trump Derangement Syndrome. Maybe Lawrence O'Donnell or Jim Acosta is a better example of someone I have little respect for.

Wanna be fashionable?
I mean really fashionable, not just barely acceptable non-trashy.

Particularly if you are female and upper middle class or higher and have some money to spend.

Vogue was and is the magazine for you (no fatties please of course).
As is well known.

Why Do White Women Keep Voting for the GOP and Against Their Own Interests?

Yes that is a link to Vogue.

I know you think you already read that article in Tehh Gruniad earlier today, but this is definitely Vogue and a careful examination of the text shows it is not in fact the same article.

Stay fashionable, gals. :mrgreen:

Its the same smug as "What's the Matter with Kansas?" except that book managed to say "these inbred hicks are duped into voting against themselves" in a pseudo intellectual way so long winded it didn't sound petty.

Financial Times tool warns if articles quote too many men

Paper develops bot in attempt to force writers to look to include more expert women in pieces

The Financial Times is automatically warning its journalists if their articles quote too many men, in an attempt to force writers to look for expert women to include in their pieces.

The media organisation found that only 21% of people quoted in the FT were women, prompting the development of a bot that uses pronouns and analysis of first names to determine whether a source is male or a female. Section editors will then be alerted if they are not doing enough to feature women in their stories.

The paper, which covers many male-dominated industries, is keen to attract more women readers, with its research suggesting they are put off by articles that rely heavily on quotes from men.

Staff were told that, in future, automatic textual analysis could warn FT journalists about the lack of female voices in an article as it is being typed.

A separate experiment to ensure more images of women are used to illustrate FT articles has shown “women are more likely than men to click through on a picture of a woman and less likely than men to click through on a picture containing only men”.

So it's all for profit equality… :mrgreen:

NYC Councilman Wants to Spy on Bar Patrons in Order To Stop Sexual Harassment
Reason
Intent on leaving no space unmoderated by peeping bureaucrats, New York City Councilman Rafael L. Espinal Jr. is advocating for sophisticated surveillance cameras in all nightlife establishments, mandatory sexual-harassment intervention training for their staff, and fines for establishments that don't display signs telling patrons that they're in a "harassment free zone" and "consent is mandatory."

Espinal's proposal would establish all sorts of mandatory digital surveillance of patrons at New York bars, clubs, and restaurants. Per the new rules, businesses would have to install digital video cameras "sufficient [in] number, type, placement, and location to view and record all activity in front of and within 15 feet of either side of each entrance or exit" and these cameras "shall be sufficiently light sensitive and provide sufficient image resolution (supported by additional lighting if necessary) to produce easily discernible images recorded at all times."

...
Analysis:
1) Very likely Espinal has a friend in the security camera business.
2) I will hazard a prediction that the club owners collectively have enough juice to defeat this.

I recommend they not go with the phrasing "consent is mandatory".
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

But otherwise all the security camera stuff is cool?

Or are you just giving them hypothetical tactical advice? 8)

Hypothetical tactical advice.

I endorse zero of it.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight!

Your hypothetical tactical advice makes some sense, but you neglect the fact that part of the deal is making everybody feel watched.

Because if a man is comfortable obeying you, how can you know he obeys your will and not his own?
