I won't get into an argument on the definition of mental illness, as its late and my philosophy of language is a little rusty.
First of all, the most of the messed up shit people do can't be blamed on mental illness. Ask anyone who works with the mentally ill and/or people who do messed up shit.
Please see the responses to this for the completely rational and not at all paranoid reasons for why any way of organizing any group around GamerGate that would have some kind of accountability for the acts of their most rotten apples would not work, you shill: http://www.zenofdesign.com/dear-gamergate…
The alternative to good.
I fully agree. And, this was also a reality show, so assuming the words and acts of the people involved give a good idea of their thoughts is very naive.
I think people load up on the praise for the beauty of trans women in a way that would be considered inappropriate in a similar context dealing with a cis woman because they are trying to say "I am an ally! I recognize that she is a woman!". They mean well, but have thought more about how they assume their words will…
Would you defend a post from Stormfront the same way? One that delighted in using racial epithets like that post uses "tranny"?
Yet interestingly in the criticism of the show they use arguments lile "how would a trans woman feel of they were told to throw out all the feminine items of clothing in their closet?" and other ways in which not allowing someone to express their gender identity in nonconforming ways is wrong.
A-line skirts FTW. A lot of contemporary clothing lacks decent silhouettes, which are a key thing of you want to look great as in impressive, not great as in "Hollywood Starlet Going To Yoga Class" (it is possible to look skinny and poorly dressed).
Oh 'cmon. Rich is nothing if not down. Why else would you find him at barbershop around the corner?
I can't read a post mentioning Dorien Corey, the courts, and not realizing something until much, much after the act, without linking to this:
That's awesome! I was thinking that ingredients is be one of the things you could display on each product's page, like the director and cast for a film are on Metacritic.
God, that Makeup Alley website looks like they are very commited to celebrating Throwback Thursday. I guess this is as good place as any to ask if there are any web designers or coders with document database experience who'd be interested in being part of building a Metacritic for makeup?
According to science you are 51% correct!
While I see your point, I'd take the responses to The Finger Of God as evidence that she chose her rhetoric well for the intended audience. Especially because the very objective sounding "I'm just asking questions." is exactly the kind of language commonly used by those sympathetic to #gamergate. These are the same…
I would agree with your criticism of this part of her rhetorical strategy, as you say, if the intended audience was different. But she's not writing for fellow scholars, but at least partly to people who might be sympathetic with #gamergate because of they are Critical Thinkers; largely because of the internet there…
Well, that all sounds pretty credible.
I don't know what that means, but I feel like a .gif would be the right response. And no, a .gif is never the right response.
I think another reason why Animal Liberation Front has been accepted as domestic terrorism more broadly is because they are a threat to not just individuals of a certain group, but because they put businesses in danger of property damage and loss of profits.
