Okay, even if I stipulate that your premise correct, you think "you're either with us or you're a racist!" is a good rhetorical strategy? The video's take is more along the lines of saying that racism is something all white people, including white liberal and progressive activists, have p...

The New Jim Crow also has some issues, with critiques even coming in from the left . The above-linked Vox article is about Fordham University criminal justice expert John Pfaff's critique of the specific idea that the majority of people in prison are there for low-level drug offenses. The article s...

But they're saying Asperger's doesn't exist, nor does severity, we're all just one size fits all autistic.

No, the DSM 5 specifies 3 severity levels for ASD.

"Well, you see guilt by association is totally different when we do it". How can you possibly NOT see that retweeting something (and, all the more so, retweeting multiple statements with a common theme) (and, especially, retweeting without comment) is more than just "association"...

I hope he's serious, Twitter is such a mess and yet so influential, it would be great to have him in charge of it.

What makes you think he'd be good at running a social media platform?

IMO he should stick to what he's good at.

Yes, there is, there's a ton of "Rowling like a tweet by person X, who has terribly view Y, so she's tainted by association" in many of your posts about this. Usually, when people re-tweet something (especially when they re-tweet it without comment), it means they endorse it. So, saying t...

At one point the video very briefly displays some books about racism by Black people. Those books apparently are: - Stamped From The Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America by Ibram X. Kendi - Sister Outsider by Audre Lorde - A book by or about James Baldwin (I can't see the tit...

I'm honestly not a big fan of the LGBTQ community despite being gay myself. I've tried to get involved with it through facebook and felt that I was either being bodyshamed for how I look or being surrounded by guys who just wanted to have sex with me. It made me uncomfortable. Facebook is probably ...

One of several sources I found right away: What Are the 72 Other Genders? from MedicneNet. Many of those words I've never seen before. Some of them are words I have seen before, but not as "genders" per se . Some of those words pertain to how a person experiences gender. For example, &quo...

I didn't make any of that up. All I did was google "how many genders are there?" Along with "how many preferred gender pronouns are there?", or "list of preferred gender pronouns". Just because someone says something on the Internet (and you found it via Google) doesn'...

To be clear, and I know this sounds like a big contradiction on my part. I really don't actually want a war, but at this point I feel like my country has sunk so low I don't see how we can possibly dig our way out of this mess. It's going to be a lose/lose situation no matter what happens. :| One t...
