Suddenly Visible: Illicit Drugs As Part of Silicon Valley Culture

Kielistic Re:The only good thing (452 comments)

What logical fallacy? You said people that smoke are "not fine" and anybody that thinks otherwise is stupid. I merely told you you were wrong. It is not a fallacy to tell you that you are wrong. The "false cause" of "smoke marijuana -> not fine" is the logical fallacy here.

You don't just get to assert that most people that smoke have their lives ruined because of it.

Suddenly Visible: Illicit Drugs As Part of Silicon Valley Culture

Kielistic Re:The only good thing (452 comments)

Then you're a fucking stupid kid who can't tell the difference between people looking fine and people being fine.

You are the stupid one here. There are millions of people that have smoked marijuana and continue to smoke marijuana that are more stable, more successful and more happy than you are. It wasn't just those "popular" kids that smoke; it is people form every walk of life.

The model you are talking about is called boids. It is a relatively simple AI model that demonstrates emergent behaviour.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Kielistic Re:Pft (957 comments)

My point was that survey was designed specifically to prove the authors' biases. That men rape women at alarming rates. It is an immediately visible flaw in their methodology. I did not have time to look through it in depth to find how many other flaws it has. I predict a few more. The original sentiment put forward was that results of these studies are wildly inconsistent. I am suggesting that is because of bias from those performing them.

It is also relevant because if you look up a bit you will notice Rei using these kind of numbers to show why women have more to fear about these things than men. Well when these numbers are so specifically tailored to completely erase female perpetrators and male victims then of course women are going to be the primary victims.

White men do. But the point about this article is that women get it much, much more.

And others disagree which is why they're trying to give you evidence to the contrary. I would say that this dogmatic belief of yours causes you to ignore and overlook any contrary information and thus reinforces your bias. Some might even think that's a bit "special".

I was kidding.. I actually agree with you completely. I was saying that if you assert it is not a problem for men and ignore/write off any occurrence then of course it will look like only women suffer from it.

Kielistic Re:This is bullshit (957 comments)

I think you just proved the parent's point. "These days, it's men who are being 'carefully socialized' to dance around feminist gynocentric expectations and value systems." To which you respond: "Listen to the answers and then start looking at your own behavior."

Kielistic Re:Trigger warnings inidicate deeply held bias (957 comments)

Then tend to dial back the blatant bigotry and use other hand waving to come to basically the same conclusion. "Men are the problem", "Women are held back by men", "Men hate and harass women", etc.

Third and "Fourth" wave feminism took radfem rhetoric and gave it a sugar coating. And simply say "you just don't understand what feminism is about" and "you're talking about radfems" if anyone points this out. They "loathe" radfems because they needed a sacrificial lamb.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Kielistic Re:Let me count the ways (957 comments)

You are going off with anecdotal bullshit again. "It's not uncommon" does not mean anything. It's hand waving to make it seem common.

FeministFrequency's "in depth" talks are laughably horrible. I agree though, everyone should watch them so that they understand the intellectual honesty behind the "sexism is everywhere" griefers. It is completely biased nonsense that has been pointed out hundreds of times. Of course every time someone explains why she is wrong then she and people like you use that as proof that she is right.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Kielistic Re:Occams Scalpel (957 comments)

The best thing you could do to help women in this struggle is to shut up. You are exactly the one-sided, brazenly biased overtly obtuse caricature that people have a problem with.

You are of the opinion that nothing bad happens to men and it always happens to women. This does nothing but hurt the conversation because it's demonstrably untrue. I assure you that, as a man, I have been groped at bars, grabbed on the bus, shouted at, "objectified" and all manner of things that would be considered "sexual harassment" in the workplace if it happened to a woman. Just because it doesn't happen to you does not mean it doesn't happen. Some of us guys actually have nice asses.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Kielistic Re:Pft (957 comments)

RAINN's "1 in 6" stat's reference defines rape as:

Rape was defined as an event that occurred without the victim’s consent, that involved the use or threat of force to penetrate the victim’s vagina or anus by penis, tongue, fingers, or object, or the victim’s mouth by penis.

It is exactly this completely biased "survey" method that make people conclude these groups have an ideology to push. The methodology in all of these surveys that show high numbers is always pretty poor and clearly biased. This is as close to "only men can rape" as they could get without explicitly stating "only men can rape".

An ad-hom fallacy is attacking someone's character to disprove their argument. For example: "serviscope_minor is an idiot and doesn't understand what logical fallacies are and therefore everything they say can be considered stupid and wrong".

You are trying to commit a fallacy fallacy (asserting someone committed a fallacy so their argument can be ignored). But you seem to have no idea what a fallacy is (lying isn't a fallacy by the way) and ended up just committing one yourself.

Almost never happens to guys and happens "pretty much constantly" to girls. I guess I should just accept your bold assertion without any evidence? It is easy to make a problem look one sided when you completely ignore all but one side.

If it happens to a man it's made up and we should ignore it. If it happens to a woman it's super important, not exaggerated, totally legit and we have to "realise the universality of it and the impact on a real person". Got it.

And men were supposed to go out and work themselves to death to pay for that woman to not have to do the same. They were expected to always put woman's health and well-being above their own (and still are according to this article). Stop being so myopic.

Ah yes, the old "sometimes a white man gets shit so sexism and racism doesn't exist" argument. You do know that's an unsound argument, right?

You do know that's not what the poster was saying at all, right? You do know that strawmaning is an unsound argument, right?

You continually repeat that white men don't deal with these issues. Then when a white man comes out a says "well actually I do have to deal with those issues" you insult them and say they're implying racism/sexism doesn't exit.

Congrats on exemplifying exactly why the parent poster is so fed up with you idiots.

Sexual Harassment Is Common In Scientific Fieldwork

Kielistic Re:Such harassment (362 comments)

The questions are designed to establish a pattern of behaviour.

You can say that again. The questions are designed with a conclusion already in mind.

If you are depending on "the context" and what's "fairly clear" in a study you want to pass off as scientific then you need to be ousted from the field immediately. I would say that only people looking to deliberately misrepresent data would ask such an ambiguous statement in a survey.

It seems that for all the progress that has been made we still have a very long way to go, with such a large number of people still in denial.

Yeah, idiots like you keep getting in the way of real progress.

Sexual Harassment Is Common In Scientific Fieldwork

Kielistic Re:Such harassment (362 comments)

An erection is probably evidence of consent

How come I never see something like this mentioned when feminists talk about "rape culture"?

To answer your actual question they do it by saying that the act of penetration has to be done by the aggressor. Otherwise it's not rape.

Sexual Harassment Is Common In Scientific Fieldwork

Kielistic Re:Such harassment (362 comments)

Women do use that as an excuse for irritability and bad behaviour frequently enough that maybe these men are just willing to take women's word for something that they, as men, have no experience with. And being that many women do experience cramps and general uncomfortableness they may very well be extra irritable. But you're right, it's probably just horrible sexism from men again.
