Why the Trolls Will Always Win

Shadow of Eternity Re:THings I've learned from Slashdot (716 comments)

That's because the article is full of shit. Leigh Alexander is an avowed racist that's repeatedly talked about how much she despises "hood rats" and "hood men", how she means even worse slurs than "hood" or "ghetto", and how she wants to smash glass bottles on black mens' faces for looking at her. In case you're not from the south a black man being attacked for "eyeballing" a woman is one of the oldest and longest running forms of racial violence. Remember Emmett Till?

Leigh's about as feminist as a snake oil salesman. She just uses the title because she knows anything she does will be, as intersectional feminist Philip Wythe puts it, "sanitized": http://theflounce.com/harassme...

You: "Oh I know exactly the event you're talking about but I'm going to try poisoning the well and conflating two different times the same hate crime was committed"
Me: "So not only do you know exactly what I'm talking about, you also just brought up a second where domestic violence victims were silenced"
You: "You can't support your claims, you're deflecting you're deflecting!"

That's two seperate events, and the one you're talking about was where domestic violence victims were trying to speak about being turned away from shelters or threatened with arrest. You just shot yourself in the foot bringing that up.

Jack Thompson stuck around for years despite the exact same treatment. Everyone needs to stop looking at this from the angle of treating women like weak hapless victims and start teaching women to ignore trolls like everyone else.

Shadow of Eternity Re:If you want to cover Gamergate, do it honestly (716 comments)

First off he's not a raging asshole who got dumped, he is a domestic abuse victim that dumped his abuser. And that's according to the transgender feminist so Social Justicey they wanted to put trigger warnings in the Great Gatsby. Second if you want to talk about armies of sauron you should look at the racist, sexist, transphobic criminals you're siding with. The people so violent and sociopathic that women brave enough to build girls schools in pakistan are afraid of revenge attacks for being a "gender traitor".

Maybe you should try listening to intersectional feminists instead of cracked.

You should read this article by a transgender feminist if you believe that. And seriously? Citing cracked?

This is the sort of thing you're defending here:

Yeah if you want to make that argument trying to do so by attacking intel for dropping ads at a website whose EIC is an avowed racist that doxxes people and so on is hardly the right way to do it. You're not helping your side of the argument here.

Shadow of Eternity Re:WHY are men trying to scare women away from gam (716 comments)

Over a million tweets averaging between 30-50 thousand a day is hardly a "few", nor are people who raise $70,000 for feminists to fund female game developers "obnoxious assholes".

Your theory falls flat when it turns out men get the same shit women do and the difference is in how everyone ELSE reacts. Men are expected to deal with it or ignore it, women get a crusade against the troll because "ZOMG MISOGYNY!"

Nobody is trying to scare women away. Men get the Same Shit, the only difference is men are taught to ignore it or deal with it. Women are taught to damsel themselves and be helpless victims. Nobody cares when men get trolled or doxxed or swatted, when women get so much as trolled it's the end of the world.

Shadow of Eternity Re:Sscientific study on freeculture and gender gap (716 comments)

This isn't a study, it's unscientific and draws a bullseye around the argument the author WANTED to win. Like HedgeMage wrote the problem is the other way around from what that author tries to shoehorn. Women aren't raised to be nerds, not the other way around. They're raised in a culture that demeans and attacks nerds and tech and taught to be hypoagent and rely on damseling.

Shadow of Eternity Re:The sad truth (716 comments)

The solution is to get feminists to stop opposing equal custody and start supporting paternity leave as well as maternity leave. In countries that have that there's no meaningful "penalty" for pregnancy or childrearing.

Shadow of Eternity Re:Don't over generalize (716 comments)

Women aren't the first target of choice, they're just the first target everyone ELSE will give a shit about. Troll a hundred men and nobody will give a fuck, they'll be expected to just ignore you or deal with it. Troll one woman and people will scream "misogyny" as she damsels.

Women aren't attacked for being women, their attacks just aren't IGNORED like mens' are. When a man is trolled he's told to deal with it. When a woman is trolled they damsel and people like you raise the hue and cry of misogyny and discrimination.

Shadow of Eternity Re:Don't over generalize (716 comments)

Jack Thompson got the same threats and many men have been doxxed. Moving and running away for 7 years are purely things SHE CHOSE to do, not something she was forced to do. Men aren't given the luxury of doing things like that and having it considered reasonable behavior.

Shadow of Eternity Re:Don't over generalize (716 comments)

The worst slurs against men right now all attack them for either being male or being an unattractive male. If you want your family to understand gender equality you're going in the wrong direction.

Bill Clinton aids uranium company, gets donation

Shadow of Eternity Shadow of Eternity writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Shadow of Eternity (795165) writes "In an interesting visit to Kazakhastan former president Bill Clinton has not only turned the uranium mining industry on it's head, but also contradicted US and international foreign policy and recieved a substantial donation (and pledged future donation) to the William J. Clinton Foundation.

"Mr. Nazarbayev walked away from the table with a propaganda coup, after Mr. Clinton expressed enthusiastic support for the Kazakh leader's bid to head an international organization that monitors elections and supports democracy. Mr. Clinton's public declaration undercut both American foreign policy and sharp criticism of Kazakhstan's poor human rights record by, among others, Mr. Clinton's wife, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York.... Within 48 hours of Mr. Clinton's departure from Almaty on Sept. 7, Mr. Giustra got his deal. UrAsia signed two memorandums of understanding that paved the way for the company to become partners with Kazatomprom in three mines."

Given that these incidents occured as far back as 2005 and are only now being reported just before the Super Tuesday primary elections one has to wonder if the NY Times planned to help Bill finally screw his wife."
