News Aggregator Fark Adds Misogyny Ban

Shadow of Eternity Re:ugh... white knights. (638 comments)

No, denying, minimizing, or outright erasing the actual real world actions and character of a movement totally dominated and utterly defined by those crazies is misrepresenting it. People on the internet insisting "feminism is nice and friendly!" do not outweigh people in real life committing felonies and violent crimes.

Shadow of Eternity Re:Fark's slow motion shark jump (638 comments)

MRAs blighting fark? What are you smoking? Pointing out that people are dying after being stripped naked, beaten through the streets, and mutilated with razors and broken glass gets people mocked for "whiny dickfeels".

News Aggregator Fark Adds Misogyny Ban

Shadow of Eternity Re:Manners vs. Censorship (638 comments)

Fark's dominated by people who when confronted with evidence of men in africa being beaten, paraded naked through the streets, mutilated with razors and broken glass, and then many of them left to die of infections afterwards mock people for "whiny dickfeels".

The only "justification" behind this is an ideological purge to turn fark into a jezebel hugbox.

Fark's dominated by people who when confronted with evidence of men in africa being beaten, paraded naked through the streets, mutilated with razors and broken glass, and then many of them left to die of infections afterwards mock people for "whiny dickfeels".

Take a guess how they define "sexism".

News Aggregator Fark Adds Misogyny Ban

Shadow of Eternity Re:Because narrowly defining "sexism" will work! (638 comments)

Fark is dominated by SJWs who regularly get away with everything up to and including mocking people who have a problem with men dying from circumcisions performed with broken glass in the street as "whining about dickfeels", and who think the very idea that men can be raped is laughable.

This is just officially announcing that fark is a tumblr style echo chamber.

You are literally saying that the very act of asking for evidence of something in and of itself IS evidence of it, that goes beyond circular logic into pure absurdity.

Women Founders Outpace Male Counterparts In Certain Types of Kickstarter Funding

Shadow of Eternity Re:See: Anita Sarkeesian (97 comments)

Except what actually happened was she deleted everything BUT troll posts and very likely engaged in sockpuppeting in order to fake her victimhood.

Slashdot Asks: Should Schooling Be Year-Round?

Shadow of Eternity Re:No, school should not be year-round. (421 comments)

American schools brag about how they assign more hours of homework than there are hours in the day, start so early that at some schools (like my own highschool) students need to start getting up as early as 4-5am, see recess as optional, and serve such terrible food in such small quantities that hunger alone hurts kids grades.

Slashdot Asks: Should Schooling Be Year-Round?

Shadow of Eternity Re:No, school should not be year-round. (421 comments)

There is overwhelming empirical evidence that unstructured play is one of the single most important things in every aspect of a child's development, and that the uninterrupted sleep and free activity over summer is crucial to healthy physical growth.

Shadow of Eternity Re:How do investors react to such info? (234 comments)

They'll fall over themselves for it. Current tax laws reward reckless short-term profiteering, that's why you see shit like Hostess and RMoney where executives flat out vampire a company into bankruptcy and then take a golden parachute to the next one. Just a few decades ago tax rates were such that it was much better to develop a stable long-term profit at a lower level and consistently reinvest the rest back into your employees and customers.

Gaza's Only Power Plant Knocked Offline

Shadow of Eternity Re:Radicalization (868 comments)

Gazans aren't israeli citizens. Just under a quarter of Israelis ARE arabs and have full rights, hell they have more rights and freedoms than they do in the west considering Israel recognizes gay marriage and is trans* inclusive while we aren't.

Despite what western media would have you believe Israel is currently receiving unprecedented support in the region from surrounding arab populations who know better than to buy into Hamas' bullshit and media manipulation.

In France, Most Comments on Gaza Conflict Yanked From Mainstream News Sites

Shadow of Eternity Re:Or maybe you're not so good at math (512 comments)

The UN is so ridiculously and blatantly anti-Israel that they sanctioned israel 22 times in a single year but completely ignored genocide in Africa. Top level UN officials have repeatedly admitted the UN is biased, and a majority of the "sanctions" and "statistics" put out are directly from arab nations and representatives within the UN.

Israel already offered a complete capitulation to virtually all demands and a two state solution in the Camp David accords. The Saudi Royal Family flat out said it would be a crime against the palestinian people if Arafat refused. Guess who walked out without even making a counter-offer?

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Shadow of Eternity Re:Pft (962 comments)

So in other words the same thing every other developer also has to deal with, but because she's a woman instead of treating her as a full and complete human we're going to treat her like a special fragile snowflake?

Pretty much. The key seems to be individuals holding the overall group's well being in such regard as to consider it inherently a part of their own well being.

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."
