Biden’s biggest gaffe yet: Chooses Kamala Harris as running mate
Politics & Religion

Young enough, brown enough, and not obviously in possession of anything so quaint as an opinion of her own, Kamala Harris is a perfect fit for a Democratic Party that is as yet still allergic to its own overpowering progressivism and socialism. The people in charge are evidently not of the opinion t

The Unfulfilled Potential of Video Games
Video Game News & Discussions

Gaming is so much more than what shows up at E3.

If I were to point to a relative "nadir" in the creativity of the gaming industry, I might choose... 2009? It's a bit of an arbitrary choice, but my intent is to identify a time following Call of Duty 4 and preceding the boom of indie games. That i

2 ALL YALL SAYIN MASKS DONT WORK
Politics & Religion

Taking a page from the climate change denial playbook I see. If the issue is political, you can simply disregard the scientific consensus when it proves to be inconvenient.

Democrats could stand to learn that there is more to science than retweeting Neil deGrasse Tyson and shunning nonbelievers

2 ALL YALL SAYIN MASKS DONT WORK
Politics & Religion

The government having initially lied on the efficacy of mask use is indefensible, whatever the motivation for doing so, and the trust that they have squandered has not been earned back.

The reluctance to wear masks has a very American character to it. Those that remain most skeptical of this coun

Aspects & Assumptions of Whiteness
Politics & Religion

My examples draw directly from the OP. Delayed gratification, time management, nuclear families, etc. are presented as part of our culture of internalized "whiteness". If it's somehow white to adhere to "rigid time schedules" then what exactly does that mean? Are nonwhite people in some way less sub

Aspects & Assumptions of Whiteness

Black supremacists are no better than white supremacists, though I don’t think that’s what this is.

I agree. But this is part and parcel of the goofy illiberal/collectivist tradition of ascribing literally everything to an invisible bogeyman. Whether it's Jews, patriarchy, the 1%, or (in thi

Question for fans of From Software
Video Game News & Discussions

To my shame I never did get around to Sekiro. I need to fix that soon.

Demon's Souls is a bad name for a good game. Dark Souls really is better in almost every way though, and my favorite game going on ten years... but you might not be unjustified in writing off my devotion as pathological. Dark

There seems to be some debate as to the potential impact of a West candidacy. Some argue that he would draw more from Biden, perhaps assuming that black voters aspire to nothing more electorally significant than another black man to vote for. Others argue that he would draw more from Trump, as disaf

Labeling people eggs (trans people in denial) can be pretty stupid and
both sides do it

Politics & Religion

There is a very real attempt to invalidate transpeople, thus in that vain being an ally means you stand with them on their actual RIGHTS and support their actual RIGHTS and even right to exist. It means that despite these attempts to invalidate them, you see them as valid.

What does the term "trans ally" exist for if not to give people with otherwise ordinary appetites and behaviors some excuse to say that they're part of the club? As I have observed many times, to include the "ally" into the ever expanding acronym of Incredibly Special Persons is to effectively inclu

Nobody holds the hate mob accountable

There's such a large amount of anarchist/communist literature out there explaining what they want to change about society, why and how.

And yet it's never been tried!

That's why I support black lives mattering but I don't support #blacklivesmatter. If that makes any sense. Like, antifa's nam

Businesses get to terminate employment for basically whatever reason they want, and most of the laws in place meant to prevent this (i.e. prosecuting thought crime) are misguided.

Why is this image NOT racist?
Politics & Religion

May I ask what the VISOR was made of?

A banana hair clip, painted gold and silver (with the red dots, of course) and connected to an elastic band. I remember a soft plastic piece glued to the bottom so that it could rest comfortably on my face.

Right wing mistrust for the self regulating mechanisms of social media is a function of their perpetual sense of victimhood. They think that left wing cultural hegemony is so ubiquitous that only the state, presumably led by moral arbiter and occasional "winner" Donald Trump, can give "the right" th

Why is this image NOT racist?
Politics & Religion

I'd posit that it's sort of innately racist for white people to sit around and debate what even is and isn't racist because - as noticeable - white people aren't black.

This thread could be filled with nothing but clones of the Man from Del Monte and the conversation would remain just as valid.

Painting your skin a different color so as to mimic the look of another "race" (to the limited extent that these categories are important or interesting) is not racist. What a person might do while in face paint might be.
