    Commented in Anne Hathaway denounces white privilege in award speech

    Can't stand her on screen. Nails on a chalkboard. And Thanos is high. Once he got the Reality Stone, he could've erased scarcity itself instead of half of everyone. Problem solved.

    You are nothing if not a man of principle. However much it grinds your gears, the quote above is worlds away from a clarion call to self-loathing for whining, straight, white males. Reads to me like it's meant as humility before World Problems.

    How much needless hate and loathing has been justified by saying "That's just the way it is?"

    Whether you're trying to hear it or not, what this pampered rich bitch and UN goodwill ambassador is saying is it doesn't have to be.

    Say what you will about the shrillness of her voice, she ain't wrong.

    The closest I can find to the hatemongering you've put her down for is saying that myths like the pontification found elsewhere in this thread must be challenged. Eventually, even destroyed. Unless you think people are the myths they believe, that's not even about people.

    It's sure as fuck not about making whiny, straight, white males loathe themselves. Unless you mean they, somehow, are the myths they believe too.

    Where're you getting any of that from? Feel free to cite specific quotes from Hathaway's speech. In fact, feel obliged to.

    I'm kinda surprised by this. You — of anyone I know — disapproving of something intrinsic to who people are? What, do queer folks have something they need to be ashamed of? Should they take their gaybashings calmly, knowing that it's their fault? I mean, it's not like they're gingers... You know they're born without a soul, right?

    Pretty sure society and nature flourishes and perpetuates around heterosexuality.

    Well, pretty sure life perpetuates around not getting killed. Yet, self-sacrifice of the kind that makes people run into burning buildings or into enemy fire across No Man's Land is still a part of who we are. How does that happen? Is there an evolutionary advantage in altruism that pays off in the long, long run? There are those who speculate the answer there may lie in something called "kin selection." The advantage may well be in the protection of one's kin. The biologist J. B. S. Haldane once said he was prepared to lay down his life for eight cousins or two brothers, and it's not too far to speculate that may be at the heart of the matter.

    Homosexuality is widespread in the animal kingdom. How hard can it be to imagine there may be an evolutionary advantage in that? Or that it's a part of life?

    To associate ethnicity and sexuality (or gender) is a false dichotomy.

    Not a dichotomy.

    gender stereotypes (which evolved over what was best to perpetuate society)

    Any basis for that conjecture, or are we just riffing here?

    HOWEVER, sexuality is not

    Easy for you to say. For many folks, their sexuality is a thing. I'm not altogether clear why someone would think that was up to them to decide for others.

    Goodness these people think in such small, myopic terms.

    "These people?" Eesh. Right back at ya.

    Yes, when will lesbians learn their place?

    Commented in We Cannot Fight Climate Change With Capitalism, Says Report

    Straight up, if the public has no education, then it is not a democracy. If it is your view that democracy always turns into demagoguery, that's cool. I'm fine dismissing democracy as mob rule. It's not like conceding that is going to lower property values, there being so very little that is democratic. Take the U.S. Democratic Party for instance, a private club that argues it has no legal obligation to be democratic. Know what else inevitably turns to demagoguery? Everything. Mao, Amin, Pol Pot, Stalin, Nixon — none of these creatures crawled out of the primordial muck of democracy to evolve into what they would become. Still not buying that democracy is responsible for runaway global warming. Why not Russian trolls? Or Antifa? Or Tucker Carlson?

    Yes, because when you find the YouTube comments on Fox segments are disagreeable, that's how you know Russian agents are trying to sap your precious bodily fluids.

    Why is 'protest' in quotes? What is that, like, 3/5 of a protest?

    Newsweek is liberal media to you? Huh. “Defended?” You keep using that word. I don’t think it means what you think it means. Someone that doesn’t immediately accept everything you say isn’t ‘defending’ the monster that lives under your bed.

    Commented in California's response to record wildfires: shift to 100% clean energy

    Anthropogenic global warming, yes or no?

    Arson? Who’re these arsonists? Is it Antifa? Because I bet it’s Antifa, right? And here, I thought it was the energy utility PG&E, with their ancient, decrepit above and below-ground monopoly infrastructure.

    Lack of controlled burns? Maybe I’m surprised because I live in California, and I see them. You might think California is an isolated backwater around forest management. Not so much, although you’re right, I’m not entirely certain every neighorhood in the city of Santa Rosa is doing everything they can with controlled burns.

    It’s true, there’s nothing as enjoyable as fresh socks. Well, except maybe wholesale rollbacks of environmental laws. For some folks, not only are they a pure delight, like your new socks, they’re about about feeling good. For now.

    We’re clear that greenhouses gasses trap heat in the atmosphere, driving global warming and the effects of climate change, like the firestorms all over California now, right? So unless your new socks stop you having to run your gas guzzler, I’m not getting the metaphor.

    Commented in Folks Are Angry Over Fox News Job-Shaming Ex-'Cosby' Actor For 'Bagging Groceries'

    How is that, by the ageless principle that “If you smelt it, then you dealt it?” I’m not saying The Daily Fail and Faux News are yellow journalism — you know that as well as I do — but if we’ve any honesty at all, observing how an issue is framed is not the same thing as framing it that way.

    To me, this smacks of misanthropy.

    One might as well say "The problem isn't carbon emissions, it's repulsive body odor."

    Or, "The problem isn't the caste system, it's those disgusting Untouchables, Unseeables and Unapproachables."

    Chemnitz [Saxony, Germany] police order far-right protesters to go home

    Two competing demonstrations in Chemnitz were very much a clash of two Germanys. No police presence could obscure the fundamental conflict, indeed naked hatred, between these two sets of people.
