    I had to reevaluate everything I thought I knew after Cabin in the Woods too, but that didn't knock Strangelove off the list.

    Commented in What do you do when you feel sad?

    That's a hard question, not knowing any of what's got you down.

    My usual method is to keep busy. If you're going to be miserable, you know that, and dwelling on it isn't going to get you anywhere, might as well make the time count. Some part of your brain'll be cranking away on the torment, but meanwhile things get sorted out. Clean things, organize whatever, finally deal with some long-procrastinated chores, solve pesky issues that melt away with a little foresight and elbow grease.

    The redeeming power of hard work is an easy thing to suggest here. It doesn't have any of the follow-on affects that overdoing other self-care can have. Like, if your go-to move for crushing waves of sorrow is eating really well, it can work, but a couple of extra stones of weight comes with its own tangential issues.

    Or, journaling for instance. Maybe it works for some folk, but I'd rather not get sucked into myself if I'm not fit company to be around.

    What do you do? What did you do over the last hour since you posted?

    Commented in Anne Hathaway denounces white privilege in award speech

    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.

    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.
