Comment Re:Energy density (Score 1) 89

I was hoping someone else figured this one out. I explain to non-technical people all the time that it's not hard to store large amounts of energy in a small space, it's hard to keep that energy from being released all at once in a KB malfunction.

The smart ones ask what KB stands for. The really smart ones figure out it means "KaBoom" on their own.

I love your double standards. Everything feminists want to blame on the current boogeyman is incontrovertibly the fault of that scapegoat. But when someone was so targeted by feminists that her mail was sent directly to a bomb squad, that she was forced to flee the country, and the threats against her are actually played out suddenly you can't accept it.

Gee someone whose mail had been sent directly to a bomb squad rather than her home due to the sheer amount of violent threats, who lived with constant abuse and threats of violence, who was forced to leave one country already due to those threats of violence and continued to receive them here in the US, finally had one of those threats made good on.

I wonder.

Finding her shooting is not difficult at all. As for the cute trick you pulled weaseling in the claim about wikipedia and "independent reliable sources" nothing could be further from the truth. Wikipedia's definition of a "reliable source" is any source which says something approved of by Wikiproject:Feminism. Personal blog posts and tweets are reliable sources for any claim if the person making them is someone like Zoe Quinn while third party newsmedia articles are unreliable if they dispute feminists' claims.

Schumer is a self-admitted rapist who has herself publicly told the story of how she raped a man too drunk to know where he was or who he was with, and Nyberg is a self-admitted pedophile and child predator who's been publicly given pictures of people's children for gratification.

Thanks for demonstrating exactly the behavior I just described.

2. People who subscribe to a critical theory based ideology which rejects the existence of an objective knowable truth and empirical facts in favor of "lived experiences", ranks humans by their immutable characteristics (ie identity politics), and loosely follows marx's descriptions of class warfare and oppression only applied to gender and race instead of the original means of production/proletariat dynamic. In behavior SJWs are politically illiberal, dismissive of enlightenment values such as freedom of speech and even thought, hostile to dissenting opinions and cast disagreement as "harassment" and "violence", openly engage in racism and sexism but claim it "doesn't count" because of their own internal definition for those words granting them immunity, and generally hostile to the idea of the presumption of innocence. As a group the dynamic hits on basically every definition of a cult or abusive relationship and they respond with extreme hostility and often outright violence to anyone disagreeing with them, often verbalizing that they're allegedly being attacked and victimized even while they physically attack someone else. Given the cult-like nature of SJWism it's unsurprising that high ranking or profitable in-group members are given a pass for any level of misconduct, even for things like pedophilia and rape (sarah nyberg and amy schumer respectively), as long as they rank highly enough in the oppression olympics or continue to "kiss the ring" and bring in money or influence.

I could keep going into more specific ideological tenets common across the SocJus spectrum but these are the generalities.

3. Your entire post history is filled with rampant illiberalism, hostility to due process and the presumption of innocence, witch hunting, and the defense of in-group members for things you'd pillory outsiders over.
