Submission + - Your Princess Is in Another Castle: Misogyny, Entitlement, and Nerds

How much longer are we going to be in denial that there’s a thing called “rape culture” and we ought to do something about it?


To paraphrase the great John Oliver, listen up, fellow self-pitying nerd boys—we are not the victims here. We are not the underdogs. We are not the ones who have our ownership over our bodies and our emotions stepped on constantly by other people’s entitlement. We’re not the ones where one out of six of us will have someone violently attempt to take control of our bodies in our lifetimes.

Er.. no. Leaders get replaced by bureaucrats, who go on to become the next generation of leaders - only with more experience, since he just saw how the enemy killed his leader. Every good leader was a bureaucrat once. He needs to be, to know how his subordinates think.
No one person is really important, especially to a globally distributed terrorist organization like Al-Qaeda. Imagine if an important executive of IBM were to die. How's that going to affect IBM at all? He'll just be replaced. If you think there's ever going to be a shortage for people willing to take risks in the name of their belief, there's a surprise waiting for you.
