Grand Theft Auto V and Misogyny 3

Grand Theft Auto V and Misogyny

By now I’m sure you’ve heard the complaints coming from the usual quarters: GTA V contains “disturbing” attitudes towards women.  It more-or-less started with a GameSpot Transexual praising the game, aside from this one “issue,” and since then it keeps popping up all over. Quite frankly, I’m sick of it. And yet, GTA V is a game that does merit conversation; it’s a game that contains theft, murder, and torture, over and above the alleged misogyny – surely this is worthy of discussion; by what grounds to we deliver a resounding “Shut your fool mouth, woman!” to the feminists that...

“Life During Peacetime” and “Boris the Shitting Buffalo”

Life During Peacetime by Matt Forney Let me tell you about good writing. Good writing is about a lot of things: honesty, first and foremost.  It needs to be so brutally, scathingly honest that it induces symptoms of narcissism in the author.  This is why authors drink: it’s the only thing that kills the shame of exposing your inner core.  Next, it needs to be perceptive: not just of the self, but of those other characters who share in the story.  You need to truly understand and empathize with humanity if you’re going to be a good writer.  And finally...

Calling Liberals Racist 8

Calling Liberals Racist

As I’m sure you’re all aware, “racist” is a meaningless word; the closest it comes to having any semantic content is John Ringo’s “Bad dog!  No biscuit!” It’s an empty set of boo-lights meant to censure those on the right.  Any of the following can get you called racist: Noticing biological/behavioural differences between the races Noticing cultural differences between non-White groups (cultural differences between Whites don’t count) Noticing different groups Advocating policies based upon race which don’t involve free-money or preferential treatment Advocating polices which ignore race, “free-market economics” style Disagreeing with a black person (or other minority aside from...

Global Warming: A Degenerate Science for a Degenerate Age 6

Global Warming: A Degenerate Science for a Degenerate Age

Aaron Clarey wrote an excellent post on the facility of present-day political argument, about how the – generally “Leftist” or “Progressive” arguments (though there are a few Conservative arguments in there as well) – are a foot deep, and a mild wide; easy to disprove, but infinite in their variety.  Any given one can be torn apart in five-minutes, but for each Hydra head you lop-off, two more show up in its place. I was thinking about global warming.  Not from a scientific or political perspective, but a psychological one.  Namely, “How dumb are these people not to see it...

Do Not Adjust Your Set 15

Do Not Adjust Your Set

Peter Gibbons: So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that’s on the worst day of my life. ~Office Space Go to work.  Be there by eight.  Your contribution to the economy will be intangible, at best; your accomplishments are measured by spreadsheets, not products.  Take your fifteen minute breaks, legislated.  Go down to the food court for lunch, sterilized.  Fear the sexual harassment complaint; tape your...

Known Unknowns, and Unknown Unknowns 11

Known Unknowns, and Unknown Unknowns

I’m hesitant to write about the Mark Minter situation; this whole thing is taking on shades of celebrity/hero worship, and as a general rule I try not to target individuals with my writing.  I’ll target their arguments, certainly, and I’ll attack groups of people, whether they be ideologues or mentalities, but focusing the eternal laser-light of the Internet on an individual is a cowardly bullying tactic, employed by the anonymous. And yet, I recently wrote a scathing take-down of Kezia Willingham; what makes this the exception that proves the rule? Simple: she chose to make her private life the argument...
