Re: Free Speech

Cloudflare seems to suggest that there can exist a more constructive and "fair" (whatever that means) way than just boycotting each other. maybe this crazy idea that humans can coordinate without government force isn't that whacky?

Re: Political correctness run amok

brute believes 7Wannabe5's point is that all human males are thugs. so it's probably more sexist than racist.

Re: Political correctness run amok

People anglicizing their names to fit in better or to improve job prospects has always been pretty common in the US regardless of their ethnic group. It's not strictly tied to race. I've always wondered if people do it in other countries. DD has a Chinese name she uses when she's in China. very com...

cream, heavy cream, whipping cream.. as long as it's 30-40% fat. for reference, brute does not have a 6 pack. he also does not measure ketones. he did for a while, but it got boring real quick. while brute approves of the taste of cocoa whipped cream, and it is ketogenic, cocoa is full of fiber. in ...

Re: Entering Ketosis

Finally made it out of heavy whipping cream (no place had heavy cream). isn't that the same thing? I hadn't planned on the subject of calories coming up. Maybe I'll bring 800k kcal worth for good measure. 400 each isn't a bad meal. Aren't you one of those who believes hormones>calories for body com...

Re: Internet Use

brute likes to differentiate between devices. if he's planning on reading a physical book uninterrupted for a while, he'll go to a place far, far, from a computer as to not be distracted. then it's relatively easy.

Re: Political correctness run amok

The problem in our society is that nobody is doing "woman's work" anymore, because everybody wants to be elite and independent. or, because if human males are around children, they're considered pedophiles. even their own children. brute knows human males that have told him they will not be alone i...

Re: White supremacy run amok

Again, you just have to be no further right than Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Spartan_Warrior previously defined "right" and "left" purely in economic terms. thus it would be 100% orthogonal to race and white supremacy, and therefore have nothing to do with this. does Spartan_Warrior see how his vagu...

I wonder how many of the 50 states could, on paper, support themselves. I mean everything: food, energy, finances, a positive import/export balance, etc., not just tax flow.
probably not too many, but neither could most small countries. they could (and should) still trade, have division of labor..

brute doesn't think that PC makes The Deplorables into actual nazis or klansmen. at least not very many. but it can move the Overton window (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overton_window), and shift averages in more vaguely defined groups, e.g. alt-right. there was a long discussion about what the al...

that seems a bit like a false dichotomy. brute will try to back up a bit: 1)brute agrees that it's mostly not the fault of systemic oppression that young pepes are sad 2)brute does believe that blanket-targeting and blaming white males will lead these sad pepes to seek refuge in white identity etc. ...

Re: Political correctness run amok

Bit of an over-simplification, but I would say that much of the frustration (or sense of persecution) is due to finding themselves in a position of "responsibility without authority." wow, this is a great way of thinking about the issue. tbh, brute hadn't really thought about the whole "hurt feelin...

brute isn't sure that southern plantation culture classifies as xenophobic. reportedly, tons of slave owners had sex, affairs, and even children black slaves. black slaves worked in the household and watched children. that doesn't strike brute as particularly fearful (phobic) behavior towards blacks...

Re: Choo choo - all aboard the Trump Train

Those who grew up in a monoculture end up with the implicit bias that all the SJW types are screaming about. that study ...
