The difference, Steers, is that-- unlike you & the Atlantic link you offered-- I never defended that magnet nonsense in the first place.
Pray tell, where exactly did I and the Atlantic article actually "defend that magnet nonsense"? I'll wait ... :roll:
No. That's not what I was asserting. My point was that you associated yourself with the Atlantic link, by posting it & citing it as authoritative.
Which is very different-- from the complete lack of any connection between that magnet nonsense & me. You attempted to associate me with something which has NOTHING to do with me. You've fabricated a hoax, and that's not a legitimate way to argue.
too many on the right - yourself included - are far too quick to throw stones at sources like Britannica?
Nope. I did no such thing. I merely chuckled that your Atlantic link touted Britannica... after the many times over the years... when you had posted a link comparing Britanicca unfavorably to Wikipedia. The humor in that juxtaposition is perfectly simple & clear.
Might help if you were a bit more vocal in supporting that position when it's being disputed by people like Hunny Bunny, Matt, and Fafnir
Yeah. It would fucking help your crusade if others joined you. But I tried to give you your due... and your response was to keep sniping at me like an opponent/ rather than check to see if I was on your side.
It was late and I didn't have time to check back and see your exact phrasing. Partly why I put in the "you all" to cast my net a little wider.
You don't distinguish between allies & opponents: Ready. FIRE! Aim. So, go right-ahead & keep-counting me as foe. I want nothing to do with you-- you're socially-dysfunctional. You're a weird kid who the other kids avoid/ and anyone who offers a break to the outcast/ soon finds-out those other kids had the right idea.
I agreed with your point about the 'standard biological definition' of the sexes. But I also applaud Fafnir for catching you-- conceding the immense real-world limit on your stupid definition-- when you referred to Hunny Bunny & other "women"... using the word "woman" just-like a normal real-world human does. <--That's the position where I dwell.
Don't waste your time & mine trying to drag me over to your Gender Studies department. Go fight your battle against the actual Feminazi usurpers to your throne.
You're so ready to throw stones at .... the author of that Atlantic article that you're unable, or unwilling, to see where they have a point or two
Nope. You're just throwing another allegation at me, with no evidence, to see if it will stick.
In reality-- I have a long, intimate affinity for the author of that Atlantic article. He was a co-founder of SPY magazine. And, in the late 1980's, before I ever set foot in NYC, I was smitten with SPY. SPY was written from the point of view of a snarky, jaded, hip tastemaker-- privy to all the 'Inside Dope' about NYC. I read SPY the way Bart Simpson & Milhouse read MAD Magazine... in a 1996 episode:
Bart: “My God, the MAD Magazine Special Edition! They only put out 16 of these a year.”
Milhouse: “Boy, they’re really socking it to that Spiro Agnew guy. He must work there or something.”
When, way back in the '80's, SPY declared Donald Trump to be a 'short-fingered vulgarian' a teenage version of me trusted that assessment & added it to my own repertoire of opinions. I was a kid trying to prepare myself-- to oneday become an NYC sophisticate. (Similar Jay Gatsby inventing himself!)
So that's where my affinities were-- back when Trump first won the 2016 GOP primary. At that time-- the other co-founder of SPY-- Graydon Carter-- re-visited his decades as a leading critic of the short fingered vulgarian-- continuing to savage Trump-- and, at that time, my bias was in-favor of Carter.
You can't read minds, Steers. Your guesses are flat-out wrong.
Behold!, as time unfolds & new information emerges... I'm quite capable of adjusting my opinion & admit when I was wrong.
I'm quite-unlike the slurs you fire off against me & everyone-else, Steers.
Friendly fire, collateral damage, no trigger discipline, intentional trollish sabotage, good-faith incompetence? I don't care what your motives are. You just suck.
