Interesting. I read through the thread and couldn't see who called McEwan out for "playing into racist tropes". Did she just decide to make the change herself but not memory hole it? I've seen plenty of posts get memory holed there before so why not this one if no one called her on it? False humility maybe? She usually goes all Queen of Hearts when criticized about something. I've only ever seen her relent once, and that was when her a bunch of her disciples surprisingly took her to task for criticizing Tina Fey over not displaying the scar on her face. For those who don't know, Fey was attacked by a random psycho when she was a child and has a prominent scar on her face. Fey is pretty nonchalant about it herself but knows that it upsets her parents. Well according to McEwan, Fey isn't being the proper victim and should be showing the damn thing off at every opportunity. I was actually surprised to see McEwan begrudgingly accept that she might be wrong about that.
At the bottom of the OP - not in the comments. She was called out on Twitter:

That explains it. A minority woman made the complaint. McEwan has to accept it as valid or show that she doesn't play by her own rules.

Oh well, maybe his girlfriend will get bored cutting off her own body parts and decide to go after a few of his. Maybe start with that absurd do-rag bonded to his skull.

Because ... harassment? WAAAAAHHHH!!!11!!

Also, following talks from home pretty much means you're a non-attendee.

although to be fair, pointing out that Vacula has an attention whore streak is not exactly incorrect. Yes, we get it, they are not consistent with the enforcement of their policy. However, other than looking like "that guy", exactly what is your twitter thing accomplishing? It's not even funny.

And there's a bit more after that.


So calling a professional woman good-looking is "lascivious" and "misogynistic," except that it's not lascivious if a black man is doing it, and you can't say that a woman "chided" someone, because head-asplodey. Fuck all of these morons.

I like to openly ridicule these conference policies, express skepticism concerning them, and put arguments forth against the nonsense that is going on in the atheist/skeptic communities and at conferences. Interacting with the conference hashtag and attendees is a great opportunity for that. I find this mode of skepticism to be effective and worth my time. The hypocrisy, too, is just glorious. It's not all about being funny, but some laughs may come in the process. Engagement with the #ftbullies, as you knwo, often yields some unintentional glorious results. Either way, I love the debate.

the FTBullies are ridiculous, but I don't have a problem with conferences having policies as long as they're not draconian. I couldn't imagine a policy written by Zvan even being implementable. Had Adria Richards followed Pycon's policy, 2 people would likely still have their jobs.

They certainly love their shibboleths. Their conferences sound like mutual masturbation and back-patting sessions: same people, same in-jokes and weird rules, free to express their hypocrisies and bigotry.

This "lived experience" thing is getting so far out of hand it's ridiculous. It's gone from William Lane Craig's "witness of the holy spirit" to some batshit loon screaming "I FEEL the POWAH of the LAWD!!!" while waving snakes around and pretending to have a seizure.

Is there this much butthurt and flouncing over "gendered" words for radfem speakers of languages that have nouns with gender?

Or is this one of the great joys of the Anglophone world? "My native language doesn't have gendered nouns, so I'm going to randomly assign gender to verbs and nouns in order to maximize outrage."

OMG. "Blind spot" comes from the focal lack of vision at the spot where the optic nerve meets the retina. "Tone deaf" comes from music, "relatively insensitive to differences in musical pitch". Just because the phrases contain the words "blind" and "deaf" doesn't make them ableist, IMO.

This kind of obsessive anxiety about a word possibly offending stunts and cripples the use of language.

I used to read her blog a while ago. She writes deconstructions and analysis of books, which I found very interesting. She wrote a lot about Twilight and the Chronicles of Narnia, and I enjoyed reading her ideas, but over time it became clear that she sees everything through the feminism lens, and that gets really old after a while.

I just checked her blog and had to scroll by 4 posts about feminism (including one about Landsburg and one about Dawkins) to find a post about a Twilight chapter. It seems the focus of her blog has shifted.

Spanish has gendered nouns, and I've never seen any SJW or radfem using that particular line of thought. We do have our own problems with gender ideologies, but gendered words are not among them.

There was a certain attempt recently to use both words when referring to people, things like "medicos and medicas" (male doctors and female doctors) or "niños y niñas" (boys and girls), but it didn't gain much traction.

The only thing they got was people to start sharing a Facebook status that explains that in Spanish the male-gendered noun covers both genders, so the double word use was unnecessary. It had a disclaimer saying it didn't mean any disrespect towards women, just the way the language works. That post got both men AND women to say "heh, cool, thanks for posting that, it's good to learn stuff" and that was the end of it.

Maybe being used to a gendered language make people less likely to worry about which gender a word has? After all, both genders get their share of good and bad words (both war and peace are female nouns, while cancer and love are both male nouns).

For a change, Ophelia Benson comes across as a perfectly reasonable individual.
Still arguing about Amina and the protests and white-imperialist-Orientalist feminism. On Twitter for one.
this is where an intersectional approach is so vital. Attempting to impose white western “feminism” w/o listening to the very ppl they’re trying to “liberate” = doomed & counterproductive enterprise.
Sigh. “White western feminism” as opposed to the brown eastern kind which is just fine with arresting and whipping or stoning a woman who takes a picture of herself with her shirt off.

Don’t do that. Don’t pretend there’s “white western” feminism or human rights or liberalism as opposed to brown eastern ones. Human rights are universal; that is the whole point. The whole point is to make them exceptionless, because if we don’t we’re right back where we started – with “we have to kill all the Jews/Tutsis/Bosnian Muslims/gays/apostates/Hindus/whatever it is this weeks.”
Indeed, human rights are universal. Isn’t it paradoxical that the SJ warriors are often among the first to forget this? They often get so hopelessly lost in the intricacies of their privilege calculus that they end up defending oppressors rather than the oppressed.

We will never be able to see what exactly you deem a celebration of biodiversity, its such a pity, such a sh...

But wait!

Do not fret!

The wayback machine has the page saved in its entirety!

(You're looking a little pale there PZ, as if the blood has suddenly drained out of your body...why is that?)

Let's peruse this glorious "celebration of biodiversity" to see what we find, shall we?


(Watch out - VERY NSFW!)

http://web.archive.org/web/200707160708 ... chive.html

Peezus Christ!

It's the October 15th post 'Tentacles of Desir' in case you are interested.

Perhaps, PZ, you might like to explain exactly what is happening in picture 2 -

You know, the one that is titled..."hentai tentacle rape"

It's unpixelated on the original site.

http://i.imgur.com/gx5VeQQ.jpg

Yes, that one has certainly got "tentacles everywhere"

It's the sort of picture that got one of our members promptly banned from the slymepit.

You know, I don't really care that tentacle rape porn is PZs 'thing'.
I presume that the models photographed in the rest of the pictures on that site are consenting adults.

It's the fucking hypocrisy that I can't stand.
The post shown is from his scienceblogs Pharyngula from before his PC feminist approved phase.

He hasn't apologized for his words in this post and I hardly think that it is in keeping with his current image (praising as a "celebration of biodiversity", a cartoon of a very young girl getting raped is not exactly in keeping with 'lifelong feminist' credentials)

Does he seriously think we are not able to remember when he wasn't wearing the mask of feminist piety?

Sorry PZ, the mask slipped again.

Ok, wow. I seriously need to follow McEwan more, for the lulz. Here's Obama's "misogynist" quote:
You have to be careful to, first of all, say she is brilliant and she is dedicated and she is tough, and she is exactly what you'd want in anybody who is administering the law, and making sure that everybody is getting a fair shake. She also happens to be, by far, the best looking attorney general in the country. It's true! C'mon.
Those cunts really are a step up even from the other femtheists.

Fuckin hell Strawkins - good find there. Course, Peez would probably argue that the post was from a long time ago, before he was 'properly' feminist.

Even though he's been a feminist since he was 15. Apparently.

What "debate"? To be blunt, you seem to have no ability to know when to stop. The first few points about how they were ignoring their own policy were decent, hell, PZ was pissed off enough. But now? Really? You just can't seem to stop, and it really does look like you want attention more than anything.

It's a bit like when the Catholic Church tries to convince everyone that nobody knew that raping altar boys was wrong twenty years ago.

In the same way, before Elevatorgate feminists had no problem with cartoons of young girls getting raped!

It's only recently that they've realized this is bad!

Overly attached girlfriend. Shaming girls for expressing their feelings and commitment in relationships since 2012.
WTF!
She's meant to be portraying a crazed stalker!
How come I get the feeling that Leftsidepositive would make overly attached girlfriend seem sane, meek and demure by comparison.

Even though he's been a feminist since he was 15. Apparently.
Haha, I was gonna say! Since he was 15. Hahaha!

I know it's a pointless stat, but considering his article begging for upvotes... there's this Swedish proverb, "The only true joy is schadenfreude" .
I took his advice and went to watch the video, I'm still pissed off. "see if you can find anything in it that honestly deserves a downvote"?? I started making a list but there were too many. Atheists should be working to improve their image, like Coca-Cola? Coca-Cola is a corporation, you dipshit! (but if we go with that analogy, can we say that Atheism Plus is like New Coke?)

It's funny that when he says "the wider community" it sounds like "the whiter community"

Sorry mate. I can't help you there.
I do know that if somebody has the energy and desire to be pissed off by "grumpy cat" then life must be pretty fucking sweet. Privileged even.

Don't worry PZ.
I'm here to help you wage war on the criminals that promote tentacle rape porn.
Anyone who would do such a thing is clearly a despicable misogynist who shouldnt be allowed near women - for safety reasons.

Wait!

I think I see one now!

Let's peruse this glorious "celebration of biodiversity" to see what we find, shall we?

Peezus Christ!

It's the October 15th post 'Tentacles of Desir' in case you are interested.

Perhaps, PZ, you might like to explain exactly what is happening in picture 2 -

You know, the one that is titled..."hentai tentacle rape"

It's unpixelated on the original site.

http://i.imgur.com/gx5VeQQ.jpg

Yes, that one has certainly got "tentacles everywhere"

It's the sort of picture that got one of our members promptly banned from the slymepit.

You know, I don't really care that tentacle rape porn is PZs 'thing'.
I presume that the models photographed in the rest of the pictures on that site are consenting adults.

It's the fucking hypocrisy that I can't stand.
The post shown is from his scienceblogs Pharyngula from before his PC feminist approved phase.

He hasn't apologized for his words in this post and I hardly think that it is in keeping with his current image (praising as a "celebration of biodiversity", a cartoon of a very young girl getting raped is not exactly in keeping with 'lifelong feminist' credentials)

Does he seriously think we are not able to remember when he wasn't wearing the mask of feminist piety?

Sorry PZ, the mask slipped again.

Ha!
I just realized the hair color of the hentai rape girl!

This explains everything!

Carrier-Bag would have to go a looooooong fucking way to be more pathetic that he's being right now. He is practically begging for upvotes on a 40 minute long video. He'll be offering blowjobs next.
Carrier...... YOU ARE FLOGGING A DEAD HORSE. Pack it in.

Indeed. There's been a lot of nourishing Schadenfreude today and I think Strawkins find has been the tastiest of all. *omnomnom*

Strangely, the clueless motherfucker hasn't managed to bring his intellectual artillery to bear on the idea that begging for YT upvotes is a sure way to bring out the troll in people.

Unless Carrier's got such a hard-on for himself that he honestly believed the trolls would be swayed by the profundity and vigor of his wonderful arguments.

Percentage wrote:Ok, wow. I seriously need to follow McEwan more, for the lulz. Here's Obama's "misogynist" quote:
You have to be careful to, first of all, say she is brilliant and she is dedicated and she is tough, and she is exactly what you'd want in anybody who is administering the law, and making sure that everybody is getting a fair shake. She also happens to be, by far, the best looking attorney general in the country. It's true! C'mon.
Those cunts really are a step up even from the other femtheists.
Obama was apparently trying to be good, in praising Harris in ways relevant to her performance as an attorney general, but IMO he was indeed tone deaf, in commenting on her looks and also in that awkwardly self-aware opening "you have to be careful to, first of all, say she is...". Looks aren't a criterion for the job, "best looking" is in the eye of the beholder, and - most of all - looks are a basis on which men only rarely get (explicitly, publicly) judged compared with how often it happens for women.

On the other hand, they're friends, and that may give him a comfort in commenting on personal characteristics and/or joshing with her that slipped out in what he said publicly about her and came across wrong. I find it hard to imagine him commenting on the looks of a woman with whom he had a purely professional relationship.

Makes me wonder whether he has ever actually read the A+ forums. Take everyone who has been banned there for ridiculous reasons plus the lurkers who witnessed it and you've got 900 downvotes right there.
