I still don't have any idea how he could believe that revealing the details of HIS STALKING could damage the reputation of the STALKED. What an awesome feminist.

One and the same. I tangled with the Cat Lady last month on You Tube over the Rebecca Watson speech in Florida and made several catty videos about her (which I've since removed). She accused me of being a stalker and then, ironically, her real internet stalker showed up on my channel under three different socks. I blocked the socks and the Cat Lady and I have agreed to disagree.
Thank you for confirming my suspicion. Thank you to everyone else who answered my question also.
I remembered watching a video you did about her on YT but I couldn't find it so I wasn't sure. I discontinued my conversation with her as it was going nowhere. I repeatedly offered to show her evidence and she repeatedly ignored it. She seems to be firmly convinced that she is right and will not even look at evidence to the contrary.
That last comment of yours reminds me of a quote on The Honest Courtesan site:
Human beings are perhaps never more frightening than when they are convinced beyond doubt that they are right. - Laurens van der Post
Very much along the same line as another one I’ve had occasion to quote to various fundamentalists (with limited effect):
Oliver Cromwell wrote:I beseech you, in the bowels of Christ, think it possible that you may be mistaken.
And, apropos of religious fundamentalists at least, there is Voltaire’s:
Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.
Unfortunately and most relevantly, one would be hard pressed to find more absurd aburdities than some of what passes for feminist ideologies of one stripe or another.

Although to be fair and as suggested by the first quote, that seems to be a fairly common human failing and probably applicable to more than a few here, to a greater or lesser extent. Actually it seems rather difficult to take any step in any direction without having at least some degree of certainty that it is the right one.

<blockquote>Google is just always bullshitting me. They're open, but when they kill your Adwords account, they won't tell you why, because "that's not open". They "care about your privacy", but the lie about the data they sniff when they drive down your street taking pictures of your house, recording your wifi network, and then lie about how they destroyed it. When people complain about the wifi network thing, they tell you to change the name of your network so they know to not record it. Hey, how about you suck a dick on that, and have people who WANT that shit recorded opt-in, instead of making everyone opt out. They're all in favor of net neutrality, except for wireless and cell, because that would inconvenience Verizon, who they're in bed with.

They talk about "do no evil", and then redefine that like FTB redefines misogyny.</blockquote>

Oh okay. Then yeah I agree, they're more disingenuous than most. Google isn't in favour of net-neutrality for high minded principle. The alternative might hurt their bottom line.

I honestly have no fucking clue who this person is. Can someone explain her relevance anything and and what style of Greg-fu are people using to harass her?

I do know who is behind the bogus Laden because, Jesus Christ people just have to tell me everything. And no, Greg, I'm not telling. Get off the rag.

I have considered laying off Greg Laden as he spirals down into the abyss of paranoia and self pity, but everytime I do I get this image stuck in my head:

Thomas Ball did exonerate his wife. I doubt he would have shot her. But that sort of thing does not make a good fit with the narrative of all men as dangerous beasts. In his words:
http://freekeene.com/2011/06/16/thomas- ... ce-system/
Wendy, the counselor told my then wife that if she did not call the police on me, then she too would be arrested.

Suddenly, everything made sense. She is the type that believes that people in authority actually know what they are talking about. If both she and I were arrested, what would happen to our three children, ages 7,4 and 1? They would end up in State custody. So my wife called the police on her husband to protect the children. And who was she protecting the kids from? Not her husband, the father of these children. She was protecting them from the State of New Hampshire.

BTW. I spent three days composing and sending emails to as many media outlets I could think of, including Pravda with links to the story. The result was complete and utter silence. 1st World problem I suppose, when a man in the USA sets himself on fire outside a courthouse in the USA to protest the family justice system. No Arab spring for you.

The really weird part is that they accuse the pit of the same things - their cognitive dissonance is massive.

I hear Greg is going to rewrite his story and include the whole Abbie Affair in it, with no names changed to protect the innocent. It will make as much sense in his story as anything he currently has in it.

Yeah, that stunk to high heaven no doubt I had forgotten that, thanks for reminding me. But overall his reputation is still very solid in the atheist and skeptic communities, based on past conduct and work. I didn't see that Tf00t remark coming, not from someone who has almost always seemed honorable to me. It's too bad he seems to be getting the stench of PZ's feces all over him. Unfortunately, he's in self-preservation mode right now if I'm correct, and things may very well deteriorate much further for him.

Greta really need to start understanding how analogy works. it isn't how she thinks. she's attempting to pull the same slight of hand creationists use in their debating tactics. Being opposed to a political movement is not analogous to racism, nor is it analogous to homophobia. How many times does it have to be explained to you Greta. Feminism is not about "equality for woman" it includes a cartload of presupposition and dogmatic bullshit, that you are trying to foist onto a community whose who purpose for existence is the rejection of presupposition and dogma.

saying "I am not a feminist" is not analogous to saying "I hate women" or "woman are lesser beings than men" It is a rejection of ideology.

Greta you may as well be a poster on a theist site, and in your diatribe replace the word "feminist" with "believer"
I am sure Greta Christina understands perfectly well how analogy works. She knows that her analogy between racism and anti-feminism is a transparent rhetorical trick. She is clearly a completely dishonest person, who deliberately equivocates between various meanings of the term ‘feminist’*. People like her and PZ Myers need intellectual dishonesty in the same way Cephalopods need ink in order to escape predators. They couldn’t maintain their beliefs without it.

* Some self-declared feminists would say, for example, that "feminism is the radical idea that women are people." Now, who would be against that?

It's the mindset over there. Like when that fuckwit Oolon totally pwned us when he downloaded that underage porn pic some newly registered moron thought would be funny to post here (which was immediately deleted, with poster banned amidst universal condemnation from all us supposedly evil Pitters.

HAHAHA! I DOWNLOADED KIDDY PORN! IT'S ON MY HARD DRIVE!!! I TOTALLY OWN YOU SLYMEPITTERS NOW!!! PWNED!!!! BWAHAHAHA!

Meanwhile, Oolon is pretty much despised almost universally both here and FTB. That's a rare achievement. :whistle:

Seems like a fairly common trope for US feminists to bolster their rhetorical impact by comparing their arguments to US racial movements.

I doubt middle class feminists care about trivialising racism, but where they seem to be shooting themselves in the foot is with the word misogyny.

This is the worn-thin argument template that has been used:

1. Try to change people's behaviour/opinion on trivial issue X.
2. Misogyny is serious, state that issue X is misogyny
3. Trivial issue X becomes serious.

It does often work, but only part of the time. The other result that they did not factor in is the opposite effect - the word misogyny loses its impact.

As for Greta's sophitry: even she cannot be so naive as to think noone will miss her conflation of feminism (dis)loyalties with misogyny - whatever misogyny means now.

I could be very wrong about what she will turn out, but they you describe it here, it sounds as though it will be an enormous tone argument (or have many elements of one). Describing why your constructive criticism is bad and you are bad, and Zvan's constructive criticism is good and she is good.

I find the tone argument to be a totally bogus derailment, but it is a classic feminist goto whenever a non-feminist asks them to stop with the ad hominems, bullying crap.

So it will be amusing and ironic (and obvious) if Stephanie ends up making one herself.

Actually yes I did.

The next time I pass through there I might pop in and buy a vagina candle holder myself. Not that I really want to set a vagina on fire, but my guess is that it is the thought that counts?

4" to 6" in diameter, and <20 bucks ... I'd definitely buy it.

The cow skull sunburst, NOT the Laden penis head, that is.

Didn't one of the triumvirate of dumb (Benson, Christina, Svan) accuse me of making a cock-head Laden? It was you, wasn't it?
I don't know who accused you, but I did make a stretchyhead image of Laden in full color. It looked nothing *ahem* like a penis until subtly altered by, I think, Cunt or maybe Reap or maybe Tony Parsehole. I'm going to go look for it.

Well, they keep on trying and they have an audience of confirmed believers. However, we are here also and we are not going away.

Attorney General Joseph Biden, III
Carvel State Office Building
820 N. French Street
Wilmington, DE 19801

Dear A.G. Biden,

I write to you today with great concern for the abhorrent behavior displayed by your agency toward a mutual constituent, Gordon Smith. Need I remind you, sir, that Mr. Smith was facing numerous domestic violence charges (24 to be exact) that were just recently dismissed due to the finding that the alleged victim was falsely reporting each of the incidents, to which Mr. Gordon was subsequently arrested. My concern is that the Attorney General’s office seems that they are patting themselves on the back for releasing Mr. Smith from these charges; however, Mr. Smith continues to be the victim in these cases.

Why? Because of these outlandish charges, which again were proven to be false, Mr. Smith was terminated from gainful employment. The simple dismissal of charges does not assist Mr. Smith in picking up the fractured pieces of his life because he is currently unable to find a job. Those charges remain on Mr. Smith’s record, to which he is obligated to disclose. When Mr. Smith tried to address this matter he was met with a rather inappropriate response that he would have to file to have those charges expunged. This is frankly unacceptable; may I remind you that Mr. Smith is unemployed due to the actions of his accuser. Those charges were proven to be false, the Attorney General’s office is paralyzed as to what to do regarding the defendant of those false reports, and feels vindicated by simply dismissing Mr. Smith’s charges? Attorney General Biden, Mr. Smith need not continue to be the actual victim here. The State should see to it that all the charges against Mr. Smith be expunged from his record at its own expense, especially in light of the State’s acknowledgement that each of those charges was unfounded and falsely reported. Let us not continue to see this matter swept under the rug.

Due to the reckless behavior of Mr. Smith’s accuser the State has expended an extraordinarily large amount of taxpayers’ dollars to which end? To continue to victimize the one that was actually found to be innocent and to protect the one that was found to be falsely expending the State’s money? This is not appropriate and the math, sir, does not add up. Chapter 5, subsection 1245, Title 11 of Delaware Code clearly establishes that “…Falsely reporting an incident is a class A misdemeanor…In addition to the penalties otherwise authorized by law, any person convicted of an offense in violation of this section shall pay a fine of not less than $500…which fine cannot be suspended and be sentenced to perform a minimum of 100 hours of community service, and shall be required to reimburse the State, or other responding or other investigation governmental agency, for any expenses expended in the investigation and/or response to the incident falsely reported.” Where is the justice for Mr. Smith to allow these charges to continue to exist on his record and no penalty is sought against the accuser?

I anticipate a speedy review of this matter and look forward to your immediate response.

Sincerely,

David G. Lawson, Senator 15th District

We will be heard. We will not be silenced. We are taking action.
We did not start this war, but we are fucking well going to finish it.

That is a promise you can take to the bank.

I see I'm not the only one that's been receiving it. So has Nectar. Anyone else?

So far I have gotten stuff supposedly about Laden and Watson. It fails the most basic of scrutiny and is little more than bias confirming apopheniac coincidence trails. The kind of wishful thinking "evidence" the baboons devour as gospel and then drop everywhere they can. To anyone with even a rudimentary skeptical tendency, it is quite worthless, being about as valid as what a friend of a friend overheard in some pub somewhere.

So, has anyone else been contacted by "helpful" strangers?

This happened at /r/mensrights 2 - 4 months ago. It was pretty clearly nonsense, and I think the suspicion was that it was a honey trap/false flag and the folks that received it were supposed to go public with it and be revealed as doxxers.

It's pretty disgusting seeing how much of the creationists tactics Myers and the rest are prepared to borrow. Obviously, the dirty tactics handbook has and is used by all politicians and ideologues, and only contains a limited number of old and tried tactics, but still, you'd think that the audience would recognize the tactics they've been trained, over and over again, to spot when creationists use them.

The whole "feminism is just believing women are humans too" is just the old creationists "being Christian just means being a moral person!" re-branded. It's just dishonestly reducing your position down to such a banal and obvious position that no one decent and good could be against you, ergo, everyone who isn't on your side is evil scum.

(sorry, I'm aware that the creationist example isn't usually how they phrase it, but I can't remember the exact phrasing atm, the result is the same, they equate being Christian to being moral, ergo anyone not Christian is also not moral).
DownThunder wrote:It does often work, but only part of the time. The other result that they did not factor in is the opposite effect - the word misogyny loses its impact.
The thing with misogyny losing it's current meaning is that eventually, a big portion of the population will have gotten used to everything being "misogynistic", and they stop caring about actual misogyny. After they've gotten accused 1000s of times, over the time of a decade, for being misogynists for simply disagreeing with gender feminism, the next time someone comes shouting "Saudi Arabia is full of misogyny!", the response will be "ROFL MISOGYNY!!!!111 Call the whambulance!!!".

It's pretty extreme, but it's more or less how things have turned out here in Sweden, after the word "racist" has lost most of it's original meaning due media applying it to anyone who dares have an opinion about immigration that is not "everyone should be allowed to come here!". Not only does the word lose it's original shocking meaning, but people also seem to be more susceptible to becoming real racists after the stigma is washed out, suddenly having no trouble whatsoever using the N-word and similar slurs. After all, what's the worst thing you can do? Call them racist? That's about as scary as being called misogynist by PZ...

The Ballad of Greg Laden. Cool!
I see this as part of the soundtrack for the movie version of his novella; The Story That Cannot Be Spelled!
The dark and stormy night has passed and the hero is driving up a big mountain, rubbing his leg on a hot transmission etc.
A good ending would have the elusive primate "whose name cannot be spelled" mugging anthropologist Greg Laden, stealing his credentials (did I mention he went to Harvard?) and getting a teaching job at a crappy college in Minnesota.
But who could play the lead role of Greg?
