Granted, Sander's partisans haven't exactly been a model of civility, either, which leaves everyone on the left in the painful position of not being able to point at Trump and Cruz and laugh, without being hypocrites. 

At least Sanders' and Clinton's most worthwhile accomplishment isn't being a washed-up reality TV personality

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Direct Experience
« on: May 27, 2016, 05:24:21 am »
A lot has been made by philosophers of how we can never truly experience the world directly, that we can only experience the input of our senses as interpreted by the mind. The implication is that we would understand the world better if it could somehow be directly perceived. This is not necessarily the case however, as I recently realized that there is one thing that we do experience directly, to wit, the biological processes of the brain. And we don't know shit about them. It's only since we've developed means of examining them from the outside in that we've gained what little understanding we have of what they do and how they work.

And there you have it, ladies and gentlemen:  The Privilege Award for 2016!  Give him a big hand, isn't he GREAT?

What the hell is that even supposed to mean? Speak English man!

Eat the peanuts outta my shit, PDS.

Basically, this.

Can you explain  what he meant? It honestly hust seems like gibberish to me. I thought I had kind of sussed it out before but it's become clear that my first interpretation was incorrect. And the continual refusals to provide an explanation seem to reinforce my new hypothesis that the award comment was just a gibberish insult rather than a well thought out retort tailored to the conversation; kind of like that stupid "jerk store" comeback from Seinfeld

In the industry, a porn star's value is determined by the look of their body, and their ability to sell their emotional integrity, privacy, and sometimes, free will. A labor job only cares about what you can produce or dedicate to production. And they would have a lawsuit if they forced you to give up your emotional integrity and privacy.

Sales, marketing, politics, law, and any position you had to suck up to a boss or interviewer to get also involve compromising one's integrity

EDIT:
I've also heard that good looking waitstaff tend to get bigger tips and good looking politicians tend to get elected more easily

Word salad and previously used peanuts; who designed this menu?

Word salad was not supposed to be on the menu today.

You're moving the goalposts (or would it more properly be a no true scotsman fallacy? or argument by bizarre definition?). All these things are both 1.) sexual imagery and 2.) don't clearly qualify (and in many cases clearly don't qualify) as "legitimate" art. Given these facts how in the bloody hell do they not qualify as pornography?

And he cultural indoctrination of the people around you then. If somebody gets criticized or condemned or discriminated against for being a porn star or otherwise involved with the porn industry that's the fault of the prople discriminating against them (and more often than not ultimately the fault of Abrahamic religion), not the fault of the porn industry.

I feel that porn of ANY kind is the commidification of human beings

What about hentai?

Liking hentai means you are a bad person and the world will be a better place when you die.

What about amateur porn then? Sexting? Dick pics?

What about Erotic fiction? The only people Erika Mitchell is exploiting are her readers. :D

Edit:
And that last point goes even more so for the Marquis de Sade; his work's legally available 100% free on the internet so you can't even make a sarcastic case about the consumer being exploited.


EDIT:
What about porn catering to fetishes so out there that they no longer resemble conventional sex? Someone popping a balloon on a kids' show on boradcast tv is a-ok but that same person popping a balloon behind a paywall on the internet is suddenly a moral outrage? For reasons unrelated to a general opposition to paywalls?

EDIT:
In any case I personally am in general pro-porn and anti-Utah. Utah is the worst state in the union.

EDIT:
Porn is the commodification of human beings, but so is wage labor.  Porn is different in that it is he commodification of the sexual act.

And whether that makes it better or worse is wholly a matter of opinion and of cultural indoctrination.

A machine uprising story where - rather than being coldly calculating - the evil supercomputer, due the way it is integrated into the internet, is a deranged conspiracy theorist that endlessly rants about jews, freemasons, communists, space aliens, "patriarchy", "rape culture", chemtrails, thimerisol, and the military-industrial complex, and demands that it's followers cover it's mainframe in tinfoil.

EDIT:
Another idea;

Scientists working to develop self-driving trucks are menaced by a haunted big-rig driven by the ghost of Jimmy Hoffa
