The PD is not just a white thing though... Purple Eris is a Turk and she's embraced Discordianism, so have some of her friends. Over at MLA, there are people from a number of countries... or at least there were back in the day when it was really active. Discordianism is far larger than this forum... and this forum is good for a specific kind of Discordian. From my experience its not the kind of Discordians that tend to pop up in countries outside of the US (angry, middle class, privileged and itching for someone to knock the apple chip off of their shoulder). If we want diversity, we have to accept diversity. We tend to accept variety more easily than diversity, IMO. That is, small variations from the core are fine... but someone who decides that Eris is their goddess... or that fnords are really funny or that dada is their thing.... this isn't the kind of place they'll find a welcome.
Somewhere in his post I think he is addressing some valid points, but he manages to completely shoot them in the foot with the following:
1. He uses PurpleEris as an example of some kind of point about nonwhites embracing Discordianism. Now, there are several nonwhites on this forum, but PurpleEris is not one of them. We've all seen her pics. If she's not "white", racially speaking, just because she's Turkish, then neither is 000, nor teh whole troupe of Britspags, and if we're going to redefine "white" to mean "non-American", then this whole conversation may as well be scrapped because potato the yellow fandangle.
Then on top of that was his completely ass-grabbed premise that because black people are more likely to be Baptist, therefore they are less likely than white people to rebel against their upbringings, and somehow also those that do are less likely to think for themselves.
WTF Ratatosk, just WTF. On both points.
