Techmology and Scientism / Re: Oh FUCK ME this is amazing beyond amazing.

The book that was stolen out of my car a few weeks ago, that I can't seem to replace no matter how hard I try, talks about exactly that.

Sigh.

I have 12 copies of MSY1 left, but I highly doubt the story will ever be finished.

So, if anyone's in the market for 1/6th of a graphic novel story, let me know.

 :cry: It sure would be great if you could ever find an artist who didn't completely flake out on you or take the money and run, Roger. That was such a great series.

Did Babs seriously think that TWJ was hexing him?

REALLY?  :lulz:

I know I'm heading towards the Technocratic heresy, but motherfucker -- I want to feel that my elected leaders are smarter than me.

BURN THE WITCH!

We're now writing the mythology he referenced...  that's kind of awesome.

I suspect I'm just being slow, but can you elaborate on this?

Just that current-day Discordians are producing literature, using new ideas, that happen to dovetail into older literature (in this case RAW's novels) so well that people who are now discovering it are assuming that it's material that previous writers were drawing from.

I lay the razor down on the edge of the sink next to the hairbrush full of a matted tangle of red hair, and turned to the bathroom door which was, of course, not his bathroom door. He left eight months ago and everything still reminds me of him, every breath, every fallen leaf, every hipster asshole who hits on me at the bars I go to in an attempt to make myself forget, distract me, find a replacement that can never be found. It’s been weeks since I last had a proper meal and my ribs and cheekbones stand out raw and sharp as knives. I know that there’s a fierceness and a sadness about me now that draws only the crazy ones, only the ones who hope that somehow I am either strong enough to lead them or weak enough to be taken advantage of. I am the crazy mommy that the damaged little boys flock to, trying to repair their own old wounds. But I don’t have any healing in me, and what once would have been maternal sympathy is now reduced to nothing more than tolerant contempt, except for when it’s not tolerant and my revulsion slips through and scalds them.

I look like an easy mark, and I know it. Freckled and sullen-eyed, at five foot three I look more like a sulky girl than a forty-year-old mother, especially in the dim light of the bar. And so they approach me, drunk and hopeful, and try their smoothest moves to try to impress me while I barely conceal my scorn and eyeball them with a starvation they mistake for sexual. The returning philosophy student who tried to wow me with his scanty reading list… he was easy. He hardly put up a struggle. After I lured him on an impromptu midnight hike it was no effort at all to “trip” into the ravine and then knock his head on a rock and drown him in the stream when he came down to rescue me. I bled him out into the water with a single quick flick of my Benchmade pocketknife (buy local!), carved out a section of rump meat which went into the Ziploc bag I carried in my purse, and dragged his body up into the underbrush, where his bones would be scattered by coyotes and bears.

No doubt in a couple of weeks I’ll start seeing his face on homemade “missing” posters around town. If, by then, I even remember it.

Its because of taxes benefits and maternity leave. And needing to breastfeed wherever you go. If it wasnt for that glass ceiling youd all take over and then youd make us all slaves.

If you recall, that was the warning at the end of the story. "and now they're out for better versions of us"

Which is basically, watch out, if you don't keep them down they'll take over.

Not just better... better-looking. Because of course, lacking depth, it's not like women actually form profound emotional connections with the men we love that go far beyond appearance.

Its your fault youre not rich nigel.

Its also somehow your fault that im not rich.

Yep. Bakes a lot of sense.

Damn women minorities, dragging everyone down. :cry:

Yeah- its the sort of shit when people are like "what about white peoples rights"

chill out bubba were already more equal than others. Making everyone equal equal doesnt make us less equal.

The privileged-whoever they may be in  a particular situation- always have to find a way to bitch about their alleged problems. It would be funny if so many people didnt buy into that. If theyre in a fucking trailer its not because some black people have houses. And anyway its their own fault for having that trailer right? Arent they always saying that occupiers should get jobs? Until its time for them to get jobs in then its all about the mexicans and affirmative action again.

DRIVES ME FUCKING CRAZY.

On another note, I just told off a butthurt male in a facebook thread who was harrassing a female scientist friend of mine expressing her displeasure at this shitty story. I basically told him to shut up and listen, let her talk about what's bothering her instead of treating her offense as, well, "hysterical" in the classical sense that word was used to refer to women getting upset about their mistreatment.

I am sick and tired of "but look, men are treated badly too!" As far as I can tell, men weren't treated as a whole as second class citizens barely higher than slaves for most of human history.

Yeah, that's a line I have no patience for. It's also a sort of strawman variation on the Dawkins Fallacy... I'm sure there's already a term for it; the implicit argument that being AGAINST the oppression of one sex or race means you are FOR the oppression of another. "Why are women complaining when men have it bad too?" is a variation, and also my (un)favorite variation, which goes something like "That joke wasn't just making fun of blacks and Jews, it made fun of the white guy too" or in this case "but the author was poking fun at himself too because the male characters were also portrayed as being boring, bumbling, and incompetent".

Except they weren't. They were still portrayed as being the "smart" ones, in a world where women were unwittingly conferred their only advantage through an unexplained fluke of nature which they weren't even capable of recognizing. It's actually incredibly analogous to the argument that women are conferred a natural advantage simply due to having vaginas and being desired by men, so therefore men HAVE to keep them down in order to retain any bargaining power. It doesn't actually make any rational sense, in any way, but it's appalling how many men I have heard argue that men oppress and control women because they feel powerless against the face of their natural sexual desirability.
