Energy, Facts, and Friends: Care to debate abortion? factori0 kiwianaroha prochoice-or-gtfo motherbychoice Nah Mood This reminds me of a party I went to last year. I was standing with some friends, chatting, and someone said something that indirectly implied that sexism exists. Some trivial recounting of the basic facts of daily life for most women. Something so mild, so uncontroversial, so mundane that I don't even remember what it was Suddenly, this man standing on the outskirts of our conversational circle piped up with "actually, I think men are more discriminated against than women these days." All conversation died l turned to look at him and he had this smug, insufferable grin on his face relishing this moment, expecting us to waste our time and energy refuting this ridiculous thing he had just said The Devil's Advocate was among us And, in my mind, I saw the next 15+ minutes playing out. The parade of facts and statistics in a vain attempt to defend ourselves, our gender, and to prove that misogyny is real. The glib, snide denials from some shithead who is getting off on our pain and frustration. The Gish Gallop of bullshit that would take a whole evening to properly dismantle. It was depressing and overwhelming. I hated it. I had to kill it before it began So looked him dead in the eye and I said "OK," shrugged, and just walked away Nothing I have ever said to another human being has ever been so crushing As I walked away, I watched the smug grin vanish and confusion and anxiety set in. The rest of the group turned their backs to him and carried on as if he had never spoken - as if he was invisible. He was still staring at me when walked over to another friend and told her what he had said. I pointed him out for her and made direct eye contact with him while we both laughed tl;dr: Don't feed the troll. Let it perish, cold and hungry, in the wasteland of your indifference. It is weak and you are strong. Live your best life Trolls dont deserve your attention

Bad, Birthday, and cnn.com: CNN CNN @CNN "What I say I'm gonna do, l'm gonna do to the best of my capabilities," says Walter Carr on why he walked 20 miles to work after his car broke down: "I just wanted to show to my company that I am dedicated just like I said in my interview" cnn.it/2zOYOdS Birmingham, Alabama 9:51 AM CT Via Skype Chattanooga, Tennessee 10:51 AM ET GOING THE EXTRA MILE MAN WALKS 20 MILES TO WORK RECEIVES CEO'S PERSONAL CAR AS A GIFT NN DOW 101.74 NEWSROOM 258 views From CNN Newsroom 10:20 AM 19 Jul 18 dagwolf: killagouge: topsydead: pregnantseinfeld: kittycatdeathtrap: pregnantseinfeld: dagwolf: Vomitous can we please stop pretending this shit is good?!!?! What the fuck!!!!! I don’t understand why this is a bad thing?? whats sold as inspirational here is somebody whose fear of being fired and having their source of food and shelter yanked away from them forced them to push themselves to unhealthy lengths Exactly!!! We’re being told “be like this guy, he puts his company above his physical safety”. It’s a shaming tactic against people who don’t prioritize their employers. He was probably stressed the fuck out and needed serious recuperation after that feat, but they’re treating it like he sent the boss a birthday card. I mean, he got a car out of it. He chose the job knowing how far away it was. This should be more of a condemnation of the lack of good public transportation in the south. This isn’t unique to Alabama, the only reason it’s in the news is because the owner is a decent human being. I’ve been citing the preamble to the IWW constitution a lot lately: “The working class and the employing class have nothing in common.”We must work or perish. All the talk this employee chose the job “knowing how far away it was” is bullshit. That he has to choose a job so difficult to get to is nothing more than fodder for further condemnation of our society.  The charitable act here comes with a hidden agenda, as does the awful media representation of the story.  Charity, especially in this manner, is disempowering, condescending, and re-enforces class. Capitalist charity is always about composing the rich as good, generous, noble while composing the poor as short-sighted beggars always guilty of ending up in need of help, and so parasitic. One better hope that the employer in this story pays his employee enough to afford to properly care for and fuel his new car. Worst of all, charity makes people believe capitalism is good because it puts a very nice mask on the whole oppressive affair. That’s how we should talk about this story.
