Apropos of Nothing

 
"Nothing at all."

Miki here is a game sprite and as such can't be doxxed, fired, DDOSed or otherwise struggled against in any meaningful way. 
Oh, and on a completely unrelated note, she is totally the one who pointed out to me this Harlan Ellison rant from 1994.

Thoughts on Privilege and Structural Bigotry

A friend of mine who I respect a tremendous amount pointed me to this  SJW screed....approvingly.


The article is actually thoughtful and well written, and I don't mean "by the standards of SJW screeds" either.  I'll elaborate on my disagreements with it in a moment, but I urge you to read the whole thing. 

The article ( by a Laurie Penny) is actually a response to a blog comment by MIT Professor Scott Aaronson . The comment (which the author doesn't directly link to) is here. It is also  thoughtful and I encourage you to take time to read it. 

If you've read both article and post, you've already lost 12 minutes of your life so you won't miss what you'll lose by reading on.

I HAVE A PURPOSE!!

Todays lesson gentle readers is how to not comment coherently and politely.

 

I have a tremendous respect for any of those talented souls who are not only creative but the drive and discipline to actually produce these things.

You would never get that impression from what I typed in this post.

Behold my descent into asshattery.

No, I have no idea. Usually I have at least a BIT of tact and sense....

Anyway, here is an open letter to all the writers who have been hosed by their producers not paying them.....

Dating Dimorphism & Dispair

Over at Chizumatic is a long, thoughtful and rather brave disquisition on the pressing topic of otaku dream girls. Stephen points out the biggest of many hurdles there are to Otaku dating.....(incidentally, this very nebbish factor is one reason I tend not to like harem shows).

Meanwhile, in the UK a scientist has pointed out what might happen if we forlorn Otaku are allowed to breed, instead of being the evolutionary dead ends that so many of our predecessors were.

Truly frightening prospects, but I'm doing my bit to keep this dystopia at bay..

I'm watching Chobits.....
