    While these aren't about SJW's necessarily, but I've been having fun by taking a closer look at Jordan Peterson and his material.



    Here is a link to his lecture channel through this video below

    Texas
    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
    Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    Sort of a fairly light-hearted, non-academic screed against the dominant leftist culture in media and academia.  He exposes their tactics and motivations, their history and beliefs and generally lets some badly needed sunlight into that situation. 

    Actually, Dr. Peterson makes a fairly strong case for straight up Marxism rather than the cultural Marxism often referenced today.  PoMoFascistas (Post Modern Fascists ) is also a term that has been coined to describe the phenomenon.

    Well, I think the only reason it took him this long to arrive at that conclusion is the fact that he is a university professor.   :shrug   Couple that with your previous video that shows the statistic of steadily decreasing male enrollment in and graduation from colleges and universities and you can see that a lot of folks already think that.

    Pretty good compilation.  It sort of reminded me of a conversation I had once with a young woman re: the term "gender equality".  I asked what that term even meant outside the context of an academic discussion.   She thought briefly while chewing her cud ( at least I assume she was thinking .  .  .  ) and left me with "We all have to be equal.".   :scrutiny   I asked her in what way were we not equal?  She opined that men get paid a lot more for doing the same work.  I asked her how much could she lift over her shoulder and carry and how long could she continue doing it without a break ?   Sensing my line of reasoning, she opined that it wasn't a fair comparison because I was stronger than her.  I agreed and pointed out that we were, in fact, not equal in terms of ability in that case.  A person who is bigger and stronger and capable of doing more work should either be paid more for doing so or paid the same as a less capable worker and simply held to the lesser standard of the less capable worker to collect the same pay, no?  She hemmed and hawed a bit and never really found a way out of the logical conundrum and retreated to the "unfairness of the system" in order to save face.  When I pointed out that men are uniquely qualified to do most of the dirty and dangerous work that must be done in any society and that we do so gladly so that the women we cherish would be saved from having to do it she got mad and walked away.   :hmm

    That is one of the things that interests me, that feminist Camille Paglia talks about: How men have literally in the past built society for women and sacrificed their bodies and lives in construction and war. If modern woman continues on like this, could modern man actually be demotivated enough to just... Stop behaving as we did in the past? If those you give gifts to are ungrateful, do you keep giving them gofts just to be b____ed at?

    Of course I am only speaking in hypotheticals. Thankfully the 3rd gen feminist is a creature only found on college campuses, and she is certainly not the majority. The great majority of women that I know in my personal life have a sense of empathy that is worth emulating and a tenacious work ethic that puts many of today's young men to shame.

    There is a branch that is the polar opposite of feminism, which I suppose in all fairness I should share it here, because it is as equally absurd. The MGTOW movement (men going their own way).

    I really get upset at those guys, though (which is why I try to not share it). No one likes to be taken advantage of and gold diggers and the like do exist, but the MGTOW bunch are a... special bunch. Clown shoes special  :scrutiny.

    Not really familiar with that group but I think they are about equivalent in terms of actual numbers to the hard core feminists.  That is to say, a very small minority of the total number of women in a given society - even ours.  As Dr. Peterson pointed out, albeit in different terminology,  all the whining and bleating and complaining going on is essentially a First World problem.  In other words, if you have it so good that you never have to even imagine going without nutritious food,  proper clothing, effective shelter or a wireless internet connection you are privileged beyond belief.  You truly do inhabit that rarified strata attained by only a tiny fraction of a percent of all the people who have ever lived.  The fact that you can do so while simultaneously complaining about the conditions of the society that affords you this luxury is simply a testament to your own colossal ignorance.

    Agreed.

    And sigh. Let me see if I can find a MGTOW video or two that doesn't make me want to be done with both sexes, people in general, and only associate with dogs from now on. I like dogs. They are quiet enough to allow me time to think, they are loyal, and they don't care that I'm a bad cook. In fact the only thing I don't like about them is their short life spans.

    Where was I?...

    Oh yes, scouring the internet for horrible SJW videos  :facepalm.

    Oh yes, those guys... :facepalm

    I happened across their website one day, and ended up running away in terror.  I was momentarily drawn in because their line of reasoning is not 100% absurd, but quickly found that they take it waaayyy to far.  So far as to the point of a religion.  I actually intended to share the whole site to WTA - in the Random Internet Weirdness thread - but I forgot.

    If I am honest, I got the distinct vibe that their members are largely those who were doomed to be lifelong virgins anyway, either because of some personal quality of undesirability to women, or just because they were flat out too scared to talk to them.  The mgtow 'movement' is just a fancy way for those types to feel good about being losers, and to blame it all on women.

    One of the things I noticed before I ran away was a looong list of famous men who were bachelors. (conspicuously absent was President James Buchanan)  It was a nice list, but it misses a key point: Those guys were all bachelors, yes, but so have been most Catholic priests in history.  Who can name any of them, outside of the most famous?  Very few.  No one can, because they really didn't accomplish anything great - like most of us will not.  One key thing they give up is the chance to reproduce and raise their children.  This is just as much a civic and patriotic duty as voting, and a human one as well. I respect that priests do it for their faith, but I cannot respect 300lb armchair commandos who blame their undesirability on females - in just the same way 3GF types want to whore around shamelessly, and blame 'men' for the holes in their arguments.
