Response to Here’s How A Fake Feminist Hashtag Like #EndFathersDay Gets Started And Why It’ll Keep Happening:
What’s missed in this article is that these fake hashtags succeed in demonstrating Poe’s law. Wonder why these dummy accounts “look and seem like real activists”? Because real social justice warrior “activists” are quite often that stupid and that extreme. If they didn’t quite *often* descend into self-parody, these campaigns wouldn’t go anywhere. As just one example, note the “it’s transphobic (or even “hate speech”) to not to be sexually attracted to trans people” meme that was seriously advanced by not-faked accounts just the other day.
Response to The Truth About Bondage:
Saletan’s article was some unbelievable BS. On the other hand, considering the over the top rhetoric of some of the “consent culture” crowd, the fact that this kind of rhetoric has been given a green light is hardly surprising. Your friend Thomas Millar has been busy declaring a “war” within BDSM, which he’s painting as a hotbed of abusers, and lobbying the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom to drop its focus on BDSM legal rights in favor of fighting the community’s alleged problems with consent. There are plenty of other examples out there. With “friends” like that, who needs William Saletan?
