No, pages hang all the time for me, and frequently I have to repost something because posts go nowhere.

It can take up to 5 seconds for a page to load sometimes, I've counted.

Lol Dave imagines Trump dealing with farm animals. He freaks out over female biology. He wouldn't touch his wives for months after childbirth. was disgusted if they had a bit of baby weight, and then there's this:

Donald Trump had an "absolute meltdown" when a lawyer requested a break from a 2011 deposition to pump breast milk.
"He got up, his face got red, he shook his finger at me and he screamed, 'You're disgusting, you're disgusting,' and he ran out of there," attorney Elizabeth Beck told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on Wednesday morning.

What normal sane man screams and runs away because a woman asks for a breast pumping break? Is that normal, Dave? You think Trump is gonna touch a goat or cow teat?

"hot enough"? :hmm:

You look like ReallyNiceCuteDadTM. While often adorable, response is more likely to be 'Awww!' than 'Hot!'

Humble-bragging aside, a man has to be extremely, I mean extremely unattractive not to have at least some women appreciate their manliness.

Have seen one or two pics of OP8 and ksen. Hot and hot enough.

I'm old, I can be objective about these things.  :stuckup:

Oh, that's one of the least victim blaming screeds.

There's a particularly long wot insane defense claim attempting to sound 'intellectual' that basically presents a bunch of incel notions as 'truth'.

Because women are sluts these days and men aren't responsible for their actions when lonely and horny.

FWIW, reddit post :

I went to school this semester with Alek.
He is a really smart guy, certainly knew his way around computers and programming. It's my best guess that he had Asperger's - it was evident in our interactions. And my thoughts are that it led to a negative view of his college experience. We all had to do a huge 3 man group project this semester, and Alek did his alone. The news states he didn't have many friends in high school, so I can only imagine that another 7 years without a whole lot of support in college worsened him. He posted a message in our Slack group which was evident of this. I can only imagine how he felt, but he was probably alone and hopeless before this horrendous tragedy. His involvement with the incel community could have stemmed from this --and the basic human need to feel wanted. He was in a lot of pain, compounded by a lack of companionship. Not just with women. It's unfortunate these communities exist, as they are detrimental to people. But to blame Alek for being an 'incel', and acting out on his hate for women is probably wrong.
I pray for the victims and their families, they did not ask of this fate. Alek too, needs our prayers. I couldn't image having a son feel so alone and hopeless in the world that they lash out like this. Truly devastating. Let it be a reminder to ourselves, we ought to love everyone we come across.

So I had a friend in high school who got sucked into the pro-anorexia internet morass that was around at the time, and saw a little bit of what sort of shit was going on in those communities, and it wasn't substantially different. You'd have a lot of people, women mostly, putting peer pressure on each other to really fully give in to their disease, glorifying suicide, and spitting a lot of rage at "normal" women, with the rape apologia you're talking turning up there as well. There is, of course, the autism master race mindset that is not just limited to "incels" but has a broader following outside of alt-right, with overlap into New Atheists and other shitlords, and that's still part of these mentally-ill echo chambers that are cropping up.

I am not saying that ideology is not contributing to this, because it obviously is a part of the problem, but one of the big problems with the internet is it allows people who have severe mental illnesses to form communities that are defined by those illnesses and the social problems those illnesses create. I've seen a lot of serious discussion about how these communities defined by mental illness are themselves both uniquely vulnerable to political radicalization AND are being explicitly targeted by the alt-right as easy targets for radicalization. There's probably a case to be made that anonymous boards like 4chan, and networks of semi-private discussion like dischord and reddit, are actually facilitating this process by both making it easier for these pathological mental health communities to sequester themselves off from the rest of society AND for members of those communities to cross over into alt-right recruitment communities.

Yes to all that, but there are significant large numbers of people on the autism spectrum who don't become interested in such communities and go about their lives in as ordinary a manner as they can, often very successfully. And most people suffering from a broad range of mental illnesses never involve themselves in toxic internet gatherings nor become dangerous in any way.

Alt right recruitment communities seem to me to largely consist of people who are plain ordinary dyed in the wool racist shitbags rather than significantly collectives of the mentally ill.

They had a 40,000 member strong community on reddit that reddit shut down for the extreme and often violent misogynist posts. And just violent posts in general. Oh, and promotion of suicide. Mix in a bit of pedophilia, some rape apologia, occasional support for murder. Certainly poor mental health, some obvious body dismorphia (some would post pics of their 'ugly' faces and they were just average looking joes) probably a fair number of trolls egging them on, but the main content was hatred of women.

On one hand, the recent revelation that Hans Asperger was involved in euthanasia of kids with autism was horrifying, but...

Also was learning disabled (autism), took special ed classes beginning in elementary school, was known for walking around in school rubbing his hands and meowing.

Armenian family, they are Christians mostly, not Muslim.

Without the bizarre hateful online incel circle-jerk communities fuelling his imagination, he might have stuck with making cat-noises and all those people would still be alive.

Toxic masculinity is one of the biggest threats to public safety.

As it has been forever.
13
Also looking forward to people arguing over whether Caucasians from the literal Caucasus are white and by "looking forward to" I mean brb drinking bleach

I've already seen enough of those 'discussions' - is everyone on major social media platforms fucking 12 to 16 year old boys with no lives?

I like the style that is just long enough to be below your hips, and nice and full, 'swingy'.

Yeah but I love that coat.  :ohmy:
Me too! I'd wear a coat like that if only I could lose weight.  :crai:

Don't deprive yourself - find a proper 50s style Swing Coat with a similar theme and wear it with joy. Or find a pattern and some great fabric and make one or have a seamstress make one.

There are some on this page, the ones that widen as soon as they hit mid-bust. They're very flattering on full figures, especially with jeans or leggings.

Indeed. His wife, who apparently is not at all sure her husband would not have indulged in some stupid piss role play with hookers on a bed the Obamas slept in.

One of the saddest bits of info that has emerged is that Trump wanted the FBI to find out for sure that the pee tape doesn't exist (thus: prove a negative), because, while Trump is sure it doesn't, in fact insists it doesn't (because he's a germophobe), "Melania hears things".

"You know what virtually guarantees that you won't become a true hero like those guys? Comparing yourself to those guys."

Nope.

Comparing ourselves to people like this is good because it makes us realize how far short of their standard we fall.  I am not even close to the level of self-sacrifice and love for others that I see in the life of Jesus and the life of Gandhi, but I do see progress in my life. I certainly am closer to being like them in these ways than I was say 10 years ago.

But how does being a right cunt have anything to do with being like Jesus or Gandhi?

Gandhi was a right cunt irt women.

Mary Beard has been excised from much of her screen time in the American version of the BBC series Civilisations because of an aversion to showing "a slightly creaky old lady with long grey hair", she has suggested.
Professor Beard, 63, who co-presented the series with Simon Schama and David Olusoga, said that she was "rather sad" about the decision, which was taken without her consent.
She wrote on Twitter in response to a review of the American version by the Wall Street Journal, which described the PBS broadcast as "anodyne".
She told her 192,000 followers: "Really hope that friends in USA realise that my Civilisations episodes on PBS are very different from original BBC versions, have been drastically changed. The originals were far from 'anodyne' I promise."

Ignore what Borealis says.  She likes to run her mouth and it's almost all completely irrelevant.

You talk to your mother like that?

You hate what I say because a tiny corner of your brain is telling you a good deal of what I say is relevant and correct. You just don't like it.

Oh, and you're a dyed in the wool misogynist, there's that, too.
No. It's complete bullshit.  You are just like Pingu ... waxing eloquent with pure bullshit. So glad she's gone.  She is the most anti knowledge person I've ever met.  You are a close second.

Indeed. She thought you weren't irredeemably stupid and tried to teach you something.

Nevertheless, I'm proud to be associated with her in any way.

Also, Dave, I've been conversing with people on the internet since 1996 and you are by far the most rude, obnoxious, hateful man I've encountered so far who wasn't an outright self-described white supremacist.
