Re: School Violence

Is Ritalin even linked to any of the shootings? I don't think we'll find out unless it becomes evidence in court. Any medical entity faces stiff penalties for revealing a patient's private medical information. Right, but it's being (attempted to, anyway) used as a legitimate cause of school shootin...

I'm curious what other types of enforcement Mr. Peterson could have in mind, other than law.

Societal enforcement = law. No? What else could he mean by enforced monogamy?

How can I stay sane with Trump and other fascists in office? Slate is carrying a fine article by Dahlia Lithwick, How to Survive Trump’s Presidency Without Losing Your Mind.

At the risk of upsetting the mob, can I humbly suggest that this topic has become 95% arguing about the efficacy of Michael Avenatti's legal strategy (as well as his appearance) and 5% germane discussion of Michael Cohen, and perhaps it would be best for someone to create a thread for debating all ...

Nice guys -- there's a whole lot written on this topic, and I really don't want the board to blow up.

We get together sometimes after par...

How good someone is at their job is irrelevant.

The gamergate fiasco was far more lopsided than that portrayal of it, in my opinion, and overall gaming remains an EXTREMELY hostile environment for people who are not straight boys/men. It is a legitimate cause for outrage. Yes, for actual outrage. Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. Outra...

Microaggressions are real, and harmful. Bigotry is real, and harmful. Harassment is done by the powerful and is harmful.

There's a real need for calling such things out.
