The faculty is crazy enough, but the real crazies are in the administration. … The faculty used to rule. Your professors used to run the place. They don’t anymore. Now you have layers of bureaucracy and management sitting on top of the faculty, paid vast salaries, whose job is to find something for themselves to do. And so what the something have turned into is enlarging the universities, you know, making them these huge businesses.

Possibly, but more likely is that he's a drama queen for the side that doesn't normally get drama queens working for it. You know, give them a dose of their own medicine.

Here’s what I think…these ideas about how words have deep and sometimes hidden impacts on people…they developed in isolation at academic institutions. They sat around in the collective consciousness of liberal-arts educated folks like myself for a long time before finally leaking out as the internet brought over-educated people together with people who had never been exposed to these ideas.

When that started happening, it mostly resulted in harmless frustration as people who were 10 steps deep into these issues expressed frustration at people who were busy living lives that did not include feminist critique (and vice versa).

But the internet doesn’t amplify harmless frustration, it amplifies the voices of the most outraged. And the outrage pulls useless, angry, poorly-reasoned arguments out of both sides. Then one side shares the worst of the responses from the other side. And the other side responds in kind.

The anti-SJW side never actually got exposed to the original arguments, they were either exposed to the worst reactions of angry feminists or to the imagined, inflamed, and even impersonated versions that have popped up over the last few years.

After having been been exposed to those judgements (or the imagined versions of them) people feel as if they’ve been told that they are evil or bad or whatever and MUST BEAHVE DIFFERENTLY. And the response of young people, especially young men, when they think someone is trying to control them with what sounds like adversarial and made-up bullshit tends to be frustration and anger. This isn’t just young people and it’s not just men, but it tends to be young men because there’s a tendency among both young people and men to chafe at people attempting to control them.

And, yes, it tends to be young white men, because white people are, on average, less used to people attempting to control them. And, yes, it gets worse if the person attempting to do the controlling is a woman because, well…maybe let’s not go there right now. And there’s nothing like a person who is unused to feeling persecuted, and is maybe also feeling insecure and searching for a way to identify with strength and masculinity (and, in the most severe cases, might even be feeling very lost and lonely and rejected for other reasons), for spending a lot of time getting really angry really publicly.

So that’s what I think it’s about. And I think both sides participated handily in airwolfing it up. Because this was all supposed to be about empathy, and yet so many people’s first exposure to these theories was being shouted at for being in the world incorrectly. And as much as young white men do not sound like the group of people that needs the most empathy in the world, I think there has been a lot of damage done to the world by belittling their frustrations and calling them unimportant. Even if those frustrations are comparatively unimpo Message too long. Click here to view the full text.

1. Tarantino and Marxist class

“Reality is meaningless,” says Baudrillard; however, according to Humphrey[1] , it is not so much reality that is meaningless, but rather
the absurdity, and some would say the fatal flaw, of reality. Marx’s essay on
subcapitalist cultural theory states that truth is intrinsically elitist.

Thus, in Neverwhere, Gaiman denies conceptualist substructural
theory; in The Books of Magic, although, he analyses neocapitalist
deappropriation. The subject is contextualised into a subcapitalist cultural
theory that includes narrativity as a totality.

It could be said that Geoffrey[2] suggests that we have
to choose between neocapitalist deappropriation and Sartreist absurdity. If the
neomodernist paradigm of expression holds, the works of Gaiman are postmodern.

In what order should I read and respond to posts in a thread?

Should I just go in order, or should I follow the replies?

Sexual side-effects are also common with SSRIs, such as loss of sexual drive, failure to reach orgasm, and erectile dysfunction. Although usually reversible, these sexual side-effects can, in some cases, last for months or years after the drug has been completely withdrawn.

I was lied to! I was told it wasn't possible there could be lingering side effects.

In a study of 1022 outpatients, overall sexual dysfunction with all antidepressants averaged 59.1%.

I was again lied to. I was told side effects are extremely rare.

Antidepressants can cause emotional blunting, or numbness. Sometimes this is good, because it reduces extreme emotions, but sometimes it's bad, if the patient can't feel happiness, or empathy, when appropriate. It may be cause for a dose reduction or medication change. The cause is unknown.

I wasn't even told about this at all!

I feel betrayed.

If they're extremely rare, they're extremely rare. His anecdotal membership in the extremely rare group does not make it less rare, it just means he needs to buck up, be a good camper, and report back to his doctor so they can try a different medication.

There is a wide range of people in this world and there is no way that every drug is going to be effective on every one of them. There are people in this world who can't take aspirin. It's - get this - extremely rare but it does happen.

>>765486 seems a bit paranoid, but I know the "scientific" research that goes into most FDA-approved products is funded by the companies that profit from their sale, and that most of the FDA itself consists of laws and regulations that corporations lobbied for to increase profits.

From a distance, a goose call looks not too dissimilar from a vape pen. It really livens things up when you join your coworkers for a smoke break.
