Ignorance Is Hilarious: B-Side


I think I've finally found the ultimate intersection of things I regularly blog about hating: Hipsters & Bigots.

From a White Father to His Future Black Son

Dear Jared Mendel Tow,

This letter is predicated on the possibility that my girlfriend -- your mother -- and I marry and have children. The longer we stay together this scenario seems ever more real, and when I consider that it'll be my genes which will determine your gender... and since my immediate nuclear family is all male, this reality becomes a certainty.

Many people have asked me what I think about raising a son who will, in all likelihood, be seen as Black. Not White, not mixed, and maybe not even Jewish. They ask me how do I feel?

Faith & Rage: Misandry is also Misogyny

This post was originally to be published on a friend's private blog, however in order to avoid bringing any more drama I have decided to blog it here at my place, where I may moderate comments at my discretion while reducing the amount of trolls, flamers, and otherwise haters at her place.

It is in response to a rebuttal of a guest-post I made at my friend's blog which I have archived [here] for you to peruse before diving in to this one. Please be sure to read for comprehension!

Are you ready? Okay, let's go.

Intellectual Hospitality & Intellectual Hostility


"I am simply in favor of intellectual hospitality — that is all." — Robert G. Ingersoll 

Among the many, often overlooked annoyances that I, in my supreme good graces tend to let slide is the behavior people exhibit in a discussion where they ask you to admit the flaws or holes in your argument, yet do not do this themselves. Or even worse, when you take the matter upon yourself to properly present your case, and like any good researcher, point out the flaws that yet do not invalidate your findings. You admit your biases, and the possible arguments against your conclusions, even as you demonstrate continued faith in them. Meanwhile, the opposition engages in hostile debate as if all of their arguments are built of solid bedrock, when in fact they are just as flawed -- if not moreso by their hubris -- as yours are.

What I want just for once is people to admit it when their wrong, or mistaken, or possibly confused. What I want just for once is for someone in a rational debate to admit that their essay-length comments aren't air-tight bastions of rationality, but just another opinion susceptible to all manner of fallacies.

But then again if people did that, well, there wouldn't be an argument in the first place! So I guess I'll just settle for a continuance of my carpet-bombing ignorance with knowledge and a higher standard of conversation.




Cheers

Ignorance is Hilarious

It seems that lately my absence from the usual inflammatory bloggings have left something of a... hole in the center of cyberspace that bigots have decided is a great place to start dumping their ignorance!

Le sigh.

(Yes you, the racist d-bag with the blog.)


While my posts, [Why Do Haters Gotta Hate?], [Pariah Complex], and [Ain't Nothin' But A Thang] touch on the niceties of pseudo-intellectual racists, anti-Semites, misogynists, misandrists, xenophobes, Islamophobes, homophobes, and all other kinds of... phobes, I'm afraid they just don't do justice to the ever growing whiney-ness, and ever shrinking in relevance of such notorious bastions of fail like the blogosphere's Alt-Right.

So here, now, I will present for you some lines taken from various sites among the Alt-Right where they will be [fisked], since that is what The Right is so fond of doing to The Left. (Even though both parties are basically the same anyways.) Afterwards, I will psychoanalyze them to justify my rebuttal, and then probably take a proverbial "dump" on the remains of each line of hilarious prejudice and their author with a combination of sarcausticism and funny pictures.

I hope y'all enjoy! But really this is mostly for my own entertainment.

Infamy At Last


My good friend Ziggy King recently invited me over to [Pirate Cat Radio] to give an interview on The G Spot with Bobby Guap. The whole shebang was real nifty and I was honored to be put in the spotlight for my work at the Cafe International open-mic as well have the chance to shamelessly promote it, along with a lengthy chunk of my Life Story.

[Here's the link] to the podcast which we recorded during the live broadcast. Hope ya'll enjoy it as much as I did!

Cheers

Here's the Happenstance


Hey ya'll.

I know, I've been kind of a no-show lately. Publishing some comments 'n' such, but not really doing any posting. I apologize. Been busy. Been VERY busy.

Currently I work as an office administrator for a popular tour company here in SF at the Wharf. I'm promoting my weekly open-mic in the Lower Haight via a flurry of gigs and an interview on Pirate Cat Radio (Wednesday after next). I'm also revising my upcoming book... which always seems to be upcoming and never just coming out. Finally I've been dealing with the usual hassles of being basically broke, cutting through the ish, and generally working my kosher ass off to stay ahead of my problems. What'd Rick Ross say? Every day I'm hustlin'.

But nonetheless, I apologize and beg your indulgence during these tumultuous times as I get my shit together. I'll post again soon.
