Please don't fly a drone around campus, man.

Thanks for sharing bud, hope your weekend's going well.

You do not need to jump in water in order to be saved. Please seek some kind of help if you're having compulsions like that.

No, the Sodomites crime was bad hospitality visitors.

I know this is a popular line, but it's not really true. Inhospitality is one of Sodom's crimes, yes, but so is homosexuality:

Ezekiel 16:49-50 declares, "Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things before me..." The Hebrew word translated "detestable" refers to something that is morally disgusting and is the exact same word used in Leviticus 18:22 that refers to homosexuality as an "abomination."

And then there's Jude 1:7:

Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

Emphasis mine.

Serious question: why do you guys so often run in here, in bad faith, like you're the first person in the last two thousand years to think of this stuff? It just makes you look ignorant and angry.

Catechism of the Catholic Church, ¶1260: "Since Christ died for all, and since all men are in fact called to one and the same destiny, which is divine, we must hold that the Holy Spirit offers to all the possibility of being made partakers, in a way known to God, of the Paschal mystery." Every man who is ignorant of the Gospel of Christ and of his Church, but seeks the truth and does the will of God in accordance with his understanding of it, can be saved. It may be supposed that such persons would have desired Baptism explicitly if they had known its necessity.

Please seek psychiatric help, brother. There are no satanists cursing your food.

Unemployed.

Just say "scholar". Or philologist, if your studies lean that way. But either way, scholar.

  1. Just because someone is an empowered woman (even in a male dominated field) does not make her a feminist. This woman abused her power and is a hypocrite if she calls herself a feminist. Anybody who interprets feminism as "supporting all women over all men no matter what" is naive and holds an immature view of feminism and its purpose.
  2. The article incorrectly identified her as lesbian. She said she was queer. I feel they're using the term lesbian as a way to discredit the harassment (i.e. why would a lesbian be showing anything other than platonic affection toward a man?) The claim that she is lesbian is suspect.
  3. Nothing happens to #MeToo. It continues, it grows, and this terrible case does not invalidate it. It reinforces how much we need it.

Ronnell is one of the leading scholars in the field of feminist philosophy. That's why the article IDs her as a feminist (because, you know, she's one of the most famous and influential ones living), not because she's 'an empowered woman'. You don't get to no-true-Scotsman away any feminist who does bad things.

That article makes my blood boil. The worst part is all the people who wrote that letter in support of the professor. It's a goddamned disgrace to the ideals of feminism, to use them as a front for propping up the power structure that allowed this abusive behavior to happen. Professors have such absurd power over graduate students, I can't believe people who study power imbalances could look at what that woman did and say "yeah, this is ok, we should keep her in polite society." Or, I can, I'm just horrified at it. Some of them are probably protecting the power structure in order to protect their own abuses of power, frankly.

And I'm sure there's other harassment happening in that department since she's so important in it and is part of creating their department culture. I hope having their dirty laundry aired all over the front page of the NYT will be enough of a warning to save other grad students from going to that program and suffering similar treatment. And I hope the bad press convinces NYU to take the steps necessary to fire her, this is not what tenure is meant to protect.

This bit is particularly abhorrent:

"Diane Davis, chair of the department of rhetoric at the University of Texas-Austin [...] said she and her colleagues were particularly disturbed that, as they saw it, Mr. Reitman was using Title IX, a feminist tool, to take down a feminist."

The King James Version arrived to earth on a meteor in 33 AD.

Definitely try talking to your prof. This isn't the end of the road, and you're more than adequate. These things happen. Best of luck.

Welcome!

Thanks for weighing in, bud. Best of luck with the rest of high school.

Things in the New Testament to criticize? Like for example the verses that say slaves should obey their master, even the cruel ones? Or the part when Jesus had a hissy fit in the temple, grabbed a whip and started vandalizing other people’s property?

lol not vandalizing other people's property, what a deeply grave sin!

Well, I happen to believe vandalizing stuff is not a good thing. But hey, if Jesus did it, it must be right, right?

Be honest with yourself, in good faith, if with no one else: you really don't believe there are circumstances in which property damage is justifiable? And let's remember that the extent of the 'vandlizing' here is flipping over some tables and chasing people away. Someone took the wrong message away from Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing.

What are our chances?

Basically non-existent, sorry.

Do be wary of taking The Prince entirely at face value.

The Latin in the title is nonsense. It doesn't mean 'death dirt', it means something like 'with death the dirt'.

It's not paranormal, it's drugs, schizophrenia or a combination of the two. She needs a mental health evaluation and probably inpatient care. Do not try to exorcise her.

Go to church, dude, you're lost.

Gonna be a really fun day when they do this to someone legally carrying and some little dipshit gets rightfully blasted in the face with a round or three of 9mm. I hope it's sooner than later.

It's normal, healthy and good to fantasize about teenagers being violently murdered.
