Yeah, Roy Edroso had that for breakfast this morning.

Seriously. I'm not very well educated, and half drunk most of the time, but I do know how to read, and I swear to God I have no idea what he's saying. I don't know how "a civilization of men, for men, and by men" relates to anything else he said. I don't know what he means by women's "privileged relationship with the natural world," unless my browser has failed to show me the picture of a lady sniffing a purty flower that was supposed to explain it. And as to "imitation by quasi-feminized males of quasi-masculinized females," it sounds like Archie Bunker had one of those Flowers for Algernon operations.

for some reason makes me think of the mom of the dude esther greenwood is dating in the bell jar, who tells esther, "what a man is is an arrow into the future and what a woman is is a place to shoot that arrow off from" or something to that effect.

At this point in the USA’s evolution toward complete ethnic disaggregation, arguing about who is or is not “white nationalist” is less to the point than wondering why anyone thinks there’s anything wrong with such a position.

Mr. Pareene starts right off with an error: I didn’t host the panel, I was a guest. Proceeding from sloppy journalism to personal vituperation, he then calls me a pervert, on what grounds I do not know. (I don’t, come to think of it, even know what a pervert is anymore in the age of NAMBLA, gay marriage, and Madonna in bondage gear on prime-time network TV. My dad, along with well-nigh every other person of his generation, would have said that Barney Frank is a pervert, but I’m guessing this is not Mr. Pareene’s point of view.)

(For the uninitiated, Gawker’s imperative role on the Internet is that of the mother bird, partially digesting the work of others with the enzymes of bored irony and the gastric juices of sarcasm, and regurgitating stub articles fit for the consumption of the shrieking, featherless hatchlings that comprise my doomed generation.)

this is a bit longer than "all the news that's fit to print" but it's a pretty good line for the masthead all the same

I realize he's trolling for attention still but I'm rendered speechless by this. "homosexualists" how witty. as one of the commenters points out, if you read the new yorker story on this incident the two harasser students don't exactly come across as sympathetic, it's pretty clear that they hounded this poor kid into committing suicide.

that's not exactly how i read the new yorker story

congratulations (n/a), Wednesday, 22 February 2012 16:42 (2 years ago) Permalink

I read the New Yorker story and I didn't think it was clear they hounded him into anything! If anything, there is plenty of evidence that Ravi was a sophomoric jerk and tried to cover his tracks, but most definitely a near absence of how that affected Clementi.

The real issue to me is the commenters who seem to think that living in a dorm room means you have no expectation of privacy! These dudes are like the anti-civil rights brigade

I heard "homosexualists" a lot when in 2002 Miami-Dade County tried to pass a bill protecting the rights of homosexuals. It's used to distinguish those who are politically active from, er, those who aren't?

guess you're right, it's fruitless to speculate exactly why somebody kills himself, even with a note but derbs' utter lack of sympathy and trumped-up sense of outrage for Ravi - who I submit is more pathological than just a sophomoric jerk though he's that too - has ignited my own sense of righteous indignation. think I'm done with NRO these people are just beyond the pale.

demolition with discretion (m coleman), Wednesday, 22 February 2012 16:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

"homosexualists" is an anachronism from the victorian era or sometime. derbyshire's idea of being cute and oh so britishes

demolition with discretion (m coleman), Wednesday, 22 February 2012 16:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

homosexualist agenda is supposed to correlate to feminist agenda, I believe

you know, these minorities trying to push their propaganda on us

valleys of your mind (mh), Wednesday, 22 February 2012 16:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

from the nyer story the suicide seemed like a shock -- clementi looked externally to be handling everything really well. just goes to show, of course. i'm not sure myself that ravi should get ten years in an american prison for being a thoughtless narcissistic dick (i'm not really sure who this helps), but yeah derb's intense anger and all that OUR CHILDREN ARE TOLD HOMOSEXUALS SHOULD BE "PROUD" SO WHY'S THIS GUY HAVING TROUBLE WITH IT stuff just demonstrates again how hugely furious it makes these people to hear complaints from anyone who's not whitestraightreligious. then they think this feeling they have is oppression! admittedly they have nothing to compare it to.

I'm not sure how to feel either tbh

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Wednesday, 22 February 2012 17:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

I am sure Ravi should be tried for this; the notion of sentence should only be considered if the verdict comes in and he's found guilty.

(thinks and smiles) (DJP), Wednesday, 22 February 2012 17:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

The charges against Ravi have nothing to do with the suicide, iirc. Which is why his lawyers can't get access to the presumed suicide note through discovery.

President Keyes, Wednesday, 22 February 2012 17:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

just demonstrates again how hugely furious it makes these people to hear complaints from anyone who's not whitestraightreligious.

to be clear, derbyshire is anti-religious too! he's against anything with even a whiff of compassion to it, except for the anti-universal of racial solidarity.

i think he's just mad that a common form of cruelty is becoming more socially unacceptable.

Critique of Pure Moods (goole), Wednesday, 22 February 2012 17:16 (2 years ago) Permalink

On one hand, his behavior was unacceptable, completely assholish, and he invaded the dude's privacy

On the other hand, holy shit would we have a lot of convictions if you prosecuted every time someone was like that in a dorm.

The conservative take here is probably "kids will be kids"

Here's the story in case anyone needs a refresher:

lol at the implication in the comments that Clementi was some Rob Lowe-style dude who "knew" he was being recorded.

It's a dorm room, no expectation of privacy, right, of course watching your roommate via webcam is totally normal

it's why so many universities are doing away with dorm rooms altogether and having students sleep in dining halls

nah. homosexualists, darwinists, mohamedists, maryolatrists; etc. On par with democrat party. Just a way to change a name to make it seem sinister, denoting an agenda, and trying to take away from the subject the power that comes from self-naming. Really just name-calling without much thought to it. It's kind of a defined pattern and it's done instinctually these days by rightists
