SIO113: Panel Discussion on Aziz Ansari

Where does the Babe.net article on Aziz Ansari land on the spectrum of #metoo moments? Are the old-school feminists correct when they say women ought to say no and call a cab? Today’s episode is a discussion between two people who come out on different ends of some of these questions. It’s an attempt to find some common ground and understanding on a very important issue.

Note: This episode contains strong language and discussion of sexual activity.

Today’s episode begins with some thoughts on what can be a moral blindspot when it comes to fat shaming and looks shaming Trump.

SIO110: No, Steven Pinker Isn’t Alt-Right (but he’s still wrong…)

*I mention Eiynah as the one who sent me the video. I just want to emphasize she had the full context and I didn’t mean to imply she was spreading the fake news version without thinking. She has a great thread on it here.

Recently, an edited video circulated and caused an uproar among liberals. It features Steven Pinker seeming to praise the intelligence of the alt-right and asserting that there are certain “truths” to be found there. Is there more to the story? Always. But it doesn’t mean he isn’t still wrong about stuff. I talk about that video and a few others of his that I’ve analyzed, including an incredibly frustrating one called “Why Do Progressives Hate Progress?” (this video features absolutely zero examples of progressives hating progress.)

Full Redpill Video; Free Speech Video; Progressives Hate Progress Video; PZ Myers Post; Quora Article on Larry Summers; Pinker’s Self Confessed Political Leanings; Shaun King on Why US Isn’t the Best; US Life Expectancy Down; How Liberal Are Professors; BREW CITY BENEFIT!!

SIO109: A Carefully Curated Tom Curry

Is Twitter real life?

Tom from Cognitive Dissonance is here with me to talk about his philosophy on dealing with criticism and unpleasant people online. It’s very zen and interesting, but is it something you and I would be able to adopt? Then we move on to the broader topic of the morphing of analog and digital lives and how the world is changing.
