Hey, it's Friday

Well, this certainly was an interesting week. I haven't been called an "asshole" that many times since, well, last week. In case you missed any of the action, you can read my pièce de résistance post on trigger warnings and why they don't work here.

After a while, the whole thing got kind of depressing, not because of comments like, "She's not warm enough or deep enough to be a cunt," but because a) critiquing feminism is like shooting fish in a barrel, b) any purported counterargument amounted to "you're stupid," and c) it is too often the case on the internet that there is a profound lack of formidable opponents.

And who wants to be the Anderson Silva of the blogosphere?
