If someone told me to use the pronoun "their" for a single person, I would say "oh, are you quantity-queer too?"

"Excuse me, I speak Jive"
Nov 24, 2014 Foggen commented on The Time I Spent Nine Hours in Jail.
I hope this is fiction, or somehow intended as self-flagellation, because the level of narcissistic shittiness in this piece is off the charts.
Nov 19, 2014 Foggen commented on Big Hypocrite Rand Paul Votes Against NSA Reform.
From everything I can tell, the USA Freedom Act as voted upon was a bullshit piece of legislation that left plenty of loopholes for the intelligence apparatus to exploit, renewed several nasty elements of the Patriot Act, mooted several important ongoing judicial challenges to state surveillance, and offered only weaksauce protections that could be undermined (like the FISA advocate). Better to send them back to the drawing board on this version and fight against re-authorizing the main Patriot Act in 2015. I'm not a Paulite, but this sure isn't a reason to jump on him.
Nov 10, 2014 Foggen commented on Republican Calls Net Neutrality "Obamacare for the Internet".
If he had any integrity he would say Sherman Act for the Internet, and then argue from there.
Nov 5, 2014 Foggen commented on A Thought on the Pedestrian Crossing Button.
It's well documented that a large percentage of these buttons are connected to nothing, affecting nothing. This is taken by some to mean that people pressing the button receive, in their ignorance, some false satisfaction in the notion that they have some kind of control. However, some buttons apparently do do something, and we have no way of knowing, so we must press the button just in case some benefit will occur, despite no evidence of effect or evidence to the contrary.

Now, within this, we have people who refuse to press the button because they don't want to be chumps. And we have people who judge others for not assuming that they themselves have pressed the button. How foolish, they say, these people who in navigating the strange sociopolitical context of these buttons cannot intuit my feelings and past actions as a matter of course, as children.

Fuck off.
Sep 29, 2014 Foggen commented on Guest Editorial: We Believe Seattle Doesn't Need a Juvenile Detention Center at All.
This article seems to directly imply that no youth offenders must ever be jailed, up to and including those who commit violent assault:

"For the rare case in which a young person has engaged in a serious act of harm toward another, the proper response is to seek healing and reconciliation, not punishment."

This just in, Slog posts editorial saying rapists and murderers should not go to jail.

This is almost certainly not affiliated with the @DRUNKHULK Twitter feed, therefore you are fired.
Sep 16, 2014 Foggen commented on Never Managed To Find Your G-Spot?.
There have been a lot of people making the claim that it's some kind of distinct organ, so it's valuable to know it isn't.
Aug 26, 2014 Foggen commented on Grapefruiting? Is There Anything Straight People Won't Do?.
It sounds like someone's being attacked by a wolverine.
