The SPLC lost all credibility for labeling Maajid Nawaz and Ayaan Hirsi Ali "anti-Muslim extremists." As if their lives weren't threatened enough.

I remember when the Stranger was fun and edgy and provocative. Now most of the political content just sounds like whining by authoritarian regressives.

Lost all respect for Greenpeace when they came out against GMOs.

Sam Harris addressed Milo on his podcast in a way I found nuanced and right on. I'm suspect someone out there will enjoy this:

I'm no expert on Milo--and I'm certainly no fan--but I have listened to the Rogan, the Gad Saad, and the Rubin interviews as well as various lectures online, so suspect I've spend more time with him than the majority here. My take is that there's two aspects to his thing: On one hand, he's a provocateur makining purposefully extreme statements, and I can almost guarantee he loves the kind of hate he gets from people here. However, if one gets a little deeper into his thinking, he is someone who actually uses facts to back up his opinions, which is more than I can say for many regressive liberal commentators. He also openly supports second wave feminism and I simply see no evidence that he is racist or anti-Semitic (unlike many on both the far right and far left, he openly supports Israel). If someone is of the mindset that anyone who criticizes BLM, Islamism, intersectionality, 3rd wave feminism, or the cult of identity politics is inherently racists, then sure, Milo is your worst enemy. But I'm quite sure responding with name calling is just playing right into his hands.

I agree with most of what you're saying, and I enthusiastically voted for her, but don't you think she does have some legitimate weaknesses too that have nothing to do with her gender? At least on the level of a candidate?

All organic means is that "natural" pesticides are used. Sometimes in greater quantity, and whether or not these "natural" pesticides are any healthier is anyone's guess. Likely doesn't make much difference anyway, particularly if you're inhaling burning plants into your lungs (granted a minuscule amount compared to the average cigarette smoker). Certainly organic uses more land and water than conventional, so theres's that to consider too.
Oct 4, 2016 Greenwood commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: A Counterpoint to Last Week's Tweet Storm of Advice for Straight Men.
As others have mentioned, I feel it's more correct to say women like confidence. I would almost say this is likely to be the number one personality trait that is likely to attract women (for better or worse, attractiveness is what is almost certainly the most likely characteristic to attract men). Sure, assholes are often confident, but I see this as more incidental. In my experience men who go on and on about women liking assholes (as I once did before I grew a pair somewhere in college), tend to be lack self confidence.
Oct 3, 2016 Greenwood commented on Netflix's Amanda Knox Leaves People of Color Out of the Story.
I found the documentary as convincing as your "analysis" is unconvincing. The prosecutor is a raving lunatic whose theories about what happened are deeply improbable. You're trying too hard to make this about race. The only crime the pretty American girl is guilty of is being a little weird (kind of like half the people I know).
