Mike Nipper is the most insufferable, narcissistic writer on the Stranger's staff. And this is the most insufferable of his posts since this gem:

http://www.thestranger.com/slog/archives…

Insufferable!

And the quote from this story: "sorry to diverge from my normal nerdy shit and go pop."
So insufferable!

Yes, I'm using the word "insufferable" a lot, but it just fit's Mike's writing so well.

He's probably delightful in person though.

So I just watched the video. I saw lots of totally obnoxious behavior. Several instances rose to the level of "harassment", and guys who followed her were totally creepy. So point made.

But a guy saying "good evening" or "what's up, miss" without moving closer to her isn't harassment, and counting those toward 100 instances of harassment doesn't strike me as fair.

This exaggeration harms their point, which should be, if you are a pretty woman and walk around NYC, you will get harassed and followed several times. That's plenty bad. Counting the "hellos" as harassment just give's the men's rights type something to latch onto.

Finally, I was just talking to a woman who moved here from NYC. Unsolicited, she was complaining about how guys out here never "gave her any compliments" and how "shy and pathetic" Seattle guys are. I can't say I agree with her, I prefer the Seattle guy's approach. But the point is, one woman's harassment is another's compliment.

Good luck! You you're one of the few stranger writers who didn't seem polarizing. Everyone seems to like you, I certainly did. Except for the grumpy vegetarians. No pleasing them.

Another fernet sheep. Have some damn originality.

Dollars to doughnuts the family adopted for religious reasons. We are in the middle of an adoption, and are not religious. Our peers (other adopting parents) are not shy at all about making the process about them and their relationship with god, forgetting that it is really about the kids. That plus a lot of holier than thou grandstanding makes me think that half their motivation is the kudos they get at church. Yuck.

Finally! A bartender whose favorite drink isn't "a shot of fernet". Fernet is great and all (I like it too) but it's pathetic when every bartender thinks they are blowing your mind by saying that fernet is their drink. Good on you Jackie. Now, what the fuck is Hussongs?

I posted this in one other thread too...

I'm not sorry for one solitary one of those dingle-berries. They have the sadz because they were ostracized and pushed around by a tyrannical narcissist? They signed their own dumb asses up for it. Anyone who didn't smell Mark Driscoll's stench the first time they saw him is a fucking idiot.

Apparently all his bad behavior was all fine with until they were on the wrong end of it. Christianity in general and these creepy evangelical cults in particular seem to be about creating cliques, in groups and out groups, and allowing people to feel superior to others. Reap what you sow, fuckers!

Yes, I see the irony of my feeling superior to them.

@13. Way to see the bad in any situation! You must be great fun at parties.

I consider myself a critic of how policing works in the country. But there is also selection bias. We hear about it when things go wrong. When interactions go right between cops and citizens it isn't a story.

My take: cops are mostly good people, mostly trying to do a good job under difficult circumstances. What is wrong is the institutional and cultural tolerance for bad behavior and bad cops. Cops need to be held to a higher standard than regular folks, and ill-doers must be rooted out in a way that they currently aren't.

The tolerance at all levels, inside and outside police departments, for bad behavior by law-enforcement is unbelievable, and shameful, and stains the reputations of the many good cops doing their best.
