6 Sep 2022 3 minute read 10 comments Great White Snark

Smashing the Patriarchy is hard, even for men. Non-men fight it in groups. Men mostly fight it alone, as much outside of themselves as inside. I would know, having done my fair share of it and getting nowhere. I don't regret doing it, though. I'd lik...

   In the wake of George Floyd, America and, by proxy, the world at large have experienced a massive wave of oppressive stupidity.  Criminal justice no longer applies if your skin is dark enough and you claim to be "protesting."  Virtue signaling has...
