What is going on with the apparent trolls the last few days? submitted by Sento_Fernner to AskVoat

Crom 0 points 31 points (+31|-0) ago

Not even sure that you can call those guys trolls. A real troll is clever, often funny, or so good at what they do that you don't even know they're trolls. Posting the equivalent of 'girls are dumb' over and over and over is more like what a 7th grader thinks trolling is. Easy enough to tune out, as it's neither amusing, nor sharp enough to rouse feelings of anger. It packs the punch of a low-salt saltine cracker.

Hello there everyone. Another Redditor here (8 years) jumping ship. I already like the look and feel of this place and I'm actually really excited to start fresh and help build something great, submitted by Thoughtninja to introductions

It's pretty great! Real dialogue without hostility, the first comment isn't a pun, and people generally seem more interested in interaction than in being right. Hopefully the Reddit ethos doesn't taint this place!

And hopefully you enjoy your stay here.

Carly Fiorina: "[feminism] has devolved into an ideology...where women are pitted against men and used to win elections" submitted by acratus to politics

Crom 1 points 12 points (+13|-1) ago

This is odd though. Nobody that studies feminism sees it as an ideology. The core of feminism is the consideration of female agency in whatever arena you're studying. Old-school history considers chiefly political and military leaders, leaving women out. Fuller historical analysis considers the family, social interactions, and maintenance of a functioning community. That includes both men and women, obviously. And that true both historically and for contemporary considerations. And that's sort of the purest definition of feminism.

As soon as you introduce a political agenda, it should be called something else, because it's a movement that's straying from the original meaning. I mean, let's say that you're a proponent of grilled cheese sandwiches. You like two slices of american cheese on white bread, with butter to aid in browning. Some people use fancy cheeses, but it's still a grilled cheese. Then someone adds tomatoes, and later some prosciutto. Maybe still grilled cheese, but the other flavors are competing. Then they add bacon and avocado and a chipotle aioli. The cheese is no longer the star of the show. Then they add a few more deli meats, or maybe some seared steak. And decide to do away with the bread and just have a nice hunk of steak with a dusting of parmesan. But they still call it grilled cheese. And then everybody reacts to that recipe and talks about how grilled cheese is so fake and crappy. But real grilled cheese is still available, and its proponents wonder why nobody wants to talk about them anymore.

TL;DR I like grilled cheese

Culture wars (US related) submitted by philbob to KotakuInAction

This will probably be downvoted and/or disagreed with, but I'm of the opinion that you're dealing with a very small and non-influential portion of the population when you talk about SJW nonsense. These attitudes are not at all supported by academics who devote their lives to the study of gender....

Are there any conspiracy theories you believe in but disregard most others as nonsense? submitted by contains_nutsndBOLTS to AskVoat

I know almost nothing about the science of global warming, but this is the video that made me see things outside of the political theater that it plays in now:

It struck a chord with me because rather than focusing on trends and data that can be interpreted in several ways, it hits squarely on quantifiable, measurable, unambiguous data. And I've searched for a rebuttal to this information, but haven't found one. All responses deal with long-term trends, interpretation of ice cores, el nino, etc. It's interesting anyway. And the dispassionate presentation is very welcome.

The law of outer space? That sounds both interesting and like it's going to be a burgeoning field soon. So like mineral rights from mining comets? When we have arms races to see who can get to an asteroid first to lay claim to it? Good stuff.
