A mathematician may have uncovered widespread election fraud in Kansas, and now Kansas is trying to silence her. submitted by gbj1301 to news

The professional tone of her writing makes me happy. It looks like the politicians are going to have a lot of trouble discrediting her.

Feminist professor says people who ask for proof of rape culture aren't human submitted by WorldTraveler77 to news

PainTree 1 points 39 points (+40|-1) ago

Actually, we do live in a rape culture. Everyone is sensitive and hostile to rape, rape makes headlines, false rape accusations rape innocent people's lives, rape 'education' is spreading like crazy, men are scared to have sex with consenting girls for fear of rape charges — the list goes on and on.

Perhaps it was debatable whether we had rape culture before, but now the feminists have indisputably brought rape culture upon us.

This depends on a few factors.

The risk of contracting HIV from an infected partner in receptive anal sex is estimated to be 1.4% per act

The average duration for sex is 7.3 minutes. Since these men are fucking continuously I will count each 7.3 minutes of fucking as one round of sex.

The last factor is how long it takes for an infected person to become contagious. We will assume the initial HIV infected subject is already contagious. For the other seven fuckers, unfortunately, there is not enough data on HIV to pinpoint a specific time where we would expect infected subjects become infectious. Clearly by 3-4 weeks, the disease is contagious, since HIV viral counts peak in semen after 3-4 weeks and peaks in blood 17 days after infection (For those who don't know, in receptive ass fucking, HIV spreads via blood and semen). However a subject can be expected to be infectious well before these peaks have occurred. As you can see, due to the different peaks for blood and semen, whether or not these ass fuckers use a lot of lube and whether these guys are fucking gently (both would minimize bleeding) can change the results drastically. We will have to adapt our analysis to account for this.

With the basics established, onto the calculations.

With a transmission rate of 1.4% and an average length of 7.3 minutes per session, after 213 receptive anal sessions with an infectious partner, (1554.9 minutes, or about 1 day) there is a 95.0% chance that the subject has been infected. After 327 sessions (2387.1 minutes), the chance is 99.0%. Technically, the subject would need to have sex infinitely long before there is a 100% chance of infection. We're not fucking idiots, so depending on how certain you want to be, at either 95% or 99%, you can be sufficiently certain the subject has contracted the infection. I will calculate for 95%, since it doesn't make a difference in the end whether we use 95% or 99% (see footnote*).

It will take 7 infections before all eight men in the gay train are infected. Then if subjects become infectious immediately after being infected, we expected it to make 1554.9(7) = 10884.3 minutes, or 7.55 days for all men to become infected.* Now, as we stated before, the upper limit for how it would take for a guy to become infectious is four weeks (28 days). Adding in how long it would take the six guys in the middle to become infectious, it would take at most 7.55 + 28(6) days = 175.55 days, or 5.77 months for all the men to be infected with HIV.

Let's look at blood as a vector of transmission. You would think this is reasonable, since there's probably a shit-ton of bleeding on both their penises and their anuses from the continuous sex, but as I said before, I'm not sure. This is OP's magical world where they'll somehow be able to piss and shit while fucking and being fucked in the ass. Anyway, blood viral loads peak at 17 days, but at peak load, the infected person has at least 100 times higher virus load than the declining final load (see figure 2, and note it's log(10), not linear). Since the final load level is still infectious, and the same study notes the viral count doubled about .65 days, it follows that the fucker was still infectious four days prior to the peak viral count, or thirteen days. We are conservatively shaving off these days, so we are still overestimating how long it takes to become infectious. With this new number, it would take at most 7.55 + 13(6) days = 85.55 days, or ~2.8 months for all the men to be infected with HIV.

In conclusion, it would take a couple of months. Unfortunately, we do not have to data to give an exact answer. However, "2-3 months" is a reasonable approximation, and it certainly would not take longer than half a year.

*At 99%, it would take 11.6 days for the eighth guy to be infected, rather than 7.55. Since this is only a four day difference, it's negligible.

The idea of free speech is that you can hold an unpopular opinion without being censored. Using the majority's "free speech" to silence a minority is censorship by majority rule, even if the censorship is accomplished by "free speech."

I put 'free speech' in quotes because downvotes are not an exercise in freedom of speech. More like exercise in silencing. A downvoat decreases the visibility of a post, and in she's case, her ability to speak at all. Also, downvotes are far from "the only recourse they have." Atko did not do something about AskVoat because she was voted down into oblivion. It was because Voat users exercised what actually constitutes freedom of speech: speaking. They got the administration's attention by making posts calling for reform and complaining. Downvotes accomplished nothing, other than letting users do unto she the very thing the users abhorred.

Lastly, in referring to she, you say "You have done something that people don't like and they don't want you there." Fat People Hate migrated to Voat because the reddit userbase and administration did not want them there, and reddit acted on their distaste. Voat is doing the same thing to she. It reflects poorly on this site. Voat is also imitating another distasteful remnant of reddit: brigading. A perfectly good post she made in the past is has now degraded in quality because of something she said in the future? Bullshit. The downvotes are not her fault. It's the voters' fault. They don't like her, so like a child, they cover her mouth in tape.

I urge you to reconsider your position. Perhaps she does deserve to lose her position as a mod, but certainly not her basics rights as a user. If someone robs your house, you seek retribution through the justice system. You do not rob their house in return.

A TIL mod loses his shit on /r/undelete, bans users from TIL for daring to question mod deletions submitted by SuperConductiveRabbi to MeanwhileOnReddit

From the archived link, the mod says he deleted the thread because OP did not properly cite a source. The first rule in the sub is: "Submissions must be verifiable. Please link directly to a reliable source that supports every claim in your post title."

OP links to the wrong section of the McDonald's wiki article. And even if you do find the relevant passage elsewhere on the page, it's marked "Unreliable source?" And unfortunately, the text does not support every claim OP makes in his TIL post

So it looks like the mod was justified, and everyone else is being an ass. The mod is getting picked on because he uses too many words =(. It still reflect poorly on reddit's users, albeit the people going "I'm not reading!" instead of the mod.

Good sourcing makes a decent difference in the sub's quality; it's not 'meaningless minutia.' A source that requires the reader to dig and then read a different article is a poor source. There are many TIL posts in the sub, which is why the mods want an easy way to fact check.

McJob is not as widely known as you construe it. It is relatively obscure. A google search for "McJob" yields only 213,000 results. For comparison, Poisson Distribution has 959,000 results, Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy has 310,000, and Voat has 468,000. Looking at results for slang terms that are actually widely used: Bling (73,100,000), dawg (24,100,000), Curb Job (59,800,000)

There is absolutely no way this outcome would have been acceptable to professional editors in a real publication. It's the kind of 'throwing the baby out with the bathwater' over-literal insanity only the Asperger's inflicted could conceive as rational.

It's not throwing out the baby with the bath water. You could make the same argument for any shitty post that breaks a sub's rules. As for your conspiracy theory, I'm calling bullshit. I don't recall McDonalds ever being a partner of reddit. Your baseless accusation makes you seem like a nutcase hellbent on slamming reddit even if it means disregarding logic and truth.

Edit: Google search for "Mc Job" yields 151,000,000 results.
