Commented on Bill Cosby Rape Allegations

The problem is, as the person immediately above me pointed out, at least one of the women has come out with evidence. Yet for every article reporting on the evidence, the comments unanimously agree they must have been falsified, with the rationale being that, since there was no rape, there cannot be any evidence (circular reasoning, as it’s called).

We cannot say someone lacks proof just because the provided evidence hasn’t been verified yet. That sort of thinking is precisely why it takes so long for these cases to come up, because people are (rightfully) afraid that the public will demonize them for challenging a popular figure. If they are proven to be liars, it will be acceptable to vilify them, but as of now it is no one’s place to call them anything.

And this goes for both of you, condemning rape is not an attack on men’s rights. Stop conflating real issues with what deranged nobodies have to say on their blogs.

Commented on Bill Cosby Rape Allegations

Can I just say, there’s a worrying trend in these comments? When it comes to Cosby, people are so quick to defend him as not having necessarily done anything, which is entirely acceptable since he hasn’t been tried or given a verdict yet.

But for those making the claims, we’re already convinced they’re liars, attentions whores, thieves, sluts, and every other put down? We might not have any reason to doubt Cosby, but neither do we have reason to doubt them. If they really were raped, then what will you have to say for yourselves?

This is precisely the sort of attitude towards rape that the so-called “social justice warriors” warn us against, yet every time a major rape case comes up there’s a clear dichotomy of “let’s hear the accused out first” and “the accusers are fucking liars”.

Commented on Alternate fan version

Short answer: no, it’s a fan drawing
Long answer: no, not yet, but the domain for the anime has recently been purchased and is being worked on by an unknown source. Only time will tell if it’s official.

Commented on Ants on Stilts

Ants are commonly thought to have something like a hivemind, leading people to wonder if collective intelligence is possible among more complex organism. As such, biologists are doing their best to either prove or disprove this theory, and are willing to try anything to explain the phenomenon.

Commented on Monster Musume / Daily Life with Monster Girl

Now that the comic has broke the Top 25 on Manga Here and has sold at least one million copies, I have revised the article. I have also provided examples of fan art and reaction images that I came across over the past day, showing a larger following than previously thought.

A word of warning, though: do not search “Miia” on tumblr. By coincidence, it’s a tag used by the Pro-Anorexia movement (apparently it’s short for bulimia), and browsing the tag will reveal hundreds of photos of women in near-skeletal states, with the captions revealing they still consider themselves too fat. It’s enough to make one sick.
