    It's actually interesting how the Simpsons are pretty much universally perceived as white even though their appearances have almost nothing in common with RL white people. Goes to show how much whiteness is cultural construct.

    That reminds me, has anyone read yesterday's Toronto Star article about Peterson? Very interesting stuff.

    I love how daddy's little princes are probably already harrassing and doxing that man's daughter. Way to thank a dude for housing your sleazy cult ass for five months.

    Hmm. While I agree with the general point of the article you linked to, I don't think its criticism of Schiff is entirely fair. His article was never meant as a purely abstract analysis of Peterson's ideas but an autobiographical account of Schiff's relationship with this very complex, flawed man. To critique it for lacking "objectivity" or focusing on Peterson's character instead of his ideas is kind of missing the point IMO.

    'complex' and 'flawed' is not how you argue against a cult leader. There is nothing 'complex' about him, except maybe his methods of sucking people in and his ways of eeling out of any substantial discussion with anyone who could dismantle his arguments completely, ie any expert in any field he lies about.

    The dude has the right to write his personal account but it doesn't exist in a vacuum.

    Plus, not to belabor a point the article already makes, Schiff really does write as if Peterson not conforming to the university's supposed standards is worse than him attacking the social status of trans people, when really, shouldn't it be the other way around?
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot)
    - A duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) (Lemon) - Shirou and Shinji finally acknowledge their feelings.
    He Was a Good King (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A short exploration of Beowulf's character as a hero and a king.

    Every human alive is "complex", so I don't agree with that point at all. Also I'd dispute whether the article is really as ineffectual as Robinson claims. My friend who barely knew about Peterson before yesterday read it and came away with a strongly negative impression of him (as in, probably more negative then Schiff himself).

    Idiots aren't complex they're just idiots. I don't have an ounce of sympathy to spare for someone who considers me subhuman and preys on people's insecurities with his hateful ideology for money and social media likes.

    I mean, Hitler was complex too. Recognizing that he's dangerous and needs to be stopped and recognizing he's a complex person who can be insightfully analyzed aren't mutually exclusive, you know.

    So by the transitive property you're going to start telling me that Peterson has only one testicle in a couple of posts.

    Don't worry, he's got enough people worshipping the ground he nervously paces on, me being pissy won't hurt him.

    He wants 25k to debate Žižek, I wonder if his sexual memoirs would be an extra goodie for the elite lob.
