    Nothing Jordan Peterson says will ever be interesting to me. He's one of those massive sacks of shit who bitches about social justice warriors, says we should defund women's studies, and bemoans the supposed decline of masculinity. He's awful.

    Did anyone else catch this? It actually moved me quite a bit.

    He believes in Christ but can’t work out why, and cries in one part. Worth watching if you have five minutes.

    Yeah, he's pretty awful. Someone used to tell me that I should try listening to people from the other side of the fence, and recommended I try reading his book.

    It's terrifying that people take his shit seriously. He started ranting about lobster mating rituals at first, and eventually moved on to advocating in favour of child abuse.

    He's a terrible human being.

    I draw no pride from being in the same town as Peterson (let alone completing an entire four-year undergrad degree in the University that employs him). His whole vibe of "it's not that you are oppressed, you just have a bad attitude" is disingenuous at best, and gaslighting at worst. He is the most awful kind of 'public intellectual': one who takes deplorable arguments that do active harm to vulnerable people, and turns them into acceptable-sounding pabulum that plays well on television chat shows and clickbait videos. A very useful person... for anyone who wants to justify bullying, social shaming, and ultimately, laws that cause deaths. And his army of supporters are the absolute worst, so I hope they don't find this thread and decide to fuck with the community we have here.

    Perhaps this is more gross than interesting, so please observe the disclaimer before clicking on this very NSFW link featuring a lonely monkey:

    OK, that article is all over the place. I'm sitting here thinking, "they found one while I was in high school, didn't they? Have I been Berenstained?" but then right there in the article they talk about how they've found the fish several times in the past century. So what kind of headline is that?

    I believe I fell victim to clickbait.
