One thing I love about chatting with Srinivas Rao is that he selects + lists the "highlights" of your conversation. This allows you to scan all these interesting-sounding points you apparently made + be totally impressed with yourself.

Thank you Srini.

"When people give you their bullshit reason for doing something always assume they are giving you a good reason but not the real reason."
I'm on a war against bullshit. Not other people's bullshit. That war is unwinnable. Everyone lives in their own private bullshitorium and they will never leave it even to say “hello” to you. But my own bullshit. I can't stand when I'm thinking or saying something and then I realize, ...

"Scott very passionately wants to debate that nerds don’t have “male privilege” and that nerdy guys are the victims, not perpetrators, of sexism. He is arguing this to a commenter posting under the name “Amy,” who argues that shy, nerdy guys are in fact plenty dangerous on the grounds that she has been raped by a shy, nerdy boyfriend, and that in her life experience around shy, nerdy guys she’s seen plenty of shy, nerdy guys commit harassment and assault and use their shy nerdiness as a shield against culpability for it.

To be blunt, Scott’s story is about Scott himself spending a lot of time by himself hating himself. When he eventually stops hating himself and, as an older, more mature nerd, asks women out, no women mace him, slap him or ritually humiliate him — instead he ends up with a girlfriend who ends up becoming a wife. So far, so typical.

Amy’s story is about being harassed and groped by men in the tech world and, eventually, being raped by a shy, nerdy guy she thought she trusted. So far, so also typical.

What’s the biggest difference between Scott’s and Amy’s stories? Scott’s story is about things that happened inside his brain. Amy’s story is about actual things that were done to her by other people against her will, without her control.

And Scott, and his commenters, are treating the two as worthy of equivalent degrees of scrutiny.

This isn’t a new or unique instance of this kind of blind spot going on. We all know about the Gamergate firestorm where a bunch of anonymous guys on the Internet felt harassed and insulted by an article making general criticisms about “gamer culture” as a whole and deciding to react by harassing specific, individual women, including calling a SWAT team to someone’s house, and treating it as though these two things are equivalent."

I did mean that and I think it's okay, is a good thing. In the past it wasn't called rape, and in many parts of the world, it's still not, that's the point. A man had the right to force sex on his wife. Many men still think they do. Many women still think they do. That a man isn't a man unless he goes for it full bore. (-:)>+

I heart Amy because she's funny as hell.
From "Last F**kable Day" to "Realistic Military Video Game," Schumer has nailed it time and time again VIDEO

"In the course of the years a close friendship will always reveal the shadow in the other as much as ourselves,

to remain friends we must know the other and their difficulties and even their sins and encourage the best in them,

not through critique but through addressing the better part of them,
the leading creative edge of their incarnation,

thus subtly discouraging what makes them smaller, less generous, less of themselves."

Guys - are you feeling left out of the "ridiculously silly and impractical" Halloween costume market? Never fear.

I’ve struggled with self-esteem, and I’m increasingly aware of those places in my life where I “gave away my power” by looking outside myself for validation and authority.

I have played small. I hide out.

As I get older it becomes more important for me to understand why – especially given my ambitious, competitive streak, or what my ex-husband always referred to as the fire in my soul: “You,” he once told me, “are no lamb.”
