Dear Americans,

Why do you censor “goddamn”?

Are you five?

Sincerely,
Fucking Everyone.

Maybe it’s a religious thing? Christians believe you shouldn’t take the Lord’s name in vain, Jews have a specific rule against saying G*d at all.

I have not seen an instance of “goddamn” being explicitly expunged in quite a while. This may be due to my particular cultural bubble, but typically constructions of the form “[letter]**[letter|*]” are limited to newspaper comment sections, and written by net-illiterate populations.

My (entirely descriptive, you toadfuckers) understanding of acceptable language tiers in American English is as follows:

  1. Unoffensive; anything which does not fall into a narrower category. Required for little kid shows and most PR statements.
  2. Potentially Rude; “suck”, “crap”, minor scatology, a variety of euphemistic versions of higher categories. Also known as the “Shrek Discontinuity”. You may be able to get away with this on kids’ TV if you have network pull!
  3. Polite Society Limit; “damn”, “hell”, “ass” [but not ‘asshole’], “bastard”, and a number of miscellaneous near-swears. Typical of news media and the maximum of conversation with people you’ve known for about an hour.
  4. Kulturkampf Frontline; a semantic shift more than a syntactic shift. Pretty much anything goes, as long as you don’t use an explicitly forbidden word. Moderate sexual terms [‘balls’, ‘wang’] and gendered insults [‘bitch’] appear at the low end of the spectrum. This is a fairly recent divide from 3, and still somewhat fuzzy. Network politics may apply.
  5. Hollywood Push; due to bizarre historical circumstances [i.e. Steven Spielberg and grandfathered 70s flicks], the word ‘shit’ (and perhaps ‘asshole’) gets a tier all to itself. PG-13 movies (but not T-rated video games) also get one or two instances of the word ‘fuck’, in an explicitly non-sexual context, if you haven’t offended Chris Dodd recently.
  6. Anything Goes; you can finally freely use the word ‘fuck’, and any of its variations, ‘dick’, ‘pussy’, ‘cunt’, etc.

Where racial epithets fit into this is much more complicated, as it is often contextual and not as binary.

Does Obama Believe He Should Have Gone to Prison?

As President Obama has admitted since long before entering politics, he’s done his fair share of illegal drugs. In his 1995 book, Dreams From My Father, he wrote that he’d used marijuana and “maybe a little blow”. Despite this, he continues to oversee a federal war against others who’ve done the same…

Of course, Obama does not wish that he went to prison. He does not believe that his life would have gone better, or that his community’s failure to lock him up presented a social problem. Nor does he regret that the criminal justice system never made an example out of him.

However, countless other people have not had his luck. They have lived through the endless torture he would he would have lived through, had he been caught. When asked on the Tonight Show whether or not he’d grant some of them the grace he’d been given by legalizing marijuana, he laughed.

To paraphrase libertarian entertainer Penn Jillette’s forceful response to the incident: this is not a joke.

It is unclear why Zimmerman was visiting Ferguson, when he arrived, or where in town he was staying. Police say the teens will be allowed to release the full video to the public after their investigation is complete.”

!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve been watching this guy’s livestreams for a few days now. He’s super positive and really nice to all his viewers, answering everything he can. Also considering his abilities he is really good at Diablo III and WoW. Like the fact that I could have been playing WoW with people like him and getting my ass handed to me by them is part of the reason I appreciate video games as a form of therapy.

"I’m really feeling good about myself!"

This makes me SO happy. Amazing!

I sometimes get this feeling that, pre-photography, illustrations of animals were interpreted with the same sense of credibility as a medieval bestiary.

just precisely how bad was 1500s jerusalem at making maps, you ask? well,

There needs to be a unit of measure or a ratio for just how wrong a map is when compared to an Equirectangualar projection. because I think this map right here may be the most useless map in the history of cartography.

World maps before the 1600s or so were mostly intended as a sort of cosmological model. The “T and O” map, of which this is a variant, was designed to place Jerusalem in the metaphysical center of the universe.

Will Misogyny Bring Down The Atheist Movement?

I’m sort of disappointed by this article.

Not only did it erase me… again, but it contributed to Shermer indirectly mentioning my allegation as a ‘hoax’.

But that is less of the concerning part compared to the operative motive behind the article: framing the sexual assault crisis in skepticism through an ideological lens.

e.g. Penn Jillette being vulgar in his particular context is equivocated to people who literally drugged and raped several victims. This is problematic.

It is trying to score points for one “side” of the movement. This sort of thing is exactly why allegations don’t go anywhere; they get inherently politicized, and it leads to bitter gloating and rebukes without anything actually getting done.

It’s exactly the situation I was hoping could be avoided.

If in, say, five years or so, we get Atheism Plus and Atheism Light conferences, and rape happens at both, because this is an institutional problem and both institutions are self-justifying husks of internecine fighting, I’m going to cry.
