Claim: “Every Cause wants to become a Cult.” (Eliezer Yudkowksy)
Truth: “Upper class cults are but a cover for a swingers club” (Spandrell)
Claim: The rationalist community is about Overcoming Bias.
Truth: “Everyone I know fears the truth in their private lives. We all want to live delusion that we are something more/better/greater/more powerful than we actually are and most people become extreamlly hostile when you’re blunt and honest with them” (Red)
“Haha, how about those girls who say they prefer to be ‘one of the guys’ or that most of their friends are male, huh? Isn’t that always a huge warning sign?”
I see this so often, most recently on Reddit. “Never trust a girl who doesn’t have female friends” or “They don’t get along with other girls because they themselves are usually bitches”, just to choose two comments from the thread on this pressing issue.
Well, I’m the male version of this. Most of my friends are girls. This is none of your business. And if a girl does the same thing, that’s none of your business either.”
1. Girls can make friends with whoever the f@#k they want.
2. Go to hell.
For 2200 years, the proper attitude of a civilized man has been “Homo sum, humani nihil a me alienum puto“. The rationalists, as all other leftists, want you to close your eyes, cover your ears and ignore reality so you stop noticing they are running a swingers club.
