    Don't worry guys, you sure as progressive and tolerant as you think you are.

    a lot of people get teased on here, dude. the "anguished artist" is a pretty well-worn trope. try not to take yourself so seriously. don't you do standup?

    The original joke wasn't aimed at me, and you thinking that it would need to be for me to be offended by it is weird.

    "Get a thicker skin" isn't the answer to everything.

    Apo, did you see my comment yesterday about translation of French philosophers?

    i have been comparing some translations to original French and I feel like academics doing translation is... injecting a surprising level of obscurantism
    I did not.

    But then I also recall Sokal and Bricmont's Fashionable Nonsense which made no such observations on the subject.

    So I am surprised.

    pretty much everyone in here has a mental illness of some description

    @Evil Multifarious‌ I find the field of translation fascinating for a lot of reasons. If you're reading a translation of a poem, for example, the chances of that person speaking the language with anything that would be called fluency is very, very slim. In fact, the worst translations are often done by people who have a deep understanding of the language, but no understanding of literature.

    I'm not sure if this is the same for philosophy texts, but, having a passing familiarity with some , I imagine it helps tremendously to know just as much about literature as it does the language.

    [Chat] might be more focused on trans issues than any other thing ever. Depression/mental illness is probably the third biggest obsession after unemployment. tbh its pretty doctrinaire, its just the ideology is (unevenly) tolerant and overall much more enlightened than most dogmas. Issue threads tend to be better. Chat is usually better when the topic is either not ideological or visited infrequently enough that there aren't "established acceptable positions." Jokes about genitals and gentrification are what chat is for IMO.

    Why everything gotta revolve around white dick?

    Borges said, in regards to translations of his work, "Translate what I want to say, not what I'm saying," which I think is pretty good advice. I remember reading about John Ashbery getting contacted about the difficulty of translating his work into French. He was often being told that there was no possible way to express what he was trying to say to which he replied, Those are often the things I'm most interested in saying."

    A 49-year-old unidentified man went berserk last night, opening fire with a 12-gauge shotgun in a crowded downtown restaurant... Fighting broke out overnight between rival factions along the Israeli-Syrian border. Initial reports claim the Israeli fighters bombed a guerrilla base.

    i looked up her linkedin tho i guess her background is a PhD in American Cultural History at Brown
