    Morning [chat] folks. Had my testing last night and passed. :D I am now a red/black belt so in a few months I'll be testing for black belt. Overall the test went great except for me flubbing on my paper cutting the first time. Nailed it on my second try and our grand master made a joke of being nervous even though I had done lots of cutting in front of people during our demos. Also complimented me saying I was a leader for the class which was...really nice to hear.

    This new understanding of social justice politics resembles what University of Pennsylvania political science professor Adolph Reed Jr. calls a politics of personal testimony, in which the feelings of individuals are the primary or even exclusive means through which social issues are understood and discussed. Reed derides this sort of political approach as essentially being a non-politics, a discourse that "is focused much more on taxonomy than politics [which] emphasizes the names by which we should call some strains of inequality [ ... ] over specifying the mechanisms that produce them or even the steps that can be taken to combat them." Under such a conception, people become more concerned with signaling goodness, usually through semantics and empty gestures, than with actually working to effect change.

    I am in love with this Vox article.

    I agree very strongly with this article. It is very easy to find the right words to use to seem progressive in the new social justice while ignoring all the substantive issues. I suspect there are tons of people that feel they are very progressive and enlightened solely because they are "good" enough to use the right words to avoid offense, despite doing nothing to actually change the status quo, or even neccesarikit wanting it to change.

    I would have to read the Vox article, but part of the emphasis on language, to me, seems because our world is far more textual than it was 50 years ago. Almost all of our communication is done via text. Language absolutely frames issues in important ways, and mastery of that is a pretty key skill in today's world.

    Article isn't talking about that.

    It is more the focus on identity above all else and that the idea that one must not offend groups no matter the idea. It is less about the use of language you are talking about.

    I love that people have clung to that argument considering how those same people kept telling me to change it and I was eventually banned for it.

    But no, fonts do not matter.

    You seem to be projecting. The author is venting about people who know the right words to signal substance-agnostic emotional outrage, not about people who avoid offending others by use of politically correct words.

    Dude, you don't even know. My FLCS in Boulder had all of the back issues for the series. I bought issue #1 - all the way through the end of the Brubaker run for something like $70 at the time (I also had most of it in hardcover for easier reading). Daredevil, under the hands of Bendis and Brubaker was consistently the best comic book that Marvel had been putting out for more than 10 years. It was so much bigger than a superhero comic and the way that Alex Maleev and Michael Lark brought Marvel's NYC to life is, in my opinion, unrivaled in visual storytelling.

    And then Andy Diggle comes in flushes everything down the toilet in like 3 issues.

    I was so mad I sold everything.

    Those aren't equivalent to space marine infantry. Let's compare something of matching size: $116 for six.
