yup.

I lolled when I read this, because I read this like an hour ago:

when I was trying to find out who first suggested the Airport Bayless place.

Turns out you can actually see into the future!

Is Paula Deen really getting canned for admitting that she said the N-Word privately 30 years ago?

The internet outrage thing is turning into a dangerous double edged sword.

Sometimes it catches up with things that deserved internet outrage (The steubenville rape thing didn't need so much public coverage, but it kind of sounds like the city was going to let it slide if the internet hadn't been outraged), but other things are pretty troublesome.

Paula Deen may suck...but this is a shitty way to screw up someone's life. Similar thing goes for that whole Kickstarter "Sexual Assualt Handbook" thing where a couple out of out-of-context quotes and an inflammatory headline are on the way to screwing over some poor PUA nerd's offline life (the "put her hand on your cock" quote that drew so much ire...was from a post describing what to do once you're already in bed, half naked, and ready to bone but the feminists fighting it made it sound like it was something you do to a girl in the back of a bar).

the outrage squad is working overtime lately. They also got a kickstarter campaign shut down for some pua book that was making feminists mad

And this Paula Deen thing is part of a blatant shakedown by the sexual harassment attorney. The woman suing is white and none of that stuff is remotely relevant.
