A man (Elon Green [no relation]) writing on behalf of a female-dominated industry (publishing) went to extraordinary lengths to vilify a man with life-threatening mental illness. Green further leveled a classic right-wing disparagement (failing to monetize one’s intelligence) in an article that, one can only assume, enriched Green’s coffers very little.

When confronted with the structural issue of a female-dominated profession lambasting a male writer for his alleged sins against two women and, further, with the wanton cruelty of attacking an already-suicidal person, Green did what bullies do: He ran.

The social-justice warrior’s cries of sexism, as readily at hand as those of racism and about as well founded, do not justify worsening actual health or threatening human life.

I really like my pictures; my homosexualist-lock-screens project is what I am most proud of in living memory; this personal Weblog is an absolute cultural treasure.

And, last but not least, I don’t like you, either.
