Actually quite on board with rooting out pedos and gropers but trying to ruin someone's career over 20-year-old obvious satire because he called some reporter frumpy-looking seems a bit silly.

This is a metaphor, a Christian allegory. The fact that I have to explain to you that Jesus is the Warthog, and the Banana is drepanocytosis is just embarrassing for you.

Also it seems like Ames was responsible for like 95% of the more objectionable content but Taibbi is more famous so he's the one we need to pearl-clutch about, apparently

Yeah it was admittedly pretty clumsy satire but loving obviously satire nonetheless.

But he called some WaPo reporter "matronly" and she's obviously so stung about it that 20 years later she's writing a #MeToo column about it so we should definitely ruin his career now even though he's one of the better and more entertaining journalists working

The other guys involved were pretty sharp and self-aware but Mark Ames was and is the 40-year-old balding guy who inexplicably still hangs around the frathouse and tries to party with the pledges

Yeah I'm a dude so it's going to come out sounding concern-trolly coming from me, but oh well: It's absolutely bullshit to lump someone calling you ugly in with someone holding you down and jerking off into a potted plant. Give me a loving break.

holy poo poo journalism is garbage

i just tried to read that and eventually just dozed off in a haze of not caring about her huge set up for how hard it is to be insulted, like every human ever born hasn't heard a joke about their appearance, then some fucker ive never heard of, then russia, then a book the abortion threats or death threats or some poo poo

like four pages in and there's no coherent topic other than 'im mad and doing poorly at getting other people to join me'

I like the part at the end where she says "you don't have to have actually had something bad happen to you in order to be part of the #MeToo" movement.

Uh, I thought the whole point was that you did have to actually be the victim of harassment?
