I'm not interested in women myself, but I'm often surprised by the kind of woman guys are into when it comes to relationships. I can't imagine myself marrying someone I don't respect, and yet a lot…Continue
I didn’t notice this section before, so I guess I will post in here since I haven't posted much yet. In case anyone is wondering, "J. Exalto" is a pseudonym that comes from a name I found in my…Continue
"I generally think of my self as rational, and I've never been the least bit superstitious. But death has always bothered me a lot, way more than it should. And it's not a fear of dying, but it's after the death occurs that…"
"Technically true, but beside the point: the clear implication is that the racism, in this instance, is wrong. Which it's not; dating someone you're not attracted to out of some sense of social justice or whatever doesn't seem…"
"This reminds of me of something I've encountered among gay men. If you go on a dating site or hook-up app such as Grindr, you will see a lot of profiles that will explicitly exclude certain types of guys, such as Black men, Asians,…"
"Grad school I can definitely understand, but as long as you're taking a common major (and if you're not, I guess you'd have to assess whether or not that is worth the extra expense).

"Some elements of the right tend to think in terms of an idealized society in which there is no such political power or media control, and I'm sympathetic to that view myself. I doubt it's actually attainable, but I'd argue…"
"Speaking in broad generalizations, I think the left and the alt-right use essentially the same definition of political correctness, which is different from that used by the right. The former definition involves not using derogatory language…"
"This is a major reason it's such a shame that people tend to view people with different (but still mainstream) political views as enemies. If anyone should be considered an enemy, it's this guy (and his followers). People on…"
"I wouldn't say liberalism is the same thing as unrestrained capitalism. I'm a classical liberal, so I tend to be sympathetic to capitalism, but I would also acknowledge that some regulations are necessary and pure capitalism…"
"That's interesting. I've realized that on a subcouncsious level, I consider skills like knowing how to start a fire or change a tire to be more important than knowing how to cook or clean. The latter are obviously more…"

"A. It sounds like you don't even believe me. My parents immigrated from Ghana, in West Africa. B. I never specifically singled out Asian men, but it is obvious with the Hallyu wave that this has sort of conversation has been brought up…"
