“One reasonable way to interpret this is to split is right down the reproductive line. Men worry about their wives being impregnated by other men (and thus raising another man's baby.) Women never have that worry. So men worry more about their wives/partners having sex, and women more about their men abandoning them to have babies with someone else.”

“I was also thinking along those lines. Some aspects of our nature are deeply ingrained into our psychology.”

“Most importantly, anyone who doesn't want pot legal should campaign against alcohol and tobacco, which are far more damaging. If they don't they are hypocrites. If they drink or smoke cigarettes but hold out for pot being illegal, they are addicts protecting their own drug while destroying the lives of others, and beneath contempt.”

“It is fascinating the number of people who claim that Huffpro, or "liberal news" is "spinning" the story...then take the word of the accused, rather than the facts as we know them. They quote Zimmerman's explanation as truth: "it was self defense" rather than "he claimed self defense." Or the officer's explanation as "it was a non-shooting scenario" rather than "he claimed it was a non-shooting scenario." Taking a side in the argument is one thing. Doing it while claiming "no spin" or impartiality is simply being dishonest.

'Django Unchained' Slavery Depictions Not Nearly As Bad As Real History Says Quentin Tarantino

Commented Dec 9, 2012 at 09:59:00 in Entertainment

“From time to time someone will talk about "legal protections" for American slaves. Fine. Please post the evidence that any white person was ever CONVICTED AND JAILED for the murder of a slave. No, not the destruction of another white man's property. Murder. Jailed, not "tried" or "arrested." Unless you can demonstrate that there were actual substantive sentences for murder, then you have to admit that there were no effective protections. All the blather you want about people protecting "their property" is nonsense when you consider that the SPCA exists precisely because people abuse their living property. Child Protective Services exists precisely because people abuse their own families. Don't even try to suggest that, absent legal protections for murder (let alone rape) the very palest aspects of human nature would not crawl to the surface and explode. Don't even try.

“It is absurd that Johnny Depp was cast to play Tonto. If they wanted him as a star, they should have cast him as the Ranger, and had an actual Native American in the Tonto role. "Last Airbender", "Iron Man 3" (Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin) and this suggest a new era of yellowface. Unless and until Asian or Native American actors are put in makeup to play white people, this should be seen as what it is--bowing in respect to racism.

“It amuses me that Conservatives say liberals are anti-Corporate, but then say that the media, which is all Corporate, is liberal. What are they saying, that these corporations are suicidal? That Conservatives don't care enough about informing the public that they would become reporters (or teachers?). No. More likely the "Liberal Media" meme is a great way to simply ignore what a moderate, centrist media reports. Also, the further you are to the Right, the more the middle seems to be to the Left. It's a fascinating experiment in human perception.

“Considering how few movies have ever been made that depict slavery from the slave's POV (most deal with post-slavery, pre-slavery, etc.) I suspect there is GIGANTIC emotional resistance, especially on the part of people who want to believe it was a relatively benign institution with little impact on the descendants. Meanwhile, a related event of 2% of its duration (The Civil War) has been depicted countless times. Oh, the apologists are going to try to poison the well. It won't work. Tarantino is just bizarre enough to actually succeed.

“He was the first great writer who ever encouraged me to believe in myself. Met him several times--he guested on my radio show, and at a symposium I taught at U.C.L.A. Was never anything but a gentleman and an inspiration. The last time I saw him I was asked to give a tribute for (I think) his 85th birthday at Universal Sheraton. I spoke of his kindness in reading two of my stories and responding with encouragement, of sitting at dinner with him and Larry Niven, of him believing that I had my best writing days ahead of me. I cried. He was in his wheelchair, suffering from stroke, and we hugged. He wrote me one last time, thanking me for my tribute, saying: "some of your tears are my own."
What a wonderful spirit. I loved him.
