Yeah. He was pretty misogynistic on here but after leaving he went pretty far out there.

He was nice when we met up for a tegan and sara show in 2007 (when i was in my mid 20s) but slowly i could see the bitterness towards women (because of that ex maybe? Remember her?) morph into this amalgam of terrible opinions.

I realized it was bad because like a year after the election he was STILL posting anti Hillary stuff. Like, you can not like her but to out of the blue make a post about how, even with Trump being a dumpster fire, you still wouldn't have voted for her. It comes across as woman-hating tbh

I've been told that he was engaged but she wanted him to stop drinking and doing coke and a bunch of netphorians encouraged him to ditch her so he did.

The thing I remember about Toby is him posting about booking a prostitute and then posting like an hour later saying “Prostitute has been. Nut: busted.” , or something like that, shortly afterwards.

But....maybe I just like dreamed it or something.

just found out a kid i knew growing up died a couple months ago after a 13 year struggle with an eating disorder, and her little sister lost a leg after being hit by a drunk driver after an underage drinking party they both attended about 4 years ago. that poor mom.

I don't remember anyone encouraging him and she may have asked that he stop drinking and coking, but he definitely came on here whining about how she essentially ghosted him - left, went back to her parents, wouldn't talk to him etc.

I mean, don't feel bad - he posted a topless picture of her without her knowledge

Toby was my friend and I had fun with him IRL but yeah his anti blackness (I use this instead of racism since he's latinx) was insanely gross and he randomly just started hating me one day and deleted me on FB and banned me from the board group...this was not long after my coming out, weird coincidence!!

I mean by the actual definition of racism its really much more accurate since I wouldn't say latinx people hold power over black people no, it pprobably is not stupid but you've probably never put any thought into it

You don't need to hold power over a group of people to be racist. You are stupid.

And I never tidy my room. It's a shithole.

Language changes over time, and "racist" now implies a position of power and privilege over another race so I simply have chosen to use different terminology which you immediately just dismiss as stupi

Very open minded discourse from the Jordan Petersen boy

No it doesn't. Racist means racist. It means you look down on or dislike a particular race. It has nothing to do with having power over them, it's how you treat them.

There was a Hispanic woman working at a Taco Bell in Florida a month or so ago and she was sacked for being racist.

No I'm not saying it doesn't. However what you're saying changed did not change in the way you describe.

I mean, yes, it has. I can't link to anything that you wouldn't automatically dismiss, though. I mean maybe. I dunno.

https://radicalscholarship.wordpress...d-about-power/

I mean hypothetically a "minority" population could hold more power over another (see: Asians/Indians being held up as a "model minority" in comparison to black/latinx people) but it just seems easier and cleaner and makes more sense to call crackers racist and use "anti-black/etc" when describing someone like Toby

like that link consistently uses the word "privilege" and part of the reason i won't stop hammering the JP thing is that you probably dismiss that white/male/straight/cis/etc privilege is something that actually exists so we're both at a stalemate

not a new concept at all

(ok since you're probably extremely pedantic: yes 40 years ago is very recent relative to the entirety of the history of language, whatever)
