As a general observation, dumping a video in the middle of a thread and expecting people to watch it is lazy. If you’re not prepared to take the time to explain what you got out of it, and why you think the points raised are reasonable, you shouldn’t expect anyone else to take the time to look at it. If you think the content is worthwhile, it’s your responsibility to highlight the aspects of it you think make it so; otherwise discussion devolves into a war of attrition where whoever has the most free time to watch random videos wins—and that person will pretty much always be unhinged.

Strange take.

It was posted in response to a quoted post, is quite clearly titled and is a TED talk hosted on youtube (hardly the domain of RWNJs). Given I am reading this thread I would expect the video to be relevant to the topic, which it is. Click on the link, see it has been viewed millions of times with a very high like/dislike ratio. It also clearly shows the length of time. One can figure all that out in less than 30 seconds.

The alternate is to not watch it because you know it is going to challenge your point of view. Or to expect others to take the time to write you the cliffnotes.

Education for education's sake is perfectly fine. You never know what is going to come out the other end.
Yeah where would we be without peace and gender studies?

Oh we know what comes out the other end re huge % humanities grads, woke whingers with very little in the way of employable skills.

Yes, get rid of that and twitter and we are halfway to fixing many issues. I would add mainstream media to the list too

Looking forward to the social outrage at this article on news.com.au


wonder if there’d be the same reaction if the story was about a boyfriend posting about similar changes to his girlfriend?
