There's an essay by Tamara Nopper on, a site that someone I was having an unpleasant discussion with on G+ pointed me at as something he was involved with; the essay is one of the first things I read on the site, and I pretty strongly disagree with it. It also strikes me as batshit crazy; the wrong kind of social justice movement and actively harmful to these causes. I'm willing to dig through it and write a detailed response (for you, not really for the author, who is in my estimation not likely to accept my criticism), but I'm not sure it'd be interesting for people to read. Writing it would also be fairly unpleasant because it involve digging into the nitty-gritty of a document I consider actively repugnant. It might be worth it if a few of you might like to read a more detailed breakdown though. If you like, skim the essay, and let me know what you think in the poll (and optionally leave a comment if my poll options don't capture what you think very well).

Poll #1838995 Racetraitor essay response?

After reading this essay, I think:

It's batshit crazy
I mostly disagree with it
It has some decent points amid some things I disagree with
I think it's mostly sensible
I agree with it wholeheartedly
It's not that interesting

Would I like Pat to write a response to it?

Pat would probably offend me with what he'd say
No need, it's crazy
It would probably be TL;DR
