In Oakland, it's pretty much turned into a OPD PR mouthpiece.

Pynchon on Luddites, it seems like some of the posted article was cribbed from here, but it's all readily available history.

    If I had to guess, we had somewhere around 15k people come out, and that's just for the Houston chapter.

For a political march in Houston, that's enormous.

No worries, I was working crazy late last night, so I wouldn't have been able to make it. Def let me know when ya'll try this again though, and hope it's been a productive trip.

I mean... their first record is mostly unattributed covers and poached material, so they were never really above such things.

I don't know enough about any of these people except for some of the more virulent members of the list to say much. While it seems like there's plenty of things to disagree with (namely the data collection opinion), calling him an extremist is definitely a stretch.

For clarification, in the thing I linked, the SPLC says

    Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a Somali-born activist who says she endured female genital mutilation
(emphasis mine), is there anything the SPLC has said beyond that like a direct accusation? cause that would be horrendously fucked up, and they have no business policing bodies that way.

Not arguing for or against, but the SPLC does outline their reasons for his inclusion here.

I never comment on your shirt posts, but I always like them cause it's so cute and I adore mandarin collars.

well, I mean, looks like Trump is going the "religious freedom" route next (read anti-LGBT, anti-reproductive rights), and Gorsuch did side with Hobby Lobby so I'm not convinced.

    It's sort of immaterial at the moment, because she's not seeing anybody else.

Consider it Chekov's relationship. I and a wide range of my social circle also participate in open or poly relationships, and we've all chosen to do so for a reason. While some people migrate back and forth from being monogamous and poly, trust me when I say it will definitely come up again.

I really hope it works out for you, you sound hopeful, but definitely be able to have that conversation, and retain the ability to do what is best for yourself, while respecting their lifestyle choices as well.

I'm not trying to be preachy, apologies if it comes off like that, but I have seen relationships advance with this dynamic, and it's a tricky thing to manage properly for all involved,
