haring racist links and threats against women, you’d think in 2013 people wouldn’t want that kind of stuff around in a health community…thus my comment on Sisson’s thread.
I commented because I generally agree with him … but also brought up a point directly related to why he tweeted this in the first place.Generally most ppl are aware that sharing a link doesn’t imply a blanket endorsement. But when you share violent, racist or misogynistic links, that is a problem.
There’s a lil difference when the links are racist or violent towards women.
Racism and misogyny are not cool and should not be tolerated in a health community.
That was the problem.
At least Sisson hasn’t done such a thing.
This whole topic came from Jaminet, Jimmy Moore, Davis, McGuff sharing ‘controversial’ links. They linked David Duke, former Grand Wizard of KKK
Jaminet’s was less offensive, white nationalists nonetheless.
…and also was in reference to people linking to Nikoley, promoting his demeaning, bigoted blog posts.
This is the problem, get it?
Nikoley’s blog is a hotbed for inexcusable and offensive anti woman rhetoric. It’s hateful. The main post that brought all this up was not only demeaning, it was violent, with rape threats.
It should be called out and people made aware that so called ‘health’ gurus do this type of shit, which thankfully isn’t often.
This was all happening around the time of Stebenville trial. You and others are evading an important issue and shifting blame. This is what the media did after the verdict, blame the victim, praise the bully. This is why people call this ‘rape culture’ – because when threats (or violence) against women are made, you resort to blaming the victim not holding the aggressor accountable.
Paleodrama catalogs all these offensive links. Can’t delete all your regrets on the interwebz. You’re just defending your friends/gurus. Honorable, I must say, you’re a true friend. Rare indeed. Unfortunately, you’ll need to do better research for your next article as your claims are incorrect.
Hatred & internet threats should not be tolerated. People sharing these links will get called out, that’s a normal part of human societies. We keep each other in check.
Expect people to speak up if you’re (not you author, but the aforementioned Gurus) going to promote hate, sexism or racism. Pretty simple actually.
Antonio on a blog post that is rather hostile to this site because according to them, I deserve it because I “created a fake account.” That’s kind of exactly why Nikoley saying he was blackmailing people is laughable. He doesn’t need to because he makes stuff up.
What is now YEARS ago, when I was in my early twenties, I made a comment under a moniker in his comments. There was no fake account, there was a single comment. And no matter how dislikable a woman is, there is no reason to harass her, but the Adria Richards fiasco is a good reminder that no matter what a woman does, a mis-step is one that gives ALL women a bad name (this blog post says “What a way to make women look bad!”) and anything that happens to her is deserved. I don’t think even the worst woman in the world deserves to be harassed.
The good news is that positive changes are afoot, that some leaders recognize that there is an issue.
The hilarious irony is that the blogger of the post in question won’t link to a hate site because they don’t want to bring traffic there. It’s almost too hilarious to be true since I’ve been saying the same thing. But the site they won’t link to is this one. To some corners of the paleo community, this is a hate site, whereas sites with actual misogyny, racism, and other serious bigotry are fine to link to as long as they link to a specific non-hate post.
