It’s just damn disturbing imagery.
Henceforth may he be known as Scott “Stick Your Fingers In Your Dad’s Ass” Adams.
There may be some issues there…
(Ugh, no more).
It could be applied in many ways to many people. Sort of a new “keep fucking that chicken”!
Or " Yeah, Jordan Peterson really stuck a finger up his dad’s ass in that tweet"
ETA: This also sounds like the worst MBMBAM catchphrase parody ever
Indeed. Tougher call with him though, since he always already seems like he’s got his fingers stuck up his own ass (along with his head).
That’s why the good Lord gave us so many fingers and so few orifices. We have to cooperate to achieve everything that we could!
Obviously, not always the case. Dolly Parton is richer than Adams, and she’s one of the nicest people on the planet. And let’s not forget Keanu Reeves.
I believe people get rich enough to show their true selves without fear of repercussions. They were always that person inside
(That applies to the bad ones and the good ones!)
Edited to add: Usually. Anyone can work on themselves and show great improvement in how they treat others and how they feel about themselves as a result
Well, in all honesty, i think he’s on tk something. If you assault someone, they may respond with violence. Not sure that any kind of deep insight, but i guess it’s true. Where he goes wrong is assuming this is limited to encounters with men.
Add the Washington Post to the list. I had emailed them yesterday to say I couldn’t & wouldn’t subsidize Adams via my subscription.
Just to add to that from way back in TMW 1993:
/Tom Tomorrow is an alt-weeklier you should support.
Weird how he seems to think that’s not creating the “implied violence”.
I guess it’s just a common friendly greeting where he comes from.
Yeah this tells me that Adams was always a piece of shit. And it does change how I view Dilbert now. Some things I took to be satirical I now think weren’t intended as satire. It’s the same with Harry Potter and Rowling. Her blatant transphobia has made me take a second look at a lot of stuff in Harry Potter, and I now recognize that a lot of it is problematic, and frankly I’m a little embarrassed I didn’t recognize that sooner.
Don’t beat yourself up. I used to think Manhattan was a great movie!
And that’s just a single example out of probably thousands! The important thing is being able to recognize when things change an reconsider your position
Man deþ swa he byþ þonne he mot swa he wile.
A man shows what he is when he can do whatever he wants.
(The Durham Proverbs #14, Durham Cathedral, MS B. III. 32, early or mid 11C)
He’s using the Pence Rule defense.
“Do you remember the ‘Pence rule?’ The Pence Rule was he wouldn’t go to lunch or dinner with a woman who is not his wife. Now, do you think that Pence does not like women? Would that be a reasonable conclusion? […] Is that an anti-women thing? By the way, that’s totally right. Here’s how I interpret it. It has nothing to do with anything to do with any individual woman. [Mike Pence is not saying] ‘this jezebel wants to go to lunch with me.’ He’s not saying that. He’s just playing the odds. He’s just playing a statistical game.”
Seems to me there are easier ways to avoid deadlines.
Oh I know, let’s fight about Fight Club!
