    Use whatever version you want, doesn't change the fact that the word is ambiguous and has no specific parameters. Taken out of the confines of academia and placed into society it becomes nothing more than a buzzword and an empty slogan.

    Guilt culture is clearly defined and more than just a buzzword.

    Cool, not sure what your point is here.
    It just as meaningful as your buzzwords.

    Oh so your buzzwords mean something. How convenient :laugh:

    The point was that as a white man I have had it easier it certain ways even I am aware of. But I think you knew that.

    I don't want to generalise his audience but I believe they're mainly American? Maybe that would explain why there's more right-wing tendencies to his followers. British kids and youngsters will always tend to gravitate towards Socialism more than Americans would
    The Chomsks is big in the USA as well.

    So it is no surprise the majority of his supporters and indeed those who purchased Jordan's self-help book "12 Rules for Life: An antidote to chaos" are radicalised young men. Is he the father figure that these young men are lacking and is his popularity explained by him filling a void in the minds/hearts of his followers. I've looked at the 12 rules and they're not ground breaking and these rules which he says is a framework for success are basic stuff that any father worth his salt would have taught his children before they leave for university.

    The 12 rules are listed below judge for yourself:
    1. sort your self out
    2. clean your room
    3. buckle up
    4. recognise that life suffering
    5. rescue your father
    6. be a hero
    7. Take the past and future authoring programs
    8. Be humble about what you don't know
    9. Give your life meaning
    10. tell the truth
    11. Don't bother the bad crowd
    12. Adjust and adapt

    Is he scamming our young men? Are they sheep? Do they have a good relationship with their father's?
    no

    With all due respect, stop playing the victim. Diversity is not racist and it is inclusion at it is best. White men have benefited from positive discrimination for centuries where education was a luxury only afforded to this group and yet denied to so many like women and people of colour so I find your allegation that diversity is bad slightly hypocritical. Look, I understand that you may be threatened because a woman or person of colour may or may not have received your university offer but the cold truth is that you're not competing against women and people of colour but you were not good enough against the other white men who also applied. To put it simply, you didn't make the cut. Move along. No need to be bitter, get better.

    You do have a point though about white women disproportionalty benefiting from all diversity initiatives when in reality they were complicit in racist and discriminatory practices of the past.
    Never stated diversity was racist, I am stating giving advantages to any skin colour or race is racist, "White men" Like we are some collective I had Nothing to do with the slave trade nor did you, are we now responsible for the actions of our ancestors, better start charging the children of murderers, imprison a bunch of Germans and arrest Millions of People for things they had no say in nor any action in.

    Once again I am not talking about diversity, I am talking about race hiring and quotas, this is not something personal as I have not directly experienced this, the BBC has quotas for black and a bunch of other ethnic groups and minorities, Uni's often have weighted positions based on race, In America black people need a lower grade than a white or even Asian people to get into a college, this is not some conspiracy, this is a fact just look it up

    That's a big claim.
    How do you know this?
    Read the last few posts I made, you can also just search something along the lines of "GPA for blacks vs Whites"

    But wouldn't there be a lot more to it than "Someone hates me for my skin colour".
    I'll go read it now.
    I dunno how it is in America, but surely only you control your GPA? If it is like an Average GCSE/GCE then I don't see how any one other than you infleunces that.

    Ok so Imagine I get a 3.0 GPA (national average) and I am looking to apply to quite a few colleges, I would do what I am doing now in the UK and see what unis I can realistically apply to, I might do something simmilar to having a few semi risky choices and a few choices I can easily get.

    I get my results back and out of the 5 I chose (I have no clue how many they can chose) and I get, Denied, Possibly,possibly,probably,accep ted
    If I had done nothing else bar put my ethnicity as black I could have got something along the lines of one possibly and the rest accepted. Obviously you might be thinking that tons of other stuff goes into getting accepted but I even remember a website (that you now need to sign up to) with a checker and it would give you a good estimate of your chance at getting in some of the top colleges and if you put in black instead of white and said the exact same GPA you would get far better results than non blacks, even asians have to get a higher score than white people quite often so that is even more racist.

    The table might have been done in 1997 but it is a good study and if you think of how liberal we are now there are often more oppertunities for blacks, Sometimes even they get a reserved amount of places say 100 out of 1000 have to be given to blacks, meaning that I am fighting for even fewer places, these arguments have been upheld by the supreme court and are abhorrent.

    The article even then tries to suggest it is not biased with a bunch of ********, if I have a disadvantage JUST because I am white and he has an advantage because he is black that is racism as plain as it could be.

    Did you just make these rules up? Or have you read the book and reworded each one? I doubt one of the chapters of the book is just a simple signpost to his future authoring programme.

    Stupidity is to try the same thing over and over and expect a different result. Your current strategy of prostrating yourself before your feminist overlords clearly hasn't been too sucessful so far.

    It's never too late to reclaim your balls mate.

    I 'm currently reading through "The Vagina Monologues". This is a book promoted by feminists as one of their most important. One of its chapters celebrates sexual, paedophilic relationships between adult women and children in graphic detail....The title of the chapter, I s**t you not, is:

    "The Little Coochi Snorcher That Could" ....

    Feminists become offended by a book written to help men containing trivial advice e.g. cleaning one's room…Yet they follow an ideology who’s books promote the most deplorable things you can imagine…and they celebrate these books, defend, promote and justify their content....This speaks volumes about this hypocritical, shameless cult of man-hating sexists and ignoramuses.

    So you agree gender is a social construct just like race?

    Interesting. :beard:

    But the nuclear family and its gender roles are so lame. What these young men want is so tediouse. It's so conservative and boring. I want to rebel!

    In what world does my comment even suggest gender is a social construct and Race is factually not a social construct, I am stating that you are trading white on black racism for black on white racism and that both are wrong.

    He's a conservative psychologist who has veered very far away from his own specialty and is now considered a life guru on almost everything.

    He has competence in a narrow area of psychology - namely, clinical psychology. He has no particular expertise in political theory, economics, sociology, etc -- but he is still, somehow, taken as an authority on issues related to those fields. He ain't, he's no more or less informed than any other layman of comparable intelligence.

    Also, his views on God are tragically obscure and I can't believe he hasn't thought deeply about things like the incarnation for example. The response he gave to an interviewer when asked about the resurrection revealed him to be ignorant about theology. How he manages to be that AND teach the Bible, Idk. It's something for the JP fanboys to figure out.

    You said "another racism" implying my positive gender discrimination is like racism. ??

    Race as a social construct has a lot more going for it than the totally discredited thoeries of race biology do.

    My argument has been that Blacks have systematic advantages that whites do not and that trading white racism for black racism is a very bad idea, nothing about gender has been brought up in my argument.

    "Totally discredited" more like that argument is totally laughable, Races have clear differences in many different biological areas, Races have differentbiological features.
