So the comments get closed, I notice after the FT writer ion the comments engages in the discussion and starts to loose.

I wonder if this is a womans studies degree?

What we know for sure is "speaking your truth" would have to be the same as "speaking THE truth," ...so why not just say that? The truth is the truth. Don't ...

Well put together in a digesable way. Well done.

The sexist world has become a recruiting ground for potential mass shooters.

I find it intetesting how Helen Lewis is rolled out to peddle the control-left's conspiracy theories. The grasp on concepts are so weak she can't even wrap her head around the basics of a topic. Then she claims that all of the manosphere think women are inferior, no but most people can probably spot that she is.

As he prepared to fly to the scene of the two most recent mass shootings, Donald Trump answered a question about the threat of violent white supremacists by mentioning the anti-fascist movement known as antifa. “I am concerned about the rise of any group of hate,” the president said, seemingly deflecting from the question at hand. “I don't like it ... Whether it's white

Ha ha ha. Complaining about conflating Antifa a group with no central control structure with white nationalists. Er, yes those same white nationalists who are also lacking a central control structure.

The Duke of Sussex has spoken candidly about the effects of “unconscious bias” on racism, warning people must understand how their upbringing and environment causes them to be prejudiced without realising it.

Look mate, I know a small minority of people give you gingers a hard time but it is a tiny minority and you should think about whether any possible "cure" (other than time) will be worse than the disease.

It is also important not to over diognose. Often someone may not like you but don't assume it is because you are ginger, it could be that people dislike the royalty, you may bahave in a way that irritates or people may dislike those who spount off about what is going on in everyone else's heads when they have no idea. Don't assume it is the red head thing, perhaps you will learn something about others and yourself.

And they're closed... What a surprise, probably due to the narrative about motor vehicle deaths falling apart when the original study was linked.

He’s not nearly as pro-freedom and pro-reason as he thinks he is.

Oh dear, Spiked dropped the ball here. So Libel is something that should not be actionable? My understanding of the libel cases is that they were brought on the basis of demonstrably false statements made about him. These may have beem made in the context of justifying broarder statements but if there was no untrue defamitory statements made the case would have been thrown out. I would ask whai is wrong with taking legal action against a body that knowingly lies about you to remind others not to lie about you or others?

As for the specifics of Petersons ideas I don't know his work but the argument sounds a bit contrived and doesn't seem to engage with other thinkers on morality and biological roots so I'm skeptical of the quality of the argument.

Also the "appeals to white men" line, has any one got numbers of the racial btrakdown of his followers? Perhaps by geography compared with the demographics? If not I'm at a loss for the need for this.

This is one of those occasions when the desire to be contrairian overwhelms thecdesire to be right.

I wonder if the WaPo owner knows what precident he is allowing. What if people started saying Bezos was the Epstein of the west coast, and find a random homeless guy to say he think he has a creepy interest in young runaway homeless boys. I suspect Bezos would suddenly find (quite rightly) he wouldn't want his money reinforcing this very dangerous legal position. The owners, editors and CEOs of media companies have massive reputations to loose they really should want fair lible laws. But some people can be really shortsighted and stupid... There is a reason even those who describe themselves as "free speech absolutists" actually aren't and recognise the need for lible protection.
