Ha ha ha, our muffin, #ColinWright not being entirely rational, is he. When Elon Musk copies his cartoon, "It's fine! It's fine! May I interest you in a mug, too, Elon, my mugs are the best mugs!" When Aaron copies his cartoon (albeit with enhancements): "You're insufferable."
Can't be that agreeing and disagreeing with someone on other matters and/or sheer level of internet clout could influence #ColinWright's judgement on someone's use of his stick figure cartoon, could it?

That would not be high decoupling if that were the case, now would it? 😂
Lefties copying his cartoon is what will push him toward QAnon, folks. Tread carefully!
Wait a second! It's about the money, isn't it? It's that Aaron's factual edits don't promise to be a marketing plus for #ColinWright trying to squeeze some money out of his little cartoon, isn't it? That's what makes Aaron's response insufferable. No promise of income. Colin Wright @SwipeWright T...
Love how he keeps calling it "my political cartoon."
It'll be his book cover, I promise.

Has he tried putting it on leggings yet, for online sale? Socks? Ties?

Lessons from the #JordanPeterson school of visual art.
#ColinWright, the former biologist, boldly swimming against the current by doggypaddling himself deeper and deeper into white supremacist waters.

Should be fun! Colin Wright: Be sure to ca...
Oh, missed this earlier.

"Whatever your feelings about my cartoon"! "I hope it will be used as a conversation starter"! Opportunity! To learn! About our different views! Through civil discourse!

Just not when someone's critical of Colin's views, I guess. Colin Wright Retweeted Coli...

#Quillette published its house phrenologist's lament on having lived the last two years "in exile" from academia. The subheading is to cringe for: "Academia has become an intellectual prison, and many incarcerated professors are compelled to live a dual existence." Let's see. 1/
Bo Winegard says he was shocked and bewildered when he lost his job. He'd thought academia was a place "guided by evidence and argument instead of political ad hominem." I've read some of this papers. Rich in evidence and meticulous in argumentation isn't what I'd call them. 2/
He remembers his literature degree, reading French theorists, on the side discovering Robert Wright and Richard Dawkins, and turning to evolutionary psychology as a result. 3/

Good points in this thread!

All my courses now have two consultation assignments: one for the mid-sized assignment halfway through the course, one for the final assignment.

Note: I don't teach big lectures; my courses are between 30-45 students and I teach 3 of those a term. 1/
If you have a lecture with TAs, you can still do this by training TAs in providing these consultations.

It's worth it. This term I've used this approach most consistently to date. I can tell which of the final projects were written by students who didn't manage to visit me. 2/
Here are some strategies that help me manage holding this many office hours.

1. There is electronic signup via our LMS. If I have extra time available during crunch time, I'll put it into the system and announce it. Students can keep checking and sign themselves in. 3/

My dear man, please do not get into the business of trying to teach elementary school children. I beseech you. Don’t even think about it. No.
Fourty years ago we still had thesauri banned from any admissions test or course exam. Since then thesaurus theory has seeped into every form of punditry. It cannot be questioned or debated. It is the new cacography.

Let's trace the self-alleged non-political cabal at play here. A cabal trying to change current principles of gender-affirmative care for trans youth. While conducting no original research of their own.

May I introduce, Society for Evidence-Based Gender Medicine (SEGM). 1/
What do they do?

Mostly they lobby for "evidence-informed healthcare" for "children, adolescents, and young adults with gender dysphoria."

If you believe a society with that narrow a focus doesn't have very particular political goals, you must be freshly born. 2/
They made a bibliography to show that evidence for gender dysphoria treatments is "of very low quality" and that they are very concerned for gender-dysphoric youth.

They filed an amicus brief to challenge WPATH on mastectomy for adolescents.

They post online news releases. 3/

This part of #ColinWright's interview went on for quite a bit: he made his own example of not landing a TT job evidence for how rotten he thinks academia is. But he didn't mention once that his supervisor & co-author was a fraudster & that those co-retractions dragged him down.
“'Due to legal concerns (Pruitt obtaining lawyers) I have been advised not to issue any comments on this until the investigation surrounding Dr. Pruitt has finished,' #ColinWright, who co-authored several papers with Pruitt, tells ScienceInsider."

#JesseSingal, true to form, keeps hammering his list of requested corrections on all doors.

Do others remember when he copied his lawyer in an email and said it was certainly not a legal threat? Now he says someone saying corrections might appear “Soon…” is “ominous.” 🙃
One can read the DSM-IV as #JesseSingal does, hunting obsessively for those “misrepresentations” for which he then asks for corrections.

It’s been widely discussed though how changes in the DSM-V were to remove transness from being an identity disorder.

So no, dear outraged Jesse, it is not “profound sloppiness” and it does not “exhibit complete unfamiliarity” when one repeats what is widely established in the accompanying research and discussion.

The angry nerve of this man.

I hope someone can find it amusing.
