Somebody asked a question the other day on the history of antisemitism, so as I tend to do from time to time, I wrote a little thing about it. link.medium.com/7mYXKUhUdeb

Remember when you would pour over previews of new games, whipping yourself up into a frenzy of hype, barely able to keep your anticipation in check? I think some of that magic has been diminished now you can just contact the creator and call them a cunt.

I’d argue that capitulating to the obsessive Snydercult, emboldened arseholes to such an extent that we will still feel those ripples permeating through fandoms for decades to come.

I have an inkling that Jordan Peterson’s constant meltdowns and threats to leave Twitter might possibly just be performative.

I still see people putting far too much pressure on themselves. It's okay to fuck up. Sometimes it's even fun to fuck up.

Power hates being held to account. Which is why it’s imperative that it’s always held to account.

I’m a big fan of history. And there is a reasonable historical argument for abortion, if we take the year 1782 as an example. In 1782 it’s readily apparent that the right to abortion for any reason, was none of your fucking business. Nothing has changed. So fuck right off.

We are scum.

Good. I went to Sachsenhausen on a school trip back in 1993, 48 years after it was liberated. 29 years on and those images are still burnt in. I can’t even begin to imagine the sheer horror of what it must have been like to have been sent there when the camp was operational.

People having a meltdown over pronouns on a name badge in a bank. Precious little warriors. What the fuck are you so afraid of?

I went to a C of E school. Not being christian we were allowed to opt out of assembly, so me and the Jehovahs Witness kid used to spend the time designing video game levels on graph paper instead of pretending to sing along to "All Things Bright and Beautiful" like the faithful.

NEW: The Attorney General of Texas, Ken Paxton (R), just said that the Supreme Court should overturn Lawrence v. Texas, which struck down laws that banned LGBTQ people from having sex. If this happened, 16 states have laws banning “sodomy” that would immediately go into effect.

I think Conservative MPs need to be added to the list of people it’s socially acceptable to punch.
Conservative MP Danny Kruger says the UK should not be “lecturing” the US about abortion rights. He says he disagrees with those who "think that women have an absolute right to bodily autonomy in this matter."

The best World Cup in history was 2002. For the simple reason that I managed to convince my boss at the time that I liked football and got so many shifts off.

You can only hold people down for so long, until eventually you take away so many of their rights it doesn’t matter anymore. And they bite your nose off.
