  1. I wholeheartedly agree with the condemnation of these aberrant behaviors that arise at the pinnacle of decadent and individual/material-centric culture, but I wonder if there is anyone listening to the Liminalist at this point who doesn’t. This felt like old territory at this point and was not as interesting as it could have been; there were points where it seemed like it could take off but Mrs. Parker doesn’t seem to have the background necessary to go there with Jasun. Kudos to her for standing her ground as she does.

  2. It seems as though the heart of the problem is a disease of the power of distinguishing. We are so enraged at the dangers of over-distinguishing–racism, sexism, extreme wealth inequality etc.–that we now declare even the most simple forms of distinguishing, such as noting that a man in a dress is not the same as a natal female, or for that matter almost any form of moral/behavioral disagreement, as extremely dangerous, aggressive and even legally punishable.
    “Live and let live… or else”, I think one of you said.
    I tend to think here of JBP’s (perhaps over-facile but handy) view of the masculine as representing ordering, and the feminine as chaos. Distinguishing in turn seems to me to fall under ordering. Might then the vilification of distinguishing, as well as the spate of males wishing to cast off their maleness to be “women”, signify an illness of masculinity itself? (On the other hand the number of girls seeking to become males has recently overtaken their M-to-F counterparts, so the issue must run deeper.)
    Wondering if you plan doing more of your series on JBP–it’s been an interesting ride.

  3. She’s apparently had both her facebook and twitter accounts suspended. If possible, could you get her to comment on this?
