My (very) Ocassional Ramblings and Updates That I Didn’t Feel Like Putting Into a Video

What’s My Personality Type?

I get asked pretty frequently what my MBTI personality type is. If you’re not familiar, MBTI refers to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator which is a questionnaire designed to implement a theory of the different types of personalities that humans can have that was first proposed by psychotherapist Carl Jung. If you’ve ever seen someone describe themselves…

Anxiety Thought Vomit

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that I’ve begun to frequently experience anxiety. It seems that for most people this begins at a young age, but as far as I can remember, this isn’t something I dealt with when I was a teenager or younger. I was much more stoic and unaffected by things back…

The Wage Gap and “Conventional Wisdom”

Often, an idea will pop up that defies conventional wisdom.  Sometimes these are mere hoaxes and unsubstantiated conspiracy theories that are advanced by paranoid analysis of coincidences and unusual phenomena about which the speakers are usually ignorant. The recent revelation that rapper B.o.B. was a flat-earther was accompanied by supposed “evidence” of the earth’s lack of roundness, such as…

The New Wave of YouTube “Skeptics”

If you follow social justice topics on the internet, it’s likely that you’ve been made aware of several popular YouTubers who have developed followings by making videos that are harshly critical of mainstream social movements like feminism and Black Lives Matter. I don’t think these groups are or should be immune from criticism, and I…

Reading My First Tweets

This is a more fun and light-hearted video than usual, and I’m intending to do more stuff like this to break up all the talk of serious issues. That’s not to say there’s nothing substantial though. From reading my old tweets I got a sense of my mindset almost 6 years ago, and I even…

“It’s Not My Job to Educate You!”

Personally, I think effective communication is essential in order to gain sympathizers to your cause. This is why most successful movements have notable and memorable leaders who communicated the message in a way that was accessible by a large variety of people. In my view effective communication is, among other things, assertive and stern, but…

Sympathy for Pre-Teens

The older I get (i’m 31 now), I find it harder and harder to relate to kids and teenagers, which is of course what you would expect. The way they speak, the things they’re into, etc. are just on a different wavelength than anything I remember. But one thing that I think seems to persist…

I’m Not Scared of Donald Trump

  Voters in America are often faced with the challenge of selecting the “lesser of two evils”, and this years Presidential election feels to many of us (especially progressives) like the choice is harder than it ever has been. On the one hand you have Donald Trump, who by most measures in completely unqualified and…

Why Do Men Send DICK PICS?

  I think a lot of articles and videos on the internet that discuss ideas like consent and sexual assault are often very condescending and unhelpful to most people. They seem to be targeted at actual rapists, and are basically the equivalent of a flustered exclamation “Stop harassing and assaulting people!” The problem with this…

Non-White Cultures that Contributed to Civilization

  My goal was to make at least one video a week, but this month has provided so many things for me to respond to. The other day, Republican Congressman Steve King caught heat for making what some people consider racist remarks. The gist of it that he asserted that the Western World (and, he…
