Response to rufus dog (Reply #39)

Sun Jan 19, 2020, 03:25 PM

42. I'm reminded of an old Far Side cartoon.

It shows scientists observing a room full of people. One of them says, "Yes, they're all fools. But what kind of fools are they?"

I sometimes think that, when dealing with a fool (or, in this case, douchebag), it helps to know why he or she is acting foolishly (or douchebaggishly). It gives me an advantage when getting others to recognize the fool (or douchebag) before them.

Moreover, I'm not searching deeply. I simply recognized a pattern of behavior I see all the time in groups of academics.

I will acknowledge one thing - many of his being-on-the-contrarian-side activities happen to align himself either against a woman or with someone known to have harmed women.
