    Apparently they're going to be having a formal debate on April 19. Who do you think will win this retard slap fight? Or are there even winners and losers at the intellectual special olympics?

    Žižek will win. Jordan Peterson is just a fairly average college professor who got famous because he didn't think it was right to force people to use certain language (a crusade, I will add, that I supported him in). Aside from that, his biggest accomplishment is writing a fucking self-help book about the importance of keeping a clean home. His greatest skill is perhaps his ability to use asinine folkloric metaphors. Žižek, on the other hand, is a career intellectual who has written several well-respected books in 4 languages.

    For comparison, we're talking about a debate between the guy who wrote these:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Parallax_View_(book)
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sublime_Object_of_Ideology
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welcome_to_the_Desert_of_the_Real
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contingency,_Hegemony,_Universality (Contributor/co-author, but still.)

    Among myriad others.

    And a guy who wrote these:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maps_of_Meaning
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/12_Rules_for_Life

    Plus, Žižek is an inherently likeable personality. Peterson is a whiny brat.

    *schniff*

    Not that I don't find "Maps of Meaning" intriguing, but the debate is featherweight v heavyweight. It's not going to be pretty.

    I have nothing to add. HTS has really spelled out the right way of looking at this. No contest, really. I can't wait to watch my favorite sweaty philosopher run roughshod over that inflated ego.

    Everyone knows winners of public debates are determined by which interlocutor rubs their nose the most. And in this respect zizek is a bronzed god which no one can touch. Peterson is going to be steamrolled by nose rubbing of that caliber.

    zizek is too emotional when talks, and therefore hes a faggot.

    zizek is literally a dirty commie. He bathes in the blood of the bourgeois but only like twice a year. He smells like onions and garlic all the rest of the year. Peterson will be rubbing his nose like crazy to no avail and will have to plug his nose and possibly lose consciousness trying to act nasally self entitled while holding his breath.

    I really hate zizek though but Peterson is such a try hard faggot. I hope they both just go away

    My life is pretty decent. I live in a nice (if untidy) condo, I'm in a stable relationship, my transition is proceeding pretty smoothly. All in all, things are okay. That's a pretty funny criticism of me, coming from a meth head who was freaking out about his jaw being the wrong place presumably after a few days awake as of like a week ago and who admitted to basically having hit rock bottom not long ago/wanting to fix his life.



    If my life was in shambles they wouldn't have let me chop my balls off. Like, literally, that's one of the conditions - you have to have a stable lifestyle with people to support you for over a year leading up to the surgery. I have both. Do you?

    Do you mean the room in my parents' basement I was doing trash angels in like 3 years ago? I live in a different city now. I mean, not gonna lie my kitchen is a war zone and there's a steadily growing amount of trash on every table, but my life is less in shambles than it's been in as long as I can remember. :o

    Like two or three times a year? I barely even drink these days. Life is good.

    idk why you felt the need to flex on me in the first place, but shit like this is not the sign of a man who's life is somehow less in shambles than my own:
