"In times when it becomes socially and professionally dangerous to talk about facts..."

"...because the media consensus and the academic consensus is so completely all in on these fictions... that simply aren't true...  if I'm occasionally mean it's normally because they deserve it.  Because you are being lied to...  knowingly every day by journalists in the press, in newspapers and on television.  They know they're doing it and they do it anyway...

We live in quite crazy times.  We live in times where it's open season, you can say whatever you want about the Straight White Male of folklore.  You can abuse them, you can call them terrible names, you can do awful things and you won't get censure for this outright sexism, you will get applause.  In those circumstances I think "being mean" is the least I could be doing."
