Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I see nothing but empathy and compassion in the article, and a desire to offer the victims ways out of their dead-end worldview.

Petersen appears to be afflicted with narcissistic perversion, preying on the weak and vulnerable.

What if nothing but empathy and compassion is not exactly what is welcome for the guys? Life itself is rather toxic, even to vegetables.

Yeah I guess empathy and compassion are not manly virtues.

They are, of course, free to choose bad advice (Petersen's) over good.

This line of argument is a dead end. The proposition that males are incapable of expressing agape => compassion => empathy and acts of mercy => charity is patently implausible.

"Empathy" is a contemporary euphemism for the preceding emotive states. At one point documents on the internet attributed its invention to some obscure but prolific Anglo-american christian theologian (like Niebhur-Obama) whose actual name now escapes me. The damage to ideation of rationality and individuation (not CA "self-actualization") is done. Many Anglo-americans appear incapable of differentiatuing heteronomy and autonomy.

Were the proposition true, not only would (some) "women" not have obtained "equal rights" granted by the misyogynist state ("patriarchy"), human life on earth would not exist. There would be no fMRI illustrated behaviorial economic research results to peruse.

Let's move along.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.

That does it. I want your playlist. My daughter only sends me useless stuff, screaming gangsta rap and 12-minute Bollywood standards.

Little known fact of elder abuse.
