Grace Bonney, "celebrated" (by hipsters) author at Design Sponge, is one such case.
Recently a truth activist posted this on one of her threads:
I think all opinions should be heard, the good and the bad. Why does everyone have to like this? Why are positive comments the only acceptable comments? Shouldnât there be some honest discussion about design standards on this âdesignâ blog?
I think there is often an overly positive response to some fairly aesthetically dubious content on this website.
Summary: people here are too accepting of mediocrity, which they justify on the basis of the "positivity" of their comments.
Intellectual turd Grace Bonney responds with:
iâm not sure why youâre under the impression that negative opinions arenât being heard. yours are both being published and read, no one is trying to stifle them, or your trademarked freedoms.
Summary: I'm going to pretend you were complaining about censorship, because that I can claim is not going on.
Except that she committed a logical fallacy here, of the type non-sequitur: she did not address the original point.
The original point was that a sick groupthink pervades the community where hipster idiots are praising each other's worthless projects.
Grace Bonney, in a stupor of her own creation, chose to interpret that as somehow about censorship.
That's a typical passive-aggressive hipster tactic, Grace. If you'd done that even in my intro philosophy classes, people would have suggested a PE major for you.
But probably like most other hipsters, you either faked your way through a "name" university by capitalizing on someone you knew or a special political exception category, or are hiding your own paltry education behind memorized "facts" that you claim show you can think.
However, the above example shows in black and white that you are a dishonest doofus.
Here's the original thread, in case anyone is interested.
