So I spent most of my run today thinking of all the twitter reaction to this blog post (http://jenlc13.wordpress.com/2014/08/22/hockey-twitter-social-change-2/) and while most of what’s worth being said about it has already been said, I just have a thought for all the people using it to prop up the idea that ladies need to calm down and explain things rationally or else they’re damaging the discourse.Maybe it’s worth considering why the women you’re trying to talk to are reacting with emotion rather than the calm, rational debate/explanation you want?

I completely agree with the idea that screaming someone down is not particularly persuasive, but can you be rational and try to figure out why that’s the reaction you’re getting instead of getting pouty and defensive? Unless you’re of the belief that women are particularly emotionally unstable, there’s got to be a reason that a lot of women are expressing frustration or anger at your confusion or “harmless” questions. Maybe, it’s because sexual harrassment is a very real and hurtful experience for some women? Maybe the women you’re talking to have had to slog through calming themselves down to have discussions with concern trolls, devil’s advocates, and general assholes only to realize that they’ve wasted hours of time and emotional energy on people who don’t give a fuck, and you sound just like those other dudes? Maybe you’re actually derailing the conversation?

So if you’re a well meaning dude, try to give that a moment’s thought before you go talking about the culture of outrage or damaging the discourse. Your defensive reaction isn’t particularly helpful or kind either.

As Arnold points out, there is an otherwise inexplicable shift in direction in the Piccadilly line passing east out of South Kensington. “In fact,” she writes, “the tunnel curves between Knightsbridge and South Kensington stations because it was impossible to drill through the mass of skeletal remains buried in Hyde Park.” I will admit that I think she means “between Knightsbridge and Hyde Park Corner”—although there is apparently a “small plague pit dating from around 1664” beneath Knightsbridge Green—but I will defer to Arnold’s research.

But to put that another way, the ground was so solidly packed with the interlocked skeletons of 17th-century victims of the Great Plague that the Tube’s 19th-century excavation teams couldn’t even hack their way through them all. The Tube thus had to swerve to the side along a subterranean detour in order to avoid this huge congested knot of skulls, ribs, legs, and arms tangled in the soil—an artificial geology made of people, caught in the throat of greater London.

"GREAT MEET OF NEWSBOYS." July 25, 1899. The Sun.
(Kid Blink at New Irving Hall rally.)

"Yer know me, boys!" began the Kid, and there were cries of "yer bet we do," Well, I’m here to say if we are goin’ to win this strike we must stick like glue and never give in. Am I right?" [Cries of "Yes! yes!"]

"Ain’t that 10 cents worth as much to us as it is to Hearst and Pulitzer, who are millionaires? Well, I guess it is. If they can’t spare it, how can we?"

"Soak ‘em, Blink," yelled an enthusiast.

"Soak nothin’," remarked the Kid. "I’m tellin’ the truth. I’m tryin’ to figure out how 10 cents on a hundred papers can mean more to a millionaire than it does to a newsboy, an’ I can’t see it. Now, boys, I’m goin’ ter say like the rest: No more violence. Let up on the drivers. No more rackets like that on the other night where a Journal and a World wagon was turned over in Madison street. Say, to tell the truth, I was there myself.”

"You bet yer was, Blink, an’ a-leadin’, too," came a voice.

"Wel, never mind, we’re goin’ to let up on the scabs now and win the strike on the square. Kid Blink’s a talkin’ to yer now. Do yer know him? We won in 1893 and will win in 1899, but stick together like plaster."
