Read this now.
this guy really thinks highly of himself. I could have written this with at least 1/3rd of the verbage.
Don't be mad because he writes better than you.
There's something going on that I don't like, so the government should stop it so I'm not offended. Liberty and home of the free.
I'm not surprised you think that's better writing.
I'm not surprised you think your writing is better.
He does a good job of not throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
And I think the writing is technically fine. I didn't notice any issues reading it.
Instead of the discussion being focused on how advocating to “kill all white people” as a political statement or how the hashtag #KillAllMen are prejudicial and hateful sentiments, the millennial social justice advocate excuses and legitimizes these phrases and behaviors by suggesting that they are not racist or sexist but are legitimate expressions against their oppressors.
that's a 55 word sentence and this is hardly the only example. he also loves some pointless adjectives. Ernest Hemingway he ain't.
Didnt really find anything outlandish about the writing
I agree with Droski. His style is a bit longwinded for my tastes, which makes it hard for me to read a long ass article by him. To each their own.
He is hodor compared to tenacious D
Also, I'm going to agree with Droski. I've done a fair amount of writing and verbosity is not a desirable aspect of prose. The author's wordiness detracts from his main point as the message gets lost in the fluff of overly descriptive adjectives and phrases.
See Anderson, Holly
1. Wasn't at all surprised that the first example was about rape / blaming the victim.
2. Yeah, he's a little wordy, but it hasn't caused me to struggle with understanding any of his points yet.
There's being wordy, and then there's not making sense
And the sentence is fine. Kindly stop.
Hahaha. She used to be okay, but she's been bad since she got to Grantland. I think she's just trying too hard.
Yes, and his points are quite good.
Tenny doesn't take too many words to make a point; he just makes a point and then makes a second and third point which is pretty much the same as the first. Subtle difference.
But we digress.
Separate names with a comma.
