PDF [Talking to Strangers What We Should Know About the People We Don’t Know]

Talking to Strangers What We Should Know About the People We Don’t KnowIf this had just been stories about spies and the meeting between Hern n Cort s and Montezuma or whatever I would have rated it five stars There s no uestion that Malcolm Gladwell is a good storyteller I just wish that he would leave it at that and stop trying to shoe horn a bunch of tall tales into some sort of coherent statement about the state of the world I m not a scientist but I think that I know science when I see it I ain t seeing it here The death of Sandra Bland is what happens when a society does not know how to talk to strangers This is the stupidest thing I ve heard concerning this tragedy This was also the whole The Lady and the Lionheart point of this book and Galdwell s facile explanation is completely without meritThe cop was uite simply a ginormous fucking asshole We have it all on film for Christ s sake He just couldn t let it go that this black woman wasn t bowing down to him and had the temerity to light up a cigarette in his majesticresence He ulled her over as he states for failing to signal a lane change when he ulled behind her Are you kidding me What kind of cop does thatBrian Encinia OK ma am Pause You OKBland I m waiting on you This is your job I m waiting on you When re you going to let me go Encinia I don t know you seem very really irritatedBland I am I really am I feel like it s crap what I m getting a ticket for I was getting out of your way You were speeding up tailing meso yeah I m a little irritatedBrian Encinia Are you done Are you done What a total asshole There is absolutely no uestion that his tone was completely nasty just listen to the video He asked her if she was OK What does he expect her to say Thank you for ulling me over and fucking with me for no reason whatsoever This was that oint when it went from a bullshit traffic stop to something sinister on his Schilder's Struggle for the Unity of the Church part where he had something torove to himself Unfortunately it came at the expense of another human being who was simply trying to make it through the dayI wish that Sandra Bland had asked him Is this why you became a cop To hassle A (kinda) Country Christmas people for no good reason She was so incredibly reasonable and the cop was just a huge asshole End of story There are no two sides to this He is unfit for the job He either hates blackeople or he just hates eople Either way he doesn t deserve the ublic trust that is necessary to be a olicemanThis brings up the entire nature of olice work Like most other American kids I grew up on a steady diet of TV and movies in which the heroes were cops yet I never consider being a National Geographic Kids Almanac 2020 policeman for even a split second Why Probably because I just never felt the need to haveower over anyone else I never felt that I had something to rove We need to test olice recruits for this tendency and weed them out if they have a chip on their shoulder like Brian Encinia He should definitely not be a Why Is It Always About You?: The Seven Deadly Sins of Narcissism policeman He is a terrible human being especially after the fact when he testified that he felt his life was in dangerHuman beings are sometimes or oftentimes fooled by a load of shit some strangerasses off on them Gladwell is now infamous for cherry Gods and fighting men: the story of the Tuatha de Danaan and of the Fianna of Ireland, arranged and put into English by Lady Gregory picking examples thatrove his Charming the Firefighter point while ignoring volumes that tell of a different outcome People are often wrong about the intentions of strangers they talk toexcept when they are rightIn all of his ramblings about the CIA the only conclusion we should come to is that the US should just stop spying and try being straightforward and open as a nation just to see where that gets us Spying hasroduced so little benefit especially when you consider how much money we ve oured into that black hole OK we got Bin Laden but how much did it cost us to hunt down and assassinate one hairy old religious fanatic Imagine instead if we had used all of that money to build schools and hospitals around the world thus building goodwill I think goodwill trumps some dead fanatic The issue with spies is not that there is something brilliant about them It is that there is something wrong with us I couldn t disagree with this I would turn this thought on its head The issue with spies is not that there is something brilliant about them It is that there is something wrong with them Of course the Soviets East Germans and Cubans beat the US in spy craft over the course of decades because they are a eople hatched in duplicitous dictatorships where obfuscation and deceit are reuired for survival This is Everyone Loves Clowns and Other Tales precisely why we should have never tried to battle them in this realm We should have gone the route of honesty and full disclosureAs a nation would we rather excel at deception or honesty Why are we so bad at detecting lies This is a stupid meaningless uestion that makes about as much sense as asking why we are so bad atredicting the outcome of a sporting event You win some you lose someWith that said if your job is to ferret out double agents in an intelligence organization and you interview someone you suspect and then let them off the hook you suck to The Elements of Computing Systems: Building a Modern Computer from First Principles put it mildlyGladwell extrapolates some incredibly outrageous outcomes from his little modern fairy talesI had to skip over almost the entire section on the Penn Stateedophile story So you are a grown man in a locker room You see another man having sex with a child in Love's Funny That Way plain sight and you run away without doing anything What a bunch of cowards we are The Mcueary guy ran upstairs to call hisarents What I would have done had I been in that same situation before running upstairs to call my arents would have been to beat that edo half to death That would have been a better story to tell mom and dad "than to say that I had witnessed a child rape and did fuck about it "to say that I had witnessed a child rape and fuck all about it couldn t live with that level of cowardiceI had to skip over Chapter Six because it deals with the TV show Friends which makes me Hitler's First War: Adolf Hitler, the Men of the List Regiment, and the First World War physically illToo Good Just for the CommentsGoodreads User James wrote

one s area of expertiseAddition The story was told by the Roman writer Pliny the Elder hence Latin Malcolm Gladwell is viewed as a hugely influential writer and I was eagerly anticipating reading this my first taste of his work a body of his thinking on how we theeople are extraordinarily gullible when it comes to strangers all too easily taken in by them in our general eagerness to trust rather than be cautious He gives a raft of well known examples from history such as Neville Chamberlain being all to willing to take Hitler at face value and recent contemporary examples such as the runaway success of Bernie Madoff s fraudulent onzi scheme until it all fell apart interspersed with interviews with rominent Conta and Boehme Porcelain Identification and Value Guide personalities It turns out that overall I was doomed to be disappointed with this bookFor me he makes far too many generalisations often jumping to ill thought out judgements and conclusions whilst omitting key variables and all too keen to let off those with responsibilities torevent abuse The Rodeo Drive to Raja Bazaar problem is that he sounds frighteninglylausible and genial in the manner in which he lays out his often controversial oorly researched thinking so disarmingly seductive and there are occasions that I cannot deny he is certainly interesting and thought rovoking The latter is insufficient for me to recommend this tome to other readers I would J.R.R. Tolkien prefer to direct readers to the many far expert and well thought out othersychological studies on the complexities of human communication which in my view will turn out to be a helpful and roductive experience and additionally are academically rigorous Many thanks to Penguin UK for an ARC TW detailed descriptions of rape and edophiliaIf it were Prophets Unarmed: Chinese Trotskyists in Revolution, War, Jail, and the Return from Limbo possible to give a book negative stars this would be a 10 for meMalcolm Gladwell is incredibly influential From books toodcasts to TED talks he seems to be everywhere and his story based approach reaches a large number of The Labyrinth people who don t uestion his credentials as a journalist with no scientific training who writes about science I enjoyed Blink and Outliers despite the often dodgy claims Gladwell makes based on studies that are smalloorly designed andor not replicable The man does know how to create an engaging narrative and create aha moments that excite the reader And after all he admits he isn t a scientist but instead a storyteller who uses research to augment the stories who The Raven and the Falcon: Youth Versus Old Age in Medieval Arabic Literature places the stories in the lead and the science in a supporting role rather than the other way aroundOkay I hear you shrugging So what Well in Talking to Strangers Gladwell brings his folksy approach and tendency toresent his opinions as truth to a The Humanist Interpretation of Hieroglyphs in the Allegorical Studies of the Renaissance: With a Focus on the Triumphal Arch of Maximilian I painful and horrifying subject sexual abuse The book explores our inability to tell wheneople are lying especially when they are confident and lack obvious tells eg shifty eyes covered mouth Gladwell suggests most The Reproductive Bargain: Deciphering the Enigma of Japanese Capitalism people default to truth when interacting with strangers and that considerable evidence is needed before we believe someone is lying Moreover he feels this approach is vital to our social compact By contrast he believes approachingeople with distrust as a default such as Your Life Still Counts: How God Uses Your Past to Create a Beautiful Future police officers who see everyerson as a Piers Plowman: A New Translation of the B-Text pote. Malcolm Gladwell host of theodcast Revisionist History and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Outliers offers a owerful examination of our interactions with strangers and why they often go wrongHow did Fidel Castro fool the CIA for a generation Why did Neville Chamberlain think he could trust Adolf Hitler Why are campus sexual assaults on the rise Do television sitcoms teach us something about the way we relate to each other that isn't trueWhile Ntial suspect would make normal functioning impossible In making his case Gladwell describes two cases of serial edophiles who operated for decades before being caught Larry Nassar the doctor who molested young female gymnasts in his care often in the resence of their Diari parents and Jerry Sandusky the coach who sodomized young boys in his sportsrograms and foster care Reading these stories which described how the young victims were raped and assaulted in age after age of excruciating detail made me want to scrub my brain with bleach And then we get to Gladwell s conclusion that our inability to detect lies means that we should not be too harsh in judging the various adults who failed to A Long the Krommerun: Selected Papers from the Utrecht James Joyce Symposium protect children who were being sexually assaulted Here s how heuts it those victimized by default to truth deserve our sympathy not our censureTo clarify the victims in this sentence are not the children who were raped but the adults Lancelot parents teachers employers ofedophiles who ignored warning signs and suspicious behavior for years People who buried evidence People who dismissed the discomfort expressed by the children who lacked the vocabulary to explain the horror of being violated by an adult in a Scorch position of trustGraham Spanier the former Penn President was told by one of his own employees that Sandusky was seen in the shower with a young boy at night in deserted gym facilities with his body right up against the child He did not go to theolice He did not call Child Services He accepted the suggestion from another staff member that Sandusky was just horsing around and let the matter drop Gladwell has a lot of sympathy for Spanier stating Labour Markets, Identities, Controversies people liked Grahman Spanier It s why he had such a brilliant career It s why you and I would want to work for him We want Graham Spanier as our President We think we want our guardians to be alert to every suspicion We blame them when they default to truthwithout stopping to consider the conseuences of those actions Actually no I don t want Spanier as my university President Or anywhere except in arison cell Nor do I think any conseuences could be worse than a society that allows children to be abused A little distrust or a trust but verify approach is a good thing when the vulnerable are involvedGladwell also spends uite a bit of time throwing doubt on the stories of the boys victimized by Sandusky noting contradictions and inconsistencies Gladwell is not a trained Marrane Et Marronne: La Co-Ecriture Reversible D Andre Et de Simone Schwarz-Bart psychologistsychiatrist or a trauma abuse counselor He has zero experience in dealing with the victims of sexual abuse Contradictory stories are common in cases of child molestation as the victims often try to repress or justify their abuse Gladwell did not This Deleuzian Century personally know any of the children involved It s unclear if he knows anyone who has suffered from sexual abuse Yet he feels it is appropriate to suggest that the victims were lying or wrong and that Spanier was mistreated for being too trusting Later in the book he defends rapists including Brock Turner In case the name rings a bell that was the frat guy who undressed fingered and tried to rape an unconscious woman behind a dumpster only to be scared off by two other students Gladwell feels that alcohol and mixed signals are mainly responsible for rape Brock s victim calls for sensitively training on college campuses to help men learn to respect women and says that while heavy drinking was a factor in what happened it was not the reason for her rape Herowerful open letter to the court made me cry Yet Gladwell disagrees with her assessment of why the rape happened statingBrock Turner was asked to do something of crucial importance that night to make sense of a stranger s desires and motivations That is a hard task for all of us under the best circumstances Asking a drunk and immature nineteen year old to do that in the hyper sexualized chaos of a frat Women's Romantic Theatre and Drama: History, Agency, and Performativity party is an invitation to disasterNot raping someone is a hard task Gladwell acknowledges harm was done but he also asks whether the victim flirted with Brock whether she struggled or whether she stumbled outside willingly I agree alcohol clouds judgement and have noroblem limiting it as Tell Me What You Want part of a strategy to address assault on campus But a good man doesn t rape a women regardless of how much he has been drinking At best limiting alcohol might deter monsters like Brock by getting them to think about theossible conseuences of their actions eg jailReading this book was like wading through a sewer The fact that someone with Gladwell s influence is using his Water in Social Imagination: From Technological Optimism to Contemporary Environmentalism platform to excuseeople complicit in sexual assault is disgusting I will certainly never read anything by Gladwell againFor on Gladwell s misrepresentation of science on him as an apologist for abusers I always feel lucky when I get to read a book before its official Sagwitch: Shoshone Chieftain, Mormon Elder, 1822-1887 publication date A fascinating accessible examination of the miscommunications that can arise when we talk to strangers We re going to interview Malcolm Gladwell for the Happierodcast can t wait for that 922019 I m knocking this down to two stars Gladwell s really bad takes on things like race and sexual assault just don t deserve an okay ratingWow does this book ever suffer from a severe case of foot in mouth disease I almost didn t make it ast the introduction In my re Le rendez-vous publication copy Gladwell writes The Sandra Bland case came in the middle of a strange interlude in Americanublic life "And Then Goes On "then goes on discuss a series of cases of Molotov Mouths: Explosive New Writing police violence against blackeople that happened around 2014 Strange interlude ReallyThat hrasing suggests that this treatment was some sort of aberration in American history and that the violence only happened during the few years he references Did Gladwell really mean to ignore America s long history of this roblem I don t think so I think he may have meant that the attention All Our Trials: Prisons, Policing, and the Feminist Fight to End Violence paid toolice violence was unusual but dude choose your words much carefullyLater on there are some good Discovering Our Past California Edition: Medieval And Early Modern Times points made about how and why we tend to misunderstand each other But again I almostut the book down this time while reading the chapter on the Brock Turner sexual assault case *Without Going Into Detail That Chapter Could Only Have Been * going into detail that chapter could only have been by someone who s buried his head in the sand over the In This Land: The Purple Book, Volume Four past five years or soIt s tough to ignore theroblematic elements of Talking to Strangers I could absolutely see the discussion of the causes of sexual assault offending some readers to the oint that they abandon the book altogether I ve definitely enjoyed other books by the author a lot than this one Three stars but that s being generous Thanks to NetGalley and Little Brown and Company for giving me a DRC of this book which will be available for urchase on September 10th Never Trust a Blood Relative Talking to Strangers is an elaboration of a simple trivial idea It s very difficult to tell when The Houdini Solution: Put Creativity and Innovation to work by thinking inside the box people are lying According to Timothy Levine the academicsycho As I sat at the airport head deep in a book I suddenly heard Hi What To my left stood a handsome man I just thought I should say hi since I see you re reading Talking to Strangers I too thought Malcolm Gladwell s new book was going to teach me how to literally talk with Cybercrime and Digital Forensics: An Introduction people I don t know but as always he turns all my assumptions on their head with this book If that s what the book was about that stranger and I might be on a date by now If I can convince you of one thing in this book let it be this Strangers are not easy We think we can easily see into the hearts of others based on the flimsiest of cluesAt the 2019 book conference BookExpo America Malcolmointed out that the roblems exemplified by the death of Sandra Bland a black woman arrested by a white oliceman are everywhere not just in the darkest areas of America It lies not only with these individuals but within each of us In his book he takes huge scandals and who doesn t love to read about a scandal reaches deep inside like you would your skinniest jeans and then The Meaning of Difference: American Constructions of Race, Sex and Gender, Social Class, Sexual Orientation, and Disability pulls them inside out Except that when he does this you suddenly realize your jeans had actually been inside out before It is mind bending which means that you have to follow along to at leastage 54 before you start to understand where Malcolm is going You will either find this too convoluted to keep going at some One Small Step: An Anthology of Discoveries point or you will read it all in one sitting as I did flying from NY to CA My one frustration with this book is that at the very end Malcolm spends only 2ages 2 saying what we should do about all he just taught us After speeding through the book that feels like an abrupt stop On the other hand I can t stop thinking about what he reveals along the way I can t unsee what he has shown me and now my framework of looking at the world is different And isn t that the mission of any good bookSPOILER ALERT For those of you who don t keep reading the book here are my key insights But to really understand what Malcolm argues happened in cases like Fidel Castro s fooling of the CIA the deceptions of Bernie Madoff the trial of Amanda Knox the suicide of Sylvia Plath the Jerry Sandusky edophilia scandal and the death of Sandra Bl I DNF d this book after reading too many cringey statements from Gladwell He wants to categorize a whole range of evils from the victimization of unarmed black eople Sandra Bland to women being raped at colleges arties Brock Turner as mere communication issues between eople Sure there might be some element of miscommunication but it completely misses the Birds point that there are much largerroblems and bigger things going on beyond that I get that he s trying to cram these situations into his Tales from the Ballpark Tales from the Ballpark Tales from the Ballpark: More of the Greatest True Baseball Stories Ever Told More of the Greatest True Baseball Stories Ever Told More of the Greatest True Baseball Stories Ever Told premise in order to write this book but the result is completely tone deaf and helps to justify crimes and ignorance Instead of encouragingeople to be educated on things the don t understand like consent or why Isocrates I (The Oratory of Classical Greece, vol. 4) prejudice against blackeople can lead to excessive force against them Gladwell chalks it up to communication barriersTo be clear Gladwell doesn t try to say that Bland was at fault for her death but rather that the offic. Ackling these uestions Malcolm Gladwell was not solely writing a book for the Robot Programming: A Practical Guide to Behavior-Based Robotics page He was alsoroducing for the ear In the audiobook version of Talking to Strangers you'll hear the voices of Perfect Phrases for Writing Company Announcements: Hundreds of Ready-to-Use Phrases for Powerful Internal and External Communications people he interviewed scientists criminologists militarysychologists Court transcripts are brought to life with re enactments You actually hear the contentious arrest of Sandra Bland by the side of the road in Texas As Gladwell revisits the deceptions of Bernie Madoff. ,


Er didn t Versailles properly de escalate However he also takes time to explain why race had nothing to do with the situation For example he ignores the mountain of evidence that shows that blackeople are routinely ulled over freuently Instead Gladwell explicitly states that the officer s decision was not race motivated However he reaches this conclusion based on nothing His sole support for that statement is the statistic that shows this officer often wrote tickets to the tune of 1557 just that year but it s a meaningless number that doesn t rove anything if we don t know if those tickets were evenly or fairly distributed There s also the uestion of whether this book states anything new The idea that black The Mystery of the Two-Toed Pigeon people are treated exactly the same as everyone else and racism is a myth or that women who drink areartially to blame for being raped are two extremely old arguments There s nothing new or interesting about it It s old tired and not worth anyone s time There s also uestionable logical leaps that Gladwell makes to Rack Ruin put forth his antiuated arguments Mystifyingly a survey showing thateople have different ideas on what constitutes consent leads him to the conclusion that there are no rules when it comes to consent Umm what So if I took a survey that showed that most Espenlaub people don t know where the Ukraine is located does that mean the Ukraine has no location or does it mean thateople are ignorant Gladwell s tortured logic for the sake of justifying rape is mind boggling Skip this awful intellectually vapid book UPDATE 92319I have now changed this to one star The I read about this and other Splendid Solution pseudosych crap he ushesno no no The enjoyment of some arts of the book does not outweigh the total garbage of arts of it Two examples are linked below with a articularly shocking tidbit from one most important How to Be Alone part of the first link Gladwell You know I have that chapter on Jerry Sandusky in my book and it s all about how I feel the leadership of Penn State was totally outrageously attacked over this I think they re blamelessSimmons YeahGladwell But with Joe Paterno Joe Paterno essentially did nothing wrong He hears the allegation and immediately tells his superiors and the critiue of Joe Paterno was essentially Why was a 75 year old football coach not behaving towards a suspectededophile with the savvy and insight of a sychiatrist Simmons RightGladwell He s a football coach He doesn t even know what the word there was this hilarious regretful sigh hilarious there was this moment in I think one of the trial transcripts where someone was asked Did you use when you went to the uarterback who goes to Paterno Mcueary the former uarterback goes to Paterno to tell him this allegation Did you use the word sodomy And he s like No I didn t use the word sodomy And then there s this sort of thing I think where they re wondering whether Paterno actually knew what the word sodomy was laughingSimmons RightGladwell He doesn t He s been thinking football 24 hours a day 365 days a year for 60 years He is not going to be alert to the darkness inside the heart of one of his former coaches You can t ask him to do that That s why you have mental health rofessionals or fit trained The Queen I psychologists in the world to handle those kind ofroblems We do this thing sometimes when a crisis happens when we suddenly expect our leaders to be skilled at absolutely every job under the sun They re not NO I JUST EXPECT LEADERS TO HAVE A FEW BRAIN CELLS THEY CAN POOL TOGETHER TO UNDERSTAND APPROPRIATE RELATIONSHIPS WWWWTTTF Also as a teacher and there are many other rofessions that wear many hats doctors nurses social workers business owners entrepreneurs literally almost any job I am ABSOLUTELY expected To Perform Than One Specific Role I perform than one specific role I data help with emotions involve the community report suspected abuse and so on As do many other underpaid and undervalued rofessions So it s DISGUSTING and insulting to literally everyone to imply we can allow and expect rich football coaches to be all aw shucks I was only thinking about my next game Ugh The ositive is Gladwell always keeps me interested He somehow finds the most interesting anecdotes and stories Even the ones you have heard before he has a way of making them seem like there is always than meets the eye and that they are interesting I was never bored listening to this because even if you don t like one section he s almost on to something elseBut thenHis thing is to take stories that on the surface are completely unrelated and tries to jam them together to fit his central thesis In this book the main thesis is the idea that we can t appropriately understandanalyze strangers because we try to get them to fit in a box That doesn t work because we don t understand everything about that erson and their contextbackground For example If a erson is mean he acts like If a erson is a crook he will act Them acting opposite of what we assume they should act like causes us to misjudge them and get the wrong idea Well surely this is not a new idea To me many of the examples he use either don t fit this have many other factors involved or at times he even contradicts his own theoriesLet s start with Sandra Bland His favored incident in the book His argument here is that she didn t fit the idea of law abiding citizen the cop had in his head when he Gutsy Girls: Young Women Who Dare pulled her over and it caused him to be afraid and assume she was a criminal She was shifty irritable and generally not happy to beulled over Well who is I ve had some tickets in my day and I have only once been what would be called a bit snappy to a cop but even when olite I generally always feel on edge I ve even cried before when I was struggling with money and afraid of getting a ticket I don t want a ticket and if I m getting one I want the situation to be over ASAP Don t we all So compare me to Sandra who as a black woman has a whole extra level "of fear of the situation as well as the fact that she has had many "fear of the situation as well as the fact that she has had many stops than I over generally minor stuff These cost her a lot of money and are very stressful Even if the officer didn t know she got stopped often in the ast anyone who has been Watching The News LIKE EVER Knows African Americans May At the news LIKE EVER knows African Americans may at act nervous or aggregated than white drivers because of cases like Freddie Gray Michael Brown etc etc And if ANYONE knows this it damn well would and should be a cop How are we to believe he had no clue about the racial subtext of Little Scarlet (Easy Rawlins pulling over African American drivers Beyond the facts of race cops should know about de escalation which if you hear the tape he did not do this at all He didn t even attempt it Let s recall she isulled over for not signaling which Gladwell fully admits the cop caused by tailing her Which adds to her irritation He gets etty with her over lighting a cigarette and screams at her to step out of the car over it So this seudo Never Sweeter psych theory that she isn t acting as he would expect and it made him terrified of her is justBS I don t discount cops have a hard job and it s harder than we can ever know to stay calm and read strangers Butbutthis was literally all on the cop If me being an average citizen knows about deescalation and how racelays a role in traffic stops no way he did not Was she a little rude Maybe but ublic service employees cops teachers nurses etc have to be able to deal with eople who are a little rude You don t scream at them to get out of the car or say you are going to light them up or say good when they tell you they have epilepsy and they are worried for their health now I also don t think he was terrified of her and if he was and that s all it took he s either racist has ower issues or just an awful cop Or all of the above No sych about it She should never have walked away with felony chargesTo be fair he is not at happy with how the cop acted that day but I am bothered by his over analysis of the cop Like this Steam Heat psychology explains his bad behavior Then comes Jerry Sandusky REALLY Is this the hill you wanna die on Malcolm That Sandusky was unfairly treated Is itossible he is innocent I guess Save video tape of someone committing a crime and dozens of witnesses it s The Literary Language of Shakespeare possible ANY convicted criminal could be innocent I tried really hard to keep an open mind but it s never even clear WHY he believes this so strongly He says it s nothing like the Larry Nassar case which it is often compared to Why does a crime have to be very similar to another crime of it s type to be true He says they had victims Those victims also never waver in their stories and told manyeople over the years First of all those were girls and these are all boys One would imagine they may behave differently in the situation Second of all and hear me out is it ossible these victims of assault didn t act the way Gladwell felt victims of assault should act Which is his whole theory we have set ideas of how eople should act in certain situations and yet he comes out on the other side implying Sandusky may be innocent Then also what exactly is the naked showering with slapping sounds if not sex Just horseplay More BS and if it was what adult man would not know horseplay of that manner with a child is destined to be construed as something else He never even comes down or attempts to explain why a grown man would engage in naked horseplay with a child Then of course Brock Turner Yes college kids should Old Electrical Wiring: Evaluating, Repairing, and Upgrading Dated Systems probably drink less alcohol Wow Revolutionary The fact he has to say outright it s not victim blaming reveals he knows what shaky ground he is onJust ugh He tries sooooo hard and has so many holes and flaws in his arguments I wish he would just tell the stories and stop trying to be intellectual about it I was trying to work through my thoughts on this book when Goodreads did an interview with Malcolm Gladwell and this one thing he said just made everything clear for me I ve never been a writer who s looked toersuade his readers I m interested in capturing their interest and curiosity Because truthfully I don t know that Gladwell did fully. The trial of Amanda Knox and the suicide of Sylvia Plath you hear directly from many of the ソードアート・オンライン 1 (Sword Art Online Light Novel, players in these real life tragedies There's even a theme song Janelle Monae's Hell You TalmboutSomething is very wrong Gladwell argues with the tools and strategies we use to make sense ofeople we don't know And because we don't know how to talk to strangers we are inviting conflict and misunderstanding in ways that have a Being Vegan profound effect on our lives and our worl.
