Ethics of Shoplifting From Self-Checkout Kiosks With Xenogothic

From the rap sheet that nearly got me fired. I thought I made a very good case!

"Tonight's livestreamed disquisition will be on the ethics of shoplifting from self-checkout kiosks. Hint: I'm in favor. But I often feel guilty, so I need to think this through clearly and explicitly. Then we will be joined by @Xenogothic, a denizen of "acc twitter" and "cave twitter" and the batshit blogosphere. I believe Xenogothic is kind of an anti-leftist leftist type, kind of like me maybe, but I'm not really sure. Only one way to find out... Xenogothic's blog is at https://xenogothic.com

My Interview on Abortion/Necrophilia with Katie Way for Babe.net

I was interviewed by Katie Way (formerly of Babe.net) after one of my nuclear tweets went viral. Given the role this tweet played in my eventual departure from academia, I'm posting this interview (with permission from Ms. Way) for anyone interested in the larger story. It's pretty interesting as an artifact of media culture in the year 2018.
