At this Portland Bakery, White Guilt Poisons the Batter - Quillette
The menu at the Back to Eden Bakery in Portland, Ore. features vegan and gluten-free ice cream, cookies and cupcakes, but it might as well itemize its impeccable intersectional credentials. Before hungry customers even set foot in the small shop in north Portland, they are confronted with a battery of progressive signs on a storefront reminiscent of a college equity office. “Safe space,” one of them proudly declares. “Black Lives Matter,” another reminds us. In the name of inclusivity, others carefully list all the different types of identity that are welcome. The bakery is owned by John Blomgren and Garrett Jones, a queer-identified couple. Since their business first opened its doors in 2009 and subsequently expanded, it has unsurprisingly found commercial success among Portland’s (in)famously progressive population.

UC Berkeley should be ashamed after Milo Yiannopoulos' canceled speech - LA Times
To the editor: Martin Luther King Jr. spoke of the trajectory of history as an arc. The actions of a handful of people at UC Berkeley in reaction to a planned speech by right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos raise grave doubts in my mind. (“The No Free Speech Movement at Berkeley,” editorial, Feb. 3)

The Gamergate wars over Wikipedia show that Wikipedia's "neutrality" measure might be upheld at the expense of truth.
As a media phenomenon, Gamergate may have died out a few months ago, but that doesn’t mean the die-hard Gamergaters have gone away. Lauren Williams at ThinkProgress has written an in-depth investigation of how Gamergaters have managed to get five Wikipedia editors banned or restricted from editing Wikipedia—for tweaking the Wikipedia pages of feminist critics and developers to erase slander that anti-feminists were trying to pass off as factual information.

How 'Concept Creep' Made Americans So Sensitive to Harm - The Atlantic
A mother leaves her son in the car while popping into a store at a strip mall. She is charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. A high school senior complains to her Facebook friends about a teacher and is suspended for “cyberbullying.” Students at Wellesley start a petition calling for the removal of a statue of a man in his underwear, claiming that the art piece caused them emotional trauma. So many residents of Santa Monica, California, claim to need emotional support animals that the local farmer’s market warns against service dog fraud.

if you’re not careful who’s in and who’s out becomes the only question | Fredrik deBoer
These conditions, taken to a certain extreme, mean that eventually you simply lose the ability to communicate with other human beings from outside of your in-group. After all, for a large majority of the people who use the term, bro is a cherished term of endearment. This is part of the point of using the term performatively: when you use bro in a way that indicates that you see bros as inherently ridiculous, you are necessarily distinguishing yourself from most people who use it affectionately. You assert your in-group identity and deny it to others. The problem is that there’s a whole lot more of them than you.

I Have Met the Enemy, and He Is Easily Terrified - Taki's Magazine
Late-stage leftist moral hysteria has recently achieved an unprecedented level of earsplitting shrillness. To me, this suggests that the quixotic legions of social-justice crusaders aren’t quite so confident they’re on the right side of history after all.
