Start a dox thread for that. I'm sure you'll make some progress if you get enough of the autists of Oxford to labour towards your goals.

Back in the day, there were only four Oxford pages: Oxmeme, Memeing Spires, Oxlove, and Oxfeud. One of these didn't have a shield at all; Oxmeme and Oxfeud had the circle, whilst Oxlove had the shield. Then, the admins of Oxlove decided to make Oxfess to get more likes. Oxfess was a nice middle ground between the sappy inanity of Oxlove and the 'triggering' of Oxfeud, so it was the most popular.

Then all the stupid spin-off pages were made by their own budding entrepreneurs, and because 90% of them lacked any ability to use Photoshop/Gimp, they went for a low-tier MS Paint edit of the shield because that was easiest.

If you were a real autist, you would support the circle. The so-called 'structural uniformity' is the same level of cultural marxism that you should already hate.

A tradthot is a woman who feigns being moralistic and old-fashioned by sticking to hot-button topics that the right will generally agree with, whilst actually being promiscuous and has no intent to be traditional (starting a family, having kids, etc).

Does anyone know anywhere I can meet more traditional women in Oxford? I've no interest in dating around or stuff, I just want to find an intelligent and compassionate woman to marry and start a large family with with me as the breadwinner and her as the housewife.

Obviously you can't just go from 0 to 10 instantly, such women aren't a big homogeneous block sharing the same characteristics, and I may have to develop myself further to be worthy of them; but right now I'm having a lot of difficulty finding women who share my values and goals with in the first place atm.

Know any societies, places, or social events where you'd find a lot of these women?

Is there a free speech club in Oxford? One where you would not be attacked over , for example, questioning PC culture?

 No.33

 No.37

Tangentially related:

Anyone interested in a sort of a gathering that allows for an aggressive and free-form arena? I was thinking a verbal fight-club sort of deal. All language is allowed, civility is actively discouraged, ad-homs and shittalking are the norm. No recording, and just a single referee to keep things flowing.

I feel as if there's a lot of pent-up stress that the saccharine civility of this city builds up. It'd be cool if we could get a few dozen people just going at it, letting out their anger on whatever topic.

I liked the articles, presuming what he is saying is true. If phil department is bluntly changing the reading list to accommodate more female writers just because they are female and with no basis for the magical "40%" number then it is absolutely awful.

Oh, and this is the top most comment on the facebook post of this article. Really disappointing to see such a demeaning reply being so popular.

Hi, I was wondering what is the opinion of Jordan Peterson in Oxford?

I am a science student so I don't find time to read up on various topics Dr. Peterson is discussing in his online videos, but I find things he says (not everything but most things) sound very reasonable. So I would like to hear opinions of students who are actually studying related subjects to what Peterson is talking about.

I shall boldly assume that students at Oxford are intelligent individuals who are able to express their thoughts with an aid of well based arguments.

 No.14

For phil, he's working well outside of the analytical tradition and doesn't really have the analytical rigour that comes with it. His written works and lectures are more like meandering strolls than concise arguments; pleasant, but he seems to work off the back of heuristics and rules of thumb more than any philosophers working in the anglosphere.

I think there's hope for his project, but it would require a lot of work to make it stand up to the sort of standards you get in analytic phil. But I think he's got a lot to say, and a lot of moral and political phil these days is looking a lot towards their relationship with psych, so he's pretty on the curve. See: Haidt and Moral Foundations Theory.


 No.20

that's a fair point from phil perspective as his more philosophical views even to me seem to be less well based

but then again, he is a psychology professor, not an academic in phil.

i am curious what are the view of his more controversial statements? about gender pronouns and freedom of speech or about the whole new age tribalism?


 No.27

He's a reactionary hack, pedalling a cocktail of psychobabble and unoriginal self-help advice.

Look at the brooding, desperately-'macho' way he's staring into the camera. Boooring.


 No.28

yeah, no, how about come up with a coherent response?

and yeah, his "self-help" stuff is unoriginal. it's , like, almost self evident things he is saying: "take up responsibility for your life". but it seems that people want and need to hear that. and, in my opinion, it's very interesting what he is tapping into in our society.

How easy would it be to attend lessons at Oxford without being a registered student? do they allow people to audit courses? if not how hard would it be to just sneak in?

 No.23

Lectures at the exam schools would be very easy to attend imo. Just walk in. Probably some other departmental lectures would also be possible if you were to claim that you were studying another subject (hence why you may not be able to fob open the door) and doing interdisciplinary work.

Classes and tutes would be impossible. They're organised and supervised by colleges, who know all their students well.


 No.25

>>22

As long as you enter during 'rush hour' you could attend most science lectures. They all require keycards to get in, but you can just tailgate your way around.

What's your political ideology?

 No.21

hi, I stand as somewhat social-liberal. (there are some ideas that I like in socialism, but don't mistake it with Marxism). I believe in fair equality of opportunity and in the equility before the law. And I like to think that people are different fundamentally. And I am not talking about race, sex, sexual preferences or any of that kind of nonsense, even though those are differences. They are the differences that , in principle, do not ( I think we still need to work a bit towards "do not") decide persons success in life. I am talking about pure merit. Some people are smarter, stronger or faster than others and that's all that matters, because that's what dictates success in our society. And I think that we should strive for a society where where wealth and responsible power could be acquired only through merit.

I was an American visiting scholar (essentially an exchange student) at Oxford in 2003– Holy fuck time flies. Only time I ever felt truly religious (not just spiritual) in my life was going to church in Oxfordshire and listening to the choirs and taking in the Gothic art.
