Tech journo Milo Yiannopoulos has lost his claim to ethics

When he does an opinion piece on a point of active science. (Minus experts to support his specious claims). I have lost my former high regard for him. He became a sophist. Oh, the things I am sent by infuriated research psychologists. You should see how blue the air turned at this one.

Title: Sorry girls! But the smartest people in the world are all men!

Think of the stereotype of trolling - white straight male aka Patriarchy. Did they appropriate the term?
(patronizing Buzzfeed-esque address)+(claim to scientific authority against presumed naive reader)+(geniuses+polymaths subgroup)
= claim: no women (ever, at present or in future)

Operative absolute highlighted for your scorn.

I won’t link to the troll and the article is a patronizing piece of shit. You can tell he has no critical training in the field of data interpretation even if you took a drunken night class 10 years ago for a semester. It’s that painfully bad. Either he didn’t do the research (his actual job) into the history of females in that group, or he would’ve immediately found this, to look for the negative evidence, the black swan OR he knew, he bloody knew and left it out. The disclaimer required. The distinction to be made. One line:

It is fine to critique performance, but impossible to disprove potential.

Rarity speaks nothing of ability. As we say, to omit this distinction would remove all claim to both internal and external validity. Rendering it totally invalid….?
The ethical obligation (journalists take training courses) must have …slipped his mind. To get the clicks from the fake MGTOWs putting down women (a group) as if that has anything to do with individual variance (themselves), as I’ve stated before in excruciating take-down style detail. I believe someone actually linked to me for it, I see clicks on the traffic.
He’s become the enemy, a clickwhore lying about science for political grievance (his ‘side’ doesn’t make it right). He cherry-picked a study like Anita does with male violence and his foundation of relative morality has evaporated.
It would be as specious, unethical and rampantly dishonest as if I had said that, say, drugged-up Ritalin boys were innately retarded instead of <insert alternative nurtured explanation here>.

I guess you could say, it’s about ethics in psychometrics journalism.

After his great and professional work on Gamergate and he pulls this shit.

tyra rooting for you
I feel so betrayed, and I’d been defending him to people, too.

Wikipedia could prove this bitch wrong. WIKIPEDIA. THINK ABOUT THAT.
Here are the actual categories and stratification of IQ scores. Look at the words.

IQcategories1 IQcategories2 IQcategories3

IQcategories4 IQcategories5

I guess the whole research field is fucking wrong, and Milo Yiannopoulos is right.
#GalileoGambit I guess no adult woman is in the Superior Group over IQ130.

Pass Go. Collect your Nobel.

I made a chart too, Milo! About my opinion, of your opinion!

The IFLScientism Crowd will be totes impressed! Because the scientific method is like Mythbusters, anyone can do it! If you do a random thing, like find a thing and write about it, you can throw on a lab coat and call it a day. You earned that degree, that PhD in Internetz. If I write in a diary about an ice cream I just consumed, it’s science! And going by your logic, nobody can claim otherwise! If I claim the ice cream opened a portal to another dimension, and made a moral value judgement that it was, in fact, evil, an evil ice cream, I am under no positive Burden of Proof for this negative opinion, in fact, the burden shifts onto everyone else! Isn’t science fun? You can just make it up, all day! It counts! And I made charts so it’s legit, fam! It has Hindu numerals and shit!
Because dissent isn’t the natural process of scientific progress or anything, it’s a conspiracy theory like Patriarchy!

You would think that a technology journalist, who rely on personal popularity, wouldn’t alienate half the STEM field? How is this a plan for career longevity, exactly? I know people who are now blacklisting him for this, since he clearly doesn’t expect people he works with, in-industry, to have read it.

Milo, if you’re reading this;tyra take responsibility

UPDATE: 48h later, I can see comments defending Milo for the article.
Comments from feminists. I leave you to your conclusions.

Article: 10 lessons for the corrupt ‘journalists’ in #gamergate

http://whatculture.com/gaming/10-lessons-the-gaming-industry-must-learn-from-gamergate.php

My shorter version;
#10 Anyone who knows what a 4chan is doesn’t buy a 4chan troll’s conveniently leaked and edited chatlogs.
#9 Calling anyone who disagrees with you a misogynist no longer works.
#8 No one gives a shit about pseudonym Zoe Quinn anymore, that was 2 weeks ago.
#7 #NotYourShield is being ignored by the very people who need to hear it.
#6 Blocking is not suitable professional retort from a journalist on their own ethics.
#5 Attacking gamers who pay you is not a wise career move.
#4 This is not going away, when you ban discussion, the Streisand Effect applies.
#3 This is a big issue if you bother to look into it, awards may have been rigged.
#2 These ‘bad’ people are actually doing the charity work and funding it.
#1 It’s being dragged into mainstream attention, and these ‘bloggers’ when questioned / ‘journalists’ when they want free stuff are being held accountable. We have won. These places are dead to the core demo, real gamers no longer trust them.

Polygon has also lost an advertiser as #GamerGate advocates emailed them with their concerns.

The most important thing to remember from all this is that gaming journalists need gamers, but gamers certainly don’t need them.

 

Zoe Quinn, 4chan user, “finds” 4chan chatlogs saying she was set up

Did the entirety of 4chan, an anonymous website, where she has posted about herself, also sleep with her married boss for positive promotion of her subpar ‘work’?

But this isn’t about her. Primer: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/2014/09/09/GamerGate-Why-Gaming-Journalists-Keep-Dragging-Zoe-Quinns-Sex-Life-into-the-Spotlight
She’s trying to get attention back on her again for $$$$$ because the matter of journalistic ethics and integrity is coming to light.

See the number of official mainstream news sites beginning to cover this story finally? About 2 weeks after the incestuous corruption in the gaming industry broke? Recent, aren’t they? Past 48 hours has been the boost, to be precise. After pseud ZQ blamed 4chan.

For example: Wired, 10th Sept, Telegraph, 10th Sept.

Neatly, she now complains all dissent is 4chan. The website she has visited herself and posted on for an evening. #NotYourShield people? You aren’t real.

It’s odd how she just happened to be there at the exact same time, every time, in REAL TIME, to capture these screencaps. Does she sleep? Does she have other people ‘working’ on this? Could she have put half the same effort into her actual work? She also doesn’t know the meaning of a “raid”, and has the same inaccurate understanding as the writer of these 4chan caps. Pure coincidence?

I suppose the discrepancies between what she screencapped as “from 4chan” and the actual logs, http://archive.today/Ler4O matter not a whit, hm? Cos who can edit pictures on the internet? That’s silly talk. Point by point explanation of wrongness? http://i.imgur.com/g385IJM.jpg I live to serve.

Signal Boost, you beautiful woman. Add it to #NotYourShield, peeps. We want ethics.

There are ethical questions about people [DS: ‘journalists’] that we feel need to be addressed. …We knew bringing this project out …would also put us in the crosshairs.
