Issues with this page[edit]

While I do appreciate the effort of the people who put time into making this article, it doesn't really hold up to the rationalwiki standard in my opinion. It reads like a category of people Destiny has debated with a bit of stuff at the end that doesn't really cap things off. This article needs more explanation as to why Destiny did a good or bad job at debating the people listed and more information on his rhetoric or accomplishments/failures. As of now, it seems like more of a reflection of the writer's opinions than of the actual content of the person.

I do understand I've written a bit on this article, but my edits were mainly restructuring what people had already articulated. So please don't call me a hypocrite.

Oxyaena (again, for the n-th time)[edit]

@Oxyaena Undo your revert and give me reasons to modify it. Don't just revert it.— Unsigned, by: GR / talk / contribs

His position on ableism is now more complicated[edit]

One of his general positions is described as "He seems to have a problem with not using ableist slurs.", but since this was added his position seems to have changed. On his community discord ableist slurs are banned, but this seems to be at odds with the fact that he will still, on occasion, uses them himself. From a quick search, the only thing I can find where he addresses his position on ableist slurs are at this link https://youtu.be/4UAvbomI6hc?t=911, in which he explains that using ableist slurs is probably bad. — Unsigned, by: 104.38.179.165 / talk / contribs

"He wrote a 10,000-word manifesto justifying the use of the n-word in-private among people who were not black."[edit]

Why does this link to a Tweet and not to the "manifesto" the Tweeter is referring to? I personally don't believe the characterization by them is fair, it's more of a lefty manifesto with some public vs private language (read: n-word justifying) thrown in there. — Unsigned, by: 122.148.234.17 / talk / contribs

Possible New Addition to Page[edit]

Destiny doesn't think Ben Shapiro is racist: https://twitter.com/OOCdestiny/status/1360352486045925381

He also called Big Joel "subhuman" for tweeting about their debate afterwards, thinks the left engages in as much disinformation as the right, and thinks PhilosophyTube should delete her channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4W3q5fs_97k

Should we add these to the page? — Unsigned, by: 2605:6400:20:1993:0:0:0:0 / talk

Seems like he also resorts to deontology instead of utilitarianism in this debate. — Unsigned, by: 2A0B:F4C0:16C:5:0:0:0:1 / talk

He is debating Nick Fuentes on the Killstream this Friday[edit]

Should be a good show. --2001:8003:DDAA:5A00:CFB:ECEB:840D:E951 (talk) 08:52, 15 March 2022 (UTC)
