Matt Walsh is wrong about: Micro-aggressions

Imagine being subjected to some seemingly small form of prejudice or micro-aggression every day of your life. Imagine not being able to escape it. Imagine being told that when you experience these things that you "need to get a thicker skin", "stop being so sensitive", or "learn to take a joke", which are all things Matt says. Some, if not most, of the people Matt is passing judgement on have been tortured with these micro-aggressions for a long time, and some are at the point where each one sets something off. Doubtless, there are people in this country who are too sensitive or get offended too often, but for the rest of us, micro-aggressions are a very real thing, and not the product of desiring pity or being bored.

Matt Walsh is wrong about: Violence against women

For thoughtful people, the reason why male assaults on females deserve our particular attention is because there is a sad history of those in power — which for most of history has meant men — abusing those who don't have the same amount of power — which for most of history has meant women. It's the same reason that the public is so outraged by the recent Ferguson shooting. Other similar situations that involved a white victim are equally awful. But, we cannot ignore history, and there has been a long, horrible, and continuing history of oppression, discrimination, and brutality directed from white people toward black people, and the knowledge of that history colors the present.

Matt Walsh is wrong about: Saving the world

The problem with Walsh isn’t that there’s so much he doesn’t understand. The problem is that he is incredibly unaware of how much he doesn’t understand. He doesn’t want to understand. He doesn’t want to understand you; he wants you to be more like him. One gets the feeling that if asked to walk a mile in someone’s shoes, Walsh would literally take said person’s shoes, put them on, and walk for exactly one mile. “There,” he might say, “Now do you see that you should just ____?“

Matt Walsh Is Wrong About: “Alcohol-Fused Humping Sessions”

Matt starts by bemoaning the state of sexuality in today’s America. You see, Matt’s a real keen observer of the human condition. He sees and knows all, including what’s going on in your bedroom, and between you and me, he is not pleased. That’s something to keep you up at night: Matt Walsh thinks you’re bad at sex. Why does he hate the sex you’re having? Let’s take a look at a few reasons.

Matt Walsh is wrong about: The Black Community

As I write this, the Ferguson Police are requesting that people not hold protests or vigils. You tell me, Matt, what constructive things with any chance of success are left for the black community to do when no one is willing to acknowledge our pain and when the system closes off our legitimate avenues for seeking redress.

Matt Walsh is Wrong About: Spiritual Struggles

This post addresses the final aspect of Robin Williams' death that Walsh claims is intrinsic in approaching suicide and depression: spirituality. Since Matt, many of his readers, and I share similar Judeo-Christian backgrounds, my approach here stems from that common thread in the hopes of further clarifying Walsh's departure from the Christian mores he claims to uphold.

Matt Walsh Is Wrong About: Suicide and Depression

A purposefully controversial post with a clickbait title less than a day after Mr. Williams’ suicide? What Matt lacks in empathy and tact he makes up for in narcissism and self-promotion. Matt Walsh is wrong about suicide and depression. Saying that suicide is a choice, while semantically accurate, is extremely misleading and glosses over some very important nuances. Matt is also wrong in claiming that joy is the cure for depression.

A quick note about Matt’s Robin Williams post

This is a public service announcement: Matt Walsh is wrong. Depression is not trivial or chosen. Depression is not cured by simply choosing joy. There is help. There is hope. You are not alone. It isn't your fault. Today's post will not go unanswered. There are actually several people who have volunteered to reply to Matt's latest post about Robin Williams' death. Watch for these posts over the next few days.
