Um, what? Professors are more frightening than gangbangers? Where did you grow up?

How does one contaminate minds with androgyny?

The greatest menace, honestly, is the system that made it so that poor black guy from the inner city can barely read and therefore has no job opportunities. Education in poor areas is notoriously bad and needs to be improved.
Of course, this same system also perpetuates your anti-intellectualism so that you focus your ire on entirely the wrong people, thus perpetuating the status quo. So I'm not really sure Proph has thought things through.
@OneEfflued: Presumably by not conforming to gender binaries and thus confusing the Hel out of people. This, somehow, makes it easier to make them serve Satan.

RSTDT or possible twofer. And I agree with the_L.

I never knew PZ Myers taught sociology.
1/17/2012 5:47:06 AM
The greater menace, hmm, let me think...
I vote #3, the lunatic unthinking willfully ignorant christian fundie.

Ignorance and fear are the greatest menances to society.
You seem to have both in spades, "Proph."
1/17/2012 6:32:59 AM
You (and your ilk) are the greatest menace. Fighting against education, not wanting people to learn new ideas, and threatening people with hell for daring to try to learn and expand their mind.
1/17/2012 6:52:09 AM
A winner is you
1/17/2012 6:54:56 AM
Your scenarios are absurd, and rather racist.
Your "black guy", if he has a grill, is most likely able to read quite well. He may threaten to cook you a burger or a steak on his grill.
Your "professor" is utterly incapable of contaminating minds with "androgynous, utilitarian, Marxist horseshit" as "androgynous, utilitarian, Marxist horseshit" does not exist.
1/17/2012 7:06:02 AM
I wonder if this guy knows what utilitarianism is or if he just filed the word under "fancy soundin' liberal claptrap."
1/17/2012 7:13:28 AM
The greater menace is clearly Proph.
1/17/2012 7:15:00 AM
It's retarded shit like you.
1/17/2012 7:15:29 AM
Marxism is not taught in sociology. Some of Marx's work is part of Sociology, but Marxism is generally taught in Philosophy, Historical Philosophy and divergent Economics faculties.

It's a trick question. The most dangerous one is the teabagger legislator who votes to pass a bill that restricts voting rights to rich white people.
1/17/2012 7:26:23 AM
Because judging an act for morality by its outcome (or even intended outcome) is exactly what Jesus wouldn't want, right guys?
1/17/2012 7:32:05 AM
Conspiracy? Close enough.
Yep, it's a trifecta.
1/17/2012 7:35:33 AM
androgynous, utilitarian, Marxist horseshit
Like this Marxist horseshit?
"sell all that you have, and distribute it to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven."
"he went through the corn fields and his disciples plucked the ears of corn and ate."
"Blessed are you poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you that hunger now: for you shall be filled."
"Give to every man that asks of you ... Give, and it shall be given unto you."
"But woe unto you that are rich! for you have [already] received your reward."

@ D Laurier:
I think that Proph is using the word "grill" to refer to dental braces that are made of gold and encrusted with gemstones. Some rappers and hip-hop performers wear them.
1/17/2012 7:44:52 AM
I wasn't aware that Marxist = damned to Hell, or that capitalist = eternally saved. Perhaps you should expand on your religio-economic thesis.
1/17/2012 8:33:47 AM
Seriously, who's a greater menace? Take a moment to think about it. Is it the black guy who works at an inner-city grill, who is struggling to learn to read and will probably be a victim of racial profiling before he's even old enough to vote? Or is it the mild-mannered, white, middle-aged pastor at church who, every Sunday morning, will contaminate the minds of hundreds of impressionable young people in the congregation with racist, sexist, apocalyptic fantasy shit? The former may spit in your hamburger, maybe, in a fit of rage over abusive customers. The latter will deliberately endeavor to destroy the critical thinking abilities of several generations, and congratulate himself for doing it -- and, let's not forget, he doesn't have to pay taxes for it.
Fixed that for you.
1/17/2012 8:34:48 AM
I think it's the ignorant bigot with a child's mind and an adult's platform myself.
1/17/2012 9:01:27 AM
You forgot something though. What's even more dangerous than the above is the religious fanatic in power, able to sway minds both young and old into extremely bigoted, homophobic, and anti-scientific principles through both preaching and at times brute violence.
1/17/2012 9:01:52 AM
"Help me!! Professors are TEACHING my children!!!"
1/17/2012 9:06:42 AM
"Seriously, who's a greater menace? Take a moment to think about it."
I don't need to. As I shall demonstrate in a moment.
"Is it the black guy from the inner city with the grill and the baggy pants who can barely read and will probably wind up in prison before he's even old enough to vote?"
Speaking as a Brit, where the black people I've met here are educated, extremely civilised and are working, tax-paying and therefore contributing to society, I'd have to say... NO. Ever hear of 'Chavs'? Or what you would refer to as 'Wiggers'. One word: ASBO.
"Or is it the mild-mannered, white, middle-aged professor of sociology at the University of Minnesota who, over the course of a career, will contaminate the minds of 50,000 impressionable young students with androgynous, utilitarian, Marxist horseshit?"
British ex-criminal-turned eminent Professor of Sociology, John McVicar. Your argument is invalid.
...now I've provided the proof to the contrary, here is the aforementioned proof to the contrary, re. your initial claim; like I say...:
...I don't need to think about it.
