You're falsely equating emotional with irrational. You can be rational and skeptical while being emotional as well.

This is great! I've been poking around the site a bit more and like it a lot. I've seen so many sites where a reddit exodus takes it off the ground for a bit and then the posts slowly dwindle to a trickle.. or sites where a couple of people post but there's little community interaction. So I'm happy to hear there's a strong community history here. Thanks for making this site!
I had my Jacobin subscription sent to my mom's house and she joked I was trying to get her on a list. Considering her rant about Jill Stein, she would skin me alive if she knew I didn't vote for Clinton in 2016. I just smile and nod when she goes on about how brilliant Pelosi's 'sarcastic clapping' was, and try to offer counter points to some things.

/r/Anarchism got me here. I've been looking for a site like this for ages, I hope it takes off for more than a minute

I presented my master's thesis on Monday and it actually went pretty well! I got a lot of compliments from my friends afterwords, and my supervisors seemed really happy with my work.
