That Which Is Not

Certain gay people are so committed to victim politics that they carry Police chalk in their man-purses.  And to modern artist, nothing brings more approval than poking a stick into the eyes of people with traditional morals and virtues.

So, when an artist in France decided to create, as the centerpiece of his Christmas display, an inflatable tree that looked awfully much like a giant Fire Island Party Favor, he succeeded in causing offense to the sort of people hip artists love to offend; the sort of people who think a sex toy has no place as the centerpiece of a Christmas display.

And, of course, the gay community gets to pretend that this is all about “anti-gay bigotry.”  “Oh, the hatred! I feel so victimized! Give me a Cosmo and a tax subsidy.”

Anyway…  check out the picture and tell me the artist wasn’t trying to poke people in the eye with this.

Camille Paglia on Hillary Clinton and Snowflake Feminism

TLDR: They’re both horrible disasters. First, on Hillary:

‘It’s an outrage how she’s played the gender card. She is a woman without accomplishment. “I sponsored or co-sponsored 400 bills.” Oh really? These were bills to rename bridges and so forth. And the things she has accomplished have been like the destabilisation of North Africa, causing refugees to flood into Italy… The woman is a disaster!’

Quite so. Only the most naive, the most in denial, the most cynical can deny at this point that Hillary is a crook. But even if her ethics, honesty, and transparency were above reproach, her policies have proven disastrous.  It was Clinton Era policies (i.e. threatening banks with lawsuits if they didn’t give mortgages to people with bad credit and then socializing the costs) that created the housing bubble and the subsequent economic crash. It was Clinton policies of indifference to a growing Al Qaeda threat that produced 9-11. It was Clinton policies as Secretary of State that turned in Libya and Syria into dumpster fires, unleashed a flood of “refugees” into Europe, increased hostility with Russia, and led to the rise of ISIS. Clinton voted for Obamacare, which is blowing up like a Samsung Note 7.  She also intends to flood the USA with illegal immigrants and unvetted migrants from Terrorstan and accelerate Obama policies of sending jobs overseas through over-regulation.

Disaster is mild; Hillary is a catastrophe.

Paglia is also not a fan of Third Wave Snowflake Feminism.

‘My philosophy of feminism,’ the New York-born 69-year-old explains, ‘I call street-smart Amazon feminism. I’m from an immigrant family. The way I was brought up was: the world is a dangerous place; you must learn to defend yourself. You can’t be a fool. You have to stay alert.’ Today, she suggests, middle-class girls are being reared in a precisely contrary fashion: cosseted, indulged and protected from every evil, they become helpless victims when confronted by adversity. ‘We are rocketing backwards here to the Victorian period with this belief that women are not capable of making decisions on their own. This is not feminism — which is to achieve independent thought and action. There will never be equality of the sexes if we think that women are so handicapped they can’t look after themselves.’

Exactly thus.
