Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others… Again

Gee, I thought… according the Left… that when you started a business, you surrendered your Constitutional Rights and had to service everybody even if you disagreed with them.

The Portland Press Herald is reporting another company is refusing to do business with Trump supporters and naturally, the ‘tolerant’ left is completely silent. A Maine gas company left a message for customers and potential customers that if they voted for President-elect Trump, they can get their gas from another supplier or freeze. For the record, current temperatures in Maine range from 15 to 20 degrees fahrenheit.

The message says, “Thank you for calling Turner LP gas. If you voted for Donald Trump for president I will no longer be delivering your gas — please find someone else.”

Actually, the left is *not* Being completely silent about this, they’re claiming it’s okay because Trump supporters aren’t a “protected class.”

Doesn’t the very existence of “protected classes” contradict the left’s language about “Equality?” How can there be equality in a system where the state is allowed to say “These people must be serviced, but these others may be refused service?” That would seem to be the very definition of inequality.

On Refusing Service to People Who Don’t Share Your Values

A local tow truck driver said he refused to tow a woman’s car after he saw Bernie Sanders stickers on the vehicle.

Kenneth Shupe said he was called to pick up a woman stranded on I-26 in Asheville on Monday.

When he saw “a bunch of Bernie Sanders stuff” he said he told the woman, “very politely,” that he could’t tow her car because she was “obviously a socialist” and advised her to “call the government” for a tow.

“Every business dealing in recent history with a socialist minded person I have not gotten paid,” Shupe said. “Every time I deal with these people I get ‘Berned’ with an ‘e’ not a ‘u’.”

I don’t think he did anything wrong; a business owner ought to have the right to refuse service to people if he finds their views offensive. Right, Bruce Springsteen?  Right Michael Moore?

FWIW: Gary Johnson is also a wedding cake fascist. But so are Hillary, Bernie, and Trump so it really doesn’t matter.

The Left Turns On The Pope. (Phrasing. Boom.)

A lot of gheyfolk who formerly loved Pope Francis because he seemed to be socialist and metrosexual have now decided they hate him because he met with Kim Davis (who was the object of last month’s left-wing hatefest) and because, oh yeah, he fired a gay priest from his job at The Vatican. So, now they’ve decided he’s either a homophobic racist tea-bagger, or a victim of the anti-gay mafia or something.

The thing is, though, Monsignor Krzysztof Charamsa wasn’t fired for being gay; he was fired for being in a gay relationship. “What’s the difference?” gay lefties may ask. Actually, as explained by Mollie Hemingway, it’s a pretty big difference that can be summarized thusly:

Gay priests are not allowed to have boyfriends.

Lesbian nuns are not allowed to have girlfriends.

Straight nuns are not allowed to have boyfriends.

Straight priests are not allowed to have girlfriends.

Equality isn’t one-way street, it also means you have to play by the same rules as everybody else.

Protecting Delicate Victorian Feminists from the Trauma of Salary Negotiations

Posted by V the K at 11:27 pm - April 10, 2015.
Filed under: Equality (Real or Faux?)

According to modern Feminist theory, women are emotionally fragile and delicate creatures who must be treated like children and protected from the harsh realities of life. They tend to be overcome with “the vapors” when exposed to strange, new ideas, and must therefore be sent to “safe spaces” — equipped with Play-Doh, and crayons, and teddy bears — to recover when hearing a politically incorrect opinion leaves them faint.

In this spirit, the new female, minority chairhead of Reddit has decided that since women are too fragile to compete in the business world at the level of men… all salary negotiations will be banned going forward.

As Reddit’s interim CEO, Pao said she wants to eliminate salary negotiations from the company’s hiring process.

In her first interview since the lawsuit, Pao told with the Wall Street Journal Monday that the plan would help level the playing field.

“Men negotiate harder than women do and sometimes women get penalized when they do negotiate,” she said. “So as part of our recruiting process we don’t negotiate with candidates. We come up with an offer that we think is fair. If you want more equity, we’ll let you swap a little bit of your cash salary for equity, but we aren’t going to reward people who are better negotiators with more compensation.”

An interesting side effect of this is that it puts all the power on the side of the employer. Instead of negotiating a better deal for one’s skills, the employee is stuck with a one-size-fits-all salary, with only the choice of taking it or leaving it. (A lot of “progressive” policies seem to have the side effect of concentrating power in the hands of authoritarian.)

And here’s something interesting. The Reddit Chairhead filed a sexual discrimination complaint against a previous employer … and lost.

Last Friday, a jury decided that the venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers did not discriminate or retaliate against Pao in a case that debated gender imbalance and working conditions for women in Silicon Valley.

Just putting that out there.


The gender pay gap: a myth?

Like others, I don’t care much about the Oscars. But I understand that Patricia Arquette made a stir on Sunday night, with her speech about “All women deserve equal pay”.

Let’s be clear: Women and men absolutely deserve equal pay, when we’re talking about equal work. That is: work of the same category and experience level, that either a woman or man could do, done with equally good results, under equally good (or bad) conditions.

The point of contention is: Are left-wing feminists really talking about that? Are they correct to claim a large gender gap exists? And are left-wing politicians correct, when they claim to be the answer?

Powerline reminds us of research from 2011 about the gender gap being a myth. And also how, on the surface at least, Hillary and Obama are hypocrites – for example, Hillary has paid her women 72 cents on the dollar (compared to her men). While left-wing hypocrisy is a delightfully inexhaustible subject, the first piece is most interesting for the points it makes.

Basically, research supports the idea that men *on average* tend to choose more dangerous (or less popular) careers; more stressful specializations within the same career; and more uncomfortable and undesirable work locations. And tend (on average) to work longer hours including more nights and weekends, and to take fewer lengthy mid-career breaks. When adjusted for such factors, the gender pay gap disappears – or even turns slightly in favor of women.

If you disagree, please feel free to post your facts/logic in the comments.

UPDATE: Peter Schiff makes a good point, that if he *could* pay a woman less for the same work, women would have a competitive advantage. He “would be an idiot to hire a man” – and would gladly hire nothing but women. He doesn’t, because it just isn’t so. (At least in financial services. Maybe, over in show business, George Clooney’s career will indeed age better than Patricia Arquette’s.)

UPDATE: At the same link, Schiff adds, “in adult entertainment [as opposed to Arquette/Hollywood] women are paid much more…this disparity has nothing to do with discrimination…The porn audience cares about the female stars…So pay rates reflect market forces…I wonder if at the next Adult Video News awards a male winner will demand equal pay during his acceptance speech?”

Modest Proposals for the Advancement of the Womenfolk

Posted by V the K at 7:50 am - November 14, 2014.
Filed under: Equality (Real or Faux?)

Despite fifty or so years of ‘Women’s Liberation,’ apparently women have never had it worse in America. The White House claims that women only make 77 cents for every dollar men make. Feminists claim that 1 out of every 4 women who go to college get raped.  It’s just awful being a woman in the United States. But, fortunately, there are a couple of ways of fixing it.

First, the wage gap.

“Every reputable study suggests that working age women earn less than men mostly due to the choices women make in their careers. The scientists know this, the economists know this – even the White House knows this. And so I humbly present my own proposal for closing the gender wage gap, which I hope will not only solve the problem but also satisfy voices on all sides of the argument. As a society, we must begin telling women what subjects they can major in, what colleges they can attend, and what jobs they can take.”– Ashe Schow in A Modest Proposal For Closing The Gender Wage Gap

Now, that problem of rape and whatall.

I’m beginning to believe that women are just too fragile to handle a college environment. Perhaps they should be kept at home until they marry, or at most sent to single-sex finishing schools.

Gay Marriage and the Secular Inquisition

From the Federalist, gay marriage as a tool for subjugation of the individual to the state.

The theory behind gay marriage, in short, was the theory behind the entire secular left: society and the state are the all-powerful forces on which the life of the individual depends, and the most important political task—indeed, the most important task in life—is getting this irresistible power on your side. Once you gain social and political power, you hold on to it by making your preferred views mandatory, a catechism everyone must affirm, while suppressing all heretical views. In this case, to gain social acceptance of homosexuality, you make the affirmation of gay marriages mandatory while officially suppressing any dissenting religious views.

Exactly so. There is no reason to force ordained ministers to perform gay weddings, no reason to force bakers to provide cakes for gay weddings, no reason to force florists and photographers to participate in gay weddings… except to enforce the idea that individual must bow to whoever wields the power of the state.

If Christians Can Be Forced to Bake Cakes for Gay People…

Can gay pagans be forced to hire Christians?

A graduate from Trinity Western University says that a hiring manager for Canada’s North for Amaruk Wilderness Corp. informed her that her application for an internship at the company was rejected because of her Christian beliefs and education at a Christian university.

In her complaint to the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal, Bethany Paquette provided a series of discriminatory emails from executives at Amaruk.One of the emails was from hiring manager Olaf Amundsen, who told Paquette that she did not meet the minimum requirements to be a guide. He then callously added:

Additionally, considering you were involved with Trinity Western University, I should mention that, unlike Trinity Western University, we embrace diversity, and the right of people to sleep with or marry whoever they want.

Amundsen explained to Paquette that most of “the guys at the management level” in the Norwegian-owned company believe Christianity is to blame for destroying Norse culture, traditions, and its way of life.

Frankly, I think employers should have a right to employ whomever they want and sell to whomever want. But why would anyone want to work for a bunch of douchebags likes that?

Hermione Granger Lectures Mos Eisley Spaceport on Feminism

The actress who played Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies dropped in on the world’s premier wretched hive of scum and villainy… the United Nations… to deliver a lecture on feminism and to pester men to become feminists.

It was the kind of speech that the Hollywood left usually describes as “courageous,” meaning it reinforces the prejudices of the Hollywood left and will benefit positively the career of the person giving it. To the Hollywood Left, courage is Tina Fey putting on her Sarah Palin wig and delivering a speech about how gay marriage combats Global Warming.

The text of the speech contains not a word about clitorectomies, honor killings, or Islamic Law and its requirements that a woman produce four witnesses before accusing a man of rape. It was all about First World problems, which is why an actress who has made millions of dollars can complain about income inequality and hurt feelings.

Because the reality is that if we do nothing it will take 75 years, or for me to be nearly a hundred before women can expect to be paid the same as men for the same work.

I started questioning gender-based assumptions when at eight I was confused at being called “bossy,” because I wanted to direct the plays we would put on for our parents—but the boys were not.
When at 14 I started being sexualized by certain elements of the press.
When at 15 my girlfriends started dropping out of their sports teams because they didn’t want to appear “muscly.”
When at 18 my male friends were unable to express their feelings.

But given the size of that pile of manure, there had to be a pony under it somewhere and here it is.

The more I have spoken about feminism the more I have realized that fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating. If there is one thing I know for certain, it is that this has to stop.

No kidding. as the Feminist Movement is led by women who totally believe stuff like this:

“The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately 10% of the human race.”


Gay Groups Drop Support for ENDA Because It Won’t Oppress Christians

Several big name Gay Rights groups — including the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Lambda Legal, and the National Center for Lesbian Rights — have decided to drop support for Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) — because it includes exemptions for religious organizations.

Several major gay rights groups withdrew support Tuesday for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act that would bolster gay and transgender rights in the workplace, saying they fear that broad religious exemptions included in the current bill might compel private companies to begin citing objections similar to those that prevailed in a U.S. Supreme Court case last week…

If they can’t force church to bow to state, then they’re not interested in ending “workplace discrimination.” (To the extent that it even exists any more, but that’s an aside.)  This tends to validate certain incendiary critics who have argued that the real energy behind the Gay Left (Inc.) isn’t so much the advancement of Teh Gay Rights as it is smashing Christians in the nose at every legal opportunity.

Keeping Up with the Cardassians


Star Trek’s Cardassians were a members of a brutal, authoritarian police-state. The Cardassian character Gul Dukat understood implicitly what many of us have struggled to understand; why the Gay Left isn’t content with winning gay marriage, but also demand that those who oppose gay marriage be forced to participate in gay marriage ceremonies.

Gul Dukat: A true victory is to make your enemy see they were wrong to oppose you in the first place. To force them to acknowledge your greatness.
Weyoun: Then you kill them?
Gul Dukat: …Only if it’s necessary.

[“Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Sacrifice of Angels (#6.6)” (1997)]

I almost pity organizations like the Boy Scouts for naively thinking they could appease the Gay Left with some  compromises; Totalitarians are not interested in compromises. Neither is the Gay Left.

LGBTQ Readying to Force Christians to Bend to Their Power… Again

So, this transgendered person enrolls in a Christian college, and now demands that the Christian college change its ways to accommodate her/him.

 A male-to-female transgender student has filed a discrimination complaint against his Christian university, claiming the school must allow him to live in men’s dormitories regardless of its theological principles.

Hey, if Christians who consider abortions murder of the unborn can be forced to pay for abortions, if Christians opposed to bgay marriage can be forced to participate in gay marriage ceremonies, then Christians can be forced to violate their principles to accommodate the feelings of transgenderoids as well.

Under Obama, the First Amendment has been effectively rewritten: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, unless homosexuals demand otherwise.”

Another Brill Tweet


Even Michelangelo Signorile shows No Self-Awareness

In the comments to V’s post, Even Andrew Sullivan Is Disgusted with the Gay Left, commenter Donny D has kindly pointed us to Signorile’s scoop that proves the Left’s sincerity about rainbows and tolerance:

Dear Andrew Sullivan, ‘Left-Liberal Intolerance’ Did Not Bring Down Mozilla’s CEO…

According to Sullivan, the gay mafia has struck again, destroying [Mozilla ex-CEO Brendan Eich] and bringing him down because he would not conform to its thinking…

But…it wasn’t the Prop 8 contribution, and Eich’s refusal to renounce it, that eventually did Eich in. He was being defended by company executives…Eich only announced he was stepping down after it was revealed late Wednesday that he’d given money to Pat Buchanan’s presidential campaign in 1992, and later to Ron Paul’s campaign…

It all just became too much for Mozilla to bear…It’s about a company based in Northern California that has many progressive employees…

Get it? In Signorile’s world,

  • left-wing progressives *are not* a Mafia that viciously hounds anybody who deviates from their orthodoxy of thought…
  • because left-wing progressives *did not* destroy Eich over his crimethinkful deviation on Prop 8 (a deviation shared by a great many Obama supporters that year, 2008)…
  • rather, left-wing progressives destroyed Eich over his crimethinkful deviations on Ron Paul, and on Pat Buchanan way back in 1992.

Which deviations naturally merit a campaign of personal destruction, making the destruction perfectly understandable within a proper concept of tolerance. (cough)

To be clear, I don’t like what Buchanan stood for in the 1992 campaign, either. But “that was then” and, rather more importantly, I get it that freedom is a 2-way street. “Freedom means freedom for everybody.”

And Signorile’s use of Ron Paul is fascinating. Signorile is saying, in effect, that consistent support for small government and individual liberty (what Paul stands for) is unforgiveable. Boy, I sure am impressed with the Left’s wonderful tolerance for freedom of thought, now.

Even Andrew Sullivan Is Disgusted with the Gay Left

The hounding of Brendan Eich has inspired Andrew Sullivan to direct some disapprobation toward some people who actually deserve it for a  change.

His flaw lies in assuming the progressive left wants a “tolerant and diverse society.” They don’t. Read the responses to his Tweet. Most of them are totally on-board with intolerance and witch-hunts.

The gay left is reveling in their power to ruin anyone whose opinion is not in line with what they consider acceptable. As I said before, they are only going to get more obnoxious.

Nick Adds: Naturally, Mozilla closed comments on their milquetoast post about ‘diversity’ in relation to their decision. (Trackbacks are open, but such a cowardly and pandering move doesn’t deserve the mention, so sorry GP fans, you’ll have to search it out yourself.) How disgusting. I think it was Greg Gutfeld who said (something along the lines of): Diversity is great until you point out any way in which people are different.

Andrew (who I once respected immensely) gets a rare broken-clock nail-on-the-head here. As someone who’s perplexed by the Gay Kommunity’s fascination with marriage (why anybody would actively invite the government to involve itself in his personal relationships is beyond me and the topic of a million other posts I’ve written or at least considered writing, but beside the point…), I find their suppressionist approach is stomach-wrenching in its hypocrisy considering the alleged and self-declared oppression of this subset of society.

The LGBTQ Thought Police claim another victory: Mozilla CEO forced out.


Progressive Leftist Mozilla Employees Accuse CEO of Thoughtcrime; Demand Resignation

Mozilla CEO Brandon Eich has a political opinion that employees disagree with. Therefore, he must be punished.

Some employees at Mozilla, the non-profit organization behind the Firefox browser, are calling on new CEO Brendan Eich to resign.

Mozilla workers are upset with Eich because he supported Proposition 8 and donated to the politicians who backed it.

Prop 8 was a Californian ballot-proposition banning same-sex marriage. It was officially rejected in February 2012.

Those who have a different opinion than the Progressive Left must be punished… because tolerance.

More leftists run amok

After V’s posts on the progressive, feminist lesbian who stands with the religion that actually oppresses women, and the transsexual who feels that her sex change operation should get her off the hook for murder, I thought I’d throw in a couple more examples.

1) In Michigan, a teachers’ union contract openly discriminates against men, whites, and Christians. From the Ferndale school district’s clause about promotions:

Special consideration shall be given to women and/or minority defined as: Native American, Asian American, Latino, African American and those of the non-Christian faith.

I could note the poor construction, and the apparent ignorance of the fact that many Latinos are part of what progressives would call “white privilege”. But what’s far more disturbing is that teachers – or, a school district – could be so disrespectful of basic American legal, civic and moral principles.

2) There’s more on that bossy left-wing professor who assaulted a pro-life, 16 year old girl last week in Santa Barbara. From the police report:

In essence, Miller-Young told me that she felt “triggered” by the images on the posters…

Miller-Young said that she and others began demanding that the images be taken down. Miller-Young said that the demonstrators refused. At which point, Miller-Young said that she “just grabbed it [the sign] from this girl’s hands.” Asked if there had been a struggle, Miller-Young stated, “I’m stronger so I was able to take the poster.”…

Miller-Young went on to say that because the poster was upsetting…she felt that the [pro-life] activists did not have the right to be there…

I told Miller-Young that I appreciated the fact that she felt traumatized by the [pro-life] imagery but that her response constituted a violation of law…

Miller-Young replied that [the pro-lifers] coming to campus and showing “graphic imagery” [in common areas] was insensitive to the community…

Miller-Young also suggested that the group had violated her rights. I asked Miller-Young what right the group had violated. Miller-Young responded, “My personal right to go to work and not be in harm.”

Miller-Young elaborated that one of the reasons she had felt so alarmed by this imagery is because she is about to have the test for Down Syndrome. Miller-Young said. “I work here, why do they get to intervene in that?”

I explained to Miller-Young that vandalism, battery and robbery had occurred…

Get it? Mireille Miller-Young wants to get off the hook for alleged acts of vandalism, battery and robbery because *her feelers were hurt*.

Miller-Young could potentially have a Down Syndrome baby that she might then want to abort, and how dare anyone take (or publicize) any stance that might make her feel guilt over that? Telling Miller-Young your truth (remember when lefties used to love the idea of everyone ‘telling their truth’?) is now “harm” to her that justifies her use of physical violence.

This looks to me like a classic case of a woman who might have a personality disorder, seeking to control/abuse other people. God bless the sane policeman!

Now for some better items. The Delaware Supreme Court has upheld self-protection rights for residents of public housing. And they were unanimous. Remember, the criminal residents already had guns, so this ruling is a help to the law-abiding residents.

And in California, three Asian-American State senators thankfully blocked an effort to bring back racial discrimination in college admissions, after California voters had rejected it in 1996.
