Feminists Hate it When Men Are Happy

Feminists: We are strong, empowered, and capable of doing anything a man can do.
Also Feminists: We are too emotionally fragile to handle jokes about lingerie and demand that men be punished for telling them in our presence.

She said she offered to press the floor buttons for people in the elevator, whom she described as mostly conference attendees and all, except one other woman, white middle-aged men. Instead of saying a floor, Lebow smiled and asked for the women’s lingerie department “and all his buddies laughed,” Sharoni wrote in a complaint, the details of which he disputed, to the association later that day.

“After they walked out, the woman standing next to me turned to me and said, ‘I wonder if we should have told them that it is no longer acceptable to make these jokes!” she said in her complaint.

Sharoni, who wrote in her complaint that she has experienced sexual harassment in academe in the past and was shaken by the incident, said it took her a while to figure out that Lebow thought it was funny “to make a reference to men shopping for lingerie while attending an academic conference. I am still trying to come to terms with the fact that we froze and didn’t confront him,” she wrote.

Seriously, a dude making a joke in an elevator causes an academic controversy. He apologized, of course, but the offended feminist has deemed his apology insufficient. Such is the rotted state of academia in this country.

“For decades, women and other marginalized groups in the academy had to put up with white men who decided what counts as a violation and what is ‘frivolous,’” she wrote in an email. “As someone who has dedicated her life to confronting sexism (and other forms of discrimination and oppression) in academic spaces, I cannot and will not remain silent when misogyny is at play.”

Another hyperprivileged white woman appropriating the historical struggles of marginalized groups to feed her own grievances.

As bad or even worse are the male cuck academics rushing to condemn the teller of the bad joke to ingratiate themselves to their feminist overseers.

Alleged news network CNN tweeted this this weekend.

Patriarchy is a social system that defines men as being inherently violent, dominant and controlling while rewarding them with power for being that way.

How about this: “Patriarchy, a term made up by left-wing incompetents to explain away their failures in life. See also racism, white supremacy, homophobia/”

More Stupid

I am sort of missing the connection between the Cookie Monster and knife crime. Or is it just leftist instinct to infantilize everything?

Really, would you ever see anything like this in a society run by reasoning adults, except as satire?

And only cowards carry screwdrivers? WTAF.

Sign of the Times

Liberals made BK take down a sign warning people that they would be banned for having drug overdoses in their restaurant. The bleeding hearts felt the sign wounded the self-esteem of drug addicts.

BK also offered up a groveling apology for hurting the feelings of drug addicts.

“The actions of this Team Member were an isolated incident and do not reflect the Burger King brand values or the values of the Franchisee, who independently owns and operates this restaurant,” a Burger King spokesperson said. “The Franchisee is investigating this incident thoroughly and will take the actions they believe are appropriate.”

Have you ever noticed that liberals are never on the side of normal people?

 

Did I Miss Anything?

So, that thing gay people watch was on last night. What’s it called? The Osrics, or something? I’ve never watched an Osric broadcast in my entire life, and I’m sure not about to start now.

So, tell me… were there a lot of smug people in expensive outlets congratulating each other over how awesome they all were? Were there overtly political speeches? Did the smug overdressed people hoot for the political speeches?  Was there hypocritical grandstanding about sexual harassment? Were awards given to pretentious, mediocre films that played to the left-wing sensibilities of Hollywood deciders?

You don’t need to answer. The scientific instrument has not yet been made with sufficient granularity to assess my indifference.

(So why are you writing about it? Because shut up, that’s why.)

A Country Drowning in Stupid

Posted by V the K at 8:45 am - February 23, 2018.

Some high school students and Louisiana saw another student draw a square root symbol as part of a math problem. (Below). Thinking it resembled a gun, they flew into a panic and called police. Police went to the math student’s home and searched it. I am not making this up.

My actual favorite part of this story is how the reporter felt it necessary to explain, “the symbol, which represents a number that when multiplied by itself equals another number.”

You’ll be relieved to know the police found nothing more threatening than algebra homework. The student may still face disciplinary action at the school though. Update: The school is moving to expel the student who drew the square root symbol.

Oh, and some idiots in the Seattle area freaked out and called the media to report that a neighbor was flying a Confederate flag. It was the flag of Norway. I only wish I were making that up.

Still Not Woke Enough

Sorry Movie That No One Is Allowed Not to Like, you’re still not woke enough.

Given the amount of screen time given to the squad of warrior women in Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther, one of the biggest questions about the film has been whether it would at all incorporate any elements of Ayo’s (Florence Kasumba) sexuality, or even the idea that queer women were a part of the Dora Milaje.

Right, how dare you not have a lesbian love story in your social justice comic book action movie?

Question, should white people even be permitted to see this movie?  Apparently, it is a legitimate concern in the Woke Community.

There Are Very Stupid People in California with Too Much Money

Our genius (Party of Science) social betters are paying $100+ per gallon to drink dirty unfiltered water, I am not making this up.

In San Francisco, “unfiltered, untreated, unsterilized spring water” is selling for as much as $60.99 for a 2.5 gallon jug. Startups dedicated to untreated water are popping up. People — including startup Juicero’s cofounder Doug Evans — are gathering gallons of untreated water from natural springs to bring to Burning Man.

They are doing this because an idiot ersatz guru told them that water containing e. coli was healthier for them because it contained life. Again, I am not making this up.

The founder of Live Water, Mukhande Singh, started selling spring water from Opal Springs in Culver, Ore., three years ago, but it was a small local operation until this year. Marketing materials show Mr. Singh (né Christopher Sanborn) sitting naked and cross-legged on a hot spring, his long brown hair flowing over his chest… [F]or Mr. Singh, the goal is not pristine water, per se. “You’re going to get 99 percent of the bad stuff out,” he said. “But now you have dead water.”

He said “real water” should expire after a few months. His does. “It stays most fresh within one lunar cycle of delivery,” he said. “If it sits around too long, it’ll turn green. People don’t even realize that because all their water’s dead, so they never see it turn green.”

I really hope Darwinian Evolution is paying attention to this.

Progressives and Crime

Here is an interesting and informative article about social justice dogma and the criminal justice system. It is long on reason and facts, and short on appeals to emotion. Here is a TL:DR summary.

  1. Progressive Left policies on crime (such as those embraced by Black Lives Matter and most all Democrats) are based on a social justice hypothesis that crime is a result of income disparity and racism.
  2. There is no real-world evidence to support this hypothesis; it is based entirely on social justice dogma.
  3. There is ample real-world evidence the criminals are defined by a predatory pathology. That they are driven by a desire to self-gratify (often through violence) and have no regard for their victims. These traits are very often inter-generational.
  4. The left’s misguided insistence on treating criminal behavior as an issue of racism and social inequality has led to billions of dollars being squandered, and countless lives destroyed through the violence of criminals who should have been locked up (or put down) but weren’t because progressives believe that putting criminals in jail is mean and unfair.

 

They’re coming for the smart people

I knew this day would come. In trying to make successful people feel guilty, Social Justice Warriors are ready to take us to full-on _Idiocracy_ or _Harrison Bergeron_. The SJW columnist Dan Williams says:

There are many kinds of privilege besides white privilege: cognitive privilege, for example. We now know that intelligence is not something we have significant control over but is something we are born with… below a certain threshold of intelligence, there are fewer and fewer opportunities… Thus, the accident of having been born smart enough to be able to be successful is a great benefit that you did absolutely nothing to earn. Consequently, you have nothing to be proud of for being smart.

His claims are contrary to science. There are plenty of things you can do, to enhance your intelligence or to damage it. For example, some studies show that frequent marijuana use can permanently damage your memory, concentration, and overall IQ. Whereas those things can be preserved or enhanced by healthy lifestyle, or some forms of education or problem-solving. So yes, your intelligence is something you “have significant control over”, long-term.

Williams’ claims are also contrary to my life experience. Throughout my life, I have consciously worked long and hard at becoming smarter and doing better things than I would have otherwise. It was no accident. It used to be called “self-improvement”.

But I suppose that, if you’re a modern-day lazy pot-smoking type of “smart” person – someone who was born talented and has indeed drifted along, doing little or nothing to forge your unique self, and falling into a six-figure salary all the same – then Williams’ comments might make sense to you. You would be too ignorant to know better. And you would need the SJW Religion for its cheap grace, or as a way to live with yourself.

From the comments: Heliotrope highlights another significant quote from Williams’ piece:

Any of us could have been born the unluckiest person on the planet, which, by definition, picks out precisely one person. But we all have the privilege of not being that person. We are all privileged by comparison.

This highlights the religious aspect of SJW-ism.

  • “Privilege” is the new Original Sin, the guilt-from-birth that no one escapes (except Williams’ hypothetical “unluckiest person born”, maybe).
  • PC “Social Consciousness” is the new Redemption (the cheap grace that I mentioned).
  • Revolution would be the (longed-for) Apocalypse or Last Judgment.
  • and Social Justice, the (unattainable) New Jerusalem or Kingdom of Heaven.

Mind-Boggling Ignorance From Elite Journalist Joy Reid

Schadenfreude

The University of Missouri … which two years ago knuckled under to race-crazed social justice wankers and spoiled brat trustafarians … has experienced a steep drop in admissions.

Before the protests, the university, fondly known as Mizzou, was experiencing steady growth and building new dormitories. Now, with budget cuts due to lost tuition and a decline in state funding, the university is temporarily closing seven dormitories and cutting more than 400 positions, including those of some nontenured faculty members.

The protests at Mizzou and the resignation of the college president were widely celebrated as a success at the time, but things haven’t worked out well for the school which is now renting out empty dorm rooms for events like the upcoming solar eclipse. It turns out students aren’t eager to attend a school best known for, as the Times puts it, “a hair-trigger protest culture lacking any adult control.”

Actually, they are still celebrated as a success because the destruction of an institution is a demonstration of power and power is what the left is really all about.

One would think that if a college/university really wanted to stand out in the market today, they would brand themselves as a school of academic rigor and tolerance for all viewpoints but not for disruptive, social justice nonsense. Such a school would appeal to students and parents who wanted a good return on their investment. It’s interesting that no large college or university is going in this direction; but instead they are collectively sinking into the mire of social justice nonsense.

Speaking of things destroyed by left-wing jackassery, the NFL is losing advertisers. It’s not just Colin Kaeparnik (last seen traveling to Ghana to bash the white racist American culture that made him a multimillionaire). Let’s not forget how ESPN became a sports-themed version of MSDNC over the last couple of years. They’re not doing so well either.

Why leftie men often look like cucks

I missed this last week, but here it is now. Study: Physically Weak Men More Likely To Be Socialists.

An academic study from researchers at Brunel University London assessed 171 men, looking at their height, weight, overall physical strength and bicep circumference, along with their views on redistribution of wealth and income inequality. The study, published in the Evolution and Human Behavior journal, ​found that weaker men were more likely to favor socialist policies than stronger men.

Brunel University’s Michael Price believes this may be a product of evolutionary psychology. “This is about our Stone Age brains, in a modern society,” said Dr. Price. “Our minds evolved in environments where strength was a big determinant of success. If you find yourself in a body not threatened by other males, if you feel you can win competitions for status, then maybe you start thinking inequality is pretty good.”

So, physical “haves” feel less threatened and enjoy inequality. In other words, they’re dumb jock bullies. That’s one interpretation. But it’s undermined by Brunel’s own evidence:

“When Dr Price factored in time spent in the gym some, but not all, of the link disappeared,” notes The Times, suggesting there may be something to men with capitalistic views hitting the gym.

[ILC stares at his shoelaces, wonders if he should cough] That strikes me as more truthful.

  • Those who go to the gym, tend to be stronger.
  • And they tend to understand the importance of health and strength in daily life: not only in appearing impressive to people, but in actually having more energy, being able to move more easily, having a reliable daily feeling of accomplishment and positive discipline, etc.
  • And they tend to understand accountability for your own results. (Physical training teaches nothing, if not that.)
  • From there, and at the risk of over-generalizing, they often drift into common-sense libertarian-conservative views, emphasizing personal responsibility.
  • The process can also work in reverse: if you believe in personal responsibility, you may find yourself going “Hey, why don’t I hit the gym / get strong?”

At least that’s been my experience. I know some leftie gym buffs – again, you can’t over-generalize – but I live in a super-lefty area. (And the few who like MSNBC for real are always either women or weak, older men.) The percentage rate of being libertarian-conservative seems, to me, a bit higher among gym buffs than the general population. And the link is: philosophy of personal responsibility.

If you’d like to learn about strength training, a good place to start is www.startingstrength.com. (No affiliation.) They emphasize perfecting your “form” or technique to prevent injury. And that strength training is something for all people, of all ages. The leader, Mark Rippetoe, is sort of a gruff, dogmatic, ex-power-lifter – and I *think* he’s libertarian-minded, or at least anti-Hillary.

That Awkward Moment When Saudi Arabia Is More Pro-American Than California

Posted by V the K at 2:16 pm - May 22, 2017.
Filed under: Liberal Mediocrity Sucks

Don’t think I’m going soft on the Saudis. I’ve just not seen a recent image from California where there were this many American flags and none of them were on fire.

But let’s not forget that we are dealing with a corrupt, degenerate, autocratic state where there is no free speech, where universities are run by fanatics who indoctrinate students with radical ideology; where street thugs aligned with the ruling party freely commit acts of violence against opposing views, and whose ruling elite routinely violates the basic rights of Christians and other minorities. Also, Saudi Arabia is pretty bad too.

Reminder: Government health care is sub-DMV health care

Talk to a leftie and you will often hear how wonderful Canadian health care is. “Why can’t we be like them?” Crowder did an expose of Canadian health care in 2009 that is still relevant:

YouTube Preview Image

Here’s the summary. Canadians pay huge taxes for “free”, “universal” health care. It makes people wait, and wait, and wait. Many people either give up altogether (and their condition gets worse), or go to a private clinic.

That’s how they reduce patients to a manageable number. Economics 101 teaches us that all goods must be rationed by one means or another, and “waiting” for people to quit the queue is how they ration Canada’s public health care.

From Crowder’s anecdotes it seems that Canadians, if they don’t quit, will wait usually about four times as long as Americans. For example, last year I went to an emergency room on a Sunday afternoon. It took 20 minutes to get the triage nurse’s attention, then another hour to see a doctor. In Crowder’s video, they visit a Canadian emergency room on a Sunday. It takes them about an hour and a half to see the triage nurse, and then 5+ hours to see a doctor (except they quit at the 4-hour mark).

Likewise, an acquaintance of mine recently needed a cancer surgery. He got it in weeks; in Canada it would have taken months. This is what Bernie and Hillary want to bring us to.

Women Are Fragile Creatures That Must Be Sheltered from Life say Feminists

A gang of six professors at Wellesley College (cough “Asylum” cough) (Annual cost of attendance: $66,966) calling themselves “the Commission for Ethnicity, Race, and Equity (CERE)” have authored a policy that would ban speakers from the college if their views are so controversial (i.e. conservative, libertarian, or anti-socialist) that snowflakes might be offended by them.

The nut of their argument is that the presence of speakers presenting opinions that social justice wankers disagree with traumatizes the minority groups privileged white people always claim to be concerned about — womyn, people without pale skin, and of course the LGBTQs — who then must (because they can’t just let these things go) — MUST invest valuable time and energy in making signs, smashing windows, putting together giant vagina costumes, making tearful YouTube videos and suchlike.

I am not making this up.

There is no doubt that the speakers in question impose on the liberty of students, staff, and faculty at Wellesley. We are especially concerned with the impact of speakers’ presentations on Wellesley students, who often feel the injury most acutely and invest time and energy in rebutting the speakers’ arguments. Students object in order to affirm their humanity.

The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations

The state of New York has decided it’s OK for schoolteachers to be functionally illiterate, as long as they meet diversity quotas.

I am not making this up.

More black and Hispanic teachers were failing the “Academic Literacy Skills Test” than white teachers. Because diversity of staff is more important than the quality of instructional staff, the state decided that passing the test will no longer be a requirement to teach in New York schools.

BTW, isn’t there additional bigotry in the idea that while white kids can learn from teachers of any race, black kids can only learn from black teachers, and Hispanics from Hispanic teachers? Or is it just me.
