"Pre-order my new book HOW TO BE LESS STUPID ABOUT RACE"

Farnsworth M Muldoon

The author of the above, Harvard-educated sociology professor...

More accurately, a Harvard attended or indoctrinated, there is zero evidence of education.

As I mentioned the other day, a doctorate in Angry and/or Useless studies and advancement of human knowledge are antipodal.

David

To watch such minds in action is a wondrous thing.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Pre-order my new book...

I think that collectively we should write a couple of these books - it is not as if there isn't enough material we can crib from - then create a fictional Angry (Insert Race Here) Guy™ as author, flog the book to the Woke™ dupes, and split the profits.

I don't think professors of hate studies should be allowed out of their parents basements or access to media

Congratulations, black men, and welcome to "privilege."

David

As noted previously, this is a feature of Dr Fleming’s chosen environment, in which she, and those like her, now flourish and multiply. Most of us have said dumb things at one time or another and have possibly been challenged by our peers as a result. But the Clown Quarter is where very dumb things, at least of certain kind, aren’t challenged at all and are actively affirmed as markers of status and in-group piety. There’s little, if any, mechanism for correction.

I said recently on my blog that "white feminists are quite mistaken if they think that they’re on the top of the victimhood tree. Once the ‘victims’ are in charge, white women will quickly find they’re classed as oppressors, second only to white men in culpability".

It seems I must now add the following: "black men are quite mistaken if they think that they’re on the top of the victimhood tree. Once the ‘victims’ are in charge, black men will quickly find they’re classed as oppressors, third only to white men and white women in culpability".

(Maybe Asian men will come higher in the oppressor list than black men, but black men will still be pretty high up. As will all men.)

David

Given her relatively pale complexion, which presumably denotes “privilege” of some kind, perhaps Dr Fleming should also be prohibited from speaking, on any subject, by women whose skin is blacker than her own.

Hey, I’m just trying to figure out how this thing works.

Eagle

Is she black?

However does one determine racial purity in this day and age?

I confess I do not know....

Eagle

That twitter thread... except for a few dank memes, it quickly devolved to intersectional infighting.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Asian as in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, etc, yes, Asian as in Mideastern/Mohammedan, no.

Hector Drummond, Vile Novelist

Asian as in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, etc. You know, those people who oppress others by making their own kids do their homework.

JuliaM

Her bio says she's a 'goal attainer'. Well, I suppose she has attained one, after a fashion.

For those interested in how these things are scored.

Wouldn't surprise me to learn that some charity is trying to protect her from poachers:

What would be the minimum passing grade? Is the exam multiple choice or essay? Open book?

David

it quickly devolved to intersectional infighting.

Where else could it possibly go?

Killer Marmot

Like a snake eating it's own tale, the number of people who are deemed more oppressed than oppressor is getting ever smaller. Eventually it will boil down to a single over-weight girl in Rwanda with a speech impediment. The rest of us will be basking in our unearned privilege.

Hopp Singg

She could have stopped after the first three words.

Spiny Norman

Eagle,

That twitter thread... except for a few dank memes, it quickly devolved to intersectional infighting.

Damn, that thread is as absurd as the political slap fight I just left at 4Chan /b/. Hell, she should take her smug, silly assertion over there and try to defend it.

I'm almost feeling mean enough to post a link to her Twitter for them them to go there and chew on it. Almost.

Spiny Norman

That thread... What do you call an "internet white knight" trying his damnedest to save a black damsel in distress?

Spiny Norman

Oh, okay, one more bit of pretentious stupidity:

When Black women and gays speak we speak for everybody while Black men speak about themselves.

Alrighty then.

Hopp Singg

What do you call an "internet white knight" trying his damnedest to save a black damsel in distress?

Sir Rendered?

Unless he's only white knighting to get into her pants.

Then he's Sir Loins.

How do you keep finding these lunatics?

David

How do you keep finding these lunatics?

They often gravitate to influencing other people’s children. Which is a comfort, obviously.

And so Dr Fleming, our esteemed educator, boasts, “I’m here for freedom for all people from all systems of domination,” while proudly championing the looting and vandalism of stores owned by random white people whenever black criminals do it. And if you object to the violation and destruction of innocent people’s livelihoods, in a display of domination and the lowest human greed, then she’ll call you a “white supremacist” and feel terribly clever about it. Because the looters’ behaviour is somehow all your fault.

And this is the kind of lesson she feels your children should be taught.

An own goal, I think.

Ted S., Catskill Mtns., NY, USA

“I’m here for freedom for all people from all systems of domination,”

Except for freedom from the system that tries to hound people out of jobs for bogus things like "microaggressions" and "cultural appropriation".

That was hilarious. Did it really come from the BBC?

Hopp Singg

Then he's Sir Loins.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

"I'll protect you, fair maiden!"

"Sorry, neither."

Sir Mangina?

What do you call an "internet white knight" trying his damnedest to save a black damsel in distress?

By “trying his damnedest” is he doing the same thing over and over yet at the same time thinking he’s not being obvious?

Sir Repetitious?

Anthony

And now my giveafuck-o-meter is smoking and the needle snapped.

You owe me repatriations.

Anthony

I can answer that myself - no repatriations, credit note only.

We need to get HSE involved in this shoddy establishment.

Darleen

Jeff,

I'm sure someone at the BBC is in vapor lock between "That Tracey brings us so many ratings" and "We can't have THIS!"

Darleen

BTW I'm leaning to "Fuck off, Jamie" to replace "Lighten up, Francis" in my phrase book.

It’s strange just how often this “intersectionality” business looks an awful lot like a caste system, a hierarchy,

That.

David

That.

And as Ms Fabello inadvertently illustrates in the link above, the rules of the New Progressive Pecking Order include denouncing those who dare to offer factual correction as “straight, white cis dudes,” and therefore wicked and inferior by definition, even when the people in question are actually women.

[ Added: ]

It’s remarkable, the extent to which “intersectional” posturing is just an excuse to tell entire demographics that they aren’t ever allowed to question any of your vanities, or dishonesties, or glaring logical errors.

Ray

I don't think black men...

If I say "Shuddup, bitch, and fetch me a beer." am I culturally appropriating?

Valerie

That was hilarious. Did it really come from the BBC?

It couldn't be more BBC. It's as BBC as Blue Peter presenters telling the kiddies to be careful with the scissors. Be careful, kiddies, that you don't cut yourselves on the sharp edge of your own pristine virtue, but the real danger to watch out for is that you and/or most of your friends will be Thatcherites by the age of 30.

PiperPaul

“intersectional” posturing is just an excuse...

It's as if 5-year-olds were given free publicity and the ability to hire lawyers and influence politicians.

I sneeze in threes

OT but how can I not resist?

The intersectionality of Harvard and Sociology strikes again.

re: Oh, my...

“This is because we ask for specific measurements of length and girth and to ensure data validity and uniform measurement we must ensure all participants are correctly using the bone press method.”

The bone press method. Yes. Of course. #IFLScience.

David

the bone press method

If anyone feels a need to Snapchat their genitals to Professor Walker, please use the gents. Not the bar.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

The bone press method.

The study is open to all types of “men,” including “[Assigned Male At Birth], [Assigned Female At Birth], Post-Phallo, Intersex, Genderqueer, etc.”

I hate to break it to Miss Walker, but as she is a sociologist she probably may not know this, but one either has a johnson, or doesn't, regardless of what one calls oneself, even if one counts surgically contrived fauxphalli.

However as I am not a sociologist I am not at all sure whether "post-phallo" means post phalloplasty, or post removal. Of course the latter would seem a moot point to a mere non-sociologist, which is probably why she is counting them.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

You shouldn't promise people who are in a fragile state of mind, in their mid-40s...

Right-o. Mid-40s, divorced, three sprogs, wants a sugar daddy with multiple houses. Generally speaking, sugar daddies with multiple houses are usually looking for a newer model with less baggage, so I suspect the real fault may be in her marketing.

Hopp Singg

She divorced her husband and now she's suing her matchmaking service. Yes, I could see mega-successful men assessing her background and saying, "no future problems with this one, that's for sure."

Right-o. Mid-40s, divorced, three sprogs, wants a sugar daddy with multiple houses.

I know that if I ever make it big, the first thing I’m going to do is buy a rusted out old Buick.

"HOW TO BE LESS STUPID ABOUT RACE"

That one just broke my irony meter. It's over there crying in the corner. It says, "That's it, I quit, I'm done. Take me home."

We need more of this, all of the loonies at each other’s throats. Never interrupt your enemy when they are making a mistake.

In don't think PhDs should be able to say anything outside of their extremely narrow specialties.
