Pogonip

Well, if it’s English they’re talking about, the teacher’s right. English has 3 genders. Spanish has two. I think Japanese also has 3, but maybe not. It’s been a long time since I conversed in Japanese.

Whether you are in England, Spain, Japan, rockin’ out in Mongolia, or in the Fiji Islands for that matter, there are only 2 sexes, though.

Moron (sort of) here as well but after a post on the gun thread last night...sheesh. Content good, I always read that. The comment section annoying. Not so much.

True, the whole thing is made more ridiculous because they accepted the other Parkland kid Hogg who never met a camera or microphone he didn't like, but who got rejected by cow colleges to which he applied because of his SATs which were slightly above those of a rock.

Hogg, however, is politically reliable and not subject to ungood wrongthink.

“Jos Charles rearranges the alphabet to survive its ferocity against their body.”

feeld is a rare find that will be felt and studied for a long while. To reimagine a language of one’s age is perhaps poetry’s essential task ... As Chaucerian English into the digital twenty-first century, feeld is in elite company, and is arguably unheralded in its lyric inventiveness. It’s an archeology of the present (‘wee wer so nashional’) and an anagram of the genetic code that is the body (‘lorde i am 1 / lorde i am 2 / lorde i am infinate’).

It's somewhat depressing to see once again that what the editors and prize givers mostly recognise nowadays is either a) an unrecognisable post-post-post-modernist collage of verbal matter b) identity politics by other means. Depressing - and infuriating, because I know that what audiences and readers mostly go for is wholly different.

"Oberlin administrators sought to negotiate special treatment for shoplifting students"

https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/333592/

$33 million doesn't sound enough.

David

$33 million doesn’t sound enough.

You have to marvel at Oberlin’s ingrained moral squalor - the ripened fruit of all that leftist posturing. Such that students were encouraged by staff to side with shoplifters - people stealing for fun, as entertainment - and to actively destroy the livelihood of a baker who would rather not be preyed upon by thieves. The expectation of lawfulness, of common civility, being deemed grounds for lies, harassment and ruin. An endeavour that Oberlin’s administrators were happy to enable.

Reducing the place to rubble and then building something useful, like a car park or a golf course, doesn’t seem out of the question.

Pogonip

How about a large bakery?

Tom
Hogg, however, is politically reliable and not subject to ungood wrongthink.

And that's exactly why they accepted him. He's the perfect unsmiling face of future fascism.

Reducing the place to rubble and then building something useful...

It's not the buildings that are the problem.

Legal Insurrection has a Thread on the whole sorry enraging episode.

David

Legal Insurrection has a thread on the whole sorry enraging episode.

And remember, Oberlin is the Clown Quarter writ large. It’s a leftist fiefdom, where leftist psychology and woke psychodramas are normative, institutional. And behold the results.

Jonathan

And behold the results.

The problem is that the instigators and organisers of this nonsense never seem to pay a price. The massive damages imposed will not impact them at all; you can guarantee that if Oberlin has to make cut backs it won't be the 'Grievance Studies' departments that feel the pinch.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Your comedy, does not conform to the five year plan, товарищ.

“Too often the writing room is not sensitively run. It can be aggressive and slightly bullying,” Schuster told Diverse Festival* on Monday, according to the BBC, where she featured in a panel discussion titled “why employing more women writers in comedy matters”.

"Sensitive comedy" - The Amazing Kriswell predicts a slump in ITVs ratings.

*(File under "Things You Can't Make Up")

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Harvard material for sure.

The result of Common Core biology curriculum.

We've been a little low on Art lately.

David

Right, I’m off to attend a funeral. On the upside, I look pretty good in this suit.

Play nicely. Or ponder life’s existential predicament, whichever.

Tom

Your comedy, does not conform to the five year plan, товарищ.

ITV’s head of comedy has said she will no longer commission any show with an all-male writing team, or one that has just a “token woman”.

Hahahahaha! Sorry, is that not a joke?

Saskia Schuster took action after an audit of her shows revealed “an awful lot” of all-male teams and a “significant lack” of women in scripted commissions. She said for every five scripts sent to her by a man, she would receive just one by a woman.

Yeah, but which ones are the funniest? When you're paying for a product that should make people laugh I imagine that would be the defining criterium, is it funny? The genitals of the degenerate(s)* who wrote it shouldn't even enter into the equation.

*They're comedians, you know they've got to be slightly 'off' or they'd be doing something else with their lives.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Triggered by history.

He is literally shaking over a Civil War Reenactment...

Kyle said he had been to the event before with former board member and fellow African American Audrey Nixon and, ‘Some of the things I experienced I cannot talk about here,’ while referencing the sight of Confederate battle flags.

... oh noes, not the sight of a flag - in Illinois, at the site of a POW camp for Confederates.

‘Our ancestors told us what really happened. Did you know that black soldiers were put on the front line in the North and Southern front lines so they would be killed first?’ he asked fellow board members.

So what you are saying is that the black soldiers were shooting each other ? Those who do not study history are doomed to be idiots.

https://leiterreports.typepad.com/blog/2019/06/philosophical-discussion-of-trans-identity-a-guide-for-the-perplexed.html

Couple of quotes:

"Hopefully you agree that one should not question whether people can identify their own genders. It is just an indisputable fact after all. And hopefully you are also thinking that it is wrong to question how we came to KNOW that people can identify their own genders."

"For that matter, please do not informally question the source of our knowledge that people can identify their own genders...It is a fact that people can identify their own genders, and it is not to be interrogated, or discussed, and the source of such knowledge is not to be queried, challenged, or in any way shape or form investigated or discussed as an act of pedagogy or as a matter of curiosity amongst philosophical peers."

That Schumer thing is actually an old Bob Monkhouse joke. The difference between now and then is that Monkhouse told it against himself.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Meanwhile, in The Great White North, first we find that there is a surge in racism and white supremacy among (wait for it)... Chinese Canadians.

Next, we have a carefully reasoned debate about etymology.

Wypipo, amirite ?

Sam

Does anyone even have negative prejudices against Eskimos? If anything Native American's are seen as badasses in Western lore, with Eskimos just seen as those poor cold bastards who live in ice huts. Maybe someone from America's Hat can chime in with the many (tens?) of Eskimo racial jokes so I can properly oppress them.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

...Eskimo racial jokes so I can properly oppress them.

Well, I am far from America's Hat, but here are the only two I know:

1) Outside a church in Nome I saw an Eskimo wearing a wedding dress crying, I asked her what was the trouble was, she said the groom got cold feet.

2) An Eskimo took his snowmobile to a mechanic because it wasn't running right and leaking oil. The mechanic said, "Looks like you blew a seal", Eskimo says, "Leave my personal life out of it, can you fix the damn snowmobile ?"

jabrwok

"Looks like you blew a seal"

I've heard a fishy variant on that one:-D.

Comissar Tinymouth, as I took to calling him.

It’s easy enough for photographers, videographers, and editors to select images that will paint a subject in either a positive or a negative light, as suits the narrative they wish to paint.

It says something about Hogg that, even with a fawning press, he has still come off as someone who should not be put in charge of so much as a pinewood derby.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

...so much as a pinewood derby.

I initially read that as pinworm, which is also apt, but, come to think of it, probably even more appropriate.

Daniel Ream

Does anyone even have negative prejudices against Eskimos?

Canadians generally don't bother to distinguish between bands. People inclined to believe natives are lazy drunks are likely to assume Inuit are also lazy drunks.

Realistically, virtually all of Canada's Innu are located in the extreme north. The number of Canadians who have ever interacted with a full-blood Inuit is probably so small as to be irrelevant.

Too true, between the street cleaner and the pizza guy plutocrat oppressing the masses, after divvying the loot redistributing the fruits of the worker's labor, the 20 or so of them must have gotten off with at least a pound each. It will be interesting to see how they plan to redistribute the moped among themselves, though.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

In the pages of that learned journal "Psychology Today", we learn that not being willing to date "trans" people is likely ruining their health, it is literally genocide, I tell you.

...our relationships play an important role in our overall mental and physical well-being and our relationships are a better predictor of how long we'll live than smoking or obesity! But, if very few people are willing to date trans people, what does this mean for their health and well-being? If trans and non-binary people lack access to one of the most stable sources of social support, this could explain some of the existing health disparities within trans communities.

You will be surprised to find that this stunning and brave research found that cis-men and lesbians were least interested in stepping out with women-with-johnsons, transmisogynist bigots that they are.

Meanwhile, in the leftist ouroboros, we find that their cultural icon, famed fellow traveler Woody Guthrie is slated to become an unperson.

"These lyrics shake me up like a soda can every time I hear them. As an activist, folk musician, and songwriter (in Lula Wiles), and recent label-mate of Woody Guthrie on Smithsonian Folkways Recordings," she says, "my social circles tend to worship Guthrie as the father of all musical protest. But as a Native person, I believe 'This Land Is Your Land' falls flat."

Shaken like a soda can.

Guthrie, she says, can almost be forgiven. After all, he was raised in a less woke era and inculcated in an American culture that he may have resented, but which brainwashed him with certain values, anyway, like imperialism and, yes, white supremacy and white nationalism.

If only he were alive for his struggle session and regrooving.

It seems the modern way to welcome women and minorities into organisations is to wipe the achievements of white men from the institutional memory and pretend they never existed.

Tim Newman, here.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

... pretend they never existed.

It will be interesting when they either have to start renaming bits of anatomy (the epiploic foramen of Winslow), surgical procedures (a Shouldice hernia repair), and instruments (Kelly forceps), or explain why they are named after yte men. Students of Color™ could be shaken like a soda can. Of course, all this could be a problem for the Mayo Clinic, but sacrifices must be made for Diversity™.

OTOH, the massive rewrite of textbooks to make gents like the above unpeople will certainly boost sales.

WTP

Tim Newman, here.

So up above where I called Harvard a clown college...I've written off their Business school, government, yadda-yadda-yadda as increasingly irrelevant and more about producing little PC snowflake zombies than serious people. However I was a little hesitant to use the term "clown college" due to their medical school, which I still had some faith in. But I figured if the medical school hadn't gone clown, it was only a matter of time so wth, clown college. And bottom of of the thread, here we are. Medicals school going clown.

Sam

If trans and non-binary people lack access to one of the most stable sources of social support, this could explain some of the existing health disparities

Actually this makes sense. Our physical and mental health absolutely require touch and intimate human relations, including the sexual variety. So it follows that sexual and social outcasts' already self-evident mental issues would be compounded by subsequent ostracization.

However...ahem...that does not give trans people any more "right" to intercourse than incels of any other variety. Perhaps if their activists would refrain from such loud, obnoxious, and authoritarian activism then further alienation could be avoided.

Speaking of the psychological need for physical intimacy, here's a video that I liked on the topic.

"They’re made-up ethnicities" - a radio station in Minneapolis found a way to stop telling Swedish jokes. They started using an ethnic group that is no longer around: the Hittites. An example of theirs "So these two Hittites named Sven and Ole walk into a bar..."

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Actually this makes sense.

Aside from the total lack of biological plausibility. Other than an association with prostate cancer, a lack of shaboinking creates no physical "health disparities" in any population.

Any physical "health disparities" that do exist among the "trans" are due solely to comorbid behaviors such as eating disorders and substance abuse, and are the same in any group with the same risk factors without the "trans".

If trans and non-binary people lack access to one of the most stable sources of social support...

Wherein the author implies that "trans and non-binary" are not stable, and no, it is not the responsibility of any normal person to shack up and provide "stable social support" with zer for xits mental health, (any more than it is for someone to stay with the crazy ex-girlfriend) that is what shrinks are for, which probably would have helped zy avoid this mess to begin with.

pst314

Actually this makes sense.

I recall reading about studies of monkeys which showed significant psychological harm for young monkeys that were deprived of intimate physical contact. Presumably the amount of harm is less (but not nonexistent) when experienced by adults.

David

Incidentally, and further to recent rumblings on the subject, the mini-series Chernobyl is well worth watching. As you’d imagine, it’s unrelentingly grim and serves as a sort of cerebral horror film, in which the horror comes not only from the accident but also, and more so, the culture of dishonesty required to sustain Soviet ideology. If you want a graphic indictment of Marxism in practice, and the lies and pathologies on which it must be built, it’s quite effective.

Sam

a lack of shaboinking creates no physical "health disparities"

I'm not talking purely sex, Mr. Muldoon. Lack of human contact is damaging, which is obvious considering we are a social species. My point was that cross-dressers are in a vicious cycle, the genesis of which is their cross-dressing.

If you want a graphic indictment of Marxism in practice...

Yeah, but it wasn't democratic Marxism, David. Checkmate.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Lack of human contact is damaging, which is obvious considering we are a social species.

In truth we are more akin to pack animals, not true social animals, but can (or at least could till the skills ceased to be taught) function fully as solitary beings. This whole "need" (want and need being wildly different things) for contact (as adults, human kids are woefully designed to fend for themselves) concept is a comparatively recent fabrication of the therapeutic community to explain away their own foibles and neuroses.

... the mini-series Chernobyl is well worth watching...

Only if you grit your teeth at the utter BS. I had to give it up when they got to the notion that someone with radiation poisoning is somehow contagious.

We need social contact with people. We need other people to act as mirrors. It keeps us sane.

Or when we're old and need a walker to climb the stairs, or feed ourselves.

That is why they make chair lifts and have people you can pay to feed you (which hardly qualifies as intimate social contact unless dinner comes with a happy ending).

We need social contact with people. We need other people to act as mirrors. It keeps us sane.

Some may want it, and may have gotten used to it, but it is not a necessity, nor is it hardwired into brains.

David

Only if you grit your teeth at the utter BS.

Whatever liberties may have been taken in terms of dramatising the effects of the radiation, it’s clear throughout, and especially in the final episode, that the monster in this horror story isn’t the uranium or the radioactive graphite. It’s the rotting Soviet state and the dishonesties it was built on. Not something we see every day in modern mainstream dramas.

@WTP
It wasn't Fully Automated Luxury Communism, as illuminated recently in the New York Times.

I've always thought that the natural first step towards Fully Automated Luxury Communism was Fully Voluntary Sexual Communism. We should have been pushing this into all high schools for the last decade. Any teenager (well, the boys, at least) who has grown up with Fully Voluntary Sexual Communism will find Fully Automated Luxury Communism to be a no-brainer, and we'll get it done in less than a generation!

What's Fully Voluntary Sexual Communism? I can't believe you haven't already heard the term. It's the social system in which every boy gets to have as much, uh, intimate relations as he wants with whichever girl he wants (including the prettiest ones), and every girl only has, uh, intimate relations when she wants to, which usually means she's in a long, loving, stable relationship with the man of her dreams. Or if she fancies the bad boy with the motorcycle. And it's all Fully Voluntary! I can't understand why anyone would oppose this. Don't you want people to be happy?

Tom
...and the lies and pathologies on which it must be built, it’s quite effective.

"Lies and pathologies" got me thinking about this: http://archive.is/skwlG

The link is to an archive page of the Irish Independent with the headline, "We want to force private motorists out of their cars". The money shot, for my money at least, is the opening of the fourth paragraph, "For those who insist on having a car..." Yep, all of us who insist on having cars in a country with a woeful public transportation system which will be magically updated at some mysterious, as yet unspecified, point in the future. That's some weapons grade lies and pathology right there.

And of course no one will speak out against it because of the Swedish female teenage Jesus, pbuh*.

For those who insist on having babies. Your life has been made better by the app we've given you to tell you how many blocks to walk to the nearest Zipcar or how many minutes to wait for the next on-demand communal taxi, but you'll ruin it for yourself and everyone else if you're bringing toddlers along for the trip.

But if you insist on not being a member of the childless urban elite, you don't deserve any sympathy or advocacy.
