It's like we're living a parallel universe.

David

It’s like we’re living a parallel universe.

I suppose that depends on whether you think young schoolgirls should be under the influence of, or have close contact with, a fifty-something man who refers to himself as a “girl” and has serious mental health issues - and who enjoys sharing on social media endless photos of himself dressed as a woman, or an approximation of one, with fake firearms, a riding crop, and ludicrously salacious comments, and who clearly enjoys disquieting people with his disorder, and who delights in transgression and incongruous sexual innuendo. Not, I think, an obvious candidate for what is considered a “safeguarding” role.

But apparently, when a once-reputable “girl-only organisation,” a famous charity, has a “trans-inclusive equality and diversity policy,” you may find yourself being punished for raising such concerns.

I dunno, these bigots who insist on holding onto outdated expectations of safety and wholesomeness for their daughters at girl-camp are really an outrage to modern lefty sensibilities aren't they? Thank God our hard-working police are on hand to threaten and berate them into checking their thinking.

On a somewhat lighter note, thanks to another barfly I am now subscribed to シャベチャン. I have no idea what the hell's going on but in case the police are monitoring I can assure them it's completely saphic and whoresome.

whoresome

This too is a hatecrime.

As for Sulley, he's no problem one angry father couldn't sort out.

David

Thank God our hard-working police are on hand to threaten and berate them into checking their thinking.

You have to wonder how the situation – specifically, Mr Sulley’s appointment - even came about, despite the absurdity, and despite what one might think of as fairly obvious reservations. Exactly how much coyness and mental contortion was involved?

Unless we’re supposed to believe that those responsible for the appointment, in a “safeguarding” role, didn’t bother to check the candidate’s social media, where warning signs were hard to miss, because they were so busy gushing with affirmation.

Because serious mental illness is something we must affirm, apparently.

Karl

When you're in a cult, the real world appears as through a glass, darkly.

Why does this thing never happen to the Boy Scouts? Sure, it has its problems with NAMBLA members seeking authority roles within it, but should a father tell such a person in not-so-subtle ways that they run the risk of vigilante justice, no one gets summoned by the police. It's almost as if women are . . . targeted.

David Davis

This is just one incident, in itself and - were it just one in isolation -(it's not) repellently outrageous and contrary to fundamental human morality, that it's now obvious there's a strategic plan afoot.

Even were it just a mistake to appoint this inwardly and outwardly tormented being to look after little girls, you have to consider that - as Ayn Rand said - "mistakes that big are always made deliberately".

I'm convinced there's a plan behind all this terrifying nonsense, and the objective is not the well-being and happiness of normal-people.

Meh. White women. They get what the deserve. OK, maybe not this specific one but I'll take it back if someone can show me where she stood up against the mob ever before. It is only because the PC police are coming after her woman-oriented concerns of a man entering female safe space is my default position unless proven otherwise. Like my dad told me when I was a kid, "If I ever punish you for something you didn't do, think of all the crap you got away with that I never found out about and apply it to that."

A half dozen of the little white women on my FB feed (about half of which being spouses of male friends) are throwing up memes about censorship. Most of them the same meme. What has driven this? One Tennessee school board chose not to use the comic book Maus to teach about the Holocaust. Granted I think some of the board's reasons are a bit weak, but it's not like they won't be teaching about the Holocaust. Just not using that specific book. OMG!!!11!, Censorship!!11!, And the first I saw of this Stephen King was leading the way. Censorship it is. Yes. Meanwhile real censorship goes on all around them and....they're good. But this book was 'banned'. Just like I was 'banned' from attending MIT. Repealing the 19th Amendment would go a longer way in this country than helicopters.

WTP

It came about because nobody SAID ANYTHING. See "white women" above. And this incident itself will pass so long as people are more willing to tolerate these things than they are willing to tolerate the abuse that comes to ONE or two...a minority anyway...for speaking up. Maybe some Canadian truckers could help. But judging from what the rest of Canadian pussy citizens are willing to speak up about and tolerate, maybe even that won't help.

I'm convinced that meaningful pushback against the obscenity of wokism won't begin until at least half those supporting it have been personally adversely affected .

Can also be said about private citizens who approve of men in women's private spaces. Not intellectually or morally qualified to carry out the duties of citizenship.

The real coup is how the trans took the heights of victimhood and are now totally in charge. They are winning sports championships and setting records, dressing in the women's swimmer's locker rooms with the girls, in charge of women's shelters, in charge of little girls outings. It is beyond belief. They even have the police in charge of their enforcement. Too bad about those little girls...oh never mind, the woke don't even care.

Sam Duncan

“safeguarding” ... “trans woman” ... “hate crime”

I still think Huxley was more accurate, but Orwell was on to something.

“No, he’ll hold onto power as hard as he can,” Levant stated. “Let me tell you what I think the point is: The point is the convoy itself. To show that you’re not alone. To show that you’re not the crazy one; they are.”

Orwell again. Propaganda exists to make you think you're crazy, that it's just you. I'm actually reading Nineteen Eighty-Four right now, and that's basically what at least the first two parts are all about: Smith wondering if he's the only person in the world who thinks the way he does, and the joy in discovering that he isn't.

So yeah, Levant's absolutely right. It's the reason The Authorities hate the free internet, too. They rant against “social media”, but nothing makes them happier than to see the online mob corralled into a few easily-controllable websites.

“Inclusive Excellence.”

Yep, he was definitely on to something.

I’m no expert, but I can’t help but notice that the rifle in the photo at the top of the Critic article really looks very much like a real L85A2 or possibly A3 variant, not a replica. Presumably one belonging to the cadets. I don’t agree with our restrictive gun laws, and not really sure of the law here, but that looks rather iffy.

Tom
Detective Inspector Steven O’Neill gave us the following statement: “This incident will be fully reviewed by a dedicated detective specialising in hate crime. We are maintaining an open mind and reviewing all the available information in the case.”

Colour me unconvinced but if you have "a dedicated detective specialising in hate crime" you're probably not really "maintaining an open mind". Also, if you have people on staff specifically to deal with this issue I imagine you're going to get a lot more of it to justify the jobs - got to protect that dosh.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

...looks very much like a real L85A2...

Look like, but because of laws over there more likely an Airsoft which are pretty much indistinguishable from the real thing.

Ian

I dunno. The modified charging handle (replaced from the A1), the extendible bipod just visible at the bottom of the foregrip, the picatinny top rails and side rails, etc., all look totally real. The replica versions I've seen online look nothing like it. I'd put money on it being a real one.

Governor Squid

At least there would be one real thing in the picture...

Farnsworth M Muldoon

The replica versions I've seen online look nothing like it.

Having any semiauto rifle in other than .22 rimfire is illegal in the UK, and I imagine waving it around in one's house is probably also, so doubt this is real.

As far as appearance goes, this one is a WE brand Airsoft, photo from a UK Airsoft forum.

David

In answer to David’s question--exactly how much coyness and mental contortion was involved?—I’d venture the guess: none.

Well, the level of inversion and absurdity is such that mere accident or incompetence seems rather inadequate as an explanation. Instead, it seems possible, even likely, that those involved in the choosing did so with a certain delight in their own perversity.

Darleen

It came about because nobody SAID ANYTHING.

All the years I was a Girl Scout, I never knew who was leading the organization nationwide.

pst314

The problems with celebrity architects: They don't know local conditions, and don't bother to find out or collaborate with local builders who do know. And why is that? They don't care about anything but creating "cool" looking buildings that generate publicity: The real needs of real people are irrelevant. And don't get me started on entertainment celebrities.

pst314

Having any semiauto rifle in other than .22 rimfire is illegal in the UK...

I've seen cryptic comments like that before. Rimfire vs. centerfire = where the firing pin hits the cartridge, right? Why would the law care about that? I would have assumed that the law would only care about the size of the round.

Ian

As far as appearance goes, this one is a WE brand Airsoft, photo from a UK Airsoft forum.

Yes, you could be right there.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Rimfire vs. centerfire = where the firing pin hits the cartridge, right?

Correct, in general the most common .22 rimfire for rifles is the, oddly enough, .22LR (long rifle) which with a typical bullet weight of 40 grains (also common) has a muzzle energy of about 130 ft lbs at a muzzle velocity of around 1200* FPS.

However, regarding the size of the bullet, an M4 (or the real L85A2) fires the 5.56NATO (centerfire), the bullet of which is a whopping .223, but with the standard 55 grain bullet has a muzzle velocity of around 3200 FPS and a muzzle energy of around 1300 ft lbs.

For comparison (and our friends in the UK) the .303 British with the 174 grain bullet leaves the muzzle at about 2500 FPS, and has a muzzle energy of around 2400 ft lbs.

*[Key word around, there are ballistic tables you can look up precise numbers]

pst314

Farnsworth: Thanks. But why does the law care about rimfire vs. centerfire?

WTP

All the years I was a Girl Scout, I never knew who was leading the organization nationwide.

I wouldn’t expect the little girls, even the older ones (though see what someone said above about Boy Scouts) to say or notice the problem even if they did encounter this person. Mostly. But there were adults, parents, troop leaders etc. who had to notice this person did not belong in this position. Even in this specific situation of the police investigation, there are cops, chiefs, administrators, etc. who know that sending out police to investigate this mother is flat-out stupid and wrong. But they say nothing.

Again, Burke was it?

Farnsworth M Muldoon

But why does the law care about rimfire vs. centerfire?

Damage, they are considered "safer" or less lethal due to the generally lower energy.

Because in general the only rimfire one is likely to come across are the low velocity, low energy rounds such as the .22LR (there is a .22 magnum with a muzzle energy of 300 ft lbs). There are less common rimfire cartridges, e.g, .17 Hornady with a muzzle energy of around 240 ft lbs, and there are several obsolete rounds.

By contrast, the smallest centerfire I know off offhand is the .17 Hornet with a muzzle energy of around 550 ft lbs. A typical 9mm handgun round clocks in at about 350 ft lbs (can go much higher).

The "so what" is that in general centerfire cartridges will have higher muzzle energy (due to higher muzzle velocity - KE=1/2MVe2) which, broadly speaking, translates to more damage, e.g., more injury or chance of killing, or penetrate a wall and nail your neighbor, hence why they would be deemed illegal over centerfire.

Again, that is broadly speaking, if you fire a .22 Short (80 ft lbs) and hit someone in the aorta, unless that person is already on an operating table, most likely he will join the choir invisible. .22 also have a nasty habit of bouncing around in a body depending on what they hit, for example, hit a rib and bounce into the spleen, so unless we just consider the esoterica of things like wound cavities, the notion of safer or less lethal is an odd one indeed.

Best COA, of course, is not to get shot...

I've read the Malicious Communications Act a dozen times trying to find where these charges stem from and I'm flummoxed. The act states that the communication must have intent to cause distress or anxiety by way of a message which is indecent or grossly offensive, a threat or is known or believed by the sender to be false.

Not sure how any of that applies. So much of it requires those making the charges to know what the sender thinks and believes, which is, of course, impossible. So many laws today are so poorly written that it's shocking they can be implemented at all. Have courts not also struggled with who gets to determine what is indecent?

The only thing that appears to be malicious in this case is the zeal with which the authorities have chosen to implement it.

nanagram

Islam turns out to be right about women and their protection, or at least better than this human rights managerialism with its best practices and evidence-based guidelines to achieve the noble goal of getting perverts into the same room as children.

Turns out that fatherly authority - my daughter will not under any circumstances be joining - is a better safeguard of children. And communal consensus on what a threat is, with followup action of the high sort (turning the attention of the human rights apparat from trans- to Islamo-phobia), and of the low sort (if you go near our children, you'll have me and my 60 cousins to deal with.)

WTP

It’s done on purpose. Also in contracts and building codes and on and on. The courts are not struggling. The worse the law the easier it is on the court. If the law is vague enough, it gives the court pier to do whatever they damn well please. Who’s to stop them?

It's almost as if women are . . . targeted.

It is because women tend to go about this in a very social way. Why would the police be so concerned about the "misgendering"? Because the female leadership of the organization were unable to discreetly handle internal communications. Either they showed the letter to the guy or some kindly, female administrator took offense on his behalf.

I wonder if there is a way to test the system with a parent from a different subgroup writing a similar letter without the referring to the man as a man. Would he be sacked? Would that second parent be ignored or attacked in some fashion?

The simple solution would be similar to what has happened to the U.S. Boy Scouts: leave the organization.

The act states that the communication must have intent to cause distress or anxiety by way of a message which is indecent or grossly offensive, a threat or is known or believed by the sender to be false.

Maybe this is not actual law, but my recollection is there has been at least a push in recent years to enable prosecutions based on communications being perceived as offensive. Or was that in Australia?

Daniel Ream

Why does this thing never happen to the Boy Scouts?

It does. It doesn't get press because no one cares what happens to men and boys.

And pace WTP, despite having their own sex-segregated organization Guides and their mothers waged years of legal warfare to force the Scouts to let them in while keeping Guides girls-only. My sympathy is limited. I believe the appropriate word is "checkmate".

chose not to use the comic book Maus to teach about the Holocaust

I have no idea what the board's reasoning is but I own a copy of Maus and I wouldn't use it either. It's an interesting artifact and perhaps it has a place in a university survey course on the Holocaust in popular culture, but it's a comic book. High school students are more than capable of reading The Diary of Anne Frank.

The point is the convoy itself. To show that you’re not alone. To show that you’re not the crazy one; they are.

The term for that is preference cascade. We saw it with Brendan Straka. It's easy to forget that we actually outnumber them; they just control the levers of power. But pace Frank Herbert it's not who controls the supply chain; it's who controls the flow of the supply chain. The convoy is more than capable of literally starving the country of Canada into submission. And that's probably what it's going to take.

Sam

"Rimfire" is also what happens about 3 hours after eating a particularly spicy curry.

Be safe out there.

RE the Boy Scouts: I, having gone from Cub Scout through Eagle Scout myself, refuse to let my son anywhere near that organization. Searching for alternatives reminded me of car shopping. Ultimately I decided that simply taking him on hikes and teaching him what I've learned was the best option - for both of us.

CayleyGraph
(The Critic has seen the email and can confirm her description of it. It does, however, refer to Sulley as a “male”…)
I remember when trans activism first started to come into the mainstream, when the sophisticated types insisted that "man" and "woman" should be terms that referred to expressions of social roles (or somesuch). However, said sophisticated types also insisted that "male" and "female" would be reserved for biological phenotype (before going on to insist that we also need words for intersex individuals, etc.).

I didn't believe them then; I just wondered whether or not they believed it themselves.

"Fred Colon and Nobby Nobbs, having been roused from their lengthy coffee break, proceeded gently up Broad Way, giving the ol’ uniform an airing …

"They had chosen this particular street because it was busy and wide and you didn’t get too many trolls and dwarfs in this part of town. The reasoning was faultless. In lots of areas, right now, dwarfs or trolls were wandering around in groups or, alternately, staying still in groups in case any of those wandering bastards tried any trouble in this neighborhood. There had been little flare-ups for weeks.

"In these areas, Nobby and Fred considered, there wasn’t much peace, so it was a waste of effort to keep what little was left of it, right? … Whereas in big streets like Broad Way there was lots of peace, which, obviously, needed keeping."

I'm convinced there's a plan behind all this terrifying nonsense, and the objective is not the well-being and happiness of normal-people.

I don't think there is a plan.

It is a virus which originated among continental European intellectuals and spread to Arts faculties in America and has now leaked into the general population having infested every organisation that was traditionally left wing with a primary emphasis on economic redistribution.

It has no articulated ideology- it just destroys. It shapes itself by destroying all the social norms that have underpinned society. The life blood of conservatism in West was Christianity. Without that conservatism in the west is largely without an intellectual underpinning or any sense of moral certainty. It's resistance to the virus is weak- unlike the resistance to "orthodox" communism for most of the 20th century

Lest we forget- the willing adoption of woke policing has been done largely in the 12 years in which a self-styled Conservative government has been in power in Britain.

It is like any ideological based revolution, minus the bloodshed so far. Once a certain stage is reached any moderating tendency is brushed aside.

It is the Terror without the guillotine. The Khmer Rouge without the extermination.

It is driven by people who would happily have been Stalin's snitches, Mao's Little Shits etc.

I have long thought that the trans mafia activism which is infesting and feels like it is taking over everything is the white man's way of getting their own back from the feminazis, and maybe even the BLM types and the ones who cry islamophobia if you look at them wrong. Where else can a white man get this much boot licking power in today's western world? Amazing how they go from being the cause of all the world's troubles to top of the victim totem pole just by putting on a frock and some lipstick. They've pretty much beaten the feminazis who folded like a cheap suit, but the BLM types and their critical race theory grift and DIE enforcers are not going to be so easy. Ditto for the muslims.

ccscientist

Hate crimes: burning a cross on black folks lawn--yes, designed to terrify them. Objecting to a weirdo supervising little girls: not in any sense the same. Ironically, in UK you can get in trouble photographing crowds if children are in the crowds, but apparently not for being in charge of those same children.

Truck convoy: notice how terrified the gov and media are. The prime minister left town--for safety? What, afraid he would get run over? Equating a peaceful convoy to insurrection: why does this sound familiar?

Open thread/other topic...

Wife and I saw where friends, actually my friends' parents, had volunteered at the local Arnold Palmer Invitational in the past (before the Damnpanic). A former co-worker did as well maybe 20 years ago, and we thought that once I'm not working anymore we would give something like that a try, thinking it might be like when we were extras in a movie years ago. Last year was too much of a mess but this year, after getting Christmas and niece's wedding out of the way, I thought I'd at least make a first stab at it. As I relate this, be aware that I was highly suspicious that something like this would come up...just not this extreme.

So last night we each send the on-line application off (no place on the form to put two names together) and get auto replies saying someone would contact us. Well early this morning, my wife (she chose a wider more miscellaneous category to volunteer for, I picked "cool" ones) got a reply from the committee that organizes "Gallery control". This consists of basically holding up "Quiet" cards, spotting errant balls in the gallery, etc. We gave a wide open option, volunteering for every day, both AM & PM but there was no specifics on the reply to her. So she replied back what the specific hours might be (need to feed dog before and after) and, since this job would be outside, would masks be required. After sending that email, she noticed there was some computer generated line about how much she had paid. I had kinda ignored it thinking some dumb GUI guy screwed up his WTFWCTN forms. She digs around further and discovers (not totally to my surprise) that you have to PAY $110/pp to volunteer for this work. Working all day, in the (granted winter but still could easily be in the high 80's one day) Florida sun for free. You see you need to pay for your t-shirts, hats, etc. Then I find out (this time to my surprise) that you don't even get lunch out of the deal. You're expected to bring your own. It is, of course, for the children you understand. Hell, tickets are only $50 - $100 at the low end. Granted that's each day. But still, do what you want and no stress. The purse for this thing is around $10 million. There's sponsors galore, food and trinket sales, yadda-yadda-yadda. But not even a free lunch for the help. Granted though, if they can pull the ultimate Tom Sawyer con, sit in their air-conditioned comfort sipping champaign, eating caviar, hob-knobbing with top athletes, well I'm tempted to say "more power to 'em" but it seems these people have a little bit too much power. Yet people, people I know, stupid people, are willing to be suckers. Though here it is the end of January, the tournament starts end of February (my past recollection was it was a mid-March thing), and they're hot on an email from my wife and I at the last minute.

Pity. I was looking forward to possibly having to toss some lout for being a lout. Still not worth the $110 privilege.

I strongly suspect that this is exactly "Lia" Thompson's agenda.

Further to that, in his case and the other male athletes claiming to be women, including those high school boy track runners - I think they also want to win, and they know or fear that they can't hack it against other males. The woke left has given them the perfect set-up to keep winning, get accolades and money, just because they claim to be female, and viola - easier opponents.

I've also wondered about CEOs and board members of big companies - companies get pilloried all the time for not having enough women in high paying, high power positions. Why don't the male CEOS and such follow the example of the athletes and just claim to be women, get that nice round 50% at the top that the feminists claim should be, and be done with it. They don't even have to take hormones or even try to pretend - just announce some pronouns and Robert is your father's brother - lotsa women CEOs. But they don't.

I would like to know if "Lia" Thompson is getting any scholarships or any financial compensation for his athletics.

The reason I think it's perhaps deeper than just gaming the system is that there's now reports that he swings his junk around in front of the girls in the changerooms, knowing it makes them uncomfortable; and he lost to a female dysphoric from another team who had only had a double mastectomy and was not yet taking hormones. That's just not believable unless he threw the match.

Anyone want to bet on what's going to happen when no-one catcalls them..?

If you believe the internet, Castreau is in B.C.

Wolfie was never going to be called a fox.

Or a woman for that matter.

I think he did. That UPenn coach feels like the type to say, "Okay, ya gotta lose one just so no one get suspicious." The problem with that strategy is that he runs the risk of Thomas bragging that he could have won it but let the other guy win.

Instead, it seems possible, even likely, that those involved in the choosing did so with a certain delight in their own perversity.

Yes. I was picturing woke wine moms instantly choosing the path of maximum piety points, but deliberate malevolence does seem more likely.

Hmm. I was thinking more that if he throws a match to another erstwhile dysmorphic it makes it harder to claim he has an insurmountable physical advantage. But getting orders from above is also likely.

The girls can put an end to this in a heartbeat by walking away from the swim team and refusing to compete until this madness goes away. With all that new free time they could try studying.

That.

The hustle within the hustle. The thing is, it's pretty obvious to his teammates who workout with him every day, if not to opposing swimmers and coaches, that he's tanking the race. They need to nip this in the bud...probably already too late...and refuse to participate in the farce. He can't seriously tank a race against nobody. Yes, he can slow himself down if he swims alone, and over a short distance swimmers actually (used to) do something like that in training, but over a 500 yard race it would seem a bit harder to get the "right" time. Not that he couldn't train for that but that would be even more obvious to the teammates. But then again, what's more obvious than a chick with a dick in a tight swimming suit. It's all a bad hustle and they're/we're all fools for putting up with it.

According to 4chan he's in Quebec, province not city, someone posted the GPS coordinates and listing of the rental house he's in. They're quite frightening in their own autistic way, I certainly hope I never do anything to tick them off.

Pretty much. (SFW, if not your blood pressure).
