LOL. That's not disturbing at all.

David

It’s quite a thing.

If anyone’s getting aroused by this thread, I’m fetching the spray bottle.

David

I’m now getting lots of manicure and pedicure videos in my YouTube recommendations. So there’s that.

Bigland

Finally a way to check the ends of your shoes for spiders.

David

It’s warm here today and the windows are open. A fly just landed on my laptop screen, right on the big toe. Which is the icing on the cake, really.

Maynard G. Krebs

Things are looking up!

This of this blog as a chemical-free anaphrodisiac.

PiperPaul

That's toetally creepy.

Dan C

Yes, it’s disturbing that someone posted that. I’m more concerned that our host found it.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

I’m more concerned that our host found it.

I'm more concerned it will show up on the bar foods - who wants to see an inverted rectum looking back?

pst314

David would just be giving us a philosophy lesson: When you stare into the bar snack, the bar snack stares back.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

From the Department of Making Shit Up, "Therians".

A Therian, short for Therianthrope or Therianthropy, is someone, most commonly a human, who feels a spiritual connection with an animal that is not a Homo sapiens.

"Transtherians do not transition...". Good to know.

...but our identities are valid and should be respected...

No to both, thank you very many.

Steve E

They Follow You Round The Room

Literally. They're attached to feet.

It's a remarkable job. Has got to cost more than a shellac nail job.

Also, an effective way to cure someone of a foot fetish. Oops, did I say that out loud.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Meanwhile, this guy wants to go to Republican gender reveal parties.

Squires

No to both, thank you very many.

I vote we put them in zoos and don't feed them.

Ed Snack

Nailed it !

Isn't that just Otherkin all over again? Are they just looping now?

David
I don’t want to keep making fucking videos about this.

Yes, you do, dear. Yes, you do.

[+]

Yes, you do, dear. Yes, you do.

That.

David

That.

It does, I think, inadvertently reveal a certain contrivance and dishonesty. The nature of the game. Or,

“I don’t enjoy talking about how fascinating and complicated I am. And scolding you for your lack of sophistication - relative to me and my fascinating complications - is such a chore…”

And so, Little Miss Complicated is making another video about the thing she totally doesn’t care about.

David

And note, Miss Complicated’s indignation, all this pissy scolding, is based on a friendly five-word comment in which someone praised and encouraged her.

Gratitude, baby.

John D

“I don’t want to keep making fucking videos about this.”

Her Tik Tok name is gendered. LOL

David

And Little Miss Complicated, being so daring and original, loudly signals her affinity with just about every modish cause of the social class she wishes to join: “Abolition. BLM, Landback, free Palestine…” Needless to say, “whiteness” or “ytness” crops up repeatedly, and always pejoratively.

God, these tiresome narcissistic bitches.

Mags

God, these tiresome narcissistic bitches.

Tiresome racist narcissistic bitches.

FTFY

David

Tiresome racist narcissistic bitches.

That too. What’s striking to me, having seen so many of these creatures, is that the mouthings and psychology are so eerily uniform. It’s as if they’re regurgitating a script. It sounds like a programme running. NPC, as they say.

And Little Miss Complicated will likely waft through life telling herself, and anyone within earshot, that any shunning or rejection or failure to defer is the result of “ytness” or racism or “transphobia” or some such. Rather than the fact that she’s just another churlish, preening, aggravating cow.

Squires

God, these tiresome narcissistic bitches.

I vote we put them in zoos and don't feed them.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

...signals her affinity with just about every modish cause of the social class she wishes to join...

Yet she describes herself as a Desi and elsewhere pins it down to India. Median income Indian households: $126K; yte devils: $66k . The oppression under which she suffers must be awful.

Burnsie

Monsters.

This story doesn't surprise me one iota. What surprised me is that I didn't see anything about this in the NY media. I guess it doesn't fit the narrative.

It happened in New Jersey less than 50 miles from where I live, yet I only learned about it through the British media.

Weird flex, as the kids say, but OK, "this is what white supremacy looks like..."

Tiktok is the site where white kids put up short videos of themselves imitating song and dance fads. Which means programming black physical mannerisms into their muscle memory and programming black verbal tics into their language reflexes. Thus a 100% chance that their public internet record will contain evidence against them that can be interpreted as blackface or as cultural appropriation. And a constant danger that a careless singalong with their friends will end up in the news as "a high school is reckoning with its legacy of racism after video emerges of a busload of soccer players shouting racial slurs".

I have the impression that the language of "sister" and "you go girl" and "haters gonna hate" is part of a culture of high self-esteem black women egging each other on to forego realistic self-evaluation, but it's become so widely adopted among young women of all races that it's hardly just a black thing any more. The Queen Bee going "nuh-uh, you can't say that" might also come from the same culture. For the generation that grew up on Tiktok to accuse each other of culturally appropriating black culture is the pot calling the kettle black (or the pot calling the kettle not entitled to be black, or whatever).

Her videos don't do much to disprove a generalization about Indian immigrants born in the US: envy of the high status of blondes, high status that should rightly go to people of their own noble ancestry and diligence in study; contempt and fear of blacks, uncomplicated by historical guilt, but aware of the usefulness of black anger as a lever against whites; a warm familiarity with caste systems where ancestry carries status and high status people can demean low status people without the moral restraints of democracy or ethnic solidarity.

Big Toe is watching you.

ccscientist

Little mis complicated: if she is non-binary, perhaps she should refer to her masculine side for the "don't give a shit about insults" personality character trait. Actual guys insult each other and laugh. Try it, non-binary being.
Immigrant and ethnic groups that make more than whites: Indians, Chinese, Japanese, Persians, Jews, Nigerians. Worst white supremacists ever. It is hysterically funny for a Brahmin Indian to claim oppression. Total lack of self-awareness.

David
“So, I get asked a lot, ‘Why be a drag-queen music teacher?’”

Because three-year-olds need “visibly queer” drag-queen teachers, apparently.

Jen

Because three-year-olds need “visibly queer” drag-queen teachers, apparently.

I wish these people would deal with their own issues on their own time.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Because three-year-olds need “visibly queer” drag-queen teachers...

...I want to make sure generations coming up now get the chance to see visibly queer teachers and professionals...

TBF, not a bad thing entirely, they'll know who to avoid, like this guy.

Sam Duncan

Just when you thought it couldn't get any dumber...

Actress Yasmin Finney will appear as Rose Tyler in the upcoming 60th anniversary celebration, and most Doctor Who fans won't need to reference their HBO Max subscriptions to realize she's not the original Rose.

Yeah. She's black. Also, not technically an actress, as such, if you get my drift. Because of course “she” bloody isn't. (Remember when you were supposed to call them all “actors”, regardless of sex? Funny how that changed practically overnight when blokes decided they wanted to be actresses, isn't it? Feminism!)

Mind you, I like the sign-off:

Fans will have something to look forward to in the meantime, as BBC America will send Jodie Whittaker's Doctor on her way in a farewell episode later in 2022.

That can be read in two ways. I wonder if it's intentional.

Uma Thurmond's Feet

From the Doctor Who article shilling for a trans Rose Tyler: It's also worth noting that the franchise has about 100 other scenarios it can use to justify this casting.

They really think we're dim.

David

Fans will have something to look forward to…

I was under the impression that the show was rapidly running out of fans, its ratings having halved in the last five years, and then, as the wokeness escalated and really bad writing become the default, declining even more. I haven’t watched an episode in years, just clips, but on YouTube I have seen several die-hard enthusiasts tying themselves in knots trying to excuse the show’s rather obvious shortcomings and general lack of charm, before finally, reluctantly, admitting just how awful the thing has become.

Captain Nemo

What became tiresome to me about Dr. Who (and I say this as an occasional watcher, not a fan as such) wasn't the hammy over-acting, or the bad CGI, or even the tediously convoluted plots, but the tendency to constantly shove a very obviously partial world-view down my throat. It seemed that every episode couldn't resist shoehorning in the topic du jour of Islington-ite dinner conversation, no matter how random or relevant to what was going on in the episode at hand. I wanted to spend an hour watching something fun and distracting, and not spend that hour being condescendingly lectured to by a bunch of smug metropolitan luvvies. Which is why, like millions of others in the end, I switched off.

As Steve 2 once pointed out hereabouts, it’s odd how a centuries-old time-travelling alien, a witness to the cosmic and inconceivable, turns out to have the socio-political pretensions, and the historical parochialism, of a middle-class BBC employee who votes Labour and reads the Guardian.

Captain Nemo

As Steve 2 once pointed out hereabouts...

Yes. That.

Daniel Ream

I stopped watching after Chris Eccleston's Doctor, and I was not surprised in the slightest to learn the real reason for his premature exit.

Squires

Why be a drag-queen music teacher?

Zoo no food.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

...hammy over-acting, or the bad CGI...

Speaking of which, why the hell was Tom Cruise, of all one dimensional actors, any part of Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee shindig?

pst314

British Royal Family are Scientologists? ;-)

sonny wayz

Which is why, like millions of others in the end, I switched off.

Never a... what's the Who term for Trekkie?, but enjoyed watching. Until the current Doctor (in her debut) called me an idiot for carrying a pocketknife. So screw you and the Tardis you rode in on.

pst314

A pocketknife??

pst314

The Scientologists have secretly infiltrated the Royal Family?
Scientology is a plot by the Royal Family?
(The latter would be a Lyndon LaRouche conspiracy theory.)

Daniel Ream

Scientology is a plot by the Royal Family?

I have it on good authority they're actually alien space lizards.

(Fun fact: I was once banned from a gaming forum for making that joke, because the theory was espoused by David Icke years before he turned to whatever-flavour-of-Nazism he currently spouts. Apparently that tenuous connection was enough to trigger the "no white supremacy posts" rule.)

Alex DeWynter

Never a... what's the Who term for Trekkie?

I believe they call themselves Whovians, but I haven't been paying all that much attention since Tom Baker left.

Tom

...I was not surprised in the slightest to learn the real reason for his premature exit.

Don't leave us hanging! What was it? Searching just shows that he 'didn't enjoy the environment or culture' which is rather wishy-washy.

pst314

These do not follow you around the room but you may have trouble not staring in disbelief.

pst314

The Old Ones must be paid.

sonny wayz

A pocketknife??

Yep. In order to defeat the threat de jour, the group needed to strip the insulation off some wire. One of the companions-to-be (it was her debut) asked if anybody had a knife. The Doctor said, essentially, that anyone carrying a knife was an idiot. Easy to say if you've got a sonic screwdriver, I guess.

pst314

...The Doctor said, essentially, that anyone carrying a knife was an idiot...

I suppose because the Guardian-reading boobs at the BBC think that might influence fans to not commit knife crime, right? As if street criminals and gangs are Who fans and would pay attention anyway. I have heard that it is a Serious Crime for an honest citizen to carry a simple pocket knife.

...Easy to say if you've got a sonic screwdriver, I guess.

The most useful application of a Sonic Screwdriver* is to shove it forcefully up the ass of a BBC kommissar.

* Maybe I'm old, but these "magic do anything" devices got tiresome a long time ago.

Pooklord

I have heard that it is a Serious Crime for an honest citizen to carry a simple pocket knife.

Wait, what? Is that true? What about dishonest ones?
