Meanwhile, in Canada.

We don't pussy-foot around up here. I'm not going to take any lip about it either.

Cross-cultural interaction

People are laughing. Is that a dumb question?

How prescipient of you Sir.

Can anyone identify that shirt? Some organization maybe?

Musical interlude.

Visualize Herman Munster or Lurch dancing to that.

One woman’s war on “promiscuous kissing.”

A much less notable musical interlude, but I thought it was very funny when I was 13.

My elected government representative, ladies and gentlemen.

British people, you can have your King Arthur returning to save the land in its darkest hour thing if we can borrow Oliver Cromwell. We'll have him back by 11.

Meanwhile, in Canada.

I don't recall this Kids in the Hall sketch.

That’s a lot of transgender paedophilia.

Ahem:

"Whenever women protest the inclusion of trans-identified males in our spaces, we’re shouted down and dismissed as transphobes and hysterics. There is no risk, we’re in danger, this never happens, we’re told. When we produce evidence to the contrary, we’re accused of bigotry and of demonising trans people. We cannot win."

Why is that, as man, this scenario seems somehow so familar?

We really need a clear and handy term for this particular strain of malignant leftist, like faggonist or onanazi.

Morning, all.

Yes.

As we’ve seen before, our self-styled “teacher in drag” is apparently accustomed to being indulged and having his preferences prioritised over those of pretty much anyone else.

David

this never happens, we’re told.

And yet it does, rather a lot. As noted before, transgender people report severe childhood abuse, often childhood sexual abuse, at rates far higher than is found in the wider population. It’s practically a signature. Adults who have been violated as children are in turn much more likely to act inappropriately with minors. In light of which, the, shall we say, oversharing of so many transgender and “non-binary” educators, their disregard for normal boundaries - and other, more concerning behaviour - is not entirely surprising. What is surprising is that it seems we aren’t supposed to acknowledge such concerns.

"Give us your favourite track and we’ll serve up a sweet playlist with similar songs that are covers or are nothing like what you are looking for (because all we do is word match and not particularly well) that you’ll love will leave you saying WTF?!"

Songs like X. For finding new music like the music you know.

Enter "Maybe I'm Amazed", get 5 versions of it. Enter "Radar Love", get 4 versions and one other Golden Earring song. Are two of my favorite songs so unique, they can't find suggestions?

Looks like there’s a purge going on in science fiction-dom. If only they had a union or trade association to stand up for them.

Sarcasm, I assume. After all, we already know that SFWA is run by wannabe Stalinists.

So much fun watching revolutionaries eat their children like Saturn.

WTP

Songs like X. For finding new music like the music you know.

My wife put in "Gold Dust Woman" and one song that came out was a rough early Velvet Underground "Sweet Jane" which sounded live and also unfamiliar to me. I could swear I've heard every version of that song ever done. But memory is fading and it has been a while so...? Still thought that was an interesting "song like" for "Gold Dust Woman".

Fred the Fourth

Purge in SF...
Well, I read the linked statement, and...who knows what actually happened, since it's just the purged person's pov. Sounds like "cool kids" in middle school, knifing a designated victim for ego gratification. I could clearly see the glee in the accusers actions.

What struck me was the poor quality of the writing.
From a mature, award-winning author?

pst314

What struck me was the poor quality of the writing.

Off-the-cuff writing is often rather sloppy. And some writers even need editors to do serious fix-up work on their manuscripts.

Piko

One woman’s war on “promiscuous kissing.”

Not what I expected.

The themes I expected were: whites (not WASPs in this case but Cincinnati Germans, you know, like Doris Day) and their sexual repressions; social kissing seen in the heartland as effete and un-American; the dark forces of xeno- and homophobia underlying respectable concerns about public health; and wellactually, studies have shown that your probability of catching a disease from kissing is 0.00x% so they're not only prigs but numerically clueless. Those themes are preset in the NYTimesomatic, maybe turn up the theme of white middle class Karens butting in when people are trying to have fun, then feed in the comic premise and the article writes itself.

Instead the themes were: pioneer woman in STEM not taken seriously by the establishment, a pioneer of #metoo bodily autonomy, and COVID-era ideas about what constitute reasonable risks and proportionate responses.

Pole vault: the guy is a world champion but he looks like a spoiled rich kid and certainly not strong enough to do that. Reality doesn't always follow our preconceptions.
Wow, Canada has lost the plot.

In case you want to know, here's Stephanie Burke and the kinds of books she writes.

Going out on a limb here, but no thanks. Extremely doubtful that I'm missing much...

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Great googly moogly, even the wypipo are getting on the act. Cultural appropriation, I tells ya.

pst314

Meanwhile, in Canada.

It is both comical and cringe-inducing to listen to a woman talk about how her vagina is "a source of strength and empowerment". Consider all those women protesters wearing vagina hats.

Mass psychosis.

asiaseen

Intruiging. Ms Burke is a multi award-winning wife

I do wonder what for - best blowjobs? fastest knicker-dropper? can cook?

Farnsworth M Muldoon

OK, groomer.

Pride Parades and the Pride festivals that follow are noisy and crowded. They’re filled with sights that may be new to kids, like public nudity and kink. Not to mention that Pride parades aren’t the most sober of places. So is it appropriate to take your young kids to Pride?

Considering the benefits for all families — including seeing other LGBTQ+ families like yours, or showing up as an ally if your family members are straight and cisgender — the answer is absolutely.

Consider the benefits - I'm drawing a blank, but what four year old doesn't dream of seeing saggy middle age men with their johnsons waving in the breeze if it means getting a rainbow ice cream cone and balloon?

Sam Duncan

“Neutralising tremors.“

A bit late for my old mum, but good to see. As Billy Conolly said, Parkinson should have kept his bloody disease to himself.

“That’s a lot of drag-for-kiddies.”

Okay, just imagine for a moment that these weren't blokes pretending to be women, but actual strippers and pole dancers.

“One woman’s war on 'promiscuous kissing.'”

“By the turn of the century, it’s casual infection—coughing, spitting, sneezing, hand shaking. ... Any skin-to-skin contact ... really just [has] almost a phobic quality to it.”

Heh. Imagine that. What a bunch of nuts those old-timey people were. That kind of stupidity could never happen in today's modern enlightened world of TheScience™, right?

“Musical interlude.”

An oddly appropriate one, in the circs.

“Sea of the Sweaty People and other map features.”

Why is England represented with its modern borders?

David

the answer is absolutely.

Somewhat related.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

A long way from Father Duffy of The Rainbow Division in the trenches, from a different rainbow group Isaac Simmons delivers a virtual sermon...

“God is nothing,” the self-described “dragavangelist” repeats throughout the poem...the source of queerness, describing him as “nothing but a drag queen with a microphone of biblical f***ing proportions,” “nothing, but if she were, she would be ‘yes, queen’-ing her way down the runways of Paris and Montreal...

Well, OK, then. Never a guy with a net around when you need him.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Bull's testicles and squid ink, and more map features.

Fred the Fourth

Pst314, as you note, possibly an off the cuff bit, needing editing.
However, I read the publisher bio at Uma's link, and...apparently Burke's publisher also needs an editor.
For many years, my habit when browsing unfamiliar books in a library or store, was to open to a random page near the middle and read a paragraph or two. Writing like those examples cited encourages swift reshelving. And significant time-saving.

Fred the Fourth

Also laughed at Burke's bio description of her authorial range.
All the way from sex shifting dragons to ... pastel challenged (?) urban sprites. She's "done it all."
Sounds like the fan fic my kid's high school friends wrote.

pst314

Okay, just imagine for a moment that these weren't blokes pretending to be women, but actual strippers and pole dancers.

It's only a matter of time before we see lots of public declarations that it is "healthy" for very young children to be exposed to lap-dance clubs, massage parlors, and whatever you call those places where anonymous sex is obtained though holes in walls.

pst314

Pride Parades and the Pride festivals that follow...

Exposing children to this stuff is a particularly reprehensible perversion, but it is a special case of the more general perverted desire to throw their kinks into strangers' faces. This reminds me of several gay men I have known casually who liked to leave kinky porn lying around their homes. So I am visiting to review some HOA financial documents and there are pornographic DVD's on the living room floor. Or I'm visiting another home for some reason and extreme S&M bondage magazines are scattered on the coffee table. I suppose the men thought this was "empowering" but it persuaded me that they were somehow broken and best avoided.

pst314

All the way from sex shifting dragons to ... pastel challenged (?) urban sprites

That reminds me of an sf novel by gay NAMBLA member Samuel R. Delany which takes place on a planet inhabited by humans and dragon-like space aliens. In order to increase comity between the two species there is a program to facilitate brief anonymous sexual encounters between male humans and male dragons. I have been told that these places closely resemble the back rooms of gay bars and porno bookstores where some gay men troll for quick sex, places that Delany used to frequent daily. "Tell us you checked yourself out of the psychiatric hospital too soon, without telling us you checked yourself out too soon."

"Do the French still routinely kiss each other on the cheek when they meet?"

As of 2011, yes. Emphatically yes. And the women would *not* take no for an answer.

pst314

Women you were meeting for the first time? 😁

French friend I'm staying with, apogetically : "They don't do this in America."
Random Frenchwoman I had just met : "Yeah, well, he's in France now."

pst314

Don't let anyone tell you otherwise: Every kiss is a French kiss.

pst314

One of my perennial complaints: "It reeks of excess and over-the-top spectacle."

ccscientist

"excess and over-the-top": in the Transformers movies, they make the cgi of the robots impossible to focus on. The parts keep moving and changing, perhaps so you can't notice flaws or perhaps incompetence.
I love the new proposed reparations bill in CA. Who is black? Can any black person move there and get free goodies? What about blacks whose ancestors owned slaves? And never mind the cost. clown show with our money

Some men just don't pick up on flirting signals...

But thanks for helping me appreciate that at least with my HOA board I only have to deal with stupid people. Of course a couple are incredibly stupid. I don't know...maybe we could consider a trade?

LW

I read somewhere that the American population with the highest percentage of slaver ancestry is the black population.

Princess Cutekitten

In reading about the antics of SFWA, nowhere do I see the slightest hint that the organization exists to serve people in the business of writing science fiction. It seems to be more of a social club whose members have broken into factions. Which for all I know is what it was founded as and intended to be, but what about the business side? Maybe Larry Correia can start a trade association for science-fiction writers.

Steve E

I read somewhere that the American population with the highest percentage of slaver ancestry is the black population.

Indigenous people were right up there as well. They were equal opportunity slavers. They enslaved other indigenous peoples and they owned African slaves. The practice predated contact with the white man, but many of today's historical apologists would have you believe that what went before wasn't "real" slavery. They'll tell you that the white man taught them real slavery. Uh huh. Noble savages indeed.

LW

Enslavement of Africans by Europeans is the only enslavement for which anyone need feel any guilt. Everyone knows that.

Steve E

Enslavement of Africans by Europeans is the only enslavement for which anyone need feel any guilt.

The FIRST person to ever 'own a slave' was a black man named Anthony Johnson, who came to America from Angola as an indentured servant. When he served his time and was released, he became wealthy and had his own indentured servants but didn't want to let them go when that servitude expired, he sued in court to "own" a black man named John Casor, when Casor left him and was hired by a white man.

pst314

Some men just don't pick up on flirting signals...

Heh. I suppose it’s not as annoying as dropping his pants like a San Franciscan.

Although in both cases there were woman visitors too.

pst314

They'll tell you that the white man taught them real slavery.

And then there’s the highly intellectual black writer who assured me that all those reports from European explorers of cannibalism and human sacrifice among the natives were racist lies or else hoaxes told by natives to excite explorers eager to find such things: “oh, we don’t do that stuff but the people in the next valley do it all the time.” He made no attempt to even bother to explain away the first hand reports and actual substance of what explorers thought and expected, but instead shamelessly made up lies because he hated that any dark skinned people might have done such things.

LW

he hated that any dark skinned people might have done such things.

Well, you have to understand that only Europeans are capable of evil. Everyone else lived idyllic lives of milk and honey until the evil Europeans turned up and forced non-white humans (and all other mammals and most other vertebrates) to divide into male and female instead of choosing their gender merely by wishing to. This terrible imposition on the mammalian world caused some mammals to become carnivorous and even taught the concepts of violence and property to non-white humans. So obviously no dark-skinned people could have engaged in cannibalism or human sacrifice.

It's really quite straightforward.

David

They don’t even pretend it’s not grooming anymore.

Let me get this straight, as it were. Small children should be exposed to “adult content” and “public nudity and kink” – meaning transvestites, autogynephiles, and ageing, unloved fetishists flashing their cock rings - because these things are “a celebration of our culture.” And not wanting your small children exposed to these things is somehow damning evidence of hating gay people.

Oh really now.

I’m tempted to ask why a publication called Fatherly couldn’t find an actual father to give his views on the subject.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

I’m tempted to ask why a publication called Fatherly couldn’t find an actual father to give his views on the subject.

I too was puzzled, but I found "Heather received a master’s degree in journalism from UC Berkeley and a PhD in English from Rutgers University, where she studied race in American culture", and who are we to argue with credentials like that? Besides, she might identify as a father, and if she does, she is a father, and only a rabid transphobe would say other wise.

Meanwhile in Minnesota, culture will be celebrated as this charming fellow is being paid by the city emcee this festival.

Julie Redpath, an ECM Pride organizer, issued a statement saying after learning of the concerns, “Last year, Martina Marraccino emceed their event to rave reviews. He was delightful, was so well received, and did such a professional job that we invited him back again this year.”

Delightful - bring the whole family!

David

I too was puzzled, but I found “Heather received a master’s degree in journalism from UC Berkeley and a PhD in English from Rutgers University, where she studied race in American culture”, and who are we to argue with credentials like that?

Evidently, all those years of expensive education have done wonders for her thinking.

And it seems to me that if your “culture” entails parading about in assless chaps and waving your dick around in front of small children, and thinking that such behaviour is both affirming and totes awesome, a high point of human achievement, then your culture ain’t all that.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

And it seems to me that if your “culture” entails parading about in assless chaps...

The other puzzlement is how and/or why as of late "pride" almost exclusively means "kink and drag".

Captain Nemo

They don’t even pretend it’s not grooming anymore.

I've said it once, and I'll say it again - I really wish today's activist gay left could stop trying so hard to prove the anti-gay bigots of fifty years ago absolutely right.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

In other news, a hearty "yaaaaaaas queen!" to these two lovely lady cyclists.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

This just in, a new meaning to autoeroticism

asiaseen

why as of late "pride" almost exclusively means "kink and drag".

The aim is financial - to shock the relevant authoroties in to banning an event and thereby laying themselves open to a discrimination lawsuit with a potential payout of lots of $$. The reward/risk ratio is big because, if they lose, quite simply they have no assets to pay the costs. Blame the lawyers.

WTP

Blame the lawyers.

This. Another thing I will say repeatedly, likely to my last dying breath...the #&@$$# lawyers are screwing this country big time. Them, along with the insurance companies which have now become their own racket. They have traditionally been seen as opposed to lawyers but are now in a symbiotic relationship.

People, you are getting screwed in ways that you never see. It happens quite regularly. I am seeing a prime example of it, yet again, in our HOA. Frivolous BS lawsuit based on ZERO hard evidence that hasn't even gone to court, likely (hopefully...my last tiny thread of faith) will get thrown out as farce, is costing our community $30K in additional cost. This is on top of our annual, budgeted insurance cost of $7400 (up from $6700 last year). Every home in our community is going to have to shell out an extra $110, this after the HOA absorbs some of that cost out of reserves. That is IF we do a special assessment, which comes with its own legalistic complications. Thus some board members want to just take the whole sum out of reserves so "no one will have to know".

Scum. The legal profession in this country is vile scum. Pretending otherwise is whistling past the graveyard.

pst314

The legal profession in this country is vile scum.

"Nobody understands the law but the lawyers, and they don't know right from wrong."
--Jerry Pournelle, I think

I think this is an inherent human tendency, to think of legality as defining morality: If it's legal then it is right. This is, of course, on top of the fact that there have always been amoral scum ready to seize any chance to steal or cause harm. Compounding the problem, there has been a modern shift to defining morality in political terms, so that for example it is wrong for a white male to disagree with a Person of Diversity but right for a Person of Diversity to cause physical harm to a white man.

pst314

In Norway you might be sentenced to three years in prison for publicly saying that trans men are not women and cannot be lesbians.

Now I'm even more confused. His link is to an article about 100 trans sex offenders and the first offender uses three aliases including David Thompson. So I don't get the second post. I had dental surgery and am under the influence of Tylenol 3s. Perhaps that explains it. I don't see any drawings of "busty girls in skimpy clothing."

pst314

now I'm even more confused.

We aim to please. But if you came here for something other than confusion look at the sign on the wall: "No refund, credit note only."

His link is to an article about 100 trans sex offenders...

The 100 trans sex offenders link is not originally his link, but one of the links in David's original post. ("That’s a lot of transgender paedophilia.")

I don't see any drawings of "busty girls in skimpy clothing."

His site (click on his name) is the one I was referring to.

I had dental surgery and am under the influence of Tylenol 3s.

I hope the Tylenol is making you feel happy, although I hear that if the dose is properly matched to the pain then this does not happen. Jokes aside, my sympathies and hope you are back to normal soon.
