Quick Takes – Make Believe: LGBTQ&c. Acronyms; Sexual Dimorphism; Safe Spaces

     Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.

     The focus this time: Believe the unreal, deny the real, and then hide when reality doesn’t give a f**k.

     First, a little bit of “Land of Make Believe” mood music:

     Carrying on…

     Just when you thought they had run out of new sexualities to make heterosexuality seem like nothing special or even abnormal… they go ahead and add “OS” to the list:

“Recently, we all learned about new sexual identities like ‘two spirit’ and ‘questioning’ when a teacher’s group in Canada reeducated us about the latest victim groups that need attention. Right on cue, a new sexual orientation has leapt onto the scene. ‘Objectum sexual’ describes people who are sexually attracted to inanimate objects like cars or statues. Amanda Liberty is one such person whose attraction for hanging chandeliers cannot be suppressed.”

     Apparently the rather obvious fact that human beings are a sexually dimorphic species is now considered is a social construct derived from… race.

“A Rutgers University women’s and gender studies professor thinks she has the answer to why white women seemingly voted against their interests in the 2016 presidential and last month’s Alabama US Senate elections.

“‘Simply put,’ Kyla Schuller writes in a guest post for the Duke University Press blog, ‘sex difference is itself a racial structure.’

“The professor, whose research interests include feminist science studies, biopolitics, and Transnational American Studies, claims that ‘sexual difference, as a concept, emerged as a function of race.’ Her new book, The Biopolitics of Feeling, ‘zeroes in on this generally overlooked phenomenon.’

“Indeed. Weird how so many think of sexual difference in terms of biology.”

     What happens when reality collides with this silliness?

     Run to your “safe space“, of course!

“Santa Monica College will move forward with a plan to transform a popular computer lab into a social justice center despite a petition signed by hundreds of students.

“According to The Stringer, the proposal to construct the Social Justice and Gender Equity Center was spearheaded by Dr. Nancy Grass, Dean of Student Life, and would cost a total of $500,000”
