The Wiltshire Police’s War on Doubleplusungood Utterances

     Ignoring all the rape, murder, arson, and rape, the Wiltshire Police, over in jolly old England, have decided that there is no more important crime to combat than… hunting down internet trolls and others who utter illegal “H8 speech”.

     After being rightly belittled, the thin-skinned minions of Ingsoc, decided to double down and threaten arrests for “discriminatory remarks”:

Quick Takes – Sexist Penitents; Sexist Athletes & Veterans; Sexist Robots

     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: Long live the Robo-Patriarchy™!!1!

     First, a little mood music:

     Carrying on…

     To the Left, being a male is a sin for which all men must seek repentance… literally.

“Adding to the proof that the left is basically a fundamentalist cult, the University of Regina has unironically set up a confessional booth so that men can confess to the sin of being … well … men. Masked as an initiative to combat sexual harassment, the university’s Man Up Against Violence program is a function of identity politics designed to emasculate men. The first step in that emasculation is requiring men to seek forgiveness for the sin of being a man.

“…

” The confessional booth at the University of Regina is just the next step in the evolution of the left into a full-fledged religious cult. Part of that next step involves the continued emasculation of men. Sadly, many men are voluntarily destroying their masculinity by lining up to drink the leftist Kool-Aid.”

The Othering of Cis-Normative Unpersons

     Once upon a time, boys’ restrooms/lockerrooms/showers/&c. were for actual biological boys and girls’ restrooms/lockerrooms/showers/&c. were for actual biological girls because society recognized that such distinctions existed and boys and girls might want privacy from each other in a potentially vulnerable environment.

     But those icky times are no longer here, as boys can use girls’ spaces and visa versa. No longer will these “trans-gendered kids” be “othered” or made “unpersons” because they set themselves up as being different. So, no more “othering” because that “othering” and making those “others” “unpersons” is bad, right?

     Wrong.

     Girls who are afraid of being vulnerable and even naked in front of boys are now to be “othered” and treated, via school policy, as “unpersons”:

“Newly-approved guidelines in Minnesota direct K-12 public school officials to ‘segregate’ students uncomfortable with using transgender bathrooms and locker rooms, all in the name of inclusivity, of course.

“With the approval of a new gender toolkit from a Minnesota Department of Education advisory council on Wednesday, all publicly-funded schools (including charter schools) within the state now have detailed instructions addressing the inclusion and protection of ‘gender nonconforming’ and trans students.

“But not all students are being protected: school officials are also told to ‘segregate’ any student hesitant about the new trans rules, which would potentially include female students changing side-by-side with male students in a locker room.”

Venezuela’s Not-So-Cold Civil War Grows Hotter

     Venezuela, the land of rationed toothpaste, is seeing an actual civil war with opposing side claiming legitimacy, and growing increasingly violent.

     Venezuela’s Congress has declared Maduro’s hand-picked lackey’s on Venezuela’s Supreme Court to be illegitimate and appointed their own new Supreme Court. Maduro has in turn threatened to arrest the Congress’ appointments. Each side is claiming to be the only legitimate power, and both are claiming popular mandate, though the Congress was elected more recently than Maduro. Each side is also setting up their own referenda. The Congress’ support has shown massive support, while voters snub Maduro’s attempt to legitimize a constitutional super-body.

     That support has manifested in outright attacks on Venezuelan National Guardsmen, who have been stripped naked and beaten in revenge for earlier street violence by the Guardsmen. And now, opposition leaders are disappearing.

Faith & Gender

     Gender Identity, whether one believes one is a boy, a girl, or mayonnaise, is concomitantly considered both something that one defines themself by, with no objective basis but only one’s subjective opinion, but also an integral part of one’s being that defines who they know they are and that can not be changed (to the point of making such attempts illegal).

     There is a word for a belief that so thoroughly defines a person, both to themselves and to others, that lacks an objective or scientific description: Faith.

     Though there are differences, such as an inability to objectively even define the term “boy” vs. moral codes and holy tomes of religion, the similarities are manifest: Both involve knowing a transcendental and absolute truth; both define what a person believes they are and how they act and think; and both are now topics for which people will vehemently disagree.

     Yet we see these two faiths in conflict, with the privileged few being able to use their power to force their subjective reality of “gender”. Transgenderism under the law is not about civil rights, it is a holy war.

     If the political movement for transgenderism really is about the right to exist as one’s identified identity, and to live freely as such, then perhaps it should be accorded rights as a faith.

     Thus, I offer, in all musing, this compromise: Any rights and liberties afforded to either religion or to transgenderism shall apply equally to both. One can express their transgender identity/faith to the same extent and protect afforded to a religious faith; one will be protected from discrimination as transgender to the same extent as afforded to a religious faith; one’s transgender beliefs and identity will be protected to the same extent as afforded to a religious faith; one will not be required to bake a cake in celebration of either one; both shall stand in regards to the state as the other as regards its establishment as official government policy and practice.

Quick Takes – The New Education: Teacher Illiteracy; Picketer Slogans; Islamophobic Math

     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: The future is in the… worst of hands.

     First, a little mood music:

     Carrying on…

     At a very minimum, one would expect that regardless of a teachers ability to teach, they at least know the subject matter being taught, right?

     Well

“[New York] State education officials plan to scrap a literacy exam given to prospective teachers and allow certification for some applicants who fail a performance assessment test — moves that critics warned will weaken the pool of candidates.

“The state Board of Regents will likely vote early next week on whether to ax the Academic Literacy Skills Test, one of four exams that teacher wannabes have to pass for certification”

     But what will these teacher teach?

Columbia Smashes the Duo-Normative Diarchy

     Only after recently legalizing Same-Sex Marriages, Columbia has smashed the duo-normative oppression of the two-person family core unit (i.e. the “Diarchy“) and is now recognizing a three member “thruple” of three men:

“Three gay men say they have gained legal recognition as the first ‘polyamorous family’ in Colombia, where same-sex marriages were legalized last year.

“Actor Victor Hugo Prada and his two partners, sports instructor John Alejandro Rodriguez and journalist Manuel Jose Bermudez, have signed legal papers with a solicitor in the city of Medellin, establishing them as a family unit with inheritance rights.

“‘We wanted to validate our household… and our rights, because we had no solid legal basis establishing us as a family,’ said one of the men, Prada, in a video published by Colombian media on Monday.”

     Columbia isn’t even the first to recognize three member domestic family units, and it is doubtful that they’ll be the last. After all, as had been previously noted:

“Once the idea that one’s biological sex was irrelevant to marriage, did anyone really think that the number of people involved would remain so sacrosanct, particularly since polygamy has been widespread throughout human history while true same-sex marriage is virtually unknown?”
