I used to, also. I bought the Left’s argument that life without parole is a worse punishment than execution. But, as usual, they lied. They really didn’t want to lock them up forever, they wanted to let them go:

What pronoun does the "they" use to refer to theyselves? "We"?

According to me, anyone who demands special pronouns is at-least required to jump thru their own hoop & consistently refer to themselves soley using their own rules.
I haven't actually talked to them yet. It was a group activity, where we only did name introductions. They then had a breakdown about half an hour into the activity and left. Someone asked the instructor if they were okay during a break, and got corrected on their pronoun use and I happened to by nearby that I could overhear the conversation. I can probably get away with never having to talk or refer to them in any way. Although, I'm already using "they" here. Mostly because I'm unsure. I'd guess a male with long hair.

Anyone been watching Pennyworth?

It's a 1960s fever dream of London - purportedly giving backstory to the to the Wayne's reasonably well-known butler (though I suppose technically he could be considered more of a valet).

A reasonably well done Micheal Caine impression at any rate.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYc3LXqEyhg


It seems to take place in one of those thin places where counter-factuals are leaking in. For example - I was not previously aware of live televised public executions occurring in the UK in the 1960s. But then again 'The Avengers' and 'The Prisoner' did set precedent for bringing some of the eccentricities of British culture to TV.

I agree. On the other side, conservatives, or at least conservative intellectuals, tend to take the complementary view that they are the rearguard in a war they're destined to lose, as in William F Buckley's famous declaration that the role of a conservative is to "stand athwart history, yelling stop". I think one reason Trump is so popular among the GOP rank and file is that, instead of being gloomily defensive temperamentally, he takes it to the other side.

I think the "climate crisis" people are mistaking the purpose of protests. In a democracy it is a way to raise awareness of an issue among voters so that the change can come through the ballot box. It seems that some of these people think the purpose of protest is to bypass democracy and get their agenda implemented directly. Even if they are right about what needs to be done, a democracy does not work that way.

Youth see things in black and white. Autistic youth even more so.

Good on her. I wouldn't have had that gumption or composure at that age.
In a recent speech, she states climate change will "most likely lead to the end of civilization as we know it." Granted, "as we know it" is the weasliest of weasel words, but this is basically in the same ball park as "the world is going to end", another weasel phrase.

Her shtick is recounting how she was taught climate change is an existential crisis, but no one acts like this is the case, and this dooms her future. You are correct that autistes are particularly prone to see things in black and white, but an even more defining characteristic is that they have difficulty seeing beyond the literal, or that people frequently say things that are not literally what they actually believe. Yes, almost no one behaves like we're in the onset of an existential crisis even while, in certain sets, there's an almost religious zeal competition to describe the consequences of climate change as apocalyptically as possible. The obvious explanation is people say it, but don't actually believe it, and are using hyperbolic scare mongering for political purpose. But in her damaged brain, it must mean people are incredibly short sighted and stupid and need to be woken up.

I think you are also correct that neither her nor her parents had her rise in stature planned out. Rather climate activist PR thought she would be a useful propaganda tool. But if they want to make a mentally ill Swedish adolescent the face of climate change alarmism, more power to them.

Jeremiah Button’s jury trial in Portage County was just two weeks away when he disappeared in early 2016. Charged with first degree child sexual assault and possession of child pornography, Button had been out on a $25,000 cash bond for about a year and a half when he vanished.

That was when he built the bunker, he would later tell deputies with the Marathon County Sheriff’s Office. Carved into an embankment near the Ice Age Trail on state land in the township of Ringle and protected from sight by thickened underbrush that he himself had helped create, Button would escape detection from law enforcement for almost three and a half years until a concerned hunter called police last Friday, Aug. 9.

The Guardian Newspaper Has Lost Two Trans Employees Over Its Reporting On Trans Issues
“It suddenly became real,” one trans staff member told BuzzFeed News. “I’m entering this building with people who are denying my humanity.”

A transgender employee of The Guardian – which once called itself the “world’s leading liberal voice” – has resigned accusing the newspaper in an email to staff of being “an incredibly transphobic organisation”.

In a cutting resignation letter sent last month, the employee said the paper “fundamentally not only stands against my own values but also against what I am”. A second staff member resigned weeks later, also citing the “harm” they say the newspaper is doing to trans people.

Following the leak of the email to BuzzFeed News, the trans employee, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said she felt complicit in the newspaper’s "transphobic" reporting by continuing to work there, and revealed the damaging effect the Guardian’s coverage of transgender people has had on her wellbeing. This included fear of using the women’s toilet at work.

Such editorial lines, she said, are a “blind spot” for the largely progressive publication which last month published a long read criticising other news outlets for their stigmatizing coverage of refugees, another marginalised group.

The former employee also said colleagues had made transphobic remarks to her.

Her resignation marks a flashpoint in what multiple sources at the Guardian have described to BuzzFeed News as a deepening internal war over the rights of transgender people – and how the organisation reports on them. Staff members across several departments accused the paper of “institutional transphobia”, peddling transphobic tropes, and allowing a bitter schism to develop between pro- and anti-trans journalists.
Shortly after, during two separate incidents at informal drinks with colleagues, one member of staff who had previously been Victoria’s friend at work defended the article, she said, and began citing trans women in sports as a reason to attack trans rights. Another colleague, she said, “poked fun” at her, asked if she was trans, and told her, “If you went to prison I’m not sure which prison you should go to.”

The Graun has printed the odd article that defends the TERF POV, and even those bent over backwards and scattered the usual caveats to state that they are not opposed to trans rights, etc.

But, despite many more pro-trans, anti-TERF articles appearing in the Graun, the "world's leading liberal voice" is not "woke" enough for the crazies.

Hate to tell them "I told you so".

- Net legal bills needing to be covered: $27,797
"(We’ll be receiving another large bill next week for July. Yay us.)"
It's unclear if they paid for other legal bills with funds they raised in the past, but at least now, they are net deficit of nearly $28K, and they are expecting another bill to arrive shortly to add to that deficit.

The first part of the post outlines the finances of the conference. The TL;DR version: total conference cost estimated at a bit over $30K, but still short almost $11K.

In June the UK Advertising Standards Authority acquired the power to nix ads using depictions of gender "that are likely to cause harm, or serious or widespread offense."

https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/14/media/uk ... index.html

Claims were made that they would not be wielding the ban hammer with wild abandon:
Ads that show men or women carrying out tasks with which their genders are sometimes associated, such as women doing the shopping or men doing DIY tasks, will also be permitted.

VW tweeted this 20 second ad in December of 2018.



The tweet came out well before the new regulations came into force. Perhaps the video is still getting airplay in the UK or perhaps the terminally offended are just sanitizing history.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/14/media/uk ... index.html
"We acknowledged that becoming a parent was a life-changing experience that required significant adaptation, but taking care of children was a role that was stereotypically associated with women," the body added in its ruling.
Using that justification wouldn't any shot of a woman, sans man, caring for a child now be in the Bad Things category?

I believe you always did.

Hey, have you seen UnReal? It's a TV show about a reality TV show (basically, The Bachelor by another name.) A lot of the behind-the-scenes craziness my sister described from her Hollywood days, but I imagine very similar to the craziness you encounter. UnReal is funny and dark at the same time, plumbs the depths of bent human nature, and is infinitely engrossing.

Possibly. Just in case he is called upon to instruct a young girl.

Today I'm working for that company Ocasio chased out of New York. 3 hour break in the middle of my day.
They're promoting back-to-school stuff for college students.
When the event is over, all the whimsical decor merchandise will be donated to charity, after event staff picks it over.
I already scored... a sweet guitar!...


It's a small event, just #influencers. They get drinks, a gift bag, a performance by some Amazon Music chick-- if you like 2019-style music-- oh man do I have a big steaming homogenous glob of it, for you...


Also performing is an Instagram-famous comedienne. I didn't check out her stuff... but apparently there was a bit of a kerfuffle-- when the world discovered her mother is Pamela Geller. As-in the Draw Muhammed Day shoot-em-up lady! All I wanted to do this evening is get-home & rest my feet for 3 hours & play that new guitar... but if Pamela Geller was on the guest-list, I'd have been tempted to stick around for the show. I'm surprised the company AOC and Elizabeth Warren loves-to-hate... the one Bernie sez "doesn't a pay a NICKEL" in taxes... would hire Geller's daughter for their event. Kinda cool that they didn't censor-themselves from doing so.

Speaking of SJW outrage & guilt by association...there's a Soul Cycle across the street from the event. I like that protest. Now I have a righteous excuse to yell 'fuck you' at people wearing Soul Cycle leggings & t-shirts.

My boss on this job is a very normal girl from down south. She's actually pretty gutsy, but she's mainstream-normie.
She was overflowing with excitement about this Chris Cuomo FREDO thing. Boss isn't the type to rant at work about politics or news-outrage.

Maybe-- post-epstien?-- trollish internet political meme-nerdery has gone fully majority-mainstream?
