Blog Rules

An orderly blog needs blog rules.  There can be no order without rules.  Without rules there is chaos. This is a moderated blog. At the present time, individual blog entries are open to comment for no longer than 30 days, each, and are closed to comments after that interval.  The interval may be expanded indefinitely if I manage to get the problem of spammer-subscriptions under control.  For now, that problem is the overwhelmingly primary reason dads & things is a moderated blog.  Some spam gets through spam detection, I still receive close to 100 spammer subscription a day, and I just finished deleting 32,000 of them.  Moderation permits me to stay on … Continue reading

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor, …Bureaucrat, Bureaucracies are forever

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor, Rich Man, Poor Man, Beggar Man, Thief, Doctor, Lawyer, Merchant, Chief (ahem, that is, bureaucrat).  It is not so much the politicians who drive the evolution towards censorship and control by the state. The bureaucrats are the main movers of it. The politicians come and go. Bureaucracies are forever. Bureaucracies have their own agendas, powerful ones, all-pervasive and intrepid. They are the ones who make the necessary things (and many others besides) happen. Politicians have some influence. Most of them just come along for the ride. The bureaucrats are far more numerous and have much more power that is always being used. The bureaucracy is the wagon … Continue reading

Actual Average Lifespans Decline — US Women Lose Big

» Actual Average Lifespans Decline — U.S. Women Lose Big « That should have been in the headlines of the front pages for years.  It wasn’t.  International Women’s Day is not over. It would be over now, largely gone from our minds, if it weren’t for the news.  The news during the past few days mentioned much about discrimination against women, about an escalating epidemic of sexual harassment, about the persistent pay gap (entirely mythical, when examined objectively, which is of course never mentioned) that puts women at a disadvantage, and many more things like that which feminists had decided years ago needed to be eradicated to make women more … Continue reading

Gender Re-education creates Gender-Newspeak fluency

…. previous page Part of the multi-part series: ‘Single-Gender Classes’ Index and preamble for series Gender re-education — If you don’t get it (the gender Newspeak), then you should go to school and take remedial classes, which may permit you to appreciate the difficulties facing new immigrants who try to learn English and a vocabulary they never heard of, let alone imagined, such as in this: No doubt, SJWs are correct (they must be, how else could we rationalize the validity of political correctness), and children are resilient.  Children will be better able to cope with the requirements of the Newspeak than non-English-speaking new immigrants are.  Children will be growing … Continue reading

Seven Genders – Why not more?

…. previous page Part of the multi-part series: ‘Single-Gender Classes’ Index and preamble for series Seven genders – why stop there? There were of course people, well-endowed with common sense, who argued against letting anyone get a foot into the door of the time-honoured discussion of Nature vs. Nurture and pointed out that, if Nature no longer matters; Gender is a very flexible thing, “a construct”; The number of sexual orientations need not be limited by choice as much as by human imagination (and who knows where the limits of that may be); Gender need not to be cast in stone, and the ever-changing vagaries of human desires – if … Continue reading

Gender Under Re-Construction – Social Justice Warriors at Work

…. previous page Part of the multi-part series: ‘Single-Gender Classes’ Index and preamble for series Gender under re-construction: Social justice warriors (SJWs) had been fighting for a long time to have co-ed classes for both sexes, but, once they had achieved to make them a reality, that was just a first step.  They also demanded that the term sex, to identify biological differences between males and females of the human species, was not longer desired.  They deemed that term to be sexist, discriminatory to the minuscule minorities of what not very long ago were five different genders (apparently to teach those a lesson who thought that there are only two sexes). … Continue reading

Single-gender classes

1st part of the multi-part series: ‘Single-Gender Classes’ Index Introduction Gender Under Re-Construction – Social Justice Warriors at Work Seven genders – Why not more? Gender Re-education creates fluency in Gender-Newspeak Next to come: The unacceptable solution – Return to simplicity and Single-sex Classes for Two Sexes Once upon a time, single-gender classes were thought to be important.  Once-upon a time they were the rule, when they were called boys-classes or -schools, and girls-classes or -schools, when things were still simple and there were thought (or claimed) to be only two sexes, but that changed. Single-sex classes (as they were at times called) were out, and co-ed classes were in.  Today, the … Continue reading

Parkinson’s Law — Its various forms make society creak

Parkinson’s Law (a.k.a. Parkinsons Law), and some of it variations and roles in the context of the gradual decline of the efficiency and effective operations of governments, were described by C. Northcote Parkinson (* 30 July 1909 – † 9 March 1993), when he presented his first law (and some others that are derived from or relate to it), “Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.” That was in a 1955 essay published in The Economist, an essay which is accessible online.  Here is the beginning of it (click on the image for the rest): That essay is short, but – because it became very … Continue reading

FB censorship under pretense of unsolicited help

FB censorship in the guise of help no one asked for is still censorship.  FB may claim it is not, but it is one of the worst sort.  It is insidious.  FB censorship and censorship by Google, so as to direct and control what information we should get access to and even what we are to think or be concerned about,  is a reality that should be of great concern to lovers of freedom of expression and of freedom of choice.  There are growing concerns about that. Decades, about 80 years ago, prescient, those concerns were expressed in this: “In the end the Party would announce that two and two … Continue reading
