FB community standards vs moral traditions

The drive for re-education, for turning moral traditions topsy-turvy, by replacing them with FB community standards, is a convoluted road. The FB-reality is that the use of bad and inappropriate language of the gutter variety is good, while even to insist only slightly on maintaining established, more conservative traditions that society came to hold dear must must be regarded as being in bad taste, wherefore it is verboten.  Things become very difficult and confusing, when good becomes bad and bad becomes good, when it may be that either or both are verboten, especially when it appears that good things may at times be verboten, while bad things (things that were … Continue reading

Sniffing butts is impolite verboten

Sniffing butts is impolite, verboten.  Sniffing butts is a No-No.  I know that it is, because my parents and my oldest sister (17 years older than I) told me so, a long time ago, without any help or nudging from Facebook.  It was in 1939 when that happened.  Facebook had not yet come on the scene. It made its first appearance 65 years later, in 2004.   Humanity had managed fairly well until then to catch on to the rules of politeness and of political correctness, without Facebook’s help. Still, being blessed with an analytical mind and fairly early in my life, before the invasion of Poland by Hitler’s Armed Forces, the … Continue reading

The #MeToo phenomenon ran its course?

The #MeToo phenomenon ran its course?  Who knows, and, if so, what will take its place?  Its consequences will probably be with us for some time to come. On October 15, 2017, actress Alyssa Milano encouraged spreading the hashtag #MeToo, to attempt to draw attention to sexual assault and harassment.[10][21] Milano later acknowledged earlier use of the phrase by Burke.[18] —Wikipedia In 2006, Tarana Burke had tried to bring the phrase  “Me Too” to prominence.  Alyssa Milano succeeded in doing so.  Thanks to Twitter, her effort to popularize the hashtag struck a note.  The consequences were immediate and apparently will be with us for a while. Intentional or not, such is the power of effective propaganda, using … Continue reading

Islamic Rape of Europe : Hyperbole? Justified Claim?

Update 2018 11 29: Appended links to related interviews by Ezra Levant The Islamic Rape of Europe is an exaggeration, but it became a world-wide concern after numerous instances of sexual groping of women on New Years Eve in Cologne, Germany.  What is the truth?  Are the growing public concerns over increasing numbers of rapes and other violent crimes by immigrants in Europe justified?  Perhaps. No link was identified with that image. The claim that the image on the magazine cover is exploding across Europe is at best an exaggeration, if not outright hype.  If such an explosion were happening, we would most certainly notice it being mentioned in the … Continue reading

Domestic violence • Would you sign this contract ?

Domestic violence : Would you sign this contract to help to reduce domestic violence or even to find marital bliss? An employer can at any time dismiss an employee without justification and have that employee imprisoned if he objects too strongly to his dismissal. For example, if the employee raises his voice in anger he may be arrested for ‘violence’. In any event, an employer can dismiss an employee regardless of the circumstances, and at his sole discretion. He can fire him from his job whenever he wishes, no matter how long the employee has served with the company and even if the employee has done absolutely nothing wrong. Further, … Continue reading

‘Science 2.0’ weighs in — Alessandro Strumia’s reputation

Last updated 2018 10 11 ‘Science 2.0’ weighs in on the destruction of Alessandro Strumia’s character, motivations, reputation and career prospects. »Strumia’s slides contain a collection of half-baked claims, coming from his analysis of InSpire data from citations and authorship of articles in theoretical physics. I consider his talk offensive on many levels. It starts by casting the woman discrimination issue in scientific academia as a test of hypothesis of whether the “man-woman” symmetry is explicitly broken (i.e. there is no symmetry) or spontaneously broken (by a difference of treatment) – something that could even raise a smile in a geeky physicist; but the fun ends there. He uses all … Continue reading

Equality of Outcomes destroys Freedom

Update 2018 09 20 Efforts to bring about equality of outcomes destroy freedom, as explained in this: “A society that puts equality—in the sense of equality of outcome—ahead of freedom will end up with neither equality nor freedom. The use of force to achieve equality will destroy freedom, and the force, introduced for good purposes, will end up in the hands of people who use it to promote their own interests.” —Milton and Rose Friedman, in Free to Choose: A Personal Statement Take the example of article 15 of The Constitution of India.  It addresses the “Prohibition of discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth.”  Article … Continue reading

Family courts solve divorce applications backlog

Family Courts (they essentially give marching orders to Child Protective Services) – put in place to solve a growing divorce applications backlog – target men.  They also seriously hurt children. Family courts were to mitigate the divorce applications backlog in the regular court system (in the early 1960s, waiting periods for court hearings after divorce applications were three and more years – and rapidly growing longer). The growing divorce applications backlog was a consequence of the legalization of ‘no-fault’ divorce. In ‘no-fault’ divorce, the default position is nevertheless that the fault is placed on the shoulders of the men. All of that works exceedingly well, so that, if they cannot … Continue reading

Seven Genders – Why not more?

…. previous page Updated 2018 12 15: minor edits 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 no one knows where the limits of that may be); Gender need not to be cast in stone, and the ever-changing … Continue reading
