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 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 issue of co-ed classes progressed to the point where the term sex, to identify biological … 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

Second-wave Feminism and its Ideological Foundation

…. previous page Part of the series ‘Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering’Index and preamble for series Updated 2019 04 25, to add links to related articles, as well as a link to “Matriarchy in USSR”. Second-wave Feminism and its ideological foundation are firmly rooted in communism, in the dream to create Utopia, Paradise on Earth. Communism can be made impervious to all criticism, by giving it a name that makes it untouchable, say, Feminism.  Communism and any other ideology become intrepid, as soon as they assume the label or even only the appearance of being an aspect of feminism. The ideological foundation of Second-wave Feminism “Feminism, Socialism, and … Continue reading

Divorce causes population decline

…. previous page Part of the series ‘Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering’Index and preamble for series Population decline Women’s liberation triggered population decline, not immediately, but it not only intensified the demand for birth control (that is, the prevention of conception), it also intensified the demand for “birth control” by means of abortion.  The consequences of that are now becoming visible, because actions have consequences.  We are harvesting what the feminists and other liberals of the ’60s have sown. Any country that has total fertility rates (the number of children born to an average woman of fertile age) that are above replacement level, that is, they suffice to maintain the … Continue reading

Divorce causes escalating suicide rates

…. previous page Part of the series ‘Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering’Index and preamble for series Escalating suicide rates Divorce causes escalating suicide rates, primarily for men and to a far lesser extent for women.  It stands to reason that, if the suicide rates for the sexes were reversed, that the suicide rates of women would receive far greater attention than the far higher ones of men do now.  Yet, it can be argued that virtually all of society conspires to downplay and preferably ignore that men die through suicide in epidemic proportions, in very large numbers, in each passing year. There are reasons why men commit suicide at … Continue reading

Actual lifespans versus estimated life expectancies

This gallery contains 15 photos.

Updated 2018 02 19, to identify a serious error in a report published by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, a report on aspects of suicides in India. Updated 2019 05 19, to add links to related articles. Actual average lifespans in the United States began to decline in the year 2013 and were still falling in 2016.  Should one not have expected for that to have become front-page news in 2013 and to continue to  be front-page news?  Will President Trump help to make an improvement in that trend?  It is a worthwhile effort.  It seems to be far more valuable to improve the health of his nation … Continue reading
