A recent article in the Wall Street Journal refreshingly challenges the conventional wisdom that men and women are exactly equal, only to assert that female rule is what’s in store for us and it’s something to look forward to. Groan.
Research has found that women are superior to men in most ways that will count in the future
I recognize that this woman is not seriously that retarded, that she is rhetorically signalling being totally above the brutal and backward concept of nationalism. It’s still unbelievably triggering. If there is one thing that brings my piss to a boil, it’s when people (usually women) substitute snark for stupidity when asserting their enlightened opinion. There are less obtuse methods for sticking your head up your ass.
Not gonna lie, I was more confused than triggered at this picture. Hell, I’m still bewildered. It’s like viewing one of those silly modern “art” exhibits, except this one breathes and has a profile on grindr.
The University of Michigan is doing their part to help end offensive speech. In a new $16k program they have dubbed the “Inclusive Language Campaign,” the university has effectively banned a number of common words and phrases. They believe that this prohibition will be just what the doctor ordered, and surely will prevent sensitive individuals from having their dainty feelings bruised by the unwashed masses.
We can do better than this. Obviously, the university isn’t going far enough. Being the caring and politically correct humanist that I am, I have come up with a short list of additional words and phrases that must be banned from our society immediately in order for us all to avoid any uncomfortable realities.
Here at TRS, we are always scanning the rhetorical horizons in an effort to keep America safe and prosperous. Language holds the keys to the kingdom, and how we define words often dictates our reactions. This is the primary reason that political correctness is a pox upon our house. Often, this redefining is offensive to the sensibilities of most citizens, and serves only to further the “progressive” ideas of small, deviant sections of the populace.
Away from the prying eyes of America, liberal academia has been busy scheming over one such subversion: the legitimization of pedophilia.
At TRS we have noted a growing trend among leftists to place social status above intellectual consistency. When narrative-challenging events like yesterday’s shooting at leftist magazine Charlie Hebdo occur, what typically happens is liberals will coalesce around the easiest and safest narrative available. In this case it took the form of projecting fears over possible Islamophobic backlash. “Islamophobia” being defined as “any perspective that could possibly make me question what made such a tragedy possible in the first place (protip: look in the fucking mirror).”
While many granola-eaters are content with taking the easy out in political discourse, some liberals feel a need to signal higher status than the crowd. Providing us with a perfect example of such behavior is one Jacob Canfield, what appears to be a white-presenting kebab, offering us an interesting (read: retarded) take on the Charlie Hebdo shooting Wednesday (boldface added for emphasis):
When faced with a terrorist attack against a satirical newspaper, the appropriate response seems obvious. Don’t let the victims be silenced…
In this case, it is the wrong response.
Here’s what’s difficult to parse in the face of tragedy: yes, Charlie Hebdo is a French satirical newspaper. Its staff is white. Its cartoons often represent a certain, virulently racist brand of French xenophobia. While they generously claim to ‘attack everyone equally,’ the cartoons they publish are intentionally anti-Islam, and frequently sexist and homophobic.
The victims of the shooting should be silenced. Because they’re white and racist. Ouch, I cut myself on all of this edge.
It’s that time of year again. The time when liberals collectively remind us with tweets from their iPhones that they are above petty consumerism and that employing a mere 6,000 out of 2.2 million workers at minimum wage (a policy which they’re phasing out) is tantamount to slavery. Many of them cheered when the UFCW and AFL-CIO operated OUR Wal-Mart union announced plans to strike at every one of Wal-Mart’s 1600 locations (there were no strikers at either of mine). The #RaiseTheWage and #FightFor15 crowds are calling this year’s strikes “the most successful ever”.
So how many went on strike? According to the OUR Walmart union approximately 1,500 workers nationwide went on strike for Black Friday.
That’s 0.006% of their retail associates. No, that’s not a typo. Zero point zero zero six percent. Less than one per store.
But only in Western nations and due to their inherent egalitarian natures. Is it not the epitome of irony that the only societies where feminism can persist are the very ones that do not need it? Perhaps, but I believe that we can go deeper and find an even more biting irony.
