MGTOW Life: The Wages of Sex Dolls

There’s a dustup happening on YouTube that’s on the level of Vox Day and Dalrock parting ways. I’ve mentioned Turd Flinging Monkey (TFM) on this blog several times and a longstanding ally of his is DDJ… Doomsday Jesus, not a promising handle but he’s proven himself solid gold. He’s the author of “The Feminist Lie”, required reading for the Manosphere, and his paralegal work on behalf on men wronged by the frivorce-industrial complex has prevented more suicides and broken families than all the world’s hotlines combined. His YouTube channel is Misandry Today.

Among his concerns is TFM falling from a MGTOW to an Incel mental state. He credits TFM’s sex doll Celestina with that deterioration. It happened so gradually that I myself didn’t notice despite personally disapproving of the Sex Doll Path but the case DDJ makes is convincing and well worth analyzing.

A brief background: TFM was one of the Manosphere’s first adopters of sex dolls. Also the first to run (extensive) advertising for a sex doll manufacturer. He eventually:

1. Named it Celestina.

2. Realized his “times spent” with Celestina were creating an emotional bond. He shrugged and let it happen.

3. Made a separate YouTube channel for Celestina. At the time, TFM was getting many strikes on his main channel so making a backup channel was sensible.

4. Made an Instagram account for Celestina. I remember rolling my eyes at his pimping a robot. Hello, Blade Runner!

5. Regulars at his TFM shows could pay a small fee to have Celestina interrupt the show with a brief message, on topic or not. TFM always stopped the show to listen and respond. It was annoying as hell, I hate skewball interruptions, but it didn’t click with me that TFM might have been doing it to give Celestina a personality by proxy. I thought it was just a fundraising gimmick.

6. Discovered an AI program that could provide a casual conversation. TFM got into the habit of calling the AI program on his smartphone and having “conversations” with Celestina. Red flag time but I apparently didn’t know the half of it.

Below is the video of DDJ staging an intervention for TFM followed by a transcription of the relevant portion.

Hey, everybody, I just wanted to say right away this video is in no way meant to disparage anyone in either the MGTOW community or the Incel community with one exception, which will be described later on in the video because frankly, unethical people in general don’t deserve respect.

That’s how DDJ rolls, arrow straight and brass tacks. Mister Exception won’t concern us today.

Now, let’s start with the differences between red pill and blue pill. The red pill and its opposite the blue pill are a popular cultural meme metaphor representing the choice between the red pill knowledge freedom, uncertainty and the brutal truths of reality. Now, the blue pill is security, happiness, beauty and the blissful ignorance of illusion. So really, the red pill is the brutal, often bitter truth whereas the blue pill is the comfortable lie.

Okay. The Red Pill is unpopular for the same reason Christianity is unpopular: people need the truth but they don’t want it, for reasons both sensible and absurd.

Now, let’s talk about the differences between Incels and MGTOW or men going their own way. Incel is a person who is not sexually active despite desiring to be and sometimes, the Incel is a member of a mostly online subculture typically of misogynistic straight men who define themselves by being unable to find a sexual relationship despite desiring one. On the other hand, MGTOW, men going their own way is a way of life which refuses to defer to women in defining the worth of men. Instead it focuses on positive male aspects inviting men to go their own way in life… the concise definition of men going their own way.

So, the main difference is that Incels desperately want sexual intercourse with a woman and are frustrated they can’t whereas a MGTOW man never defines his worth by a female’s measure. That said, another important point to make is that Incels often become so frustrated by their inability to be sexually active with a woman that they become so hateful that they no longer want a woman’s companionship and want women to be their slaves.

It’s MGTOWs who reach the point of no longer wanting a woman’s companionship. Incel’s very definition is “involuntary celibate”. If you don’t want it anymore then your celibacy is now voluntary, a healthy improvement. What happens, then, when Incels use sex dolls in the place of women? Is that MGTOW or white knight? No easy answer.

Now, why is this important? It’s because when I first joined TFM on the TFM show and for at least six months thereafter, TFM’s position was pretty much the same as what I just read. In fact, he used to call out Incels for focusing their life around women rather than living for themselves. Unfortunately, at some point TFM changed. Instead of being the voice of MGTOW wisdom and male mentorship, he morphed into the Incel Whisperer.

What do I mean by that? I mean that he changed gears and started saying that Incels were MGTOW even though, to use TFM’s own words, the verifiable facts and the observable reality clearly demonstrate that Incels were not MGTOW. Now, I understand his point. He wants to help men, even Incel men, and this is commendable. However, Incels will stay blue pilled until they start living for themselves, free from female validation rather than continuing to desperately whine about not being able to get laid.

TFM’s advice was always “just get a doll”. Is a man still Incel if he’s no longer celibate thanks to regular use of a sex toy that he treats as a person?

Today, TFM has a single prescription for every problem in the world. Do you have diarrhea? Are you an Incel who can’t get laid? Do you refuse to stay in shape at a healthy weight because you liked processed high-calorie food? Well, there’s a solution for all of that and more! According to TFM, just take women’s rights away and your diarrhea will stop, all your male insecurities will magically go away!

I’ve noticed this about TFM also. It would have been hard not to. He regularly calls for “Take womens’ rights away”, “repeal the 19th Amendment” and similar demands for women to no longer control society, to prevent society’s collapse. While I agree with the mechanic of ending female suffrage, I have an entirely different motivation. I believe God created woman to be the servant of man. Forcing woman back into that service is a kindness. It’s an end to a powerful temptation and I honestly wish women well when I seek to take their vote away.

Simultaneous with that, men need to not grow bitter against women even though I sympathize. TFM using a sex doll appears to fit that bitterness against women. He isn’t letting go of female validation, he’s using a substitute path to female validation.

Let me explain why this at best is a blue pill Incel’s dream. Cucked men put women into power. What does this mean? it means that men will not vote to take women’s voting rights away or any other rights for that matter because most men cuck to women. TFM understands this. Now, he’s been asked many times how to take women’s rights away and he always responds with something about how do the jihadis do it? Well, let me answer that they do it by physical force, kidnapping, violence and intimate assault.

Which is why Islam is peak feminism, not peak patriarchy. Women enjoy the violence, the cruel exploitation by brutal men, being harem slaves and especially the polygamy. But rewarding brutality and winner-take-all has proven to be a horrible way to make a civilization worth living in. The patriarchal ideal is a principled, self-controlled, one-wife man who is concerned for those who depend upon him, from livestock to family.

TFM predicting Islam is our future if we don’t control our women as they do is consistent with DDJ’s words.

What TFM is saying is very passive-aggressive. I might add, whether he realizes it or not is that to take women’s rights away men need to physically force women into slavery… which by the way, is exactly what Incels have advocated for for years now. To TFM’s credit he admits that this is not a MGTOW concept or philosophy and he’s absolutely correct but here’s the rub: not only is this not a MGTOW concept it’s not even red pilled. It’s an insult; in fact, he’s calling for a gender war whether he realizes it or not and consequently the Incels love it.

The TFM I once knew, the man who I will always deeply admire and consider my friend would tell men to walk away from any blue pill idiot who told anyone to sacrifice their lives for sexual access to women, whether through marriage or attempts to enslave women by taking their rights away.

Taking women’s rights away is, in reality, seeking female validation through force.

Well said, in the absence of Christianity. But then there’s nowhere to go. Allow women to rule? Do not allow? Part of what I omitted is DDJ advocating for equating social authority with social responsibility but that fails on several levels, primarily that men and women are different. Even when you find a woman who is able to perform tasks as well as a man, she is still female and not male. Her brain is different, her body is different. This is why all those career wimminz end up as alcoholic herpes harpies. Give a man money and opportunities from an early age, along with all the mentoring he could possibly want, and he’ll enjoy his career immensely. But do the same for a woman and more likely than not, she’ll be too bitter over the family she never had to appreciate being a titan of industry.

Christianity is the only way out of the devil’s lies. Women belong in this sphere, men in that sphere, with these obligations towards each other. It’s not enough to fix one aspect of the problem such as revoking female citizenship. The shape of society generally must conform to the Creator’s ideal and that’s the point at which TFM, DDJ and all other atheists fail. Life isn’t about selecting outcomes. It’s about becoming a certain kind of person.

I find myself agreeing with DDJ that TFM has developed an Incel’s attitude towards women. Merely revoking womens’ suffrage does no good if manginas still get to vote. Places in authority must be given, gratis, to unsexy and independent men. That will be a paradigm shift, not a legislative correction.

TFM needs help but honestly, I’m not sure if he’s strong enough to accept it. Let’s talk about cars, trucks, boats and guns, in other words, material possessions. When you buy a car that you like, you take care of it. When you buy a boat, you name it. When you buy a gun, you customize it, you clean it. No matter what you own, you use it and if you care about it then you spend time and money maintaining it and upgrading it. If you keep the particular possession long enough then you develop memories and nostalgia that is associated with it.

Yep. I cried when I traded in my first car. It had been my only constant companion during the formative years of young adulthood. But it was only a car.

Why is this important? It’s because of Celestina, TFM’s doll. Now, I completely and unabashedly support [sex doll makers] but they sell dolls. Inanimate objects, not relationships. These dolls are tools of adult gratification. They aren’t people even though they look like them yet with TFM’s doll Celestina, he attempts to have an emotional relationship with it like humans do with each other. He’s even gone so far as to get an AI app for it so he could pretend he’s talking to his girlfriend who is an inanimate object. This is not a joke, this is a real thing.

TFM has admitted this and talked about it in great detail over many videos and livestreams. Not only has he created a YouTube channel for his doll where he gets her to pretend she’s talking, she has an Instagram. It’s so bad that when I had to move on from co-hosting the TFM show and the 4/20 show due to scheduling issues, TFM still considered his doll as his other co-host. He even publicly says he feels protective of his doll in the same way mainstream men are protective of women and if that wasn’t enough, TFM has become socially isolated.

In his response, TFM said he isn’t socially isolated so much as not being able to be himself in public. I sympathize with that isolation as a Commiefornian but don’t see how infatuation with a sex doll could cause it. Improvising ways to have conversations with a sex doll indicates that social isolation is preexisting.

A related issue DDJ raised is TFM’s support for a kiddie-porn-anime convention. TFM sees it as freedom of speech whereas DDJ is concerned it meets the legal definitions of child porn despite the characters being fictitious. Acceptance of one form of sexual immorality inevitably leads other forms, eventually resulting in the very sexual destruction of society that MGTOWs rail against. (Trust a Californian on this.) This is an example of how dangerously blind TFM’s sex doll habit has made him to the concept of healthy human sexuality.

I don’t believe TFM’s sex doll habit made him contemptuous of women. However, I do believe that TFM embracing this alternative sexuality has ruined his moral compass and possibly damaged his ability to see reality correctly. His mind acknowledges Celestina isn’t real but his heart appears desperate to believe she is, hence his efforts to give her a personality and social life by proxy.

TFM is pedestalizing his sex doll. This would categorize him as a Mens’ Rights Activist not an Incel, because he’s trying to make a better world for his love.

Sex dolls are not the answer to male sexual needs. But it was a very interesting experiment to watch. The wages of sex dolls are emotional investment in the gynocracy.

Vlog comments aren’t promising:

Turd Flinging Monkey:

I’m going to give you a chance to delete this video and apologize before I embarrass you.

Misandry Today:

I guess I was wrong about our friendship. I’m not gonna self censor to appease you. Well I guess I was right… the relationship ends when the investment stops… not when the people part ways. What you fail to understand is I don’t care about whatever you do to lash out MGTOW are immune to shaming… you should know this. I said my piece… and your response tells me its time to stop trying to get you to see sense.

UPDATE

I held off a day on posting to hear TFM’s response vlog, which he made. They’ve parted ways. TFM’s key comment was at the 10:30 mark for those caring to look it up, when he comments that it does no good to go MGTOW if society still collapses, and so he’s reaching for enduring solutions. That is a fool’s errand. MGTOW is only a reaction; society has already abandoned us men. The only enduring solution is for society’s leaders to accept us back. There is nothing we can do to force that acceptance other than, well, force. Which is the Incel path outlined above by DDJ. “I want sex, I won’t be given sex, how can I take sex for myself?”

Men don’t need society. Men built every one and if the current one dies then we’ll build the next. We didn’t choose to destroy this current society, we chose to call this society’s bluff.

TFM has backed down from calling that bluff… for love of his sex doll? If it’s love hormones that drive men to feminize society then acquiring those love hormones by artificial means would be as damaging. Love isn’t just a feeling, after all; there’s behavioral changes that go along with it. Apparently, even when “she” isn’t real.

Duke Director Of Graduate Studies Steps Down After Asking Chinese Students to Speak English

https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2019/01/28/duke-professor-steps-down-after-asking-chinese-students-to-speak-english/

By Tom Ciccota, 28 January 2019

This is the first time I’ve ever edited the title of an article. Original was “Duke Professor” but that simply doesn’t do credit to the magnitude of this incident.

A professor at Duke University has stepped down from an administrative role after an email in which she asked Chinese students to speak English went viral online.
According to a report from Insider Higher Ed, Duke University Professor Megan Neely has stepped down from her position as the Director of Graduate Studies after an email she sent to Duke graduate students went viral online.

In the email, Neely said that there are “unintended consequences” for students who are speaking Chinese in campus buildings.

“PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE keep these unintended consequences in mind when you choose to speak in Chinese in the building. I have no idea how hard it has been and still is for you to come to the U.S. and have to learn in a non-native language. As such, I have the upmost respect for what you are doing. That being said, I encourage you to commit to using English 100 percent of the time when you are in Hock or any other professional setting.”

Neely isn’t even a battleaxe of a feminist. Pudgy and a New York City haircut is the worst physiognomy can say. I would trust her to bring cookies to a staff meeting but not crack the whip of academic standards. See what happens when the men are chased away? Standards go right out the window.

She encouraged foreign students to commit to using English in campus buildings, allegedly for the purpose of increasing their comfort level with English as their second language. .They were disappointed that these students were not taking the opportunity to improve their English and were being so impolite as to have a conversation that not everyone on the floor could understand,. Neely added in the email.

Recalling my own college days in Commiefornia, foreign students refusing to speak English is unprecedented even in Lefty Land. Why go to a foreign nation, for education no less, to not learn the language? A German exchange student I was close to spoke German in private but never in public.

The Asian Students Associated fired back at Neely for the email, calling it “discriminatory and threatening..

Discriminatory, sure. Speak English or shut up if you’re going to live in America. But threatening? Neely practically begged on her knees.

.Sending such emails to the entire department with discriminatory and threatening language is in no way an effective and appropriate approach to achieve a quiet public work space that is respectful for everyone,. the group said in a statement. .For graduate and international students who are already in precarious situations, depending on education or employment to stay in the country, these “recommendations” are doubly forceful and coercive..

So precarious was their position that they openly attacked the Director of Graduate Studies. “Depending on education or employment to stay in the country”? Chinese nationals who insist on speaking Chinese in professional settings complain that their stay here is temporary? They obviously would rather be in China. They need to go back.

But of course, Duke U doesn’t work that way.

The email was sent on Friday. By Monday, Neely had already stepped down from her position. Neely is still employed by Duke and will likely continue on as a professor of biostatistics.

So fast, so brave, one wonders if Neely didn’t like her admin position anyway. Regardless, Chicomms are coming to America to colonize us.

I don’t want America to die like this… the men giving away my home to the women, then the women giving my home away to the first arrogant foreigner to demand it. Every Chinese grad student at Duke needs their visa cancelled yesterday.

 

Witnessing Whiteness

Hatred of white people in America has reached the point where Coloreds can’t tolerate our existence long enough to reeducate us. Thus, white feminists have been empowered to race-police white men… in order to lock us all into the same room.

The book cum workshop series “Witnessing Whiteness” is authored by a Shelly Tochluk of Mount St. Mary’s College. Its gimmick is creating all-white “facilitated workshops” for examining white privilege, raising awareness of racial identities and other buzzwords that mean “gimmedat” and/or “blame whitey”. I can’t find a proper review of it but let’s discuss its implementation by the Young Women Christian Association of St. Louis, because they answered the burning question of how is a whites-only racial discussion not racist?

The cucking of Christianity has been, if anything, understated. Just look at these they-don’t-call-themselves-Christian leaders: (boldfaces mine)

https://www.ywcastl.org/what-were-doing/racial-justice/who-we-are

Adrian E. Bracy, MBA, CPA, began as the chief executive officer for YWCA Metro St. Louis on Aug. 17, 2009. Although she moved here from Arizona to assume the position, she is no stranger to St. Louis having previously worked for more than a decade as an executive for the St. Louis Rams. She left to become chief financial officer for the Arizona Cardinals in 2007.

Adrian Bracy, CEO

What brings her back to St. Louis is what she says is her calling: .to inspire and make a difference in the lives of women and girls.” The YWCA mission, .eliminating racism and empowering women,. is the right fit at the right time in her career and life.

Bracy has received numerous awards throughout her career including: the African-American Women of Distinction Award; Black Enterprise 50 Most Powerful Blacks in Sports Award; Black Enterprise 50 Most Powerful Black Women in Business; St. Louis Business Journal Most Influential Business Women Award and the YWCA Leaders of Distinction Award in Corporate Management.

She is a lifetime member of the National Association of Black Accountants and the National Black MBA Association.

This professionally racist cunt is in charge of “eliminating racism” in St. Louis. What a joke. Hey, where’s her experience as a Christian? Isn’t that kind of important for the leader of a Christian organization? Did the Arizona Cardinals lead her to Jesus?

She and her husband, Vernon, have one son.

Sounds like she stuck the feminist landing. Does anybody think poor Vernon wears the pants in his family?

Racial Justice Consultant
Mary R Ferguson currently serves as the Racial Justice Consultant for the YWCA of Metro St. Louis. Her background includes teaching and administrative positions at a number of private and public institutions. Most recently Mary was Diversity and Inclusion Leader at Washington University Medical School in St. Louis, after serving as Indiana State University’s Diversity Officer from 2009-2011. She has also been on faculty at Webster University and University of Missouri-St. Louis. Mary came to higher education after spending year in preK-12 education, adult and community education, arts education, and English Language learning.

I made attempts to track down the origin of “Diversity & Inclusion”. It sounds standardized, as if a certain (((billionaire))) was backing it, but there were too many false positives from diversity together with inclusion.

For now, my best guess is that “Diversity & Inclusion” is an iteration of #MeToo, doing for not-Whites what MeToo did for not-cis-males.

Want to understand what?s behind protests in St. Louis? Here?s a reading list | St. Louis Public ...

I can’t do physiognomy with this bad a picture of Ferguson but that smile… that’s a cuck’s smile?

Mary brings extensive knowledge of the non-profit and human services world to her work as well. She has held positions with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and the American Youth Foundation. In St. Louis, Mary has been associated with every major community-based equity organization including the National Conference for Community and Justice, the Anti-Defamation League, FOCUS St. Louis, and the Diversity Awareness Partnership. She provided training to the Ferguson Commission and remains connected to the work of Forward through Ferguson.

Together, these two feminazis have implemented the “Witnessing Whiteness” program. Now the question we’ve been waiting for, how is a whites-only “facilitated discussion workshop” not racism?

WHY A WHITE SPACE?
(Why do we meet as a group of white people?)
For many, it sounds contradictory: .Isn.t it racist if just white people to get together? Isn.t that segregation?. The following are our reasons for organizing as a white anti-racist community:

1. People of color shouldn’t always have to be the ones to educate white people about racism and oppression. We are taking responsibility for learning about racism, our own white privilege, and how to challenge it as white people.

2. In order to challenge racism and dismantle white supremacy, white people need to unlearn racism and discover the ways we enact white privilege. This is a long, difficult, and sometimes painful process. It’s helpful to have a space where other white people engaged in this process can support and challenge us, without having to always subject people of color to further undue trauma or pain as we stumble and make mistakes. Having a community of white anti-racist people gives us hope, helps us grow our practice, and gives us strength to stay in it for the long haul.

3. A commitment to anti-racist identity and practice as a white person can sometimes mean increased alienation and conflict in our lives, especially with other white friends and family who disagree with us. This is a space where we can get support from people who are experiencing similar struggles as anti-racist white people.

4. It’s a space for white people to figure out what it means to be an anti-racist white person and challenge racism in all areas of our lives. We cannot expect people of color to have all of the answers for us on how to transform ourselves and other white people. As white people we are well equipped to understand what it means to be a white, as well as a white anti-racist.

5. It’s a place where white people can begin to build a new culture of white anti-racism, and learn the skills needed to transform the larger white community.

6. This group is a supplement to, not a replacement for, multi-racial dialogues and activism between white people and people of color. It’s important that white people give space in their lives to learning from and bearing witness to people of color’s experiences of racism.

7. A white space serves as a resource to people of color who want to work with white people but don’t want to have to spend all their energy dealing with the racism of white people.

Translation, People of Color want to get rid of their white feminist allies. As identity politics take center stage, as planned by our own leaders since 1965, it’s coming time for all white people to go… not just white men. White feminists are buying into this effort wholesale, fantasizing about holding little reeducation camps without noticing that Blacks are segregating ALL whites away from them by doing so.

Fuck You, Daddy! is about to become Fuck You, Whitey!

www/awarela.org This document was created and revised by AWARE-LA through a cyclical process that included small group dialogue, brainstorm, and discussion. It has been used by many to help explain why we do our consciousness raising work with the white community.

The acronym stands for Alliance of White Anti-Racists Everywhere-Los Angeles. How brainsick must one be to call herself a white anti-racist?

Enough to not realize her Allies of Color are quietly nudging her onto the same plantation as the white men she hates. Did Barbie notice, in those seven reasons above, that the phrase was “white privilege”, no longer “male privilege”?

If there’s one good thing about Communism, it’s what Commies do to their useful idiots when their usefulness is gone.

The emotional support alligator that helps a York County man deal with depression

http://www.philly.com/news/alligator-esa-peacock-dogs-animals-crocodiles-support-depression-20190124.html

by Jason Nark, 24 January 2019

Joie Henney, 65, said these things about Wally, the 5-foot long, 60-pound alligator that lives in his York County living room, but the words don’t sink in and certainly don’t make sense while you’re sharing a couch with said alligator. When the flight or fight panic fades, though, it does appear that Wally is snuggling with Henney on the other end of the brown sectional, often resting his snout on his lap instead of tearing off his ear with a trademark death roll.

.He likes to give hugs,. Henney said.

The emotional support alligator that helps a York County man deal with depression

Wally is Henney’s registered emotional support animal, like a golden retriever, but cold-blooded. His story is the latest, and perhaps most extreme, in the growing world of ESAs, which are often approved by doctors and granted access to restaurants, businesses, and even airplanes. An emotional support peacock was banned from a flight last year.

NOTHING like a golden retriever.

A man who answered an e-mail from a reporter about Wally from the web site Service Dog Registration of America said, “Our therapist would never approve a client to have an alligator as an emotional support animal. “

Good doc!

Henney.s doctor did.

.My doctor wanted to put me on depression medicine, and I hate taking medicine. I had Wally, and when I came home and was around him, it was all OK,” he said. .My doctor knew about Wally and figured it works, so why not?.

Bad doc! I know antidepressants have a bad rep in the Manosphere but Wally is not the alternative one should be looking for.

The depression rolled in quickly like a summer storm, with the death of three close friends in rapid succession. The feeling sat over Henney, and he feared it would never move on.

.Three lifelong friends,. he said, taking a long pause and reaching for tissues.

Sometimes, it’s normal to be depressed. I don’t think Henney mourning his friends will last as long as Wally’s growth into half-ton maturity.

Henney grew up on a farm nearby in Dover, York County, nursing injured owls back to flight. He was in the Marine Corps and rode bulls in the rodeo and broke wooden boards in half as a skilled martial artist. He made a living in construction and, later, hosted a hunting and television show locally.

The three men who died within days of each other were all weaved into those decades, he said. Somehow, Wally filled the void, the camaraderie he lost. One day, he came and slept with him when he was sick.

.We caress and wrestle. He loves to wrestle,. Henney said. .He whacks me with his tail..

alligator hug | animals | Pinterest | Animal, Amphibians and Animal kingdom

A photo of two gators fighting to the death in Florida. Just sayin’.

Henney has five children and 18 grandchildren, and most of them, he said, are fine with Wally.

.I kept my distance at first from him,. said Henney’s girlfriend, Liz Caswell.

We may safely conclude that Henney is, as an evolutionist would say, an r-selected Baby Boomer. I think Wally is a good fit for him… grave sites are so expensive. Speaking of feeding Wally,

Wally, who will be four in July, was rescued from just outside Orlando when he was 14 months old. Henney said Wally could grow anywhere from 14 to 16 feet long and weigh 900 to 1,100 pounds. Wally eats chicken wings and shares a 300-gallon plastic pond, indoors, with Scrappy, a smaller, younger alligator the family has also rescued.

It’s like watching SJW Convergence happen in Reptile World. Willful blindness to the threat, allowing the entryists to recruit allies at great cost to the host organization…

Joie Henney, 65, sits with his emotional support alligator, Wally.

Wally enjoys “finger food” and being petted. Hmm. Probably because of this bad experience getting food from cans:

Joie Henney's emotional support alligator, Wally, rummages through the pantry inside his York County home.

Alligators are undeniably dangerous, though more so for dogs and cats than humans. Florida, home to 1.3 million alligators, has tallied 410 unprovoked bites and 25 fatalities between 1948 and 2018. In one infamous case, a young boy was snatched and drowned by an alligator while on vacation at Disney World. That boy, Henney pointed out, was not eaten.

“Sorry, kids, you’ll still have to pay money to bury me!”

Wally’s favorite programs to watch on television, of course, are Gator Boys and Swamp People. He also likes to watch The Lion King.

Nothing says Boomer like teaching reptiles to watch television.

Wally, Henney cautioned, is still a wild animal, one that could tear his arm off now, and do worse later. But he doesn’t think that will happen. Wally has appeared at senior centers and minor-league baseball games in York. He’s got a meet-and-greet at York’s Central Market next month.

R-selected. So very, very r-selected. “He’s dangerous and could kill us all, kids, but don’t worry, he’d rather be petted with chicken wings. Fingers, I mean. Hands. Just ask my 18 grandkids!” Not to mention that sending Wally back to Florida when he grows up will require… hmm, at a weight of 1,100 pounds… licensed “support animal”… four plane tickets and a nervous air marshal with a shotgun.

Speaking of chicken wings, we go now to Popeye’s Chicken, which is a franchise you should patronize because of their awesome trolling of PETA and SJWs everywhere.

Popeyes Made ‘Emotional Support Chicken’ To Make Holiday Travel Better, And The Boxes Are Actually Hilarious

https://www.delish.com/food-news/a25604652/popeyes-emotional-support-chicken/

by Maya McDowell, 18 December 2018

Traveling is stressful in general, but traveling during the holidays is an entirely different level of stress. Between the massive crowds, long lines, and weather delays, holiday traveling can make you feel like you need emotional support, if you will. Popeyes clearly understands our woes. The chain just launched “Emotional Support Chicken”, “to provide a good-hearted laugh most need to get through stressful holiday air travel,” according to a press release.

Beginning today, travelers going through Philadelphia International Airport will have the chance to get their very own “Emotional Support Chicken” carrier, to conveniently bring their fried chicken on board their flights. What a time to be alive, folks.

The “Emotional Support Chicken” is labeled in big, bold letters, and has an entertaining description printed on the front: “This chicken provides comfort and nourishment during stressful air travel. Unlike other chicken, it is marinated in real Louisiana spices for 12 hours and must be permitted to fly without restriction. Do not leave unattended, as Popeyes is not responsible for lost or stolen chicken.”

The “Emotional Support Chicken” will be available for the three-piece tenders combo while supplies last from Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen in Terminal C. May the chicken ease all your worries!

Troll 9/10. Profitable, proven effective and tasty! Only lost points for not catching on. And now for the Leftoid response:

Popeyes’ ‘Emotional Support Chicken’ Is Receiving Backlash For Being Insensitive

https://www.delish.com/food-news/a25654115/popeyes-emotional-support-chicken-backlash/

by Maya McDowell, 21 December 2018

Only three days per the bylines.

Recently, Popeyes launched “Emotional Support Chicken,” a chicken-shaped carrier that allows passengers traveling through Philadelphia International Airport to bring fried chicken aboard their flights. The purpose of the “Emotional Support Chicken”, per Popeyes, is “to provide a good-hearted laugh most need to get through stressful holiday air travel.” Not everyone is laughing, though.

PETA, for one, has taken major issue with the carriers. The organization tweeted a photo of its own version of the “Emotional Support Chicken” carrier, with a very sad looking chicken and a different message on the box. This one says, “This Chicken Needs Emotional Support.”

Troll 0/10. No sense of humor or irony. I am shocked, shocked I say, that Popeye’s Fried Chicken is not an advocate for chicken rights.

“Ableism as a gimmick for capitalism”, y’know, she isn’t 100% wrong. Capitalism is the idea that you should be paid for your accomplishments, which is a terrible system for useless people such as Miss Dingle. Heh, “Dingle”. Her disabilities aren’t the only part of her mocked by the neighborhood kids.

A petition on Care2, “the world’s largest community for good”, is calling for Popeyes to apologize to the “disability community” for the “Emotional Support Chicken.” … The description quotes Popeyes’ chief marketing officer, Hope Diaz, who said that holiday travel can be “frustrating.”

“You know what’s frustrating, Hope? Living in a world where people make fun of emotional support animals, who provide a vital service to their human partners, whether they’re furred or feathered,” Care2 writes.

Or scaled, cold-blooded carnivores.

“This ‘joke’ definitely doesn’t have wings, and it should be withdrawn from circulation with an apology to the disability community, which is constantly fighting stigma on the subject of emotional support animals.” Care2 also asserts that Popeyes should donate to an organization that improves farmworkers and poultry processors lives or a mental health advocacy group.

Better yet, CMO Diaz could give these parasites Wally’s siblings from Florida. It’ll prove she cares! And Florida knows they have enough ableist gators to spare.

 

 

Gillette Now Targeting Children for Reeducation

They’re starting by poisoning the well of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the most popular replacement for fathers in the United States.

Separating the Men from the Boys: Gillette? Campaign Inspires Men to Re-Examine What It Means to Be Their Best

https://news.gillette.com/press-release/product-news/separating-men-boys-gillette-campaign-inspires-men-re-examine-what-it-mea

Gillette Press Release dated 14 January 2019

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Thirty years after first introducing the tagline “The Best A Man Can Get,. Gillette (NYSE: PG) is taking a fresh look at what it means to be “the best” and how we continue to portray those ideals in a modern way. Because in a world where the actions of the few can taint the reputation of the many, we know there’s work to be done . together.

.Gillette believes in the best in men,. said Gary Coombe, president, P&G Global Grooming. “By holding each other accountable, eliminating excuses for bad behavior, and supporting a new generation working toward their personal .best,. we can help create positive change that will matter for years to come..

They intend to blame men for the behavior of other men. That’s a classical conditioning behavior, most commonly association with basic training. It promotes a collectivist attitude. That’s great for both fighting as a unit and thinking as an NPC.

Today, Gillette is introducing a new marketing campaign and charitable program dedicated to celebrating the stories of men making a positive impact, and to inspire others in the process. The program-leading short film , entitled We Believe, begins with a compilation of actions commonly associated with “toxic masculinity..

That’s the infamous two-minute commercial. Apparently, it’s actually a kickoff short movie for a new campaign on goodthink male behavior, not a standalone derp.

More importantly, it then showcases examples of how men can take actions large and small to create meaningful change for themselves, their loved ones, their peers and set the right example for the next generation of men. Because it’s only by challenging ourselves to do more that we get closer to our best.

In addition to debuting the short film, Gillette is taking action by committing to donating $1 million per year for the next three years to non-profit organizations executing programs in the United States designed to help men of all ages achieve their personal “best.”

Through this commitment, we want to both deliver and inspire more:

RESPECT . Demonstrating respect and fostering inclusivity for all, including genders, races, religions and orientations.

The perverts, Muzzies and child molesters demand the respect of cis-men.

ACCOUNTABILITY . Ending phrases like “Boys Will Be Boys” and eliminating the justification of bad behavior.

Fixed notions of masculine behavior will be thrown out as a matter of first principles.

ROLE MODELING – Inspiring men to help create a new standard for boys to admire. We want boys to see and admire traits like honesty, integrity, hard work, empathy and respect . words that people across the U.S. use when describing what a great man looks like.

They will start by corrupting our children.

.In our last decade of work on the theory of masculinity in modern America, we’ve sought to understand both the internal and external forces that shape men’s attitudes, beliefs and actions,. said Drs. William Seymour, Ramel Smith, and Hector Torres of the Building a Better Man Project. .We’re honored to partner with Gillette as they seek to champion causes that can make a positive impact on men and boys..

Guess what, all three founders of the BBM Project are American Psychological Association members. Let’s segue to the APA’s coverage of them:

http://www.nxtbook.com/nxtbooks/apa/monitor_201206/index.php#/68

According to the trio, all members of APA’s Div. 51 (Society for the Psychological Study of Men and Masculinity), American society socializes boys and men to conform to a definition of masculinity that emphasized toughness, stoicism, acquisitiveness and self-reliance. And that, they say, leads to aggressive, emotionally stunted male who harm not just themselves but their children, partners and entire communities.

You know what causes emotionally stunted boys? The death of marriage that has been so complete that these fools now use the term “partners” instead of “wives”.

To address these issues, the trio has launched an awareness campaign plus a pilot program that brings middle school and high school-aged boys of different ethnicities together in eight weeks of facilitated discussions. Their goal?

Mind control?

To teach boys and men to keep that’s positive about traditional masculinity while jettisoning what’s bad.

Yep, mind control. Bad for who, one wonders? Who feels threatened by men being the family breadwinner and thinking for himself instead of what community guidelines specify?

Eventually, [the psychologists] also hope to include girls and women in the conversation. “We want to start the conversation men to men,” says Torres. “At a certain point, we’ll have to integrate more females into the conversation so that they can help us with their insights and understanding.”

That answers my question perfectly. Behold the wet dream of female territory marking!

In the meantime, Stephanie A. Shields, PhD, president of APA’s Div. 35 (Society for the Psychology of Women) thinks the group should rethink what it means to be a woman as well as what it means to be a man.

“As they guide men to understand the positive side of power and assertiveness, it will be important to help men understand that women, too, can be powerful,” says Shields, a professor of psychology and women’s studies at the Pennsylvania State University. “Instead of seeing strong women as a threat to masculinity, the new masculine identity will accept and work with strong and powerful women in constructive ways.”

The American Psychological Association has become a SOURCE of psychological dysfunction. Back to the main article,

Our first partner in this effort is The Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Positive experiences at Boys & Girls Clubs provide young men with the important social and emotional skills they need to communicate effectively, to work with others, and develop coping mechanisms in order to face challenging situations. These skills are critical in everyday life and to the success of young people. With more than 4,300 Clubs across the country, Boys & Girls Clubs. singular mission is to ensure that youth in America have the opportunities that set them up for success so that they graduate on-time with a plan for their futures, where they live healthy lifestyles and give back to their communities.

This isn’t the first time the Boys & Girls Clubs organization has been tapped for social engineering. Per Wikipedia, Disney donated $1M of Black Panther profits to the BGC for encouraging girls towards STEM. That’s as sadistic towards girls as teaching boys to be enablers of Strong&Independent women.

It’s the Garden of Eden as public policy. Eve MUST take charge of society. Adam MUST pander to Eve’s feral instincts, in rebellion to his own biology and his God-given place in Creation.

.As the world’s largest marketer to men, we knew that joining the dialogue on “Modern Manhood” would mean changing how we think about and portray men at every turn,. said Gary Coombe, president, P&G Global Grooming. “As a starting point, and effective immediately, Gillette will review all public-facing content against a set of defined standards meant to ensure we fully reflect the ideals of Respect, Accountability and Role Modeling in the ads we run, the images we publish to social media, the words we choose, and more. For us, the decision to publicly assert our beliefs while celebrating men who are doing things right was an easy choice that makes a difference..

Methinks the Sales Justice Fairy will be visiting Gillette before he can finish up with Dick’s Sporting Goods. *checks* Hmm, grooming products are already down 5% in Q4 2018 per Proctor & Gamble’s latest report to investors. This was not the way to save that product line.

WHAT DOES THE BEST LOOK LIKE

In preparation for this initiative, Gillette conducted a national study* of U.S. men and women to understand how they would define the attributes of a man “at his best.” The results emphasize the outsized importance of “soft” skills in today’s modern man . and most particularly the application of those skills to the role of fatherhood.

First they swore to reinvent masculinity, then they held a poll to figure out what masculinity is. I can’t unpackage all the wrongness in that.

The four traits that define a “great man” for the majority of respondents, regardless of gender, are:
Honesty (64%)
Moral integrity (51%),
Hard-working (43%),
Respectful to others (41%).

Men and women universally agree that being a good father is one of the most important things a great man does (95%).

Great men impregnate women! *Chad smirks* Yes, thank you Chad. Ahem. Great men raise womens’ babies!

Other positive actions for “great men” include: Setting a good example for others (96% agree),

It’s okay for women to not set a good example for others? That explains so much!

Stepping in and taking action when he sees someone in need (95% find this important).

STEM Barbie needs help doing her job!

As Gillette and our partners work together in the development of national programs that will inspire positive actions in men everywhere, we encourage you to visit to TheBestMenCanBe.org and @Gillette social channels for information on getting involved, and to share your stories. Because in taking actions both big and small together, we can collectively live up to what it really means to be The Best A Man Can Get.

Now that fathers have been removed from families and organizations like the Boys & Girls Clubs are the new guardians of healthy child development, false “mental health experts” are stepping up with Converged corporate funding to ensure that even the memory of fatherhood is lost to humanity forever.

Satan laughs.

 

Surveillance Capitalism

I’m a terrible macroeconomist. All the fancy words, metrics and graphs make my head spin. What I do in such cases is draw analogies from related behavior that I can understand. That allows me to make more progress than a hundred pundits can manage. Example, what is quantitative easing? It’s inflation. That’s obviously not 100% accurate but 99% is close enough.

Which brings us to the monetization of information and the Internet of Things, two “new and life-changing” ideas that pundits love to talk about. Well, no. When it comes to humans and their managers, the behavior dynamics are no different than the schoolyard and slavery. Technology is a new tool for the same old conduct. This article would be almost impossible to read unless you knew that the author was a Marxist. The book author wants to discuss the “new concept” she discovered, the columnist wants to explore the implications and I want to point out how history has already recorded what’s about to happen.

‘The goal is to automate us’: welcome to the age of surveillance capitalism

Shoshana Zuboff’s new book is a chilling expos? of the business model that underpins the digital world. Observer tech columnist John Naughton explains the importance of Zuboff’s work and asks the author 10 key questions

Nine key questions. Naughton counted wrong.

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/jan/20/shoshana-zuboff-age-of-surveillance-capitalism-google-facebook

By John Naughton, 20 January 2019

We’re living through the most profound transformation in our information environment since Johannes Gutenberg’s invention of printing in circa 1439. And the problem with living through a revolution is that it’s impossible to take the long view of what’s happening. Hindsight is the only exact science in this business, and in that long run we’re all dead.

My just-described method is much superior to hindsight. The key is that human nature doesn’t change; thus, the key to understanding a new technology is first understanding default human behavior. Replace your technology columnist with a theologian for best results.

Printing shaped and transformed societies over the next four centuries, but nobody in Mainz (Gutenberg.s home town) in, say, 1495 could have known that his technology would (among other things): fuel the Reformation and undermine the authority of the mighty Catholic church; enable the rise of what we now recognise as modern science; create unheard-of professions and industries; change the shape of our brains; and even recalibrate our conceptions of childhood. And yet printing did all this and more.

The priests knew what the printing press would do because they knew they weren’t obeying Scripture. A new invention to make Scripture accessible to their chumps was clearly going to have the effect that it eventually did. That’s why Luther’s greatest offense against the Vatican wasn’t the 95 Theses against indulgences, it was translating the Bible into German so ordinary people could read it for themselves. A good opening example of how new technology’s impact can be predictable.

Why choose 1495? Because we’re about the same distance into our revolution, the one kicked off by digital technology and networking. And although it’s now gradually dawning on us that this really is a big deal and that epochal social and economic changes are under way, we’re as clueless about where it’s heading and what’s driving it as the citizens of Mainz were in 1495.

Yes, we can network better than ever before. No, it’s not revolutionary. We had the Sears Roebuck catalog before Amazon and pen pals before blogging. Tech facilitates human behavior but doesn’t create new behaviors.

Which is why the arrival of Shoshana Zuboff’s new book is such a big event. Many years ago . in 1988, to be precise . as one of the first female professors at Harvard Business School to hold an endowed chair she published a landmark book, The Age of the Smart Machine: The Future of Work and Power, which changed the way we thought about the impact of computerisation on organisations and on work.

Nobody has heard of that book, which proves how much of a Rosetta Stone for the future it wasn’t. This seems a good place to discuss Zuboff:

Whoa, nelly! The saying is “hoop earrings are where her feet go during playtime”. That, her manjaw Jaws-jaw and flat chest proves she’s a high-T slut.

Her ring finger is longer than her index finger. Testosterone confirmed! Meanwhile, she keeps her hair thick to accommodate all the frizziness… indicating a major case of disrupted thinking. A female amongst the Harvard Elites proves she’s socialist, feminist and generally an enemy of all men who once could have made a good husband for her.

[The earlier book] provided the most insightful account up to that time of how digital technology was changing the work of both managers and workers. …

And now [her new book] has arrived . the most ambitious attempt yet to paint the bigger picture and to explain how the effects of digitisation that we are now experiencing as individuals and citizens have come about. …

Her story is that Big Data is not so much about the nature of digital technology as about a new, mutant form of capitalism that has found a way to use tech for its purposes. The name Zuboff has given to the new variant is “surveillance capitalism..

It works by providing free services that billions of people cheerfully use, enabling the providers of those services to monitor the behaviour of those users in astonishing detail . often without their explicit consent.

.Surveillance capitalism,. she writes, .unilaterally claims human experience as free raw material for translation into behavioural data. Although some of these data are applied to service improvement, the rest are declared as a proprietary behavioural surplus, fed into advanced manufacturing processes known as “machine intelligence., and fabricated into prediction products that anticipate what you will do now, soon, and later. Finally, these prediction products are traded in a new kind of marketplace that I call behavioural futures markets. Surveillance capitalists have grown immensely wealthy from these trading operations, for many companies are willing to lay bets on our future behaviour..

Monetizing human behavior has been done before. It’s called slavery, not surveillance capitalism. Slavery is an economic institution, not a political institution. It’s an umbrella of systems for underpaying people for services rendered.

While the general modus operandi of Google, Facebook et al has been known and understood (at least by some people) for a while, what has been missing . and what Zuboff provides . is the insight and scholarship to situate them in a wider context. She points out that while most of us think that we are dealing merely with algorithmic inscrutability, in fact what confronts us is the latest phase in capitalism’s long evolution . from the making of products, to mass production, to managerial capitalism, to services, to financial capitalism, and now to the exploitation of behavioural predictions covertly derived from the surveillance of users. In that sense, her vast (660-page) book is a continuation of a tradition that includes Adam Smith, Max Weber, Karl Polanyi and . dare I say it . Karl Marx.

That evolution of capitalism is a badly incorrect sequence. Just as an example, America’s capitalism shifting from mass-produced goods to a service-sector economy was not an evolution. Our manufacturing base was intentionally dismanthed by free trade. Service jobs can’t be sent overseas, hence they became the dominant sector of the economy.

That didn’t have to happen.

Let’s begin the questions.

1. John Naughton: At the moment, the world is obsessed with Facebook. But as you tell it, Google was the prime mover.

Shoshana Zuboff: Surveillance capitalism is a human creation. It lives in history, not in technological inevitability. It was pioneered and elaborated through trial and error at Google in much the same way that the Ford Motor Company discovered the new economics of mass production or General Motors discovered the logic of managerial capitalism.

Surveillance capitalism was invented around 2001 as the solution to financial emergency in the teeth of the dotcom bust when the fledgling company faced the loss of investor confidence. As investor pressure mounted, Google’s leaders abandoned their declared antipathy toward advertising. Instead they decided to boost ad revenue by using their exclusive access to user data logs (once known as “data exhaust.) in combination with their already substantial analytical capabilities and computational power, to generate predictions of user click-through rates, taken as a signal of an ad’s relevance.

I disagree. After the craziness of early dot-com investment, Google reached the point of needing to turn a profit. The simple answer, back when payment processors were neither sophisticated nor fraud-resistant, was the precedent of radio. The consumers of radio broadcasts can’t put quarters in their home jukebox so the stations got their revenue from the other side, via advertising.

AOL had pop-up ads long before Google did. Google leveraging its databases to improve advertising was only a variation on the theme.

2. JN: So surveillance capitalism started with advertising, but then became more general?

SZ: Surveillance capitalism is no more limited to advertising than mass production was limited to the fabrication of the Ford Model T. It quickly became the default model for capital accumulation in Silicon Valley, embraced by nearly every startup and app. And it was a Google executive . Sheryl Sandberg . who played the role of Typhoid Mary, bringing surveillance capitalism from Google to Facebook, when she signed on as Mark Zuckerberg’s number two in 2008. By now it’s no longer restricted to individual companies or even to the internet sector. It has spread across a wide range of products, services, and economic sectors, including insurance, retail, healthcare, finance, entertainment, education, transportation, and more, birthing whole new ecosystems of suppliers, producers, customers, market-makers, and market players.

No, it’s limited to the Internet sector. Outside it, recording every person’s individual decision and thought is extremely difficult. This is the purpose of the Internet of Things: those who want to track human behavior want to track it in real life, so they push for “Internetting” everything from dollars to grocery lists.

The bait is convenience. The hook is behavior control, which can only happen with the precedent of behavior observation. More on that later.

3. JN: In this story of conquest and appropriation, the term “digital natives” takes on a new meaning.

SZ: Yes, .digital natives. is a tragically ironic phrase. I am fascinated by the structure of colonial conquest, especially the first Spaniards who stumbled into the Caribbean islands. Historians call it the “conquest pattern., which unfolds in three phases: legalistic measures to provide the invasion with a gloss of justification, a declaration of territorial claims, and the founding of a town to legitimate the declaration. Back then Columbus simply declared the islands as the territory of the Spanish monarchy and the pope. …

Google began by unilaterally declaring that the world wide web was its to take for its search engine. Surveillance capitalism originated in a second declaration that claimed our private experience for its revenues that flow from telling and selling our fortunes to other businesses. In both cases, it took without asking. Page [Larry, Google co-founder] foresaw that surplus operations would move beyond the online milieu to the real world, where data on human experience would be free for the taking. As it turns out his vision perfectly reflected the history of capitalism, marked by taking things that live outside the market sphere and declaring their new life as market commodities.

Zuboff’s Communist colors showed in that question. Google’s collection of data, at least initially, was voluntary and later became a monopolistic practice. Her comparison to Spanish colonialism came out of nowhere. No surprise that a hardened feminist’s first step in understanding a complex topic is looking for a villain to blame.

As an aside, conquest is the Communist model, not the capitalist. The latter is driven by market incentives; the former is driven by envy.

4. JN: Then there’s the “inevitability” narrative . technological determinism on steroids.

SZ: In my early fieldwork in the computerising offices and factories of the late 1970s and 80s, I discovered the duality of information technology: its capacity to automate but also to .informate., which I use to mean to translate things, processes, behaviours, and so forth into information. This duality set information technology apart from earlier generations of technology: information technology produces new knowledge territories by virtue of its informating capability, always turning the world into information. The result is that these new knowledge territories become the subject of political conflict. The first conflict is over the distribution of knowledge: .Who knows?. The second is about authority: .Who decides who knows?. The third is about power: .Who decides who decides who knows?.

In keeping with her Communist outlook on life, Zuboff is trying to build a framework for a Proletariat Revolution. She’s also setting up for a Hegelian dialetic between one side which controls the information and the opposing side which IS the information. Per history, her synthesis will be a political class that rules Big Data on behalf of the unwashed masses.

Aside from that, there’s no need for new words such as “informate” here. The previous version of translating things, processes, behaviours and so forth into information was three-ring binders of standard operating procedures.

5. JN: So the big story is not really the technology per se but the fact that it has spawned a new variant of capitalism that is enabled by the technology?

SZ: Larry Page grasped that human experience could be Google’s virgin wood, that it could be extracted at no extra cost online and at very low cost out in the real world. For today’s owners of surveillance capital the experiential realities of bodies, thoughts and feelings are as virgin and blameless as nature’s once-plentiful meadows, rivers, oceans and forests before they fell to the market dynamic. We have no formal control over these processes because we are not essential to the new market action. Instead we are exiles from our own behaviour, denied access to or control over knowledge derived from its dispossession by others for others. Knowledge, authority and power rest with surveillance capital, for which we are merely “human natural resources.” We are the native peoples now whose claims to self-determination have vanished from the maps of our own experience.

There’s the other half of the Hegelian dialetic she’s setting up.

While it is impossible to imagine surveillance capitalism without the digital, it is easy to imagine the digital without surveillance capitalism. The point cannot be emphasised enough: surveillance capitalism is not technology. Digital technologies can take many forms and have many effects, depending upon the social and economic logics that bring them to life. Surveillance capitalism relies on algorithms and sensors, machine intelligence and platforms, but it is not the same as any of those.

It’s actually quite easy to imagine surveillance capitalism without the digital. “Papers, please”? Every despot gathers extensive information on the people he oppresses in order to control them. Even the American government has a decennial census for keeping track of its population, dating from the 18th Century.

The Information Age has facilitated that behavior but not created that behavior. Of course, it’s not capitalism of any kind. It’s just surveillance.

6. JN: Where does surveillance capitalism go from here?

SZ: Surveillance capitalism moves from a focus on individual users to a focus on populations, like cities, and eventually on society as a whole. Think of the capital that can be attracted to futures markets in which population predictions evolve to approximate certainty.

Now Zuboff’s humanist roots are showing. She imagines having enough information to literally play God. Unfortunately for her, the deity she doesn’t believe in exists so I don’t think much of her well-ordered Utopia. To say nothing of the fallen angel pulling her strings.

This has been a learning curve for surveillance capitalists, driven by competition over prediction products. First they learned that the more surplus the better the prediction, which led to economies of scale in supply efforts. Then they learned that the more varied the surplus the higher its predictive value. This new drive toward economies of scope sent them from the desktop to mobile, out into the world: your drive, run, shopping, search for a parking space, your blood and face, and always. location, location, location.

Which is why the information “what I had for breakfast and where” is valuable. Knowing my behavior is the first step towards controlling my behavior. The Goolag’s real goal is not coupons for breakfast burritos.

If more data was good data then science wouldn’t be having its reproducibility crisis. I looked into that crisis and the gist of it is that scientists were reporting correlations between statistics instead of deriving and testing the underlying principles.

They seek to control, not to understand. A very common theme in history.

7. JN: What are the implications for democracy?

SZ: During the past two decades surveillance capitalists have had a pretty free run, with hardly any interference from laws and regulations. Democracy has slept while surveillance capitalists amassed unprecedented concentrations of knowledge and power. These dangerous asymmetries are institutionalised in their monopolies of data science, their dominance of machine intelligence, which is surveillance capitalism’s “means of production., their ecosystems of suppliers and customers, their lucrative prediction markets, their ability to shape the behaviour of individuals and populations, their ownership and control of our channels for social participation, and their vast capital reserves. We enter the 21st century marked by this stark inequality in the division of learning: they know more about us than we know about ourselves or than we know about them. These new forms of social inequality are inherently antidemocratic.

This is a good time to mention that when a Communist like Zuboff talks about democracy, she’s talking about Marx’s proletariat not a representational system of government. USA could ban all women and socialists from citizenship and still have a democratic system of government.

My Hegelian synthesis prediction is looking good.

This antidemocratic and anti-egalitarian juggernaut is best described as a market-driven coup from above: an overthrow of the people concealed as the technological Trojan horse of digital technology. On the strength of its annexation of human experience, this coup achieves exclusive concentrations of knowledge and power that sustain privileged influence over the division of learning in society. It is a form of tyranny that feeds on people but is not of the people. Paradoxically, this coup is celebrated as .personalisation., although it defiles, ignores, overrides, and displaces everything about you and me that is personal.

I agree that Big Data is a form of tyranny but not where she says it’s “not of the people”. Slaves want tyrants as surely as tyrants want slaves. This is why so many people accept the digitization and monetization of their daily lives, because many of them WANT to be monitored and controlled.

Human nature is to be ruled by God. For those who believe God does not exist, a tyranny of information-driven micromanagement is a comfort, not a burden. “If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent Him.” -Voltaire

8. JN: Our societies seem transfixed by all this: we are like rabbits paralysed in the headlights of an oncoming car.

SZ: Despite surveillance capitalism’s domination of the digital milieu and its illegitimate power to take private experience and to shape human behaviour, most people find it difficult to withdraw, and many ponder if it is even possible. This does not mean, however, that we are foolish, lazy, or hapless. On the contrary, in my book I explore numerous reasons that explain how surveillance capitalists got away with creating the strategies that keep us paralysed. These include the historical, political and economic conditions that allowed them to succeed. And we’ve already discussed some of the other key reasons, including the nature of the unprecedented, conquest by declaration. Other significant reasons are the need for inclusion, identification with tech leaders and their projects, social persuasion dynamics, and a sense of inevitability, helplessness and resignation.

The proletariats are unfairly oppressed by the factory owners! How original.

9. JN: Our societies seem transfixed by all this: we are like rabbits paralysed in the headlights of an oncoming car.

Other significant reasons are the need for inclusion, identification with tech leaders and their projects, social persuasion dynamics, and a sense of inevitability, helplessness and resignation.

Translation, we’re helpless without a Communist Party seizing the reins of Big Data on behalf of the workers.

Surveillance capitalism is a human-made phenomenon and it is in the realm of politics that it must be confronted. The resources of our democratic institutions must be mobilised, including our elected officials. GDPR [a recent EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the EU] is a good start, and time will tell if we can build on that sufficiently to help found and enforce a new paradigm of information capitalism. Our societies have tamed the dangerous excesses of raw capitalism before, and we must do it again.

Boom, right on schedule. Substitute New Socialist Worker’s Party for “elected officials of our democratic institutions” and Zugoff’s impenetrable logorrhea becomes not only clear, it becomes a reiteration of last century’s Communism.

It’s all about patterns. Zugoff sees Big Data and the people it monitors as Marx’s factory owners and peasants. I see eggheaded Elites with a new lever by which to control us for their doomed-to-fail social experiments, again a very common pattern in history. Don’t let the glamour fascinate you. The Brave New World is the Same Old Shit.

That’s because human nature never changes. It can’t change. We’re wired. Programmed by a Creator. We can fight against that programming and repeat history, or we can accept that programming and make the most of life… and repeat a happier part of history.

You don’t have to be a subject matter expert to recognize a pattern. “Surveillance capitalism” is just non-gov’t… well, not-yet-gov’t… tyranny. The Goolag intends to enslave us and this is not news to anybody with an understanding of history.

PORTLAND, Ore. . A new city policy requiring public signs on brick buildings warning they might collapse in an earthquake is part of a long history of white supremacy aimed at forcing black people to move out of neighborhoods, the NAACP of Portland, Oregon, says.

The group on Thursday decried the policy affecting some 1,600 unreinforced masonry buildings that are on average 90 years old, many in areas with a predominantly black population, The Oregonian/OregonLive reports.

They already do this in Commiefornia. I’ve never understood the point. Do they expect people to not go inside because the Big One Earthquake might happen in the next five minutes? “I’d love to buy your coffee but your building is an unreinforced masonry structure! Maybe you can take my order from the parking lot? My car is underneath the big oak tree.”

The policy “exacerbates a long history of systemic and structural betrayals of trust and policies of displacement, demolition, and dispossession predicated on classism, racism, and white supremacy,. the group said.

It’s comments like this that make me cheer the Mexicans firebombing the blacks out of Los Angeles. The browns don’t blame us for everything and the weather.

The NAACP said the policy will make it tougher for owners of brick buildings to get loans and will discourage investment. It says that means buildings will have to be sold, and that developers will demolish and redevelop, increasing the cost to live there and forcing current residents out.

.It speaks to our houses of worship and everything about the black presence in the North-Northeast area,. said the Rev. E.D. Mondaine, a pastor at Celebration Tabernacle Church in north Portland and president of the Portland NAACP chapter.

He’s a clear-cut violation of Church and State. If only my clergy would notice that it’s okay to be political in the pulpit… what isn’t okay is being conservative anywhere.

City officials say the ordinance approved in October is part of an effort ultimately aimed at upgrading old buildings to withstand an earthquake, though seismic upgrades likely wouldn’t be required for at least 20 years. Such upgrades could cost brick-building owners millions of dollars.

If it bothers them then they can do what Californians do and have those unsafe structures declared Historic Sites. Then the gov’t won’t be allowed to demolish them even when they become unlivable because real history is piles of rubble! Like Stonehenge and Detroit.

Experts say Portland is at risk because there’s close to a 50 percent chance of a giant earthquake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone off the Oregon coast in the next 50 years.

I don’t recall that one… *checks* ah, it’s offshore. More of a tidal wave concern but okay, Portland has a front row seat to the Pacific Ring of Fire and its gov’t wants to become quakeproof. That’s a legitimate purpose of gov’t, enforcing a building code suitable for likely natural disasters.

If that means your ghetto get foreclosed on as a safety hazard then too bad.

The warning signs and a requirement that building owners must file a record of compliance is “really just a disclosure,. said Alex Cousins, a spokesman for the city Bureau of Development Services. .That’s the purpose behind it..

The warning signs are to go up on public buildings this month, and on most other buildings by March 1. The warning on them says: .This is an unreinforced masonry building. Unreinforced masonry buildings may be unsafe in the event of a major earthquake..

Yep, that’s verbatim the California sign. Must be the same manufacturer.

In related action, a nonprofit coalition of Portland brick building owners recently filed a lawsuit seeking to block the ordinance, arguing it’s unconstitutional under free-speech and due-process rights.

.The government is forcing private property owners to basically broadcast the government’s message instead of their own,. said John DiLorenzo, an attorney for the group.

Also, a coalition of music venues called MusicPortland has sided with the NAACP, saying the ordinance threatens some 30 of its music venues.

I can see them winning about the signs… but I can’t see them winning about the building code. Yo, MusicPortland, the city isn’t required to give you years of notice. Give them trouble, maybe they’ll give you no warning.

One sad truth about parasitism is that parasites can’t see the future, indeed, anything past the needs of the moment. Portland blacks have 20 years to figure out how to accommodate earthquake safety standards but instead, they’d rather live in squalor and blame whitey for trying to replace unsafe structures with safe ones… and later on, blame whitey for the collapse of their unsafe structure that they didn’t allow to be replaced.

This is also why they love debt spending. The bills never come due! Where did these bills come from?

That parasitical attitude isn’t unique to the NAACP. If our enemies were honest enemies, they’d realize that genociding American whites… an incredibly gullible and wealthy demographic, on the whole… would be horrible. Much better to close the border and allow enough consideration to whites for the free welfare carousel to spin for decades. Alas. From women burning Betas to Hondurans riding free buses to the Promised Land of Freebies, all the parasites want is whatever they want, when they want it, until the Collapse.

Which could easily be triggered by the Big One.

 

 

Mel Magazine Complains of YouTube Red Pills

A fun article I found out about on Dalrock’s blog. The feminists are complaining about us! Grab a seat, it’s great reading.

WHEN YOUTUBE RED-PILLS THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE

What it’s like to watch, terrified and helpless, as your partner becomes radicalized by hate on the fringe right

https://melmagazine.com/en-us/story/youtube-red-pill-men-right-wing-hate-radicalization

By Hussein Kesvani, 16 January 2019

Right off the bat, SJWs are blaming YouTube for content produced by not-YouTube is so very typical of Convergence. No dissent must be tolerated! So decree the Tolerant.

I love it when my enemies fight each other.

Sarah (a pseudonym), 30, had met Craig while she was studying for her master’s degree in psychology. He worked at her local pub near in Holborn, West London. Craig, who had voted for the Conservative Party in 2010 but .wasn.t interested in politics. worked odd jobs . as a bartender, as a bouncer at a nightclub, on contract at a recruiting firm . earning just enough to pay his rent and bills. They bonded over their unwavering support for the Chelsea Football Club, Al Pacino movies and late-night runs to McDonald’s for Chicken McNuggets and barbecue sauce. On the nights when she studied late, Craig would meet her outside the university library to walk her home. When she was sick, he’d bring her spicy dumpling soup from her favorite Chinese restaurant.

An inverted marriage, with Wifey the dominant breadwinner and Hubby the attentive helpmate. That is not God’s Will for humanity and a notoriously unstable situation.

.He was a really chilled-out guy for the first couple of years we were together,. Sarah tells me when we meet at a cafe near her place of work. Small and slender, with bright blue eyes and dyed blonde hair, Sarah looks down at her cup of tea as she recalls the best moments of her relationship, the ones she tried to fixate on during those nights when Craig would shout at her, claim she was a “bitch” and a “whore” and send her text messages calling her an .anti-English,. .dumb liberal..

That sounds very unlikely. Did you beat your wife after taking the Red Pill? Yep, didn’t think so.

.Our relationship started normally: We went for walks, saw films, went out for dinner. Most of the “arguments” we’d have would be where to go out on a date. When I moved in with him after graduation, the arguments were about who would do the washing up or the cooking that night,. she says. By the end of their relationship in September, though, she found herself having to not only try to get Craig to do his share of the laundry, but to justify why people should be allowed to speak languages other than English in public, why removing taxes for tampons isn’t unfair, and more bizarrely, why being a feminist isn’t the same as being a Nazi.

That DOES sound likely. This is England, people should speak English. Women wanting free stuff is not fair. Realizing feminism is female rebellion against God and men does foster a negative attitude, albeit one that doesn’t instantly resort to Nazi comparisons. And laundry is totally womens’ work.

.Nearly all the arguments came from YouTube videos he was watching,. Sarah tells me. “Because he’d work at night, he’d spend the day on the internet. He’d be watching them, and send them to me throughout the day on WhatsApp, over email, anywhere really.” During one work meeting in 2016, she received videos from him about a “migrant invasion into Britain, orchestrated by Angela Merkel and Barack Obama,. which showed Libyan refugees getting off a boat carrying large bags and shouting, .Thank you, Merkel!. played over dark orchestral music. Other videos supported Donald Trump’s proposed ban on Muslim immigrants, diatribes on feminism “threatening traditional families” and “scientific evidence” suggesting that white people have higher IQs than black and South Asian people.

With each, he’d ask what her view on it was. Sometimes, she.d say she didn’t know, and he’d “send me more videos, or explain why they were correct.” Other times, when she.d disagree . for example, when it came to whether abortion should be legal . he’d get angry. .He would start off by saying I was wrong, demanding I explain my view . during a work day! When I wouldn’t respond to him immediately, he’d tell me that my view was stupid and idiotic and that I was just another “dumb leftie” who didn’t know what they were talking about..

That doesn’t add up. The guy worked nights so instead of sleeping, he called his girl at work? Smells like a pity play. She was probably distracted at work by breakfast conversation.

The ability to create good arguments is not universal. It’s okay to rely upon others’ arguments so long as you agree with them.

In the year leading up to their breakup, Sarah tells me she desperately tried to help him stop watching the videos he was slowly becoming obsessed with. .I tried to take him to parties I was invited to, to be around him more. I sent him messages every hour while I was at work to say that I loved him. I thought that having human contact, to know that he didn’t have to be so angry all the time, that he was loved by so many people, would be enough to get him away from all that material..

Take notes, ladies. Controlling behavior like this doesn’t work.

Sarah and Craig’s relationship isn’t atypical in 2019, a time in which it’s not uncommon for women to find themselves with male partners who have been .Red-Pilled,. or radicalized online by misogynistic, far-right content and communities.

Overton Window much?

In particular, on online forums such as the U.K.-based “The Student Room,. users have posted stories like this one: .My boyfriend views relationships as a manipulation game and brags about stuff that never happened with elaborate lies. . He believes girls are evolutionary programmed to want to be treated like shit, but have developed clever adaptive methods to deceive men..

The term Red Pill refers to the internet’s .manosphere,. a collection of male-dominated subcultures that ranges from “incels” (involuntarily celibate men who believe that Western liberalism and feminism prevents them from having sex or securing long-term relationships) to .men’s rights activists. (who believe that liberal, left-wing politics have waged an all-out war on white, heterosexual men by “promoting” abortion, immigration and LGBTQ issues).

The clueless meter just blew a fuse.

In 2016, The Guardian described Red Pill communities as a network of groups that collectively envisioned .a reality that women run the world without taking responsibility for it, and that their male victims aren’t permitted to complain.” Popular mantras used on Red Pill message boards include “Feminism Is Cancer,. the same phrase used by right-wing provocateurs like Milo Yiannopoulos and Infowars. Paul Joseph Watson.

On Reddit, where Red Pill pages have more than 200,000 members and are among the most vibrant communities on the platform, men, often those who are socially awkward and emotionally vulnerable, are told that “women are, by nature, manipulative, attention-seeking, inconsistent, emotional and hypergamous. Accept this truth. Once you do, you can game women for what they are. not what you want them to be..

If they thought Reddit was bad then they haven’t discovered us yet. Such lazy reporting! I’m peeved the Christian Manosphere didn’t even warrant a mention in this article. Sunrise Hoodie is on YouTube, they surely noticed him.

.The “manosphere” consists of a large number of groups . whether it’s incels, .Men Going Their Own Way. or .pick-up artists. . that all push the same kind of message, that the men who go to their pages are being hard done by women and society at large,. says Annie Kelly, a PhD student at the University of East Anglia who researches the impact of digital culture on the far right.

Kelly is earning a PhD on our blogs! That’s awesome.

She adds that while there isn’t a single reason why men would be attracted to Red Pill communities, as a hyper-networked online subculture, it’s able to transmit its messages and philosophies to a much wider audience. All of which means that “grievances related to lack of sexual and romantic partners are located in the same spaces as right-wing propaganda around the refugee crisis and trans issues. When they’re reinforced in these groups, as well as by mainstream media outlets on Facebook and YouTube, people are more exposed to them, and they end up buying into some of the maxims without realizing it. The online world becomes part of their lived world..

Last week, the Huffington Post ran a feature about Nina Kouprianova, the wife of U.S. neo-Nazi and alt-right leader Richard Spencer, detailing instances of verbal, psychological and physical abuse she endured while married to him and assisting him in his goal of establishing an all-white ethnostate in the age of Trump. Kouprianova claims that she denounces Spencer’s ideology and was simply providing assistance to her ex-husband out of love and care for him, rather than his movement.

As the article made its way around the internet, many people found themselves asking the same question: How much sympathy should we have toward women whose partners lurch further to extremism during the course of their relationship . especially if these women tend to be the ones held responsible for bringing the men back from the brink? Indeed, in knowing the views and attitudes of social conservatives in regard to issues like immigration, rights for minority groups and LGBTQ issues, should these women have avoided dating such men entirely?

This is the situation Ellen, 24, found herself in as she watched her boyfriend, 30-year-old Steven (his name has been changed at Ellen’s request), become more and more entrenched in right-wing online content. Speaking over the phone, Ellen tells me that at times, she felt “hypocritical” being in a relationship with Steven. (As a long-time socialist, Ellen uses her social media accounts to post anti.Conservative Party messages, memes about the failures of capitalism and support of anti-racist organizations.) Her and Steven, however, had been childhood friends, having grown up in the same small town in the south of England, the kind of place where families all know each other, drink at the same pub and play soccer on Sundays. .I knew he had some controversial views before we started going out,. Ellen explains. .Maybe that should have been a warning. But we also had a family history. He worked in my mom’s office. And to me, he was always the attractive guy next door..

Nor did Ellen pay much attention to Steven’s views when they first started dating in early 2017. At the time, she was a university student, and he was between jobs with aspirations to work in finance. .He was interested in conspiracy theories . the kind of thing that most guys are into . and I actually felt that most of his .anti-establishment. persona leant more to the left.” Steven enjoyed talking about these theories with Ellen, and Ellen was happy to discuss them with him. .I enjoyed the intellectual side of the relationship,. she says.

Translation, his insanities made him hawt. Conspiracy theorists have the best pickup lines!

Things changed quickly, however, when, according to Ellen, Steven returned to their hometown after losing his job in London. With few friends around him and Ellen at university, he spent the majority of his time online, learning how to trade foreign currency via obscure blogs and YouTube tutorials before wading into more political waters. .It started off fairly mild,. Ellen says, with a slight laugh. .He would WhatsApp me Jordan Peterson lectures about “social justice warriors” on university campuses. Sometimes I’d just ignore them, or say that I didn’t agree with what they were saying. Eventually, he moved on to more extreme material. He would send me videos by Stefan Molyneux about the links between race and IQ, or how it was scientifically proven that Conservative women were more attractive and left-wing women like me were fat and ugly..

Heehee. That’s because only conservative women value being attractive to men. Burn!.. that body hair!

Ellen thinks some of Steven’s behavior was born out of wanting to be provocative, but she also says that as he spent more time alone, the deeper he got stuck in this rabbit hole. .I didn’t know any of these right-wing characters until we started dating, and he kept sending me videos from them,. she tells me. .I had to learn about what they were saying, quickly, so that I could try to debunk his view, or at least challenge them. And usually when we would debate these topics, it would end up in tears.” That’s because, .When I would try refute him, he would flip out. He would say that I was hysterical, that I was stupid and acting on my emotions rather than the facts, that I didn’t want to open up my mind to anything other than my left-wing views..

“He” flipped out? Come on, now. Be honest.

.While most Red Pill groups tend to focus on single men, there are sub-groups like Married Red Pill where men who are married are trying to get their wives to see the world in the way they do,. says Julia Ebner, a research fellow at the Institute for Strategic Dialogue and author of The Rage: The Vicious Circle of Islamist and Far-Right Extremism. .A lot of the time that will be influenced by things the men see on social media, but also the images that these kinds of groups [conjure] up. They use a lot of iconography from the 1950s to advocate for “traditional” families and “traditional” gender roles, and they’re using new technologies to try achieve that..

Julia Ebner on BBC Panorama - ISD

There’s a shortage of pretty girls in the world. It’s a shame that Julia got educated.

Similarly, they provide guides on how to better convince skeptical or unwilling partners of the husband or boyfriend’s newfound beliefs. .These guides provide resources and subjects designed to help ease their partners into Red Pill ideologies,. Ebner explains. .Some of the tips employ techniques like neuro-linguistic programming to achieve this, or other aggressive “psychological techniques” that are common in pick-up artist communities..

Though the various techniques differ, Ebner suggests that the goal is the same: By recruiting women to the movement, they gain more legitimacy.

Dangit, that’s the third blown fuse in the clueless meter. Red Pill has no legitimacy because it has no female approval for its claims that society only cares about women!

* * * * *

Ellen and Steven have now broken up. She has blocked him across all her social media accounts, and goes back home much less than she used to. Surprisingly, though, it wasn’t Ellen who broke up with Steven. After another fight over right-wing YouTube videos he sent her, he ended the relationship, claiming that Ellen was no longer intellectually stimulating for him. In fact, she was an “idiot” who was incapable of understanding the “facts” that are right in front of her.

She was left heartbroken. .I gave my whole self to him, to try help him, to support him. I compromised so much of my convictions and beliefs to help HIM. And he rejected all of it for these YouTube people. He rejected one of the only genuine relationships he had..

For Sarah, similar feelings remain. Though she hasn’t been in contact with Craig for several months, reminders of him are everywhere, especially when she works on the computer they once shared. .I was listening to Coldplay when I was cleaning the other day,. she laughs. “And the next video YouTube had scheduled for me was one of these right-wing talk shows in America about how abortion clinics are being secretly funded by George Soros. I see these kind of videos on my recommended pages all the time..

It turns out she can’t seem to escape them either.

Because nothing is both sexier and more threatening to a woman than a man who knows his value. (Per Rollo Tomassi.)

 

Good False Flags Are Hard To Find

I didn’t find many stories about the Womens’ Marches lately but this article was interesting. Is it a near-miss or manufactured nonissue?

27-year-old man, citing virginity and constant rejections, threatened to kill ‘as many girls as I see’

https://abcnews.go.com/beta-story-container/US/27-year-citing-virginity-constant-rejections-threatened-kill/story?id=60532843

By Karma Allen, 21 January 2019

Police arrested a Colorado man over the weekend who allegedly threatened to kill “as many girls as I see” in a mass shooting.

Christopher Cleary, 27, allegedly told police that he planned targeting women in a public shooting because he’s a virgin who has been rejected too many times, according to the Provo Police Department.

He told police he was planning to commit a mass murder? Nobody who does that is actually planning a mass murder.

Police located Cleary in Provo, Utah, on Saturday and questioned him in connection with various threats made online, including one in which he allegedly said he was “planning on shooting up a public place soon,” according to a probable cause statement.

“All I wanted was to be loved, yet no one cares about me,” he wrote in a Facebook post, according to police. “I’m 27 years old and I’ve never had a girlfriend before and I’m still a virgin, this is why I’m planning on shooting up a public place soon and being the next mass shooter.”

That statement is as plausible as Nancy Pelosi demanding a border wall. But what’s his motive for blatant self-incrimination?

Police said the investigation concerned several agencies in Colorado.

“An additional concern had to do with several Women’s Marches taking place in various locations throughout the state today, including a march in Provo, and another in Salt Lake City,” the arresting officer wrote in a statement. “The Probation Office contacted me and let me know that this is a pattern of behavior with Cleary.”

Cleary, who was on probation for stalking and threatening a woman, was arrested for violating probation and making threats of terrorism, according to police.

He allegedly admitted to making the threats while in custody, telling officers he was upset and not thinking clearly when he did so, police said in the statement.

This guy was known for poor attitude towards women and was actually on parole when he got picked up for terrorist threats on Facebook and then told police, in custody, that he was a killer waiting to happen. Hmm.

Cleary also made suicidal comments and told investigators that he had some kind of “impulse disorder,” according to the statement.

Either Cleary was a false flag who couldn’t work up the courage for more than harmless statements or police picked up a known troublemaker on parole as a safety precaution. What can physiognomy tell us?

 Christopher Wayne Cleary is pictured in this undated photo released by Utah County Sheriff's office.

Chris Cleary. Disorderly hair for disorderly thoughts. Ears seem neither flattened nor prominent. His forehead is weird, it’s like an eraser was rubbed across the middle of it. I don’t know. Wide eyebrows can indicate a lax, unplanned attitude towards life.

The right (outward-looking) eyebrow is considerably higher than the left, suggesting he’s emotionally vulnerable to the outside world. Upper and lower eyelids are rounded so more emotional than rational in outlook. Nose is upturned for mildly positive sociability; unsure about the nostrils but they certainly aren’t large enough for generosity.

The Chinese say that a man with a higher right eyebrow will be henpecked in marriage. Maybe Chris doesn’t really want what he wants.

Mouth is obviously that of a pessimist… again, notably on the right side. The philtrum, vertical lines running from the cupid’s bow of the mouth to the nasal septum, is present so there’s sexual energy but the lines aren’t far apart, which would have denoted strong sexual energy.

I can believe he’s unlucky at love and has some mental baggage. He isn’t faking his attitude towards women so as insane as telling the cops IN PERSON that he wanted to kill is, that’s probably what happened. His physiognomy does not appear to be organized enough to do anything planned but there’s always the chance for a mental “wardrobe malfunction”.

So, Chris got picked up and da wimminz marched in safety. A cautionary tale of what happens when one does not adjust to the inevitable rocks of misfortune, hard as adjusting can be. If women don’t like you then walk away. Find something else to do. You’ll only enter a death spiral by demanding acceptance from people who have already rejected you. Life is too short and cellblocks too small for holding grudges.

 

 

Why Whites Hate Whites, A Monkey’s Perspective

This is a very insightful video by Turd Flinging Monkey.

To summarize, he believes that it’s generally unnatural for people to refer to themselves by race. It’s usually by nation. I’m American, he’s English, she’s Australian. We’re all white but that’s not normally the way we think of ourselves; there’s significant differences between USA, UK and AUS even when we’re the same language and religion. Similarly, in America the blacks are “the blacks” because they don’t know what nation they’re from. Nigeria? Congo? Tunisia? When they do know, they’re known by their nation, for example the Somalis infesting Minnesota.

Similarly, the Jews were “the Jews” because Israel didn’t exist. Now that it’s returned, there’s a big difference between Israelis who have skin in the game of nationalism and Jews who see themselves as a nation-independent voting bloc.

Why do globalist whites betray nationalist whites? Because they’re Team Global attacking Team USA. They don’t consider themselves Americans and therefore will savage America at will and whim. As was the case in medieval Europe, when whites regularly went to war against whites because France is not Prussia is not Italy. It only looks like intraracial war because across the planet, the war is now between globalism and nationalism.

This leads to the prediction that by the time white peoples finally discover a common racial identity, we won’t have any nation to call our own.

We already knew that the loss of one’s nation is the loss of ones’ identity. “White”, “brown”, “Asian” and so on are either oversimplifications for bureaucratic necessity or default identities when we can’t name the culture we identify with.

And the Elites are pushing miscegenation so we won’t even have skin to differentiate us. Generic cattle for the slaughter. True NPCs.

In return, the best way to counter the Elites is to hold on to your culture/nation or at least adopt one. Understand it, celebrate it and be familiar with it. They would rather you forget.

For the Founders… and toga parties!

The Cult of Nice is the most popular religion in America. Don’t hurt anybody’s feelings, especially if they’re neither American nor Christian, unless wimminz claim to be victimized by them. But all is not well in Niceland. The priests have noticed a great surge of civil unrest and wish to remind everybody that polite discourse requires constant goodthink.

Be nice again, America, national group urges

https://www.oregonlive.com/politics/2019/01/be-nice-again-america-national-group-urges.html

By Washington Post, 12 Jan 2019

WASHINGTON — A president slams a table and walks out of a meeting. A longtime Congressman consistently makes racist comments. A gubernatorial candidate threatens to stomp on his opponent’s face with golf spikes. Family members no longer speak because of political differences. Twitter fights. Cable news panels filled with shouting.

I doubt the president walking out of a meeting belongs on that list.

While it might seem that civility has been completely lost in politics and significantly eroded in both public and private life, one organization is trying to push back against the tsunami of toxicity and contention sweeping the country. It’s a development that, according to polls, Americans desperately want.

Only one organization is doing what Americans desperately want? That would be California’s Howard Jarvis Tax Foundation engaging in conservative politics because Cali Republicans have quit the field.

The National Institute for Civil Discourse is urging Americans to be respectful of one another again. The institute and its new executive director, Keith Allred, are behind a push to engage elected officials and citizens toward civility at a time when discourse is degrading, with the hope that people will remember how to disagree with one another in good faith.

Thank God the acronym is NICD, not E. I was this close to quoting from CS Lewis’ That Hideous Strength.

Keith Allred does not appear to be related to Gloria Allred, notorious feminazi.

“It’s not the difference of opinion on policy that makes us bitter,” Allred said. “But thinking they’re a bad person.”

A double miss. The West’s problem is a surplus of niceness, not a lack. There is no common ground between Christ and Satan; we should never have pretended there was, and neither should Allred.

Allred created the group CommonSense American, a bipartisan organization that weighs in on issues such as immigration and campaign finance reform. It is a national offshoot of a group he created in Idaho, which worked with the state legislature. The group’s staff creates policy papers it sends to citizen members, who then contact their elected officials. The goal is to arm people with information about various topics, and have them weigh in with elected officials in an authentic way, without the use of canned talking points or vitriol.

Another Non-Government Organization, working in partnership with Government, to set policy that all citizen members must be properly educated in how to communicate respectfully with Party elected officials. By the sacred boot heel of Saint Orwell, put a fig leaf over your abomination!

The institute has gone into communities to train more than 12,000 people in civil discourse and has been hosting more than 500 “civility conversations” nationwide, part of statewide initiatives in Arizona, Iowa, Maine and Ohio.

“We’ve polarized not only our political discussion, but our personal interactions,” said former Congressman Jim Kolbe, R-Ariz., who is on the organization’s advisory board.

This is the False Ally tactic. The Right has an uncivil attitude because the Left has uncivil behavior.

Normie: Okay, I let you win on this. Now let me win on that, as agreed.

SJW: Screw you, chump. *total betrayal, victory party in the NY Times building*.

Normie: Screw you back! I will never trust you again.

Allred: Whoa there, Normie, you have serious trust issues! Let’s work through those at my reeducation seminar… for you, half price!

Putting people of differing views together is more crucial than ever, said Carolyn Lukensmeyer, a former executive director of the group. As people retreat into their corners on social media and increasingly live in places where they are surrounded by the like-minded, talking to those on the opposite side of political arguments often doesn’t happen.

Some of us would be going on killing sprees if we didn’t have our last few, remaining congregations of like-minded people. What if Nice behavior requires Not-Nice outlets for verbal frustration?

Lukensmeyer said the efforts have included weekly discussions at breweries and coffee shops among people holding differing views. The institute has filmed interactions between people with differing backgrounds and opinions to show how they can respectfully disagree and find common ground. It is looking for a streaming service to distribute the series.

Respectful disagreement is mutually exclusive with finding common ground.

“Once they’re in an environment where they meet, they have more in common than expected,” she said.

Sure. Democrats want to win and Republicans want to lose. If they can look past the frustrated screams of Normal Americans then there’s a lot of common ground to be discovered.

Polls show that Americans want to see a return to civility. Ninety-one percent of registered voters said the lack of civility in politics is a “serious problem,” according to a 2018 Quinnipiac University poll. Sixty-eight percent of those surveyed in a Pew Research poll from July said it was “essential” for people in high political offices to maintain a tone of civility and respect in politics.

Tom Daschle, D-S.D., the former House Majority Leader and a member of the institute’s board, said the fate of America rests on a return to civility, both in politics and public life.

“It’s about keeping this republic,” he said.

It’s about whitewashing the ugly history of these former Congressmen, more likely. One can imagine the likes of Daschle wanting to repackage their treacherous conduct as incivility and miscommunications rather than selling out their countries for fun and profit.

A finding that ninety-one percent of registered voters agreeing that America’s serious problem is people not thinking nice thoughts about their leaders works to confirm that. Perhaps selling one’s soul for a retirement dacha in the woods isn’t such a good deal, after all.

To nudge along elected officials, the institute created a program called Next Generation, in which it shows state legislators how to work across the aisle. Despite its intense polarization, Congress even has a civility caucus, with members visiting one another’s districts to see what life is like and to learn from a different set of constituents.

God, thank you for Trump. He’s been so effective that Cuckservatives are signing up for remedial lessons in “how to reach across the aisle”. They’ve forgotten how to lose and 2020 is coming!

The group was founded in 2011, months after a shooting in Tucson that killed six people and wounded 13, including former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz. Days before she was shot, Giffords had discussed creating an organization at the University of Arizona to study how to make conversations about politics more civil.

The shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, was declared unfit for trial because of paranoid schizophrenia. A class in Niceness could not possibly have prevented the incident, neither was the motive a desire to be rude. (After a year of forced medication, Loughner plead guilty to avoid Arizona’s death penalty.)

Nice mug, Jared. We were just talking about the split-face thing last post. Heh, per Wikipedia: [Loughner] attempted to buy additional ammunition for the pistol at a Walmart on the morning of the shooting, but the clerk refused to sell it to him based on his appearance and demeanor. Physiognomy is real.

Citing this incident as a founding motivation for reconciliation between White America and White America’s Destroyers reeks of partisan politics. I didn’t find a scorecard on NICD or CommonSense America’s results but it’s a safe guess that very few of their interventions ended with Leftoids admitting that Trump has valid points about America’s need for a wall.

Now for Keith Allred.

https://www.thecommoninterest.org/about-us/leadership/keith-allred/

Keith Allred… earned a BA in American History at Stanford and a Ph.D. at UCLA. An internationally recognized expert in negotiation and conflict resolution, he was a professor at Columbia University for three years before joining the faculty at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government where he taught for seven years. Since moving back to Idaho, Keith has continued to teach in short programs for senior public and private sector executives at Harvard and Oxford. He was the 2004-2005 Church Distinguished Professor of Public Policy at BSU.

As a professional mediator, Keith has helped manage and resolve many disputes, particularly focusing on conflicts unique to the American West including disputes involving public lands, hydroelectric dams, water, and Indian tribes.

…An active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he served a mission to northern Germany and has served as a bishop twice.

Bishop of the Church of Nice, anyway. Mormonism means Allred has no skin in America’s survival as the nation of the Founders, which frees him to play the “can’t we all just get along?” game. A professional concern troll.

Keith Allred's Issue Positions (Political Courage Test ...

His face shape–squarish head with pointed chin, large cheekbones–is one people easily accept for leadership. No intelligence or determination lines on the forehead, uncommon for that level of education but his studies weren’t exactly quantum physics. His mind is orderly, however; no frizzy hair or poor hygeine.

An SJW near-miss, his college-induced lack of objectivity enabled him to leverage his social skills and logical mindset into a profitable career of negotiation and arbitration. I would prefer a mediator with a large lower third to his face, denoting practical focus, over a large upper third, denoting intelligence. An intelligent mediator is likely to be a manipulative mediator, steering events to the goal he’s already chosen.

 

Proctor & Gamble’s Judas: Robert McDonald

You heard about the Gillette Company going full retard with its recent anti-masculinity advertisement. But you didn’t hear why they would do such a stupid derp. I can put a face on the reason… a pedoface! Meet the CEO of Gillette’s parent company:

CEO in Action: Robert McDonald- The Procter & Gamble Company

Obama Taps Former Procter & Gamble CEO Robert McDonald to Lead Veteran Affairs

P&G Launches New D&I Strategy

Critical to our growth strategy is diversity and inclusion. As a company, our continued success and growth is dependent upon a deep understanding of the diversity of our consumers. To do this, our employee population must reflect the diversity of our markets and consumers. This helps us have empathy for them. Empathy leads to life-improving innovations.

Innovation is connecting two seemingly unconnected ideas. Diversity provides the disparate nodes to connect. We purposely try to put diverse groups of people together to create more opportunities for innovation. There is a correlation between the diversity of our organization, our innovative capability, and our ability to realize our purpose of improving lives. This is how we develop the brands and communications that resonate with the people we serve and want to serve.

I am a firm believer that diversity and inclusion is a competitive advantage for our organization and I am personally committed to continuing to foster a culture of inclusion at P&G. We have no hope of touching and improving the lives of the world’s consumers if we don’t first begin with touching and improving the lives of P&G employees.
About a year ago, we launched P&G.s global diversity and inclusion strategy. With the new strategy, we took three new steps:

1) Appointed a Chief Diversity Officer to oversee the Global Diversity & Inclusion Strategy (Linda Clement- Holmes).

P&G CIO Linda Clement-Holmes

A sexually damaged and feral woman–shaved head and hyphenated last name, respectively. But Lesbo Negress is high on the Diversity Totem and that’s what counts. Let’s segue into this Board Room Annie Oakley with two excerpts from this interview:

https://www.forbes.com/sites/peterhigh/2015/10/19/linda-clement-holmes-ascends-to-cio-role-at-pg-with-board-level-membership-already-in-hand

When I was the diversity officer, we spent a lot of time talking about unconscious bias. We spent a lot of time with a professor out of Harvard, and her whole premise is around dealing with unconscious bias. …

When you think about it, particularly from a gender standpoint, culturally and socially women tend to carry more of the burden socially when it comes to the household. Whether that is right or wrong, that is not the point, but socially that tends to be the case. If you translate that then to the workforce, and you think about it as women and men on the same starting line of the race, a male employee may have a spouse at home taking care of everything and they may have the same skills of the woman on the starting line. The woman may begin the race wearing a backpack, which contains arms and legs of kids and husbands and other kinds of things, even if there is somebody at home helping out. It is a social dynamic that we live in culturally as well. If you think about taking that backpack off that woman, think about how fast they would be. By nature, gender-wise, women have a lot of capacity to be able to carry things. Getting people to think differently about it is what I do a lot of times.

Women are heavily burdened by their family, think of how fast they’d be if they took off that “weight”? What a horrible image of family life she has. But wait, she’s all about her kids:

Most of my [boardroom] experience prior to Cincinnati Financial had been on non-profit boards. A lot of that had to do with personal passion more than anything else. Because I believe in making choices, for years because I had two sons, I would only work on boards that I could do with them or for them. If it had to do with children, that is what I would do. It just so happens, I was also usually the IT person on the board as well. What it gave me was the opportunity to learn what it was like to be the IT person, or see what the IT operations were like, at a company other than P&G that does not have the resources that we do. The way I normally would do things was totally different. I had to learn that they could not do it that way because they did not have the same resources. You learn that from a non-profit. At the same time, you also learn the things that are not IT related, which is important when moving to the for-profit world.

She worked at nonprofits because she cared about her deadweight children holding her back from greatness? And she learned to do IT the goodfeelz way rather than the technical competence way. Proctor & Gamble, meet Equifax.

Returning to previous article:

2) Added key focus on inclusion, with aim to maintain a diverse workforce, a diverse leadership pipeline, inspiring employees to perform at their peak, knowing that they are included, respected and valued.

None of which is related to making good products.

3) Created global Inclusion and Diversity Council, with the aim to renew our overall Diversity & Inclusion efforts, measure results against our goals, and drive accountability throughout the organization.

Externally, we want to be and be recognized as a global leader in diversity and inclusion. Internally, we want to ensure we are fostering a culture of inclusion so that diversity is culturally embedded in all we do.

I am inspired each day by the ways P&G employees are putting their passion behind our diversity and inclusion strategy and bringing it to life. As we continue to embrace diversity and truly make it a part of all we do, the results of the company will be inseparable from the characteristics of diversity that make up our global operations. This is how we will continue touching and improving lives, now and for generations to come.

When an entryist reaches the top these days, it’s like a volcanic explosion of Convergence. The SJWs are entirely done with pretenses.

https://news.pg.com/blog/bob-mcdonald/bob-mcdonald-named-chair-us-china-business-council

Dated 6 June 2012

During his acceptance speech, McDonald remarked, .I am very honored to take on the role of chair of the US-China Business Council. The Council is fortunate to have a strong and diverse Board of Directors and the engagement of a large number of American companies involved with China. We all share a common vision to build and strengthen the bonds between China and the United States – two great nations with the two largest economies on earth that are mutually and positively interdependent..

He’s an enemy of the United States. More on McDonald from Wikipedia:

On July 7, 2014, U.S. President Obama nominated McDonald to the Cabinet position of United States Secretary of Veterans Affairs. Obama cited McDonald’s business background with P&G and experience revitalizing organizations in his decision. … McDonald was approved by the United States Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs and the full Senate by unanimous vote.

That looks like a major conflict of interest, the CEO of a pharmaceuticals giant transitioning to head of the VA system.

One of McDonald’s first decisions in September 2014 was to increase salaries for physicians and dentists to close the pay gap with the private sector and to make VA an employer of choice. McDonald personally visited several medical schools to recruit new medical personnel in the early months of his tenure at VA. As of June 2015, VA had increased onboard staff by more 12,000 including over 1,000 physicians, 2,700 nurses, and 4,600 other select critical occupations.

He threw money at the problem. Typical bureaucrat.

On February 23, 2015, McDonald admitted he misspoke trying to engage a homeless veteran on January 30, 2015, about his serving in the U.S. Army Special Forces, a conversation that was recorded by a CBS television news crew accompanying him during a nationwide count of homeless veterans. “I have no excuse, I was not in the special forces” he told The Huffington Post, which first broke the story.

This seems to be the only Stolen Valor incident in his past but he still likes to mention his West Point education and Army Ranger qualification.

On May 23, 2016, Secretary McDonald stated that Disney does not measure wait times at its amusement parks, arguing that VA wait times are not an important measure. This statement was viewed as both insensitive to patients and incorrect, as Disney does measure wait times. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan criticized McDonald’s comments on Twitter and in a blog post, saying, “This is not make-believe, Mr. Secretary. Veterans have died waiting in those lines.” He apologized the next day.

At the time, wait lines for veterans were 7 days for primary care and 10 days for specialists. But McDonald repeatedly went on record opposing the privatization of the VA.

To see what sprouted from McDonald’s Diversity seeds, we go now to P&G’s 2018 Citizenship Report. Boldfaces are mine. (Dear God, did You put George Orwell among the Prophets?)

Click to access pg_citizenship_report_2018.pdf

CEO’s Introduction

We made significant progress in each area of P&G.s Citizenship work in fiscal year 2018, and we continue to actively build Citizenship into how we deliver our business results. …

We continue to make positive impact in each area of Citizenship: Ethics & Corporate Responsibility, Community Impact, Diversity & Inclusion, Gender Equality and Environmental Sustainability. Importantly, our efforts in these areas support nearly every objective outlined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

-Along with our NGO relief partners, we helped those impacted by disasters around the world. For example, we provided more than 2,000 personal care kits and washed more than 2,300 loads of laundry to help those impacted by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. We also activated our emergency response efforts to aid victims of the earthquake in Mexico and assisted with Syrian refugees in France, Germany and Turkey. And while this report is on a fiscal year basis, it’s important to note that we’re actively involved in relief efforts for those affected by recent natural disasters in the U.S. and Indonesia.

-We increased representation for women, now at 46% of all P&G managers globally, and we increased our U.S. representation and workplace satisfaction of African Ancestry, Hispanic and Asian Pacific American employees.

We used our voice in advertising to promote important conversations about a full range of equality, diversity and inclusion topics with the “The Talk,. .Love Over Bias. and “The Words Matter.. We sparked important conversations to motivate positive change along racial, ethnic, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability and gender lines.

And now an infamous Gillette commercial. Nobody noticed when P&G was sucking up to women & non-Whites, telling them how special they were, but openly hating White Men has thankfully had a different effect. Now for various excerpts:

Message from Shailesh Jejurikar

.This year, we took a major step in renewing our commitment to environmental sustainability. In April, we launched new, ambitious goals for 2030 that focus on where we know we can make the most meaningful difference.our brands, supply chain, society and employees. We’ve already achieved many of our 2020 goals, and we’re committed to stay on track so we can deliver the remaining goals. However, achieving these goals is not enough. We know our stakeholders want and expect more. With our global reach, our understanding of the five billion people we serve and our innovation and supply chain capabilities, we have a unique ability to drive positive impact in the world. We can be a force for good and a force for growth, but we know we cannot do this alone. We will partner with consumers, industry, governments, civil society groups and academics so that, together, we can make an even greater impact..

They don’t call it Convergence for nothing. Blur all the lines until no possible resistance is left!

Our Commitment to Respect Human Rights

In 2014, P&G published its Human Rights Policy Statement that communicates our
support for the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, which are
drawn from and reinforce the principles of internationally recognized human rights
consisting of: those rights expressed in the International Bill of Human Rights (i.e., Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenants on
Economic, Social and Cultural Rights; and Civil and Political Rights) and the principles
concerning fundamental rights as set out in the International Labor Organization (ILO)
Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.

We recognize that it is the sovereign state’s duty to protect against human rights abuses by establishing and upholding appropriate laws and policies. We also recognize that some states do not have adequate legal and regulatory frameworks, enforcement mechanisms or have laws that conflict with these internationally recognized human rights. Wherever this is the case, we will always try to do the right thing by respecting human rights consistently across our global operations. We expect these same commitments to be shared by our business partners, and we strongly encourage our business partners to share these same expectations with their business partners.

These Non-Government Organizations are sure handy for helping governments rule like Good Citizens.

Using Our Voice: Generation of Firsts

Our Always brand continues to tackle societal barriers for women around the world. Saudi Arabia is at the cusp of transformation as Saudi women are coming into their own, challenging expectations in careers and at home. In April 2018, Always launched the “Generation of Firsts” campaign, which celebrates Saudi women achievers. Through this campaign, Always is supporting women to embrace being the first to achieve a career ideal that had been traditionally challenged. The film was made with not only an all-Saudi cast and crew, but with an all-female Saudi cast and crew.an unprecedented undertaking. The film was viewed more than 1.5 million times and generated a social media flurry with more than 1000 stories, pictures and videos of Saudi girls proudly posting what they were the first in their families to accomplish.

I never thought to feel sorry for those Christian-murdering jihadists but feminism found a way. Hmm, it looks like Gillette isn’t the only brand weaponized against masculinity:

Ariel France

By highlighting the important role parents play in role modelling, this Ariel ad challenges the idea that laundry is a woman’s job. French authorities have called it “the first time that an ad explicitly points to sharing responsibilities in the home. It is an evolution of our society..

Revolution, people. The correct term is revolution. These are the French. They don’t “evolve” anything. Ask the Yellow Vests.

Joy Japan

In Japan, while 60% of married couples today have careers, 90% of household work is performed by women. .Sharing the housework . job to JOY. encourages family members to talk about sharing chores and uses male and female perspectives to tell a compelling story.

Do you know what most women do when they get jobs? Housekeeping, child care, nursing, cooking… the same things they’d do at home for nothing.

Olay North America

From being told they are “too emotional” to “too ambitious,. women constantly face conflicting expectations for how they should look, feel or behave. An Olay campaign is ready to put an end to that by encouraging women to “Face Anything.

Another case of P&G putting itself out of business. What will happen if P&G convinces women to not care about their appearance? Women will stop buying cosmetics such as Olay. It’s no different from the Gillette ads implying that Real Men don’t have enough testosterone to be able to shave.

Olay China

Olay is encouraging all women to be fearless about their age, using meaningful numbers instead of years to tell their story: .59., for instance, because she has won 59 championships, or .8., because she has been a singer for 8 years.

China wimminz would be better advised to do the Baby Boomer style:

Using Our Voice: Sesame Street Muppets Fuel Girls. Aspirations

Chamki is a vibrant, five-year-old girl Muppet on Galli Galli Sim Sim, the Indian version of Sesame Street. Chamki loves school and dreams of becoming a scientist one day. The Growing Up Chamki series airing on TV in India explores issues of gender equity in child-relevant ways, with girls and boys role-playing different careers and family roles. This teaches girls and boys alike that they can aspire to be anything they want to be.

P&G partnered with Sesame Workshop to produce the episodes and make them available to Sesame Street co-productions around the world, aiming to set a new expectation that values girls. education, so that both boys and girls can reach their full potential. Empowering girls is critically important because they face barriers boys do not. Early marriage, gender discrimination, lack of adequate sanitation and differences in how parents value education for girls versus boys often keeps girls from enrolling and staying in school.

Fuck off and die, Proctor & Gamble, for mutilating my childhood memories of Sesame Street.

P&G will continue to support Sesame Workshop, local educators and producers in developing engaging, inspiring female Muppet characters around the world. These characters appeal to both children and adults, and they encourage audiences to respect girls, appreciate their diverse likes and dislikes, advocate for their education and support their dreams.planting the seeds for societal change. …From Chamki in India to Zari in Afghanistan and Lola in Latin America, these, and other girl Muppets, have become the most popular characters among girls and boys alike.

FUCK OFF AND DIE!!! Nothing is sacred to you! No race, no culture, not even the innocence of children!

Men Advocating Real Change

At P&G, we believe that the requisite skills to succeed as leaders in 2018 and beyond include the ability to be empathetic and inclusive. Given the critical role men play in advancing women and in achieving gender equality, we have partnered with Catalyst on their MARC. (Men Advocating Real Change) initiative. Through this effort men better understand the impact that stereotypes, unconscious bias and male-dominant culture have on women’s career progression. In less than two years, MARC workshops have reached almost 800 P&G managers across more than 15 countries, with plans to expand further in 2019. Several other Fortune 500 companies, invited to join the P&G-hosted workshops, have been inspired to launch their own MARC initiatives.

And so it goes. Proctor & Gamble is a fully converged monstrosity of national government subversion to U.N. principles. As for their actual products, this report documents how sustainable their product lines are being made rather than how popular or competitive they might be. Honestly, what kind of pathetic mangina cares if the recycled plastic of his shampoo bottle is 10% ocean trash-sourced?

Ever-higher prices with neither Whites nor Men welcome. I do not see a bright future for P&G.

 

 

Doctor Doom Spoke Truth To Power

Coming to my attention a year late is Marc “Dr. Doom” Faber, an eccentric economist, low-quality prophet and awesome, kick-ass pundit. Doom was Converged out of his work in October 2017 for unrepentant race realism.

‘Dr. Doom’ Faber: ‘Thank God white people populated America’

https://www.cnbc.com/2017/10/17/dr-doom-faber-thank-god-white-people-populated-america.html

Market doomsayer Marc “Dr. Doom” Faber has launched a racially charged diatribe in his latest newsletter, alleging that the U.S. is great primarily because it is ruled by white people.

The eccentric Gloom, Boom & Doom report author, who often speaks on CNBC and other financial media, generally forecasting some type of market downturn, focused his latest comments on the racial conflicts happening around the country.

(A CNBC spokesperson said it will not book him in the future.)

How mature of them. The only thing worse than CNBC punishing a man for speaking well of its own white customers is the fact that many of those white customers probably couldn’t accept the compliment at face value:

“And thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks. Otherwise, the US would look like Zimbabwe, which it might look like one day anyway, but at least America enjoyed 200 years in the economic and political sun under a white majority,” he wrote.

“I am not a racist, but the reality . no matter how politically incorrect . needs to be spelled out.”

Reached for comment via email, Faber did not back away from his statements to CNBC.

Yes, this is how you do it. Speak truth and do not apologize. Doom still got deplatformed but that was the worst the SJWs could do to him.

“If stating some historical facts makes me a racist, then I suppose that I am a racist. For years, Japanese were condemned because they denied the Nanking massacre,” he told CNBC in an email.

In the newsletter, Faber’s comments address the confrontation in Charlottesville, Virginia, directly. Protesters clashed in August over a white nationalist rally called Unite the Right in Charlottesville, where officials were debating the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue from the University of Virginia campus.

The violence sparked a national debate over race and monuments that honor prominent Confederate figures that Faber decided to weigh in on.

Faber called the monuments “statues of honourable people whose only crime was to defend what all societies had done for more than 5,000 years: keep a part of the population enslaved.”

Ouch. Putting aside the fact that the War of Northern Aggression wasn’t about slavery, Faber has an excellent point. Most societies are at least partly feminized and women don’t accept equality. All men are either above them or below them, and the easiest way for a man to be sexy is to cut down all the men around him. This is the driving force behind slavery in all of its history and forms.

Per Wikipedia, Faber was subsequently asked to resign from the boards of Ivanhoe Mines, Sprott Inc. and NovaGold Resources. U.S-based Sunshine Silver Mining Corp, Vietnam Growth Fund managed by Dragon Capital, and Indochina Capital Corporation also dismissed him, Faber told Reuters. CNBC, Fox Business, and Bloomberg TV said that they do not plan to book Faber in the future. Faber continues to stand by his remarks.

His article isn’t available on the Internet but Business Insider published the relevant excerpt:

https://www.businessinsider.com/marc-faber-investment-letter-white-people-blacks-confederate-statues-2017-10

In the October edition of his report, which is available only in print and was seen by Business Insider, Faber focused on the economic policies of major governments.

In a section of the report discussing “Free Markets and Capitalism Versus Socialism,” Faber variously decried the tearing down of Confederate monuments as well as what he called the “liberal media” and New York City’s “righteous socialist” mayor, Bill de Blasio.

Faber said contemporary society focused too much on issues like the monuments rather than on issues such as the growing amount of outstanding debt and “unfunded government pension liabilities.” The report then went into an aside regarding his thoughts on the Confederate monuments.

From the report:

I don’t want to enter into a serious discussion of the tearing down of monuments of historical personalities, but I cannot omit mentioning how the liberal hypocrites condemned the Taliban when they blew up the world’s two largest standing Buddhas (one of them 165 feet high), situated at the foot of the Hindu Kush mountains of central Afghanistan, in 2001. But the very same people are now disturbed by statues of honourable people whose only crime was to defend what all societies had done for more than 5,000 years: keep a part of the population enslaved. And thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks. Otherwise, the US would look like Zimbabwe, which it might look like one day anyway, but at least America enjoyed 200 years in the economic and political sun under a white majority. I am not a racist, but the reality . no matter how politically incorrect . needs to be spelled out as well. (And let’s not forget that the African tribal heads were more than happy to sell their own slaves to white, black, and Arab slave dealers.)

Well, THAT clears the picture. He didn’t just thank God for White America, he outed the SJWs as hypocritical terrorists and remembered that Black Americans were originally sold into slavery by their own people. Doctor Doom bit the hand that fed him but it was likely coming anyway. Some of his economic predictions from Wikipedia:

Faber is credited for advising his clients to get out of the stock market before the October 1987 crash.

So, he did have accomplishments early in his pundit career.

In 2000s … In December 2008, Faber said, “I think a recovery will not come in the next couple of years, maybe in five, 10 years’ time”. Subsequently, the S&P 500 index rose by 48% from 865.58 on January 1, 2009 to 1282.62 on January 1, 2011.

In 2009, Faber predicted with 100% confidence that the Federal Reserve’s policy of keeping interest rates near zero would lead to hyperinflation approaching levels seen in Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe’s inflation rate reached 89 sextillion percent in a previous report.

It seems Faber also accurately predicted the 2010 housing bubble. What he didn’t predict was the lengths the Obama administration went to in order to prop up those insolvent banks. While the S&P 500 Index gained 50%, I worked five different jobs to put food on my table.

In 2012, Faber claimed that there was a “100% chance” of a global economic recession later that year or in early 2013. Subsequently, the average world product grew steadily by 3.4% in each of 2012, 2013 and 2014, and 3.5% in 2015.

In 2012, Faber predicted that the S&P 500 index would fall at least 20% within 6.9 months following the re-election of Barack Obama.[19] Subsequently, the S&P 500 index rose from a low of 1359.88 on November 16, 2012 to 1480.40 as of January 1, 2013, 1570.70 on April 1, 2013 (up 15% from the November low, 6 months after Faber’s prediction), 1668.68 on July 1, 2013 (up 22% from the November 2012 low) and 1783.54 on November 1, 2013 (up 31%).

After those impressive banking gains during America’s Second Great Depression, these statistics have been cooked beyond all possibility of accurately measuring economic reality.

On March 27, 2013, Faber said that the U.S. is creating nowhere-to-hide bubbles in many emerging economies such as Indonesia, Philippines, and Thailand (up four times from 2009 lows).

On September 23, 2014, Faber said we have “bubbles everywhere”.

Those banking gains had to come from somewhere. Maybe Doctor Doom was a better predictor of “economics assuming no globalist intervention”:

On January 14, 2015, Faber predicted that gold prices will rise by 30% in 2015. Gold prices subsequently fell by 14% from $1234 on January 14, 2015 to $1060 on December 31, 2015.

Gold is a famous hedge against inflation and uncertainty. Per the following website, gold stayed high in 2015 until 19 June at $1,200. It then dropped steadily and didn’t rise back above $1,100 until 10 August. It stayed above $1,100 until 5 November, when it quickly but erratically dropped to around $1,060.

http://www.usagold.com/reference/goldprices/2015.html

What Faber didn’t predict was Donald Trump. Trump announced his Presidential campaign on 16 June. Election day was 3 November.

Faber has been long term bearish about the American economy for a number of years, and continues to be so. He concluded his June 2008 newsletter with the following mock quote:

“The federal government is sending each of us a $600 rebate. If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, the money goes to China. If we spend it on gasoline it goes to the Arabs. If we buy a computer it will go to India. If we purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala. If we purchase a good car it will go to Germany. If we purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy. The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it on prostitutes and beer, since these are the only products still produced in US. I’ve been doing my part.”

Hahaha!

Marc Faber, aka Dr. Doom, sticks to stock-swoon call - MarketWatch

Marc Faber?s forecast for the U.S. stock market is frightening - MarketWatch

Oh, wait. Doctor Doom might not have been joking about the whores and ale. Not only is his left eye considerably more guarded than the right, look at those unequal determination lines between the eyebrow. Even his nose is unequal. When you have a face that is lopsided and not because of damage, it’s because there are two faces on the same skull. One trick to analyzing a face like this is mirroring. I began with this, the most front-facing pic I found:

And then I copied one side of his face, flipped it and overwrote the other side of his face. My apologies for this being poor quality; Doom is not actually a fathead with respect to the outside world.

His personal life has more determination lines, thinner nostrils (less social energy), eyes practically buried behind squinty defenses and a lower corner to his mouth. His legendary pessimism comes from his personal life, not his professional life. Had his external outlook been pessimistic, he would likely not have wanted to become a talking head.

In closing, a couple awesome quotes via Fortune Magazine:

http://fortune.com/2017/10/18/marc-faber-dr-doom-racist-comments-response/

When Faber was asked about his opinions on the abilities of African Americans and their capacity to “deliver economic progress,. he simply replied, .May I suggest you travel extensively through Africa and you will find . hopefully the answer..

When asked for comment on the Post report and the backlash over his comments, Faber told Fortune that, .If this is the only sin I committed in my life I would feel like a saint..

 

Choose the Form of the Destructor 8: Venice!

Leftoids are warming up to Trump’s idea of Build The Wall to keep out undesirables… but only for their own neighborhoods, so far. Reality stalks the dark streets of Venice, Los Angeles like a meth addict!

LA’s Battle for Venice Beach: Homeless Surge Puts Hollywood’s Progressive Ideals to the Test

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/features/las-homeless-surge-puts-hollywoods-progressive-ideals-test-1174599

by Scott Johnson and Peter Kiefer, 11 January 2019

Venice, aka Venice Beach because of its marina, is east of Malibu and south of Santa Monica. (Per Google Earth, Malibu still exists post-inferno.)

With swelling transient encampments abutting seven-figure homes, the beachside enclave has emerged as a flashpoint for the inequality shaping Los Angeles . and a real-world test case for the liberal ideology of the area’s showbiz residents.

Let’s keep score of Liberal Ideology versus Reality! 0:0

After the first attack, Randy Osborn figured it was just his turn. Tire slashings in his east Venice Beach neighborhood had become commonplace.

Crime just happens, yo. 1:0

But when his vintage Land Rover was hit a sixth time in the course of a few months, Osborn, who runs a small virtual reality company and has lived in Venice for seven years, began to worry he was being singled out.

“It may have been random, but it sure felt targeted and concentrated,” says Osborn, who now protects his tires each night with a jury-rigged plywood-and-chain contraption that has so far deterred the assailants. Every time he takes his family out of town, he worries about his house being robbed. “It’s not a very fun way to live,” he says. A lot of residents within Osborn’s 15-block area just east of Lincoln Boulevard . where actor Viggo Mortensen owns a home and director Jon Favreau is opening a production office . have similar stories. And though they can’t say for sure, Osborn and others suspect the crime is tied to several homeless encampments that have sprung up nearby in the past 15 months.

1:1. I remember liberals buying “The Club”, metal bars that locked onto your steering wheel to prevent theft. I remember some would-be carjacker getting kneecapped by one. I remember The Club quietly disappearing after Leftoids saw how a five-pound pronged steel bar could be used as a weapon. Ladies and Gentlemen, world-famous Ronco presents: The Woody!

Los Angeles is grappling with a homeless epidemic. “It’s the worst human catastrophe in America,” says Andy Bales, a pastor who runs the Union Rescue Mission on Skid Row. Faced with a growing crisis, city leaders last year budgeted more than $100 million for affordable housing, addiction treatment, job placement and mental health services.

You get more of what you subsidize. 2:1

And yet, as L.A.’s real estate prices soar, so does the city’s homeless population. And nowhere have the twin forces of inaccessible housing and inequality created a more explosive mix than in Venice Beach, a hotbed of entertainment executives and talent where the median home price is $1.9 million. Many of these residents are now grappling with a quality-of-life issue that defies their own liberal ideals.

They SAY they want equality but what they DO is $2M private estates. 2:2

Sleepless in Seattle and Community producer Gary Foster, who moved to the area two years ago from Westwood and works with the homeless advocacy group The People Concern, says he was surprised by the number of residents who expressed exasperation with . if not outright disdain for . the transient population.

He lied to defend the Narrative. 3:2.

“They tend to be liberal, they want to do good in the world, but they’re balancing their beliefs with how that might impact the value of their real estate,” says Foster, who began his activism after producing The Soloist, about a journalist who discovers a musical savant living on Skid Row.

Find any prodigies amongst the homeless lately, Foster? 3:3. First quarter’s done and it could be anybody’s game!

“There are actually [residents] advocating driving the homeless out of Venice . shipping them off somewhere, which is such a proto-fascist move,” says television writer Evan Dunsky, a 27-year resident of the area. “And then what? Do we have to build a wall around Venice?”

He’s more worried about the consumers than the producers. 4:3.

On Venice Boulevard in front of Vice Media’s offices, a chain-link fence was erected to prohibit tents from going up. Residents around Penmar Golf Course have started a GoFundMe page and have hit their goal of raising $80,000 to fill a pedestrian pathway with native plants and landscaping . a project being called the Frederick Avenue Pass-Through but whose real objective is to deter the large encampment that has ballooned there.

BWAAAAHAAAHAAAA!! Trump’s enemies built a wall to keep the beggars out! Grand slam home run for Team Reality!! 4:7!

Venice is now home to the largest concentration of homeless anywhere on L.A.’s Westside, with nearly 1,000 non-domiciled people. During the past 18 months, several encampments have swelled in more residential areas where homes can easily sell for eight figures and up. Tents, many of them equipped with mini refrigerators, cupboards, televisions and heaters, vie with pedestrian traffic.

Residents who live near the encampments say mail regularly goes missing. Break-ins have jumped. Hypodermic needles and human waste are appearing on sidewalks and at local playgrounds. Residents have complained to police about harassment and even physical assaults. “This is more of a criminal problem than a homeless problem,” says Carly, who lives next to the so-called Frederick camp adjacent to the Penmar Golf Course and who declined to give her last name out of safety concerns.

There’s no correlation between homelessness and petty crime? 5:7.

“There are crime problems in Venice,” concedes Mike Bonin, whose Council District 11 includes Venice Beach. Bonin has come under intense criticism for his handling of the homeless crisis by Venice residents displeased with his support of a measure to introduce a massive, $5 million transitional housing project in their city.

The residents demand safety, not subsidies! 5:8.

At the same time, Bonin says, “I can’t accept the idea that there is an inextricable link between crime and homelessness. It is wrong, it is not backed up by the data, and it leads to bad policy.”

It’s there, the data back it up and it leads to happy, clean neighborhoods. 8:8. Tied again at halftime!

Disagreements over the potential causes of the crimes have begun to factionalize Venice’s neighborhoods. “It was six months of terror, absolute terror,” says radiologist Maria Altavilla, who lives in east Venice. She says that the period of increased health and safety concerns coincided with the expansion of the homeless encampments the past year. She recently arrived home with her two children to find a woman shooting up in her yard. Lately, her husband has expressed a desire to move because of his frustration with the encampments.

8:9.

Several residents shared an unconfirmed theory . suggested to them by a local patrolman . that certain assailants were using the social media app NextDoor to monitor which residents are most vocal about their opposition to encampments and then targeting those individuals for retribution.

Only in America would the homeless coordinate over social media. 8:10.

Hmm, that sounds exactly like Antifa’s modus operandi.

As the problem worsens, homeowners are banding together to try to reclaim patches of sidewalk in an effort to deter future encampments. At the corner of Millwood Avenue and Lincoln, bulky wood planters now hog much of the sidewalk. Those planters emerged mysteriously two months ago outside a Staples office supply store that was once a popular resting spot for a handful of tent dwellers. The same pattern can be seen on another block, further south on Palms Boulevard, where similar metallic planters have recently appeared.

8:11.

“Honestly, I think we are a step and half away from vigilantism,” says a talent manager who has lived in the area for two decades. “I feel like this is heading toward a Guardian Angels type situation that you saw in 1970s New York. Someone is going to go out there with a lead pipe and give someone a serious beatdown. It’s awful to say, but I don’t see what prevents that from happening.”

The Unlikely Rise of an Alt-Right Hero | The New Republic

8:12 and if it ever happens, victory by a knockout. Or three!

Life in Venice Beach has always come with its own distinct form of urban grittiness. Unlike its bougie neighbors to the north in Pacific Palisades and Malibu, Venice has embraced its counterculture past. It’s the land of head shops and street art that celebrates icons like Jim Morrison, Dennis Hopper and Jerry Garcia. And, to a degree, that grittiness added to the area’s allure, helping turn Venice into one of L.A.’s most desirable neighborhoods. Venice now counts as residents actress Emilia Clarke, screenwriter Mark Boal and Participant Media’s David Linde, among many others in the industry.

Some girls have shredded jeans. Emilia Clarke has a shredded home! Her acting work on “Game of Thrones” is about to pay dividends in real life. 9:12.

The area also has become “Silicon Beach,” home to tech giants Snapchat and Google.

Now that’s just creepy, how Big Tech spawns neighborhoods of incredible economic inequity in its wake:

Dunsky has witnessed Venice’s transformation from a battleground for gangs to one that boasts several Michelin-starred restaurants. A self-proclaimed progressive, Dunsky says he fears that recent gentrification has altered people’s sympathies. “There is a fever of money in Venice that has nothing to do with its past. Whatever progressive elements were historically here have dwindled, and they’re being replaced by tech money.”

That’s right. Big Tech is not your friend any more than homeless druggies are your undiscovered artists. The score is 9:13 coming into the homestretch!

“It’s worse than it’s ever been,” says Tami Pardee, Venice’s top real estate broker, who moved to the area in 1993. “But sometimes it has to get like this for a real movement to start.”

Viva la Revolucion! 10:13.

Compass’ Mark Kitching says that in the past year, four buyers he worked with opted out of purchasing after unpleasant encounters with homeless residents when touring the area. “The Palisades is looking way more attractive when you are thinking about schools and cleanliness,” he says.

10:14.

The most common refrain heard when discussing the cause of L.A.’s homeless crisis is soaring housing costs. But there are other forces at play in Venice and throughout the city involving various laws and ballot measures that date back more than a decade. A 2006 ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Jones v. City of Los Angeles required that law enforcement and city officials no longer enforce the ban on sleeping on sidewalks anywhere in the city until a sufficient amount of permanent supportive housing could be built.

That was a massive judicial overreach even by the standards of the Ninth Circle. But no civil disobedience! A double header! 12:14.

Further complicating matters were two state ballot measures that voters overwhelmingly approved in 2016 . Propositions 47 and 57 . which decriminalized certain felonies to misdemeanors in an effort to address the state’s overburdened prison system. Officials, including Bonin, admit that those measures have complicated matters for law enforcement, who make arrests only to see the same perpetrators back on the street days later.

Prop 47 passed 60-40. It minimized penalties for drug possession. Prop 57 passed 65-35. It facilitated early parole for nonviolent drug offenses. Still think the Drug War is a bad idea? 14:14.

The people living in the encampments say they have been unfairly maligned, even as they admit there is little policing when they do break the law. … “We get away with a lot,” says Randy “Dee” Collins, 25, who adds his family has long owned property in Venice and that he has chosen a life on the street against their wishes. The Frederick camp, home to about a dozen tents and twice as many people, is littered with nine weeks’ worth of trash. These homeless people say neighbors are openly hostile to them. Collins says he offered one resident money for water but “she didn’t want to participate in anything that would help us.”

One and one. 15:15.

John Maceri, executive director of The People Concern, takes issue with residents who complain about the problem and then go on to criticize every proposed remedy. “The criminal element needs to be dealt with, but statistically, homeless people aren’t committing more crimes than other people, it’s just more visible and they are easier to blame,” he says.

In the context of Big Tech Elites, this could be true. Foul ball!

Things reached a boiling point at a packed town hall meeting in October, when residents got a chance to address the city’s plans to open a 154-bed transitional (“bridge”) housing shelter set to be built on a former Metro bus yard at Sunset and Pacific avenues (the plan was approved by the City Council in December). At the four-hour meeting, Bonin and Mayor Eric Garcetti were targets of angry chants and tirades that effectively centered on whether Venice was being asked to unfairly shoulder the burden for the entire Westside’s homeless population.

Bad photo op for the Garcetti 2020 Presidential campaign. 15:16.

Even the homeless woman at the Frederick camp says the city’s housing plans aren’t a viable long-term solution. “I’m not going to rub my tummy and jump through hoops just to live inside,” she says, “I shouldn’t have to go through that much of an act just to get housing. People should be allowed to live how they want.”

Shiv, baby, shiv! 15:17! The crowd is on its feet! Hear the roar! Reality is ascendant!

Bonin alleges that critics of the city’s efforts are resorting to hyperbolic, inflammatory language in an effort to smear the homeless. “The similarities in the language used when referring to the homeless and how Trump refers to immigrants is startling.”

The American Psychological Association Whores Itself to Every Victim Group in North America

How can a psychologist treat your mental problems if they start out believing there are no problems, only differences? And why should you trust a psychologist whose ethical standards include a “subject to change without notice” clause? Presenting the “APA GUIDELINES for the Psychological Practice with Boys and Men”

Click to access boys-men-practice-guidelines.pdf

INTRODUCTION

Boys and men are diverse with respect to their race, ethnicity, culture, migration status,
age, socioeconomic status, ability status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and religious affiliation. Each of these social identities contributes uniquely and in intersecting ways to shape how men experience and perform their masculinities, which in turn contribute to relational, psychological, and behavioral health outcomes in both positive and negative ways.

Translation, there is no “normal” male psychology. This is a scary opening assumption for a purportedly medical organization. How can they fix your mental problems if they start out believing there are no problems, only “differences”?

Although boys and men, as a group, tend to hold privilege and power based on gender, they also demonstrate disproportionate rates of receiving harsh discipline, academic [failings], mental health issues, physical health problems, public health concerns, and
a wide variety of other quality-of-life issues.

WHICH IS IT, MOTHERFUCKERS? Do men have special privileges or do we slit our wrists after getting kicked out of school after our grades fell when the constant male-bashing depressed us?

As much as I despite The Last Jedi, it’s informative for being the feminist manifesto performed for the silver screen. Recall that the all-male villains were simultaneously a deadly evil with every advantage and clownish buffoons easily manipulated by every bitter twat smaller than a Trigglypuff.

Same behavior here. Feminists hate men, they WANT to hate men. Even in the middle of discussing modern male problems of addiction, school failings, mental illnesses and fricking suicide, wimminz and their manginas won’t give up their accusation of male privilege. They need us to have male privilege even as they reduce us to empty, lifeless shells because if we didn’t have privilege then we’d be victims… of wimminz, no less.

Additionally, many men do not seek help when they need it, and many report distinctive barriers to receiving gender-sensitive psychological treatment.

They also report distinctive barriers to refusing gender-sensitive psychological treatment. Strike that, preteen children aren’t old enough to legally speak for themselves.

https://gunnerq.androsphere.net/2019/01/08/transsexuals-want-to-be-normal-again/

The development of guidelines for psychological practice with boys and men may help
to attend to the barriers that lead to the aforementioned disparities. Indeed, the American Psychological Association has developed guidelines for psychologists working with specific populations such as gay/lesbian/bisexual clients, racial and ethnic minority clients, older adults, transgender and gender-non-conforming persons, and girls and women.

Is anybody missing from that list? White… male… men… not including Baby Boomers.

The APA also has developed guidelines for psychological practice in health care delivery systems, forensic psychology, and psychological evaluation in child protection matters. These guidelines serve to improve service delivery among populations, stimulate public policy initiatives, and provide professional guidance based on advances in the field. Accordingly, the present document offers guidelines for psychological practice with boys and men.

Revisiting my opening question, the purpose of the APA has shifted from treating mental illnesses, malfunctions and other abnormal issues to implementing the feminist and globalist agendas. The Convergence of the APA is complete. It is nothing but a skin suit for the enemies of Christ.

Purpose and Scope

Professional Practice Guidelines are statements that suggest or recommend specific professional behavior, endeavor, or conduct for psychologists. Guidelines differ from standards in that standards are mandatory and may be accompanied by an
enforcement mechanism. … Guidelines may be superseded by federal or state laws…

Why is that? If a law requires malpractice, should the psychologist act according to his personal expertise or the whims of legislators? Why doesn’t a professional organization even pretend that its members are more likely to be knowledgeable about its own field than elected officials?

Answer, because the purpose of the Converged APA is now to implement gov’t policy, not to promote mental health.

In addition, consistent with the recommendations and procedures outlined by APA (2015b), these guidelines will need to be periodically reviewed and updated at least every 8 to 10 years, from the year of acceptance by the APA Council of Representatives, to take into account advances in research, changes in practice, and the effects of changing contemporary social forces and context. Hence, readers are advised to check the current status of these guidelines to ensure that they are still in effect and have not been superseded by subsequent revisions.

As I said in this post’s beginning, these guidelines on ethical conduct are subject to constant review and updating, and Good Citizens must check them regularly to ensure Narrative compliance.

The beneficiaries of these guidelines include all consumers of psychological practice including clients, students, supervisees, research participants, consultees, and other
health professionals.

Goodbye mental illness, hello mental health consumers!

Rather than offering a comprehensive review of content relevant to all areas of practice, this document provides examples of empirical and conceptual literature that support the need for practice guidelines with boys and men.

Yes, give us examples. Continuing:

GENDER
Gender refers to psychological, social, and cultural experiences
and characteristics associated with the social statuses of girls and
women or boys and men, whereas sex refers to biological aspects
of being male or female

CISGENDER

Cisgender is used to refer to people whose sex assigned at birth is aligned with their gender identity. These guidelines address conflict that cisgender, transgender, and
gender-nonconforming individuals may experience due to societal expectations regarding gender roles.

TRUTH

Truth refers to statements intended to convey a socially acceptable perception of reality.

CISTRUTH

Cistruth is used to refer to truths whose social acceptance is aligned with objective reality. These guidelines address conflict that cistruths, transtruths, and truth-nonconforming statements may experience due to societal expectations regarding morality.

Okay, I slipped in the second two.

GENDER BIAS

The term gender bias refers to beliefs and attitudes that involve stereotypes or preconceived ideas about the roles, abilities, and characteristics of males and females that may contain significant distortions and inaccuracies. Psychologists have an ethical obligation to recognize and confront these biases.

An ethical obligation to defy Christianity.

MASCULINITY IDEOLOGY

Masculinity ideology is a set of descriptive, prescriptive, and proscriptive of cognitions about boys and men. Although there are differences in masculinity ideologies, there is a particular constellation of standards that have held sway over large segments of the population, including: anti-femininity, achievement, eschewal of the appearance of weakness, and adventure, risk, and violence. These have been collectively referred to as traditional masculinity ideology.

A cistruth!

Additionally, acknowledging the plurality of and social constructionist perspective of masculinity, the term masculinities is being used with increasing frequency.

Not that I’ve heard. The Left gives out new words like candy.

OPPRESSION

Oppression includes discrimination against and/or systematic denial of resources to members of groups who are identified as inferior or less deserving than others. Oppression is most frequently experienced by individuals with marginalized social identities; is manifested in both blatant and subtle discrimination in areas such as racism, ageism, sexism, classism, and heterosexism; and results in limited access to social power.

Do What Thou Wilt Shall Be the Whole of the Law. -Aleister Crowley. Anything else is oppression!

PRIVILEGE

Privilege refers to unearned sources of social status, power, and institutionalized advantage experienced by individuals by virtue of their culturally valued and dominant social identities (e.g., White, Christian, male, and middle/upper class; McIntosh, 2008).

I left in this professional reference. Following are the ten guidelines followed by an excerpted paragraph of my choosing.

GUIDELINE 1

Psychologists strive to recognize that masculinities are constructed based on social, cultural, and contextual norms.

This is a religious statement, not a scientific statement. “‘There is no Creator God to define how humans should behave.” Also, “sex hormones are a social construct”.

Many men are socialized by friends (e.g., mimicking behaviors and interests), family (e.g., imitating parent and sibling behaviors), peers (e.g., conforming to group social norms to avoid ostracism), and society (e.g., adhering to media portrayals of gender conformity) to adopt traditional masculine ideals, behaviors, and attitudes. Yet for some men, this dominant ideology of masculinity has inherent conflicts. For instance, dominant masculinity was historically predicated on the exclusion of men who were not White, heterosexual, cisgender, able-bodied, and privileged. Moreover, the ideal, dominant masculinity is generally unattainable for most men. Men who depart from this narrow masculine conception by any dimension of diversity (e.g., race, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression) may find themselves negotiating between adopting dominant ideals that exclude them or being stereotyped or marginalized.

If “stereotyped or marginalized” means “cast into Hell by an Angry Christ” then I agree.

GUIDELINE 2

Psychologists strive to recognize that boys and men integrate multiple aspects to their social identities across the lifespan.

Refugee and immigrant boys and men often have different experiences from boys
and men born in the United States as their development is shaped by traumatic experiences. Moreover, the painful experiences associated with becoming the target of racism and inequality can lead some minority males to avoid identifying with their cultural heritages.

Skin suit, I tell you. They’re working illegal immigration into their model of masculinity.

Boys and men who are members of more than one minority group may have an especially difficult time resolving identity-related conflicts. For example, gay boys
and men of color may experience racism in the LGBT community…

…While the Left continues eating their own.

GUIDELINE 3

Psychologists understand the impact of power, privilege, and sexism on the development of boys and men and on their relationships with others.

Several controlled experiments have found that adult men who endorse sexist male role norms are likely to aggress against male and female participants who violate those norms.

Anybody with moral standards are more prone to “aggress” the violators of said moral standards than people with no moral standards. In fact, you can’t have group standards of any kind if you don’t insist that others follow them, which ironically is the APA’s motivation for this very handbook.

Additionally, traditional masculinity ideology encourages men to adopt an approach to sexuality that emphasizes promiscuity and other aspects of risky sexual behavior, such as not learning a partner’s sexual history or engaging in sex without protection from pregnancy or disease transmission. Indeed, heterosexual men’s adherence to traditional, sexist aspects of masculinity has been connected to sexual assault perpetration, as well as decreased condom use and increased casual .hook-up. sex.

They blame heteros for the behavior of homos. Sodomy is beyond disgusting, diseased and N>1,000 but I must admit, monogamists don’t use many condoms. Just one more, #2 is so good to fisk:

In addition to increasing the possibility of engaging in violence, men who accept sexist constructions of masculinity are often restricted by codes of conduct that inhibit their ability to be emotionally vulnerable and form deep connections in adult relationships. For instance, although the isolating effects of these beliefs likely depend on a variety of social and ecological contexts, numerous studies have provided evidence that endorsement of sexist male roles is related to men’s fear of intimacy and discomfort with physical affection with other men.

Sexist constructions of masculinity are badthink because they discourage sodomy. Speaking of, societies that are notorious for punishing sodomy tend to have lots of physical affection between men. They know it isn’t about feeling out the other guy’s arse.

GUIDELINE 4

Psychologists strive to develop a comprehensive understanding of the factors that influence the interpersonal relationships of boys and men.

Did NAMBLA write this handbook? Boys are not men. They should not be grouped with men for a psychologist promoting “masculine behavior”. But nearly the entire handbook talks as if “boy” is a synonym for “man”.

Psychologists strive to use a variety of methods to promote the development
of male-to-male relationships. Toward addressing this goal, psychologists recognize and challenge socialization pressures on boys and men to be hypercompetitive and hyper aggressive with one another to help boys and men develop healthy same-sex friendships.

Friendships based on emotional intimacy and freedom from traditionally normative sexual behavior instead of mutual respect and shared experiences. We can read between those lines. If NAMBLA didn’t ghost-write this then they must have been underbid.

GUIDELINE 5

Psychologists strive to encourage positive father involvement and healthy family relationships.

Yes, let’s talk about the involvement of fathers in their families.

Provided that positive paternal engagement and inclusive communication tend to
have long-term emotional and psychological benefits for both children and fathers, psychologists strive to promote healthy father involvement and father engagement in treatment with their children and families.

Instead of promoting fatherhood, the APA promotes “healthy father involvement, provided it brings long-term benefits”. Aside from this, the article only mentions “nonresident fathers” and “changing demographic trends” without anything about how the new nonresident, nonbreadwinner father might not have been a voluntary choice on Daddy’s part.

Incredibly, the word “divorce” does not show up once in the entire handbook.

GUIDELINE 6

Psychologists strive to support educational efforts that are responsive to the needs of boys and men.

They mean institutional educational efforts specifically. Since when is gov’t-controlled K-12 schooling an imperative of mental health?

The provision of a high-quality education characterized by a safe and supportive learning environment, a challenging curriculum, and systematic career education
and counseling enhances the intellectual, emotional, and social development of individuals and helps them to prepare for their future roles in the community and
workforce.

In the bad old days of patriarchy, we built schools so that people would be able to understand God and the natural world He made. Today, the gov’t builds schools to produce well-behaved, profitable worker bees. This is now a priority for the American Psychology Association.

Dept. of Education delenda est.

GUIDELINE 7

Psychologists strive to reduce the high rates of problems boys and men face and act out in their lives such as aggression, violence, substance abuse, and suicide.

Aggression and violence are morally neutral… not “problems” except to tyrants and passive-aggressive anklebiters. (Feminists are both.) Substance abuse and suicide are what’s happening to White America as their options for resisting this mindfuckery are closed off.

Although the vast majority of males are not violent, boys and men commit nearly
90% of violent crimes in the United States (United States Department of Justice,
2011).

Because women aren’t strong enough to be violent, not even against each other. Female cat fights are harmless entertainment whereas when men lay into each other, bones break and blood spills. It is recorded that female police use their firearms much more often then men do; given the chance, women will be MORE violent than men because they haven’t had the incrementally aggressive experience of male adolescence to understand the morality of great power.

In fact, one criminal justice theory of street gangs is that they’re prone to violence because the boys haven’t been allowed the chance to learn second-order masculine behaviors such as respect and patience. That comes partly from learning the healthy limitations of what violence can accomplish. Being male isn’t just that I can make serious threats against you; it’s that you can, too, so maybe we should cooperate instead of finding out who would win in a dark alley.

Childhood physical and/or sexual abuse victimization has been found to be a significant precursor to aggressive behavior in boys and men.

They are shameful hypocrites for saying this immediately after their Guideline on the promotion of “intimacy” between boys and men.

Other risk factors for aggressive behavior include poor parental and teacher supervision, low academic achievement, frequent viewing of violent media, and living in high crime neighborhoods.

This is a correlation implying causation argument. If unsupervised boys act violent then is that because they end up feral or because they would be violent if not restrained? Do violent games cause violent kids, or do violent kids enjoy violent games? And OF COURSE a person is more likely to be violent if they live in a violent neighborhood. One guess where all the violent people are concentrated!

I learned about correlation implying causation in high school. These frauds have PhDs and decades of clinical practice.

GUIDELINE 8

Psychologists strive to help boys and men engage in health-related behaviors.

Do they mean mental health? No, they mean socio-sexual-politico-racial-economic-health-related behaviors. Everything BUT mental health:

In addition to social norms that impact most men’s health behaviors, the health challenges for men from historically marginalized groups (e.g., men of color, men with disabilities, gay and bisexual men, transgender men) are long rooted in sociopolitical, sociohistorical, and sociostructural forces that oppress and stigmatize individuals. Men and boys of color suffer from higher rates of HIV, cancers, heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, diabetes, and other health conditions compared to their White counterparts. Insensitivity to racial stereotypes, the interaction of race and gender, cultural values and mores, immigration status, and social and economic conditions have a significant impact on the health of men of color as well as those who live in poverty.

The NAMBLA study group has had its turn to talk, now it’s the NAACP study group’s turn.

GUIDELINE 9

Psychologists strive to build and promote gender-sensitive psychological services.

Simultaneously, psychologists worry about increases in child sex abuse.

GUIDELINE 10

Psychologists understand and strive to change institutional, cultural, and systemic problems that affect boys and men through advocacy, prevention, and education.

Please, you busybody neckbearded Ivory Tower lunatics, just leave us alone. Don’t advocate for us, don’t control our behavior and to Eternal Hell with your worthless education.

Some men encounter institutional, cultural, or systemic barriers to their well-being, as evidenced by societal problems wherein men are disproportionately overrepresented. For instance, one of the major areas affecting boys and men is the high incarceration rate in the United States.

Move over, law enforcement! The psychologists have arrived to show you how your job is done. This must be talk time for the Crime Is Society’s Fault study group.

For example, men account for 93% of all adults in federal prison to date, and although African American and Latino males constitute approximately 7% and 8% of the general population, respectively, they make up 37% and 34% of the federal prison population. Native American men are imprisoned at more than 4 times the rate of White men. These racial, ethnic, and gender disparities may be the result of racial, ethnic, and gender stereotypes.

Or, they may be the result of an impartial criminal justice system applied to different races with different ideas about what is acceptable behavior.

Although most violence is perpetrated by men, most men are not violent. Consequently, men are often stereotyped as aggressive and violent.

One final act of shameless hypocrisy to tie off this fisking. The APA releases an entire handbook dedicated to combating the violence of hegemonic traditional masculinity and then admits, down at the bottom, that most men aren’t violent.

Stick a fork in the APA, God. They’re done. Then throw one of them lightning bolts at the fork. Such hypermasculine aggression will serve to impose Your hegemonic notions of don’t rape boys upon the emotionally sensitive hindquarters of Your enemies.

 

Gunner Q Wants Out of Commiefornia

Everything has aligned and it’s time for me to GTFO of California. I had plans that are no longer feasible and don’t want to be on the Left side when the Shitocalypse happens.

But where to go?

I do civil engineering so I need a urban area, either large town or small city, and of course I prefer to live among white people resistant to Convergence. Having rivers or other water bodies nearby would be a plus. Can my readers recommend a region to look at? Most of my family is on the Left Coast so I don’t have contacts in flyover country. But it needs to be a place you know for yourself. Statistics are like rugs, they lie everywhere.

Grandfather of Oklahoma teen killed by homeowner in burglary says AR15 made for ‘unfair’ fight

https://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/04/02/grandfather-of-oklahoma-teen-killed-by-homeowner-in-burglary-says-ar15-made-for-unfair-fight

2 April 2017

One would think there’s be no more to this than the headline… but lo and behold!

Three Oklahoma teenagers were killed last week when they broke into a house and were met by a homeowner with an AR15. Now the grandfather of one of the teenagers is speaking out about his grandson’s death.

According to KTUL-TV, Leroy Schumacher, grandfather of 17-year-old Jacob Redfearn, believes the death of Redfearn was unjustified because the homeowner’s AR15 gave him an unfair advantage over the three burglars.

Speaking to KTUL, Schumacher acknowledged that breaking into a house was “stupid,” but death was not the appropriate consequence.

“What these three boys did was stupid,” Schumacher said. “They knew they could be punished for it but they did not deserve to die.”

“Brass knuckles against an AR-15? C’mon. Who was afraid for their life?” Schumacher said.

Being stupid is not a crime but acting stupid can be fatal.

The homeowner who pulled the trigger has not been charged with any crimes because police say he acted in self-defense. But Schumacher reinterated his belief that the consequences literally did not fit the crime.

“There’s got to be a limit to that law, I mean he shot all three of them . there was no need for that,” he told KTUL.

So far, another Saturday night in flyover country.

In addition to Redfearn, 19-year old Maxwell Cook and 16-year old Jake Woodruff were also shot and killed in the home invasion. Getaway driver, 21-year-old Elizabeth Rodriguez, was uninjured but later arrested and charged with three counts of first-degree murder, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of second-degree burglary.

Police also say Rodriguez admitted to planning the burglary.

Whoa. Their female getaway driver was the boss of that little gang? She must have been hawt sexy! *checks* *PUKES*

Three teenagers dressed in black and wearing masks and gloves were killed by a resident when they broke into a home, Oklahoma authorities said Monday.

A fourth suspect, the alleged getaway driver, now faces first-degree murder counts in their deaths, authorities said.

The 23-year-old son of the homeowner fired the fatal shots from a AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, officials said. One suspect had a knife, and another carried brass knuckles.

The boys were aged 19, 17 and 16. The girl bossing them around was 21. Apparently, Rodriguez recruited them with sex and then convinced them to rob houses for her.

The Heavy confirms she was sexually active with Cook. Also, that she was a mother of three by age 21, no known father. Was baby-trap blackmail involved?

As of 4 April 2018, Rodriguez pleaded not guilty to triple murder. She is not repentant.

 

Transsexuals Want To Be Normal Again

Do you know why California criminalized efforts to cure sexual perversion? Because many perverts want to be cured. To Social Justice, that’s a problem.

The new taboo: More people regret sex change and want to .detransition., surgeon says

https://nationalpost.com/news/world/the-new-taboo-more-people-regret-sex-change-and-want-to-detransition-surgeon-says

Five years ago, Professor Miroslav Djordjevic, the world-leading genital reconstructive surgeon, received a patient at his Belgrade clinic. It was a transgender patient who had surgery at a different clinic to remove male genitalia . and had since changed their mind.

That was the first time Djordjevic had ever been contacted to perform a so-called “reversal” surgery. Over the next six months, another six people also approached him, similarly wanting to reverse their procedures. They came from countries all over the Western world, Britain included, united by an acute sense of regret. At present, Djordjevic has a further six prospective people in discussions with his clinic about reversals and two currently undergoing the process itself; reattaching the male genitalia is a complex procedure and takes several operations over the course of a year to fully complete, at a cost of some euros 18,000 (pounds 16,000).

Those wishing the reversal, Djordjevic says, have spoken to him about crippling levels of depression following their transition and in some cases even contemplated suicide. .It can be a real disaster to hear these stories,. says the 52-year-old. And yet, in the main part, they are not being heard.

It seems that contra Social Justice, human sexuality is NOT a social construct. The implications of that are fatal to the SocJus agenda of reinventing human sexuality.

Last week, it was alleged that Bath Spa University has turned down an application for research on gender reassignment reversal because it was a subject deemed “potentially politically incorrect..

No way that’s a real uni… ah, it’s in Bath, England. No idea about “Spa” but at least it isn’t “Salts”.

James Caspian, a psychotherapist who specializes in working with transgender people, suggested the research after a conversation with Djordjevic in 2014 at a London restaurant where the Serbian told him about the number of reversals he was seeing, and the lack of academic rigour on the subject.

According to Caspian, the university initially approved his proposal to research “detransitioning.” He then amassed some preliminary findings that suggested a growing number of young people . particularly young women . were transitioning their gender and then regretting it.

But after submitting the more detailed proposal to Bath Spa, he discovered he had been referred to the university ethics committee, which rejected it over fears of criticism that might be directed towards the university. Not least on social media from the powerful transgender lobby.

Speaking this week, Caspian described himself as “astonished” at the decision, while Bath Spa University has launched an internal inquiry into why the research was turned down and is at present refusing to comment further.

Launching an investigation must be 21st Century language for “of course it’s true”.

Until the investigation is complete, Djordjevic, who performs around 100 surgeries a year both at his Belgrade clinic and New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital, is unwilling to give his exact opinion on the apparent rejection, but admits he is baffled as there is a desperate need for greater understanding in reversals.

.Definitely reversal surgery and regret in transgender persons is one of the very hot topics,. he says. .Generally, we have to support all research in this field..

Djordjevic, who has 22 years. experience of genital reconstructive surgery, operates under strict guidelines. Before any surgery, patients must undergo psychiatric evaluation for a minimum of between one and two years, followed by a hormonal evaluation and therapy. He also requests two professional letters of recommendation for each person and attempts to remain in contact for as long as possible following the surgery. Currently, he still speaks with 80 per cent of his former patients.

That’s a respectably high level of professional concern. For him to be encountering clients with post-op regret to the point of suicide despite rigorous screening, the actual problem must be much worse.

Following conversations with those upon whom he has helped perform reversals, Djordjevic says he has real concerns about the level of psychiatric evaluation and counselling that people receive elsewhere before gender reassignment first takes place.

Djordjevic fears money is at the root of the problem, and says his reversal patients have told him about making initial inquiries to surgeries and simply being asked to send a cheque in return.

.I have heard stories of people visiting surgeries who only checked if they had the money to pay,. he says. .We have to stop this. As a community, we have to make very strong rules: nobody who wants to make this type of surgery or just make money can be allowed to do so..

Money isn’t the problem. Coercive sexual perversion is the problem. Trannies who want to go back to normal are living disproofs of the modern, Godless zeitgeist. Djordjevic doesn’t know it yet but he just discovered God is real.

To date, all of his reversals have been transgender women aged over 30 wanting to restore their male genitalia. Over the last two decades, the average age of his patients has more than halved, from 45 to 21. While the World Professional Association for Transgender Health guidelines currently state nobody under the age of 18 should undergo surgery, Prof Djordjevic fears this age limit could soon be reduced to include minors. Were that to happen, he says, he would refuse to abide by the rules. .I.m afraid what will happen five to 10 years later with this person,. he says. .It is more than about surgery; it’s an issue of human rights. I could not accept them as a patient as I’d be afraid what would happen to their mind..

Referrals to adult and child gender identity clinics in the UK have increased dramatically over the past 10 years. In April, the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, the only clinic for adolescents in England, reported 2,016 referrals to its gender identity development service, a 42 per cent rise compared to the previous year, which in itself marked a 104 per cent increase on the year before that.

Are these child-clients being discovered or manufactured?

The clinic stresses the majority of its young referrals do not end up receiving physical treatment through the service. While NHS guidelines state young people should not be given cross-sex hormone treatment until 16, concerns have been raised about the lack of regulation, particularly in the private sector.

Earlier this month, it was revealed a Monmouthshire MP, Dr Helen Webberley, was being investigated by the General Medical Council (GMC), following complaints from two GPs that she had treated children as young as 12 with hormones at her private clinic, which specialises in gender issues.

Webberley insists she has done nothing wrong, and there were no “decisions or judgments” made on the claims against her. .There are many children under 16 who are desperate to start what they would consider their natural puberty earlier than that,. she said this month.

Djordjevic feels differently, and admits he has deep reservations about treating children with hormonal drugs before they reach puberty . not least as by blocking certain hormones before they have sufficiently developed means they may find it difficult to undergo reassignment surgery in the future.

.Ethically, we have to help any person over the world starting from three to four years of age, but in the best possible way,. he says. .If you change general health with any drug, I’m not a supporter of that theory..

Djordjevic is proof that non-Christians can still be moral, honorable people.

These are profoundly life-changing matters around which he . like many in his industry . feels far better debate is required to promote new understanding. But at the moment, it seems, that debate is simply being shut down.

Miroslav Djordjevic - Wikipedia

Miroslav Djordjevic. I think the hoodedness of his eyes is merely ethnic. The cleft chin is associated by some with artistic talent, which I’m inclined to believe because of his concave nose… not what one would expect of a bookish type of surgeon. The nose tip is mildly bulbous, an indicator of desire for financial achievement.

He approaches his work as a cosmetic surgeon from the perspective of making a good living off artwork rather than biological or mechanical interest. Not a bad fit and he takes his art seriously, as would be indicated by his dimpled septum.

By contrast…

Ask a Sexologist - Online Sexologist 24/7

Helen Webberley. Sourced from https://www.doctorspring.com/ask-a-sexologist. Frizzy hair and it’s colored both unnaturally and carelessly… good indicators of an unstable personality. If that’s the best smile she can manage, she has a deeply unhappy personal life. She has no logical/rational traits in her face; rounded eyes, upturned nose, dramatic eyebrows, I would not expect such a face to be highly educated. The stethoscope is an obvious prop; those aren’t scrubs she’s wearing, another inconsistency in her appearance. High cheekbones is associated with assertiveness.

She’s largely incompetent as a medical doctor, which explains her ending up on an advice website, and her willingness to hormonally mutate children away from a normal life is more than enough confirmation of a poor mental state.

About that Doctorspring.com website. Here are the doctors standing by to advise you on “sexology”:

Five Hindus plus Helen Wobbly. Is this the face of polyandry? It’s almost as creepy as five male Japanese doctors and one tentacle. They tell you of true path good sex!

The contrast between a male Serbian artist wondering about the consequences of his life’s work against a British Borderline Barbie chemically castrating children against medical advice & ethics could not be more stark. And between them, Bath Spa University is worried about its reputation should it disapprove of the visibly deranged.

Not only does Social Justice not want to allow trannies to regret giving up their normal, God-given sex, it wants to poison children into transsexuality before they even know what “normal” means.

 

 

70 Is the New 30

Bumming on the Baby Boomers never gets old. Apparently, neither do Baby Boomers. The NY Times sucks up to the last people on Earth who respect the Old Grey Lady:

Am I .Old.?

https://www.nytimes com/2018/12/13/well/mind/age-aging-old-young-psychology.html

By Steven Petrow, 13 Dcember 2018

A few years ago at a college reunion, I listened transfixed as the silver-haired philanthropist David Rubenstein urged us “to accelerate” as we entered the last chapters of our lives. Pick up the pace? So many of my contemporaries were stopping . if not stooping . to smell the roses.

With his admonition in mind, I recently spoke with Mr. Rubenstein, now 69, and asked him if he considers himself old. .Sixty-nine seems like a teenager to me,. he replied. Coincidentally, just a few days earlier, a 68-year-old poet I know, in between surgeries to help her mend after a fall, told me point blank, .I am an old lady now..

What makes one sexagenarian identify as old when another doesn’t? And what is .old,. anyway?

Having turned 61, this is a question very much on my mind . and likely to be on the minds of the 70 million baby boomers who are 50-plus (yes, even the tail end of the boom is now .middle-aged. or .old.). Dinner conversations are now hyper-focused on how to stay young or at least delay old.

If you’re wrinkled and spend more on doctors than food, then you’re old.

Certainly the definition of “old” is changing, as life spans have grown longer. .Someone who is 60 years old today is middle-aged,. said Sergei Scherbov, the lead researcher of a multiyear study on aging. When does old begin? I asked.

Dr. Scherbov says for Americans, it’s roughly 70 to 71 for men and 73 to 74 for women, though, as he has written, .your true age is not just the number of years you have lived..

Tell it to the Social Security Administration. Why are old farts not looking to the government for answers to these essential questions? They thought gov’t was the solution to everything else.

.The main idea of the project,. he told me, .is that an old age threshold should not be fixed but depend on the characteristics of people.” Factors such as life expectancy, personal health, cognitive function and disability rates all play a role, he said, and today’s 65-year-old is more like a 55-year-old from 45 years ago.

We’ve heard that reasoning before… somewhere…

As with beauty, the meaning of “old” also depends on the person you ask. Millennials, now in their 20s and 30s, say that old starts at 59, according to a 2017 study by U.S. Trust. Gen Xers, now in their 40s . and no doubt with a new appreciation for just how close they are to entering their 50s . say 65 is the onset of old. Boomers and the Greatest Generation pegged 73 as the beginning of old. Clearly, much depends on the perspective of who’s being asking to define “old.”

To that very point, I was curious to see how my friends who are 50-plus defined old . and asked them on Facebook. Among the dozens of responses, two made me smile: .Old is my current age + 4.. And this: “Tomorrow” Always tomorrow. Never today.” Perhaps the one most difficult to hear: .When you get called .ma.am instead of “miss.” (That will never happen to me, although I’m constantly called “sir” these days.)

Other friends pointed to various physical milestones as the visible line in the sand. A colleague posted: .When you can’t jog a 15-minute mile.” Another friend said, .When I have to stop playing tennis.” Others ominously noted cognitive benchmarks: .When you stop being interested in new information and experiences.” Many focused on “memory issues” as defining the onset of old.

The bottom line: “old” is subjective, a moving target.

We’ve heard this reasoning before, too. Nihilism? Existentialism? Hmm.

That.s why David Rubenstein, 69, the board chairman of both the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the Smithsonian Institution and co-founder and co-executive chairman of the Carlyle Group, can claim he’s not old, while my poet friend, a year younger than he is, refers to herself as old.

That’s why Judge Ginsburg “isn’t too old” to serve on the Supreme Court.

.Negative ageist attitudes toward older people are widespread,. a 2015 analysis by the World Health Organization confirmed in a survey. Nearly two-thirds of the respondents, 83,000 people of all ages in 57 countries, did not respect older people, with the lowest levels of respect reported in high-income countries like the United States. Even more damning: These views adversely “affect older people’s physical and mental health..

They wouldn’t be Boomers if they were self-aware. “We ruined Western Civilization for fun and cash… why don’t you useless, worthless, easily replaceable kids respect us?”

The good news is that those views can be altered. .Like sexism and racism, changing social norms is possible,. wrote John Beard, WHO.s director of aging and life course. .It is time to stop defining people by their age..

Hear, hear!

Which brings up this post’s point. Let me re-quote the WHO director of aging… can’t even believe that office exists… “Like sexism and racism, changing social norms is possible”. Jesus is dead but Social Justice will save us!

Unbelievable. Well, no, the generation that abandoned Christ made no preparation for the eternal souls they don’t believe they have. That’s consistent. But by worldly standards, they won. Yes? They got everything they wanted in the world, less one Orange Man. There is virtually nothing left for them to consume.

And yet, they’re sufficiently upset about dying to comically defy the inevitable. Why not? Did they lack any good thing except “more”? Do they believe death is anything but quiet, painless oblivion in which nothing matters?

Why do they care that they aren’t respected? Is there something more to life than the power and wealth they eagerly consumed? If so, they when aren’t they belatedly embracing it now?

The fool said” there is no God” and now at the end of his misspent life, he’s terrified by a thought he won’t allow yet must deny. Ah, sweet schadenfreude.

Am I old yet? I say .no,. emphatically. I have every intention of staying active and engaged at least into my 70s, 80s and I hope longer. But my good intentions could be derailed. I have cardiovascular disease and suffer from depression, and cancer runs like a river through my family. My “go get “em” attitude could change with a single CT scan, car crash or loosened plaque in my arteries. Which means I may always be only a step or two away from crossing the threshold to old. All the more reason to pick up the pace now.

He’s not ready to die. That is a colossal mistake, not being ready for the most predictable event of one’s life. Like a whore in her twenties, he’s spending life as hard and fast and fun as he can in defiance of inevitable reality. Good thing he knows God isn’t real and will never call him to account!

Seems that God tolerates being mocked better than Death does.

 

Boba Fett Strikes Back

To the great surprise of socialists everywhere, California’s bail enforcement industry is not going quietly to its centrally decreed death. More than that, the situation has brought to my attention a Soros-level threat to Western Civilization: the Arnold Foundation. That’s John D. Arnold of the Enron scandal fame.

California Replace Cash Bail with Risk Assessments Referendum (2020)

https://ballotpedia.org/California_Replace_Cash_Bail_with_Risk_Assessments_Referendum_(2020)

The California Replace Cash Bail with Risk Assessments Referendum (#18-0009) may appear on the ballot in California as a veto referendum on November 3, 2020. The veto referendum seeks to overturn Senate Bill 10 (SB 10), a bill that made California the first state to end the use of cash bail for detained suspects awaiting trials. Instead, SB 10 instituted a system of risk assessments to determine whether a detained suspect should be granted pretrial release and under what conditions.

I didn’t find a news article announcing the fact that “Repeal Senate Bill 10” qualified for a voter referendum so had to use Ballotpedia.

California Gov. Brown (D) signed SB 10 on August 28, 2018, and the veto referendum to overturn the bill was filed on August 29. The American Bail Coalition, a nonprofit trade association, organized the political action committee Californians Against the Reckless Bail Scheme to advocate for the veto referendum.

I love your PAC’s name. Methinks bail bondmen don’t kiss much political ass.

SB 10 would go into effect on October 1, 2019. On November 20, 2018, proponents reported filing 576,745 signatures with election officials. At least 365,880 (63.44 percent) need to be valid for the referendum to appear on the ballot. Counties have until January 17, 2019, to conduct a random sample of signatures. Should enough valid signatures be certified, SB 10 would be put on hold until voters decide the bill’s fate in 2020.

What was SB 10 designed to change about bail in California?

SB 10 was designed to replace the state’s cash bail system with risk assessments to determine whether a detained suspect should be granted pretrial release and under what conditions. SB 10 was set to go into effect on October 1, 2019. The risk assessments would categorize suspects as low risk, medium risk, or high risk. Suspects deemed as having a low risk of failure to appear in court and low risk to public safety would be released from jail, while those deemed a high risk would remain in jail, with a chance to argue for their release before a judge. Those deemed a medium risk could be released or detained, depending on the local court’s rules. SB 10 would exempt suspects of misdemeanors, with exceptions, from needing a risk assessment to be released.[1]

SB 10 would require the countywide superior courts to establish pretrial assessment divisions, which would be tasked with conducting risk assessments and making recommendations for conditions of release. The Judicial Council, the rule-making department of the state’s judicial system, would decide which risk assessment tools are valid for use. SB 10 would not itself mandate what factors the tools need to consider, but the bill would state that the tools need to be accurate and reliable, as based on scientific research.

Naturally, I was very curious what these “risk assessment tools” might be. Is anybody surprised that a philanthropic organization with heavy Obama, Clinton and Enron ties just happens to have one ready to go? That’s the Arnold Foundation and they already provided their risk assessment tool to San Francisco gratis several years ago, to test it.

That testing became known as the Twin Peaks Killing.

Suspect in Twin Peaks killing released from jail days earlier

Lamonte Mims, 19, is accused of killing 71-year-old Edward French in an attempted robbery on San Francisco's Twin Peaks on July 16, 2017. Photo: Courtesy, San Francisco Police Department

Lamont Mims, accused of murdering photographer Edward French

Fantasy Decuir, 20, is accused of killing 71-year-old Edward French in an attempted robbery on San Francisco's Twin Peaks on July 16, 2017.

Fantasy Decuir, also accused of the murder (and actually pulling the trigger). Note cutting eyelids and frizzy hair. Mims could have chosen a saner girlfriend.

One of two people accused of killing a 71-year-old film scout and photographer on San Francisco’s Twin Peaks last month had been arrested days earlier in the city for allegedly being a felon in possession of a gun, but was released from jail through a pretrial diversion program, records show.

City officials are now questioning the release of Lamonte Mims, a 19-year-old former resident of Patterson (Stanislaus County), who was on probation for burglarizing cars on Twin Peaks.

Mims was booked Monday and appeared in Superior Court on Tuesday to face charges including murder in the July 16 shooting of the film scout, Edward French, which occurred in the early morning during an apparent robbery attempt. A second suspect, 20-year-old Fantasy Decuir of San Francisco, did not appear in court after being hospitalized for an undisclosed reason, Assistant District Attorney Michael Swart said in court.

So, Mims was convicted on felony burglary charges, paroled and then violated parole by carrying a gun while associating with “another man” also illegally carrying a gun.

GQ risk assessment tool: Prior felony criminal record plus weapon-related probation violation plus probable gang association equals “lock him up for sure”. But San Francisco had a better idea:

In May 2016, San Francisco began experimenting with a computer algorithm that seeks to improve on the system of setting bail based on alleged crimes, taking into consideration whether a defendant might pose a public safety or flight risk.

The risk-assessment tool, developed by the Texas-based Laura and John Arnold Foundation, weighs a number of factors including the pending charges, the person’s age and rap sheet, and their record of showing up to court. The tool then makes a recommendation for or against release, which is sent to a judge who can follow or ignore the advice.

Though District Attorney George Gasc?n was a proponent of the tool, prosecutors and defense attorneys said they have seen assessments with which they did not agree. Alex Bastian, a spokesman for the district attorney’s office, said Tuesday there have been “many instances of contention..

.As it relates to this case along with many other cases, we have a disagreement with how that risk assessment is being calculated,. Bastian said. .They suggested release with certain conditions, and the judge carried out that recommendation and this defendant was released..

The Pretrial Diversion Project and the Arnold Foundation did not immediately return requests for comment Tuesday. …

San Francisco police said they linked Decuir and Mims to French’s killing while investigating a separate armed robbery that occurred near the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption at Geary and Gough streets on the morning of July 28. A 53-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman had been robbed of their cameras and wallets at gunpoint.

In court Tuesday, Swart argued against Judge Donna Hitchens. decision to set bail for Mims and Decuir at $5 million, calling it “an insult.” He asked for $10 million, citing Mims. prior convictions and the murder charges against them. Hitchens kept the bail at $5 million.

A video by NBC states that Mims was categorized as a “moderate risk” by the Arnold system. Note that closing comment about a bleeding-heart judge giving Mims lower parole? On the one hand, the judge might have simply thought that Mims wasn’t going to pay a $5M bail in stolen cameras anyway. On the other hand, this excerpt from Wired Magazine paints a more ominous picture:

WHEN GOVERNMENT RULES BY SOFTWARE, CITIZENS ARE LEFT IN THE DARK

https://www.wired.com/story/when-government-rules-by-software-citizens-are-left-in-the-dark/

By Tom Simonite, 17 August 2017

IN JULY, SAN Francisco Superior Court Judge Sharon Reardon considered whether to hold Lamonte Mims, a 19-year-old accused of violating his probation, in jail. One piece of evidence before her: the output of algorithms known as PSA that scored the risk that Mims, who had previously been convicted of burglary, would commit a violent crime or skip court. Based on that result, another algorithm recommended that Mims could safely be released, and Reardon let him go. Five days later, police say, he robbed and murdered a 71-year old man.

On Monday, the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office said staffers using the tool had erroneously failed to enter Mims. prior jail term. Had they done so, PSA would have recommended he be held, not released.

It’s hard to believe that staffers “forgot” Mims had a prior felony record. In fact, it’s hard to believe the PSA would have accepted “probation violation” without the original conviction.

As programmers say, Garbage In, Garbage Out. No risk assessment tool can be immune to being intentionally provided false information. Apart from Arnold Foundation conspiracies, the use of algorithms puts the power of determining pretrial release in the hands of anonymous gov’t employees… underneath the plausible deniability of “this is what the algorithm said”. The Social Justice Warrior’s native habitat, power over others without responsibility.

*Checks* Judge Donna Hitchens is now retired and a proud founder of the National Center for Lesbian Rights. Hmm, which civil rights are lesbian-specific? But that goes off topic.

Mims. case highlights how governments increasingly rely on mathematical formulas to inform decisions about criminal justice, child welfare, education and other arenas. Yet it’s often hard or impossible for citizens to see how these algorithms work and are being used.

San Francisco Superior Court began using PSA in 2016, after getting the tool for free from the John and Laura Arnold Foundation, a Texas nonprofit that works on criminal-justice reform. The initiative was intended to prevent poor people unable to afford bail from needlessly lingering in jail. But a memorandum of understanding with the foundation bars the court from disclosing “any information about the Tool, including any information about the development, operation and presentation of the Tool.. …

The Arnold Foundation says it no longer requires confidentiality from municipal officials, and is happy to amend existing agreements, to allow officials to disclose information about PSA and how they use it. But a representative of San Francisco Superior Court said its contract with the foundation has not been updated to remove the gag clause.

Color me shocked. However, the Arnold Foundation did acknowledge the nine “inputs” that its algorithm uses:

http://www.arnoldfoundation.org/new-data-pretrial-risk-assessment-tool-works-reduce-crime-increase-court-appearances/

The factors are:

  • Whether the current offense is violent
  • Whether the person had a pending charge at the time of the current offense
  • Whether the person has a prior misdemeanor conviction
  • Whether the person has a prior felony conviction
  • Whether the person has prior convictions for violent crimes
  • The person’s age at the time of arrest
  • How many times the person failed to appear at a pretrial hearing in the last two years
  • Whether the person failed to appear at a pretrial hearing more than two years ago
  • Whether the person has previously been sentenced to incarceration.

One wonders why individual judges cannot do for themselves what Arnold is building a national infrastructure to accomplish. They already have access to this information. Then, one remembers that most judges today are Social Justice Warriors like Donna Hutchins, who crave deniability no matter how personally powerful they are.

The major media haven’t said anything about the Arnold Foundation acting behind the scenes of SB 10. They certainly didn’t cover the active lawsuits against their pretrial algorithm:

Arnold Foundation Hires Bill Clinton’s Former Lawyer to Clarify The Foundation’s Complete Lack of Neutrality on Bail Reform.

http://www.americanbailcoalition.org/press-releases/laura-john-arnold-foundations-neutrality-bail-reform-facade/

by Jeff Clayton, Executive Director, American Bail Coalition (undated)

The Public Safety Assessment, a proprietary algorithm created by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation (hereinafter, “Arnold Foundation.), with the stated intent to use big-data to “moneyball” the criminal justice system, has been presented to public officials in numerous jurisdictions as simply an additional tool to help judges make better bail decisions by incorporating the risk of the defendant into such decisions. The Foundation posits itself as merely the neutral data-scientists helping to collect and analyze such information.

“Big Data” usage–statistical mining of massive datasets to make “discoveries”–is one of the primary sources of non-repeatable scientific studies.

Former U.S. Solicitor Paul Clement recently filed a lawsuit against the State of New Jersey, arguing that the new no-money bail system, which uses the Arnold Foundation tool, instead violates the federal constitution. That case is Holland v. Rosen, now pending before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, one level below the U.S. Supreme Court. Of course, in another federal case, Rodgers v. Arnold Foundation, et. al., the Arnold Foundation is being sued for products liability and wrongful death in New Jersey because their risk-tool counted a prior felon in possession of a firearm with a record a mile long as low-risk, only to be released on his own recognizance and then brutally murder another man days later.

I don’t see how any third-party algorithm provider can avoid endless lawsuits over product liability. Judges and related law enforcement personnel are given special legal immunities because their work would be impossible without them. It would be a very bad idea to extend those legal immunities to third parties.

The Arnold Foundation, however, recently made it clear in a legal filing that it has no respect for the state or federal constitutional right to bail, and that if it had its druthers, it would force the national implementation of what it describes as the “widely successful. New Jersey system.

In the Arnold Foundation’s now-unveiled quest to end money bail using a secret, proprietary algorithm, the Arnold Foundation has now opened up their significant war-chest to hire Bill Clinton’s former Solicitor General of the United States to advocate in favor of New Jersey’s no-money bail system. In the filing dated December 15, 2017, the Former Solicitor General Seth Waxman, a known supporter of progressive causes, makes clear what we knew all along.the Arnold Foundation produced its research and designed its algorithm in order to eliminate monetary bail in the United States by implementing the New Jersey system. In addition, the Arnold Foundation makes it absolutely clear that is against all use of the private bail system in the United States of America.

Yet, there is one big problem.most states have not and will not change their state constitutions or state statutes to embrace the Arnold Foundation’s ideologies, ideologies it shares with groups funded by billionaire George Soros such as the Pretrial Justice Institute. Elimination of the constitutional right to bail requires the changing of such constitutions, which now the Arnold Foundation has revealed it absolutely supports. …

Clearly, the fa?ade of neutral and unbiased science over at the Arnold Foundation has now evaporated more quickly than scarce water in a drought.

I’ll conclude with some Arnold Foundation highlights sourced from Wikipedia.

The Laura and John Arnold Foundation (also known as LJAF and as the Arnold Foundation) is a private foundation run by John D. Arnold, an American hedge fund manager, and his wife Laura Arnold. The organization was founded in 2008, the same year that the Arnolds signed the Giving Pledge, a pledge by some high-net-worth individuals to donate a large fraction of their income to philanthropic causes during their lifetimes.

The foundation has focused its donations on the issues of K-12 education reform, public pension reform, criminal justice reform, dietary policy, and improving reproducibility in science.

That last one is very odd for a philanthropic organization. Meanwhile, turns out that Soros, Arnold and friends are neck-deep in trying to seize control of floundering pension systems across the United States. I don’t have the economic skill to make sense of it.

In the period 2011.2016, LJAF made $684 million in grants, distributed as follows: $75 million for criminal justice, $206 million for education, $147 million for evidence-based policy and innovation, $1.5 million for planning, $81 million for research integrity, $5 million for science and technology, $56 million for sustainable public finance, and $112 million for new initiatives.

Anne Milgram worked as the Attorney General for the state of New Jersey where she worked to bring data to bear on the New Jersey state justice system and became a professor at New York University; she was recruited by the foundation to become its vice president for criminal justice. In a 2013 TED talk, she explained her work at LJAF creating tools to capture and use data to make the justice system more effective and efficient, which she called “Moneyballing crime”.

Anne Milgram. With a face that, she could be the next director of the Sundance Film Festival. Alongside her Arnold Foundation duties, she’s a technical advisor to Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. This explains a lot about that show.

An overview of criminal justice reform in the United States by GiveWell listed the Arnold Foundation as one of the top foundations in the United States working in the area, along with the Open Society Foundation, The Pew Charitable Trusts’ Public Safety Performance Project, the Ford Foundation, Atlantic Philanthropies, the Public Welfare Foundation, and the Smith Richardson Foundation.[9]

The foundation funded continuous aerial surveillance of Baltimore, Maryland.

We all knew the aerial drone craze was going to result in that.

The foundation is also linked to questionable criminal justice practices. In 2016, The Baltimore Sun reported that the foundation donated $360,000 to fund a controversial surveillance program in Baltimore conducted secret, warrantless aerial surveillance of Baltimoreans on behalf of the Baltimore Police Department. The BPD conducted the surveillance without informing elected officials or the general public, suspending the program after public revelation.

Laura and John Arnold are listed as one of the biggest benefactors to the Wikimedia Foundation.

That’s a fun fact pairing.

The foundation has funded various politically-oriented 501(c)4 organizations, including Engage Rhode Island. Many of these organizations advocate pension fund reform, encourage state and local governments to reduce benefits to workers and to invest assets in riskier investments such as hedge funds. Some have criticized the foundation’s efforts, saying that hedge fund managers collect generous sums in fees for managing the funds, while the workers are left with reduced pensions.

Okay, maybe I do have the economic skill to understand why Enron’s hedge-fund wunderkind would want to charitably help pension plans invest in hedge funds. CONFLICT OF INTEREST, hello? INSIDER TRADING? Do we even have a Securities & Exchange Commission anymore?

LJAF’s attempts at pension reform have been met with hostility, and critics have argued that they have bought out groups such as the Pew Charitable Trust, the Public Broadcasting Service, and the Brookings Institution. In March 2014, the Chronicle of Philanthropy reported that Pensions and Investments had asked the Pew Charitable Trust to stop taking money from the LJAF because of the LJAF’s support for pension reform.

One of the first projects funded by the foundation was research into obesity, which was drawn to Arnold’s attention when he heard an interview with Gary Taubes on the EconTalk podcast. Subsequent conversation between Arnold and Taubes led to the foundation funding the Nutrition Science Initiative in San Diego, where Taubes and Peter Attia and are trying to find the cause of obesity.

The cause can be found on the dollar menu of McDonald’s. They can track gym attendance too, if they feel a need to be all science-y about the topic.

The Deep State’s massive size is increasingly visible as entities like the Arnold Foundation emerge–organizations funded by shady market manipulations who exist to give cover to SJW allies in government. It’s all connected. Replacing bail with an algorithm that has already proven capable of delivering whatever results are wanted is a crucial step in forging ties between criminals and Elites.

How can we control our own communities when the likes of Arnold decide who gets out of jail free?
