    Nutty allsorts

    Most people are respectable, reasonable, mentally and emotionally balanced, and represent the middle ground that keep the peace by tolerating departure and deviants on both sides.

    Some will leap to defend the ridiculous, for the sake of argument to demonstrate their smarts, or because anything outside of their comfort zone represents a mortal threat, or sometimes scary as it sounds because they actually support the absurd and the more absurd the better and the more you disagree the more absurd you appear to them. These are the nutty allsorts, aka the PC brigade, the sjw, the minions which exist for others to point at and larf.

    All good fun, and let's kick off with the university lecturer that was reported to police for a 'hate crime', after posting on Instagram one line from a movie; “Spent this morning telling a group of visiting American students that we don’t really hate the English, but that they are wankers. Welcome to Scotland.” - Trainspotting

    Police confirmed that officers were called in to investigate the post after a complaint...thankfully, it was later reported: “A full investigation was conducted and it was established that no crime had been committed. However, the matter was recorded as a hate incident. No further police action was required.”

    https://news.yahoo.com/lecturer-repo...QDBHNlYwNzcg--

    Is this a victory for common sense, or abject defeat of common sense by simple virtue that the police were at all involved?

    How slim is the margin between a 'full investigation' that clears the alleged offender, and with precisely the same variables one that destroys their career and life?

    Should those who reported the incident be admired for stepping up to nurture their environment toward perfection, or subject to action for wasting police time and oxygen, or given counselling?

    An NHS hospital consultant was accused of sexism after praising a father for ‘manfully’ stepping in to bring his daughter for an appointment when his wife was unavailable.


    The three-year-old’s parents complained, saying the word ‘manfully’ was sexist because it implied ‘women are there to do the childcare’ and that ‘fathers and mothers should have equal responsibility for taking their children to hospital appointments’.


    The NHS Foundation Trust, which runs the hospital, and the paediatric surgeon involved had to apologise.

    How far was this man who had studied for years to become a surgeon, from losing his job, credentials and having his life shredded?

    In the same report ^, Suffolk council road engineers were criticised for using the phrase ‘cat’s eyes’, because some people may have thought cats had been butchered, and linking the council as party to animal cruelty.

    And, a female Cambridge academic urged colleagues not to use words such as ‘genius’, ‘brilliant’ or ‘flair’ for fear of alienating female students because ‘they’re associated with men and carry assumptions of gender inequality’.

    Would you risk being charged with a hate crime and its consequences by falling off your chair laughing at this idiot?

    How daft should one be to enter the pc priesthood?

    The NUS Women’s Campaign banned applause, over concerns that it could trigger anxiety among nervous students. Whooping and cheering have also raised concerns. Instead, politically-correct students are urged to show support for a speaker with ‘jazz hands’ (waving hands in the air in an erratic manner).

    According to Cardiff Metropolitan University’s code of practice, 'forefathers' is sexist for including the gender-exclusive ‘fathers’, and should be replaced by ‘ancestors’ or ‘forebears’.

    Genius is one of many words that a Brit history lecturer at Cambridge says should be discouraged, as it ‘carries assumptions of gender inequality and also of class and ethnicity’.

    Safest to stay dumb and merge with the crowd.

    Has it occurred to you that some media outlets tailor stories to appeal to the prejudices of their audience?

    The over-emotive way you word that final question suggests you've learned something from following them avidly, but perhaps not the most important thing.

    Maybe you need a hobby.

    Last year, a senior professor at a Yale college had to resign after he and his wife were accused of ‘creating space for violence’ and of trivialising students’ concerns, by suggesting that people could turn away if they felt offended by students in ‘culturally inappropriate’ fancy dress such as Mexican or Native American outfits.

    Career gone, for upsetting the crybabies.

    Drag queens banned from a Gay Pride event in Glasgow, in case they caused offence to trannies.

    Tranny lobbyists upset at Radio 4 Woman’s Hour presenter saying that men who had undergone sex-change operations could not claim to be ‘real women’ since they did not have ‘the experience of growing up female’.

    The madness of one drives others mad!

    Racist/sexist/x'ist micro-aggression, new language for the real smart, means not quite racist like fcuk off wog, but more like potentially offensive hate speech like ‘where are you from?’ or ‘where were you born?’ which UCBerkeley has decreed are ‘a covert way to say you don’t belong here’.

    2015, yoga sessions banned by the Student Federation of the Uni of Ottawa, because it amounts to Western ‘cultural appropriation’ of a practice with its origins in Indian Hinduism, which involves cultural issues because of ‘oppression and cultural genocide due to colonialism and western supremacy’.

    Someone smack me!

    A Cornwall council banned Punch and Judy shows after women's rights activists mounted a protest against its violent plot.


    Women handed out leaflets to children as young as four, offering "free confidential support to any woman, including bisexual or lesbian, who is experiencing domestic violence".

    Not just Cornwall, other places also have crazies that cringe over Punch's violent tendencies.

    Any teachers here? Are you an insensitive bastard that marks homework in red? Don't you know this could upset your kids and scar them for life? Be cool like schools in the West Midlands, use a soothing shade of green.

    I have diagnosed myself as confused. As confused as a bag of cut snakes.

    These are imaginary snakes and were unharmed by my confusion.

    Butterfly has a low tolerance for understanding issues that are more complex than they first appear. He is not to be condemned for this. He is tolerated on here, to offer him some form of imaginary security.
    It has to be imaginary for the moderators to afford it.

    Is Jabir still desperately looking for validation? He does that every time he leaves the echo chamber and experiences the laughter and contempt of the real world. He'll toddle off back to his Facebook circle-jerks and the comments pages of the more rabid newspapers soon enough.
