WOMEN ARE MISSING A HUGE OPPORTUNITY IN SELF-IDENTIFYING GENDER
- Tell your boss you identify as male and demand a pay rise.
- Stop doing child care and housework as you now identify as male.
- Don’t breastfeed as you now identify as male. Suggest your husband/partner/whatever he/they/it takes hormones and takes over the job.
- Give up sex with men as you now identify as male.
- Give up hairdos, make-up and sexy clothes.
- Sex “workers” – de-sex your appearance and demand dominant roles where the other party gets degraded.
- Learn how to fight and shoot and go round in gangs to protect yourself and your turf.
- Form and join militant political groups to selfishly and exclusively fight for your rights, regardless of who you trample in the process. Accuse all who disagree with you of “hate” crimes.
- Refuse to bear children.
- Put yourself first.
As women you are routinely oppressed. As men you can reject all the biological and social handicaps that hold you down.
Of course our rulers are relying on women being too collectively dumb and passive to seize this great political opportunity.
there is a teeney weeney problem with subjective self-identification being upheld by law.
It establishes a new strong precedent of raising subjective opionion above fact. Subjective opinions can now be used to trump fact and truth.
Our rulers are now telling us that fact and truth are irrelevant. What is fact is what they say it is. The old con trick of tyrants.
Once this precedent is established, accepted and normalised, people will have lost the foundation of contesting injustice by arguing from facts and presenting evidence. The truth will be what the rulers say it is and contradictory views will be deemed irrelevant or criminal.
DO WE REALLY WANT TO GIVE OUR RULERS A CARTE BLANCE TO DEFINE REALITY?
“We’re all in this together” was without doubt the most horrible slogan at the last election, given how disingenuous it sounded when uttered by George Osborne and other frontbench Conservatives. It was, according to one author, “grotesquely implausible”. It suggests that the costs of the “necessary” austerity measures would be borne by all, and that everyone would pay their fair share. One would imagine that this means those responsible for the financial crisis itself – that is, those who got rich and benefited disproportionately in the bubble years – would bear the brunt of what would euphemistically be called “structural reform”. We now know that was not the case.
The Resolution Foundation recently found that inequality in the UK has increased over the past 15 years, just as it grew in the 1980s. The top 1% of earners now absorbs 10p in every pound of income…

A homeless man died tragically, earlier this week while sleeping rough in freezing temperatures in Nottinghamshire. He was known as Ben to locals, and had been sleeping in a tent near Saint Swithun’s Church in Retford. He was found in the early hours of Tuesday morning, as freezing temperatures swept across the county due to the ‘Beast from the East’ storm.
Police confirmed that they were made aware of a ‘sudden death’ near to the church by the ambulance services at 8.40am on Tuesday (February 27).
One local resident in the area, Kenny Roach, said he knew Ben well and had previously helped him out with money and food.
“He contacted me last week just before he came out of hospital – he had pneumonia,” he said.
Two local scout leaders, Hazel and Kenny Newstead said they both knew Ben well.
“We’re so shocked and saddened by this. He seemed to…

Under the guise of preventing child abuse, lawmakers in Maryland have introduced a bill that will allow the state to intrude in the lives of innocent families, keeping tabs on them, and destroying their right to privacy.
The bill, HB 1798 – County Boards of Education – Home Instruction Program – Observation of Instruction and Reporting of Abuse and Neglect, lays out some fairly ominous requirements that will persecute otherwise entirely innocent families for doing nothing other than teaching their children at home.
According to the bill’s text, it will establish grounds for parents to essentially register with the state and be subject to some of the same constraints as the public education system. But that is only the beginning. This bill also lays out the framework for involuntary home inspections in which state agents will enter a family’s home multiple times a year—likely unannounced—and observe…

This is becoming the norm for America. The dead cannot testify, and defendants testify what he or she thought the deceased was going to do that caused them to use discretion to take human life. Hugh Barry, 32-years old, had been charged with murder, manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide for the killing of 66-year old […]
John Grisham, lawyer and writer, has a column in the LA Times: It is too easy to convict an innocent person. The rate of wrongful convictions in the United States is estimated to be somewhere between 2% to 10%. That may sound low, but when applied to a prison population of 2.3 million, the numbers […]
Amid the economic and personal struggles confronting people as they deal with forces that sometimes appear beyond their ability to manage or control, I find myself thinking a lot about the abuse of power and authority in our society. Recently these ruminations were triggered by an old book and two January magazine cover stories:
Bertram Gross, Friendly Fascism
Fascism is such an overused word in our tear-down political discourse that I’m instantly suspect of any book that uses it in the title. But Bertram Gross’s Friendly Fascism: The New Face of Power in America (1982), is becoming one of the most remarkably prescient books I’ve ever encountered about politics and society.
Gross was a social science professor and public servant who served in two presidential administrations. In Friendly Fascism, he warned of two conflicting trends in American society, as he set out in the preface to his 1982 edition:
The first is a slow…
