David Thompson: Because this simply can’t be posted too often

Fuck the Patriarchy

Go read the whole post and the comments. David has a really wonderful little community over there.

Winner of national transgender beauty pageant stripped of her title because she was ‘not transgender enough’

Apparently drag queens are not really transgender.

People are so effed up. And who has the time to sort through the differences between drag queens and man-to-woman transgenders?

I confess to a giggle or two while reading the article.

Hatefacts

Posted, with no comment:

Then comes the second, native-born generation. Drawn from a low-IQ population that’s been accumulating genetic defects via a tradition of cousin marriage since the Bronze Age, and raised in a religion totally at odds with Western ideas of self-actualization, they are fidgety misfits. They come to hate the country of their birth, and in extreme cases act out the hatred like this.

Ok, I’m going to comment. This is the sort of thing writing that will, if you were to allow it to inform your opinion of current events, keep you from being invited to dinner parties.

Firewatcher update

More Crime Think from Sailer.

In the comment thread there is this hilarious exchange:

I don’t think I’ve laughed so much at the written word in a long time.

Citizen of the World

I was talking to a woman in the showroom this afternoon. I’m not really good with accents, but I think she was Australian. In kitchen design I believe it is important to understand lifestyles, food preferences, family traditions, etc. So, not being completely confident of my knowledge of accents, I asked, “Where are you from?”

She replied, “I’m a citizen of the world.”

Really. That is a direct quote.

Pretentious bitch.

I probably won’t be selling her a kitchen.

I will have to tell the Allmilmö story sometime.

What the women of Syria think about the men leaving them behind

You won’t see this sort of report from the typical news outlet:

I don’t think that many know that those streaming into Europe are mostly men of military age.

Jury Finds for 12-Year-Old In Closely Watched Hugging Case

If the phrase “reasonable eight-year-old” strikes you as an oxymoron, you’ve probably hit on the reason why most people seem to think this case is ridiculous.

Lowering the Bar

Go read the whole thing. It is quite funny.

I bet she won’t be invited to Thanksgiving Dinner.

Women should dress modestly or expect to ‘entice a rapist’

I call bullshit:

She discloses in a new memoir how she was abducted and sexually assaulted by a motorcycle gang in Ohio in the early 1970s – but concludes it was “all my doing” because of the way she was dressed and the fact that she was under the influence of drugs.

Women should dress modestly or expect to ‘entice a rapist’ – claims singer Chrissie Hynde – Telegraph

This seems awfully convenient. Just a little spice to sell some books?

I’ve followed The Pretenders since the late 70″s and I’ve never heard this story before.

The Coming Middle-Class Anarchy

This is an important follow on to the Codevilla piece below. Again, many of you have read this. For some it is just another spot on the internet where you can find it. Please pass it along.

Gonzalo Lira: The Coming Middle-Class Anarchy. A sample:

However, three months later, out of the blue, they got a letter from their bank, Wells Fargo: It said that, after further review, Brian and Ilsa had in fact not qualified for HAMP. Therefore, their mortgage would go back to the old rate. Not only that, they now owed the difference for the three months when they had paid the lowered mortgage—and to add insult to injury, they were assessed a “penalty for non-payment”.

Really go read the whole thing. And all of the addenda.

I’ve saved the posts here in a small effort to make certain this story stays alive.

I’ve seen this in a few places…

And thought I would share.
