6:00 p.m. - Today - Wellmans on Ingersoll
Okay... bloggers, readers, hangers-on - you know what to do.
See you there.
A blog dedicated to the pontification of my own peculiar libertarian ideas and the "Fisking" of the editorial stance of the Des Moines Register.
It takes one's breath away to watch feminist women at work. At the same time that they denounce traditional stereotypes they conform to them. If at the back of your sexist mind you think that women are emotional, you listen agape as professor Nancy Hopkins of MIT comes out with the threat that she will be sick if she has to hear too much of what she doesn't agree with. If you think women are suggestible, you hear it said that the mere suggestion of an innate inequality in women will keep them from stirring themselves to excel. While denouncing the feminine mystique, feminists behave as if they were devoted to it. They are women who assert their independence but still depend on men to keep women secure and comfortable while admiring their independence. Even in the gender-neutral society, men are expected by feminists to open doors for women. If men do not, they are intimidating women.Left wing feminism is just one facet of the denial of human nature and the adoption of "the blank slate". We've discovered that the theory will not hold in practice, so it morphs into religion.
The real scandal is the blatant use of homophobic rhetoric by the self-appointed Savonarolas of homo-left-wingery. It's an Animal Farm moment: the difference between a fanatic on the gay left and a fanatic on the religious right is harder and harder to discern. Just ask yourself: if a Catholic conservative blogger had found out that a liberal-leaning pseudo-pundit/reporter was a gay sex worker, had outed the guy as gay and a "hooker," published pictures of the guy naked, and demanded a response from a Democratic administration, do you think gay rights groups would be silent? They'd rightly be outraged. But the left can get away with anything, can't they? Especially homophobia.Hey, reactionaries - of either the left or right wing varieties - don't need a consistent and integrated world view. They're uh... reactionaries after all.
School administrators are the problem. They're a bunch of weak-kneed girlymen who refuse to take sides and enable child abuse. If you've got a kid who's bullying, they've almost always been in trouble and the principals and counselors know this. They don't intervene. They don't talk to the parents or find out what's going on in the home. They don't try to solve the problem. That's why they're in favor of advancing children to another grade level who cannot read, write, or compute.All I can say is right on brother man!
