We endeavor to give satisfaction

Only Nixon could go to China

July 25th, 2014 by Zen

While Feminists are a humorless bunch, any attempts by men to explain any shortcomings are immediately shouted down as vile, sexist misogyny. It is called man-splaining. Never mind, that that happens to be men’s native conversation style and would be treating them like a man.

But if a woman, or a group of intelligent women, disagree with the party line of Feminism, and start a Tumblr called, “Women Against Feminism”, and explain that they are neither victims nor oppressed, you can expect all kinds of hell to be stirred up. I will forbear the most vicious links against them, but will share ones that are still illuminating.

Hell hath no fury is not reserved purely for men who scorn women, and the most vicious, hateful name-calling is being used against them.

Feminists are insistent they don’t understand what Feminism really is while the ‘rebel scum’ insist that modern Feminism does nothing to resemble the dictionary definition. And appearently women don’t like Fem-splaining any better than Man-splaining.

A rejoinder to “We attack, you defend.”

July 24th, 2014 by Bookslinger

I think this is a proper rejoinder to anyone who attacks you or accuses you of hating them, or tries to shame you for commenting, when you publicly disagree with something that they have publicly stated/written/published.

From Meg Stout: (Her comment of July 23, 2014, 5:25 am, if the link does not take you directly there.)

” … to openly attack and demean the organization from which one has parted makes the matter public record.

And when something is a matter of public record, it appears within my [F]irst [A]mendment rights to comment on the public record. As it is within your rights to comment on my comment. However it is not within your rights to force the owners of [a blog or forum] to give you bandwidth on their website. “

Hobbes is Real

May 16th, 2014 by G.

Of course Hobbes is real. Calvin and Hobbes is not the story of one kid’s tragic psychoses that lead to him beating himself up, e.g., to maintain his delusions. It’s a story about the thin dividing line between reality and imagination. In Hobbes case the line is crossed.

Hobbes is like hobbits–he is evidence that not everything from beyond the fields we know has to be eerie or eldritch. It is in this sense, and probably only in this sense, that Calvin and Hobbes could be considered a Mormon comic.

Suicides by hanging, strangulation, and suffocation

May 11th, 2014 by Vader

Correlate extremely closely with U.S. government spending on space, science, and technology.

It’s almost the same in the Galactic Empire. Deaths by strangulation correlate closely with spending on Star Destroyers and Death Stars.

Celebrate

May 05th, 2014 by Vader

Yesterday was purportedly Star Wars Day. You know: “May the Fourth be with you.”

Fortunately for restoring balance to the Force, today is Revenge of the Fifth.

Chip off the Old Block

May 01st, 2014 by G.

The Middlest daughter (her term for herself)–she’s in second grade–just discovered for a report she’s doing that part of Niagara Falls is in Canada. She’s pretty mad about it. Pretty much causus belli is her view.
