We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I’m sick of it all, especially the obsessions of the Sunday New York Times Magazine, whose editors seem to have great difficulty getting their heads out of their, or other people’s, crotches. I am unashamedly old-fashioned: I think public discussion of intimate sexual matters is unseemly, a word that has become as quaint as outlandish mass-culture fare has become hideously sexualized. I don’t care if the subject to hand is essentially heterosexual in nature, or homosexual, transsexual, omnisexual, multisexual, interspecies-sexual, or all the other kinds of sexual that I’m sure exist but know nothing about. I could not give a damn what consenting adults do with their genitalia in private, but I don’t need or want to hear about it in public—and these days you nearly have to hole up in a mountain cave somewhere to escape it.
The Episcopal church was hijacked a couple decades ago by homesexual activists, it no longer exists it is now merely a shell being used to preach homosexuality
"Standards for a Diversity Leader". "lots of chief diversity officers are highly qualified...". Ironically the only qualifications is that you cannot be a white male and you must hate white males.
"Nobody Has Any Idea How Disastrous It's Going To Be" Warns California Water Expert.
California goes through cycles of excessively dry and excessively wet weather. It is now in a dry cycle. Thanks to pseudo-environmentalists and willing politicians every effort has been made to make sure California could not survive the next dry cycle intact. They succeeded. Who is suprised?
Mead makes some good points but it also devolves into "old people" lamenting the world the wrought. He can't comprehend why the sex assault, consent, etc. are presented asexually. To him, the heterosexual male is the bad guy, others cannot be. It was a surprising revelation. I would have thought he was more informed and open-minded than the average campus feminist. Must be of an age.
But now, after his mid-Boomers did what they bring sex to the forefront of society, we get this lament. Not unlike, and he partially joins in, those who welcomed the surveillance society as keeping those others from acting out in public, but not realizing that those born under the watchful eye would find the best course to just not keep anything private. The best way to avoid "shame" is not to not do it but to make it not shameful, at least in your social group.
The old people lament. I'll probably soon join them as they aren't that much older than me.
Regarding diversity officer standards: Morehouse asked rhetorically about dealing “with conflict resolution as it relates to climate.” Does he mean the climate, or is there some other meaning? And how exactly does conflict resolution relate to climate? As universities and organizations write standards, one hopes they will realize the un-necessity of diversity and inclusivity positions. Nah. Won’t happen.
