Now that I think of it, I seem to remember a page in Marx where he puts animals and even Nature under the proletariat, as "exploited". :mrgreen:

That was amusing, but alas, not actually correct:

TL;DR, it was about revising the language of the committee rules to replace "he or she" with "they", not about "banning" the use of gendered pronouns wholesale.

Did he? Maybe the point was that capitalists were treating the workers "like animals" or some such?

He also said that bourgeois women were part of the proletariat but you don't see "Marrxist" feminists quoting that bit. Because the whole "proletariat" thing is out of fashion.

Well yes, they were banned in the committee. What on earth did you think it referred to?

Since you didn't actually read the Snopes, they changed some words in a book of rules. Specifically they edited the book to replace "he or she" with "they". There was no "ban" on any words.

A Green MSP repeated his social media quote on BBC2's Politics Live that Sir Winston Churchill was "a white supremacist and a mass murderer”.
But Ross Greer was told by Conservative deputy chairman that his tweet was the "most superficial and inaccurate assessment” of the wartime PM.
And columnist Isabel Hardman said the claims were part of the “Miley Cyrus-isation of politics” with people seeking attention with their posts, which was "not particularly helpful".
But the MSP replied: “Heaven forbid, I tweet like a 24-year-old, because I am a 24-year-old."

Lots of people back in the 1940s thought Churchill was the bad guy, too. :)

America 2019. Fucking scary. I don't even like the pledge, but their reasons are so fucking stupid.

And the way they treated that poor woman...

How do reverse course from this kind of maoism-lite?

The eastern bloc lady tried to tell them what it was like, and recite the pledge with her time at the mic.

She was jeered and shouted down by the SJW mob who reduced her to tears.

I mean seriously, way to confirm every right wing echo chambers' fears of marxist indoctrination at universities.

I think the right wing cried wolf so long about "campus indoctrination" that when it really started happening for realz nobody would listen.

Now we have all these Degreed people with Machiavellian justification for SJW tactics.

The pendulum swings perpetually. All this bullshit on national level led to Trump. You may not notice it as easy on local levels -- who gives a fuck about Santa Barbara? -- but I assure you they will get their turn as well...if they don't eat each other first.

They've made disagreement "white nationalist" and anyone who wrongthinks is racist.

I'm unsure how they backpedal from this unless the thought leaders set them straight.

Sooo... how long til Hillary tells them to stop acting this way? Who is their thought leader?

They democratized thought leadership to 1000 Shaun King type twitter race baiters and lost control.

If Obama, told them them stand down, they would just say it's because he's half white and write him off.

Similar assholes on other side of the spectrum and country put up confederate flags, monuments, 10 commandments, and all kinds of absurd nonsense on public property. Eventually someone puts a stop to their idiocy. But there's a long time between start and eventually.

Exactly, they will consume each other by going down this path. It's inherently self-destructive.

Glass ceiling for dogs? Males win Westminster almost twice as often

NEW YORK (Reuters) - After the German shepherd Rumor won the top prize at last year's Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York, she had her first litter of puppies and retired from competition, like many female show dogs.

By contrast, most top male show dogs can keep competing for years, and it is no coincidence that they also win "Best in Show" in the prestigious annual competition far more often than females, breeders and handlers said as they prepared for this year's show, which opens Monday, Feb. 12 in New York.

"Now she won't show again, she's done," said Gail Miller Bisher, a spokeswoman for the Westminster Kennel Club, referring to Rumor. "But males can keep going. They can be used as stud and continue showing and keep their coat and keep their shape of body and all that."

Female dogs, known in pure-bred circles as "bitches," have snared Best in Show at Westminster 39 times since the award was first given in 1907. Males, known simply as "dogs," have been victorious 71 times, almost twice as often.

Phoenix restaurant says this is a photo of coal miners. But I see offensive blackface

It is a photo of coal miners with sooty faces covered with coal dust. The author doesn't dispute that. He still wants the photo removed because it reminds him of blackface.

We live in the day and age of passive aggressive tyranny.

It all starts with "why X is problematic" and relies on search engine optimization to create the appearance of issues where there are none to try to get other to modify themselves in ways we wish.

It's not even about tolerance. It's purely about control and seeing if you have can exert it.

The revolution begins in the year zero.

Anything before that is problematic.
