University Professor: There are no significant biological differences between races or genders. Everyone was interchangeable right up until European white supremacist patriarchal culture established a prevailing narrative that socially constructed whatever differences are perceived today.

(Or something like that.)

"The Ballad of Buster Scruggs"

https://www.netflix.com/title/80200267

Coen brothers movie. Watched it a couple nights ago (it's a collection of 6 short stories threaded by a common theme). I'm still processing it. Definitely worthwhile if you're familiar with (and enjoy) their oeuvre. (Blood Simple, Raising Arizona, Fargo, Burn After Reading, No Country for Old Men; etc.)

Interesting when someone from the U.K. can articulate a defense of the U.S. first constitutional amendment, better than presumably 99% of our own electorate:

So, unsurprisingly, some percentage of this was fairly 'standard' shredding; but there were a few segments that gave me that authentic jaw-dropping :WTF: feeling.

Sorry to hear that, that's rough. (We lost an especially beloved pet in 2017 to cancer. Still miss him.)

It's my opinion that this recent social attitude adjustment towards the championing of diversity is a marketing move and a corporate trend.

Agreed the corps. have glommed onto this for their own cynically exploitative reasons; though the ideological trend seems to have decades-old origins.

The following 'tweet' jumps into the middle of a thread exploring why payment companies (Patreon, Stripe, PayPal, MasterCard, etc.) have been observed to be acting in concert to shut down counter-narrative sites and content creators:


https://twitter.com/nickmon1112/status/1078397471141842945 (may take some amount of scrolling to find the beginning)



(Note that Robert Spencer—not to be confused with Richard Spencer—runs a site documenting Islamic extremism.)


Patreon has been acting particularly strangely lately, banning creators who they on the one hand concede didn't break their Terms of Service, but on the other hand they keep alluding to "extra layers" that must be taken into account, for Patreon to participate in the Global Payment Network:

I've never heard of this news source, but they said it came from the census bureau.

KUSI is an independent TV station in San Diego; been around since the early 80's. (Don't know their political leanings, haven't watched TV news in ages.)

Mildly surprised at the "least educated" metric for California. Rather figured we'd be #1 for highest population of "least-useful-degree holders" (e.g. gender studies; etc.)
