Watch this video and answer the following question: Have the humanities gone mad?
100 genders is what they are now advocating. Not only have we moved on from the oh so enlightened gender is a socially defined construct, we have now invented 100 new genders which the BBC argues we should confuse kids with. Not bonkers in the slightest. I guess the Welsh sheep shaggers will eventually have an identity of their own. Post modernist nonsense.
Yes, yes they have. The entire West has been beset with iconoclasts
The madness seems to have its epicenter in Britain at the moment.
The Good Morning Britain clip seemed harmless enough. Piers and company pretty much steamrollered the confused dude, with even a transgendered female having a go at him. In the end it was comical and the confused dude was probably looking for somewhere to hide.
However....... the other video was disturbing. To watch adults telling these poor children about 100 genders and all that other nonsense, that is where it stops being funny.
As I've stated jillions of times before. Multi-gender freaks can do and say whatever they want to themselves and with each other.
But LEAVE THE FUCKING KIDS ALONE!
IMO, it's blatant child abuse to be forcing this bullshit propaganda on children. These multi-gender advocates (freaks) like to pound the pulpit about how THIS is offensive..... and about how THAT is offensive. Well, I got a kick out of Piers Morgan telling this confused guy that HE was being offended by being called a "cis-gender." Turnabout is fair play, don't you think?
Anything and everything that can be done to shatter traditional values, national identity, cultural values....and what are they suggesting replacing them with? A bunch of bullcrap, that's what! I don't know when the mentally ill took over but it's time for adults to quit allowing them to shit all over everything.
Child abuse? Who remembers when Dawkins said that about religion?
Britain is at the forefront in the art of subtle destruction. :)
More than you know. A quote from the article linked above.
"The Royal College of General Practitioners recognises six genders in a recent position statement.
These are male, female, gender-neutral, non-binary, gender-fluid and gender-queer."
General Practitioners, as in............... doctors?!?!? :o
Wow. The Atlantic gets wider and wider all the time.
Mehhhhhhhh....... maybe I shouldn't be so hasty about that oceanic gap.
Just saw this now about a fired teacher in Florida.
"Florida teacher fired for giving zeros to students who didn't turn in their work"
Hmmm.... I hadn't yet voted on the poll about humanity going mad.... but I may have to rethink that.
these thread itself is the indication that the humanity is at a break point. Man and woman have been borned, nobody ever saw another gender, but man and woman. There is no 3rd type of creature. let's alone 100 MORE types!
The mad thing is that following that interview the multi gender fascists set up a poll urging Morgan to be fired. Apparently a lot of people agreed and thus the weird chap was brought back for another bashing. Horrible slimy little oik with a penchant for talking nonsense. Could be one of the new genders but I wouldn't know.
I honestly can't watch another 15 minutes of this. But if Piers gets fired over this, the whole TV station should just implode. It would be useless.
He won't lose his job. He has built up support since his anti wokeness has hit the mainstream. I didn't like him before on CNN but he is somewhat fine these days. Seems to speak common sense in the face of brainwashed loonies who have built up debt in order to study utter nonsense. It is one reason councils are so terrible. Too many sociologists who cannot find employment in the real world. No way am I ever going to pay 30 pounds a week in council tax.
A bit of a side track, but who on earth thought council tax was a good idea? 1600 pounds a year for living in a house unless you are a scrounger. It is quite a bit of money considering the state of British roads and services.
Apparently it was about 500 pounds 20 years ago and has somehow tripled in that time (wages haven't) and if you do not pay they criminalize you. Just horrible really. I pay a local tax of about 6 pounds twice a year. My complex has a maintenance fee but very cheap and is used to clean buildings or to clear the snow or redo the playground. I would never pay 30 pounds a week for things I have no say in.
Council tax is a regressive and unfair tax much akin to VAT too which is double what I pay also. Where is all that money going? Well, I have a good idea, but councils are kind of gross.
It wasn't so long ago we did not pay tax and it was only brought in as a temporary measure. Now look at it.
1600 a year?? Nothing! Peanuts!
We pay 800 a month in American!
30 pounds a week to provide very little in return is not peanuts. That is money a person could invest for their own future. 1600 a year from the age of 18 compounded would give someone at least 200,000 pounds. Instead they end up with a mortgage and that damn tax. It is a con.
You are an idiot. You make your living teaching a subject which falls under 'The Humanities' . You yourself are more guilty than most of dumbing down culture and tradition and the very things you pretend to stick up for. The Classics, English, History, Art, Philosophy etc these are the things that Western Culture is built upon, ever since the Renaissance. As opposed to Divinity? Do you not understand that very simple distinction. Things like Social Anthropology are the most scientific of the humanities but are much closer to the sciences than your airy fairy EFL discipline.
It constantly amazes me how you can hold up pricks like Piers Morgan, the very icon of MSM, who hacked the phones of dead children for fucks sake, as some kind of barometer of sanity. No wonder you love sociopaths, you don't even understand yourself.
So now you have have your angry rant it is time for a question. Do you think there are more than a hundred genders? Don't be coy. You entered this thread so be a man and answer a question.
Indeed there is science in the humanities too, but whenever I raise any data you poo poo it as proof of my evil agenda. Not everything in sociology is daft, only elements. You have taken the thread title a little too seriously and as usual have come in all poopy pants.
It is not a rant or angry it is treating you and your garbage threads with the ridicule that they deserve. You are seemingly on a rush toward the tabloid bottom. Of course the idea of 100 genders is nonsense only someone so invested in identity politics and destroying Britian in order to remake it in the shape of a simpering vacuous shallow America grovelling at the feet of Trump would even need to ask such a question. I get it, you don't like people, you look down your nose at them just like your boyfriend Brock, and so you love figures like Morgan and Tommy and Stefan because they use victims of violence and abuse to make money and put portray themselves as the victims. They are your bedfellows, the sociopathic and the blaggards, the fakes who fail to see that being so invested in portraying themselves as anti-woke, is no different than virtue signalling their fake wokeness. Lame. Sad. ...truly Mad.
So, your answer is no then. Well, there you go. So you agree that the humanities are losing the plot. I will compromise and parse by saying it is some elements within the humanities.
Very interesting how Tommy Robinson and a gang of baddies was added to your curious rant.
Greta, take a valium and stop squeezing up your face like that. Like Tito says the UK is the epicenter of it all.
There are loads. Americans are generally not super rich like the US wannabe Kirk. No palaces but solid homes. The key is avoiding major ciy center areas. Not hard to do.
That wizzard of our LORD (Tolkien) group hit out with those magic staff at the balrog! Gandalf the Grey with us: frodo and Bilbo !
How exactly is Gandalf EFL? Can one not be proud of being English without being called a fascist? You seem to be of the belief that Britishness itself is defined by it's being a melange of different FOREIGN cultures...which is truly odd to me. Are other nations like that? I wonder about other nations, are they ALL a mishmash of specifically FOREIGN influence? If that's the case then why would any cultures differ at all?
Anthropology was a good idea until Communists took it over and turned it worthless. Everything they touch turns to shit.
The Unfortunate Fallout of Campus Postmodernism:
The roots of the current campus madness
In an article for Quillette.com on “Methods Behind the Campus Madness,” graduate researcher Sumantra Maitra of the University of Nottingham in England reported that 12 of the 13 academics at U.C. Berkeley who signed a letter to the chancellor protesting Yiannopoulos were from “Critical theory, Gender studies and Post-Colonial/Postmodernist/Marxist background.” This is a shift in Marxist theory from class conflict to identity politics conflict; instead of judging people by the content of their character, they are now to be judged by the color of their skin (or their ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, et cetera). “Postmodernists have tried to hijack biology, have taken over large parts of political science, almost all of anthropology, history and English,” Maitra concludes, “and have proliferated self-referential journals, citation circles, non-replicable research, and the curtailing of nuanced debate through activism and marches, instigating a bunch of gullible students to intimidate any opposing ideas.”
Students are being taught by these postmodern professors that there is no truth, that science and empirical facts are tools of oppression by the white patriarchy, and that nearly everyone in America is racist and bigoted, including their own professors, most of whom are liberals or progressives devoted to fighting these social ills.
If you truly believe "Of course the idea of 100 genders is nonsense" then why are you even arguing? Is it because Gandalf dared touch the third rail of ridiculing the Humanities which is something you hold so dear to it cannot be spoken ill of?
The SJWs the PostModernists the Cultural Marxists, whatever they should be called, whomever those "post truth" victim celebrating iconoclasts decide they are....they've ruined perfectly fine fields of study....like you care about THAT :-\ but you've got time to chastise Gandalf for daring point this bullshit out.....wow, so stunning and brave of you.
Kabing though that EFL isn't English foreign language
You mean like the Suburbs? Before you know it Fatboxingfart will be posting his video walking down thru them calling the hardworking American people who live there 'Cowards'. A bit like you shouting at single mothers in the UK from behind your sofa in SK in the arms of Stefan, shielding you from the big bad buwees.;D
Oh and isn't beanner call "you are an idiot" same as I call to alpha "you are a jackass"? Now that confusing becomes more here!
Look at yourself proclaiming
"Anthropology was a good idea until Communists took it over and turned it worthless. Everything they touch turns to shit."
Ha! Do you not see how laughable it is for you to opine on subjects you know absolutely fuck all about in order to 'Win'. It is not that you are an intellectual minnow it is that you have no honesty or morals or decency. You are willing to throw everything including your own fellow citizens and country into the garbage can just so you can say you 'won' an argument on the internet.
You are there quoting from your fascist Bible like a good little jack booted Adolf gargler and ignoring the elephant in the room.
Whoah! Haha! Beanz aka Beaner has won that exchanged with "little jack booster Adolf gargler" haha! That's truely a great one and the kiddingness is ramped up higher then before no time YET!
I suppose you're not angry again :rolleyes:
Scientific American ain't exactly political, it's more....well SCIENCE focused ergo the name. Einstein himself contributed articles to it. And they're lamenting what a certain sect of educators have done to these subjects. And your rebuttal is what?
The elephant in the room is how bellicose you are and for what reason? You have called me fascist/Nazi/etc and offered physical violence to me....why? I don't get along with you, but you take it to another level. You're quite clearly unwell.
Would it have pleased him if I had said 'Some elements within the humanities? I think not.
It is not all single mothers. In war time many children were without a father and those kids have my full consideration. But Britney, the woman with 3 kids with 3 different Dad's, needs psychological treatment which is the field you dismiss. Best to get the treatment before potentially ruining young lives.
It is all about the children. Adults who want to mess themselves up is cool with me. I just don't want to see kids struggle because of bad parents. It is a moral position to advocate only getting pregnant to someone in a position to be a good father. Not always possible, but today is a mess. Here not so much and that is why I think as I do.
So I am now a traitor too, Beanz? Blimey, hopefully you are telling the 10 million that we know of in the UK that too. Or is that privilege only for me? Did they all fail in their home countries too? I keep hearing 'economic migrant', but I earn pretty much the same as what I would back home. I am not exactly like the Polish chap heading for the land where wages are much higher. And my tie is a legal one, not based on work at all.
How is our Wizzard a trader?
I am apparently a traitor though and this gets thrown at me a lot in my life by a solitary person who is not angry. Actually, not marrying an English girl and not spreading my English genes is pretty treasonous. From the Ethno-Nationalist perspective, I am a very awful person.
However, I don't think Beanz means it like that and he would call that sick and racist which is why I said that as I like to wind him up like a clock sometimes. I think he just likes to have a dig because I left my home for a year as an experiment, decided I liked the life and settled down, and thus am a traitor unlike the 10 million migrants to the UK who I doubt love the country so much they all married English men and women. I stayed away for reasons of commitment and the heart, but my heart is English and more than ever. I think when you separate yourself from something you love, that connection actually increases. It explains why parts of England are no longer English as their love of home really overrides everything else too. I am not rude like that though and I would never inflict my ideology upon another culture and won't colonize. I respect nations staying largely as they have been and will always follow the law of the land.
I am a traitor basically because I won't come home and disagree with aspects of his ideology. He will probably launch a thousand word essay now outlining why I am an evil sociopath, but that is neither here nor there with me.
Thanks for changing the title Fenster. I liked it as it was, but some people take it far too literally for their own good.
No I meant it you traded your England for those foreign country.
