Alarming the Left

Even old double-dyed Reds are beginning to worry about how out-of-control the SJWs are, now that they're being targeted too:
The last few years have seen the dawn of a new kind of political correctness which I think of as “PC 2.0”. This is the movement that seeks to de-platform Germaine Greer and wants every trace of Cecil Rhodes removed from Oxford. It’s the kind of thinking that has made gender so confusing that I don’t even know what the right view is any more, although I’m pretty sure that my view will be the wrong one, whatever it is.

Suddenly, those of us who had never worried about being seen as politically unsound are being cast as ageing, right-wing bigots. It’s weird finding yourself on the “reactionary” side of the argument with one of the world’s most famous feminists. Yes, in the blink of an eye, Germaine and I have become those crusty old people who start spouting unacceptable platitudes after a couple of drinks.
It's going to be amusing to see how the Wil Wheatons and John Scalzis of the world start behaving once the SJWs of the SF world turn on them. No amount of snarky goodthink is going to save a rich old white guy from their tender attentions once they decide he has offended them by existing.

Once you decide to ride the tiger, it is the tiger who decides exactly when, and how, you're going to get off.

How fortunate that there is an answer for those on whom the tiger turns.

To be fair, while Scalzi has secured a nice upper middle class lifestyle for himself, Wesley isn't a rich old white guy even by SJW standards.

I hear he stands under a bridge with a sign saying "WILL ACT FOR FOOD".

Apparently the woman who played Dr Crusher had his number blocked because he kept phoning her up, begging for money and calling her "Mom".

When it comes, Scalzi, Wheaton, and all the rest will remain completely baffled. The only way they will be come clear-headed about it is to see it for what it really is which would involve them becoming anti-SJWs. Most of them would rather remain confused.

Somewhere in the world paid activists are holding up open border placards, oppose racism, burn the xenophobes type stuff, all men are rapist etc etc. They'll be really alarmed when the money runs out. The great defunding.

The rabbits still have grass in their paddock. Not for long though, or at least, so it seems. A share market domino effect/ chain reaction seems underway right now. In reality time.

Wil Wheaton's wife was just chased off of Twitter a day or two ago. She deleted her account, posted a blog entry that was by turns both whiny and vague and that is apparently that.

At KotakuInAction it was initially thought this was caused over the way she smeared the HoneyBadgerBrigade last summer, or possibly by by evull Goobergators or MRAs or MGTOWs or whatever. Nope. Nope. And Nope.

Turns out it was probably caused by some rabid pink hair who accused Mrs. #ShutUpWesley of being "fatphobic." I say "probably" because Anne Wheaton didn't say WHY she'd closed her account, but since ol' Anne is doubtless using hubby's 12,000 name Twitter blocklist I'll go out on a limb and suggest this as the cause. Not sure she can even see any of those folks.

Also, ol' Wil hasn't made a peep about this, best I can tell. And the salt floes that would crap up twitter if it had been a GG'er or similar that caused this I leave to the reader's imagination.

It's clear that this is just the first realization that they are on the menu. The fact they are still trying to fit into the SJW crowd by attempting to think about gender in the same way does not bode well for them.

Good news from the leftiverse, some are realizing that Islamist immvasion is not going to be good for them... Nationalists in Europe, be on the lookout for SJWs joining your organizations. Make sure they are told to shut up every time they get all soft and want to be nice to the enemies of civilization. Teach them to operate under your rules and not some feel good SJW code.

It is good that they realize that immvasion is bad, just be ready to toss them out the door if they aren't with the program.

For gender questioning, no Y chromosome? Female. Y chromosome? Male. Should be end of the discussion, even for those with chromosomal abnormalities (less than .1%). Achromosomal sexual identification should typically be treated as a mental disorder. science is hard, brutish and mean, not my fault.

OpenID denektenorsk January 18, 2016 7:29 AM  

So much virtue signaling at the beginning of the argument. So afraid to be called raciss or bigot. The irony is no self respecting SJW reads the Telegraph so he has no one to signal to. They call it the Torygraph and dismiss it out of hand.

The difference with Greer is that she has her own opinions. Where we find common ground is that she was quite vocal about men who chop off their dicks (It puts the lotion on its skin) and wearing dresses not being women.

Scalzi to my knowledge has no opinions of his own. His downfall will be some "problematic" language dug out of one of his books 5-10 years in the future once someone gets around to reading any of them.

Wil Wheaton - he seems desperate for attention and hitting it big like he did with ST:TNG (his character... ugh). At some point he'll foul up especially if he tries to defend his wife for fat shaming. That would be out of character though right? It shoulf be his wife sticking up for him to the meanies?

Blogger Sir Thermite January 18, 2016 7:37 AM  

I’m one of those men who'd like to see SJWs force themselves on Scalzi without his acceptance or desire and batter his white privilege and sexuality. The details of how they do it are not particularly important at the moment...all that matters is he's doesn't have any wiggle room.

Those with androgen insensitivity syndrome have biologically female phenotypes.  The rest are, I must agree, damaged, deluded or insane.  Having their delusions enabled and confirmed just makes them worse.

Science is none of those things, and you are actually talking about truth.  The truth is neither brutish nor mean.  It has no feelings or motives, it simply is.  It's people who have a hard time with it.

SJW being feminine minded then probably hate one another with a white hot intensity, but thank god for Cucks who always played the "enemy", because lordy, lordy it would be a shame if they turned on one another or were helped to do so.

Until the Talented Tenth takes some responsibility for their people and is ashamed for their behavior, nothing will change.

In the last 50 years of desegregation (starting with Mr. Brown of Brown v. Board of Education) they have dedicated their lives to abandoning their people, moving in with the white man, and blaming white people for black dysfunction.

They have no shame and no responsibility any more.

It was fascinating watching a 'Scorpion'episode, the go-back-to-college one, where the lead of the ensemble takes to task some drama students.

"Gender, blah, blah'
"No, i'm accurate. See dictionary...."
"That's microagression."

Witness his utter lack of chivalry towards Mrs ShutUp. Maybe they are hugging as they cry together about the meanies. Mind you, reading her resignation letter it seems like her life is so wonderfully wonderful I don't understand why she'd need twatter in it at all.

Her problem is that it just wasn't as wonderful as her wonderful life and that's just not fair! If she's involved it must be wonderful. All those hateful plebs daring to not have wonderful lives - oh the humanity!

I agree. Huge tell right here:

His only concern was not being correct, but being "politically sound". And he never had to worry about that, because he was far far to the left. This is the world we live in: status signaling all the way down.

What your political opinion is for is to provide you with a social status in the right circles. It is certainly not meant as a reflection of reality or as means to make society better. It's all about you and your social status. Just find out which way the wind blows, and signal hard in that direction, and you'll never have to worry.

Maybe I missed it if it has happened. But I'm very certain there is a dark, dark secret somewhere in Wil Wheaton's past. To use an old cliche, a wardrobe full of skeletons. He's way too interested in virtue signaling to the left and he is so emotionally fragile that it's going to be something unexpectedly weird when it comes out.

Of course, I won't dare speculate. He's the type of faggot to have his name searched and try to sue. I'm honestly surprised he hasn't tried to have any #GG people served yet.

I can't bring myself to follow Scalzi directly, but I enjoy your updates on him here. He's the bell cow of the whole movement. As "progressives" define themselves as being the "radicals" in a zeitgeist, it'll be all kinds of fun when they flip. Today's blue-haired bicurious vegan slam poet is tomorrow's obergruppenfuhrer, and you'll know the change is coming when Scalzi starts wondering if it's time for a second look at _____. I wonder if the Germans will invent a word for "that brief blank space on the Prius's bumper, between when the 'Coexist' sticker comes off and the Confederate flag sticker goes on"?

Listen carefully and you'll hear the world's smallest violin playing for him. At 47, if you are worried about your political correctness you have wasted the last 25 years of your life. If your striving to get back to being politically correct, 47 years have been wasted. From the article, it doesn't sound like he has ever left the time preferences of a teen drug user.

What do you think 13 year old Wil might have been required to do in order to land the part in Stand by Me? River Phoenix OD himself in the early 90s. Another Stand by Me alum, Corey Feldman, has admitted that he was the victim of pedophilia in the 80s and confirmed his now deceased friend (also OD) Corey Hiam was as well.

Wil is probably more in need of our prayers than he is our anger. Given his mental problems (which he has blogged about) I would lay odds he still hasn't come to terms of what happened to him.

Vox's opening paragraph is right on point, except for those who have bought into the feminist nonsense and propaganda of equality of the sexes.

Inevitably these promotions of women in STEM fields leads to affirmative action programs where human resource managers put their fingers on the scales to hire women in disproportionate numbers compared to their qualifications. Take a couple of the auto companies …

wardsauto ...

" … He says since 1988, Chrysler's policy has been to make half of its engineering hires minorities or women. At GM 57% of job offers made to engineering students last fall went to minorities and women..."

Are we really to imagine that 57% of the qualified applicants are women and minorities? Yup, and I have a bridge to sell.

These hiring affirmative action programs (read -- hiring discrimination programs against men) at GM have been going on since the 1980's. When you build a company on the hiring and promoting of people for political reasons, rather than excellence and the ability to get the job done -- remember the GM bankruptcy? -- that is what happens. You end up not competing with companies that don't do this type of hiring/promoting, or level of it. If a company starts using gender or ethnicity to press the scales one way in their hiring and promoting practices, then is it using less merit in these -- there is no way around this stubborn fact. The "benefited" groups will be employees that are not as qualified for the job as others, and inevitably, everyone loses as these less qualified people (the favored groups) are put into positions where they fail or perform poorly. This leads to poorer products, a company that makes less money, and maybe even eventually fails. Companies like GM needs to abandon their affirmative action programs to compete with companies and countries that have hiring systems based on more competitive standards.

It's quite obvious that men are more passionate about some fields of endeavor than women for anyone that takes the time to look, and passion = interest = excellence. In my university days I frequently would stay up all night working on various computer problems with a couple of friends. I've never seen a woman in some field of endeavor in the sciences that they would give up so much sleep just to solve problems because they had such and interest and passion in that area. They may exist -- but they are rare.

How many women do you see moding engines, swapping camshafts, installing after-market brakes, shocks, exhaust systems, or installing tripped-up stereo systems? Basically nil. How about women building motorbikes or restoring automobiles from the ground up? Almost nil. How many women do you see that have a real passion/interest for things in engineering/design, such that in their spare time they have hobbies where they build and engineer things? Rare again. Go to just about any auto forum and it's generally 95%+ males or more doing the posting. This shows who has a passion/interest in the auto industry. Go to a technical auto-forum where they are discussing things like camshafts, transmissions, performance modifications, and the gender of the posters will likely be in the area of 99.0%+ male. If men = women in all respects, then where are all the women that have a passion and interest for these things? Something is terribly wrong with the feminist gender equality picture.
