Addendum

Just what the hell is all this about 'indoctrination' now?      Do the trans/homophobic and gender 'complimentarians' truly believe that babies raised in bubbles would 'naturally' grow up to be perfectly binary Barbies and Kens?  There is no universal default manhood or womanhood and never has been.   It is if anything the belief that there is such a thing that goes against "common sense".  Given the vast numbers of our species this belief in One True Manhood & Womanhood is more deranged than a heroin addicts' dying dream.  The belief in traditional gender is, in a word; superstition.  A farmer who ritually jerks off onto his fields by the light of the Spring moon may rightfully laugh at such foolish magical thinking.

And yet they have the gall to speak of "indoctrination".  And when they speak of the supposed conflict between secular education and families it is clear that they consider one's proper relationship to their own family (i.e., one's father or husband) to be one of feudal submission and view controversies such as these as part of an epic struggle between the "family" and "the world" for the sole right to impose loyalties, identities, and "Truth" upon future generations; to "indoctrinate" them if you will.  The complainers at this meaning have expressed in near so many words an entitlement for their children to believe as they do.   And while all this occurs there are trans children being subjected to hostility, exclusion, and abuse so that some adults can imagine themselves secure & "natural" in their identities and other adults can imagine that future generations shall live for the sake of aggrandizing their bones.  There is truly nothing so beautiful as unyielding morals.

Lincoln School Board Gets McCartheyed by Fox News Windmill-Slayers.

We've hit the big time in quiet old Nebraska.

My words on this matter shall be brief as this so-called problem is a very simple one. We godless liberals who favor 'gender' inclusiveness are not being mindlessly 'politically correct', in the sense that we are ignoring obvious reality in favor for some soft idyllic nicety.  It is rather the case that our position is quite indisputably the one on the side of reality and common sense.  Gender ambiguity is not a thing that liberal educators have conspiratorially invented through willpower, brainwashing and mind voodoo.  Gender ambiguity simply is and has always been.  Gender ambiguity exists, it is something we can directly observe with own eyes within others  and something that like it or not one must know we all feel within ourselves.   And at any rate if it is so their are only two "True and natural" genders; strictly biologically determined and strictly defined against each other, how then is it so that "outrages" like this could ever possibly happen?  How could the queer and transgender people we factually know to exist possibly exist?  If the "True Traditional values" really are the natural default than why should they ever require heroic culture warriors to defend them?   The fact of the matter is that it is the authoritarian right which seeks to impose a universal ideal in defiance of known reality.  It is they, if anyone, who are being "politically correct" in the way they are obviously trying to interpret divergence from their beliefs as offensive.  The "educational elites" here are simply trying to deal with people as they actually are in a systemic and civilized manner.

To get the heart of the things a little more; I recall a Fox News clip I saw a couple of weeks ago; one in which Sean Hannity said something to the effect of 'their are some schools that don't think parents have the right to instill our values in our children'.  Well; the reason for this is that parents absolutely do not have the right to instill their values in their children.  One's own identity; sexual, political, religious, cultural, is an arbitrary thing that each of us must invent from scratch for ourselves and all identities are wholly annihilated with the deaths of ourselves.  A fundamental purpose of education, (any theory of education) is to strengthen the individual's ability to invent themselves.   It this goes against paternalistic fantasies of cheating death by forcibly imposing one's own identity and  'eternal truth' on the next generation,  than fuck your fantasy.  And stop trying to poison my town with your stupid blubbering poison.

Ebola comment Sections

Good God Damn; but some people do take the threat of being made unclean by social outsiders very primaly don't they?*

Let us be perfectly cleat shall we?  On the day you do catch a virus of some kind; on the unavoidable when you will be infected with something that makes your body do disgusting things and your conscious life a constant agony, your disease will most likely come from someone among your own kind, your own children, your spouse or sexual partner, your boss, your best freind.  The people we love are the ones who make us sick.  The people we trust and rely on in times of difficulty are the ones who make us sick.  It has always been thus and I know you must have already experienced this truth directly. Why then do we insist on believing that the threat of infection must ipso facto be an exotic one?  Is the truth you've experienced directly really so painful as that?  You had might as well attempt to fly from your roof as believe that human measures of 'cleanliness' or 'civility' are things that nature and mortality care the slightest fig about.      


* There's also a common desire within these comments to believe that all bad things that happen are the result of someone's intentional will and could therefore be potentially controlled through sufficient will to punish.  The answer to this is no; you stupid assholes.

Conservatives Stand Behind the president

As much as they despise Obama it is truly heartwarming to see them so concerned for his safety , or if not that to at least worship the security apparatus around every president of wither party.  It is also truly heartwarming to see them worried that our president has been threatened; or at least angry that their fantasies of Strong Men with uniforms and guns exercising total control have been shattered; whatever the case may be.

In  all honesty though we should let Laura Ingraham's bizarre, culture war-pimping rant serve as a reminder that those who blindly assume "strength" to be the solution to and the lack of it the cause of any conceivable problem are in no sense "realist" in how they relate to danger, crime, evil or enemies.  Their worldviews are entirely premised on denying their own mortal weakness and insignificance in favor of annihilating themselves to some Great Eternal Truth or demagogues who perform being strong in the most ripely cartoonish way possible.  

In my adult life I have never been one who held to the post-Cold War consensus that these deluded fools can be more trusted in a crisis because they "understand evil".  No; they don't understand evil.  In the manner of "Fourteen Ways of Looking at a Blackshirt"   they need unquestionably evil enemies that will always be there' so that they can define themselves as positive by comparison, yet at the same time need to feel "strong" by believing they could destroy the enemy any time they wanted to; if only their soft-hearted neighbors were as strong as they were.  This mindset is the furthest thing from understanding evil or anything else; as it requires a willful denial of the reality around myself.  If the strawhippies who wanted to give our enemies flowers were actually real they would still be less dangerous in confronting threat as they would at least have the potential to gauge the strengths and vulnerabilities of both sides in an accurate manner.  Those who worship strength & their own fantasies of being stronger than thou have no such hope.
