Silly Saturday


Apparently Mother Nature aspires to harass and discriminate against females,

Modern society has become so obsessed with finding gender discrimination that we are now finding it in animal behavior.

First let me point out that this is being done by just a handful of researchers, in a single scientific journal. Science isn’t (I hope) suddenly going to lurch toward explaining almost every behavior as having to do with sexism.

The researchers have suggested that one of the reasons that females in the animal world are not as colorful or pretty as males of the same species is so that they can avoid sexual harassment. Big eyeroll.
It’s a little more nuanced then that. Basically the researchers are saying that if female animals were more “ornamental,” it would take energy away from producing and caring for eggs because they would have to fight off more male suitors.

“We suggest that female ornaments could lead to increased sexual harassment by males and this could be especially costly to the number of offspring you leave behind,” said one of the researchers, Professor David Hosken of the University of Exeter in England. “The energetic cost of harassment — by either avoiding males or dealing with unnecessary sexual attention — would reduce your egg production.”

Here are some of the other theories for why female animals just aren’t as pretty to look at as males (all of which I find more believable):

Males are the ones competing for females, so they need to look good to do so and display the best genes for mating.
Females are less colorful so that they can blend in with their surroundings — camouflage — and better protect their eggs.
Lots of color and ornamentation would reduce female fertility, as they would have to exert more energy to produce those ornaments.
Hosken wanted to make clear that he and his fellow researchers “are not suggesting that male harassment of attractive females is the only explanation for lack of sexual ornamentation … but want to alert researchers to the idea that this could be a contributing factor.”

I’ll take Hosken at his word, but this does seem like just another excuse to use “sexual harassment” as a way of explaining human behavior.

Here is your mission: describe other cases where Mother Nature has it in for females.  We want to be thorough here.  For a compilation of these will be presented to Mother Nature to show that she favors her Sons over her Daughters.  Perhaps she does not have the Feminine Imperative built-in.

    Right-leaning websites and blogs were some of the first to pounce — on students for what critics deemed excessive sensitivity and on the college’s president and administration for taking the students seriously. But criticism spread all over. Even headlines from national news organizations like CBS, which proclaimed, “University students ‘in pain’ after ‘Trump 2016’ chalked on campus,” seem to have a bit of an edge to them. Even Trump-hating Gawker chimed in to say simply, “Don’t go to Emory.”
    Many of those criticizing the Emory students said the messages were par for the course in a campaign year and that if students can chalk their support for Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders, they should be able to chalk support for Trump. Emory is now stressing that it has no plans to take action against anyone for chalking, and that concerns were not because of the views of the person who chalked but because some of the pro-Trump statements were not made in places where chalking is permitted.

    On Sweden’s government-funded television channel (based on mandatory license fees, like the BBC), they are celebrating diversity – even at the cost of altering the country’s national anthem. In a long and horrifying chronicle of recent events in Sweden related to arrival of “refugees” who are altering the ethnic composition of the country, the Gatestone Institute reports on this startling level of accommodation.

    The people at the public television channel Sveriges Television seem to be working hard to alienate the Swedish people. First, they chose a Muslim, Gina Dirawi, as last year’s Christmas Show host; two months later, Dirawi hosted Sweden’s most popular TV show — the music contest Melodifestivalen. This show selects the song that will compete in the next Eurovision Song Contest. During the show, Dirawi and a children’s choir sang Sweden’s national anthem “Thou ancient, Thou free” (“Du gamla, du fria”), but with the lyrics partly rewritten. Instead of “I want to live, I want to die in the North”, they sang, “I want to live, I want to die on Earth.” The show’s producer, Edvard Sillén, explained to the newspaper Göteborgs-Posten: “Melodifestivalen is not for those who get upset if the national anthem is changed. The focus should be on the people of this country who have ‘different roots.’

    Had Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign for the White House somehow infiltrated the ranks of Emory’s student activists and blackmailed the university’s President James W. Wagner, it could scarcely have orchestrated a spectacle more helpful to Trump’s prospects, or damaging to the values that protect vulnerable groups, than what they accomplished on their own this week. After someone wrote “Trump 2016” in colored chalk around campus, several dozen student demonstrators objected that the banal campaign message scared, upset, or offended them, and administrators responded by going Orwellian.

    Pitch for Hillary she will,

    Rosie O’Donnell to headline fundraiser for Hillary Clinton

    Rosie O’Donnell is set to headline a fundraiser to support Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign along with other supporters next week in New York City.

    The former host of “The View” is set to join Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, Jim Obergefell and Cynthia Nixon to support Clinton next Wednesday as she looks to sew up the Democratic nomination during contests in April. Eight states are set to decide on delegates throughout the month, including Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Maryland and New York, where Clinton served for eight years as a U.S. senator.

    O’Donnell pushed news of the fundraiser on her social media accounts.

    The news comes as Clinton looks to a general election matchup with Donald Trump, whom O’Donnell has engaged in a decade-long feud. It even cropped up at the first Republican debate when Fox News’ Megyn Kelly asked Trump about his past comments about women in which he called them “fat pigs” and “disgusting animals.” Trump responded that the remarks were directed at “only Rosie O’Donnell.”

    http://daily-iowan.com/2016/03/23/racist-allegories-in-disney-films/

    For many of our generation, Disney movies have been the classics that have contributed to our childhood nostalgia.

    The newer films released by Disney do not seem to inspire the same feeling of nostalgia as before. In fact, the morals ingrained in them do not seem to make sense. In the time in which everything is looked at with a microscope, it seems that Disney tried to pull a fast one with Zootopia.

    Zootopia is a film about a young rabbit, Judy Hopps, and her dream to join the police force in the world populated by anthropomorphic mammals. Judy is denied a high position in the police force and is assigned meter-maid duty. All animals are bipedal regardless of their species. The animals that are usually prey in the animal kingdom are the dominant force and look down upon the predators. Throughout the whole world of Zootopia, the predators are bullied by the prey, and this is an amazing shift from reality. There is a strange occurrence happening in the film that involves many predators disappearing and going “savage.” Going savage includes going back to their natural state, which means going back on all fours and attacking prey.

    I believe the message present in the film is an allegory to the current status of the white population in contemporary society. The majority of the people who were involved in the writing of this film were white. This aligns with my idea of the allegory present in the movie. The prey are akin to minorities of the world, in the way that they get preyed on by the predators, which are white people.

    In the real world, this can be proved by the many killings of innocent minorities without any legal action taken. Many people know of the power that white America has over the country. Representation in media and other outlets is mainly whitewashed, and it is difficult to find accurate portrayals of minorities.

    The United States was in fact stolen from the Native Americans. I think this movie is a call to arms for the dominant group of the world (white people) to take control of what was supposedly theirs. This is not the message that Disney should be either subconsciously or consciously inserting into its films, even though there is a sordid history with the messages present in their past films.

    The depictions of minorities in Disney’s movies have always been lacking. In the Princess and the Frog, the “princess” protagonist is portrayed as a lowly frog for the majority of the movie. In Aladdin, Middle Easterners are portrayed as “barbaric” in the movie’s opening song. That the minorities are prey is similar to the way that minorities have always been portrayed: as weak.

    Disney needs to be more careful with the message it sends in its movies. Children are impressionable, and people such as me with younger family members will watch these movies and realize that there is apparent racism in the films. Disney needs to diversify its writing team to allow for an equal and accurate representation of minorities in the world.

    More broken justice system news. What happened to the glories of culty-multi?

    http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/03/27/father-banned-from-taking-his-son-to-church-because-ex-wife-is-muslim/

    A British father has been banned from taking his nine year old son to church, as his ex-wife is a Muslim. The ruling stipulates he must also feed the boy Halal food and assure him he is an ordinary Muslim boy.

    The father has been threatened with loss of custody if he breaks the ban – but he has vowed to challenge the ruling, saying that his son is being brainwashed into Islam and that he doesn’t want him becoming a “dumb sheep”.

    The father, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was raised as a Muslim by his strict Pakistani immigrant parents. But he has rejected the faith of his birth, and said he and his wife led a “Western lifestyle” while married.

    Following his divorce he has been forging close connections to his local Christian community and would like his son to attend with him, hoping to broadening his world-view. But his ex-wife has secured a court order by District Judge Williscroft at Derby County Court, preventing him from taking his son to church or even to the leisure centre it runs.

    “After my divorce, the Christian community embraced me,” the father said. “They run many activities my son enjoys so I go to the church and would like to take my son.

    “I was taught that Christians were heartless and immoral, that only Muslims have a peaceful faith and all others are evil. It was only when I began mixing with Christians that I learned this was nonsense.”

    But his ex-wife has insisted that their son could “become confused” if exposed to religions other than Islam – a notion the boy’s father rejects.

    He told the Mail on Sunday: “This judge is simply scared of being branded Islamophobic. I want my son to have a balanced life in which he is exposed to different faiths and can make up his own mind about which, if any, religion he follows.

    “My son is being indoctrinated and the only way I can show him other things is to take him to other places.”

    And the order goes further: banning the boy’s father, who has custody of his son at weekends only, from taking him to any religious event or Christian building. He must also only feed the boy Halal food, and, bizarrely must reassure the child he is “an ordinary Muslim boy following Muslim rules.” The father has lodged an appeal with the High Court to have the order overturned.

    “If I don’t show him other types of life he will become just like a dumb sheep,” he said. “I want him to see and learn about different cultures.”

    And he said the ruling is affecting his relationship with his son: “This is nothing short of brain-washing him. Already he is telling me that I have a black heart; that I am a bad man, because I am not a practising Muslim. I am heartbroken that I have to keep him away from activities with local children.

    “He is being fed the same lies I was as a child and I want better for him. This judge was so busy being politically correct that she has ignored the influence of myself as a loving father. I am terrified that he will stop wanting to see me because of his indoctrination.”

    Christian groups have condemned the order, which they say is yet another example of institutional deference to Islam, and bias against Christianity.
