Cosmo Contradictions


When I was a youngster, I saw issues of the magazine Cosmo at the supermarket check line.  They had images of on the cover of hot women with article titles blasting in your face about attracting and keeping men.  I understood that Cosmo was the flagship for Feminism, with the independent women, the one that could do it all on her own, the one that didn’t need men, the one that decried the view of women as sex objects.

I had trouble reconciling all of this in my mind, but apparently lots of people (especially women) didn’t.  I suppose that some people wrote it all off as women can feel what they want, making sense is optional.  But is there more?  Perhaps not.  Should we take Cosmo seriously?  Probably not.   Have/do women take Cosmo seriously?  Many do.   What can we conclude from this?

Exit question:  Have you ever thoroughly checked out a Cosmo cover?

    I’m not sure that is an accurate view of Cosmo. For a while anyway, most of the articles were of the sort that aimed to teach the reader how to become the sex object that men would choose – over the other wannabes. I think Cosmo got bashed by the feminists quite a bit over that approach.

    Add to that – the MInneapolis City Council has voted to disband the police department. The mayor is (rightly) opposed to that. But apparently the City Council has enough votes to override any Mayoral veto.

    Throughout, I have seen multiple articles giving advice on what they think can be done to, as one woman commentor phrased it, stop the police from hunting blacks (statistics be damned).

    I have not seen one comment or article (other than maybe Tucker Carlson) address the most fool-proof method to stop the police from “hunting blacks”: tell the blacks to start behaving themselves and stop committing crimes. Little old ladies tending to their gardens are not very often, if ever, harrassed by the police. There is a lesson there. But it seems that lesson is not worthy of discussing in the public marketplace of ideas.

    I’m copying this from another place where I posted regarding defunding police. Its part of a couple of comments.

    When you hear defund the police, you seem to think there will be no method of armed enforcement. That isn’t how it will be at all. You will have community outreach centers, which will offer bread and circuses for the black mobs and tactical response teams that look like special operations units to deal with whites defending themselves. Anarcho-tyranny institutionalized and paid for by your taxes.

    You resist any indecency, insult, or imposition and you get peaceful rioters peacefully throwing molotov cocktails at your business and peacefully looting your inventory while heavily armed community outreach officers prevent you from violently defending yourself from the pavement apes peacefully beating you with the lumber and masonry the community outreach team members provided for that peaceful purpose.

    Think of antifa telling the blacks to find the gas lines during the Sack of Precinct 3, or the convenient pallets of bricks and the lumber that just happened to be around. Thats what no police looks like in the cities.

    Now, if you want to abolish the rural police departments, that I can back. Makes hiding dead vibrants much easier. Rural cops become vigilantes or sherrif’s deputies in a return to community policing.

    Defunding/eliminating the police…. power abhors a vacuum. Our current police are made up of (mostly) men sworn to uphold the law. They are human, and so imperfect, and apt to screw up just like the rest of us. Nevertheless, they represent the law. Their replacement will be the mob, unhinged, unlawful, unconstrained. Our current police, even when corrupt, at least try to maintain civil order. Our civil order is the reason we have basically eliminated real hunger in this country, why we don’t have half of our children die before age 10 as they once did, why we don’t have outbreaks of the many plagues that still lurk around us that, that compared to Covid 19 are like great whites compared to guppies. Defunding the police is a vote for anarchy, murder, disease and famine. The knuckleheads voting for this always believe they’ll be the ones who end up ruling; most often they’re the first ones dead in the ditch.

    Having police answerable to “civilian” oversight is, in my opinion, a necessity. You cannot expect the general populace to have any sort of faith or trust in your organization if you cannot be held accountable for your actions. However, being held accountable to politicians is ridiculous. As Ton pointed out, that just makes police the spear point of the corrupt officials.

    FWIW NZ has beaten the Wu virus. There have been no new cases for 17 consecutive days. All people who had the virus have died or recovered. There were 22 deaths, mostly of elderly people who probably would have died anyway of other health problems. Many elderly die of the flu and pneumonia every year, and the number this year was down because they caught the Wu Flu instead or as well as.

    Apart from the borders, which remain closed, all activity is back to normal. International tourism is one of NZ’s biggest earners. On the other hand there has been an upsurge of orders for NZ products, especially foods.

  28. My mom bought Cosmo every month (likely still does) so they were always laying around when I was a kid. She also loved tabloids (enquirer, Star, etc.) Cosmo was filled with rah rah go girl stuff. I would read it because it was around and I read anything that is around, but even as a kid my gut would say there was something wrong about it and that the advice was popular but not good. It was mostly hair, makeup, fashion, career, and the monthly sex article (drive him wild with X.) Basically the “sex in the City” lifestyle. I have never bought or read one since moving out on my own. Still, looking back, I would not want my girls reading that or being influenced by that. And I wonder how much of the feminist nonsense I was raised with came from that or my mom being influenced by that? I would not recommend it, total waste of time and fills ones head with nonsense! Even with all the work I’ve had to do to unlearn some of this nonsense I will find it popping up here and there like an old bad record. Avoid this dreck entirely would be my advice!

  31. I would be much more likely to support the cops if they were doing the job they were supposedly created to do. Old western movies taught me that the sheriff went after bank-robbers, rustlers, and stage coach stick-up men. They didn’t go around making sure the saloon had the “correct” number of spittoons, or that the general store’s hitching post was exactly the right length for the store frontage.

    Cops seem to harass the law-abiding much more than going after real criminals. See: Anarcho-tyranny, also low-hanging fruit. Mark Steyn has a bit in his podcasts where he goes over the latest useless cop antics in the UK, “Where everything is policed, except actual crime.” They track down people displaying wrong-think on twitter, yet let Pakistanis rape their girl children with impunity for fear of being seen as racist. Yeah, lets defund that shit right now.

    Although I very much understand this perspective, there is a huge energy burden to having to serve as one’s own police force. There’s a deterrent component…just by the fact the police force exists, that I don’t think can be overlooked. Someone breaks into your car/home/business, are you going to launch your own investigation? Maybe, but good luck with that. Even in the mountains here, hypothetically if the police didn’t exist I’d feel the need to buy large dogs, and have a very upgraded security system. At present we don’t even have to lock our doors.
    Then there are the businesses…what would they do?

    I understand your point, but think you picked an especially bad example. It’s my understanding that stolen property cases are just paperwork affairs as far as the cops are concerned. “Here’s your police report for the insurance company Case closed.”

    Cops are only deterrents to people who wouldn’t generally think about breaking the law anyway. Cops may deter some crimes of opportunity, but they do almost nothing to protect us from career criminals.

    Have a poster on each street, listing the date and the picture of all the robbers/looters that have been shot by the businesses on that street. “We have shot/killed the last 12 guys who broke into our stores. Are you next?”
    Seems to me like that would be a better deterrent than having the cops after the guy. But I am not a criminal, so my opinions may not be appropriate for judging what would work well.

    The biggest problem with the suggestion above would be the labour involved. Who wants to pay someone to be there all night, every night?
    Maybe dogs and alarm systems, with an on-call team of men with guys who are only 5 minutes away. But that assumes you can find residences near the businesses. In some communities, the store is on the first floor and the owner’s apartment on the floor above it — that would be more workable.

I’m also wondering if anyone here knows anything more about this new thinking that the illness starts off respiratory but then becomes vascular and the clotting is a issue. I’m also wondering if anyone knows anything more on the thinking of the long term for this for people who have been affected? Her mom is same age as myself, active and fit. Scary!

  63. My experience, if it was the virus, has been almost like an autoimmune thing that remits and flares. So long as I am taking all the supplements and doing the homopathic stuff I am fine but if I slack off, symptoms like lung tightness and fatigue return. Of course I do wonder how much of a Roos stress, insomnia, and other factors are playing, too. It’s unprecedented, and while I am doing my best to cope, I can’t seem to turn it off like it’s not happening like some seem able to. Certainly not “enjoying the time off.” Blah blah blah… f this noise, want my old life back, hope someone is working on that! I don’t know how the pres. keeps up the pace he does. I hope he’s an honest player, the fact that they are so bent on destroying him gives me some hope that’s true, but it is really hard to know anymore… I am very glad I live in the country. I doubt any of this will come out my way and if so I like in probably the most red blooded armed up area so while I may not personally be much help beyond tea and sandwiches, I am surrounded by good people. That’s a comfort.

    Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet)
    Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks

    These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs

    I found out this morning that once, 50 years ago, we had a single night without police in a major Canadian city. Apparently, it was not a pleasant evening:

    on October 7, 1969, when the Montreal police went on strike. By 11:20 am, the first bank was robbed. By noon, most of the downtown stores were closed because of looting. Within a few more hours, taxi drivers burned down the garage of a limousine service that competed with them for airport customers, a rooftop sniper killed a provincial police officer, rioters broke into several hotels and restaurants, and a doctor slew a burglar in his suburban home. By the end of the day, six banks had been robbed, a hundred shops had been looted, twelve fires had been set, forty carloads of storefront glass had been broken, and three million dollars in property damage had been inflicted, before city authorities had to call in the army and, of course, the Mounties to restore order.

    Ton,
    Your argument that if we defund the police they will spend less time on minor issues and more time on serious felonies doesn’t hold water. It’s basic economics. City leaders are going to want a certain amount of income from the police regardless of circumstances (traffic fines). No matter how many resources they allocate away from police city leaders are still going to demand that income; as a result police will spend LESS time on serious crime and even MORE time on petty things that produce income. This goes against the grain for 90%+ of rank and file officers, but if it’s write tickets are go on unemployment, they’ll do what most of the rest of us will.
    The problem is NOT rank and file officers. The problem is hard leftists in local government and the constituents that elect them who think you can bring down murder, burglary, theft, rape etc. without hurting anyone’s (especially Somalians) feelings.

    They are the ones who follow orders to jail some poor sob who can’t pay alimony etc after loosing his job

    They are the ones who stopped BV from receiving medical care… a way common event btw

    Rank and file pigs gave a friend of mine a ticket for not wearing a helmet while he was dying…after having it knocked off him

    It was rank and file pigs pulling over White veteran bikers because Obama and Holder said we were the real domestic threat in America

    It was rank and file pigs who crashed a buddies funeral and hassled his mourning friends and family

    It’s rank and file pigs who get into unnecessary high speed chases with non violent offenders, then fuck up their driving and kill your neighbour’s teenage daughter coming home from work

    It was rank and file pigs who refused to display moral courage and obeyed orders to let the chimp out continue and they lack it to such a degree they don’t do much to protest it

    Etc etc, world without end, amen
    ……….

    I am also utterly unconcerned with what happens to people in cities but if the actual gunned up cops are few in number, like Sumo and FB eluded to, they’ll be way to busy to hassle regular folks. How many speeding tickets where issued in Minneapolis last weekend? My guess is a record low

    By way of comparison we went almost 2 years with no official police for our little hamlet. No one locked their doors or took the keys out of their trucks

    It plays out that way all over the world and they’ll probably attempt to use cameras for traffic enforcement

    You will see a increase in police corruption of the you can now bribe your way out of speeding tickets but I don’t see that as a problem. Rich folks bribe cops all the time. Might as well let the little guy get in on the action

    National guard guys generally cant afford to be on active duty very long so that is also a quickly depleted resource. Especially if they have to stay close to home.

    Left hss to eat itself ro loose…..when shit goes sideways you will also see a rapid rise in race realism and right wing movements.

His experiences raising the black girl were miles apart from his experiences raising his white daughters. His “lived experience” changed because of the color of his adopted daughter’s skin. An example of how the “lived experience” of whites in America are fundamentally different from the “lived experiences” of people of color.

    Vitamin C is also said to be useful. Large doses if you’re ill. Overdoing C might give you unpleasant (but harmless) side-effects. If you get tummy trouble (or lower down) then reduce your dose a bit. The only other thing to be aware of is that it makes your skin more sensitive to the sun, so use a bit of protection (the effect is noticeable but not extreme).

    In 1982, a lone admiral urged Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher to deploy a military task force to counter Argentina’s invasion of the Falkland Islands. The archipelago, 8,000 miles from the United Kingdom, was the source of dispute over sovereignty between the two nations for more than a century. With no forward presence other than a tiny garrison on the islands, no allies in the area or intermediate support bases en route, and not even ships to mount the British military, Thatcher nevertheless decided to order deployment to retake the Falklands. The Prime Minister’s bold move sparked an expeditionary war, surprising many of the world’s other great powers. The British deployed forces nearly half the world away to achieve a complete victory only 74 days after the Argentine invasion. In this lecture, MG (Ret) Kenneth L. Privratsky, author of the recently published book, Logistics in the Falklands War, provides an overview of the war to include key actions leading to the victory, the aftermath, and most importantly, its relevance to the U.S. Army as it continues to focus on expeditionary warfare.

    Study after study has shown that kids play no meaningful role in community spread of the virus. And contrary to what the doomsayers warned, asymptomatic individuals of any age are very unlikely to transmit the disease. Consider that one serology study done by Tribeca Pediatrics found that 20 percent of children tested in New York City have antibodies. Thus, the reason we are not seeing child-to-adult transmission is not because children do not get the disease, but likely because almost none of them present meaningful enough symptoms to transmit.

    Re the better bachelor/video:

    If women don’t want to fuck their husbands, then women need to stop bitching about their husbands jerking it to porn.

    If women don’t want to fuck their husbands, then women need to be OK with having sex outside their marriages.

    You know this, but I’m gonna say this for the benefit of other young men who are reading.

    Up until about, oh, 100 years ago, it was the case that young unmarried men usually had sex with whores and prostitutes,, until they got married. Then they had sex with their wives, and occasionally with whores. Then after the last kid was born and the wives decided they didn’t want sex anymore, they went back out and had sex with whores once again. Only, when these men are 40 or so, it’s less often because they had to think about work and supporting their families, and also they’re not usually in the best health so things don’t work as well. So, you know, once or twice a month, when he really needed to scratch the itch, the local whore could do (turn) the trick.

    So around 100 years or so ago, it was decided at least in the US that in all but maybe Nevada, prostitution needed to be illegal. And women decided that they liked this, because it kept their husbands at home, kept them off the streets, kept STIs away (usually), and the husbands weren’t spending needed money on hookers. OK.

    But women weren’t picking up the slack. Women were saying “well, you husbands can’t fuck anyone else, but we are not going to fuck you.”

    Yeah, no. That’s not gonna fly.

    Ladies, the choice is very simple. Either have sex with your husbands, do it correctly and do it often, or expect them to go get it somewhere else. You no longer get to have it both ways. You do not get to say “you don’t get to have sex with anyone but me” and then refuse to have sex with him when he wants. No. That’s not acceptable in any way, shape, manner or form.

    And if he does step out because you won’t have sex with him, you have now forfeited any right to complain about it. You DO NOT get to complain that your hubby is fucking someone else when you won’t fuck him.

    More on the Vitamin D thang. This is the guy (MD) that said 4000iu per day was the limit for long term taking D3

    So what does not having enough vitamin D have to do with COVID? And IF insufficient vitamin D levels CAUSE more severe disease, why is that? Well, I have to first clarify that it’s not proven that insufficient levels of vitamin D lead to worse outcomes. But while it hasn’t been proven, it also certainly hasn’t been disproven. And there is more and more compelling evidence suggesting that lower levels lead to worse outcomes. And there’s no question that vitamin D plays an important role in our immune system. More and more studies are coming out that are sorting out its exact role in this capacity. But the link between poor vitamin D status and risk of certain infections remains cloudy. Back in 2017, there was a meta-analysis study that consisted of 25 different randomized trials with about 11,000 patients in total, evaluating the incidence of acute respiratory infection.

    Vitamin D supplementation reduced the percentage of patients experiencing an acute respiratory tract infection. The incidence of URTI in the vitamin D group was 40.3%, compared to 42.2% in the placebo group. In a subgroup analysis, vitamin D supplementation was most effective in patients with vitamin D levels less than 10 ng/mL and in those treated with daily or weekly smaller doses, as opposed to a huge single dose. The takeaway from this meta-analysis study is that, being vitamin d deficient probably makes people more prone to getting upper respiratory infections, and that they should take supplemental vitamin D. But people who have low levels should be taking supplemental vitamin D regardless. Vitamin D has major effects on nearly all cells of our immune system, including dendritic cells, macrophages, and T and B lymphocytes. All of these immune cells have a receptor that binds to vitamin D, called vitamin D receptor, or VDR.

    Here are some questions we still need answers to:
    1) what level of vitamin D is adequate to protect against, or minimize the impact, of COVID?
    2) What level of vitamin D is considered too high
    3) should more and more people get their vitamin D levels checked, especially during this pandemic, when less and less people are physically going to the doctor?
    4) should people just supplement themselves? If so, how much?

    These are all tough questions to answer, especially because we won’t have the results of RCT for vitamin D anytime soon. Given the fact that low dose vitamin D is pretty darn safe, it seems quite reasonable for people to take a low dose supplement, especially if they think they might not be getting enough from sunlight or their diet. Of course, ideally, you want to have a discussion with your doctor if possible.

    A common question is, How much Vitamin D should I take a day?
    Personally, I take 1,000 IU per day. I know that I’m not going to run anywhere near toxic levels of vitamin D with that dose, while at the same time, I know that I won’t be vitamin D deficient.

    As an aside, I’ve never thought the term structural racism, or any “*** racism” was useful. What that term actually describes is structural preference. We all have preferences, regardless of ethnic group. We all prefer to be around stuff we understand – which usually means we prefer to be around the folks who raised us. No amount of redistributing resources from A to B is going to change that fundamental attribute of human nature. And diverting police money to the local 4th grade programs in the community is going to do no good for the disadvantaged if their mother did not get the proper nutrition when she was pregnant at the time that the fetus needed it. There are plenty of medical studies that doument that this is true.

    The main consequence of vitamin D toxicity is a buildup of calcium in your blood (hypercalcemia), which can cause nausea and vomiting, weakness, and frequent urination. Vitamin D toxicity might progress to bone pain and kidney problems, such as the formation of calcium stones. (Mayo Clinic)

    Vitamin B-12 and other B vitamins play a role in producing brain chemicals that affect mood and other brain functions. Low levels of B-12 and other B vitamins such as vitamin B-6 and folate may be linked to depression.

    That Dear Deidre letter is hilarious. 😆

    OT: A bird built a nest on our electrical meter gauge box (whateveritscalled).
    The first portion of nest blew away on the first attempt. I was relieved because it is very exposed to the elements.
    But, lo…the nest that was broken was rebuilt. This bird obviously learned nothing at all.
    So I asked the boys to put a little mesh net around it for stability. For two days we had some really strong gale force winds the nest withstood only due to our little engineers…
    Now the bird sits upon the nest.
    I have some questions…
    -the nest is too small, and seems really awkward for the bird sitting in it.
    Mike likened it to him squatting on a toddler’s potty.
    It’s also in an awkward location. Looks uncomfortable for the bird.
    Is this a thing?

    These lived experiences have nothing to do with white people. You get the same results when white people live in Hispanic, Caribbean, African, or Asian countries, and when a Mexican lives in Africa, etc, etc. This is just human nature; when you parachute a person from a different tribe and cultural background into a different area these things happen. Many people of all races are rude and insensitive. This is not unique to whites.

    I have lived in two foreign countries; non-white, non-Western. I experienced stares, rudeness, and felt like an outsider. But, I knew I was an outsider and I tried to behave as a guest.

    Remember the adage “the world is not fair, make it unfair in your favour.”

    With the ability to see thru the bs, to decide and act independently you have all the tools for a happy life if you chose. (Choice being the key)

    Feminism removed us from the burden of performance, I don’t Have to marry or support a family unless I Choose to.

    These times remove us from many old burdens.

    White lives don’t matter, so I am removed from the burden of having to support other groups unless I chose to.

    Business has been abandoned or looted so I am removed from the burden of running it in any way other than as I chose.

    My home is no longer supported or protected by the community so I am removed from the burden of abiding by community standards.

    My consumption, wealth is privalege so I am relieved of the burden of alms or community investment except where I chose.

    My skills are not valued for merit so I am removed from the burden of performing for my employer except where I chose.

    Your self, skills, resources are yours alone. You will be treated by others by whim or political whims in no relation to your actions. So act in your interests.

    My town is degrading. So move. My boss is an asshole. So quit. My partner makes my life difficult. So decouple.

    But I can’t because……these times have stripped the old excuses.

    Yes taking action is hard, scary.
    Doing nothing does not have no effect like a car stopped on the roadside.
    Doing nothing exposes you to the whims of the world around you like a boat stopping its motor to drift on the current.

    Find joy in your life. Decide and act to make you happy.

    White flight or gentrification….I live where I chose, don’t like my house get offa my lawn.
    Skills gap….I have mine, either trade honestly or go away
    Wealth inequality….I earned it and will spend it as I please, not on you

    1. The question was asked whether anyone had a definition for “systemic racism”. The two links I provided gave information on how one group of folks define it. French’s article acknowledged that different groups define “systemic racism” differently. Your response is proof that French’s point on this matter is correct. Which is why I linked to French’s article in the first place. You presume in your response to me that your statement “French’s daughter is not an example of ‘systemic racism’ is the universal position on the matter. It is not. That is neither good nor bad. It just is.

    2. You compare your lived experiences as a visitor in a different country to the lived experiences of citizens in their own country. And think that your example addresses the point(s) raised. It does not. I don’t know if you meant this, but your example says that it should be acceptable for citizens in their own country to be treated as though they are a visitor to that country. If you did not mean to say that, then your experiences in foreign countries as a visitor has no place in this conversation. The discussion is about the definition of “systemic racism” among peoples of a single country. It is not a discussion of systemic anything among peoples of different countries when they are travelling outside of their homeland.

    3. Within this country, Californians who move to Idaho may be treated as intruders by the locals. Within this country, blacks (or other ethnic groups) who move into all-white neighborhoods may be treated as intruders by the locals. Ever this has been, and ever it shall be. Which is why I stated upthread that I think systemic preferences is a better phrase than systemic racism. Everybody prefers what they are comfortable with. And what folks generally are most comfortable with is being around the folks who raised them, or folks who are like the folks who raised them. For the most part, Californians are raised differently than Idahoans. Hence the prejudice against Californians who move to Idaho. For the most part, blacks are raised differently from whites. Hence the prejudice against blacks who move to white neighborhoods. But this systemic preference for what we are comfortable with also exists within ethnic groups. There was (still is?) strong prejudice within the white group against Italians and Irishmen (who are also white) in an earlier part of the American history. There was (still is?) strong prejudice between Protestants and Catholics (who are also white) in an earlier part of the American history.

    Systemic Preferences – its what’s for lunch. The whold world over.

So the state got to pickup the bill for her ambulance ride and medicare got to pay for het complete cardiac workup, every freaking time. Finally a new doc complained about seeing her for the fourth time in 2 months and called a social worker down to consult. The SW set her up to come in 3 times a week volunteer. Didn’t see again for the rest of the time I worked there.

    No the prejudice against blacks is becuase they are extremely dysfunctional, criminal and violent

    I don’t much care for cathloics because they are hugely hypocritical and progressive but they aren’t violent and criminal…. unless you count child rape, covering up child rspe and Mexicans and what not

    2. You compare your lived experiences as a visitor in a different country to the lived experiences of citizens in their own country. And think that your example addresses the point(s) raised. It does not. I don’t know if you meant this, but your example says that it should be acceptable for citizens in their own country to be treated as though they are a visitor to that country.

    I do not think this is an accurate assessment of what he said.
    He mentioned living in country, not passing through as a tourist (though that too can tell one a lot in some places).
    I also do not think citizenship is the big factor. One of our sons is an Italian citizen, and cannot remember Italy at all.
    We lived next to an Ethiopian family in Washington DC. They’d lived there for years.
    Would you say their perspective is irrelevant as they are just “visitors” compared to the experiences of this adopted child living in an upper class neighborhood?

    So meanwhile I struggle to have enthusiasm for anything because everything seems so f’ing nihilistic… suggestions? Anyone?

    stop reading. stop listening. choose what you allow into your mind. don’t allow all this stuff into your mind that you know will suck the life out of you. you do not need to keep up with all current events. pick one something to skim occasionally, and let it go.

    you pass on to your daughters your emotions. choose to get rid of the bad ones, including anything causing the bad ones. choose to hold onto the good ones – including anything leading to the good ones.

    Philippians 4:8-9 English Standard Version (ESV)
    8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. 9 What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

    I have lived in two foreign countries; non-white, non-Western. I experienced stares, rudeness, and felt like an outsider. But, I knew I was an outsider and I tried to behave as a guest.

    Anyone that things this is unique to the USA, or that this is an example of systemic racism, or that politicians and laws can fix this is naive.

    from what i hear, most foreign countries hate americans and have no trouble expressing such emotion.

    Richard P.,

    1. The fact that David French thinks his daughter experience proves a significant point that he promotes on TV shows that he is naive. The fact that you are promoting his point on this matter shows that you are naive.

    2. Don’t twist my words, I lived in these countries, I was not a visitor.

    I was not born in those countries, but French’s daughter was also not born in this country.

    @bee and Liz – we have gotten off the track. Bee, I think you have an agenda. Liz, I’m not sure. You’ve both avoided the simple point of why I posted those links: they give one description of the phrase FB asked about, and French’s experience raising a black daughter was significantly different than his experience raising white daughters. French gave that difference in experience as one example of the definition French was discussing.

    Bee, for you to say that French is promoting something and that makes him naive is why I think you have an agenda. Double so for your thought that I am promoting something that French is promoting. French had one experience with white daughters, a different experience with black daughter. Speaking about that difference, stating that it happened – what does naive have to do with that process (either for French or me, and rhetorical)? And what is he promoting, other than an example of an academic definition of a phrase (except that he was offering that definition as one among several, not promoting it). That is a problem why? And what am I promoting??? (rhetorical) I gave FB a definition of the phrase he asked for. I think French’s example of two different experiences in raiseing daughters, based on skin color, was useful. The end.

    Keep in mind that I don’t know the man or his politics or his presence on television. Bee (and to a lesser extent, Liz) – you have taken this conversation way beyond the simple point I made. At least for bee, it appears that you have some experience with the man and his politics – and so your comments are pulling into this discussion your attitudes toward those other experiences. I only know the definition given and his example from his own life to back up that definition. My thoughts do not, cannot (because I don’t know the man), go beyond that.

    With regard to bee 123456 and Liz’ comments to me, and my response to them, this might make my position more clear: (I have not yet read any comments after my last post above.)

    1. I thought this was obvious, but maybe not:

    a. French had a certain experience when raising two white daughters.

    b. French had a different experience when raising a black adopted daughter.

    c. If French had adopted a white girl instead of a black girl, would his experience raising her be closer to 1(a) or 1(b)?

    d. Point 1(c) is in view in my comments up-thread. To make the comparison to be about lived experiences in this country vs. lived experiences in a different country, as both bee and Liz did, is to change the subject entirely.

    2. I assumed the following in my response to bee 123456:

    a. bee was neither born and raised in, nor a citizen of, the countries he referenced.

    b. bee was not a tourist to the countries he referenced.

    c. therefore, the term “visitor” seemed most appropriate to describe his status in those countries for the time he was there. If a different word is more appropriate, I have no problem using that different word. What I have a problem with is bee and Liz changing the subject away from Point 1(c) above, when that is what French was using as an example of one definition of systemic racism.

    d. Whatever French’s politics are and however he presents himself on television is irrelevant to the question posed at Point 1(c) above. As is the fact that Liz’s son was born in Italy. What bee said about French and Liz said about her son are worth discussing in a different context. But not within the context of Point 1(c) above.
