Actually Paddy, we don’t

Patrick Gower opines:

QuoteOPINION: We need a gay All Black.
Well, actually we need an openly gay All Black.

Because you can?t tell me that of the 1170 men who have worn the black jersey since 1884, that not one of them was gay.End of quote.

I can. Maybe none of those 1170 men were gay because maybe gay men don’t like playing rugby? Quote:

SJB: Public Restrooms are Sexist!

[..] For as long as I can remember, I’ve been lining up to use the loo. At weddings, festivals, gigs, sports; any large public event with gender-specific toilets, and the women’s line will snake around the block. “What do you ladies DO in there,” you’ll sometimes hear Dwayne from accounts chuckle. “You take FOREVER.”

Contrary to commonly held belief, we are not gushing over the guy at the bar or swapping lipstick tips (though this sometimes happens, too.) What we’re mostly doing is what we came to do; pee.

Ok, women use the bathroom more than men. Got it.

Social Justice Bullies

Writes Neil

May I suggest that the term Social Justice Warriors gets replaced with Social Justice Bullies; because that is what they are.

A warrior implies something noble whereas what they are really doing is trying to bully people/organisations into submission in the absence of reason, only with innuendo and some misguided perception of moral authority – not unlike the MSM – do as I say, not do as I do.

Lefty academic arrested and charged with assault

Remember Melissa Click?

She’s the Communications professor who attacked a journalist and called for muscle.

When you seek to cast aside other people’s rights, in the name of your own personal agenda, you never know when you might want those rights intact for yourself. On Monday, Melissa Click learned that lesson, as prosecutors charged her with assault.

Click is the communication professor who grabbed a videographer’s camera and said in a confrontation with a reporter covering a public protest at the University of Missouri: “Hey, who wants to help me get this reporter out of here. I need some muscle over here.”

But, using authority and/or intimidation against First Amendment rights is like summoning Beetlejuice — he just might show up, but he won’t be easy to control.

When her conduct went public, Click doubled down in an “apology,” but one in which she ultimately blamed the victim.

“I regret the language and strategies I used, and sincerely apologize to the MU campus community, and journalists at large, for my behavior, and also for the way my actions have shifted attention away from the students’ campaign for justice. My actions were shaped by exasperation with a few spirited reporters.”

She did not sincerely apologize for wishing to use censorship, violence, or excessive authority to shut down someone’s First Amendment rights. She blamed others. If only they had not exercised their rights, her statement, suggested, she would not have been provoked into a “distraction.”

Click kept her teaching job, despite reasonable calls for her to be fired. And now, someone has decided that something had to be done about her.
