Serves Them Right

A young man from San Francisco launched a controversial civil lawsuit against his parents this morning, demanding $1,857,250 in financial compensation for being raised as a girl and forced to wear feminine clothes for more than 14 years.

The plaintive, 22-year old Chelsea Roberts, alleges that his parents, Brian and Angela Roberts, forced him to wear dresses or skirts every day for years, forced him to behave and identify himself as a girl, and even tried to impose a sex change surgery on him.

In his request, the young man claims his parents’ behavior and the sexual identity they imposed on him have caused severe psychological trauma that will leave lasting scars and necessitate years of therapy.

I hope justice will be served. Some people should not be allowed around children whether their own or someone else's...

Ascension Weekend

 It's the Feast of the Ascension today, and it's a long weekend as the kids are free from school for 4 days in a row, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Many parents are free, too, so that yesterday there was a traffic jam of 1000 km the direction of Germany despite rising benzine prices (yet again). They are talking about making the tax even lower but as of now they haven't done it, unfortunately, but it won't keep us home since the last Covid restrictions were abolished some time ago and we are free to visit Germany. 

So we are leaving today, first to a Viking festival, then to our camping and then further East...See you all on Sunday, have a blessed Ascension Weekend!

Texas Elementary School Shooting

 I was going to post a recipe today, but then read this:

18 Students, 1 Adult Dead 

They are now talking about 19 students and 2 adults killed. I'm awfully sorry...

An Anti-Woke Movies Review Site

Someone linked to a new movies and TV shows review site called Right Wing Tomatoes - Filter the woke. 

I haven't figured out exactly how it works yet, but in case anyone is interested, here is the link.

Is The Smallpox Back?

 It has a cute new name, "monkeypox" and the alphabet people are hardest hit:

Monkeypox Hits Europe

I especially like how the article describes the virus as "mild", with only "1 out 10 people" dying, but actually the new strain is even milder, with less than 1 out of 100% dying, much like the original Wuhan Covid strain, but not really dangerous for anyone who doesn't have a prolonged physical contact with an infected person. I do seriously hope there will be no new lockdowns...

So, The Force Was Real After All???

Scientists are debating a bizarre philosophical theory that everything in the universe has consciousness.

 There are two prevalent theories for consciousness – monism and dualism. In monism, generally preferred by scientists, consciousness is believed to be entirely a construct of the physical brain. 

 While religious people and traditionalists tend towards dualism, the belief consciousness is entirely separate from matter or the human body.

Panpsychism is a third theory which describes consciousness as inherent in all matter; both living and inanimate. 

Rather than being borne by the human brain or completely separate from it, consciousness exists in all things, even a chair or rock, and some believe that there is one basic consciousness that exists throughout the universe.

As a "religious person" I don't see any contradiction, when God created the universe why couldn't He have given it some "basic consciousness" as well?

Carbs Aren't Bad For You

 Or rather, not all carbs are bad for you:

Potato Diet Challenge

 “Make your food boring and your life interesting.” That’s one lesson Andrew Flinders Taylor points out in a Youtube video he posted in December 2016, where he detailed all of the things he learned after eating potatoes for every meal, every single day, for almost a year.

An all-potato diet sounds crazy, but for Taylor, who weighed in at 334 pounds when his experiment began, it led to noticeable results. The Australian native dropped 117 pounds after one year of what he calls his “Spud Fit Challenge.”

Americans And Abortion

 Contrary to what Pro-Lifers will tell you, the majority of the Americans of all races supports legal abortion, except White Evangelicals (yes, even Catholics who like to present themselves as sooo traditional and so much better than the Protestants). Also, the Boomers who everybody loves to hate nowadays, are much more conservative in their views on the issue:

 Sizable gaps by age, partisanship in views of whether abortion should be legal

That includes 60% of the moderate Republicans, 72% of "conservative" Democrats and nearly 60% of the men.  These views have hardly changed in 30 years:

A chart showing Americans’ views of abortion, 1995-2022

In other words, liberalism still enjoys a broad support in the USA, and I presume in other Western countries, too. You can blame the elites, the bankers, immigration, "special people", the mass media and whatever you wish. I blame the lack of faith:

Religion a significant factor in attitudes about whether abortion should be legal

As you can see, 97% of atheists support it...

What Happened To Dalrock?

 It's been more than 2 years since he quit blogging and got pretty much forgotten I guess, but recently I stumbled upon an internet rumour (which I won't link to), that he was "run off" the internet by a group of dedicated "Christian" (read "Catholic") "anti-racist" bloggers and Redditors for being a part of the "alt-right", and that the same people were behind VD's blog being shut down. 

Now, one could argue that VD's views on race are rather controversial by the modern standards, but I have yet to remember one post by Dal which had to do with this topic or criticise any race in particular. It was all women bad and chivalry and how you shouldn't marry as far as I can remember and that's what the discussions used to be about, too. 

I often disagreed with him, but should admit that I miss him since I often got ideas from his blog as to what to write about and now I have to think of something myself every time and it's a bother:)

If the story above is true, he must have really got under somebody's skin with his posts and yet, his blog wasn't taken down and you still can find it. Of course, with VD they didn't succeed, either, as he's back on his own network and could be followed on Gab, too. It could be that Dalrock got threats and harassment and that forced him to quit or it could be just the wishful thinking on the part of his enemies. 

Any thoughts?

Are European Laws Too Lenient?

 As a certain internet celebrity says, let's find out!

Some time ago we became victims of a cyber crime. So we went to police to report it. It took us close to 3 hours and cost my husband a free afternoon. The police were very helpful. They told us it was a serious crime with the punishment being 5 years in prison, which is quite strict by our standards. However, they said, it was not up to them to open an investigation, the decision had to be taken by the prosecutor's office. 

When I left them, I wasn't very hopeful. I had a neighbour once who moved over here from Southern Europe and her wallet was stolen, with all the documents and her debit card. The thieves emptied her bank account and later she had to go back to her country for the new documents, but the prosecutor had decided not to open an investigation, because, and here I quote the official letter she showed me, the crime was not important enough.

Well, what do you think? Our crime was apparently more important as about a week later we got a letter informing us that the investigation was started and that we would be notified of its progress. However. Several days later another letter came. The department higher up decided that the investigation should not proceed because reasons. Luckily, we got restitution from the insurance.

So here you have it. Our laws are reasonably strict. 5 years is quite a bit for fraud, but it could be death penalty for all I know and it wouldn't make any difference, if you refuse to investigate and prosecute the crimes. Pretty much the only thing which gets investigated is assault and murder (attempt). The laws are used very selectively, often depending on who the victim is. We call it class justice if you know what I mean:)

It's by design, too. There is some sort of gentlemen's agreement not to enforce the existing laws. I believe such a system is called anarcho-tyranny...

Still funny after all these years:)

It Takes A White Liberal To Believe In Equality

 Based immigrants saying it like it is:

Female physicists question ‘terrifying’ claims made by government commissioner Katharine Birbalsingh to MPs

Any common sense opposition to the Western equality dogma is obviously terrifying:)

Girls do not choose physics A-level because they dislike “hard maths”, the government’s social mobility commissioner has claimed, prompting anger from leading scientists...

 Are these scientists biologists? Otherwise, they aren't qualified to have an opinion on the matter, methinks. Well, here you have it, a bit further:

Dame Athene Donald, a professor of experimental physics and master of Churchill College, Cambridge, said the comments were “terrifying” and “quite damaging” 

Should probably stick to physics, lol! Also, am I the only one to notice that these strong and independent womyn often exhibit quite Victorian traits when somebody contradicts them? Terrifying and damaging, really? Quick, somebody bring the dame her smelling salts!

...Addressing a science and technology committee inquiry on diversity and inclusion in Stem subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths), Katharine Birbalsingh said fewer girls chose physics because “physics isn’t something that girls tend to fancy. They don’t want to do it, they don’t like it,” she said.

Birbalsingh, who is headteacher of Michaela Community school in Wembley, north-west London, said that only 16% of A-level physics students at her school were girls – lower than the national average of 23%. When asked why so few girls progressed to physics A-level, despite outperforming boys at GCSE, she said: “I just think they don’t like it. There’s a lot of hard maths in there that I think they would rather not do.”

“The research generally … just says that’s a natural thing,” she added. “I don’t think there’s anything external.”

Birbalsingh, a French and philosophy graduate, said she was “certainly not out there campaigning” for more girls to do physics. “I don’t mind that there’s only 16%,” she said. “I want them to do what they want to do.”

Letting girls do what they want to do would mean that many of them choose to get married and have children instead of pursuing tertiary education, something that the cult of barrenness and androgyny can't tolerate. 

Speaking of barrenness, I guess everybody already heard about possible Roe vs Wade overturn? Big if true. About the person who leaked the info. Why is it that Third World immigrants to Europe are often much more socially conservative than those who immigrate to the USA? There is something in the American society which makes them really insane, I guess...

J.K. Rowling In The News Again

They killed the Harry Potter lady:

 A transgender novelist has come under fire after penning a self-confessed “depraved psychos8xual horrorshow” in which J.K. Rowling is burned alive in her home...

The Massachusetts-based author brags about writing “the most disgusting books in the English language, books about s8xual revulsion, about body horror, about how violence forms and fits into our lives.”

 Tell me again how the USA is a fine Christian country unlike us sinners in Western Europe:) The truth is, we are all in it together...
