The head of Thailand, King Maha Vajiralongkorn, elevated his lover to Chief Concubine status, only to strip her of that title a couple of days later. Headline news tells us he feels she hasn’t acted appropriately. Bringing a younger lover into the marriage wasn’t disrespectful to the queen, but rather the behavior of the shiny new toy.
Ya gotta love a controlling leader who sluts it up and then blames a woman for being naughty.
From his first marriage to his first cousin, to his latest tryst with a lady young enough to be his granddaughter (the very recent formerly-known-as Royal Consort Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi), this king dude has been written to be a gambler and partying womanizer.
A recent petition circulated on change.org has been signed by many to remove sexist words from the dictionary. Started by Maria Beatrice Giovanardi and the Fawcett Society, the petition states, “This sexist dictionary must change.”
The intention is good, but the misunderstanding of how dictionaries work speaks poorly to feminist intellect.
Words and phrases are coined and then used frequently enough before they are given an entry. Removing definitions is a case of the tail wagging the dog, as if chauvinists turn to a book of spelling to discover new and exciting sexist terms.
I hadn’t heard of Sherif Gaber until his recent tweet caused enough media to hit my world. This young man is an activist who lives in Egypt. That alone is dangerous. He also speaks out for women’s rights and is a self-proclaimed atheist.
After checking out some videos made by Gaber, I found his arguments to perfectly sane. He shows footage of religious cray-crays explaining how and why you must beat women into submission, to include when they don’t put out. Sherif also discusses other absurdities such as an unspoken license to attack burka-clad woman in public, without recourse, for the crime of walking like a prostitute.
I hesitate to cite my source for the inspiration of this blog.
This ad . . . er um . . . article, by Judah and Chelsea Smith, is about getting folks back into religion, including brick and mortar churches. Unfortunately for those on the take, millennials and others prefer to experience the world on Sunday, rather than sit-in for some dude’s dialogue that distorts the disturbing bible into a random feel-good or doom-and-gloom speech.
Or: How to Demean a Female Teen
Yes, schools are losing more and more power to students, not something I entirely agree with. But slut-shaming via dress codes is another issue entirely.
Take a look at this picture and see if you think this “skirt” was just asking for it.
From Laura Orsi’s Instagram:
Yesterday, Clara Mitchell wore the same skirt I have on in this photo. She had worn it to school before, and was sporting it again for the Science Symposium. However, at 10am, she was dress coded for it being “too short” by Parkview administration who repeatedly made her turn around to “look at the back,” and easily caused her a panic attack, which they then accused her of faking.
Headline news tells us that radio station WDOK in Cleveland, Ohio is refusing to play the song, Baby It’s Cold Outside.
This duet involves a man trying to convince a lady friend to stay, either longer or for the evening, while the woman seems to be struggling with her conscience.
That’s my take, anyhow.
Naysayers are now claiming this classic to be akin to a rape song.
People are pointing to the phrases, “The answer is no” and “I really must go”. Yes, but she also seems to waffle with “I ought to say no,” and “Maybe just a half a drink more”.
Religious institutions, especially Catholicism, have not been kind to women. Nuns are very much on the decline because they weren’t taken care of as well as the men. Women also complain that the opportunity for rising up in the ranks is poor.
Having women in charge might fix a whole lotta messes.
Yet, it is beyond me why women would want to claw their way to the top of an organization that views them with less regard, is overly concerned with their vaginas, extols money, and molests children.
The blurby follows, but the basic gist is that Sheikh Saad Al-Hijri, a preacher type dude, said that women can’t drive because their brain is one quarter the size of a man’s brain.
This guy is fricking brilliant. I’d like to take him out for a picnic sometime, so I can pick his brain.
Dumb is dumb, and this applies to all persons. I’d actually like to tell this guy that the next time he is saying stupid shit, please leave the rest of us out of it.
I have no idea what went down, or how, or who really said what. I wasn’t there, and neither were most everyone else who has an opinion on the matter. All I know is that what is at stake here, literally and figuratively, is a life and death argument over spit.
Apparently a Pakistani Christian woman better known as Asia Bibi, was working the fields, outnumbered by Muslim women, when she drank from the well. Bibi’s “filthy” Christian lips touched their communal drinking cup. An argument escalated where religious insults where hurled from both sides and suddenly someone must die due to blasphemy. That’s quite a short trip from point A to point B.
The beautiful Bailey Davis, NFL cheerleader for the New Orleans Saints, whose team is known as the New Orleans Saintsations, claims she was fired after posting an Instagram pic of herself in lingerie.
Who cares about her photo? Well, the hypocrites do.
The NFL team’s employee handbook says: “Nude, semi-nude, or lingerie photography is strictly prohibited and terms for immediate dismissal.”
Um, excuse me, but aren’t all the cheerleaders on the field semi-nude? Does the NFL believe people are watching these scantily clad ladies bounce around for their athleticism? I think we all know what’s going on here.
