College removes scales from gym after students complain it’s ‘triggering’

For people with eating disorders, stepping on a scale can be very triggering. A college in Canada is taking extreme measures to make sure this doesn’t happen.

Ottawa’s Carleton University has decided to get rid of all the scales at their gym. Athletics have put up a sign where the scales used to be that explains that they were removed to encourage people to focus on other ways of measuring their health beyond just their weight.

Bruce Marshall, manager of health and wellness at Athletics, told the school’s paper, The Charlatan, that: “We don’t believe being fixated on weight has any positive effect on your health and well-being.”

Some people are not happy with the decision and #bringbackthescale has appeared on twitter with some people saying obesity is also a disorder and scales can actually help obese people keep track of losing or gaining weight.

Wasn’t Carleton University’s gym recently in the news for another reason?

Didn’t I write a post about it?

Shazaam, it was, and I did.

Roll the two together, and that school’s gym is becoming a chick gym.





The Public’s Right Not to Know

Edmonton

I only broached this story in this space on Sunday, and that that, it was in a snarky way. You know, Edmonton Man is the new Minnesota Man.

Nevertheless, sexual assault is really not a big deal, in fact, it’s borderline not even a crime, unless the suspect looks like a non-existent white man written about in Strolling Bone. No, the real crime is noticing patterns. And the real victims are the rapists, the girls they raped probably brought it on themselves by having the audacity to be white.

I know what I’m about to write will be misinterpreted fifty million ways to my next Sunday wrap-up.  If for no other reason alone, because Miss Khogali is so consumed by her own (part) blackness and the consequent contempt for white people (including her own white ancestry) that she royally flubs the science of the matter.

But she understands white people better than most white people do.

Much of what makes us us are genetically recessive traits.

If any people in the world need safe spaces, we do.  Safe spaces made us who we are.

Really I do.

The last time there were this many BSODs was when people were still using Windows 98.

And also, while everyone’s trying to make sense of Trump’s immigration-related executive orders, trying to figure out what fathomable reason he would have to issue them.  They can’t even…





Until You’re Not

Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario

Breitbart:

The Sault Ste. Marie and Area Local Immigration Partnership (LIP), a Canadian immigration and “anti-racist” organization, is asking residents of the city to sign a pledge to prove they aren’t racist.

Which is sorta like the National Association of Burglars asking people to develop an aversion to door locks.

All these good pathological altruists and virtue signalers will sign the petition, which means they will be officially registered anti-racists.  Until they won’t be, because social justice is a god whose appetite for blood sacrifices made to it is never satisfied.

Remember all those anti-drug pledges that schools made kids sign starting in the 1980s?  How did that work out?





Time is the Independent Variable

Truth is the dependent variable.

I first saw this story on a certain clickbait website that I vowed never to look at again, because its parenthetical founder was outed in Wikileaks has a HRC supporter, all the while creating an anti-PC/SJW clickhole in order to help Rupert Murdoch run bread.  Which means I wasn’t going to mention this story at all as long as the clickhole in question was my only source, and I also figured that once other sources took it up, we’d find out more and crucial details.

Now I have my other source, best of all, it’s the mainline newspaper in Ottawa which got the snowball rolling.

It’s this business about the call for a Canadian university to set aside an hour per day in the school gym for women only.  And, a few things the author of the editorial wrote that sets off WRPT alarm bells.  So, here ya be:

Editorial: Suck it up, Carleton – women-only gym time is a good idea

Imagine you’re going to the university gym for the first time, perhaps after making a New Year’s resolution to get yourself in shape. You don’t know much about how to use the equipment, and when you walk in, the entire football team is there lifting weights. It’s probably intimidating.

(snip)

We should be leery of enforced religious modesty, but also recognize that religious modesty isn’t necessarily coerced. Young university-educated women are likely to be making their own choices on such matters. And other young women may simply prefer not to be working out with the entire men’s basketball team hefting weights around them. (There’s a reason private women-only fitness facilities, such as Curves, exist.) Opponents of this proposal should be asking what they’re doing that is making their fellow classmates uncomfortable at the gym.

The emphasis and hyperlinks within the blockquote are mine, and are done to prove my point.

What she really wants is gym time without black men athletes in it, but she knows she can’t explicitly say that, so she’s hiding her true agenda behind SJW rhetoric of women in general and Muslim women, and throwing in the obligatory “it’s not sexist/segregationist.”

If Carleton was a major American university, the scholarship athletes would have their own gym(s), something she somewhat alludes to in the editorial.

ESPN:

Judge asks how ALCS will be played if Indians logo banned

An Ontario judge hearing arguments on an attempt to bar the Cleveland Indians from using their team name and “Chief Wahoo” logo during Monday’s night playoff game in Toronto asked the plaintiff’s lawyer how the game would be played if the name and logo didn’t appear.

The legal challenge by indigenous activist Douglas Cardinal comes on the same day the team plays the Toronto Blue Jays in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series.

(snip)

Swinwood said the legal challenge is a high-profile opportunity to bring awareness to the racism aboriginal people face in North America.

I’m sure the money, fame, payoffs and notoriety that would become Cardinal and Swinwood have nothing to do with it.

Those who can, do, those who can’t, become ethnic activists.

I bet that as I write these words, someone at The Undefeated is pounding out five to ten thousand words linking this back to Jackie Robinson and slavery.
