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.





One Thing Leads To Another

Re the race graffiti at Barnwell Middle in the Francis Howell district.

Francis Howell, as in the district where Normandy is sending transfer students.

Something tells me the two things are somehow related.

DESE gives Riverview Garbage provisional accreditation, valid as of the start of the district’s second semester of this school year, in early January.  However, the Turner Law transfers can continue through the end of the year, and won’t have to resume at RG schools until the start of the next school year.





How to Tell This Is a Hoax

A real racist doing real racist fliers for real wouldn’t have included the homophobic parts.

This was a hoax perpetrated by some BLM-type black lesbian.  Blacks are good for hoaxing, and lesbians are really good for hoaxing, so when you put to two together, you have a super duper intersectionality hoaxing machine.

Enh.

Not good, not bad.

Speaking of Ed, Steve Sailer’s weekly column this week about what Trump could and should do re Ed.

I just don’t know how much of this a pro-charters ideologue is really going to be able to accomplish, much less would actually be interested in doing.

 





Sneaking the Shit In

If you read this medium faithfully, you’ll be able to pick up on the crux of the thing right away, because I did a story about it here three months ago.

But, go read this, and tell me what’s wrong.

The race to the gold star starts…NOW.





Why It Doesn’t Matter

The Federal judge overseeing the lawsuit over the voting method used in the Ferguson-Florissant School District for its board members is settling on cumulative voting for the remedy for the non-problem.

And why won’t it matter in the long run?

The last paragraph in this article:

About 80 percent of the school district’s 11,200 students are black, and 12 percent are white. The population in the district is nearly evenly split between black and white.

Old whites, and young blacks.  The trend is easy to see.  Eventually, DESE will take over this whole district, and the elected board won’t matter.  Unfortunately, thanks to the guddam Turner Law, it also means that in that scenario, FFSD students would be able to transfer out.

Otherwise, I hope this disparate impact craziness vis-a-vis the Federal judiciary is something we can at least seriously discuss and maybe even do something about in the next four to eight years.
