These people are just attention whore and losers, surely if you just ignore them they will go away?
I wish it were true, but history has shown us that things like this do not just ‘go away’ if you ignore them.
Some random examples… Christianity, Fox News, Feminism, Scientology, Islam, Glen Beck, Sarah Palin, Ray Comfort, and so the list goes on.
If left unchallenged, dumb ideas will happily spread.
-This is why we fight!
OKLAHOMA CITY — A high school curriculum supported by Hobby Lobby chain president Steve Green, billed as a way to teach archaeology, history and the arts through Bible stories, also tells students God is always there in times of trouble and that sinners must “suffer the consequences” of disobeying.
The Mustang School Board in suburban Oklahoma City voted this month to place the Museum of the Bible’s curriculum in its schools as an elective for a one-year trial after being assured that the intent is not to proselytize but to use the Bible to explain key principles in the arts and sciences.
While the course does explain the inspiration behind famous works of art and holds a prism to historical events, it also endorses behavior for religious reasons and implies that bad things happen as a direct result of disregarding God’s rules.
The Associated Press obtained a draft copy of the curriculum from the American Civil Liberties Union of Oklahoma, which got it from the school district. The ACLU and the Freedom From Religion Foundation say using the curriculum raises constitutional issues and want the school district to reconsider.
This website has seen many students, faculty members, and administrators – especially in “higher education” – say some pretty dumb and hateful things about men and boys, often with the general support or acquiescence of the academic community. It has happened so much that it is increasingly hard to top the moral contortions and blind hatred they have pushed out over the years, like an unregulated megacorporation spilling toxic waste into the public drinking water.
But this case is pushing it. Straight from the Goshen College website, on a page titled “What men can do to stop rape”:
“Don’t allow psychological rape or commit it yourself. Psychological rape consists of verbal harassment, whistles, kissing noises, heavy breathing, sly comments or stares. These are all assaults on any woman’s sense of well-being.”
That’s it, men. It’s time to come to terms with our Patriarchal Privilege™. We actually are all rapists. We just never knew it until Goshen College told us.
Of course, under this definition most (if not all) women would be rapists as well. But as Feminists & Friends have told us in the past, since rape is all about The Patriarchy™ men cannot be raped anyway.
And neither can boys be raped, even by female teachers in lower education. Because rape is all about male privilege and male power, and since women do not have either of those things, male victims of rape don’t exist. Hence the need for these “don’t rape, you rapist!” campaigns to exclusively target men.
And remember: according to the wisdom of everyday Feminists, misandry doesn’t exist. And feminist extremism is “a thing of the past” and “totally not mainstream.”
Realness, or Drake’s new-school conception of it, is central to his persona, but does that apply to liner notes? The Toronto rapper and singer may need to pay a pretty penny for“Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2,” the expansive Jay Z collaboration from last year’sNothing Was the Same. According to TMZ, a lawsuit claims Drake never got approval to use the track’s opening sample despite liner notes indicating he did get that permission.
The lawsuit, filed by the estate of late jazz musician Jimmy Smith, concerns the use of Smith’s 1982 “Jimmy Smith Rap.” The complaint names Drake, label Cash Money, and others, and the estate reportedly wants more than $300,000. No word from the October’s Very Own camp just yet on the matter.
The case brings to mind a slightly different lawsuit, against Frank Ocean, who credited various other songwriters in the liner notes for “Super Rich Kids” but was hit with a claim by another relevant copyright holder. And while it can’t yet be said that every lawsuit is Drake v. Drake, the “Hold On, We’re Going Home” singer definitely is no stranger to legal paperwork. There was a Chicago touring dispute late last year, a whole mess over the woman’s voice on “Marvins Room,” and then who could forget Drake’s spat with Chris Brown?
In more recent Drake goings-on, watch him poke fun at himself with strangers’ help on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and catch him when he hosts the ESPYs on July 16.
LOS ANGELES — Chase Bank has reportedly sent out letters to hundreds of porn stars notifying them that their accounts would be closed on May 11. Teagan Presley confirmed to XBIZ that her personal account was one of the ones shut down.
“I got a letter and it was like please cancel all transactions, please fix your automatic pay account and make sure everything’s taken care of by May 11,” Presley told XBIZ. “I called them and they told me that because I am, I guess, public and am recognizable in the adult business, they’re closing my account. Even though I don’t use my account, it’s my personal account that I’ve had since I was 18, when it was Washington Mutual before Chase bought them out.”
One of the letters, posted here by Perez Hilton, succinctly informs the recipient of the impending closure without citing specific reasons.
