RTHK gets with program on TV service

Monday, April 13, 2015

RTHK will submit a proposal to the government on television services no later than June, according to management.

The public broadcaster is set to take over ATV’s analog TV service. RTHK assistant broadcasting director Forever Sze Wing-yuen said they have first to deal with issues such as network and satellite stations.

TV controller Kirindi Chan Man-kuen said the station will also have to discuss the possibility of increasing the type of programs, including news and shows bought from outside.

Chan said RTHK only has digital broadcasts and does not have the technology to deal with analog television. RTHK’s Amen Ng Man-yee said extra resources will need to be approved by the Legislative Council and it is not clear if this will be plain sailing.

“As an analog television [service], do we need television news? During the time we did digital broadcasts, we had such a plan. Taking over analog TV will speed up the plan.”

Ng said the budget for increasing manpower and resources will be submitted to the government within two months. She said she will also discuss with employees to see how much can be done with existing manpower. ATV’s license expires next April.

Disney fans protest against ‘whitewashing’ as more than 30,000 sign Mulan petition

Disney and the rest of racist hollywood can now use the “they can’t find Asian actors” excuse because Asians actors and actress are fleeing to Asia for acting jobs.

http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news/disney-fans-protest-against-whitewashing-as-more-than-30000-sign-mulan-petition-10170417.html

Disney fans have already began protesting against a white Mulanahead of the studio’s live action remake of the animated 1998 movie.

More than 30,000 people have signed an online petitiondemanding an Asian lead, as the legendary story is about a Chinese girl who goes to fight the Huns disguised as a man to save her ailing father’s life.

Hollywood has come under fire recently for the casting of white actors as characters meant to be from other races. US actressRooney Mara will play ‘Native American’ princess Tiger Lily inPan this summer, while Christian Bale starred as Moses inExodus: Gods and Kings because director Ridley Scott did not want “Mohammed so-and-so from such-and-such” in the main role.

Natalie Molnar, who founded the Mulan petition, writes that so-called whitewashing has a “direct, harmful impact on not only the movie itself but the audience”.

“Whitewashing implies that people of colour cannot be heroes (although they may at times be villains or supporting characters), leaving it far more difficult for countless children around the world to see themselves in the stories they love and think that they too can make a difference,” she says.

“It perpetuates a standard of beauty and goodness wherein whites are considered the ideal and norm despite that not only are Americans diverse, but the entire world is.

“As for the acting community, keeping diverse actors out of what should be diverse roles severely limits the number of roles they can get, especially a potentially name-making role such asMulan’s eponymous character would surely be.

Macau-born Ming-Na Wen originally voiced Mulan for Disney and can currently be seen in Marvel’s superhero series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

However, a recent study found that just 4 per cent of all female characters in Hollywood films last year were Asian or Latina, with only 11 per cent identifying as African-American.

Mulan will follow The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast,Dumbo and Pinocchio into a modern remake, with Disney already having enjoyed huge success with Alice in Wonderland,Maleficent and, most recently, Cinderella starring Lily James and Cate Blanchett.

Jim Sturgess was cast as the lead in the movie 21 about some card-counting MIT students. The real-life group of students was mostly Asian-American, in the movie only 2 of them were asian, and both played side roles with shallow character development, few lines, and little backstory.

Jim Sturgess was also cast to play a Korean man in Cloud Atlas, where they actually applied yellowface in the form of prosthetics and makeup to make their chosen british caucasian actor look Korean.

The last name of the sheriff in 30 Days of Night was changed to one that sounded more caucasian, since they chose Josh Hartnett to play a character who, in the comic books, is Inuit. The real-life town is 57% Native American and 22% white. In the movie there is only one Inuit character, who is played by a Samoan actor.

The lead role in the movie Drive was written as a Latina woman, which the director re-wrote so he could cast Carey Mulligan

The lead role in Stuck was loosely based on the real life story of a black woman, yet they cast Mena Suvari to play the role. And then actually gave her cornrows??

Keanu Reeves was chosen to play one of the 47 Ronin. Really?

The entire cast of both Exodus and Gods of Egypt.

Jake Gyllenhaal was chosen to play a Persian Prince

Rooney Mara was cast as Tiger Lily in the movie Pan coming out next year. Tiger Lily being the Native American princess in Peter Pan.

Katniss is not white in the books and is described as such, yet Jennifer Lawrence was cast to play her.

The real-life Tony Mendez is hispanic, while Ben Affleck who portrayed him in Argo is definitely not.

Jennifer Connelly was cast in A Beautiful Mind to play a wife that, in real life, is from El Salvador.

All of these happened in the last 15 years. It does happen. It happens all the time.

Kenya to UN: ‘Somali Refugees Must Leave in Three Months’

Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto says the government has given the United Nations High Commission for Refugees three months to close a refugee camp and send the 400,000 Somalis living there back to their country. The Kenyan government says the Dadaab refugee camp in eastern Kenya has become a recruitment center for the extremist group al-Shabab whose gunmen last week killed 148 people at the country’s Garissa College University. President Ruto said in rally on Saturday that Kenya must be secured at all costs.

what the fat coercion crowd ignore about obesity

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/health/news/11242009/Cost-of-obesity-greater-than-war-violence-and-terrorism.html

Obesity is a greater burden on the UK’s economy than armed violence, war and terrorism, costing the country nearly £47 billion a year, a report has found.

The study, commissioned by consultancy firm McKinsey and Company, revealed obesity has the second-largest economic impact on the UK behind smoking, generating an annual loss equivalent to 3% of GDP.

More than 2.1 billion people around the world – or nearly 30% of the global population – are now overweight or obese, with the figure set to rise to almost half of the world’s adult population by 2030, according to the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), which carried out the report.

It has now called for a ”coordinated response” from governments, retailers, restaurants and food and drink manufacturers to address the ”global obesity crisis”.

http://www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/effects/

The Health Effects of Overweight and Obesity

Research has shown that as people become “overweight” and “obese,”* their risk for developing the following conditions increases:1

  • Coronary heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Cancers (endometrial, breast, and colon)
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Dyslipidemia (for example, high total cholesterol or high levels of triglycerides)
  • Stroke
  • Liver and Gallbladder disease
  • Sleep apnea and breathing problems
  • Osteoarthritis (a breakdown of cartilage and bone within a joint)
  • Gynecological problems (abnormal periods, infertility)

*Overweight is defined as a body mass index (BMI) of 25 or higher; obesity is defined as a BMI of 30 or higher.

Mental health linked to losing battle against obesity

http://www.theprovince.com/health/Mental+health+linked+losing+battle+against+obesity/6798710/story.html

Fat tissue isn’t inert. It’s bio-logically active. It produces cortisol, a stress hormone, as well as inflammatory chemicals, both of which have been linked to mental illness. Cortisol is neuro-toxic. It can act on the brain in vulnerable people – putting them at increased risk for depression.

Conversely, people with depression produce excess cortisol. And one of the effects of cortisol on the body, Taylor and her colleagues recently reported in the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry, is a propensity to accumulate fat around the abdomen.

Conclusion:  Feminism with it’s promotion of obesity is a threat to public health

man hating Female Rape Apologist Barbara Ellen: “Men know nothing at all about being sex objects”

Looking at the case of Madeleine Martin, the 39-year-old RE teacher and mother of two, jailed for 32 months and placed on the sex offenders’ register for sleeping with a 15-year-old male pupil, do we seriously think that a female teacher sleeping with a male pupil is on a par with a male teacher sleeping with a girl pupil?

The Rise Of Heterophobia #letstalkmen #womenagainstfeminism

http://www.rooshv.com/the-rise-of-heterophobia

A new psychological disorder called heterophobia is infecting America. Promoting a heterosexual or traditional family lifestyle is becoming increasingly shamed while criticism of homosexual lifestyle is no longer allowed. Our culture is making it clear that when it comes to sex, only heterosexuality can be ridiculed, especially when it is practiced by men.

I believe we’re only 10-15 years away from when homosexuality or bisexuality will be seen as a superior lifestyle to heterosexuality. We’re already at the stage where homosexual couples are seen as more virtuous than male players (mainstream media criticizes game incessantly, but no such effort has been done on homosexual couples). Any lifestyle choice that involves men wanting to sleep with beautiful, thin women will be linked to misogyny and hate, while lifestyle choices involving men wanting to sleep with other men is seen as progressive and open-minded. Even the annual Thanksgiving Day Parade, an American family institution since 1927, is promoting a gay lifestyle by featuring singing and dancing homosexual men dressed up as women:

Heterophobia will be devastating on boys. Impressionable children will be bombarded with messages that guide them into adopting a lifestyle that has no genetic basis within them. And yes, I am saying that gayness is not 100% biological—there is absolutely an environmental component, as there is for all other human behavioral traits. A genetically straight man could be turned gay if raised in an environment that nurtures and encourages his slightest homosexual tendencies, which is what America is doing today. Gender re-education will ensure that even normal heterosexual boys will be softened. Masculinity and staunch heterosexuality will be seen as a nostalgic throwback, unsuitable for modern times.

Evidence of heterophobia can be found in the immense support network that gays can depend on. If you’re a gay boy and are teased in school, the administration will rush to action. There are web sites and toll free numbers to call if you need help. Unless you live in a rural town, you won’t have to go far to receive compassionate support. But how about if you’re a teenage boy who wants to have sex? Tough luck, you privileged freak. You will be brainwashed that consensual sex is possibly rape and flirting is sexual harrasment. They are telling boys now that you can’t touch a girl without her “permission.” The only support you got are guys like me, who are being put on hate lists. If you are growing up gay today, people trip over themselves to help you deal with your issues, but if you’re a straight boy, they’ll teach you harmful propaganda to prevent you from even getting laid. The culture is being successfully changed so that deviant homosexual behavior is accepted and embraced.

I pity young males in America today. Unless they become gay and decide to sleep with truckloads of random men, they will be attacked for being masculine, using techniques to achieve heterosexual sex, and making even mild criticisms against women or homosexual culture. They will fall prey to a system that wants to make them feel ashamed and privileged for being straight, and I’m afraid that as a result, many will succumb to this brainwashing and become—if not outright homosexual—unhappy beta males who have no idea how to pursue women without shame or guilt.

..

“Something very strange happened toward the end of the twentieth century. Heterosexuality went from being the norm to being on the defensive. By calling this phenomenon ‘heterophobia,’ I am not speaking abstractly. Rather, I am referring to a distinct current within feminism [since the late 1960s], a current that has been ‘theorized’ explicitly by feminist scholars and agitators alike as they attack men and heterosexuality. . . .
“But heterophobia is not merely the work of lesbian separatists, since they, vastly outnumbered by heterosexual women, could never have imposed such an agenda were it not acceptable to heterosexual feminists as well. . . .
“The British lesbian separatist Sheila Jeffreys, in her 1990 book Anticlimax, gives a clear account of the attitude I am calling ‘heterophobia.’ The ‘sexual revolution,’ Jeffreys argues, is positively detrimental to women. The aim of women’s liberation . . . is ‘the destruction of heterosexuality as a system.’ . . . Far from being grounded in biology, heterosexual desire ‘originates in the power relationship between men and women’ . . . What sort of sexuality, then, does Jeffreys approve of? ‘The opposite of heterosexual desire is the eroticising of sameness, a sameness of power, equality and mutuality. It is homosexual desire.’”
Daphne Patai, Heterophobia: Sexual Harassment and the Future of Feminism (1998)

…………….

“[T]he failure to examine heterosexuality as an institution is like failing to admit that the economic system called capitalism or the caste system of racism is maintained by a variety of forces, including both physical violence and false consciousness. . . .
“Lesbians have historically been deprived of a political existence through ‘inclusion’ as female versions of male homosexuality. To equate lesbian existence with male homosexuality because each is stigmatized is to deny and erase female reality once again. To separate those women stigmatized as ‘homosexual’ or ‘gay’ from the complex continuum of female resistance to enslavement, and attach them to a male pattern, is to falsify our history.”
Adrienne Rich, “Compulsory Heterosexuality and Lesbian Existence” (1980)

……………

from everyday feminism

Jenika McCrayer explains why men who are sexually attracted to women with breasts are misogynists.
McCrayer explains that “under a patriarchal system… we’re taught to believe that the female body exists solely for a man’s sexual pleasure and entertainment.” She then explains several reasons why liking breasts is a bad thing.
First, “It Dangerously Conflates Attraction and Fetishization.” She explains, “breasts are not solely for aesthetic or sexual purposes. They have a function. And there are painful consequences to fetishizing body parts associated with womanhood.”
More than that, “it’s cisnormative to equate breasts with femininity and womanhood. Not everyone who has breasts is a woman, and not all women have breasts.”
Second, “Fetishization Leads to Objectification and Dehumanization.” McCrayer writes, “Reducing people to their anatomy creates this space that some if not most of us exist outside of because we don’t fit into the male gaze’s narrow categories of what it means to be attractive or a woman.” . . .
McCrayer wrote this article because she received a letter from “a reader” whose husband wants equal rights for her, but also finds her breasts attractive, which she found “problematic.”

“All women are prisoners and hostages to men’s world. Men’s world is like a vast prison or concentration camp for women. This isn’t a metaphor, it’s reality. Each man is a threat. We can’t escape men. . . .
“[H]eterosexuality doesn’t exist and our ‘urges’ to bond with [men] emotionally or sexually aren’t natural drives but normal PTSD reactions to years of abuse and mind-programming.”
Radical Wind, August 2013

……..

This strange hostility toward viewing heterosexual behavior as natural, as a function of basic biology, also explains the attitude that led a Massachusetts college sex educator to complain:

I suppose I’ve been relying on students to find their own way to embracing biology as a valuable way to think about sex. But this point of view is so foreign to many of them, many of them Sociology or Women’s Studies majors who have never thought about sex in terms of biology or reproduction . . . And I suppose it was too much to ask that they get there on their own.
I wanted them to find their way to the notion that it’s not “heteronormative” to recognize that sex is an evolutionarily adaptive reproduction strategy that, in humans, involves males and females; it’s just our biology, and there’s a complex, mutually interacting relationship between the biological and the social. I’ve been working toward that all semester. But they have not gotten there.

#letstalkmen Wilkes McDermid Was Yet Another Victim Of A Society That Doesn’t Care About Fulfilling Men’s Basic Needs

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

-Dr. Seuss

On Feb 8, 2015, shortly after enjoying a gourmet steak dinner, Wilkes McDermid, a 39 year-old food blogger and to some a minor celebrity in London, lept to his death from the the upscale restaurant Coq D’Argent. It wasn’t the first time someone had committed suicide from leaping from the some 80-foot tall building. But what is different in McDermid’s case, is the reason for why he decided to take his own life.

In His Own (And Last) Words

In what has to be the most lucidly written suicide note I’ve ever seen, McDermid makes clear his reasons for leaving this world, summing it up in this way:

The reason for my death is simple. I have concluded that in the realm of dating and relationships the primary characteristics required for men are as follows.

-Height: above 5ft10
-Race: huge bias towards caucasian and black
-Wealth: or other manifestation of power

From my observations and research it appears that you need two of the three criteria for success with very few exceptions. What does this mean it means that it’s “game over” for me. By choosing to depart early, all I am doing is to accelerate the process of natural selection whilst saving myself a great deal of long term pain in the process.

McDermid goes on to calmly and rationally make his case, in a manner that, on rational and logical grounds, is hard to refute—after all, many studies have validated the fact that women the world over have a marked preference for male height; that White or failing that Black men do indeed fare well on the mating market ceteris paribus; and that Asian men, in the Western world at least, come dead last in terms of desirability.

When I first found out about McDermid’s situation, I couldn’t help but think back to manosphere critics’ favorite whipping boy Elliot Rodger, the American spree shooter whose bizarre manifesto and final YouTube message sparked an international conversation about a range of issues.

Rodger was held out as the result of the sector of the Internet that concerns itself with the interests, needs, and yes, challenges of men—a result that is by its very nature, a warped, twisted, and perverted one, that is obsessed with equal parts entitlement to women’s bodies and simultaneous hatred of women, too.

But, while the world reacted to the Rodger tragedy, McDermid’s untimely demise barely registered a blip on the UK press’ radar screen, and didn’t even break the American media markets.

The question has to be why?

Perhaps it’s because unlike Rodger, McDermid only took his own life? Perhaps because unlike Rodger, McDermid’s manifesto didn’t have harsh sounding words reserved for the ladies who rebuffed him? Or perhaps it was because unlike Rodger, who professed to have attempted game and pickup and failed, McDermid’s last communication to humanity contained no such references?

Maybe it was all of the above. But what definitely leapt out at me about the McDermid tragedy, was the utter indifference of it all on the part of the wider public. It was as if we were perfectly cool with a man offing himself. So long it’s only himself, and not anyone else—especially women.

After all, it’s a well known fact that men kill themselves at an astonishing rate, and even suicides of Oscar-winning national treasures like the late Robin Williams can’t spark the kind of outpouring of humanity that Rodger’s rampage could with regard to women (even when it was proven that he killed more men than anyone else).

Of course, for those of us inside the manosphere, the solution to McDermid’s woes was easy: get game, right? And for those on the outside looking in, the answer is just as easy: get therapy, right?

Well, here’s the problem with both sides of the divide: neither are keeping it brutally 100.

‘Feminist’ Lib Dem Candidate Caught On Camera In Strip Club

The party that have a member ,an executive member mentally-ill gender freak Sarah Noble who openly advocating the genocide of men who is not arrested or punished for breaking hate laws. is caught in a another scandal.  a feminist, religious muslim caught with his pants down.

http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/04/11/feminist-lib-dem-candidate-caught-on-camera-in-strip-club/

A Parliamentary hopeful who claims he is a ‘feminist’ has been caught on CCTV camera in a strip club, repeatedly trying to touch a naked lap dancer.

Maajid Nawaz, the Liberal Democrat candidate for Hampstead and Kilburn, visited the club in Whitechapel during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan where he and his friend were seen drinking heavily, the Daily Mail reports.

The former convicted extremist can be seen in the film trying to make physical contact with the woman during two private lap dances, costing £20 each.

The married father-of-one, considered a rising star in the party, who is also a leading figure in the Muslim community, was described as “very drunk” by the club’s manager, Say Shah.

“In general, he was quite persistent with her, asking to take her out and for her number,” he said of Mr Nawaz, who calls himself an advocate of women’s rights.

The 37 year old, who is head of the anti-extremist group the Quillam Foundation, often campaigns against Female Genital Mutilation and paints himself as a role model for young Muslim men at risk of being radicalised.

But his behaviour in an East London strip club has seen him branded a “hypocrite” by the club’s owner, Abdul Malik, who said he wanted the video to go public because Nawaz portrays himself as a feminist and a family man.

“He’s always talking about religion on TV and I thought, what a hypocrite,” he said.

Outspoken Tory MP Nadine Dorries called for Nawaz to stand down from his candidacy, saying “In politics, you can’t advocate one cause or manner of behaviour then act differently in your personal life.”

And Labour MP Khalid Mahmood said “The message this sends to women is not one of respect.”

Nawaz was jailed in Eygpt in 2005 for his role in the Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir, where he met his first wife Rabia Nawaz.  On his return to England the following year he renounced his views and established himself as a spokesman on extremism.

“The evening you refer to was our client’s stag night before his marriage,” they said.

“His best man took him to the gentleman’s club with the full knowledge of our client’s then future wife (now his wife).”

Crazy People Are Dangerous

http://theothermccain.com/2015/04/12/deborah-frisch-deb-frisch-crazy-professor-arrested/

Deborah E. Frisch, Ph.D., is due in court Monday:

The former University of ­Oregon professor released from jail [March 30] after pleading guilty to making a false report against a Eugene police officer is again behind bars on similar charges.
Deborah Ellen Frisch, 53, is facing a charge of initiating a false report and a probation ­violation in the previous case.
According to court records, Frisch returned to her home on Modesto Drive on Monday after being held in the Lane County Jail for 39 days and within two hours of her release called the Eugene Police Department’s nonemergency line.
During that call, court records show, Frisch accused two police officers who served a search warrant on her home of having sexual relations in her bed and leaving behind bodily fluids and sexually transmitted diseases.
Frisch said in the recorded phone conversation that she wanted to document the event because she was afraid she would get a venereal disease, the document states.
She insisted an officer come to her home or she would call 911, according to the report.
Police said 11 minutes later, Frisch called 911 to make a similar report, asking that “someone document a crime scene by the pigs at the Eugene Police Department,” the document states.
She was arraigned on Friday.
Frisch, who has a doctorate in psychology, was arrested in February for three counts of stalking after police accused her of repeatedly harassing a city police officer, another city of Eugene employee, and the director of a local nonprofit agency. Those charges were dismissed eventually, but not before Frisch accused a female officer of sexually assaulting her. She entered an Alford plea to a charge of false reporting Monday and was sentenced to two years of probation.
She is required to undergo a mental health evaluation.
For several years between 1988 and 2001, Frisch taught at the UO psychology department. She then taught at the University of Arizona but resigned in 2006 after writing inflammatory online comments to a conservative blogger.

Oh, that Deb Frish! You remember this notorious moonbat who thought she could use the anonymity of the Internet to make obscene and perverse suggestions against Jeff Goldstein of Protein Wisdom:

Frisch, 44, said she quit her $32,861-a-year part time position not only because she fears for her safety, but because she regrets the [the University of Arizona] ended up in the middle of what was intended to be a “sick joke.” . . .
These people think I should be incarcerated, that I’m mentally ill or that I should be shot,” Frisch said during a telephone interview from Eugene, Ore., where she is living now. “This whole thing has been crazy to me. People have spent their whole weekend on this.” . . .
At first, Frisch said she was enjoying herself.
“I like to play with fire. I’m a left-wing Rush Limbaugh. I’m a writer and I like to fight with words. I’m a word warrior.”
Suddenly though, Frisch said, the conversation degenerated into disparaging personal remarks, many of a sexual nature. . . .
“I wrote something that would make him as queasy as they were making me feel,” Frisch said.

So she told the Arizona Daily Star in July 2006. Notice that Frisch tries to depict herself as a victim, employs the typical “It Was Just a Joke” defense, and suggests that this was just an Internet argument that got out of hand. That is to say, she engaged in rationalizations that were an effort to shift blame away from herself and evade responsibility.

DARVO — Deny, Attack, and Reverse Victim and Offender:

DARVO refers to a reaction that perpetrators of wrong doing . . . may display in response to being held accountable for their behavior. The perpetrator or offender may Deny the behavior, Attack the individual doing the confronting, and Reverse the roles of Victim and Offender such that the perpetrator assumes the victim role and turns the true victim into an alleged offender. . . .

We have discussed DARVO syndrome before. It is most typical of sexual perverts, who make accusations of wrongdoing against others in an effort to discredit their accusers and elicit sympathy for themselves.

People engaged in DARVO are “abusive . . . indignant, self-righteous and manipulative,” they typically “threaten, bully and make a nightmare for anyone who holds them accountable or asks them to change their abusive behavior. This attack, intended to chill and terrify, typically includes threats of lawsuits.” You can click here to read about one of Deb Frisch’s lawsuits, in which she referred to lawyers as “shyster-vermin” and called a federal judge a “frocked cowf–ker.”

Could I explain the psychological causes of such behavior? Sure, but that’s not the relevant point. The point is that this type of personality and this kind of behavior is not unusual among Internet trolls. Remember what Deb Frisch wrote about Jeff Goldstein’s son:

I’d like to hear more about your “tyke” by the way. Girl? Boy? Toddler? Teen? Are you still married to the woman you ephed to give birth to the tyke?
Tell all, bro!

I reiterate: If some nutcase kidnapped your child tomorrow and did to her what was done to your fellow Coloradan, Jon-Benet Ramsey, I wouldn’t give a damn.

Somehow, Jeffy boy, I think you get off on the possibility of Frenching your pathetic progeny, even if it is a boy. You seem like a VERY, VERY sick mofo to me, bro.

You know, Jeff, I just don’t get it. You say, and I believe you, that a human female chose to procreate with you and you have produced a 2 year old progeny. . . .
So the poor bitch is dirt poor and that’s why she pretended you were worthy of procreating with?

Deborah E. Frisch, Ph.D., a professor of psychology wrote that.

This morning, I was trying to explain #AreYouBlocked to my wife. Why is it relevant that a campaign to “blackball” people in the videogame industry has been led by a person under psychiatric care?

In explaining the gravity of this problem to my wife, I mentioned Deb Frisch as an example of where the crazy people come from and what kind of things they do. Then, out of idle curiosity, I decided to Google Deb Frisch to refresh my memory on the specifics and found the Deb Frisch Timeline blog that has been updating readers on her madness for years:

October 14-18, 2010 — Repeating the activity which cost her a job in 2006, Deborah Frisch sexually menaces two young girls in Eugene Oregon. Frisch tries to hide from her crime by sending threatening emails to the victims’ father under a false name; when Frisch’s flimsy subterfuge is blown, she goes on a 72 hour blog/Facebook/email/telephone harassment frenzy.

There is a pattern here, you see: Deb Frisch makes lurid sexual accusations against others, and becomes unhinged when her wrongdoing is exposed.

“God gave them up unto vile affections . . . God gave them over to a reprobate mind . . .”
Romans 1:26-28 (KJV)

Beware of reprobate minds. Crazy people are dangerous.

Mainstream media drops the ball on #SadPuppes & the #HugoAwards

When news emerged  that sci-fi books recommended by conservative-leaning author Brad R. Torgersen had swept the prestigious Hugo Awards nominations, sections of the mainstream media flew into an all-too-predictable panic. Disturbed by the idea that popular culture might liberate itself from “progressive” elites, journalists across multiple publications went into attack mode.

After the news broke, a series of brazenly inaccurate reports appeared in the mainstream press, some of which had to undergo humiliating corrections later in the week. Despite being conceived by Hispanic author Larry Correia and openly declaring their indifference to race and gender, the media accused Torgersen and Correia’s campaign of being “against diversity” in sci-fi.

One of the most egregious errors came from Entertainment Weekly, which ran a headline accusing Correia and Torgersen of running a “racist, misogynistic voting campaign”. After a stern letter from Torgersen himself, Entertainment Weekly changed the headline andupdated the article with a correction that acknowledged the sheer extent of their inaccuracy. The reporter who wrote the article later deleted her Twitter account.

“CORRECTION: After misinterpreting reports in other news publications, EW published an unfair and inaccurate depiction of the Sad Puppies voting slate, which does, in fact, include many women and writers of color. As Sad Puppies’ Brad Torgerson explained to EW, the slate includes both women and non-caucasian writers, including Rajnar Vajra, Larry Correia, Annie Bellet, Kary English, Toni Weisskopf, Ann Sowards, Megan Gray, Sheila Gilbert, Jennifer Brozek, Cedar Sanderson, and Amanda Green.
This story has been updated to more accurately reflect this. EW regrets the error.”

Entertainment Weekly

The Daily Telegraph also fell victim to the panicked narrative, running a story thataccused Torgersen’s campaign of “preventing female authors and authors of colour” from being “proportionally represented”. The article, which was published without a byline, was almost completely re-written  following complaints.

As you might expect, the most hysterical reporting came from the tabloid blog Gawker, which accused Torgersen’s campaign of being a “front” for “GamerGate’s misogynistic war on women”.  Gawker has been obsessed with the gamers’ movement ever since it cost themover a million dollars in advertising revenue. But if gamergate were really about misogyny (hint: it isn’t), then supporting Torgersen’s campaign, which included more than a dozen female nominees, would be a terrible way of going about it.

The only comparison that can be made between Torgersen’s campaign and GamerGate is in how the press reacted to it. Similarly to GamerGate, multiple press outlets were pushing a single opinion – that Torgersen’s campaign was racist, sexist, and reactionary. This bore a strong resemblance to the “Gamers are Dead” narrative that ran across multiple publications in August 2014. In both cases, anti-elite campaigns were smeared as bigoted and exclusionary, despite their diversity of support.

The debate reached a nadir when Torgersen felt compelled to post a picture of his mixed-race family, only to once again be accused of racism by Salon.com contributor Arthur Chu. Female supporters of Torgersen’s campaign, such as Cedar Sanderson and Sarah Hoyt were also sidelined by the press. Just like supporters of “NotYourShield”, women and minorities who object to the narrative were ignored and even belittled.

Torgersen and Correia have done more than expose the cliquish nature of the Hugo Awards. They have also exposed the crisis of the mainstream media and its approach to identity politics. Reporters across multiple publications are credulously repeating narratives spun by activists, with scant attempts to interrogate their arguments or reach out to their critics. Whether it’s the sycophantic reporting of Pao vs Kleiner , the disastrousUVA gang rape story, or internal disputes in sci-fi and gaming, the signs of journalistic failure are everywhere.

Moreover, as much as might wish it to be so, it isn’t just right-wingers who are sick of the mainstream media. Tired of the constant narrative-spinning, liberals and left-libertarians are also abandoning them in droves. Without serious changes to the way they handle stories involving race, gender, and other forms of identity, the media’s credibility will continue to decline.
