    For Pride Month the Cuddly One has announced he is disorientated by gender fluidity.

    Aboslutely love the straight pride video. Helarious.

    Every day is straight pride day. While I am sure that there are occasional unfair and quite rare “pick on straight people” days, beat up a straight couple days, kick your straight kids out of home days or “don’t give that breeder a job” days. I’m not sure that it’s really necessary to get together and have a huge crazy over the top flaming party to force all those LGTB people to recognise that they aren’t going to be abused or discriminated against anymore and that their straightness must be acknowledged and will need to be agressively normalised until that discrimination against straight people comes to an end.

    If they want to get together and do that…why should they be stopped? Do you think Madonna or Kylie Minogue will come and sing?

    An intelligent article debunking the bad pop psychology of Jordan Peterson that you might like to disagree (or not) with.

    I thought this article is pretty silly.  It comes down to, if you don’t like marxism then you’re evil.  I found that they are twisting a lot of what Jordan Peterson says, through the lens of marxist theory.

    his paranoid and conspiratorial politics are hard to distinguish from the alt-right’s denunciations of cultural Marxism.

    I don’t think he’s paranoid or conspiratorial.  He lives on university campuses in Canada and the US, and has been hounded half to death: he’s bound to question what’s going on around him.

    These people don’t like Peterson because he speaks against the silly regressive Left, and says a lot of unfashionable things.  End of story.  There are many instances of him changing people’s lives (mainly men) away from abject loserdom into getting their lives together.  I used to spend a lot of time on his Facebook page, I’m anti-racist, anti-sexist and pro-LBGT, and I don’t find anything alarming in what I can figure out of what he is talking about.

    JP has become almost a cult leader for disillusioned men and well I  think he is a positive force except he clings on to some imaginary version of a xtian god.

    I think he does a good job of what he sets out to do.
