Latest snowflake outrage

The kids who watched it expected their lives to turn out along those lines and many got a real shock when they discovered the real world was NOT like "Friends" and they had to get real jobs and didn't spend their time sitting in a cafe all day.
The magazine Wired had a column relating to novel use of words. "Time Porn" was used to describe TV shows which gave an unrealistic impression of social vs work time and Friends was the named example.

"So whiteness is like the air that you breathe when you live in a polluted city — where you get taught that pollution has no negative impact.
You don't notice that it’s toxic or pervasive — even when it's making you feel sick.
And like pollution, whiteness is treated like it’s healthy, normal, and comes with no consequences."

Er, O.k. then 8O
 
Absolutely barking:

Based on my own healing journey from internalized oppression and work in social justice, I realized there’s an unnamed trauma present that’s driving white fragility and white guilt...


It’s the trauma of people of European descent being turned into white people by white supremacy — and then being taught that whiteness is good, but doesn’t exist.


So whiteness is like the air that you breathe when you live in a polluted city — where you get taught that pollution has no negative impact.

Anger after 'hardcore huntress' shoots goat

Woman shoots invasive non native species in Jockland, the horror! Snowflakes demand a ban for hunting.

Typical yank behaviour shooting things, but quite what the stalking skills are for the sheep I was struggling with?
I mean its not as though it was on a range and had accidently been shot as it wandered on.
I assume Old MacDonald will be seeking suitable recompense for his prize stud Ram as the daft bints posted it all over the net.
 
"But to see people in camouflage with highly powered sniper rifles rejoicing at the killing of a goat, let alone a ram, is simply unacceptable.

Emotive bollocks intended to convey a very negative "fink they are in da armee impression to the "all soldiers are homophobic baby killing fascists" audience

I'm not defending her but some of those Jock animals are just plain nasty

 
"Obviously deer culling and deer stalking is established on the island and it's a necessary thing to do considering the lack of control of deer numbers.

"But to see people in camouflage with highly powered sniper rifles"
What do the cullers dress in? Clown suits?
And what do they use? Low powered fairground rifles?
 
Filthy lucre (for vegans anyway)?

'The news that Australian bank notes contain the animal product is not welcome news to vegans — or, it has been suggested, to many Hindus, Muslims, Jews, Sikhs and Jains.'

Surprising ingredient found in Aussie banknotes
I'm still waiting for the first snowflake to start campaigning against the use of tallow in the manufacture of their mobile phone, tablet, PC, hairbrush or pretty much anything else made from plastic, as it's a commonly used release or slip agent.

These will be the same vegans that buy 'organic' forgetting that by doing so they are indirectly supporting the livestock industry!
 
I may have mentioned this before but a retired schoolteacher mate of mine (a good bloke, very switched on and perceptive) once told me that he felt that the TV series "Friends" was partly responsible.

The kids watched "Friends" and saw a bunch of 20 somethings, whose main worries were "relationships" and who spent their time hanging a round in each others apartments or at a cafe. Things just "happened" for them, no real life problems, mortgages, work etc and it gave them an unreasonably high level expectation of life after school and uni.

The kids who watched it expected their lives to turn out along those lines and many got a real shock when they discovered the real world was NOT like "Friends" and they had to get real jobs and didn't spend their time sitting in a cafe all day.
Oddly, or maybe not these days, youngsters who watch Friends now have been bleating about it being misogynistic and homophobic.
 
In a cafe in Edinburgh today, I asked for a black coffee, or perhaps (judging by the looks) I’d asked for a toasted black baby on a pitchfork...
“We call it Americano because some people are upset by the other name” says the earnest young waitress,
“Ah” I say, “but it’s ok for me to order a flat white?”
Waitress scuttles off and comes back with a black coffee...

Fixed that for you. None of these would be offended or ashamed to order black coffee.
