the stupid meter off of all scales

this is so stupid that you cannot make this up

I would refer to them as idiots or morons but that would be rather harsh on real morons and idiots that do not deserve to be classified with these "things"

what purpose is served by refusing to acknowledge true facts presented by straight white men


Quote:
Academics and scholars must be mindful about using research done by only straight, white men, according to two scientists who argued that it oppresses diverse voices and bolsters the status of already privileged and established white male scholars.

Geographers Carrie Mott and Daniel Cockayne argued in a recent paper that doing so also perpetuates what they call “white heteromasculinism,” which they defined as a “system of oppression” that benefits only those who are “white, male, able-bodied, economically privileged, heterosexual, and cisgendered.” (Cisgendered describes people whose gender identity matches their birth sex.)

Mott, a professor at Rutgers University in New Jersey, and Cockayne, who teaches at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, argued that scholars or researchers disproportionately cite the work of white men, thereby unfairly adding credence to the body of knowledge they offer while ignoring the voices of other groups, like women and black male academics. Although citation seems like a mundane practice, the feminist professors argue that citing someone's work has implications on his or her ability to be hired, get promoted and obtain tenured status, among others.

I believe they are right if they focus a bit and say "liberal white men". Nothing they say is worth a hoot.

I like how they classify 'geographers' as 'scientists'. Anyone else catch that?

I thought science was colorblind and only went by the quality of research and data generated? If whites dominate science, which they have, isn't that a matter of their ability, along with overall population?

Jews are a tiny minority, yet grossly over-represented in science and scientific achievements. Should there be restrictions on how many Jews win the Nobel Prize so that other groups get a "fair chance," or do we only want the most groundbreaking discoveries to be the eligibility requirement? Whites and Asians are going to dominate unless they lower the standards enough that other minorities get representation proportionate to their population (but in excess of their ability).

They deserve the term more than sociologists - who claim to be as well.

That sounds like a Martin post though he would say something more like "tugging your tallywhacker"

And yes, it's somewhat an open season on Caucasians starting to build. Funny thing is that many of the younger or intellectual caucs are in on the ride as long as it's the establishment, and that be us.

Hundreds of thousands of academic things get published every year. These folks are practicing a technique that relies on claiming outrageous bullshit to get published. The only reason you have heard of it is because it is outrageous bullshit.

In a decade, all these types of papers will be forgotten. Or maybe a few weeks. There is already a huge backlash against this nonsense. Just ignore them.

These people are demanding equality in actual achievement, vs a bias free environment to compete equally with all others.

They want a finger, foot, brick, 1000 round block of 308 stacked on the scale of equality, but it MUST be all in their favor.

Sadly, this shit is pervasive in the thinking of many people.

The problem with RJ is you never really know what he believes.

He has posted that he intentionally f_cks with people to explore subjects. So who knows.

Dunno. Hope springs eternal from the cold weather bunch of crackers. Hate to break it to you guys up there. Going bowling, snow machines and freezing your ass off doesn't give you the upper hand. This time of year we are having payback time for our sins while you guys are enjoying the summer.

Too hot here to worry much about winter when all the hard core Norseman come here to tell us how we need to quit acting redneck

I like redneck. These f_ckin scandanavians are annoying. I'm not from here. I'm a minority. Chicks are awesome but they are all 6 foot tall and weigh 200 plus by age 30.

BTW, winter clothes are much improved. You would love ice fishing. My shack is 75 degrees and has satellite and sofas.

And I'm still waiting to hear about the Dallas shoot.

Well 6' Blondes are a great fit for me
as far as 200#+ by 30, shit man you must have never been down south brother.
Down there many are well over 200#s by 25 and most are WELL under 6'

We were running Dish network on fishing shacks back in the late 90s here, some resorts were huge in cloning cards back then

The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

That's a good read.
It does forget or not discuss one aspect of this though.
Its far easier to pack up your education, skills, and knowledge, than your farm land, crops, and livestock when you need to run for your life when the recurrent purges occurred.

There is cisgender, and there is disease, physical or mental.
