Does a Children’s Story NEED Gay Kangaroos?

In The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There, a fantasy novel variously categorized as children’s or young adult– no, I’m not going to provide a link– writer Catherynne Valente launches a psychotically vicious attack on traditional marriage. Don’t worry, though; she’s not against all relationships: She also includes pro-homosexual propagandizing.

Soon after our heroine enters Fairyland, the poisonously hateful attack on marriage commences. It comes in the form of the Hreinn, creatures who if captured by hunters must do all their cooking, sewing, etc., for them, as well as bearing “the hunters’” children. This is not at all subtle in its bizarre feminist editorializing about traditional marriage being female slavery, ZOMG!!!! Yet the traditional marriage portrayed here has one massive element missing: The man.

What is he doing all day in this rad-fem scenario, while the Hreinn are forced to clean “his” house? Oh, right, working a 40-hour-a-week job to support himself and his wife. All this is completely absent from Valente’s portrayal. The Hreinn (housewives) bitch that they have to cook, but don’t discuss that the man is working to buy the food, or they wouldn’t have anything to cook! OR EAT. They kvetch about cleaning the house. Who is earning the money to pay for the house? Seriously, who is working to pay the mortgage to keep the rain off your brainless little head? In the insane feminist fantasyland, when men say they’re going to work, they’re really just drinking beer and having sex with supermodels while women are doing the housework.

Just in case you’ve ever wondered if feminists are actually as stupid and self-centered as they seem. Talk about “out of sight, out of mind”! If a feminazi can’t actually see you doing the work, it literally doesn’t occur to her that you might be doing work! There seems to be nothing in their heads except for the impressions created by immediate sense data.

“I’m here, vacuuming the rug, and he’s not! Bastard!”
“What do you think he’s doing right now?”
“I don’t know. Never thought about it!”
“Where do you get the clothes you complain about laundering?”
“What do you mean, where do I get them? They come from my closet, duh!”

This is immediately followed by an ethereal “Three cheers for lesbians!” Valente includes a lesbian couple and works in that the poor dears are oppressed. This is because… wait for it… people “look at them askance.” Oh my God! Call Amnesty International! (The funny thing is that since this is fiction, she could have had them getting lynched or whatever. But no, being looked at askance is oppression in this whacko’s worldview.)

The surreal pro-homosexual propaganda continues in a later chapter, where we get underground mining kangaroos, one of which has a gay lover. This is established somewhat elliptically, but that’s the best we can say of it. First, the kangaroo, a male, says of another kangaroo, “he broke my heart.” Now this by itself is ambiguous, but there’s more. The two kangas shared a stone and a few sentences later it is remarked that that kind of stone is for lovers. Oh, barf. What kind of sicko attacks man-woman marriage and feels a need to get in three cheers for gay animal sex?

In a children’s book?! How sick do you have to be to write that?

Must we have stumping for gay sex in a children’s book? Would a reasonable, non-ideological person say that’s the best decision? Is it okay to have just… stories? Just stories that don’t leap up and scream politics in your face?

The Left’s usual party line in this kind of context is, “But they show heterosexual lovers and spouses all the time in children’s books! That’s just as propagandistic!” No it isn’t! Portraying everyday normality, and portraying it as everyday normality, is not propagandistic. Getting up and whacking people upside the head with your special-interest political agenda is. “But…but… in your preferred approach, heterosexual relationships are portrayed as normal!” Yes, because heterosexual relationships are normal, you morons!

Gotta love that “portrayed,” by the way.

“Portraying” the sky as blue is not propagandistic. Portraying the sky as an orange background, with the first-string roster of the 1982 Hartford Whalers written across it in flaming green letters, is propagandistic. That’s because the second one is not true, you fucking psychos!

The thing about the gay sex element is, it isn’t about reproduction, even implicitly, since gay sex is not reproductive. Therefore, what we have here is the portrayal of pure sex, sex for its own sake. In a heterosexual relationship, it is all about reproduction, even if only obliquely, because that’s the entire evolutionary reason that sex exists. So even if your young child asks you questions about a man-woman marriage that force you to discuss the sex, you can mention genital intercourse and segue to having kids. I.e., the sex isn’t just about the sex. Do I actually have to say that sex for the sake of sex is inappropriate in a children’s story? Sex for the sake of sex is pornography. Literally, that’s the definition of pornography. I’m all for porn in its place, but in a children’s story?

What exactly are you going to tell your kid if s/he asks about specifics of these gay lovers? What are these gay kangas doing that makes them lovers, as opposed to friends? Well, they’re either sucking each other’s penises, having anal sex, or giving each other handjobs, or I guess, pawjobs. Or all three. There is nothing here about a reproductive sexual act that has some raison d’etre outside itself. No, there is just a couple of male kangaroos fucking each other in the ass.

In a novel intended for children.

So Catherine Valente is so evil and insane, so damaged, that she spews hate propaganda about man-woman marriage… but presents her ideal fantasy land announcing, “I have seen the future, and it is ass-ramming kangaroos.”

Look, people, I don’t mind adult male kangaroos sodomizing each other, in the privacy of their own San Francisco apartment, if that’s what they want to do. It just has no place in a children’s novel.

In 2016 the Left themselves rejected the short story Space Raptor Butt Invasion for a Hugo Award, apparently on the grounds that it wasn’t really a serious nominee for a Hugo. But we’re supposed to keep a solemn expression on our faces and nod profoundly as we contemplate the loving eroticism of kangaroos sixty-nining. People, Space Raptor Butt Invasion was a joke. And it wasn’t offered to children. Ass-ramming gay kangas is presented as serious, and material for children.

Grok this: The Left is not a political movement. It is sheer evil and insanity that has masked itself as a political movement for strategic reasons.

To put it another way, it is the political arm of insanity. The Left is like Hannibal Lechter in that scene from The Silence of the Lambs in which Lechter carves off the dead cop’s face and places it over his own face as a disguise. The Left is not “political” as healthy, sane people understand the word “political.” It is pure evil in political guise.

The Left gave up its last tiny shreds of sanity years ago. It’s now on the descent into the combination asylum and torture chamber that is Hell. And its goal is to drag everyone else there – including your kids – with it.

Last Post on the NFL Drama Queenery?

…at least, unless anything else noteworthy happens. This is a collection of miscellany pertaining to the recent drama queenery. What a pathetic spectacle: A bunch of 25-year-old men are acting like a bunch of spoiled, attention-whoring 13-year-old girls.

I’m going to take these in roughly sorta-kinda chronological order.

The biggest story of the weekend is from Canton, Ohio, where suddenly — spontaneously — for no apparent reason but plain patriotism, the Pro Football Hall of Fame sprouted 800 American flags.

Heh heh heh heh heh heh.

NFL now the least-liked sport:

Open thread for those still following. TNF down 12 percent, biggest decline to date the late double-header on CBS, which featured the Raiders vs Denver and was down 31 percent from last year.

Over just one month of player, coach, and owner protests of the flag and National Anthem, the National Football League has gone from America’s sport to the least liked of top professional and college sports, according to a new poll. From the end of August to the end of September, the favorable ratings for the NFL have dropped from 57 percent to 44 percent, and it has the highest unfavorable rating – 40 percent – of any big sport.

In a letter to NFL owners, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says:

We believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem.

Ooooooooh! Saw the latest poll and ticket sales numbers, didya, Rog?

A commenter notes,

The NFL numbers must have been horrifically bad to force Goodell to so publicly bend the knee to Trump.

Cratering ticket sales:
http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/nfl-ticket-sales-plummet-179/article/2635955

The National Football League is feeling the impact of the “Trump Effect.”

Ticket sales since he called on team owners to fire players who take a knee to protest the National Anthem have cratered.

The online ticket reseller TickPick told Secrets that sales have dropped 17.9 percent, far more than the usual Week Three fall.

From TickPick:
17.9 percent decrease in NFL orders this week compared to the previous week.
Last year the drop was 10.8 percent in orders on Monday & Tuesday following Week Three games.

17.9/10.8 = 1.657. So in other words, the sales slump is 66% worse than usual.

That’s what happens when you humiliate yourself before black identity extremism.

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21056998/nfl-ratings-75-percent-week-6-2017-compared-2016
First they note that ratings are off by 7.5% compared to the first six weeks of 2016. Further down they note how bad it is compared to two seasons ago: “Compared with the first six weeks of the 2015 season, NFL ratings are off 18.7 percent…”

Oooooh! That’s gotta sting! Then:

In the past week, Credit Suisse lowered its price targets on both Fox and CBS stock, citing NFL ratings declines.

“If ratings don’t improve materially, we see a potential headwind to domestic advertising revenues,” the investment bank’s analyst Omar Sheikh wrote of Fox…

Of course, the NFL would never engage in spinning to deny the problem. Oh, wait:

Last year, the NFL attributed part of its viewership decline during the first nine weeks of the season to competition from presidential election coverage. Viewership was indeed better for the second half of the season, after the election, but it still finished down 8 percent, compared with 2015.

“I’m just as good as you! I’m totally just as good as you!”

At John C. Wright’s blog – why have I never linked to this guy before? – Wright shows an excerpt from a recent Marvel comic in which a “bad guy” fights the new, pointlessly female “Thor.”
http://www.scifiwright.com/2017/09/lady-thor-exhibit-a/#more-19129

The “bad” guy says, with unanswerable common sense, “You wanna be a chick superhero? Fine, who the hell cares? But get your own identity.”

To which the female “Thor” responds with, among other things, “Thor is Thor.” Leftists: They lie even when they utter tautologies. Thor is indeed Thor, bitch, and that ain’t you.

She rambles on for a bit, then punches the guy in the jaw, while saying some blather about feminism.

Obviously, this whole white man replacement thing really constitutes the SJWs screaming, “NO! It’s not enough to have a female superhero! It must be a female superhero who shoves aside a male superhero! She must appropriate a man’s identity!”

Thus giving away the game that it’s all about hate. Not the fake accusation of “hate” that the Left always lobs at people who dare to disagree with them, but actual hate.

Of course, the so-called “bad guy” is totally right. Why not just have a heroine? Why does it have to be replacing a hero? It is the equivalent of the scene in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in which Edmund draws spectacles and a moustache on the statue of a lion.

It’s defacement for the sake of defacement. It’s symbolically spitting on people the SJWs hate and fear, because, I guess, they think it will make them feel better. It’s astounding how much space white men take up in the heads of the Left. You don’t constantly protest, “I’m just a good as you! If not better!” against someone unless you’re constantly tortured by the feeling that you’re not as good as them.

Predictably, this never works in assuaging the feelings of inferiority, which is a reason that SJWs are never content, even when they win.

Leftists Fear a Certain Phrase

BLACK IDENTITY EXTREMISM.

So we should start using it a lot.

iSteve with an analysis:
http://www.unz.com/isteve/nyt-is-spitting-mad-that-trumps-fbi-understands-sapir-whorf/

Steve quotes a frightened attempt at “Don’t believe your lying eyes!” by one Andrew Rosenthal at the Carlos Slim blog (formerly known as the New York Times; no, I’m not going to link it):

The next time there is an act of violence by an African-American against police officers, brace yourself for the right-wing media or the attorney general or the tweeter in chief to seize on the phrase “black identity extremists.”

Er, yes. Because killing someone at random just because of the color of his skin is extremism, to put it mildly.

Also, I love that “The next time there is an act of violence by an African-American against police officers…” That acknowledges that this is a common thing that is going to happen again. Thus Rosenthal feels a need to try to get out ahead and pre-empt discussion of it.

In summary, remember: Leftists fear the phrase

Black identity extremism

so be sure to use it whenever applicable.

NFL: The Circus Continues

A few days ago I posted what I said would be my next-to-last post on the NFL spectacle, unless something else interesting happened. Well, guess what? Something else interesting happened! So this will be my next-to-last post, barring further idiocy. (Of course, that “barring further idiocy” could keep me posting on this for the next eon.)

More NFL goodness, a.k.a., the circus continues:

Hopeless idiot Colin Krapohead, or whatever his name is, is filing a grievance against the NFL because no one will hire him. Er, what’s the grievance? Who, exactly, is guilty of what? The word being used is “collusion,” as in, “Coaches are colluding against me!” The statement from Krapohead’s lawyer is “Trump sux! Legacy of slavery!” Yeah, seriously.

The “Trump sux” part: “athletes should not be denied employment based on partisan political provocation by the Executive Branch of our government.” Jesus. It really is unbelievable how brazen the left is.

First of all, Krapohead is not unemployed because of Trump; he’s unemployed because he’s a crappy quarterback – he went 1-10 in his most recent season, yikes! – who will be a PR nightmare for any team that hires him.

Secondly, he was unemployed months before Trump called out the NFL for coddling these privileged little drama queens. Latest SJW narrative: Trump has a time machine! Fuck, but these people are desperate.

Thirdly, to turn a football game into a political event, as Krapohead did when he protested the anthem, and then whine that the President is engaging in politics, is vomit-inducingly hypocritical. God, but SJWs are such sick, sub-human little fucks. No normal human being could manage that level of hypocrisy. It’s like the old joke about the guy who murders his parents, then begs the judge for leniency on the grounds that he’s an orphan. The sheer brazen assholery and hypocrisy of these people just defies belief.

But it gets worse: His lawyer actually said this: “If the NFL (as well as all professional sports leagues) is to remain a meritocracy, then…” FUCK! Krapohead’s the one who made it about politics, not on-field performance, asshole! Now he’s saying that it should be a meritocracy, that is, only about how well he plays! Fucking fuck!!! It practically overloads the mind’s ability to grasp this level of shamelessness! I’m gonna blow a circuit. The whole sentence, omitting an aside about the owners, is: “If the NFL (as well as all professional sports leagues) is to remain a meritocracy, then principled and peaceful political protest… should not be punished.” In other words, “It should be solely about performance, so you should let my client make it about something other than performance.” Un. Fucking. Believable.

Of course, it’s also deeply amusing that a guy with a record of 1-10 would dare to talk about meritocracy in the first place.

BONUS: Krapohead wasn’t cut loose from the SF 49ers. He walked away from his contract with them last year, LOL!

I suspect his lawyer, one Mark Geragos, is thinking, “Well, I’ll take this moron’s money if he wants.”

There’s a legal analysis by Michael McCann at msn.com in the last day or two. (No link, sorry. The Internet is your friend.) Summary: It is, of course, hopeless for the dickhead.

All this makes one think of H. L. Mencken, that man who loved the spectacle of morons being moronic in public. He should be around these days. He’d flense these fucking idiots until they screamed.

Postscriptum: Stats about the imbecile.

From Wikipedia (I’d link to Infogalactic but their stats on him aren’t up to date):

“In 2015, Kaepernick… finished the season with 1,615 yards passing, six passing touchdowns, five interceptions and 256 rushing yards with one rushing touchdown.”

Holy shizznit, seriously? Only one more passing touchdown than interception? Why the fuck is anyone even talking about this guy? Even if you count his rushing touchdown, the story is, “Hire Colin Kaepernick! He’ll get you 7 touchdowns and 5 interceptions!” LOL. Give up, you pathetic loser.

From the useful site https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/K/KaepCo00.htm, his career regular-season record was 28-30, so he’s a proven NON-winner. But the career record masks the deterioration over time: In the 2014 season his record was 8-8. In the 2015 season, it was 2-6. In 2016… wait for it… 1-10.

Ugh. Untouchable. In his three most recent years, he’s 11-24. So his winning percentage is 11/(11+24) = 31.4%. He’s won less than a third of his games! And his most recent year, less than a tenth of them! Hire Colin Krapohead, and YOU can have the privilege of a quarterback who wins 1/11 = nine percent of his games. And he’s saying coaches don’t want to hire him because politics or racism or whatever. Unreal. The delusionality is strong in this one.

Bye, Krapohead. It was not nice knowing you.

Congressional Democrats Explicitly Call For Censorship

Eugene Volokh has an extended quote from a letter by two House Democrats, Bonnie Watson Coleman and Emanuel Cleaver, to Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter:

************ Quote from the letter begins ************

We are disturbed by the ease in which foreign actors were able to manipulate your platform to advance anti-American sentiments that both exacerbates [sic] racial tension and ultimately threatens our democracy. More importantly, we are disappointed by the silence from you and others in your industry on ways to counter such blatant manipulation of this medium to build racial animosity, the consequences of which are quite literally life threatening.

As federal representatives for the men and women most harshly affected by the consequences of your irresponsibility, we urge you to clearly outline: 1) what efforts you have made to detect these accounts and actions you have employed to eliminate racially divisive communications from your networks, 2) what security features you have in place to prevent foreign entities from meddling in our election process, 3) and what reporting process you have to inform the government and the public on the number, nature and impact of these problematic accounts.

Additionally, we are concerned that insufficient government oversight over your firm is inadvertently leading to deeper racial divisions and threats to our democracy. If Twitter continues to prove unable or hesitant to grasp the seriousness of this threat and combat the racialized climate that is being stimulated on your platforms, we, as Members of Congress, will be left with little option but to demand for increased regulations and government oversight of this industry to address these problems.

************ Quote ends ************

You gotta love the assertion that Twitter’s Orwellian “Trust and Safety Council” doesn’t have enough leftists doing censorship. God, leftists are brazen. You also gotta love the spectacle of Democrats suddenly feigning concern about people expressing “anti-American sentiments.”

Anyway, if I were Dorsey I’d respond by posting an open letter on Twitter that says,

Look, I understand that you’re worried about your political futures and feeling a need to play to your base. But by calling for censorship, you’re openly admitting that your base is people who like censorship. This is an astonishing misstep on your part, but thank you for making it.

Foreigners speaking is not “meddling in our election process.” But thank you for that, too… because you have now publicly conceded that foreigners interfering in US elections is a bad thing. Did you mean to concede that?

Since you are, or pretend to be, concerned about that, how about implementing tough measures to prevent non-citizens from voting in US elections – which really is foreigners meddling in our election process.

I’ll think about restricting foreigners’ speech… after you and other Democrats call for, and successfully implement, measures to stop foreigners from actually voting in our elections.

I’m Done with the NFL

Bye, drama queens.

You spit on my country, and then when the President taps you on the shoulder and says “That’s out of line,” you double down. So this is what you’ve revealed to me: You not only hate my country – which would be enough for me to tell you to fuck off – hating it is important enough to you to double down over it.

Fuck you.

Goodbye.
