So, finally getting around to this story with respect to sexism and religious freedom/accommodation. It seems that several plane flights have been delayed thanks to Orthodox Jews who insist on not sitting next to woman. See this story and the links within it: https://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com/2015/05/01/jews-on-a-plane-a-readers-take/ I particularly like the video in that story although I am sure we have all seen it by now. Anyway, just curious as to people's thoughts on this. ---- Ok, got the poll to work now. I say to hell with the Orthodox religious nut jobs.... women before wacko ideas about sitting next to women.
I found this immensely funny, but other people probably won't understand the full context. Apparently, the Social Justice Warrior (SJW) infiltration of the mainstream media has gotten to the point where the BBC has now achieved Poe's Law. Poe's Law: "Without a clear indication of the author's intent, it is difficult or impossible to tell the difference between an expression of sincere extremism and a parody of extremism [by other extremists]." http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Poe%27s_Law So I'll give some context, an 20 year old British male from York by the name of Godfrey Elfwick created a parody twitter account of Social Justice Warriors. https://twitter.com/godfreyelfwick Godfrey's twitter profile describes Godfrey as a "Demisexual genderqueer Muslim Atheist. Literal good guy. Itinerant jongleur. Pronouns are Xir, Xirs Xirself. Filters life through the lens of minority issues." If that isn't obvious enough of a parody, I'll list some of the tweets by Godfrey: "Don't want to be labelled a rapist? Then respect women's boundaries and remember that consent can be revoked at any time. Even after sex." "Remember #FreeSpeech and #HateSpeech are synonymous. Your right to offend stops at my right to not be offended." "It's a sad fact that as a trans-black person I suffer worse bigotry and abuse than most other black people. #Racism #WrongSkin" "I used to identify as #atheist as I don't believe in God but when I saw how racist the movement has become I converted to moderate Islam." "I was born white but realized later in life that I was #WrongSkin and transitioned mentally to black." "I have #HIV and I still donate blood. If people are too bigoted to accept it then they shouldn't have lost so much in the first place." "Universities should be places where the correct topics are discussed with the correct people in the correct environment. #Feminism" "If you're a straight man and you don't find #BruceJenner sexually attractive since he became a woman you're transphobic" "Men will be men. Thank god I'm a transwoman so it doesn't apply to me." Anyway, the BBC's Angela Sheeran saw one of Godfrey's tweets: "I've never actually seen #StarWars but the fact that the bad guy was all black and ate watermelons was unbelievably racist even for the 70's" And believing that Godfrey is a SJW with the 'correct opinion' (and unable to distinguish between parody and a true believe of SJWism), she invites him (or should I say xir?) onto her show to discuss the recent star wars trailer. Here is a brief clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EabGCJ9rm4w The full 'interview' is 8 minutes long and includes Angela Sheeran rambling on about how Frozen is sexist, terrifying and treats women as sex objects.
