These women and others don’t want you to call them ‘plus-size’


Fair enough; but, except for the skinnier (yet big-bootied and big-legged) one on the left, I also won’t call them ‘curvy’ or ‘voluptuous’, as I would, say, Sophia Loren in her prime.

There are only five possible accurate descriptive words for them (again, except for the skinnier one on the left).

Two are descriptive relative to average body sizes: ‘big’ or ‘large’. These are very mild, gentle terms.

Two other terms are ‘overweight’ or ‘obese’, which are medical / scientific terms, devoid of moral judgment, purely based on body mass index and health / physical fitness considerations.

You know the other term; we all do, as do they, though they don’t want to admit it to themselves or others. :)

One can’t escape human nature, as much as progs would like to in some cases (while not in others).

Men will find attractive what they find attractive, and find unattractive what they find unattractive, and men and women alike will judge both men and women on their weight.

And regardless of what term one uses, fat is fat.

Period.

‘Nuff said.

They can’t experience manly pride, so neither can men…

Will S.:

The same event happened in Toronto a few years back, among civilians; I wrote a post about it at the time, here.

When I first saw the story making the rounds about ROTC cadets being forced to march in women’s shoes I thought it was a hoax.  But I see that the Washington Times has picked up the story and has a photo from a similar march at a different university showing ROTC men marching in uniform wearing red high heels.  The caption under the picture reads:

ROTC cadets participate in a “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” event held at Temple University on April 1, 2015.

While the date of the Temple photo is (suspiciously) April first, the date of the Times article is April 21st.  The Temple march also shows up on April first on the event calendar for the organization, so the photo appears to be legitimate (although perhaps somewhat misleading).  As the Times mentions this isn’t a new event for the Army, and I was able to find…

Sweden’s huge pop music influence is indirectly due to the influence of cultural conservatives

Interesting…

For a country of 35 million, Canada punches far above its weight when it comes to exporting its music to the rest of the world. But then there’s Sweden. With fewer than 10 million people, the country is a musical monster.

There’s the unending parade of cool indie artists: Lykke Li, Tove Lo, Peter, Bjorn & John, The Sounds, The Radio Dept., The Shout Out Louds, The Hives. And let’s not even start on Sweden’s role in metal. Or that Sweden is the birthplace of Spotify.

Sweden gave birth to ABBA, a group that has sold nearly 400 million albums, second only to the Beatles. It’s also the home of Max Martin, the producer/songwriter who crafted megahits for the Backstreet Boys, ’N Sync, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, P!nk and Taylor Swift. He’s produced more No. 1 hits than anyone except George Martin — and he had the Beatles.

He didn’t even mention bands like Ace of Base and the Cardigans from the ’90s, or Icona Pop from a few years back, with that annoying song about a vengeful ex-girlfriend discarding her ex-boyfriend’s belongings, and stupidly driving her car into the river, celebrating vindictive, feral female sensibilities…

So how did this sparsely populated northern European country become such a global powerhouse?

A good question. His answer is most interesting, and instructive:

The answer starts with the 1940s, when cultural conservatives and church leaders banded together to protect the country’s youth from the “dance-floor misery” of degenerate music coming from America. They set up a system of music schools — no tuition, free use of instruments — to show the young how morally uplifting classical music could be.

By the 1960s, the system diversified into other genres of music. While this diluted the original intent of streaming the young into the classical realm, it offered kids more and more opportunity to discover what musical talents they had.

Coupled with government subsidies for rehearsal space (and sometime for just rehearsing), a network of musically inclined people took root across the country. Ideas were exchanged quickly and efficiently. Tightly knit musical communities were created.

This sort of support and social networking brought the people in ABBA together. And when they hit it big, there was a sense across the country that if they could do it, anyone could. Since then, there’s been a real can-do spirit amongst the musically inclined in Sweden. Now the country exports more than $150 million US in music sales to the rest of the planet, the largest per-capita in the world.

It was a social engineering experiment gone wrong, but things have worked out just fine.

Well, I beg to differ that it’s been ‘just fine’, i.e. a positive thing, overall; I’d gladly do without many of the aforementioned Swedish bands AND the American ones for whom Swede Max Martin penned several hits, apparently.

But it is instructive for us reactionaries.

Recall O’Sullivan’s First Law: “All organizations that are not actually right-wing will over time become left-wing.”

(This is actually a restatement of what many call Robert Conquest’s Second Law of Politics.)

However, being conservative is not enough – as we see with the example of Sweden and popular music. (Perhaps because of Robert Conquest’s Third Law of Politics: “The simplest way to explain the behavior of any bureaucratic organization is to assume that it is controlled by a cabal of its enemies.” Which appears to be what happened, eventually if not initially, in Sweden, with their state-funded classical music schools.)

Perhaps we need a new maxim; if someone else hasn’t already come up with it, Will S.’ First Law of Politics:

Any organization or institution not explicitly reactionary from the get-go, will over time become progressive.

Feminist trying to remove stigma of STIs

There is a stigma for a reason. (Birth defects and miscarriage).

It’s terrible you weren’t told by the presumably random man who gave it to you, it’s awful wearing protection didn’t stop it, but if you choose to have casual sex – it happens. I’d feel sorry for you if you got it from your husband, though. Because again, it’s female fertility that suffers.

CBS4 Investigation: TSA Screeners At DIA Manipulated System To Grope Men’s Genitals « CBS Denver

CBS4 Investigation: TSA Screeners At DIA Manipulated System To Grope Men’s Genitals « CBS Denver.

DENVER (CBS4) – A CBS4 investigation has learned that two Transportation Security Administration screeners at Denver International Airport have been fired after they were discovered manipulating passenger screening systems to allow a male TSA employee to fondle the genital areas of attractive male passengers.

It happened roughly a dozen times, according to information gathered by CBS4.

According to law enforcement reports obtained during the CBS4 investigation, a male TSA screener told a female colleague in 2014 that he “gropes” male passengers who come through the screening area at DIA.

“He related that when a male he finds attractive comes to be screened by the scanning machine he will alert another TSA screener to indicate to the scanning computer that the party being screened is a female. When the screener does this, the scanning machine will indicate an anomaly in the genital area and this allows (the male TSA screener) to conduct a pat-down search of that area.”

Although the TSA learned of the accusation on Nov. 18, 2014 via an anonymous tip from one of the agency’s own employees, reports show that it would be nearly three months before anything was done.

On Feb. 9 TSA security supervisor Chris Higgins watched the screening area, observing the employees. “At about 0925 he observed (the male TSA screener) appear to give a signal to another screener … (the second female screener) was responsible for the touchscreen system that controls whether or not the scanning machine alerts to gender- specific anomalies, according to a law enforcement report obtained by CBS4.

According to the report, the TSA investigator then watched a male passenger enter the scanner at DIA “and observed (the female TSA agent) press the screening button for a female. The scanner alerted to an anomaly, and Higgins observed (the male TSA screener) conduct a pat down of the passenger’s front groin and buttocks area with the palm of his hands, which is contradictory to TSA searching policy.”

Higgins later interviewed the female TSA agent who was an accomplice in the groping conspiracy. She “admitted that she has done this for (the male TSA officer) at least 10 other times. She knew that doing so would allow (the male TSA officer) to perform a pat down on a male passenger that (the male TSA screener) found attractive,” reported Higgins.
