What is wrong with the British Broadcasting Corporation?
The Three Monkeys are directing it.
They make sure that viewers are groomed to think correctly.
They make sure that viewers are groomed to behave correctly.
They make sure that we understand how beneficial all inclusivity is by fullfilling their quotas for gay, female, disabled, black, non smoking and other politically correct groups, in all their presentations, yet they do not include views other than theirs in their inclusivity.
They do this because they think they are right.
They do this because they believe the BBC can groom us into right thinking, right living and right action.
The BBC is a right-speak example to us all.
I was unfortunate enough to watch the Charles 1 three part series. The whole time I squirmed at the patronising presentation by a female historian with creepy blue eyes and the pretty unsubtle likening of the period of History to our own time. I got the message from it that Nigel Farage was Pym playing with fire in toppling our EU membership. It was propaganda disguised.
Yes, the Three Monkeys are alive and well, and they live at the BBC.
There is really something rotten going on…. here’s the video that explains the legal situation from the man himself.
The fact that I am unable to share this with my readers, except in the most round about way that has been constructed to constrain MY freedom, shows that we are all Tommy Robinson, gradually being shut down by censorship.
I have managed to put a link to the video here. Please take time to view it.
In the United Kingdom, we have The Doomsday Book that is written in two massive volumes that have been stored safely for almost a thousand years. It is the Registery of all landowners and place names in England when we were conquered by the French.
All over Europe there are records of meticulous kinds, written records, that capture the history of the western world. The same history that is now tossed aside as the history of White Privilege, rather than the attempt to capture knowledge for all future generations.
Written records are the safest way information can be stored, even in this age of the etherial-seeming computer technology.
Writing ON things, like paper, buildings, papyrus, plaques, monuments, even clay tablets, has been proved to last.
In the eighties, the United Kingdom, planned to make a new Doomsday Book. A massive amount of information was collected; the citizens of the nation co-operated with huge enthusiasm and all the records were digitilised. Most of it is lost now because the computers used to capture it all, are obsolete.
Trying to preserve knowledge the way we do now digitally, is dangerous indeed. It might never be retrievable. And clouds can simply puff away in the winds of change.
We are haemmoraging knowledge.
The Internet is an unstable place to try and store our knowledge and the internet is being more and more heavily censored, “disappearing” valuable information in the arrogance of those who control it.
Humbling to Social Justice Warriors and others believing in their own importance, is that fact that whatever they tweet into the Twitter Swamp, will thankfully be lost for the next generation as we enter the ethereal age of thoughts that simply get lost in space and time!
I think this was a really good opening speech by Ta-Nehisi Coates at the slavery reparations hearings in the USA.
I point out that white/European people were enslaved in much greater numbers in world history than black people ever were. The difference is that those slaves simply disappeared into the populations of the nations that enslaved them. They never became a “group” in those countries.
The Wests’ use of captured humans sold to them by African traders for profit and greed has been a different thing completely.
I thought this an excellent speech. What do you think?
Or do you think paying reparations for white and black actions in a different time and place in history is a dangerous precedent?
How are reparations paid? To whom? By whom? It will be interesting to see where this goes……
Here is an LBGTIQ interview about the situation for transgender people in South Africa that I enjoyed.
LBGTIQ in Africa have much more serious problems, than in the USA or Europe.
The LBGTIQ community is a very small percentage of any population. In much of Africa, the culture is one of no acceptance, punishment and death.
I was interested to hear how things stand in South Africa. Their problems are not one of being accepted legally in their country, but how the majority of (straight) people treat them.
Toilets always come up. Why on earth cant we just have toilets that simply say “Toilet” on the door? “Ladies” and “Gents”, to me, seem an artefact of Victorian prudery.
The topic of pronouns always come up. Well the gay community have done that to themselves. It is daunting for straight people to employ them, and have to walk on eggs, careful not to offend. Straight people are the majority of the population, I point out. The majority. So the majority of people find themselves in an awkward place, put there, by a small minority.
It is vital that we do not minimize or downplay how complex LGBTQ+ issues are, or imply that navigating them is simple in any way. They aren’t: most of our population has never been questioned or judged based on their sexualities or the fact that their physical and personal traits do not abide by traditional male or female stereotypes. Most people have not had to lie to themselves and others around them about who they are in regards to their gender, anatomy, and sexuality. These are tragic experiences that no one should have to cope with, and we are actively working to decrease the stigma surrounding the wonderfully diverse LGBTQ+ community. It is everyone’s responsibility to normalize being gay, lesbian, transgender, transsexual, questioning, and anyone who falls on the spectrum of not identifying with traditional male and female roles, genders, and sexual preferences.
- Ally: those who consider themselves supportive friends to the LGBTQ+ community.
- Lesbian: a female who is romantically or sexually attracted to other females.
- Gay: a male who is romantically or sexually attracted to other males. Often used as an umbrella term to describe all homosexuals (individuals who are attracted to those of their same gender).
- Bisexual: individuals who are romantically or sexually attracted to both male and female genders.
- Transgender: a general term that refers to individuals who self-identify as a different gender than the one they were medically assigned at birth.
- Cisgender: an individual whose biological sex at birth corresponds with their gender identity
- Gender non-binary: umbrella term that encompasses all gender identities that do not correspond to traditional male or female profiles.
- Transsexual: these are transgender individuals who desire to medically transition from one sex to another (or already have).
- Two-spirit: general term typically utilized by Indigenous populations to denote someone who embodies aspects of both traditional male and female genders; they are said to have two spirits within them.
- Queer: general term for non-majority, non-heterosexual, or non-cisgendered individuals. This used to be considered a derogatory term, however the LGBTQ+ community has recently been re-introducing it in a more positive light.
- Questioning: any individual who is currently unsure about the applicability of specific societal labels regarding their sexual orientation, gender or sexual identity.
- Intersex: an individual whose sexual anatomy is not entirely male or female.
- Asexual: individuals who identify as having little to zero sexual attraction to anyone, of any gender or combination thereof.
- Pansexual: individuals who are sexually, romantically, or emotionally attracted to individuals regardless of their gender or sexual identity. Sometimes pansexual individuals will refer to themselves to as gender-blind, and assert that gender or sexual characteristics do not influence their attraction to another person.
- Agender: individuals who do not self-identify with a particular gender.
- Gender Queer: general term for individuals whose gender identities are not exclusively male or female.
- Bigender: individuals who self-identify as having aspects and characteristics both genders, either at the same or different time points. They may express that they are both masculine and feminine at the same time, or that they alternate between the two.
- Gender Variant: gender expression that defies stereotypical male and female gender norms.
- Pangender: those who self-identify as embodying all genders.
Recently I have read there are suggestions S should be added to the list of gender types.
S, for the majority of people. There is a Straight Pride march in Boston this year, in this month of Pride. I don’t know how I feel about that. My intuition tells me it’s more about taunting the Pride movement than celebrating “Straightness”.
I think the LBGTQI +++ community have a lot of troubles within their own communities and are tearing themselves apart already. That’s a real pity. I think us Straight people should butt out until they get themselves sorted.
We complain they are always in our faces, but WE, the system of the majority, are continually in theirs. The quicker we can get over the hump of toilets, pronouns, driver’s licences, passports, birth certificates, education in schools, quotas, labels and minisculi, the quicker we all will simply become just a bunch of people getting on with living our lives.
Its time we found a better system. Until then, it’s growing pains all round.
I feel sorry for us all.
I’ve cogitated on your email talking about future war as you see it from your place in Africa.
In the society we are watching developing here in the UK, the war that is coming is already here, and has been for a while. It’s a war on how people think. Our technology has opened up an easy way to infuse people’s brains with right-think to quote Orwell. Every movie, every TV series, every news report dishes up right-think. At last the masses can be sculpted by the elite to believe the correct beliefs. There’s no need to purge Academia like Mao did, nor send them to gulags. Theres no need to even have political parties once you have got the masses all thinking RIGHT-THINK.
The young people of this generation will automatically become good subservient citizens, who will further right thinking to their children and teach and educate others through the education they are receiving now.. I’m talking about the West. We’ll all be green yet multicoloured, multigendered vegans, bicycling around under our flight-free skies, reading loving messages on Twitter and Facebook, whose emotions are never challenged by any ugly ideas, or the sound of clapping, whose lythe bodies are never sullied by smoking, vaping or sugar and who believe the next James Bond should be a black, transgender, vegan, Downs Syndrome actor.
We are afraid nowadays to be proud of our countries. We are encouraged to welcome multiculturism, immigration, inclusion. We are made ashamed to reveal our feelings of national pride in case we are labelled hate speakers, fascists, racists, white supremacists, and God knows what else…..
But here is a view on nations – how feelings of national pride can be a good thing, necessary even, for our future.
It’s very worth watching! Enjoy.
I am saddened to say, that once, I was a Theresa May supporter.
What she has done, is to muck about for three years, being obsequious to the European Union and saying “yes sir” and trying to pass THEIR deal onto our country through our Parliament. She has become the handmaiden of the EU.
No wonder Parliament is seething with malcontent.
And she is going to try to pass the same damn deal AGAIN. (If she lasts the night.)
I think the country has had enough of three years of indecision. We are sick of watching our politicians battling away day after day, week after week, year after year, and getting nowhere under a stubborn Prime Minister and openly hostile Remainers determined to screw Brexit up any way they can.
Now, Remainers have resorted to chucking milkshakes onto Pro Brexit politicians in our country.
I think we could return the favour by voting for ANY pro brexit party tomorrow, the 23rd May in the EU election.
Your vote is a return milkshake! VOTE!
Time for education! Blow your mind….
A woman who is primarily attracted to other women.
A person who is attracted primarily to members of the same sex. Although it can be used for any sex (e.g. gay man, gay woman, gay person), “lesbian” is sometimes the preferred term for women who are attracted to women.
A term which refers to individuals or groups who “queer” or problematize the hegemonic notions of sex, gender and desire in a given society. Genderqueer people possess identities which fall outside of the widely accepted sexual binary (i.e. “men” and “women”). Genderqueer may also refer to people who identify as both transgendered AND queer, i.e. individuals who challenge both gender and sexuality regimes and see gender identity and sexual orientation as overlapping and interconnected.
A person who is attracted to both people of their own gender and another gender. Also called “bi”.
A person who is sexually attracted to people only after a strong emotional bond has been formed.
This term has many definitions. It is frequently used as an umbrella term to refer to all people who do not identify with their assigned gender at birth or the binary gender system. This includes transsexuals, cross-dressers, genderqueer, drag kings, drag queens, two-spirit people, and others. Some transgender people feel they exist not within one of the two standard gender categories, but rather somewhere between, beyond, or outside of those two genders.
A person whose gender identity is different from their biological sex, who may undergo medical treatments to change their biological sex, often times to align it with their gender identity, or they may live their lives as another sex.
A person who adopts some combination of male and female gender identity, dress, and social roles, or who identifies as gay, lesbian, transgender, etc.
A person whose sexual anatomy or chromosomes do not fit with the traditional markers of “female” and “male.” For example: people born with both “female” and “male” anatomy (penis, testicles, vagina, uterus); people born with XXY.
1) An umbrella term sometimes used by LGBTQA people to refer to the entire LGBT community. 2) An alternative that some people use to “queer” the idea of the labels and categories such as lesbian, gay, bisexual, etc. Similar to the concept of genderqueer. It is important to note that the word queer is an in-group term, and a word that can be considered offensive to some people, depending on their generation, geographic location, and relationship with the word.
For some, the process of exploring and discovering one’s own sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.
A person who generally does not feel sexual attraction or desire to any group of people. Asexuality is not the same as celibacy.
Typically any non-LGBT persons who supports and stands up for the rights of LGBT people, though LGBT people can be allies, such as a lesbian who is an ally to a transgender person.
A person who experiences sexual, romantic, physical, and/or spiritual attraction for members of all gender identities/expressions, not just people who fit into the standard gender binary (i.e. men and women).
A person who participates simultaneously in more than one serious romantic or sexual relationship with the knowledge and consent of all partners.
