I stayed offline for a few hours to get some writing done. I’ll have to do that every night – the temptation to procrastinate is too huge!
So I took a quick look at Twitter after writing time. The big news is that the Sun newspaper has caved in to the feminists and stopped printing pictures of topless women on page 3.
I’d never have known that if not for Twitter because I have never bought the Sun and never intend to. So I have missed my chance to be offended.
Old Holborn stated that the feminists would not stop with page 3, and…
Laurie Penny has declared that now that page 3 is gone, they have to ban pages 1-39 too. Yes, that’s what she said. As someone else (edit- I remember now, it was Mr. Eugenides) tweeted, she thinks newspapers can have an odd number of pages. Not in this dimension, Laurie, maybe in yours.
Why ban the rest of the newspaper? I don’t like it so I don’t buy it. It’s hardly rocket science. Besides, the rest of it is probably like all the other tabloids. Full of images of sneering benefit-fed harpies who do more to suppress the male sexual urge than a grand piano dropped from three stories up onto a point directly between splayed legs. Surely even the bad Penny would approve?
These feminists are all part of the Righteous and they never stop. Like the antismokers and antidrinkers and poverty campaigners and all the rest they never, ever stop. There is no end point to their plan. Give in to them on one point and they just move on to the next. There’s only one answer.
Don’t give in. On any point. Ever.
Look at Action on Salt and Health. They were getting nowhere with their little crusade so what did they do? Eventually they gave up and became Action on Sugar and Health. They picked a different target to hate.
These are people who want control. Not any specific control, just control for the sake of it. They don’t really want any of the things they say they want. What they want – all they want – is to watch people doing what they tell them to do.
So when people do what they are told, the immediate reaction from the Righteous is to tell them to do something else. If they do that, they get new orders. There is no end to it. There was never intended to be any end to it. These people do not care about the ‘issues’ they ramble on about. All they care about is controlling other people.
If you cannot be controlled they move on. If you accept their first controls, there will be more. And more, and more and more.
You have one life. Do you really want to live it according to some control freak’s instructions? Learn one word and learn to say it loud.
Of course, the problem is that the most malleable and gullible idiots have found their way into Parliament and they are happy to let someone else tell them what to do. So the nonsense becomes law. It’s a control freak’s dream.
Everyone else’s nightmare.
Anyway, I’ll have another quick look at Twitter and then back to writing. I can get a couple more hours in tonight.
