Maxine Waters held a rally today that featured US flag burning and signs printed by Communist groups. But Trump is the traitor!

You have to be seriously brain-dead to think the threat to the USA is from Trump.

From Ireland:
Gender Equality in Practice in Irish Theatre

On the 9th July 2018 at The Lir National Academy of Dramatic Arts at Trinity College, Dublin, Minister of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht Josepha Madigan TD launched Gender Equality in Practice in Irish Theatre; the gender equality policies of The Abbey Theatre, Cork Midsummer Festival, The Corn Exchange, Druid Theatre, The Everyman, Dublin Theatre Festival, Fishamble: The New Play Company, The Gate Theatre, The Lir Academy, Rough Magic Theatre Company.

The 10 theatre companies involved in the working group have come together to demonstrate the power of collaboration within the Cultural sector in Ireland, to share expertise, support and learnings and enhance the possibilities for women in the Irish theatre sector. It is vital that women’s voices are allowed to reverberate on stage, across the cultural sector and across society as a whole.
[big snip]
While every organisation involved in the process have tailored a policy statement specific to the individual needs of each organisation some of the measures adopted include
  • 1. Gender blind readings for plays
  • 2. Unconscious bias training for all staff
  • 3. Achieve equality of gender of board members
  • 4. 50% of a new play commissions to be allocated to women writers
  • 5. Gender blind casting
  • 6. Addition of Dignity at Work clauses to employees charter
  • 7. Re-examination of the female canon
  • 8. Work with third level institution to encourage gender parity in areas that do not reflect equality of gender.
  • 9. To achieve gender balance in programming within a 5year period.
http://www.thelir.ie/news/view/gender-e ... sh-theatre

"Gender blind casting", wow! (Romeo & Juliet?) Only Postmodern plays from now on?


This being said: a black lady I know (vaguely) studied theater for ~ 2 years, and not one of the cunts who taught her warned her that with that skin color job prospects were grim. Which she noticed when trying to get a role, and finally changed orientation.
So there is certainly room for improvement.

It's weird as she mostly writes about local eateries:
Jessi Cape is a native Texan and dedicated bibliophile who writes primarily about food, film, and books. Her focus is often sustainability, women and children, and literacy.
https://www.austinchronicle.com/authors/jessi-cape/ (List of her articles.)

Perhaps she knows people at Juiceland and wanted to step in?

The contentious article (https://www.austinchronicle.com/daily/f ... -comedian/), filed under "food", seems to have been amended, judging from what is discussed in the video – without mention of that save for a short "update" at the end.
Haven't seen the video (at work) but what is this exactly? This Crowder guy flies to another state with a film crew to confront some minimum-wage loser at a fast food place and unleash an internet mob to doxx them and harass them? Even if they did post threats, the reaction seems over-the-top for someone who is essentially a nobody.
We have yet to obtain the original posts, and the employee’s social media accounts appear to be deleted. From what we can gather online, the following is the basic rundown.

Steven Crowder and his camera crew flew to Austin, with a poster-sized copy of the comments and the alleged commenter’s photos, and went to the JuiceLand MLK store to confront the individual. A seven minute YouTube video entitled “CROWDER CONFRONTS: Tire Slash Transgender!” was posted on July 10 by the Louder With Crowder account, and at the time of the posting of this article, it has been viewed more than 734,000 times. We are intentionally not embedding or linking to the video.

If that movie ever gets off the ground, which I doubt, what I suspect they will do is cast an actress who looks like her diet consists of TWO crackers a day, rather than one, and make everyone around her pretend she is monstrously huge.

It would be better if she only becomes plus sized when she says Shazam or something.

Her secret identity is skinny. :BigGrin3:



BTW, there was at least one comic book plus sized woman superhero. Who remembers Little Lotta?

Far from being the "unpopular fat kid" stereotype represented in other popular media (such as her contemporary Tubby in Little Lulu) Lotta was depicted as friendly, kind-hearted and always ready to use her tremendous strength for what she deemed as good. ... Little Lotta always maintains a positive attitude about herself despite her obesity.

Blackness as Disability?

Georgetown Law Journal, Vol. 106, No. 293, 2018
Fordham Law Legal Studies Research Paper No. 3107289
73 Pages Posted: 23 Jan 2018 Last revised: 3 Feb 2018

Kimani Paul-Emile
Fordham University School of Law
Date Written: January 22, 2018

Abstract

Recent incidents of police violence against unarmed African-Americans and the lead-filled water of Flint, Michigan are only the most recent reminders of what it means to live as a black person today in the United States. Being black increases the odds of living in poverty, attending failing schools, experiencing housing discrimination, being denied a job interview, being stopped by the police, receiving inferior medical care, living in substandard conditions and polluted environments, being unemployed, receiving longer prison sentences, and, ultimately, having a lower life expectancy. Although we do not think of being black in the United States as disabling, this Article argues that it may be appropriate to do so.

As provocative as it might seem, understanding the black racial designation as disabling can bring new clarity to the reality that racial categories in the United States were created explicitly to serve as a caste system to benefit some and disable others. It also opens up an entirely new approach to how the law should attend to race discrimination and structural inequality: disability law.

This Article uses the doctrinal framework and normative commitments of disability law, notably the Americans with Disabilities Act, as an analytical lens for examining race and as a practical means for addressing discrimination and structural inequality. This model fundamentally reframes race jurisprudence in ways that other antidiscrimination laws — such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and equal protection jurisprudence — do not allow. Traditional race jurisprudence focuses on malicious intent and promotes the impractical norm of color- blindness. Disability law, in contrast, does not require a showing of intent and is disability conscious. Indeed, disability law more constructively speaks in the language of reasonable modification and balancing remedial justice against social and economic cost. This legal framework allows for serious engagement with the reality of structural inequality, opening new possibilities for social reform foreclosed by current race jurisprudence, and offers a meaningful legal path to advancing racial equality.

The headline made me think "hmm" but sometimes headlines can be deceiving because they are meant to get you to read the article.

Opinion | The Nuclear Family Threat

If we heed Israeli lawmaker Merav Michaeli’s quest to ‘break apart’ marriage from parenthood and childbirth, we’ll discover that the best solution is to replace straight marriage with gay marriage
Hmmmmm. :notsure:

For some reason it is not behind a paywall for me. It's actually a critique of something an Israeli lawmaker said. A sort of "reductio ad absurdum" by taking what she said to absurd extremes.
“This is not funny,” said MK Merav Michaeli on an Australian TV panel last month, before going on to say: “The core family as we know it, unfortunately, is the least safe place for children.” When she was justifiably attacked in Israel for her irritating remarks, she said in her defense that her words had been taken out of context. This is the pot calling the kettle black: a perfect way of describing Michaeli’s assault on the default choices of human society is to take these choices out of their natural context.

“The data” is what led Michaeli to her conclusions. These are “the data [that] speak about every fifth child that goes to some kind of abuse – sexual, physical, emotional.” One should have seen the astonished faces of the other panel members upon hearing her words. Every normal parent in the world who has not caught the semantic disease afflicting Michaeli and her ilk understands that the “data” she possesses is not worth the paper it’s written on, regardless of its scientific validity.
Michaeli didn’t stop clucking her tongue while her fellow panel members politely defended the family institution, as if she were the journalist in the film “Crocodile Dundee,” surrounded by natives living in sub-standard conditions in the Australian bush, surrounded by crocodiles. She invited them to take an intellectual journey to the future, where she lives – Israel is, as everyone knows, the vanguard of moral progress (the occupation, after all, only corrupts the Border Police, not the feminists of Tel Aviv) – so that they could embrace modern Western hygiene not only in the bathroom unit but also in the family unit.
One needn’t be a genius to see where Michaeli’s logic leads. If we heed her quest to “break apart” the nuclear family so that marriage is broken apart from parenthood and parenthood broken apart from childbirth, we can actually assemble a new default option, an ideal one that bypasses the structural problems of the older default. We’ll then discover that the best way to combat the inherent inequality – one that favors men and that Michaeli identifies as part and parcel of the institution of marriage – is to replace the default option with same-sex marriage, which lacks the inequality that derives from the differences between men and women.

In an ideal egalitarian society men will fraternize with men and women with women. And what about children? “The person who takes responsibility for the child – and someone must take responsibility for the child – needs to be obligated for certain criteria that the state should actually decide on.” The state? “No! What do you mean the state? It’s us coming together in a democracy, we all decide what it means to be a good parent,” explained Michaeli.
(I haven't watched the video so I can't really confirm if this is what she's saying) The idea that perhaps children should be raised collectively by the state rather than each individually by their parents is not a new idea though. Wasn't that the basis of Brave New World?
Subsequently, in the name of progress, perhaps the primitive practice which served our forefathers will also come to an end. Babies will be born under ideal laboratory conditions, and only under state approval. The “biological advantage” of heterosexuals, namely their ability to reproduce, will be considered a violation of the equality principle of homosexuals. After all, how will the state be able to determine whether men or women meet the required standards for becoming parents as long as they are free to become pregnant without a license?

Of course, somehow when we’ll all be “coming together” to determine criteria, the poor will get screwed. They simply won’t be able to afford to meet the standards required for a parenting license. Only last month a story in the New York Times stated that “marriage, which in the past was the default option for creating a family in the United States, regardless of income or education, has become an American way of life restricted only to the most privileged.” This is not funny.
