No frickin’ way am I doing THAT!!
A few weeks ago we had a family skiing/snowboarding trip. While sitting at the top of this, this is how my daughter responded to her brother after he invited her to join him in launching himself of the lip and into the valley below.
They’ve both been on the slopes for the same period of time but my son engages in things that I absolutely will NOT be doing. And certainly nothing my daughter will likely ever consider doing.
Boys, as they say, are different. Not good, not bad. Just different.
It has to do with our biological makeup. Give us boys some baby dolls to play with as kids and we’ll fiddle with them for a bit wondering what on earth they could be useful for, and then we’ll figure it all out and turn them into torpedoes or better yet baseball bats.
We like speed, risk, and physicality. We don’t really understand what “finding holistic wellness” means, though I’m pretty sure we find this ourselves when building stuff or competing. Sorry, it’s just how we’re wired.
And we often don’t give too much thought to what others think which makes us somewhat belligerent while being simultaneously frickin’awesome.
Up until recently we all knew this. We spoke of it openly. We laughed about it and simply realised that yes, boys are different.
Or, if you will, girls are different.
We championed women for their nurturing, loving, and all too often downright sensible attitudes to risk.
Again, we all knew this. We were proud of both. We knew intuitively that we’ve a lot to thank both male and female for. That is until the social justice warriors moved in, determining that no, it’s not biological but a “social construct of the patriarchy.”
Enter SJW Pseudo Education
And this is how it is we find ourselves with what is increasingly a social justice pseudo education run by liberal fascists. Which isn’t education at all but indoctrination.
I thought it bad enough that kids in schools these days are banned from climbing trees… or playing in any way that may actually resemble fun. Some of the best lessons learned by little kids involve getting punched in the nose in the playground after a rough game.
Small wonder we’ve a record number of (mostly) boys at school being diagnosed with ADHD (attention deficit disorder) and being drugged to “fix” it.
In most instances, many of us who grew up in different times would have been diagnosed with this in our childhood. Were we a problem? No more than any other perfectly healthy normal kids testing boundaries.
Often — and I remember this myself — we were just bored, and this even more so if you’re just modestly bright dealing with dullard teachers. Our attention was perfectly fine if we needed to be jumping from a roof to see if we could make it into a pile of leaves without damaging some part of our body. No attention deficit, I assure you.
But this sort of behaviour is now seen as toxic by these do-gooder whackos and must therefore be “fixed”. This is head-scratchingly stupid.
And so the insanity gathers momentum…
According to Bewsey Lodge Primary School’s website, the school teaches “PSHE,” which stands for “Personal, Social, and Health Education.” Under the PSHE umbrella, topics like transgenderism, sexuality, and relationships are discussed. PSHE is taught from nursery age to year 6. Additionally, the school has “non-gender-specific” uniforms.
And in the interests of “diversity” we fall deeper down the well.
Not only are little 6-year-olds being forced to write gay love letters but over on the murky isle, once again, I present you with someone’s idea of “diversity”.
A homework task: write a letter to your family telling them you’re converting to Islam.
Students at Les Beaucamp High School in Guernsey, located in the Channel Islands and supported by the British government, were given a homework assignment requiring them to explain to their parents why they were converting to Islam, and expressing their hope for acceptance.
This comes just a few months after officials learned Islamists were trying to take over several area schools and drive out staffers who weren’t of the Muslim belief.
Then, students were told to sing: “This is their fight, spread Islam now, prove they’re right.”
Can you imagine kids in Saudi Arabia being forced to write a letter about giving up on Islam and converting to Christianity? No, you can’t, can you? Heads would roll. Literally.
In any event, this garbage is being taught to kids in the West, all in the name of “multiculturalism”.

Some points on multiculturalism which I’ve written about previously in “The Virtues of Discrimination”.
There are many things that divide people and race is just the most obvious one simply because we can see it just by looking at one another.
None of this matters much when the value system of folks are similar. This was one thing that America of yesteryear proved so well. It didn’t matter if you were black, Latino, Irish, or Italian.
Nobody cared. They were all Americans with what, I dare say, is the closest this world’s ever come to equality. Notably equality of opportunity… not equality of outcome, which always, always ends with horrendous outcomes.
Unfortunately today observing and pointing out that people of similar beliefs, cultures, and values flock together is very politically incorrect. Especially if you’re white and a male.
Heaven forbid you’re a white male with money. That it’s factually accurate doesn’t matter, but then again, most things that are PC fly in the face of reality anyway.
And before you dismiss this or me as some old cranky bastard sitting on the porch waving my stick at the few young kids who are being unruly, realise that the SJW’s world vision is gathering momentum at one helluva speed.
Just recently Germund Hesslow, a Swedish professor of neuroscience at Lund University, who holds dual PhDs in philosophy and neurophysiology, found himself under investigation for “anti-feminism” and “transphobia” after he said that there are fundamental differences between men and women, which are “biologically founded” and that genders cannot be regarded as “social constructs alone”.
This is, of course, like saying that dogs have 4 legs and birds only have 2. It’s so obvious someone suggesting otherwise is clearly retarded.
In any event, it now looks like he may lose his job. And even if he doesn’t the angst caused will certainly make others who wish to speak the truth to think twice. Their family’s wellbeing is at risk if they choose not to.
These loons get all lathered up with trivialities that wouldn’t have made it into a Harry Potter novel, and instead of being laughed at and ridiculed, they’re accepted and implemented as policy.
If you find this ridiculous and appalling, you’re not alone.
It’s not just little kids. This garbage is really prevalent now in higher education centres in the West.

So there it is. Kindergarten through to higher education. Well, at least it’s not entered the corporate world, right?
Not so fast, Batman. According to Forbes:
California has enacted a new law mandating that companies incorporated in California as well as foreign corporations (such as Delaware corporations) headquartered in California, and which are listed on major U.S. stock exchanges, have at the close of calendar 2019:
- At least 1 female director
At the close of calendar 2021:
- At least 3 female directors if the board of directors’ size then is 6 or more members
- At least 2 female directors if the board of directors’ size then is 5 members
- At least 1 female director if the board of directors’ size then is 4 or fewer members
The following penalties would be imposed by the California Secretary of State for violations of the new law: (1) a $100,000 fine for a first-time violation, and (2) a $300,000 fine for a second and each subsequent violation. The new law will not be violated where a female director holds her directorship for less than a full year.
Don’t clap, don’t admire a pretty girl, and don’t call someone man or woman because they may identify as some other hogwosh. It’s enough to drive a man to drink.
So what, Chris?
Well, if like me, you’ve children you’re raising in this crazy world, it’s a concern. There is much more to it but here’s a few steps I’m taking in my own fight against the insanity.
Lessons I’m Teaching My Kids
You will note that you’ll be able to identify this “toxicity” by looking at all the things I’m teaching my kids. It’s all toxic to the loons which is all the more reason it’s worth teaching.
- Defiance. Though it’s often frustrating and can cause conflict, I want my kids to stand on their own two feet, think independently, and be able to live productive lives on their own terms.
- Risk taking. There is no better time to take risk than early on. Starting a new business in your 20’s is an entirely different risk to taking on the same challenge in your 50’s. Fail early and fail fast.
- Resilience. Life’s hard. Get over it, get used to it.
- Compounding. This goes for knowledge as well as financial resources. The two are connected. Never stop learning. Ever. The world keeps changing, and if you’re not making an attempt to understand those changes, you’re placing yourself at not only a significant disadvantage but potential risk.
- Be humble. Not just because it’s the right thing to do and nobody likes an asshole but because I’ve a strong feeling that as the Western world comes face to face with its gigantic debt issues, the “eat the rich” strategy so typically invoked by broke governments will accelerate. And by “rich” they will mean everyone who isn’t them.
- Privilege. Is relative, and you should spend your time earning it and never let anyone use it as a weapon against you.
- Know your enemy. Now, more than ever, it’s important to realise that an entire generation is currently being indoctrinated. And if you’re not part of this indoctrination, you’d better understand what this means. Understanding what people think and why is the first step. The second is to rapidly identify motivations and underlying thinking. What I mean here is best illustrated by an example. Whenever some dolt begins using any of the terms I mentioned in here:
The social justice warriors behind this are nothing more than pimps — pushing dangerous and myopic initiatives such as:
Affirmative action, which, if we’re being honest, really amounts to hiring people who couldn’t otherwise be hired for the given job.
Inclusivity, which amounts to much of the same thing. Actually, it’s the very worst thing possible because, if you think about it, the only reason you’d include someone in something… anything is because you want them there. Typically, this is the result of their skills, demeanour, and other attributes they bring to the relationship. Being forced to do so is quite different.
Equality. When you hear someone talking like this, run away. Or better yet, slap them very hard to wake them up. What they’re talking about is equality of outcome, which is NOT the same thing as equality of opportunity. They are dangerous beyond measure. The latter is what the Western world has largely built over the past 100 years, and sure it’s not perfect, but it’s a helluva lot better than the former, which is what Mao’s China and Stalin’s Russia tried.
White privilege, which attempts to categorise a specific group (which conveniently holds the wealth) and chastise that group for its contributions to the economy, and humanity and then goes on to demand that group pays for any other group that for some reason (and there are many) has or even thinks it has less.
Underwriting all of the above is a belief that those who are perceived to have been aggressed upon are thus “owed” by the aggressors. It’s a devilishly deceptive means of theft.
The following paragraph contains words and/or views that survivors of masculinephobic abuse may find triggering.
To all those advocating for equality, inclusivity, while getting all lathered up about white privilege and toxic masculinity and all this pseudo intellectual virtue signalling bullshit, let me remind you that if it weren’t for said masculinity you’d all still be living in a damp cave picking lice out of your children’s hair as you approach the end of your life which would be in your 20’s.
You are a disgrace. You are a cowardly, pathetic, useless, gutless, spineless, herd of hypocritical bed-wetting, entitled, comfort-blanket-hugging children. For goodness’ sake, grow up, pull yourself together, stop your bloody whining, and get out of the way for the rest of us who have things to do, value to create, and productive lives ahead of us.
That is all.
“If you have your children in a school and they talk about equity, diversity, inclusivity, white privilege, systemic racism, any of that. You take your children out of the class. They’re not being educated, they’re being indoctrinated and there’s absolutely no excuse for it.” — Professor Jordan Peterson
