I think most Universities in Britain are Government-funded (mostly). I'm sure one could set up an Islamic university and allow segregated seating, even at public events.

You're quite right to look down on them as savages. Indeed, the Scotch folk are a proud and dignified race who emphasize intelligence as a virtue.

You can probably answer that question as well as I can, but AFAIK -- liberal arts colleges are mostly run on their endowments and tuition (but also usually benefit in various ways from government grants and government subsidies of tuition/loans for their students -- not too mention significant tax advantages as non-profit institutions). So even "private" institutions in the US are partially "public" -- private research universities even moreso.

Have a read through the various personality types, the similarities with certain people are striking.

Couple this concept with francs favourite slave morality literature.

The "game" position of Rescuer is distinct from that of a genuine rescuer in an emergency, such as a firefighter who saves a victim from a burning building or a lifeguard who saves a victim from drowning. As a drama role, there is something dishonest or unspoken about the Rescuer's attempts, or at best, a mixed motive or need to be a rescuer or have a victim to help. In fact, 'The Karpman Triangle game inhibits real problem-solving...creates confusion and distress, not solutions'.[10] A drama triangle "Rescuer" plays the role more because they are driven to be a rescuer as a way of avoiding looking at their own anxiety, underlying feelings than because the victim needs their involvement, as in the case of a fireman/rescuer.

While it's disgraceful that she was charged 5 years for the enrollment as well (especially in a country like the US, where education is sorely needed), it does seem the case was about the drugs she sold to an undercover police - twice. It's therefore very dishonest to paint the case in just the terms Kassiane did, that she was sentenced to jail *just* for the enrollment (which, again, is pretty fucked up). However that is unfortunately the kind of thing we've come to expect from Atheism Plus. Some "third wave of atheism" that turned out to be.


She was charged because she lived in one municipality and enrolled the kid in another using someone else's address. Education is controlled and paid for etc at the municipal level. Following links in the news site it appears the kid is now living with the grandparent now and attending school in the district he/she should have all along. Ironically enough the mother was arrested for selling crack in front of a school in that district, so I wonder if that didn't sway the mother's opinion as to where she wanted her kid to go to school.


Oh. In the article, it said she sold the drugs in front of her home. That explains it then. Adding to the irony, if her mother didn't want her son to enroll in the school because she sold drugs outside of it, now he's going to have it even worse. Ah, self-fulfilling prophecy.


The article I read said she was arrested in front of a school in the municipality, it didn't say if that was the one the kid was to have gone to.

The 'big 5' model is the most up to date in personality psychology as far as I'm aware. Cant vouch for all the data on the link but it's a précis http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Five_personality_traits

So ... does Kassiane apologize, or does anyone else call her out, for being completely misleading in the OP? I'll give you three guesses.

http://atheismplus.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4161


The thing about people like this (i.e. Kassisne et al) is they don't really believe their own rhetoric. It's a sick fantasy of sorts. This wasn't an honest mistake by Kassiane; she knew the charge of various and sundry isms at work here was dubious at best. She doesn't care. The me-so-oppressed identity politics thing is like a perverse role playing game. They know damn well the US and other Western democracies aren't oppressive places dominated by racists, but get off on pretending it's so, and that they are on the receiving end of the oppression. A+ isn't so much a 'safe space' for 'the marginalized' as it is a club where people with oppression fantasies can play "let's pretend we're like blacks in the Jim Crow south!" together. To be blunt, they're sick fucks.

As to WHY they get off on this, I can only speculate. It's clear they imagine being part of an 'oppressed' group makes one in some sense 'special'. Clearly there is some sort of fetishisation of ethnicity and oppression at play here, and a perverse fascination with being in some way or other disadvantaged. But I think it's telling that so many of them are white and/or have paper thin claims to 'marginalized' status.

Can users edit their comments on RDFRS?
Because
[Link to personal blog removed by moderator for 4th time. Please do not repost]

would be pretty damn hilarious if so, since it would imply Benson just couldn't take the hint and instead went and re-edited it in after it had been removed by mods... 4 times. She'd be banned from most other sites for pulling a stunt like that...

In either case, it's extremely amusing to see Benson completely fail to grasp that rules against advertisements includes not allowing people to try to drive traffic to their own blogs, and that rules apply to everyone, including her (must be such a shock to her every time she leaves FTB!).
While it's not wrong to want to share something relevant you wrote yourself, instead of repeatedly plastering it the comment section, the polite, and sane thing to do is to mail the author or site owner and ask them if they want to link to you. That way, it's their choice if they want to promote your or not, and you don't come off as a self-promoting asshole who's just trying to get traffic.

Of course, if you're only copy-pasting other people's work and not adding anything but a content-lacking sentence or two, chances are high that no one will agree to link to you and instead go directly to the one you stole from your material from quoted ...

Stanshall's most enduring and amazing creation. BTW, I have a fairly large collection of unofficial Stanshall stuff. Most of it isn't that difficult to come by now, but I can make it available if you want. Or you could visit the Rawlinson End Audio Archive and the Solo Stanshall web sites.

All the original Rawlinson End stuff is there, as are the Radio Flashes.

If you've not read it, grab a copy of Ginger Geezer too, the excellent biography of Viv. I remember visiting the Old Profanity Showboat when I was a uni in Bristol, and seeing Viv down there.

I've already got a wealth of early audio clips but I'll check out those links when I get home.

Being familiar with the characters doesn't quite do it. Because of where I grew up, I'm reasonably fluent in Weegie but Geordie still sounds like a drunk walrus.

Hmm, just listening to the most recent Godless Bitches podcast 3.03.

A few lines from the show:

"If someone has an opinion you don't like, there is nothing compelling you to give a shit."

"It's about the idea of you not respecting what I believe. The outrage comes from a feeling of entitlement. That I am entitled to having my beliefs respected and I don't need to really offer any reason other than I respect my beliefs."

"There is no opinion that anyone else is going to hold as universally respectable."

"The idea that you're going to sort of bully people into respecting what you believe is completely wrong."

"Hate me as much as you want, tell me you hate me as much as you want - I only care when you start trying to put restrictions on me."

"You don't get to decide what I believe. You don't get to share in my opinions and I don't have to check with you to make sure that my opinions are valid through your eyes."


She was talking about crazy religious people but she could have very well been describing FTB/A+...

I recently introduced a Taiwanese friend to Rab. He refused to believe that was a form of English. Still thinks I was messing with him.

Astrokid is one of the AVFM contingent. I think he was the one that wrote that stupid article over there after the Indian gang rape and murder case, saying that the big problem there was sexism against men!
He seems to barely conceal a hate for women - which is probably the reason he rarely posts here.

Desperate measures by Peezus if he's forced to trawl through AVFM writers and try to paint them as representitive of the Slymepit.

If you've got time to be doing extra things then don't spend it in stuff that stresses you out and frustrates you. Your research has got that angle covered, especially when it gets to crunch-time.

Ah, one of my favourite pass-times! Allow me (Glasgow born & bred) to give you a quick "weedgie 101" :lol:

Yiir (rhymes with "her") - Your

Maw (Rhymes with "saw" - Mother

Goat (as normal) - got

Baws (as in plural of "saw") - testicles (Lit: Balls)

Ok, now we put all of them together (literally, spoken as one giant word) and we have an authentic "weedgie" insult.

Repeat after me: Yiirmawsgoatbaws!

For added authenticity, grunt it in an angry tone whilst a soggy hand-rolled cigarette (a "bine") dangles from the corner of your mouth. In no time at all, you'll be singing along to this:



Note: My soul dies a little every time I watch this. It plays to every stereotype associated with the Glasgow youth sub-culture.

While I was working there I was paired with a manager from [Big Consultancy That Doesn't Really Deserve To Remain Nameless]. She was from Glasgow. My team was made up of people from the US and France. Once they found that she had a temper and that her accent would get thicker and she'd use more slang the angrier she got, things went rapidly downhill. Having a wee female Rab about was fun off and on, but not good for delivering the project.
