It's an Outrage! I'm offended!!!!!

Post  bb1 on Tue Jan 19, 2016 11:02 am

Today's universities - a haven for closed minds:

http://www.pressgazette.co.uk/charlie-hebdo-sun-star-and-lads-among-titles-banned-sale-32-uk-universities-research-finds

Certain newspapers and magazines are banned from sale at 32 universities around the UK, according to research by the website Spiked.

It uncovered the apparent censorship as part of a piece of research for the 2016 University Free Speech rankings.

The bans are all imposed by student union bodies and mainly appear to be due to concern about the depiction of women in publications.

Some 28 universities ban the Daily Star and/or The Sun, according to the research. In most cases both titles are banned, meaning they are not available in university newsagents.

According to Spiked most bans were inspired by the No More Page Three campaign against topless photographs appearing in The Sun. The News UK title stopped showing topless photos on page three in January last year, but the Daily Star continues the practice.

According to Spiked, four universities banned ‘Lads’ Mags’, although with the closure of Zoo and FHM at the end of last year it is unclear what magazines remain in that category to ban.

The research reveals that Bristol and Manchester universities also ban French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. The title has provoked outrage from many Muslims because of its depiction of the prophet Muhammad.

Aberystwyth University students’ union has banned the Daily Express, apparently in protest at the titles’ coverage of travellers.

According to Spiked, most UK universities have some form of censorship. It reports that 20 have banned clubs or societies and 19 have banned speakers.

Some 39 per cent have “no platform” policies, which are often used to stop those with racist or extreme right wing views from speaking at events.

The research found that 21 per cent have “safe space” policies, which can be used to impose broader bans on speakers or events which some students may find offensive.


God forbid the special snowflakes should ever be confronted by views that differ from their own.

The funniest was when some so-called 'feminists' tried to ban Germaine Greer because she dissed Brucelyn Jenner.

The latest GBK ad campaign shows how normal it's become to mock and persecute vegetarians
Over the last few years there’s been a real push by the meat industry to make eating meat cool, hipster (see: pulled pork) and masculine


There has? Who knew? I seem to have missed this micro-aggression....

Thanks to those who pointed out that "sausage fest" is transphobic. Tweet deleted with apologies; it was unthinking & insensitive.

http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/636558/Councillor-s-Allo-Allo-speech-racism-uproar-town-hall

Councillor's ’Allo ’Allo speech sparks racism uproar from town hall

A COUNCILLOR has been accused of “casual racism” after adopting an ’Allo ’Allo-style French accent during a debate.


Quote:

But leader of the local Green group Tom Crone failed to see the funny side and emailed the council’s chief executive Ged Fitzgerald to complain.

He wrote: “We, the Green group of councillors, have discussed this matter and, whilst we do not wish to raise a formal complaint, we do wish to make clear that we consider this behaviour as distasteful and something which should not be part of a council meeting.

“You will be aware that comments of this nature can lead to other, more serious, expressions and that some will consider it as casual racism...

“I am requesting you to write to the Labour chief whip and the group leaders of the other parties to ask that they refrain from such behaviour in future council meetings.”


wker

Thankfully, the whinging Green was slapped down by a grown-up:

Liverpool’s Labour mayor Joe Anderson leapt to his defence, saying in an email: “Listen carefully, I shall say this only once, Tim Beaumont is not racist. There are, however, some big boobys who are calling themselves councillors.

Yup.

http://metro.co.uk/2016/01/25/amazon-needs-to-sack-jeremy-clarkson-before-he-taints-their-service-for-good-

SJW rant begins:

Amazon needs to sack Jeremy Clarkson before he taints their service for good
OPINION
Hanna Flint for Metro.co.ukMonday 25 Jan 2016 2:08 pm

Jeremy Clarkson has proven once again what an intolerant human being he is.
The ex-Top Gear presenter has offered his two cents on transgenderism, by criticising his friend’s friends for accepting that their children might be transgender and allowing them to explore it.
‘I wanted to seek [the parents] out and explain that they were free to live a lunatic life, they must not… be allowed to poison the mind of a child,’ he writes in his Sunday Times column. ‘When I was five I wanted to be Alan Whicker, but my parents didn’t buy me a blazer and send me to hospital to have my adenoids sewn up.

‘You don’t actually take them seriously…you don’t take them to a hospital when they’re 10 and say, “he wants to be a girl, so can you lop his todger off?”‘
What a simplistic attitude he has towards an issue he clearly has little knowledge of, or even tried to understand.
Many have slammed Clarkson for making such harmful statements about trans children who, for many, aren’t getting the support at home they deserve as they try to truly identify with the male or female person inside.



SJW rant ends:

So Amazon, if you’re reading this, do yourself a favour and put him down before his rabid intolerance taints you too.


I think we can all see who is the 'intolerant' one; I do believe it is SJW Hannah Flint, as she is the one calling for people to be sacked, shunned, etc., because she doesn't agree with their opinion.

I do hope 2016 sees the back of the self-proclaimed Social Justice Warriors.

http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/feb/13/peter-tatchell-snubbed-students-free-speech-veteran-gay-rights-activist?CMP=twt_gu

The emails from the officer of the National Union of Students were unequivocal. Fran Cowling, the union’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) representative, said that she would not share a stage with a man whom she regarded as having been racist and “transphobic”.

That the man in question is Peter Tatchell – one of the country’s best-known gay rights campaigners, who next year celebrates his 50th year as an activist – is perhaps a mark of how fractured the debate on free speech and sexual politics has become.

In the emails, sent to the organisers of a talk at Canterbury Christ Church University on Monday on the topic of “re-radicalising queers”, Cowling refuses an invitation to speak unless Tatchell, who has also been invited, does not attend. In the emails she cites Tatchell’s signing of an open letter in the Observer last year in support of free speech and against the growing trend of universities to “no-platform” people, such as Germaine Greer, for holding views with which they disagree.
...etc

Pathetic whiners. rofl

The Outraged! appear to have driven Stephen Fry, of all people, off twitter, because they decided he said something sexist, or genderist, or bag ladyist, last night:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-35577913

Bafta show host Stephen Fry appears to have deleted his Twitter profile in the wake of his controversial comments during Sunday night's show.
Fry faced strong criticism online for comparing costume designer Jenny Beavan to a "bag lady" when she picked up her Bafta for Mad Max.
Twitter users demanded Fry apologise for his comments over her clothes.
But Fry, a prolific Twitter user, said online afterwards Beavan was "a dear friend" who had "got" the joke.
The comedian and broadcaster underlined the point by posting a photo of the pair at the Bafta after-party.
He wrote: "Jenny Baglady Beavan and Stephen Outrageous Misogynist Swine Fry at the after party."
