    PC Gone To Crap

    WOW!!! We need a PC thread on here big time!


    NOW CLEANING POOP OFF SIDEWALKS CALLED RACIALLY INSENSITIVE


    Official says power-washing triggers 'images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists'

    Published: 17 hours ago

    Just outside the King County Superior Court in Seattle, the sidewalks are drenched in human urine and covered in excrement.
    The area is home to most of Seattle’s homeless shelter beds and social-services organizations.

    Between the worsening local crime and the filth outside the courthouse, jurors and employees say there is an “unsanitary and frightening atmosphere,” the Seattle Times reports. Two jurors have been assaulted in the area and others have asked to be released from their jury duty assignments.
    “When they come to this courthouse they’re afraid to come in,” King County Sheriff John Urquhart said. “They’re afraid to walk down Third Avenue because what they see.”
    Naturally, two judges asked the city to power-wash the sidewalks and clean up some of the filth around the courthouse.
    But one county councilmember is reportedly opposed to washing the soiled streets, the Times reports, because it could be racially insensitive.
    King County Councilmember Larry Gossett “said he didn’t like the idea of power-washing the sidewalks because it brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists,” according to the Times.

    Upon learning of Gossett’s complaint, National Review’s Katherine Timpf wrote: “Now, I’m not trying to diminish the struggles of civil-rights activists, but Gossett’s concern here is nothing short of insane. I mean, seriously — who even thinks of such a thing? I see people power-washing bodily fluids off of the streets of New York City (including streets outside of courthouses) all the time, and I have not once seen any of them being called racist. … What else are you going to do — not wash them? Because I really, really reject the idea that leaving sidewalks covered with human bodily waste is the less offensive move in this (or any) situation.”
    Gossett’s concern captured the attention of social-media users, who posted the following comments on Facebook:
    • “Liberalism at it’s best. Insanity which even a patient in an insane asylum could not come up with.” – James Gallagher
    • “How have we gotten to the point where some idiot councilman can’t understand why we have to hose down sidewalks covered with human waste, and how have we allowed it to go on so long? The answer of course, is – it’s Seattle, and who runs that asylum?” – Ray Curtis
    • “So … he’s equating civil rights activists with excrement? My question is how is it legal to send untreated sewage into the storm drains? Seattle makes California look sane.” – Jeff Hart
    • “More accurate headline: Seattle Council Incorrectly Equates Civil Rights Activists to Excrement. This guy either doesn’t know anything about the civil rights movement, or he thinks very poorly of it.” – Alan Wood
    • “Maybe Seattle should make it illegal to poop on the sidewalks. Or is that a microaggression?” – Mark Callahan
    • “Let them crap on his front lawn” – Don Stevenson

    Political correctness has this side-effect: Clairvoyance. Those disciples of PC can read your mind man! They are experts at knowing exactly what they think you are thinking. Therefore, you must be thinking that and you know it.
    You see, if it was the other way around and they were doing something like that, it would be true, because that is exactly what they would be thinking. This is akin to a mental illness (paranoia). They call this kind of stuff "microaggression." It is like when someone who knows they have B.O. walks by just at the moment you smell the bakery emission and say "What's that smell." You will never convince them you were speaking of the bakery.

    They jump to the conclusion that because they know they are prone to smell bad, you must be speaking of them. God help them.

    Say what???

    Feminist geographers encourage colleagues not to cite research of white men


    By Bradford Richardson - The Washington Times - Thursday, July 13, 2017
    Two feminist geographers are encouraging their colleagues to be more mindful about citing the research of white males because doing so contributes to “the reproduction of white heteromasculinity of geographical thought and scholarship.”
    Writing in “Gender, Place & Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography,” Carrie Mott and Daniel Cockayne argue that considering an author’s gender, race or sexuality prior to citation can be an effective “feminist and anti-racist technology of resistance that demonstrates engagement with those authors and voices we want to carry forward.”

    The authors point out that whether an academic’s research is cited by his peers has significant implications for promotion, tenure and influence. Therefore, to cite only white men “does a disservice to researchers and writers who are othered by white heteromasculinism.”
    The authors define “white heteromasculinism” as “an intersectional system of oppression describing on-going processes that bolster the status of those who are white, male, able-bodied, economically privileged, heterosexual, and cisgendered.”
    Academics should practice “conscientious engagement” when citing research, the feminists assert, “as a way to self-consciously draw attention to those whose work is being reproduced.”
    The article, titled “Citation matters: mobilizing the politics of citation toward a practice of ‘conscientious engagement,’” was first reported by Campus Reform.

    Ms. Mott told Campus Reform that “white men tend to be cited in much higher numbers than people from other backgrounds.”
    “When it is predominantly white, heteronormative males who are cited, this means that the views and knowledge that are represented do not reflect the experience of people from other backgrounds,” she said. “When scholars continue to cite only white men on a given topic, they ignore the broader diversity of voices and researchers that are also doing important work on a that topic.”

    Catchy, but misleading headline. The Washington Times author writes "Therefore, to cite only white men..."

    And one of the journal article's authors writes “When scholars continue to cite only white men on a given topic, they ignore the broader diversity of voices and researchers that are also doing important work on a that topic.”

    It doesn't sound as though they're encouraging colleagues "not to cite research of white men," as the headline states. It sounds as though they're encouraging more inclusion of citations from researchers of diverse backgrounds.

    I guess journalist and the liberal left deem this as being PC and just OK to print for 12 - 18 year old girls?
