STD Mycoplasma Genitalium Makes Women Infertile, Could Become Superbug

Great news for women who have liberated themselves from sexual morality. Soon they may be able to indulge in random sex to their heart’s content without worrying about either the inconvenience of reproducing, or the expense of abortion or even birth control. The sexually transmitted disease mycoplasma genitalium may soon become resistant to standard antibiotics. It can make women infertile, completing the feminist revolution:

One in every 100 British adults aged 18 to 44 are already thought to be infected with the bug.

Experts are warning that this figure is set to double within 10 years as it becomes untreatable.

An alarming characteristic is that most people have no symptoms from MG infection, passing it along unknowingly.

A gynecologist offers the advice you might expect from today’s media, recommending we “pack condoms for the summer holidays”:

“You can’t shut down easyJet, the internet, Tinder and Grindr, all of which make it easier to find new partners. So people need to take precautions.”

Maybe if we can’t shut down Tinder, Grindr, et cetera, they will be shut down for us, if not by MG than by something still worse. There are reasons successful civilizations developed monogamy.

Why Multiculturalism Doesn’t Work: A Protest Against Gentrification

Look what happens if you try to open up an art gallery in a part of the USA that has been annexed by the slums of Mexico, thereby engaging in gentrification:

The irony of Mexicans — many of whom are in our country as a result of illegal immigration — demanding that we evacuate parts of our own land so that they don’t feel “displaced” is lost on the moonbats at HuffPost, who embrace scenes like this as our national future.

The spectacle recorded in the video above is apparently the same one that took place at Mariachi Plaza in Los Angeles last February 7…

…it was organized by Defend Boyle Heights, a coalition of scorched-earth young activists from the surrounding neighborhood — the heart of Mexican-American L.A. — who have rejected the old, peaceful forms of resistance (discussion, dialogue, policy proposals) and decided that the only sensible response is to attack and hopefully frighten off the sorts of art galleries, craft breweries and single-origin coffee shops that tend to pave the way for more powerful invaders: the real estate agents, developers and bankers whose arrival typically mark a neighborhood’s point of no return.

Permit even the least bit of America to return to conquered portions of the USA, and next thing you know it isn’t a welfare-financed, drug-infested, garbage-strewn hellhole anymore. So fascist tactics are employed, with HuffPost’s righteous approval:

A gallery closed its doors after its “staff and artists were routinely trolled online and harassed in person.” An experimental street opera was shut down after members of the Roosevelt High School band — egged on by a group of activists — used saxophones, trombones and trumpets to drown it out. A real estate bike tour promising clients access to a “charming, historic, walkable and bikeable neighborhood” was scrapped after the agent reported threats of violence.

If we want to have our own country, we will have to fight to reclaim it. The sooner this happens, the more likely we are to succeed.

Unaccompanied Alien Children Include the Worst of the Third World and Its Problems

About those unaccompanied alien children who continue to pour into the country, tugging on media heartstrings:

Official government incident reports obtained by Judicial Watch after three years of delay provide a clearer profile of the “unaccompanied alien children” who flooded the U.S. border during the Obama administration and continue to arrive, documenting that among them were admitted murderers, rapists, drug smugglers, prostitutes and human traffickers.

Of course, some of them really are innocent children. Encouraging their parents to launch them into our country unlawfully is not doing them any favors.

Further, a substantial number of the children were raped or molested en route to the United States or in the United States, and government workers and contractors were among their abusers.

Our failure to defend our border isn’t helping women much either.

Separately, an investigation by Fusion in 2014 found an astounding 80 percent of women and girls crossing into the U.S. by way of Mexico were raped during their journey.

A minefield along the border and immediate deportation of anyone in the country illegally would put an end to this misery. The policy would be far more humane than encouraging the current nightmare to continue by letting illegal immigrants enter and stay.

Desecrating Old Glory as Art at the University of Kansas

According to the United States Code (Title 4, Chapter 1, Section 3), desecrating Old Glory can get you in trouble:

Any person who, within the District of Columbia, in any manner, for exhibition or display, shall place or cause to be placed any word, figure, mark, picture, design, drawing, or any advertisement of any nature upon any flag, standard, colors, or ensign of the United States of America; or shall expose or cause to be exposed to public view any such flag, standard, colors, or ensign upon which shall have been printed, painted, or otherwise placed … shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine not exceeding $100 or by imprisonment for not more than thirty days, or both, in the discretion of the court.

Too bad the University of Kansas isn’t located in DC:

The University of Kansas is hosting a display on campus featuring an American flag that has been smeared with black paint by an artist as a commentary on “the current political climate.” …

The flag, “untitled (flag 2),” was designed by German artist Josephine Meckseper and is being displayed in several locations across the United States, including KU, Cornell University, Texas State University, Rutgers University, and the University of South Florida.

Meckseper justifies her insult by raving about Trump withdrawing from the Kyoto Protocol, which the US Senate nixed by a vote of 95-0 back in 1997. Presumably, she means the Paris Climate Accord, which would have screwed over the USA mightily and had no likelihood of improving the weather. You can’t expect artists to have a clue when it comes to current events.

If only a German had presented a defaced Old Glory for display on American campuses about 75 years ago. Its reception would have been more appropriate.

Inmate Requests Ramadan Meal Schedule, Then Sues Because His Lunch Was Withheld

Failing to cater obsequiously to Ramadan is Islamophobic oppression and probably grounds for a lawsuit. So is catering obsequiously to Ramadan. A tale from North Carolina:

Travaile Speller has sued, claiming that his jailers and the Mecklenburg Sheriff’s Office discriminated against his religious practice by forcing him to eat only two meals each day during Ramadan.

Sniveled Speller in a hand-written complaint,

“They are intentionally eliminating one whole meal (lunch) which is cruel and unusual punishment directed towards all Muslims.”

Muslims are not supposed to eat during daylight hours during Ramadan. Speller had signed a form so as to be served meals on the Ramadan schedule, i.e., before sunrise and after sunset only.

Two weeks after the Ramadan fast ended, however, Speller filed his complaint. He says the loss of a month of midday meals violated the equal protection clause of the Constitution.

Lowlifes don’t get into prison by being smart. But the system is dumber still. Having been arrested at least 10 times in the past 2 years, Speller knows the system well.

His lawsuit calls for a jury trial, and $250,000 in damages.

Wouldn’t it be easier to drop the servile Islamopandering and feed all the criminals on the same schedule? If they don’t want to eat, they don’t have to.

University of California, Santa Barbara Promotes Child Sex

Child sex is emerging as a major feature of the progressive agenda. As noted earlier, admitted pedophiles are rebranding themselves as MAPs and demanding the same obsequious treatment received by other LGBT Persons of Sacred Oppressedness. Academia, always at the cutting edge of modern liberalism, offers this:

A bizarre site published by UC Santa Barbara argues that children from ages four to seven should engage in “sexual play.” “Sexual play,” as defined by the site, refers to acts as innocent as “playing house,” and as sexual as the touching of their peers’ genitals. According to the site, parents should not react negatively if their young child decides to explore the genitals of another child.

Parents are advised that they must not express disapproval of child sexual behavior, because it could result in feelings of guilt. To grow up with the moral creed “If it feels good, do it, so long as it isn’t un-P.C.,” you can’t have guilt or shame hampering the fun.

Women’s March Displays Its Open-Mindedness Regarding Supreme Court Pick

In case you feel the need for proof that the Left would have reacted with exactly the same hysteria no matter who Trump picked for the Supreme Court,

Following President Donald Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to replace retiring Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, the Women’s March released a statement condemning the pick.

It was comically obvious that the statement had been written in advance.

“In response to Donald Trump’s nomination of XX to the Supreme Court,” the statement began, forgetting to remove the XX from the prepared release and replace it with a name.

In the next paragraph, they remembered to put the name in, but spelled it “Cavenaugh.” Competence has never been the Left’s forte.

Eventually they sent out an updated version, exactly identical, except with Kavanaugh’s name where it belonged and spelled correctly. There was no need to revise the text in light of actually knowing who it was supposedly written about, because moonbats are not capable of distinguishing between candidates not appointed by Democrats.

This is why Trump should pick the most right-wing judges he can find. Since there will be zero cooperation anyway, there is no reason to compromise.

Digital Blackface

Caucasian denizens of the Internet are hereby warned that it is racist to indulge in digital blackface by using animated gifs featuring black celebrities. You might even say it proves that slavery is still a relevant issue, because according to Teen Vogue, “Ultimately, black people and black images are thus relied upon to perform a huge amount of emotional labor online on behalf of nonblack users.”

Mark Dice presents incontrovertible evidence that despite the many privileges they enjoy, blacks really are oppressed:

No wonder Mitch McConnell has been repeatedly targeted by mobs of moonbats. This tweet reveals him to be a racist thought criminal:

It isn’t easy to find racism against people of politically preferred pigmentation these days, but moonbats somehow manage.

Michelle Wolf Presents Salute to Abortion

On the Left, watching the screeching moonbat Michelle Wolf wallow in moral depravity is regarded as “humor.” Here she presents a salute to executing children in the womb:

Like most liberals, Ms Wolf has a lot to learn about biology. It actually requires both men and women to create life.

At least the video indirectly acknowledges that in the unlikely event Roe v Wade is overturned, abortion would still be available, Democrat rhetoric notwithstanding. It would just be slightly more expensive for those who might have to travel to a state where voters had chosen to permit it. Abortion has always been about convenience first and foremost.

Call for Straight Pride Month Incurs Moonbat Wrath

In the Land of the Sick, taking pride in being healthy is not permitted, as Dixon, California Vice-Mayor Ted Hickman learned when he facetiously proclaimed July to be Straight Pride Month:

“Now hundreds of millions of the rest of us can celebrate our month, peaking on July 4th, as healthy, heterosexual, fairly monogamous, keep our kinky stuff to ourselves, Americans,” he wrote in the community paper [Independent Voice] for the town just west of Sacramento.

Taking pride in being normal is a fundamental violation of cultural Marxism. In a culture rotted through with political correctness, it constitutes blasphemy that must be punished.

An online petition to demand his recall had more than 23,000 signers by Sunday afternoon (the entire population of Dixon was less than 19,000 in the 2010 Census). A Facebook page demanding a similar result was also created and had more than 1,700 subscribers and a similar number of “Likes” by then.

A protest is planned for this evening to intimidate the City Council into forcing out Hickman. Currently, 226 moonbats definitely plan to go and another 644 are interested. Kudos to Dixon if I’m wrong, but Hickman is probably toast.

The Newest “Oppressed” Minority: Minor Attracted Persons

It was not a question of if but when — and the answer is now. Pedophiles have officially proclaimed themselves an oppressed minority, which makes them eligible for special privileges according to our state religion, cultural Marxism. Because progressives control thought by controlling language, we are not to call them pedophiles but “minor attracted persons” (MAPs):

According to Urban Dictionary, the blanket term MAP includes infantophiles (infants), pedophiles (pre-pubescent children), hebephiles (pubescent children), and ephebophiles (post-pubescent children). Some MAPs also refer to themselves as NOMAPs or “Non-Offending Minor Attracted Persons”.

If LGBT militants and their cultural Marxist fellow travelers could even superficially normalize extremes of depravity such as homosexual “marriage,” the rest of the Devil’s agenda should be child’s play — so to speak.

An obsession with corrupting children is one of the homosexual community’s most conspicuous characteristics. Consider that its greatest hero, Harvey Milk, sexually preyed on troubled underage boys.

The “MAP/NOMAP community” tries to pull at people’s heartstrings by claiming that pedophiles are misunderstood marginalized people, and that as long as their attraction to children is not acted upon — or in some cases when they get permission from the child — that they should not be villainized.

We are asked to believe that homosexual pedophiles are the victims of bullies who pick on them for being different out of moralistic bigotry. Under the tenets of cultural Marxism, victims are always right, and their behavior must be celebrated, not criticized.

Congresscritters Demand We Pay for Their Tampons

If a Georgetown University Law School (tuition: $31,122.00 per semester) student like Sandra Fluke cannot afford contraceptives, then it follows that congresscritters cannot afford tampons. Once again, it is up to the taxpayer to provide:

Reps. Grace Meng and Sean Patrick Maloney, both New York Democrats, said the House should provide the products free of charge in all common bathrooms, and should reimburse offices that buy them.

Until they manage to pass legislation providing themselves free tampons, Rep. Maloney’s constituents are encouraged to mail him a box so that he doesn’t have to go without. Meng too, of course.

Other moonbats believe that tampons should be “free” (i.e., paid for by others) for everyone. When the ratchet has been turned all the way to true communism, everything will be free though unavailable.

Wyoming Moonbats: The World Needs Fewer Cowboys

Nothing could be more emblematic of America at its healthiest than the romantic symbol of the cowboy. That’s why the University of Wyoming came up with the marketing slogan, “The World Needs More Cowboys.” It is also why moonbats hate cowboys:

The marketing campaign, set to launch in September, was designed to increase enrollment and attract new out-of-state students, but according to The Laramie Boomerang, the UW Committee on Women and People of Color wrote a letter to university officials demanding that they “shelve” the slogan in favor of a new one that “represents the diversity of the people and cultures” at UW.

Here’s why the sort of moonbats who dominate college campuses hate cowboys:

“I am not the only person for whom the word ‘cowboy’ invokes a white, macho, male, able-bodied, heterosexual, U.S.-born person,” associate professor of kinesiology and health Christine Porter told the Boomerang.

The university should reword the slogan to make it politically correct — something like, “The world needs more Third World, wimpy, sexually ambiguous, crippled, perverted illegal aliens.” Or is that already Evergreen State’s motto?

Latest Intersectional Menace: Petro-Masculinity

Virginia Tech University professor Cara Daggett demonstrates what “higher” education has degenerated into in Millennium: Journal of International Studies with an excretion entitled “Petro-Masculinity: Fossil Fuels and Authoritarian Desire.” Let’s see how many boxes she can check in the intersectional moonbattery checklist in one paragraph of abstract:

As the planet warms, new authoritarian movements in the West are embracing a toxic combination of climate denial, racism and misogyny. Rather than consider these resentments separately, this article interrogates their relationship through the concept of petro-masculinity, which appreciates the historic role of fossil fuel systems in buttressing white patriarchal rule. Petro-masculinity is helpful to understanding how the anxieties aroused by the Anthropocene can augment desires for authoritarianism. The concept of petro-masculinity suggests that fossil fuels mean more than profit; fossil fuels also contribute to making identities, which poses risks for post-carbon energy politics. Moreover, through a psycho-political reading of authoritarianism, I show how fossil fuel use can function as a violent compensatory practice in reaction to gender and climate trouble.

Global warming hoax affirmed, check. Countermoonbats who resist leftist authoritarianism portrayed as authoritarians, check. Skeptics of the hoax dismissed with the ludicrous term “climate denial,” check. Racism blamed, check. Misogyny blamed, check. Fossil fuels (which have lifted millions out of poverty by providing the energy that makes our modern capitalist economy possible) denounced as demonic, check. Hatred of Caucasians, check. Hatred of men (i.e., “patriarchal rule”), check. “Post-carbon” energy politics consisting of corruptly subsidized inefficient idiocy like wind turbines, check. Psychobabble B.S., check. They ought to make Cara a full professor.

In the past, someone this nuts would be given Thorazine and locked in the quiet room. Today, she is probably drawing a six-figure salary for regurgitating this pernicious rubbish, while more serious people labor at useful jobs to pay for it.

If you are tired of working for a living and would rather spew moonbattery instead, there are tools to get you started. The first step is to create a title that grabs attention. I plugged “petro-masculinity” into the Random Academic Essay Title Generator and got this:

Ungendering Polyvocal Intercourse: Metaphor and Malapropism in Petro-Masculinity

That title alone should be good for a government grant. As for creating an entire article

Three MIT graduate students … wrote a simple computer program that churned out gobbledegook and presented it as an academic paper. They put their names on one of the papers, sent it to a conference, and promptly had it accepted.

Careful though. So many academics have used SCIgen to create papers, many of which actually get published, that French computer scientist Cyril Labbé wrote a computer program to detect them. Someone ought to run his program on Professor Daggett’s gibberish to see if she wrote it herself or had her computer do it.
