Role reversals

Along with the Phallic Females and Numinous Negroes who have long populated the fictional world that the Bien-Pensants want us to believe is both how things are and how they ought to be*, Precocious Brats are another character set which should be waaaaaay rolled back. This is the child --usually, though not always, a girl-- who is the family Alpha Dog, to whose mood swings, cartoon ideas and snappy rudeness the adults in the family defer. Or whose superior emotional insight puts the oldsters to shame. The "adults" appease, coddle, explain and justify. It's revolting.

Unlike the women and Blacks in these roles, who are far more rare in real life, the Precious Brat is common enough.

A rightwing thinker recently wrote: "We set up entire social systems and ideologies at odds with our most basic instincts, and wonder why the world seems to have lost its mind."

Cough, Lisa Simpson, cough. This character type already gets incessantly mocked, but it keeps coming back like athlete's foot. When it's all three, it's pretty insufferable.

Justice served on Kermit Gosnell. There is some justice in the world, after all. I don't think we need to get the death penalty. The reaction of the inmates at his prison suggests that a life sentence would get the same result. Maybe now we can start to undo the madness that was Roe v. Wade, make abortion an unfortunate procedure used to save the life of a mother when it is clear that waiting to remove the child would be fatal, and neither mother or child would survive.

This is one of the issues that I still fully agree with the Church on. Destroying your own child in the womb is worse than animal, its monstrous. Animals don't kill their young for their "mental health."

Shocking that blacks support the work of a woman who wanted to destroy them. But then, a lot of things that blacks do seem self-damaging.
