California continues its quest to be the craziest state in the union. The ACLU cosponsored this bill and described it as “modernizing” California HIV laws. In their report, the ACLU said that the law criminalizing the [intentional] exposure of others to the HIV virus was passed in the 1980s and was “based on fear and the limited medical understanding of the time.” LGBT activists also praised the new law, alleging that the former legislation unfairly disfavored specific groups (people of color and transgender women). The new law clearly indicates that if you wanna infect someone with HIV on purpose, hey – it’s just a misdemeanor now, nothin’ serious.
Okay the NFL’s not finished, not by a long shot. But this is a great image by artist Tom Stigligh that well captures the emotional frustration many lifelong pro football fans (including yours truly) feel about the controversial, divisive, and entirely unnecessary intrusion of empty political symbolism into your formerly relaxing Sunday afternoon.
If your university’s administration is stocked full of sycophants to the Progressive theology, it’s likely they will dutifully allow a platform for your leftist message and hesitate to resist your passion for “Social Justice” even if it should it become violent. And parents of all political persuasions, faced with spending tens of thousands of dollars a year for college (even in-state), are not hesitating to cross your school off their list of places they believe would provide their son or daughter a safe and educational environment.
It’s important for readers to know that Female Genital Mutilation is not “Female Circumcision”. That is a term used by defenders of the practice in order to make FGM seem equivalent by comparison to male circumcision. Circumcision of males carries the same risk of infection as any other medical procedure that involves cutting skin but is otherwise harmless. FGM on the other hand has long-lasting, often lifelong physical and emotional consequences for girls and is done for purposes that have nothing to do with a woman’s health or well-being.
Designers of the app say it can be used to “report, locate and avoid hazardous locations around you and elsewhere”, and has already gained positive review ratings. The app allows users to report assaults, thefts, sexual molestation, and “rudeness” in the capital city which has seen illegal migrants camping on the streets and near metro stations.
Virtue-signaling, the lazy, self-justifying compulsion of most progressives you went to school with, is the act of communicating by words, actions, or illustration their passion for some social justice issue that makes them look 1) caring; 2) in step with the times. It doesn’t need to be followed up with any walking of the talk, it just needs to be signified on Facebook cover photos, t-shirts, or words spoken a little louder than necessary at Starbucks. And although the hot social issue du jour for leftists changes a bit every 2 – 3 years, when an issue is “in”, it’s In. And today what’s In is “Welcoming Refugees”.
