HBO Max said the 1939 film was “a product of its time” and depicted “ethnic and racial prejudices” that “were wrong then and are wrong today,” reports BBC News.
The controversy centers around a depiction of slave characters who are content to stay with their owners after slavery is abolished (something that did happen and is not historically inaccurate).
The film’s removal takes on an added layer of ludicrousness when you consider that in deleting the movie, HBO has also erased the first black female Oscar winner from history.
Outlining sexism perpetrated by the tolerant left
Wage gap is not “about men and women doing similar work for different pay, but about men and women pursuing different careers”.
Teachers are more lenient in their marking of girls’ schoolwork, according to an international study. An OECD report on gender in education, across more than 60 countries, found that girls receive higher marks compared with boys of the same ability. Differences in school results can sometimes “have little to do with ability”, says the study.
The OECD study, examining gender inequality in education, says that girls can be put off careers in science because of a lack of self-confidence and negative stereotypes.
He says that “gender differences in self-confidence” could be the key difference. Even though girls might achieve better academic results, there is still a reluctance to apply for jobs.
The very lowest achieving pupils in maths, reading and science are much more likely to be boys and these male underachievers are much more likely to leave school early and end up without any qualifications.
Boys v. girls
- Lowest achievers more likely to be boys
- Boys more likely to be very highest achievers in maths and science
- Teachers give girls higher marks than boys of a similar ability
- Boys far behind girls at reading while at school, but gap closes among adults
- Girls less likely to consider careers in maths and science
Joe Biden has been accused of sexual assault, and conservatives are having a field day, exultant that they’ve caught feminists in a new hypocrisy trap. A woman, with no corroboration beyond contemporaneous accounts, charges a powerful man with a decades-old crime? Hmm, doesn’t that sound mighty close to Christine Blasey Ford’s complaint against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh? Yet this time, many liberals who’ve championed the #MeToo movement seem skeptical?
Tim Graham, executive editor of NewsBusters: “Where is the #MeToo movement on this story? What happened to their rigid ‘Believe All Women’ boilerplate?”
Fox News host Tucker Carlson: “the infuriating, the sickening hypocrisy of the media and the professional feminist movement. ‘Believe All Women!’ No they don’t.”
White House adviser Kellyanne Conway: “Three magic words, ‘Believe All Women.’ I didn’t hear an asterisk; I didn’t see a footnote, ‘Believe All Women so long as they are attacking somebody aligned with President Trump, Believe All Women so long as they are — have a college degree or better or are — are for abortion in the ninth month.’”
In fact, “Believe All Women” does have an asterisk: *It’s never been feminist “boilerplate.” What we are witnessing is another instance of the right decrying what it imagines the American women’s movement to be.
Spend some mind-numbing hours tracking the origins of “Believe All Women” on social media sites and news databases — as I did — and you’ll discover how language, like a virus, can mutate overnight. All of a sudden, yesterday’s quotes suffer the insertion of some foreign DNA that makes them easy to weaponize. In this case, that foreign intrusion is a word: “all.”
New York Times: Why Are Women-Led Nations Doing Better With Covid-19? – [if you don’t look at Belgium (female PM) with the most deaths per million]
The article mentions Jacinda Ardern, Germany, led by Angela Merkel, Finland, where Prime minister Sanna Marin, 34, governs with a coalition of four female-led parties, and Tsai Ing-wen, the president of Taiwan
Ms. Ardern’s success is the latest data point in a widely noticed trend: Countries led by women seem to be particularly successful in fighting the coronavirus.
We should resist drawing conclusions about women leaders from a few exceptional individuals acting in exceptional circumstances. But experts say that the women’s success may still offer valuable lessons about what can help countries weather not just this crisis, but others in the future.
But this fake news propagandist specifically excluded Belgium with it’s female PM Sophie Wilmès which has the highest per million population death rate:

On the popular view, there are fewer female than male professors because women’s qualifications weigh lighter than men’s. Yet, according to a striking new study from Umeå University in Sweden the situation is very much the opposite: in the period 2009-2014, new male professors in medicine had 64 percent more publications and no less than 260 percent more citations than new female professors. The study was rejected by five journals without refereeing for being considered, among other things, “inappropriate”, until it was finally published after peer-review in the journal Studies in Higher Education.
Game studio Naughty Dog made female characters less feminine to be trans friendly in The Last of Us Part II – appeasing the 0.5% at the cost to 50%
“The team is very much divided on the game [The Last of Us Part II], and even voicing your concerns on its story will upset certain individuals; it usually results in said person being called closed-minded or even phobic, or some such nonsense. Some people literally have to bite their tongues or fear losing their jobs, even careers, to an outrage mob.”
It seems, though, that the inclusion of gay and lesbian characters in the last three Naughty Dog games was not enough to appease the activists who are reportedly working at Naughty Dog. The Last of Us Part II gameplay footage leak confirms that the plot has some extreme trans rights ideologies, too.
We spoke to a seasoned artist who has worked as a character designer for several AAA games and he admitted that “this is the new norm.”
He added: “This is only true for trans people. A trans woman can’t naturally grow large breasts, and not all trans people can afford implants. If you see a game where the women are a little less curvy, it’s not to because the game designers are worried about receiving backlash for sexualising women, it’s because they are worried about offending the trans community.”
“From a design stand point, this is a really challenging problem. I’ve had many board meetings about how to tackle this. Trans people want ‘realistic’ representation in our games, but they feel excluded if they are represented as too masculine or too feminine. That’s why you will see a lot of designers ‘nerfing the female form’ so to speak so that the difference between trans women and cis women is a little less noticeable.”
Mehreen Faruqi, Greens Senator for NSW: COVID-19 is a gendered crisis. Nurses, nurse aides, teachers, child carers and early-childhood educators, aged-care workers and cleaners are mostly women.
“COVID-19 is a gendered crisis. Nurses, nurse aides, teachers, child carers and early-childhood educators, aged-care workers and cleaners are mostly women. They are on the frontline of this public health crisis and carry a disproportionate risk of being exposed to the virus.”
Billie Eilish is being touted for her anti-body shaming at her recent concert, but she’s a hypocrite
https://youtu.be/YavL_IVSGV4 At 3 mins she goes off about men being ugly, “if you give an ugly man a chance he thinks he rules the world”, “because they got a hot girl they can be horrible” implying men who are “ugly” are horrible (based on what?), then goes on to stereotype men who are ugly and have “small dicks” get huge mansions (how in the hell would she know the size of someone’s penis based on their choices in housing, their faces, or their choice in women?) “to make up for it (their penises- therefore now dick shaming men)”
In a minute or so she demeans men in general, stereotypes men with choices in cars and homes, and completely devalues the worthiness of “ugly men”.
She’s not against body shaming. She’s against people making fun of her.
As a male candidate you are welcome to apply for a position as Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Engineering at Lund University. However, internal documents tell another story: the faculty only provides the necessary funding for the position if a woman is to receive it. If a male applicant is about to get the position, the appointment is canceled. Then the department can make a new attempt to get a woman by advertising a new position, and so on.
If the recruitment process result is that an Assistant Professor of underrepresented gender cannot be hired, LTH funds will not be used. The department can then choose to go ahead with the proposed applicant and fund it with their own resources or interrupt the recruitment process. If a recruitment process is interrupted, another Assistant Professorship may be advertised, such as the one that came in 5th place when allocating funds, or alternatively five jobs may be announced the following year.
Leftists promote “diversity” but never diversity of thought: Male applicants excluded from professorship at Stockholm University for Arts, Crafts and Design: their art “Old Time Machoism”
male applicants for a professorship in Visual Communication are marginalized as a group because their art is considered masculine.
One of the new experts stands out by excluding a group of male applicants for having produced supposedly “conservative” and “powerful” macho art.
Actress Tessa Thompson has said that she does not want to work with “bunch of white people” or men.
The star of Selma and the Creed franchise has said she does not wish to walk on set and have white males predominate either on screen or off.
Whether in front or behind the camera the actress, who plays the wife of Adonis Creed in the latest instalment of the boxing franchise, has insisted she wants to work on “inclusive” productions.
Speaking at the European premiere of Creed II she told the Press Association: “I don’t want to show up on set and just see a bunch of white people, no offence. And I don’t want to work in the company of a bunch of men. No offence.
“I want to see work that really looks like the world in which we live. There are lots of people of colour, look around. It’s also really exciting not just what we put on screen, but also to work on productions that are inclusive
