A delegation of human rights experts from Poland, the United Kingdom and Costa Rica spent 10 days this month touring the United States so they can prepare a report on the nation's overall treatment of women.
Then fucking go back there.
"Some states have introduced gun control laws regarding domestic violence, refusing to give perpetrators of domestic violence the right to possess firearms," Raday said. "This should be a national policy, not an isolated state policy."
Oh, there it is! Yeah, that IS a federal law, you ignorant twatwaffles.
The women's other recommendations for the U.S. include passing campaign finance reform that would allow more women to be elected into office, because the networks that raise money for political candidates are mostly dominated by men.
So, you want to pass a law to "level the playing field." So, you believe women are NOT equal to men. Misogynist much?
In most European countries, she explained, abortions are performed at general doctors' offices and hospitals that offer all kinds of other health services, so there aren't protesters waiting to heckle the women who enter.
"We were harassed. There were two vigilante men waiting to insult us," said Frances Raday, the delegate from the U.K. The men repeatedly shouted, "You're murdering children!" at them as soon as they neared the clinic, even though Raday said they are clearly past childbearing age.
"It's a kind of terrorism," added Eleonora Zielinska, the delegate from Poland. "To us, it was shocking."
Of course, in Germany, you need a doctor's permission. Funny how they missed that.  Abortion is incredibly restricted in Costa Rica, and illegal in Poland unless it's life of the mother, resulting from a criminal act, or due to a severely malformed fetus. But let's criticize the US.
And it's called FREE SPEECH, you whining twunt. They're on a public sidewalk, making non-threatening statements. I understand you don't like them. I don't like them much either. On the other hand, here you are telling us how we should live our lives, so I guess tit for twat.
The U.N. suggests that countries guarantee at least 14 weeks of paid parental leave. Some countries go further -- Iceland requires five months paid leave for each parent, and an additional two months to be shared between them.
Hey, that sounds great! And after the UN pays for that, I expect most mom and pop businesses will be happy to toss in $50 or so out of their own family income.
And of course, the US hasn't spent the last half millennia being passed back and forth between Germany and Russia like some roofied prom date. But don't let that fact get in the way, either.
We won't even discuss the relative GINI or GDP of those dumps to the US.

But I do wonder if we can find a comparative on immigrants from Poland to the US, vs emigrants from the US to Poland?

Bill Dunbar makes this observation:

Something bothered me about Brits comparing sexual consent to serving tea. I finally got it down in words...


Great Britain: Hey China, I want some tea.

China: Ummm...okay, I'll fix it for you-

Great Britain: No, I want to buy your tea and sell it myself.

China: I don't think so.

Great Britain: I'm selling your daughter opium and whoring her out until you see it my way.

China: Son of a Bitch! Get out of my house!

Great Britian: My army says dibs on the guest room.

China: How much silver is it going to take to make you gwai lo lay off?

Great Britain: A lot. And the tea.

China: Well...as long as I grow the tea.

Great Britain: Hey India. I snagged some tea from China. Can I grow it in your yard?

India: I don't really use the stuff much, but I guess so...

Great Britain: I'm going to need your bedroom. And your daughter.

India: Son of a Bitch!

Great Britain: God, how I love tea and imperialism!

Great Britain: You colonies, you all love the mother country, yes? You love tea, yes? Well, since you can only trade with your mother, Mother has decided you will pay for the new curtains here at home. Mother is taxing your tea.

The Thirteen Colonies: What curtains? Shouldn't we get a say if you want us to help pay for things? We're family, for chrissakes, not some drunk you roll in an alley.

Great Britain: Lie still and think of England.

The Thirteen Colonies: No more tea. Buy your own damn curtains, Ma.

Great Britain: No tea?!? That's...unBritish!

The Thirteen Colonies: Bingo!

British and Hessian troops: Ma says you owe her some dough. Pay up before we have to get rough.

The Thirteen Colonies: Tell Ma this is my house. Coffee from now on. And I'm having French girls over, too.

Oh, those poor Syrian refugees, whom we must all take pity on and welcome into someone else's community.

Last week, a 15 year old boy died during an Ebola resurgence. Name him.

In the last decade, a million Rwandans and Angolans were butchered or killed with machetes. Do you know why? Name three.

Why do you suddenly care about this particular batch of refugees who somehow can't find anyone closer in location or similar in culture to take them?


I see naive leftists (which is half of all leftists, the other half being conniving and evil) trying to compare them to the Jews turned away from the US in the 1930s.

Here's the problem with your narrative:

A: The Jews had no Jewish nations to go to. There are plenty of Muslim and ethnic Arabic nations the Syrians can go to.

2) The Jews didn't have a history of extremists who blew up schools and shopping malls, decapitated journalists and Christians on camera, gang-raped schoolgirls and murdered or disfigured the ones who argued.

But if you really want, I'm sure we can arrange to deliver a 22-40 year old Syrian male to your house for your safe keeping. Thanks for your generosity.

I've become aware lately of a (renewed) trend of verbal attacks against transracial couples.  Commonly, a white man will be attacked for having a minority girlfriend or wife, as a "shield," or some other morally corrupt crap.

When transracial relationships were less common, this was the venue of a few clearly backward social conservatives.  Now, it's not only in vogue with alleged liberals, it is extolled.

The perpetrator is almost always either single, or in a cisracial relationship, usually white, yet claims some kind of moral authority to place themselves above the transracial couple.

It should be obvious why this is wrong, but I'll explain anyway.

First, if someone is involved transracially and you're not, you hardly have any room to criticize them at all.

Also, this isn't 1950, and those relationships are normal, as they should be. See above. WTF is wrong with you?

Second, your implication is that the only reason a white person is involved transracially is for some sort of dominance game over "lesser" races.  And if that's what you think, then that puts you right there with the people who claim being gay is a "choice," thus admitting they've thought about it.  You're flat out admitting that's what YOU think about romantic involvements with other races.  IOW:  You're a huge fucking racist piece of shit.

Third, your attack impugns the mental and emotional competence of the minority partner. You're stating that they lack the ability to identify racism, or escape from it, and are some sort of helpless prisoner. Now, there's no reason to believe this is any more common among transracial couples than cisracial. You're demeaning the minority member.  IOW:  You're a huge fucking racist piece of shit.  And, since such attacks are overwhelmingly addressed at couples with a white male and minority female, you're a huge fucking sexist piece of shit, who doesn't believe women can make rational decisions for themselves. You have the conceit to believe you know their partner better than they do.  Wrong.

Fourth, in many cases, there are children from these relationships.  Your implication is that these children are somehow less worthy than cisracial children. Hearken back to the medieval practice of referring to out of wedlock children as "bastards" and blaming them for their parents' actions. That's exactly what you're doing.  You're heaping your racism onto innocent children, and maligning their parents in front of them.

If you see a transracial couple and find flaw with it, you need to remember these very simple facts:  They're probably not racist. You almost certainly are. And you need to shut your racist fucking mouth.
