As with any deliberate attempt to marginalize any given group, the demonization of the straight male identity starts in early childhood. The classroom has been feminized. Children are demanded to sit quietly for prolonged periods of time, and almost any form of physical activity that tends to be enjoyed by boys, even Tag, are being banned from schools all over the west. So you have a classroom filled with kids with a lot of energy being asked to sit still. The ones that can’t comply to that, which again, is a common masculine trait, are branded mentally ill and medicated. ADHD, while I won’t say it’s a fake disorder, since people who actually have it benefit greatly from treatment, has been over diagnosed to ridiculous levels. It’s to the point that a disorder that has a rate of prevalence of 1–2% (According to the ICD-10 guidelines, which I prefer since the DSM-V tends to be biased towards diagnoses) is being diagnosed to up to 20% or more children in certain areas, of which 3/4 are boys. Given the tremendous variance among states within the US (Anywhere from 5 to 16%) it’s pretty clear this diagnoses is mandated not by the medical community, but by the educational system.
That's the beginning. Good piece, go read.
Got this in the mail today, and it indicates several things:
The Oregon State Police have low standards for acceptable behavior.
They don't think the commoners should be allowed to hold them accountable, because "You don't know what we're dealing with!"
The courts need to make damn sure the cameras in ALL the cars are always working, if they think the actions of our troopers clearly did not violate established procedures or tactics
So OSHA is following the lead of other agencies: "We don't have the authority to do this, but let's see if we can get someone to do it anyway."
Obviously they have too much money and too many personnel if they have this much free time, so their budget should be chopped.
