Homosexuality is the only 'Victim Privilege' group that anyone can adopt.

Lefties love it's high ranking because they can easily adopt it by putting the word 'queer' in their twitter bio. This can be done even if their claim to fame is having a faggy/skillrex haircut and kissing someone of the same sex at a party once.

RE: The Australian politics thread
The homo supporters in Melbourne are already planning their victory party on Wednesday Nov 15.

This reminds me of the American 2016 election when a big local social event I went to planned for a Hillary's victory with a suffragette's theme, only for it to be BTFO with The Don and MAGA. I had never seen such a quiet party with 300 mostly depressed people.

Let's check where the odds are at on sportsbet.... Big Grin

Trump was polled at 2% behind Clinton.

'No' is 20% behind 'Yes'. I wouldn't take that bet.

RE: The Australian politics thread
My mate from the other day popped around to tell me he deactivated his Facebook account. "I've realised how emotionally-irrational the majority of people seem to be now."

I'd mentioned to him the other day I often think the future is about Non Technological Communication, because you can only really be sure of yourself, and have a limited sureness of others only if you can look them in the eye.

We'd been listening to a track I'd been working on - he said it sounded like it would be 'fantastic' and said I should 'put it out'. I explained doing my own thing not putting it out means not having to navigate a world of "I don't hear a single", "It needs to be more Triple JJJ Hi-Rotation", "It's very [nose wrinkle] classic rock, isn't it?"; then having to put together a band to do it live and dealing with their self-worth issues and persecution fantasies; navigating the manipulative world of promoters and venue owners; the entitlement of audiences who think that paying for music means you personally owe them something; and doe-eyed stalker girls deciding that I somehow deeply-know them trying to force themselves into my life; and demands that I perform at charity events to further the goals of Progressive Interests.

"So, I can do all that with the limited possibility of financial reward, and possibly-hearing from critics and audiences that I've written a great song. Or I can know I've written a great song because I can't bullshit myself, only share it with friends who are interested, and avoid the aggravation entirely by just doing it to enjoy myself."

I explained that it seems to me that most ideas simply aren't worth expressing any more, because of the very-limited possibility of being understood by people in society who are increasingly emotionally-unstable and are quick to anger over even the tiniest ego injury, and believe that is worthy of entirely-destroying another human being for.

As such, I'm entirely-rejecting creating art for an audience. And with that, there's a lessened need to communicate any idea publicly. It's exhausting.

At the time, my mate said it was an 'unnecessarily-dark' outlook, but, after spending a couple of hours trying to keep the peace in Facebook threads last night, he said "I get it now. I was watching my Sister fighting with my Aunt, and then my Mother stepping in, then random people I don't care about inserting themselves into the conversation, and I just thought 'I don't need the aggravation of... exposure..." He paused, searching for the words.

"... to the Tyranny of Shitwitted Opinions?"

He grinned. "See? This is my problem. I can never sum things up in the moment the way you can. You should be on there, arguing for me."

I can see why he'd think intelligence was an advantage in that kind of situation - though I don't have to dumb myself down for him much at all - but I shook my head. "Facts and reason can't sway emotional fury. It's pointless trying to even have the conversation."

"That's what it came down to. Like you said the other day, I realised I don't need the aggravation of these people in my life. Even if my Sister gets gay marriage, she'll still be miserable."

"...because it's in her nature." I finished. It keeps coming back to a feeling I've had lately, that the punishment for sin is believing that sin hasn't punished you.

It just struck me as an interesting coincidence, given how much tranquility I'm finding lately by speaking less but doing more.

Polling is largely useless here but I have friends within the National party who have all but conceded a 'yes' win. There is a lot of backroom corruption with the Libs pushing hard for same sex marriage as well.

The libs in Australia are much like 'cuckservatives' in the US. They are career politicians with the only conservative traits being their economic policies. There's also a high number of gays amongst their ranks. Who knows, maybe a miracle will happen, but the agenda's being pushed from the top down.

It's somewhat ironic that we live in an age whereby we have more access to more information, far more readily than ever before.
Yet so many can't even look or think beyond themselves.

Which is why I could attempt to point out to the gay marriage advocates that the more they actively or indirectly diversify society, the more fragile it becomes & the more likely to collapse in on itself.
If I recall, I believe it had something to do with foundations of sand as opposed to stone...

Otherwise, seems the Yes side are at least wary of the Brexit / Trump type outcome & aren't being too cavalier.
It'll probably end up with a small majority at this rate.

Years ago when social media was young, a mate of mine made me a facebook account but I hardly used it. I made a Myspace page to keep in touch with some bands I know. One band page led to other similar bands and so on. It was a gold mine of great music. A genuine network for whatever your interest. Some of the bands I found through Myspace are still some of my favourite bands today, their members great guys I like to catch up with whenever I can.

Pretty soon Myspace started to get quiet, while FB was booming. Everybody's FB page was just a bunch of mundane shit. Soon it was photos of their dinner.

My comment at the time was "Give them the world, but all they wanted was a mirror."

RE: The Australian politics thread
Well ABC News has finally been driven to retarded levels of self-destruction.

I was listening to the radio on the way home and they have officially gone from using LGBT to LGBTQI.

I should be an old hand at this by now but I'll admit, I actually had to look it up.

Q = Queer and Questioning.

Queer = "Gay is not special enough for me so I'm not Straight and I'm not gay but something even more special, which I will gladly lecture you on at length regarding the impossibly complex nuances."

Questioning = "questioning of one's gender, sexual identity, sexual orientation, or all three." Or in other words "I'm holding out until I can determine what the ultimate combination of victim statuses is."

I = Intersex, defined by being born with any of several variations in sex characteristics including chromosomes, gonads, sex hormones, or genitals that "do not fit the typical definitions for male or female bodies". Paging PT Barnum.

So, several times the female newscaster had to reference LGBT with the additional QI at the end and in every instance it was painfully apparent that she was having trouble getting through the whole thing without sounding like she was competing in a spelling contest.

There was a strained desperation in her voice that suggested she somehow knew it was a bridge too far.

I'm on this path right now too AB & I feel you here big time.

My garden is going off, my grow house booming with seedlings, my new dog & I are bonding beautifully, I have a developing appreciation for classical music, never read more books, have a fire burning in one of the 2 chimaneas out back at all times I'm home. I talk with almost no-one except my housemate & a very small circle of friends.

I'm as happy as a pig in shit.

You think that's bad?

Toronto "Pride" (even typing that makes me cringe) came up with this doozy of an acronym: LGBTTIQQ2SA - lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, intersex, queer, questioning, two-spirited, and allies.

Australian Federal Police: 2017 Entry Level Recruits - Special Measure for Women
Some more nonsense from downunder, following hot on the heals of the decision to feminise our military. One of the more scholarly members of this forum might like to research the background of this further, and write an article over at ROK:

https://www.apsjobs.gov.au/SearchedNotic...713798%3A1 (archived: http://archive.is/asObK)

Quote:SEEKING MORE WOMEN

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) is committed to creating, fostering and maintaining a diverse workforce that reflects the community we serve.

As outlined in the AFP’s Diversity and Inclusion Strategy, diversity is a core element of modern policing and is fundamental to our future capabilities, effectiveness, and our ability to respond. In support of this we offer excellent career opportunities for women, with a particular focus on the operational roles. We are working towards an intake of 50% women and 50% men on entry level recruit programs.

In the most recent recruitment process, the AFP was overwhelmed with interest for the entry level recruit roles, which was terrific. Many high calibre applicants applied and are continuing to progress through this process. However, to deliver on our diversity goals WE NEED MORE WOMEN, and are therefore calling for interested women to apply for this special measure* – women only recruitment process, for entry level recruits.

With a recent influx of muslim immigrants I can't think of a better time to start hiring on issues other than merit, or perhaps even fail to meet necessary recruitment levels when a certain gender decides they're not interested.

If you live in Western Sydney and you're not kebab, now is the time to move.

Where to? There are many places left to go. All I'm seeing across the West are losing battles for our side. Trump was the only glimmer of hope and since then there has been nothing but pushback and disappointment. I'm not a pessimist by any measure but I think at this point the jig is up for Western civilization.

Western civilisation is not going anywhere.

All we have done is condemned ourselves to a period of brutal bloodshed where we will have to leave aside our humanity and engage in a rather inhumane struggle to regain our lands.

Zel might be right, or instead the elites might lose their grip and the resultant war will be far less organised (as would be the result). But the idea that these moronic savages from Arabia much less Africa are a serious threat to the long term survival of Europeans or Western civilisation is a misplaced fear.

^I agree. The only thing some westerners are fleeing to is a greater promise of safety that doesn't compromise their lifestyle too extensively.

My state barely has a handful of muslims, and most of them will leave after being here for one winter and "doing their time" where they were dropped. This place has a population that's white as the driven snow and while it may not have a strong Christian representation any more the muslims aren't going to see that. As far as they're concerned white equals Christian. As such my state is extremely safe from what you might term "ethnic strife".

But, my state is also dirt poor and highly rural.

So there's still plenty of safety to be had in the West. The question is as ever what you're willing to $acrifice to enjoy it.
