@CynicalContrarian

If they have infinite money to do those horrible movies. Then Hollywood is probably just a money laundering operation.

From Philip Greenspun’s Weblog
Quote:Liberal arts colleges running out of woke white men?
November 25, 2019

The financial struggles of New England liberal arts colleges have been in the news lately. "Marlboro planning to give campus and endowment to Emerson College" describes the end of 73 years of operation in Southern Vermont. "Can small liberal arts colleges survive the next decade?" (Christian Science Monitor)

A friend who has worked at the highest levels of college governance said that these bastions of righteousness in which white males are blamed for most things are having difficulty recruiting white males. Why does that matter? “Once the men stop attending,” he noted, “then women don’t want to enroll.”

Marlboro has a 56-percent female student population (US News), which is right at the national average (“Why Men Are the New College Minority” (Atlantic)). Hampshire College, whose stress is profiled in the CS Monitor, is at 62 percent female (collegefactual.com).

A teacher at Marlboro:
He brings an intersectional lens grounded in social justice praxis to the classroom and is passionate about racial, gender and LGBTQ justice and issues of representation in film. Brad believes that the Western film canon is essentially a survey of what bell hooks calls “the imperialist white-supremacist capitalist patriarchy.” Any creative work that we do must reckon with this history of oppression, extract from it what serves us, and dismantle and discard what does not.

Hampshire College’s Commitment to Diversity:
At Hampshire diversity encompasses multiple and intersecting identities including but not limited to race, class, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, religious expression, physical and mental abilities, military and veteran status, and political expression.

We aspire to foster an inclusive community of individuals who share a commitment to all forms of anti-oppression, social justice, respectful discourse, and engagement.


It doesn’t sound as though a white male wearing an MAGA hat would be considered welcome (“respectful”) diversity! Thus, these schools are fighting over the handful of young men who are (a) rich enough to pay tuition for a non-vocational degree, (b) sympathetic to the idea that they are perpetrating abuse of women, minorities, etc.

One could argue that a liberal arts college whose male-female ratio is right at the national average of 44-56 should be doing fine. However, consider the female customer. Why should she pay 3-4X the price of a state school if the gender ID ratio is no better (from her point of view) at the expensive liberal arts college?

Is this the 'wokest' Pirelli Calendar EVER?
Emma Watson, Kirsten Stewart and Claire Foy lead a bunch of grumpy-looking Juliets after tyre brand continues move away from pin-up pics


Pirelli Calendar, launched by the tyre giant in 1964, was once synonymous with racy images and nude models
Lara Stone, Kate Moss, Amy Schumer, Lily Cole and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have all stripped off
The 2020 calendar features A-listers Kristen Stewart, Emma Watson and Claire Foy as Shakespeare's Juliet
The women are all fully clothed and are captured posing in everything from denim jackets to period costume

The scenes with the black woman look awful. Hopefully it tanks.

Oddly enough, they named the movie that will likely kill the Bond franchise "No Time to Die".

It gets worse and worse:

Pirelli 2016:

You cannot even blame Serena Williams for it since she likely wouldn't mind be depicted in a feminine way, but not in 2016.

Not only that.
The Daniel Craig Bond series seems to be moving away from a realistic, serious tone, to a more clownish Roger Moore Bond type tone...

I'm guessing that because of the fan backlash that the trailers for the Bond movie are going to be heavy on Daniel Craig while the film itself is going to be considerably heavier on his black, female replacement. In fact, that trailer probably covers most of his presence in the film.

God demands of Man responsibility. God demands of Woman vulnerability. These are their curse and blessing alike. Libertianism is to Man as Feminism is to Woman.

The 2020 is not hot like the 1960 girl, but she is a significant improvement over 2016, so at least it's progress.
