NO SOCIAL JUSTICE NO PEACE

The doctor will never be a woman. There are plenty of women in the show that are admirable role models. I think you're just full ofsh it. Stop pushing your american views onto Doctor Who, a BRITISH show, with BRITISH values. It's unbelievable how obnoxious and hypocritical feminists are, especially you third-wave feminists. Always spouting "equal rights" but, "Can't hit me, cause I'm a girl!" You probably won't respond to this because you know I'm right and the whovianfeminism stance is weak.

This was so beautiful that I had to put it up on my wall and examine it as if it were an exquisite piece of art.

"Manpain" by Anonymous

Above we have a quintessential example of early 21st Century prose by an aggrieved man. The author of this piece is unknown, but we can surmise by his inability to properly say “shit” to a woman and his assurance that he likes “admirable” female characters that he is most likely a “Nice Guy.”

The anonymous author employs deliberate obtuseness in order to provoke a reaction from his audience. Notice how he pretends no British individual supports the idea of a woman portraying the Doctor, despite clear evidence to the contrary, even amongst actors who have portrayed the titular character on the show. Then there is the stunning self-centeredness regarding his perception of third wave feminism; he is only interested in equality it grants him the “right” to hit the women whose arguments make him so incoherently angry that he is unable to rationally reply.

His final challenge attempts to trap the reader. Do we respond and grant him the audience and validation he so desperately seeks, or do we ignore him and let him believe he has won? But perhaps we have a third option: to turn the focus back on him and examine how his comments display his deep insecurity in his own sense of masculinity, something he feels can only be reclaimed by challenging a girl on the internet to a fight and preemptively declaring victory because he fears he cannot engage with her on an intellectual level.

a work of goddamn art oh my god

Les responsables de Ferguson en étaient venus à dépendre de plus en plus des amendes pour le fonctionnement de la ville. Environ 20 % du budget municipal de 12 millions de dollars viennent des amendes, ce qui en fait la deuxième ressource de la commune. Pour augmenter cette recette autant que possible, les autorités avaient encouragé la police à verbaliser autant que possible, en fait à saigner les travailleurs et les pauvres.

Des reportages ont montré comment la ville a adopté de plus en plus d’arrêtés qui donnent aux policiers le pouvoir d’arrêter et de verbaliser les gens sous n’importe quel prétexte. La police met régulièrement des amendes aux passants pour avoir traversé hors des passages piétons. Un arrêté permet même de mettre des amendes aux jeunes qui portent des pantalons baggy (amples). Et il est notoire que les policiers arrêtent toute vieille voiture, juste pour trouver quelque chose à verbaliser.

[…]

Qui dit mandat d’arrêt dit possibilité d’emprisonnement. Et, parce que la plupart des autres villes de la région font la même chose, des gens ordinaires peuvent avoir des mandats d’arrêt dans plusieurs endroits. Donc, une fois qu’ils sont arrêtés, ils font des peines non seulement dans une prison, mais dans plusieurs, étant transférés d’une prison à l’autre, etc.

Autrement dit, des gens ordinaires, qui essaient seulement d’aller au travail ou au magasin, sont traités comme des criminels, entraînant souvent toute leur famille.

En protestant contre le meurtre de Michael Brown, les habitants de Ferguson ont braqué les projecteurs sur cette pratique sordide. À des degrés divers, dans tout le pays, les municipalités réduisent les impôts sur les sociétés et cherchent à les compenser par des tarifs et des amendes oppressifs, qui visent la classe ouvrière et les pauvres.

États-Unis, Ferguson : faire reculer les vautours

Je cite cet article parce que je n’avais pas entendu parler de cette pratique auparavant. Néanmoins, l’article passe complètement sous silence le fait qu’il ne s’agit pas de n’importe quels “gens ordinaires” qui vivent cette pression… Le racisme y est passé sous silence. (Notons que l’article est initialement paru “dans Spark, du 15 septembre 2014, bimensuel édité par l’organisation trotskyste américaine du même nom”.) Gommer le racisme pour ne parler que du classisme est tellement aberrant… L’intersectionnalité, c’est pas que pour les féministes, les amis.
