Ban Drag Queens From Facebook!

And their Native American friends too! Just no! LOL. I suspect that the current purge of …bear names could be cross-fire from the person who has been reporting 100s of people at once, and started this whole thing…seems the search for ‘bear’ was the recent one. Really Farcebook, you need to get your reporting shit sorted, because it seems homo- and transphobes are having a field day…as well as possibly racists and the rest of their bitter trollkind.

Cassetteboy Cameron’s Rap

Lose Yourself in the Cuts woah, Benefits! Freeze! Sugar, Right Lines Pure as the Driven Low…Cassetteboy is back and on form with this Tory Conference video. Everything Dave says here is sadly true. (via Steve SPR)

And as the comment points out, as of this week parody videos are now legal in the UK. Well until someone challenges you..

Here come the New Atheists

“If you want to prove people you can be good without God, then look in the mirror and start with yourself”

Love Jamie Kilstein and his diatribes against the new breed of Dawkins atheists (usually in my experience Men’s Rights #gamergate 4chan dweebs, conspiracy types and general nutjobs). It needs to be said, you can’t pull the moral superiority card if you’re a 20 year old in some basement typing out how much you want to destroy the life of Zoe Quinn and other SJW/’radfems’, or how all Muslims are evil, or how although you hate religion you don’t like those queers either.

Yeah, some radical feminists do deserve challenging on their stance on trans*/queer issues, and a few of the ‘SJW’ types are politically loose cannons and not helping especially around LGBTQ issues, but straight white males don’t get to do that, either. As he says in another video to men everywhere – ‘don’t be a dick’.

And predictably the comments sections are full of these idiots fapping the ‘not all men’, ‘true Scotman’, ‘Mansplaining’, ‘#Misandry’ and ‘you’re gay’ to a frazzle. Sad. No. One. Cares. Poor little rich boys…scarily some of them have guns, though.

School of Life – Epicurus

Love this video from School of Life about Epicurus. That does sound great – living with friends, doing stuff you want to do, not worrying about money. Funny how the Church came along and converted them into monasteries, because hey, that layer of guilt was missing :-P

Also liked this old series by Alain de Botton, now on YouTube. Socrates is a hero of mine, I try and challenge things with his logic, and certainly use the approach to thinking and philosophy.

And the series also has more on Epicurus – I’ve worked in that room at St Lukes in a previous life ;-)

EDIT: The Philosophy of Happiness videos might not be available in your area…Germany works fine, but not the UK. Why you should have a VPN!
