U. of Pennsylvania teaching assistant admits she discriminates against white male students

Universities in the U.S. that have graduate students employ some of them as teaching assistants (TAs) to help professors teach large (in the number of students) undergraduate courses. The teaching assistants grade students’ exams. In some universities, the TAs also conduct discussion sessions to provide students with opportunities for discussion about the professor’s lectures and course readings which they don’t get in a class with hundreds of students.

Stephanie McKellop is a History Ph.D. student at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn).

Her UPenn web-page says she was a teaching assistant for:

  • The American South: From Civil War to Sunbelt (Spring 2017)
  • History of the American South to the Civil War (Fall 2016)

On October 16, 2017, McKellop posted on her @McKellogs Twitter account (which is now accessible only by her “confirmed followers”) that she employs a race- and gender-based preferential system for calling on her students, favoring black women first, then other people of color, then white women, and last of all, white men, but only if she has to.

If Kellop, as a teaching assistant, blatantly discriminates against white students, especially white men, in calling upon them to speak in class, then it is reasonable for us to suspect that Kellop also discriminates against her white students when it comes to grading their exams.

Swedish ambassador warns democracy is being ‘dismantled’ in Sweden

Håkan Juholt, 55, is a former member of Sweden’s parliament (1994-2016), former leader of Sweden’s center-left Social Democrat party (2011-2012), and Sweden’s new ambassador to Iceland since this September.

In an interview with the Svenska Dagbladet newspaper, Juholt warns that Sweden is “in the process of dismantling democracy” and may be descending into a technocracy or dictatorship.

The Local is an English-language digital news publisher with local editions in Sweden, Germany, France, Spain, Switzerland, Norway, Denmark, Austria and Italy.

The Local‘s edition in Sweden reports on October 17, 2017, that in his interview with Svenska Dagbladet, Håkan Juholt asks about the age of the reporter’s son, and said:

“How old is your son? Four? When he is old he won’t be living in a democracy but in a technocracy, or a dictatorship. It’s sad as hell. I am sorry to say it, but I am 100 percent sure. We are in the process of dismantling democracy.

[…] I don’t think the threat is a dictatorship with tanks rolling on Sergel’s Square (a well-known square in central Stockholm), but an expert rule where we do not let the citizens’ values govern the country. Democracy is slipping through our fingers. Fewer people want to be elected, the parties are toning down their ideology. Sure, I see a risk that it may become a dictatorship in the long run.”

Juholt did not elaborate on the comments, which have sparked criticism in Sweden from both sides of the political aisle:

  • Karin Enström, foreign politics spokesperson of the conservative Moderate party, the largest opposition party in parliament, said: “As ambassador and thus Sweden’s top representative in Iceland, Håkan Juholt demonstrates a strange attitude towards the country he is supposed to represent.”
  • Culture and Democracy Minister Alice Bah Kuhnke said: “It’s remarkable. It is the role of ambassadors, and the role of the government, to deliver an accurate image of our country and promote our country in the world.”
  • Margot Wallström, Minister for Foreign Affairs and former Deputy Prime Minister, said she would not “argue with one of my ambassadors” in public and that Juholt “will probably have to explain his thoughts himself.” Then Wallström made a veiled threat against Juholt, saying “He will probably also soon learn, I would think, what it means to be an ambassador.

Note that all three critics of Juholt are powerful females.

No wonder Swedish men willingly don pink pussyhats:

On March 7, 2017, to show their solidarity with International Women’s Day, the board of directors of Byggnads, a construction workers trade union in Stockholm, Sweden, tweeted this picture of themselves

Actually, if anything, Juholt is being overly optimistic.

Sweden’s democracy has already been dismantled. See my post of October 12, 2017, “Swedish dental hygienist was fired for reporting 80% of child migrants are adults”.

This is Hollyweird: Actress Bella Thorne wears porn-covered jumpsuit on red carpet

belle thorne

With all the sexual harassment scandals coming out of Hollywood, is it really good timing to wear an outfit with pictures of pornographic posters and your breasts so exposed? Bella Thorne must be missing a sensitivity chip.

From NY Post: By now, it’s clear that Bella Thorne​ isn’t afraid to embrace racy looks, from her Instagram posts to her latest GQ Mexico editorial.

More recently, the 20-year-old actress even managed to put a sexy spin on one of the season’s hottest trends: a pant suit.

The sultry starlet donned her graphic two-piece to the LA premiere of her new Netflix movie “The Babysitter” on Wednesday. From a distance, the braless ensemble’s print echoed vintage newspaper or comic book clippings.

On closer inspection, though, one sees that its black-and-white pattern was made from retro porno posters, emblazoned accordingly with such phrases as “Massive T - ts,” “Whores!” “Nasty & Horny Sluts” and “Free Sex.”

No one ever said Hollywood was known for having any sense of decency or standards.

Isn’t this special: Justin Trudeau is raising his kids to be feminists

Questions for Justin:

From what I’ve seen in the world, women face unequal obstacles every day because the left’s definition of feminism is enabling men and women to silence, demean and belittle people of both genders. Their quest for power is silencing vulnerable voices every day.

From Marie Claire (by Justin Trudeau): I am in politics because every day, I get to work to make the world a little better—for my kids, and for yours. I’m proud of the dedicated work our team is doing to make Canada more open, more inclusive, more just—and gender equal. But some of the most important work I do is not as a political leader, but as a parent. Every day, at home, I have the astonishing and humbling opportunity—together with my wife Sophie—to nurture empathy, compassion, self-love, and a keen sense of justice in our three kids.

I am so exceptionally proud of my daughter Ella-Grace. She’s growing up kind, super-smart, a passionate debater, open to the world around her. I love Ella, and I worry—because as a father, son, husband, and citizen, I witness the unequal obstacles women and girls face every day. It’s 2017, yet in Canada and around the world, women and girls still face violence, discrimination, stereotypes that limit them, and unequal opportunities that keep them from achieving their dreams. It is maddening to me that my brilliant, compassionate daughter will grow up in a world where, despite everything she is as a person, there will still be people who won’t take her voice seriously, who will write her off—simply because of her gender.

I can—and do—work every day to shift those inequalities, even incrementally. But I also know that the most powerful medicine will come from Ella herself. Sophie and I can’t be there with Ella at every hard moment of her life—to protect her when someone makes her feel small, to advocate for her when someone isn’t listening—even if we wish we could. (Parents will relate.) So the best thing we can do is to help Ella learn, unshakeably, that she is enough, exactly as she is. That she has immense power, and intrinsic worth, which no one can ever take away from her. That she has a strong voice, which she can use, and trust.

That means raising her feminist. Full stop.

I’m eternally lucky to have an amazing partner in that project. Sophie continues to inspire and challenge me, and a few years ago, she helped me reach a turning point. I was talking about teaching Ella that she can be anything she wants to be. Sophie said, “That’s great—but how are you raising your sons to be strong advocates for women and girls, too?”

Gender equality is not only an issue for women and girls. All of us benefit when women and girls have the same opportunities as men and boys—and it’s on all of us to make that a reality. Our sons have the power and the responsibility to change our culture of sexism, and I want Xavier and Hadrien—when he’s a little older—to understand that deeply. But I want, too, to help them grow into empathetic young people and adults, strong allies who walk through the world with openness, love, and a fierce attachment to justice. I want my sons to escape the pressure to be a particular kind of masculine that is so damaging to men and to the people around them. I want them to be comfortable being themselves, and being feminists—who stand up for what’s right, and who can look themselves in the eye with pride.

Feminism is not just the belief that men and women are equal. It’s the knowledge that when we are all equal, all of us are more free. It’s a relentless commitment to look for ourselves in each other, because that’s how we start to build a world where everyone is treated with respect and recognition. And it’s the unwavering conviction that all people have the same rights and freedoms—that my rights are your rights, and it is only when your rights are fully protected that mine are, too.

That world doesn’t exist yet. But it can be built—by people who have a strong sense of justice and empathy, who stand up for the rights of others, and who seek out their own unique ways of creating more inclusive communities.

That’s the world we want to live in. That’s the world we want our kids to live in. To raise our kids feminist is to recognize that they ALL have a part to play to build that world. To raise our kids feminist is to honor their future, because they have the responsibility—and the power—to shape it for the better.

Proggies enraged: House passes 20-week abortion ban, with Trump White House support

baby at 20 weeks

A baby at 20 weeks, from BabyCenter.com:

“Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He’s also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel – about the length of a large banana. Your baby is swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He’s also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in his bowels, and you’ll see it in his first soiled diaper. “

From TheBump.com:

Your 20-week fetus now has working taste buds. He or she is gulping down several ounces of amniotic fluid each day—that’s significantly more than before. If you haven’t already had your mid-pregnancy ultrasound, you will very soon, since this prenatal test happens between weeks 18 and 22. This is a detailed 20-week ultrasound—you’ll see parts of baby you might not have dreamed possible, including the chambers of his or her heart, the kidneys, and the brain hemispheres. The technician will also likely be able to tell you baby’s gender, so let them know if you want to find out if you’re having a boy or a girl.”

But, but…reproductive rights!!!!!

From Fox News: The Republican-controlled House on Tuesday approved a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy — a measure backed by the Trump White House but still facing long odds in the Senate. The measure passed 237 to 189.

“So often we get caught up in the policies of this issue and we forget that these are babies, for goodness sake,” Alabama Republican Rep. Martha Roby said in a speech on the House floor. “They feel pain and we need to protect them.”

The measure faced strong opposition from abortion-rights lawmakers.

“When abortion is banned, it does not go away,” Oregon Democratic Rep. Suzanne Bonamici said on the floor before the vote. “It drives women to unsafe back alleys and to dangerous self-induced abortion.”

The White House said Monday that it “strongly supports” the efforts to “secure critical pro-life protections” and that the bill provides children with the “stronger protections” they deserve.

“The bill, if enacted into law, would help to facilitate the culture of life to which our Nation aspires,” the White House also said in a statement. “Additionally, the bill would promote a science-based approach to unborn life, as recent advancements have revealed that the physical structures necessary to experience pain are developed within 20 weeks of fertilization.”

The measure, if enacted into law, would allow the procedure after 20 weeks in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother and would not penalize women. However, it would criminalize other abortions after 20 weeks and punish abortion providers with a maximum five-year jail sentence.

The landmark 1973 Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade protects women’s right to have an abortion. However, more than a dozen states now ban them after 20 weeks.

“It’s science: unborn babies feel pain by at least 20 weeks. Late, dismemberment abortions are too extreme for America. #TheyFeelPain,” bill sponsor Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., tweeted ahead of the vote Monday.

Franks’ bill enjoyed the support of fellow conservatives in the GOP conference and from the influential Susan B. Anthony List pro-life group.

However, the bill needs the unlikely support of at least eight Democrats to pass in the narrowly GOP-controlled Senate.

South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham has companion legislation that could be introduced as early as Tuesday, a congressional source told Fox News.

Senate Democrats rejected a similar House bill in 2015.

“20 week abortion bans are: unpopular, unconstitutional, part of the agenda to ban ALL abortion,” tweeted Planned Parenthood.

Feminists are insufferable: Actress Brie Larson says “To live as a woman is to live on the defense”

brie larson

Brie Larson: One incredible heroine…

Brie Larson is an actress from California. She won an academy award for the 2015 movie, Room (never heard of it). She also apparently is unable to tell a guy to bug off. Ain’t feminism grand?

From Hollywood.com: Brie Larson detailed an uncomfortable experience with a TSA agent as she revealed that living as a woman means “living life on the defense”.

The 28-year-old actress took to Twitter to tell her followers about the incident that occurred at an airport recently, writing: “I merely smiled at a TSA agent and he asked for my phone number. To live life as a woman is to live life on the defense.”

While many fans sympathized with Brie, others were less understanding, with one person writing: “OH NO! A guy asked for your number. You poor thing. Women be complaining they don’t find a good guy, but complain when dudes ask for their # (number).”

However, Room star Brie wasn’t willing to take that, and hit back: “You do realize you’re blaming me for a situation I did not ask to be in? A situation that made me uncomfortable?”

She then continued: “I hope you take the time to learn more about the experience of women. It’s real + scary sometimes and people like you can make it better.”

Brie’s remarks came after she denounced producer Harvey Weinstein following claims of sexual abuse against him from actresses and female employees. After the news broke, she tweeted: “As always, I stand with the brave survivors of sexual assault and harassment. It’s not your fault. I believe you.”

4th woman accuses director Roman Polanski of child-rape

Director Roman Polanski, 84, is a fugitive from justice.

In 1977, Polanski was arrested and charged with raping a 13-year-old girl named Samantha Geimer. He pled guilty to the charge of statutory rape, but fled from the United States to Paris before he could be sentenced. He has lived in exile in Europe ever since.

It turns out Roman Polanski is a serial child-rapist.

John Nolte reports for Breitbart, Oct. 3, 3017, that a fourth woman has come forth, accusing Polanski of raping her when she was a minor.

According to The New York Times, 61-year-old former actress Renate Langer filed a complaint with the Swiss police accusing Polanski of raping her on two occasions, the first time in 1972 when she was just 15. Langer says the sexual assault took place when she was visiting the director at his home in Gstaad after he’d expressed an interest in her for a film. The following month, with the promise of a movie role and an apology, he lured her into another rape.

In addition to Langer and Geimer, Polanski is also accused by:

Born in Paris of agnostic Polish Jewish parents, Polanski said he’s an atheist in an interview about his most famous film, Rosemary’s Baby. (Wikipedia)

John Nolte points to the hypocrisy of feminists and Hollywood:

Roman Polanski remains the Great White Hypocrisy of America’s oh-so woke, leftwing feminists. An Oscar-winner who also happens to be a fugitive child rapist, he is also a cause célèbre among Hollywood’s beautiful people….

You see, the sophisticated left wants us to forgive and forget Roman’s crimes — kind of like the way they want us to forgive and forget the myriad of accusations against former President Bill Clinton.

In the wake of his heinous 1977 crime, countless self-proclaimed male and female “feminists” have worked with, celebrated, and defended Polanski.

This fourth accuser will change nothing.

Indeed. Where’s the “social justice” outrage for Polanski’s victims and the countless other victims of Hellywood pedophiles?
