I would love to be exempt from Jury Duty, though perhaps not for the reason that I "wouldn't understand the terms." I have a hard time making decisions in day-to-day life, so I think I would have an even harder time making such an important decision as to whether someone is guilty of a cri...

Once, when I heard the word "Conservative," my first thought would have been of a person in a starched suit, looking down on me for not conforming to their ideal of the perfect American, which would probably be a devout churchgoing independently wealthy CEO who is married with children. Wh...

Getting back to the topic: Benny, the landlord, is usually cast with a black actor, so another thing people complain about is that the show depicts the white characters as poor and the black guy as their landlord. This is not how things usually are, these people say. However, there have been black ...

Here's one from today. I'm on Photoshop, drawing what is supposed to be a piece of cute, simple Disneyland vehicle fanart. The vehicle has a door on one side and I realized I put the door on the wrong side. So I flipped the canvas horizontally, then looked at the reference photo again and it still l...

anyone who didn't pay rent was a "looter." It was curious to me that what united these people who subscribed to disparate political philosophies was, for some reason, a hatred of fictional poor artists. I think there's a general consensus that not being able to pay rent is a civil offence...

So performing artists? yeah I can see how many of them have to survive any way they can to get a gig on Broadway Most of the criticism of Mark came from the idea that he was "privileged" and "entitled," however, one time somebody called him a "looter" (in the Ayn Rand ...

I talked before I could walk and I could read at a very young age. When my first kindergarten teacher found out I could already read, she complained to my mother that I would have to be "un-taught" and "re-taught the right way." Luckily, I switched schools after that and got a mu...

Not a thing wrong with embracing a life in the arts - - that is, dirt poor as long as you can make art. A true artist or academic is not driven by money :wink: This is why I found it baffling that a "starving artist"-type character should be so reviled on a discussion group for fans of th...

Critical Race Theory and the ‘Hyper-White’ Jew ...In the critical social justice paradigm, that is how Jews are viewed. Jews, who have never been seen as white by those for whom being white is a moral good, are now seen as white by those for whom whiteness is an unmitigated evil. This reflects the ...

There are ordinary people who accept CRT and don't bully anyone or silence other opinions. I don't mean to suggest that everyone who accepts CRT is a bully. Likewise, as an atheist, I'm aware that there are many religious people who don't use their religion as a pretense to force their views onto o...

Yes, frequently. It's especially frustrating when the person has a very limited time to give me instructions and then leaves, but expects everything to be done how they want it when they come back. Then, I start doing the task and find that everything is more complicated than I expected. It feels li...

Point 2.The central assumption of the field of CRT is —that personal narratives from people of color should be central to academic study of oppression. I can't say how this kind of thing plays out in the halls of academia. I'll leave that to people who have experience in that area. However, may I a...

I feel the same as the OP. I was never that into politics, but I have never felt more alienated from it in my life. The more omnipresent it seems and the more people try to threaten and guilt me into being involved with it, the less I want to do with it.
