Protesters on the French overseas territory of St Pierre and Miquelon have attacked their MP, by pelting him with seaweed. Stéphane Claireaux took his ordeal stoically. (more…)

Laughter is the best medicine, or so we're told. And a prescribed comedy course could be a new way to help people recover from trauma. The sessions will be free for participants, although presumably not for the UK taxpayer; they get their joy from their tax bill. (more…)

Terra Field, one of Netflix's employee activists who took umbrage at Dave Chapelle's The Closer, has resigned from the company. We know this, because she quietly announced it to Twitter, along with her resignation letter. (more…)
Saving lives: one fat, brown, gay kiss at a time
27 October 2021
According to hyperbolic tosspots at the premiere of Eternals, the representation of fat, non-white, and gay superheroes is affirming and will save lives. (more…)
The Closer
20 October 2021
Today's the day for which Netflix employees, supported by bargain-basement celebrities who I've never heard of, had threatened a walkout in protest against Dave Chappelle's special, The Closer. I had intended to watch it earlier, but postponed it until today to mark this non-event. (more…)
Too damned precious!

Baldwin Cottage is a residence for women and transgendered persons attending Oberlin College and Conservatory, Ohio. The college recently upgraded the heating system in the residence, by installing new radiators. This triggered one of the resident twinks, Peter Fray-Witzer, because the work was conducted by real, biologically-relevant men. The sort of people who install and maintain heating systems. (more…)
Funny, not funny
16 October 2021
Outrage has erupted over Dave Chappelle's latest Netflix special, The Closer, as he took aim at the alphabet soupers—particularly the T—and the preferred pronoun poseurs. Verily, the dudgeon, it was high; and the salt, it flowed freely and in abundance. You cannot make fun of the trans, it seems. (more…)
Bombs or blacklisting
30 August 2021
As someone who doesn't read comics, even I'm aware of Frank Miller. If only through his works that made it to the silver screen: 300; Sin City, and it's sequel, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For; and The Spirit. Although the less said about the last one, the better. (more…)

British actor Riz Ahmed wants an end to toxic Muslim characters…on screen. (more…)

In the same interview in which he announced his surgical diminution, Elliot Page objected to bans on transgender girls playing in girls' sports. (more…)

Those of us who scoffed at Elliot Page's commitment to joining the patriarchy, are laughing on the other side of our faces now. He's only gone and had a titectomy! Although, in true Page style, it's accompanied by a public announcement, in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. I'm assuming that Apple TV+ counts as public. (more…)

Sara Nović, writing on behalf of BBC Equality Matters, admonishes you on The harmful ableist language you unknowingly use. You heartless bastard! (more…)
Tree Story
23 March 2021
We are reminded, or informed, for those of us who were blissfully unaware until now, that Keiynan Lonsdale—an actor best known as someone that I'd never heard of before—self-identifies as a tree…FFS, even my sense of humour isn't so perverse as to make this shit up! Lonsdale unironically prefers tree/treeself pronouns, rather than he/him. And the male population breathes a hearty sigh of relief. (more…)

According to Leox Gyasi's entry in the Star Wars Databank, romantic and sexual encounters are not imperative to him, as he identifies as asexual. Nice and non-threatening then; so, not that IC1 male after all. I wonder whether he has any knackers, or if they were removed when he stepped through LucasFilm's hallowed portal? (more…)
Rock bottom
8 March 2021
I thought that the first of April had come early this year, as Star Wars: The High Republic introduced its main characters in an amateur-hour animation. Leox Gyasi, who looks suspiciously IC1 male to be completely on message at LucasFilm, is the eccentric pilot of a vessel, known simply as the Vessel…navigated by Geode, who appears to be a rock. The rising you gotta be shittin' me! tone sounded like the narrator didn't quite believe what she was saying. I'll give her kudos for not laughing though. (more…)
The name game
15 January 2021
Mithering on behalf of BBC Worklife, Zulekha Nathoo explains Why getting a name right matters. If you can't be bothered to read the whole article, you're not alone. It's just another whinge about mispronunciation of names, and how it's your fault if you struggle with someone's name. (more…)
Gone(ish), but not forgotten

Deadnaming is the practice of referring to a transgender person by the name that they used before they transitioned, even if that's only a trans-lite conversion. So Elliot Page's deadname is Ellen. Using the deadname is considered bad etiquette among the coddled minorities, as is using the wrong pronouns, and those on social media who have nothing constructive to do with their lives take it very seriously. FFS, do these unhinged shitheads ever take the time to actually listen to themselves? Do they have the self-awareness to realise how stupid they sound? (SMH) (more…)
Take it! Like a man!

Kneon (Thom Pratt) at Clownfish TV covered the Ellen/Elliot Page non-story, and received some comments that are predictably similar to my own thoughts. My favourites are copied below, simply for convenience…and some additional commentary. (more…)
Just a regular guy

In what appears to be a desperate attempt to stay relevant in the public consciousness, Ellen Page has come out. Again. Strewth, is she ever in for more than five minutes? (more…)

Way back in the mists of time, we considered the philosophy and psychology of superheroes and superheroism. (more…)
Fear the frost
24 June 2020
Being the wrong side of 50, I am somewhat behind the curve, not that I was ever ahead of it at the best of times. I'm aware of woke, snowflakes, pandering, and SJW, but only today did I discover that Marvel plan to reboot their superhero team, New Warriors, with their first non-binary* character. The character is also black and wears blue. His/her/its/their name? None other than…ummm…Snowflake. (more…)
Fringe syndrome

The results are in, and Tim Vine hasn't won the Dave award for best joke at the Edinburgh Fringe. In fact, he didn't make the top ten shortlist. Was he even there? (more…)
At least they bend their gender
2 March 2019
Former women's swimming Olympic silver medallist, Sharron Davies, has come out; in support, that is, of Martina Navratilova's position that transgender athletes are cheating. Needless to say, the snowflakes are all a'dither, whining that: (more…)
Hubris: how gay!
9 November 2012
In a perhaps unguarded moment during a light-hearted radio interview, New Zealand's Prime Minister John Key referred to a presenter wearing a gay red top. This outraged some who construed it as a slur against the homosexual community. Key later defended himself, stating that he used the word gay to mean weird rather than as a deliberate offence; although the Oxford Dictionary only notes its use in this manner to mean foolish, stupid, or unimpressive.
