John Gordon's song "Australia (Whore of the World)" and feminism

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Friday, April 8, 2011,
Fellow travellers, as you all know, Western society is based upon prejudice and bigotry. Sadly, almost every established institution we have is there to serve the whims of appalling white male peenie wavers. That is why our "civilization" is rife with discrimination and oppression.

We on the left certainly have no lack of targets to subvert and ultimately destroy (in a compassionate way, of course). But the fact that there are just sooo many of them can complicate this process somewhat.

The serious side of Joseph Guiso's marriage to Honey the labrador

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Saturday, December 4, 2010,
Fellow travellers, here is a story that should give those of us who truly abhor speciesism a little more hope for a better world: A man in Toowoomba called Joseph Guiso has "married" his animal companion Honey, a labrador.

The ceremony was conducted more or less as a joke. But remember that "many a true word was spoke in jest". Also, not so long ago people were openly laughing at things that eventually came to pass - women getting the vote, and gays in the military, for example.

And the fact th...

Women found to be greener than men. More female scientists, please

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Wednesday, November 17, 2010,
Fellow travellers, I am not at all surprised that women are deemed to be the greener gender. They are much closer to nature than men, and Gaia is a sassy sister, after all.

They are also more likely to believe in global warming, and that it is a serious problem. This shows that, contrary to so many sexist stereotypes, they are clearly much more rational than men.

But when I say rational, I don't mean the fake male kind of "rationalism". You know, the white coat-wearing, detached, cold, clinica...

Environmental and gender aspects of Chilean miner story

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Thursday, October 14, 2010,
Fellow travellers, I know that a lot of people (even some on the left) are now celebrating the release of those 33 Chilean miners after their "terrible ordeal" under the ground.

Now, I don't want to condemn people outright for feeling a sense of relief. However, I do think it should be remembered that these men aren't simply heroes. After all, they are employees of a massive and hugely profitable mining company and therefore complicit in the rape of Gaia.

Also, anyone who is concerned about ge...

Academy Awards ambivalence

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Tuesday, March 9, 2010,
Fellow travellers, I am heartened to know that sassy sister Kathryn Bigelow won the Oscar for Best Director, and her film won Best Picture. This is certainly a highly empowering development for women all across the globe. And it's a nice coincidence that it just happened to occur at around the same time as International Women's Day.

But I am frankly appalled that she dedicated her win to "the women and men in the military who risk their lives on a daily basis in Iraq and Afghanistan. May they...

The age of bizarre

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Thursday, November 5, 2009,
Fellow travellers, you may have read about this strange event, in which the reactionary, peenie-waving London Mayor "Bonking Boris" Johnson saved Franny Armstrong - climate change activist and director of the searing film The Age of Stupid - from an attack by several young women.

I'm sure that this "brave" act was completely unnecessary. Ms Armstrong surely could have protected herself had he not arrived so "heroically" on the scene. That's why these comments are so bizarre: "He was my knight ...
