I believe that children are our future

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Sunday, November 15, 2009,
Fellow travellers, we often hear from the reactionary right that academia has been overtaken by the left. Nothing could be further from the truth. Universities across the globe are still completely dominated by eeevil white peenie-wavers who are hell bent - or should that be straight? - on oppressing women, minorities and Gaia.

Take this latest so-called "experiment": Psychologists in California have looked into how young children cope with fears both real and imagined. They were read stories...

Feeding the forces of darkness

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Saturday, November 14, 2009,
While our new Prime Minister has been a vast improvement over the last, sometimes he's just as appalling and reactionary. Take this new directive, encouraging women to breastfeed their babies for the first six months.

This is a clear attempt to enslave women yet again. Surely, it would be much more empowering for them if the men were made to perform this duty instead.

The Liberal Party, Zoo Weekly and Claire Werbeloff

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Monday, November 9, 2009,
Fellow travellers, I'm sure many of you will remember Claire Werbeloff, who enjoyed a brief period of "stardom" after pretending to witness a shooting at Kings Cross.

Well, she has made the news again! It seems that she has been asked to be a Liberal candidate for the seat of Bradfield. As this article says, that appalling men's magazine Zoo Weekly has offered to pay for her to run.

You know the Liberal Party is simply beyond hope when they are commissioning these appallingly sexist peenie wav...

Conservative "cave man" conspiracy!

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Friday, November 6, 2009,
Fellow travellers, I'm sure that you are all sick and tired of climate change deniers insisting that those determined to stop the impending global catastrophe actually want to take humanity "back to the Stone Age" and "make us all cavemen". This is a contemptible and utterly false accusation! (But even if it weren't, what would be wrong with living more in harmony with nature, like our distant ancestors did?)

In any case, the many reich-wingers in the media and politics never miss a chance to ...

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 ...

The Melbourne Cup, the race that reveals a nation

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Wednesday, November 4, 2009,
Fellow travelers, it's almost appropriate that the horse who won this year's Melbourne Cup was called Shocking, because I found the whole exercize shocking in the extreme. In fact it wasn't just shocking. It was appalling!

Firstly, it was extremely elitist, as races invariably are. Finding the fastest horse was highly discriminatory, since horses have a lot more to offer than just speed. And I'm sure they don't judge themselves merely by that criterion. Were their values considered? Of course ...

Are bikinis appropriate attire for a demo?

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Monday, November 2, 2009,
That appalling oil spill off the Western Australian coast has prompted a brave protest in which sassy sisters in bikinis covered themselves in oil and paraded in front of the Perth offices of the evil corporation responsible for the catastrophe.

While I heartily endorse the statement that these feisty feminist fellow travellers were making with their protest, did they really have to confirm the dominant paradigm of phallocentric lookism to make their point? While they weren't quite participati...
