First of all, people have “sex.” Words have “gender.”
Sex comes in male and female. Gender, a grammatical term is whatever you need it to me.
Secondly, it appears the War on Boys is accompanied by a War on Girls as Harvard punishes members of Greek letter societies, banning them from leadership in university recognized clubs and refusing to consider them for fellowships.
Harvard, founded to form Yankee America’s clergymen, was single-sex for most of its storied existence. Co-eds were forced on Harvard in 1977 by second wave feminists. To be fair, the school abandoned its Christianity by the end of the 19th C. It’s been riding on fumes, moving only for the momentum of its social capital and goodwill among the old New England families.
Boy Scouts pay attention to this story. This is the future for your beloved institution! First girls are imposed on you but your right to avoid them is tolerated. Eventually, forced-integration is imposed by force. You either like it or lump it. Actually, I’ve heard that from more than one thick-skulled employee of the Boy Scouts of America corporation.
I wonder if they are Harvard men.
From the Harvard Crimson propaganda organ:
Harvard’s chapter of the Delta Gamma sorority is closing its doors — making it the first single-gender group to shut down in response to the College’s social group penalties.
The national Delta Gamma organization announced the move in a press release Thursday and explicitly cited the sanctions as the impetus for the decision.
The College’s policy, which took effect with the Class of 2021, bars members of single-gender final clubs, fraternities, and sororities from holding leadership positions in recognized student groups, captaining varsity athletic teams, and receiving College endorsement for a number of prestigious fellowships.
“We respect the chapter’s decision and understand that the University’s sanctions resulted in an environment in which Delta Gamma could not thrive,” Wilma Johnson Wilbanks, Delta Gamma’s national president, wrote in a press release. “We sincerely hope this changes in the future.”
SJWs use a standard playbook in their destruction of our society including their recent take-down of the Boy Scouts Incorporated. They aren’t especially creative and they are not smart — just persistent.
This article describes a generalized framework learned from #GamerGate which defeated the SJW attack and eventually led to popularization of “meme warfare” as used during the Trump campaign.
Those who made a formal study of communist history and methods will recognize it as an application of Gramscianism, the Long March through the Institutions. It is not as violent as Alinskism but it attracts dogooders eager to prove their validity to academics and media gatekeepers. This is the source of its power.
In another video, Sir Ethan mentioned that he hoped Jeremy from TheQuartering would join him in an online stream about this, so hopefully we’ll get his insight into this at some point.
Since publishing my initial blog post which outlined The Phases of a Geeker Gate, I’ve received feedback and criticism from Ethan Van Sciver, Veeh, and of course, World Class Bullshitters, among others. So I’m going to update these Phases taking into account that feedback and criticism, and adding a few additional thoughts of my own.
But, this will probably always be a work in progress as SJW tactics shift and change, so I still invite and encourage suggestions, insight, criticism, debate, and feedback of all kinds from others.
Again, I want to stress, that my primary interest is in film and television. So others that are more deeply involved in comics, novelizations, video games, board games, role playing games, card games, etc., may have additional insight.
To understand the Charlie Foxtrot that is Boy Scouts Company Inc., one must understand the mind of the self-absorbed and useless Baby Boomers that have run the corporation for thirty years.
Here is an article from 2000 — practically in another era of history — that mentions the Boy Scouts in passing as one example of proof American society was not declining at all. It was merely unfairly judged.
Today, we call people like the author “cucks” after the infamous cuckoo bird that tricks other breeds into raising its young after murdering their biological children. If that does not describe the BSA Corporation, What does?
To begin with, his statistics frequently exaggerate the degree of decline over the years. Thus, rather than comparing the actual memberships of the PTA or the Boy Scouts in 1960 to their actual memberships today, he adjusts the figures to take into account the proportion of eligible boys or parents in a much larger pool. If an association’s growth has not kept pace with the relevant population, he deems it to have “lost” members—even if it has gained. This, to my mind, is a stretch.
Civic life has indeed deteriorated, though not for the reasons stated in a controversial new book.
Last year, Americans donated over $190 billion to charity, gave roughly 20 billion hours of their time as volunteers, and participated in nearly 2 million tax-exempt organizations, not to mention the still greater number of less formal groups through which they performed an astonishing range of public-spirited works. Indeed, except for a minor dip in the early 1990’s, Americans have been giving and volunteering at an ever-increasing rate for over twenty years.
Yet despite this apparent vitality, all is far from well with civil society in America—or at least so argues the Harvard political scientist Robert D. Putnam in his much-talked-about new book, Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of American Community1 By Putnam’s lights, the United States is in fact suffering from a severe breakdown of civic and social ties, a development that is partly responsible not only for the public’s heightened mistrust of government but even for the growing incidence of depression and suicide. Nor is this withdrawal from civic engagement something new: with the exception of older Americans, Putnam claims, it has been going on for more than 30 years.
How can two such different pictures be reconciled?
The progressive left is working to overcome what it perceives as the out-of-date premises of the Judeo-Christian ethic previously reflected in scouting.
When I was a child growing up in a traditional Jewish home in Jersey City, New Jersey, my parents enrolled me in the Cub Scouts, an organization whose goals included developing moral character, physical fitness, spiritual growth, and practical skills, along with providing opportunities for service to humanity. I quickly advanced through the various badges: Wolf, Bear, Lion, and Webelos. Thereafter I joined Troop 56 at the Jewish Community Center in Jersey City where I became an Eagle Scout, a Brotherhood member of the honorary Order of the Arrow, and served in several troop leadership positions.
As someone steeped in scouting as a youth, I am distressed over what I now perceive as the ongoing demise of the institution of scouting and the traditional moral values for which it stood, as articulated in the Scout Oath and the Scout Law.
The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has become a casualty of the ongoing culture war between those committed to traditional values and those pushing for acceptance of the LGBTQ agenda.
This should shock and disturb every Christian in America.
Because of why it happened … and the process by which it happened…
It all started about 5 years ago…
Until then, the BSA had been one of America’s great cultural institutions, providing individual as well as group activities and training uniquely designed to develop young boys into men.
The organization had excluded gays from both leadership and membership ever since its founding in 1910.
In 2000, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Boy Scouts had a legal right to exclude gays because:
The Stranger within my gate,
He may be true or kind,
But he does not talk my talk–
I cannot feel his mind.
I see the face and the eyes and the mouth,
But not the soul behind.
The men of my own stock,
They may do ill or well,
But they tell the lies I am wanted to,
They are used to the lies I tell;
And we do not need interpreters
When we go to buy or sell.
The Stranger within my gates,
He may be evil or good,
But I cannot tell what powers control–
What reasons sway his mood;
Nor when the Gods of his far-off land
Shall repossess his blood.
The men of my own stock,
Bitter bad they may be,
But, at least, they hear the things I hear,
And see the things I see;
And whatever I think of them and their likes
They think of the likes of me.
This was my father’s belief
And this is also mine:
Let the corn be all one sheaf–
And the grapes be all one vine,
Ere our children’s teeth are set on edge
By bitter bread and wine.
I have no idea if this site is being straight with us or if it’s just a massive trolling operation but the subject of this article is genuine.
There was a time when Boy Scouts were not only American boys — they were young American men.
Dick Douglas, Dave Martin, Douglas Oliver with the camera a lion ate
As another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter.
Once upon a time there were the Boy Scouts, a Christian based group of the high morals of American self sufficiency. This is their story to provide you a glimpse of their censored past.
In the late 1920’s, pioneer wildlife photographers, Osa and Martin Johnson, were given the opportunity by their publisher, the legendary Putman of Putnam books, to be the recipients of 3 Boy Scouts in Africa, out of a national 800,000 contest to see which 3 Scouts would venture to Africa to shoot 3 lions.
