8 thoughts on “Sacked Eton teacher: I stand by my patriarchy lecture…

    Indeed, women always had it easier. Plus, science and philosophy are like that. Whoever investigates truth has to abandon political correctness, because the nature, the universe we live in, does not care about our feelings. It is what it is. Sacking academics because they speak the truth won’t change the facts, specially if they are right.

      The people behind this type of sacking [censorship, etc] don’t want facts…the last thing they want to know, is what is objectively true…or what is objectively false…or even what we do not know…

      …They want something to bitch about, and a target to attack.

      They don’t want anything constructive…They just want an excuse to be as destructive as they possibly can be.

        My feeling is that in this case, the reputation of Eton was way more important to the school Head and Governors than the fate of one of its teachers, no matter how good the teacher was. The school wouldn’t want to be seen to behave in a politically incorrect manner, and they certainly wouldn’t want to present themselves as a prime example of despicable patriarchy given that Eton is an all male school … a production line churning out chauvinistic young men into the world.

        Ideologically possessed female staff are able to wield their new-found power with impunity against employers and fellow employees alike. Will Knowland is a classic victim of the male-hating tyranny that has come to infest western countries. The fact that his female colleague got away with it, sickens me.

        We should know; we too have lost our freedom due to an equivalent ideological possession.

        But is reputation more important than integrity and having a spine?

        This institution will suffer in the long run, and we will suffer from it’s fruits…

        …and I am so sick of this crap.

        Their lives must be so utterly boring. I noticed that this kind of stuff became more common after the pandemic forced everyone into home.

        Well…it probably says something to that end, that my decade old twitter account got decimated by behind the scenes crippling, and my IP is now targeted by twitter…effectively banning me from the platform…all happening in a pandemic year, where the trouble makers have nothing better to occupy their malice.

        I know there are ways around this, but I really don’t want to spend money, on what rightly is supposed to be a freely open platform.

        Why should I have to tolerate the additional burden, just to do what everyone else takes for granted?

        Since it has both a “local” and a “federated” mode, it takes some getting used to…and it feels a bit clunky in comparison to twitter, or Gab, or Minds, Etc.

        You can still be kicked off, but it’s at the discretion of the person who is hosting your profile…and you can register with a different sever [or whatever it’s called] if you do get shut down…so, you’re not really locked out of the larger network.

        I don’t like that there is no way to interconnect it with this blog, like I used to have twitter showing up on the side.

        One of the bad things about this blog, is that they only allow you to integrate the most well known and established services on the internet, like twitter, I think telegram, maybe pinterest…facebook…But there’s no such option for Mastodon, or the more tolerant micro blog platforms that have been smeared in the media.

        As to NNIA, it’s largely a “virtuous pedophiles” community…with a few of us who have substantially different views and experiences, taking up current residence there…I don’t like that they censor certain kinds of expression, but I’m happy to have a profile there…It’s pretty peaceful, and I have a few friends there I’ve been able to reconnect with.

        I won’t lie though…If another option opens up that’s more tolerant, and I trust it’s owner, I plan to open an account there as well.

        At it’s base, it works like a micro blog…with hashtags and everything.

        As of yet, I’m not interacting with a lot of people on other servers…So, it feels a bit more “clan” like…right now, anyway.

        Oh…and Mastodon actually lets you make considerably long [I think 5000 character] posts…and edit them, after they’ve been posted…Which is fantastic.

        All in all, I like Mastodon.
