    So I guess the word “cunt” is out too in describing anyone offended by the use of the word “brilliant”?

    There is no message other than anti-feminism and BillyHW is its prophet

    Why bother speaking to or around young women at all.

      All you have to do is to pretend to listen.

        I’m sure that’s some kind of crime.

      There’s a reason why those foreign wife web pages are making so much money.

    Those who were or are world beating brilliant geniuses of proven useful to man ability in either sex aren’t usually praised for their superior social skills or humanity, very much the opposite.
    There, there, princess. You are so a brilliant SJW genius. Those other kids are just being patriarchal racists.

    It’s all part of the self esteem movement. Had a Midget baseball team a few years ago and we won the Provincial championships. At the year end event for the entire association when we were presented with the trophy my main pitcher grabbed the cup, raised it above his head, and yelled out “This is what it’s all about”. Later some fucking soccer mom started to give him a hard time because she said it hurt her son’s feelings. I interceded and told her that maybe she should mind her own business and fuck off. Self esteem is the bane of our society. It’s why most millennials are impossible to deal with.

      My mom was a teacher in Ontario – she was old-school and used to quip that when self esteem was promoted in schools more than math or grammar, it was time for her to retire. This was in the early 90’s.

        Maths and grammar are instruments of white supremacy.

        I know what you mean. But I’ve always been a cock eyed optimist and am not retiring till the end of this month.
