Analysis of the New Rules
The liberals have always been a bunch of bullies, who preached a spirit of open-mindedness and respect toward others regardless of their personal characteristics.
The reality is far more sinister. “Diversity and inclusion” is code for identity politics—by which we are all slotted into factions defined by appearance, ethnicity, national origin and gender (or gender self-identification). It is an altogether imaginary and endless zero-sum game of dominance and oppression.
And while we’re on that topic, I’m very offended by the “talk like a pirate day” where people talk like pirates and sometimes wear fetish pirate costumes. As a descendent of genuine pirates, I find that cultural appropriation to be completely unacceptable. The idea that people would mock my ancestors, and drink rum – when they are not actual pirates or the descendants of pirates is insulting. If you’re not a pirate, you shouldn’t drink rum (ever). No rum and coke, not ever. Now if you’re a wench and want to dress like a wench for a pirate, I think that allowances can be made.
