    I find it odd that these folks talk about things like "the LGBT community" as if it is a community that is grounded in some commonality.

    Now we're at the point where it's all very mix-and-match - everyone just picks from the massive set of initials that relate to these various groups. No doubt they upset some sub-group in the process, no matter how hard they try to be inclusive.

    Teachers federation conducts 'LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP' training | Daily Mail Online

    "The Canadian Elementary Teachers Federation (ETFO) of Ontario hosted a LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP inclusiveness training session on June 6.

    The acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Genderqueer, Bisexual, Demisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Twospirit, Intersex, Queer, Questioning, Asexual, Allies, Pansexual and Polyamorous."
    They've had more splits than the protestants.

    Is Canada renowned for these things? Just I saw some parody of Canadian PC public info videos for the school kids on the Simpsons.

    Teaching elementary teachers about pre-pubescent gayness? Presumably how to encourage it? That is creepy as fk.

    And its own excess.

    Blame the parents.

    The younger generation have experienced so much so soon they have little else to be doing other than acting the complete eejit and the sooner we let them know the better.

    They're making utter clowns out of the whole of society.

    All that excess must have been exhausting. Rome has a fascinating history, aside from the debauchery and scheming and power struggles. I watched a documentary recently that described how the Colosseum was built with the slave labour of 12,000 Jews captured by the Romans when they sacked Palestine. The new emperor demolished Nero's palace but still didn't have enough room so he had the Jewish slaves demolish an enormous hill so he could have his Colosseum and he funded the project with the goods he'd looted in Palestine, talk about having your cake and eating it.

    I read an article a few years ago where it said they "had" the universities. The goal was to brainwash very young children when it would be game, set and match.

    And we're allowing it.

    I don't think any reasonable person would disagree with that.

    What's the difference supposed to be in this context?

    So, it's okay if something has been around a long time, but not if it hasn't?
