Five British Universities Vote To Censor, Ban "Blurred Lines"
— Ace

I told you there was actually a political angle here. And you guys thought that all I was doing was linking a video with lots of bewbz.

By the way that's "lad chatter." That's also been banned.


Once upon a time, students’ political leaders kicked against authoritarianism; now they enforce it.

In the space of a generation, they’ve gone from demanding the right of young adults on campus to listen to, dance to, read and watch what they want, to placing a paternalistic hand over students’ ears and eyes lest they hear something a bit raunchy.

Blurred Lines, a massive global hit sung by Thicke with Pharrell Williams and the rapper T.I., has been the subject of controversy since it was released in March. The modern breed of sexless, censorious feminist has been particularly vocal in slamming both the song and its accompanying video, which features the three singers, fully clothed, cavorting with some very attractive models wearing only flesh-colored thongs. Blurred Lines is “creepy” and “a bit rapey,” says one observer.

Now, British student unions have taken this shrill reaction to what is just a pretty good and perfectly harmless pop song to its logical conclusion. The student union at Edinburgh kicked things off on 12 September by banning Blurred Lines from every student building. It did this as part of its policy to “End Rape Culture and Lad Banter” on campus.

End "Rape Culture and Lad Banter"? WTF is lad banter?

Well it turns out that "lad banter" is the sort of folk wisdom that lads pass around as to how to seal the deal with a girl. Apparently they don't like the prominence of such chatter in the "lad magazines," such as Maxim. So, they seek to ban it.

The instinct behind the Edinburgh union’s banning of Blurred Lines is the same one that has motored every act of censorship in history: a paternalistic urge to keep the little people’s base motives in check by protecting them from sexy, blasphemous, or shocking imagery.

...

We seem to have nurtured a spectacularly narcissistic generation, many of whom seem truly to believe that it is perfectly natural and reasonable to demand the squishing of anything that offends them. This is the grisly end product of the self-esteem culture: having educated young people to believe that their self-esteem is sacrosanct, and that anything which dents it is evil, we cannot now be surprised that they believe they have the right to erect a moral, censorship-powered forcefield around themselves and their peers in order to ward off any idea or image or song that makes them feel bad.

What's especially risible about such types is the idea that the censors here are "Big People" with Big Brains who must protect the Little People with Little Brains.

In fact, the sort of person who pushes these idiotic bans are Little People with Little Brains. They think they're at the top of societal evolution, and therefore have the right and duty to patrol others for unclean thoughts; in fact, they're rather at the bottom of that evolution, and really should just fuck off in silence.

Also oppressive, common sense:

A significant proportion of students and the wider population hold dangerous victim-blaming views about women who experience rape and sexual violence.
 
Following sexual violence on or near campus, our institutions and the police are still telling women to change their behaviour - i.e. do not walk alone, get a taxi etc.

71 Posted by: thunderb at September 30, 2013 12:20 PM (zOTsN) I think what they really mean is that it won't be played at events like dances or socials or whatnot. It's less restrictive than it sounds and, ordinarily, the playlist of a university's student union might include banning some popular songs. But, of course, this has to be a concerted effort. An effort to "do something" about "rape culture". Which, in fact, "does nothing" at all, but they do it so that they can get the attaboys from people who really, really, really, really care about rape culture. And I think if they look carefully at some pop songs, they'll find more than a few objectionable. The difference between rap and rape is an e that's been silenced.

The same goes for all  the dumb broads out there who spread their legs for everybody who has every read ANY OF THE DOZENS of internet posts/programs about how to get any chick to go  to bed with you.  The reason those programs sell is because they work.  And the reason they work is because chicks aren't supposed to say "no" anymore.

86 I watched the last episode of The Story of the Jews by Simon Schama and it was what I expected. They couldn't even call it the History of the Jews because the muzzies whined too much. Schama is in Israel bashing the west bank settlers and then attacks the wall in a back handed manner. They are sure to film the ugly portions of it ignoring the fact that the majority is a fence. And a wall that keeps murderers out is pretty fucking beautiful to most good people. He does say anyone who is not Israeli and does not live there should criticize the wall. Fair enough. But then he talks about historically Jews interacted with other people and it was brave or something and this prevents it. WTF? They can talk. The just can't kill Jews. All these people never bother to mention that it is all behavior modification. When the Palis aren't killing Jews, Israel relaxes restrictions. They allow more arabs in and even allow them to travel to the sea. When they start tossing bombs, the border seals up.

119 The Euro "progressives" spend their entire academic careers reading about and decrying against and howling in agony over he evil horrible old Victorians and their repressive attitudes toward sex and little brown people. The very same people who Banned "Blurred Lines" in 2013 probably just turned in an essay that morning about how monstrous and oppressive it was for government censors to ban "Lady Chatterly's Lover" a century ago. How is it any different? It's not. The two bans a century apart were enacted for THE EXACT SAME REASONS. Except someone the modern censors position themselves as the polar opposites of their predecessors> Where "little brown people" comes into this is that once again, the modern progressives act EXACTLY like the "progressives" of the 19th century -- people like Kipling, who saw it as Europe's burden to help the lesser brown peoples of the world. Look at every single progressive nonprofit with their do-goooder schemes in Africa and similar places -- how is that any different from the "white man's burden" of Kipling's era? It's not. It's precisely the same actions for precisely the same motivations. And yet, as with censorship, these modern kids imagine themselves as the anti-Kiplings of history. he is their Satan. And yet they are him.

And meanwhile, back in The States:

Ohio University's marching band, at the request of administrators, dropped the controversial hit song "Blurred Lines" (which critics argue glorifies rape) from its halftime show, The Columbus Dispatch reported. Richard Suk, director of the band, said he didn't object to the administrators' request but was concerned about "where do we draw the line in the future?"

The Post, the student newspaper at Ohio, has run opinion pieces criticizing the original decision to play "Blurred Lines," but the newspaper's editorial board took a different stand this time. "[W]hile we believe the [marching band] should not have chosen to perform the song, we also believe the administration should not have stepped in. The university should not censor the music on campus; we students are adults now, and can form opinions for ourselves," the editorial said.

The Obama administration last week gave Iranian President Hassan Rouhani a 2,700-year-old Persian artifact reportedly worth more than $1 million, according to various media reports.

The administration called it a “special gift” to the Iranians.

“The Americans contacted us on Thursday and said ‘we have a gift for you’,” Iran’s president told reporters after he returned Saturday from his trip to the United States, according to the ILNA news agency.

“They gave it back as a special gift to the Iranian nation,” he added.

So what did the Obama administration allegedly give Rouhani? A 7th century silver drinking cup in the shape of a winged griffin (head of an eagle, body of a lion).

I want to watch it just to see how it is that the yobos are able to get their hands upon a large amount of guns when everyone knows there are no guns in the UK. I'm trying to find the article, but I can't think of good keywords for it. Basically the UK papers were complaining because the military was under supplied and they had actually gone to the US military asking for guns. The US military had said no, and the Brits were pissed about it. Their point of view was they were only in Iraq or Afghanistan because of the US and when it's the US's party, they (we) should supply the party favors. No pride at all. Can you imagine begging another country for weapons so you could fight? The UK is supposed to be first world!

202 Cradle to grave means you never stop being a baby. Which is really what they wanted. Children are seldom criticized by their parent. Oh, they may be corrected, but they are seldom criticized (so-called "Tiger Parents" notwithstanding). Once someone moves from adolescence into adulthood, they start being criticized (or, they did before the Special Snowflake generation). They didn't like that, so they wanted a system wherein they might be corrected (but they never would be so long as they conformed) but they would never be criticized Because Free Love Man.

213 1. What Is the Basic Issue in the World Today? The basic issue in the world today is between two principles: Individualism and Collectivism. Individualism holds that man has inalienable rights which cannot be taken away from him by any other man, nor by any number, group or collective of other men. Therefore, each man exists by his own right and for his own sake, not for the sake of the group. Collectivism holds that man has no rights; that his work, his body and his personality belong to the group; that the group can do with him as it pleases, in any manner it pleases, for the sake of whatever it decides to be its own welfare. Therefore, each man exists only by the permission of the group and for the sake of the group. These two principles are the roots of two opposite social systems. The basic issue of the world today is between these two systems.

238 If the federal government partially shuts down on Tuesday, federal worker unions are set to protest and demand back pay for government workers.

If Congress cannot agree to a short-term resolution to fund the government by Monday, parts of the federal government will shut down on Tuesday. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) said he believes government employees should get back pay and, since many may be living "paycheck to paycheck," he asserted, “We as a Congress need to be more sensitive to their needs.” Nah I don't think so

Right, it's necessary to put air quotes (or actual quotes) around the word "love," because it really does not resemble anything like actual love, but whatever stirring that occurs, in whatever part of the body that becomes stirred.  The tummy, the loins, etc.

255 The UK of today is not even a shadow of its former self. While Australia, Germany and even Canada push back some from the excesses of the left-wing loonies that ruled them for so long, the so-called Conservative Party has abandoned the Conservatism of Burke, Churchill and Thatcher in favor of, well who knows--they sure don't. And they will suffer at the polls because of it. A big chunk of the traditional Tory coalition and the Conservative working-class Thatcher voters have long since abandoned the Conservative Party now led by PM Cameron and moved to the UKIP. The UKIP is the British equivalent of the Tea Party. They put there money where there mouth was and formed their own party. Their leader, Nigel Firage, actually has an outlet, because he is an elected member of the EU Parliament. They required proportional representation, so it guarantees a certain number of seats to third parties. I predict that in 5 years, the UKIP will be become the biggest party second the Labor. In 10, they will be the Government, similar to how Stephen Harper's party now leads Canada. The old Conservatives burned to the ground and Harper's party built on the ashes. They now lead a party that many observers believe will be in power for a generation.

262 Feminists seem to have no problem with young women sexualizing themselves by the most degrading and disgusting means possible. In fact, they get really offended if young women try to focus on anything else, like wanting a monogamous relationship someday or perhaps forming their own political opinions.

However, if any of the men around appear to *enjoy* any of this? OMGZ! RAPE CULTURE!!!!!!!!

Meanwhile, women are free to ogle Adam Levine for as long as they like while simultaneously making fun of his promiscuity. But no one is allowed to criticize a woman for doing the same thing, no matter how much damage she is causing other people, because it's "slut shaming".

I've had enough of these people. If you act like a whore, I reserve the right to call you on it. I also reserve the right to enjoy it.

There's not really anything in "Blurred Lines" that can't be found in what's passed for popular culture for centuries. Men trying to talk women into having sex with them is not a new concept. Or an inherently evil one.
