https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/01/01/nanc y-pelosi-bans-gender-terms-like-mother-daughter-fa ther-son-in-house-rules/

Not Earth shattering importance, but raises an interesting question.

Up front, I don't understand the reasoning behind gender neutral terminology for gender references. English, American English, specifically, is mostly gender free. Unlike German & others, we don't generally specify the sex of objects. There are exceptions, like Ship names and other Anthropomorphisms, where we give human names and imagined attributes to our objects.

I name cars and bikes... As do many others. My 200,000 mile rusty Caravan is "the Battle Van" ( no sex assigned ) due to it's use to haul SCA fencers, archers, etc. to tournaments & events. My Cyclone is "Buttercup", female, : )

Sure, it's superstitious traditional thinking, but unless you take it too seriously, I enjoy it. I also hold doors for ladies. ( And guys. And often do a little bow-wave in a courtly manner. ) ( also, not always polite, for shame! )

My initial reaction to the above editorial is along the spectrum "ban words, ban ideas, control through fear and ignorance" dislike.

But, since I don't understand the harm in calling a son a son, etc. I could be way off.

Can anyone explain this opinion/concern/butthurt to me? Or sell me on the concept?

That's the mild answer a centrist ( right ) pundit would give. My initial reaction was less polite. ( but also a centrist pundit opinion )

Here's a solid view.

I look forward to my next visit to Boston. A city full of history. I'll have to go to the former statue site and give the now standard tourist lecture. "Here, was a great statue to Abraham Lincoln, removed by Communist swine to erase the truth, the freeing of the slaves of the Democrats by the radical Republicans." In my outdoor voice.

RIP, Officer and Staff Sergeant Sicknick. In this man, we've lost a Red line, and a Blue line, and a true Patriot. Prayers for his family and fellow officers.




A U.S. Capitol Police officer who was injured during the siege on the Capitol by pro-Trump extremists has died, bringing the total number of fatalities from the chaos that gripped Washington on Wednesday to five.

Brian Sicknick was a 42-year-old military veteran who had served in the Capitol Police for 12 years, Rep. Don Beyer, D-Va., said in a statement, adding that Sicknick was one of his constituents.

He died around 9:30 p.m. ET Thursday "due to injuries sustained while on-duty," Capitol Police said in a statement.

"Officer Sicknick was responding to the riots on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol and was injured while physically engaging with protesters," the law enforcement agency said. "He returned to his division office and collapsed."

Officials said he was later transported to a local hospital but did not survive. His death is being investigated by both Capitol Police and the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Police Department's Homicide Branch, according to a statement.

The U.S. Justice Department is opening a federal murder investigation into Sicknick's death, a source familiar with the matter told NPR's Carrie Johnson.

"His murder multiplies the pain of this dark moment for our nation, and those who brought about this awful crime must be prosecuted and brought to justice," Beyer added. "He made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting those trapped in the Capitol amid a violent assault on our democracy itself."

Beyer called for Sicknick to lie in honor at the U.S. Capitol, "like others before him who died in defense of the people's representatives."

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy issued a statement Friday saying that "Sicknick embodied the selfless spirit of his native state" of New Jersey. He added that the officer gave his life protecting the U.S. Capitol, and the nation's democracy.

"Officer Sicknick was a product of South River [N.J.] and a graduate of Middlesex County Vocational and Technical Schools. Before joining Capitol Police, he was Staff Sergeant Sicknick with New Jersey Air National Guard," Murphy said.

"He was a Fire Team Member and Leader with 108th Security Force Squadron, 108th Wing, at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, and his six years of service included overseas deployments in support of Operation Southern Watch and Operation Enduring Freedom," the governor added.

Did anyone buy it?
Yes—three buyers, in fact. It’s reported two editions went for $120,000 before the price was raised to $150,000.
How could three people buy the banana?
In this case, you aren’t actually buying the work itself—it’s a banana. It’s going to rot. What are you buying, then? The certificate of art. Essentially you bought the idea rather than the object.
When the banana goes bad, [or someone eats the banana] the owner can replace it, according to the artist’s instructions. It will still be considered a Cattelan.

Note: I am happy with the cheap knockoffs, they taste just as good.

Enjoy them while you can. Assuming the thin veil of civilization that fills that pipeline doesn’t tear, the fungus that’s killing all the banana trees will ensure that they will be gone soon.

My mom has a grove of banana trees that just keep regrowing. Each tree produces two bunches before dying out, and each bunch is anywhere from 150-220 bananas. 4 or 5 trees come in at once, and it's an endless cycle.

Where can we get some of this fungus? Is it available for purchase?

Asia and South America, currently, where most of them are grown. If you’re lucky, her trees will be spared.

The bananas our grandparents ate are already gone, commercially. The current bananas are a less flavorful variety. The fungus that wiped out grandma’s bananas did’t hurt the present variety. This one does.

I learned very young that the map isn't the territory. Math is a tool for understanding reality, not reality itself. But it took many years for that truth to really make sense.

I got a poor grade in Psych 102 class because I called Freud a "Coke head with Mommy Issues" in a class discussion. Oh, I aced the tests & final, but the teacher was a fan of Sigmund, and that's how it goes.

I hadn't learned much, apparently, because in a Modern History class, I got a lot of heat from the teacher for my attitude on Communism. It came to a head when I pulled out Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's Gulag Archipelago as a reference on mass murder. The teacher asserted Hitler was the Greatest mass Murderer of all time. I disagreed. I pointed out that the Germans were meticulous record keepers, so we know how many grams of bread the victims at concentration camps were allowed, how many kilograms of gold were extracted, and how many gallons of poisons were used, so we had a good count of Hitler's victims, But the Communists lie about everything and even their own records for how many were murdered is bullshit.

I found I had withdrawn from the class the next class. I hadn't. It was my word vs. the Professor, and it was the 1970's so I was out of class and the money I Paid. I did get a certain satisfaction by cheerfully greeting the teacher in the hallways with a merry, "Good day Comrade Dzhugahsvili" which confused him for weeks. Something I could not have gotten away with today, and IMHO suggested his competence in the field.

Peterson's observation on education is spot fracking on.
