Dead Wild Roses: Rise Again RPOJ – The Marvellous Pow-ah of Straw Argumentation – an Illustrated Guide

The working title for this post was accurate, but a bit wordy: Dude Superciliously Imagines What Females Think then Blames Females for His Imagining of their Problems. We tightened things up a bit and figured we’d add more verbosity in the introduction. The Dude over at Talonrest is a master of erecting stupid assertions (go […] . . . → Read More: Dead Wild Roses: Rise Again RPOJ – The Marvellous Pow-ah of Straw Argumentation – an Illustrated Guide

Dead Wild Roses: “Why Rape Culture is a Dangerous Myth” – *groan* – Yet Another Mansplination of Hysterical Female Behaviour

I’m not sure what the author of the review was thinking… Actually, on second thought I might have an idea – this is the liberal left dude deciding to be ‘edgy’ and take on an issue that feminists, especially radical feminists, like to rattle on about. One would hope that with a title […] . . . → Read More: Dead Wild Roses: “Why Rape Culture is a Dangerous Myth” – *groan* – Yet Another Mansplination of Hysterical Female Behaviour

Dead Wild Roses: Cellphone Etiquette – Or How I know I’m Old

I seem to be under the false perception that when attending a meeting with friends that the focus of the occasion should be the people attending and not the digital world available through one’s smartphone. I write this piece because I have a couple of friends who periodically bring their phones out during dinner, or […] . . . → Read More: Dead Wild Roses: Cellphone Etiquette – Or How I know I’m Old

Trashy's World: Let’s call this a Thursday rant…

Dead Wild Roses: The First RPOJ of 2016 – Full Frontal Stupidity

I cannot identify what it is with dudes and radical feminism. There must be some strange extra-sensory siren call that attracts dudes and dudely opinion to articles, blogs, and heck even just mere information about women speaking unequivocally about their experiences and analysis of society. Of course the attraction is just one part of […] . . . → Read More: Dead Wild Roses: The First RPOJ of 2016 – Full Frontal Stupidity

Dead Wild Roses: Drain the Swamp – The Colorado Planned Parenthood Tragedy

The cesspool that is toxic masculinity, the sea we all swim in, had a newsworthy (aka an effect on people other than women) peak at the Planned Parenthood in Colorado. “Three people were killed and nine others injured after gunfire ripped through a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colo., during an hours-long standoff […] . . . → Read More: Dead Wild Roses: Drain the Swamp – The Colorado Planned Parenthood Tragedy

Dead Wild Roses: Alberta @ Noon: Let’s (*not*) Gut the Public Service

Be it resolved – If the Private Sector is cutting jobs in a economic downturn then the Government of the day should also be cutting Public Sector.

This is my debate point. You won’t find it anywhere in the Alberta@Noon podcast I’m about to link here. I know most of you won’t be thrilled . . . → Read More: Dead Wild Roses: Alberta @ Noon: Let’s (*not*) Gut the Public Service

Dead Wild Roses: Canada’s Election Day – I’d usually say, “Just go vote!”. Not this year.

Go vote! Or don’t! The FPP system will probably scuttle your intentions anyways. I hear spitting into the wind or pissing up a rope are fine substitutes for exercising the barest of minimums required for participatory democracy.

The getting out the vote campaigns are heroic and all that stuff, encouraging all those young . . . → Read More: Dead Wild Roses: Canada’s Election Day – I’d usually say, “Just go vote!”. Not this year.

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Sunday Religious Disservice – Religious Liberty is Shit – Kim Davis and Her Struggle with Reality

It was nice.

I was on a lovely sabbatical, my time was restful and chock full of repose, languidity, and tranquility. I was defended from hearing about the woes of the Oppressed Christian Majority in the United States. My ire toward the loon-factory that is organized religion was at an all time low.

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Sunday Religious Disservice – Cows! Milk! Rape! RPOJ! – Christian “Morality” On Display

Usually we get to watch loopy christians say loopy stuff in support of their sincere belief in magic here on the the Disservice. Not so much fun today as we are going to look at how belief in magic can warp the moral fibre of people into condoning rape and the abuse of women.

Dead Wild Roses: Jim Prentice’s Broken Mirror – Refreshingly Arrogant.

Hey Jimmy Boy, you certainly have shown where you priorities are and what you think of Albertans.

I don’t blame you though; we let you take power basically through acclimation – no fucks were given, as long as got rid of that WOMAN who was single-handedly ruining the province.

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Sunday Religious Disservice – Charlie Hebdo

Oh, those wacky religious Muslim terrorists are at it again going all murder happy on people who dare to make fun of their religion.

This event is completely ludicrous and, in 2015, should not be happening, some reasons off the top of my head:

Dead Wild Roses: RPOJ – Dudes Uncover “Feminist” Tag on WordPress – Hilarity Ensues.

One of the most refreshing experiences a feminist can be graced with, it is positively bracing I do declare, is having an entitled white dude explain to them what is wrongity-wrong-wrong with Feminism. I’m not sure what is more alluring, a dude’s decisive grasp of the basic tenets of feminist thought or their keen focus . . . → Read More: Dead Wild Roses: RPOJ – Dudes Uncover “Feminist” Tag on WordPress – Hilarity Ensues.

Dead Wild Roses: Oh Those Puritan Feminists! – RPOJ runs wild!

Have you ever met someone who initially, seems intelligent, but then opens his mouth and forcefully repudiates that notion? Well, that isn’t even close to the case here. The cranial-anal link here is strong with this one, so strong in fact, that stupid flows freely from almost every paragraph, every sentence – hell – . . . → Read More: Dead Wild Roses: Oh Those Puritan Feminists! – RPOJ runs wild!

The Misanthropic Bird: Apprentice. Intern. Slave.

The employment climate for many students and graduates has been a difficult terrain to not only navigate but also survive. And slavery masked under labels of ‘apprentice’ or ‘intern’ only make it worse.

If you took any history 101 class, you may have heard of civil rights activist, and overall great guy, Martin Luther King, Jr..

Dead Wild Roses: Feminist Casts Jundiced Eye toward Kia’s Dancing Hamsters

Let it be said up front that this cranky second waver bears no animus with regards to hamsters, electric vehicles, or dancing. Yet, once these elements are mixed into the toxic soup of everyone’s favourite capitalistic patriarchal construct – better known as ‘our society’ – hilarity is bound to ensue.

It has been far too long since I’ve written anything, as we know, life can get in the way, and it sure doesn’t give a damn about your plans. Nonetheless, I’ve finally returned to good ol’ Canadian soil, and (gladly) left the suffocating smog of Beijing.
