In today's installment of "No, really. They're serious about this shit", we
present CNN, which is reporting that gender bias extends to hurricanes.
Specifically, that since people don't take women seriously, they don't take
hurricanes with female names seriously, either, leading to lack of
preparedness and more deaths from female-named storms.
This is reminiscent of congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, when she
complained to NOAA that hurricane names are "too white sounding" and
requested that future storm names better represent black people. Presumably
she wants to see a Hurricane D'Andre or Hurricane L'Queesha.
You're right, that's silly. However, it's also trivial. Because of
your particular brand of personality disorder, you ascribe importance to
things that should be dismissed as trivial. You do this over and over
and over and over. You really should ask your therapist about it.
Isn't "silly" in the eye of the beholder, T? What some might see as
"silly" others might see as "racist" or a "microaggression."
Why the fuck is this CNN's problem?
All they're doing is *reporting* on the results of a study written up in
"The Proceedings National Academy of Sciences".
That's part of CNN's job, stupid or not. All news has some fluff to pad
their hard reporting. This was a puff piece. And what the fuck does
this have to do with "liberalism"?
He never included any context from CNN's reporting, so we have no idea
what the thought was behind the piece. Talk about shoddy "reporting".
But, on the bright side, now that I've seen the Youtube video, I can now
put a face and voice to Thanny's posts!
Watch it, and tell me you won't see and hear that guy in Thanny's next
post. Especially where he's wearing the glasses with the tape over the
This is nothing more than another case of manufactured outrage. You
notice the right wing rarely tackles a story like how tax cuts
"magically" pay for themselves, and how giving rich fucks more money
somehow "creates jobs".
