We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Samizdata quote of the day

Call a woman “shrill” and you might just end up in cage. Meanwhile, as I point out, this sort of “protection” disempowers women.

Amy Alkon, suitably reacting to this maggoty peach by Sadiq Khan.

  • Even if we outlaw misogyny, we still have a terrible problem with misandry. I see few calls to outlaw that.

    Funny – a Muslim calling one of the main features of his religion a hate crime.

    If the government can approve rape gangs, it can approve some minorities traditional practices…..

    Like stoning. Or seminars not leaving home without a male relative.

    It brings closer the day when non Muslims vote for Sharia just to get the women to shut up.

    If the government can approve rape gangs,

    I wonder if such gatherings will finally be outlawed as part of the Coronavirus terror.

    So Mayor Khan now wishes to put people in prison for “hate speech” (and so on) concerning women. Does this include someone who taught that women were deficient in intelligence and morality and that their evidence should be worth half that of a man? How about someone who taught that it was morally legitimate to rape female civilian captives – please note that I have NOT said who taught these doctrines.

    As Mr Khan is himself not a woman (unless he has “identified” as one without my getting to hear of his), using Noel Coward style language concerning him would seem to be legitimate – even under his own rules.

    “Noel-Coward-style language”?
