Support Transracial Rights!


I can SO get behind this:

Did not Michael Jackson become the first trans-ethnic person?  Why can’t others aspire to achieve such a state of being?  Or in feminist speak, why should my children be oppressed by the tyranny of racial assignment?
And besides, its only fair!

Tropes Tabled


Beware!  DeviantArtist "Computer Sherpa” has made it even easier to get sucked into the infamous TV Tropes time sink.  Here are 188 (more or less) of its characters, plot devices, tropes, and subtropes... nicely systematized.

So if you have trouble recalling the 22 primary "Call to Adventure” subtropes (or the fourth member of the Five Man Band), you’ll find them all there for you.  What more could an aspiring writer want?

HT (Yeah, thanks a BUNCH!) to Joanna, who says

Man, this’ll come in handy come NaNoWriMo time.

When Anything Is “a Religion,” Then...?


Mark Steyn:

An employment tribunal in Britain has ruled that a belief in public service broadcasting is equivalent to religious faith...
Only following precedent...
Two years ago, a tribunal found that company executive Tim Nicholson, a firm believer in climate change, was wrongly dismissed after objecting to his company’s use of flights and cars.

That case set a precedent and, this year, animal rights activist Joe Hashman successfully argued that he was wrongly sacked from his garden centre job after his activities were discovered.
Steyn:
If you look at these decisions in toto — from "climate change” to "public service broadcasting” — we are about two judges away from having the entire program of leftist conventional wisdom ruled a state church.
You mean it isn’t, already?
