Oddly inspiring

I agree with all of this except the pajamas. That’s disrespectful to the lecturer who spent hours preparing and also has to present themselves accordingly. It is basic decorum to arrive showing that you are prepared, which by no means means you have to dress uncomfortably.

Perhaps I am odd in that way.

Some of my pajamas back then were arguably nicer than the clothes I had.

Where, where, are those silk monogrammed ridiculous pajamas I used to rock? They came from a fancy thrift store and they vanished in a move.

Fuck, I’ve got to buy another pair and a sweet smoking jacket and fez and slippers, to go with my pipe, you know.

Well, yes, I suppose if your pajamas are nicer than your clothes that is either an invitation to wear them as a mark of respect, or alternatively to buy a new wardrobe

To be honest, coming out of thirteen some years of Catholic School Uniforms, I 1) had no intention of ever wearing ‘clothes that signify respect and subservience’ ever again and 2) literally owned no clothes except ‘I wear these to garden in’ and ‘I wear these to church’ ensembles, neither of which were okay for going out among my peers.

Those pajamas were fabulous though. I only got to wear them a few times to class before my mother hauled me off to Target, Wet Seal, and the like to put me in people clothes.

I felt a little like Dobby.

Subservience and respect are not the same thing. It pains me that people think that.

It is about the exchange of ideas. If your friend invited you to their event would you wear pajamas? And let’s not split hairs about what sort of event. The point is, you would dress according to the event to honor your friend. This person on stage is giving you knowledge. Even if you don’t respect them, and they dress in a hoodie, the act of sharing wisdom is noble, and the effort of teaching and mentoring is sacred.

To me pajamas would be a breech of conduct.

I would wear slacks and a shirt, or a nice dress. No one can talk me out of that. But you’re entitled to your opinions and I am not judging you for having them. I’m simply stating my own discomfort with such an idea.

I will say that with a lot of private schools n subservience is an implied part of the uniform and some teachers will get on to you even if you’re in uniform. As a kid I had a teacher absolutely terrorize me because I always wore the boys uniform in the winter. It was the only way to wear pants when it was too cold for the dresses because the girl’s uniform didn’t have pants as an option. I can definitely see why she’d have that connotation.

I despise that schools teach that, or demand uniforms.

They literally said, ‘as soon as you walk on campus you have no civil rights’.

Fuck you Louisville High School

That is patently false.

They literally said, ‘as soon as you walk on campus you have no civil rights’.

It’s not only false but also potentially something they could get in trouble for saying. I feel like a school, even a private school, telling minors they have no civil rights might be considered some kind of child abuse.

Then again I am of the opinion that a lot of what goes on in schools should be considered abusive, but it keeps happening anyway.

As for clothing… Most of the time, I wear exactly what I wish, and it’s equal parts comfort and self expression. Because there are only two kinds of people whose opinion matters to me; family, and people who have power over my life. If you want me to care that you disapprove of sarcastic shirts, red jeans, and gothic makeup, pay my rent.

When I used to host public events, or do work at city hall, or now when I have to meet new doctors, I dress for glamour. That is, to make people perceive me how I wish. The right color, the right cut to a blouse, strategic jewelry, can dramatically enhance charisma. You can control how people respond to you by being mindful of your visual presentation.

That should be a factor in how you dress for classes, for work, for any situation where you want to succeed and where someone else’s opinion of you will effect that success, or where you want to influence someone in any particular way. 

Use your clothes to make your professors, administrators, and classmates, see you in a more favorable light. It will make a difference.

I don’t think there’s anything inherently wrong with dressing to respect other people. I am biased in that regard because it’s essentially how I’ve lived for a long while.

Bees – by Norman Rowland Gale

You voluble,
Velvety
Vehement fellows
That play on your
Flying and
Musical cellos,
All goldenly
Girdled you
Serenade clover,
Each artist in
Bass but a
Bibulous rover!

You passionate,
Powdery
Pastoral bandits,
Who gave you your
Roaming and
Rollicking mandates?
Come out of my
Foxglove; come
Out of my roses
You bees with the
Plushy and
Plausible noses!

False Moral Equivalency is Not a Bug of Trumpism. It’s a Feature.

wilwheaton:

Washington Post:

The president then complained that not everyone who came to the “Unite the Right” rally was a neo-Nazi or white nationalist. “And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly,” a testy Trump said during a combative back-and-forth with reporters. (Read the full transcript here.)

These comments suggest very strongly that the president of the United States sees moral equivalence between Nazis and those who oppose Nazis. Objectively, of course, there is NO moral equivalence between Nazis and those who oppose Nazis.

But this is part of a pattern.

Trump meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany. (Evan Vucci/Associated Press)

In a pre-Super Bowl interview on Fox, Bill O’Reilly pressed Trump on why he respected Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Putin’s a killer,” O’Reilly said, noting that he murders his political enemies and leads a repressive authoritarian regime. Trump replied without hesitation, “We got a lot of killers. What? You think our country’s so innocent?”

“Take a look at what we’ve done, too,” the president continued. “We’ve made a lot of mistakes. … So, lot of killers around, believe me.“

Trump made similarly bizarre statements about the moral equivalence between the democratic United States and autocratic Russia as a candidate.

As William F. Buckley, the founding editor of National Review, once put it: “To say that the CIA and the KGB engage in similar practices is the equivalent of saying that the man who pushes an old lady into the path of a hurtling bus is not to be distinguished from the man who pushes an old lady out of the path of a hurtling bus: on the grounds that, after all, in both cases someone is pushing old ladies around.”

Yet that’s essentially the logic Trump used yesterday.

My gf and I had sex for the first time the other day and I noticed that she has stretch marks on her belly and thighs? I didn’t say anything but I find them kind of weird to look out. My other gfs didn’t have them so I guess I’m not used to it? Do I tell her I’m not feeling them and suggest how she can get rid of them or not?

God this brings back trauma

I suppose he also has a problem with her having an invaginationnthat seaps fluid, bleeds one quarter of the time, and also grows hair? No? What about the fact that she has a rectum that excretes waste? No? Does the fact that she has a urethra which expels ammonia concern him? Not a bit, you say?

It’s the tiny marks of skin’s flexibility that bother him.

That’s like saying you like everything about the car, from the engine to the ride, but can’t abide driving it because there’s a scratch on the fender. So…that would be a no to the free automobile who asks only your mutuel respect?

Fine. Why don’t you walk to your sensitivity classes.

Why are humans so shallow? I cannot comprehend it.

My math professor used to wear a spongebob hoodie and yoga pants to class. 

Is it acceptable to wear pajamas then?

Does his material rank as worthy of your esteem? In many ways, he is afforded some latitude as he is the presenter.

But as I said, I am Old™ and perhaps odd in this way.
