An Army of Smug Delicates

Interesting "delicate" issue came up today. A delicate mother in Ohio is upset because she was given a list of requirements that her spawn was supposed to be able to do before attending Kindergarten. Now she's whining about being made to feel like a failure because her kid can't do them. Well, you are a failure honey. Anyways...

I find the entire exercise rather ridiculous. First, a moron posts a whiny post about someone demanding that she or her children have usable skills: How dare them people force me to teach my own kid!! They must be Republikansans. Please, of great internet of assholes and whiners, assure me that I is right to be useless!

The internet responds: Oh how unfair. How horrible! There is NO way a five year old can know most of the alphabet, know their own name, know how to draw a picture and explain what it is. Forcing this on kids is like building a Nazi deathcamp for kids!!

Then one of the delicates sees the key to victory. The flier lists among the requirements: "Can he or she -- Identify 30+ letters"? Gotcha! There ain't no thirty letters! Ha ha ha ha ha ha! I is supereor to a teecher! They dont's no that there ain't no 30 letters! There's only 23 25 26. Ha ha ha.

Along comes one person with a brain (a teacher) to shatter the illusion. It turns out that there are more than 30 letters if you count capital letters and lower-case letters separately... as you do when you are teaching kids how to read. Simple. In fact, it was kind of obvious even before the teacher spoke up, but the delicates aren't that smart, especially when they're in the middle of a mega smuggie.

Now it gets even more stupid.

See, a great many of the delicates kept pouring through the edoor and adding their generic 2 cents... identical to all the prior 2 cents. Indeed, like the herd animals they are, they all kept smugging it up about the 30 letter thing and feeling so proud that they had outsmarted someone smarter. The fact that others kept pointing out that they weren't right didn't stop them at all. By God, they felt they were right!

Then a couple were told directly that they were wrong. What did they do?

They did what delicates always do... they got angry. They were shocked and angered that a teacher would defend this flier. How dare a teacher go against the herd to defend something that is WRONG! This flier has been declared unclean and THOU SHALT NOT DEFEND THE UNCLEAN!

Finally, a comparative brainiac among the delicates reasoned that even if the 30 letter thing wasn't wrong, it was still wrong because it had confused people and someone claiming to be a genius (as no doubt the flier writer claims because they clearly think they are better than the rest of us because they made a delicate feel bad) must not write a flier in a way that can be confusing!! The fact that the worst that will happen is people will assume it is a typo or they will call to ask what it means means nothing to these people. It confused me. It is wrong. And therEFORE YOU AIN'T AS SMART AS YOU THINK YOU ARE, SO MY LIFE IS NOT A TOTAL F**KING FAILURE!!!

This happens every time with the delicates. They act just like witch burners, Nazis or any other number of nasty herd creatures only lazier. They are seething with anger, smugness and arrogance, all basted in a nasty sauce of insecurity and ignorance. Everyone involved in this was a failure. The mother failed for not realizing that kids with a future can do all of this and more by the time they turn five because good parents teach their kids skills. The commenters failed for not knowing this, and for supporting her whining and thereby dooming the children of idiot parents who are looking for support among these people. Then they failed by trying to tear down a school based on their own ignorance, and attacking the teacher who tried to explain to them that the flier was not a witch after all.

Welcome to the ass end of the human race.

Was the memo written in cursive?

BTW, here's a link to another article from a delicate. This particular delicate is writing how upset she was that her boyfriend was bothered by the number of sexual partners she has had.

She says, "I also knew the answer to that question was none of his business, no matter my number. What does it matter how many people I’ve slept with?"

That is a beautiful quote. First, it shows how utterly in denial this chick is. It absolutely matters. It matters because it matters to him, just as it would matter to other people. See delicate, other people can have opinions that differ from yours. You don't get to impose your way on others.

Moreover, it does matter. If you are the village bicycle, which it sounds like this chick was, then people realize that (1) you are likely a petri dish of disease, (2) you lack judgment, and (3) you lack loyalty. Those things matter.

Secondly, it has an intensely ironic flavor in that she only now realizes how badly she has screwed up her life even as she denies that anyone should be able to judge her for it.

Finally, she reaches for the opiate of victimization to make herself feel better by whining how this is a double standard which only applies to women... which isn't true.

The truth is, she's a slut and now she's paying the price for it and she doesn't like that. So she wants to believe that everyone else is at fault for holding that against her. Wah.

Pathetic delicate.

As an aside, her name is Tonilyn Hornung (Horny?). You can probably find her in the phone book. Here's the link ==> 867-5309.

AndrewPrice said...

Eric, What is this "cursive" of which you speak? Are you dare suggesting there are more ways to write our 21 letter alphabet? Why, I never!!

ArgentGale said...

Heh, I think we all needed some good delicate mockery this week, though I got more of a laugh out of the 80s one hit wonder subject. People really can find validation for any kind of dysfunction on the Internet, can't they? I hope the rise of the delicates ends soon... Even with an extensive break from social media they never seem far away.

1) Whining about kids being asked to learn things is a bipartisan phenomena nowadays.

'Waaah, My daughter got straight As and didn't even have to study before Common Core came along! Now she has to work and she can't stop crying! Someone water down the standards and save her!'

2) As for the woman, given that the guy blew her off when she asked him to answer his own question I can see where she is coming from.


Instead of answering I tried a different tactic: “How many people have you slept with?” I countered.

All I got was a shrug followed by, “I don’t know. I didn’t keep count.”

Also, IMHO that is a stupid sort of question to ask because it is the sort of question most people won't answer either because they don't know or because they will give the answer that doesn't mess up their relationship.

AndrewPrice said...

Daniel, The thing is... these people have always been with us. Sadly, a good chunk of the human race is simply messed up. They are pathetic failures who don't have a clue how to handle the real world because they are incompetent and they are prone to hateful superstition, racism, victimology and spite as virtue. Sometimes, there are large numbers of them and then people get burned as witches or put in death camps. Sometimes there aren't so many and they scream in the wilderness how unfair reality is to them.

Right now I would say that there are much fewer of them because people are becoming more independent and less superstitious. What makes them seem like they exist in much larger numbers is the internet and the fact that their allies have taken jobs where they can repost this crap.

If places like Yahoo weren't staffed by delicates, no one would ever link to this crap.

AndrewPrice said...

Anthony, It has become bipartisan, but I still think it's mainly limited to the incompetents on both sides, of which there are many.

As for the woman, I don't care about the boyfriend. First, I suspect she's lying/misstating what happened to turn this into a womyn's issue. Indeed, I doubt he would date someone he knew had slept with other people (they were friends) and then would suddenly be unhappy that he wasn't the first... that's her way of trying to shift attention from her being a slut to make this about him wanting a virgin "he wouldn't be satisfied with any number I gave him." Secondly, I strongly suspect that the reason he didn't answer her was that she had refuse to answer his question. She was playing an evasion game and he refused to play. That's standard human nature -- "I'm not letting you change the topic, now answer my question."

More importantly though, I'm going with her opinions, which are not limited to this particular boyfriend. That's what she's screaming to the world, so that's what I'm talking about. She thinks none of this should matter and she hates the fact that another human being would think it would. "It's not fair that other people get to judge me!" The boyfriend's number is a red herring.

So here is what I think completely encapsulated by a commenter on the NYT article. It could be construed as "mansplaining" by the author, but it is truthful. Women can't have it both ways. Overt sexual liberation and then complain when their potential mate asks a question about it. this is common amongst feminists. They objectify themselves as sexual beings and then shame men for objectifying them as sexual beings.

So, feminists convinced some women that sleeping around is liberation. Sexual liberation to be exact. And now they are trying to tech [sic] us that the men who have a problem with loose women are insecure. I won't hold my breath on the last one changing. The whole idea of a woman trying to shame men into accepting something they don't want to is sickening.

Look, there are two types of women men look for in life; the right now woman and the forever woman. Very rarely are the two women the same person. The right now woman is promiscuous and sexually adventurous. The forever woman is not.

Call it a double standard if you want, but how dare you chastise a man for his preference in a wife. If men don't have the right to desire a certain type of woman, then women don't have the right to desire a certain man. You can not have it both ways.

Like it or not, women hold the keys to men's sexuality. A man is not insecure or less of a man because he desires a woman who doesn't have as many keys as a high school janitor.

AndrewPrice said...

"doesn't have as many keys as a high school janitor" Ha ha! That's great!

Bev, I think that's right. This woman has been taught that she cannot be judged no matter what she does and she can have as many partners as she wants. Now she is learning that other people don't agree with that, and that she is being judged for having so many partners, and she is horrified by it.

But rather than realizing that she's an idiot for missing all the signs her whole life (like how Hollywood makes the slut (male or female) the unlikable characters in films), she's lashing out and blaming her boyfriend and men in general for judging her.

She doesn't even see the irony of judging him for judging her.

Apparently, she has the right to decide what to do with her life (true) and the right to keep others from judging her for it (false).

tryanmax said...

Bev, that's very well put. A lot of what mucks up the internet is people protesting the notion of what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax, That's the easiest way to make yourself a victim -- take something that happens to everyone and pretend it only happens to you because of your race, gender, poorness, age, BMI, etc.

White people don't have to tell their kids to respect the cops! Men don't need to worry about being seen as disease infested guidos! Designers love everyone except the morbidly obese! Why are they singling out my child to make them lern stuph?

BevfromNYC said...

I want to start another victimized subgroup in which I feel I belong and should available for possible gov't compensation or remuneration. I am going to call it: Victims of Those Who Claim Victimization Because of The Specific Victimized Subgroup The Victimized Victims Choose To Identify

tryanmax said...

And as if to illustrate just how childish the victimist mindset is, just this morning my 7 yr old whined, "Why does the puppy nip at me the most!?"

Koshcat said...

Wait, I'm confused. Is 30 the number of letters or the number of Johns?

If a kid is supposed to know the alphabet by kindergarten (a nice Nazi term), what is the point of it except for state controlled day care? I don't believe kindergarten is mandatory (yet) so don't enroll her until 1st grade next year.

Multiple studies have shown that both sexes lie when asked how many sexual partners. Women tend to lower the number and men increase it. She has the right to not answer the question and if he doesn't like that answer, perhaps they are not right for each other.

ArgentGale said...

Sounds about right, Andrew, and the ass of humanity is a good description of them. I definitely don't miss seeing normally rational people validating the delicates' dysfunctions, either, which is why I'm unlikely to venture onto a social media news feed any time soon. It's been much better for my sanity. And for that part of the discussion most people I know, particularly the women, hold both highly promiscuous men AND women in contempt. It really doesn't pay, unless you like being paid with diseases.

- Daniel

AndrewPrice said...

Daniel, It's the rare person I've met who doesn't view promiscuity with contempt. I'm pretty sure that's a biological instinct and no amount of wishing is going to change that.

Sometimes it is hard to venture into social media because they are clogged with stupid people. But rest assured, it's only a tiny number of people.

AndrewPrice said...

Koshcat, That's the thing. She does have the right not to answer. But she doesn't have the right to dictate his response or to tell him what he may judge her on. That's what the delicates don't like. They hate being judged for their mistakes.

AndrewPrice said...

Bev, The world definitely needs more victim groups. How about a group for people who haven't been victimized? They must feel left out.

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax, It's part of human nature. And it's the job of adults to teach kids that they aren't victims. Or in the case of some, to teach their kids that they are and to forever doom them to failure.
