THE WORLD WE LIVE IN.

The wife of a Rachel Maddow fanboy argues he ought not be charged with a hate crime. "Attempting to throw a spanner into the humming rumor mill, the wife of the Chapel Hill killer told the media on Wednesday that her husband could not possibly be guilty of a hate crime because he was a committed progressive." So-called hate crimes are the postmodern version of mortal sins that call for additional acts of contrition or public penance.  Perhaps it is in applying such laws to the Rachel Maddow fanboy and the Ted Nugent enthusiast alike, that people will recognize their folly. "It will not do simply to presume that there is something intrinsic to progressivism that renders its adherents free from bigotry."

The governor of Oregon properly resigns after he is caught funneling state business to his wife's consultancy.  His successor is of the view that it's OK to cheat on her husband, as long as it is with another woman. "[Kate] Brown is married to husband Dan Little; she has publicly discussed her bisexuality in past campaigns."

And the office of freakazoid rights at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee seeks to guilt-trip normal people.
It is a privilege to not have to worry about which pronoun someone is going to use for you based on how they perceive your gender. If you have this privilege, yet fail to respect someone else’s gender identity, it is not only disrespectful and hurtful, but also oppressive.
Whatever. Oh brave new world that has such people in it.
