It’s Getting Weirder and Weirder

Okay, time for our dumpster-dive into the nooze.

Swept up in the #MeToo hoopla, Netflix has issued a set of Rules to its employees, governing interpersonal behavior–because, after all, all behavior must be governed. Left to their own devices, people will just–well, don’t leave them to their own devices. Keep the leash on tight.

Leading off the list of Rules is an admonition not to look at anybody for more than 5 seconds ( It must make for some rather strained conversations. Also, you can’t ask for a co-worker’s phone number, and there are no “lingering hugs” allowed.

According to Netflix, telling people what to do will “empower” them.

Leftism is getting very, very weird.

On one hand, the Sexual Revolution is still going full-throttle, you’re supposed to “have sex” as many times as physically possible, otherwise you’re a suspicious character, and if you’ve got a perversion, everybody else had better “celebrate” it or else.

But on the other hand, you’ve got this brand-new #MeToo hyper-puritanism, in which you’re not even allowed to look at anyone else beyond a count of five. Maybe they’ll figure out a way to Hook Up without looking at the other party, let alone learning his or her name or phone number. What do you want to bet that’s where they’re headed?

P.S.>> For some more than usually eloquent critiques of the current cultural scene, visit my “Playground Player chessforum” at and read the posts by our highly-esteemed colleague, “jessicafischerqueen.” Man! Is she comin’ at them with the jawbone of an ass, or what? Pardon me while I stand up and cheer!

  1. Fortunately there are still some of us left who recognize insanity. Unfortunately it’s not those who are insane that recognize it.

    1. See Jessica’s rant. She thinks this whole colossal edifice of idiocy is going to be brought down. I pray she’s right.

  2. Can you post a link to a specific rant? I tried searching the chess site but to no avail.

    Personally, I believe what we are seeing is purely satanic. This perverse, even self-contradictory, behavior is demented. By making sex cheap and meaningless, Satan has led people away from a Divine gift and corrupted it into something ugly.

    Yes, there’s a lot of sexual activity going on, but it’s not having a good effect on the human race. My making unbridled lust socially acceptable it has put a lot of people on the defensive. You can be accused of sexual harassment for merely complimenting someone. It’s bizarre.

    1. I have discovered that what I wanted to do with this is well beyond my computer skills. Very disappointing–she was really smokin’.

  3. When I was young and was told I couldn’t do something it made me want to do it all the more. For me, one of the greatest things about America is if I don’t like a job I can just quit (you know, take this job and shove it). I plan to look people in the eye as long as it is natural to do so.
