The High Cost of Dissent From the Leftist Orthodoxy

It may hit women harder (yeah, I know, I know). But, it is true that many women are deeply dependent on social acceptance.

Here is the story about one of those dissident women. She risked paying a huge price in her online business.

She makes a point about the fact that women, generally, only slam their victims publicly. They don't contact the subject of their bullying directly, through messaging or email. This would fit the idea that for women, this group bullying is a mechanism through which they publicly declare their allegiance to the group.

I remember that story. It makes plain just how completely, insanely, fascistically conformist the Left is. But note that the one thing that would have immunized the victim is the one thing she never thought to do: to tell her attackers to "Fuck off and die."

Perhaps women simply won't do that sort of thing. They should learn.

Apropos of nothing: Linda, in the future please consider incorporating the following syntactic atom in your links, right after the href atom:

target="_blank"

If you include that atom, when clicked the link will open either another window or a new tab (depends on the browser) to display the linked page. It's the preference of most Web readers.

It's a form of public signalling. Group allegiance is one signal they send. But there are others, like "I'm more moral than you" or "I'm a better/smarter/cuter person than you."

For women, generally speaking, these are performances designed to increase their own social stature in some fashion at the expense of someone else.

Thanks for the tip, Fran. I've created a snippet to automatically put that in.

Or, even easier, click on the New Window box when posting links. When I went to test my snippet, I found that - DUH, as Homer would say.
