    I think the HST references are funny, so keep it up Steve.

    And they are a reminder of what a whiny, thin skinned culture we have become. Naturally there are all kind of calls for the WSJ writer about Dr. Biden’s title to be fired. Mostly because he referred to her as “kiddo.”

    This might shape into a nice, heartwarming, silly-season news-waster.

    Jill Biden's various white knights and flunkies are really dumb. When they take a breath from demanding Feinstein's resignation (for senility, of all things) they lay right into Streisanding this one, remarkably ignorant of the only way political figures ever win from this type of small-ball fracas, i.e. by shrugging it off.

    You'd think, after this long in public life and 13 years with the bureaucratic degree, she'd already know all that -- but it'd be hilarious instead if her sycophant "Veep"-esque coterie had been going along with the white-coat shtick all this time.

    But if she's as clueless and uptight as Liz Warren was the lolmilk will flow from the lolcows.

    WSJ did print a self-righteous letter that just made it funnier for me:

    But more to the point, so I google her and sure enough the new news story on her is the media pressuring her to "disavow" some quick photo-op or something with a "white supremacist." It's just the same old stuff again and again and again

  13. In fairness to Jill Biden, she has often explained that the reason she insists on being called “Doctor” is to remind people that she is still teaching and intends to go on teaching while living in the White House. It isn’t as if she’s the sort of fool who imagines that people are more impressed with an academic credential than with the status of First Lady.

    • Replies: @Rooster10
    @Acilius

    It’s because of “muh feminism”. First Lady implies a secondary role to that of the POTUS, who also happens to be a man. Can’t have that, so they drudge on with the “her job is equal to his” mantra. Do you think she’s going to be teaching daily and grading papers... whatever “teaching” role she’s in, the class will be lucky to get a one-time pre-recorded zoom speech.

  14. A few other commenters have mentioned that other famous Ed.D holder, William H. Cosby Jr. Ed.D.

    In case anyone wants to defend the integrity of the Doctorate of Education as an academic credential, it should be pointed out that Dr. Cosby dropped out of high school, went on to drop out of college as an undergraduate, and only had honorary degrees prior to being admitted to UMass Amherst’s graduate education program. The whole thing is a sick joke and the fact that Dr. Jill Biden is insisting she be called doctor speaks volumes about her character and ego. Just look at what we now know about Dr. Cosby….

    Not that the current Ph.D system is much better. Anyone with the brains to get one ought to know better.

  15. The particular fixation of the “Doctor” title for Ph.D holder seems to be among boomers, just in my professional experience. Particularly among women.

    I’m working on my doctoral defense in China and my dissertation advisor, a early-40s white academic from Australia has never insisted on me referring to him as “Dr. X” in any professional or personal context. I guess you could say it’s because we’re members of a small pool of “like” people here in Zhongguo, but I think this is just because Gen Xers have a more adult view of the world than their parents’ generation and are less obsessed with the particularities of status.

    When I do my consultation work for the American university, it is all extremely formalized, particularly when dealing with administration, who insist on the terminology. Unsurprisingly, they are all 60+ — or at least look to be.

    I have two diplomas that I received previously: BS in Computer Science & MA in linguistics. My Ph.D will be in linguistics, but I won’t insist on the title — I’ve grown quite attached to my students calling me “(First Name) Laoshu”, which is an endearment title that the Chinese use to refer to their teachers. It is when they don’t use your first name that you know you’re being dragged.

    The linguistics types were generally more fastidious about credential acknowledgement than the compsci types, but I think this is because many in my specific arena double-dipped into neuroscience and speech pathology as well.

    Either way, Ph.Ds are only earned by roughly 2% of the population. Credentialing in general isn’t a sign of intelligence as much as it’s a sign of you being able to meet expectations. The primary reason I distrust people without university diplomas is that it’s clear that they don’t value the same things I do. This explains more of the 2020 red/blue split than any of the race ideology stuff.

    This is a great way of putting it. Some people may be too smart and independent to graduate college, but generally speaking if you can't get it together enough to sit down and learn for four years, you are probably an unbearable asshole.

    This is the main reason I won't join the Republican party, no matter how sympathetic I am toward their platform. The dumbest white people I know, the ones I can't stand to be around for more than 30 seconds, are ALL Republican and they ALL voted for Trump. I don't admit to voting for Trump in public because I don't want to be associated with these cretins. I look at a Trump rally and I see a land that evolution forgot.

    What is it with you, anyway?

    You don't like Trump, and you don't like his voters. Okay. We get it. But what do you hope to accomplish by trolling around this site and getting into pissing matches with random commenters, other than cementing your reputation as an obnoxious prick?

    Does the average Dem think Biden will be transformational? I seriously doubt it. I think most Dem voters just want to go back to work, end the riots, and enjoy the holidays with their families.
     
    So you're saying that they're too stupid to figure out that they're voting for a radical leftist agenda? I'm not inclined to disagree.

    Trump’s endless cold war with the institutions that facilitate the smooth operation of our global economy got us COVID, an increased trade deficit with the Chinese, and a bunch of working class whites who think their opinion matters.
     
    You're trying to convey an aura of smug self-superiority - "I sneer at those stupid Trump voters who've deluded themselves into believing their opinion matters!" - but you're trying too hard.

    An insecure loser always reveals himself through the shrillness of his screeching, the pettiness of his nasty remarks, the sheer virulence of his hatred. He's got a chip on his shoulder; he needs to pick fights to prove his manhood; he needs to convince himself that he's "winning" (however he defines the term) the arguments that he starts.

    If you honestly believe that you are the smartest guy in the room, this is how you express genuine contempt for the insects crawling at your feet:

    I am an intellectual giant. Compared to me, the vast majority of people are mindless vermin. I go through life cultivating a sense of utter revulsion toward the drooling dolts with whom I have the misfortune of conversing. But I don't need to convince them of my superiority, or to rub their inferiority in their faces. (For one thing, they're too dumb to realize just how mind-bogglingly stupid they really are. My arguments are so sophisticated that they can't even begin to understand them.) Let the kiddies play in their sandboxes and shit in their litterboxes while they remain blissfully unaware of the magnitude of their insignificance. Tt's all the same to me.

    You insult your lessers casually and dismissively, but you don't go overboard, because you don't care enough about their feelings to try to make them feel bad.

    Stay frosty, my friend.

    a bunch of working class whites who think their opinion matters
     
    According to you, they're nothing more than soulless automatons, empty vessels for Trumpian bullshit, brain-dead NPCs. Why do you care what they think? The opinions of cockroaches are of no consequence to you.

    Why do you need to keep piling on? Your guy won, didn't he? Why can't you be gracious in victory?

    I’m a white, post-graduate degree holder who voted for Trump in 2016 as a firm rejection of Hillary Clinton.
     
    It's good to know that you're not totally insane.

    I work in China, so I had no obligations from the woke scolds who occupy the University system in the States, no niggers who would come burn down my house if they learned I voted Trump.
     
    Huh. For someone who brags about his credentials, you certainly express yourself in a very crude manner.

    After 4 years of patiently observing this cuck bend the knee to Israel, abandon his friends, liberate his enemies and allow every Democrat to gaslight him into COVID tyranny in March, I knew exactly what to do. I took a train to the US embassy in Beijing from Dalian and voted for Joesph Robinette Biden. And several GOP politicians downballot.
     
    You opposed the lockdowns ... so you voted for Biden? Evidently you've been educated well beyond your intelligence.

    You express a deep, burning hatred of white proles, and proclaim your solidarity with well-educated white liberals:

    That’s what I voted for! I’ll finish working in China and then hopefully retire to some post-racial community in Wisconsin while the white working class is driven to slave-like conditions. They’ll be my domestic servants, hopefully.
     

    The primary reason I distrust people without university diplomas is that it’s clear that they don’t value the same things I do.
     
    And yet you left the United States because you opposed gay marriage, the well-educated-white-liberal cause célèbre of the first Obama term:

    Fag marriage was the point at which I decided America was lost. Best of luck with your collapsing gay empire.
     
    Support for gay marriage has always correlated strongly with educational attainment. The proles kept voting against it and the "woke scolds" kept voting for it until the gay lobby finally rammed it through the courts:

    https://www.mercurynews.com/2008/12/03/education-and-income-were-strong-factors-in-vote-against-gay-marriage/

    Among Californians with a high school diploma or less, 69 percent voted for [a ban on gay marriage]. Among college graduates, 57 percent voted against it.
     
    So what's your take on this phenomenon - your beloved "smart" people supporting such stupid policies? Why is it that so many overcredentialed buffoons end up swallowing the leftist Kool-Aid and becoming insufferable scolds?

    At any rate, there's no point in my getting into a tiff with you. No doubt you'll respond to this comment with a word salad of sneering putdowns. Feel free to hurl as many vicious insults at me as you can muster.

  16. Somewhat OT, that house whose residents got evicted for not paying their home loan, which eviction provoked the latest Portland armed insurrection? As seems always to be the case, there’s a little bit more to the story, and as always, it takes a while to come out.

    The Oregon family whose eviction sparked Portland’s armed “autonomous zone” protest also own another house nearby — and have raised $30,000 more than they need to buy back the one they lost, according to reports.

    The Kinney family, who lost the so-called “Red House on Mississippi” after defaulting on a second mortgage to pay legal fees in a criminal case, have since 1966 also owned a second home less than 2 miles away, Oregon Public Broadcasting first reported.

    One of the owners’ sons, Michael Kinney, answered the door at the second home and confirmed to a reporter for OPB that it was owned by his family, but refused to answer more questions, the station said.

    It's the fact that she's one of those snotty types who insist on her title no matter what. It's unseemly and points to a deep insecurity about her actual intellectual capacity. Like that guy in The Office who used to always bring up the fact that he went to Cornell, who needed to do it to make himself feel superior to all the other drones.

    I've known people like that---always announcing their title or their college---and they are always insufferable, insecure folk with no real accomplishments outside their degree or college. Merely calling them "Mr." or "Ms." instead of by their title, or mistaking which college they went to, was a quick way to ruin their day.

    I agree. I have earned four university degrees, but no doctorate. (No, my Juris Doctor degree is not a doctorate; it is just a professional degree, rebranded from the traditional Bachelor of Laws degree.) Anyone who has earned a bona fide doctorate, in whichever academic discipline-- as opposed to having paid for a "doctorate" from a "diploma mill"-- is entitled to call herself "Doctor [Whomever]"; no one else is required to call her by her preferred title, of course. To make a big deal about her doing so is quite petty and unseemly, in my opinion.

    It’s the fact that she’s one of those snotty types who insist on her title no matter what. It’s unseemly and points to a deep insecurity about her actual intellectual capacity. Like that guy in The Office who used to always bring up the fact that he went to Cornell, who needed to do it to make himself feel superior to all the other drones.

    I’ve known people like that—always announcing their title or their college—and they are always insufferable, insecure folk with no real accomplishments outside their degree or college. Merely calling them “Mr.” or “Ms.” instead of by their title, or mistaking which college they went to, was a quick way to ruin their day.

    Nice! I tweeted that clip. It’s a perfect summary of clown world thinking.

  28. Your comment on an earlier thread that 95% of EdDs are public education employees bucking for a raise: you nailed it exactly. At any state university, enrollment in graduate education courses is almost entirely dependent on local public education authorities funding college courses for their employees.

    I’ll add one anecdote. I had an intelligent but vain graduate student, who could not accept that he was not the top student in our program. He dropped out and enrolled instead in a nearby university’s top-20 EdD program. Before he left, I heard him tell a fellow student that the EdD program amounted to nothing more than “serving seat time.” I laughed to myself, but that student had the last laugh: within four years he had his doctorate and was hired by my university for a high administrative position, at twice my salary, and proceeded to use his position to annoy everyone in my department.

    It is pretentious and boorish behavior by our alleged next First Lady he is pointing out. The other women you mentioned did not use a pretend advanced degree as a putative PhD or MD for those who didn’t know better, and the only real complaint generated against Trump was his boorish behavior over the decades.

  31. The point of elevating the societal status of medical doctors is that you need to trust them to do something painful and dangerous to you, like cut you open in surgery or prescribe chemo drugs that have horrible effects. For other disciplines the point is to judge the argument itself. Weighting that correctness by the title of advocate is a bad process, which is why society deemphasizes it.

    The Superintendent of Public Instruction was traditionally an elected official, but now only ten states continue to do so. In such states, the officeholder’s main credential is an endorsement from the teachers union. The appointed ones are simply political cronies.

    California’s SPI is elected. He’s a totally empty suit and a career tax leech (including terms in the state assembly).

    The Illinois SPI is an appointee. The current one has a PhD in Education Leadership & Policy Studies. The recently-departed head of the notoriously dreadful, DC schools is a Harvard lawyer.

    "an education Ph.D."

    Most (all?) universities grant Ed.D.s not Ph.D.s to the timeserving but compliant morons who comprise the graduate student body of ed schools.

    Traditionally, Ph.D.s are for people in Arts and Sciences schools (physical, life, and social sciences along with humanities).

    Law Schools, B Schools, Pharmacy Schools, Medical Schools, Ed Schools, etc grant some other thing as their "doctorate" degree.

    Every time I read a story about some political decision made by a failing (of course), public school district, I search to find out more about the superintendent.

    Are there any, public school district supers who don’t hold a EdD?

    The Superintendent of Falls Church SD (that’s the one dropping TJ’s name from one of its schools), Dr. Noonan, makes $225K/yr. Great SJW.

    Dr. Jackson, Chicago, makes $260K.
    Carranza, NYC, is completing his doctorate. $345K. They’re not the highest paid superintendents in their (dis-)respective states, by the way.

    The Superintendent of Public Instruction was traditionally an elected official, but now only ten states continue to do so. In such states, the officeholder’s main credential is an endorsement from the teachers union. The appointed ones are simply political cronies.

    California’s SPI is elected. He’s a totally empty suit and a career tax leech (including terms in the state assembly).

    The Illinois SPI is an appointee. The current one has a PhD in Education Leadership & Policy Studies. The recently-departed head of the notoriously dreadful, DC schools is a Harvard lawyer.

    You get the picture.

    I can tell you that the superintendent of our successful home school had no credential or formal training in education, and took no salary.

    I agree. I have earned four university degrees, but no doctorate. (No, my Juris Doctor degree is not a doctorate; it is just a professional degree, rebranded from the traditional Bachelor of Laws degree.) Anyone who has earned a bona fide doctorate, in whichever academic discipline-- as opposed to having paid for a "doctorate" from a "diploma mill"-- is entitled to call herself "Doctor [Whomever]"; no one else is required to call her by her preferred title, of course. To make a big deal about her doing so is quite petty and unseemly, in my opinion.

    Your comment on an earlier thread that 95% of EdDs are public education employees bucking for a raise: you nailed it exactly. At any state university, enrollment in graduate education courses is almost entirely dependent on local public education authorities funding college courses for their employees.

    I'll add one anecdote. I had an intelligent but vain graduate student, who could not accept that he was not the top student in our program. He dropped out and enrolled instead in a nearby university's top-20 EdD program. Before he left, I heard him tell a fellow student that the EdD program amounted to nothing more than "serving seat time." I laughed to myself, but that student had the last laugh: within four years he had his doctorate and was hired by my university for a high administrative position, at twice my salary, and proceeded to use his position to annoy everyone in my department.

    A few other commenters have mentioned that other famous Ed.D holder, William H. Cosby Jr. Ed.D.

    In case anyone wants to defend the integrity of the Doctorate of Education as an academic credential, it should be pointed out that Dr. Cosby dropped out of high school, went on to drop out of college as an undergraduate, and only had honorary degrees prior to being admitted to UMass Amherst's graduate education program. The whole thing is a sick joke and the fact that Dr. Jill Biden is insisting she be called doctor speaks volumes about her character and ego. Just look at what we now know about Dr. Cosby....

  67. Zero use for the scummy traitor Biden. And Jill’s “call me Doctor” bit is pathetic.

    But i do appreciate the fightin’ Jill.

    Women have a natural nose for/attraction to status. The evolutionary purpose is for them to figure out who is the highest status “fittest” male they can land and mate with him. (A woman mating with a loser is … bad.)

    In our disordered modern world, a lot of women are trying to pursue status for themselves, through their career (more more hilariously playing college football). Then they are confused when it doesn’t result in men–the men they want–swooning over them.

    The deal is men just don’t care about a woman’s status. Basically they want sex with a reproductively fit woman. And in a wife, they further want pleasant company, good genes, signs she’s be a good mother and good character–especially loyalty. Of course, what a woman is doing, may indicate some of those characteristics. (AnotherMom’s academic work was certainly a signal of intelligence, drive, persistence and middle class values i valued.) But we really don’t care about a woman’s status, per se.

    Jill Biden’ knows her status flows from her husband–whom she’s invested her life in. She had a chance to be #1 wife in the status hierarchy. And she wasn’t about to let some vegan freaks diminish or embarrass the man her status flows from. She’ll get in there and put the whoop ass on ’em if necessary.

    The particular fixation of the "Doctor" title for Ph.D holder seems to be among boomers, just in my professional experience. Particularly among women.

    I'm working on my doctoral defense in China and my dissertation advisor, a early-40s white academic from Australia has never insisted on me referring to him as "Dr. X" in any professional or personal context. I guess you could say it's because we're members of a small pool of "like" people here in Zhongguo, but I think this is just because Gen Xers have a more adult view of the world than their parents' generation and are less obsessed with the particularities of status.

    When I do my consultation work for the American university, it is all extremely formalized, particularly when dealing with administration, who insist on the terminology. Unsurprisingly, they are all 60+ -- or at least look to be.

    I have two diplomas that I received previously: BS in Computer Science & MA in linguistics. My Ph.D will be in linguistics, but I won't insist on the title -- I've grown quite attached to my students calling me "(First Name) Laoshu", which is an endearment title that the Chinese use to refer to their teachers. It is when they don't use your first name that you know you're being dragged.

    The linguistics types were generally more fastidious about credential acknowledgement than the compsci types, but I think this is because many in my specific arena double-dipped into neuroscience and speech pathology as well.

    Either way, Ph.Ds are only earned by roughly 2% of the population. Credentialing in general isn't a sign of intelligence as much as it's a sign of you being able to meet expectations. The primary reason I distrust people without university diplomas is that it's clear that they don't value the same things I do.

    Some Hindu Dindu can replace you and yours easily and cheaply enough. For tech stuff, there is an army of H1-Bs and Chinese people to hire. They may not be very good but there ten times cheaper. Meanwhile even in Government Jobs Educated White people are toast. How can you not understand DIE DIE DIE (Diversity Inclusion Equity) as the message to Whitey. You yourself -- there is a black person and even better a black lesbian transgender who can do your job. And because black lesbian transgender, much much better. Just ask that Wise Latina. Indeed the future unless you stick with the proles is one where you are sitting under an overpass eating bugs all day. Quite literally. And that's the good outcome.

    Primate 101 -- Unless you stick with the males of your tribe, Alpha and Beta and Omega and everything else, the other males from the other tribe will kill you all and your male children and take your wives and daughters. That's it. That's how primates are. The ugly hick Trump voters understand that. But somehow you think your non-White co-workers and the like actually LIKE you and would risk their lives to save you somehow from the Rwanda purge that's coming. Its about as dumb as cutting off one's man parts and committing suicide to hitch a ride on a spaceship behind a comet. And I thought that was the dumbest thing I'd ever seen.

While grabbing every gun and forcing a lockdown that never ends and then no more meat, fish, chicken, eggs, milk etc. just bugs and sewer water for the Great Reset like that idiot Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum (a recipe for violent revolution if ever I saw one). Then as state after state rebels and starts a soft secession she's likely to call in ... the Chinese Military in desperation to touch off a Civil War 2.0 with nukes and foreign intervention and Magdeburg Quarter.

    In fairness to Jill Biden, she has often explained that the reason she insists on being called "Doctor" is to remind people that she is still teaching and intends to go on teaching while living in the White House. It isn't as if she's the sort of fool who imagines that people are more impressed with an academic credential than with the status of First Lady.

    Replies: @Rooster10

    It’s because of “muh feminism”. First Lady implies a secondary role to that of the POTUS, who also happens to be a man. Can’t have that, so they drudge on with the “her job is equal to his” mantra. Do you think she’s going to be teaching daily and grading papers… whatever “teaching” role she’s in, the class will be lucky to get a one-time pre-recorded zoom speech.

    The primary reason I distrust people without university diplomas is that it’s clear that they don’t value the same things I do.
     
    This is a great way of putting it. Some people may be too smart and independent to graduate college, but generally speaking if you can't get it together enough to sit down and learn for four years, you are probably an unbearable asshole.

    This is the main reason I won't join the Republican party, no matter how sympathetic I am toward their platform. The dumbest white people I know, the ones I can't stand to be around for more than 30 seconds, are ALL Republican and they ALL voted for Trump. I don't admit to voting for Trump in public because I don't want to be associated with these cretins. I look at a Trump rally and I see a land that evolution forgot.

    Which is why Trump supporters are smarter than you. Smart enough to add two and two all day and always get four. Their lack of status and … deplorableness eliminates snobbery and the view that someone is better than someone else because of a degree or the car in the driveway.

    They know they got the shaft — their wages stay the same decade after decade while food and housing prices go up and up and up. Your class is so stupid they can’t figure out they are just as disposable to the Tech Oligarchs as Joe Sixpack was decades ago.

    Some Hindu Dindu can replace you and yours easily and cheaply enough. For tech stuff, there is an army of H1-Bs and Chinese people to hire. They may not be very good but there ten times cheaper. Meanwhile even in Government Jobs Educated White people are toast. How can you not understand DIE DIE DIE (Diversity Inclusion Equity) as the message to Whitey. You yourself — there is a black person and even better a black lesbian transgender who can do your job. And because black lesbian transgender, much much better. Just ask that Wise Latina. Indeed the future unless you stick with the proles is one where you are sitting under an overpass eating bugs all day. Quite literally. And that’s the good outcome.

    Primate 101 — Unless you stick with the males of your tribe, Alpha and Beta and Omega and everything else, the other males from the other tribe will kill you all and your male children and take your wives and daughters. That’s it. That’s how primates are. The ugly hick Trump voters understand that. But somehow you think your non-White co-workers and the like actually LIKE you and would risk their lives to save you somehow from the Rwanda purge that’s coming. Its about as dumb as cutting off one’s man parts and committing suicide to hitch a ride on a spaceship behind a comet. And I thought that was the dumbest thing I’d ever seen.
    ————–
    As for Dr. Jill — she’s a disaster. Stupid, arrogant, sheltered, vengeful, I’m getting a Marie Antoinette vibe off her already. She’s stupid enough to push Biden ahead in Defund the Police (in a leaked call he said he would but don’t like Fight Club talk about it). While grabbing every gun and forcing a lockdown that never ends and then no more meat, fish, chicken, eggs, milk etc. just bugs and sewer water for the Great Reset like that idiot Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum (a recipe for violent revolution if ever I saw one). Then as state after state rebels and starts a soft secession she’s likely to call in … the Chinese Military in desperation to touch off a Civil War 2.0 with nukes and foreign intervention and Magdeburg Quarter.

    A community college teacher as President. Really? At least Obama had some acquaintance with the world, sheltered though he was in the main. He knew when to play Golf. Dr. Jill being female and stupid won’t figure it out in time.

    If you would shut up about the 1 percent of black men in Orange County stealing all the White women away you would be a great commenter.

    First 4 paragraphs about affirmative action taking every job from mail carrier to judge, dishwasher to medical doctor is A++++, excellent.

  79. I think that all this fuss that women are making over calling Jill Biden “Doctor” is because they’re embarrassed that so many First Spouses have been women, and now here, in spite of their best efforts, is yet another one.

    At last, a Presidency in which there is no First Lady, but instead the more prestigious ‘Doctor.”

    It really defuses the whole thing. Instead of hearing “Hey look, it’s the President and the First Lady”, they will hear “Look, here comes the President and the First Doctor.”

    Given Joe’s obvious infirmities, that might actually reassure a lot of people.

  80. I visited Dr. Biden in 2018, for a terrible rash. She had a terrific, very compassionate approach to my condition. I followed her recommendation and read several articles written by the dermatologist, Dr. Ta-Nehisi Coates. I followed Dr. Coates directions to dye my skin with a deep black, fully organic and sustainable dye.

    Within a week the rash disappeared. More importantly, I was less frequently violently assaulted by the neighborhood African-Americans. I think Dr. Biden is a great doctor, a genius really.

    I understand that President Joe Biden’s brother, James, is also involved in healthcare. Things are about to really improve for all Americans.

    Zero use for the scummy traitor Biden. And Jill's "call me Doctor" bit is pathetic.

    But i do appreciate the fightin' Jill.

    Women have a natural nose for/attraction to status. The evolutionary purpose is for them to figure out who is the highest status "fittest" male they can land and mate with him. (A woman mating with a loser is ... bad.)

    In our disordered modern world, a lot of women are trying to pursue status for themselves, through their career (more more hilariously playing college football). Then they are confused when it doesn't result in men--the men they want--swooning over them.

    The deal is men just don't care about a woman's status. Basically they want sex with a reproductively fit woman. And in a wife, they further want pleasant company, good genes, signs she's be a good mother and good character--especially loyalty. Of course, what a woman is doing, may indicate some of those characteristics. (AnotherMom's academic work was certainly a signal of intelligence, drive, persistence and middle class values i valued.) But we really don't care about a woman's status, per se.

    Jill Biden' knows her status flows from her husband--whom she's invested her life in. She had a chance to be #1 wife in the status hierarchy. And she wasn't about to let some vegan freaks diminish or embarrass the man her status flows from. She'll get in there and put the whoop ass on 'em if necessary.

    Loyal wife--good for her.

    It's the fact that she's one of those snotty types who insist on her title no matter what. It's unseemly and points to a deep insecurity about her actual intellectual capacity. Like that guy in The Office who used to always bring up the fact that he went to Cornell, who needed to do it to make himself feel superior to all the other drones.

    I've known people like that---always announcing their title or their college---and they are always insufferable, insecure folk with no real accomplishments outside their degree or college. Merely calling them "Mr." or "Ms." instead of by their title, or mistaking which college they went to, was a quick way to ruin their day.

    I never cared about Melania or Marla's degrees, and neither did the President. They were just hot chicks with the good sense to cozy up to him.

    Explains his “dementia”

  111. I’ve heard it from various profs over years that the doctorate can be pretty elastic as to its actual meaning. If you got a doctorate in physics in the early 20th century, you may participate in radically altering how we look at the universe. Doctorates in medicine and law are vocational. Doctorates in the humanities are often regarded as the emptiest of empty credentials.

    After the Ph. D. is conferred, circumstances of actual employment make a difference. If the best you can do is a lower-tier university where uppity but very bright junior faculty are bullied about by department chairs, you may lose your intellectual edge and hunger to make a mark.

    The particular fixation of the "Doctor" title for Ph.D holder seems to be among boomers, just in my professional experience. Particularly among women.

    I'm working on my doctoral defense in China and my dissertation advisor, a early-40s white academic from Australia has never insisted on me referring to him as "Dr. X" in any professional or personal context. I guess you could say it's because we're members of a small pool of "like" people here in Zhongguo, but I think this is just because Gen Xers have a more adult view of the world than their parents' generation and are less obsessed with the particularities of status.

    When I do my consultation work for the American university, it is all extremely formalized, particularly when dealing with administration, who insist on the terminology. Unsurprisingly, they are all 60+ -- or at least look to be.

    I have two diplomas that I received previously: BS in Computer Science & MA in linguistics. My Ph.D will be in linguistics, but I won't insist on the title -- I've grown quite attached to my students calling me "(First Name) Laoshu", which is an endearment title that the Chinese use to refer to their teachers. It is when they don't use your first name that you know you're being dragged.

    The linguistics types were generally more fastidious about credential acknowledgement than the compsci types, but I think this is because many in my specific arena double-dipped into neuroscience and speech pathology as well.

    Either way, Ph.Ds are only earned by roughly 2% of the population. Credentialing in general isn't a sign of intelligence as much as it's a sign of you being able to meet expectations. The primary reason I distrust people without university diplomas is that it's clear that they don't value the same things I do. This explains more of the 2020 red/blue split than any of the race ideology stuff.

    What is it with you, anyway?

    You don’t like Trump, and you don’t like his voters. Okay. We get it. But what do you hope to accomplish by trolling around this site and getting into pissing matches with random commenters, other than cementing your reputation as an obnoxious prick?

    Does the average Dem think Biden will be transformational? I seriously doubt it. I think most Dem voters just want to go back to work, end the riots, and enjoy the holidays with their families.

    So you’re saying that they’re too stupid to figure out that they’re voting for a radical leftist agenda? I’m not inclined to disagree.

    Trump’s endless cold war with the institutions that facilitate the smooth operation of our global economy got us COVID, an increased trade deficit with the Chinese, and a bunch of working class whites who think their opinion matters.

    You’re trying to convey an aura of smug self-superiority – “I sneer at those stupid Trump voters who’ve deluded themselves into believing their opinion matters!” – but you’re trying too hard.

    An insecure loser always reveals himself through the shrillness of his screeching, the pettiness of his nasty remarks, the sheer virulence of his hatred. He’s got a chip on his shoulder; he needs to pick fights to prove his manhood; he needs to convince himself that he’s “winning” (however he defines the term) the arguments that he starts.

    If you honestly believe that you are the smartest guy in the room, this is how you express genuine contempt for the insects crawling at your feet:

    I am an intellectual giant. Compared to me, the vast majority of people are mindless vermin. I go through life cultivating a sense of utter revulsion toward the drooling dolts with whom I have the misfortune of conversing. But I don’t need to convince them of my superiority, or to rub their inferiority in their faces. (For one thing, they’re too dumb to realize just how mind-bogglingly stupid they really are. My arguments are so sophisticated that they can’t even begin to understand them.) Let the kiddies play in their sandboxes and shit in their litterboxes while they remain blissfully unaware of the magnitude of their insignificance. Tt’s all the same to me.

    You insult your lessers casually and dismissively, but you don’t go overboard, because you don’t care enough about their feelings to try to make them feel bad.

    Stay frosty, my friend.

    a bunch of working class whites who think their opinion matters

    According to you, they’re nothing more than soulless automatons, empty vessels for Trumpian bullshit, brain-dead NPCs. Why do you care what they think? The opinions of cockroaches are of no consequence to you.

    Why do you need to keep piling on? Your guy won, didn’t he? Why can’t you be gracious in victory?

    I’m a white, post-graduate degree holder who voted for Trump in 2016 as a firm rejection of Hillary Clinton.

    It’s good to know that you’re not totally insane.

    I work in China, so I had no obligations from the woke scolds who occupy the University system in the States, no niggers who would come burn down my house if they learned I voted Trump.

    Huh. For someone who brags about his credentials, you certainly express yourself in a very crude manner.

    After 4 years of patiently observing this cuck bend the knee to Israel, abandon his friends, liberate his enemies and allow every Democrat to gaslight him into COVID tyranny in March, I knew exactly what to do. I took a train to the US embassy in Beijing from Dalian and voted for Joesph Robinette Biden. And several GOP politicians downballot.

    You opposed the lockdowns … so you voted for Biden? Evidently you’ve been educated well beyond your intelligence.

    You express a deep, burning hatred of white proles, and proclaim your solidarity with well-educated white liberals:

    That’s what I voted for! I’ll finish working in China and then hopefully retire to some post-racial community in Wisconsin while the white working class is driven to slave-like conditions. They’ll be my domestic servants, hopefully.

    The primary reason I distrust people without university diplomas is that it’s clear that they don’t value the same things I do.

    And yet you left the United States because you opposed gay marriage, the well-educated-white-liberal cause célèbre of the first Obama term:

    Fag marriage was the point at which I decided America was lost. Best of luck with your collapsing gay empire.

    Support for gay marriage has always correlated strongly with educational attainment. The proles kept voting against it and the “woke scolds” kept voting for it until the gay lobby finally rammed it through the courts:

    https://www.mercurynews.com/2008/12/03/education-and-income-were-strong-factors-in-vote-against-gay-marriage/

    Among Californians with a high school diploma or less, 69 percent voted for [a ban on gay marriage]. Among college graduates, 57 percent voted against it.

    So what’s your take on this phenomenon – your beloved “smart” people supporting such stupid policies? Why is it that so many overcredentialed buffoons end up swallowing the leftist Kool-Aid and becoming insufferable scolds?

    At any rate, there’s no point in my getting into a tiff with you. No doubt you’ll respond to this comment with a word salad of sneering putdowns. Feel free to hurl as many vicious insults at me as you can muster.

    They’re certainly more useful. Like any other field you have good ones and bad ones.

  128. Titles create hierarchy. Therefore, they are useful within their realm of operation. A medical doctor is right to insist on being called “Doctor” by his patients and staff. Similarly, with academics and their peers or students. And for a President, by the residents of that nation.

    Further, it’s often right and proper to refer to someone by their title as a sign of respect, even outside of that realm. But this is generally voluntary or situational.

    When titles are insisted upon outside of these, it’s obnoxious. Primarily, because the titles are used to create a hierarchy where none should exist. And secondly, because the titles in common use are largely a historical artifact and have little relationship to merit.

    If you support enforced titles, you should refer to everyone by one fact of their choosing (their wealth, IQ, job title, award they’ve won, etc).

    The number of women (especially over the age of 30) who appear presentable without wearing any makeup and without any attempt at hair styling is very very low. Most women need at least a little help to present the kind of appearance that is expected in our society. This is not to say that they need to be painted up like clowns. The ideal amount of makeup for a woman is an amount that doesn't call attention to itself and that looks like she isn't wearing any, but that is different from actually not wearing any. You want to give the ILLUSION of nature which is not the same thing as nature itself.

    Plastic surgery is another thing that should be avoided - it rarely looks like anything other than plastic surgery. If you can tell that the person has had plastic surgery then they've had too much.

    She's a naturally frumpy and funny looking person. The grooming helps her, even if it may seem excessive or tacky. That along with any plastic surgery she might've had.

    You don't like Trump, and you don't like his voters. Okay. We get it. But what do you hope to accomplish by trolling around this site and getting into pissing matches with random commenters, other than cementing your reputation as an obnoxious prick?

    Does the average Dem think Biden will be transformational? I seriously doubt it. I think most Dem voters just want to go back to work, end the riots, and enjoy the holidays with their families.
     
    So you're saying that they're too stupid to figure out that they're voting for a radical leftist agenda? I'm not inclined to disagree.

    Trump’s endless cold war with the institutions that facilitate the smooth operation of our global economy got us COVID, an increased trade deficit with the Chinese, and a bunch of working class whites who think their opinion matters.
     
    You're trying to convey an aura of smug self-superiority - "I sneer at those stupid Trump voters who've deluded themselves into believing their opinion matters!" - but you're trying too hard.

    An insecure loser always reveals himself through the shrillness of his screeching, the pettiness of his nasty remarks, the sheer virulence of his hatred. He's got a chip on his shoulder; he needs to pick fights to prove his manhood; he needs to convince himself that he's "winning" (however he defines the term) the arguments that he starts.

    If you honestly believe that you are the smartest guy in the room, this is how you express genuine contempt for the insects crawling at your feet:

    I am an intellectual giant. Compared to me, the vast majority of people are mindless vermin. I go through life cultivating a sense of utter revulsion toward the drooling dolts with whom I have the misfortune of conversing. But I don't need to convince them of my superiority, or to rub their inferiority in their faces. (For one thing, they're too dumb to realize just how mind-bogglingly stupid they really are. My arguments are so sophisticated that they can't even begin to understand them.) Let the kiddies play in their sandboxes and shit in their litterboxes while they remain blissfully unaware of the magnitude of their insignificance. Tt's all the same to me.

    You insult your lessers casually and dismissively, but you don't go overboard, because you don't care enough about their feelings to try to make them feel bad.

    Stay frosty, my friend.

    a bunch of working class whites who think their opinion matters
     
    According to you, they're nothing more than soulless automatons, empty vessels for Trumpian bullshit, brain-dead NPCs. Why do you care what they think? The opinions of cockroaches are of no consequence to you.

    Why do you need to keep piling on? Your guy won, didn't he? Why can't you be gracious in victory?

    I’m a white, post-graduate degree holder who voted for Trump in 2016 as a firm rejection of Hillary Clinton.
     
    It's good to know that you're not totally insane.

    I work in China, so I had no obligations from the woke scolds who occupy the University system in the States, no niggers who would come burn down my house if they learned I voted Trump.
     
    Huh. For someone who brags about his credentials, you certainly express yourself in a very crude manner.

    After 4 years of patiently observing this cuck bend the knee to Israel, abandon his friends, liberate his enemies and allow every Democrat to gaslight him into COVID tyranny in March, I knew exactly what to do. I took a train to the US embassy in Beijing from Dalian and voted for Joesph Robinette Biden. And several GOP politicians downballot.
     
    You opposed the lockdowns ... so you voted for Biden? Evidently you've been educated well beyond your intelligence.

    You express a deep, burning hatred of white proles, and proclaim your solidarity with well-educated white liberals:

    That’s what I voted for! I’ll finish working in China and then hopefully retire to some post-racial community in Wisconsin while the white working class is driven to slave-like conditions. They’ll be my domestic servants, hopefully.
     

    The primary reason I distrust people without university diplomas is that it’s clear that they don’t value the same things I do.
     
    And yet you left the United States because you opposed gay marriage, the well-educated-white-liberal cause célèbre of the first Obama term:

    Fag marriage was the point at which I decided America was lost. Best of luck with your collapsing gay empire.
     
    Support for gay marriage has always correlated strongly with educational attainment. The proles kept voting against it and the "woke scolds" kept voting for it until the gay lobby finally rammed it through the courts:

    https://www.mercurynews.com/2008/12/03/education-and-income-were-strong-factors-in-vote-against-gay-marriage/

    Among Californians with a high school diploma or less, 69 percent voted for [a ban on gay marriage]. Among college graduates, 57 percent voted against it.
     
    So what's your take on this phenomenon - your beloved "smart" people supporting such stupid policies? Why is it that so many overcredentialed buffoons end up swallowing the leftist Kool-Aid and becoming insufferable scolds?

    At any rate, there's no point in my getting into a tiff with you. No doubt you'll respond to this comment with a word salad of sneering putdowns. Feel free to hurl as many vicious insults at me as you can muster.

    Zero use for the scummy traitor Biden. And Jill's "call me Doctor" bit is pathetic.

    But i do appreciate the fightin' Jill.

    Women have a natural nose for/attraction to status. The evolutionary purpose is for them to figure out who is the highest status "fittest" male they can land and mate with him. (A woman mating with a loser is ... bad.)

    In our disordered modern world, a lot of women are trying to pursue status for themselves, through their career (more more hilariously playing college football). Then they are confused when it doesn't result in men--the men they want--swooning over them.

    The deal is men just don't care about a woman's status. Basically they want sex with a reproductively fit woman. And in a wife, they further want pleasant company, good genes, signs she's be a good mother and good character--especially loyalty. Of course, what a woman is doing, may indicate some of those characteristics. (AnotherMom's academic work was certainly a signal of intelligence, drive, persistence and middle class values i valued.) But we really don't care about a woman's status, per se.

    Jill Biden' knows her status flows from her husband--whom she's invested her life in. She had a chance to be #1 wife in the status hierarchy. And she wasn't about to let some vegan freaks diminish or embarrass the man her status flows from. She'll get in there and put the whoop ass on 'em if necessary.

    Loyal wife--good for her.

    I've literally been using the "I know you are but what am I" rule with SJWs since I learned about their projection issue, and its amazing. Merely calling them the exact same slur they just called me makes them flip out, get defensive, get demoralized, and otherwise lose their cool/direction.

    This is true even when they realize I am doing it. Merely literally mirroring their slurs against you right back to them is enough to causes their brains to break down and their arguing to fall apart in frustration and reeeing. Even conscious of my technique, they cannot help but be pained and broken down by it.

    Now, it doesn't "win" the fight with an SJW, but merely following the mirroring rule does cause it to become a draw, which is all I can do. I'll leave the amygdala hijack stuff and total victory to the Vox Days and anonymous conservatives types. I'm not in their league, I just want to protect myself.

    But trust me: it is amazingly simple and powerful, a cheat code. And all it requires is your listening to their little rant for the key word slurs they hurl. You just listen, say it back, and keep repeating it---don't just do it once, any slur they dropped is painful to them.

    That Odo look is really the product of Botox more than surgery. Look at John Kerry before and after. Relaxing those muscles in the forehead has the effect of stretching the eyebrows out horizontally and creating the Odo/Na'vi look. The paradoxical thing is that it never makes one look younger--just different. In older women I think it's becoming a marker of wealth, since youth is really beyond their grasp.

    OT: Here in the home of the earliest and longest lockdowns, I've notice a kind of signaling amongst young fit teenage and youngish women that I remember from my youth--the exposed midriff. With so much that used to signal youth (in the face) forcibly covered, they've gone to the places not so encumbered and extremely difficult for the Helen Hunts of the world to fake.

    The particular fixation of the "Doctor" title for Ph.D holder seems to be among boomers, just in my professional experience. Particularly among women.

    I'm working on my doctoral defense in China and my dissertation advisor, a early-40s white academic from Australia has never insisted on me referring to him as "Dr. X" in any professional or personal context. I guess you could say it's because we're members of a small pool of "like" people here in Zhongguo, but I think this is just because Gen Xers have a more adult view of the world than their parents' generation and are less obsessed with the particularities of status.

    When I do my consultation work for the American university, it is all extremely formalized, particularly when dealing with administration, who insist on the terminology. Unsurprisingly, they are all 60+ -- or at least look to be.

    I have two diplomas that I received previously: BS in Computer Science & MA in linguistics. My Ph.D will be in linguistics, but I won't insist on the title -- I've grown quite attached to my students calling me "(First Name) Laoshu", which is an endearment title that the Chinese use to refer to their teachers. It is when they don't use your first name that you know you're being dragged.

    The linguistics types were generally more fastidious about credential acknowledgement than the compsci types, but I think this is because many in my specific arena double-dipped into neuroscience and speech pathology as well.

    Either way, Ph.Ds are only earned by roughly 2% of the population. Credentialing in general isn't a sign of intelligence as much as it's a sign of you being able to meet expectations. The primary reason I distrust people without university diplomas is that it's clear that they don't value the same things I do.

But I never ever see an Asian women with a Persian Armenian Arab Indian looking man. It’s always a fair skinned brown hair N European looking man. Even on college campuses where N European White men are scarce. Shortness is disgraceful in Asia. Means generations of malnutrition caused by poverty. Dark skin means coolie farm workers, lowest of the low.

    Another thing White men with Asian wives don’t realize is that daughter’s are not worth much in Asian culture. So they might as well marry out.
    “ Getting rid of a daughter in marriage is like throwing away the dirty dishwater”. Old Chinese saying. “ Feeding the girls is a a waste of food” is another.

    Sons are treasures. There is great great pressure in Asian sons to marry the right woman from the right country and ethnicity, home province , town, same general occupation, etc. Asian sons are told outright marry the wrong girl and you’ll get no wedding presents and be disinherited. Marry the right girl and you’ll get a paid for new car and a down payment on a house for a wedding present.

    If you’re happy with your Asian wife that’s great. But going on a conservative pro White website and bragging your wife and kids aren’t White is just assholism to the max. “I’m superior to the rest of you guys because my wife’s Asian. “. That’s all you can be proud of, your wife’s race?

    I admire the White men who stayed in America and survived affirmative action and vicious hatred far more than a White man who had to flee to Asia to survive. And I admire the blue eyed fair skinned men and women who marry and preserve our genes for another couple generations. Affirmative action job discrimination means we can’t marry and support White kids. Unless we go on welfare to have kids Whites just night disappear in the next 300 years.

    If all you have to brag about is your wife's race, that’s pretty pathetic.

    Zero use for the scummy traitor Biden. And Jill's "call me Doctor" bit is pathetic.

    But i do appreciate the fightin' Jill.

    Women have a natural nose for/attraction to status. The evolutionary purpose is for them to figure out who is the highest status "fittest" male they can land and mate with him. (A woman mating with a loser is ... bad.)

    In our disordered modern world, a lot of women are trying to pursue status for themselves, through their career (more more hilariously playing college football). Then they are confused when it doesn't result in men--the men they want--swooning over them.

    The deal is men just don't care about a woman's status. Basically they want sex with a reproductively fit woman. And in a wife, they further want pleasant company, good genes, signs she's be a good mother and good character--especially loyalty. Of course, what a woman is doing, may indicate some of those characteristics. (AnotherMom's academic work was certainly a signal of intelligence, drive, persistence and middle class values i valued.) But we really don't care about a woman's status, per se.

    Jill Biden' knows her status flows from her husband--whom she's invested her life in. She had a chance to be #1 wife in the status hierarchy. And she wasn't about to let some vegan freaks diminish or embarrass the man her status flows from. She'll get in there and put the whoop ass on 'em if necessary.

    That Odo look is really the product of Botox more than surgery. Look at John Kerry before and after. Relaxing those muscles in the forehead has the effect of stretching the eyebrows out horizontally and creating the Odo/Na’vi look. The paradoxical thing is that it never makes one look younger–just different. In older women I think it’s becoming a marker of wealth, since youth is really beyond their grasp.

    OT: Here in the home of the earliest and longest lockdowns, I’ve notice a kind of signaling amongst young fit teenage and youngish women that I remember from my youth–the exposed midriff. With so much that used to signal youth (in the face) forcibly covered, they’ve gone to the places not so encumbered and extremely difficult for the Helen Hunts of the world to fake.

(The Purdue nickname, Boilermakers, comes from its football team's alleged use of ringers, in the early years of its program's history.) That was the only time that I encountered such a measure, when taking such a test (P.S.A.T., S.A.T., G.R.E., G.R.E. subject test for Psychology, G.M.A.T., and L.S.A.T.). I took a practice S.A.T., on a lark, when it was offered at the local public library, nearly twenty years ago, which was nearly thirty years after I had taken the real thing.

I managed to make the 83rd percentile on the test even though my mind was mostly on the observations I needed to make, and I certainly had no plans to go in search of a Master's!

    A similar test-center mystery shop for some kind of IT certification actually required me to fail, and believe me I had no problem with that!

    When I took the L.S.A.T., at Purdue, six weeks after I took the G.M.A.T., they took our thumbprints, to detect, or at least to dissuade, ringers. (The Purdue nickname, Boilermakers, comes from its football team’s alleged use of ringers, in the early years of its program’s history.) That was the only time that I encountered such a measure, when taking such a test (P.S.A.T., S.A.T., G.R.E., G.R.E. subject test for Psychology, G.M.A.T., and L.S.A.T.). I took a practice S.A.T., on a lark, when it was offered at the local public library, nearly twenty years ago, which was nearly thirty years after I had taken the real thing. My main impression of that deja vu experience was that time really seems to pass much more quickly, in one’s forties, than it previously had seemed to do, in one’s teens. The tale of the telomeres, I would assume….

    Which is why Trump supporters are smarter than you. Smart enough to add two and two all day and always get four. Their lack of status and ... deplorableness eliminates snobbery and the view that someone is better than someone else because of a degree or the car in the driveway.

    They know they got the shaft -- their wages stay the same decade after decade while food and housing prices go up and up and up. Your class is so stupid they can't figure out they are just as disposable to the Tech Oligarchs as Joe Sixpack was decades ago.

    Some Hindu Dindu can replace you and yours easily and cheaply enough. For tech stuff, there is an army of H1-Bs and Chinese people to hire. They may not be very good but there ten times cheaper. Meanwhile even in Government Jobs Educated White people are toast. How can you not understand DIE DIE DIE (Diversity Inclusion Equity) as the message to Whitey. You yourself -- there is a black person and even better a black lesbian transgender who can do your job. And because black lesbian transgender, much much better. Just ask that Wise Latina. Indeed the future unless you stick with the proles is one where you are sitting under an overpass eating bugs all day. Quite literally. And that's the good outcome.

    Primate 101 -- Unless you stick with the males of your tribe, Alpha and Beta and Omega and everything else, the other males from the other tribe will kill you all and your male children and take your wives and daughters. That's it. That's how primates are. The ugly hick Trump voters understand that. But somehow you think your non-White co-workers and the like actually LIKE you and would risk their lives to save you somehow from the Rwanda purge that's coming. Its about as dumb as cutting off one's man parts and committing suicide to hitch a ride on a spaceship behind a comet. And I thought that was the dumbest thing I'd ever seen.

While grabbing every gun and forcing a lockdown that never ends and then no more meat, fish, chicken, eggs, milk etc. just bugs and sewer water for the Great Reset like that idiot Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum (a recipe for violent revolution if ever I saw one). Then as state after state rebels and starts a soft secession she's likely to call in ... the Chinese Military in desperation to touch off a Civil War 2.0 with nukes and foreign intervention and Magdeburg Quarter.

    Ivanka Trump wears a lot of makeup, as most American women do. Ivanka Trump dyes her dark hair blond, as many American women do. Ivanka Trump obviously has had a lot of high-quality elective cosmetic surgery, including to her nose, chin, and breasts, as no small number of American women have-- especially among her socio-economic class and socio-cultural peers. She looks much more attractive, now, at the late Jack Benny's perpetual age, than she did as a nubile teenager, two decades ago. Kudos for her! Raspberries, however, for any man clueless enough to think that she achieved her current level of attractiveness through maturity and healthy living, rather than through the laudable talents of cosmetic surgeons and licensed beauticians.

    The particular fixation of the "Doctor" title for Ph.D holder seems to be among boomers, just in my professional experience. Particularly among women.

    I'm working on my doctoral defense in China and my dissertation advisor, a early-40s white academic from Australia has never insisted on me referring to him as "Dr. X" in any professional or personal context. I guess you could say it's because we're members of a small pool of "like" people here in Zhongguo, but I think this is just because Gen Xers have a more adult view of the world than their parents' generation and are less obsessed with the particularities of status.

    When I do my consultation work for the American university, it is all extremely formalized, particularly when dealing with administration, who insist on the terminology. Unsurprisingly, they are all 60+ -- or at least look to be.

    I have two diplomas that I received previously: BS in Computer Science & MA in linguistics. My Ph.D will be in linguistics, but I won't insist on the title -- I've grown quite attached to my students calling me "(First Name) Laoshu", which is an endearment title that the Chinese use to refer to their teachers. It is when they don't use your first name that you know you're being dragged.

    The linguistics types were generally more fastidious about credential acknowledgement than the compsci types, but I think this is because many in my specific arena double-dipped into neuroscience and speech pathology as well.

    Either way, Ph.Ds are only earned by roughly 2% of the population. Credentialing in general isn't a sign of intelligence as much as it's a sign of you being able to meet expectations. The primary reason I distrust people without university diplomas is that it's clear that they don't value the same things I do. This explains more of the 2020 red/blue split than any of the race ideology stuff.

    But trust me: it is amazingly simple and powerful, a cheat code. And all it requires is your listening to their little rant for the key word slurs they hurl. You just listen, say it back, and keep repeating it—don’t just do it once, any slur they dropped is painful to them.

    SJW's have a female mentality. Women always reveal what they fear pretty easily; fear of abandonment is always high on the list. This is why angry women will hurl "You'll die alone!" at men, they are projecting their own fear.

    Think of SJW's as mid-high girls and their behavior is rather predictable.

    Thanks very much for that cheat code! It makes perfect sense. Because the SJW's always project, and thus they literally tell us what they fear.

    “I never remarked on Ivanka’s grooming.”

    What you previously wrote . . .

    “Not ugly, just poorly groomed. Taking advice from her mother, I’d guess, or trying to compete with Ivanka. Her weight fluctuates and has been in excess at times.”

    . . . could be interpreted as remarking upon Ivanka Trump’s own grooming, since you said that Tiffany Trump (a) was “poorly groomed,” and (b) might be “trying to compete with Ivanka.” Regardless . . .

    “I don’t think the photos you’re posting prove what you fancy they prove.”

    How many times do I have to quote you directly before you will concede your rank hypocrisy?

    “The ideal quantum of makeup on a woman’s face is nil. The ideal quantum of dye in her hair is also nil. The ideal number of tats on her body is also nil. The ideal quantum of time in a given month spent getting a perm is also nil. The ideal number of curlers and curling irons owned is also nil. The list of people on a given day who see your thighs or your bare shoulders is properly very short.”

    . . . and then, a few hours later, you added . . .

    “It should be avoided for any reason other than to remove moles, blemishes, scars, and congenital defects, and that can often be done by a dermatologist. Very few people not in a line of work where they are filmed or photographed regularly has plastic surgery for any other reason.”

    Ivanka Trump wears a lot of makeup, as most American women do. Ivanka Trump dyes her dark hair blond, as many American women do. Ivanka Trump obviously has had a lot of high-quality elective cosmetic surgery, including to her nose, chin, and breasts, as no small number of American women have– especially among her socio-economic class and socio-cultural peers. She looks much more attractive, now, at the late Jack Benny’s perpetual age, than she did as a nubile teenager, two decades ago. Kudos for her! Raspberries, however, for any man clueless enough to think that she achieved her current level of attractiveness through maturity and healthy living, rather than through the laudable talents of cosmetic surgeons and licensed beauticians.

    This is a tiresome discussion. Whether Ivanka looks handsome or not is a question distinct from that of how women should conduct themselves as a matter of course. And, of course, the question of whether Ivanka has or had not had plastic surgery is a question distinct from (1) Tiffany's grooming good or bad, (2) How women should conduct themselves generally, and (3) the degree to which Ivanka is attractive.

    My late mother was a mere high-school graduate (Gary Horace Mann), but she undoubtedly had an above-average IQ, and perhaps even a superior one (c. 120-130). My father had to drop out of school in the eighth grade, to go to work during the Great Depression. When he entered the Coast Guard, however, before we entered the war, his IQ was measured at 140. Having been raised in the working class, rather than in poverty like my parents, my IQ ended up marginally higher than his. I do not look down upon them for their lack of college education.

    Which is why Trump supporters are smarter than you. Smart enough to add two and two all day and always get four. Their lack of status and ... deplorableness eliminates snobbery and the view that someone is better than someone else because of a degree or the car in the driveway.

    They know they got the shaft -- their wages stay the same decade after decade while food and housing prices go up and up and up. Your class is so stupid they can't figure out they are just as disposable to the Tech Oligarchs as Joe Sixpack was decades ago.

    Some Hindu Dindu can replace you and yours easily and cheaply enough. For tech stuff, there is an army of H1-Bs and Chinese people to hire. They may not be very good but there ten times cheaper. Meanwhile even in Government Jobs Educated White people are toast. How can you not understand DIE DIE DIE (Diversity Inclusion Equity) as the message to Whitey. You yourself -- there is a black person and even better a black lesbian transgender who can do your job. And because black lesbian transgender, much much better. Just ask that Wise Latina. Indeed the future unless you stick with the proles is one where you are sitting under an overpass eating bugs all day. Quite literally. And that's the good outcome.

That's it. That's how primates are. The ugly hick Trump voters understand that. But somehow you think your non-White co-workers and the like actually LIKE you and would risk their lives to save you somehow from the Rwanda purge that's coming. Its about as dumb as cutting off one's man parts and committing suicide to hitch a ride on a spaceship behind a comet. And I thought that was the dumbest thing I'd ever seen.

While grabbing every gun and forcing a lockdown that never ends and then no more meat, fish, chicken, eggs, milk etc. just bugs and sewer water for the Great Reset like that idiot Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum (a recipe for violent revolution if ever I saw one). Then as state after state rebels and starts a soft secession she's likely to call in ... the Chinese Military in desperation to touch off a Civil War 2.0 with nukes and foreign intervention and Magdeburg Quarter.

    Titles create hierarchy. Therefore, they are useful within their realm of operation. A medical doctor is right to insist on being called "Doctor" by his patients and staff. Similarly, with academics and their peers or students. And for a President, by the residents of that nation.

    Further, it's often right and proper to refer to someone by their title as a sign of respect, even outside of that realm. But this is generally voluntary or situational.

    When titles are insisted upon outside of these, it's obnoxious. Primarily, because the titles are used to create a hierarchy where none should exist. And secondly, because the titles in common use are largely a historical artifact and have little relationship to merit.

    If you support enforced titles, you should refer to everyone by one fact of their choosing (their wealth, IQ, job title, award they've won, etc).

    The particular fixation of the "Doctor" title for Ph.D holder seems to be among boomers, just in my professional experience. Particularly among women.

    I'm working on my doctoral defense in China and my dissertation advisor, a early-40s white academic from Australia has never insisted on me referring to him as "Dr. X" in any professional or personal context. I guess you could say it's because we're members of a small pool of "like" people here in Zhongguo, but I think this is just because Gen Xers have a more adult view of the world than their parents' generation and are less obsessed with the particularities of status.

    When I do my consultation work for the American university, it is all extremely formalized, particularly when dealing with administration, who insist on the terminology. Unsurprisingly, they are all 60+ -- or at least look to be.

    I have two diplomas that I received previously: BS in Computer Science & MA in linguistics. My Ph.D will be in linguistics, but I won't insist on the title -- I've grown quite attached to my students calling me "(First Name) Laoshu", which is an endearment title that the Chinese use to refer to their teachers. It is when they don't use your first name that you know you're being dragged.

    The linguistics types were generally more fastidious about credential acknowledgement than the compsci types, but I think this is because many in my specific arena double-dipped into neuroscience and speech pathology as well.

    Either way, Ph.Ds are only earned by roughly 2% of the population. Credentialing in general isn't a sign of intelligence as much as it's a sign of you being able to meet expectations. The primary reason I distrust people without university diplomas is that it's clear that they don't value the same things I do. This explains more of the 2020 red/blue split than any of the race ideology stuff.

    White educated voters left the party that was becoming the party of white non-educateds.

    "I never remarked on Ivanka’s grooming."

    What you previously wrote . . .

    "Not ugly, just poorly groomed. Taking advice from her mother, I’d guess, or trying to compete with Ivanka. Her weight fluctuates and has been in excess at times."

    . . . could be interpreted as remarking upon Ivanka Trump's own grooming, since you said that Tiffany Trump (a) was "poorly groomed," and (b) might be "trying to compete with Ivanka." Regardless . . .

    "I don’t think the photos you’re posting prove what you fancy they prove."

    How many times do I have to quote you directly before you will concede your rank hypocrisy?

    "The ideal quantum of makeup on a woman’s face is nil. The ideal quantum of dye in her hair is also nil. The ideal number of tats on her body is also nil. The ideal quantum of time in a given month spent getting a perm is also nil. The ideal number of curlers and curling irons owned is also nil. The list of people on a given day who see your thighs or your bare shoulders is properly very short."

    . . . and then, a few hours later, you added . . .

    "It should be avoided for any reason other than to remove moles, blemishes, scars, and congenital defects, and that can often be done by a dermatologist. Very few people not in a line of work where they are filmed or photographed regularly has plastic surgery for any other reason."

    Ivanka Trump wears a lot of makeup, as most American women do. Ivanka Trump dyes her dark hair blond, as many American women do. Ivanka Trump obviously has had a lot of high-quality elective cosmetic surgery, including to her nose, chin, and breasts, as no small number of American women have-- especially among her socio-economic class and socio-cultural peers. She looks much more attractive, now, at the late Jack Benny's perpetual age, than she did as a nubile teenager, two decades ago. Kudos for her! Raspberries, however, for any man clueless enough to think that she achieved her current level of attractiveness through maturity and healthy living, rather than through the laudable talents of cosmetic surgeons and licensed beauticians.

    The Superintendent of Falls Church SD (that’s the one dropping TJ’s name from one of its schools), Dr. Noonan, makes $225K/yr. Great SJW.

    Dr. Jackson, Chicago, makes $260K.
    Carranza, NYC, is completing his doctorate. $345K. They’re not the highest paid superintendents in their (dis-)respective states, by the way.

    The Superintendent of Public Instruction was traditionally an elected official, but now only ten states continue to do so. In such states, the officeholder’s main credential is an endorsement from the teachers union. The appointed ones are simply political cronies.

    California’s SPI is elected. He’s a totally empty suit and a career tax leech (including terms in the state assembly).

    The Illinois SPI is an appointee. The current one has a PhD in Education Leadership & Policy Studies. The recently-departed head of the notoriously dreadful, DC schools is a Harvard lawyer.

    Which is why Trump supporters are smarter than you. Smart enough to add two and two all day and always get four. Their lack of status and ... deplorableness eliminates snobbery and the view that someone is better than someone else because of a degree or the car in the driveway.

    They know they got the shaft -- their wages stay the same decade after decade while food and housing prices go up and up and up. Your class is so stupid they can't figure out they are just as disposable to the Tech Oligarchs as Joe Sixpack was decades ago.

    Some Hindu Dindu can replace you and yours easily and cheaply enough. For tech stuff, there is an army of H1-Bs and Chinese people to hire. They may not be very good but there ten times cheaper. Meanwhile even in Government Jobs Educated White people are toast. How can you not understand DIE DIE DIE (Diversity Inclusion Equity) as the message to Whitey. You yourself -- there is a black person and even better a black lesbian transgender who can do your job. And because black lesbian transgender, much much better. Just ask that Wise Latina. Indeed the future unless you stick with the proles is one where you are sitting under an overpass eating bugs all day. Quite literally. And that's the good outcome.

    Primate 101 -- Unless you stick with the males of your tribe, Alpha and Beta and Omega and everything else, the other males from the other tribe will kill you all and your male children and take your wives and daughters. That's it. That's how primates are. The ugly hick Trump voters understand that. But somehow you think your non-White co-workers and the like actually LIKE you and would risk their lives to save you somehow from the Rwanda purge that's coming. Its about as dumb as cutting off one's man parts and committing suicide to hitch a ride on a spaceship behind a comet. And I thought that was the dumbest thing I'd ever seen.

    As for Dr. Jill -- she's a disaster. Stupid, arrogant, sheltered, vengeful, I'm getting a Marie Antoinette vibe off her already. She's stupid enough to push Biden ahead in Defund the Police (in a leaked call he said he would but don't like Fight Club talk about it). While grabbing every gun and forcing a lockdown that never ends and then no more meat, fish, chicken, eggs, milk etc. just bugs and sewer water for the Great Reset like that idiot Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum (a recipe for violent revolution if ever I saw one). Then as state after state rebels and starts a soft secession she's likely to call in ... the Chinese Military in desperation to touch off a Civil War 2.0 with nukes and foreign intervention and Magdeburg Quarter.

    I don’t care about Whites having relationships and kids with non Whites. I married White and got the Botticelli girls I wanted. That was my choice . But every conservative or pro White website has race traitor White men bragging that they are better than other White men because they have Asian wives and gala kids. And that Asian women are superior to White women.

    Asian women want the height and fairness for their kids. . And green cards for their entire clans. S California is full of brunette Whites. But I never ever see an Asian women with a Persian Armenian Arab Indian looking man. It’s always a fair skinned brown hair N European looking man. Even on college campuses where N European White men are scarce. Shortness is disgraceful in Asia. Means generations of malnutrition caused by poverty. Dark skin means coolie farm workers, lowest of the low.

    Another thing White men with Asian wives don’t realize is that daughter’s are not worth much in Asian culture. So they might as well marry out.
    “ Getting rid of a daughter in marriage is like throwing away the dirty dishwater”. Old Chinese saying. “ Feeding the girls is a a waste of food” is another.

    Sons are treasures. There is great great pressure in Asian sons to marry the right woman from the right country and ethnicity, home province , town, same general occupation, etc. Asian sons are told outright marry the wrong girl and you’ll get no wedding presents and be disinherited. Marry the right girl and you’ll get a paid for new car and a down payment on a house for a wedding present.

    If you’re happy with your Asian wife that’s great. But going on a conservative pro White website and bragging your wife and kids aren’t White is just assholism to the max. “I’m superior to the rest of you guys because my wife’s Asian. “. That’s all you can be proud of, your wife’s race?

    I admire the White men who stayed in America and survived affirmative action and vicious hatred far more than a White man who had to flee to Asia to survive. And I admire the blue eyed fair skinned men and women who marry and preserve our genes for another couple generations. Affirmative action job discrimination means we can’t marry and support White kids. Unless we go on welfare to have kids Whites just night disappear in the next 300 years.

    If all you have to brag about is your wife’s race, that’s pretty pathetic.
