The Week in Woke: Unhealthy Woke Mask Mandate Edition

Boldly resisting the culture of wokeness

It’s time for another of our weekly looks at the world of “woke” — the all-purpose insult that’s the right-wing’s new version of so-called political correctness. Right-wing ideologues (and Bill Maher) are still railing about the allegedly “woke Olympics” and the evils of “woke capitalism.” But there are a few other examples that caught my eye this week.

Disneyland

The headline of the week comes from Fox station KTVU:

Medical Fascism Update: Disneyland to Abuse Customers With Unhealthy Woke Mask Mandate Regardless of “Vaccination” Status

(They seem to have changed the headline and toned down the rhetoric a little. But this was the original neadline.)

You may find yourself wondering what exactly is this new “unhealthy woke mask mandate” that Disney is forcing on parkgoers? Uh, Disney wants everyone to wear masks indoors, which is exactly like fascism except in every possible way.

The Deep State

Perpetually wrong political pundit Candace Owens is convinced the “woke” Deep State is out to get her and her buddies on the hard right. And she’s not kidding. Well, she was at first, but she got better.

At first, the very notion of a woke “deep state” seemed funny.

Still does.

But this is really no laughing matter. The deep state’s commitment to “wokeness” is spilling over from how it staffs its ranks to how it does its job, and — make no mistake — if you’re not among those who think correctly, you could find yourself in their crosshairs. …

According to recent reports, suspicion of woke movements like Black Lives Matter is evidence that you might be a problem, and if you’re a problem, you can be rooted out and replaced — by the woke. …

That is what being woke actually means. It’s a radical approach to thinking, morality, ethics, even basic biology. Everything can be suspended because the woke believe in a greater idea, like men can be women and we need people transitioning while in the military. …

Wait, you think the military is being destroyed from the inside by … trans women?

This is a recipe for disaster, a recipe for atrocity. It’s setting the stage for the kind of society where horrible atrocities against humanity can take place.

Well okey dokey then.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

According to an ANALYSIS/OPINION piece by Peter Parisi in the Washington Times, the beloved Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue has now been perhaps irrevocably broken.

“In a nutshell,” he wrote,

the 2021 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, released last week, is what you might expect if Mother Jones magazine produced one.

Why is he so angry at the swimsuit issue’s “woke makeover?” Because M.J. Day, the woman in charge of the swimsuit issue since 2014, has a somewhat larger conception of female beauty than he does. Over the past eight years, you see, Day has been adding … plus size models! Women with tattoos! And even a couple of trans women!

Parisi seems to be especially bothered by the latter.

[T]his year, as if to flash a big middle finger at the swimsuit issue’s primarily (straight) male readership, the 2021 edition not only brought [trans model Valentina Sampaio] back but also another transgender “woman,” Leyna Bloom. Day put “her” on one of the three different available covers. …

Ms. Bloom is by far the least attractive—let’s just say it: The homeliest—cover “girl” in the 57-year history of the annual SI swimsuit issue.

For what it’s worth, Bloom looks …. fine. There’s nothing “homely” about her. And maybe that’s the real problem for Parisi; you can practically smell his homosexual panic from here.

Actually, that’s just my cat’s litterbox, never mind.

@VP : I could understand people calling “medical fascism” something like willingfully inject diseases like Syphilis to people that come to be treated, so to have long term studies group without their consents.

Of course, that would more likely happen to poor, shunned minorities than to what is still the most numerous and more importantly richer ethnic group in the USA.

@gijoel: That’s the best photo he could come up with? Sure, he’s no model to begin with, but a little styling and Photoshop would have helped him look less like, I dunno, a dweeby troll. But considering his thing seems to be trolling, I guess that’s appropriate.

Ms. Bloom should be proud of not appealing to this loser. And I too would love to be as “homely” as she is, particularly in a swimsuit.

First of all, I wish I had ever been half so beautiful as Leyna. Secondly, am I the only one who wonders if part of the manosphere anger at the SI swimsuit covers is an unspoken resentment that they’re all black women? The manosphere also trends racist, no?

Yes, just about every specialty has something shameful in their history, ranging from at best ignorance in how the human body REALLY works to cruelty to patients who are seen/treated as subhuman. Generations from now will undoubtedly look back on us and point out things we are currently blind to. I’m okay with that – it’s far preferable to the alternative of chants and prayers coming back into fashion.

Wow. Thanks for that. I just want you to know you are a horrible person and I am going to suffer for the rest of my life from thinking about those choices. ;D

Indeed. I remain convinced that one of the world’s biggest problems is that the people who should be confident, aren’t, and the ones who shouldn’t be, are. As a mediocre white trans man, I wish I had just half the confidence that these mediocre white cis men and women have.

I see all those woke lesbians on the US Women’s Soccer team were defeated by those traditionally feminine ladies from…Canada. Who will now face the girly girls of Australia or Sweden.

I went and right-click-googled “grandboss” and… don’t do that at work. And I’m gonna assume what you meant was CEO ? 😀

I hope the job-hunting and pandemic-dodging go well for you. If not, I might be able to find you someone who could make you a good spear, I heard those help a lot.

And I’ve been, uh, in a weird place ? A good one though, and I’m trying to ride that and make some change happen, and so far it’s been working out in all the strangest ways and it feels nice.

… I just woke up, read that, and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to sleep again.

Haha I don’t want to know what those results were. It’s what Ask A Manager uses for your boss’s boss. (Like how grandfather is your parent’s father).

I hope things work out for the best for you!

Dammit. Another clinic needing to reschedule things because they are getting overwhelmed by COVID.

I hate this. I hate this. I hate this. Fucking Delta variant STILL not being taken seriously by idjits who think “99% survival rate” means that patients will just bounce back to normal after the virus has run its course. Fucking fuckheads.

(Now wondering how many of the regulars are thinking, “Whoa, Vicky P is dropping f-bombs.”)

Rapinoe now has her bronze. Right wingers, feel free to melt down now. (The only team to defeat hers seems to have been ours, guaranteeing Canada at least a silver in the same event. And that’d be our women again, though we do have some male medalists now, including golds in the men’s decathlon and men’s 200m dash I believe.)

@Dana C.

Okay, worst round of Marry, Fuck, Kill *EVER*

Nah, there’s a simple enough solution: Arbitrarily decide which of the three to marry, fuck, and kill — it isn’t going to matter. Then as your response state that you’d marry the “marry” one before getting them all to the same secluded area at the same time — this is certainly plausible, to judge by the “Four Seasons” debacle — and choosing a bomb as your method of choice for killing the “kill” one. The other two would therefore get caught in the blast radius, “’til death do us part” would end the short-lived marriage, and things could be finished by skullfucking the third one. End by noting that this way there would be three fewer fascists in the world. 🙂
