I'm noticing a bit of a swing irt views on nail grooming. I knew members of the greatest generation, including the stereotypical 'manly men,' who seemed to value life without gross, infection-prone digits. Then later on, for some reason, even hand lotion became too girly. Now I'm sitting here reading your concern about boys with longish, buffed nails. Boy with ADHD and autism has enough on his plate without his decrepit millennial teacher taking notes about his "effeminate" manicure. Cautious social commentary from the man with a porking closet in his workplace where he preys upon underlings.

e: There's a lot of writing criticizing the utilization of IQ scores. Ones like this google-fu'd: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2 … 133334.htm

How many people were discounted and discarded because they couldn't solve some giganerd's test riddle or trick question with triangles or whatever.

Imagine if IQ were based on rifle recognition, and you didn't get some completely unrelated job because you were unable to distinguish between two 'AR clones.'

Ah, we've finally drawn out full context. I would say a doctor's/therapist's note would suffice for qualifying a restroom switch, then. That stuff should be easily enough handled by the school nurse and administration, right? If it causes problems and "gay panic" or whatever for other students, offer the kid the use of one of the staff restrooms.
How is girls not wanting a boy in the girl's restroom 'gay panic'? Its completely normal to feel uncomfortable about it.

That's a bit sticky though, isn't it. People with a history of whining about trannies on the shitter will always reduce down to the 'men sneaking peeks' argument against it.

I don't think the girls are unjustified to feel uncomfortable at that stage. The boy needs to talk to a counsellor, and maybe go to therapy.

And not go in the girls restroom.

The nails don't bother me. I am worried because he is mute and his autism clearly affects his social life.

You can be really melodramatic. I think you are jealous that I work around women and you work at a gay steel mill.

I am tired of this. I talk about how nice I am to the trans kids and you spin it as me being judgemental. I stand up for the working man against royal tyranny and Uzique racially abuses. (Something Dilbert has never done.)

I am leaving forever. Good bye

I'm not spinning anything. I even gave you a pat on the back for being nice to the trans kid.

My commentary is in that it's sad that doing so is exceptional enough to be worth comment, and also that it's funny you think a kid politely asking for something like that, in private, is them being "pushy," I mean my goodness.

National Review article complaining about how offensive a New Yorker cover is. I couldn't read the article because of pay wall. Here is the offensive cover.

Why is the flag attached to the door frame like that?

NR article starts out bad, smug, misses point, didn't get more than a paragraph in. Too early for hate-reads, always too early to bother with that rag.

I am more bothered by the blackboards. Schools no longer use blackboards. Everything is whiteboard like colleges now.


No dust. No making small kids fill up buckets of water to wash your board.

it’s a cartoon, not an interior by vermeer. i don’t think verisimilitude is the point.

Definitely not the point. It's just that with the lines the way they are here, even without the nightmare scenario the eye is drawn to the door where that flag exists outside of realspace. I think it's even pointed toward the center of the room.

Another aside, every student desk I had in gradeschool had one of those plastic drawers to hold my stuff, or at least a rack somewhere underneath. Are those not a thing anymore? I would've felt cheated if presented with one of these. Maybe we can start making those drawers with kevlar lining so the kids can empty their contents and use them as little Captain America shields in a pinch.

They have all sorts of chair and desk combos. There is no standardization even in the same building. They probably buy whatever they can from the authorized vendors.

For at least 15 years now, it's been ridiculous that "shut off the lights and hide" is the go-to plan for school shootings. As many have pointed out, every child who has attended school since then knows the drill. Maybe if we were worried in 2001 about an adult Taliban guy coming in, it'd throw him off, but as school shooters are overwhelmingly students, no one's being fooled.
