Tuesday links

  • Before Uber put on the street a car that couldn’t brake in an emergency, the unit responsible, you will not be surprised to learn, was highly dysfunctional.
  • Turns out it’s actually possible to ask stupid questions. Bear Bussjaeger says the mayor of Toledo, OH, has succeeded.
  • LOL! It had to happen. The Vagina Monologues — so edgy just a few years ago — won’t be playing at Eastern Michigan University. Because all those new women-with-penises would be offended. (H/T MtK)
  • Are you an attorney in Washington state who cares about constitutional issues? David Kopel is looking for local representation regarding a case before the supreme court. Sounds like a volunteer project with expenses paid, but also sounds simple.
  • Things are heating up as the migrant marchers pile against the bottom of the U.S. One Tijuana border crossing was closed today due to threats of some sort. I’ve heard other details from a friend in the city, and I’ll post them if he gives permission.
  • If you’re a Latino shouting, “Mexico first!” at Hondurans in Tijuana … are you a racist?
  • Under pressure, Airbnb is now boycotting Jewish homes in the West Bank.
  • From M in comments: When I didn’t have a heartwarming story to end yesterday’s links, she supplied one that combines human goodness with new tech.

    “We feel that making this decision is in line with the WRC mission of recognizing and celebrating the diverse representations of women on campus along with the overall mission of the Department of Diversity and Community Involvement, in which the WRC is housed, of supporting and empowering minoritized students and challenging systems and structures that perpetuate inequities,” the statement read. “We truly believe that it is important to center our minoritized students and this decision is in line with this mission driven value.”

    If I didn’t know better, I’d swear this excuse for canceling “The Vagina Monologues” was being facetious. As it is, it’s merely CYA PC-cowardice.

    And when did “minoritized” become a word? I must have missed that.

    I was listening to Rush Limbaugh today and he brought up “The Vagina Monologues” story on his radio program today.

    It’s always amusing when a mayor thinks withholding firearm orders for Toledo’s 566 police officers will impress firearm manufacturers more than the market of 17,000 or so people in the city who are licensed to carry.

    Intersectionality bites! The internal contradictions within the SJW mindset will inevitably lead to brutal intersectional conflict and possibly self-destruction. It can’t happen too soon.
