What jumps out at me is how utterly SUPERIOR this ritual must make these upper-class white women feel. But hasn't this always been the ugly underbelly of progressive wakeness?
I think you mean "wokeness", which also isn't a word.
But yes: the whole point is to feel superior while abasing yourself.
It's a mental illness.

Liberal white women are spending thousands of dollars to be lectured about how racist they are.
"Race to dinner", organized by Saira Rao.
This is Race to Dinner. A white woman volunteers to host a dinner in her home for seven other white women – often strangers, perhaps acquaintances. (Each dinner costs $2,500, which can be covered by a generous host or divided among guests.) A frank discussion is led by co-founders Regina Jackson, who is black, and Saira Rao, who identifies as Indian American. They started Race to Dinner to challenge liberal white women to accept their racism, however subconscious. “If you did this in a conference room, they’d leave,” Rao says. “But wealthy white women have been taught never to leave the dinner table.”

This is just the current version of the flagellants of the middle ages, and makes just as much sense.
That's so funny that you said that! I had said to my wife, "Why don't they just whip themselves?" O0
I respect the flagellation more,as I think that was done privately. Whether it was or not, it would have to be today for reasons of hygiene.
Nope: "The followers were noted for including public flagellation in their rituals."

Rammstein knew the deep desires of the wecken years ago.
I hated all the things I had toiled for under the sun, because I must leave them to the one who comes after me. Who knows whether that person will be wise or foolish? Yet they will have control over all the fruit of my toil into which I have poured my effort and skill under the sun. . . Nothing is better for a man than to eat and drink and enjoy his work.

My own interest in Woody Allen is approximately zero. I used to find him funny, but the prospect of wading through “a comprehensive account of his life,” as Hachette put it, fills me with gloom. Hachette had nonetheless determined that many readers would be interested in Mr. Allen’s life story. They simply forgot to check with the feminist commissars to see if he passes muster in the age of #MeToo.

Spoil alert: he didn’t pass muster. O0

Transgenders Being Denied Lifesaving Surgery

Post by Maddy » Sun Mar 22, 2020 2:30 pm

In today's headlines: "Transgenders Being Denied Lifesaving Surgery"

Yes, you guessed it: All those white, racist, homophobic people on ventilators are preventing transgenders from getting their genitalia altered.

They really need to grow a pai- oop, inappropriate phrase here.

Yes, just one more example of coveting - make 'em bigger, make 'em smaller, cut 'em off. It IS all about ME, you know! ME, ME, ME ..... What I want, when I want it, to hell with what YOU need, and to hell with the gifts I was given before my birth. :'( >:D
Its OK if some people don’t like you, not everyone has good taste.

Hilarious! The self-centeredness of that attitude is breathtaking.

How about this for the ultimate expression of the title of this thread:

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congre ... s-n1166021

The Democrats just can't help themselves. They HAVE to sabotage anything Republican-initiated, even if it means destroying the country's economy apparently.

I do not know the detail of the bill, but they are all adding more debt than at anytime in the history of the country, if it takes an extra day, so be it.

Whether warranted or not, if this is grandstanding it would suck, but this better damn well be biased toward working people and not propping up industries that blew their money on stock buybacks, or, for example, the cruise industry, which seems to almost 100% of the time have ships registered out of country so as to not pay US taxes and hire workers outside of US wage and working conditions laws. They should suffer the consequences.
