The left gets sillier by the day. strike that. how about by the hour? No? the minute then. ok

Tells ya where the culture has gone in these modern enlightened times.
Backwards?
Not even that.  I think some ppl, generally of the left and especially the ultra left femi-nazis, have found a whole new level to drop into.

This comes from France and so perhaps it won’t surprise anyone.  They are a bit screwed up these days but then hey .... they are not the only ones.
So I’m not just picking on the French to be mean spirited, it’s just that the story originates there. Oh boy.

Imagine a $1600 fine for this bit of insanity.  I can not imagine any woman of a conservative mindset would dream of something like this.

War of le words: French MP fined for using sexist GRAMMAR after calling female colleague ‘Madame le President’

Julian Aubert was technically correct, because ‘president’ is a male word

He pointed out ‘Madame la President’ would mean the president’s wife

National Assembly president Sandrine Mazetier was nonetheless offended

She officially reprimanded the MP and fined him the equivalent of £1,000 ($1600)

By Peter Allen

A French MP has been reprimanded and fined for using allegedly sexist grammar in the Paris parliament.

In a bizarre case which will be of particular interest to British people who have struggled over ‘le’ and ‘la’ during torturous French lessons, Julien Aubert called a senior colleague ‘Madame le President’.

‘Madame le President’ is technically correct, because all nouns in France have a sex, and ‘president’ is a male word.

But Sandrine Mazetier, the Socialist president in the National Assemby, objected to the term, saying she was clearly a woman and should be ‘Madame La Presidente’, with an ‘e’ on the end.

During a parliamentary session on Monday, Ms Mazetier said: ‘Mr Aubert I’m calling you to order. It’s “Madame la Presidente”. It’s a call to order without a fine, but next time...’

But Mr Aubert, of the conservative UMP, refused to comply, pointing out that according to l’Academie Francaise, France’s language police, ‘Madame la Presidente’ would refer to the president’s wife.

This prompted Ms Mezetier to issue a formal fine equivalent to just over £1,000, and he was officially reprimanded.

Left wingers supported the move, with Green Party MP Cecile Duflot insisting: ‘This isn’t trivial. Many respectful UMP members don’t do this kind of thing.’

Caroline de Haas, a high profile feminist politician, tweeted: ‘A woman at the head of National Assembly seems to bother the UMP. It’s true, it’s only 2014 after all.’

But Eric Ciotti, another member of the UMP, said it was ‘a grotesque and ridiculous sanction’ against Mr Aubert, adding the ‘Socialists bring back the thought police’.

Pierre Morel, also a UMP MP, said: ‘The sanction against Julian Aubert is dumb, Sandrine Mezetier is abusing her powers.’

Sometimes there is a certain Freudian logic. For example, “plug” (der Steck) in German is male and plughole (die Steckdose) is female. Wait till the feminist lobby starts moaning about that!

president is male,, presidente is feminine (not female).

  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
