Hey guys M&m_Fan99 (Thaddeus Peuterschmidt) back with another IB Survival forum post! So, today's QOTD (question of the day) is: "Is my school's uniform policy sexist?", if you couldn't tell from the title of this forum post. In the uniform policy, it is stated that girls are not allowed to have their skirts more than 10cm above their knees, but there are no rules about how high boys can wear their shorts. Many are outraged at this and is calling this inequality. So IB Survival forum viewers, what do you think? Do you think my school is being sexist? :ivan:
Probably the most ironic thing to have happened to me was getting redpilled (referring to the new right or the alt-right) while attending the IB, mostly because it's against most of what the IB stands for. Being skeptical of globalism, political correctness, multi-culturalism and simply being nationalistic is something that would nearly destroy the purpose of the IB. Just a note, you will not understand any of this if you didn't follow politics in 2016 on at least a moderate level. My question is, how many of you in the IB share a similar story? Perhaps nobody on this Forum? That's still fine, but if there is someone, just so they know they're not the only ones. It's been the first time in forever that young people have primarily occupied right wing politics, and moreover care about their own countries, people, and culture. From this point on, we're going to play a bigger role in politics, especially since most of our concerns are being tackled right now. Marine Le Pen, Trump, and many other politicians, while only populist, are essentially fighting a similar battle. If anyone wants to have a discussion about immigration, racial relations, identity politics, racialism, gender, and much more, I am open to discussion. The new right and the reactosphere is not just another dumb, bigoted movement. It's a movement that uses facts and therefore attracts more intellectual-minded individuals. I am not saying I'm an intellectual by any means, but I have seen the movement catching these minds. We see and realize that there is no competition for ideas in our culture, education or politics when it comes to very crucial moral issues, and therefore we react and fight against that. Post-modernism is a big problem as well. However, just writing something as short as this is impossible to be able to describe everything, so it's more meant for those who identify with the new right. A clip from Jordan Peterson, a professor of Psychology at the University of Toronto talking about post-modernism: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkmXwByGmjc
