Facepalm. Ce mec est “humoriste”.
(Le tweet date de juin dernier mais n’a pas été effacé.)
Quel connard ce norman. J’ai bien fait d’arreter de regarder ses vidéos!
Comme tous les péteux de son acabit, il s’imagine que l’humour évolue dans une stratosphère éloignée des codes sociaux et que de toute façon, les sexistes, c’est les arabes, là-bas, qui forcent les femmes à porter le voile, c’est certainement pas lui. De toute façon, dans moins de cinq ans, on entendra plus parler de lui, et ce sera tant mieux. J’ai hâte qu’il tombe dans un oubli aussi rapide que mérité.
This is my son, Chester, who is nearly 4. He was invited to his friend Chloe’s birthday party today, the theme was prince and princesses. He asked if he could go as Sleeping Beauty, so I bought him a dress and put a cute little clip in his hair.
We arrived at the party to the following comments from the adults present:
“Oh that is just cruel.”
"Why did you make him wear a dress?"
"Poor little man, what’s your mummy playing at?"
"He’s going to hate you when he grows up."
"No way I’d let my son dress like a girl."
The fact is, Chester is almost completely gender neutral. I let him wear what he wants, be it boys or girls clothes, and he plays with whatever toys he likes. This usually involves him holding tea parties while wearing his pink Minnie Mouse top, jeans and a tiara. The guests are more often than not a mixture of Winnie The Pooh characters, dinosaurs, Barbie, Dora and solders, and they’re usually transported in his favorite fire engine.
When my husband arrived at the party later on, he was subjected to endless ridicule from the other dad’s present about how I must keep his balls in my back pocket because otherwise he would have put his foot down and not allowed Chester out like that. Oh, and by the way, our other son dressed as Ariel. When my husband pointed out that the boys were happy, and the mother of the birthday child made a point of saying how wonderful she thought it was that we allowed them freedom of choice and expression, they then stopped talking about it to our faces and started muttering about us behind our backs.
Interestingly enough, not a single child said a word about their choice of costumes, other than to compliment Chester on his new dress.
[Translation : “I’m not racist but Miss France competition should be only for white women, it seems logical actually” “In terms of beauty, sorry but blacks don’t come close to whites.” “Blacks all look the same, it’s disturbing”]
I guess it was predictable.
Yesterday, Flora Coquerel won the Miss France competition. And now, racist comments. DUMB racist comments.
First, the second most-researched terms when you type her name is “origins” : well, her family is Guadelupiean. So pretty French. And even if her parents were from foreign countries, who cares ?
And now, tweets about how blacks should be banished from the competition… Are you serious ? I hate people, sometimes.
Sinon, en France, tout va bien, le racisme n’existe plus.
The dark forest is strictly forbidden to all students
Except for detention
Where you will be forced to wander around when it's darkest and scariest
Doesn't that make so much sense
I'm so good at rules
