Rhodes Would Weep By James Reed

     This relates to the US, but it seems that in that context, the Rhodes Scholarship,  is now dominated by Leftist students, surprise, surprise:
  https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2019/11/29/60-of-2020-rhodes-scholarships-awarded-to-leftist-activists/

“The next slate of Rhodes Scholars is overwhelmingly involved with various forms of progressive activism in the United States. Almost 60 percent specifically mention their leftist activism in their biographies. According to a report by The College Fix, the majority of Rhodes Scholars for 2020 are progressives. The report revealed that only 13 of the 32 Rhodes Scholars have biographies that do not mention progressive activism. That means that almost 60 percent of recipients are expressly involved with progressive activism. Elliot F. Gerson, American Secretary of the Rhodes Trust, said that the 2020 Rhodes Scholars represent the “extraordinary diversity that characterizes and strengthens the United States. “This year’s American Rhodes Scholars — independently elected by 16 committees around the country meeting simultaneously — once again reflect the extraordinary diversity that characterizes and strengthens the United States,” Gerson said. “They will go to Oxford in September 2020 to study in fields broadly across the social, biological and physical sciences, and in the humanities. They are leaders already, and we expect their impact to expand exponentially over the course of their public-spirited careers.” Take, for example, University of Oklahoma student Leanne K.M Ho, whose biography notes that she is a passionate activist for LGBT rights. The biography also notes that Ho is a “non-binary” person. Leanne’s academic research focuses on the impact of storytelling on social distancing from LGBTQ people. They are a campus leader in incorporating transgender, intersex, and non-binary people into conversations about reproductive health and have advocated for increased resources and opportunities for transgender and gender non-conforming students. Leanne led a successful effort to address gendered campus awards at the University of Oklahoma, and was recently named the first-ever Big Non-Binary Person on Campus.”

Just Wow … Westpac By Peter Ewer

     What more can be said. Have you read about it? Here is one headline, that simply demands your attention: “Do as I say not as we do: How fallen Westpac boss Brian Hartzer ran a feel-good campaign to end slavery - as the bank ignored paedophiles sending cash to the Third World to exploit kids for sex.”
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7725843/Westpacs-lavish-human-trafficking-lunch-exposed-CEO-Brian-Hartzer-resigns.html?ico=pushly-notifcation-small

“Westpac revelled in a high-powered luncheon about ending slavery, and for years issued feel-good position papers signed by the CEO about its 'zero tolerance' approach to human trafficking. But these lofty social gestures have been slammed as 'vacuous virtue signalling' amid allegations the bank long allowed its services to be used for child trafficking and exploitation - with the backlash forcing CEO Brian Hartzer to fall on his sword on Tuesday. As heads rolled over the growing bank scandal, Daily Mail Australia can reveal the company hosted a lavish business lunch titled 'The Truth About Human Trafficking' in October 2016. Global expert Christine Dolan flew in to the bank's Sydney headquarters to speak to an audience of about 100 guests, including author Tara Moss and Liberal party powerbroker Michael Photios. Executives should have been listening a little closer - with financial watchdog Austrac three years later accusing the company of breaching anti-money laundering laws 23 million times. Among the alleged breaches are claims the company failed to monitor a dozen customers who have made transactions 'consistent with child exploitation typologies'. The watchdog claims that includes a customer who made payments to a person in the Philippines, and was later arrested for child sex trafficking and livestreaming child abuse. In court documents, the watchdog claims more than 3,000 payments went undetected by the bank for years, even though six customers repeatedly travelled to child sex hotspots in the region. Home Affairs minister Peter Dutton has told Parliament the company must pay the price for giving a 'free pass to paedophiles'. Meanwhile, leaked quotes from Mr Hartzer at an executive meeting that 'this is not Enron' led the CEO to resign on Tuesday morning. The revelations have left guests at Westpac's 2016 talk reeling - one said: 'I walked out of that talk feeling inspired, now I feel a bit dirty'. Every year since the lavish lunch, the company has produced an annual 'Slavery and Human Trafficking' statement, claiming it has a 'zero tolerance' approach and speaking about its 'commitment' to human rights. Each was signed by Mr Hartzer.”

More on the Swedish War Zone By Richard Miller

     Need to do a quickie article on the horrors of the modern West? Do not have time for research, it simply has to meet the deadline? Well, Sweden comes ever to the rescue, with no end to degeneracy and cultural decline:
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/11/13/bbc-wakes-up-sweden-bombing-epidemic-years-after-breitbart/
  https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-50339977

“The publicly-funded British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has woken up to Sweden’s bombing epidemic years after Breitbart News. In an analysis article titled ‘Sweden’s 100 explosions this year: What’s going on?’, the BBC acknowledged the epidemic of gang crime, gun crime, and criminal use of explosives which Breitbart London has been reporting for years — while the mainstream media scoffed and continued to hail the country as a Scandinavial left-liberal paradise. “Swedish police are dealing with unprecedented levels of attacks, targeting city centre locations [as well as heavily migrant-populated suburbs],” the so-called public interest broadcaster conceded. “This category of crime was not even logged prior to 2017. Then, in 2018, there were 162 explosions and in the past two months alone the bomb squad have been called to almost 30,” they reported. The report managed to avoid directly citing the immigration connection for over twenty paragraphs, however, and then only addressed the issue obliquely, observing that  “Swedish police do not record or release the ethnicity of suspects or convicted criminals, but intelligence chief Linda H Straaf says many do share a similar profile.”

Silence of the Lambs By Mrs Vera West

     The sexual abuse of defeated peoples in a war, such as the Soviet mass rape of German women post WWII, is common. Defeated people become the protein spoils of war, that the dogs of war abuse and eat, sometimes, literally. But what is new about today is the use of the host populations’ children as play things of the elites, the 1 percenters that control the fate of nations:

“A longstanding theory about Jeffrey Epstein and how he amassed over a half-billion dollars contends that he was running a high-classblackmail operation, in which powerful men were lured into having sex with underage women. According to accuser Maria Farmer, Epstein's New York mansion - (which was reportedly "stocked with young female "masseuses"" and "A discreet room with massage table, lubricants and, no doubt, cameras stood ready off the main lobby") says the Manhattan home was under constant CCTV surveillance and had a "media room" on the first floor, according to an interview with CBS This Morning (via The Sun). The now 49-year-old told CBS This Morning how Epstein's' home was under constant TV surveillance. She told co-host Anthony Mason how Epstein showed her the 'media room'. Maria said: "The main thing he did when I walked in and thought was interesting, he showed me where the men monitoring everything were. "So if you’re facing the house, there’s a window on the right that’s barred – that’s the room, the ‘media room’ is what he called it. "And so there was a door that looked like an invisible door with all this limestone and everything and you push it and you go in and I saw all the cameras. She then points to how she remembers the televisions were stack on top of each other. Maria said: "What it was – was like old televisions basically, like stacked." "They were monitors inside this cabinet and there were men sitting here and I looked on the cameras and I saw toilet, toilet, bed, bed, toilet, bed. "And I was like I’m never going to use the restroom here and I am never going to sleep here." -The Sun.

Biological Realities and the Gender Agenda By Mrs Vera West

     The failure of the gender agenda is all-round us, but lies and deception continue to hold the system up. Thus, women across the West struggle to pass even a basic military fitness test, but the military still marches on with the equalism myth:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-11-21-obamas-social-experimentation-higher-fail-rates-women.html

“Barack Obama hasn’t been president for going on three years, but many of his policies live on, including some he pushed on the US military. Worse, the policies are having a deleterious effect on women who are trying to serve in combat roles they aren’t suited for because of their gender, according to a new report. The Center for Military Readiness, which supports traditional gender roles for men and women in the military, notes that 84 percent of women who take the new Army combat physical fitness test do not pass it. The group says that’s merely one of the signs that Obama’s “social experiment” with the military is not effective. “In December 2015, former Defense Secretary Ashton Carter overturned policy and authorized women to serve in direct ground combat (infantry) units. These are the fighting teams that attack the enemy with deliberate offensive action – missions beyond the experience of being ‘in harm’s way,'” the report said. Mind you, Cabinet secretaries serve at the pleasure of the president and they are there to enact his policies, not their own. So this decision by Carter was not made in a vacuum; it came from the then-commander-in-chief. CMR, in its report, noted further that women “are serving with men as they always have.” However, “in two major categories — unequal physical capabilities and sexual misconduct — signs of a failing social experiment are increasingly obvious.”

Softcore Porn Ads? Pushing the Boundaries, Always By Mrs Vera West

     Thanks to the editor for this one as we enter the slow news period, with even the elites getting a bit tired, and they work 24/7, almost as hard as us.
So, we have:
  https://www.adelaidenow.com.au/lifestyle/fashion/clever-supportive-or-inappropriate-racy-new-bonds-ad-sparks-uproar/news-story/663d45843e60af9631162e40547ed471?type=curated&position=5&overallPos=5&utm_source=AdelaideNow&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=editorial

“The models behind Bonds’ controversial campaign have spoken out after their underwear shoot went viral. Real-life couple Nicolas Rivet, 26, and Steve Samuel, 27, described the uproar as “confronting” and rejected criticism that the shoot resembled “softcore porn”, but said they had received “overwhelming support” since the campaign was released. Shot in Sydney and posted to Bonds’ official Instagram page, the ad depicts the two men kissing, posing topless and wearing Bonds boxers. Speaking exclusively to News Corp today, the Melbourne-based couple said the Bonds campaign was an important step “to see themselves (same-sex couples) being represented in the media”. “The main issue is that the photo wouldn’t be causing as much controversy if it was a straight couple,” Rivet said. “I think we need move away from this hetero-normative narrative, if we really want to see a change.” Samuel added: “They see two gay people that are kissing, and they think it’s racy … but that’s not what they (Bonds) were trying to achieve.” “A lot of people are saying it’s like softcore porn but we don’t see it like that,” Rivet said. “We’re two adults showing their love for one another. It’s just a little smooch, really.”

Weekly Transgender News for the Dissent Right By Mrs Vera West

  https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/homosexual-fella-cast-as-cinderellas-fairy-godmother-in-upcoming-live-action-movie

“The role of the fairy godmother in Sony’s upcoming live-action Cinderella movie will be played by a homosexual man. Billy Porter, 50, has been known for his current role as Pray Tell in the FX ballroom drama Pose, as well as for the extravagant hats and dresses he wears. Due to be released in 2021, Sony’s version of the classic Cinderella tale has been billed as a modern story that features an orphan girl who finds true love with a prince despite years of enslavement by her wicked stepmother. The role of Prince Charming reportedly has not yet been cast. The Emmy Award-winning Porter plays the role of a fairy godmother who grants a wish to Cinderella, who is played by popular Cuban-American singer Camila Cabello. According to a statement from Sony, Cabello will be “integrally involved in the music for the film.” The production is being directed by Kay Cannon, who has helmed the Pitch Perfect movie franchise, as well as several television productions.

Uncle Len, Comes out as Black, Disabled, LGBT (?) and a Womyn By Uncle Len, the Gender Bender, Offender Return to Sender

     Emails fly into the ALOR mail box, where once pigeons blissfully slept, constantly asking questions about Uncle Len. Questions like: what is the thickness of the corrugated iron in his shed, and why is a product, which is obviously steel (having a carbon content, and hence by definition, mild steel) called “iron” anyway? Then there are email letters asking about Uncle Len’s gender status. I am pleased to publicly respond that I now identify with all genders, and all creatures, making my sexually completely multidimensional, universal, cosmopolitan and global. Just as the good folk of the University and College Union (UCU) propose:
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/11/17/university-and-college-union-anyone-can-self-identify-black/

“The University and College Union (UCU) has declared that anyone can “self-identify” as “black, disabled, LGBT+ or women”. “UCU has a long history (from predecessor unions) of enabling members to self-identify whether that is being black, disabled, LGBT+ or women [sic],” a six-page position statement from the union, which “represents over 120,000 academics, lecturers, trainers, instructors, researchers, managers, administrators, computer staff, librarians and postgraduates in universities, colleges, prisons, adult education and training organisations across the UK.” “UCU supports the right of all women (including trans women) to safe spaces… UCU also supports a social, rather than a medical, model of gender recognition that will help challenge repressive gender stereotypes in the workplace and in society,” the statement added. The document focused primarily on gender like this, but that reference to “enabling members to self-identify whether that is being black, disabled, LGBT+ or women” was repeated three times.

OOPs … There Goes Our Once Favourite Lesbian Critic of Feminism! By Mrs Vera West

     Like many conservative critics of feminism, I have used material from academic feminist critic of feminism, Camille Paglia. But each time I quoted her, I always wondered, would this be a double-edged sword? Of course, how could it not eventually be?
  https://www.eurocanadian.ca/2019/09/camille-paglias-approval-child-pornography-sexual-contact-with-children.html#more

“Camille Paglia is a self-described libertarian feminist and is a professor of Humanities and Media Studies at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. For a number of years now, Paglia has been promoted by conservative pundits and media outlets as a sane voice of reason in the midst of an increasingly absurd and malevolent political climate. She is touted as being a renegade feminist, and as an unlikely ally who daringly opposes the most egregious excesses of modern feminist philosophy. YouTube abounds with videos dating all the way back to the early 90s of Paglia playing the foil to mainstream feminist currents. Paglia has gone on Fox News to speak with Tucker Carlson, who recommended her most recent book, calling her "one of the more interesting people out there". Breitbart recently published an article in support of Paglia, praising her as a renowned scholar, and applauded her criticism of "social justice culture on campus". Paglia is frequently promoted by Ben Shapiro's online news publication, The Daily Wire, often to showcase her most recent takes on the subjects of transgenderism, feminism, and campus politics.

Defend Our Fire Fighting Women! By Mrs Vera West

     Few people nowadays are as pro-family as me, but I have to take the sided of the pregnant lady fire fighter who is going out to do her duty when the country side is in crisis. Leave to one side the question of how this towering inferno happened; it did, and fire fighters now have to deal with it.
  https://metro.co.uk/2019/11/13/firefighter-trolled-helping-australia-bushfires-pregnant-11090588/

“A pregnant firefighter has hit back at critics who said she should not be helping fight the devastating Australia bushfires. Kat Robinson-Williams is 14 weeks pregnant and has written a powerful post saying she would not ‘just stay behind.’ Kat, 23, has been given the all-clear by her doctor and said she will continue to help the crisis, which has already claimed three lives. She wrote on Instagram: ‘Yes I am a firefighter. No, I’m not a man. Yes, I am pregnant. No, I don’t care if you don’t like it.’ Kat is the third generation of her family to volunteer with the New South Wales (NSW) Rural Fire Service. She has volunteered with them for 11 years, following in the footsteps of her mother who also fought blazes while expecting. Kat is one of thousands of firefighters battling more than 150 fires that have been raging for a week across a 100,000 hectare area. The expectant mum took to social media after several of her friends told her ‘you shouldn’t be doing this.’ As well as a rebuke, she also posted several pictures of herself in firefighting gear on the way to an incident. Kat told the BBC: ‘I’m not the first pregnant firefighter and I’m not going to be the last one. ‘I’m still in a position where I’m able to help so I will. ‘I wanted to tell them I’m okay and that I’m not just going to stop. ‘I’ll stop when my body tells me to stop.’”

Pro-Life Display Banned because People Might Dare to Think it was Pro-Life By Mrs Vera West

     Quite rightly so, too. Fancy letting those pro-lifers have a voice, in a Christian college, too! Whatever is the world coming to?
  https://www.thecollegefix.com/christian-college-bans-pro-life-display-because-people-might-think-its-pro-life/

“A Christian college refused to allow a display of Christian crosses to honor “abortion victims,” saying it would be “divisive,” according to email correspondence obtained by conservative and civil liberties groups. “I didn’t think it was really going to be a problem at all,” Emily Kokot, treasurer and secretary for Young Americans for Freedom at Rocky Mountain College, told The College Fix in a phone interview. That’s because “for the last couple of years,” the administration has allowed the campus affiliate of the Young America’s Foundation to install “a 9/11 memorial where we put flags up on the ground on the campus outside” (below), she said. Instead, Dean of Student Life Brad Nason told Kokot that “we draw the line at public displays of divisive topics,” in an email referenced by Young America’s Foundation and the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education. (Kokot works part-time in Nason’s office.) Pressed as to why public displays are not allowed, Nason responded that “we have effectively eliminated every student’s ability to choose to engage or not engage with that issue” if the college allows public displays. They could also imply the endorsement of the college, he wrote.”

No Speaky English By Paul Walker

     It is good to see that the justice systems is all lubricated and smooth working. Relax and smell the roses, while they last. Maybe the terrifying climate change bushfires will cook them, so make the most of it!

“A Sydney man accused of meeting a drunk woman outside a pub and raping her in a laneway has been bailed after a court noted he can’t speak English. Sayer Hamood Jaber Alenezi, 38, faced Parramatta Bail Court on Saturday on two counts of aggravated sexual assault. Police allege he approached a 22-year-old woman about 1.30am on Sunday outside the Courthouse Hotel on Oxford Street after she lost touch with her friends inside the pub. The pair then walked about one kilometre to Turner Lane in Woolloomooloo, where the woman says she was twice sexually assaulted by the man. “The complainant appeared to be targeted by the accused due to her intoxication and that no doubt will be part of the prosecution case,” police prosecutor Mr Kwong told the court. “(Her being a stranger) contributes to the risk of endangering the community.” But while their movements towards the laneway were caught on CCTV, there isn’t any footage of the alleged rape, the court was told.”

Are Girls Real? By Mrs Vera West

     We are set to at least find out a legal answer to this question. I fear that the answer in this socially constructed, or is it deconstructed world, is that girls are not real, and nothing is except white racism, and eternal white guilt:
  https://www.christianpost.com/news/parents-whose-6-year-old-was-taught-girls-are-not-real-file-lawsuit-against-school-teacher.html?fbclid=IwAR0Q0L2iKqNfS10C9U72T4piyQm7N4l0iK-nKCI4p6zBARhfwDw-tBUQvRs

“Parents who filed a human rights complaint against a school where their 6-year-old daughter was being taught that "there’s no such thing as boys and girls” have now filed a lawsuit against the school board, principal, and the teacher. The teacher, who taught a first grade class at Devonshire Community Public School in Ontario, Canada, last year, presented a YouTube video on gender called "He, She, and They?!?—Gender: Queer Kid Stuff #2," which was part of the lesson plan that day, Pamela Buffone, the mother of the 6-year-old girl, told The Post Millennial earlier this year. Buffone and her husband subsequently filed a complaint with the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal against the school system after their daughter started worrying she might not be female after watching that video. Last week, The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, a legal advocacy organization specializing in Canadian constitutional law that is representing the Buffones and their daughter, filed an amended application noting that child's rights to security of the person and equality under relevant sections of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms were infringed, Radio Canada International reported Tuesday.”

“Black Trans and Cis Women, Gender-Nonconforming, and Nonbinary People are the Backbone of our Democracy.” By Charles Taylor

     Every day Breitbart.com reports on some member of the new class of deranged bs chatterers, often an actor saying that Trump is insane, etc. But, there are seldom any replies back along the same lines from conservatives, who seem to think that old style English politeness, of talking things over a cup of tea solves cultural and other wars. But, there is ample material to go into battle returning fire for fire, on all fronts, not just issues of sanity and senility. Consider the latest from Democrat presidential candidate, fake Indian, Elizabeth Warren, who in one hellscape scenario could become president of the socialist banana republic of the USA, with disastrous existential consequences for Australia:
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/11/08/elizabeth-warren-black-trans-nonbinary-people-are-backbone-of-our-democracy/

““Black trans and cis women, gender-nonconforming, and nonbinary people are the backbone of our democracy,” said a Thursday statement from Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). Warren issued the remark after sealing the endorsement of the radical activist group dubbed “Black Womxn For.” Warren has “a deep understanding of how racism and gender discrimination don’t just compound income inequality but are actually central to maintaining the status quo,” the group declared. The activist group prefaced its endorsement with a frightening picture of the 2016 presidential election, proclaiming that it “laid bare what many Black women, gender non-conforming, and non-binary, and queer folk know deeply; that this nation embraces white supremacy and its evils, even at the expense of itself.” While the activists acknowledge that a single candidate cannot solve all of their grievances, they endorse Warren “with the full weight of accountability.” “Our endorsement is not a blanket approval of all of her acts, both past, present, and future but rather a firm and calculated understanding that should she fall short of her commitments to us and our communities she will be held to account,” the group stated, listing off the promises Warren made to the Black Womxn For community.

The Communist Universities By James Reed

     These comments are about American universities becoming more communist, but what would the good professor, or ex-professor, think of Australian universities which largely exist on Chinese student money?
  https://www.thecollegefix.com/columbia-professor-who-fled-communism-resigns-says-university-is-becoming-communist/

“A Romania-born academic says he recently left his tenured position at Columbia University because the Ivy League school is “on its way toward full blown communism,” according to a Romanian TV interview translated by a Romanian-American immigrant. Prof. Andrei Serban, an award-winning director, complained about the increasing social justice demands he faced in the theater department in the interview, which aired on Romania’s TVR1 Oct. 26. One prominent example he gave: pressure to admit a transgender applicant who auditioned as Juliet from “Romeo and Juliet.” Andy Ionescu, a native Romianian speaker who immigrated to the United States in 1999, told The College Fix in a Twitter message that he translated the interview. He said it was likely the first time that Serban made his resignation publicly known. Columbia still lists Serban as an active professor. Media relations did not respond to an email from The Fix, and Serban’s department did not return a voicemail. Serban did not respond to an email. The TV host expresses incredulity at multiple points in the interview, seemingly shocked that the American higher education system is headed toward communism. Serban fled from the ideology, which ruled Romania for much of the 20th century. Serban says in the interview that after a faculty member retired, the remaining professors in the department were called in to a meeting to discuss a replacement.

Now Sex has been Made Illegal! By Mrs Vera West

     Read between the lines, and study the implication of this proposal, and that is what you have:
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7655815/How-soon-criminal-offence-lie-trying-romantic-partner.html

“Lying to a partner to convince them to have sex could soon be illegal under proposed laws. The New South Wales Law Reform Commission recommended that if a physical relationship eventuated after a person was dishonest about themselves, sexual assault charges should apply. The proposal contains a clause in regards to liars and people who 'fraudulently induce' others into sexual activity. 'We propose that the law should provide that a person who is fraudulently induced to participate in sexual activity does not, in law, consent to sexual activity,' the Commission said in its review of consent laws. Sydney University criminologist Andrew Dyer told 10 Daily the proposed changes were profound. 'Telling someone you love them when you don't, pretending to be rich and well connected when you are not, claiming educational achievements that you don't possess, denying a complex sexual history - say, with same sex partners - could all conceivably count as fraudulently obtaining sexual consent,' he said. The reforms would cover conversations on dating apps such as Tinder as well as real-life encounters. They would apply to people of all genders and would forcing people to be careful about what they say about themselves to prospective lovers. 'If the boast that you have made induces somebody to participate in sexual activity with you, then you are liable to spend a long time in jail,' Mr Dyer said. The proposal comes as research shows people tend to lie when they are trying to impress prospective partners. NSW Attorney-General Mark Speakman has requested for anyone with views on the proposal to lodge a submission to the Commission by Monday November 18.”

Bloodmoon Bleeds Out! By Michael Ferguson

     The TV show Game of Thrones was highly politically correct, with the usual race stuff, empowered feminists and the like, but the prequel show was to be over-the-top “woke.” However, it will not be, mercifully:
  https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/10254771/game-of-thrones-prequel-axed/

“THE Game of Thrones prequel starring Naomi Watts was axed after HBO decided the £30million pilot was “too woke”. It was to feature the first White Walker as black, put lesbian characters at the heart of the plot and make one of Ned Stark’s ancestors mixed race. The series, in which the main theme was to be colonialism, was being run by writer and producer Jane Goldman — married to TV and radio presenter Jonathan Ross. But after three years of work, the show — which had the working title Bloodmoon — was suddenly shelved for good this week. HBO instead announced a different prequel called House of the Dragon, said to be more similar to the original series. The ten-parter will be based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood. A source said: “HBO were terrified the first prequel would scare hardcore fans. It was very different to the original series, but was very brave and bold. “Plainly it was too ambitious for bosses who thought it might alienate viewers. The talk is that the new script is very average but deemed a safe option.”

Feminist (Black?) Vikings? By Brian Simpson and Mrs Vera West

     The TV series, Vikings, had shield maidens, bands of female warriors, as part of its stable environment. The fact of the matter is that evidence for the existence of shield maidens is as scanty as their dress. In fact, the mainstream are at present championing the case of discovering ONE Viking female warrior:

  https://www.ancient-origins.net/news-history-archaeology/viking-warrior-woman-0012813

“THE FACE of a 1,000-year-old Viking warrior women has been reconstructed by scientists. The amazing reconstruction is complete with a gruesome battle wound on her skull and layered skin. British scientists brought the Viking woman to life using facial reconstruction technology. They based their work on a skeleton found in a Viking graveyard in Solør, Norway, which is now preserved in Oslo's Museum of Cultural History. The female warrior was buried surrounded by deadly weapons but was not initially considered to be a warrior because of her gender. She was buried with a hoard of weapons including arrows, a sword, a spear and an axe but the dent in her head was a bigger clue about her past. The dent in her skull was consistent with a sword wound and she was placed in her grave with her head resting on a shield. Experts are unsure whether the head injury is what caused the Viking woman's death. However, archaelogist Ella Al-Shamahi told The Guardian that this is "the first evidence ever found of a Viking woman with a battle injury".
