More PC about PCs. by johnnythemonkey on 18 March 2010 9:15pm
 
I've read that there is now a Scottish Police Muslim Association (funded by taxpayers of course. )
What is the purpose of their existence ? We already have a Gay Police Association and a Black Police Association and no doubt many other such rubbish.
Apparently one of the mission statements of the Gay Police is to offer support and advice to gay police employees. What advice do they need that is job related ? Why can't homosexuals just get on with their bedroom stuff and just live with the rest of us as a community ? I like to rub The Wee Yin's tummy in a circular motion. Could I join a Police Tummy Rubbers Association. ( we would of couse form a different group for us circular motion guys. ) Get my drift? How many minorities are there ?
My friend Billy is a white heterosexual Catholic policeman. Does he need advice ?
Btw, there is a Christian Police Association ( dunno why ) but they are unfunded. It would be silly funding them wouldn't it ? 98.3% of the local population are white Scots/Irish.

Oh you DO go on.....
May I suggest crochet, golf or stamp collecting?

I already do all of those suggested activities and I'm a black Muslim homosexual policeman into the bargain.
What a busy life I lead, yet I never need advice ! :)

More of my thoughts on PC nonsense. Bullying ! Firstly, I will acknowledge that it exists and it is a terrible thing.
I don't think that it has increased in my lifetime but people's whinging has. Usually inadequate parents that breed inadequate children. There is a natural process amongst males that rightly or wrongly leads some to rise and others not to. Interfering with that goes against nature. Noone wants their kid picked on but I've dealt with any issues that came my girls way without having to complain to their school.
Meg works in education and tells me that they are plagued with complaining parents.
How come my parents brought up six of us that weren't 'bullied' ? Meg's parents brought up four and none of my nieces and nephews have had problems that just aren't part of life.
Kids lives are being monitored so much that they can't have a usual playground life.
Work place'bullying' is usually cried out by incompetents.
At work, some people need to grow a backbone.
Schoolkids ? Getting a slap in the mouth will do them no harm. Anything more serious should be police involvement. Verbal crap? Teach your kids to deal with it.

My eldest daughter was bullied horrendously at school. She was a tiny little thing and at aged 5, a 12 year old girl took it upon herself to swing her around by her neck, on a daily basis. jess had nightmares, started wetting the bed and her learning all but ceased. After attempting to get the school to intervene, and to be told that she needed to harden up ( at 5 years of age). the parents of the kid didn't want to know. In the end I was told that nothing could be done and we changed schools, she blossomed from there on in.

Johnny you're lucky that your kids weren't bullied. Maybe if they were you'd have a bit more compassion. I imagine your attitide is much the same as the parents of the kid that made a little girl's life a misery.

Johnny, I have been a victim of bullying, both at school and in the workplace. And I am certainly not 'incompetent'.

I was bullied when i lived in Scotland. It was begun by my maths teacher, who would make me stand up in class, ask questions he knew I had no answers to and would have the whole class taunting and laughing as he pointed out how "Australians might be able to play cricket but aren't good at maths".
This behaviour went on for a few months. The whole class took his lead. the last time i ever attended that school was the day I walked home with several of the boys from that class following me home , throwing glass filled snowballs at me until my legs were lacerated and my shoes were literally full of blood. Mum took one look at me and burst into tears and went to the school the next day and removed my possessions, she wouldn't let me walk back thought the gates. Dad (who was a high school teacher at the time, in Scotland) went to see the teacher and principal and was met with disinterest and a "walls up" attitude. it turned out that he didn't 'care for Australians much'.
I changed schools and didn't have problems there. It was a hell of an experience.
Oh by the way, I'm not incompetent either. And is that a usual playground life? Not where I come from it isn't.

Sounds like a mere flesh wound to me.
It's amazing how my entire family have escaped those incidents. I think that breeding is the word.
Missy, you only think that you are not incompetent at your work.

That's exactly the response I expected from you. How predictable and pathetic. If you had experienced bullying yourself, you wouldn't be so insensitive. I suppose you were the one doing the bullying at your school.

Yes it is amazing....you must be the chosen ones.
