Ranting a little bc I don't think anyone here knows what I'm talking about

Conf2021: the most inclusive of all time. Special consideration given to sexual minorities, ppl from countries that don't usually attend, the disabled etc

Conf2022: wow, that's very difficult so we're just going to half-arse it

Conf2023: na, let's not bother with any of that. It'll be an in-person conference of about 300 white guys talking to themselves.

FFS. What's wrong with you ppl?

If anyone wants a bright psychology graduate with experience of working with vulnerable young people about now would be a good time to mention it. My daughter has been working for a charity in Cardiff as an intern for a few months, prev worked in a special school.

On this day of utter ridiculousness in the Houses of Parliament, Sant Steffan, I am reminded of this from Kierkegaard.

Being told there is nothing left in the national coffers to feed the hungry or to warm the bodies of the cold by some bloke sitting on a golden throne is demeaning to all of us.

Eu/UK pol 

My bet is that EU attention is going to be on Ukraine for decades. Not Scotland, not Wales.

They'll be battling to keep everything running with reduced funds coming in and urgent needs for rebuilding and support.

Independence is very unlikely to lead to rejoining the EU, IMO, unless Scotland and Wales are net contributors to EU budgets.

Following on from yesterday's thought; if one compares the populations of the valleys councils (which I've taken to be RCT, BG, Caerphilly, Torfaen and Merthyr - open to challenge if anyone thinks this is wrong), the population has overall decreased between the census results.

Not by much, it is true. But that's quite a stark result when the overall population has increased.

There's a lot of wishful thinking about the Scottish referendum.

For one thing, a lot of SNP voters voted Brexit. Possibly even a majority, I'm not sure.

Even if there was independence and there was a majority to rejoin the EU, there's no guarantee that the EU would accept Scotland. Seems unlikely on paper that they would, esp if Ukraine joins first.

The population of much of the South Wales Valleys are a) getting older and b) in parts actually reducing.

And this has been a trend for a long time.

Hardly surprising - the message that the kids get when they leave school is to get out, and if possible never come back.

Swansea 1888: two people sentenced to 10 years 'penal servitude' for attempting to induce a miscarriage. Abortion. newspapers.library.wales/view/

Urrgghh. Today's 'trans scare' story is that a person, apparently wearing male clothing, is triggering for a rape victim.

Because she doesn't trust men.

Rant about conservative evangelicals 

That's not even including the story of a parent that believed he was being told by the deity to murder his own child, which is another whole can of worms that Christians rarely engage with.

If it was really a great biblical example of faith by a father of the faith, why is it unacceptable for anyone else to use the same reasoning?

Rant about conservative evangelicals 

The Bible says nothing about "all lives being precious". Nothing.

If anything, it's exactly the opposite. Some lives are seen as worthless. Some people deserve to die (sometimes just because of association with others), sometimes to the third generation.

Sometimes people are killed because they doubt. Sometimes they die because the hero is collecting foreskins. Sometimes women are cursed and miscarry. Sometimes all first-born are killed.

See, I've read it.

The bullshit surrounding q-a*on has really opened my eyes to the reality: religion is often conspiracy - and there are a lot of people who would rather believe the conspiracy than reality.

Because once you've accepted one conspiracy, it's easy to build more explanations and complications upon it.

To the extent that you deny reality rather than give up your conspiracy

I know this sounds like low-level sarcasm, but I really feel like this sometimes; it would be nice to live in a black-white binary world where everyone accepted what was 'right' and 'wrong'

Instead of reality - where one has to actually listen to other people and think about things

Possibly just me, but I'm not sure Walesonline really needs an onlyfans correspondent.

Haha beautiful. Gwrandais i ar Radio Cymru 2 y bore 'ma ac.. roedd cân Cymraeg gyda lyrics nonsense yn saesneg.

Every child in Wales learns a bit of Welsh. All of them. So of course there are people of different ethnicities who speak the language

Some, I'm sure, speak it better than others. But who is anyone to claim that a Muslim in a hijab can't possibly be speaking Welsh? I mean, really.

I can't tell you how *mad* it makes me when other people imply that only white people speak Cymraeg.

Utter crap. Racist crap too.

We are overrun with splosh products. Make it stop.

Owww diddums. Grant Shapps is ang-gwee.
