Today, Connie and I went caving in Las Breñas cave.
A lava tube extended during COVID by an English/Dutch group of cavers.
The end.

Translation follows for the Wokerati generation, in the interest of diversity and inclusion.

Today, a #homophobic #racist #xenophobic English Brexiteer went caving with a #German #lesbian in a #spanishcave #prideflag #spanishflag, #germanflag #nomasks #petrolcar #weathergreat #globalboiling #everythingwrongisbecauseofbrexit.

Am I getting this DEI melarky right everyone?
I'm trying to keep up with technology and modern life.
Answers on a postcard please. 😏

You did better at caving in the canaries than we did! Maybe we should try lanzarote next time

Agree with cap n chris that things seem to have got worse. We got thrown out of one cave down south although tiptoed back later and got photos of it. The rubbish and graffiti was done by locals - ironic isn't it.

Nice to hear some decent music on a caving video, instead of the usual 'plinky-plonky' stuff that seems to be normally used.

I loved Cueva el Paso with its beautiful passages and the second entrance overlooking the sea:

Can we please keep on topic and avoid personal comments whether you agree with others' viewpoints or not? Moderator comment.
 
I would argue the 'topic', ie. Original post, is extremely sarcastic and ridiculing the concept of inclusivity. Inclusivity is the antithesis to oppression. So if the original 'topic' is enabling this oppression - for example, by suggesting that being gay, believing in the climate crisis, or calling out racism is unacceptable. Poking fun at 'diversity and inclusion' is a very odd thing to do, and suggests that the person saying it is the opposite - exclusive. I believe we have a responsibility to call each other out on things like this, I would expect and appreciate other people calling me out on the same. I'm sure this kind of wound up response is exactly what cap n Chris wanted, but the good thing about is wokerati warriors is that we're not afraid to stand up for what is right.
Apologies for my 'personal' comment, I was tired of seeing so many sexist, transphobic etc comments on the forum and didn't have the energy to defend it coherently at the time.

If you see comments that violate the forum rules, there is an option to report the post so it is flagged to the moderators to deal with. Fortunately, most of the time, most users stick within the rules and there are very few reported posts, so when this does happen, it tends to be dealt with swiftly.

Personal insults eg:
you're a knob
are against the forum rules.

Understood. I can't delete my original post for some reason but happy for a moderator to do it.
