A confederacy of common sense has formed in opposition to a massive, big-government social experiment by the Obama administration to "run roughshod" over the democratic process (common sense, pace the uppity Ms Parks, says niggers don't ride) by giving transgender students equal rights. Now that reform (vandalism and fire-sales, in Standard English) is the prerogative of the neoliberal orthodoxy, a new name has had to be found for those less responsible social changes advocated by anyone to the left of Donald Trump. Experiment seems to fit the bill, and was used quite recently by the more extreme candidate for the London mayoralty when referring to Sadiq Scary Muslim Khan's declared intentions to favour the city's infrastructure over the more moderate and acceptable goals of ever-bigger oligarchical follies and ever-noisier blanched pachyderms. Such right-wing delights as wog-bombing, cripple-kicking, poor-bashing and open season on melanin addicts can never be classified as experiments, because their virtues are well known, thoroughly established, and tirelessly touted by the preachers of the True Faith. They are just common sense, just like the difference between boys and girls or the way that a cold day now and then proves there's no such thing as global warming.
