If you have any female friends who are contemplating conversion to Islam as an answer to any living, spiritual or physical conundrum, insist they peruse the little article linked by the intriguing PIK below. It has always mystified me why American feminists are dead silent about the miserable living situation of the Muslim female in the modern world.
The “soft Mysoginism ” that gives entertainer Cardi B a free pass to drug and rob men is prevalent in modern western culture. I have always thought it a shame that many women (most) think that being equals to men means adopting their bad behavior. Smoking, drinking, cursing, and finally sex without strings. The list of bad behaviours can be expanded but I think the point is made. Once considered the champion of better angels of our nature. Modesty, loyalty, nurturance, empathy, and keeper of the keys to romantic love were counted among their charges.
Womens sojourn into the world of casual sex has been a disaster for many women. The misguided idealism of young women sets up the trap than “the sins of youth are a lifetimes regret. I cannot number the women I have counseld that still have issues of crippling shame and self loathing much later in life over sexual “conquests”? of youth.
If a male drugs a women for sex with her unconscious body he should be arrested because the assumption is that he is responsible for his own behavior and should be held accountable. If it is a SHE, the psychologist is working overtime trying to explain-away her behavior. If a man rapes while he is under the influence he is again held accountable and is punished. If a female takes it upon herself to get drunk and screw, again the man is prosecuted for rape and his life is ruined after she wakes and realizes what she has done.
Believe the women! Of course we should look at any and all reports of sexual impropriety without prejudice, but an automatic conviction with no responsibility toward accepting consequences for her own actions, puts the average female in a position of power that is evidenced nowhere else in modern juris prudence. The number of lives given into the hands of accusing females and their power to level an accusation, be automatically believed and ruin the life of whatever male in the cross-hairs is an example of soft misogynisism. The “there , there honey (patting on head)” you are perpetually and flawlessly innocent is another example of soft mysoginism . Please be advised : If you screw like a man, impersonally, recreationally, and without interpersonal value…Don’t expect others to take your accusations seriously when you make no bones abut your devaluing entry into your body. You will get as much respect as you reserve for yourself. and no more..
If Cardi B expects equall standing while hiding behind stories of victimhood, or the “I did what I did to survive.” crap when for every woman slipping mickeys for dollars there are a hundred more pounding out a life for whatever paycheck they can get. BUT! “There there hon’ you didn’t know what you were doing.”
I came of age in the time of Donahue, a very influential talk jock that specialized in inviting guests who despised males and had ax’s galore to grind. My parents didn’t seem to mind my reading Ruebans, “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex But Were Afraid to Ask” at the tender age of 11 or twelve. Matters of intimacy were never directly made a point of, but they were not looked upon with horror when they cropped up. With this in mind I saw the constant drubbing my gender received by Mr. Donahue, (or Alan Alda for that matter.) as totally false. At the time I saw pandering to the grudges of man-hating women as a pansies buy-in to hangin’ with and getting strokes from females. It has been a struggle with such beauties as Andrea Dworkin out there trying to convince everyone that every act of sex between males and females was a form of rape. To be sure there are sins against the feminine gender, but men are not as horrible as described by the Code Pink types.
I am interested by Camille Paglia though. She has popped every now and then for the past 25 years. She sees the damage done by the neopuritanical feminism and the fact that we have several generations who have been coddled through lives where there is no threat to their world, no famine, no great war to educate them to the true value of things. So they become shallow and fragile, wincing at every ill wind or rough word that wafts by. Be advised, Camille is a bit manic and hard to follow.
Meet Americas leading pussy Paul Ryan. First to jump ship on Trump after revelation of a hot mike moment where Trump said some lewd things about women…..11 years ago. And this crap about being “sickened”, by the Bully Boys, statements abut women marks him as a true politician…… Do not trust this man….. he will not have your back and will run at the first shot.
Who could pass the squeaky clean test dear reader…you? (think about it). I am not a Trump lover. I wish he had more class and thought before he spoke. But I am going to vote for him none the less. Because he’s got a pair. He is a bullyboy for capitalism. And there is a chance he can pull this country out of this slow burning depression it been in for the last decade. Yeah, Trump said some lewd things. Who hasn’t . It is far better than the “open borders, entitlement for votes and my office for quid pro quo play for pay” deals Hillary Clinton has cobbled together with the worst despots in the world. “With the Saudis?” Come on, get grip! They are an enemy to everything we, as freedom- defending Americans’ despise Her husband was a rapist this is no doubt ” we have the semen to prove it” and she went after the victims, defaming them to ruination even though she knew the accusations are true, to keep his butt from being impeached. She and her husband have done more crimes against this country and the women’s movement than all the locker room talk Trump can spew. The sell out and ruination of this country are the REAL actions of Hillary Clinton.
YOUR HUMBLE BLOGGIST LOST “IT” AT THE RIPE OLD AGE OF FIFTEEN. AT THAT AGE, IN THE EARLY SEVENTIES, SIR EDMUND HILLARY WAS MY MORAL COMPASS. “Because it’s there!” is enough of an excuse for the walking erection of a fifteen year old in any decade.! SO WHY DOES IT SEEM SO TERRIBLE WHEN IT IS THE OTHER WAY AROUND; WHEN IT IS A MALE TEACHER SCREWING A FEMALE STUDENT?
Women have always been considered the custodians of the higher moral ground in our culture. while men have been exiled to the outhouse of bad sexual behavior. When a man “walks the line.” it is a woman who has drawn the line. Throughout the history of western civilization women have both been repressed cherished. A troubled mix of good and bad consequences for the females. . Men, however, were deluded into thinking it is noble to sacrifice themselves to protect the innocent women. Men are expendable. We have accepted this burden. When a man bitches; he is vilified to the max by our entire culture! “Butt!” It is a bargain both sides were reconciled too. It doesn’t exist anymore. At least not at a level that meaningfully impacts society.
But I and many men and women of my generation feel that something precious has been lost to this society. The great cause of every dweeb who finally got a date. The notion that caused many a males chest to swell with pride. We would jump at the chance to risk injury or death in protecting women. Men are the expendable gender. Women, representing the good, decent part of life, are to be cherished and protected at all costs. Things are changing…
Recent surveys attest to the demise of chivalry in this society. In 1912 the “unsinkable” Titanic met an even more unsinkable iceberg. 1300 men find their eternal slumber in the eternal black, a thousand feet below under a blanket of frigid water. Only 103 females were lost. Most current male respondents stated those numbers would be inverted if the boat sank today. The men, rather than standing in harms way, would be tossing women and children out of the lifeboats to save themselves. I admit there is a lot that must be changed between men and women, but the way things are going, the good ol’ days are looking better and better.
But how would you feel if no ever one said anything as you passed. This vid is a rebuttal to the recent viral vid of a woman being “cat called” while strolling down a city sidewalk. The vid in question was crafted to expose the terrible humiliation women must endure from the inappropriate comments of men on the street.
Personal plea: Please don’t make wolf-whistles and such off limits. It is part of the spice of the gender war we all have come to know and love(within limits of course). According to my poll, (sample group is my brood ) they all would hate it if they never, ever got an occasional whistle or “Yeah baby”. I can’t find anyone who thinks the innocuous greetings in the vid were even inappropriate!
From anecdotal experience I find that most “normal” women consider a little male attention complimentary. Scenario: Two women walking down a city sidewalk. One is quite pretty, the other is a real bowser. As they walk, the men on the street occasionally wolf whistle at the pretty girl. For the homely one,… nada. How do you think the ugly girl feels about her lack of “inappropriate” attention? I suggest any fem that would object too stridently. has personal problems with their attitude. Klik to see vid.
I hope they don’t attempt to criminalize cat calls and such. It is an area fraught with potential for abuse.
Example: A recent pole issued to high school girls reports that the girls were quite offended by such attention……unless the perp was a hotty! Then they were just fine with the
At present, careers and lives are being ruined by accusations of harassment. A lot rests on the mind set of the female involved. Too much rests on the mind set of the female involved.
The game should be handled gently, gingerly. The gross, aggressive or rude behavior destroys the simple pleasures of the give and take of the gentle gender war we have always toyed with as a society, Underlying all is respect and restraint. The ambiance should be light, ephemeral; never heavy or abusive. Lets us play in our Magic Garden till’ the day fades away.
“If I am captured I will blow myself up.” Answered the female fighter when queried about the possibility of capture. At least they are spared the horrors of disguising themselves as female genitalia.
Some religious person published a book in Spain that said women must be submissive to their husbands. All I have to say is that if the lifestyle fits,…wear it!
