Whom the Gods destroy, they first....
I have spoken before of my 'view' that the 2 world wars first sent women neurotic and then psychotic.
It is not possible to live with someone who is in either of those mental conditions and remain totally sane, and yet society has had to. Nations have had to. Men and children have had to. Our legislators have had to.
'Having to' is a form of oppression and drives one mad in turn. The social effect is schizophrenia.
More than 500 people were murdered in Chicago last year. Yet Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel still found time to berate the fast-food franchise Chick-fil-A for not sharing “Chicago values” — apparently, because its founder does not approve of gay marriage.
Graphic language, nudity, and sex are now commonplace in movies and on cable television. At the same time, there is now almost no tolerance for casual and slangy banter in the media or the workplace.
A boss who calls an employee “honey” might face accusations of fostering a hostile work environment, yet a television producer whose program shows an 18-year-old having sex does not.
Many colleges offer courses on lurid themes from masturbation to prostitution, even as campus sexual-harassment suits over hurtful language are at an all-time high.
Criminal sexual activity is sometimes not as professionally injurious as politically incorrect thoughts about sex and gender.
Former New York governor Eliot Spitzer — found to have hired prostitutes on a number of occasions during his time in office — was given a CNN news show despite the scandal. But when former Miss California Carrie Prejean was asked in the Miss USA pageant whether she endorsed gay marriage, she said no — and thereby earned nearly as much popular condemnation for her candid defense of traditional marriage as Spitzer had for his purchased affairs.
Critics were outraged that talk-show host Rush Limbaugh grossly insulted birth-control activist Sandra Fluke. Amid the attention, Fluke was canonized for her position that federal health-care plans should pay for the contraceptive costs of all women. Yet in comparison to Fluke’s well-publicized victimhood, there has been a veritable news blackout for the trial of the macabre Dr. Kermit Gosnell, charged with killing and mutilating in gruesome fashion seven babies during a long career of conducting sometimes illegal late-term abortions.
Had Gosnell’s aborted victims been canines instead of humans — compare the minimal coverage of the Gosnell trial with the widespread media condemnation of dog-killing quarterback Michael Vick — perhaps the doctor’s mayhem likewise would have been front-page news outside of Philadelphia. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/345826/postmodern-prudes
Long ago, I argued that the end result of Lawrence v. Texas, and ultimately the legalization of gay marriage, would ineluctably lead to calls to polygamous marriage, and in some fringe cases, incest. Here I am arguing it in 2005. What I was told at the time, essentially was:
"Ah, the famed ’slippery slope’ argument. It goes like this: "Opening the concept of marriage to any interpretation will lead to a slippery slope for any type of relationship to emerge as the new norm.
This is patently offensive. It says that if a loving gay couple can marry, we will have to allow a zookeeper somewhere to marry his monkey. Then, we have to allow Jethro to marry 8 women. We have to allow dad to marry his daughter."
But that response was stupid. Because it was essentially, "Your artificial definition of marriage is monstrous. But my artificial definition of marriage will hold, impervious, for as long as the sun burns hot in space."
But, I was right, of course. Now that gay marriage seems to be becoming fixed as an accepted right, we find ourselves faced with the next logical push for expansion of marriage. In Slate today, Jillian Keenan has penned an article urging the legalization of polygamy. Indeed, according to her, it’s a feminist imperative.
"While the Supreme Court and the rest of us are all focused on the human right of marriage equality, let’s not forget that the fight doesn’t end with same-sex marriage. We need to legalize polygamy, too. Legalized polygamy in the United States is the constitutional, feminist, and sex-positive choice. More importantly, it would actually help protect, empower, and strengthen women,children, and families."
It will empower women! Indeed, look at how empowered women are in all the polygamous societies that currently exist in the world. And in polygamous societies all throughout history.
Oh. Wait. It’s the exact opposite of that, isn’t it?..........
Eight years ago,the slippery slope polygamy argument was just a load of Rick Santorum, wingnut, Christian bullsh*t. Today, it turns out it was just a logical prediction that was correct, and entirely foreseeable. http://www.qando.net/?p=15112

Re: Whom the Gods destroy, they first....
clearly feminitism is a form of psychosis as it refutes reality and forces folk to knuckle under to an arrant lie totaly enforceable by insane new age feminit laws - eg wimyn have been repressed by men for 10 000 years and the gynecological ravings of Dworkin now taught at universities in wimyn's studies which brainwash new age sophomores that they are doing it tough all because of systematised repression by the patrarchy;
in the end the preciousness will believe pigs will sprout wings and fly
Re: Whom the Gods destroy, they first....
Great summary there Percy, of the moral confusion that confounds the world. "Tolerance" and "Oppression" side by side.
Christianity and Islam both preach tolerance but neither Christians nor Muslims practice what they preach.
Meanwhile in Burma, devout Buddhist monks from that peace-loving religion are beating Muslim boys to death while the police look on and video the action.
