“Sex, Lies, and Videotape” heralded the arrival of massive new talent in Tinseltown. Steven Soderbergh’s brilliant debut, complete with an original screenplay, swept the festival circuit and won tons of awards in 1989 and 1990. From the opening credits, the director’s fluid dialogue floats over several explanatory vignettes and gives immediately set the tone for this tense psychological drama. about late 20th century bourgeois boredom, perversity, passion and betrayal.

A beaming Andie MacDowell plays a neurotic, sexually smothered housewife, anxious about every global sustainability issue but oblivious to adultery in a power suit in her own bed. That’s when an eccentric with a camcorder fetish, played by a young James Spader in his breakout role, drifts around town and awakens his stunted desires.

If you missed this late ’80s flick, don’t think of it as yuppie supper theater for white-collar boomers. It’s smart, but it also feels like a personal film for Soderbergh, given that it’s his first screenplay and it’s about a mystery filmmaker whose camera effortlessly undresses attractive women. Adding to the whimsy, the smooth-skinned director made sure to cast an attractive and unconventional leading man with a big shock of flowing locks. Young James Spader is a cult. Join immediately.

We need to stand up so women don’t have to worry about being murdered https://korsanizle.com/we-need-to-stand-up-so-women-dont-have-to-worry-about-being-murdered/ Thu, 20 Jan 2022 06:00:00 +0000 https://korsanizle.com/we-need-to-stand-up-so-women-dont-have-to-worry-about-being-murdered/ I have never experienced such a national collective expression of grief, grief and anger as I have over the past seven days.

I have never experienced such a national collective expression of grief, grief and anger as I have over the past seven days. That a wonderful young girl with so much to offer the world could be murdered while jogging after work in broad daylight shocked us all. Left us numb.

Sometimes language fails to capture the emotions of the inner world. I am a father of three daughters and I find it difficult to understand how I feel. I am appalled at our society, that our mothers, daughters and sisters are not safe. I’m ashamed but I’m also angry. The ordinary day for Ashling, going home to school and deciding to go for a run is something we all do. Ashling is all women. We can’t use “Oh, she was out late” or “She shouldn’t have been so drunk” as excuses for women to become victims of crime.

We often try to explain obnoxious and obnoxious behavior by somehow blaming the victim for putting themselves in harm’s way. And this must stop. My own wife is a teacher, after work she often goes for a run. This case really touched her. His sleep has been greatly disturbed during the week. I woke up to find her sitting up in bed thinking about Ashling, her family, what her students were going through, and ruminating on whether or not our daughters were safe.

This terrible crime has disturbed us all, but we must use this collective expression of shock to become a collective response of solidarity.

Whenever I write about violence against women in our society, I am accused of being a left-liberal who runs the Irish Examiner’s feminist program. And that’s kind of the problem here. We get distracted from focusing on the real problem by becoming defensive.

This is not to blame all men or to somehow suggest that all men are potential perpetrators of crimes. The vast majority of men are devastated by what happened last week. They feel powerless and don’t know how they can contribute to making society safer for women. So blaming them is not productive. The conversation should be inclusive. Eavan Bolland has a powerful poem called “the child of our time”. In it she explores the murder of a young boy at the hands of a UVF bomb in 1974 during the Troubles. She speaks of the need to find a “new language” so that society can protect the innocent. We need a new conversation so that no more women are murdered in their daily routine. It starts with small changes. Stop accepting pejorative jokes about female anatomy.

Stop normalizing diminishing opinions of women. It starts in our schools. Deploy healthy programs that address society’s inherent negative views of women. Parents are responsible for the children they bring into the world. The family is the most powerful system that can eradicate misogyny. What children see and experience growing up in their family of origin will overwhelmingly determine whether or not they develop healthy or pathological views of women.

There must also be a response at the government level. With the advent of the internet and ubiquitous smartphones, young children watch extremely hard content with uncanny ease. They are just a click away from brutal images that change the way a child perceives women.

Pornography dehumanizes women and can make a vulnerable child pathological in his thoughts. The research is clear. Boy A in the Anna Kreigel case consumed gruesome material such as bestiality and extreme slavery. We must act on this information. We can no longer stay in bed while our young children are exposed to such dangerous and toxic materials. This needs to stop, and we need to stop expecting these platforms to be decent and do the right thing. Without government intervention, cigarette manufacturers would continue to promote their harmful products as healthy. We need our politicians to intervene here. We also need our courts to be tougher on crimes against women. The fact that a woman can be abducted, repeatedly raped and attempted to be murdered by an abuser who only stops because he is disturbed in his evil business and is back on the streets in ten years is shocking and an indictment of our society. Leniency for such crimes trickles down to the behavior of the perpetrators.

We need systemic change. We can no longer tolerate negative talk about women that belittles them or casts them as inferior to men. We must find in Ashling Murphy’s “unreasonable end, the reason”. She fought bravely for her life, we all need to stand up now and fight for her life to bring about meaningful change. So that our mothers, daughters and sisters no longer have to worry about being murdered while going for a jog.

Why are editors and academics afraid of controversy surrounding the status of transgender people? To outsiders, it sounds like a feminist family feud — but it’s become dangerously radioactive.

The struggle is essentially about whether trans women, who are physiologically men but live as women and have undergone a “gender transition”, with or without surgery, are women or remain men.

Gendered feminists, known to their enemies as “Terfs” (trans-exclusive radical feminists), insist that biological sex is unalterable.

Their LBGTQ+ opponents accuse them of victimizing already vulnerable trans women and exposing them to further discrimination and violence. But it is more than an ideological dispute. Public figures accused of being “Terfs” or “transphobes” risk “cancellation” in public places and a torrent of insults on the internet.

South Africa first faced this strange phenomenon last year, when students at the University of Cape Town tried to block a guest lecture by Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie because of her views on transgender people.

The world’s best-known feminist author, Germaine Greer, also took enraged trans activism.

In January, Warner Brothers will organize a 20and anniversary retrospective of the Harry Potter films. Who is excluded from the jamboree because of their alleged transphobia? None other than the woman who made it all possible, Harry Potter creator JK Rowling.

The divide is partly generational: the older liberal left tends to sympathize with Rowling and her harassed and distorted ilk; young people tend to think they get what they pay for.

The struggle of South African leftists in the 1970s and 1980s aimed to expand freedom and break down barriers, especially those imposed by apartheid. The new struggle is to restrict and keep people online – and the internet is the new enforcement tool.

“I spoke about the importance of sex and have been paying the price ever since,” Rowland wrote of his Twitter traffic. “I was transphobic, ***, a bitch, a Terf. I deserved the cancellation, the punch and the death.

Perhaps the most disturbing case is that of Kathleen Stock, the gender-sensitive academic who was bullied, harassed and abused until she resigned from the University of Sussex in August.

Based on her ordeal, I argued in a previous article that trans activists violated the fundamental democratic right to hold and express one’s own opinions, won by Renaissance and Enlightenment thinkers at the cost of a huge blood money.

I lamented the resurgent medieval practice of banning heretical ideas and punishing heretics. Perhaps fearing a Twitter storm, most posts are keeping their heads down.

A complication is that with the exception of a few free market fundamentalists, most people have “red lines” where they feel free speech ends. Most Democrats, for example, would oppose the promotion of child pornography, slavery and genocide.

The underlying knot is therefore the limits of freedom of expression in a democratic society. Also at issue are the limits of protest, and when it turns into bullying and the intimidating suppression of ideas.

It is important to note that in the UK and South Africa it is completely legal to publicly maintain the unalterable masculinity of trans women.

A UK employment tribunal has convicted Meyer Forstater, a tax expert who argued her dismissal for allegedly transphobic tweets violated her rights at work, but that does not bind the judiciary.

Gender-critical academics like Stock seem unanimous in condemning discrimination against trans people, except where they think the safety of women and girls is at stake. UK law agrees, providing for “sexual spaces unique and separate” such as toilets and changing rooms.

As a legal category in South Africa, ‘unfair discrimination’ specifically involves the unjust imposition of burdens or denial of benefits. It would be a stretch to claim that Stock’s ideas have this effect.

Is gender perspective hate speech? South African law specifically defines this as “incitement to hatred” on prohibited grounds, including gender identity. UK law appears to prohibit any threatening or abusive communication intended to harass, alarm or disturb.

But Stock clearly wasn’t advocating hate or intending to harass – she’s an academic, not a hatemonger; some might even see her as a victim of hate. The university lamented her treatment and declared her innocent of “gross forgery”.

The South African Hate Speech Act expressly exempts academic and scientific investigations from its criminal provisions.

Consider the following statement from Rowling: “Trans women need and deserve protection…I feel nothing but empathy and solidarity with trans women who have been abused by men. This does not sound like hate speech.

Justifying the attempt to block Greer from speaking at Cardiff University, student women officer Rachel Melhuish said trans-exclusive views had no place in society.

Who is the self-proclaimed Melhuish to decide? It’s statements like this that have comedian Ricky Gervais complaining of a “weird new kind of fascism, of people thinking they know what you can say and what you can’t.”

There’s no need to agree with Rowlings’ defense of her position – in fact, I disagree with it – but I challenge any reasonable person to dismiss it as unbalanced or hopelessly malicious.

What is at stake is the right, within the framework of the law, to have and express one’s own thoughts. The famous maxim attributed to the French Enlightenment philosopher Voltaire applies: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it”.

If trans law enforcement doesn’t follow the law, what do they do? Why does everyone have to keep pace with the femininity of trans women? Why isn’t it enough, as Rowling says, to be a “trans ally” who opposes harassment, discrimination and violence against them?

The goal, it seems, is to create “safe” environments where trans people never have to hear what offends them.

The question is whether this is the purpose of a university – or, indeed, of any democratic forum, courts and legislatures, for example, where outspokenness and the free exchange of ideas are paramount.

Some scholars complain that the current intolerant climate makes it impossible to explore trans sexuality and the important questions it raises.

There are serious dangers in trying to silence expressions that offend or hurt someone. Recognizing this, the UK Parliament recently decriminalized the use of “insulting” language under the Public Order Act on the grounds that it amounted to censorship.

One of the consequences of the stifling of voices is the debasement of intellectual exchanges. How can belligerent extremists silence Greer, one of the most important feminist thinkers and writers of the time, because of her stance on a controversial issue?

Coercively protecting people from emotional upheaval would be the death of independent journalism, higher education, and the democratic political process. “College is not a safe space,” scientist and author Richard Dawkins reminds us. “If you need a safe space, go home, hug your stuffed animal, and suck your thumb until you’re ready.”

I’m not going to get all the details right as it all happened right before I stumbled upon the local scene. But the main thing is this:

A regional pagan organization was holding its annual board elections, and this guy—I can’t remember his real name, so I’ll just call him Steve—decided to run for executive director. And immediately, a small but very vocal group of members said, “That’s a terrible idea, and we shouldn’t let it run things.”

Steve owned several adult-oriented businesses in the Hill Country area, including a sex club dubbed “The Temple,” for which he managed to obtain a 501(c)3 religious exemption. are not a problem – I myself worked for one – but a number of young women had joined the Temple knowing that they would explore sacred sexuality, and soon after they began to find photos of themselves. on X-rated websites.

“He’s definitely not a villain, though, if you look at him in the right light.” (Image via Pixabay.)

I can’t remember why Steve shared the photos, but the consequence was that a block of people didn’t trust him and certainly didn’t want him on the board. Unfortunately, they were outvoted by members who said, “Gentiles are inherently good people. We don’t judge.

Steve was therefore appointed as the new executive director, and his first task was to embezzle thousands of dollars, which resulted in a highly publicized lawsuit and lawsuit. Steve was kicked out of the organization and a group of people left with him – not because they were involved in the embezzlement, but because they couldn’t in good conscience be part of an organization who was so critical.

Oh the pagans. My sweet summer children.

I’m telling this story today because I was reminded of it while reading the comments attached to a post on a pagan meme page: a screenshot of a Reddit thread with an affirmative, cross-supporting morality.

It’s weird to think that the story of the Witch in the Pub could cause conflict, but several transphobes squirmed out of the woodwork to express their outrage, including one die-hard TERF (Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist) who herself had even a good fit on the inclusive message and claimed the OP was biologically female no matter what their “little brains” were telling them.

And I wanted to get mad and throw vitriol at her, but she had so many filters on her profile picture that she looked like a Bratz doll from Uncanny Valley, and I ultimately couldn’t take her seriously.

For example, if you honestly believe that human eyeballs are supposed to be this big and this far apart, you won’t have an opinion on someone else’s dysphoria. I don’t make the rules.

TERF: “YOU CAN’T CHANGE BIOLOGY.” Me: “Uh. Honey.” (Image courtesy of spablab via Flickr.)

Most responses to TERF were aggressively pro-trans, which was encouraging, but one commenter took everyone to task over how. medium they were. The comment has since been deleted, but it was essentially a long rant about how anyone who condemns another for their views – no matter how bigoted or discriminatory those views are – is the real scoundrel. Or something. It was a bit difficult to follow. I think they were using talk-to-text.

It elicited a response from me, however, and I strongly encouraged the commentator to check out Karl Popper’s Paradox of Tolerance. I have no idea if they did or not, but I’ll go ahead and flesh it out here.

The paradox of tolerance states that “to maintain a tolerant society, the society must be intolerant of intolerance”: that is, if a given society is unconditionally tolerant, there will be no no checks and balances to prevent the intolerant – along with those who only seek to do harm – by oppressing others, and they will eventually take over. In Discordian terms, this is the law of eristic escalation: when we apply a destructive order (tolerating intolerance), the result is inevitably destructive disorder (intolerance dominates).

So if we give the guy with a history of exploitation the keys to the treasure because we don’t want to judge him, we can’t be surprised when he exploits the situation. If we don’t put down TERFS for defining biology by everything they learned in sixth grade health class, we can’t be shocked when they find themselves in leadership roles and start censoring anyone who doesn’t respond to their arbitrary gender criteria.

A working definition of insanity is: “Doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results.” The same goes for tolerating intolerance – we end up hurting ourselves repeatedly. (Image via Pixabay.)

There was this guy in the Houston area who… okay, I never remember the difference between a narcissist and a sociopath, but somehow there was something wrong with him, and while we were getting along, I tended to keep him at arm’s length. He left the state at some point – for a new job, I think? – and then it just sort of disappeared.

Anyway, I was out with some pagan acquaintances one night, and I was like, “Hey, whatever happened to [dude]? I haven’t heard from him for a while.

“Oh, he’s in jail,” someone said.

“Wait, what? Why?”

“Possession of child pornography. »

“What?!”

“Yeah. We told him he shouldn’t play with that stuff, but he didn’t listen.

“Wait for you knew about that?”

“Well yeah. But we Recount him, it would cause him trouble.

That was the last time I had any interaction with this particular group of pagans. I didn’t want to know what else they might not judge. And I certainly didn’t want to think about all the responsibilities that the guy had been given in the local community, because the people in charge were saying, “Now, now. Everyone deserves a chance, no matter what.

And no. In fact, not everyone does.

Fly away, little Thumper. Fly away. (Image via Pixabay.)

I want to end with a Twitter feed by Michael B. Tager, because it’s pretty much a perfect, real-life example of the Tolerance Paradox, and because by unseen sight, I have an academic crush on the bartender in the story. But it also contains a really, really important lesson for us as we navigate the path between tolerance and intolerance: keep an eye on it, then follow Tager’s lead and don’t forget it.

I was in a shitty crustpunk bar once having a beer after work. One of those shitholes where the bartenders clearly hate you. So the bartender and I were ignoring each other when someone sat down next to me and he immediately said, “no. Get out.”

And the guy next to me says, “Hey, I’m not doing anything, I’m a paying customer. and the bartender reaches under the counter for a bat or something and says, “Out. now.” and the guy leaves screaming. And he was wearing a punk uniform, I noticed

Anyway, I asked what it was and the bartender said, “You didn’t see his vest, but it was Nazi shit.” Iron Cross and all that. You come to recognize them.

And I was like, ohok and he keeps going.

This is what the bartender looks like in my head. (Image via Pixabay.)

“You need to nip it in the bud immediately. These guys come and it’s always nice and polite. And you serve them because you don’t want to cause a scandal. And then they become regulars and after a while they bring a friend. And this guy is cool too.

And then THEY bring friends and friends bring friends and they stop being cool and then you realize, oh shit, it’s a Nazi bar now. And it’s too late because they are entrenched and if you try to evict them, they cause a PROBLEM. They must therefore be closed.

And I was like, ‘oh shit.’ and he said “yeah, you have to ignore their reasonable arguments because their end goal is to be terrible, awful people.”

And then he started ignoring me again. But I haven’t forgotten it at all.

No more discord, you say? But of course! Follow the fivefold law of Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Zazzle.

“A guide for a gentleman” to fight for masculinity in the midst of toxic feminism https://korsanizle.com/a-guide-for-a-gentleman-to-fight-for-masculinity-in-the-midst-of-toxic-feminism/ Fri, 07 Jan 2022 13:11:15 +0000 https://korsanizle.com/a-guide-for-a-gentleman-to-fight-for-masculinity-in-the-midst-of-toxic-feminism/ The 21st century has not been good for people in the developed world.

The 21st century has not been good for people in the developed world. By most metrics, they lagged behind women in school, at work and at home. More and more women are now choosing to opt out of marriage and children altogether because, among other reasons, there are simply too few good men to start a family and have a family with. It seems a lot of men are fine with this, contenting themselves with beer, porn, and video games.

There are various reasons for this situation, but at the top of the list is the breakdown of the family and the absence of fathers. With fewer male role models, it logically follows that boys are more likely to become losers who can barely take care of themselves, let alone a wife and children.

The influence of media and technology is linked to this reason. Filling the void left by an absent father, the vast majority of boys are raised by the screen. While their father would teach his son virtue and play with him, now it’s Disney who indoctrinates his son with anti-man narratives and Nintendo keeps him company while he plays alone inside.

However, there is an alternative explanation for the decline of men, or at least one that goes further: modern feminism, an ideology that has vilified men, denigrated the family, and “liberated” women in the household. It can be argued that feminist ideology in schools, in the media and even in the legal system has collectively crippled men and made women actively compete with them, if not outright destroy them.

While choosing one of these explanations on its own doesn’t necessarily solve the dull man problem, it ultimately sheds light on any proposed solution. Most guides to manhood and personal success tend to focus on the first two causes: bad role models and bad habits. However, the recent book by writer SK Baskerville, Gentleman’s Guide to Manners, Sex, and World Governance, seeks to tackle this latest cause of modern feminism, as the subtitle suggests: “How to Survive as a Man in the Age of Misandry and Do it With Grace”.

Baskerville’s other goal in this book is to steer the conversation away from adopting popular poses of suave manhood (“being like David Niven or Lawrence Olivier, tying a bow tie, mixing up a martini and dancing the quadrille”) and discuss “the logic behind the rules [of being a gentleman]. “Too often men’s advice tends to dwell on these caricatures of masculinity without explaining the rationale. If that’s all the reader wants, he can read a number of manhood textbooks that cover” the different options for tying a tie, landing a plane and other daily necessities ”.

So what is the underlying principle of masculinity? According to Baskerville, it is leadership: “To be a man has always meant to be a leader, and that will always mean that… Leadership is not an option but an imperative; it also comes with the Y chromosome. All other manly virtues like strength, courage, and industry all stem from the idea that a man should lead and take responsibility. Plus, becoming a leader is all the more important in an age when true masculinity is deemed toxic and men are being urged to step back.

It is with this deeper goal in mind that Baskerville discusses the “basics” of gentlemanly habits. A lot of it is common sense: don’t use profanity, dress like a redneck, avoid silly clichés and colloquialisms, avoid vices, learn to write well, exercise and pay attention. to others, etc. Baskerville takes the time to explain the logic of every gentleman’s habit. As a man, it is essential to project an image of maturity and seriousness. Dressing like a kid, talking nonsense, and lacking in self-control all hurt this.

In his next chapter, Baskerville expands his discussion to the gentleman lifestyle, focusing on dance, music, sports, guns, military service, church, and philanthropy. While there isn’t much to unite these activities besides being things a gentleman should think about, the discussion is quite pleasant. On the contrary, Baskerville demonstrates here that conservative principles go hand in hand with being a gentleman: he exercises his autonomy, can defend himself and his country and takes responsibility for himself and his community.

Perhaps the strongest discussion in this book (aside from the introduction) is Baskerville’s treatment of the upbringing of a gentleman, in which he skillfully cuts through the pretense and sophistication that pass for sophistication. Nowadays. He rightly scoffs at the fancy degrees peddled by “prestigious universities” and provides a beautifully succinct summary of a liberal education, which would create “men with the right character and the right outlook, with full educations and self-confidence. self to acquire more as needed ”. These men learned professional skills on the job, but learned to think, live and behave in college.

Recognizing that most universities forgot about this original goal, Baskerville follows this with a quick guide to the right education in literature, history, philosophy, music, art, science and math, and foreign language – essentially liberal DIY education. Unlike similar “must read” lists of education essentials, Baskerville’s is surprisingly achievable. An average man with a normal full-time job could easily get by in a few years of free time.

Sadly, following the strongest chapter in the book is perhaps the weakest chapter on “Women and Family Life,” where Baskerville launches his indictment against feminism and its effects on the home. To be fair, it’s tasked with solving a difficult dilemma: Most women want a strong man who can support themselves and their potential children, but most women also want to be self-reliant and independent.

The best answer Baskerville can find is to seek out a “lady” who abides by the rules of courtship and does not seek to emasculate potential suitors. Unfortunately, these women are rare, which leads Baskerville to suggest looking far, even if it requires looking at women in other parts of the world. Unlike Baskerville’s educational recommendations, her advice on dating and relating to the opposite sex seems rather out of touch and easy.

When it comes to marriage and sex, Baskerville’s advice is a bit better. He is aware of the cheap view people have of marriage today, especially hedonistic young men, and argues that, on the contrary, marriage is about keeping masculinity in culture: “protecting the bond between fathers. and their children and, with her, the intact family. Moreover, for the gentleman, marriage and children quite simply come with the land: “The best training to rule the world is to start with those you love.

Nonetheless, despite attempting to remain constructive, Baskerville cannot seem to restrain his resentment and paranoia towards feminist indoctrination: “It is women, especially politically radicalized women … who will gain the upper hand, many of whom do not like. men you. ”Whether one agrees with that statement or not, it’s hard to see how it makes anything constructive. If Baskerville intends to encourage caution, he might just say so instead of giving l The impression that the majority of women today hate gentlemen, on the contrary, this statement serves mainly as a moral escape for men who have failed.

Indeed, and Baskerville conveniently omits this detail. Too many men have suffered from their own mistakes, not because of a feminist boogeywoman. Nowhere in his book does he address the common addictions (pornography, alcohol, drugs, video games) that hold back the majority of modern men, especially young men. While it can be argued that breaking these habits and assuming the male leadership role is implied, more needs to be said in the interest of relevance and practicality.

It is only too late that Baskerville appears to be addressing the problem of mediocre masculinity, as he urges men in his conclusion to take matters into their own hands and “stop taking the position that the world is unjust and unjust. that it is your duty to take every opportunity to tell the world why it is so unfair. “So, after a promising start and a well-developed background, the conclusion of Baskerville’s argument on masculinity falls somewhat to flat.

That’s not to say it’s not fun to read. True to his subject matter, Baskerville writes like a gentleman: he is witty, concise, and approachable without being unnecessarily rude or blunt. His search for other men’s guides throughout history also helps distinguish his effort from others and provides useful context for ongoing conversations about masculinity.

Overall, Baskerville’s case for men to become gentlemen is mostly solid, if a bit flawed. He relaunches the gentleman’s argument which has waned in recent years and advances the good positions. But, it will be up to his gentlemen readers to continue this momentum and apply his wisdom to the young men of today.

Yes, men find it difficult to adjust to a more feminized world, and they sure could use a little more sympathy and support, but they also have the power to be assertive and to be the leaders, the fathers. and the husbands they were meant to be. As Baskerville successfully establishes, being a gentleman is not a matter of social status, but of perception and initiative.

What is driving the sexual recession in the United States? https://korsanizle.com/what-is-driving-the-sexual-recession-in-the-united-states/ Tue, 04 Jan 2022 03:53:00 +0000 https://korsanizle.com/what-is-driving-the-sexual-recession-in-the-united-states/ Young people have less sex, and not just because they marry later. According to the General Social Survey, the percentage of single Americans between the ages of 18 and 35 who have not had sex in the past year has risen from about 16% in 2000 to over 22% in 2021.

Young people have less sex, and not just because they marry later. According to the General Social Survey, the percentage of single Americans between the ages of 18 and 35 who have not had sex in the past year has risen from about 16% in 2000 to over 22% in 2021.

Why is this happening? There are plenty of theories.

In a 2018 play for Atlantic, Editor-in-Chief Kate Julian came up with five: 1) porn and masturbation, 2) elevating other priorities over engaged relationship formation, 3) the toxic dynamics hard-coded into sex apps dating, 4) advances in feminism that allow women to say no to sex they don’t want to have, and 5) an increase in anxiety disorders.

Psychologist Jean Twenge argued in her 2017 book iGen that an entire generation had simply fallen head first into their smartphones. Teens, she reported, drive, drink, hang out and do it less, instead preferring to take photos and scroll through their bedroom security.

Last September, New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg heralded the dawn of a sexual counter-revolution. The women Goldberg interviewed (you can find a lot of them with similar opinions on TikTok) presented their rejection of sexual positivity in (as Julian’s fourth point suggests) feminist language. They are furious to have been psycho-opped in promiscuity and fold, often at a tender age. They suspect that the whole #ProudSlut schtick was a tool of the patriarchy. They wonder if selling nudes on OnlyFans is as empowering as they’ve been told. But they are categorically not interested in reverting to any sort of traditional sexual ethics.

For religious conservatives like myself, none of these explanations are particularly encouraging. The depictions of teens and young adults numbed by porn, disembodied by screens, and too career-driven to seek love are all downright dystopian. Mary Harrington and Katherine Dee paint a picture of the counterrevolution that I can support to some extent. The backlash against pornography and casual sex is good. But as the counter-revolutions go on, it’s far from being radical enough. It leaves intact the central demands of the sexual revolution: that your body is yours and that you use it as you like and that sex is what you want it to be.

Dig a little deeper into the data, however, and there is cause for hope. Brendan Hodge at the Catholic publication The pillar made useful analyzes:

[U]Young married adults who… attend church regularly seem to avoid premarital sex more than they have in the recent past.

From 2000 to 2006, 40% of young single adults who reported going to church at least once a week said they had also not had sex in the previous year. In surveys from 2014 to 2021, 50% of young adult practitioners said they had not had sex for a year.

Among those who attend church once a year or less, the change is only 13% to 16%.

Hodge also argues that the shrinking minority of never-married Americans who believe sex should be saved for marriage are more successful in sticking to their beliefs. In the early 2000s, 75 percent of 18-35 year olds who said drinking milk before buying a cow was (at least sometimes) wrong had nevertheless enjoyed an ice cold drink or two in the past year. For the period between 2014 and 2021, this number fell to 64%, a difference of 11 points. Among those who think premarital sex isn’t a big deal, the change fell from 91% to 88%.

Hodge’s findings fit perfectly with the predictions and observations of CS Lewis in his 1946 essay “The Decline of Religion,” in which he addressed the collapse of civic religion in Britain. “When no one goes to church except because they are looking for Christ, the number of true believers can finally be discovered,” Lewis wrote. “The fog of ‘religion’ has lifted; the positions and numbers of the two armies can be observed; and real shooting is now possible.

In America, cultural Christianity held the line longer than in most wealthy countries. Ross Douthat’s theory is that the backlash against the overt religiosity of the Bush administration 43 finally ushered in the era of the “nuns”. People with no religious affiliation fell from 16% of the population in 2007 to 26% in 2019, even as the percentage of self-identified Christians fell from 78% to 65%.

With this decline comes some blessings. Lewis said it would give Christians greater clarity. Hodge’s analysis shows that it might also inspire them to live their faith more fully.

Imagine a high school student. He goes to church every Sunday because he loves Jesus. He believes with all his heart that premarital sex is a sin and that it is God’s will that he waits for marriage. Now let’s put this young man in two different scenarios.

Scenario 1: Our protagonist is surrounded by classmates who go to church because their parents are dragging them and who agree that premarital sex is bad because it is what was punched in their heads. Many of these classmates are sleeping.

Scenario 2: Our protagonist is surrounded by classmates who think Christianity is cranky and maybe fanatic. The very phrase “sex before marriage” is a joke to them. Anyone who questions the morality of sex outside of marriage is a straight villain. The Handmaid’s Tale. Many of these classmates are also sleeping.

In which of these scenarios is this 18-year-old most likely to succumb to temptation? Obviously the first. In Scenario 1, nothing excludes him from the general public as long as he does not take this matter of religion too seriously. If every “Christian” you know makes fun of his girlfriend, it is natural to conclude that this is acceptable for a Christian.

In scenario 2, there is no question that it is considered normal. He saw Christianity as a subculture, not as the default setting. His celibacy does not make him an object of mockery. This makes it based. By remaining a virgin, he becomes Chad.

Expect to see more teens and young adults like him as cultural trends continue their current trajectory.

Is it really 2022? How did 2021 go so fast? Was it because we had such high expectations and ended up facing one intimidating disaster after another that we didn’t realize that the days had turned into weeks, weeks to months and months. in a whole year?

It was supposed to be the year of salvation, the year we would finally be able to at least take off our masks and breathe. Instead, it became another battle: Another more vicious strain of coronavirus called Delta has ravaged our nations, killing and weakening humans even more ruthlessly than its cousins, destroying families. Then, just as we were starting to believe the pandemic was about to go away, Omicron walked in to roughly remind us that it was far from over.

For all the latest news, follow the Daily Star’s Google News channel.

This is the year of “awareness”: that we have to live with the Covid, for how long, no one knows. Scientists fear that new variants of the virus will emerge from time to time, and the only way to fight them is to update vaccine formulas and keep inoculation rates high.

But as we begin the new year, let’s try to see the positives among the constant barrage of tragedy and chaos. Unsurprisingly, it is the young people who have brought balm to our injured psyche. Nothing could be more exhilarating than the Bangladesh U-19 women’s soccer team winning the 2021 SAFF U-19 Women’s Championship after beating India 1-0. The girl’s euphoria was so infectious that it was hard not to tear each other apart with pride and wonder. Was it heartwarming for you to see twins Mogini, Ana Mogini and Anuching Mogini playing, Ana scoring the winning goal? It proved once again how girls from the most remote, poor and neglected communities can be trained to become the most formidable athletes. This, along with the happy event of the Bangladesh National Women’s Cricket Team qualifying for the ODI Women’s World Cup for the first time, are signs where we should be paying attention: sports facilities and support. for our daughters and women – something that has been largely neglected for decades.

As we talk about getting prizes for great performance, let’s not forget the 16 member girls and boys team that won four gold, two silver and five bronze in the 23rd International Robot Olympiad. It proves that you need to give young people the right opportunities at the right time to achieve exceptional results.

The past year has also shown us how passionate our young people are about protesting injustice. The death of Notre Dame College student Nayeem Hasan who was hit by a Dhaka South City Corporation garbage truck has reignited protests from hundreds of students demanding road safety, victim compensation and proper surveillance the condition of the vehicle. It showed that, despite the brutality and intimidation they faced during the first road safety movement in 2018 (also sparked by the deaths of two students hit by a deadly bus), these young people refused to bow to the law. ‘vehicles stop to check. for valid papers, and demanding something as basic as roads safe from reckless drivers, who think nothing of destroying human life and rushing off.

Young people around the world are joining the movement for change, whether it is Greta Thunberg of Sweden who continues to berate governments for their incompetence and lack of sincerity in tackling climate change, or Malala of Pakistan who has taken shot in the head for defending the education of girls banned by the Taliban, or the thousands of young men and women who flock to the streets to protest against police brutality and blatant racial discrimination against blacks or people of color , or the students of the University of Dhaka protesting against the torture and murder of a comrade by a sadistic husband. Young people are tired of the helplessness of grizzled leaders who talk incessantly and continue to fail to lead, protect or feed them and their planet. Their outrage is contagious and has connected millions of their comrades across the world, and now, collectively, they are a force to be reckoned with.

In the Orwellian systems that seem to spread throughout the world, where the innocent continues to be denied justice, silenced for even asking for it; where the slightest dissent can be fiercely muzzled and the tentacles of corruption stretch far, it is the young who have the temerity to throw their fists in the air in protest or victory. It is their courage, their resilience, their solidarity, the clear perception of what is right and wrong, the ability to be creative in the most difficult circumstances and the spirit of innovation that emerges with each crisis as well as ‘with every technological revolution – these are all which we must embrace, encourage and support with sincerity and love. The year 2021 has given us ample proof that pandemics, climate change and the lust for power will continue to threaten our very existence. As we move into 2022, let us have confidence that our young people will find ways to reverse this doomsday trajectory and find the antidote for a toxic and dystopian future.

New York magazine uses her cover photo to celebrate a woman who cut her breasts and had a tube of flesh surgically added from her leg to her groin.

The article by author Gabriel Mac is titled: “My Penis, Myself; I didn’t need a penis to be a man. But I needed one to be me.

The posting is a visceral, anti-feminine rejection of women and their bodies, says a barrage of comments from stunned women.

“Most of us have had body dysmorphia and a traumatic sexual experience and we are now seeing an abandonment of femininity celebrated as the solution” tweeted Sall Grover, CEO of a women’s social media company. “It’s too sad to understand,” she tweeted.

“It’s not true that you can change your gender – it’s just not true,” said Natasha Chart, professional counselor for nonprofit groups. So surgery and the burden of long-term health care cannot be a solution to the unfair civic and gender pressures that lead so many young people to try to change their sex with knives, she said.

“What’s nice to say is ‘I see you are struggling, I don’t think it will help you cut any parts of the body,’” Chart told Breitbart News.

Comments on Twitter echoed this combination of pity and sympathy for the surgically altered woman:

“It’s horrible” noted a tweet from @RecklessGoddess. “As a teenager I felt that my own body was a danger to me and I wanted to escape it, but thank goodness being slaughtered like that was not an option in the 80s. I have want to escape femininity, but THAT is not the answer.

“It’s not a cure, it’s a symptom” tweeted @ KodaScott1. “All I see in this story is a woman’s dark and desperate solution, or the reflection / staging of how much women are hated, and the appalling effects of male violence on the psyche.

“It’s not even the actual surrender,” of femininity, @Bornnotwork said. “This is the celebration of it.”

Social conservatives are also appalled by the magazine’s celebration of self-harm. Rod Dreher at The American Conservative wrote:

It is important to understand that Gabriel Mac (i.e. a person like her) is a hero of the cultural left of our country, who, having taken control of the institutions of American society – including, like you Read it on this blog, the The US Army – Strives to Force All of America to accept that Gabriel Mac, a mentally ill, phallus-obsessed woman who now has both a Frankenpenis and a vagina , is, in fact, a man.

We are crazy. We are decadent. And we are going to fall hard.

You might want to believe that you can get away with ignoring this phenomenon, attributing it to the cultural fringes. You cannot be more wrong. The ideology that celebrates what Gabriel Mac has done to himself is normative among America’s elites, and that means it controls the future of our society. This ideology comes for you and your children. You better wake up now.

Mac, the author, has a tortured story that ties in with his journalistic coverage of war-torn countries.

In the New York magazine article, Mac tried to explain her radical, life-changing surgery:

If there was anything I had learned during the transition, it was that what was right for me was rarely what, according to my patriarchal, heterosexist, racist, capitalist acculturation, “made sense” – this who, obviously, could only be to live as a sexually available cute-lady ship capable of carrying white babies. It’s impossible to articulate and maybe even know exactly why my vagina is such an integral part of my power and my personality. “I can’t wait to be more masculine so that I can be more feminine,” I wrote in newspapers when I started the transition and realized, although I didn’t quite understand why, that it was what I needed.

The driving force behind the transgender trend is the unfair treatment of women and the increasingly toxic pressure of online pornography and social media on young women, said Chart, a left-wing feminist.

People need to solve civic and personal issues without resorting to quick pseudo-cures, she said. For example, people recognize that miracle cures cannot solve their desire to eat a lot and stay slim, she said:

Everyone knows how to be healthy. They know you can’t overeat. You need to exercise more. Everyone knows it. But what people want is some kind of pill that they can take so they don’t have to do this work of control and exercise. We want the easy way. Everyone wants this. There is nothing to be ashamed of. But you have to struggle with [reality] and seek out what is productive.

The message to young women facing sexual and gender pressures, she said, should be understanding and support, not surgical rejection of their gender: “Look, I know you struggle with life, I can tell. But this [sex change option] this is not true. “

Continuation of the graphic:

Up to [sympathetic] people can really struggle with that [message], there is no solution because they will continue to struggle to want to be nice and not realize that … accept this untruth [of sex change by hormones and sex change] means telling young women in difficulty that they need to go for a breast cut, it means telling young men in difficulty that castration is probably a better option.

The civic problem is compounded by progressive men who are eager to play down their gender-biased rejection of women, she said. “Progressive men believe they are not sexist, never … so, therefore, they don’t have to listen to women … women don’t have the power to speak out against this within of the progressive movement, ”she said.

Leon Weiler, from Cambridge, MA, holds a flag as he stands with other transgender rights protesters beside the “Free Speech Bus,” painted with the words “boys are boys” and ” girls are girls, “in Cambridge’s Harvard Square neighborhood on Thursday, March 30, 2017. (AP Photo / Steven Senne)

“They are following a dangerous path where all these people whom they have applauded in the [transgender] clinic – and their parents – will come to them someday, ”she said.

Less than one percent of people describe themselves as transgender, and less than ten percent have cosmetic surgery on their genitals.

The transgender movement is diverse, with competing goals and priorities.

The movement includes the masculine autogynephilic men who demand sex with lesbians, apolitical people who try to live as idealized stereotypes of the opposite sex, and prepubescent children with childish views of sexuality.

It includes troubled young men who imagine themselves to be light morals, lesbian women trying to become men, troubled teenage girls trying to escape a toxic sexual atmosphere, gay teens who are pushed into an attempt at sex. transgender identity and young people trying to “”of transition“Back to their gender.

It includes feminists who wish to blur the lines between the two sexes, as well as people who enhance the distinctions between the two complementary sexes.

The transgender environment also includes revenue-seeking pharmaceutical companies and medical service providers, wealthy donors, ambitious politicians and professional advocates. It also includes sexual liberators and many progressives who are eager to liberate people from their bodies, as well as parents which are eager Where willing at endorse transgender claims.

Yoseline Hoffman: The transformation of Mexican influencer “YosStop”: feminist videos in exchange for freedom | United States https://korsanizle.com/yoseline-hoffman-the-transformation-of-mexican-influencer-yosstop-feminist-videos-in-exchange-for-freedom-united-states/ Wed, 22 Dec 2021 12:19:00 +0000 https://korsanizle.com/yoseline-hoffman-the-transformation-of-mexican-influencer-yosstop-feminist-videos-in-exchange-for-freedom-united-states/ Yoseline Hoffman, a Mexican social media influencer better known as YosStop who has several million YouTube subscribers, posted her first video on the feminist struggle on Tuesday after spending five months in jail for publicizing the gang rape of a 16-year-old girl in 2018, whom the influencer described as “a slut” and “a prostitute” who […]]]>

Yoseline Hoffman, a Mexican social media influencer better known as YosStop who has several million YouTube subscribers, posted her first video on the feminist struggle on Tuesday after spending five months in jail for publicizing the gang rape of a 16-year-old girl in 2018, whom the influencer described as “a slut” and “a prostitute” who deserved what she got.

A judge released Hoffman on November 30 after reclassifying his crime of discrimination rather than child pornography. As part of a deal with victim Ainara Suárez, Hoffman is to pay damages, issue a public apology, and post a video each month sharing what she’s learned from her classes on feminism and the gender perspective.

In her first video, titled “History of Discrimination Against Women,” Hoffman, 30, explains that there is still a lot of work to be done before women get the same rights as men. “These are rights that we had to win little by little through the struggle, rights that have never been denied to men for the simple fact of being men, and this fight against this balance continues, the problem is not yet resolved, ”she said. said.

In just over eight minutes, Hoffman reviews the major milestones of the feminist movement, though she never calls it that, instead using the phrases “tackling discrimination against women” or “empowering women.”

Sitting on a sofa at home surrounded by her dogs, the social media influencer discusses gender inequalities since pre-Hispanic times, ending with recent advances in reproductive rights. “This history lesson is just a small glimpse of a deep problem that is still there, a problem that is still experienced by many women in our country, in other countries and around the world”, she adds.

The video is part of a reparations program imposed by Mexico City prosecutors. Hoffman also issued a public apology on December 3. “I offer my sincere apologies, Ainara. To my followers, I say: ‘Plugs, I messed up; I was seriously wrong, I injured and attacked Ainara without any rights, ”she posted on the same YouTube channel where, months earlier, she had insulted Suárez.

As part of the deal, over the next three years, Hoffman is expected to attend a monthly one-hour session to learn more about discrimination against women and gender-based violence. In addition to posting videos on what she learned, she must also donate 5% of her monthly earnings to feminist groups.

Hoffman was arrested in June for child pornography for having received, stored, reproduced and made public a video illustrating the rape of a minor. She was held for five months in pre-trial detention at the Santa Martha Acatitla Penitentiary. As a result of the agreement with Suárez’s lawyers, the crime was reclassified as discrimination, which does not carry a prison sentence, and Hoffman was released.

Suárez’s nightmare dates back to May 25, 2018. In an interview with EL PAÍS shortly after the complaint was filed, the young woman recounted that four men had inserted a bottle of champagne into her vagina during a party that evening- the. They recorded their actions and sent the video to their friends and posted it on social media. The case became even more controversial when YosStop discussed the recording and insulted the victim during a video released to his millions of followers. The scene of a naked minor assaulted by several men quickly circulated via pornographic sites.

From that moment on, a harassment campaign was launched against the victim. Speaking to friends and via social media, the men involved in the video claimed that Suárez agreed to participate in the sex act in exchange for cigarettes. Suárez said she had to face death threats, insults and taunts, which she included in her complaint. She was also beaten once by a group of young women in a park in the south of the city. Dozens of people filmed the assault and the footage went viral.
