Here’s the triggering article from the LA Times.
Any article of popcult-moaning regarding the lout, without at least pulling a few examples of acceptable contemporary femininity, like, say, that appalling creature Snooki from the Jersey Shore who is so Ms Everywhere on the Scanalyzer that even I, who would rather get a day’s worth of dental work than watch Jersey Shore, cannot avoid her, is missing a point. One point among many.
As humans continue the ongoing experiment of self domesticating themselves,
an experiment that degrades the human experience from birth by pressuring women to participate in da inhumane folly of unnecessarily invasive first world childbearing practices, kicks it up a notch with virtually no support for breastfeeding, kicks it up a notch with our ludicrous notions that we can protect our children from all harm by caging them (while saying on dog rearing websites that puppies raised in a cage are not capable of being properly socialized if you cage them longer than 16 weeks, HELLO does anybody see two points with a connecting line here? apparently not) and driving them everywhere, kicks it up a notch by parking the kids in front of a television from the minute they’ll sit still for it until the minute they find better things to do, kicks it up a notch by giving them inane and useless and actively degrading and mean-to-active-children schooling, kicks it up a notch by publicly rewarding assholes, goofs, drama queens of every gender, phat beat whiners and dictators, kicks it up by actively mocking those enjoy solving problems instead of making them, kicks it up a notch by providing actively anti-social activities…. like Xbox computer games and porn for boys, and computer games on facebook and reality tv for girls…..
we’re getting the kids we’ve bred. If they behave badly, it’s because they were trained to, and not punished for being rude and rewarded for being polite. It’s that simple. We are the subjects and objects of an experiment, and the experiment is COMING WRONG.
If you have kids, raise them properly – teach them that life is a story; it has a beginning/middle/end. Even if the story is sad or hard, it’s a better story if you have manners, and hang around with other people with manners, who love you and who are lovable. If you can’t do that, DON’T FUCKING WELL HAVE CHILDREN. And certainly don’t expect this violent, mercenary and child unfriendly culture to do the heavy lifting for you if you do.
There are thousands of sex-trafficking victims in Canada. They are forced migrants, aboriginal children and runaways of every description. Anybody who thinks Canada is a child friendly place has only to look at our ability to convict child-sex traffickers and the truth of the lout is revealed.
Why would a lout want the trouble of a real woman when for a bit of cash he can have a 16 year hot Asian chick being pimped out of a massage parlour across from Metrotown?
It’s always the unspoken assumptions that trouble me.
I briefly mentioned porn. I know men who have destroyed their ability to relate appropriately to women (as in, have normative heterosexual intercourse…) because of porn. They retreat into loutish behaviour because they know things are not going to come right in the bedroom.
I also meant to mention that over the last 50 years, an increasing amount of troubling chemicals have wound their way into our lives and hormone balances. There are wholesale behavioral shifts in human activities, sexual expression and gender identification which I think are bigger than what would be caused by talking about things on the daytime agony columns like Oprah or Jerry Springer. There’s something much more basic going on in my view, and I’ll be talking about that more in later posts.
