A remarkable uproar has been inspired by a radical feminist’s opposition to heterosexual intercourse, which she terms “PIV” (penis in vagina) and denounces as always rape:
First, well intercourse is NEVER sex for women. Only men experience rape as sexual and define it as such. Sex for men is the unilateral penetration of their penis into a woman (or anything else replacing and symbolising the female orifice) whether she thinks she wants it or not — which is the definition of rape: that he will to do it anyway and that he uses her and treats her as a receptacle, in all circumstances — it makes no difference to him experiencing it as sexual. That is, at the very least, men use women as useful objects and instruments for penetration, and women are dehumanised by this act. It is an act of violence.
As FCM pointed out some time ago, intercourse is inherently harmful to women and intentionally so, because it causes pregnancy in women. . . .
Men, by whom we are possessed, colonised and held captive, are the sole agents and organisers of PIV. Men dominate us precisely so we can’t opt out of sexual abuse by them; intercourse is the very means through which men subordinate us, the very purpose of their domination, to control human reproduction.
McCain has much more on the woman who penned these ramblings. It seems she had some bad relationships and she has learned to hate all men, and to hate normal sexual behavior. I can understand allowing pain to change your mindset, and I can understand how emotional pain can make you reluctant to trust, or open up, but that is not what this woman has done. She has gone off the deep end and is sinking fast into a pit of self-pity and hatred. That is, of course, assuming her tales of “rape” are even true. We all know those on the Far Left see nothing wrong with wholesale lying, and fabricating outrages. They really fancy their role as victims. But, either way, she is crazy. And, she is not alone as Stacy McCain documents
this is what our oppression consists of and what it is. men get to name it (sex, fucking, knocked up, mother, father) men get to execute it (intercourse, impregnation) and men get to enforce it (rape, heteronormativity, marriage, and legal remedies and lack thereof for sexual and reproductive offenses). note that i am considering rape to be the violent enforcement by men of womens sex role as fuckholes and breeders.
Well, OK, then. Notice the sequence “rape, heteronormativity, marriage” that radical feminism views as equally forms of oppression, assigning women to a “sex role as fuckholes and breeders.” This particular blog, by the way, has an entire category about “PIV” (penis-in-vagina) which is what “heteronormativity” is all about, eh?
By the time a feminist reaches the radical point at which normal sexual intercourse is regarded as inherently oppressive, she has already marched a good distance down the Crazyville Road. Sane, normal people become the Enemy and, in order to maintain her delusions, the feminist seeks out the company of her fellow radicals, who share and confirm these extreme beliefs. The maladjusted thereby exile themselves to a sort of voluntary asylum, where they only encounter lunatics like themselves.
The saddest part of this, to me anyway, is how the Left always gravitates towards this type of insanity. It is that negativity and need to be a victim that seems to dominate so much of leftist thinking. Whether it is race, gender, sexuality, the environment, guns, whatever, those on the Left always sell out to craziness.
Oh no! That rascally South Carolina Governor, Nikki Haley, who dares to be a Conservative even though she is both a woman and a minority got a VERY politically incorrect Christmas gift. What will Liberals on Twitter do? Embrace Haley, and actually be tolerant? Or launch violent, hateful tweets at the governor?
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley received a brand new Beretta PX4 Storm pistol for Christmas. While she was extremely happy with the gift, liberals predictably responded with hateful messages, including wishes she would kill herself with it, Twitchyreported Friday.
“Our family had a wonderful Christmas together! I must have been good Santa gave me a Beretta PX4 Storm,” shetweeted.
“Please God, use it on yourself. Like before New Years,” one person said in response.
“I hope you don’t accidentally shoot someone in your family with it. Actually, I don’t really care either way,” another person said.
Yet another person falsely claimed Haley was somehow promoting murder by posting a picture of the pistol.
“I know where she should stick it,” one person exclaimed.
Some refused to understand why Haley would want or need a gun.
“No clue as to why our governor needs a handgun,” tweeted “Katie Thompson.”
Setting aside for a moment the fact that the Constitution allows for the private ownership of guns, Haley was the target of a parent volunteer who was arrested earlier in December for threatening to kill the Republican governor.
Simply put, they are trying to make you afraid of guns. Saying gun violence over and over and over puts the notion into people’s heads that ALL violence is committed by bad guys with guns. In truth gun control laws are not, and never have been successful in curbing violence. In fact, the gun “control” movement is about control, of you. In fact, Liberals pushing for gun control also lie when they spout their “gun deaths” propaganda. In those numbers, they include criminals killed by police officers, concealed license holders, and by Americans who kill home invaders in self-defense.
If you are an advocate for gun control ask yourself why you should believe people who must lie, and lie deliberately to further their cause. Also look at what banning guns does to violent crime rates vs allowing people to own and in many states carry guns Gun control proponents love to point to the UK and say “see, their gun violence rate is so low. We should follow their example”. Yet, the truth is that disarming the people does not lower violent crime rates. Do not believe the lies folks.
Yes, I have been absent the last two days. No, I was not abducted by a gang of hot women, although I could go for that. I have had some family business to tend to, and deal with the past couple of days, but, hopefully that is behind me now, so here I am raring to give Liberals all the heck I can. Given that Liberals hate guns, I figured I would pose a question that will bug Liberals and, at the same time, possibly give me an answer to a burning question.
That question is what will my next gun be? I do not own a 9mm at the moment, I own a .357 Sig (Smith and Wesson) a sub compact .40 S&W (Taurus) and two .45’s a Colt 1911, and my newest gun, a Sig P250 compact. So, I am looking for a 9mm with a “high capacity magazine”, a meaningless term the Left throws around to scare ignorant people. Of course, the Left has deemed that we only need seven bullets, no more, and anything with a bigger magazine is therefore an evil “high capacity magazine”. Of course, in a few years, they will decide that seven bullets is too many, and they will seek to redefine their own definition of “high capacity magazine”, that is how the Left operates. But, I have narrowed my choices down to four options.
A Taurus PT 24/7 G2 9mm with a 3.5 inch barrel, and a 17 round mag, the gun also comes with a 13 round mag.
This is the least expensive of my choices, which is a plus, and I really like the two Taurus guns I own. It feels great in my hand, and I like the looks of it, the weak point is the sights, it does not have a 3 dot sight, which I really prefer.
Next is a Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm with a 4.25 inch barrel, 3 dot sights, and three 17-round mags. I like the feel of the gun, the sights are very good, but it might be a hair big for carry.
Then there is the one I am leaning towards right now. The Springfield XDM 9mm, with a 3.8 inch barrel, and two mags, a 19 round, and a 13 round. Love the feel of this gun, love the look, love the sights.
Then there is the Sig P250 9mm, with a 15-round magazine. I have written about how much I love my .45 P250, so I know the feel, and accuracy will be second to none. The only drawback? It only comes with one magazine, and Sig mags are not cheap.
Then there is this one, which is out of my price range. A Sig Sauer P226 tactical operations, complete with 4 20-round mags. It is only about 1,300 bucks though. I could get a P226 MK25, which is the sidearm SEALs carry for about $1,150, but, I just cannot afford right now, but one day I will splurge and get possibly the best handgun ever made
So, any thoughts? Anyone own any of these? Anyone have some advice?
I overslept this morning, but woke up in time to get to the range by 11:30. I usually prefer arriving early, they open at 11:00. I just like it better when I am the only one shooting or one of just a few. There was only two other guys there, so I had the place nearly to myself. This was my third trip since buying my new Sig P250 c .45 and I focused mostly on quicker firing today. Getting the gun up, sighted, and firing on target was my aim, and I was interested in how a less deliberate pace would affect my accuracy. I shot at various ranges 7-11 yards, and increased my rate of fire as I went, with my last two magazines used up as quickly as I could pull the trigger. The results?
100 rounds fired, with 98 shots in the 8,9,10 circles, both of those in the 7 circle happened while shooting my first magazine. Of the 98 in the 8-10 circles, 75 were in the 9-10. So, my accuracy was actually a bit above usual. After sweeping up, I cannot believe everyone does NOT sweep up their brass, I went into the shop and purchased a new gun case, and a box of Federal Personal Defense bullets, and chatted with the owner a bit, as usual. Today I told him about a co-worker who I had heard bashing gun owners because “they never trained, or became effective with our guns”. I was amused last week when this same fellow asked me what I did on days off. When I told him Friday’s generally mean a trip to the range, he looked put off, asking me what I got out of shooting. I told him that I do enjoy shooting, but that a large part of visiting the range is to become as proficient with my guns as possible, just in case. This made him look even more put off.
Funny how Liberals think isn’t it? First they rail about how gun owners ought to practice but then criticize us when we DO invest time and effort into training.
Anyway, after that I went home, cleaned my gun, the take down on a Sig is super simple, and so is reassembling it, so cleaning is pretty easy. Those folks at Sig really do make great guns, which brings me back to my original point, which is sometimes you DO get what you pay for. My Taurus PT 140 .40 S&W is a fine gun, I have put well over 2,000 rounds through it with no problems, but after just 300 rounds with my Sig, I am already far more accurate and consistent with it. Yes, the Sig is more money than a Taurus, and I have one of the least expensive Sig Sauers, but the Sig is a superior gun, better sights, better ergonomics, super simple maintenance. I would never tell anyone what type of gun to buy, but, I will remind y’all that I have named Sig Sauer the OFFICIAL gun maker of this blog, so………….
Just one question about this tragedy. Why are we not hearing this message from Liberals?
Paul Walker would still be alive, were it not for the easy availability of super fast cars. Yes, the Porsche that Walker and his friend died in was very expensive, but any car can go fast enough to kill can’t it? Does anyone really need a car that goes over, say 55? No one needs a car that is that fast. Isn’t it time we demand action by the car makers? No car with a high-capacity engine should be allowed. Isn’t it time that Congress enact common sense car laws? Lower speed limits might have saved the lives of those two men, and if it saves just one life.
I am calling for Congress to pass the Paul Walker Law. It would restrict every car to no more than 55 mph. It would also mandate ban possession of any “assault vehicle” capable of more than a top speed of 55 mph. Anyone owning one of these weapons of mass destruction would have 90 days to turn in their vehicle, or face prosecution. They would be compensated with a voucher for a government-approved vehicle, complete with a Hope and Change bumper sticker or a lifetime pass on public transportation.
The bill would also set aside $600,000,000 (or more) for the development of a website, TradeYourCar.gov that would allow people to “easily” see their choices for their new government approved cars. The website will be developed by the Obama administration to ensure a rapid, and efficient car exchange experience.
BLS being my newest Liberal Malady Bitter lesbian Syndrome
A New Jersey waitress who claimed that a family left her an anti-gay message instead of a tip was faking the whole thing, according to the accused family.
Dayna Morales, a lesbian former Marine who works at Gallop Asian Bistro in Branchburg, said that she was given no tip on a $93.55 dinner bill for a family of four — a husband, wife and their two children.
To make matters worse, Morales claimed that she received a homophobic message that read “I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle.”
“I am THOROUGHLY offended mad pissed off and hurt that THIS is what her kids will grow up learning and that I served in the Marines to keep ignorant people like them free,” wrote Morales in an email to Have a Gay Day, a gay advocacy non-profit.
“Keep your damn mouth shut and pray we never cross paths again,” continued Morales.
Seems like an outrageous thing for anyone to do right? Screwing over a server, and leaving an nasty message at the same time. But, we know Liberals will invent their own realities, and their own victim hood don’t we?
But the accused family claims that Morales is lying. They contacted NBC 4 New York on their own accord and provided documents to prove that they left Morales a generous tip, minus the nasty message.
The couple, who wanted to remain anonymous, provided NBC 4 New York a copy of their Visa bill as well as their copy of the restaurant receipt to show that they left an $18 tip on the $93.55 tab — or just shy of 20 percent.
As further proof, the time stamp on the receipt provided by the couple also matches that of the one Morales posted on Facebook. The wife also noted that she is left-handed and that the slash mark on the tip line seems to have been written by someone who is right-handed.
UH-OH! The waitress received thousands in donations after her story went viral, maybe this was all about scamming for money? Or maybe it is the dreaded BLS striking.
Liberals have no problem with being outraged over certain things, like the influence of big money in politics, unless of course that big money comes from a George Soros. In short, their outrage is only displayed when it is convenient. Lisa Graves is a great example of the two-faced nature of Liberals. Stacy McCain sums her up pretty well
Lisa Graves is a Democrat Party hack who apparently believes it should be illegal to be a conservative, and who thinks that cooperation between conservatives is therefore a criminal conspiracy. Graves used to work for Democrat Sen. Patrick Leahy and the ACLU, but since 2009 has worked for the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD), a left-wing Wisconsin outfit whose funders include George Soros:
The website http://www.Banksterusa.org, for example, claims it wants “to be your go-to site for updates on the financial services re-regulation fight in Congress and for progressive net-roots campaigning against the big boys on Wall Street.” . . .
BanksterUSA.org is “part of the Center for Media and Democracy,” funded to the tune of $200,000 by the Open Society Institute, the charity arm of lefty investor George Soros.
In short big money is bad if it benefits Republicans, but good if it benefits Communists, or political prostitutes like Lisa Graves. McCain goes on to expose the hypocrisy of Graves
While taking money from Soros — a billionaire international financier — Graves and the CMD claim that money is a corrupting influence in politics if that money goes to conservatives: The Wisconsin Club for Growth is “at the center of a tangled web of dark money“!
This bizarre paranoid nonsense is all part of a dishonest smear against supporters of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who defeated a well-funded recall attempt by Democrats and their Big Labor allies in 2012.
In short, these goons see Walker as a credible threat to win in 2016, so they are launching preemptive strikes against him. I hope the GOP establishment takes note of my first rule of winning elections. Democrats ALWAYS attack candidates they fear, even if they are just likely candidates. Note, the Left never attacked McCain in 2008, or Romney in 2012 because they WANTED to run against them. After these men won the GOP nominations, THEN the attacks came.
Ah those special fools, here they go again, seeking peace at any price. Deluding themselves into trusting evil people with evil intentions, to be honest and above-board. Here they go again with their clueless “if we are nice to them…..” strategy. Ed already blogged about this but I wanted to add my two cents worth. I remember watching Liberals in the mid 1970’s as they called for peace with the Soviets. We should cut our military, so as not to frighten the Soviets they opined. We must show them we mean them no harm they said. Even as a child, I was aghast that they did not see that the Soviet Union, and in fact all Communists were bad, very bad, and meant us no good will. I never grasped how anyone could look at a country that was our sworn enemy, a country that had enslaved other countries and committed horrific atrocities, and even consider bowing to them. Years later I still am amazed at the depth of the stupidity of the Left. These are folks who would not only buy ocean front property in Arizona, but demand to pay twice the asking price. The Other McCain has some thoughts
We need not know anything about the details of this “historic deal” to know that it is absolutely worthless. The Islamic Republic of Iran has no respect for law, and cannot be expected to honor any promise it makes, except for its long-avowed purpose to annihilate Israel, to destroy “the Great Satan” and otherwise to carry out its violent worldwide revolutionary jihad against the West.
All the Iranian dictatorship seeks to accomplish by negotiation with the West is to anesthetize its enemies, to render opposition impotent by means of treaties that will postpone the inevitable confrontation until Iran has become stronger and we have become weaker.
Any “deal” with Iran is necessarily a bad deal, and the double guarantee of a bad deal is that it was approved by the Obama administration, which is “historic” only as a monument to incompetence with few parallels in human experience.
“The practical way of looking at things . . . may serve well enough in ordinary, normal times. But our times are not ‘normal’ in the good old Victorian sense, and never will be again. . . . These men, even Halifax, were essentially middle-class, not aristocrats. They did not have the hereditary sense of the security of the state, unlike Churchill, Eden, the Cecils. Nor did they have the toughness of the 18th-century aristocracy. They came at the end of the ascendancy of the Victorian middle-class, deeply affected as that was by high-mindedness and humbug. They all talked, in one form or another, the language of disingenuousness and cant: it was second nature to them — so different from Churchill. . . . It meant that they failed to see what was true, until too late, when it was simply a question of survival.”
– A.L. Rowse, Appeasement: A Study in Political Decline, 1933-39
Maybe it is because the Left denies the existence of evil that they cannot recognize its presence, even when it is so blatant as to be unmistakable.
Do Liberals ever tire of bashing the South? Of course not, after all, the South IS the most Conservative part of the country, and the most patriotic. And the Left will never forgive the South for taking a stand against a power hungry federal government. McCain has the scoop
[T]he South is once again committed to taking a backward path. By refusing to expand health care for the working poor through Medicaid, which is paid for by the federal government under Obamacare, most of the old Confederacy is committed to keeping millions of its own fellow citizens in poverty and poor health. They are dooming themselves, further, as the Left-Behind States.
Just another historical illiterate who thinks Washington has a grove of money trees or something. McCain eviscerates this tool
Do you believe this? “Free” money from the federal government? Medicaid as a job-creation dynamo? While I have not bothered to dig down on the data here, the basic economics of it is like saying that if you take $5 out of your pants pocket and put it in your coat pocket, you will then have $10. Government has no money of its own to spend. Every cent expended by government must come either from tax revenue or from borrowing, and borrowing — i.e., deficit spending — is ultimately a drag on economic growth, because capital invested in government bonds (which is how deficit spending is financed) is capital not invested in private-sector businesses.
The liberal belief in “free government money” is like one of those quasi-religious magical thinking exercises that Ace discusses here.
To cite X-number of people signing up for “expanded Medicaid” as “success” is simply to say that if you’re giving away the taxpayers’ money, moochers will gladly take their share of the loot.
Is the South doomed to be the “Left-Behind States”? Next time you hear of someone moving from Texas to Detroit, let me know.
I am one who believes that history, actual history, as it happened is not taught in our schools. I also believe that not enough attention is given to the founding of the nation. I also believe, and have for years, that the goal of government schools is not so much education as indoctrination. Moonbattery has another example that shows me, to be correct
Liberals like the idea of a “living Constitution” — that is, a Constitution that says whatever they want it to say at the moment. Here is what the Second Amendment says:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Here is what advocates of statist tyranny want it to say:
Horrifyingly, the falsified version above was taken from United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examination. From Amazon:
This text is designed for a one-semester or one-year United States history course for students preparing to take the AP U.S. History Exam. Teachers can assign the book as the course textbook or as a supplement to a college-level textbook.
Looking over the picture, I saw the butchering of the First Amendment too, adding the “separation of church and state” which is NOT in the Bill of Rights. God only knows how many other falsehoods are in that book.
Just another reason to either home school your kids, or to at least talk to your kids about history. As much as we tout education in America, we forget that the goal of education should be to impart knowledge, not propaganda.
A proposed amendment to the state’s Republican Party bylaws would allow the removal of the Alabama College Republicans chairwoman, who spoke out in favor of same-sex marriage in June, from the party’s steering committee.
Following the Supreme Court ruling against the Defense of Marriage Act in June, chairwoman and University of Alabama student Stephanie Petelos spoke to AL.com about the generational divide between party leadership and young conservatives on the issue.
She told Buzzfeed the comments reportedly infuriated party leaders, who began attempting then to remove her from the steering committee.
Good Grief! This is the kind of thing that always bugs me. we are not Liberals, we ought to be able to have a difference of opinion on such an issue. As Stephen Green points out this will not help get the youth vote
Sure, the state party can make its own rules and bylaws. That’s its job, after all. But to change those bylaws to target one person for making a personal statement which is pretty much the freakin’ norm for college kids?
And, by Liberals I of course include the media. When George W. Bush was president, deficits mattered, and to be fair there was too much spending under W, but since Obama
assumed his throne, I mean was elected President, Liberals have a fever. A fever which only can be cured by more spending apparently. Deficits? Find a Liberal that takes them seriously, no matter how massive those deficits are
Via CNS News:
The Congressional Budget Office last week released updated historical budget data for the federal government, reporting a deficit of $1.087 trillion in fiscal 2012.
2012 marked the fourth straight year—and the only four years in the history of the nation–when the federal government’s deficit topped $1 trillion.
Last year’s $1.087 trillion deficit was even greater in inflation-adjusted dollars than the peak World War II deficit of fiscal 1943—which was $54.554 billion in 1943 dollars and $723.8714 billion in 2012 dollars, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics online inflation calculator.
Nancy Pelosi scolding other Liberals? Actually holding them to some type of standards.
Yep, you read it right, of course, as RS McCain points out, the mayor’s heart is in the right place, and his hands? Well, let’s just say the ladies better watch out for Mr. Happy Hands, and his tongue too
I’d call this assault.
A city councilwoman and two lawyers, formerly allies of the mayor, held a press conference to air the charges lodged against Mayor Filner by a variety of women.
Former ally Briggs wrote that he must now turn on Filner, because his behavior is no mere slip-up or minor transgression, but consists of “hard core” violations.
In the Mayor’s office, there was something known as the “Filner headlock” where the Mayor puts his arm around a woman’s shoulder, pulls her in tight, gets in close to their face, asks about husband/boyfriend, says things like “you know you love me, lets go up to my office, no one will know.”Donna Frye described other specifics about a victim: “He grabbed her, kissed her, jamming his tongue down her throat.” Frye went on to describe another encounter: “The Mayor quickly had his hand down the inside of her bra.”
“I am the Mayor you can’t kick me out of any office” one employee of Filner allegedly said after she kicked him out of her office for his unwanted advances.
The allies-turned-accusers are trying to get the lecherous old monster to step down without having the women to come forward and make the allegations themselves. Of course, that won’t happen; he’s a Democrat, and a union stooge to boot. So we’re talking about the sort of retrograde, cynical, old-time machine politics mentality here where everything is fair game for your tribe that we usually don’t see nowadays, at least not outside the national government.
Double standards my friends double standards. Feminists rail against Republicans for being pro-life, but look the other way when a Democrat assaults women and treats them like pieces of meat. As I have noted before, this is how Liberals define morality. If you support Liberal ideals, you are moral, and excused from the way you behave, no matter how nasty that may be. If you oppose Liberal ideals on the other hand, you are immoral, period!
According to Live5news.com, 17-year-old Deion Watson and 23-year-old Markel Jovan Wright were about to pull of their third armed robbery in a matter of days, if not for the efforts of one brave, gun carrying citizens.
Wright and Watson had just allegedly robbed their third Kangaroo gas station in South Carolina. To make matters even more dire, the duo fired a parting shot at the clerk this time, grazing his arm.
Hearing the commotion, the private citizen, who was filling his car with gas, grabbed his own gun, and confronted the suspects at gunpoint as they exited the store. Wright fled the scene, but Watson stayed and was captured by police.
Wright was captured shortly thereafter in his hometown. Wright was taken into custody and denied bond due to other pending charges against him. Wright is also charged with stealing $3,000 from an area Wal-Mart where he was briefly employed as well as attempted murder in a February 2012 incident.
Watson was issued a $200,000 bond, which he was unable to post, so he also remains behind bars.
No other details are available on the good samaritan at this time.
This is also a great example of a defensive gun use in which no shots were fired, no one was harmed, and the bad guys ended up in jail. Because no shots were fired, this incident will most likely not be included in statistics regarding guns used in self defense.
Consider that last line again Because no shots were fired, this incident will most likely not be included in statistics regarding guns used in self-defense. People who use “stats” to argue that very few Americans ever use their guns for good ends, like self-defense or to stop crimes, use skewed stats. The vast majority of Americans who use guns in self-defense never fire their weapon, so those numbers are buried, out of sight. Foolish people, and by foolish people I mean David Frum, who eat up the skewed stats that gun control advocates put out, never bother to look behind the numbers to see the real stats. Frum, and his ilk, would prefer to look down their noses at gun owners, and mock those who defend themselves with guns. Frum was doing this for a while on Twitter. Most deplorable was this one
When the news of the school shooting first surfaced, my first reaction was anger. Again? Again?!I ventilated that anger in a bitter Tweet:
Shooting at CT elementary school. Obviously, we need to lower the age limit for concealed carry so toddlers can defend themselves.
14 Dec 12
After that, Frum followed up with more smart-ass tweets mocking the very idea that any American ever used guns in self-defense. I reacted by tweeting story after to story about Americans using guns for self-defense to Frum. Big shock, he never replied, Intellectual cowards like Frum never do. Like most Liberals, or “Moderate Republicans” Frum does not live in the real world, so expecting him to think outside his Beltway Box in unthinkable.
This time it is an imaginary stigma against “touching yourself”. Liberals LOVE to feel oppressed, they love to feel like they are victims, and they love to pretend they are “stigmatized”. Yes, sorry Liberals, but there really is no “stigma” against pleasuring yourself. Most folks do it, even prudes do it. Of course they wear a blindfold so as not to see themselves getting their solo freak on, but, I am pretty sure even they, well you know. I am also pretty sure no one is unaware that most people do it either. The difference is normal folks accept it, without obsessing over it. We really do not care if our neighbor waxes his weasel, or gets it on with Mr. Happy Vibrations, that is their PRIVATE business. Ah, private, that is the key word here. We do not want to share personal tales, and we do not want to hear yours. We do not wish to give out awards for masturbating either. Well, OK, if you do it standing on your head while watching midget porn and wearing a hockey mask, that might make us perk our ears up a bit, but, for the most part, no one cares!
Liberals, of course, do not grasp that other folks might not care. To them, THAT is stigmatizing their solo eroticism. So, they must fight back against the stigmatizing stigmatizers, who are putting stigmas on the poor masturbating Liberals. And, when loony Leftists “fight back” they are very entertaining. Over at Viral Read for example you can learn about Happy, your friendly neighborhood vagina.
Apparently, some women are too stupid to find their own vaginas. (Pro tip: You can Google it.) In order to assist the anatomically ignorant, designer Tina Gong has created “Happy Playtime,” a Web site that features an animated cartoon of the aforesaid ladyparts that women who flunked sixth-grade biology class could not otherwise locate.
Ladies: Is this (a) helpful or (b) vaguely creepy? Dora the Clitoral Explorer? “Happy Playtime”explains:
Getting you to touch yourself since 1989.
Sexuality is one of the most basic instincts of human beings. Being comfortable with your own sexual pleasure is a prerequisite to both being able to healthily accept pleasure from others, and pleasing others. How can you exchange pleasure with someone else if you don’t understand what your own body likes? That’s why masturbation, and learning how to masturbate is such a fundamental life lesson.
Unfortunately for many women, there has been a cultural stigma that blocks access to self-stimulation. HAPPYPLAYTIME is here to eliminate this barrier as much as possible. By talking openly and lightheartedly about female masturbation, we are taking the first step to becoming truly sexually liberated.
You may have thought you were sexually liberated, but you weren’t “truly sexually liberated” because you had never seen a dancing cartoon vagina that you can download on your iPhone (yes, there’s an app for that).
Judging from this “mission” statement, the problem that Tina Gong’s cartoon vagina is supposed to solve is not that women can’t find their genitalia, but the “cultural stigma” that makes them feel bad about … doing whatever it is they do with it, as often as Tina Gong does it, which seems to be pretty much all the time.
So far, reactions to “Happy Playtime” have been unfortunately boring. Daisy Buchanan of the Guardian tediously tells us she was one of the “clueless virgins at my all-girls school” who was ashamed of the lonely things she did to her adolescent self: “Masturbation was my biggest teenage secret. … Now I’m marginally older and wiser, I am proud to out myself as a wanker. Masturbating should not be a source of shame.”
Thanks for sharing too much information, you dirty, dirty girl!
See what I mean, this is not about fighting stigmas at all. This is really about Leftists saying “look at me”. I am naughty, look at me damn you, LOOK AT ME! Well, sorry, but we do not really want to look at you, especially with your pants off. Again, that is PRIVATE, keep it to yourself, and if you must divulge your self-love do not expect everyone to want to give you a standing ovation, because most of us accept that as a private thing. In other words, excuse us if we do not want a detailed account of your self-pleasuring expertise. Stacy McCain has some more thoughts, and blames Cosmo for their tired old themes
This has been one of my pet peeves for at least 15 years: Why is it that every single issue of Cosmo has a “how to masturbate” article or a “how to have better orgasms” article or some variation thereof? And why are these magazines in racks at the supermarket checkout line, so that the minute your kids learn to read, they’re confronted with cover-blurb headlines like “Super Sex Secrets to Drive Him Wild”?
Beyond the offensiveness of having this lurid smutty stuff thrust into my daughter’s face — to teach her the “empowering” lesson that the most important thing in life is driving men wild in bed — is the absurd redundancy of it. Stipulate the hypothetical that there are women:
A. Too stupid to figure this out without expert advice;
B. Sufficiently literate to read a magazine article.
Even with those stipulations, do they need to read endless reiterations of the same basic “lesson” — and face it, Cosmo has been recycling the same Drive-Him-Wild sex article since 1973 — every single month?
You don’t have to be a prude to be offended by these monthly magazine sex sermons. You just need the critical thinking capacity to realize that nobody really needs this kind of advice. Human beings were having sex successfully a long time before we had magazine articles by “experts” telling us we weren’t doing it right. (By the way, most sex-advice articles are actually written by underpaid 20-something recent college graduates breaking into the magazine business, who are mainly “experts” at eating Ramen noodles and shopping at thrift stores.)
The whole “Drive Him Wild” approach to the subject is wrongheaded, suggesting that happiness is a matter of technique. Here’s the best advice you’ll ever get, ladies: If you’re not happy with your sex life, you’re not going to find the answer in Cosmo.
Anybody can learn mere technique without benefit of magazine articles, simply by imagination and trial-and-error.
“Does that feel good?”
“Yeah, but maybe try it a little faster.”
“Oh. Oh. Ohhhhhh …”
Seriously, if you don’t know how to have sex without reading Cosmo, you don’t have a sex problem, you have a stupidity problem.
