…But sex positivity now seems to be fading from fashion among younger people, failing to speak to their longings and frustrations just as anti-porn feminism failed to speak to those of an earlier generation.

It’s no longer radical, or even really necessary, to proclaim that women take pleasure in sex.

If anything, taking pleasure in sex seems, to some, vaguely obligatory.

In a July BuzzFeed News article headlined, “These Gen Z Women Think Sex Positivity Is Overrated,” one 23-year-old woman said, “It feels like we were tricked into exploiting ourselves.”

Medical Journal Editor Apologizes for Cover Labeling Women as ‘Bodies With Vaginas’

Medical Journal Editor Apologizes for Cover Labeling Women as ‘Bodies With Vaginas’

Intersectionalism has been shown to be horrible for women. And by “women,” I mean biological females.

The woke left will permit women to be put in harm’s way, or the left will be disrespectful to women, to pander to biological men who say they identify as women.

By Michael Gryboski

The lead editor of the British medical journal The Lancet has issued an apology following outrage over a recent journal cover that labeled women “bodies with vaginas.”

For its Sept. 25 edition, the weekly peer-reviewed journal featured a quote on the front cover from a perspective piece that said, “the anatomy and physiology of bodies with vaginas have been neglected.”

The cover quote garnered outrage from many who, among other objections, viewed the choice of words as erasing women and bowing to transgender ideology.

Washington Post: Why Didn’t Biden Plan to Get Female Activists Out of Afghanistan?

Washington Post: Why Didn’t Biden Plan to Get Female Activists out of Afghanistan?

So, for all the Never Trumpers (which would include former Southern Baptist Beth Moore) and the liberals and leftists who claim to be against sexism, to claim they were repulsed by Trump’s “grab ’em” line, I’d like for you to grapple with Democrat failure of women – this botched withdrawl was carried out under a Democratic Party administration (Joe Biden’s), with the first ever woman Vice President, Kamala Harris.

(Link): Washington Post: Why Didn’t Biden Plan to Get Female Activists out of Afghanistan?

Good question. The need to protect women and children from the depravity of the Taliban’s seventh-century ideology had been one of the driving forces for sustained American engagement in Afghanistan.

That includes Barack Obama as well as the two Republican presidents who bookended his administration.

Now, however, the NGOs and activists encouraged by those policies to work in Afghanistan find themselves stuck in the collapse, the Washington Post reports. It takes quite a few paragraphs to get to the reason why, however:

While the administration in recent weeks has acted to accelerate the processing of SIV applicants and began airlifting applicants and their families out of Afghanistan, it has not done so for others who might be targeted by the Taliban because of their affiliation with international organizations but who are not eligible for the SIV program.

Several people involved in the evacuation effort said they were shocked by the Biden administration’s lack of preparation for the possibility that female activists and other vulnerable Afghans would be at risk and require aid — especially given how central the issue of women’s rights has been to the U.S. project in Afghanistan.

It was an effort cited by successive American presidents as a justification for the U.S. presence. …

Amed Khan, a New York-based philanthropist and human rights advocate who has been working to evacuate at-risk Afghans, said that between the SIV applicants, women’s rights activists and other allies, thousands of people have “risked their lives implementing our agenda for the last 20 years.”

By Nicole Alcindor, CP Contributor

Google Play will no longer carry sugar dating apps widely known for promoting compensated sexual acts that have led to many cases of sex trafficking and sexual assault among young women and underage girls.

The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) had been pressuring Google for over a year to change its Google Play app store policies by removing exploitative sugar dating apps like SeekingArrangement. The app was listed is on NCOSE’s 2021 Dirty Dozen List — an annual campaign list calling out 12 mainstream entities for facilitating or profiting from sexual abuse and exploitation.

‘He Has A Penis!’: Outraged Woman Claims Spa Allowed ‘Naked’ Man in Female Area ‘In Front of Young Girls’  — Because He Identified as a Woman

‘He Has A Penis!’: Outraged Woman Claims Spa Allowed ‘Naked’ Man in Female Area ‘In Front of Young Girls’  — Because He Identified as a Woman

This kind of garbage needs to stop.

A lot of this coddling of biological men who claim to be women has gotten so bad the last few years that it’s encroaching on the safety, rights, and boundaries of biological girls and women.

Also, public nudity in which a person displays his or her genitals is vulgar and inappropriate regardless of how the person identifies.

In a video that’s quickly going viral, an outraged woman confronted an employee behind a counter at a spa and demanded to know why a naked man was allowed to enter a female-only section — in front of young girls.

Instagram user cubanaangel — who claimed the cellphone video is hers — wrote the following caption: “NAKED MAN ALLOWED WOMEN DAY SPA. Los Angeles, California.
Wi Spa allows a man into women’s wet spa section where all the women are naked, mothers with there young daughters and teens.
The Wi Spa allowed the man access just because he calls himself a woman. This man was naked [exposing] his testicles and penis slinging left to right in front of young girls, teens, and grown women. What is our world coming to[?]”

The woman recording the clip let the employee have it.

Abstinence and ‘Purity Culture’ Are Often Conflated but Aren’t The Same, Tim Keller Explains, by B. Showalter

Abstinence and ‘Purity Culture’ Are Often Conflated but Aren’t The Same, Tim Keller Explains 

I’m not totally in agreement on Keller (Link) on everything, but he is correct that too many believers (Link): falsely conflate the concepts of being sexually abstinent outside of marriage with the faults in purity culture and unfortunately ditch the concept altogether.

Yet other Christians (Link): falsely believe and teach that the Bible does not support the practice of remaining a virgin until marriage.

The progressive Christians (and (Link): occasionally, doofus conservatives) try to ease the guilty consciences of fornicators (Link): by downplaying fornication.

(Link): Abstinence and ‘Purity Culture’ Are Often Conflated but Aren’t The Same, Tim Keller Explains 

April 17, 2021

by Brandon Showalter

What’s often referred to as “purity culture” is not the same thing as remaining sexually abstinent outside of marriage, though many conflate the two, according to Tim Keller, founder and former pastor of Redeemer Church in New York City.

Keller explained in a Facebook post that in the early church, the Christian sexual ethic — that “sex was only for within a mutual, whole-self-giving, super-consensual life-long covenant” — was “revolutionary,” given the prevailing Greco-Roman ethic of the day.

The Associated Press Re-Defines the Word ‘Mistress’ Out of Woke Concerns

The Associated Press Re-Defines the Word ‘Mistress’ Out of Woke Concerns

I realize that American  culture has long held double standards regarding sexual behavior, that men are allowed to be slutty, which only enhances their reputations among some, but if a woman is slutty, she gets referring to as a great big whore.

So yes, I am sympathetic to a point with the AP’s rationale behind this – but – I don’t fully support it.

Rather than holding men equally accountable for reprehensible behavior, “woke” moves like this one just seem to be watering down the same egregious behavior when committed by women. I myself don’t approve or EITHER biological sex committing adultery.

(Link): AP defends redefinition of ‘mistress’ following online ridicule, admits ‘alternative terms fall short’

(Link): The word ‘mistress’ is CANCELED: AP Stylebook bans use of the term because it ‘implies the woman is solely responsible for the affair’

(Link):  ‘Mistress’ becomes woke brigade’s latest target

The Associated Press Stylebook, which has traditionally set standards for language usage within the media landscape, mystified Twitter users Tuesday when it tweeted a reality-bending, wrist-slapping admonishment.

“Don’t use the term mistress for a woman who is in a long-term sexual relationship with, and is financially supported by, a man who is married to someone else. Instead, use an alternative like companion, friend or lover on first reference and provide additional details later,” the tweet read.

The Oxymoron of Ethical Porn via End Sexual Exploitation

The Oxymoron of Ethical Porn via End Sexual Exploitation

As much as I criticize conservative Christians and conservative “pro family values” groups on this blog, I have to say I’ve actually seen people who identify as ex-Christian or “progressive” Christians who actually sit around defending porn, and one way they do this is to argue that there is such a thing as “ethically produced” porn, and that “ethically produced” porn is morally acceptable.

As much as conservatives get a few things wrong, the progressives and liberals also get things wrong. This is one of those things.

(Link): The Oxymoron of Ethical Porn via End Sexual Exploitation

Excerpts:

As porn use and production become more rampant than ever, so do the justifications of the exploitative behavior. A new wave of so-called “ethical” porn has emerged to ease the consciences of the porn viewing community. Liz Walker (Link): has written an analysis of the many fallacies this theory poses.

First, there is the question of self-created porn. While this is an increasing trend due to the rise of smartphones, self-creation does not imply consent the way many assume.

Walker first points out that just as in mainstream pornography, the actors may face external pressure to create this content.

Women Being Slut Shamed, Virgin Shamed, or Celibate Shamed at The Doctor’s Office

Women Being Slut Shamed, Virgin Shamed, or Celibate Shamed at The Doctor’s Office

So, I saw a headline go through my Twitter feed a few weeks ago about a woman who says while on a trip to the doctor’s office to get a check up, she was “slut shamed” by a nurse practitioner at that appointment. (The link to that is towards the bottom of this post.)

I don’t doubt her experience, but I chipped in under that Tweet or another related to mention that as a chaste woman – I’m over 45 and still a virgin myself – I had the same exact thing happen to me, but in the reverse, when I was in my mid or late 20s and had to see a doctor to get blood tests done (over a non-sexual related medical issue).

The doctor I saw at my appointment sort of “Virgin-Shamed” me at that time.

We’re all the time hearing about “Slut Shaming” in our culture, but there is far more Celibacy- and Virgin- Shaming taking place than Slut Shaming.

However, I don’t very often see feminists discussing Virgin-Shaming nearly as much.

As a matter of fact, some feminists who are always complaining about “slut shaming” participate in Celibate-Shaming, or Virgin-Shaming (and sadly, other conservatives also participate in virgin shaming or celibate shaming as well, though many conservatives CLAIM to respect sexual abstinence – but they really do not).

The lady doctor I saw when I was in my mid to late 20s said in addition to running the tests I was in to see her for that day (and I don’t recall now what they were, only that the tests were not related to anything of a sexual nature), she also wanted to run sexually transmitted disease tests on my blood samples to make sure I did not have any sexually transmitted diseases.

I laughed and told her that would be a waste of her time and the lab’s time, as I was still a virgin.

Cross-Dressing Four Foot Ten Inch Pervert Disguised Himself As A Granny To Grope Young Women And A Schoolgirl

Cross-Dressing Four Foot Ten Inch Pervert Disguised Himself As A Granny To Grope Young Women And A Schoolgirl

If this took place in the United States, all this perverted sicko (who is a biological man) has to do with American liberals is claim he is “identifying as a woman,” and the liberals would gladly allow him access to women’s / girl’s locker rooms and bathrooms, where he would proceed to sexually abuse actual women and girls.

But since when do most liberals (who claim to be feminist) actually CARE about the safety of girls and women? They do not – they’d rather protect Transgenders and Muslims at the expense of (cis / hetero) girls and women.

Anytime the safety or needs of actual, honest to god women come into conflict with the liberal favored pet groups of Muslims and Transgenders, the liberals always choose their pet group and throw women under the bus…

Some secular liberal feminists (and even some of the religious, progressive Christians) are fine with putting girls and women at risk if it meets the goals of their “progressive” politics.

By Richard Wheatstone

A CROSS-DRESSING pervert who disguised himself as a granny to prey on young women has been caged for three years.

Paul Reed, who is just 4ft 10in, donned a coat, wooly hat and scarf wrapped across his face to take on his ‘old lady’ persona.

The 57-year-old then targeted two young women and a teenager outside transport stations and hospitals.

Reed, from Chatham, Kent, had previously been banned from chatting with females while with females while wearing the disguise after being convicted of sex offences in 2007.

Some Muslims Don’t Know or Care about American Liberal Intersectionalism

Some Muslims Don’t Know or Care about American Liberal Intersectionalism

(this post has been updated below)

I found (Link): this tweet today. It’s from a British paper.

The text above the tweet reads:

“Muslim parents’ protest against school teaching equality lessons on homosexuality grows”

Muslim parents are angry because some school wants to teach “equality for homosexuals” in a school there. The parents say this goes against their Muslim faith.

Here is a quote from that article (link is below):

She [a Muslim mother who has a child at the school in question] told BirminghamLive: ‘It’s inappropriate, totally wrong. Children are being told it’s OK to be gay, yet 98 per cent of children at this school are Muslim. It’s a Muslim community.’
/// end quote ///

The hypocrisy and irony abounds.

Liberals like to (Link): classify their favorite pet groups in a hierarchy of protection, favoritism, and loyalty.

American liberals are obsessed with “intersectionalism,” in which Muslims are, at this point, in the liberal hierarchy, probably the number-one most protected group of theirs, followed by LGBT, then women (with “women of color” taking precedence over white women – liberals claim to be feminist, but they often take every opportunity to revile, scapegoat, demonize, and (Link): encourage hatred of white women).

Any time a Mulism hurts, insults, or murders a homosexual or a woman, American liberals, whether they are Christian progressives or secularists, will never say anything about it.

Response to the Alex Parker Piece ‘Feminist Rages Against GirlPal ‘Galentine’s Day,’ Says No Women Are Lonely, Praises Group Vomiting’

Response to the Alex Parker Piece ‘Feminist Rages Against GirlPal ‘Galentine’s Day,’ Says No Women Are Lonely, Praises Group Vomiting’

A conservative editorialist at the Town Hall site, Alex Parker (who I assume is a man), mocks an (Link): anti-Galentine’s Day essay written by a secular, liberal feminist named Rachel Hosie.

“Galentine’s Day” is a new holiday where women friends can celebrate their friendships with each other on February 13th.

The secular feminist that Parker is responding to believes that Galentine’s Day is patronizing to single women, so she is not in support of the holiday.

As a never-married woman who is over 45 years of age who had wanted to be married, but it didn’t come to pass for me, I came to terms with being never-married years ago, so Valentine’s Day no longer bothers me the way it used to.

I don’t have strong feelings for or against Galentine’s Day.

While Hosie’s contention may be true that Galentine’s Day is patronizing towards single adulthood (which is a bad thing), I see it as ultimately a harmless day for women to spend enjoying the friendship of their women friends, so I don’t object to the holiday.

I do however object to a few of the points that Parker made while trying to dismantle Hosie’s arguments.

I will provide excerpts from the Parker editorial and then offer my observations:

(Link): Feminist Rages Against GirlPal ‘Galentine’s Day,’ Says No Women Are Lonely, Praises Group Vomiting

Excerpts:

[Hosie the liberal feminist writes,]

Actually, we don’t need your pity — and the whole concept perpetuates the ridiculous myth of the sad, single woman.

[To which conservative Parker replies,]

The ridiculous myth?? How is it a myth, and how is it ridiculous?

Men want women, and women want men; that’s why we have February 14th … Thursday’s gonna find some people without dates; some portion of those will have ovaries; and some of those are gonna be none too thrilled.

Oh, wait — I forgot; this is 2019.

Okay…women aren’t women and men aren’t men and women don’t have to be like men or women, and there are no men or women…
–(end quotes)—-

My comments regarding this portion of the exchange:

Spinsters and Crazy Cat Ladies

I cannot believe Parker is feigning ignorance of the “sad, pathetic” single woman trope.

Being a conservative who is critiquing a liberal or feminist essay does not mean having to act ignorant of certain societal truths in the process.
