…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.

‘The Taliban Will Enjoy Killing Us’: Gay Man Trapped in Afghanistan Says Extremists ‘Are Hunting Us’

‘The Taliban Will Enjoy Killing Us’: Gay Man Trapped in Afghanistan Says Extremists ‘Are Hunting Us’

Bear in mind as you read this story below that many American liberals and leftists often…

– especially the ex-Christians, or the guys who use the “Exvie” (ex-evangelical) tags on Twitter, or some of the Facebook groups that rant about Christian spiritual abuse and in favor of leftist identity politics –

…behave as though American evangelical Christians or Republicans are the biggest threats to homosexuals.

Aside from homosexuals, the Taliban (Muslim extremists) don’t like Christians; I just heard the other day that Christians trying to flee Afghanistan say that if the Taliban catches a Christian, they will set a living Christian on fire.

I’d be a little less concerned if someone won’t use my “pronouns” or refuses to bake me a wedding cake over my sexual identity or behavior, and more concerned over being shot or burned alive by Muslim extremists for political or religions disagreements.

A gay man trapped in Kabul has said the Taliban ‘are hunting us’ as he gave a harrowing description of what a life under the extremists’ rule would look like for the LGBTQ+ community.

The man, whose identity has been concealed for his own safety, said the Taliban would take pleasure in hunting down and killing LGBTQ+ people in an exclusive interview with MailOnline.

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.”

The Religion of Wokeness (video)

The Religion of Wokeness (video)

(The video entitled “The Religion of Wokeness” is embedded and linked to towards the end of this post. I may embed and/or link to other videos from this series below)

I’ve noticed for well over a year now that Wokeness, CRT, Identity Politics, intersectionality, Whiteness Studies, Black Lives Matters, and all these other leftist movements and lingo are religious in tone.

Leftists sound and act like they are in a cult.

It’s perhaps most glaring with people who say they left conservative or fundamentalist Christianity and behave as though they have just merely swapped out those former religious beliefs for the secular religion of Wokeness.

Most of these liberals / progressives who’ve left conservative Christianity remain blind to the fact that they’ve merely made Leftism / Leftist causes into their new religion.

Harvard Professor Who Refuses to Use the Term ‘Pregnant People’ and Insists on ‘Woman’ is accused of Transphobia By Her Woke Ivy League Colleague

Harvard Professor Who Refuses to Use the Term ‘Pregnant People’ and Insists on ‘Woman’ is accused of Transphobia By Her Woke Ivy League Colleague

If an adult born of one biological sex later in life wants to pretend to be of the other biological sex, I don’t entirely care (so long as it does not negatively impact me or other people), but I DO NOT support this idiocy, where facts of life, like biological sex, are denied!

People should not be hounded online, or banned or suspended from social media, or receive hate mail from people, or face being fired from their job, for knowing and saying that most humans are born one sex or the other, or for stating or acknowledging truisms, such as men don’t get periods or get pregnant, and women don’t have testicles or penises.

Woke-ism does not respect science – but then, I suppose the idiots on the left consider science “whiteness,” and hence “white supremacy” (eye roll), so they’re fine with ignoring it, I suppose.

The far left activist crack-pots (and many in the Democrat Party) are demanding everyone else in society speak in their woke terms and deny scientific realities. This is not okay.

Harvard lecturer Carole Hooven took heat from her own colleague after an appearance on Fox News this week in which she asserted that biological sex is real and defended the continued use of terms like ‘pregnant women’ and “male and female.”

“The ideology seems to be that biology really isn’t as important as how somebody feels about themselves, or feels their sex to be,” Hooven told “Fox & Friends” Wednesday. “The facts are that there are in fact two sexes — there are male and female — and those sexes are designated by the kind of gametes we produce.”

Joe Rogan Claims Gay and Transgender People are the ‘Most Vicious’ Champions of Cancel Culture and Says They are ‘Coming After People Because They Were Bullied’

I’m going to say he’s partially right here, only – it’s mostly Transgenders (and their “allies”) and extremist Atheists who are the nastiest on social media and trying to get free speech of their opponents silenced.

I’d say in the last few years, homosexual men and homosexual women have somewhat decreased as threats.

As to the their motivation, I can’t really say – maybe some of these miserable “cancel culture” people and progressives were bullied as children, but some of them may be drive by their politics.

Rogan, 53, claimed on his July 21 episode of the Joe Rogan Experience that gay and transgender people have ‘been bullied’ and are now coming after people who are not members of the LGBTQ community, as spotted by Mediaite.

‘You know what the thing that’s going on with the left – a lot of it is, they’re being bullies and a lot of the people that are progressive, that are really like open-minded, unfortunately, there is a lot of people on the left that were bullied by a**holes when they were young,’ Rogan said on the July 21 episode of his podcast.

‘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.

As if we needed more proof that the Looney Tunes left is traveling down the crazy train tracks at an ever-increasing degree of silliness, a “transfeminist bioethicist” activist in Toronto is on the warpath against people who “gender” animals — refer to animals as either male or female. In other words, pretty much everyone on the planet.

Florence Ashley — who prefers the pronouns “they” and “them” — explained in a tweet:

“Gendering animals serves to normalise [sic] bioessentialist conceptions of gender. When we gender animals, we forget that sex is assigned. We begin to believe that sex is literally ~in~ the body.”

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.

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.
