My Husband Won’t Take His Mask Off – Not Even For Sex by T. Bosch

My Husband Won’t Take His Mask Off – Not Even For Sex by T. Bosch

Anyone out there who thinks snarking at another adult over the age of 21 that “you’re probably a virgin” (as though having sex is a mark of maturity or adulthood, ie, using sexual activity or lack thereof as an insult), needs to reconsider that in light of the stupid sex-related things that people who do have sex do. Such as…

We’re both vaccinated now. When will this stop?

Dear Prudence,

I have been married to a great guy for five and a half years. He is handsome, sexy, funny, and kind.

It’s true that he has always been a little “prissy” about illnesses, but I never thought it was a real problem.

However, during the pandemic, his terror about getting sick has reached new levels.

For the last year, he has refused to take off his face mask, even when we are at home—just the two of us. This is true even now that he is fully vaccinated for the virus.

He wears it to sleep, to do most of his bathroom activities, and, yes, even during lovemaking.

Dec 2016

In the face of AI exerts repeatedly predicting the rise of sex robots, it’s increasingly difficult to insist that such machines strictly belong to a far-off, dystopian future.

But some robotics experts predict we’ll soon be doing far more than having sexual intercourse with machines. Instead, we’ll be making love to them—with all the accompanying romantic feelings.

NY Times Says Robot Marriage Becoming Mainstream; Pastor Believes Church Partly to Blame by B. Showalter

NY Times Says Robot Marriage Becoming Mainstream; Pastor Believes Church Partly to Blame by B. Showalter

(Link): NY Times Says Robot Marriage Becoming Mainstream; Pastor Believes Church Partly to Blame

Excerpts:

The nation’s most prominent newspaper is asserting marriage to robots is becoming mainstream, as is what is now called “digisexuality.”

In a Saturday New York Times article — titled “Do you take this robot…” with the subtitle “Today we fall in love through our phones. Maybe your phone itself could be just as satisfying?” — the newspaper noted that artificial intelligence-driven sex robots are becoming more mainstream.

In an age of sexting and dating apps like Tinder, it is fair to ask whether everyone might be a “closet digisexual,” the article said.

“The idea that flesh-and-blood humans may actually forge fulfilling emotional, or even sexual, relationships with digital devices is no longer confined to dystopian science fiction movies,” the newspaper declared on its Twitter feed.

by K. Highnett – Dec 2018

In July 2016, Irish woman Amanda Teague declared that she had married the undead spirit of Jack Teague, a 300-year old Haitian pirate she claims inspired the Pirates of the Caribbean movie series’ iconic Jack Sparrow.

Teague, who is a Jack Sparrow impersonator, announced the split on social media, writing, “So I feel it’s time to let everyone know that my marriage is over. I will explain all in due course but for now all I want to say is be very careful when dabbling in spirituality, it’s not something to mess with,” The Mirror reported.

I Me Wed: Why Are More Women Choosing To Marry Themselves? by C. Lytton

I Me Wed: Why Are More Women Choosing To Marry Themselves? by C. Lytton

(Link): I me wed: why are more women choosing to marry themselves?

…Though solo ceremonies such as Tanner’s are unlikely to ever unseat the traditional union for two, they do seem to be on the rise; part of a much bigger social trend for women rejecting the traditional timeline of their mothers and grandmothers, and forging an independent path, worlds away from the ‘spinster’ stereotype.

“I think it’s hard not to adopt whatever society’s messages are … and I certainly think that one of the messages is, ‘You are not enough if you are not with someone else,’” Erika Anderson said of her decision to self-marry.

The 37-year-old, who lives in New York, wed her university sweetheart in her twenties but the pair split aged 30 after growing apart. Committing to herself, she said, was “an act of defiance.”

Sologamy – Marrying Yourself

Sologamy – Marrying Yourself

Personally, I feel this is weird.

But I get it. Women get tired of people asking them, “When are you going to marry” as though a woman’s not truly valid until she gets a husband.

I note that many of my fellow conservatives are totally mocking it – but most of these people have been married for decades and are blind to how bad society idolizes marriage and shames anyone who is still single past the age of 29.

I wouldn’t marry myself, as I find it an odd concept, but I can see how other singles might do something like this to send the message they are valuable on their own, and they are tired of friends and family asking them when they are going to marry.

Russell Davison, 50, decided he wanted to be in control of what happened to his partner’s corpse after she passed way from cancer on April 21.

Salvation Army Bans Duggar / Quivering Cult’s ‘Retreat’ (Called ‘Get Them Married’) that Promoted Arranged Marriages for Teen Girls – Quivering Advocates Are Anti-Adult Singleness and Anti-Celibacy

Salvation Army Bans Duggar / Quivering Cult’s ‘Retreat’ (Called ‘Get Them Married’) that Promoted Arranged Marriages for Teen Girls – Quivering Advocates Are Anti-Adult Singleness and Anti-Celibacy 

Before I present you with the links to the news reports about this story (which are much farther down the page), I wanted to make some introductory comments in general, and a few specific comments refuting a few points from a pro-Quivering page about celibacy.

In regards to the specific news story I am blogging about today, this Quivering group is completely overlooking Apostle Paul’s comments in (Link): 1 Corinthians 7 that it is better for people to remain single than it is to marry – and Paul does not say that this teaching is in regards only to “a few,” or only a “minority” of people.

The Bible nowhere states that marriage is “a norm,” or that God expects or wants all, or most, people to marry.

It just so happens that in other cultures thousands of years ago, most people did happen to marry – one should not deduce from this cultural situation that God supported it or wanted it to be so. It just was what it was.

If the Bible said that all or most ancient Jews painted their bodies green once a year and balanced weasels on their heads while jumping up and down on a watermelon one week out of a year, one should not assume from this that

  • 1. God created that cultural practice and/or that
  • 2. God wanted Americans in the year 2016 to practice these things as well.

The Quivering group’s position on marriage, celibacy, and singleness is unbiblical, not to mention disturbing.

According to this article (linked to much farther below), the Quivering group was going to call this event, (where they set up marriages for little girls to marry), “Get Them Married.”

Why not have an event called, per 1 Corinthians 7, “It Is Better To Stay Unmarried”?

Am I opposed to marriage? No.

Is the God of the Bible against marriage? No.

But the Bible does not say that being married is better or more holy for girls, women, or culture, than being single, but a lot of Christian groups, and these wacky Christian cults, insist otherwise.

Christians need to do a better job of recognizing adult singleness and celibacy as legitimate, godly, biblical lifestyles and choices for all persons (and not only meant for a small minority of people who were supposedly “gifted” with it), instead of promoting marriage and natalism as the only legitimate avenues or as ways of fixing culture, the nation, or as pleasing God.

This Man Took Engagement Photos With A Burrito And It Was Burrito-ful

This Man Took Engagement Photos With A Burrito And It Was Burrito-ful

This guy’s sense of humor is pretty similar to mine (really stupid at times). This looks like something I might have done. If this guy is close to my age, he and I should totally marry.

Marry me, burrito guy! My other selling points: Not only do I like burritos, but I also like chimichangas and tacos.

Oh wait, I see from reading more that he’s only in his 20s. Ah well.

(Link): This Man Took Engagement Photos With A Burrito And It Was Burrito-ful

  • by B. Wong
  • There’s no greater love than that between a man and his burrito.
  • In response to the countless engagement and wedding photos on his Facebook newsfeed, San Francisco-based writer David Sikorski recently took some engagement pics with the love of his life: the carne asada burrito from Taqueria La Cumbre in the city’s Mission District.
  • “I’ve reached the age where my Facebook is now filled with engagement and baby photos; back in 05/06, it was filled with incriminating photos of my friends’ weekend escapades,” the 28-year-old told The Huffington Post. “I already had a strong burrito love so I called one of my music photographer friends [Kristina Bakrevski] and naturally she jumped at the idea.”
  • With that, Bakrevski, Sikorski and burrito set off to take photos in some of San Francisco’s most iconic and beautiful locations.

  • They took a long, languid stroll along Ocean Beach as local lovers do.
  • …They snapped some obligatory couple pics in front of the Golden Gate Bridge.
  • …At some point, a second burrito had to be swapped in. “I got hungry from running around the city all day and dealing with the intoxicating aroma of my favorite burrito,” Sikorski explained. No matter; his love for burrito #2 was just as intense. (Fun fact: Sikorski said the couple’s first dance at the wedding will be “I’ll Make Love To You” by Boyz II Men.)

Homosexual Rights Groups Angered After Two Hetero Men Marry to Win Sports Tickets

Homosexual Rights Groups Angered After Two Hetero Men Marry to Win Sports Tickets

It’s not too often I discuss homosexual marriage on my blog. If I do, I usually try to limit my discussion of the topic to how it inter-sects with Christian views about fornication and stuff like that.

But I saw this last night and thought it was odd and amusing. I do sometimes post about weird marriages on this blog, and I feel this one fits.

(Link):  Fury of gay community after two heterosexual men marry in New Zealand… so they can win tickets to Rugby World Cup

I think homosexual marriage in and of itself makes a mockery out of traditional marriage, so I find it rather rich some of the homosexual rights groups are screaming about two heteros marrying being a mockery of homosexual marriage.

Excerpts

  • By HEATHER MCNAB FOR DAILYMAIL AUSTRALIA
  • Got engaged for a radio competition to win Rugby tickets
  • Married this morning under New Zealand’s liberal marriage laws
  • Gay rights groups have spoken out against the couple
  • Gay host of radio show supports the couple
  • Insist life won’t change too much now they’re married 
  • |
  • Two heterosexual men have tied the knot on Friday morning under New Zealand’s liberal marriage laws.

    Marrying not for love, but for Rugby World Cup Tickets, the two men from Dunedin in the South Island of New Zealand officially said ‘I do’ in front of 60 family and friends.

    The ceremony was live broadcast by Edge Radio, who’s ‘I Love You, Man’ competition was launched earlier this year in a bid to find two straight men willing to wed for the sought after tickets.

    ‘It’s official folks, Travis and Matt have just said ‘I do’! Congrats to the happy couple!,’ the station tweeted.

  • Travis McIntosh, 23, and Matt McCormick, 24, won the ‘bromantic’ radio contest in August and are over the moon- not for a life together, but for the opportunity to head to the Rugby World Cup in England next year.

    While some gay rights groups in New Zealand have voiced objections to the nuptials, the pair are content with their reasons for the wedding.

    McIntosh, an engineer, and McCormick, a teacher, have known each other for nearly 20 years, and see the wedding as a celebration of their friendship rather than a political statement.

  • …A spokesperson from The Edge explained that as with any event that pushes boundaries, there was bound to be a bit of backlash.

    Local gay rights groups have condemned the wedding, protesting that it ‘trivializes what we’ve fought for,’ according to the New Zealand Herald.

    LegaliseLove Aotearoa Wellington co-chairman Joseph Habgood said the competition made clear that men marrying each other was ‘something they think is worth having a laugh at.’

    However, McCormick and McIntosh have explained that their friendship was one of the main motivators in the process, and that it has been strengthened through the trials and challenges which lead them to their big day.

    • By: Megan Stewart
    A group of men who rented an RV for a bachelor party discovered a dead body on board when they stopped in Winona Thursday night.

Dan Trainor of Rochester and his five friends were on their way to the Kentucky Derby when they discovered the body lodged in an exterior storage compartment.

The men, who are in their mid-20s, rented the RV from an individual in Anoka County whom Trainor called “a friend of a friend of a friend.” They left from Minneapolis and picked up Trainor on their way down.
Trainor said they stopped in Winona to see his dad and that’s when they discovered the body.

“I opened it up and I saw two legs and they’re bruised or decomposing,” Trainor said.
