I Have A New Twitter Account – sololoner3

My new Twitter account: (Link): sololoner3

Update:  this one as of today, Oct 5, has also been locked down. I don’t know why.

Update 2 or 3. (I’m losing track at this point):

I have yet another new Twitter account, seeing as how Twitter locked down “sololoner,” “sololoner2” – so now, I have been reincarnated as…
(Link): muddypig6

So, currently, you may follow me at “muddypig6,” until they lock THAT one down, in which case, I’ll have to come up with yet another one, time permitting

(My initial twitter is @sololoner2)

Yes, I created a new Twitter account because the idiots at Twitter put my initial account on lock down. I don’t know why.

I’ve been down this road with Twitter before on other Twitter accounts I have, and when they do unlock other accounts I have, it takes them any where from two to four months.

Mother Made Toddlers Have Sex With Each Other So Her Pedo Boyfriend Could Watch

Mother Made Toddlers Have Sex With Each Other So Her Pedo Boyfriend Could Watch

I am not clear if the toddlers exploited are this woman’s own children or someone else’s.

The following comes from a British online magazine, hence, the use of “Mum” rather than “Mom” through-out:

AN EVIL mum made toddlers have sex with each other while her paedo boyfriend watched the sickening footage over social media.

Florida man Roberto Oquendo, 38, has been caged for 50 years for conspiracy to produce child pornography and production of child porn.

The court also ordered Oquendo to forfeit two cellphones that he had used in connection with his heinous crimes – to which he pleaded guilty on January 30.

Dating Apps Are Making Marriages Stronger by P. Drexler

Dating Apps Are Making Marriages Stronger by P. Drexler

Before I commence with the excerpts from the Drexler article, I implore any married people out there:
Do NOT, do NOT, do NOT tell your single friends to “just try a dating site if you are lonely / want a boyfriend / want to get married,”
especially if that single friend is coming to you seeking empathy because they are single and would like to be in a relationship – they are discouraged and are looking for empathy, not your stupid dating advice.

I explain why you should avoid the cliche’ in this post.

The short of it is, just because a dating site worked FOR YOU or for Hank Jones mentioned in this article below, or just because it worked for your Aunt Sally, or for your best friend Marge, doesn’t mean other singles have success at online dating.

Some of us keep running into perverts, weirdos, and losers on dating sites and so we (Link): give up on dating sites and dating apps.

I am not opposed to dating sites or apps, but I recognize they are NOT guarantees of meeting a “Mr. Right,” so married folks:
stop acting like joining a dating site will solve all of a single woman’s problems in the romance department. Because they don’t work for everyone who tries them.

(Link): Dating Apps Are Making Marriages Stronger

Excerpts:

Couples who meet online tend to communicate better, commit more easily and have longer, happier relationships.

August 29, 2019

…. Online dating has been criticized for lots of things. Some say that it encourages a “meat market” approach to romance, offering too much choice – and too much temptation to constantly look for something better.

Others deride it as nothing more than a platform for arranging quick hookups. But there is now evidence that online dating could, in fact, be improving  the likelihood of romantic compatibility – and making marriage stronger.

According to a 2016 Pew Research poll, half of all Americans know someone who uses online dating or has met a spouse or serious partner that way.

Christian Rock Star Arrested In Connection With Child Sex Assault Probe Before Going on Stage

Christian Rock Star Arrested In Connection With Child Sex Assault Probe Before Going on Stage

The article says that this Christian rock star has a son. So, this guy is a father. I would assume that the rock star was married at one point (unless he had his son out of wedlock).

I point this out to say that a lot of conservative Christians and conservative secular think tanks keep arguing that “family values” and being “pro marriage” and people having children will somehow “fix” the United States. No, it won’t.

First of all, no passage in the Bible argues that the way to “fix” culture is to have more marriage and more natalism – chapter seven in 1 Corinthians actually says it is better to remain single than it is to marry. The Bible says a person must be changed by accepting Jesus as her savior, not by getting married and having kids. The Bible doesn’t talk about cleaning up culture.

Secondly, personal observation. There are way too many married people with children we all know, or have read about who are selfish, rapists, child molesters, or into selling drugs and what all (see some examples of that on this blog (Link): here and (Link): here).

Marriage and parenthood are not guarantees of making a person more mature, ethical, godly, principled, and responsible – but conservatives keep arguing otherwise, and it’s a highly deceitful and unbiblical argument for them to continue to advance.

Please see the bottom of this post for more remarks by me.

No One Told Me Exactly What to Expect From Menopause. But the Messages I Did Get Were Very Wrong by D. Steink

No One Told Me Exactly What to Expect From Menopause. But the Messages I Did Get Were Very Wrong by D. Steinke

(Link): No One Told Me Exactly What to Expect From Menopause. But the Messages I Did Get Were Very Wrong

Excerpts:

I was 50 when I woke in my dark attic bedroom in Brooklyn, my heart speeding and my body incandescent with heat. I did not feel simply hot, no, I was being smothered by an internal fire that seemed to pool inside my body like lava.

At first I thought it was a heart attack.

After more flashes, over my morning bowl of oatmeal, as I rode the subway under the East River and while I taught, I realized it was not a heart attack. It was a hot flash.

I had entered menopause, that fraught transition in every woman’s life, known in an earlier time as The Dangerous Age.

Earlier life stages, going through puberty and giving birth, had opened up new worlds, the excitement of sexuality and motherhood.

But menopause arrived without absorbing directives. Instead of new obsessions and responsibilities, I felt a nothingness.

It’s a void created in part by our oversexed patriarchal culture, a world that has little respect for older women.

Valued most for our sexuality and role as mothers many women feel, once that phase is over, as I did. Marginalized. The message, never stated directly but manifesting in myriad ways, is an overwhelmingly nihilistic one: your usefulness is over. Please step to the sidelines.

…..I searched for books that might help me understand what was happening to me. I read Suzanne Sommers’ The Sexy Years and Gail Sheedy’s Silent Passages.

Both are fear-based.

Both authors are frantic to keep the veneer of a fertile femininity intact.

This Is What Therapists Tell People Who Are Sick Of Being Single

This Is What Therapists Tell People Who Are Sick Of Being Single

I’m going to link to this page (farther below in this blog post) with a caveat.

The following page I am linking to is aimed primarily at adult singles who are around ages 20 to 39. As I write this post, I am over the age of 45, and I have never married.

This is the sort of article that doles out the standard, cliched advice that tells marriage-desiring adults  who are still single and worried about being single that “when you least expect it, that’s when you will meet Mr. (or Ms.) Right.”

It’s similar to the stereotyped and un-true Christian advice on this topic, which tells Christian singles that the moment they become “content in their singleness,” that is supposedly when God will send them their spouse.

  • As a now over- age- 45 adult who had wanted to be married,
    and as an adult who had expected and hoped to be married by age 35,
  • who once was a very devout Christian who believed the Christians who told me if I just prayed and trusted in God that God would send me a spouse,
  • and as an adult who has been content with her singleness on and off over the years,

I can tell you this:

None of this advice works, certainly not for everyone.

That is, you can be content being single and still not meet “Mr. Right.”

Excerpt:

Evans told CP that until manhood is properly defined, culture cannot be saved.
—///—

I am a (Link): former gender complementarian, so I understand the outlook of a Tony Evans and guys like him, and many of the assumptions that are made about culture and gender roles, but these are views that I no longer share.

Gender Role malarky aside, one of my biggest problems with the views of Tony Evans brought forth in this article is that he is of the mindset -like many Christians are- that culture can or should be saved.

He further thinks that teaching Christian gender roles is the way to go about it.

As I’ve stated many times previously in other posts, the Bible says that Jesus Christ alone saves, and he saves on the individual level.

He doesn’t save groups or cultures.

Conservatives Have Now Abandoned All Pretense of Advocating For Sexual Abstinence and They Actually Lament the Lack of Fornication – The Bradford Wilcox Piece, 2019

Conservatives Have Now Abandoned All Pretense of Advocating For Sexual Abstinence and They Actually Lament the Lack of Fornication – The Bradford Wilcox Piece, 2019

The following piece at The Atlantic (“The Happiness Recession”) was written by marriage-idolater and anti-singleness bigot of The Institute for Family Studies, W. Bradford Wilcox, and co-writer Lyman Stone.

I’d like to remind any new-comers to this blog that I am a life long conservative. I am not a liberal.

Marriage Is Not A Guarantee For Good or Regular Sex

This moronic essay actually suggests that single adults having less sex is what has led to them reporting higher rates of unhappiness, if I’m understanding things correctly.

This, astonishingly, from a right wing organization, (Link): The Institute For Family Studies, that claims to promote “strong families,” and good Lord knows they are obsessed with promoting marriage, even if that comes at the expense of singleness.

The members of this organization regularly publish materials intended to scare, guilt, shame, or pressure single adults into getting married, because this organization exists to promote the nuclear family: hetero-marriage where the couple have children.

Excerpts:

by Dr. Peggy Drexler

Birth rates around the world are going down as maternal ambivalence climbs. So why do women who have happily chosen childlessness still feel judged? Dr Peggy Drexler, a New York-based research psychologist who has written books on gender and family, explores the ongoing stigma.


….The reasons women are giving are varied. Having babies is expensive for one thing: a (Link): 2017 USDA report found that American parents spend, on average, more than $230,000 on child costs from birth to age 17, not including college.

…The increase in working women — and female breadwinners — around the world has also left many reluctant to leave jobs that aren’t always guaranteed to be there when they return.

Colton Underwood Acts Disgusted By Concept of Women’s Period Underwear

Colton Underwood Acts Disgusted By Concept of Women’s Period Underwear

I have previously defended this Underwood guy when he was being mocked by people online for being a virgin into adulthood. Nobody should be shaming people for being virgins.

However, I refuse to defend Underwood on this one.

I have no patience for men who act “grossed out” and immature over women’s periods and all that accompany them.

Men are not the ones who have to deal with the actual inconveniences and physical pains accompanied by periods, which usually last for around five or six days every month out of every year.

Women cannot control when or if we get periods. We cannot help if the period blood leaks and stains our bed-sheets, pants, shorts, or skirts – those are just some of the realities women have to contend with when getting a period monthly.

(Some men are so stupid about how periods work, they seriously do not know how long periods last or how often women get them, which is why I mention that.)

Underwood, like countless men, don’t understand the practical realities of living with a period.

You don’t simply throw out a pair of underwear if you get some period blood on it – you toss it in the washer and clean it and re-use it.

It would be too expensive to continually buy new underwear if every time you put a pair on it becomes soiled by period blood.

And I don’t care how angry this makes the commenter who won’t stop going on about my dusty appliances.

I am targeting the fun, buoyant gatherings of families I’m never invited to because I don’t have a family and why would a woman without kids want to attend a “kid” event?

It couldn’t be that a group of people she likes are having fun and she’s not, heavens no.

People in couples invite other people in couples to do stuff. People with kids invite other people with kids to do stuff.

Single people don’t get invited to either kind of stuff. I mention this not out of spite, but out of longing. I have Instagram. I see.
