Tolerate Normalcy

February 16th, 2014 by Adam G.


More tolerance of the usual–including ordinary differences between men and women–would do a lot to promote human flourishing. Happy Valentine’s Day.

Thus James Taranto.

Biology, and Love and Glory

February 13th, 2014 by Adam G.

George Cochran Lambdin - The Consecration

Love and glory are of the fundamental attributes of God and reality. Love is unconditional whereas glory is earned respect, or conditional love. They are deeply intertwined and complementary. (more…)

Women are More Sad

February 06th, 2014 by Man SL

Because of feminism.

Home and family makes everybody happy, especially women. The best way to do that is for women to marry young, be faithful, be chaste, be religious, and don’t work full time.

On Reading Steve Sailer

January 28th, 2014 by Adam G.

Rod Dreher has some good thoughts. Without endorsing his viewpoint completely, I note that Mormonism and its temple and its doctrine of continuing revelation and line upon line and milk before meat has room for the concept of forbidden knowledge that secular liberalism does not.

The Young Women’s Program of the Mormon Church

January 21st, 2014 by Adam G.

father-and-teenage-daughter-using-laptop-at-homeA good man I know has been investigating the Church. He has daughters who are getting close to that age. One in particular is going on twelve. So he asked me about the church experience for a young woman. Because its a concern of his, he especially asked what his daughters would be taught about chastity and marriage. Here is my response. For readers with knowledge, please add anything you see fit in the comments. Readers with questions on the subject are welcome to ask them in the same place. (more…)

A Feminist Defense of Masculine Virtues does not include Pajama Boy

January 03rd, 2014 by Zen

Obamacare-pajama-boy1

 

God forgive me, I am about to agree with Camille Paglia.

What really started this off was her A Feminist Defense of Masculine Virtues. And there isn’t much more love for the much derided Pajama Boy icon of Obamacare.

And just prior to this, we have Time magazine with Paglia’s It’s a Man’s World, and It Always Will Be in contrast to Hanna Rosin’s Men are Obsolete.

The new Sexism is far more vicious and blind than any previous sexism. And when (not if) that pendulum swings back, our daughters and wives will be in much worse shape than ever before.

It makes me begin to think the difference between Men and Women is that Men don’t understand Women…. but Men know they don’t. Take that with a grain of salt, but I am not seeing much comprehension or appreciation from under the Pink Banner. Both Masculinity and hard, necessary work of men are under-appreciated to our great danger. Even North Korea could defeat a nation of Pajama Boys.

Let’s Send God’s Daughters to Die for Gender Equality!

January 03rd, 2014 by Adam G.

The modern left is all broken eggs and no omelets.

Or, as Hemingway puts it.

But to state the obvious, by which I mean I’m about to say something extremely controversial, the average female is not as strong in the upper-body region as the average man. (Again: Please don’t demand I be written out of polite society for noting this truth that was universally acknowledged until roughly 15 minutes ago.)

Hemingway is reacting to a study showing that many female Marines can’t do the pull-up requirement, with a rough difference of t2-3 standard deviations from the male marines.

Reality is one of God’s revelations to us. It’s pretty clear that God didn’t intend mixing it up to be a woman’s role.

R.I.P. Mikhail Kalashnikov

December 23rd, 2013 by Bookslinger

Inventor of the “AK-47 — Avtomat Kalashnikov”.

Although he worked for our Cold War enemy, and his classic rifle is generally used by folks we consider to be bad guys, his rifle design was well-suited for its purposes. Tens of millions of both the fully-automatic and semi-automatic versions of his famous rifle are still in use.

As far as firearms designers/inventors go, I would place John Moses Browning (a Mormon) at the top, for his classics which include, but are not limited to, the Colt 1911 and the Browning Hi-Power handguns, the M2 .50 caliber machine gun, the Browning Automatic Rifle (B.A.R.), and the Browning Auto-5 shotgun. I would rank Samuel Colt second, and Mr. Kalashnikov third.

My rankings are based on my limited knowledge of modern firearm history. Others whose knowledge extends further into the past may include other inventors in the top spots of fiream history.
