Only Nixon could go to China

July 25th, 2014 by Zen

While Feminists are a humorless bunch, any attempts by men to explain any shortcomings are immediately shouted down as vile, sexist misogyny. It is called man-splaining. Never mind, that that happens to be men’s native conversation style and would be treating them like a man.

But if a woman, or a group of intelligent women, disagree with the party line of Feminism, and start a Tumblr called, “Women Against Feminism”, and explain that they are neither victims nor oppressed, you can expect all kinds of hell to be stirred up. I will forbear the most vicious links against them, but will share ones that are still illuminating.

Hell hath no fury is not reserved purely for men who scorn women, and the most vicious, hateful name-calling is being used against them.

Feminists are insistent they don’t understand what Feminism really is while the ‘rebel scum’ insist that modern Feminism does nothing to resemble the dictionary definition. And appearently women don’t like Fem-splaining any better than Man-splaining.

Statutory rape

June 24th, 2014 by Vader

Most of the other jokes about this are even worse.

So why link such vulgar material at our genteel blog? Well, we’re observers of culture and cultural decadence, and the fact that the fertility idols of the ancient world have made a comeback seems noteworthy.

Except, given the setting, perhaps these are better described as infertility idols.

A New Heaven and a New Earth

June 12th, 2014 by Zen

“With Christian or Jewish presuppositions, or indeed Muslim, then if you believe in what it says in Genesis 1 about God making heaven and earth—and the binaries in Genesis are so important—that heaven and earth, and sea and dry land, and so on and so on, and you end up with male and female. It’s all about God making complementary pairs which are meant to work together. The last scene in the Bible is the new heaven and the new earth, and the symbol for that is the marriage of Christ and his church. It’s not just one or two verses here and there which say this or that. It’s an entire narrative which works with this complementarity so that a male-plus-female marriage is a signpost or a signal about the goodness of the original creation and God’s intention for the eventual new heavens and new earth.”

Scholar NT Wright explains marriage, and gay marriage and scripture

Separation of Work and the Married State

April 21st, 2014 by G.

Men need achievement. They need to earn respect. But when men get together to start striving and doing, they often get absurd. Everyone who’s spent time there knows the workplace is just a bit ridiculous. Even workplaces with bona-fide valuable missions: when I was in the military I estimated it was about 3/4ths farce, except not played for laughs.

I wonder if men need women to bring them back to earth sometimes. When you’re a kid, you play dress up at home. When you’re grown, you come home so you can stop playing dress up.

Awake in the Night Land

The Last Redoubt

John C. Wright’s book Awake in the Night Land is out.

I can’t really express how good it is. This is a book that I will be rereading and thinking about for the rest of my life. It is a book that made my eyes shine when my wife walked into the room. It is touched with holiness. (more…)

With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

April 10th, 2014 by G.

Modesty is to women as chivalry is to men.

-Thus Calculated Bravery.

The idea is that chivalry is the disciplined and God-fearing use of male power, whereas modesty is the disciplined and God-fearing use of female power.
