Well, as someone who has an interest in sociology, gender, and kink, I suppose I had to write about this at some point or another…..
Back in the day, in my early ‘teens–I flipped through the pages of a Barely Legal porno mag and thought, “Hawt, damn, college women are soooo sophisticated.” Now, many women that might be called MILFS are of the general age range to be my peers. Guess I haven’t “matured” enough to be a Cougar’s peer….
A few years back, I was hanging out with a hard drinking metal girl. She boasted that she loved porno, especially stuff with inter racial couples. She then offered to show me her collection, to which I declined. I’m sure a PUA would tell me that a girl offering to show her porn collection is an invitation that she would like you to escalate, however my gut instincts told me this is someone I shouldn’t get involved with….
The last time I was in an adult bookstore was a huge superstore called Hustler Hollywood. It looks more like a Borders bookstore than a hole in the wall porno shop. It’s well lit. Friendly staff greet you and ask if you have any questions. There are gag gifts and funny tee shirts like you might find in Spencer’s. Most interesting of all, it’s not the raincoat crowd. There were couples, groups of girls, groups of guys and assorted single people. Some were laughing. Some unashamedly walked with DVD’s, toys or magazines under their arm. Except for the fact that everyone was over 18, you could’ve been at your local mall.
Seems to me porno is becoming more and more mainstream, almost respectable…
Well, you can always find a critique against it. I read one by Roger Jensen a little while back. He mentioned how it was just a tradition of men selling women’s bodies as a commodity. Well, one thing that always strikes me as a little dishonest in these conversations is how someone will say how you are “buying women.” Do you buy a gardener if you pay him to work on your lawn? You purchase a service. If you buy pornography, are you perhaps buying a performance similar to if you buy a DVD of your favorite band? Also, when people talk about objectification, how come it only seems to refer to the actresses? How come they never say, “Oh, poor man, he is being reduced to nothing more than a throbbing, hard penis that spews copius amounts of ejaculate?” Doesn’t this critique leave out gays and transsexuals. Granted, that is a world I haven’t explored and don’t care too, but… …the point I’m trying to get at is that we don’t seem to be having honest conversations about gender or sexuality.
Thaddeus Blanchette just left a link on my blog to an article of his. It is in reaction to an article called Can You Trust Your Johnson? at The Good Men Project. Anyways, since dopamine and “brain circuits” get mentioned, I can’t but help think of video games. I like video games, but am not addicted. Anyhow, I don’t know where I fit into this picture as my greatest exposure to the naked female form is at my local clothing optional beach 😉
QRG just gave me a shoutout at her Miss Whiplash and ManBoobz – The Mystery of the Male Feminist article.
“regular commenter Stoner, reminded me of a high profile internet male feminist: Manboobz. http://manboobz.com/
We discussed whether the ‘manboobz’ of his name refer to himself, in a self-depreciating humourous way, or whether he is saying something about anti -feminist men. Do they think they are big masculine men but really they have ‘manboobz’? I don’t know! His tagline is ‘misogyny- I mock it’ so I expect it is the latter.”
Might surprise some, but I dig the outdoors. This weekend I took myself on a long hike. Love the road less traveled. Sometimes that can be great. Sometimes I find cool stuff. This time, nah….
Should’ve stayed on the “official” trails. Walked down a hill. All of the sudden I was surrounded by bees. Started running. Tore off my shirt to whisk ’em away. Mutherfuckers started stinging. I was shit scared-terrified even. One sting after another. Pulled a stinger outta my arm. Breathless–tears running down my cheeks. Made my way back to my truck. Started to calm down a bit. I had stings everywhere, even on my scalp. Was I in shock? Was I supposed to drive to the hospital?
Got back home. Read on the ‘net that ammonia and baking soda were good for bee stings. Wiped myself down with ammonia. The hard smell opened my sinuses. Jumped in the tub, took some baking soda and rubbed my wounds. After doing a quick count I estimated 15-20 stings. I felt beat up but realized that I was excruciatingly hungry. Got dressed. Went to a Vietnamese restaurant. Started eating a big bowl of Pho. For those who don’t know, it’s basically chicken soup with vermicelli noddles that you can hot rod with hot sauce, jalapenoes and soy sauce.
Now here’s where things get strange. As I was eating my hot rodded Pho, I realized I was feeling very good. I still felt beat up. I was still in a world of hurt. But overall, I was in an amazing mood. Maybe there is some chemical in bee stingers that produces euphoric effects. I have heard some people get a “high” after getting tattooed. Maybe I was experiencing something similar.
After such a crappy day, it was ironic that I went to sleep with a smile on my face.
“What better way is there to “neutralize” a dissenter than by having her and especially him sexually assaulted or even merely threatened. The humiliation is unbearable. Thus rape is self-silencing in most cases but not for Donny who, as you know, was the first prisoner rape victim to go public. And he did so immediately after his release from the hospital.”
Peter J. Reilly’s article continues on…
“A Korean War-era veteran of the US Air Force, I had been raped a few years earlier, in October 1968–in San Antonio where I had been publishing an underground newspaper named “Inferno” in Spanish and English. Two memos from my FBI files indicate COINTELPRO may have set me up to be “neutralized” (their word) by being beaten, gang-raped and otherwise tortured for twenty-four hours while jailed for civil disobedience. ”
“But as a long-time, non-violent, left-wing radical activist and survivor of torture, institutionalized barbarism is not strange to me. For instance, I’ve been keeping my eye on FEMA prison camps since construction began a decade or two ago. Now there are between six and eight hundred all over the country—waiting empty but stocked with supplies for a national “emergency.” Just two years ago, Pres. Obama gave his approval to the prison camps managed by FEMA by signing into law the National Emergency Centers Act (HR 645) of 2009. Yes, I’m a “conspiracy nut” and for many bloody good reasons.”
I started googling in regards to FEMA CONCENTRATION CAMPS
“There over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general’s signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached. Ask yourself if you really want to be on Ashcroft’s list.”
“Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot are the two sub programs which will be implemented once the Rex 84 program is initiated for its proper purpose. Garden Plot is the program to control the population. Cable Splicer is the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government. FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state and thus will head up all operations. The Presidential Executive Orders already listed on the Federal Register also are part of the legal framework for this operation.”
More on Operation Cable Splicer from sourcewatch.org:
“Operation Cable Splicer is a subprogram of the Rex 84 Program, which “was established on the reasoning that if a ‘mass exodus’ of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed down and to be turned into prisons.”
Operation Cable Splicer is “the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government. FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state and thus will head up all operations. The Presidential Executive Orders already listed on the Federal Register also are part of the legal framework for this operation.”

“If any civil disturbance by a resistance group, religious organization, or other persons considered to be non-conformist takes place, under Appendix 3 to Annex B of Plan 55-2 hereby gives all Federal forces total power over the situation if local and state authorities cannot put down said dissenters.
Annex A, section B of Operation Garden Plot defines tax protesters, militia groups, religious cults, and general anti-government dissenters as Disruptive Elements. This calls for the deadly force to be used against any extremist or dissident perpetrating any and all forms of civil disorder.
Under section D, a Presidential Executive Order will authorize and direct the Secretary of Defense to use the Armed Forces of the United States to restore order.”
” Section 3:
This plan could be implemented under any of the following situation:
(1) Spontaneous civil disturbances which involve large numbers of persons and/or which continue for a considerable period of time, may exceed the capacity of local civil law enforcement agencies to suppress. Although this type of activity can arise without warning as a result of sudden, unanticipated popular unrest (past riots), it may also result from more prolonged dissidence.
This would most likely be an outgrowth of serious social, political or economic issues which divide segments of the American population. Such factionalism could manifest itself through repeated demonstrations, protest marches and other forms of legitimate opposition but which would have the potential for erupting into spontaneous violence with little or no warning.
(2) Planned acts of violence or civil disobedience which, through arising from the same causes as (1) above, are seized upon by a dedicated group of dissidents who plan and incite purposeful acts designed to disrupt social order.”
This is some disturbing stuff…
well, since it’s basically a two party system in the “Good Ole'” USofA, I’m kind of fucked…..
You see, I can’t vote Republican—I’m not rich enough or white enough and I don’t bow down to Jesus….
You see, I can’t vote Democrat—I like guns and pickup trucks and I also have a pair of testicles….
Well I’m against the wars and I’m also against the bailouts….
Fuck the Teabaggers–they’d let me die since I don’t have health insurance.
Fuck the Libertarians-they talk about equal taxation, but somehow I just think that means a bigger bill for me.
Fuck the Conservatives-they’d gladly send me to die in some shitty war for oil.
Fuck the Liberals-they pretend to be about equality but they look down on you if you don’t have the right piece of paper from some overpriced university.
Fuck the Feminists-they pretend to be about equality but they’d gladly throw me under the bus because my chromosomes are XY.
Fuck the MRM-they pretend to be pro men but somehow I don’t think they want to give me more liberty and freedom, seems like they want to return to the 1950’s.
Fuck the Gays-don’t look down on me just because I didn’t go to your stupid parade or vote for your stupid proposition and stop starring at my butt.
Lastly, Fuck You White Power types-what did this “halfbreed” ever do to you? Oh, I get it your afraid I’ll sleep with “your” women….
—end of rant, goddamnit, that felt good.
this story is kind of like mine except I’m still alive…..
