“The Adult Market”

What’s adult about humiliating another person?

What’s adult about hurting another person?

What’s adult about forcing someone to do something she doesn’t really want to do?

What’s adult about doing sexual things to children?

We should call it what it is. The psychopathic sociopathic misogynist market. The sick fucks market.

(I’d intended to be more specific, but I’m concerned that the psychopathic sociopathic misogynist dudes would like that. Plus, merely describing these things repulses me.)

How many times?

Men are incredibly selfish and irresponsible. Every time they have sexual intercourse without a condom, they prove it.

Because every time they have sex without a condom, they risk making someone else’s life a living hell for twenty years (that’s what it’s like to be a parent against one’s will). All for ten minutes of their own pleasure/relief/whatever.

And every time they have sex without a condom, they risk creating a new human being. That will require food and water, and a computer and a car, and so on and so on. (All for ten minutes of their own pleasure/relief/whatever.)

How many times does a man have sex without a condom?

I rest my case.

Speaking Up

Women’s problem is that they never speak up. They never ask for what they want. Well, if you don’t tell people what you want, how do you expect to get it? Are they supposed to read your mind? You’ll spend your whole life waiting for someone to offer you, to invite you to, whatever it is. I know.

Men’s problem is that they do tell people what they want. Because they expect others to give it to them. And the mere expectation — you’ve heard of ‘self-fulfilling prophecy’?

Sticks and Stones

“Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”

What an awful lie. It makes me wonder who started it.

Someone for whom words have no meaning? Someone who, therefore, says whatever will achieve the desired effect, regardless of the truth of the matter?

Someone who has few words? Someone for whom, therefore, words have limited expressive value?

A man?

WE’RE overly emotional, irrational, and angry. Right.

“It’s funny to me, because of how often I’ve been called overly emotional, irrational, and angry for my feminist writings. But you know what’s interesting? I’ve never threatened to physically harm anyone. I’ve never sent a death threat, not once.” http://www.notsorryfeminism.com/

“If my wife will let me.”

“If my wife will let me.” That’s what Richard Branson said when he was asked whether he’d go to Mars. “It may be a one-way trip…. So maybe I’ll wait till the last ten years of my life, and then maybe go, if my wife will let me” (Klein, This Changes Everything, p.288). Does he really think no one will notice how inauthentic he was being? He’s one of the most powerful men in the world. He doesn’t need anyone’s permission for anything.

On top of that, he won’t take her?

And on top of that, she doesn’t have a name? (I’m surprised he didn’t say ‘the wife’ rather than ‘my wife’—to underscore his view that women are all just so interchangeable.)

It’s tiresome.

Wife/girlfriend as Mom. So the man can continue to be a child, just one of the boys.

Wife/girlfriend as authority. See, I’m not sexist, women have the real power.

Even from our most intelligent, most capable, men.

So very tiresome.

You should do something about that.

Imagine a collage of male body parts (of living men, that is — just now their whole selves), each with one of the following captions:

Your legs are too hairy. You should do something about that.

Your hair’s too thin. You should do something about that.

Your butt droops. You should do something about that.

You have no cheekbones. You should do something about that.

You have no hips. You should do something about that.

Your balls are lopsided. You should do something about that.

Smile.

Your butt’s too small. You should do something about that.

Your hair is too curly. You should do something about that.

Your ankles are too thick. You should do something about that.

Your hips are too broad. You should do something about that.

Your shoulders are too narrow. You should do something about that.

Smile.

Your butt’s too big. You should do something about that.

Your shoulders are too broad. You should do something about that.

Your balls are too hairy. You should do something about that.

Your hair is limp. You should do something about that.

Your legs have no shape. You should do something about that.

Smile.

Your toes are too fat. You should do something about that.

Your thighs are too thin. You should do something about that.

Your hair isn’t a good colour. You should do something about that.

Smile.

re cathartic value of porn

re cathartic value of porn:
“Does social work for the child-batterer consist of showing them pictures of parents torturing the children, with the children appearing to enjoy it — as a preventative measure?”
