Pro-Trans is indeed showing itself to be the lunatic fringe of the cultural left. The idea of a man being able to exhibit his wiener in a woman’s spa is so outrageous, that it takes a special kind of idiocy to fire up these fools to the degree needed. Bunch of cowardly kids attacking nerdy Christians, knocking them down and kicking them. Their assaulting people doesn’t bode well. Note the use of a skateboard as a weapon as in Kenosha.

The major distortion here is critical race theory. Even though the main contradiction (we would naturally think) would be between American veterans and the Vietnamese, Darda twists the problem 90 degrees and has it be between Whites and Blacks. There’s no denying that America helped perpetrate a savage war against the Vietnamese people, but Darda wants the problematic to be about white veterans finding each other in racist solidarity against Blacks after the war, and continuing forward.

Darda is aware of, but glosses, excellent authors like Karl Marlantes, who writes sensitively about the charged relationship between Black and White marines…

Western astrology dates from Babylon and the Greeks, and is tropical (Zodiac organized around the vernal equinox.) Indian astrology is siderial (Zodiac organized around the constellations.) Siderial astrology in the west is positivist-- sort of implies that "rays" come from the skies and influence us. Tropical astrology is Jungian-- it depends on correspondences , synchronicity, and the like. As an astrologer, I find that it's much more accurate than the Meyers-Briggs type analysis, say. There's nothing racist or culturally appropriative about Western Astrology. It has nothing to do with white women in particular., and can be useful to anyone. I don't agree.

I have been jailed many times by Facebook, usually unfairly by my lights. I criticized an academic product once and was jailed. I no longer get 3 or 7 day sentences: they're always 30 days. When I get too angry at discussions, I time myself out of FB by posting "Sieg Heil." This is good for a 30 day sentence even if it's meant ironically or quoted.

Kate was giving the service she wanted to give, not what the client was paying her for. I think normal sex works that way too. Maybe I should say any kind of sex, instead.

Many people, often men, just do what they think it's all about. For good sex, you have to intuit what the other person wants (or will respond to.) Most of us have a powerful capacity to be psychic this way, but it entails listening to the other person's energy.

Shame at anything is the cancer of our age.

Luckily, I became a professor so I wouldn't have a supervisor. My experience is that "Human Resources" has a firm connection to the most psychotically "woke" parts of the academy, though. Direct connection from Oberlin to corporations.

Seriously, the nice thing about having had white male working class socialization is that there's no way for people like me to buy into the current posturing white masochism. I just scratch my head. If you want to know why idiots support fascists like Trump, look no further. People like you are the reason.

His film works for me. He's a high school teacher. I don't expect scholarship.

I think my hobby (in the past) has been OCD women. Most intellectual ladies tend toward this-- men too. I think my 60s generation was privileged in the we came to sex just as marijuana became popular. In order to enjoy pot (in a clean way,) you need to learn to meditate, in other words clear your mind from excess thinking-- even if you don't call this meditation. If you don't clear your mind, you may overthink and get paranoid, or just feel fucked up (which is what I think many youngsters today do.) So the appropriate use of light…
