    sheesh, i know a few people in Nevada who work with women in the sex trade and try to do the kind of work that some of your family does. Let me be clear, those people have vastly greater reservoirs of empathy and patience and compassion than I do.

    But it seems, to this amateur and untrained eye to be getting worse.

    Boom industry? cosmetic surgery. to what end. Vanity and sex

    Erectile dysfunction. It ain't a disease

    An aphrodisiac is an aphrodisiac. an aphrodisiac can be defined as a medicine in only the most sex obsessed and addictive societies.

    The word "spouse" is now in disuse. It has been substituted with "partner"

    People choke on the word "matrimony"

    And "marriage"

    And the orgasm has become the definition of a successful relationship between two people of a different sex.

    Monogamy is devalued, scorned.

    And he or she or it who has the most sexual partners, short intermediate or long term wins.

    I await your further dialogue.

    My own feeble step was at the ballot box. Starting in 2014 I no longer voted for divorced people. My (weak) rationale was that if they broke the "let no man put asunder" vow. it would be a helluva lot easier to break the next one.


    perhaps we can foment an exploratory discussion here. perhaps
    What do you think is at the root of all this? Do you think there is a singular root for each or each has its own primary problem?

    If you are a Christian/Catholic your definition of sex is wildly different than the current world view of sex. Sex would be something isolated to your spouse and your spouse only. Dare I even say with your opposite sex spouse. I think the problem is that over the years the sanctity of marriage and even sex has been watered down. People today probably get married now more for financial reasons than anything else. Imagine if there were zero benefits to being married. Would people even see the point of marriage? If, to most, marriage is somewhat meaningless then sex would be as well.

    To one of your other points. I know more than a few women who have went under the knife to improve appearance in a few areas. One person got her boobs done but would be the first to complain if she felt someone was looking at them. She has even made the comment that she got the surgery to boost her confidence professionally and she did not want to be seen as an “object”.

    Working as a social worker with the juvenile sex offenders was really eye opening. I thought I was in some sort of hidden camera show. Therapists and others were told/trained that “healthy” sexual coping mechanisms were to look at porn and masterbate. This place was supplying adolescent juveniles with material they not only kept but most of them plastered all over their walls. Some of them even carried binders of porn like baseball cards. This is what the world is teaching what healthy sex looks like. Then they were to go to group counseling and talk about how they are apologetic for touching their sister or typically some other relative. I wouldn’t have thought this was a big deal but then realized other states and other facilities started coming to visit to see how things were done to start modeling after this facility. There was an all male group home of 18 year olds. Two boys started engaging in a sexual relationship and the facilities top minds got together and brainstormed if this was a healthy outlet for their sexual issues. It quickly became the group home of sex and had to be quickly squashed.

      • Then a fitting name for when the wokies come after the Fighting Irish name could just be the Notre Dame Taliban. Since their views align with the Taliban the Catholic church must also be on the verge of merging churches.

          I'd hope the Catholic Church wouldn't support 5-year prison terms for women who have abortions, but maybe you can speak more on the Taliban-Rome alliance.

          Anyway, yes I wake up in a sweat on a regular basis due to the threat of wokies (such scary people!) trying to get rid of the Fighting Irish nickname. A terrifying future indeed.

                • First, sex, eroticism and monogamy.

                  People think monogamy and erotic creativity and exuberance are mutually exclusive.

                  Well, it ain't necessarily so.

                  But when christ talks about monogamy he talks about a new entity a UNION between the two manufacturers of the sacrament.

                  And if there is an organism it cannot immolate itself (of course you can do suicide and self-maiming.

                  ButChrist may have been insisting on "time management"

                  for anyone who's cheated, even on a girffriend or fiancee, it is time and energy consuming. The plotting, the initiation, the lying the coverup, the disingenuous, the finding an excuse for betrayal.


                  And people forget that Lust Gluttony and Greed are conjoined triplets. It is the relentless purusit of

                  sex
                  food
                  cash

                  TO THE EXCLUSION OF GOD AND GOD's children that is the issue.

                  and we haven't even gotten to divorce

                  Let's assume two couples each with two kids.

                  When there is chaeatig, adultery divorce how many victims are there

                  Looks like at least 8 and that doesn't count the living parents and grandarents of the spouse, so that's an easy 8 more right there.

                  Christitanity ain't for everybody./

                  But Americans are addicted to Coke, Week, Booze, gambling, hate, anger and sex.

                  Not a problem for christians. .

                      Severe - (bad) very great; intense.

                      Anti-semitism - feeling or showing hostility toward or discrimination against Jews as a cultural, racial, or ethnic group.

                      Now tell us about Epstein, Weinstein, and Woody Allen are the product of Jewish doctrine and traditions.

                              Are Women Second-Class Citizens in Traditional Judaism?

                              By Chana WeisbergQuestion:


                              How can you seriously, honestly claim that Orthodox Judaism has any respect for women, and that they have the right view of them and seek true justice on their behalf?

                              Why can women not love G‑d but have self-respect, and free participation in our religion at the same time? Why can’t we be what He intended, and not what man wants to reduce us to? Why can religious women not see that it is simply religious manipulation on the part of men that keeps them content as second-class citizens within a third-world mentality?
                              Answer:


                              You sound upset and angry. You feel strongly that you want a connection to G‑d, but don’t see it in “religion” due to the supposed mistreatment of women.

                              I have much to say on the subject, and I really wish you could access a copy of my latest book, Tending the Garden, which addresses the role of women in Judaism and might just surprise you with some stereotype-breaking descriptions.

                              But I digress.

                              Let me tell you what I see when I look at free, Western society. I see women prancing in front of men as if they are pieces of flesh to grab on to. I see women leading unhappy lives in a career climb that doesn’t satisfy their natural instincts of being a woman. I see women stuck in miserable marriages with men who take them for granted, and who often leave them for a younger “chick,” or cheat on them. I see one out of two marriages ending in divorce, if not more, and who knows how many other unhappy ones. I see women who seem to have attained “freedom” and “emancipation,” but come home from a long day at the office to still do 90 percent of the housework. I see women in this free society who hit the glass ceiling far too often because they are women, and I see that those who succeed often have to drop every iota of their femininity in their climb up. I see women who are free to wear whatever clothes that they choose, yet parade around wearing as little as they can to get whatever recognition from the opposite gender. I see pregnant teens. I see teens who’ve lost their innocence before they could even understand what having any kind of relationship is all about.

                              And all this, I see in our “free” society. A society that supposedly recognizes women and treats them with some degree of respect.

                              My point is—what appears as freedom, isn’t always so. What appears as “women’s rights” can also lead women to the most degrading, self-humiliating behavior lacking any self-respect.

                              Unlike the Torah that you describe, the Torah that I know takes a balanced approach, bringing out the true essence of every individual, while respecting the uniqueness of both genders and setting parameters so that this boundary is not violated.

                              I wish that just for a short while you would be a part of a chassidic, Lubavitch community. I think you would be surprised with, for the most part, the degree of respect the women are given. You would hear the men speak about the greatness of their women. You would hear the Rebbe’s words quoted about the higher spiritual source and level of women, about the strength of Jewish women, about the vital contribution of the Jewish woman. But most of all, you would see husbands and wives working in partnership, looking at each other with respect, each doing their own part to bring more G‑dliness into this world.

                              Words are cheap. I just wish you could witness this lifestyle with your own eyes.

                              CONDESCENSION BY ANY OTHER NAME, DEMEANS WOMEN. THEY ARE THE YARD PEOPLE, YEARNING FOR A GOOD WORD FROM THE MASSAS, THE MALES.

                                Harvey Weinstein didn't rape women because of his Jewish roots. And Epstein didn't have an island for powerful men to fuck 16 year olds because of any Jewishness.

This student was upset, scared and angry because cisgender male workers were allowed into his dorm to install a radiator. Life is going to be hard and a huge shock to this delicate little flower when he leaves Oberlin and goes out into the real world.

                                                              Ohio college student 'angry' and 'scared' after 'cisgender men' installed radiator in dorms: 'Safe space' (msn.com)


                                                              A student at Oberlin College in Ohio described being "scared" and "angry" after the school announced a work crew would be installing radiators in a "safe space" dormitory for women and trans students, explaining the crew would likely be "cisgender men."

                                                              "I was angry, scared, and confused. Why didn’t the College complete the installation over the summer, when the building was empty? Why couldn’t they tell us precisely when the workers would be there? Why were they only notifying us the day before the installation was due to begin?" Oberlin student Peter Fray-Witzer wrote in an op-ed published in the college newspaper on Friday.

                                                              The student said he grew concerned because he had not heard of the installation plans before a school email was sent on Oct. 7. He explained that the crew would likely be cisgender men entering Baldwin Cottage, which is home to a "safe space" for "women and transgendered persons."

                                                              "In general, I am very averse to people entering my personal space. This anxiety was compounded by the fact that the crew would be strangers, and they were more than likely to be cisgender men."

                                                              The work crew eventually showed up at the dorm, and Fray-Witzer described that he saw "immediately that they were all men."

                                                              "It was clear that the College had not made a special request that male workers not be allowed onto the upper floors of Baldwin," the student continued.

                                                              Fray-Witzer asked a representative of the college - who he called "Polo Man" because he was wearing a "neat polo" - who accompanied the crew if he could reject getting the radiator installed. The college emissary apparently said no, and the student left for class to allow the work crew to make the dorm improvements.

                                                              "By the time I had come back, they appeared to be done, though Polo Man warned me that they would return later in the week to check the insulation. Sure enough, they were back the next day. I felt mildly violated and a little peeved."

                                                              Fray-Witzer said he asked how other students in the dorm felt about the work crew, with many complaining about messes, noise, and other typical complaints that accompany construction projects. Others noted that they didn’t feel comfortable with how the school handled the installation.

                                                              "I understand, of course, that installations like this are routine; the College needs to improve its facilities occasionally, and who am I to stand in the way of that? After all, I get a brand-spanking-new radiator, right in time for the cold weather. But why not finish the project during the four months of the summer semester, when the building was unoccupied?"

                                                              Oberlin’s press office did not immediately respond to Fox News’s request for comment on the matter.

                                                              The op-ed has since spread on social media, with some criticizing the piece.

Lot of people say it's offensive, I really had no idea and figured "It's Dave Chappelle, he pretty much makes fun of everything and anything, I'm sure that's it." The thing hasn't died down yet though, and they did a protest today outside Netflix headquarters I guess with some employees walking out and other protesters and counter-protesters also getting into it.

                                                                          So, I figured I should finally sit down and watch the special. I was surprised to find Dave drops a lot of truth, and yeah there's jokes, but under it all there's nothing really what I would call offensive outside of one comment about a trans lady's parts being a mutilated you know what. At the end of the show Dave told a beautiful, but tragic tale of a trans friend he had and the woman was caught in the middle for defending Dave after one of his specials aired. That person was bullied and "dragged on Twitter" which eventually lead to their suicide. Dave's comments were damning of cancel culture and people bullying others into their way of thinking, and people trying to cancel Dave have completely proven his point.

                                                                          I honestly feel like many people that are critical of the "Closer" special haven't even seen it, they just know some people were outraged and they think they should be outraged too. It's entertaining, and it's more than a comedy special because it hits at some unsaid truths. I think because there is truth to it, people don't want to hear it which is why they're attacking it. It's worth a watch, go into it with an open mind if you haven't seen it yet.

He made a few jokes, none of them mean spirited or insulting, and made it very clear that he realizes they're just people dealing with their own struggles like all of us are. I too doubt most of those who are the most outraged have actually seen it. I think you nailed it with your "they just know some people were outraged and they think they should be outraged too" comment.

Under the research, a value of 0% meant tweets reached the same number of users on the algorithm-tailored timeline as on its chronological counterpart, whereas a value of 100% meant tweets achieved double the reach. On this basis, the most powerful discrepancy between right and left was in Canada (Liberals 43%; Conservatives 167%), followed by the UK (Labour 112%; Conservatives 176%). Even excluding top government officials, the results were similar, the document said.

Across seven countries we studied, we found that mainstream right-wing parties benefit at least as much, and often substantially more, from algorithmic personalization as their left-wing counterparts. In agreement with this, we found that content from U.S. media outlets with a strong right-leaning bias are amplified marginally more than content from left-leaning sources.

That's your rebuttal to a post about blatant thought policing and an attempt to silence any dissenting views? Why not address the subject of how social media giants try to silence most non-woke opinions via "fact" checkers, biased promoting of issues and views, suspending or banning accounts that post facts that don't fit a progressive or PC narrative, etc.?

                                                                                                  Do you understand what thought policing and speech policing are? Look at totalitarian states from the past century, such as the USSR, China, N. Korea and Cuba. Even when you absolutely KNEW the fields were bare, you had to praise the record breaking bumper crops that didn't actually exist. You had to sing the praises of leaders who were incompetent, then when they fell out of favor and were executed, swear that you'd never said a good word about them. You had to celebrate victories that were actually defeats, and be happy and sing the praises of the great successes going on all around you, when in fact, all around you was a total disaster shit show. No matter what, you weren't allowed to speak the truth, only what those in power wanted you to say. This is what comes of silencing dissenting views. This is what comes of thought and speech policing. This is what comes of forcing people to say black is white, up is down, and dogs are cats. You up for that?

That's your rebuttal to a post about blatant thought policing and an attempt to silence any dissenting views? Why not address the subject of how social media giants try to silence most non-woke opinions via "fact" checkers, biased promoting of issues and views, suspending or banning accounts that post facts that don't fit a progressive or PC narrative, etc.?

                                                                                                      Do you understand what thought policing and speech policing are? Look at totalitarian states from the past century, such as the USSR, China, N. Korea and Cuba. Even when you absolutely KNEW the fields were bare, you had to praise the record breaking bumper crops that didn't actually exist. You had to sing the praises of leaders who were incompetent, then when they fell out of favor and were executed, swear that you'd never said a good word about them. You had to celebrate victories that were actually defeats, and be happy and sing the praises of the great successes going on all around you, when in fact, all around you was a total disaster shit show. No matter what, you weren't allowed to speak the truth, only what those in power wanted you to say. This is what comes of silencing dissenting views. This is what comes of thought and speech policing. This is what comes of forcing people to say black is white, up is down, and dogs are cats. You up for that?

                                                                                                      Twitter posting internal data when they don't have to, isn't nothing. Tech giants have way too much power in the world and need to be taken down a peg, but it isn't because toll booth workers can't access QAnon articles.
