“Don’t Mention Religion, Mister Fawlty – They’re Nuns!”

Religion

Reading Time: 6 minutes Another day, another fracas because I have misunderstood religion and offended others. In suggesting that the subjective interpretation of the Holy Scriptures by men of faith who have a political agenda instead of a Holy Bible or Quran, I have been accused of “religion bashing?”, or words to that effect. Religion is untouchable, it seems  – […]

Planet Of The Apes…Men In A Post #MeToo World

Reading Time: 5 minutes Just as I thought that the oppression, harassment, and exploitation of women, were part of the male genome, I came across a “non-profit” organisation that claims to be able to cure most men from being fondling creatures in underground trains, hotel rapists, and housewife-beaters, in the space of 48 hours. The Mankind Project, responsible for […]

God And Gender Identity: What IS God’s Perception Of Dignity?

Reading Time: 4 minutes By accident, I came across a document that relates the adoption of a resolution concerning human sexual identity, by the Kansas Republican Party. The resolution focused particularly on the rights of transgender individuals. The resolution was submitted on February 17th, 2018, by Eric Teetsel, a delegate for the third district, and was adopted.

Weinstein For Dummies

culture

Reading Time: 5 minutes   I feel really sorry for all the victims of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual assaults. All that these naive little girls wanted to do, is talk with him about culture. It was just unfortunate that if you happen to be a woman, he immediately gets the urge to unzip his trousers. There’s an old saying that […]

Left In The Cold – The Freeze Response And Rape Victims

acute stress response

Reading Time: 6 minutes You are probably aware of the so-called “fight-flight response”, also known as the “acute stress response”. It is a biological reaction to a stimulus perceived as an imminent threat to survival. The response is carried out by the autonomic nervous system – a control system that acts largely unconsciously and regulates heart rate, digestion, respiratory rate, pupillary response, urination, and sexual […]

Houellebecq’s “Submission” – A Caliphate Fantasia In Rotterdam

Rotterdam

Reading Time: 6 minutes Michel Houellebecq’s controversial novel, “Submission”, published in 2015, received a mixed reception from both the press and politicians. Not surprisingly, Marine Le Pen, leader of the right-winged “Front National”, described the work as, “fiction that one day could become reality.”  Michel Houellebecq’s political fiction is in nothing a visionary work, it’s just a succession of false provocations.
