Posted on 12/07/2017 6:11:59 AM PST by x1stcav
Its been a long time coming, but the bill is coming due for the hip and progressive sexual revolution in America. The sexual abuse and harassment sweepstakes we are witnessing today is the direct result of our society deciding that Christian morality is narrow, repressive, and above all, not cool.
If it feels good do it. Have whatever sexual relationships you want, when you want, with whoever you want. That is and has been the prevailing societal view for decades, and it permeates our music, art, film, literature, social media, and conversations. There is nothing right or wrong. Oh, sure, folks will say it is wrong to hurt other people. But the truth is, when you throw objective morality out the window, everyone gets hurt.

I enjoyed it. Never married.
Was maybe 25, now 49, when I met a GORGEOUS gal at a bar and drove to her house and she invited me in.
She said keep quiet because there are a THREE and a FIVE year old in the house.
I told her no thanks.
Going into the house didn’t mean we were going to have sex, but I was horrified that she would invite a man she didn’t know into the house with TWO KIDS there.
Went home and had a few drinks and cried myself to sleep :)
Survived the sexual revolution still a virgin. Married once for 42 years and counting. And have never ‘jumped the fence’.
Have always been the square peg.
I pulled point in the so-called Sexual revolution back in the ‘60’s. Then was out of action when married for eleven years until the early ‘80s. Then back at it again.
Had a ball. But through it all I knew in the back of my mind that what we were doing was self-destructive to the society and culture.
In 1996 Bob Dole asked the question “Where is the outrage?” The answer was that there was none. America had come to accept hedonistic debauchery. There was no judgement on Bill Clinton or any other form of sexual depravity that hurt other people. The moral paradigm has shifted. Don’t confuse this feminist faux feminist “outrage” against harassers as a call for real moral behavior. The feminists are merely engaging in a power grab. The fact is that traditional sexual morality underscored a higher ethical goal. Mankind had come to understand the complexity and long lasting psychological effects of sexual activity. Debauchery hurt many people especially women and children. Moral codes were meant to protect them. When these codes were rejected by the majority of society, the harm now witnessed to many was inevitable.
Very well put.
I think this is less about “paying the price” for immorality, and more about the left advancing a revolutionary goal. They hate everything male and white.
This woman’s groped thing is just another prong on the BLM, antifa, occupy pitchfork.
They have been full participants in whore culture. They didn’t suddenly find religion. They saw a way to grab political power and that’s about all this is.
The basis and the unravelling of Civilization
The sexual revolution is over and the microbes won.

You met her at a bar. What did you expect? What did she expect?
Excellent deconstruction. Nails every important point.
Feminism, a leftist organ, is directly responsible, ironically, for the attack on women. When roles were more rigidly defined, women were largely protected from hostile workplaces by husbands, fathers and the community at large.
38 years for me. Four kids.
Watching tv: commercial for liquid plumR showing lots of buttcrack.
commercial for Trojan condoms, couple in a huge rush at the drugstore picking out the best condoms, then a big run for the door.
Shave club commercial, man in a towel blow-drying his genitals.
I can’t wait for the Viagra commercials with 2 homosexual men.
We are in a society so obsessed with sex that the media can’t think of anything else of interest.
If there is no God, anything is permissible and will occur.
Um.... he was 25. He is now a bit older and wiser. Not defending him but there are a LOT of Freepers who could write about their “youth” and mistakes. :)

This is what is behind the latest sexual hysteria. It is about drunken celebrants waking up the morning after feeling as dirty as hogs crawling out of a mud wallow. Well, the chickens have finally come home to roast. Try as you might, most can not escape universal human morality.
They can thank Bill Clinton...hes still breathing. H played one of the bigger roles in it.
That is why I want these leftist dirtbags to stand their ground and refuse to uit. The Target of all this is COnservatives, Moore, and particularly Trump. It is laying the groundwork for a joking reference by Trump to real celebrity power to be the High Crimes and Misdemeanors that the Democrats and the Democrats(R) will impeach the President on.
