  • The Rise of the Beta Male Sexual Harasser

    American Spectator ^ | November 22, 2017 | George Neumayr
    The winds of what the New York Post calls Pervnado continue to gather strength, carving a hole through the beta male worlds of NPR, PBS, Hollywood, the New Republic, Vox, the New York Times, and MSNBC, among others. What emerges from this storm of scandal is a clearer picture of a culture that trained men not to respect women but to respect feminism. In many ways, the Beta Male sexual harasser is the squalid offspring of the unhappy marriage between feminism and the sexual revolution, from whose chaotic household he learned virtue-signaling without virtue. The growing pile of confession notes...

    America is in the midst of a huge, sordid sex scandal. As horrific as it is to have so much alleged sexual harassment and abuse coming to light from Hollywood to the halls of Congress and seemingly everywhere in between, worse still is the reality that we should not be surprised. For several decades American culture has been fed a steady diet of highly sexualized Leftist movies, television shows, and advertisements. Pornography abounds on the internet, and sleazy magazines that used to be hidden from view and read in secret are now boldly on display at the grocery store checkout...

    This article was first posted October 26, 2017, at Crisis Magazine.The Media-Entertainment Complex claims to be “shocked, shocked, I tell you,” to learn that powerful Hollywood men like Harvey Weinstein engage in a systematic pattern of sexual assault. Those of us outside Hollywood are not the slightest bit shocked. In fact, a lot of us in Fly-Over Country are just waiting for other powerful men to be implicated. This situation gives us an opportunity to unmask the ideology that enable predators like Weinstein.One of the most revolutionary ideas of our time is that a good and decent society ought to...

    Hugh Hefner dies at 91 and women in Saudi Arabia get royal permission to drive a car. These two markers separated by continents and cultures, one in the West and the other in the East, dramatically reflect the changing ways men and women relate to each other. Hugh Hefner was largely responsible for a sexual revolution that hurt and helped both men and women in the never-ending war between the sexes. It's true that neither side will win this war because there's too much fraternizing with the enemy. It's more like the continuous push and pull of ying and yang....

    In the 1980s, I had a boss who had gotten a masters degree in psychology from New York University. He was a brilliant man; could have been a doctor. He told me a story that explains much of what we see in society today. It seems that while doing his graduate work in the early 1960s, he had to do research on lab rats, which were given the synthetic hormones used in the then new birth control pills. The results, he told me, showed that the grandchildren of these lab rats would have high rates of homosexual behaviors. From what...

    Crisis Magazine ^ | May 3, 2017 | Stephen Baskerville
    The Christian church must confront the Sexual Revolution squarely and in its full force. An earlier article in Crisis described how the churches have been cowed by diffidence and fear. If the Western church is to survive in a meaningful way, now is the time to summon its courage and grasp the nettle it has avoided for half a century and launch its counter-revolution. I do not have to make the case that the church is in crisis over sexuality. There is no dispute that the church’s loss of authority and membership can be traced directly to its abdication of...

    Jim Carrey's deceased ex-girlfriend, Cathriona White, was suicidal because she had STDs she believed she contracted from Carrey ... according to a lawsuit filed by White's estranged husband. Mark Burton amended the wrongful death suit which he filed against Carrey -- and in the new docs he says Cathriona had a text conversation with Jim in Feb. 2013 ... where she told him she thought she had contracted an STD. In the docs, Burton says Cathriona got tested and discovered she had Herpes Type I, Herpes Type 2 and Gonorrhea. He says Jim tried to pressure her to keep quiet...

    Sexual progressives claim to be ushering in a “brave new world” of freedom. But their “new” morality is as old as the hills. How often have you heard sexual progressives claim that those of us who hold to traditional sexual morality and marriage are “on the wrong side of history?” But as one new book points out, it’s the proponents of the sexual revolution who are embracing a sexual morality that history left behind millennia ago—in the dusty ruins of the Roman Forum. Yes, today Western civilization is undergoing a dramatic cultural shift. In just a few short years our...

    On the Demise of the True Love of Friends in an Age of Lost Innocence Msgr. Charles Pope • January 3, 2016 • One of the casualties of the sexual revolution has been the love that is friendship.The Greek language has several different words for love. The love between friends is phileo, and is different from eros (physical, sensual love), storge (family love), and agape (selfless, sacrificial, unconditional love of God or another). Modern English sadly lacks such distinctions. However, in the past we were pretty well able navigate the different types of love and not read inaccurate motivations into...

    American Irony ^ | 9-1-15 | The Looking Spoon
    Mona Charen wrote a fantastic piece at The Federalist about the growing culture of campus rape. It would be, and has been, easy for liberals to thoughtlessly write it off as the continuation of a culture of "patriarchy" (here's a fun game of "get-yourself-called-sexist," ask them to actually define that term). Their solution to this has been to turn sex into almost literally a legal agreement at every base that gets rounded, thus giving some intrepid law student somewhere the idea to trail-blaze a whole new field of legal representation. ("Please back away from my client, those genitals are already under contract...

    Whether you're aware of it or not, America is going through a sexual revolution.Simply put, young people are less likely than older generations to say that they're exclusively heterosexual.According to a study of 1,000 people from YouGov, only 64% of respondents aged 18 to 29 identify themselves as completely heterosexual. For all adults, 78% identify as wholly heterosexual. Here's how the data breaks down along the Kinsey scale, which measures sexuality from "completely heterosexual" to "completely homosexual": Graphic by Andy Kiersz at Tech Insider / Data from YouGov For the study, YouGov interviewed 1,000 adults between August 12 and 13...

    Writers commenting on the Supreme Court's recent discovery of a constitutional right to gay marriage have (quite logically) cast this as the latest chapter in the sexual revolution begun by the Baby Boomers. But it must also be seen in the context of the larger "gift" left for us by that same generation. I am speaking specifically of the Boomers' rejection of their parents and the corresponding cultural abandonment of wisdom. If you were around during the late 1960s and early 1970s, you'll remember that this was everywhere . UC Berkeley student Jack Weinberg coined the mantra of the era:...

    Crisis Magazine ^ | April 16, 2015 | Jennifer Roback Morse
    I am a very committed, very public advocate of marriage as a gender-based institution. Many of my fellow proponents of man/woman marriage cite religious liberty as an argument against redefining marriage. While I have great respect for those who promote this view, I must respectfully disagree with their assessment.The uproar over the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act demonstrates that religious liberty arguments don’t work anymore. I take no pleasure in saying this. But religious liberty arguments are not compelling enough to induce our fellow citizens to sacrifice something they value, namely, sexual liberty.I can think of three reasons for this.An...

    Crisis Magazine ^ | March 26, 2015 | STEPHEN BASKERVILLE
    When was the last time anyone heard a sermon that condemned the evils of fornication, or adultery, or cohabitation, or divorce, or bearing children outside wedlock (let alone homosexuality)? Controlling these sins is a core Christian value. At one time a preacher could be expected to devote extended attention to these sins. And he could be expected to condemn them unequivocally. Yet today, even as the social and economic fallout from precisely these practices becomes ever more glaring and serious, pastors and priests seem ever more determined to avoid discussing them.Of course, the dowdy old parson long ago became the...

    It is interesting to note the evolution of our culture’s perception of values over time. The word “prude,” for example, brings to mind a dour, asexual—if not anti-sexual—person, with whom there may well be something fundamentally wrong. However, it has a very different origin, deriving from the word “prudence”—which used to be considered quite a valuable trait. Some etymologists say it even derives from the French prudefemme, meaning a “respectable woman.” But traits like “respectableness” and “prudence” have fallen out of fashion. And thus it is that the brave warriors of today’s aging and disease-ridden Sexual Revolution, without any morally...

    For too long we have been lied to about the sexual revolution. But now the mask is coming off, and the younger generations are recognizing that they have been sold a pack of lies. It’s sobering and frustrating to consider that each and every time social conservatives raised the cultural alarm throughout the last five decades, pointing out that each new manifestation of the Sexual Revolution would lead to devastating consequences, they were written off with derisive laughter. They were accused of “provoking a moral panic,” or being “stuck in the past” or “too prudish.” The “slippery-slope” arguments of...

    Early 20th century photo depicts Samoan girls preparing for the 'ava ceremony.' Wikimedia Commons If Alfred Kinsey of the Kinsey Reports was the “Father of the Sexual Revolution,” perhaps no one woman can be more accurately called the “Mother of the Sexual Revolution” than Margaret Mead. Margaret Mead was a young anthropologist who set out to help anthropology professor Frank Boas of Columbia University prove a very specific thesis: that a person’s upbringing and environment shaped a person’s actions to a greater extent than genetic factors did. Together with another young scholar named Ruth Benedict, Mead set off to...

    I’ve pondered with you before on this blog (HERE) of the disappearance of something we used to call “dating”  wherein a young man would summon the courage to ask a young lady out to dinner, perhaps to the movies. He would do something called getting “dressed up,” and go to the young woman’s house,  often meet her parents, take her out for the evening, and return her home at a respectable hour. Dating was something that one did beginning in late high school or in college. Youth too young to date were often encouraged by adults to meet one another, and so the adults often...
