Feminism is just as culpable as Hugh Hefner for today’s sex-obsessed culture

Published

on

NOQ Report writer Eric Dixon wrote a great piece about how Hugh Hefner and his Playboy Empire (billed as ‘Entertainment for Men’) destroyed a “lifetime of innocence.” He managed to take care of himself and lived to be 91…and/or was allotted that time.

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner dies, after lifetime of destroying innocence

http://noqreport.com/2017/09/28/playboy-founder-hugh-hefner-dies-lifetime-destroying-innocence/Late Wednesday, the Playboy Magazine Twitter account announced the death of the magazine’s founder — and perhaps the inspiration for generations of increased sexual licentiousness — Hugh Hefner at age 91. As a public figure and avatar for a different kind of cultural change, Hefner is fair game for analysis. What is the lasting impact of his Playboy media empire and the cultural evolution it helped spawn?

The baggage of the so-called liberation of sex is rarely discussed. However, when several full generations have experienced it, only to consequently feel its emotional and painful aftereffects, we should wonder what the long-term ramifications have been.

However, we also need to focus not just on the Hefner’s of the world (including the worst of them all Larry Flynt); but certain women that are no better than the founder of Playboy.

Analysis

Ben Shapiro correctly called out feminist writer Jill Filipovic (both of the millennium generation and on opposite sides of the political aisle) about her remarks to a piece that ran in the New York Times by a writer who says that abortion being a remedy to poverty is a “dehumanizing argument.” Like most feminists Filipovic defends abortion on demand, and openly admits to why feminists like herself defend it. “Women don’t have abortions only out of economic constraint…Abortion means better economic opportunity for women. It means better and less fearful sex.” She is not alone in saying this; Ilyse Hogue who is the current president of the abortion advocacy group NARAL Pro-Choice America said regarding women and abortion; “It’s not about abortion, it’s about sexually empowered women.”

Cosmopolitan which is one of the publications that Filipovic writes for knew to how to attract career minded women (and certain feminists), but also how to deal with sexual issues to its target audience since its mid-1960’s reboot done by Helen Gurley Brown. It is done with its endless covers of women in risqué clothing, coupled with its endless articles of sex talk. So, while men get their kicks seeing photographs of naked women (unless they prefer men and are truly Gay), it’s the women that like to see themselves as sexual beings (Lesbian or not), and prefer to talk dirty rather than seeing pics of “dirty young men.” Remember “Playgirl” anyone?

Annie Laurie Gaylor, the daughter of Anne Nicole Gaylor (both were the founders of Freedom of Religion Foundation and lifelong atheists and Feminists) wrote in her memorial piece about her mother who just passed on at the time of its writing, mentioned that her mother showed no shame in showing off her legs (in the forms of natural pantyhose and shorts) or baring her breasts to feed her babies (I take it she did not cover herself up while doing this) in a time when that was not appropriate.

The Takeaway

Even our pop music divas from the likes of Donna Summer to Madonna and the many wannabes that followed (Britney Spears, Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry etc. etc.) have been marketed and seen as women who had no shame in expressing their sexuality.

We may not complain about women showing off reasonable amount of skin these days (like Anne Gaylor did), but overall this piece only shows that women are just at fault for our overly sexualized culture as much as Hugh Hefner is. We need more women like Elizabeth Johnston who will call out these women out like she did regarding a Teen Vogue piece encouraging women to try out alternative sexual lifestyles. It is their duty to do so.


Thus sayeth the Feminists…

My Mother Anne Nicol Gaylor: Feminist, Activist, Freethinker – Progressive.org

http://progressive.org/dispatches/mother-anne-nicol-gaylor-feminist-activist-freethinker/Our phone was also used for various feminist causes and eventually for the Women’s Medical Fund, the abortion charity for Wisconsin women without means that Anne administered for more than 40 years. It also became the main line for the Freedom From Religion Foundation in its earlier days, oft phoned by reporters (and cranks). The appropriation of our humble family number demonstrates the dizzying number of controversial causes and thriving groups embraced by or formed by my mother. Until March, at age 88, she was still personally taking the calls for the Women’s Medical Fund at that home number.

And yet there are still people — some of them women — who want to impose their anti-choice views on others. I told Hogue that it’s hard for me to understand how women could be in favor of restrictions on their reproductive health. “I think it’s really intense when you’re raised surrounded by that mentality to challenge it, and we forget that,” she says. “Think about the Mormons who walk away from intense Mormonism. You have to be prepared to lose everything you know — your church, your family.”


Final Thoughts

It’s not about ushering in world like the Handmaiden’s Tale. It’s about a little common sense. Sex itself is not a bad thing. Yes, there is the pleasure principle but it’s also scared due to how deep physical relations that couples do have with each other and their bodies (preferably married in the Eyes of God) coupled with the procreation factor (child baring and God’s command to be fruitful and multiply).

Top 5 ‘Bottomless Pinocchios’ of the national socialist left

Top 5 Bottomless Pinocchios of the national socialist left

That perfect paragon of journalistic ‘objectivity’, the Washington Post, introduced a new rating for lies. We applied them to the left.

The Washington Post has developed a new rating system – the ‘Bottomless Pinocchio’ – for a false claim repeated over and over. This is somewhat ironic since the leftist media excels in the practice. While we will try to keep this to the more egregious and discrete lies of the left, a few notes on their other types of lies are in order.

The labeling and language lies of the left

Even the labels they apply to themselves aside from being socialist are falsehoods. These are people who work against the cause of liberty on a daily basis while pretending to be liberal. It’s a post-modernism community that has the false front of being ‘progressive’, that would prefer to use the judiciary to impose their socialist national agenda rather than democratic means.

Then there is the game of lying by language the left plays to excess. Time was, global cooling was the existential threat to woman and mankind, until it stopped getting cooler. Then global warming became the existential threat until it stopped getting warmer. Accordingly, they hit on the deception of working against it doing either, so no matter what happens, they can claim they are right because the climate has always changed. This also gave them a nice bonus in tarring any who opposes their control agenda as being a ‘climate change denier’ – even though no one actually denies the climate changes. Better yet, they have been able to shorten it up to the ultimate insult of labeling their opposition as ‘climate deniers’ as if people would actually deny reality itself.

These will be the top 5 ‘Bottomless Pinocchios’ of the left. These are lies that are recycled repeatedly by the left in their effort at distorting reality to the point where gun free zones actually keep people safe, no one is starting a conversation about gun confiscation and societal slavery can really work.

 Bottomless Pinocchio 5: People have a ‘right’ to health care

This is one of the left’s favourites in trying to reshape (or ‘reform’) reality. Like many other variations of the ‘people have a right to’ line, this stems from the concept of Coercive or Collective Rights, whereby people have the ‘right’ to force others to provide them with the vestiges of this ‘right’. These are contrasted with Natural Rights possessed by everyone, the right to self-preservation, the right to property, the right of freedom of expression.

Having a ‘right’ to health care, or ‘right’ to feel safe, or a ‘right’ to not be offended, generally entails that someone else has to provide for this ‘right’. In the case of healthcare, providing this ‘right’ would mean that medical professionals would be required to sacrifice their time and labour in this effort. Citizens would also be forced to contribute their property. There is a word for when people are forced to provide their time and effort to others. It’s called slavery.

In point of fact the phrase should really be people have a ‘right’ to enslave others. But the folks who pretend to support liberty can’t say that directly, hence they use the ‘right to’ lie.

Bottomless Pinocchio 4: Gun free zones work as advertised

This one is slightly different from the others in that even leftists know they will be laughed off the public stage if they said this out loud. Rather, they imply the idea with their policy agenda of incessantly working towards gun confiscation, supposedly rendering the entire world a global ‘gun-free’ zone such as the latest example in France.

Expanding what doesn’t work always seems to be a hallmark of the left. Never mind that something doesn’t function in one area, extend it elsewhere so it’ll work… somehow.

Anyone familiar with logic can easily see why these don’t work, since those bent on evil will tend to go where they will have little opposition. Unfortunately, as with the fact that there are only two genders, leftists don’t seem to be able to comprehend that which is bloody obvious. They seem to have the misguided idea that a rule or a sign will stop a mass murderer.

The facts bear this out given that most mass shootings take place in ‘gun-free’ zones. This has been the situation for almost 30 years.

The problem for the left is that they can’t actually admit to their absolute failure in this area. Were they to do this, it would mean an end to their whole gun confiscation agenda. Thus they perpetuate that it’s a myth that defensive gun uses exist or that a ‘good guy (or gal) with a gun’ will deter these tragedies. It means that they continue to put people at risk for the sake of their disarmament agenda, without the hint of guilt on their part.

Bottomless Pinocchio 3 : No one is talking about gun confiscation

Finding cases where leftists have demanded gun confiscation has become as easy as shooting fish in a barrel (pardon the pun Peta). The past few years have seen an increase in these demands from the left to the point that it’s occurred more than 70 times not counting excerpts, syndication and reprints. Repeating this lie enables leftists to keep the discussion to the next incremental step instead of their final solution to the liberty problem.

Still, the liberty grabber left persists in propagating this enormous lie. It does several things for them. It short circuits the negative effects of gun confiscation such as leaving the innocent defenseless against criminals and the government. It lulls some into a false sense of security as to the left’s long term goal for the cause of liberty.

This perennial lie is also necessary to get some to accept governmental overreach in controlling their personal property. They have used this same technique in getting people to register their guns accompanied by the solemn promise that they won’t use it to confiscate guns, after which their guns are confiscated.

Bottomless Pinocchio 2: Failed socialist experiments weren’t really socialist

It would seem this little ditty began when the socialist-left started trying to claim that a certain National Socialist German Workers’ Party wasn’t actually a National Socialist German Workers’ Party. The Left actually tried to reverse reality, making a party with a collectivist ideology of the left to one of an individualist ideology of the right. The problem for them is that those on the pro-liberty, conservative right, by definition favour lower taxes and limited government. Hardly something the Nazis were known for.

Leftists will often times try to deflect the facts of the matter given the very name of the party: ‘Nationalsozialistische deutsche Arbeiter-Partei’. But consider the words of the translator of Mein Kampf:

Finally, I would point out that the term Social Democracy may be misleading in English, as it has not a democratic connotation in our sense. It was the name given to the Socialist Party in Germany. And that Party was purely Marxist; but it adopted the name Social Democrat in order to appeal to the democratic sections of the German people.
James Murphy. Abbots Langley, February, 1939

Later on, they played this little game with virtually every other socialist regime. Miraculously enough, before these socialist regimes ran out of other people’s money the left labelled them as one of their own. Then in the blink of an eye, they would ping-pong from left to right almost overnight when they inevitably failed.

The problem for the left is that they have nothing on George Orwell. We’re supposed to simply ignore basic facts from history, beginning with the very words that socialists have used to describe themselves. These socialist regimes also followed collectivist precepts. But in an instant these facts are swept away, in favour of a new reality where Red is Blue and Blue is Red.

Bottomless Pinocchio 1: Socialism can actually work

This is a basic survival lie of the left. They cannot accede to the fact of 400 years of the failure of the ideas of their base ideology, so they must pretend it can work… somehow. Just as they can pretend to be liberal while working to tear down liberty, but that’s another subject.

Since their agenda of societal slavery has never worked, they have to deflect the argument with the aforementioned ‘socialism has never been tried before’ and ‘failed socialist experiments weren’t really socialist’ lies. Or pretending that non-socialist nations are really socialist.

The bottom line is that socialism can never work because it runs counter to basic human physiology. One will always see less of a behaviour that is negatively reinforced, while more will be seen with behaviour that is positively reinforced. The fundamental results of reward and punishment cannot be ignored, and yet this is what socialists have as the basis of their ideology.

Consider that the experiment of socialism has been conducted in situations around the world for over 400 years with the same result: failure. It should be obvious by now to most intelligent people that it cannot work, and yet the national socialist-left still persists in trying to turn that which is impossible into something that is possible, no matter who has to suffer and die.

The takeaway

In many ways the left should stay away from pronouncing judgement on falsehoods when they are so rife with them. Leftist lies keep them afloat in the sea of politics. We have shown that not only are they false, but they must be retold in order for the left to survive.

Dr Paul Lim tells how he went from atheist to Christian at Yale

Universities aren’t usually considered likely venues for people to turn to the Christian faith. Ivy League universities rife with atheist professors are even less likely than most to yield a conversions to the faith. If anything, they’re efforts are often directly focused on converting Christians into abandoning their faith.

Dr Paul Lim tells a different tail. His personal journey from South Korea to California, then Pennsylvania on to Yale, is an exception to the rule. His journey is not common, but then again who’s to say what sort of journey to embracing Jesus Christ can be considered common?

It’s not too long, clocking in at just over 48 minutes, and much better than your average network television hour. If you already believe, it may help you open the eyes of others. If you don’t believe, your eyes may be opened.

How likely is it that a single protein can form by chance

To really answers the question of whether life was created or came about by random chance, we need to take a mathematical look at things. It may be easier to form our opinions based on something we read in a junior high science book, but there really is more to it than the surface questions asked and answered by scientists and theologians alike.

For the faithful, it comes down to faith. For the scientific, it also comes down to faith. Whose faith is more likely to be correct?

Part of the answer can be found in this short video. Those who think there’s no faith associated with scientific theories clearly don’t understand the mathematics behind the science they claim to hold dear.
