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

https://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).

William Barr nails the secular upheaval of Judeo-Christian morals

William Barr nails the secular upheaval of Judeo-Christian morals

Humans have a moral compass. We’ve had it for over 2000 years. Before we had it, there were other parts that were already being formed so mankind would have a basis for morality and absolute truth that differs from postmodernism or its emerging despicable cousin, the post-truth society of false absolutes based on personal feelings.

This moral compass is the Bible, and our adherence to Judeo-Christian beliefs as a nation and in many places around the world has helped mankind keep evil at bay. Our flawed efforts through the millennia have fallen short, not because the Word wasn’t perfect but because we are not perfect. This has eroded to the point that modern society is experiencing a secular upheaval forcing cataclysmic decay of our morality.

We are flawed. Progressives are trying to use these flaws to pull us further away from the truth of our existence and the only truly moral compass we possess. They’re doing it through media, education, and entertainment. They’re attacking churches, synagogues, and adherents to the Bible with an anti-Biblical worldview that is growing increasingly militant.

Attorney General William Barr recognizes this and expressed as much during a speech at Notre Dame last week.

William Barr’s speech on religious freedom should resonate with everyone who recognizes the degradation of our values as a people and a nation. The further we diverge from the Biblical worldview, the worse the world becomes.

Should Church be the mission field?

Should Church be the mission field

There is a growing prevalence of churches that want to draw people in to present the gospel. These churches, commonly referred to as “seeker friendly” churches have been one of the biggest trends in Christianity in the postmodern world. A comparison would be the analytics of Major League Baseball. Some people champion it; others loath it. For these seeker friendly churches are engaged in the advance usage of analytics and marketing. In the effort of not being dismissive in a traditionalist “get off my lawn” way, I want to examine, giving a fair shake, this prevalent trend in Christianity.

In the early church, it was inconceivable that churches would attract large audiences to present the gospel. During the time of persecution, Christians building coliseums for worship would have been lit as candles to light those coliseums while lions were fed to their brethren in an evening pagan spectacle. During the reign of the Papacy, this second phase of Christian history built cathedrals, however these architectural feats were never intended to be mission fields, rather home bases. The post-reformation segment of Christendom saw large gatherings and generational revivals but a large church does not equal a “seeker friendly” church. In American history, we have seen some readily obvious cycles of rebellion and repentance with the Great Awakenings. We aren’t in one of those periods of repentance as a society; we need to be, but I digress. If you build it and they will come is an entirely new phenomenon for physical churches.

I am unsure whether this phenomenon of seeker friendly is the result of the rebellion in our societies or a response to. However, many prominent proponents of seeker friendly churches have questionable theology such as Andy Stanley. Andy Stanley’s Deep and Wide is the bible for seeker friendly churches. There’s obvious problems with the seeker friendly church model that stem from belief systems that counter scripture, the Popularity Gospel as I have coined it.

But the original question was not contemplating the theological legitimacy of seeker friendly churches. Rather we are examining the use of church as the mission field which these famous megachurches’ methods have permeated into many bible believing churches. The origin comes from theologically void sources, however legitimate churches use much of these methods to increase the audience of the church, but I am wondering how these methods can increase the size of the church.

1Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, 2by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.

3For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 NASB

So if the church is to be the mission field why then is the church not interested in preaching the gospel every Sunday? Sermons on money don’t save. Sermons on not being “judgmental” don’t save. Not even sermons on loving your neighbor save. 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 concisely articulates a saving message that Paul seems to have preached regularly during his time in Corinth.

Comfort

The Good News of Jesus Christ is a call to a painful death to self, daily. No work-around backdoor preaching in a way non-believers can agree with is a sufficient substitute. Using the physical building and programs as a mission field is an unprecedented means modern Christianity finds itself in. By no means, should we turn down innovative ways to baptize believers and make disciples. However, these means must do exactly that. If the church is to draw non-Christians, specifically church adverse people, in with music, atmosphere, and accommodations then the duty of the Church to Christ is to present the gospel daily.

Child abuse: CNN uses 9-year-olds as ‘transgender’ props at Equality Town Hall

Child abuse CNN uses 9-year-olds as transgender props at Equality Town Hall

Two distinct sciences – biology and psychology – contradict claims of inherent gender dysphoria in children. It’s not that it never happens, but study after study shows parental bias, abuse, or both are more prominent causes for children to believe they are misgendered than being “born this way.” Undeterred, the radical progressive left continues to promote the concept that child transgenderism is common and totally not the results of activist, misguided, or abusive parents.

During CNN’s “Equality Town Hall,” two 9-year-old children have been brought to the podium to ask questions of candidates. One such child, Jacob, was accompanied by his mother, Mimi Lemay, who happens to be a member of the Parents for Transgender Equality National Council.

Conservatives on Twitter were quick to point out the spectacle CNN was trying to propagate in their question to stay “woke” and relevant at the same time.

What? Only three Tweets? Fortunately, most Americans were either watching football, shopping for Halloween candy, or doing literally anything other than watching CNN’s town hall. It was that bad… from what I hear.

Here’s the reality of the Democrats’ agenda. They feel like they must pander to secure not only the votes of those in the community but also the large number of radical progressives not in the community, but who wish they were. This is 100% for nomination purposes only. Once a Democrat emerges victorious, the LBGTQ community will be pushed to the bottom of the Democrats’ and CNN’s priority list. Why? Because they represent a secure voting block for Democrats.

This is what makes it so unfortunate that children like Jacob are used to promote an agenda. At 9-years-old, he isn’t old enough to understand the complexities of politics. He’s also not only enough to be definitively experiencing gender dysphoria from a clinical perspective. Even progressive doctors acknowledge post-puberty sexual awareness is a prerequisite for true gender dysphoria to arise. At 9-years-old, he’s still just confused at best and brainwashed at worst.

Parents participating in this type of brainwashing should be investigated for abuse. Shame on CNN for promoting this type of child exploitation for the sake of appeasing those who hold a radical political ideology.
