Me: Hey thank you very much my friend. Are you an MRA? I’m a leftwing MRA! There are more and more of us nowadays.
Stopit: There needs to be more of you! I would not define myself as a MRA because most of the MRA’s of 2022 are cucks.
I’m simply an anti-feminist. The unholy alliance between the Christian Feminist Right and the Progressive Feminist Left is going to destroy the world and make everyone miserable in the process if the Masculine Left doesn’t step up and take back what was once our party. The socialists of the past weren’t even close to dabbling in feminism – this is a new Moral Panic instigated by the feminization of leftwing politics. I’m not sure if the spell can be broken, but I’m willing to try, and I appreciate your posts on the topic!
I think you are onto something because the Pedo Panic and Teen Sex Panic (same thing) is simply the normative female view of such things or at least it’s a potential view of theirs and as you so eloquently say, this is due to the feminization of leftwing politics. That’s really what this SJWism, PC, Cultural Left and Cancel Culture is all about.
All of that is a very feminine way of looking at the world. Ever seen a woman harbor a grudge? Did she ever let go of it? Of course not! There’s your Cancel Culture right there which the human possibility and right to redemption are denied for all of time. Instead those who sin against the Cultural Left are resigned to Hell with no hope of turning their lives around. They don’t even get to work it off in Purgatory!
The Left was also all about turning a new leaf and rehabilitation, especially of criminals. We are the forgiving wing of politics that believes in second, third, and more chances. It’s the conservatives who lock you up and throw away the key for spitting on the sidewalk in line with their black and white thinking. The Left was supposed to reject black and white thinking in favor of “it’s all a grey area.”
Well, now it’s the damned conservatives who are nuanced moral relativists and we are the Manichean gods of cruelty and permanent banishment. So conservatives have turned into what liberals used to be and the Left has turned into the conservative jerks and squares that we spent our whole lives despising. Politics has been turned upside down!
There’s no way that a bunch of men thought this stuff up. Feminism is simply the Feminine Principle exaggerated hysterically, reified, sacralized, legislated, and enforced with contempt and vengeance.
Each sex has a pretty lousy view of gender and sexual matters, with each having the Zero Sum Game Rule of “everything for my gender, and nothing for their gender.” Therefore neither sex should make the rules about gender and sexual issues. These views need to be driven by calm, fair, dispassionate and legal-minded people who can steer clear of the hyper-emotional view that such matters typically stoke.
Yes, the socialists of the past didn’t give two shits about any of this. In fact, youth rights and the rights of teens to have a normal sexual life were considered reasonable views on the Left for a long time. And now here we are on the Left, putting pants on piano legs like Victorians! I didn’t sign up for this puritanical crap. I came out of the revolutions of the 1960’s, one of which was the glorious Sexual Revolution! Looks like the Left has thrown that all away and back Comstockism, pearl clutching, moral scolding and out and out hysteria.
The Pedo Panic and the Teen Sex Panic go closely together because nowadays, apparently every time a teenage minor has sex, which is very often if we look at the whole population, apparently there’s some sort of pedophilia going on! What bullshit.
The problem is if you write about this stuff everyone calls you a pedophile and says you want to have sex with underage teenage girl minors. Well, I don’t want to have sex with them. Already done enough of that with enough of them for 20 lifetimes LOL. Been there, done that, got the hickeys.
Anyway, I’m 65 years old. I’m not touching any of those girls if I can help it. I just need to control myself and I’ve done a good job of it for 40+ years now, so I don’t see that changing.
I grew up in the 1970’s and 1980’s when we had a much more sane attitude about this stuff. That’s all I want. I want an end to this insane moral panic and a return to the more sane and nuanced view of this similar to how the whole world outside the Anglosphere deals with teen sex – in a calm, rational, and reasonable way.
There was no talk of sex trafficking back then. The word pedophilia was not even used. The terms child molester and child molestation were used for sex between adults and minors under 13. The world grooming was reserved for the process by which a child molester gets the child under 13 ready for sex. The child must be groomed because little children don’t even know what sex is. Once a teen figures out what sex is, I really doubt if they can be groomed. Seduced? Sure. But most of what is being called grooming nowadays is just regular old seduction.
For minors aged 13-17 (all illegal here in California) we used the word statutory rape, not pedophilia. We referred to them as “jailbait” because it was acknowledged back then that all men have an attraction to them (and a very strong attraction to 15-17 year olds), so there’s your bait or temptation. However, if you give in to the temptation and can’t control yourself, you can go to jail.
Realistically, men aged 18-21 had sex with girls aged 14-17 all the time, and the hottest and best men had the most sex with the most girls that age. It was an ordinary, regular, everyday thing that no one cared about. The cops only cared if the girl complained and they never did. Past age 21 things started to get pretty touchy. Past age 23 and you were playing with fire. This is a nuanced, Romeo and Juliet law way of looking at this sort of thing which allows for close in age exceptions to the statutory rape law.
On the other hand, not much happened to men who broke those laws. The only Black teacher at my school got in trouble for screwing a 15 year old White student. I believe he was simply fired. This was a subject of snickers and jokes, not horror and outrage.
Another Black man about aged 35, a former football player, used to let me and my friends party at his apartment when I was 16. We would go there and smoke pot and get blasted out of our minds on wild space voyages. He always gave us beer too. He was a jolly fellow! There were also a lot of 14-16 year old girls our age who were hanging out there with us and some of us, like me, were having sex with them LOL. He seemed to keep his hands off of those girls at least while I was around.
However, this Black guy also got in trouble for banging a 15 year old White girl. I don’t think much happened to him. Everyone laughed about it like it was a big joke. He might have done six weeks in jail. That was a typical sentence for that sort of thing.
Moral panics, mass hysterias, and sex panics are never reasonable or rational by definition. I expect all of my readers to be above such nonsense. Calm reason defeats overheated passion every day of the week.
