A Thought Experiment


To identify is to be.  We are almost there.  Rachel Dolezal and Shaun King identify as black, white people identify as Indians, men identify as women, women identify as men; the list goes on.   WE are all one big family, so what difference does it make.  If somebody want to identify as something else; what harm can come from it?

Furthermore, some good could come of it.  Breaking down barriers between groups could be fostered.  If a man could identify as a women, and get preferences in hiring and promotions, why wouldn’t he grab that.  If a white person could identify as an Indian and gain goodies, why not?

What could be the result of this?  Maybe distinctions between groups would fall to the wayside.  Why have separate groups when it doesn’t benefit you anymore.  Perhaps segregation will finally end.

    First scene all these guys standing around and girl jumps into icy river alone to pull the dog out.

    Scene starting at 7:00. Girl jumps in fully clothed at 722. Big dog easily 60+ lbs scared. She calms him and he literally uses her as a float. Must be ripping the shit out of her back. She is obviously hurt and tired.

    Pussy on the bank you can see several times watching. Takes him over two full minutes to strip to his panties to jump in and help. Even then he lets the dog stay on her back. Big fucking hero.

    When I was growing up, the message from the folks around me seemed to be more along the lines of to “be” is to create an identity. What is this that you are being: a milker of cows? a maker of cabinets? a fixer of cars? a baker of breads and pies and other goodies? a bagger of groceries at the food store? a cleaner of chicken coops? a giver of good blow jobs? All of the kids I went to high school with were these and more, some of them needing to rise many hours before school started to git er done. What you did tended to become the identity you were known as.

    On the other hand, there have been some conversations in the manosphere about social evolution (if that is the right term for it) creating a cohort of women who are able to adapt quickly to the expectations of the new tribe that just conquered the old tribe that the women used to belong to. This “innate” ability to adapt is what allowed women to survive the brutal warfare among tribes for most of history. The old husband is dead (or is my new servant). Long live the new husband.

    If any of that is true, then To identify is to be would be that evolutionary marker that has enabled women to survive. Or, more correctly, the women whose genetic makeup allowed them to quickly forget the old and enthusiastically embrace the new are the women who survived and thrived and bred. Whatever genetic makeup enabled this adaptive behavior would show up in at least some of the offspring. Those who inherited this unique social skill would live when their tribe was overrun by the new conquerors. Those who did not inherit it presumably would not live, or at least probably would not breed.

    To the extent that any of this is true, then Rachel Dolezal and Shaun King were just exhibiting a bastardized version of what women have evolved to: a group that has the ability to “identify” with, become part of, the new group, and leave the old group behind – seemingly with few or no regrets. From that social evolution (or whatever it is called) standpoint, what do you mean “who am I”? There is no “me”. I am only whoever I identify with at the moment. And my experience has taught me that this could change at a moment’s notice.

    I have no idea how true any of that is, but the stories in the manosphere show at least a subgroup of women seems to have the ability to leave what they have spent years helping to build, seemingly with no remorse or looking back. For women to exhibit this behavior when being passed from one conquering tribe to another is one thing. For them to exhibit this behavior in the midst of peace and plenty, by running off with the newest guy to generate tingles, is to seriously jeapordize the peace and plenty. It makes sense that strong men would step in to squelch this behavior in the interest of maintaining a stable society.

    Patriarchy.

    That would also explain the snorting laugh that escapes from some women when the guy says but I want you to like me for me; just accept me for who I am. For a woman who does not have an internal “me”, who is only a reflection of who she identifies with, she can only think that what the guy says is incredibly stupid and uninformed.

    I’m listening to the music from Cill and horseman as I type this. Magnificent stuff.

    To Ame: Be. Yourself. You are not your mother. You don’t have to identify with her. Be who you want to be. And understand that she can only be who she is. Can you release her from the image of who you think she should be and just let her “be”? (Way easier said than done)

    women are created to be adaptable.

    i’ve often thought that our lack of need to work to survive has created much negative behavior. if ever women needed to actually work to eat, to survive, then i think a whole different way of life would emerge.

    To Ame: Be. Yourself. You are not your mother. You don’t have to identify with her. Be who you want to be. And understand that she can only be who she is. Can you release her from the image of who you think she should be and just let her “be”? (Way easier said than done)

    thank you. yes, much easier said than done … and, of all the most bizarre things that i could NEVER have anticipated, it’s actually getting harder as i get older. perhaps b/c i know what it’s like to be a Mom of kids through young adulthood, and i am continuously shocked that she could so easily let me go? for some reason this was easier to digest when i was younger. it’s also harder as i’m getting older b/c i am still hardwired to need a mother and father, and they continue to not care and to give their love and affection to others – as they always did. i guess i thought my need for parents would diminish over time … or i would get so used to them never being there that it would be neutral. i never expected to still desire or need my parents. and i hate it. it’s the old story of peeling the onion that seems to have never-ending layers (stupid onion!). so, once again i will grieve this layer and move on.

    i see that as my friends’ parents begin to pass from this earth, and i see how shattered they are, that one truly never out-grows their need for their mom and dad. we adapt to them not being here when they pass, but not to our need for them. even when my parents pass someday, i will still be left with nothing.

    my prayer for myself is that i will live long enough to give as much of myself as i can to my daughters that they will have enough of me to hold onto for the rest of their days on this earth. their greatest fear is being orphaned since their dad has already passed.

    for all that he did to them, their dad had moments when he was able to show his intense love for them, and we cling to those memories. i have worked to make them see the truth, both good and bad of who he was, and i have worked to emphasize when he proved his love … to give them life rafts of their father’s love. they will need these in their days on this earth. i know what it’s like to live without all that, and i do not want my daughters to ever experience what i have.

    my mother is a selfish, self-absorbed woman who had multiple opportunities to deal with her demons and make the right choices yet refused to do so. i will not mourn her passing when it comes; i will mourn what i never had that she refused to give. and i, like she was when her own mother passed, will be relieved.

    On the occasion of the 80th anniversary of Brave New World‘s publication, I wrote, in a 2012 essay entitled “Brave New World (Is Here!),” that we’re so overstimulated that we’re depressed: “People have become like the famous depressed Central Park polar bear who became listless because he didn’t have to work to catch his dinner.” I noted that the book’s iconoclastic throwback figure, John the Savage (a fellow who stands athwart technology yelling, “Stop!”), falls for one of Huxley’s brave new women but “as she obligingly unzips her clothes for him he becomes despondent and flees.” Life has become too easy. “Compare the dismal reports you hear from campuses that meaningless hookup culture and midnight booty-calling have replaced romance and courting,” I wrote at the time. “Women whose grandmothers marched for sexual liberation wonder why they can’t find a man willing to commit. Huxley foresaw that this soul-hollowing effect would follow from making sex purely recreational.”

    Richard Bach was an aviator who wrote a book about a seagull who flew for the love of flying, not just for catching food. Jonathan Livingston Seagull. You can find more about Bach and his flying on Wikipedia.

    His book was turned into a movie, which I didn’t particularly care for, but Neil Diamond wrote the soundtrack for it – which I did like. There is a link to the album playlist below.

    We all need a mother and father figure. Sometimes it is our parents who fill that need. Sometimes we find someone else to step into that role and fill that need. One of our greatest needs is to be cherished. Sometimes it is our parents who cherish us. Sometimes we find someone else to cherish us. One of our hardest jobs is to understand that our parents are / were people just like we are. They cannot be anything more than who they are, even if we needed them to be.more. We cannot truely be free to be our own person until we can let go of the anger that comes because they never became what we wanted them to be. If you think about it, there is a bit of ego involved in continuing to be angry that someone else would not be what we want them to be, just because we want it. We don’t need to embrace someone who only wounds us when you get close. Rather, we need to accept that this is who they are. And, in acknowledging and accepting that this is who they are, we develop the fortitude to stay away from them. Hoping they will be different this time is a sign that we haven’t accepted who they actually are. There is a recent conversation close by about going through this process with a narcicist (at Bloom’s I think, and maybe with you?) We probably can’t ever get over the hurt. But, with effort, we hopefully can get over expecting them to be someone they cannot be.

    Crystal Gayle had a big hit with Take It Easy, Loving Me. I really like her version and the saxaphone. You can find that on YouTube. I’m going to link to the version by the guy who wrote the song.

    A ‘gender outlaw’? Seriously? Let’s take a look at what this clothing line espouses.

    CELINUNUNU liberates children from the traditional roles of boy/girl, and enables younger people to grow on values of equality with the freedom to strengthen their own power of personality based on mutual respect.

    ~And

    The dialogue between clothes and creativity/art amplifies the discussion about a humanistic education, which is gender-free, strengthens the power of personality, and gives the spirit space to grow. This is the education that fashion can instill, based on the concept of equality and respect for mankind.

    I’ve been waiting for years for opposition teams to work that out. England worked it out a week ago and damn near beat the ABs. England were the better team on the day. NZ is by far the best in terms of athleticism, strength, speed, reflexes and spectacular skills. However they suffer from the NZ kicking disease. Chronically short of possession, they kick the ball back to the opposition as soon as they receive it.

    Let’s see if they do that now against Ireland (about to start).

    Now, what exactly is wrong with Ratelband’s argument? If sex doesn’t objectively exist, why does age? If feelings determine sex, why don’t feelings determine age? If we are to regard sex as “assigned” at birth, why don’t we regard age as “assigned” at birth?

    Of course, the left would argue that age is fixed while “gender is fluid.” But “gender is fluid” is a meaningless statement. All the left has done is substitute the word “gender” for “sex” and then make up a rule: Gender is fluid, meaning sex is fluid.

    According to a recent report in The New York Times, Health and Human Services Department officials have been circulating a proposal to define sex. Their memo says, “Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth.” They add, “The sex listed on a person’s birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person’s sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence.” I think the latter statement lacks complete rigor. It’s chromosomes, not what’s on a birth certificate, that determine one’s sex. Therefore, if a fetus has XX chromosomes, a female is born, and if a fetus has XY chromosomes, a male is born.

    Ton: “Fyi I support our unilateral withdrawal from the ROK, regardless of what the Koreans want.”

    His response was to this:
    “Our forces have been there for decades ostensibly to prevent a DPRK invasion. The DPRK will not invade. South Korea is a regime-ending trap to a North Korean invasion. Trump understands this… and is the first president to encourage the honeypot and call the North Korean bluff.
    Disarmament of the JSA is a good thing (though it will be interesting to see what happens when DPRK defectors inevitably start running South).”

    I responded to his response to the above with this next bit:
    “Okay, I give up. What happens exactly? South Korea’s economy is in the toilet already. Moon is enormously unpopular. They can’t absorb the economy of millions of unwashed masses with parasites and raw corn in their gullets. And winter is coming.
    Say we leave, KJU is and the DPRK invades… lack of defenses, unarmed soldiers, cleared pathways, THAAD offline due to protester disruption, American aircraft temporarily training elsewhere due to cancelled exercises.
    Benefits:
    – South Koreans get their priorities straight
    – South Koreans don’t vote commie for a decade or two
    – North Korea regime change
    …and if North Korea doesn’t invade… well… none of those expensive defenses were needed afterall.
    But the above won’t happen. Reality is that things will continue on with less expenditure of resources by SK and USFK… and NK.

    A Plane is on its way to Washington DC, when Democrat Ocasio-Cortez in economy class gets up and moves to the First Class section and sits down.

    The flight attendant watches her do this and asks to see her ticket.

    She then tells the future Congresswoman that she paid for economy class and that she will have to sit in the back.

    Cortez replies, “I’m a Democrat, I’m beautiful, I’m a Socialist, I’m going to DC and I’m staying right here.”

    The flight attendant goes into the cockpit and tells the pilot and the co-pilot that there is a Democrat bimbo sitting in First Class, that belongs in economy and she won’t move back to her seat.

    The co-pilot goes back to Cortez and tries to explain that because she only paid for economy she will have to leave and return to economy class.

    Cortez replies, “I’m a Democrat, I’m beautiful, I’m a Socialist, I’m going to DC and I’m staying right here.”

    The co-pilot tells the pilot that he probably should have the police waiting when they land to arrest the future Congresswoman who just won’t listen to reason.

    The pilot says, “You say she is a Democrat and a Socialist? I’ll handle this; I’m married to a Liberal and I speak Socialist.”

    The pilot goes back to the Democrat Socialist and whispers in her ear. Cortez says, “Oh, I’m Sorry,” and she gets up and goes back to her seat in economy class.

    The flight attendant and co-pilot are amazed and asked the pilot what he said that made her move without any fuss.

    The Pilot answered: “I told her that First Class isn’t going to DC.”

    An agent (who, to his credit, read my manuscript off the slush pile) scolded me for “bigotry” because the imagined world of 2036 has witnessed a successful Muslim insurrection in France. Another accused me of “misogyny” because the self-absorbed Henri has become less attracted to his aging wife. A third told me that The Absolved was a “terrific read,” but that she couldn’t represent the book because of its “distinctively male voice.” She went on to explain that the fiction-buying audience is mostly female (which I will concede is accurate) and that the book wouldn’t “resonate” with this demographic. Whether or not that is true, it furthered the sense that my book wasn’t being cold-shouldered so much for what it was, as who the author was.

    What accounts for this identity-obsessed approach to publishing? Again, Scorgie’s analysis is instructive. Before New York entered its new finance-oriented gilded age, the publishing industry ranked high as a career path among upwardly mobile intellectuals. Working in the industry carried cultural cachet, as tech does today. Some of the best and brightest of past generations made their life’s work in New York offices piled high with manuscripts. But as the city evolved and the industry grew more cash-strapped, the type of intellectual who once found gainful employment in publishing left for other fields. From what I can observe, the candidates whom the industry now attracts are young elite university graduates who are not looking for money or even occupational stability. In many cases, they are former (or future) activists whose primary interest is the promotion of a progressive political agenda, and who are eager to leverage their staff positions at publishers to further that agenda.

    Part of the reason is that we tend to forget that technology is only as good as the people who use it. We want it to elevate us; we tend to degrade it. In a better world, Twitter might have been a digital billboard of ideas and conversation ennobling the public square. We’ve turned it into the open cesspool of the American mind. Facebook was supposed to serve as a platform for enhanced human interaction, not a tool for the lonely to burrow more deeply into their own isolation.

    It’s also true that Facebook and other Silicon Valley giants have sold themselves not so much as profit-seeking companies but as ideal-pursuing movements. Facebook’s mission is “to make the world more open and connected.” Tesla’s goal is “to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.” Google’s mantra was “Don’t Be Evil,” at least until it quietly dropped the slogan earlier this year.

    I had a Norton Commando (a real one, 1973) when I was throwing a chain offshore, and living in Lafayette, Lousiana and working for the Reading & Bates drilling company offshore in the Gulf. Commando: charismatic, but a bucket of bolts.

    This is throwing the chain: Note how the man holds the chain fast with his palm while 30,000 pounds of torque screws two lengths of iron pipe fast, before dropping the new section into the hole. Not a lot a chainhands had 10 fingers. The first time I walked onto the drilling floor on an offshore jackup rig I was scared shitless. The noise and power are overwhelming.

    And you’re working that hard 12×7, incidentally. Seven on, seven off lifestyle. 12 hour shifts.

    This is a better video. My job was to throw that chain and use my gloved hands to hold it close to pipe, else the torque on that chain whipping around would take someone’s head off.

    The chainhand is the second-highest prestige job on the floor, owing to risk. The number one job is called “Toolpusher”: he supervises all drilling floor activity.

    The toolpusher gave me a shot (I was just a ‘roustabout’ when I signed on, unloading barges etc.) because I still looked like a football player, and didn’t do drugs.

    Offshore rigs were sporty at that time. It was not that unusual for one to blow up, or for a goody-two-shoes to get thrown over the side.

    As you can imagine, I lay awake at nights worrying about the male-female wage gap, because girls could, and would, do this all night seven nights in a row, for a living. But men won’t let them.

    When I was flying internationally, I stopped going business and just bought two side-by-side seats so I wouldn’t have to touch anyone for 14 hours. Every single time a stew (“cart donkey”, in pilot argot) would try to steal one for a mother with a “lap” (that’s baby she won’t put in a car seat in the baby’s own seat) (of course, that child is dead dead dead in severe turbulence or a landing event). And every single time they hated me for saying, “I’m happy to move, but I need two contiguous seats, which I have paid for.”

    I drive now back to DC, which is 1200 miles.

    i’ve heard of guys who work the rigs. that’s … some hard work. i was thinking two things watching the videos … it’s amazing how much manual labor is still required in an age where automation has taken over a lot … and, the last thing those men want when they get off rotation is to go home to a naggy, baggy woman.
