Content Of Character


Here in the US, Martin Luther King is held in high esteem by many.  Thee is a national holiday set aside for him; most medium or larger cities have a street named after him, he is just plain a big deal.  His most famous quote is “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character“.   From a guy perspective, being judged by your character (and your deeds) is what they expect.  They are taught that they will never get a better deal.

But how about feminist types?   Well, they often seem to go out of their way to not be judged by their character.  I am sure that we all can come up with lots of examples of this.  Perhaps you might even mention some in the comments.  It most definitely extends to the criminal justice system, with the infamous pussy pass.

In my case, I do judge women on their character.  Often, I keep these judgements to myself.   But they are still there.  Perhaps women when sense my thoughts due to the fact that I am not praising them like so many others.  I wonder how many others there are like me.   How many more are coming forth?  What does the future hold?  It is more difficult to be of good character, so I am thinking that there will be much doubling down.  Which never works.

Reset anybody?

    That MLK quote is not a complete sentence. For it to make sense, it must be completed: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character – whether it be bad or good”.

    Completing MLK’s thought allows us to see that his quote lies squarely in the domain of moral reasoning. And that is where things get complicated.

    The terms good, bad, useful, not useful, harmful, beneficial, and so on all have meaning ONLY as measured against some standard. So, the actual statement, for this to make any sense, must be: good or bad in terms of …; useful or not useful in terms of …; harmful or beneficial in terms of …; and so on.

    What moral reasoning does one use to define what standard it is that they are measuring these words against? When people do not agree on the standards to be used, or the definition of those standards, meaningful communication and understanding stops cold.

    Thus the relevance of study after study that demonstrates that women and men have different moral reasoning styles. Men have defined something as “character” that they value, based on their moral reasoning style. Women also have defined something as “character” that they value, based on their moral reasoning style. But men and women’s moral reasoning styles are different, and so men’s “character” and woman’s “character” are two different animals, and always will be.

    “Men and women don’t think alike” is not just something to say. It is a real condition, and rears its head in a major way in the arena of moral reasoning. If women’ thinking is different from mens’, then their moral reasoning will be different from mens’, and so their “standards” against which they judge good or bad, useful or not, beneficial or harmful, etc., will be different from mens’. And thus it will ever be.

    If one reads the literature on the differences in moral reasoning between men and women, that will go a long way to helping one understand the foundation behind why men and women look at each other sideways when it comes to moral reasoning issues – like character and serial monogamy, and what constitutes a “good” man, etc. Except in narrowly-defined areas, womens’ values are not the same as mens’ values. Therefore, what they see as “good character” is going to be different from what men see as “good character”

    It is important to understand that distinction between the sexes when it comes to moral reasoning. Having said that, definition of moral values can also vary quite widely within the male arena, and within the female arena.

    We had this conversation at Bloom’s place (I think) a number of months ago when a woman showed up, discussed this issue for a while , and then said goodbye. If I can find that thread, there are some links I placed there that I might place here if anyone shows any interest in the differences in moral reasoning between male. and females.

  30. Thinking back on this, a gal I know via work who was living in NY when the election happened responded to a post of mine on Facebook saying something to the effect of, “while democracy isn’t perfect I am glad to live in a country where we have a vote every four years and that if my person is or isn’t elected there will be another rlection” or some such neutral thing, she replied literally the day after the election that there was this collusion riskiest meddling yada yada. I am not sure how she knew that as it wasn’t news yet, but she is in the news biz. At the tome I was like, “huh? What are you talking about? And if so obviously that is just speculation if so not fact.” But weird. Just sayin. We’ll see if investigations into how that happened will occur or or it all just goes under the rug or what, I suppose. Probably better, as I told her then, to focus on the next election and understnding how to win that vs looking back. Hopefully they will instead put a lame pony forward, if they can even find one that everyone agrees is “representative enough” of every sliver of the population, no matter how fringe. Good luck there! And that was the mistake last time, but obeys they think it was the ruskies than understand pandering to .02% whole marginalizing 75%+ does not elections win. Anyway, makes my brain hurt thinking about it so I am going to work on what I can control — getting my to do list done! Lol

It was written by Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein III, exclusively for the 1959 musical, “The Sound of Music,” and it was composed specifically to showcase the talents of Theodore Bikel, who played the show’s male lead, Captain Georg von Trapp.

    I think that unless a man likes casual random sexual encounters, character counts. If he does like random sexual encounters, well, who fucks character? Seems like a straightforward problem set.

    When I was a consultant charging grossly exorbitant fees, I’d say, “Speed, quality, price. Choose any two.”

    As a single man I think the algorithm is “Looks, character, sexual virtuosity. Choose any two.” In my case looks are a requirement. But I’ve had more surgeries than one-night stands, you can figure the rest out on your own.

    As a clue, I dreaded family supper as a child, because we had no idea who mom was going to be each day. (Neither did she!) I never had a fun family supper with conversation and laughter. Not one. So I’ve always solved for someone who can be a great table companion morning and night, who laughs at the small stuff instead of throwing things or slapping somebody. You people think I’m exaggerating.

    So yeah, character counts. Especially now.

    I was politely explaining last night to the woman I was supposed to visit in NYC in 2.5 weeks that no, I wasn’t coming, that she was very rude for no reason, and it’s none of my business if that’s how she was raised, and she was working outside, and fuck-all who fucking cares. I had just spent an hour on a financial problem for her and was trying to give her my analysis. She was a bitch for no reason while my perspective was I was giving her free consulting, care and concern. Buh-bye. I’ll just stay in DC with my Bulgarian friend. She knows how to bite her lip if she’s having a bad day.

    so in the maybe two years we’ve been fb friends (i’ve never met her irl), i cannot count the number of boyfriends she’s had. and she goes from the extreme of, “I met the man of my dreams! He’s so wonderful!” … to “Don’t settle with a looser.”

    BV – my first Husband worked a lot. i did like to know when he was on his way home so i could have his dinner ready, and i liked to be able to have our girls waiting for him, clean (b/c, toddlers 😉 ) and cute. i like it when my Husband now lets me know generally when he’s going to be home so i can have his dinner waiting for him if he’s hungry and wants to eat when he walks in the door. but he doesn’t always let me know, and that’s okay, too. i just put it in the fridge and heat it up when he does come home.

    but … pitching a fit over him not being home at a certain time, esp in a city, is a waste of energy. things happen.

    there are certain times when he (first husband) committed to being home for something – almost always pertaining to our girls, and i expected him to keep that commitment. i know that can be challenging, but a few times a year is, imo, realistic – especially when planned ahead of time. things like that special concert at school where your daughter is performing, and she only cares that her Mommy and Daddy are there. of course, if there’s a wreck with a fatality and they shut down the highway, can’t do much about that. he liked to read their bed-time stories and put them to bed at night when the girls were little before he moved out, so he was almost always home by their bedtime.

    after he (first Husband) moved out, he would commit to things with our girls and not keep the commitment. i learned not to tell them their Dad had committed to anything until he was almost there so they didn’t get their hopes up and then dashed by him. did no good to say anything about something i could do nothing about, and it was best to protect their hearts.

    “There’s just a network of researchers and activists determined to prove women’s inferior status, no matter what, and this leads them to inflate the magnitude of problems,” she said

    The Mueller report flatly states that Russian interference efforts began in 2014, continued in 2015 and blossomed into a full-blown effort to meddle in the 2016 presidential election. The report found no evidence that the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia on election meddling, but substantial confirmation that the previous commander-in-chief failed to stop a hostile foreign power from invading our democracy. Why? Obama’s top priority was getting Russia into the Iranian nuclear deal, which explains why his administration turned a blind eye toward Russian electoral interference. Russian meddling is a mess of Obama’s making, and Trump should order immediate steps to use the Mueller report as a roadmap for stopping them in the future

    A key aspect of our disrespect for respectable men is our denial of the fact. If we admitted we have contempt for men who marry and work to support a family, fewer men would do so. After all, divorce theft isn’t an option if the sucker won’t agree to the bargain in the first place. So it is essential for conservatives especially to pretend that the business of the billboard isn’t really going on.

    Our careful denial of the true nature of our new family model leads to interesting results. You can boldly sell divorce right out in the open like this, and your target audience (married women) will get the message while everyone else either ignores it or fails to grasp what they are seeing.

    He’d be called a sexual predator (rightly so) buried under the prison.

    The proposals will not save the government money, nor will they reduce private-pension costs. Nor is this about forcing golden-agers to keep their noses to the grindstone. Instead, it’s about offering incentives to older Canadians who are willing, able and eager to remain in the work force.

    Shifting the target retirement age for CPP and Old Age Security from 65 to 67, with a commensurate 14.4-per-cent boost in the monthly pension.

    Is retirement mandatory in Canada at 65? A quick look says no, so I don’t know why people who are “willing, able and EAGER” to stay in the work force would require such a strong incentive to do so.

    We’ve had three people retire in the last 6 months who had all been with the company 40+ years. They are all ecstatic about not having to work anymore, though they say they miss everybody and blah, blah blah, those Cheshire grins tell the real story.

    They repealed mandatory retirement a few years ago. Everyone gets CPP, our SS based on their lifetime avg taxable earnings to a max of 1100 a month at 65. Take it at 60, like I will, and it drops proportionately to 700 a month. Delay until 75 and increases to 1400 a month.

    But do the math.
    700 x 12x 5 = 42,000 for the years between 60 and 65.
    Delaying til 65 means you have to wait until you are 71 to break even lifetime.

    Many are figuring this out and bailing early.
    Interestingly the Harper conservatives made it 67. First day in Justin repealed it back, its so cruel. Now the liberals want to reintroduce it baceause they finally did the math. Assholes.

    As far as the retirees grins. Yup. I work cause I want to not cause I have to. The destress after the first month downsized. You never realize the stress til its gone. Never again.

    A student in Ohio has been arrested and faces expulsion for rating his female classmates on Twitter. His arrest violates the First Amendment, which forbids criminalizing speech just because it is in bad taste or angers viewers. A law professor says it would violate the First Amendment to expel him from school for his tweets. But even if the school has the power to discipline him for the speech, the criminal justice system doesn’t have the power to jail him for it, because prosecutors can’t punish speech that is vulgar or causes unrest, even when school officials can. The First Amendment places tighter limits on prosecutors than it does on school officials.

    That’s not it, Earl. Get out there and date. They do this because to their milieu its social desirable and elevating to be self-centered, histrionic, rude. This is called being “strong and independent.”

    They actually don’t have adversity in their lives. You meet a woman who needs some extra dough for food or other basics, she is not going to have toddler-tantrums. When I took one of my gfs to Walmart to buy stuff last month, I said, “I was really planning on only spending $250 today” and whoosh, stuff left the cart and we had a lovely lunch across the strip mall. It was a great date, I learned a lot about her, holy cow we have it easy. YMMV.

    those who have real needs are often silent. they’re not the ones pitching fits or whining – not that they’re aren’t some like that, but for the most part it’s true. i was introduced to a group on fb a few years ago – people with real needs. people who wouldn’t ask for food money until they were down to one meal a day. there’s one i paypal money to occasionally. at the beginning of last winter i asked if she had enough warm blankets and clothes (growing kids) for winter. i had to ask her directly. she did not. i sent her some money – it wasn’t much, but it was what i could give. she was overwhelmed with gratitude. i have no doubt she stretched that as far as it could go.

    when i hear people speak about how ‘poor’ people just need to work harder, etc, i get a bit miffed. there are very few people in this world who are doing well who did not have help along the way in some form, yet they think others don’t ‘deserve’ help b/c they don’t work hard enough, or some other such excuse to justify holding onto what they have.

    sure, there are those who abuse what you give them. but there are a lot of people who work very hard doing what they are able to do and still barely make it each month. they might not have as high an IQ … or they’ve been knocked down so many times in life they just can’t get up anymore.

    i think we do need to be discerning when helping people, but we don’t need to micro-manage it. once we decide to give, we need to simply give. i love what Jesus said about this:

    “Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. 2 Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 3 But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly. Matthew 6:1-4

    i quoted that b/c i think the most important part is “do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.”

    there are real people who need real help, and they are so grateful. a meal out once in awhile where they don’t have to cook … or a coat … or anything, really. such a huge difference.

    i love that you’re a generous person, BV. i have no doubt the few stories you share of your generosity is just the very tip of the iceberg of all you do for others in your life.
