TMI


My work friend Joe, who is a millennial, was commenting the other day that he has lots of acquaintances that just can’t shut up about their sexuality on Facebook, twitter, etc.   Be it their turn-ons/turn-offs, kinkiness, SJW posturing, latest fads embraced, etc, they are there and they are telling the world about it. I don’t follow people’s social media, but I have noticed that people Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham seem to have little inhibitions in this regard.  Note that most all of it is no redeeming value, adds nothing to intelligent discourse.

I am trying to figure out if this is a real change in people, or is it just that we have social media today that is an enabler. Furthermore, it could be in my case that I have changed as I got older, not so much the young people changing.

But then maybe people are encouraged/rewarded by becoming shallow attention whores, so that is what they do.

What do you people think?

    Apparently younger people are having less and less sex so maybe they’re making up for things by talking about it a lot.

    Or maybe they’ve collectively misunderstood what oral sex actually means.

    Are the acquaintances evenly split between the two sexes. Or does this TMI activity take place more with one sex than the other?

    As for trade, few still believe in “free” trade when it remains so unfair. Why didn’t elites extend to China their same tough-love lectures about global warming, or about breaking the rules of trade, copyrights and patents?

    The middle classes became nauseated by the constant elite trashing of their culture, history and traditions, including the tearing down of statues, the Trotskyizing of past heroes, the renaming of public buildings and streets, and, for some, the tired and empty whining about “white privilege.”

    What has been incremental, is now moving faster. Tech company platforms like Google (which owns YouTube) and Pinterest are engaging in outright censorship by banning content that they don’t like.

    This is a move from the “platform” stance to the “publisher” stance, which actually will create a lot more problems for the tech giants in the future, as they could be held liable for whatever content appears on their websites, if they continue on with this shift. Google CEO Sundar Pichai made this very clear in a new interview. First Alex Jones (because no one likes him), then Steven Crowder (who some people don’t like), and then whoever else they want.

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—Speaking on The View, presidential candidate Joe Biden promised to bring the nation back to an era when the media pretended the president didn’t have any scandals.

    Biden pointed out that nowadays there’s a new presidential scandal every day on the news, some real, some invented.

    “Back when I was in office, we had plenty of scandals, but it was much nicer, because the media just didn’t report on them,” he said. “It was a lot more pleasant to watch the news. The press just told you everything was fine in the White House.”

    The former vice president listed off numerous scandals the Obama administration had, such as targeting political enemies with the IRS, Operation Fast & Furious, spying on opposing political campaigns, and bombing foreign countries around the clock without a declaration of war.

    “I mean, can you believe the mainstream media didn’t touch those?” he said, laughing. “I was sure they’d nail us on something. But nope. We were in the clear.”

    “Wouldn’t it be nice to have that false sense that your leaders are moral again?” he said wistfully.

    Compared to skyrocketing housing costs in many Western cities, Japan has seen remarkable success in supplying affordable housing – even in cities with lots of economic growth. While average mean rents in London are upwards of £2,000, average rents in Tokyo are about £1,300 – even after Brexit-related depreciation of pound sterling.

    This isn’t caused by social housing or danchi – less than 5 per cent of homes across Japan are socially rented, compared to about 17 per cent in England. And it’s not because Japan’s population is shrinking either – Tokyo’s population is still growing due to migrants from other parts of Japan and abroad.

    Instead, it’s because the supply of housing in Japanese cities is responsive to local demand

  28. White privilege. What is it? How does it work? I’m a white man so I’m supposedly doubly privileged. Let’s do a thought experiment. If I go on social media and disagree with some not WMs what happens? Do I win the argument or do I get kicked off the platform and possibly lose my job as well if I get doxxed. Do I pay fewer taxes? No. Are there special government programs to give me money or housing? No. Do I live longer than all other groups? No. Do I have the lowest suicide rate? No. I just don’t think this white privilege is all its cracked up to be.

    Der Liz: “I’m sure Lena and Amy have about 1/10th the amount of sex the average conservative married couple has.”

    I don’t know about this but my pet theory is that Mormons have married sex figured out, if not on the brain. Mrs. Smith, who was raised a conservative, chaste Mormon before going straight libertine at Berkeley, said to me once, “You are so wrong if you think these people aren’t doing it A LOT.” (We were at Nauvoo, which is Mormon Disneyland.) Plus, like our friendly sniper, they don’t have any inhibitions in the polygamy department.

    I was dating a fairly fancy woman in Bethesda, in my old life, and she had a lot of fancy Mormon friends. As we know, women talk to each other about the hurly-burly. The Mormon girlfriends, all with 18 children of course, were doing it like rabbits. Sex sex sex. They have a cultural obligation, apparently, right out of our Bible that they rewrote, to commit passion. I enjoyed these women and their easy ways interacting with men.

    The conservative Christians where I live seem to eat rather than screw. The most conservative Christians are Dutch Reformed, a true subculture. They are REALLY conservative: you get chastized if you mow the yard on Sunday afternoon. There is a Dutch Reformed town 50 miles from me. They have a domestic violence rate that is off the charts, and are the subject of a famous academic study on the matter. I think I like the Mormon approach better.

    Since my Dad died I talk to my little sister daily. (She’s ill and always will be and she doesn’t have a relationship with my mother, brother, older sister.) So, I try to talk to her once a day, see how things are going, make her laugh a couple of times. She has had a very, very tough life. And, as noted, it always will be. She’s the most vulnerable person I know. (She has ECT every three weeks, people, among other things and lives alone. ECT applied to a wartime prisoner would be prosecutable torture. I am so proud of her efforts to live free, though she usually goes to the inpatient psych hospital a couple times a year.)

    We’re not talking at the moment. It’s been four days now. I got a long email about the nature of her sexuality, how sometimes it’s this, sometimes that, sometimes quiescent. If you don’t mind, I won’t go into details. I said something literate and insightful and profound, in response, on the order of, “OK, sounds good.” On our next call she hung up on me. She was looking for a fight, I wouldn’t give her one. Then she texted me an apology, and I replied, “No worries.” Then she called me pissed to the max and asked me why I didn’t have an opinion about her sexuality. I really opened up: “Because it’s none of my business.”

    Public displays of sexual ambiguity: way TMI.

    To be fair, a major frustration of mine, since I met Mrs. Harvey and learned that women and men could actually talk about sex (privately, not on FB or with the car pool, ‘kay?) is that in intimate relationships there’s *not enough* information. Perhaps this buttresses Lizzie’s point that nutjobs like Dunham (thanks for embarrassing me for my school again, Farmboy), who think their sexuality surely fascinates the entire world and therefore should be shared maximally, are getting none. While that modest Mormon woman down the street greets her man at the door at night with a hot cup of decaf and says, twirling a little harness jauntily, “I want the gag ball tonight.”

    Son #2’s mom was the sexual equivalent of, I don’t know, skim milk on corn flakes. You look at it, take a deep breath, get it over with, pretend you just took nourishment. But she had a sociopath’s IQ and a Harvard MBA, to go with her North Dakota Lutheran farm-style (take a deep breath, get it over with) sexual mien. She busted me, caught me faking something (you guess) and, to her credit, freaked out. (Most men like double D’s, in my case they remind me of Mom, and that, friends, is a total buzz kill for BV.) (Watch: Ton will say I like boys.) Anyhow, she caught me pretending.

    Well. Business school pro. Family meeting, stat. She’s got a notebook. “Okay. Tell me everything.” We talked for three hours straight. She did a 900-line spreadsheet (themes and variations.) She signed up for a pole-dancing class. Spent $5K on French underwear. I soon got texts during the day: “How about 401.A. tonight, but I’m going to feed you wine from the bottle no glass first.” I had to open the spreadsheet, locate the activity, text back a confirmation: “401.A confirmed. Pinot Gris, please.” That worked for a while. She regularly updated and refined the spreadsheet.

    So, probably TMI, but I don’t think there’s such a thing as TMI intimately. Public displays, public bragging: way TMI.

    BTW, there are kama sutra apps you can put on your phone to pass back and forth, if spreadsheets are not your favorite warmup.

    Raimondo came to the deanship from Oberlin’s department of “Comparative American Studies,” which, Oberlin’s website informs us, was “newly formed” around 2003. I’ll bet it was “newly formed.” That ought to be the first red flag. What is comparative American studies? I suspect at Oberlin it means comparing the United States to Nazi Germany and finding the U.S. coming out the worse. Here’s part of the description from the department’s website:

    The department invites students to consider the relationship of different communities to both the nation-state and to each other, ranging from issues of settler colonialism and empire building to social justice movements. Courses investigate power and agency through analysis of intersecting structures of race, gender, class, sexuality, ability and citizenship.

    Here’s a list of four “sample courses” from the department’s website:

    A ban on adverts featuring “harmful gender stereotypes” or those which are likely to cause “serious or widespread offence” has come into force.

    The ban covers scenarios such as a man with his feet up while a woman cleans, or a woman failing to park a car.

    Assholes. The fewer government jobs in Washington, the better

    Members of the American Federation of Government Employees turned their backs on Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue on Thursday, apparently over plans to relocate them from Washington to the Kansas City area.

    Perdue announced Thursday that two of the Department of Agriculture’s research agencies, the Economic Research Service (ERS) and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, will be relocated to be closer to major farming regions, according to Politico.

    I am a sola scriptura, sola fides, sola gratia Christian, which technically makes me a “conservative Christian” to the mongrel horde. But I think Ton is right, the horde’s definition of a “conservative Christian” doesn’t pair the term with fun, or joy. And this is significant if true.

    But this is way too heavy a subject to explore at the moment.

    Woman Discovers Herself as a Lesbian, Leaves Her Loving Husband and Children

    This is, of course, being portrayed as a wonderful, brave act on the voyage of self-discovery by CNN.

    Now, ask yourself: Would the media be praising a man who decided that he, like this woman, was dissatisfied in his marriage and left his kind wife and needful children to pursue more fulfilling sexual prospects?

    No, of course not. A straight man would be attacked in the press for leaving an intact, loving marriage for a woman

    Oberlin students don’t own an internal combustion engine, Troglodyte. They do probably shove dipsticks up their ass.

    BV owns a 540 c.i., six cylinder, twin turbocharged, air-cooled opposed six — running dual magnetos and straight pipes. It has separate manual throttle, mixture, and RPM controls. It costs $120,000 to replace.

    BV owns a 440 c.i. (7.3L for you people who haven’t been to the moon) V8 diesel, turbo’d, injected, presently chipped so 700 pounds-feet torque.

    BV owns a Dodge pickup with a 345 c.i. (5.7L, earth-bound Commonwealthers) that offers a listed 345 h.p.(hahahaha) and gets 27 mpg with a tailwind.

    BV owns … etc.

    I think Oberlin deserves everything it’s catching at the moment and I’m glad it is.

    We had a monk-like existence of 20 hour days, including football etc. practice, nothing but study, eat, listen, study, eat, practice, eat, study, train study baby time for some boom boom boom. (I lived with my ex-wife after she woke up and properly perceived my value.) I had to read, one semester when I measured it, 800 pages a week — and remember it. That was for a single class. We had classes on Saturday morning. I had an English professor who started the semester by saying, None of you will get an A unless you teach ME something. (BV got a fucking A, and I don’t mean A-.) (Prof finished up his career as Dean, Arts and Sciences, Harvard). I had another prof who was Oberlin, held the all-time record for pass receptions, did the Navy thing, then Harvard Ph.D, back to Oberlin for the duration, history department chairman. I stayed in his house for 20 years after graduating, but he died immediately at 66 when he retired. Oberlin has produced 2x as many Ph.D’s as any other college.

    The current regime is a bunch of SJW mediocrities with multiple oppressed minority box-checks, and everything Farm Boy is publishing is correct. They’re burning the place down. The female/male ratio is approaching 70/30, and a goodly number of the 30 are gay.

    FB has profiled Raimondo the Whale a couple of times, and as I think about it, she’s probably more influential than the president or chairman of the board. These SJWs are noxious, very, very dangerous creatures. I can’t call them “people.”

    BV – I said something literate and insightful and profound, in response, on the order of, “OK, sounds good.” On our next call she hung up on me. She was looking for a fight, I wouldn’t give her one. Then she texted me an apology, and I replied, “No worries.” Then she called me pissed to the max and asked me why I didn’t have an opinion about her sexuality. I really opened up: “Because it’s none of my business.”

    i’m guessing here …

    she’s looking for validation or condemnation – either one will appease some place in her soul that cannot find peace. that you gave her neither leaves her soul longing … and means she must make the decision for herself. when she must make the decision for herself, she has no one to blame, either way, for the outcome, except herself. and i’m guessing, since she can’t work, she has a lot of extra time on her hands to think, which leaves her brain knotted and without peace. she *thinks* that your stance will bring her peace. it won’t. but she *thinks* it will, and you didn’t provide it, which you shouldn’t.

    bless her … a woman’s brain gets knotted enough as it is … one who struggles as she does, it must be her greatest daily mountain to climb.

    perhaps it should be *legalistic* christians … different from *conservative christians.

    my ex-in-laws are the former, and mean and spiteful and cruel – definitely not ‘joyful.’ they have more rules than God ever intended.

    can’t remember if i shared this … but my dad told me that when my first husband and i were going thru a divorce, he and my mom made a special trip out to texas from florida to visit with my in-laws to see if they could help our marriage. i did not know about this trip at all. my dad said that my ex-fil spent the whole time talking about how terrible i was. i said to my dad, “Yeah, they hate me with a seething hate.” he replied, “Yeah, we figured that out.”

    i’m no expert … but i don’t think hate and joy can coexist harmoniously.

    anyway … apparently, according to my ex-fil, i ‘cussed him out like a sailor’ once. honestly, i have no memory of that … and if i *did* ‘cuss him out like a sailor’ once, i’m sure the worst i said was ‘hell’ and ‘damn’ … and if i *did” ‘cuss him out like a sailor’ once, it was over how he treated my Oldest when she was either 2 or 4 – he got super angry with her two times, once at each age, and got in her face and told her how terrible she was. imo, anything i had to say to him in response to either of those two times he earned.

    Ton’s comment about “conservative Christians” not knowing joy unsettles me. There’s something there. The conventional view is that faith produces joy. My hero C.S. Lewis wrote an entire book titled “Surprised by Joy”.

    But he’s right: most of my conservative Christian friends are afflicted, they lack joy. My value to them, in our friendships, is usually that of the man who will listen to their pain. I’m their confessor.

    The easy explanation is that they’re Churchian, not Christian, and hence are lost while they think they’re supposed to be at home with their Lord.

    But I don’t know. I appreciate The Ton’s remark. I have to think about it.

    ***

    I am still in the state of Minnesota and was watching the Twins game downtown. (They won.)

    Guy walks in. He’s a mess, 23, his wife of three months wants a divorce. He wants to get hammered, talk, emote. I was surprised I didn’t want to counsel him (that’s usually my role, at this point, the kindly free shrink, the confessor, see above). I said, seven or eight times, Don’t get a DUI. Protect your job (he’s a welder, i.e., he’s a tradesman), protect your property. Then I just left. I really don’t like talking about divorce, it seems. I’m old enough now I really don’t give a fuck if people don’t get it. I wanted to give him cue cards: don’t get arrested, protect your job, protect your property. Usually I walk around with 3×5 note cards, but not today, so I couldn’t just leave him the sum of my insight, on a notecard.

    ***

    I do believe God puts people or situations in front of us for a reason. If I have single resentment of God, other than he won’t let me die ffs, it’s this darn habit of his to present odd situations to me, to measure me.

    ***

    This morning I had tea in my ex-gf’s restaurant (she sold it but I like the environment). My normal routine is then to take a steam bath or a sauna at the Y, go buy the WSJournal, then park at the little country airport and read the paper and listen to the excellent Minnesota classical station. If I’m lazy I spew words at you unfortunates on the computer.

    At the convenience store there was an old man — old — in bad clothing and a sport coat, with a tattered briefcase. This is on a US highway. No sidewalks. He would have seemed in place in NYC; you see a hundred old guys a day still hustling a buck, each day there. Only I’m in NW Arctica, Resort Bumfuck Quadrant. You don’t see guys like that.

    I wanted to read my paper, listen to music, think about stuff, etc. The old guy sets off walking. He has a joke of a briefcase. He’s walking down the left side of the road (the correct side if you’re walking; always walk toward traffic). (Well, walk on the left if you’re of a people who went to the moon.) I drive by him on the way to the 3000′ airstrip. I cruise on by. He is so out of place I could have been in a Fellini movie. The whole picture is absurd.

    “Damn,” I think, as he recedes in the mirror. Fucking God again. Fucking hell. I just want to sit, read the paper, have a snort of Mr. Jim Beam, watch the little airplanes bounce their landings. And fucking God puts this 85 year-old man in my presence, with a crappy briefcase and a polyester sport coat, on a pilgrimage.

    I turn around, drive up. Ask him if he needs a ride anywhere. This guy is so old I think he’ll die on the highway shoulder.

    “Oh no,” he says. “I’m just going down there. My name’s Tony Adams!” and his hand comes blasting through the passenger side window. Traditional hard handshake. I notice that he’s inspecting the entire contents of my cab. He’s inspecting me. After his inspection he smiles at me.

    I have no idea who this man was but I’m sure I’ll never see him again. I am going to clean the cab tomorrow.

    no, not trying to play that game … just wondering if a different description is necessary. i’ve always considered myself ‘conservative christian,’ but then i hear/meet others who do the same, and we don’t believe/live the same things. someone once called me an ‘outlier.’ perhaps i’m that, too, as i certainly don’t fit into any ‘group’ that i know of.

    i guess i’m just destroying my assumptions of what i thought terms meant.

    several months ago i met up with an old college friend. she was in town to check up on her mentally ill brother and had a few hours. we were talking about something in the bible, and her comment, “That’s a literal translation.” i just looked at her, “But, that’s what it says.” it was like she was trying to find a way out.

    idk. Ame’s ponderings … definitely not logical 😉

    three generations … hummm … things seem to break down at the third generation. interesting thing to consider … will ponder that more as i think of people. first generation wants to change to protect their children from what they did/experienced so creates more rules … second generation follows those rules to honor first and b/c they don’t know any different … third questions it all … interesting …..

    Merriam-Webster defines joy as the emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires.

    That description is consistent with what Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:8-18: We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; … For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

    That “joy” is exhibited through the process of keeping on keeping on, in the face of daunting obstacles, because of the hope in things eternal. It is the keeping on keeping on, rather than outward expressions of glee, that indicates the presence of the joy Paul was talking about. And, in that context, this joy is not possible without faith – the acting on the promise of an eternal reward, in spite of the hardship of the right now, and tomorrow. Faith brings forth joy – an internal emotion evoked by the process of (eventually) possessing what one desires – to be welcomed into God’s presence for eternity.
