Here is an article, “Never Marry A Feminist”

I have a proudly progressive male friend who married a feminist some years ago who asked him to take her name. They didn’t end up going that route, but my friend seriously considered it.

I suppose that there are fellas out there like that.  It does not bode well for the future.

I thought of him when I read this recent article headlined, “He said ‘yes’! Why aren’t more women proposing to their boyfriends?” and when I came across this new commercial that shows a woman proposing to a man.

That would be a bad start.   Even women know enough not to scare him away.

When it comes to love and marriage, couples typically fall into one of two groups: those who embrace tradition, and those who do not. Those in the latter group believe conventional sex roles place women in an inferior position and thus seek to make men and women “equal,” or interchangeable, in order to correct this supposed problem.

My ex said that she fell into the first group, but was actually in the second.   I had no idea at the time how to handle the situation, which made it all worse.  I bet that I am not alone in having this happen to them.

Anyone who enters marriage believing the institution is oppressive to women will never be successfully married. Your attitude, or mindset, toward anything, but especially toward marriage, will make or break your success with it.

Ain’t that the truth.   An obvious question would be, “If you think that it is oppressive, why voluntarily do it”?  There is the career woman lifestyle providing an alternative. But these women still get married, to everybody’s chagrin.

Can anybody think of a successful marriage that contained such a woman?  Can anybody imagine a successful marriage with such a woman?

If you believe sex roles are a result a patriarchy designed to disempower women, rather than on what they’re actually based on—the biological differences between the sexes—your relationship is doomed. A successful marriage relationship demands a deep understanding of male and female nature.

I am not sure that it has to be deep, but it has to be practical.  The Bible provided such practical advice.  The traditions of the Evil Patriarchy did also.  These traditions were part of a successful civilization.   Perhaps they could take credit for some of its success.

A strong marriage is in fact predicated on sexual inequality, or on how much couples let their differences shine. Unfortunately, many couples don’t recognize this until years later when children come along. Because when we remove reproduction from the table, men and women do live very similar lives and thus appear “equal,” or the same. But once they become parents, sex differences become glaring.

Now we are getting somewhere.  Mothers need resources and protection.  It becomes obvious to them and all once they become  mothers.  Even beforehand, you can see it in their thinking.  It seems to be built-in, that is, they have a predisposition in their brain to think in this manner, to prioritize their behavior to obtain such.

No one told them men and women have different body parts for a reason: because they’re designed to fit like a puzzle. If you want the puzzle to fit outside the bedroom as well, you need to know how the opposite sex thinks and why they behave as they do. The mind of a man and the mind of a woman are as different as their genitals.

Polarity in a relationship is the engine that makes it move. Masculine energy conquers and cogitates — it likes to do things. Feminine energy nurtures and verbalizes — it likes to talk and to feel. That’s why feminine energy is the receiver of masculine energy. It’s why men typically make the first move in a relationship and why the man proposes to the woman rather than the other way around. The male acts, and the female responds.

Yes, guys do, they make stuff happen, either individually or as a team.  Often they aggressively and incessantly do.  This can be very useful.

And yes, women do like to talk.  Probably I notice this more because I am an extreme introvert.  Correct me if I am wrong, if I am seeing this more strongly than I should be.

Anyway, they are obviously different.  It is best to make the most of those difference.  Why would anybody think differently?

Exit question — how can so-called highly educated intelligent people (scientists even) deny the difference?

  5. I could say lots about this but I would agree it is true most women have been so brainwashed by the current social norms that they don’t have a clue about how to make a marriage work. Whether that’s their fault or their mothers or society or whatever I don’t know but even with lots of effort and work for many years as somebody raised with that type of brainwashing it is still difficult not to fall back into that thinking even knowing better. I realize that may sound like I am making excuses for these women but I am not. I am just trying to say that just like blue pill guys are brainwashed into thinking being more sensitive and soy boy is what women want women have likewise been brainwashed into thinking what men want a strong independent woman who don’t need a guy. I know that sense but I’m serious women are told this from a very young age. When everybody has been taught from a young age that red is blue and blue is green no wonder why it isn’t working. I don’t know what the solution is but at least understanding it’s a problem is probably part of that.

    would a pneumonia vaccinaction be helpful?

    From the 3rd paragraph: Vaccines to prevent certain types of pneumonia are available.

    Problem is, pneumonia is not a “thing” – for which a vaccine can be created. Rather, it is a constellation of things that serve to create inflamation in the lungs, primarily in the alveoli. That inflamation in the alveoli interferes with the oxygen / carbon dioxide exchange, which leads to low blood oxygen, which leads to organ failure. And it is the organ failure that folks die from. The reason pneumonia is so deadly to older folks is that they are usually already in some sort of organ failure that the low blood oxygen exacerbates.

    The Wikipedia article, under the “Cause” Section, states that there are over 100 infectious agents identified that can cause pneumonia. So which one of the over 100 is going to set up housekeeping in your lungs? Wanna take a vaccine for all of them?

    The better course of action would be to get hooked up to oxygen, to keep blood oxygen up and organs from failing – until your own immune system can heal your lungs. If there is no oxygen available to hook you up to (or if you are old and the state of your organs is already in bad repair), there is not much anyone can do but get you away from folks you can infect, or zip you up in four different bags and send you on your way (a behavior discussed in the previous thread).

    I don’t have objections to the vaccine, but it’s unlikely to protect you against coronavirus-related pneumonia (as Richard notes). Lots of things cause pneumonia…aspiration pneumonia, for example, is a major killer for the elderly. When their ability to swallow is impaired, they have a high potential to aspirate particulate matter into their lungs and that festers and turns into pneumonia.

    This pandemic is probably going to be what the rage head Nicholas Taleb called a black swan event. There will be what passed for conventional wisdom before the event and what passes for it after the event. In the before times, there was a general consensus that China was largely a benign force in the world. After the pandemic, China will be viewed as a threat to global order. We have probably just seen the end of peak China and the world enters the phase of post-China.

    On the other hand, one should not underestimate the stupidity and perfidy of the ruling classes in the West. An alien greed-head like Mike Bloomberg, for example, does not care how many Americans die in order to keep doing business with China. Those are not his people. The actors hired by the plutocrats to be our politicians could very well keep reading from the same pro-China script. In this regard, the Yellow Peril could prove to be a clarifying event for many Americans.

    When the educated indoctinated claim that life doesn’t start until after birth .. you can get them to agree to justify murder.

    Then it’s not as large a step for the educated indoctinated (that) claim that “WE are killing the planet” (with global climate change) to insist on the murder of the remaining un-humans. They are saving their own lives .. and those are the only important lives that matter anyway .. same justification as abortion.

    In just a few short years we went from it’s okay to disagree (aka differing opinions) .. to .. you should be “aborted” for your views .. if you don’t agrre / share mine.

    It’s not murder to them .. they are protecting the “host” .. because some life is worth protecting .. its just not yours that’s worth spit.

    Due to the fact life can have so little meaning value to these folks .. I believe .. Tear-Uh-Knee is just around the corner.

    And it’s all because we taught a whole generation “murder” can be justified and praised by the properly educated indoctrinated.

    When life ceases to have value .. you can justify all kinds of things .. the Un-Educated (dirt folks) don’t have a chance to stop this wave of Educated (ie indocrinated).

Two other things this general (and former commercial pilot) said that were interesting, one when he was recently traveling and air travel had supposedly been stopped he noticed air C hi a planes arriving and when he asked the person why that was happening they refused to answer. So he’s not buying that that ever 100% stopped. Two: He also just cancelled his much anticipated trip to Italy. I’m sure if he knows anything he can’t tell me anyway. But he did agree with me on this that it’s past containing and it’s pretty much inevitable that it’s going to make the rounds. I’ll be watching what he’s doing pretty carefully, sort of like my very own canary in a coal mine. LOL

    Data on the reinfection issue is still sketchy, but enough time has passed that more “reinfections” will be presenting themselves that can be studied. At the moment, the following quote seems to be a good summary of what the current data indicates.

    Lei Xuezhong, deputy director of the infectious diseases center at the West China Hospital, told local publication People’s Daily that hospitals were testing nose and throat samples of patients to decide whether they were eligible to be discharged. However, fresh tests indicated the virus was still present in the lower respiratory track.

    I think that we don’t currently know all of the places that the virus can hide in the body. And, even if we know, we may not be able to easily reach those areas to test for the presence of the virus – like the lower / deeper parts of the lung. So – are we getting reinfections, or have we simply failed to detect that the virus is still actually in the body when we clear the patients and discharge them?

    We are still in the process of discovery on a lot of things having to do with Covid-19. We can learn only as new information presents itself. The good news is that technology has made it possible to share world-wide to medical professionals / scientists the new information as soon as it presents itself.

    Not necessarily disturbing in a Confucian, shame-based society. They do strange things like kill themselves because they honestly tried and for no fault of their own, failed. It’s not hard to imagine the guy in charge of containing the Kung Flu offering his life as atonement for containment failure plus the associated death toll.

    But what a waste. He wasn’t *guilty* of anything.

    @Bloom said: @ Richards I appreciate your info!

    You are welcome.

    I have seen it said a number of times that we have folks from all over reading who never comment. We owe it to those readers as well as ourselves to collect a body of facts (as they are currently known) to counteract all of the garbage that is being spewed out there about this situation. See the Iranian clerics who say that applying liberal amounts of a certain essential oil to your anus will rid your body of Covid-19 – with the usual caveat – “God willing”. Throughout history, that has been the default double-blind test: The snake oil that I sold you didn’t work? Not the fault of the snake oil. God just wasn’t willing in your case, I guess. The ultimate case of “blame the victim”.

    @Bloom said: I am praying it turns out to be a whole lot of mostly nothing..

    It cannot be emphasized too much that, like the flu, the pathway to death of Covid-19 is pneumonia > low blood oxygen > organ failure > death. The Covid-19 infection itself does seem to be a whole lot of nothing, other than not feeling well for a period of time. Which is to say, Covid-19 is pretty much a whole lot of nothing for all but those whose organs are already compromised in some fashion and who do not have access to oxygen to keep their blood oxygen levels up until the pneumonia can be cleared from their lungs.

    On the other hand, if the workerbees who make the ingredients for our medicines are too ill to work, such that we end up with a shortage of necessary medicines, then we may see repercussions from that with those folks without medicine becoming more ill or dying. The CDC requires medicine producers, even in China, to report any serious disruptions to their production capacity. So the CDC should have an idea of the possibilities of shortgages while we still have product in the delivery system. Don’t know what they can do with that information in the short term, but at least they will know. And then ration. Because somebody, somewhere, is making decisions about who will live.

    I’ve been watching this guy’s blog for years (on and off). He’s very down to earth. He says why his opinion might be of interest at the start of the post. Here’s the end

    It’s not flu. This is far more dangerous.

    The biggest problem is governments. Governments are fixated on money and viruses don’t care about money. Governments have no idea at all how to control a new virus, they only know about ‘the economy’. I am not talking about any particular government. I’m talking about all of them.

    There is much wailing and gnashing of wallets over stock markets plummeting. The virus does not care. You can’t bribe this thing any more than you can bribe the climate. Oh they’ll try throwing money at it. It will achieve nothing at all.

    If it has a reinfection level like the common cold then vaccines will not work. If second infection is really worse than first infection then vaccines will kill you. The vaccine counts as the first infection.

    You don’t have to believe the end of the world flu rumours to see that supply lines are compromised already. China makes a lot of shit, or rather did until recently. Having said that I always have a good stock of most stuff about the only extra stuff that I grabbed extra was some batteries. And that beer that was on sale.

    As I’ve mentioned before, we have a civil service that appears to be running public policy as it sees fit that refuses to do as it’s told by the elected government*. Most particularly the Home Office (immigration, law enforcement etc). A new Home Secretary was put in charge (a bit of a spitfire, she is) and she’s kicking arse. Look at the state of the underling who quit running the department due to not liking her insistence that he does what he’s told to do by the elected official in change. Clearly the MSM is on his side. Sadly for him and them, she’s a diminutive woman of colour. So shouting racism isn’t going to work. And the fact that the ‘man’ is as soy as it’s possible to be, she’s still more feminine so sexism isn’t going to work either.

    President Trump jeered Democrats Friday night for criticizing his response to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, saying that it was a “new hoax” after a failed attempt to remove him from office over Ukraine.

    “They tried to beat you on Russia, Russia, Russia — that didn’t work out too well,” Trump told a cheering crowd in South Carolina. “They tried the impeachment hoax. That was a perfect conversation.”

    “And this is the new hoax,” Trump declared.
    “Let’s get this right: A virus starts in China, makes its way into various countries all around the world, doesn’t spread widely at all in the United States because of the early actions that myself and my administration took against a lot of other wishes. And the Democrats’ single talking point and you see it is that it’s Donald Trump’s fault,” he said.

    Here are several quotes from the link that Cd’O posted. I know Cd’O meant well in posting that link, but this is the kind of thing that we should be biggly on guard against. The author of these quotes is a scientist (bacteriologist), which give his words more weight than most. But he makes statements that are terribly irresponsible for any scientist to make. And it is this irresponsibility that we need to continually challenge. Being a scientist, the author should know that these statements are irresponsible, yet he makes them anyway. To what purpose?

    It’s not flu. This is far more dangerous. …

    – How is it more dangerous? He doesn’t say, that I coud see. Without him specifying how it is more dangerous, he leaves the reader to let their imagination run wild. What else can they do but that, when no fact is provided? As in, it is only more dangerous (based on what we currently know) because it is more infectious. So – per unit of time, it has the potential to create more pneumonia in folks than the “normal” flu virus. Which means, per unit of time, more folks succeptible to organ failure must contend with the fallout of pneumonia. Based on what we currently know, Covid-19 is “more dangerous” than the flu only on a per unit of time basis. That is, per unit of time, 100 people become infected with Covid-19 while only 10 people become infected with the flu. Given those statistics, more folks infected per unit of time, Covid-19 would be expected to have a high death rate than the regular flu.

    If it has a reinfection level like the common cold then vaccines will not work. If second infection is really worse than first infection then vaccines will kill you. The vaccine counts as
    the first infection.

    – “then vaccines will kill you”? How? Again, he leaves the reader to let their imagination run wild. What else can they do but that, when no fact is provided? As in, it is not the vaccine that kills you. It is organ failure due to low blood oxygen due to pneumonia due to the virus that kills you (both with Covid-19 and with the flu). And if blood oxygen can be kept normal through medical intervention, until the lungs are cleared of pneumonia, there will be no organ failure due to low blood oxygen. Caveat: if more folks must contend with pneumonia per unit of time when infected with Covid-19, then more medical resources are used per unit of time. Which could potentially exhaust any supply of limited resources. Which would make the medical resources unavailable for the next batch of Covid-19 folks. Which is what seems to have happened in China.

    This one seems to do most of its killing on the second round of infection.

    – The entire statement is not supported by the emerging evidence. Yet he makes that statement anyway. First, we dealt with the fact that the vaccine / virus is not what kills in the previous point. Second, we have no proof yet anywhere that a person showing symptoms is because they were infected a second time. What we have proof of is that our ability to detect the virus is still spotty at best. So all “conclusions” that any particular body has been cleared of the virus need to be met with a certain amount of skepticism. Maybe yes. But maybe no.

    But here is where he hints at an important point that I have not seen anybody else make: For a person whose organs are already at risk – getting pneumonia from the regular flu, and being treated and recovering, is bound to have weakened the at-risk organs more. If that person recovers from the flu, and then is infected with Covid-19 to the point of more pneumonia, we could surmise that his organs are going to be at higher risk of failure, even with medical intervention.

    It is really important to understand that our ability to detect the Covid-19 virus (either to identify it outright, or to find it where it might be hiding in the body) has been hit or miss. With more exerience with Covid-19, the scientists are able to fine-tune their testing, and so our confidence level that the tests are accurate will be rising going forward. But conclusions based on past testing should be met with healthy skepticism (trust, maybe, but verify). Those who read widely enough will encounter the annecdotes of ill folks testing negative for Covid-19 4 or 5 different times, and then finally testing positive. Hopefully, future testing will be refined enough to reduce or eliminate outright the incorrect results.

    Final point: If I read it right, first death in U.S. from Covid-19-related pneumonia has occurred in my old stomping grounds – where Patient 1 in the U.S. was also discovered (Pacific Northwest). She, late middle age, but reported (in some places) to have been already suffering from medical issues.

    Richard, I though the article was pretty informative. He states clearly why the wu is worse than the flu, and also states outright what is unknown as of yet (bolded below for emphasis).

    So it is not flu. It has a remarkably long incubation period during which it is infectious and it is much, much easier to catch than flu. If it is true that you cannot develop immunity and that the second infection is far more serious than the first, then it really is nothing at all like flu. It’s too early to be certain on those last two points.

    We can also simply observe…N95 masks and hazmat kit is not something one sees with a standard flu outbreak. For that matter, whole countries don’t shut down their industrial production and go into mass quarantine for the typical annual flu either.
    I’m curious how they came up with death rate statistics. We are told it’s about one percent.
    Which odd…since you don’t calculate the percentage of deaths from the people who just got sick and haven’t died yet. Shouldn’t they base those numbers on resolved cases (patients have either recovered or died). That would put us at around 10 percent.

    If you find a link to details about that (that said fellow actually died, and from what), please post it in whatever thread is current at the time.

    In the meantime, I’m thinking that you are referring to the report about the first person in the U.S. to succumb to Covid-19. That was in King County – Seattle. Covid-19 Patient 1 was in Snohomish County – Everett (about 30 miles north of Seattle).

    The first Covid-19 death in the U.S.death was a man (initially the CDC reported that it was a woman) in Kirkland – on the East Side of Lake Washington – said Lake Washington being just east of Seattle. The fellow had multiple underlying health issues. Kirland is the national headquarters for Costco. Headquarters for Microsoft is nearby.

    @Liz said: He states clearly why the wu is worse than the flu,

    I disagree. But we can agree to disagree. That is the simple response.

    More to the point, my point in what I wrote was that Covid-19 IS NOT worse than the flu – and his article makes it seem like it is. Both Covid-19 and the flu trigger death in exactly the same way: pneumonia > low blood oxygen > organ failure > death. That is based on what we know now, and could change based on what we learn tomorrow. But he was not discussing what we could learn tomorrow, and so neither was I. If both Covid-19 and the flu trigger death through the same pathway, how is one more or less dangerous than the other (rhetorical)?

    Liz, you say that he states clearly why the wu is worse than the flu. Perhaps he did. As I said, I didn’t detect that anywhere. But, more to the point, he actually said that Covid-19 is more dangerous than the flu. “Worse than” and “more dangerous than” refer to two different states of being. I took issue with “more dangerous than” – because he did not state how. So it was up to the reader to imaging how. It is that which I think is irresponsible – given that Covid-19 triggers death in exactly the same way that the flu does. In this context, the only way that Covid-19 is more “dangerous” than the flu is that it seems to be more infectious – although that may turn out to not be true.

    Everything we have seen in China and elsewhere in terms of hazmat suites and city lockdowns and incinerators does nothing to change the truth contained in the previous two paragraphs. All of that may be a response to Covid-19 being extremely infectious. But it is not a response to a suspicion that Covid-19 triggers death in folks along a pathway different from the flu. For example, Ebola triggers death in folks along a pathway totally different from how Covid-19 and the flu trigger death.


  112. Liz says:

    1) Longer incubation period which makes it more likely to spread than flu.
    2) Much easier to catch than flu.
    3) Higher death rate than flu
    I don’t know why you’re arguing about this, Richard.
    What are the odds coronavirus turns into pneumonia?
    By the look of things, much more likely than the flu.


  113. Liz says:

    Pneumonia isn’t all the same either. There are more aggressive presentations.
    And if the pneumonia is aggressive enough that one has to be intubated and sent to the ICU, chances of death are greater.
