Re: "Porn is what the end of the world looks like"

Actually that was the GI Generation whose liberal political influence peaked in the 60s and 70s.

 

But they have a better PR firm, and a genuinely positive narrative to leave although it is being co-opted into irrelevancy.

Re: "Porn is what the end of the world looks like"

Especially as time goes on. No one even mentions the World War One people anymore , because they have all died and have been mostly forgotten. No one mentions the 100 year anniversary of major events of WW1 as they have come and gone. The same will be for the WW2 events in 30 years. It's just the way it is. Out of sight, out of mind.

Re: When prejudice and hate meet fact

BTW, I do contribute to Naked Capitalism, for my money the best content aggregator around.

 

Yves Smith (Susan Webber) is a stodgy old Maine Republican if there ever was one. If she links any sex content it is with a broader purpose and typically with her own editorial comments appended.

Re: When prejudice and hate meet fact

I don`t know how the genie is put back in the bottle, as far as sexual immorality.  Growing up in the 70`s and 80`s porn was contained in DesMoines, the Sunday paper would have what`s showing...sometimes movies rated "XXXXXX" 12 yr old me wondered "Wow! I`ve only heard of XXX, what`s in a XXXXXX movie?"  There were striper bars around here that only "neerdowells" ...but on my 19th birthday my friends drug me into one of those places.  Greasey looking Harley riders taking turns with a rolled up $5 in their mouths just doesn`t make those women apealing to me. But, that seemed to work well, guilt of those places and looking down on those that would go in such places contained it.

 

Now with computers and "freedom of speech" the toothpaste never will get back in the tube.   Larry Flynn and Bob Guccione wrap themselves in the American flag and say "It`s YOUR freedom of speech to watch whatever you want...Be a proud American!"...They say that laughing all the way to the bank..But they don`t support Rush Limbaugh or Fox News "1st Amendent rights"  they don`t support the rest of the constitution like the right to bear arms...just the bits and pieces that fattens their wallet and steals the soul of the country. 

 

The Greatest generation and their "church lady" wives that made all our faces red with embarassment, to feel guilt if one stumbled on a "blue" magazine, have all died off.

Re: When prejudice and hate meet fact

Here as well. It is genuinely priceless and stays away from the sensationalistic stuff that clutters so many (often well meaning) sites. I read some of those, but wouldn't send them a dime as they are generally redundant.

 

Actually, nowhere else except for a local independent public radio station out of Mankato 3 that produces fabulous alternative music programming and 3 of the institutions of higher education that our daughters attended that contributed greatly to making them the successful set of considerable contributing taxpayers that they have become.

 

Oh......and before someone asks...."liberally" to our home church congregation.

An example of the quality of references that show up at NC that you'd need to have way more bookmarks than would be managablel to find on your own:

Nox, you are a religious cultural conservative from what I have gathered from your posts over the years. Anything you want to confess?

 

I think the current SI swimsuit edition has a pornographic cover, just for the record, but its soft enough porn that I am not going to get excited about it.

Re: "Porn is what the end of the world looks like"

Pushed the limits. For sure.  It not being bothersome enough to call out (I'm right there with you on this one) does't say much for any of us who have wives and daughters andvwho don't actively object. Passive compliance isn't good for a society. Allows everything to remain reltive and impersonal, and gives everybody "an out". As it goes on and on.

Mutes appeals to justice on all fronts. Fractures liberty.

Re: "Porn is what the end of the world looks like"

It's been sitting on the kitchen counter with the other mail for a couple of days. Apparently SI is hard up enough that they've continued my son's subscription even though I don't believe it has been paid for some time.

 

I might take a casual gander sometime but really doesn't interest me overly much. Lovely specimens, for sure.

 

I remember something my Dad told me a long time ago when he overheard some of the other kids giggling aobut Playboy. He said that there's nothing wrong with wanting to look at a pretty girl, the problem is with the other crap in there. I'm 100% certain that what he meant wasn't some of the literary stuff they publish for the sake of appearing legitimate, it is all the Playboy Lifestyle stuff which is pure crapola, particularly for young minds.

 

There was a funny piece by the author Jennifer Weiner in the Sunday Times regarding the revealing cover shot and how now women also have to worry about what the mons pubis looks like as if they didn't have enough body parts for inferior comparison.

 

My thought when I'd heard that Derek Jeter's current girlfriend was on the cover my mind immediately went to the stories about the Jeets dropping herpes around MLB cities over the course of his career. Made me wonder if she won't be able to cash in as a spokeperson for acyclovir.
