For the Pope, A Virgin is in the Eye of the Beholder! By Peter West

     The sun rises on another day; the news is there waiting for us, of yet another move down the path of anti-tradition by the Pope, this time on the almost two thousand year old doctrine of the consecrated virgin:   https://amp.smh.com.au/world/europe/consecrated-virgins-need-not-be-virgins-vatican-20180717-p4zry2.html

“Consecrated virgins say they are “disappointed” by the Vatican’s new guidance that literal virginity is not necessary. A document released this month says that a woman does not need to have “kept her body in perfect continence” to become a consecrated virgin. The Vatican document, titled Ecclesiae Sponsae Imago, says that the “call to give witness to the Church’s virginal, spousal and fruitful love for Christ is not reducible to the symbol of physical integrity”. It continues: “Thus to have kept her body in perfect continence or to have practised the virtue of chastity in an exemplary way, while of great importance with regard to the discernment, are not essential prerequisites in the absence of which admittance to consecration is not possible.” Women who wish to be consecrated as virgins take part in a ceremony in which they dress in white and pledge themselves to Christ. There are thought to be around 5000 worldwide. Once they have joined the vocation, they wear wedding rings and cannot marry or engage in sexual relationships. The US Association of Consecrated Virgins issued a statement calling the document “deeply disappointing” and said the advice was “shocking.”

Cultural Wars Hot Up By Chris Knight

     This article has everything by way of adventures in political correctness. The UK is a good, - no bad - example of a society undergoing meltdown; a Christian doctor has been fired merely for saying that gender is determined at birth:  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-07-14-christian-doctor-fired-for-saying-gender-is-determined-at-birth.html

“Dr. David Mackereth’s tenure within the government-run health system of the United Kingdom was exceptionally short-lived because of his position in support of the laws of nature, which apparently no longer have a place in England. Dr. Mackereth had originally been tasked with compiling independent reports about the true health status of Brits claiming disability benefits. Part of his assignment was to refer to interviewees only by their preferred gender pronouns – something that he simply couldn’t do because of his religious convictions. “I said that I had a problem with this,” Dr. Mackereth told the media. “I believe that gender is defined by biology and genetics, and that as a Christian the Bible teaches us that God made humans male or female. I could have kept my mouth shut but it was the right time to raise it.” Keep in mind that the 55-year-old had worked for the U.K.’s National Health System (NHS) for some 26 years prior to being let go for holding the apparently politically incorrect view that someone with male genitalia is a man, and someone with female genitalia is a woman. It’s not as if Dr. Mackereth had refused to evaluate self-identified transgenders, or even insisted upon forcing his views on them. He simply didn’t want to be forced to play the silly gender pronoun name – and for taking a stand for his own rights and freedoms, he was fired from his job.”http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/christian-doctor-david-mackereth-uk-fired-deemed-unfit-to-work-for-crime-saying-gender-pronouns-determined-birth/

Now Feminism Bites the Corporate bum By Mrs Vera West

     I have been waiting for feminism to implode since the 1970s. I thought at the time, once feminist demands conflict with corporate capitalism, boy, I mean, girl, then we will see action. Now it is starting to happen, first with the Me Too movement, and then this:  https://amp.smh.com.au/business/workplace/new-zealand-may-force-private-companies-to-pick-women-directors-20180708-p4zq85.html

“New Zealand’s government is prepared to force private businesses to appoint more women directors if companies don’t make sufficient progress themselves, Minister for Women Julie Anne Genter says. The government said last week that it will ensure half of all directors on state sector boards and committees are women by 2021, compared with 46 per cent at the end of 2017. By comparison, women held just 19 per cent of directorships across the 159 companies listed on the main board of the New Zealand stock exchange, according to a report in January. “We’re awaiting the next report, and I’m keen to see where they get to,” Genter told Television New Zealand’s Q+A program Sunday. “If they’re not going to make progress, if it’s going to sit there at 19 per cent, then we might have to start thinking about ways government can incentivise them. Under Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, the world’s youngest female leader, the government is forging ahead with plans to change the way women are treated in society and allow them to achieve their full potential, including an ambitious goal to eliminate the gender pay gap.”

The Rub and Tug Controversy By Mrs Vera West

     Here is another one of those stories indicating that the politically correct system is starting to implode, feeding on its own nonsense:   https://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/entry/scarlett-johansson-transgender-role_us_5b3cd340e4b05127ccee3d42

“Scarlett Johansson’s upcoming movie already has fans talking ... and not in a good way. The “Lost in Translation” actress has signed on to star in “Rub & Tug,” which is being billed as an “American Hustle”–like mob drama. Directed by Rupert Sanders, the film is based on the life of Dante “Tex” Gill (to be played by Johansson), who ran an empire of massage parlors in Pittsburgh’s underground sex industry in the 1970s. While Gill’s gender identity has been described differently in various publications, most believe the crime boss identified as transgender. After news of Johansson’s casting broke Monday, many people expressed frustration on social media that a cisgender performer has once again been hired for a trans role. “Look, I’ve really liked Scarlett Johansson in some of her films, but I think the actor playing a trans man should BE a trans man if at all possible,” one person tweeted, adding that the actress “seems to need to learn that not ALL roles belong to her.” Wrote another, “Scarlett Johansson fancies herself intellectual but she refuses to learn anything.”

The Barbecue is Sexist! Throw Another Libtard on the Barbie! By Mrs Vera West

     No, no, I don’t mean this literally, like the Left would, only as a literary metaphor,   I just want to work in the Paul Hogan BBQ  theme:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95OovSKEtfs    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/jul/19/barbecue-normal-men-sexist   http://www.dailylife.com.au/news-and-views/dl-opinion/the-sexual-politics-of-meat-20130320-2gfx0.html

     The point being made here is that men get together over the BBQing of meat, and that is sexist because anything that men do that feminists don’t like is sexist. Well, the best refutation of this is for men everywhere to get out and have lots of men-dominated BBQs, eating mountains of red meat, entire steers in fact. I will forget about health issues just to see this. Then, maybe men can regain some manhood and fight back against al the nonsense that we write about to warn people, daily.

Feminists Once Opposed Abortion (and Some Still Do) By Mrs Vera West

     This I found interesting; older Feminist once opposed abortion, seeing abortion as contrary to women’s rights.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-abortion_feminism#19th-century_feminists

“Feminist anti-abortion groups say they are continuing the tradition of 19th-century women’s rights activists such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Matilda Joslyn Gage, Victoria Woodhull, Elizabeth Blackwell, and Alice Paul who considered abortion to be an evil forced upon women by men. The newspaper, The Revolution, published by Susan B. Anthony and Stanton, carried letters, essays and editorials debating many issues of the day, including articles decrying “child murder” and “infanticide.” According to historians A. Kennedy and K. D. Mary, Alice Paul felt that abortion was the “ultimate exploitation of women” and worried about female babies being aborted. Kennedy and Mary also say that Elizabeth Blackwell, the first female doctor in the United States, became a doctor because of her passionate hatred for abortion.[16] By way of criticism, however, sociologists Nicole Beisel and Tamara Kay have written that white Anglo-Saxon Protestants (WASPs) in the US were worried that continued abortions by their kind would endanger their position at the top of society’s hierarchy, especially fearing the influx of Irish Catholics, but also concerned about African Americans, and describe Anthony and Stanton as part of this reactionary racial stance.

“Sexist” Men are Sexiest … What! By Mrs Vera West

     Feminists are going to hate this, especially since this sort of red pill material is increasingly getting out in the mainstream press:  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-5908839/Women-hard-wired-meaning-sexist-men-attractive.html

“Women are more attracted to men who are sexist because they think they are more willing to protect them, provide for them and commit to a relationship, scientists say. Men who are considered to be sexist in a well-meaning way – for example if they are chivalrous or think women need a man to protect them – may be more attractive. Even though women find these men patronising and can feel undermined by them, they are more likely to want to couple up with them than with men who don’t give them special treatment. Researchers say women may be hard-wired to think the benefits of being with a kind but sexist man outweigh the downsides. The scientists maintain that, despite romantic and flattering elements of the relationship, even well-meaning sexism reinforces the idea women are inferior. And even women who consider themselves strong feminists showed the same preferences in the study by British and US researchers.”

Walking Away from Libtardism By Chris Knight

     With America becoming increasingly polarised, leading up to Civil War 2.0, as many sites have discussed, there is a taking of sides. In particular, some are choosing wisely to walk right away from the Left, as fast as their legs can carry them:  https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/07/01/watch-walkaway-movement-to-abandon-liberalism-goes-viral/

“The #Walkaway movement that began with a popular Facebook video featuring a gay hairdresser in New York City explaining why he was leaving the Democratic Party has quickly morphed into a major force on social media and beyond. According to an article last Thursday in the Epoch Times, some five million people on Facebook and YouTube have seen the groundbreaking video showing a “very handsome gay man” who describes his awakening to the inanities of liberalism and the Democratic Party. “Once upon a time, I was a liberal. Well, to be honest, less than a year ago, I was still a liberal,” begins Brandon Straka, the unlikely face of the new “silent minority” of Americans. “I reject a system which allows an ambitious, misinformed and dogmatic mob to suppress free speech, create false narratives, and apathetically steamroll over the truth,” he says. “I reject hate.” Good for him.

Where the West Goes (Down) from Here By Chris Knight

     The fall of the modern “Roman” Empire, the West, is being played out in various ways, such as through political correctness overdrive, and decadence to match the decay, seen very clearly in Justin Trudeau’s brave new world of Canadian:  https://www.rt.com/news/431245-trudeau-canada-liberal-policy/

“Ottawa has recently shaken things up as both chambers of the Canadian parliament passed a bill legalizing the recreational use of marijuana as well as its cultivation, including home growth. The legislation that made Canada the first Western country to fully decriminalize pot was actively promoted by Trudeau’s ruling Liberal Party for quite some time. But that’s not the first move Canada’s recently made that might seem a little extravagant. It appears to be on a spree of overly liberal political decisions, many of which ended up in controversy. Just about a week ago, a Canadian court recognized two men in a polyamorous relationship with a woman as legal parents of a child in the first such case ever. This radical change in attitude when it comes to the idea of family has probably yet to sink in, while some other initiatives of the Canadian officials have already garnered discontent.

Drug Dealers Executed in China: Where are the Western Leftoid Protestors? By Tom North

     President Trump seeks to control borders in a way much softer than China does, but the progressives are not on the streets protesting against China. Why? Well, China is non-white, and the game of political correctness is just designed by the elites to control whites, nobody else. Consider that China executes drug dealers in front of children, as a social lesson, but the US left worry that child illegals are separated from their illegal parents, who illegally sent them here in the first place, illegally. As Jim goad said:

“since when did leftists care about breaking up families? That’s their MAIN GOAL. It’s rancidly ironic to watch the same sad crew who livestream their abortions on Facebook suddenly bawling crocodile tears about two-year-olds they will never have to meet, feed, nor raise.”

Degenerate of the Year Award! By Peter West

     This may get my vote for degenerate of the year award, bringing together a unique combination of all of the high point scoring categories of filth, such as the ultra-young, near-baby paedophilia stuff, mixed with the pinnacle of political correctness:  https://www.rt.com/usa/431131-child-porn-activist-arrest/

“A co-founder of a sexual violence awareness group, who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2015, has been arrested on charges of child pornography and attempting to sexually exploit children as young as two years old. Joel Davis, who helped found Youth to End Sexual Violence and was chairman of the International Campaign to Stop Rape and Gender Violence in Conflict, was arrested Tuesday in Manhattan on charges of enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity, attempted sexual exploitation of a minor, and possession, receipt and distribution of child pornography. Davis reportedly exchanged text messages with undercover law enforcement officers for several weeks in June, in which he stated that he was sexually interested in children of all ages (“0+”) and sent the officers sexually explicit photographs of infants and toddlers, including photographs in which they were engaged in sexual activity with adults. He also discussed his intention to engage in sexual activity with the nine-year-old daughter of the undercover officer and with the purported two-year-old daughter of the undercover officer’s girlfriend.”

Milo Loses It: Civil War II Stress? By Chris Knight

     Gay Alt Right dynamo Milo Yiannopoulos, perhaps in jest, perhaps out of utter frustration, has called for death squads to gun down journalists. Could there be a more stupid, “shoot oneself in the foot” thing to say? Wasn’t the narrative that the extreme Left were the violent ones, and here we have this self-defeating, immoral, illegal,  nonsense:  http://observer.com/2018/06/milo-yiannopoulos-encourages-vigilantes-start-gunning-journalists-down/

“Milo Yiannopoulos has started issuing reporters threatening messages when asked to comment for stories. “I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight,” the right-wing nationalist told Observer over text message, in response to a longer feature in development about an Upper East Side restaurant he is said to frequent. When asked to elaborate on who specifically had upset him, Yiannopoulos explained that the statement was his “standard response to a request for comment.” Yiannopoulos also sent the message to The Daily Beast’s Will Sommer in an article examining the struggling U.K. Independence Party, which the conservative commentator is reportedly seeking to join as part of, what an Info Wars host describes as, a “soft coup” lead by nationalist figures. Yiannopoulos posted a picture on Instagram of the veiled threat issued to Sommer, captioning it “where is the lie.”

The Height from Which Manhood has Fallen By John Steele, Ageing Man of Steel

     Here is a literary piece lamenting about the fall of modern man, from once being a warrior, to now simply selling consumer goods. It is worth a quick read:  https://local.theonion.com/[object%20Object

     The problem with this sort of article is that the man in question seems to be actually doing quite well, for at least he has a job. A starker view of reality might entail examining the harms that feminism has done as part of it tradition of critique, in eliminating men from the workplace:  https://www.counter-currents.com/2018/06/a-man-out-of-season-ludovicis-the-confessions-of-an-anti-feminist/

Feminism Pushed to Peak Academic Absurdity By James Reed

     More absurdities from our friends, the universities, full of Arts/Farts/Humanities departments where the-to-be described sort of bs is freely cultivated. Unfortunately, normal manure is natural and helps the garden grow, but the manure produced by the modern university is highly toxic and quite dangerous to life and society. I submit to your consideration a prime example of academic research in the Humanities/Social Sciences:  http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/06/20/academic-journal-publishes-study-on-dog-rape-culture-claims-female-dogs-are-oppressed/

“A women’s studies researcher says she examined the genitals of 10,000 dogs for her study on canine “rape culture” this month. The journal Gender, Place, and Culture, is a monthly peer-reviewed publication that focuses on issues of feminist geography. In 2015, it was ranked the thirteenth most influential women’s studies academic journal in the world. This year, the journal published an unusual piece by researcher Helen Wilson about “rape culture” in “urban dog parks.” The article, titled “Human reactions to rape culture and queer performativity at urban dog parks in Portland, Oregon,” astonishingly argues that female dogs suffer oppression at the paws of male dogs and that humans are indifferent to violence between dogs. In what must have been an attempt to reach peak academic absurdity, Wilson says that she examined the genitals of almost 10,000 dogs during her observational study into canine “rape culture.” “The usual caveats of observational research also apply here,” Wilson wrote. “While I closely and respectfully examined the genitals of slightly fewer than ten thousand dogs, being careful not to cause alarm and moving away if any dog appeared uncomfortable, there is some relevant margin of error concerning my observations about their gender in some instances.”

Affirmative Action Overdrive; The Next Level By Chris Knight

     No doubt, there is a  new wave of affirmative action is just around the corner for Australia, since we are but a few years behind the US, so it is wise to keep a worried eye on all that is happening over the stagnant pond:  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-06-20-harvard-medical-school-white-doctors-not-welcome-here-anymore-school-to-focus-on-putting-people-of-color-in-power.html

“The thing about being a “progressive” is that sooner or later, you discover you’re never quite radical enough to keep up with the “diversity” demands that dictate Leftist policies. Harvard Medical School, for example, has just announced it is ashamed of its white graduates who become doctors, and the school is in the process of removing photos of white doctors solely because they are people with white skin. “Dr. Betsy Nabel, the hospital’s president, told The Boston Globe last week that the portraits do not reflect the diversity of students at the medical school,” reports Campus Reform. “[she] suggested that so many portraits of white males may make medical students uncomfortable.” The solution? Eliminate white doctors from the halls of the school. The new priority for Harvard Medical School, its president now admits, is “putting people of color in power.” This means, of course, granting scholarships, raises and professorships to people based solely on the color of their skin rather than the merit of their actions. In other words, Harvard Medical School is now openly admitting it’s going to start producing waves of doctors who aren’t the most qualified. But they will possess certain superficial qualities — skin color, sexual orientation, gender, etc. — that qualify as “diversity” in the minds of Harvard overlords.”

The Sound of, Not Silence, But Sex Attacks By Mrs Vera West

     Another update on some of the exciting cultural events not happening in Sweden, due to sex attacks, which the mainstream media denies are significant, or show any sort of migration problem:   http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/06/21/swedish-bravalla-music-festival-shuts-down-good-following-wave-sex-attacks-previous-years/

“The organisers of Sweden’s largest music festival have announced that the event will come to a close after cancelling this year’s festival following a wave of sex attacks last year. Organisers FKP Scorpio announced that there are no plans to put on another Bråvalla festival again this after speculation that the festival may occur in 2019 despite being cancelled this year, Norrköpings Tidningar reports. Kajsa Apelqvist, who heads public relations for the organisation, said: “It’s a very disappointing decision to take, but the overall picture we have is that we can not develop the festival in the way we want to be relevant to our visitors in the future.” When asked about the wave of sex attacks at the festival, which resulted in the festival being cancelled this year, Apelqvist said: “We have always claimed that it is not a festival problem but a social problem. How we ensure our visitors’ safety is something we are constantly developing, and that’s something we’ll never finish.”

US Whites Dying Out; Is That Your Plan? By Charles Taylor

     The liberal elite get really excited about the idea that not only are whites fast becoming a minority, but are dying out, thanks to women’s rib, sorry Adam, I mean “lib,” and the rest of the decadent culture modern cancer capitalism mixed with cultural Marxism, has created:  https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/20/us/white-minority-population.html

“Deaths now outnumber births among white people in more than half the states in the country, demographers have found, signaling what could be a faster-than-expected transition to a future in which whites are no longer a majority of the American population. The Census Bureau has projected that whites could drop below 50 percent of the population around 2045, a relatively slow-moving change that has been years in the making. But a new report this week found that whites are dying faster than they are being born now in 26 states, up from 17 just two years earlier, and demographers say that shift might come even sooner. “It’s happening a lot faster than we thought,” said Rogelio Sáenz, a demographer at the University of Texas at San Antonio and a co-author of the report. It examines the period from 1999 to 2016 using data from the National Center for Health Statistics, the federal agency that tracks births and deaths. He said he was so surprised at the finding that at first he thought it was a mistake.

The Legacy of the Planned Destruction of Manhood By James Reed

     We have heard it all before, and liberals fall over themselves in excitement about the displacement of men from the workforce, and an older book dealing with this is Hanna Rosin, The End of Men and the Rise of Women, (Riverhead boks, 2012). Like that triggering title? Even under patriarchy, there was never a “ha ha” gotcha type of approach to things.   http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/females-are-outperforming-males-on-every-educational-level-and-that-has-staggering-implications-for-the-future-of-our-society_06212018

“Dr. Michael Thompson told CBS News, all across America girls are outperforming boys at every educational level… “Girls outperform boys in elementary school, middle school, high school, and college, and graduate school,” says Dr. Michael Thompson, a school psychologist who writes about the academic problems of boys in his book, Raising Cain. He says that after decades of special attention, girls are soaring, while boys are stagnating. “Girls are being told, ‘Go for it, you can do it. Go for it, you can do it.’ They are getting an immense amount of support,” he says. “Boys hear that the way to shine is athletically. And boys get a lot of mixed messages about what it means to be masculine and what it means to be a student. Does being a good student make you a real man? I don’t think so… It is not cool.” Perhaps one of the big reasons why young males are so drawn to sports is because it allows them to do the sorts of things the come naturally to males. Sporting events allow young males to engage in battle, to hunt and to conquer. Yes, it is a simulated environment, but sporting events really do bring out something primal in young boys.”

Wait! Now I See It! By Peter West

     What’s all this doom and gloom stuff here, as if we and our culture are  under attack? People must really be in a bad mood this week. Is it lack of sunlight and vitamin D in Melbourne? Or, is it just  tin foil (or is it aluminium foil?) paranoia? In fact, the future is so bright that we will have to wear shades:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NZKLZmz4kA    https://www.townandcountrymag.com/society/tradition/a21581131/queen-elizabeth-lord-ivar-mountbatten-first-gay-royal-wedding/    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5849971/Royal-familys-gay-wedding-story-Queens-cousin-Lord-Ivar-Mountbatten.html

“The royal family is having quite the year. This spring brought the birth of Prince Louis and the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Zara Tindall is due with her baby, the Queen’s great-grandchild, any day now, and Princess Eugenie, the daughter of Prince Andrew will wed her fiancé Jack Brooksbank in October. But another member of the royal family just shared he’ll be tying the knot before Eugenie walks down the aisle. The Queen’s third cousin once removed, Lord Ivar Mountbatten, has announced he will marry his longtime partner James Coyle this summer. It will mark the extended royal family’s first same-sex marriage. “We’ll be pronounced partners in marriage, but the ceremony itself will be very small. It’s just for the girls and close family and friends,” Coyle explained to the Daily Mail. …While Queen has yet to comment specifically on her relative’s wedding, she has made statements in support of LGBTQ rights in the U.K. in the past. “My government will make further progress to tackle the gender pay gap and discrimination against people on the basis of their race, faith, gender, disability, or sexual orientation,” she said during her speech at the State Opening of Parliament last summer.”
