The Aaron Clarey Literary Canon. Odds are good Aaron Clarey has already written a book about that.
The story of my bike ride home from Lory State Park.
Judgy Bitch wrote something you should read.
When researchers looked at search and view data for Porn Hub, they found something that surprised head-up-your-ass left-wing media dogmaticians, but no one else: women like super violent porn that features multiple attackers, abject terror and lots of force! Women don’t just want to see sex. They want to see sex that includes ‘painful anal crying’, ‘public disgrace’ and ‘extreme brutal gangbang’.
Well, hello there, Mohammed. Did you bring your friend Akbar, too?
It amuses me, truly, to see writers like Sophia Rahman (that’s an Arabic name that means ‘servant of the most merciful’, by the way) try to stagger and blubber their way through women’s perplexing and difficult to dislodge tendency to adore domination, power, control, mastery and men, all at the same time! It only takes Sophia three paragraphs to try to absolve women of even the slightest hint of accountability for their own illicit desires:
Researchers found that 52 percent of the women had fantasies about forced sex with a man, 32 percent about being raped and 28 percent about forced oral sex with a man. Overall, 62 percent of the women reported having had at least one fantasy around a forced sex act. The researchers then investigated if the women’s fantasies were indicative of “sexual blame avoidance”, a hypothesis that women socialised by our slut-shaming culture chose forced sex themes to negate feelings of shame and guilt.
Kudos to Sophia for having the capacity to at least write the truth, even as she struggles to understand it:
The opposite was found to be true. Women who reported being less repressed about sex were more likely to have rape fantasies, more open to fantasy in general, more likely to have consensual fantasies and finally, they were found more likely to have high self-esteem.
Hmmmm. Women who think very highly of themselves enjoy fantasizing about men finding them, literally, irresistible? It’s so confusing.
If you had to pick the best-selling book in Britain of all time – since record-keeping began – what would you choose? The Bible? The Book of Common Prayer? Pride and Prejudice? Vera Britten’s Testament of Youth (fabulous book)? Harry Potter? The Wealth of Nations?
Try 50 Shades Of Grey.
I spotted a book on the shelf at the library and grabbed it. Today we will read the introduction to The Big Lie – Motherhood, Feminism, and The Reality of The Biological Clock by Tanya Selvaratnam.
This may surprise you but there will be much ranting to be had.
