American "Thinker" is abusive to my intelligence.

opening of the Pandora's box of human sexuality

Actually, that was opened thousands of years ago, then more recently shoved shut by the morally 'sensible'.

Humans were way more free sexually before religion came in and started repressing everything.
 
2012-11-18 12:07:58 PM
Most abusive in reality was the destruction of community and the evolution of the insular so-called "nuclear family". Much easier for Big Religion to control the education of kids if you bar them from contact with "others".

Not that the marketing of sexuality, especially female sexuality, hasn't done quite a lot of damage, but the allure of pornography and the invasion of pornography into all aspects of the entertainment industry and the marketing industry is enabled by the repression of the religion industry.

So lighten up on the "Presidential exile beside the dark rivers of Babylon" bullsh*t, get over your sordid self-important pious self and read a bit more widely than your fellow right-wingers.

Times change. You can lead the change. You can follow the change, or you can get the hell out of the way of the change.

But if you stand in its path, you'll get run over.

[Control-F] "divorce"

Another "family structure" asshole with no explanation or solution for the almost 50% divorce rate in America.

Sanctity of (heterosexual) marriage, my ass...

I have found the only people truly offended by homosexuals are repressed homosexuals, directing their inner hatred outward.

Come on out of the closet, you'll feel much better.

Which amendment is it again that gives us the right not to have our moral sensibilities abused?

FTFA: "I am a relic of an age that is rapidly becoming a distant memory for some and an impossible fiction for most. And while I am only in my mid-fifties chronologically, culture-wise I am on the leeward side of a great divide..."

I'm in the same age range and I've managed to cope. Dude, maybe the problem is you.

Some people shape the times they live in, but time simply passes by the others. Guess which category American Thinker is in.

I initially read that as "You can lead the charge. You can follow the charge, or you can get the hell out of the way of the charge."

Marcus Aurelius: I have found the only people truly offended by homosexuals are repressed homosexuals, directing their inner hatred outward.


There's the old joke that "The war between the sexes will never be won, because it's so much fun fraternizing with the enemy." I wonder if this might illuminate why the Religious Right have so much trouble winning the war against homosexuality.

What offends me is you can't expect a bride to come with a decent dowry anymore. Why bother to have more than one wife?

Yeah, there were a lot of people who thought considering black people more than 3/5ths of a person or later the mixing of the races were an assault on their moral sensibilities. Outside of some KKK or Neo-Nazi wingnuts, we're not very sympathetic to those views either now. Wah!

2012-11-18 03:03:59 PM
If this is the acceptance that folks love one another and are happy is abusive to your moral sensibilities, and the wholesale destruction of families and communities in the name of a War on Drugs is just fine, and the propping up of dictatorships in the name of political convenience is A-OK, I think that, perhaps, you lack imagination or anything resembling ethical or moral underpinnings...

NutWrench: They really shouldn't call themselves "American Thinker" if all their ideas are stupid.


Stupid people think. We just tend to ignore them, mock them, or cast them off into a fiery pit.
 
2012-11-18 03:40:57 PM
Seriously. They should use this stuff to anesthetize people before surgery. The justification of hatred of those that are "different" than the conservative social norm, and the continued persecution of them under the guise of "morality" is sickening and mind numbing.

If Fark doesn't link to Stormfront, it shouldn't link to this either.......but of course, no one has to read it. That's the flip side to the coin.

In any event, shoving gays back in the closet, women back into the kitchen, and blacks back into the cotton fields isn't going to magically bring back a time when straight white Christian men ruled the roost. Time marches on, with or without you.

Well, I do see that as I post this, only 36 clicks have been sent American Potato's way.

One really good think Fark did was automatically put the website's logo up if it's available. Before, there were a lot of links like this hidden under "Some Guy."

Ooh, looks like someone at AT bought themselves a shiny new Thesaurus.

FTA: The Body Cult has, I suppose, always been present in American culture to some degree, but our current infatuation with it is an increasingly disturbing aspect of American life. While health is a net good, the fetish that attends it is more indicative of the latent therapeutic narcissism and the paper-thin dogma of eternal youth: a belief that the finite commodity of life can be mastered through technology and that through the relentless procedures of scalpel and supplements, man can beat God at his own game.

So America's Body Cult problem is not obesity on a scale that makes the country the butt of Fat American jokes around the globe but the fact that a few vainglorious types avail themselves of botox and plastic surgery?

Truly your intellect is dizzying.

As we begin anew another four years of Presidential exile beside the dark rivers of Babylon, let us not cease our yearning for the beautiful cause that we hold so deeply within our hearts.

Reality check time, chucklef*ck.

Hate based on ignorance is not now and never will be a "beautiful cause"/

Baal

The Left do not worship Baal, but the Right sure do worship them some Mammon.

See and acknowledge this truth or live in darkness.

I get a sense while reading this that this guy is his own biggest fan of his flowery, overly ornate, laughably absurd, logically invalid prose.

She's pretty cool in person as well. She used to do the annual/biannual University of Rochester drag show and usually got tons of laughter and tips. She's one of the reasons we used to do so well with the straight and fratboy populations too.

Can't Drew just set up a bot that clicks on links and makes him money? Then we could have a "DERP" tab that we never visit, and makes him a fortune, freeing the rest of FARK up for better stuff, like boobies and lolcats.

Serious question: What horrible things is society's acceptance supposed to pave the way for? Nationwide crime is at historic lows, people are more educated than ever (scary, considering the vocal idiots out there, but true), divorce rates are fairly stable (possibly even declining). The only number that seems to be going up is children out of wedlock, and it's hard to see how homosexual relationships effects that one that much. So what is the problem, exactly?

I worked with a guy who said he read AT so he could think "independently". He didn't really seem to get the irony of that.
