How Flanders Helped Shape Freedom in America

How Flanders Helped Shape Freedom in America
From the desk of Paul Belien on Mon, 2005-07-11 00:01
July 11 is Flanders Day. The date refers to the day in 1302 when an army of Flemish burghers defeated a superior army of French knights by driving them into a swamp. Historically the term Flanders refers to the mediaeval county of Flanders centered around the town of Brugge (Bruges in French). Today, the term Flanders is used in a broader sense, referring to the Dutch-speaking part of contemporary Belgium i.e. the historical counties of Flanders, Brabant and Loon. Brussels, the historical

Why Lesbians Aren't Gay ,feminist theory is largely immune from radical questioning

While feminist theory is largely immune from radical questioning in most of the prestige media, few people actually take it seriously . . . especially feminists. They seldom pay their own theory the respect of treating it like a scientific theory and testing it against the evidence. If feminist theory is truly an attempt to make accurate predictions about reality, rather than simply an elaborate rationalization for blaming your troubles on somebody else, then feminists should welcome a frank appraisal of the contrasting longings and ambitions of gays and lesbians, since this offers fascinating new perspectives from which to assay feminist hypotheses.
For example, feminists tirelessly denounce the fashion and beauty industry for brainwashing American men into craving skin-deep feminine beauty. But which is truly the cause and which is the effect? Luckily, the curious analyst can study people who have rejected heterosexual socialization: among homosexuals, the distinctiveness of men's and women's basic sexual urges is especially vivid. Since "Women Seeking Women" don't need to entice men's visually-focused desires, their newspaper personal ads tend toward wistful vagueness: Attractive SWF, bi, seeking SF, feminine & discreet, any race, for friendship and possible rltnshp. In contrast, the "Men Seeking Men" classifieds bristle with statistics quantifying appearance: John Wayne-type (41, 6'3" 210#, C 46" W 35", brn/grn) seeks Steve Garvey-type (muscular, str8-acting, 20-30, under 6' & 185#, blu eyes a +).
Even more egregiously swept under the rug by feminists like Naomi Wolf (author of The Beauty Myth) is the central creative role of gay men in the fashion business. Thus, feminist pundits routinely portray the current fad in haute couture for "waif" models (young girls lacking in the more popular secondary sexual characteristics) as a conspiracy against women hatched by . . . yes, you guessed it, The Male Power Structure. This accusation always conjures up for me a vision of Alan Greenspan, Bill Gates, and Colin Powell resolving in secret conclave to put uppity women back in their place by ordering Vogue to print a lot of pictures of girls who look like boys.

Speciation among primates

Speciation among primates - current estimate for chimp-human split is 5 million years, we're separate species (not interfertile) so it must have taken less than 5 million years. I suspect it takes around 2 million years, depending on generation length. That would indicate that modern humans were interfertile with homo erectus and homo neanderthalis.Modern humans are obviously not speciated. According to the standard biologists' definition of a sub-species/race, that it's merely an in-breeding group visually distinct from other sub-species/races, we are obviously sub-speciated, as any geographically dispersed species will tend to be. -ViL

Althouse: Should we say "single-gender education"?

Althouse: Should we say "single-gender education"?

Should we say "single-gender education"?
Mark Liberman -- who saw that term in a headline -- wonders why someone would want to avoid the standard phrase "same-sex education." [ADDED: I meant to write "single-sex education," and I can see that my slip shows a problem with the term.] Is it a matter of embracing the word "gender" to express the belief that differences between male and female are produced by culture, not biology? Or is it prudery about about the word "sex"?Liberman informs us that the word "sex" goes back to 1382 -- "Of alle thingis hauynge sowle of ony flehs, two thow shalt brynge into the ark, that maal sex and femaal lyuen with thee" -- but the first use of it to refer to "genital pleasure" is in this D.H. Lawrence poem, "Pansies":
If you want to have sex, you've got to trustAt the core of your heart, the other creature.

accoupler avec Brice Hortefeux par blogueuse influente

Même si nous étions les deux derniers représentants de l'espèce humaine après une guerre thermo-nucléaire ...
Publié le jeudi 21 juin 2007
.... jamais je ne pourrais envisager de m'accoupler avec Brice Hortefeux. Oui, même pour sauver l'humanité, ça va pas être possible, comme disaient les Zebda (tiens, qu'est ce qu'ils sont devenus eux, on en entend plus parler de ces zozos, pourtant en temps de Sarkozie, ils auraient du grain à moudre). C'est simple, à chaque fois que je le vois apparaître sur l'écran de ma télé, j'ai des contractions.

'victimhood' as a business plan

Affirmative action by Rainbow/PUSH is not idiocy, because they have successfully demonstrated for years that their form of 'moral' economic blackmail is effective. Essentially, their success uses 'victimhood' as a business plan, and corporate America signs up as paying customers and clients of the discriminating anti-discrimination paradigm.

higher IQ scores sometimes increase the probability of being in financial difficulty

Financial distress, such as problems paying bills, going bankrupt or reaching credit card limits, is related to IQ scores not linearly but instead in a quadratic relationship. This means higher IQ scores sometimes increase the probability of being in financial difficulty.

Femme libérée et l’uniforme officiel des guidounes de petite vertu

Femme libérée
C’est un beau paradoxe. Si, en 2006, des fillettes peuvent se présenter en classe vêtues de l’uniforme officiel des guidounes de petite vertu, c’est en grande partie à cause des luttes féministes des années 70.

Tout à fait.

Car si les femmes ou les fillettes sont aujourd’hui libres d’interpréter leur féminité comme bon leur semble, c’est à cause du féminisme. Et si les femmes ont aujourd’hui le droit d’investir le marché du travail, de se faire avorter, d’être jurées ou de gober bêtement un oeuf dans le vinaigre au fond de la taverne la plus crado en ville, c’est encore et toujours à cause du féminisme.
Il y a encore du travail à faire, mais les femmes sont libres au Québec. Libres, donc, de porter des vêtements sexy. Est-ce un gain ou un effet pervers du féminisme? La question porte à réfléchir.

Ce qui m’étonne cependant, c’est d’entendre des jeunes femmes au look plus que suggestif parler avec mépris des «féminissses».
Un peu comme si ces dernières n’étaient que de tristes reliques frustrées, des fossiles vivants incapables de s’adapter au présent.

Lust is associated primarily with testosterone

a rabbi who is asked whether sex pleasure or work. "If it were work," "my wife would have the maid do it."

Professor Helen Fisher of Rutgers University suspects that low sex drive in women is due to the absence of love.

Lust is associated primarily with testosterone in both men and women ... Romantic love is linked with the natural stimulant dopamine and perhaps norepinephrine and serotonin. And feelings of attachment are produced primarily by the hormones oxytocin and vasopressin, which at elevated levels can actually suppress the circuits for lust.

should I stay or should I go
I am constantly asked if I want to leave Bulgaria and go back to America and I always have to answer yes and no. Yes I want to leave here and start a course of my life that will lead to something more permanent than this life here but no because I'll miss it here and I like my life here. Then they tell me to stay one more year and want an answer as to why I am not going to do that. Well, I finally figured out one that works and they can clearly understand.

What is wrong with empty pointless sex?

OK I feel like inviting some slut shaming here.

I always took advantage of my femaleness and let guys buy me drinks. Sometimes I would buy them the drinks. Then you can have playful arguments about who pays. Hell, I had lots of booty call relationships too. The guy knew what he was and I made no bones about it. As long as you are up front and honest about it, nobody gets exploited. But I guess all these people want women to feel ashamed for going to bars and ashamed for liking sex. You know, if there wasn't so much rampant slut-shaming, I bet there would be a lot more women willing to go to bars and have no-strings sex. The slut-shaming ultimately bites men in the ass too. Maybe that's why they need to use cheap drinks to lure women to the bar in the first place. Because the women don't want to be seen as sluts looking for empty sex. What is wrong with empty pointless sex?

monogamy is a farce!

monogamy is a farce!
EDIT: I just found a paper (posted here)estimating the rate of human EPC to be between <1%-30% with a median of 3.7%. In other words, 1 in 25 fathers reading this are raising children that are the product of their partners infidelity...

In a previous post (link) the bold claim was made that there is no biological predisposition towards human monogamy, but instead what drives us toward monogamy-like mating system is culture. There seem to be several independent lines of evidence that supports my position.
Anecdotal evidence. How many of us:Have never had a friend who cheated?Cheated ourselves?Know somebody who was actually cuckolded?

polygamy is very common in society. It's called dating

The fact that should be shining like a red bulb in the night, is that polygamy is very common in society. It's called dating and crumbles to pieces when a couple in the dating sect decide to get more serious and cement a minimal deal, also known as "going together." There's a plethora of benefits with monogamy and it will certainly remain a dominate element is the relationship game. The knowledge of who's and how many ding-dongs are going in who's and how many hoo-hahs isn't anyone's business except the owners of the aforementioned ding-hahs, as long as all parties are consenting.

Law, divorce and polygamous arrangements

allowing informal polygamous arrangements, imagine the difficulties that would arise in Family Law if an attempt were made to formalize such marriages. The more spouses and children, the more permutations of potential legal conflicts.

The concept of "authenticity" -is racist.




The concept of "authenticity" -- that one's skin colour mandates particular behaviours, such as voting Democrat and supporting "affirmative action" -- is, of course, racist. But the peculiar touchiness of the black community on this question recurs again and again in Williams's book. "The defence of gangster rap, with its pride in guns and murder, was that it was all about 'keepin' it real,' " he writes. "In that stunning perversion of black culture, anyone who spoke against the self-destructive core of gangster rap was put down as acting white."
This is a fascinating theme whose significance extends far beyond music -- or, in this case, "music." We're encouraged these days to disdain ethnic stereotypes -- the Scots are stingy, the Germans humourless, etc. -- but, if one were to ascribe certain characteristics to particular ethnic groups, you'd be hard put to burden African-Americans with as many disabling pathologies as are currently touted under the justification of "keepin' it real." "Violence, murder, and self-hatred were marketed as true blackness -- authentic black identity," says Williams. "Keepin' it real" means the rapper Nelly making a video in which he swipes a credit card through his ho's butt. "Keepin' it real" means men are violent and nihilistic, women are "sluts, bobbing chicken heads, and of course bitches." "Keepin' it real," noted the writer Nick Crowe, equates, in effect, to "disempowerment." Because if being black means being a self-destructive self-gratifying criminal rutting machine, and building a career, settling down, getting a nice house in the suburbs, raising a family is acting white, that would seem to hand whitey an awful lot of advantages.

the dowry was to protect the wife's financial security

Women in Late Antiquity:Pagan and Christian Lifestyles


The origin of the dowry was to protect the wife's financial security since it was not in the interests of the state to have poor widows, often with children, dependent on it. "Any property she inherited or acquired after her father's death remained her own. Her dowry could be used by the husband from the time of marriage, but with the powerful restraint that he might have to give some or all of it back if there was a divorce - exactly how much depended on the law of the time and the terms of the marriage settlement. It did not simply become his property. . . If the husband had a financial disaster, return of dowry took precedence over the claims of his creditors."
