An alternative to feminism. Women who agree to continue the old fashioned way. Not only to obey the husband, but to actively make efforts to make him happy, to be their husband’s sex object and whore, to make him satisfied and thus bring peace and happiness to the home. Also to accept additional wives if they are not able to fully satisfy him.
Maybe an alternative to divorce and single families. Remember, this has worked successfully over tens of thousands of years, while 100 years of feminism seems to have destroyed the nuclear family and might cause Western civilization to die, due to lack of children.
Just food for thought. Not necessarily the official definite opinion of Human-Stupidity. But a refreshing alternative to militant feminism and marital quarrel.
Note that one could allow contractual freedom for marriage: The obedience issue can be settled in a kind of a pre-nup. If a feminist does not want to sign this, it is ok, as long as she finds a husband (like Prince Williams) who does not demand obedience as a condition for marriage.
Humans, in spite of great brain and social capacity, get totally irrational and blind on certain issues. Frequently this is due to dogmas, taboos, religion, political correctness, old habits. etc. Maybe someone’s hidden agenda is the source for some such manipuative selective (self)-deception .
It took the pope until 1992, 13 years after Neill Armstrong stepped on the moon, to recognize that the Galileo Galilei was right and the earth was not stationary. And people still take the pope seriously when he prohibits the use of condoms in Aids-struck Africa and threatens to excommunicate who turns off the artificial feeding of a girl after 20 years in brain dead coma.
People who normally are highly intelligent (like the pope) become totally irrational, unconscious, self-deceived on issues related to dogmas, taboos, religion, habits, political correctness. Not only at Galileo’s time, even today the taboos go as far as to repress scientific research
Persecution of researchers on racial differences in intelligence. This is a tough issue, because equal intelligence of all races is a dogma shared by liberals who would agree with most of my other points. So any research that points to different intelligence in the races must be repressed. But, we claim we are an open-minded scientific society. As long as scientific results don’t contradict our dogmas.
Repression of research violating dogmas:
Bill Clinton condemned the “Bell Curve” (about racial differences in intelligence) without even reading it. The US senate condemned, with a 99:0 vote, prestigious research in the American Psychological Association journal showing that in cases of sexual “child abuse”, no damage can be found if no violence has been employed and the victim has at least average intelligence.
Child pornography witch hunt:
under the guise of saving a few abused children, the entire interpol hunts down some poor loners who pay for a web site with teen sex photos. They get arrested with the entire might of interpol, and get their life destroyed.
Pedophile witch hunt & obsessive repression of teenage sexuality.
An enormous legal apparatus, under the guise of protecting 5 year olds from clear obvious abuse (no extra law is needed for that because penetrating a 5 year old is severe bodily harm) ends up arresting 17 year old girls for sending their own nude photos to their boy friends.
Prohibiting the use of embryos for stem cell research.
Throwing the embryos into the garbage, that is allowed. This nonsense has diminished after Bush left office, but the religious right still thinks the rights of a lump human cells with an imaginary soul trump the right for health and cure of adults with diseases.
Religion & Atheism:
Religion is the source of many of our aberrations in thought, logic, and policy. I am too scared to even mention the most violent religion on earth. Christianity is past the crusades and witch burnings.
Darwins Theory of Evolution: in spite of overwhelming scientific support with not one single counter-example. The churches see, correctly, that with Darwin’s theory, there is no more pressing need for a God-Creator, so they do their best to invent Creationist nonsense to confuse the non-scientific public.
at the same time allowing alcohol and tobacco to kill thousands of people.
There seems to be some kind of contradiction and inconsistency. Also allowing advertising for junk food that created a world wide health menace of obesity from early childhood on:
Obesity, unhealty food, sedentary lifestyle:
due to misguided evolutionary mechanisms (hunter gatherers don’t have McDonalds, chocolate, unimited all you can eat buffets) we tend to eat wrong and be lazy to make unnecessary moves. Add to this industry greed, …. and we have a health epidemic.
Negating right to die for the terminally ill.
We are a liberal society that respects self determination and individual dignity. And we are not a religious state, so why do religious people want to force incurable cancer sufferers to rot and die slowly? If we let our dog die like this, the humane society would sue us for cruelty with animals. And of course it is totally taboo to discuss the cost of keeping an almost dead person “alive” for another half year.
Why does government and police interfere when consenting adults decide to buy and sell sexual services? Are we not a free country? Is anyone harmed by this? And why are people in jail for planting two flower pots of marijuana in their own back yard for their own consumption? But booze and cigarette stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange?
Prohibition of prostitution: under the guise of protecting women from “abuse”, Cambodjan brothels get closed, leaving the sex workers jobless and without income. Seems the “victims” are unable to decide for themselves, they need the law and self appointed feminists to decide for them. Basically, consenting adults are not allowed to sell and buy sexual services. For the majority of men who don’t have much sexual success, prostitution could be psychological comfort:
vicious killers on death row can complain about cruelty in execution that take 3 minutes to die (while law abiding citizens are not allowed to die humanely in a hospital but die agonizing deaths taking weeks)
Should society really spend billions on safeguarding criminals. Maybe the old fashioned methods like execution, whipping, cutting off hands etc. should be reconsidered? (I am playing devil’s advocate, I am not whole-heartedly suggesting these solutions)
Taboos, Dogmas, Religion make even the Intelligent blind, irrational, “stupid”.
