A busy Doom-filled week!
Hayden (not his real name, for reasons that will become obvious) is 18 years old and he will never forget the moment when he first realized he was a necrophile. He was 14 years old at the funeral of a girl who had been a close friend—it was the first time he had come in contact with a corpse.
“I could feel the chill of her skin on my hand for hours [after] and I thought about what it would be like to hold onto her forever. She was so cold, and her eyes were so open and blank and lifeless,” Hayden told me, recalling the experience.
“I remember the way the light glinted off her face and made her look like she was asleep, but her eyes were so wide and so dead,” he continued. “I thought I could drown in them. I wanted to brush my hand through her hair and curl my fingers around hers and just let my skin linger and mold to hers so I could feel her forever. It felt like it was over too soon.”
When he would recall the experience, Hayden said, it was often accompanied with intense feelings of anger and guilt. And when he tried to tell others about what he had felt, he added, they were far from accepting.
This was from three years ago; I apologize to Doom fans for missing it. Vice was by then already leading the way to necrophiliac acceptance.
Necrophilia is, of course, a sexual orientation. Thus necrophiliacs are a protected class everywhere there are sexual-orientation laws protecting non-procreative sexual acts.
The problem, as we’ve discussed innumerable times, is that once you unchain the furies of sexual orientation, there are no limits. There is nothing that cannot be classed as an “orientation”, and there is no way to draw a line. Preferring sodomy and eschewing necrophilia is only bigotry, an opinion. You can’t even carp about “consent” with necrophilia. If you accept “orientations” you must under the painful lashings of consistency accept necrophilia. You must accept every sexual vice.
There is either the natural law or there is sexual anarchy. There is no third option.
Addressing and preventing sexual harassment requires attending to all three
forms of sexual harassment: 1) gender harassment (sexist hostility and crude behavior),
(2) unwanted sexual attention (unwelcome verbal or physical sexual advances), and (3)
sexual coercion (when favorable professional or educational treatment is conditioned
on sexual activity). Gender harassment is by far the most common form of sexual harassment…
So, almost never real sexual harassment, but women unhappy beta soyboy scientists are hitting on them.
What’s the cause of these terrible conditions for women?
…male-dominated work settings; hierarchies that concentrate power in individuals and make students, junior faculty, and others dependent on them for funding, research direction, mentorship, and career advancement…
Ah. A power grab. Who could have guessed it?
Interest in spirituality has been booming in recent years while interest in religion plummets, especially among millennials. The majority of Americans now believe it is not necessary to believe in God to have good morals, a study from Pew Research Center found. The percentage of people between the ages of 18 and 29 who “never doubt existence of God” fell from 81% in 2007 to 67% in 2012.
Meanwhile, more than half of young adults in the U.S. believe astrology is a science. compared to less than 8% of the Chinese public. The psychic services industry — which includes astrology, aura reading, mediumship, tarot-card reading and palmistry, among other metaphysical services — grew 2% between 2011 and 2016. It is now worth $2 billion annually, according to industry analysis firm IBIS World.
Melissa Jayne, owner of Brooklyn-based “metaphysical boutique” Catland, said she has seen a major uptick in interest in the occult in the past five years, especially among New Yorkers in their 20s. The store offers workshops like “Witchcraft 101,” “Astrology 101,” and a “Spirit Seance.”
“Whether it be spell-casting, tarot, astrology, meditation and trance, or herbalism, these traditions offer tangible ways for people to enact change in their lives,” she said. “For a generation that grew up in a world of big industry, environmental destruction, large and oppressive governments, and toxic social structures, all of which seem too big to change, this can be incredibly attractive.”
The obvious answer that millennials are young, stupid, and petulant at rates exceeding those seen in other young people in our history never occurred to the writer. And since when is “spirituality” not “religion”?
Catland, don’t forget, was were dateless crones gathered to hex Justice Kavanaugh.
The headline is mine. Let’s end appointing people to high offices based on their demographics characteristics, eh?
What is wrong with white women? Why do half of them so consistently vote for Republicans, even as the Republican party morphs into a monstrously ugly organization that is increasingly indistinguishable from a hate group? The most likely answer seems to be that white women vote for Republicans for the same reason that white men do: because they are racist.
That, plus the antifa attack on that reporter’s home, those (sort of) bombs, and many other incidents shows Civil War 2.0 that some long for comes closer. Just wait until the sane and rational House flip in January. “You have been warned.”

You recall when I came out as a yak? Since desire determines what we are, contra all physical evidence, then I am a yak. And you are as young as you want to be. And others better agree, the bigots.
