    Well shit, now I gotta go buy a watch.

    Well, I guess we should be thankful for revenge / reverse virtue-signalling, even if to shill another product…

  3. Nick Mgtow says:

    I wonder if a woman who shares the picture of a naked woman in a gym to bodyshame her is toxic femininity…

  4. Jack says:

    Regardless of the motivations or criticism, it’s refreshing to see some positive imaging of men for once.

  5. Red Pill Latecomer says:

    Surprisingly red pill. Instead of telling “deadbeat dads” to “man up,” it actually depicts fathers paying child support despite losing their visitation rights.

  6. The Other Scott says:

    So what happens when we all start popularising the term “toxic femininity”?

  7. Great use of stats, doesn’t feel like pandering because nobody knows that stuff who wasn’t paying attention before. Good for them. Plus the V1 class looks slick.

    Hmm, this “failed” ad sure got people talking about Gillette(™)

    Dylan Sexton: Hmm, this “failed” ad sure got people talking about Gillette(™)

    The Gillette ad was the opening topic on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal yesterday morning. They said the ad had received 20 million YouTube views and 25 million Facebook views.

    That’s 45 million views (so far) that Gillette didn’t even have to pay for. It doesn’t include views on other media, paid and unpaid.

    The C-SPAN host quoted from various pundits who’d written about the Gillette ad. He then took phone calls from C-SPAN viewers about the Gillette ad. Thus did the non-commercial C-SPAN devote free ad time to Gillette.

  11. seventiesjason says:

    It’s a decent ad but like the Gillete ad of late, I would like to see “the product” they offer.

    Guys, check out this video on the front page of this watch company. It’s some prime advertising material: https://youtu.be/5RrF5rlmghY

    This kind of thing should be promoted.

  14. Opus says:

    Today, I received an e-mail from my friend. He told me that his son who is about fifteen years of age had together with his class at school received a lecture from two men visiting the school (one of whom he said was a homo-sexualist) telling them not to physically assault females. His son had responded to the men that 90% of this alleged violence was just wolf-whistling (he had the stats and seemed to know the source) and said cat-calling was not violence. The men were apparently at this tongue-tied and his student friend from a former soviet satellite said without embarrassment that in his country Homo-sexualists were put to death without the benefit of trial – he clearly thought this a good thing. Apparently these anti-male lectures are like the Gillette ad backfiring badly. God knows what I would have done had I been the father of a boy receiving such effeminacy pro-homosexual indoctrination that it is a mercy I am not a parent.

  17. Trust says:

    What so many don’t see is the disparity in how we handle male virtue/vice and female virtue/vice.

    When it comes to masculinity, instead of shaming vice and encouraging men to use their masculinity in virtuous ways, we shame masculinity altogether.

    On the flip side, when it comes to femininity, instead of shaming vice and encouraging women to use their femininity in virtuous ways, we incentivize and celebrate female vice and call it virtue. If anything is shamed in women, it is usually virtue.

    As Karen Straughan noted, we named the force for evil after men: patriarchy. And the force for good after women: feminism.

    That is all the math they do. And a lot of votes are being cast and a lot of money being made… and a lot of lives are being shattered.

    Excellent. Just shared it on Facebook and encouraged my female friends to watch it.

    Oh, and now there are some interesting murmurings on the Web about the checkered past of the ad’s director, Kim Gehrig. The plot thickens…

    Even if every person on Earth sees this ad and talks about the brand, if it ends up with no net gain in sales, it was a failure. Hype and brand awareness and mission statements and all that are meant to drive sales, and are not an end in themselves

    So what happens when we all start popularising the term “toxic femininity”?

    MRA Paul Elam said long ago: “What if women declared a war between the genders, and men actually showed up to fight it?”

    That time is now. Men are making reply ads, shaming brands like Gillette, exposing stupid stereotypes in advertising movies and TV, demanding proof, exposing the Family Court and no-fault divorce.

    I think it was a commentator in this blog who said, “2019 will be the year when women start telling us that feminism never existed”

    It is starting to happen.

    Wow!

    What an inspirational video!

    Off Topic: Complementarianism is a gateway drug to feminism.

    https://warhornmedia.com/2019/01/15/covenant-theological-seminary-and-the-decline-of-the-pca/

    Next we turn to Covenant’s Professor of Theology Dan Doriani who was a contributor to the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood’s “Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood”. It was back in the early 2000s that Doriani left Covenant to take the senior pastorate of St. Louis’s Central Presbyterian Church—the tallest Presbyterian steeple in the city. Central holds membership in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, a denomination whose reason to exist from its inception has always been permitting the ordination of women pastors and elders.

    Prof. Doriani’s move from Covenant and the PCA into the environs of EPC’s feminist egalitarianism was seamless. There was no alarm. No talk of women pastors and elders being a confessional issue. It was the same years later when Sr. Pastor Doriani decided he wanted to return to Covenant and the PCA. No muss, no fuss. So that now Dr. Doriani has taken up duties as Covenant’s “Vice President of Strategic Academic Projects and Professor of Theology.”

    Complementarianism; not even once.

  28. ray says:

    Topic being good in men, I just watched a segment from a fox program called watter’s world. He did a nice job covering the Gillette Bonanza (praise the Lord, please deliver more enemies) — there was even some kind of male(?) ‘witch’ present in the segment, for comic effect I guess. Only thing he could conjure is a fart.

    Lots of fun, so that’s tucker and now waters, a good beginning, but only that.

  29. BillyS says:

    Wow, the concern trolls showed up here quickly.

  30. BillyS says:

    RPL,

    How many people will buy Gillette products because of that exposure however? Hillary got a lot of air time as well, for all the good it did her.

  31. BillyS says:

    My exwife (after an almost 30 year marriage) claimed she hated feminism. I will be very skeptical of women (and men) who claim to oppose feminism, yet support its outcomes.

  32. info says:

    @BillyS

    Watching a woman’s actions is always more useful than words.

  33. Billy I don’t understand how a marriage could end after 30 years. If you don’t want to talk about it I understand but it doesn’t make much sense to me.

  34. MattW says:

    A better video would be about how men build and maintain civilization

  35. Scott says:

    Sent to this 22 year old son on his electricians apprenticeship.

    Guys that age need to know that guys our age (I’m 47) are aware of the problem and we are concerned about them.

    I think BillyS has described the conditions under which his marriage collapsed elsewhere, and I don’t remember all the details. But its not inconceivable. A man will put up with a mountain of crap for many years in the hopes that things will return to the early days of the romance. Or just to be around his kids.

    He will keep listening and trying to “understand” what she “needs” him to do, and set out to do it without any real results and keep returning to the drawing board to try again.

    “Men love idealistically…”

    By the way I think I fixed my gravatar to be sans picture, but with “Scott” back as the name.

    Innocentbystanderboston says:
    Billy I don’t understand how a marriage could end after 30 years.
    LOL
    He married a woman. ’nuff said!
    And churchian culture probably cheered her on the whole way as she tore her own home down with her own hands. And no doubt they took turns kicking Billy when they should have been building him up in his wife’s eyes. I wouldn’t have believed it, if my marriage wasn’t going through a similar churchian backed destruction. While, due to my wife’s Intimacy Anorexia, my marriage was never a good one, if not for the churchian’s support for my wife’s every evil action, things would likely have been better and not progressed to a nasty divorce after only 16 years.
    I agree with what Seventiesjason was saying on the other thread about how, repentance needs to start in the church. While, yes, it is important to preach patriarchy to Gillette, and I will try to avoid all P&G products from here on out, we really need to clean up our churches first, or ditch them and start new righteous ones. Starting fresh, in somebody’s house, with new laws and bylaws may be far easier than fighting to get the decades of crap cleaned out of an existing compromised church.

  38. BillyS says:

    IBB,

    “How” is very simple. She never wanted to be married in the first place and it took her that long to overcome her “faith” and go the way of the world. Many factors, but she was so afraid of becoming Edith Bunker in the marriage that she ended up like Maude instead.

    She wouldn’t let herself be happy in the marriage and thus her time in it was miserable to her, something she portrayed to others, including those at church.

    Now she gets to live the fun single life again with monthly money (for a while longer) from me. What is not for her to like? The church even had her back since I was “so bad” in their eyes, or at least the eyes of the pastor’s wife at the time of the divorce. Me being hard and her taking several things out of context even gave her the spiritual cover for her foolishness.

    I still wonder why, but I believe I know the core reasons.

  39. JRob says:

    All the best to seventiesjason. And Sharkly, I’ll echo your agreement. I lurked here for years. The commenters as well as our host helped the scales fall from my eyes. I understand the truth and truly hear what is said bu these “ministries.”
    The latest beatdown I found, bt accident, was Dr. David Clarke. Husbands latest book is
    I Don’t Want a Divorce: A 90-Day Guide to Saving Your Marriage
    Rolled past FotF (Focus on the Cuckery) this morning and heard 4 minutes of this guy. He claims not loving your wife like Christ loves the Church (her standard of this, of course) is a sin and twists Scripture to back this up. He then counsels women to “feed everyone in the house, except your husband. Ignore him until he gets it. ” That was all I could take.

    Repentance needs to begin in the church with such man-crushing “ministries” allowed, no, FORCED, to die.

  40. JRob says:

    Alrighty then, odd auto corrects I missed there. I believe it’s understandable.

  41. BillyS says:

    JRob,

    It would be a sin to not love your wife as Christ loves the Church, since we have a clear command for that. But I would be very sure he has no idea what that really means. He would never blame Christ for the Church’s unhappiness, yet I am sure he does that to men. That is the error, not the expectation.

    Jesus also held the Church very accountable at times, with very harsh words. See the letters to the churches in the Book of Revelation (Chapters 2 and 3) for some examples.

    Billy I don’t understand how a marriage could end after 30 years. If you don’t want to talk about it I understand but it doesn’t make much sense to me.

    Idiotic, to be honest. Staying in a marriage is a unilateral decision.

  46. Red Pill Latecomer says:

    I saw a surprisingly redpill film about gay culture: Bohemian Rhapsody. It’s a film about the rock band Queen, and its lead singer, Freddie Mercury, who dies of AIDS in 1991.

    Being a biography, the film shows some truth. It inadvertently depicts the emptiness of the gay lifestyle. Mercury’s hetero bandmates all marry and have kids, while Mercury spirals down in his drug & gay orgy lifestyle.

    * Mercury reveals to his loving wife that he’s gay. She realizes their marriage is over. She says she feels sorry for him. That he’ll have a very difficult life.

    * Mercury sits alone in his mansion. Calling his ex-wife, desperate for an emotional connection. But she doesn’t want to take his call.

    * Mercury has many cats. He shows off his mansion to his bandmate, bragging there’s a room for every cat. He invites his bandmate to dinner, but the bandmate says he has to leave, he has a wife and kids waiting. Mercury is crestfallen, but says he understands.

    * Mercury throws parties to surround himself with people. His bandmates leave early, saying they have kids at home. Mercury forces himself to be happy with strangers after they leave.

    * Mercury keeps calling his band and friends his “family.” I sense it’s because he doesn’t have a real family.

    * In one GREAT scene, Mercury ex-wife comes over because she’s worried about him. Mercury is desperate to get her to stay, he’s so alone. She says she can’t, because she’s pregnant (with another man’s child). Mercury is crestfallen. Just then, his gay lover enters the house with an entourage of leather-clad men, preparing for an orgy. The ex-wife leaves.

    LOTS of similar great moments in this film. I was amazed that Hollywood dared to depict a film so critical of the gay lifestyle. In the end, Mercury dies of AIDS.

    * The gay lover tries to blackmail Mercury, then tells all to the tabloids.

    The trailer focuses on the more upbeat scenes:

    They try for a happy ending. They say in the credits that Mercury had a loving relationship with Jim, his new gay lover, for the remaining years of his life. It feels tacked on and fails to overcome the previous sordidness. The film tries to be PC, but fails to convince that the gay lifestyle is anything but empty.

    PS: I did not pay to see this film. It’s award season in Hollywood, and I get a lot of free screener DVDs this time of year because I’m eligible to vote in some of them.

    Soul Revue last night…….and it was bomb. This cat Ben Pirani is actually talented. saw him at a small Britsih Pub. Intimate show. He’s gotta be pushing 35-40. Here in the north bay of San Francisco…..the live music scene is all “americana-grateful dead styled stuff” (magic-fred-and-his -puple-flyin’-jefferson-airplanes type of thing) or “gutter punk rock” or the super, super, super common “cute / pretty girl with guitar or ukelele” singing stupid songs about her girl parts or how she stands up to men a la Taylor Swift.

    Why was this show at a small British Pub? Because the Brits know music (the owner is from London), and the soul scene is so small up here only white soul cats and a few latins get it. This guy had a crowd of fifteen. The cover was only 5 bux. True soul. Personable guy too, chatted for a few after the show. Total down to earth.

    RPL….I saw the movie. It was decent. The way the movie itself makes it visually is that “if only people were ‘nice’ to gay people and if, only IF they had equal rights back in the 1970’s, and 1980’s (marriage and cultural acceptance…..AND if only Reagan ‘stopped’ the AIDS crisis then none of these terrible things would have happned).

    I recall when AIDS was first diagnosed, it was called GRID (Gay-Related Immunodeficiency Disease). This wasn’t a slur on homosexuals who took it as such. Rather, it was the result of a group of doctors in San Francisco and other places trying to determine what the hell was happening to their gay patients – gleaned from varied reports, without a co-ordinated system and with no idea of what it was they were facing or how it spread.

    No amount of nicety or equal rights would have stopped HIV. What would have stopped it was closure of bath houses, warnings against gay promiscuity and calls for protected sex and IV usage.

    To no avail. Prevention was ”hate speech”. Measures to contain an epidemic were universally ignored and indeed, doubled down on: “Patient Zero”, a gay Canadian flight attendant named Gaetan Dugas kept up his quota of 300 partners per year even once he was diagnosed. He would tell his partners, ”I have gay Cancer. I’m going to die and you have it too” .

    Even today, PJ Media reports that 3600+ gay men dies horribly of cancer of the rectum, caused by Human Papilloma virus. The CDC has put out warnings again to no avail. They can quote that the life expectancy of a gay man is 22 years lower than that of a married straight man, but drawing attention to this is ”unscientific hate speech”. Instead they prefer to consider HIV – now barely controllable with HAART (”Highly Active Anti Retroviral Therapy”) coting thousands of dollars per year – a sacrament that they pass amongst each other in what are called ”bug-catching” and ”gift giving” ceremonies.

    There is no helping them.

  51. seventiesjason says:

    Spike……I agree with you. The AIDS narrative is now “Reagan heard about it and did nothing because ‘gays don’t vote republican anyway’ and so many more lives would have been saved if he did something at the time” (mid 1980’s)

    Bill Clinton called it in 1992 when running for president “a Reagan-Bush disease that could have been stopped”

    People are still dying from AIDS related illness / complications. We only hear about it now when a reublican is president. Rolling Stone claimed in 1993 it was intentionally started by Salk and their ilk. Even when I lived in San Francisco from 1996-2007, I knew plenty of gays (wasn’t gay, never experimented but did plenty of cocaine with handsome gay men my age at nighclubs, houseparties and smoked plenty of marijuana with them) and these guys were having plenty of sex, with multiple partners on many a weekend……I never understand this “thirst” or “obession” over the sex act….it was a mental illness in a way……….that they *had* to do this, it was a part of who they were.

    I mean, plenty of straight men make sex into something it isn’t…..you know, if you are not some lothario you should be wearing a dress and using Gillete razors…….but the gays I knew, and many I did have “social and polite friendships” with were obessed with sex, getting it, getting more and somehow proving something…..to whom or what I couldn’t understand at the time. Besides, I was a drug user still holding up a work / life balance then……..and I still had a nice head of hair.

    I will admit now with a smirk, a gay guy I knew back then (Mike, he could have been a Chad if straight…..women loved him), told me once about his opinion about women “They’re a bunch of hags….they really are, drag queens are better women than real women…….well because men are just better at everything.”

    That’s why the fag and fag ally reviews of it were negative — they didn’t like the way the gay was dealt with, too negative. That will probably keep it from winning the Oscar for BP — it was pretty gay but not on script gay so not good enough.

    Interesting take on San Fran at the time, Jason. Just a quick note: The Rolling Stone article to which you refer told a story about a failed polio vaccine trial carried out in the Belgian Congo in the late 1950s. The time line fits, so too does the geographical emergence of HIV in that area.

    I don’t think any of it is intentional, but I think HIV was a monkey virus that got into humans because attenuated (weakened) polio virus for vaccines were grown on chopped up monkey kidneys from Africa and made it’s way into humans via the polio trial.

    I agree with the strange obsession that gays and lotharios have with sex. It’s almost like they need to be defined by this act. It isn’t normal. The rest of us, I think, enjoy sex or use it for procreation and recreation, and it is only a problem when it tells us something is wrong with our relationship, since we are defined by other things.

  54. Red Pill Latecomer says:

    It seems that most films up for awards this year have some gay content.

    I watched a screener DVD of The Favourite, a film about Britain’s Queen Anne. I like historical dramas, so I expected to enjoy it.

    Instead, it was a dark comedy, depicting Queen Anne as involved in a lesbian love triangle with two of her servants. Not really a comedy, but not done with a straight face either.

    I did some research after the film. Apparently one of the ladies in the love triangle, the Duchess of Marlborough, had hinted that Queen Anne was involved in lesbianism. But this was after Anne had died, and the Duchess had it in for Anne, having been fired by her.

    I don’t think there’s any good historical evidence of Queen Anne’s lesbian love triangle, but the film chooses to make this rumor the focal point of the story.

  55. Red Pill Latecomer says:

    Another film up for awards is Can You Ever Forgive Me?, the true story of Lee Israel, a writer turned forger in the early 1990s. Set in New York’s publishing community.

    I like films about writers, so I was prepared to like this one. It turns out the Israel was a lesbian. We see her dating one woman, and meeting with another former lesbian lover. Israel’s partner in selling her forgeries was a man — her gay best friend. At the end of the film, he dies of AIDS.

    I look through my stack of award nominees, and there’s not a single positive portrayal of straight white men.

  56. Red Pill Latecomer says:

    Novaseeker: That’s why the fag and fag ally reviews of it were negative — they didn’t like the way the gay was dealt with, too negative.

    Seems you’re right. I didn’t know about the reviews, so I googled and found this: https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/bohemian-rhapsody-2018

    There’s a scene in “Bohemian Rhapsody” I keep coming back to, because it’s symbolic of the film’s problems …

    One night, Freddie Mercury … missing the excitement of touring, throws a costume ball in his mansion. Dressed in an ermine cloak and a crown, he swings through the crowd, made up of men in various degrees of fabulous drag. The other members of Queen … sit together, visibly uncomfortable. Freddie greets them rapturously, and one of them says stiffly, “This isn’t really our scene, Freddie.” Later that night, Freddie hits on a waiter named Jim … who rebuffs him, saying, “Call me when you like yourself.”

    The more I think about this scene — the problems of which could fill an entire dissertation — the angrier I get. “Bohemian Rhapsody” … wants me to watch the costume ball scene and think, “Wow, I’m scared for Freddie. Freddie needs the stability of his (married, straight) band members to counteract the SUPER gay world he’s living in.”

    I struggled with this scene, I tried to give the filmmakers the benefit of the doubt. But what’s onscreen is what is intended. We are meant to side with the band members, we are meant to look at Freddie with the same discomfort about him acting so, well, gay. It’s unforgivable.

    Yep. Gay folks are really mad about this film.

  57. RichardP says:

    Re. Bohemian Rhapsody: I think Mercury told Mary Austin in the movie (and real life) that he thought he was bisexual. He continued to refer to her as the love of his life, and left the bulk of his estate to her. Queen manager Jim Beach was one of the producers of the movie. Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor served as creative and musical consultants on the film. (see the Wikipedia entry for the movie). Everybody “sees” the things they are familiar with, and so it is with this movie. In that context, the movie was structured to show that the phnomenon of the music group called Queen could have only existed in the presence of the distinct personalities that made up the group. When Mercury went his own way, neither he nor the other members could achieve separately what they easily achieved together. But when they re-joined forces, they created what some have said was one of the greatest stage performences ever given at the Live Aid concert. Mercury’s gayness was more or less a side story to this larger theme of the movie. Not just anybody could come together and be Queen, or The Rolling Stones, or any other group endeavor (music or non-music) where the whole is much greater than the sum of its parts could ever be.

    Re. The Favorite, the movie about Britain’s Queen Ann. I read somewhere that the “truth” of her sexual expression was researched rigorously. The producers felt that they were on solid ground in their portrayal (with the understanding that artistic license is taken even in biographies; see “Bohemian Rhapsody”), as Winston Churchill had in his memoirs some fairly detailed information about the Queen’s daliances.

  58. RichardP says:

    Re. Billy I don’t understand how a marriage could end after 30 years.

    Assume married around age 20. Thirty years later puts her around 50. Getting into prime pre-menopausal and menopausal territory. Production of estrogens and progesterone drops,which reduces their antagonistic effect against the testosterone that women do have. That allows the agressiveness of testosterone to become more predominate, and the “nurturing” side of a woman (assuming it was ever there) to become reduced.

    Folks who study these things have concluded that these biological factors, coupled with social cues to seek a concious uncoupling, have led to a greater incidence of women taking the initiative to divorce around or after menopause. This may be a possible explanation for why wife took her small dissatisfactions and leveraged them as tools to get her loosed from Billy.

  59. Red Pill Latecomer says:

    RichardP: Folks who study these things have concluded that these biological factors, coupled with social cues to seek a concious uncoupling, have led to a greater incidence of women taking the initiative to divorce around or after menopause.

    Social cues, as in Lifetime and Hallmark romcoms, and romance novels, full of Beautiful, Smart, Strong Fortysomething Women, who ditch their Fat, Boorish Husbands, whereupon she is courted by an Awesomely Amazing Millionaire Hunk who finally appreciates her, and loves her children, and treats her like the Queen she is.

    Then there are all those tabloid stories about fortysomething female celebrities, dating men 10 to 20 years younger, and getting pregnant in their late 40s.

  60. Red Pill Latecomer says:

    Re: The Favourite … even if there is basis for the lesbian rumors, why make a film about it?

    The film had great costuming, hair, makeup, set decor. Were there no more important or interesting stories they might have told? Nothing about Queen Anne, or any other English historical person ca. 1680 – 1720, that might have made for a more interesting drama?

    Hollywood mines history for gay nuggets. If Hollywood were asked to make a film about the Sepoy Mutiny, or the Boxer Rebellion, the producers’ first question would be: Were any of the participants gay?

    @seventiesjason “I never understand this “thirst” or “obession” over the sex act….it was a mental illness in a way……….that they *had* to do this, it was a part of who they were. ”

    Rom 1 “For this reason God gave them over to dishonorable passions. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. Likewise, the men abandoned natural relations with women and burned with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. Furthermore, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, He gave them up to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. [..] Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things are worthy of death, they not only continue to do these things, but also approve of those who practice them.”

    The “they” of Romans 1 describes a wide group of people, but it includes at least some of those who we would consider homosexuals.

  62. Paul says:

    @RPL : “I look through my stack of award nominees, and there’s not a single positive portrayal of straight white men.”

    I’ve not seen it, but from a review I got the impression that Eastwood’s “The Mule” portrays a straight white man in positive light. Is it not nominated?

  63. Red Pill Latecomer says:

    The Mule isn’t nominated by any organization I’m a member of.

    Beautiful Boy is. I thought, oh, white men. But then I watched the trailer, and it looks like a film about a young drug addict and his troubled relationship with his father.

    The Wife is the most feminist film among the DVDs sent to me. Based on the trailer I saw, Glenn Close plays a wife who’s lived in her successful writer husband’s shadow all her life, and then rebels. The trailer suggests that Close’s character might have been a great writer, but her husband discouraged her. Instead, he expected her to be a supportive wife of his writing goals.

    I don’t usually go to movies, seeing Bohemian Rhapsody was a big deal bc I am an audiophile….and I like Queen. No, not my fav group by a longshot…..but I remember their songs as a boy and preteen at the end of the 1970’s…….riding in a station wagon…….it always seemed to be summer. Songs like “You’re My Best Friend” and the slew of other great songs they did. Queen put on an awesome prefomrance at Live Aid. That was a highlight of that concert for sure…..one of the more memorable performances. I remember watching that.

    An Elton John “biopic-musical-fantasy” called “Rocketman” is due in May of this year. I have a lot banked on this. The “old queen” himself, Elton John has given his blessing. It it supposed to focus on the first wave of his career (1970-1976) with flashes back to his teen years and youth. Elton despite becoming a caracicture of himself since the 1990’s and hasn’t really put out a decent album since about that time…..it should be good……

    FinDom – short for financial domination – thrives on the kinks of men who want nothing more than to be treated like utter dirt and to be ordered to cough up the dough.

    Hollywood would make them gay even if they weren’t, or would at least create supporting characters who were. There is literally NOTHING that perverted industry has put out over the last decade that hasn’t had gay characters in it somewhere within the plot. It’s all part of the Elite’s plan to so normalize homosexuality as to make the masses think that it has always been an accepted aspect of human society.

    Novaseeker,

    “Staying in a marriage is a unilateral decision.”

    What? With no-fault divorce, getting divorced is usually a unilateral decision. Thus staying married requires both parties’ continuing assent. While each one’s decision to stay is a unilateral decision, I suppose, it seems a roundabout way to express it, if that is what you intended.

    Off Topic: Happy Martin Luther King Jr Wasn’t a Christian Day!

    https://www.jesus-is-lord.com/king.htm (all original source documents contained at this link)

    The last doctrine in our discussion deals with the resurrection story. This doctrine, upon which the Easter Faith rests, symbolizes the ultimate Christian conviction: that Christ conquered death. From a literary, historical, and philosophical point of view this doctrine raises many questions. In fact the external evidence for the authenticity of this doctrine is found wanting. But here again the external evidence is not the most important thing, for it in itself fails to tell us precisely the thing we most want to know: What experiences of early Christians lead to the formulation of the doctrine?

    The root of our inquiry is found in the fact that the early Christians had lived with Jesus. They had been captivated by the magnetic power of his personality. This basic experience led to the faith that he could never die. And so in the pre-scientific thought pattern of the first century, this inner faith took outward form.

    ~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in “What Experiences of Christians Living in the Early Christian Century Led to the Christian Doctrines of the Divine Sonship of Jesus, the Virgin Birth, and the Bodily Resurrection”

    MLK did not believe in:

    1. The Divinity of Christ
    2. The Virgin Birth
    3. The Resurrection
    4. Christ’s atoning sacrifice
    5. The inerrancy of Scripture
    6. The Trinity
    7. Christ’s return

    MLK did believe that:

    1. Christianity grew out of mystery cults like Mithraism
    2. The Genesis story (particularly the Garden and fall of Man) is a myth

    MLK was also wildly immoral:

    In short God did a lot of good through the civil rights movement King lead, but it was in spite of him, not because of him.

  71. Paul says:

    @RPL : “While some men bemoan begin frivorced, other men are sexually aroused by being financially stripped”

    There’s no end to the depths of depravity.

  72. All of this man-bashing will culminate during the Super Bowl commercials on 3 February.
    However, it will conveniently die down right in time for Valentine’s Day, as we look to flowers, dinner dates and chocola….oh wait a minute:

    Only for the woman in most cases today.

    King more or less openly admitted that he had abandoned his belief in Christ by the time he was a teenager. His only reason for becoming a preacher was to use (what passes for) the “church” in the black community as a platform for social justice warfare. Needless to say, widespread knowledge and recognition of this would have ZE-RO impact on his status as a demi-god among the progs, as none of them believe in Christ either, all of their posturing to the contrary nothwithstanding.

    Once you strip King of all of his ill-gotten and unearned accolades and credentials, he becomes Mr. Michael Luther King, Jr., and a man who was not only not exceptional in any way, but rather reprehensible by any standards of human decency.

    Novaseeker — “That’s why the fag and fag ally reviews of it were negative — they didn’t like the way the gay was dealt with, too negative.”

    There you go. Bueno.

    I lived/worked in SF during the Eighties and early Nineties. Many folks at work were homos and occasionally we hung out after hours. I got hit on lots in SF but nobody pushed it too far, I was a little sparky in those days, guess it showed.

    It’s a whole life, for both the male and female fags. Homo Life. Sex is central w/the males, the lezzies not as much, but with both it’s an entire sub-cultural immersion . . . their own bars/restaurants, music scenes, orgy centers, etc. Especially the lezzies, one night a friend from my writing workshop (she had some talent actually) took me to a south-of-Market lez club. I was the only male, praps they assumed I was homo, anyways it was rather tame compared to the men’s gatherings. A sorta rumba-line dance, where at the end of the line the chick got kissed, that was the main activity. Plus yapping and guzzling of course. Might have been sweet if . . . well you know.

    Pore ole Freddie, all that money and fame and the boy didn’t have one real friend in the world. Now he ain’t ever gonna have one.

    Yep. That’s the Scripture my mind runs to when I hear the acronym ‘AIDS’.

    Oscar — “In short God did a lot of good through the civil rights movement King lead, but it was in spite of him, not because of him.”

    God had nothing to do with the Civil Rights Movement — the movement that legitimized and institutionalized across the Western World feminism, homosexuality, race-scamming/Total Racialism, and on and on.

    The Civil Rights Movement was/is a project wholly owned-n-operated by satan and company. Very likely it’ll prove the death-knell for America, and probly other culturally-allied countries.

    Well, I stand corrected. All those years I thought my wife was just rationing me infrequent sex for money and manipulation, like a mean whore. I guess I was just underappreciating her efforts to give me absolutely topnotch FinDom, and missing out on all the fun of being treated like utter dirt. And now I’ve probably lost the best Financial Dominatrix that a man could ever hope to find.

    Nice video but needed 30 seconds of … “and despite all the ungrateful crap going on in society we still show up and move society forward with some pictures of men on the moon and victorious soldiers and physicists and mathematicians and doctors, mechanics, electricians, construction workers, architects, judges, CEOs, etc.

    Also, my boys have on their own already exchanged “sissy” and “wimp” with Gillette man- at least in our house.

    When we can see the destruction of the black family slowly followed by low class whites, which led to 60 million abortions in a nation of 330 million, and the use of “Civil Rights” to target and destroy Christian businesses for not bending the knee to homosexuality …

    I’m at a loss to what the good the civil rights movement King lead was.
