No Sex Please, We’re MeToo, Male Millennials

Family, Feminism, Gender, Kids, Sex

No sex please, we’re millennials,” in which The Economist minimizes the reasons for the gulf between the sexes:

… young people in America—as in Japan and some other rich countries—are having much less sex. The portion of Americans aged 18 to 29 who claim to have had no sex for 12 months has more than doubled in a decade—to 23% last year. That is, counter-intuitively, despite the removal of many impediments to sex. Young Americans are less religious and more relaxed about sexual orientation than they have ever been. They are also readier to experiment …

… Since 2008 there has been almost a threefold rise in the share of men under the age of 30 who claim to be having no sex. At the same time, the portion of sexless women increased by only 8%

BUT, “The biggest reasons for the ‘sex recession'” are mentioned only as an afterthought by the leftist magazine. They are “men’s dread of a #MeToo-style harassment charge.”

  a response to increased female empowerment, the major change in sexual politics, and therefore further exacerbated by men’s dread of a #MeToo-style harassment charge. In short, young American men with rather poor interpersonal skills currently face a historically confusing mating-game, even as they worry a lot about their careers. No wonder many are opting to stick to their video games.

UPDATED (6/5): NEW: Jared Packs Unicorns and Rainbows For Mideast Trip

America, Donald Trump, Gender, Israel, Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, Middle East, Populism

NEW COLUMN IS “Jared Packs Unicorns and Rainbows For Mideast Trip.” It’s now on WND.COM and the Unz Review.

An abridged version, “Bibi’s Cautious Conservatism May Clash With Jared’s New Peace Plan,” is on Townhall.com.

An excerpt:

JARED KUSHNER couldn’t stare down an uncompromising foe if his wife, Ivanka Trump, held his soft, lily-white hand throughout the ordeal.

Yet ridiculously, a May 22, McClatchy article claimed Mr. Kushner was fixing to “stare down uncompromising foes in fights over immigration and Middle East peace.”

Let us begin with our debutant’s Middle East peace plan, the thing his father-in-law calls “the deal of the century.”

The notion of Jared solving the Israeli-Palestinian vexation is laughable, perhaps the dumbest thing ever. You just know this is a vain Ivanka move to brand the region and add it to her CV. (Ivanka, to those who don’t know, is intent on riding to the presidency herself on her father’s coattails.)

The Arabs slated to partake in the Kushner summit, Bahraini, Saudi and Emirati participants, are likely laughing the hardest.

For one, the Arabs know that Ivanka is calling the shots—and that the president’s fashion-focused daughter is behind the branding of the sexually androgynous, intellectually inchoate production that is Jared Kushner. If you think that’s something Arabs respect, you don’t know Shiite from Shinola.

Wily Arabs are hip to White House dynamics. They know who’s running the West Wing and who to flatter. Some in the region have even given Donald Trump a dubious honorific, Abu Ivanka al-Amriki. Being known as “father of Ivanka the American” is, of course, no honor in the muscular, manly Middle East.

The timing of the Kushner peace plan is especially asinine. For all the upheaval in the region, the Palestinian Problem has nevertheless dropped off the geopolitical radar as an urgent matter to resolve. …

UPDATE (6/5): Jared definitely has those girl-like broad hips. His is not a man’s shape. The contrast is stark when he’s seen striding alongside these two military figures who have narrow hips and broad shoulders.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg: The New Face Of The Military

Gender, Government, Left-Liberalism, Military, Political Correctness

Samuel P. Huntington offered “a now-classic description of the military mind — conservative, realistic, and pessimistic about human nature.” Elsewhere in one of his books, Huntington mentions that the military was once, almost to a man, Republican.

No longer. And Mayor Pete Buttigieg is hardly exhibit A as to the progressive nature of the military. But he is a damn good one, for the military is reliably liberal.

The military is government. The military works like government; is financed like government, and sports many of the same inherent malignancies of government. Like all government-run divisions and departments, the US military is manacled by multiculturalism, feminism and all manner of outré sexual politics, affirmative action, and political correctness that kills.”

In other words, the military’s impetus is liberal.

TV’s Intersectional, Girly Femboys

Feminism, Gender, John McCain, Media, Sex, The Zeitgeist

“Let me be clear. When I allude to the women of TV, I include those with the Y Chromosome.”—TV Tarts: Cringe Factor Ad Infinitum, Part 2.

Indeed, as ghastly as the TV tarts are (read about them here), TV’s “girly boys” give them a run for their money.

Think Gabriel Debenedetti of Politico or Chuck Todd of MSNBC’s MTP Daily, of course.

Arms and hands windmilling like any network woman, Chuck’s every sentence is prefaced with that most feminine of affectations, “I feel like.”

Mr. Todd’s pouty exclamations are complemented by wild gesticulating and a habit of swaying back-and-forward energetically in his little swivel chair.

Todd is easily able to take up an entire segment riffing about the audacity of not liking John McCain.

“So many of the Trump base think of McCain as a traitor,” Chuck pondered. “Can you believe it?” The point being that it is not the attack on a dead man that our “girly boy” condemns, but a difference of opinion about John McCain.

Today, little Chuck issued an apology to a self-styled identity group: Tourette’s syndrome sufferers.

That makes Chuck a PC perfect little femboy.
