The Penis Ain’t But a Big, Swollen Clit or/

What Not to Shout Out in a Biker Bar

Here’s an example of another conversation that has probably never occurred in human history. She, wide-eyed and trembling with anticipation, says to him that she has never seen such a wondrous phallus. He replies that it was given him by his mom on his birth day. An acknowledgement or even the understanding of such reality is beyond the capacity of most men. That their prize possession was given them by a woman, OMG!  But then, they often spend half a lifetime trying to give it back

Because our species is mammalian, one segment is capable of taking advantage of a surplus of biological time not available to the other; i.e. the time females spend in menstruation, pregnancy and lactation. These mammalian requirements could, and apparently did, lead to the male segment’s use of this unearned surplus of leisure time to the detriment of the female and ultimately shaped all human destiny.

We have increasingly become aware of FGM, female genital mutilation, and in regions where prevalent it is said to have originated in Africa.  Indeed that apparently is the case.  During the era when Arabs were hunting and capturing Africans for the slave trade, they stumbled upon a tribe in South Africa, the Khoi, also called Hottentot. Those upstanding true believers were stunned by what they found.  The Khoi  women manipulated the genitalia of female infants from birth. In time the clitoris might attain a length of 2, possibly 3 inches and the labia grew accordingly.  The results were threatening enough that the macho Arabs were sore afraid it might influence their women. The rest is history but history twisted so as to have female genital mutilation seen as having sacred aspect and not as being a terrified male invention.

Ten millennia of increasingly complex human behaviors have been superimposed on a primeval, stunted, near crippling imbalance between the sexes. One result is male control, ranging from near to total, over the actions and privileges of females.  In modern terms what has happened to females is known as the Stockholm Syndrome. In it captives acquiesce over time to fondness, even love for their captors. At no major societal level, where input could decide outcome, is the female given equality.

But sadly, this statement or any other expressing similar opinions, receives outright rejection from a huge portion of male society. Males, who on other subjects are receptive, even progressive in their attitudes concerning fairness and balance, cannot accept true equality between the sexes. Therefore we grope about blindly layering more societal complexities on a skewed system with predictable results.

Every human undertaking thus far attempted thrives for a time and then fails.  Nothing lasts and probably nothing will under these biased circumstances. A glance at history should convince anyone that we are not behaving at all as an admirable, wholesome species; we are at best a clever one. Our sincerest efforts fail and the result is to attempt ever more of the same. A species out of balance with its own nature should not expect to be successful.

Seventeen Years of Peace/

4 Jun

Equals seven tenths of one percent of our total existence

 Our record as a peace loving nation is not anything like the image we have been led to believe.  According to The Free Thought Project    http://thefreethoughtproject.com/about-us/         America has been at war for 224 of the last 241 years since 1776.  If their calculations are accurate, perhaps you are as astounded as I am. This is the most incredible information I have received in years and frankly I don’t know how to handle it.  Is anything I have ever been taught, read about or learned from media been even close to honestly describing my nation’s basic nature in light of this indictment?

The Free Thought Project goes on to say that all wars are bankers’ wars and they profit from both sides. Perhaps this is so but the bankers must have had willing helpers. How did we manage to sleepwalk for two plus centuries with dreams of “the city on a hill”, our “exceptional nation” etc etc and quite freely disparage others for their war making proclivities without getting wise to it all?

  This line from D.H.Lawrence in his graphic novel “Quetzalcoatl” charges Mexico and other governments with encouraging our nefarious actions. “Of course money-lovers will want the United States Government, because it’s the one government that exists simply and solely to protect money.”

These are damning accusations and, if factual, leave most of our current event agonies banal and trivial in comparison.  All future Op Eds should also come with the caveat: {If the Free Thought  Project calculations are incorrect then this opinion is meaningful}
