A Sane Layman Looks at Gender Madness

1,435 words

Jim Goad
Gender Psychosis: Insanity and Sexual Identity
Pine Lake, Georgia: Obnoxious Books, 2020

One of the strengths of this new collection of short pieces about today’s sexual confusions is that the author has no qualifications for writing them. Qualifications for writing about sex go mainly to the sources of our confusion. Thanks to an overabundance of experts, Read more …

The One Perversion That Can’t Be Normalized

1,222 words

Netflix thinks pimping preteens is a great way to market its new movie Cuties. The French film follows a dance troupe of 11-year-old girls who discover their “femininity.” Netflix advertised the film with images of the girls in suggestive outfits, which inevitably drew a public backlash. The streaming giant apologized for the advertisements Read more …

Taylor Swift’s Folklore

1,718 words

Author’s note: Tomorrow marks one year of my writing for Counter-Currents.

Storytelling

2,246 words

Storytelling (2001) is the most politically incorrect movie I have ever seen. Indeed, it is so un-PC that it could never have been made today.

Director Todd Solondz is a really sick guy. His films Welcome to the Dollhouse, Happiness, Palindromes, and Life During Wartime can justly be accused of fixating on bullying, rape, pedophilia, abortion, suicide, and murder. Read more …

The Birds
Or: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Coronavirus (But Were Afraid to Ask Hitchcock & Heidegger), Part Eight

5,468 words

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7

At first, we hear the sound of birds singing. The sound is pretty and harmless. Is it the lovebirds in the kitchen? Then we hear fluttering and flapping. This grows louder and louder and the pretty singing of a moment before is replaced by angry cawing and screeching. It is one of the most interesting scenes in the entire film. Read more …

Stephen Baskerville’s The New Politics of Sex

1,893 words

Stephen Baskerville
The New Politics of Sex: The Sexual Revolution, Civil Liberties, & the Growth of Governmental Power
Kettering, Ohio: Angelico Press, 2017

Shortly after I graduated from high school, a young woman of my acquaintance fell pregnant. This was a scandal, of course, but the more alarming part of the situation was the fact that the father of the baby acknowledged paternity but refused to marry. Read more …

The Ugly Truth Behind Beauty

1,629 words

It was tempting for me to write off this opinion piece from Elle as lightweight, semi-feminist pap. That, of course, was my first thought, judging from its precious and angst-ridden title: “There’s Nothing Effortless About Being A Woman — And I’m Done Pretending Otherwise.” Not surprisingly, reading the article did reinforce this impression.

Weinstein’s Demise is No Victory

Harvey Weinstein leaving the New York Supreme Court. Justin Lane, for Shutterstock.

1,099 words

Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was convicted of criminal sexual assault and rape in the third degree this week. He did catch a break in being found not guilty of the more serious charges of predatory sexual assault and rape in the first degree.

Weinstein’s conviction was celebrated by President Trump and many of his supporters. Read more …

Prince Simp

1,340 words

Nothing humiliates the British royal family more than an American divorcee.

King Edward VIII gave up his throne to marry the twice-divorced Wallis Simpson in 1936. Now Edward’s great-great nephew, Prince Harry, is resigning from the royal family to please his wife, Meghan Markle, a previously-divorced mulatto actress. Read more …

Definitely no logic:
Björk’s Debut

Björk

2,068 words

Björk’s music is full of range and dimension. This is true both in the sense of her voice, which sweeps across octaves with equal helpings of elegance and coarseness, but also in her varied inflection and choice of songwriting material. One could plot her music on a chart with two poles that span innocence and seductiveness, alongside harmony and discordance, and find that she dances around in all four quadrants Read more …

The Sexes:
Complementary, Not “Equal”

Peter Paul Rubens, Venus and Mars, between 1632 and 1635

3,563 words

A key component of the ideology currently dominant in the West is the “equality” of the sexes and the consequent struggle to eliminate “discrimination” between them. If this doctrine seems plausible to many people, it is because it appeals to the basic principle of fairness that like cases ought to be treated alike. If women are no different from men, it cannot be fair to treat them differently. Read more …

Feminists Don’t Share

Typical Feminist

1,057 words

So I’m sitting in my local suburban library doing my writing thing and at a table across the room some old ladies have gathered for “Senior Crafts Hour”. One of the younger librarians appears with a box of paper and glue and scissors. They are going to do collage, or maybe they’re just going to cut things out and glue them to other things.

Sága alternativní pravice o čtyřech dějstvích. Část čtvrtá.

Sága alternativní pravice aneb tudy cesta nevede…

2,504 slov

English original here

Předchozí části: prvnídruhátřetí.

Bělošský nacionalismus 1.0 & 2.0

V roce 2015, kdy se nová alternativní pravice postupně začínala sžívat s myšlenkou bělošského nacionalismu, měla většina s ní spojených lidí jen velice matné povědomí o předchozích generacích hnutí. (Blogger) Lawrence Murray se například svěřil s tím, že „osobně nikdy neslyšel o [Williamu] Pierceovi ani [Davidu] Dukeovi… dokud nenarazil na alternativní pravici.“ Read more …

Is God Sexist?

Pieter de Grebber, God Inviting Christ to Sit on the Throne at His Right Hand (1645)

1,245 words

I was at one of my Twelve Step meetings the other day, and as happens to all such groups sooner or later, they are going through their “God is sexist” moment.

In case you don’t know, all the Twelve Step groups – Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Gamblers Anonymous, and a host of others – are “God-based” programs. Read more …

Welcome to the Capitol Hill Polycule

Katie Hill

1,917 words

What would politics be without sex scandals? Everyone knows lawmakers often engage in lurid affairs and try to keep their private lives out of the public eye. When they get caught, it’s front-page news and red meat for late-night comedy.

The latest political sex scandal is different from the past ones, however. It doesn’t feature a powerful man frequenting high-end hookers or jet-setting off with a hot young staffer. Read more …

I am Mother

1,618 words

How do you break into Hollywood? Director Grant Sputore and writer Michael Lloyd Green might have a few tips for you in their first full-length feature film for Netflix. Released in 2019, their debut, I am Mother, does all it can to please the Hollywood elite and bring a warm glow of smug satisfaction into the bleeding hearts of their old college professors.

It takes a man to write a great feminist movie, and with their all-female cast, these two guys lay it on twice as thick. Read more …

Sex & Politics at the Euro-Hostel

Max Beckmann, The Night (Die Nacht), 1918-19.

1,689 words

I’ve been staying in some hostels on my recent trip to Europe. A situation that happens: I arrive late, enter a dark dorm room, crawl into one of the empty bunk beds, and wake up the next morning to find several young women asleep in the beds around me. Except for the thought, “Where are my pants?” it’s not a serious problem. But it does make you wonder why the girls don’t have a separate room. Read more …

Yet More Oppression Porn:
The Handmaid’s Tale, Season Three

1,325 words

The third season of The Handmaid’s Tale is well-crafted in almost every way. The cinematography is outstanding. The dialogue is good. The acting is excellent. Its fictional universe is interesting, and it has a dark, dystopian beauty to it. However, the season doesn’t hang together. I got quite bored with it and stopped watching after getting enough information to scrape together a review. (I know what happens in the rest because I cheated and read the plot summaries after watching two-thirds of the season.)

Feminism, End & Beginning

614 words

It is superficial thought that causes some to call themselves feminist or anti-feminist. The usual definitions of feminism, from womyn’s empowerment to sexual egalitarianism, serve to curtail thought – therefore we shall not define feminism here. Instead, we will look at synchronicities, to help us better understand our time and place.

Ryan T. Anderson
When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment

TERFs & Transsexual Men

2,539 words

TERF is an acronym for “trans-exclusionary radical feminist.” It is also a slur. Unlike most political slurs, it is an accurate description of the people that the acronym describes.

TERF names the subset of radical feminists that opposes the inclusion of transsexual men (aka “transwomen”) in the category “woman.” Some radical feminists welcome men who believe they are women, and many others do not. TERF names the latter and contrasts them to the former. Read more …

Five Concepts from Chateau Heartiste

712 words

Like everyone, I held my breath almost every time I checked in on the website Chateau Heartiste. It seemed destined to be shut down in the present hostile climate. It was too spicey, too radical, too honest.

Then, on Friday, May 10, as I did my usual cruise around the internet, I summoned it from my bookmarks and was met with a blunt cancellation notice. This hit me harder than other recent shutdowns. Read more …

Redefining Masculinity at Portland State University

1,520 words

I saw the event Redefining Masculinity (April 16, 2019) listed in my local independent weekly. It said the panel discussion would be partially inspired by the documentary The Mask You Live In. I’d never heard of this film, so I found it on YouTube and watched a little of it.

Women & Game of Thrones

1,360 words

“[T]hey fight for the ‘emancipation of women’ because it is under the form of a generous activity, under the banner of ‘For others,’ that they can most prudently forward their own little private separatism.” – Friedrich Nietzsche, The Will to Power

As Fróði and John pointed out on Guide to Kulchur, it was superfluous for Game of Thrones’ writers to include multiple scenes of little girls displaying their bravery in a recent episode. Read more …

Far from the Madding Crowd

2,305 words

John Schlesinger’s 1967 adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s 1874 novel Far from the Madding Crowd should be a universally recognized cinema classic. But although it received generally positive reviews and did well in England, today it is virtually unknown, even among my friends who are film buffs.

I am going to comment on the movie only, not the book, which I have not read. Read more …

Captain Marvel: A Review

1,789 words

America has to once again endure a terrible, big-budget girl power film from Hollywood.

Captain Marvel is receiving much praise from critics and journalists as the first feminist superhero movie. The Marvel film, starring Brie Larson as the titular female superhero, has been propelled by non-stop propaganda. Multiple movie theaters made Captain Marvel the only film they would play last weekend. Read more …
