Neat Trick

When grown-WAP women prostitute their grown WAPs for movie parts, it’s a huge scandal, there are enormous protests, and we are all tortured for years by somber proclamations about “the #MeToo era.”

But when 11-year-old girls are sexually exploited in diseased ways, nobody cares because some pedo WAP wailed how she’s a woke WOC WAP and we all immediately realized that pedophilia is super cool.

  1. “what is WAP”

    A number one song in a dying culture…

    “The entire post is mysterious”

    Think of the “Me too” movement (motivated by actresses whose self-prostitution did not bring them the careers they expected) and how this was supposed to be the worst thing ever.

    Think of the movie featuring sexualized young girls that has caused a lot of outrage for its pedophile friendly format and the ridiculous defenses thereof. I’m assuming Clarissa doesn’t want to give the movie in question any more publicity but it was discussed on this blog in the last month or so….


  2. An antidote to cancel culture (loved Douglass’s qualification most):

    (The article is protected, but it is written by Alan Jacobs promoting his latest book “Breaking Bread with the Dead: A Reader’s Guide to a More Tranquil Mind”)

    // Hate the Sin, Not the Book
    Reading works from the past can offer perspective—even when they say things we don’t want to hear.

    In Rochester, New York, on July 4, 1852, Douglass gave a speech called “The Meaning of July Fourth for the Negro,”

    Nevertheless, “for the good they did, and the principles they contended for, I will unite with you to honor their memory.”

    What, for Douglass, made the Founders worthy of honor? Well, “they loved their country better than their own private interests,” which is good; though they were “peace men,” “they preferred revolution to peaceful submission to bondage,” which is very good, and indeed true of Douglass himself; and “with them, nothing was ‘settled’ that was not right,” which is excellent. Perhaps best of all, “with them, justice, liberty and humanity were ‘final’; not slavery and oppression.” Therefore, “you may well cherish the memory of such men. They were great in their day and generation.”

    In their day and generation. But what they achieved, though astonishing in its time, can no longer be deemed adequate. Indeed, it never could have been so deemed, because they did not live up to the principles they so powerfully celebrated.

    Decades ago, I read an essay by a feminist literary critic named Patrocinio Schweickart about how feminists should read misogynistic texts from the past. She counseled them to face the misogyny but also to look for what she called the “utopian moment” in such texts, an “authentic kernel” of human experience that can be shared and celebrated. I think that’s what Douglass does. He has every reason, given what their sins and follies cost him and his Black sisters and brothers, to dismiss the Founders wholly, but he does not. “They were great in their day and generation.”
