A taste of armageddon

When the twenty-third episode of the original Star Trek series first aired on February 23, 1967, little did they know how prophetic it would be. In this episode, the crew of the Enterprise visits a planet engaged in a completely computer-simulated war with a neighboring planet, but the casualties, including the Enterprise's crew, are supposed to be real. Although praised as allegorically powerful, the premise seemed almost too implausible to make a compelling story according to critics at the time. But that was before the Feminist War On Sex in which we are currently mired. Now it is seen as completely normal to lock men up for computer-simulated crimes. This is no longer a metaphor or philosophical speculation about how war could be "sanitized," but our everyday "criminal-justice" reality.

Let us take the most low-tech scenarios first. A sting operation is a simulation, a game, and it is considered plenty justification to lock men up. And then there is online sexual abuse and so-called image-based sexual abuse which is completely virtual but considered fully real crimes of which the metaphysics isn't the least bit suspect to the normies -- exactly like the docile aliens in Star Trek who obediently enter the disintegrator after a computer simulation tells them they are supposed to be dead. They literally believe these norms are reasonable and Kirk is a barbarian for wanting to keep it real.

Simulated sex crimes have recently reached their conceptual limit in AI-generated porn, and the normies dutifully oblige the simulated war with offerings of real casualties. Now there is a rush to criminalize this last bit along with the other fake nonsense if it isn't criminal already. Currently the news is full of titles like "Outcry in Spain as artificial intelligence used to create fake naked images of underage girls" -- and the normies gobble it up as a justification to make more real casualties out of men. The "scientific" journals are likewise full of deference to the simulation game, as one would imagine the corresponding "war studies" to be in Star Trek. Here's a fresh example: "Experiences of Online Sexual Violence: Interviews With Swedish Teenage Girls in Psychiatric Care," reifying this "violence" in a journal called Violence Against Women. The normies are so duped they don't even think about all this "violence" being completely simulated:
The technological development of the internet and smart devices has in many ways been positive, but has also created more arenas where sexual violence can take place. In recent decades, research of sexual violence has expanded and now also consider online arenas (Jonsson et al., 2019; Svedin & Jonsson, 2017; Zetterstrom Dahlqvist & Gillander Gadin, 2018). The modi operandi for online sexual violence include, but are not limited to, repeated requests for nude pictures, dickpics, online publication of nude pictures, and unwanted sexual advances such as unwanted solicitation, online grooming, and online rape.

Sexual violence is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as “any sexual act, attempt to obtain a sexual act, unwanted sexual comments or advances, or acts to traffic, or otherwise directed, against a person's sexuality using coercion, by any person regardless of their relationship to the victim, in any setting, including but not limited to home and work.” (WHO, 2012). It is regarded as a serious global public health problem, and can be perpetrated in different arenas, and in different modalities. In this article, we have used a broad definition of online sexual violence that includes a range of practices and events that have the common aspects of; being unwanted or perceived in a negative way by the subjected person; of a sexual nature; and perpetrated through some kind of digital media.

The prevalence of online sexual violence depends on how it is conceptualized and the method of measurements. Online sexual harassment, which is defined as being subjected, via electronic means to, for example unwelcome sexual comments, jokes, or gestures, or being asked to do something sexual when one does not want to, is thought to affect around 15% of American teenagers (Copp et al., 2021). A specific kind of online sexual harassment that has become ubiquitous in the present time is receiving unrequested pictures of male genitals, the so-called dickpic (Ringrose et al., 2021). The prevalence of receiving a dickpic among youth is not extensively researched, but some research suggests that for women who had at one time received a consensual dickpic, 90% had also received unwanted dickpics (Marcotte et al., 2021).

Another form of online sexual harassment is unwanted requests or pressure to send nudes, so-called pressurized sexting. This is often tightly interwoven with the practice of consensual sexting (Ringrose et al., 2013, 2022; Thomas, 2018; Thorburn et al., 2021). The prevalence of sexting was around 20% in a Swedish sample of youth from 2014 but this had increased to 37% by 2021 (Jonsson et al., 2014; Svedin et al., 2021). A meta-analysis of four studies from Canada, the US, Europe, and the Czech Republic found a prevalence of having one's sext furthered without consent was 8.4% (Madigan et al., 2018), something that some researchers propose should go under the label of image-based sexual abuse (McGlynn et al., 2017)

There is also the case of more severe forms of online sexual violence, which is often referred to as online sexual abuse, or when the survivor is underaged: online child sexual abuse. The prevalence of online child sexual abuse among youth in a large community school sample in Sweden was around 0,5% (Svedin & Jonsson, 2017).
It is bizarre that all this passes as "violence" -- exactly equivalent to having a simulated war with real casualties. And men who suffer from wanker's delusion dutifully play along, thinking they have gotten sexual value out of nothing.

Captain Kirk is powerfully wise in "A Taste of Armageddon." This type of "sanitized" war is a nightmare horror when you think about it for a while or see it dramatized in this great episode. That interplanetary war has been going on for almost 500 years, with millions of casualties every year. It could only go on for so long because they had found a way to spare the infrastructure and make death painless or hidden like we do with prisons to which men similarly report with little or no fight. People obey an ancient "treaty" which says we roll over without a fight based on a decision made by a simulation. Why the hell should we obey such a treaty or "social contract" as the normies probably would dignify it? The crew of the Enterprise does not hesitate for one second. It is instantly clear what your attitude should be to that treaty, and watching the episode is a powerful lesson not just in rationality but how humans can live morally with our violent natures. Kirk does not deny that we have war in our blood, but the direct way to go about it was not so bad after all when you consider the "woke" alternative. When the horrors of war are on full display, at least it provides an incentive to make peace from time to time.

So, take a hint from Captain Kirk. Men must break the treaty which holds that we accept real punishment for imaginary crimes. If the feminists want war it must be a real war on both sides, not a one-sided one where men are real casualties for simulated crimes.

Your argument about virtual sex crimes is very compelling until you try to connect it with your "wanker's delusion" theory.
You mix up a clever analysis of contemporary madness with a catch-all condemnation of masturbation which is grounded in your own experience and not on hard facts. As if your impeccable demonstration could help push your extreme nofap theory.

No, you see, they go together. The wanker's delusion that masturbating to representations of females is sexually valuable and the feminist delusion that girls can be "sexually exploited" via these images are two sides of the same coin. You can't believe one without the other. I reject both, which is the only consistent way to reject the feminist theory of all this voodoo violence against women and happens to be true for men too because masturbation is truly worthless or worse -- harmful because it displaces real sexual effort and activity and (with porn) leads to erectile dysfunction.

Wow, Gabriel García Márquez was an awesome MAP!

Absolutely stunning if this is accurate. Makes Lolita look incredibly wimpy by comparison. Amazing that he hasn't been cancelled and the Newgon YouTube channel is still up too.

Speaking of censorship, we should probably follow Russell Brand to Rumble because the current escalation is very disturbing and makes it clear that YouTube will censor us for who we are not just our content there. Merely an accusation of something unrelated to your channel is enough. They are 100% unaccountable and untrustworthy, blatantly admitting that they censor people for off-platform behavior. This means we should never have used them in the first place because we are never safe no matter how carefully we follow their rules.

Texas teacher fired over Anne Frank graphic novel (that showed that she was a slut).

MenAreCowards said...

I've never read the Anne Frank diary but I understand she was pro-sexual. As much as I hate the poisonous female sex, I think we should show some respect for the girl Anne Frank by not referring to her as a slut.

Besides, slut would imply she made love to men; I am not aware of this.

Whatever, she's dead and couldn't care less. Just another useful pawn to whomsoever wishes to use her image.

Eivind Berge said...

Anne Frank was a nice girl, very sex-positive. Her sluttiness was perhaps not realized due to unfortunate circumstances, but in any case sluts should be celebrated. I am shocked that Anne Frank is now subject to cancellation because I thought she was one of the last people the normies would do that to.

The unedited version of Frank’s diary has been withdrawn from schools in conservative states Texas and Florida amid complaints about its sexual content. Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed legislation in 2021 that restricts how certain subjects, including race and gender, can be taught in the classroom. The state has banned more than 400 books from its schools.

Ari Folman, the artist who helped to create ‘Anne Frank’s Diary: The Graphic Adaptation’, said in an interview with NBC News he was “devastated” that a teacher had been fired for teaching children about the historical significance of Anne Frank.

This is another high-water mark of antisex bigotry and it seems the cutting edge is coming from conservatives rather than feminists this time. But the only difference is the liberals will restrict sexuality to a narrow age gap while conservatives seek to purge youth culture of sexuality altogether. They are about equally hateful and as we can see from Jessica Valenti above, the approach of equating teenagers with babies is even more removed from reality than simple book burning.

Jessica Valenti seems to underestimate the fact that most of those "babies" are so sexually innocent that they would make her little bed shake...

Those are dismal numbers for age gap positivity even among men. Only 13% of men there have an attitude similar to mine (and 3% of women)...

The trend continued with bigger age gaps - as almost a fifth (17%) of men said it was somewhat or completely acceptable for a 16-year-old girl to have sex with a man up to 40 years old, compared to just 4% of women feeling this way.

When it comes to a 16-year-old girl being in a sexual relationship with a man aged 50 or older, more than one in 10 men (13%) thought this was acceptable compared to 3% of women.

Overall, 48% of people said they either tended to or strongly supported the idea of raising the age of consent from 16 to 18, while 40% said they supported the idea of staggered consent, in findings similar to those from a YouGov poll earlier this week.

The UK public looks ripe for raising the age of consent if that's representative because even if there is slightly less than majority support at 48%, who is going to oppose it? Maybe 1-10% at best or just us sexualists and MAPs, I would think.

The only good news is people think a staggered age of consent is more distasteful than raising it absolutely.

Have to laugh at this:

Speaking to BBC Radio Women's Hour earlier this week, Alice said her mother had breakdowns because "there was nothing that she could do to protect me from being in that relationship" due to the fact the teenager was the legal age to consent to sex at the time.

Alice said: "People say 'well, just call the police'. And then what? I was legally allowed to be there."

What kind of argument is that? A parent disapproves of a relationship, so it should be illegal? I am sure parental disapproval of certain relationships does not magically go away at 18 either.

Age of consent and women supremacy are a system. The system appears powerful now because it’s at the height of its power, but inside it’s rotten, systems and regimes are often at the height of their power when they collapse.

When it comes to MAPs, the United States, United Kingdom and European Union is the Ancien Régime of our time. And I’ve long thought that the system of MAP oppression is not only rotting alive but when it collapses it will be so swift and dramatic that the vast vast majority of men won’t believe the rapidity of change.

The effort to “raise the AOC to 18” is a hysterical lashing out of a dying system; it’s death rattle is not far off.

Goddamn UK men are faggots!

To only have a tiny majority over women approving age gap relationships and rejecting a staggered age of consent is completely beyond the pale. These "men" need to be killed off by a Russian nuclear winter, and it seems like that's exactly what they're gonna get as they push the Ukraine war on Russia.

I couldn't imagine the nightmare of living in the UK. Is it plastic in the water that's turned these "men" into little dainty fairy poofs?

I find it more and more difficult to blame women for this situation. It is natural for women to agitate for more sexual power over men and restriction, but it is completely unnatural to have such an embarrassing generation of absolute faggot men supplicating to women, thinking they will get laid from their gay, spineless virtue signaling.

Let's not forget it was male feminists, mostly conservative actually, that listened to women and changed the laws in favor of feminist concepts like universal suffrage and the age of consent. I wonder how much longer these weak, female dominated, fake male societies will continue to exist. Personally, I look forward to trannies destroying everything in these places.

At least the Brand story isn't quite what it was a few day days ago.
I have a feeling the danger represented by this particular story will pass.

I've followed the coverage trajectory of this report- and it was an item low down the page at the Fail for a couple of days, with 0 comments. I don't know what to make of that but now it says 82 comments but still none when I go there to check. It seems it hasn't been pushed as hard as it could have been.

Calls to raise the AOC in relation to this story appear to be all from the standpoint of men vs teen girls, predictably-just see Valenti's twitter page. I wonder if there's a barrier to raising the AOC due to the gay AOC having been equalized only in the 1990's and gays being a privileged class. I just hope they don't turn out to be so privileged that the AOC is only raised for heterosexual relationships. Do those who want to do so feel THAT bold yet?
