How anti-abortion people are legitimatizing unmarried teenage pregnancy

with 59 comments

I’ve written about this topic before, but here’s a New York Times article the clearly demonstrates what’s happening.

An 18-year-old unmarried pregnant girl, the boyfriend who got her pregnant completely out of the picture and not named by the article, attends a small private Christian school, which is shaming her by not allowing her to attend the graduation ceremony.

Sounds reasonable to me considering that pre-marital sex is considered a major sin by Christians. This isn’t public school. Fifty years ago, she probably would have been kicked out. Fifty years ago, good Christian parents wouldn’t have wanted their pregnant unmarried teenage daughter to be seen in public and they would have sent her away somewhere and made her give up the baby for adoption. But no, that’s not what happens today, she continues to go to school with plans to become an unmarried mom, just like some girl from the ghetto.

But this modern leniency is still not enough for the anti-abortion people.

“She made the courageous decision to choose life, and she definitely should not be shamed,” said Kristan Hawkins, the Students for Life president, who tried unsuccessfully to persuade the administrator of Heritage Academy to reverse the decision. “There has got to be a way to treat a young woman who becomes pregnant in a graceful and loving way.”

So acting like a typical ghetto teenager means that she’s labeled as “courageous.” A great way to encourage more teenage sex and more unmarried teenage moms is to laud them for their “courageous” decision to commit the sin of premarital sex and then let nature take its course.

She said she felt that she was being treated more harshly than students who have been suspended for, say, underage drinking and lying about it.

Of course she should be treated more harshly! Drinking alcohol merely violates a secular rule, while premarital sex is considered, by Christians, to be a major sin against God.

Ultimately, and ironically, the actions of anti-abortion people are causing more premarital teenage sex which leads to more pregnancies and more abortions.

Blue collar men’s room

Today I had the pleasure of using the men’s room in a warehouse that’s not open to the general public. In the men’s room there was a big pin-up poster of a young woman wearing only lingerie.

I found it amusing that blue collar men who work in warehouses are allowed to look at that when they use the bathroom, while men who work in white-collar offices in Manhattan have to pretend that they are eunuchs.

What are middle-aged men good at? Part 2

Mother Nature intended for middle-aged men to be good at being fathers (to their now older children) and grandfathers.

“Lion o’ the Turambar” (whose pseudonym, I think, is a Tolkien reference) said that “Coaches, boy scout troop leaders, church ushers, Kiwanis, and volunteer mentors are almost always middle aged men.” These are examples of middle-aged men using their paternal skills for the good of the community.

Unfortunately, none of this stuff is very valuable in the corporate world. Nor useful for men who never had children and therefore never developed their paternal skills. And furthermore, Betty Friedan taught us that happiness comes from a self-actualizing career, and not from the parent and grandparent stuff.

Would you all like Betty Friedan a lot more if you knew that she is accused of being racist, classist, and homophobic?

What are middle-aged men good at? Driving!

A commenter recently asked, “what are middle-aged men good at?”

The answer is driving without getting into an injury-causing accident.

Most charts that look at accident rates don’t adjust by the number of miles driven, so they tend to give results that favor women and seniors who drive fewer miles (because it’s the working-age man who drives to work every day, putting himself at risk of injury or death).

However this chart shows us the correct answer, that men aged 40-59 are the safest drivers.

* * *

My interpretation of this chart.

I believe that reflexes and quick thinking peak around the age of 20. However, middle-aged men benefit from accumulated driving experience, as well as being more cautious and more responsible (as in obeying traffic laws, wearing seatbelts, not driving while drunk). These attributes which cause middle-aged men to be safer drivers may be called wisdom.

Past the age of 60, however, reflexes and quick thinking really start to take a nosedive, and therefore driving safety decreases as men age beyond 60. Plus some of the oldest drivers are suffering from early Alzheimer’s disease which may cause them to be less cautious and responsible.

* * *

Self-driving cars will drive more safely than middle-aged men, so in just a few years, this one thing that middle-aged men are good at will become obsolete.

Society has lost all common sense with transgender crap

Man becomes a woman and then wins woman’s weightlifting competition.

Isn’t there any common sense in this world? If you are/were a man, you shouldn’t be allowed to compete in women’s sports, no matter how much weird surgeries and hormone treatments that you’ve had.

Also, we need to stop pretending that a man can become a woman and vice versa. People can only become freaks, not the other sex.

Divorce and social class

Commenters have been touting the extremely misleading statistic that early marriage has a higher likelihood of divorce, forgetting the rule not to confuse correlation with causation.

Higher social class people are less likely to get divorced. Higher social class people don’t marry before they are finished graduating from college, because it’s just not what their social class does.

Thus a marriage that takes place at an age prior to college graduation predicts low social class which in turn predicts a higher likelihood of divorce, but it’s not because they got married at an earlier age, it’s because they came from a bad pedigree in the first place.

There’s no premarital sex in Utopia

Thomas More writes in the book Utopia (as translated by Paul Turner):

Any boy or girl convicted of premarital intercourse is severely punished, and permanently disqualified from marrying, unless this sentence is remitted by the Mayor. The man and woman in charge of the household in which it happens are also publicly disgraced, for not doing their jobs properly. The Utopians are particularly strict about that kind of thing, because they think very few people would want to get married – which means spending one’s whole life with the same person, and putting up with all the inconveniences that this involves – if they weren’t carefully prevented from having any sexual intercourse otherwise.

Thomas More would not have been surprised that, after the so-called sexual revolution, when the belief that premarital sex is sinful came to replaced with the belief that people who don’t have premarital sex are losers, the result would be a severe decline in marriage.

We have a lot sociologists today who are befuddled by the decline, but the relationship between premarital sex and the desire to get married was plain old common sense to a guy living in the early 1500s.

Serena Williams to marry nerdy white guy

Wow!

* * *

Absconding an image of the nerdy white guy is the most likely case where some grumpy pissed-at-the-world photographer will sue me for copyright infringement.

To see what the nerdy guy looks like, use Google.

Women better doctors than men. Fake research?

This scholarly research found a statistically significant difference in outcomes of hospitalized medicare patients depending on whether they were treated by a male or female physician.

The study then assumes that his must be because the women are better doctors than the men!

I think it’s more likely that patients were not randomly assigned to doctors, but rather when a patient seemed to be in very bad shape, that patient was more likely to be assigned to a male doctor who was viewed by the hospital staff as more competent than female doctors. (I’m not saying that the male doctors ARE more competent, but that gender bias, which is well documented by SJW-types, causes hospital staff to think so and that influences assignments.) Or perhaps the male doctors were more likely to self-assign themselves to the worst-off patients because they liked to challenge themselves.

Without an investigation into whether doctor assignments were random, this “research” is meaningless and bogus.

As a caveat, the study does talk about randomness of assignment, but they reach the easy conclusion that they are smart enough to determine that assignments are random merely based on the statistical dataset they were working with.

In Japan, many are virgins

Interesting news from Japan:

[A] survey of unmarried people aged 18 to 34 found that around 42 per cent of men and 44.2 per cent of single women had never had sex. … The last time the study was conducted in 2010, only 36.2 per cent of men and 38.7 percent of women said they were virgins.

That’s a lot different than the United States where virginity in that age group is so rare it can be considered deviant behavior.

I believe that HBD is responsible for the difference, and that the Japanese genotype is unable to deal with modern times which call for marriage being delayed until young people are finished with their education and have a career track. But don’t worry about the Japanese race dying out, what will happen is that natural selection will cause a vast increase in Japanese sex drive after a few generations like this. If you want to know what Japan will be like in two hundred years, you need to look at how the minority of Japanese who are actually having a lot of children differ from the rest of their society.
