Kahomono - It Means Lucky

Random musings on whatever subject strikes my fancy that day.

Legalizing rape, that’s what supposedly serious people are talking about now.  Inspired by sexual, as opposed to religious, terrorists such as Alek Minassian and Eliot Rodger, who have somehow made mainstream a conversation about what they are calling “redistribution of sex.”

For those of you in the cheap seats, that means “making sex available” to the male assholes who cannot get it by being ordinary humans, most of whom can find a relationship when they want one – or recognize that there are things they could do to make that easier if they cannot.

“Making sex available” will necessarily mean, making someone who does not otherwise want to participate in that sex.  If you think this sounds a lot like rape, then yes, you too have at least one empathic bone in your body.  Which makes you that much better than the typical Pumpkin voter or Rethuglican, so thank you for that.

It will not surprise you that this simple fact has escaped the notice of such luminaries as the New York Times’ senior troglodyte, or a “conservative” “economist” from George Mason University (Go Slaveholders! yee-haw!).  By the way, does anyone want to take bets on how that same creep from GMU might feel about redistributing dollars?

What is disgusting is that we now have to spend oxygen, neurons and digital ink swatting away people who watched The Handmaid’s Tale and thought, Yeah, I’d like to live in that world.


The Struggle Is Real

The man-box is real.  The damage it does is real.  To the men in it, to those around them, and to society.  I have written a bunch on this in the past.

But of course, these guys don’t have anything like the answer.

Pumpkin is the president of the man-box, so it’s not the least bit surprising that this kind of brain-rot is thriving right now.

Chipping Away

SNL has taken up the idea that the manbox needs to be busted.

Alone this is not going to create all the change we need… but it’s a start.



An excellent response to mansplaining.

The trouble is, you don’t always know so clearly as the folks around Gavin that a mansplain is coming.  And once it has arrived, now you’re in a game of Pigeon Chess.

Pigeon Chess is where a normal person tries to play chess with a pigeon.  The pigeon knocks over all the pieces, craps on the board, and then struts around thinking it has attained a victory.

Nonsensical Rifle Addiction.

The gun, and the violence for which it’s a tool, is part of the definition of Manhood that is drummed into every American male from birth.

If we could end the manbox and racism, this would be a humane society or something.  One problem is, though, that “humane society” is something American men, steeped in the manbox bullshit, have been trained to disparage, not desire.
