Is Progress A Bonfire?

Ace blogged about this latest stage of bovine spongiform in-search-of-emphathy:

Feeling anxious about your labia? Just stick a cellphone camera between your legs, post the photo to the Internet, and invite strangers to discuss what you’re working with. That’s the theory behind the Large Labia Project, a submission-based Tumblr that encourages women to air their insecurities (and their vaginal selfies) in the spirit of “labia pride.”
Here’s how it works: Take a photo of your vagina. Share your feelings. (“Hey! I’m so self-conscious and feel insecure about showing my labia.”) Then shoot it over to 24-year-old moderator Emma, who will invariably heap praise on your submission.

Niedermeyer’s Dead Horse pointed out a similar site for boobies. I like to troll Ace’s posts as #OccupyResoluteDesk, and offered the following:

All right. The first one of you mungheads that submits my picture is totally going to the gulag.

The rest of the comments are predictable Ace fare. Read if you dare.

But step back and admire societal decay for a moment. By ‘decay’, I mean the trashing of the traditional objects such as family, women, and men begetting children that are born in liberty and raised to adulthood, so that they can marry, and society perpetuates. While paying only lip service to the labia site, and without waxing too evangelical about the topic, lest a man get lost in a sinkhole of bad subtextual humor, the more important question is: how do we laugh these people into growing up?

I’ll contend that the people out to degrade people by coaxing them into displaying their privates in public are related to the ones who foment academic inquisitions: “First and foremost, never assume that historical accuracy is any defense.” Now, wait just a godforsaken minute. Have we reached such a state of decay, of inversion, in the name of Progress that our academic and cultural leaders are actively retarding the growth of individuals?

It’s as though, in the quest for power over individuals that all notions of liberty, of classical liberal discourse, of rationality itself, are increasingly used as fuel to keep people in an infantile, state-dependent cocoon. Coaxing women to paste pictures of their naughty bits is seemingly part of an indoctrination process. Could there be some. . .abortion waiting in the wings? Maybe, maybe not.

And my point here is not to engage in fear mongering about what the Godless Commies are trying to do to our Precious Bodily Fluids. Quite the contrary. My hope is that people would step back away from the situation, take a breath, consider the historical trend here, and set about rejecting the silly, ahistorical, irrational course we’re on. We have to reject it personally, at the ballot box, and in dialog with neighbors to mature out of the rut.

Tell the girlfriend “You’d be twice as lovely with half the plaster.” Teach daughters that modesty is the most powerful form of feminine allure. When she’s old enough, support her academic interests in going to a school with actual education, not indoctrination. Also, that motherhood is a noble and vital profession, and to ignore the diabolical lies of the feminazis. These Progressives have burned our culture down to ash in their quest for power, and our task is to rise from those ashes, phoenix-like. Let us show that our cultural traditions, while not invulnerable to Commie assault, can outlast it.

    It’s all about the Special Snowflake Syndrome. We are living in the era of Special Snowflakes. If you are a woman you have a vagina, and it’s not special, it’s just part of women’s anatomy. When these people leave home where their parent’s praised them for no good reason to boost their self esteem, and made sure they got attendance awards even if they didn’t win, they start feeling withdrawals from the lack of false artifice.

    Look at the make up of OWS they are the results of “fad” parenting.

    special snowflake A member of that newly-adult, me’er-than-me generation which expects attention and praise just for being themselves — doing anything to deserve it is completely optional.

    Just…wrong. So effing wrong I do not have the capacity to explain how wrong this is.

    Feminism has gone from empowering women to…online photos of our private areas. Forward!

    I know someone must have already coined the label “Pervertsives” for these deviants attempting to drag the rest of mankind into their disgusting gutter. Just remember they are not the majority and stop allowing them a platform to spread their disease.

    These misguided folks with “special” labia……are also the ones least concerned with what goes into or is removed from theirs. But of course life and loving relationships couldn’t possibly be as special as that fine piece of flesh. When they start standing up for the clitoris we might have a fighting chance against the Muslims who prefer that “special” part surgically removed on their women.

    Now there is no mystery left. As a man, half of the fun was the fantasy of a beautiful woman, every part of her anatomy is interesting and full of wonder. The card carrying femenist have ruined any chance of romance now days. thanks, no wonder more and more males do not marry….

    As usual, a lot of the comments at Ace’s were funny. But also as usual, a sizeable chunk of the horde is clearly obsessed with a need for people to look like the Roswell alien or something. You know, no body hair, no protruberances.

    Maybe kids grew up with too many anatomically impossible action figures or something.

    Then there’s the whole, “obsession” business that leads people to hate reality. I suppose next we’ll have “Show us your warts!” photo sets and eventually youtube vids of people’s colonoscopies.

    Well, we can chalk that up to pr0n, which has convinced a lot of people who don’t know any better that it’s all smooth and hairless down there, and anything less is old-fashioned and wrong.
