maghaven I think trying to match the society of 14thC England under the Catholic Church is wildly at odds with the recent concept that’s being bandied around, modern men in the US are far more likely to watch pornhub than read Chaucer or Shakespeare or a restoration/regency play. Chaucer passed off the concept as tragic and comic, both far from the modern interpretation, I’m guessing you’ve read the Millers Tale too, I had to do it for my A-levels (again A and O levels have taken on different meanings). I’m guessing after many men have pornhubed cucking, they’ll see it in a bitter, nasty, brutal their worst fear way rather than tragic or comic.

@ WWTH – Alexei Nemov. That is all.

Yesterday at work I came back to my desk from a water break, and found a snake hanging out in my cubicle. It was a Northern Redbelly:

How it got in the building is a mystery. I’ve been a little jumpy this morning. It doesn’t help that there are electrical cords everywhere.

Hello.

Chiomara | November 6, 2015 at 12:23 am

I don’t know about the US, but in Brazil (maybe Latin America in general?), having horns is still sinonimous to being cheated on.

Does anyone know what does horns have to do with cheating, though?

I do not know if it is the real explanation, but here is one given in my country.
The expression “avoir des cornes” (to have horns) went back to dark ages. There were two kind of horns : bull horns for peasants, deer horns for aristrocrats, but evolution of the language tended to erase the distinction to just keep the horns. But the distinction is still adressed in some “barrack” and student songs.
Anyway, so, this distinction made some linguists thinking that while male peasants brought the cattle to the meadow and while the male aristocrats were hunting, their spouses have a good time with other mens.
It is one explanation, not the best, i think, because while i think it was possible for aristocratic women to have time for “bagatelle”, i hardly believe that peasant women have time for that, cause it was not an easy life.

Well, i leave the office soon, so have a nice week-end.

Also, cute snake squee! I once found an eastern fox snake in the front hallway, under a clothes-drying rack. It was a good size, too — three feet long, an adult. I picked it up with barbecue tongs and carried it back to the basement so it could slither back out through whatever hole it had entered from.

“Cuckolding is an old engkishbterm to do with the Cucook, the UK bird. It lays its eggs in another birds nest for them to feed it and in the process the baby cucook push out the fledglings of the host bird, a quick trip to Wikipedia would have answered that.”

– The Manosphere contends that its a billion times worse for a woman to cheat on her husband than for a man to cheat on his wife for a variety of reasons but the main one being paternity risk and raising another man’s child. But what about the wife and kids who’s husband and father are diverting his time, energy, affection and yes, financial and other material resources to a lover and her kid that she may have had by him? .

“The expression “avoir des cornes” (to have horns) went back to dark ages. There were two kind of horns : bull horns for peasants, deer horns for aristrocrats, but evolution of the language tended to erase the distinction to just keep the horns. But the distinction is still adressed in some “barrack” and student songs.
Anyway, so, this distinction made some linguists thinking that while male peasants brought the cattle to the meadow and while the male aristocrats were hunting, their spouses have a good time with other mens.”

– So then how did “bull” get associated with the lover if the bullhorns go on the cuckolded one?

” It is unrealistic to expect a person to be faithful to someone they were forced to marry and never found attractive.”

This is often expected in my culture, even now, through arranged marriage. I have older and a few younger extended family members who never “grew to love” their spouses and I don’t think all of them cheated. Probably not any, but I’m guessing. Its doable but far from ideal.

voot and the the manosphere would also agree that monkeys fky out of my arse if I had a concept that matches their mindset.

Their paternity concept is horrendously flawed, Irrespective of whether I blew a load of jism that sloshed around inside Mrs Autosoma’s bits, I was there from the outset so I bear a responsibility if care and that I love them. And before anyone casts nasturtiums on whether they’re mind I’m a Tay-Sachs carrier and they had to be tested in the first trimester.

The fuckers only focus on paternity because they want to absolve themselves of responsibility and have a reason to cling to bitterness and be nasty shits. I thought that would be blindingly obvious. Cucokding feeds their fears and insecurities (genial size and performance brhaviour) and hence becomes the ultimate relationship crime

Disney to retire all ‘Slave Leia’ merchandise:

http://mashable.com/2015/11/03/so-long-slave-leia/#rLpe7kfBW8qu

There will be whining. So much whining.

A discussion about this on Metafilter led to someone sharing this story:

“…a friend of mine was working at San Diego Comic-Con one year and was browsing through booths on her break. She realized the booth she was at had a large (presumably [hopefully] one of a kind) Slave Leia statue on a rotating pedestal, and that none other than Carrie Fischer herself was standing there eyeing it skeptically. As it rotates around, both she and my friend realize that the statue is, shall we say, unexpectedly anatomically detailed. Fischer rounds on the cringing booth owner and furiously proclaims, “I don’t recall licensing you to SCULPT MY SNATCH!”

Agreed. I never thought the Manosphere was getting their inspiration from Chaucer. I was just saying that the fear of Cuckoldry, which I felt came across pretty strongly in Chaucer, is pretty damn old and not completely ridiculous as it probably came from real conditions of his time.

As for the Manosphere. ….. well, yeah, part might be from pornhub or whatever … but a lot comes from the fact that these guys deliberately seek out shallow women who are motivated by things other than love or affection … and then act surprised when they end up not getting much love or affection. Quelle Surprise.

autosoma

Shallow Women, what a deliciously inappropriate phrase, Cuckolding feeds into the fears of the sayer, not the recipients. Just as I feel that a significantly vocal group within the manosphere uses pornhub for its definition of ideas and tropes. Pornhub searches are a good indicator of psycho-social-sexual trends within the manosphere. As many would agree they also get their weltanschauung and gender bias from porn as well, life and art who imitates whom first?

So … in a world filled with cheating, you think that the fear of getting cheated driven more by themes from fictional videos than it does from the lived experience of people?

I can’t read minds and haven’t taken any scientific polls so maybe I’m wrong … but in my experience, the kind of people paranoid about getting cheated on are (1) Habitual cheaters and/or (2) People who have been cheated on before. Pretty much every man watches online porn … but I’ve never met anyone who was abnormally jealous & paranoid about infidelity who didn’t fall into one (or both) of those two categories. That tells me that watching porn – even Cuckold porn – probably isn’t a major driver in paranoia about being cheated on.

I didn’t give enough credit to #1 before. A good number of these guys are probably paranoid because they are totally untrustworthy themselves …. and untrustworthy people rarely trust others.

However, I have little doubt that there is a fair number who fall into #2 as well.

Because the truth is that Cheating is very very common. By women as well as men.

Now that’s a breath takingly sweeping statement. “in a world full of cheating” Yes I do think fiction does drive the mindset you describe, whether mainstream media and from porn.

I have to say that I hold an entirely different mindset, I think actual cheating accounts for a small percentage of any sample group. My personal opinion is based on the belief that many people want to believe the rather salacious figures because it lifts them from the mundanity of their own experiences. Also I think media creates a sense of envy and low self worth, because “if they have that why can’t I” and “I’m not good enough”.

According to Wikipedia, the horn symbolism of cuckoldry comes from the mating habits of stags. During the mating season, the bucks fight each other with their horns, with the loser relinquishing rutting rights to the winner.

There’s also the obscure term ‘cuckquean’, referring to a woman whose husband is unfaithful. For some reason*, not considered as big a deal.

*Yeah, we all know what reason.

Theatre is just so much weirder when you know how they did (I suspect he made the brain cuz the last time he lent the mold to the troupe’s props guy it got lost for a year!)

Someone mentioned the Saudi vice police forced little girls back into a burning school to their deaths because they weren’t properly niqabed up/abayaed out.

I just found this on a blog exposing Christian Fundie leader Bill Gothard;

WendyA February 17, 2014 Reply

Elizabeth, I remember that rule about not leaving your room until completely dressed! I was shocked out of my mind by it!

I attended a conference at the ITC and the fire alarms went off in the middle of the night. The room leader actually blocked the doorway until we were all dressed in our navy and white. She and I had a heated altercation, though, because I pulled my skirt and blouse on over my nightwear and slipped on my shoes with no stockings. She didn’t think that was appropriate and wanted me to doff the nightwear and get properly dressed. I didn’t think burning to death on an upper floor of a hotel was appropriate and refused to change. I pushed past her and went down the hall to the stairwell and made my way to the lobby. I am pretty sure she reported me to leadership, but what were they gonna do, call my parents and explain to them that it was more important to be properly dressed than to be alive?

“I’m guessing after many men have pornhubed cucking, they’ll see it in a bitter, nasty, brutal their worst fear way rather than tragic or comic.”

That is so wacky! Because, like, porn isn’t reality! Can you imagine if porn was reality? Nothing would ever get done! You or I would go to the grocery story, fall face-first into an orgy, and then the person behind us trying to get some diapers for their kids would be held up for a whole hour or two.

It really says a lot about just how skewed the reality that these guys inhabit is, though. They saw some cuck porn on the internet and immediately assume that this is how Real Life works, in spite of all evidence suggesting otherwise?

I have a feeling that this is how a good deal of these people – like our pal Roosh – end up raping others, because, of course, in porn the lady says no until she says yes, and that’s exactly how real life should be, am I right?

No. No, that’s not how real life human beings work.

I am starting to think that the people who said that Internet Porn® would ruin young human beings have had a point. We have all these socially maladjusted young men who grew up on Internet Porn® thinking all kinds of wacky shit, like how they have to have sex every day (or they’re INCEL11!!), or their girlfriends have ten black dudes having sex with them as soon as their back is turned.

I’m a black male, and I mostly just spend my time wasting my life on the Internet, not, you know, ‘cucking’ people. I guess I’m a Betazed Incel or whatever the parlance among crazy people is these days.

On an unrelated note, let me revisit Wehraboos.

They’re really just Neonazis, but I digress. There’s a sudden explosion (it seems like it to me, anyway, perhaps they were just less visible, or maybe I notice them more now) of people who think Nazis were cool? Most of them seem to be these aforementioned maladjusted twenty and thirty-something white dudes.

And, it’s funny, because from what I gathered by reading people’s descriptions of Nazi Germany and its leaders, Hitler wouldn’t have thought much of these pasty Internet dudes who worship Nazis. Hell, he probably would have liquidated them as Untermenschen.

Ah, my bad, I’m sorry. I got so bent out of shape that these people think Pornhub is real life that I didn’t think my clever plan out too clearly.

I feel like there should be more shock about this, or, maybe I expected too much from people, but I still can’t believe that people actually think Pornhub is real life!

I mean, I suspected it, but I didn’t know I was right. I didn’t want to be right. I never asked for this.

I was warned of this situation, too, because I was old enough during the 1990’s to remember all the experts at the time who were bitterly decrying Internet Porn®. They said that certain susceptible individuals experience overlap between real life and Internet Porn®, to the point where some may not be able to distinguish Internet Porn® and real life.

And, well, it’s really looking like that now, 20 years later. Or maybe I’m just a crotchety old man who can’t deal with how kids like that derned sex so much, which doesn’t make sense because I’m not even 30 yet.

Frank Torpedo

I’m gonna be totally honest with you – I look at porn, but I also consume other forms of entertainment without assuming that they are a 1:1 representation of real life.

I mean, I played Mass Effect, but I’m pretty sure aliens aren’t attractive blue women with things on their head.

They might be, but I’m leaning towards the possibility that we probably may not be able to comprehend their true form. Like, their bodies may be totally…wait for it…alien to our limited human comprehension.

As I understand it, porn is an unrealistic form of entertainment meant to amuse and titillate. Which is why it irks me when I see people in the comment section of porn websites saying “THIS ISN’T REAL ENOUGH FOR ME!”

It’s not supposed to be real. Me, personally, the more unrealistic and silly it is, the better. I like being entertained. I feel like the people who insist on realism are missing the point.

I’ve heard that the porn industry prefers short people so that the penises look bigger, which is just one of the many techniques specific to creating their illusions. I’ve done enough research to conclude that porn is so far removed from reality that it is a fundamentally terrible idea to try to compare one’s real-world experiences to it.

@nequam: I know.
The thing is this, though: They alienate their considerable hardcore audience that would give them money for years to come and instead try to get a quick buck from people who won’t remember the show two weeks after watching it.
It’s just not smart business to slap your valuable brand on a bad show for some short term profits, ruining said brand in the process.
See: “Battlestar Galactica: Blood and chrome”.

Another problem is corporate ownership: The new show is put out by CBS, so it will probably be based in the “prime” universe, and not the rebooted “Movieverse”. (Because that one is owned by Paramount and not CBS)

Also, that bit in the announcement about “real world issues” seems to set up a bad BSG ripoff. Let’s be clear: Trek always was an allegorical show about real world issues.
The Klingons were the soviets, the Ferengi were a criticism of capitalism, etc.
This announcement seems to indicate that they are going down the Enterprise route of Al Qaida in space, rather than the TNG one of let’s explore the human condition in front of a backdrop of space.

Katz — would anyone not see a young Professer X kissing Harry Potter? (those two would make a good pair actually!) Oh great, I just rule 34’ed that into existing.

I mean, I’m totally down with that, I’d be so jealous of Daniel Radcliffe, but that’d be one of those random “oh hi, same sex affection!” But it’s PG-13, so that ain’t happening.

Frank Torpedo — I think with a lot of guys, or at least a sizable subset, it’s not that they think it’s realistic, but that it’s the only sex they’ve seen that isn’t censored for TV (I think only HBO will show a penis, in any form). So conscious or not it forms a brain background noise of how sex occurs. I doubt many people consciously think of porn as real, but it’s like, idk, our view on what the interior of houses should look like based on what we see on TV, or the idea that women should be Very Thin, stuff that when you think about it makes no sense, but is still what your brain defaults to cuz it’s what it’s been exposed to the most.

I saw a video two weeks ago that I thought some of the regulars here might find interesting. This has been making the rounds since then, so you probably have already seen this, in which case sorry for spamming.

Trigger warning: Not the cute kind of animal video. This needs a trigger warning, but I honestly don’t know how to articulate it. If you have recently lost a pet dog, been in a dog/wolf attack or are the kind of person who cannot watch old-fashioned horror movies, you may want to pass this. There’s no visible gore, though.

The video contains two wolves attacking a hunting dog (spoiler: the dog survives), the material is from a camera attached to the dog’s vest. Make sure you have the sound on.

(Hoping like hell this doesn’t embed and autoplay.)

I have mixed feelings about the video and don’t really have the words to say anything about it or even to describe it properly, and I’m interested in hearing other people’s opinions on it.

Quick update on the Trollhättan attack: The 15 year old boy who was severely injured in the attack has now recovered and been released from the hospital.

In other murderous right wing extremist news, I’ve just read that Anders Breivik apparently sent a letter from prison to Peter Mangs, who was arrested in 2010 and convicted in 2012 for a series of racially motivated shootings resulting in 2 murders and 4 attempted murders, in the city of Malmö where I lived at the time of some of the shootings.

Breivik considered Mangs one of the greatest “racial warriors” and wanted to show his support, but Mangs apparently didn’t accept the letter due to.. um, creative differences? While Breivik viewed himself as the more successful murderer and natural leader due to the high death toll from his attack, Mangs considered the Utøya attack a one time “hit-and-die operation” with no lasting effect, whereas his own strategy could have been more successful in the long run had he been a better marksman (and better at not getting caught).

Seems like the MRM isn’t the only right wing extremist group whose leaders simply can’t get along.

In the meanwhile, have the trailer itself, which is pretty awesome, coming from someone who’s never played a Mass Effect game:
