(Mein lieber Mann, tät’ Greenfield Gretchen statt Lazarus im Vornamen heißen, hätt’ er nicht klein beigegeben! – Weiterer Kommentar auf englisch.)
Last week, New York state characterized freeze tag, Wiffle Ball, kickball and dodgeball as potentially hazardous, thereby subjecting camp providers overseeing those games to state regulation.
Out West, the NCAA is at odds with the University of North Dakota over the continued use of the nickname “the Fighting Sioux” and its accompanying logo.
But neither was the PC story of the week. That distinction belongs to a controversy surrounding a world-renowned surgeon who resigned a leadership position in the face of criticism over a one liner he delivered concerning semen.
Dr. Greenfield noted the therapeutic effects of semen, citing research from the Archives of Sexual Behavior which found that female college students practicing unprotected sex were less likely to suffer from depression than those whose partners used condoms (as well as those who remained abstinent).
Presumably it was the closing line that caused the controversy: “So there’s a deeper bond between men and women than St. Valentine would have suspected, and now we know there’s a better gift for that day than chocolates.”
Professor Lazar Greenfield’s good advice for Valentine’s Day was published to meet with a hysterical outrage appropriate for a victorian girls school staff, among his colleagues of the blushing sex. These seasoned hardcore surgeons and researchers managed to take offense in having to learn of the truly scandalous research results that the class enemy’s semen seems to serve as a natural antidepressant for their kindred and – what a satanic twist of black humour added – hence might be considered a sweeter oblation to present to one’s object of adoration than chocolate. Alas, the honorable and righteous gentlemen of the board did not hesitate to assure the such slandered of their deepest regrets and made atonement by retracting the whole edition of the journal which had become the vessel of the unspeakable shame. The culprit was tared and feathered, his apologies notwithstanding, and stepped back from his board positions.
The lesson to be learnt – it did not matter that he is not only a highly respected scientist and teacher but especially known for supporting the advancement of women in the field of surgery – keep your dirty jokes for yourself, in the company of the pure sex, or else you will certainly bemoan your audacity when it is too late, you scoundrel. Semen is good for women! – Gosh, you could as well proclaim that fathers are good for children!
Women control the reproduction of science. Women control the reproduction of humor. Or, so it seems.
Spoiled brats in women’s shells, that is, control pussywhipped motherfuckers (in the Freudian false sense), PASsed good boys ducking at any eyerolling bitch, it seems. But all of that just seems so.
Because the brats taking offense in reality and truth were irrelevant, would not the whole elite of men in power be traitors to the manly honor of acting according to one’s best science and conscience, no matter how offended or offending any breach of the public or the private reacted.
It is the lack of moral ethos among the men who crave success, wealth and power, that enables the pattern of effective moral blackmail women always and anytime try to apply when it serves their egos.
The default amoralistic egocentrism of the female mentality is either controlled by men, and the ethical codes they set up for society, or it is allowed to go unreigned, as far as being taken for justified, legitimate and, at last, even as normative.
These days, we are being taught, lecture by lecture, what a shameless, totalitarian, gynocratic terror results all over the spectrum of cultural and political life, and how it condensates in the area of lawmaking and jurisdiction as the consequence of men listening to the voices of women.
