Why Have I Discussed Race?

December 15, 2010


A READER writes:

Your recent post, “Rape and Race,” has produced quite a few negative reactions from people who have been offended at what they feel was implied racism on your part. Their reaction, as far as I can tell, may not have been your intent. However, I feel that they are somewhat justified in their response due to the ambiguous nature of the post. Read More »


Rape and Race, cont.

December 15, 2010


THE DISCUSSION on the post “Rape and Race” continues here.

Elizabeth Wright, a black blogger at Issues and Views, writes:

Leave it to blacks and whites, both male and female, to jump to the defense of black men and to rationalize rape. Of course, I wouldn’t expect whites to have listened in on candid conversations that I, as a  black, have had over the years. And, at this point in this country’s multicultural history, I wouldn’t expect anyone to be honest, even about statistics.

“Alte,” who is black, is full of every cliché that has become popular in attempts to enhance the reputation of black men.  According to current drivel, miscegenation was not at its greatest when white  masters had total control over their female property, but only later when they had to coax and buy the favors of freed black women. This supposedly makes the interracial sexual arrangement occurring during Reconstruction and the Jim Crow period even more odious than the previous slavery arrangement, although no one can show any evidence for such a fabricated claim.

In the Ruins of Pop Adolescence

December 15, 2010



Regarding male (or “male”) model, Andrej Pejic – the photograph of him that you reproduced today is creepy and disturbing. I reacted to it with visceral loathing. My guess is that, whatever sexual neurosis Pejic is acting out, he is also aiming precisely at the effect of being creepy and disturbing. If such a person had manifested himself in a public place in 1950, he probably would have been arrested and, if not charged with indecency, then placed under psychiatric detention pending a cure. Nowadays he enjoys a “career” and is a “celebrity.” Our afflicted society produces these grotesques one after another and in droves, a sign of how profound the cultural malaise is.  Read More »


The Man-Hater and the Frigid White Housewife

December 15, 2010


HERE are some strong objections at other sites to what I and others have written here in the last few days. They concern the recent posts on men’s rights, which you can find here and here, and on black rape statistics.

At the Spearhead and In Male Fide, I am accused of a lack of understanding of what men face today. I have not read these posts in their entirety. In fact, I have not read references to me at either of these sites since they stooped to calling me names.

Two female bloggers take strong exception to my post on black rape. In a long entry about false rape accusations against black men during the Jim Crow era, accusations which she says were a result of white female hysteria over sexual relations between their husbands and black women, Alte at Traditional Catholicism says, “Hundreds of black men died that way, and many still do, to promote the cause of White Womanhood.” Read More »


Sexual Fluidity, cont.

December 15, 2010



Andrej Pejic

THE 19-YEAR-OLD Australian model Andrej Pejic, who is a boy, is an extreme example of what is everywhere in the modern world: the role-playing of one sex as the other. Judging from this brief description of his life, Pejic did not grow up with his father. Fatherlessness, which is becoming more common by the day, is fertile ground for sexual confusion.


Dalrymple on the Pope

December 15, 2010


THEODORE DALRYMPLE has an excellent piece on Pope Benedict XVI at The Salisbury Review. Addressing calls within Britain’s intelligentsia for the arrest of the Pope because of his alleged role in sex abuse crimes, Dalrymple notes that child abuse is most prevalent in homes where biological fathers are absent and step-fathers are present. He writes:  

It follows from this that, if the Pope should be arrested for crimes against humanity, so should the following categories:

Divorcees with children


Single mothers

Feminists and all other proponents of lax marriage and easy divorce, including journalists Read More »
