For all of you still intent on complaining about Miley Cyrus, just remember: It was her choice (not that of those 70-year-old Jewish men who she claims run her industry) to brand herself as a naked, tongue-wagging sex kitten.

Earlier this month, Acculturated ran two stories back to back on the same day. In one, a Christian photographer debated the use of the female form as art. The other article examined the lack of mainstream media outrage when Republican women are sexually smeared (think Miley as Michele on SNL). Pondering why some of the greatest European and African nations have powerful females in government, the author of said article concluded: “Maybe the reason America doesn’t have more women in public life is because here we are all sluts….” Whether we’re objets d’art or whores, women have lost their cultural standing as human beings in America.

And considering there’s way more of us than men in America, I’m tending to think a good chunk of our bad rap is our fault.

We’re the demographic who turned a porno fanfiction into a record-breaking blockbuster hit overnight. Yep, you can’t blame those fantasy weirdos anymore for skewing reading stats: Fifty Shades of Grey has outdone the Harry Potter series in sales thanks to female readers.

50 SOG has become such a media phenom that I’ve even seen women—and it’s  always women—unabashedly reading it in paperback in Starbucks, showing off its distinctive black and white  cover. It’s the fact that it’s a media phenom that makes this OK, of course. …Still, you won’t see people, or men, cracking open “The Story of O” or “Penthouse Forum” in public anytime soon. With 50SOG, you can still claim you’re reading it for ironic hipster reasons.

Postmodernity has allowed us to pseudo-intellectualize anything in pop culture. Of all the things today’s ladies could’ve gone for, they decided submissive S&M was hip. And if you think women are keeping their porn classy by sticking to softcover fiction, thanks to E.L. James’s Twilight ripoff:

Radical feminists', as well as not-so-radical feminists', fixation on sexuality is just another aspect of the wave of narcissism that swept into the culture during the sexual revolution of the '60s. From the Beatles "doing it in the road" to Dr. Ruth - remember her? the sweet grandmotherly lady who used to counsel on TV about achieving the perfect orgasm? - unbridled sexuality was sold as a revolutionary act, one that was by implication virtuous. This leftwing hogwash was just another way to destroy religion and the family as society's bedrock. A country full of people so narcissistic they can't see beyond their own bodies are easy to manipulate and control.

>nudity (and, therefore, sexuality) is associated with original sin

Can't dispute that formulation, but where is the positive thought? The point of modesty is to get people to grow BEYOND that Miley Cyrus phase, into mature, productive, joyous adulthood.
The idea that faith is about 'taking away' is true only in the sense that pruning a rosebush for fuller blooming is also taking away.

My ex-GF totally dug porn. She used to send me links to things she thought were hot. I don't think all women like it, but I suspect many do.

While I agree with what you are saying, I have a slight correction.

The eating of the fruit (it doesn't say "apple") has to do with the internalization of the evil inclination, so that people no longer thought of themselves as souls with bodies and so needed separation and modesty. This is quite likely.

But it is unrelated to the sexual act, per se. According to tradition, Adam and Eve had Cain and Abel (and their three sisters) in the usual manner (but without a gestation period or childhood) before the sin.

To be clear, I am referring to Jewish tradition. I'm aware Christians have a different view.

Women are sex objects, but this is not a bad thing. How else do you ladies expect us men to stand being around you? : ) Seriously though, much of humanity's greatest artwork presents the naked young woman as the absolute height of beauty. This has been repeated across cultures and across time; it seems like there must be something to it!!!

Humans must have sex for the race to survive. Unless people haven't noticed, the birth rate is declining precipitously. Doesn't it seem like the obvious solution is for hot chicks to get married young and then have lots and lots of sex? I've noticed the conservatives aren't pushing that as part of their social platform.

I don't know about where you come from, but having lots of children (with one's husband) is a pretty common goal in my circles.

PS - Non-hot chicks are also capable of bearing children, especially if their husbands consider them hot; it helps not to be too shallow.

Well, I mean in a general sense. The birth rate won't improve unless people like you and your friends become the norm rather than the exception.

Non-hot chicks are definitely capable of having kids, but they have a better chance of doing it if they start younger. An average-looking 21yo is generally better looking than an attractive 31yo. Men go for looks; this is not shallow, its nature. It has always been this way and it always will. If the gods didn't want men to be attracted to hot young chicks, then why didn't they make it that way?

I doubt many women would prefer to marry a short bald man with a mediocre job.

SLMG, I like your style! Something is wack with women these days. My wife and I both notice how young women often speak with a rising pitch at the end of their sentences, like they're asking a question rather than making a statement. Sounds enfeebled. They also speak with a constricted, nasal voice which sounds very child-like. So much for womens' lib!

I have not nor will I ever read Shades of Grey, nor do I view porn.
The reason for the popularity of SoG is because women who have never been raped still think of it in terms of 'she's so beautiful that the man simply could not resist her' instead of the abusive, sometimes fatal, violent act it really is. I've found similar, although less graphic, depictions in romance novels since I began to read them. Georgette Hyer became so popular specifically because of her ability to remain in the soft rape porn genre instead of 'going all the way'.
IMO a relationship is an equal partnership so I, nor my husband, has any need for the other to submit. The submission is mutual.
As for your reference to the Garden of Eden, your assumption seems to be that Adam and Eve hadn't had sex with each other until eating from the Tree of Good and Evil, which cannot be true. God created them to both multiply and only know goodness. He also created them nude with the clear intent of them *and the entire population of the earth* remaining nude into perpetuity. The introduction of the knowledge of evil made clothing a necessity.

"The introduction of the knowledge of evil made clothing a necessity."

I'm going to Toronto in another week and I'm bringing a winter coat regardless of how evil it is...just saying.

The problem with modern ideas about living life is that they lack discipline. The ability to overcome ones urges is a valuable character trait that is lost on many people these days. Sex cannot be used as leverage against a disciplined mind. Sex only has power when weak minded fools make sex more important than anything else. There are a lot of weak minded fools out there and they deserve whatever misery comes their way when they think with their genitals.

Is hotness now become the new Jedi mind-trick? Glad I'm not a weak-minded fool. Attractive is nice, but personality is a must in a mate.

Actually, sex IS more important than anything else. The human race wouldn't exist if we weren't compelled by nature to have as much sex as possible.

Where the living hell were these girls when I was growing up? You couldn't have FOUND a more clean-living bunch, with less interest in any of the subjects above. It sounds as if young men are slightly less miserable growing up than they used to be, so good for all concerned.

It sounds as if in many places, the misery of one sex is no longer the other's gain, or vice versa--but the author considers that a bad development. Wish I understood why.

I seem to remember a news report some time ago saying that the majority of behind the camera power positions (Director/Producer etc) in the porn industry, were manned by WOMEN.

If I were considering Miss Miley for a project, one of the negatives that I'd have to consider is how she craps on previous work and disrespects former work partners. Considering the long tail value of residuals, I'd have to think strongly on the fact that she'd decide to dump on the project, once finished, as an attention-seeking stunt, and cause a drop off in revenue.

Like most liberals, Ms Cyrus has little understanding of business, and less respect for it.

This is the dynamic: Subs experience all of the sensations, Doms do all the work and planning, and take all of the responsibility. The power is actually inverted, but she still gets to claim the 'helpless victim' role.
