The Invasion of the Body Gropers

Properly Indignant Salute
(+1, -1)
  [vote for,

Remember the Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and that infamous pointed finger last executed by Donald Sutherland?

Well, with Charlie Rose gone and new (gasp, gasp) allegations against Bill Clinton, clearly our civilization has been taken over by toxically masculine men, and we need a properly indignant scared shitless pointing finger so we can properly react to them as they pass us on the street.

       You missed serial molester Donald Trump, and I don't think we're scared of them, we just don't want them in positions of authority, on account of them being untrustworthy jerks.   

       "Civilization" is, by definition, the march away from toxic masculinity, otherwise, we'd still be bonking one another over the head with clubs.   

       Taking that a step further, if it's toxic masculinity you want, we made a mistake coming down out of the trees, and before that, going up the trees. And before that, growing fur and frontal lobes. What we really want is primitive reptilian male-on-male fighting, ideally with tusks, claws and big pointy teeth, followed by a demonstration of victor-on-corpse fucking. Anything else is just another example of this academic notion of "pussification", naturally.   

       Unless you're a Creationist, in which case, Jesus was the original pussy, all that turn the other cheek stuff, I bet he used non-segregated toilets, probably didn't even carry a gun and, he didn't even touch-up any children, rape or murder anyone. Call that a man/son of a deity? My arse!

       prior to getting overly excited, read up on bonobos.   

       Trump is way past the silent scream, isn't he.
theircompetitor, Nov 21 2017

       Bonobos? Are you suggesting Jesus was a monkey? Still not as masculine than a flesh-ripping, gut-fucking alpha-male dinosaur.   

       Yes. Sarcasm. I just have zero respect for any of this lazy, sentimental alt-logic. It's demonstrably bollocks. (Yes, the alt-left has its moments sometimes, but pandering to the extremes only ever leads to harm and distress for everyone - best to stay normal and not engage in the bullshit parade)
zen_tom, Nov 21 2017

       Bonobos are mythologized as being loving apes, but if they became citizens they would all get locked up for kiddy fiddling, incest, and rampant groping. Perverts.

       sometimes I don't know what I'm talking about. But I'm definitely missing what you're talking about this time, [zen_tom] :)
theircompetitor, Nov 21 2017

       I don't want a Bonobo in charge either.   

       Isn't this a thinly veiled piece of anti-Democrat nonsense, written in response to some thinly veiled piece of anti- Republican nonsense, and so on infinitum, based (but not reliant upon) whatever latest news story can be most twisted into polarising rhetoric?   

       If I misread the post, then apologies, but there's so much weaponised opinion out there right now, someone's got to take a stand and say enough is enough.

       // not blowing limbs off adults. //   

       How many limbs, ± 1 ?   

       Is there an acceptable lower limit ? Is just one limb OK ?

       //For this generational round of take-downs, we should have limited ourselves to child molesters.//   

       In a few years, I expect there'll be a witch-hunt of women who thrust their naked breasts into the faces of very young children.
MaxwellBuchanan, Nov 22 2017

       Oh, THAT's already well under way ...

       ^That's so pervy   

       Where? Do you have the GPS coordinates? Just for research purposes of course...
not_morrison_rm, Nov 23 2017

       Women have an uneasy relationship with being molested because - it’s a bit like a peacock’s tail. In their genes they know it’s a predilection that could be good to pass on to the next generation. If their sons are gropers, they’ll probably get lucky in the end. Ok it’s hit and miss, and the chance of a miss are getting worse by the day. But the genes aren’t really au fait with the latest social trends.. anyway, better a groper ( their genes say. Better that kind of self belief, than the alternative)

       You have Doris Lessing on your side, [DDRD], but I'm not sure that's much of a recommendation.
pertinax, Nov 23 2017

       // genes aren’t really au fait with the latest social trends //   

       Therein lies the core of the problem; the blurry continuum of behaviour ranging from groping, molestation and abuse through to semi-consensual physical contact leading to intimacy and reproduction.   

       Unless there is social acceptance of some form of non-verbal interpersonal communication that takes into account the high probability that mistakes will be made and misunderstandings will occur, without inflicting disproportionate consequences on the initiator, then there may be a significant risk that fewer successful relationships will be formed, because possible participants become increasingly risk-averse.   

       Since many of your so-called "advanced" societies already have birth rates below replacement levels - Japan is a notable example - adding a further social pressure which might aggravate this trend might be seen as unwise.
