Comments16/11/2017 #18 Renée 🐝 Cormier#5 @Charlene Norman, I really don't think the girls who can't say no are sex crazed nymphomaniacs. Women need to stop judging each other and quit denying that they are sexual beings. People who don't exercise good sexual judgement are either predators or temporary fools. On all other points, I agree with you, sister.16/11/2017 #17 Renée 🐝 Cormier#4 Phil, predators exist because as a society we have allowed them to, and God knows, maybe they exist because they represent the contrast of behaviour that guides the rest of the world. You can't know what you don't want if you never experience it, right? Times are a changin' and I suspect that transition period will cause the pendulum to swing a little too far in the other direction. Humans are driven by sex. It is a natural impulse for both men and women. I'd like to see people distinguish between inappropriate behaviour and predatory behaviour before they slash someone's reputation and destroy a career, however lucrative.16/11/2017 #15 Renée 🐝 Cormier#10 I had been rolling it around in my mind for a while, because I know the problem is a real one, but it is not as one sided as one may think and I didn't want to diminish the importance of the issue. I also didn't want people to think that all sexual behaviour needs to be admonished. The non-predators need to know their audience and the hard core predators need to be dealt with. In both cases, valuing human dignity and treating others with respect, regardless of how irresistible or vulnerable they appear to be, is critical.16/11/2017 #14 Renée 🐝 Cormier#13 Yes, I agree completely that there is a massive difference between predatory behaviour and being a little free with the hands. I'm not convinced those in Hollywood have fully figured that out, but what a powerful feeling it must be to be able to squash someone's career and reputation just by hurling an accusation in an environment that has now perhaps become overly sensitive.
On another note, most women make me laugh. They spend a lot of energy denying their sexual nature and pretending to be prim and proper, but give them a couple of glasses of wine in a non-judgmental environment and the sex kittens come out to play every time! Thank God you've got some meat on you, @Robert Cormack16/11/2017 #13 Robert CormackYes, @Renée 🐝 Cormier, we're probably all guilty of "bottom patting." I helped a friend with some serving at a "Bitch Party," and those girls would have "picked us clean as a chicken bone" if we hadn't been fast with the food trays. Perhaps we need to distinguish between rare impropriates of the celebratory kind and endemic predatory behaviour. This idea of casting a wide net and "taking down" everyone you can demonstrates a hatred that isn't man-based. From I can gather (from the comments made on my post "Eating From The Dog's Mouth), it appears to be self hatred.16/11/2017 #12 Brian McKenzieRemember, Women need Men Like a Fish needs a Bicycle. You should never give them time, attention, consideration, resources nor funding. Do not marry, breed, date, entertain or converse with them. You do so at your own risk and peril. You never know what will be misconstrued, alleged, accused or fabricated - and certainly never when. Welcome to #MGTOW Stage 1 - We will leave the light on for ya.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/relationships/11904203/Well-done-feminism.-Now-man-are-afraid-to-help-women-at-work.html16/11/2017 #11 Nicole ChardenetI think we may well find that men are often targets of male abuse more and more. Kevin Spacey may just be the tip of the iceberg. James Van Der Beek, he of Dawson's Creek fame, talked of getting hit up and felt up by Hollywood big cheeses at parties. It's quite possible that male victims of male violence are where women were for so many years, unwilling to speak up for fear of not being believed, or ridiculed, or shot down.
Let's remember that sexual violence is just as wrong when perpetrated *on* men as well as by them...or by women, which has been known to happen too.
I'm waiting to see if it somehow unleashes news about the alleged 'pedophile ring' in Hollywood that former child actor Corey Feldman has been going on about for years. Lately he's begun to sound less credible than he has in years past. I don't doubt he and his friend Corey Haim were sexually abused by some males, but his claim to name names including one internationally-known superstar or mogul is beginning to wear a little thin, especially since he said he named names to the Santa Barbara police in the early '90s, and the S.B.P.D. says he didn't...name names, anyway, although they agree he came in to see them about the abuse.
The plot gets thickerer.16/11/2017 #10 Paul Walters@Renée 🐝 Cormier . "ladies, if you live in a glasshouse, you should probably invest in nerf balls." That was one of the standout sentences in this well thought out piece! The topic is right now a 'stand out topic" and we are seeing the demise of great actors, a la Kevin Spacey to name just one. Yup, many men are predators and use positions of influence or power to intimidate their 'prey' and its time for it to stop, however perhaps that's wishful thinking. Thank you for a thought-provoking and honest piece. Bravo!!16/11/2017 #9 Renée 🐝 Cormier#5 Yes, we women get accused of flirting and somehow "asking for it". That is very unfair. There is no justification for being a pig. I guess the point of my blog is to tell men to acknowledge what they do and to tell those women who are no better to do the same because when it comes to sexual misconduct/ abuse, there is no room for double standards.16/11/2017 #8 Renée 🐝 Cormier#7 My past doesn't haunt me anymore. I'll admit that it did for a long time. I chose not to act like a victim, even if I was one. Abuse is always about power. You don't have to give your own power to anyone but yourself. No one can define me but me, and no one's actions against me will define me. I am the only person who is going to define who I am, what my values are and how I decide to live my life.15/11/2017 #5 Charlene NormanPhew … you are covering a lot of ground in one post. So here goes.
“what about the girls who can’t say no?” I think they are called sex-crazed or nymphomaniacs. We should leave them alone. They will figure things out eventually.
I have been fortunate to meet, date and work with many men who are not ruled by their little head. They have my utmost respect and devotion. I have never been raped but have been fondled, groped, and flashed at work. I have a few girlfriends who have been raped and or beaten. Many men both socially and workwise have tried to put me down but alas all eventually gave up in futility.
I agree that when women disrespect men along the ways you highlight, the phrase, what is good for the goose is good for the gander should ring true. (And I have been to court a few times with nuisance suits arguing such things.)
I am more annoyed at the women who today judge the women making claims as somehow wrong. All us women learn very early on in our lives about these damn aha moments playing in the current press. I see the whole disclosure thing as nothing more than a good cleansing. I can’t tell and don’t want to tell who is lying and who is telling the truth. I just know that with the ‘stuff’ that has spewed forward over the last couple years in both Canada and the US, much of what the women are saying IS true.
And after this colossal cleanse is finally finished, I hope we can all reclaim our humanity and decency.
And this topic is a hotbed discussion right now. Which is probably a good thing. Part of that cleansing routine. LOL15/11/2017 #4 Phil FriedmanRenee, here's how I draw the line. Physical coercion obviously wrong, both morally and legally. Hitting on someone over whom you even implicitly exert authority by dint of your relative positions at work or school or other organization is also way over the line of acceptability. Even simply accepting the advances of someone in an "inferior" position is highly questionable from an ethical standpoint. Consensual relations can only be so if mutually desired and between "equals". All else is, to my mind, suspect.
That said, I am moved to reiterate my rejection as real of certain forms purported coercion. For example, the threat from a predator that he or she will do harm to your career when that career involves solely the pursuit of fame and wealth. Because in the absence of physical coercion, the threat of being denied that $10 million dollar contract seems to me not ever to be a legitimate instance of being forced. "Oh, I had to say yes, or face losing out on a multi-million dollar gig." If what's at stake is being able to support one's family or not, that is coercion. But if it's the difference between having an "ordinary" job making a hundred grand or so a year and being made a star earning tens of millions per year, well, that becomes a choice -- call it the Hollywood Cesspool Choice.
Young women (of whom I am the father of two) are constantly assaulted by social threats (give out, or be known as an ice queen), but the fact is that we are all assaulted by society at that level over all manner of issues And we all need to learn to stand our ground and say "hell no." Then as necessary, accept the consequences. For just about everything in life has consequences, most of which are not life-threatening.
Of course, if you're really just a "girl" who can't say no, that's your business and the rest of us should butt out. Cheers!15/11/2017 #3 Irene 🐝 Rodriguez Escolarthe word violence implies many situations, it is also violence to force a woman, in a subtle way, when she has already said no. It is not no, asleep, drunk, drugged or even with the panties down. I'm very sorry for your violation. We have suffered violence of gender since we are girls, I also know what it is to be brushed obscenely when I was on the subway. Also beaten, and forced, though not violently, but psychologically by the father of my children. Thanks for the song and for your story. You are right, if we consider wrong treatment to women, women should not treat men in the wrong way. (I hope the translator behaves well)

PS If Michael Moore's people don't call you about the road doccie call them 😃!25/06/2017 #19 Deb 🐝 HelfrichI love the contrast you built up, @Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA between a life of comforting tradition and that one phone call that sent you and your family into an entirely different future.
I feel like we become more of who we are meant to be, when we step outside the well-trodden paths. Once we are habituated to a place, life tends to function on auto-pilot, especially when we are immersed in an entire community. That we are known so well is certainly a blessing, but can also be a bind from emerging into all that we are capable of.
I am actively courting that revolutionary phone call right now. But for a contrary reason. I am feeling drawn to travel - the call of the road, as you know, in order to find that place that feels like the home I want to cultivate for the rest of my life. I am ready to negotiate the staying-put part of life. But the place were I can do my best work, contribute the most value is still a mystery to me.
So a drive-about seems prudent.
Excited to see what happens in your tale next!25/06/2017 #17 Gert Scholtz@Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA Now that does sound like a big change: East London to Abu Dhabi. I am sure, although at times you miss the shores of the Eastern Cape, Abu Dhabi offers a rich tapestry of experience and opportunity for you and your family.

Fleetwood Mac is appropriate because their music was co-opted by Bill Clinton as the chief theme of his first Presidential victory. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3JA1nWPFqM So if Fleetwood Mac could contribute on song for the Clinton Presidency they should release a parody single right now "We've Stopped Thinking about Tomorrow".
Yet this dream was not just about politics and the actual nightmare that is unfolding in America right now, it was also touched the realm of Guy Debord because McGregor vs. Mayweather is definitely another piece of the Spectacle. If Hunter Thompson lived in this time he would have shot himself much earlier, not even Thompson would be impressed with a Gonzo President.
Stevie Nicks would have been back for an encore had Hilary Clinton won especially since she did get off the fence and predicted in September 2016 that Hilary would win by a landslide http://www.cnn.com/2016/09/07/politics/stevie-nicks-hillary-clinton-landslide/index.html - which only goes to show that even Fleetwood Mac participated once in a political dream.
It was never the case that Hilary would ever run naked on the White House Lawn, for she got a much worse nightmare come true than that, she had her political soul ripped out of on that election night - the dream was so real she built a monument to celebrate in and on that night, all the dreamers in that DNC monument awoke with real tears rolling down their face http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/backstage-at-hillary-clintons-election-night-party-ive-never-seen-a-more-defeated-group-people- Close

Now I celebrate J.D. Salinger for a totally different reason, that he managed to hold on to his privacy and did not caught up in the bubble of the fame that came his way.
At 16 the mask may be more than just anxious, but an act also, at 56 the mask begins to drip off revealing the face of life with an age. That is exactly why I don't like personal branding, for this is a way of making the mask the socially acceptable persona - so I prefer the reality of skin, when we know we have been skin deep and our brand is body armor against a society still driven by economic anxieties. Want to see how skin deep - criticize a persons personal brand and watch the mask begin to bleed.

It's not end but may be start to understand the real vastness of our universe which is just a hypothesis now.
I would say hungriness to knowledge to know more will continue...
But sometimes just not to circle in the same loop, sometimes know nothing and try to see from different angle to get out if the box ideas may arise .08/05/2017 #31 Yogesh Sukal@Susan 🐝 Botello @Louise Smith
As science originated, when we know nothing and just philosophical thoughts and ideas.
In discussion with @Sara Jacobovici
On her content.
Agreeing on the fact that you can take science out of philosophy but not philosophy out of science, in fact before science there was only philosophy which then converted into science with the principles inspired out of the philosophy.
As PhD now days is more considered as science expertism in particular scientific domain, but it still stands for "doctor of philosophy".
Its that attitude of knowing nothing emerged, inventive ideas and our current theories , if Einstein continued the Newton's gravity which was not satisfy on broader level but the trajectory of baseball, but it's new concept Einstein brought with gravity of space-time fabric reality according to his general relativity.
It's just an attitude, to fetch new and more.

You need Clarity to know the difference of the Breadth and Depth between Everything and Nothing.
If there is no Relevance it is Nothing.
You need Precision and Logic to know the Significance of the choice between Everything and Nothing.
If there is Accuracy it is Everything.
You need Fairness to know when to use Everything and Nothing. Close27/04/2017 #20 Yogesh Sukal#16 Indeed , @Pascal Derrien I captured it as one of my quoteful shots.

Comments28/04/2017 #7 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#6 This is what I like about David Gray's songwriting, his lyrics invite us to our own experiences and this is not about interpreting his music for others but internalizing it through our unique experiences and sense-making. That also shows me why we have an affinity, which is also what shows up in your bee appreciation poems - the affinities are that much more personal. and that soak the human condition.28/04/2017 #5 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWhile Babylon was his greatest hit, I dig "Sail Away" the most https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMF7Uq-mHZA 2nd Favourite track is Transformation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8XP9b-O_0U and then it is Babylon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zI_SBAkdKzc
He has a distinct Brit voice where you can hear his Northern English voice. and that combines to create his own style. Ed Sheeran gave him due credit by covering This Year's Love https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06fvCuR-uWY and that is the difference,
Sheeran has a greater footprint and yet when you hear his cover, he pays homage to Gray's singing style and not just doing a cover in a different way. The song should not be better because Sheeran sings it, it should be better because David Gray is a great singer/songwriter.
