The US Army Needs Better Uniform Designers

And its soldiers need to look less Uhmerican. The rest of the anglosphere benefits from having uniforms being derived from British ones.

Feminist But Willing to Share a Presumably Alpha Male



The movie description:
The unconventional life of Dr. William Marston, the Harvard psychologist and inventor who helped invent the modern lie detector test and created Wonder Woman in 1941. Marston was in a polyamorous relationship with his wife Elizabeth, a psychologist and inventor in her own right, and Olive Byrne, a former student who became an academic. This relationship was key to the creation of Wonder Woman, as Elizabeth and Olive's feminist ideals were ingrained in the character from her creation. Marston died of skin cancer in 1947, but Elizabeth and Olive remained a couple and raised their and Marston's children together. The film is said to focus on how Marston dealt with the controversy surrounding Wonder Woman's creation.

EW

At least Julian Fellowes kept up with history in Downton Abbey. This looks rather unoriginal; they should have just done a remake.

The Latest Thing to Be Marketed

This boot camp for men claims it’ll revive your ‘primal nature’ by Dana Schuster

How's this different from Robert Bly's Iron John: A Book about Men and the gatherings that grew out of that?

A Recent Advertising Outrage

Tiger mom and tiger cub... while the uselessness of college-aged students may be true of certain demographics, why give this image of young men? Because to do a commercial like this featuring daughters who might need roadside assistance (and doesn't that happen a lot?) would be offensive?

There's a Term Used by Gurney Halleck in David Lynch's Dune

"Bed play"? Some such euphemism.

Regarding the post on the [sexual] ascesis, I would be surprised if much was written on "love play" before the age of the manuals (and casuistry). What would be the justification for love play be? That all pleasure relating to touch/sensation between a husband and a wife is permissible in so far as it is ordered to the conjugal act/coitus? Otherwise it is "venial sin" or possibly "mortal sin." There are probably still some who have the view that this is too permissive.

What are the limits? TOB can be intrepreted in two different ways, with a permissive attitude towards everything in so far as "it is finishes in the conjugal act" and yet it may frown upon certain forms of "dominant" behavior as not being "gentlemanlike" or what have you.

I would maintain that some sorts of dominant behavior may be permissible (taking the initiative is the most bassic) while others are not because they are intrinsically disordered.

Curious if there is an academic or theological discussion of fantasy role-playing anywhere.

When St. Paul was talking about the necessity for husbands of pleasing their wives, was he also alluding to the bed?

Star Trek Discovery

Ascesis vs. the Red Pill

Would telling a husband that he needs to be more "dominant" in the bedroom be completely at odds with traditional Christian ascesis? It seems to be counter to Theology of the Body. Would a man be scandalized to hear a priest give him this advice? Even if it were a married priest, it may still be troubling to hear this from him. Would this ingrained reaction be justified? Or would it be better regardless for a man to hear this from a married layperson?
