On Triggering and the Triggered, Part 3 | Alastair's Adversaria [WARNING: This post contains language and discussion that rape or sexual abuse survivors may find upsetting.] Within this post I will continue my analysis of the debate surrounding the words of Pastor Douglas Wilson’s that Jared Wilson posted over a week ago.

Camille Paglia's "Sexual Personae": Book Review Her first chapter dazzles. 39 pages astonished me with her passion. I wondered if she'd sustain this intensity.

Sexual Personae Whenever Camille Paglia's turns out another study of the Western Culture, she succeeds in aggravating a wide spectrum of intellectuals. Paglia's discovery that women’s reproductive powers naturally bind them to men upsets feminist intellectuals. She says that Ayn Rand-like capitalism has freed women from bondage to men, and she makes Leftists boil with indignation.

For most modern critics, the term "Decadence" -- when used to describe certain Victorian works--does not carry negative connotations. Decadence
Blogs Are Godless Communist Bullshit This might be for newbies. It's about how to avoid getting tricked. If you've been in the business a few years, you already know there are corporate shenanigans out there. However, you could be in the business for a while before you run into the worst of it.
