  6. Anonymous said: Shame how a sissy hausfrau looks more like a woman than you ever could. You want to make sexist, pervert, misogynistic vid clips? Then do so without the leftie comments. And if you are that much of a whingeing, malnourished, asswiping, shitsniffer that's always preaching equality, try practicing it with more than a few female (real ones, not your sort) on the receiving end.

    hmm, me thinks this woman hater was probably fapping with one hand and tapping the keyboard with the knuckles with the other. anonymous clearly gets off on being nasty with someone from the shadows like a real coward. notice how anon must denigrate me while while suggesting i play with “real” women. I wonder if sissies bother this anonymous at his/her core.i wonder if anonymous could comprehend that the sissy in the video was not just a good friend of mine and begged me to be part of this vid but also added her ideas too.maybe anonymous is unfamiliar with the collaborative pervy work i do with cis women.perhaps anon reeaalllly loathes lefty ideas and is also unfamiliar with satire and off colour humour. maybe, his/her secret desires are ignited by my creative endevours  and that is upsetting to his/her core.

    but i do give this coward some credit for using a thesaurus and finding the word whingeing (complaining). now let’s hope for the sake of humanity that this anonymous oozes back under the rock it came from.

    now i will get back to editing my lefty perv porn where my friends and i (of different genders & identity) explore egalitarian, vegetarian, sexual identity, healthy planet, anti misogynist, anti establishment, anti violence concepts while having an awesome kinktastic time.

    ps,

    this jackwad and others like shim is the reason i have the views i do. anonymous’ mom should have swallowed. the world would be a nicer place.

A long childhood feeds the hungry human brain
A five-year old’s brain is an energy monster. It uses twice as much glucose (the energy that fuels the brain) as that of a full-grown adult, a new study led by Northwestern University anthropologists has found.
The study helps to solve the long-standing mystery of why human children grow so slowly compared with our closest animal relatives.
It shows that energy funneled to the brain dominates the human body’s metabolism early in life and is likely the reason why humans grow at a pace more typical of a reptile than a mammal during childhood.
Results of the study will be published the week of Aug. 25 in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
"Our findings suggest that our bodies can’t afford to grow faster during the toddler and childhood years because a huge quantity of resources is required to fuel the developing human brain," said Christopher Kuzawa, first author of the study and a professor of anthropology at Northwestern’s Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences. "As humans we have so much to learn, and that learning requires a complex and energy-hungry brain."
Kuzawa also is a faculty fellow at the Institute for Policy Research at Northwestern.
The study is the first to pool existing PET and MRI brain scan data — which measure glucose uptake and brain volume, respectively — to show that the ages when the brain gobbles the most resources are also the ages when body growth is slowest. At 4 years of age, when this “brain drain” is at its peak and body growth slows to its minimum, the brain burns through resources at a rate equivalent to 66 percent of what the entire body uses at rest.
The findings support a long-standing hypothesis in anthropology that children grow so slowly, and are dependent for so long, because the human body needs to shunt a huge fraction of its resources to the brain during childhood, leaving little to be devoted to body growth. It also helps explain some common observations that many parents may have.
"After a certain age it becomes difficult to guess a toddler or young child’s age by their size," Kuzawa said. "Instead you have to listen to their speech and watch their behavior. Our study suggests that this is no accident. Body growth grinds nearly to a halt at the ages when brain development is happening at a lightning pace, because the brain is sapping up the available resources."
It was previously believed that the brain’s resource burden on the body was largest at birth, when the size of the brain relative to the body is greatest. The researchers found instead that the brain maxes out its glucose use at age 5. At age 4 the brain consumes glucose at a rate comparable to 66 percent of the body’s resting metabolic rate (or more than 40 percent of the body’s total energy expenditure).
"The mid-childhood peak in brain costs has to do with the fact that synapses, connections in the brain, max out at this age, when we learn so many of the things we need to know to be successful humans," Kuzawa said.
"At its peak in childhood, the brain burns through two-thirds of the calories the entire body uses at rest, much more than other primate species," said William Leonard, co-author of the study. "To compensate for these heavy energy demands of our big brains, children grow more slowly and are less physically active during this age range. Our findings strongly suggest that humans evolved to grow slowly during this time in order to free up fuel for our expensive, busy childhood brains."

    when people act like hitting/choking women during sex isn’t an indicator of misogyny

    • stop
    • it is
    • you need to rethink why violence against women gets you hard

    not if she literally asks for it & you have a safe word. btw, study has shown those who indulge in bdsm are actually healthier and happier than their vanilla peers. i also speak from 20yrs experience with a personal stable relationship with my companion for 15+ yrs. can you say the same little miss judgy judge of personal sexuality & feminism.

  11. When [an abusive man] tells me that he became abusive because he lost control of himself, I ask him why he didn’t do something even worse. For example, I might say, “You called her a fucking whore, you grabbed the phone out of her hand and whipped it across the room, and then you gave her a shove and she fell down. There she was at your feet where it would have been easy to kick her in the head. Now, you have just finished telling me that you were ‘totally out of control’ at that time, but you didn’t kick her. What stopped you?” And the client can always give me a reason. Here are some common explanations:

    "I wouldn’t want to cause her a serious injury."
    “I realized one of the children was watching.”
    “I was afraid someone would call the police.”
    “I could kill her if I did that.”
    “The fight was getting loud, and I was afraid the neighbors would hear.”

    And the most frequent response of all:

    "Jesus, I wouldn’t do that. I would never do something like that to her.”

    The response that I almost never heard — I remember hearing it twice in the fifteen years — was: “I don’t know.”

    These ready answers strip the cover off of my clients’ loss of control excuse. While a man is on an abusive rampage, verbally or physically, his mind maintains awareness of a number of questions: “Am I doing something that other people could find out about, so it could make me look bad? Am I doing anything that could get me in legal trouble? Could I get hurt myself? Am I doing anything that I myself consider too cruel, gross, or violent?”

    A critical insight seeped into me from working with my first few dozen clients: An abuser almost never does anything that he himself considers morally unacceptable. He may hide what he does because he thinks other people would disagree with it, but he feels justified inside. I can’t remember a client ever having said to me: “There’s no way I can defend what I did. It was just totally wrong.” He invariably has a reason that he considers good enough. In short, an abuser’s core problem is that he has a distorted sense of right and wrong.

    I sometimes ask my clients the following question: “How many of you have ever felt angry enough at youer mother to get the urge to call her a bitch?” Typically half or more of the group members raise their hands. Then I ask, “How many of you have ever acted on that urge?” All the hands fly down, and the men cast appalled gazes on me, as if I had just asked whether they sell drugs outside elementary schools. So then I ask, “Well, why haven’t you?” The same answer shoots out from the men each time I do this exercise: “But you can’t treat your mother like that, no matter how angry you are! You just don’t do that!”

    The unspoken remainder of this statement, which we can fill in for my clients, is: “But you can treat your wife or girlfriend like that, as long as you have a good enough reason. That’s different.” In other words, the abuser’s problem lies above all in his belief that controlling or abusing his female partner is justifiable….
