Quote# 88546

(Corrected the author's name, author is Doug Wilson--not Fred Wilson)

Because we have forgotten the biblical concepts of true authority and submission, or more accurately, have rebelled against them, we have created a climate in which caricatures of authority and submission intrude upon our lives with violence.

When we quarrel with the way the world is, we find that the world has ways of getting back at us. In other words, however we try, the sexual act cannot be made into an egalitarian pleasuring party. A man penetrates, conquers, colonizes, plants. A woman receives, surrenders, accepts. This is of course offensive to all egalitarians, and so our culture has rebelled against the concept of authority and submission in marriage. This means that we have sought to suppress the concepts of authority and submission as they relate to the marriage bed.

But … our banished authority and submission comes back to us in pathological forms. This is what lies behind sexual “bondage and submission games,” along with very common rape fantasies. Men dream of being rapists, and women find themselves wistfully reading novels in which someone ravishes the “soon to be made willing” heroine. Those who deny they have any need for water at all will soon find themselves lusting after polluted water, but water nonetheless.

Uh... You'd better tell these ladies that they're doing it wrong, then.

@Adrian: you win forever.

@Doug Wilson: Both my wife and I had a long, good laugh while reading this screed of yours. We laughed because, this evening, I will spend several extremely enjoyable hours licking my wife's long, glossy leather boots until they have a beautiful shine. She will be wearing them at the time. I am 6'5", and she is 5-foot-nothing, and I mass three of her. We have a fun dynamic, since the last party we went to involved the two of us dressing like Master Blaster from Beyond Thunderdome (she rode on my shoulders). And it is possible, indeed quite likely, that the one who "penetrates, conquers, colonizes, plants" this evening will be her.

It pleases both of us to be everything that terrifies you. Contrary to what you believe, the water is quite cool, sweet and fresh, compared to the sewage-contaminated road mud you'd have us all drinking.

I...wow. I'm envious, frankly. :P

@HappyGazpacho, Blue the Thief: It's from "The Pro" by Garth Ennis.

It's a great funny read, if you're into that sort of thing.

Garth Ennis.

Of course.

I should have known just by looking at the comic.

My favorites are the women holding the porcupine, weed-eater, stick of dynamite, fire hydrant, and the Christmas tree.

Yeah, that's my default reaction image for rape apologists and similar scum :P

@Blue the Thief: Tabasco sauce? I think these ladies know just what to do with this :D

Dreams of Rapists? Far from it. My dreams have however had a number of rapists being killed in any way I can imagine. Lucid dreaming and all that. The accused have a right to a fair trial though, so I'm stuck with venting on games to act that kinda thing out. Brb Bioshock 2

Didn't Loki say the same thing in the Avengers movie?

"Because we have forgotten the biblical concepts of true authority and submission"

Like slavery, rape a girl and get a wife, stoning, genocide to show who is boss and so on?

"This is what lies behind sexual “bondage and submission games"

Oh you dirty you. They got the submission part, which should please you to no end.

But what about male masochists and female dominatrices?

Not very clear on the difference between "fantasy" and "reality," are you Doug? I guess the use of the words "biblical" and "true" in the same sentence was the first tip off. I suggest you seek professional help for your confusion.

Oh, and you may want to ask your therapist for some basic books on how to talk to women. You clearly have A LOT to learn about them.
