17h42 UTC; MONDAY, 29 SEPTEMBER 2014: First off, Your Correspondent feels it best to extend his solidarities and sympathies with such in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the so-called "People's Republic of China" as are valiantly protesting for the cause of representative democracy and responsible government in the face of Beijing's objections and the insistence that the masses are somehow "incapable" of making wise or sound decisions for themselves.

Sounds like the AmeriKKKan "Tea Party" and "Christian Patriot" movements, does it not?

Has anybody considered where last Friday's Unfortunate Events at the Aurora (IL) Air Route Traffic Control Centre (ARTCC), with ensuing and wholesale disruption to the air traffic of Thy Dear and Lovely Land (in particular afflicting Chicago's two main airports, O'Hare International [ORD] and Midway [MDW], and the airspace across much of the American Midwest), may have been a willful and conscious attempt at sabotage by some class of a "lone wolf" saboteur with "Tea Party" or "Christian Patriot" "militia" associations hoping to carry out some class of a "false flag" attack aimed at General Insurrection Against Thy Dear and Lovely Land of the sort that the weird and unwholesome can easily exploit?

As for The Oxycontin Boar's sucking up to "Men's Rights" Zealotry and True Belief
with that "no means yes" delusion vis-a-vis rape and spousal abuse (and the defence of such being one with "cultural heritage", for one), such makes you wonder if the greater Men's Rights Movement's ideal is one of a caveman mentality when it comes to sexual relationships and sexuality; i.e., "catch 'em young, treat 'em rough and tell 'em nothing"--and to use Any Means Necessary, especially the sadistically ultraviolent, to ensure she "submits graciously" to his will and desires.  No wonder a lot of the cave art found in Europe (France especially) reveals a lot about our caveman ancestors' being rather open and candid about sexual matters, particularly considering where said caves were more often than not used for secret "coming-of-age" rituals where sexual introduction or instruction was involved. (Of note is where some of the cave paintings depict such in positions of priests or shamans having sex rituals with animals, as if such were a sort of fertility offering.)

Not to mention articles of faith condoning the (howbeit tenuous) tradition known variously as the jus primae noctis or the droit du seigneur, holding as they (theoretically) did that those of high rank had the right to sleep with (and have carnal relations with) women of lower status and standing at the pleasure of such in power. (It should be noted that some primitive societies in Latin America, Africa and Polynesia have been known to have similar practices.)

These I bring up in light of a new California law, "first in the nation" essentially, which holds that such collegians in state-funded colleges and universities who are silent, intoxicated or otherwise in hiding are deemed to be incapable of giving consent to sexual liasons with another student. In short, holding that "Yes Means Yes."

So till next time, folks: "73"
(Which, incidentally, was railroad telegraphers' shorthand for "goodbye.")
