At any given hour, there are about 61,000 people airborne over the United States.
“Remove the progressive goggles, and the history of the last 60 years looks different. The sexual revolution isn’t only a story of women freed from the burdens of chastity and motherhood. It is also a story about the triumph of the playboy,” she says.
“The new sexual culture isn’t so much about the liberation of women, as so many feminists would have us believe, but the adaptation of women to the expectations of a familiar character: Don Juan, Casanova, or, more recently, Hugh Hefner,” she says.
“I think young women have been utterly failed by liberal feminism and have the most to gain from a swing back against its excesses,” she says.
Writing those things in 1985 would have put her squarely in the mainstream of the Moral Majority.
Maybe good things are happening.
Here is Ms. Perry’s advice for young women.
• Distrust any person or ideology that pressures you to ignore your moral intuition.
• Chivalry is actually a good thing. We all have to control our sexual desires, and men particularly so, given their greater physical strength and average higher sex drives.
• Sometimes (though not always) you can readily spot sexually aggressive men. There are a handful of personality traits that are common to them: impulsivity, promiscuity, hyper-masculinity and disagreeableness. These traits in combination should put you on your guard.
• A man who is aroused by violence is a man to steer well clear of, whether or not he uses the vocabulary of BDSM to excuse his behavior. If he can maintain an erection while beating a woman, he isn’t safe to be alone with.
• Consent workshops are mostly useless. The best way of reducing the incidence of rape is by reducing the opportunities for would-be rapists to offend. This can be done either by keeping convicted rapists in prison or by limiting their access to potential victims.
• The category of people most likely to become victims of these men are young women between the ages of 13 and 25. All girls and women, but particularly those in this age category, should avoid being alone with men they don’t know or men who give them the creeps. Gut instinct is not to be ignored: It’s usually triggered by a red flag that’s well worth noticing.
• Get drunk or high in private and with female friends, rather than in public or in mixed company.
• Don’t use dating apps. They offer a large pool of options, but at a severe cost. It is far better to meet a partner through mutual friends, since they can vet histories and punish bad behavior. Dating apps can’t.
• Holding off on having sex with a new boyfriend for at least a few months is a good way of discovering whether or not he’s serious about you or just looking for a hook-up.
• Only have sex with a man if you think he would make a good father to your children—not because you necessarily intend to have children with him, but because this is a good rule of thumb in deciding whether he’s worthy of your trust.
• Monogamous marriage is by far the most stable and reliable foundation on which to build a family.

Sexual Revolution Hurt Girls
Lessons From Jude
Biblical illiteracy is our biggest threat.
It’s not the $30 trillion national debt, nor China nor Putin. It’s that we no longer know right from wrong.
Or, if we do, shrug our shoulders and go back to what’s streaming on whatever, and figure right and wrong are no big deal.
Debts don’t have to be paid and consequences are myths.
This indifference is encouraged by teachers and leaders and even preachers. They even defend things like this, or lack the courage to condemn it.
A nation that doesn’t care is a nation that is going to die.
So here’s from things from the Book of Jude to ponder.
. . . but now I find I must write of something else instead, urging you to stoutly defend the truth that God gave once for all to his people to keep without change through the years. 4 I say this because some godless teachers have wormed their way in among you, saying that after we become Christians we can do just as we like without fear of God’s punishment.
8 Yet these false teachers carelessly go right on living their evil, immoral lives, degrading their bodies and laughing at those in authority over them, even scoffing at the Glorious Ones.
10 But these men mock and curse at anything they do not understand, and like animals, they do whatever they feel like, thereby ruining their souls.
12 When these men join you at the love feasts of the church, they are evil smears among you, laughing and carrying on, gorging and stuffing themselves without a thought for others. They are like clouds blowing over dry land without giving rain, promising much, but producing nothing. They are like fruit trees without any fruit at picking time. They are not only dead, but doubly dead, for they have been pulled out, roots and all, to be burned.
16 These men are constant gripers, never satisfied, doing whatever evil they feel like; they are loudmouthed “show-offs,” and when they show respect for others, it is only to get something from them in return.
17 Dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ told you, 18 that in the last times there would come these scoffers whose whole purpose in life is to enjoy themselves in every evil way imaginable. 19 They stir up arguments; they love the evil things of the world; they do not have the Holy Spirit living in them.
Read Jude, in its entirety. It’s short. Read the Bible, for that matter. Ignorance is bad.
And if you find it hard to turn off a streaming show, or refrain from a mocha latte or speak out against a wrong, that’s when you know you must.
Lessons From Jude
Just to be clear, there is no plan to eliminate student debt. There is a plan to transfer that debt to those who don’t owe it.
Parallel Election Podcast Topic — Face The Culture’s podcast, A Tale of Two Elections, featuring whistleblowing authors Gregory Stenstrom and Leah Hoopes is available to the world.
Their The Parallel Election makes the slam-dunk case that vote fraud was real and massive in Delaware County, Pa. and gave the 2020 Presidential Election of Joe Biden.
The panel also featured moderators Stephen Gruen and Kim Kennedy, and myself.
It was revealed that Ingram Content Group reversed its gutless decision to stop the book’s distribution.
Gregory says poll watchers have defined legally enforceable duties and are different than observers.
“What they did in 2020 . . . was they created a class of people called observers,” he said.
Did these observers have any real power?
“You have to stay in a pen, you can’t look at ballots, and just sit there and shut up like a turnip,” Greg said.
The poll watcher, however, has real power.
They have by-right access to the ballots. This right, however, was ignored at the Delaware County counting warehouse in Chester. He said those in charge there made up the rules as they went along, and it took them five hours to fight their way in.
He said Pennsylvania Supreme Court upheld the powers of poll watchers but this was misquoted by the enforcers in large Democrat-controlled counties.
He said the court ruled that poll watchers as interveners for the citizenry are allowed to challenge ballots and uploading of drives.
“We are allowed to challenge anything that doesn’t have a chain of custody,” he said. “And they are forced to respond. We can even have somebody arrested.”
Again, however, Delaware County’s powers-that-be misconstrued the law.
“Some of the biggest liars and biggest participants in the fraud, were the attorneys,” Gregory said.
He said it must become common knowledge and something well understood by those running our elections what poll watchers and their powers are.
The book harshly criticizes GOP Republican candidate Sen. Doug Mastriano.
So who are they going to vote for?
“We are definitely not voting Shapiro,” Leah says.
“A vote is not a love letter,” Greg said.
Leah says their goal is to get the truth to the voters and are staying away from endorsing or promoting any politician.
Gregory’s excellent social media site, Patriot.Online, was mentioned. It’s growing, easy to use and has a strong Southeastern Pa flavor.
Give it as a Labor Day present as Christmas may be too late.

Answer to yesterday’s William Lawrence Sr Cryptowit quote puzzle: For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
