Is Anal Sex Safe?

Japanese sacred island where women are banned gets Unesco world heritage listing

"A sacred island in south-west Japan that bans women and where male visitors must strip naked before going ashore has been declared a Unesco world heritage site.

"Okinoshima, located midway between the south-western main island of Kyushu and the Korean peninsula, was once the site of rituals to pray for maritime safety and a centre for relations with China and Korea that stretch back as far as the fourth century.

"The reason for the ban on women has never been publicly stated, but one theory – which extends to other aspects of Japanese culture – cites the Shinto belief that menstrual blood is impure."

UNESCO recognizes Tomb of the Patriarchs as Palestinian heritage site

Any day now, UNESCO and The Catholic Church should declare Hebron as a Greco-Roman site for its Hellenistic roots, and Japan's men-only island where the sacred bathing ritual takes place, a Roman bathhouse. Jews and Japanese share more than a traditional mikvah; the Jewish home which is also home to Arabs is called by a Roman name, as Japan is called by the Chinese name. The Church has been trolling Jews for 2000 years, and when they say they won't stop until every Jew accepts Christ, they mean it.

I also feel there's been an unusual amount of focus given to phallic symbolism since the Trump administration took office. Weren't most of these religions written to promote the psychological well-being of warriors?

From CatholicCulture.org: "The UN’s Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has recognized the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron as a World Heritage Site, approving a request by the Palestinian Authority.

"Israeli had strongly opposed the Palestinian request, but a majority of UNESCO committee members voted in its favor, recognizing the “Palestinian site.”

"The Tomb of the Patriarchs is recognized by Jews as the burial site of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. For Muslims the Ibahimi Mosque is located on the site." UNESCO recognizes Tomb of the Patriarchs as Palestinian heritage site - July 10, 2017 catholicculture.org

"Hebron, located in the Judean hills south of Jerusalem, is the site of the oldest Jewish community in the world, dating back to Biblical times. Today, Hebron is home to some 250,000 Palestinians and approximately 700 Jews. An additional 6,000 Jews live in the adjacent community of Kiryat Arba.

"Hebron (Al-Khalil in Arabic) is located 32 kilometers south of Jerusalem and is built on several hills and wadis, most of which run north- to-south. The Hebrew word Hebron is explained as being derived from the Hebrew word for friend (haver), a description for the Patriarch Abraham. The Arabic Al- Khalil,literally the friend, has a nearly identical derivation and also refers to Abraham (Ibrahim), whom Muslims similarly describe as the friend of God. Hebron is one of the oldest continually occupied cities in the world, and has been a major focus of religious worship for over two millenia." jewishvirtuallibrary.org

"It is noteworthy that while Hebron was in Muslim hands, Jews were often barred from their holy site and subject to pogroms by their Arab neighbors. But after coming under Israeli control in 1967, both Jews and Muslims share access to the shrine." camera.org

Happy Independence Day: Columbia (name)





From Wikipedia: ""Columbia" (/kəˈlʌmbiə/; kə-LUM-bee-ə) is a historical name used by both Europeans and Americans to describe the Americas, the New World, and often, more specifically, the United States of America. It is also a name given to the "Spirit of the Frontier" of which was used to illustrate Manifest Destiny among several other American political causes. It has given rise to the names of many persons, places, objects, institutions, and companies; e.g., Columbia University, the District of Columbia (the national capital), and the ship Columbia Rediviva, which would give its name to the Columbia River. Images of the Statue of Liberty largely displaced personified Columbia as the female symbol of the U.S. by around 1920.[1]

"Columbia is a New Latin toponym, in use since the 1730s, for the Thirteen Colonies. It originated from the name of Italian explorer Christopher Columbus and from the ending -ia, common in Latin names of countries (paralleling Britannia, Gallia etc.)."

Donald Trump, Pepe the frog, and white supremacists: an explainer



I wish I'd read about the Alt-Right on Hillary Clinton's web site sooner. I missed all the election news that could've illuminated the mystery.


The "OK" emoji 👌 and hand signal has a double meaning in the Alt-Right context for "WP," which stands for white power. This sign is sometimes referred to as a Satanic symbol. It's no surprise that everything in this movement is about doublespeak, or passive-aggressive, undercover communication.

Like Polandball, this frog is a motif for white supremacists to create comic strips and saleable goods around. I don't think all of them are LGBT, but maybe the people who went after Hillary are afraid of being outed.

Meet the Proud Boys, the Chauvinists Providing 'Security' at a Right-wing Event Near You



Image via streetcarnage.com


The new Alt-Right / Alt-Light group acts like Westboro Baptist Church when they storm public places and get filmed without a permit amongst the people they set out to provoke on camera (assuming these people are strangers to the provocateurs, not actors). It's an obnoxious precedent set by the fringe groups to justify free speech through aggressive bullying tactics, all for show.

Are they Nazis? Anything seems possible disguised as a joke.

Via Haaretz: "For all their anti-immigrant sentiment, the group devotes a lot of its online activity to arguing that it’s not a white-supremacist outfit. McInnes has posted a video called “Why We Don’t Let Nazis in Proud Boys,” but the arguments can be unconvincing. For example, McInnes starts by saying "I would like to make it clear that the Nazis don’t exist. The KKK is not storming through your campus calling people the N-word, the noose on your professor’s door was not put there by a Nazi. All those hate crimes you see are hoaxes .... Even the smoking guns you have, like that Sieg Heil they did [for Trump in November], you know those people were kidding, right?”"

READ Meet the Proud Boys, the Chauvinists Providing 'Security' at a Right-wing Event Near You - The leaders of the new group, among them Vice founder Gavin McInnes, say they're just fun-loving guys, but a racism monitor describes them as a 'fight club' seeking clashes with leftists.
