The Religious Fundamentalism of Men

Men, discuss and decide, with their inherent great authority the freedom that women have gained regarding to their bodily functions! If I was a woman, I would be extremely angry and very hurt by that. I would fight those particular fundamentalists amongst men who try to do this and by every logical means at one’s disposal.

Surely, "Those men must feel something towards their supreme arrogance or are they emotionally disabled by the indoctrination, and domestication, which has been done to them by the practises and dogma of their particular religion?" 

See, Domesticated Man – Domesticated Humankind –  ‘wolves to pet dogs’!

See, REBT, disablement, the self-harming of children and the vulnerable, or/in damaged societies or/in some damaged countries caused by (some) religious authorities. Those religious authorities, can so easily, ‘cash in’ on a past or the present ‘default’ situation, personally or en masse. The more socially advanced a country, with less damaged people; the more secular in nature they tend to be. 


Minister defends abortion limit

Dawn Primarolo
Dawn Primarolo is not persuaded of the need to change the law

Health Minister Dawn Primarolo says the government does not believe there is sufficient scientific evidence to lower the legal abortion limit of 24 weeks.

She said nothing had persuaded the Department of Health that survival rates had improved for extremely premature babies born before that time.

The Pro-Life Alliance wants the upper limit for terminations to be cut.

But the British Medical Association says the number surviving at 24 weeks is still "extremely small".

Take The "Sex Test" 

Department for Children, Schools and Families and their fear of nudity contained in school library books, publications, educational DVD’S, and the Internet.

Ref, The backward state of sex education in the UK. Besides the UK having many Faith, Church, and Religious Schools (sex for pleasure being somehow wicked) – the high abortion rate and general unhappiness of children in the UK due to the UK’s ‘popular’ media obssesion with (educational) nudity and turning it into smuttiness or into turning educational nudity, and artistic-educational nudity, vindictively against the Teachers, Schools, and their Pupils.

A Catch 22?

Why does sex and relationship education (SRE) matter?

"Our children learn about sex and relationships from the very youngest age, even

if we don’t talk with them. Some of the things they learn are incorrect, confusing

and frightening.

In a world where sex is used to sell things from food to fast cars, and celebrities’

lives become everyone’s business, we should talk to our children to help them

make sense of it all.



As well as this, in the UK we have the highest rates of teenage pregnancy in Western


We also have high rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Effective SRE does not

encourage early sexual experimentation – but it does enable young people to mature, to

build up their confidence and self-esteem and to understand the reasons for delaying

sexual activity until they are ready".

About luckyme0

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting. Interests: REBT Counselling, Atheism, Secularism, Humanism, Psychology, Reading, Popular Science, School Ethos, Philosophy, History, Family, Parenting, Psychology, Horse Riding, Sailing, Rescue Boat Driver, Skiing (Teppichswinger), TV Documentaries, Motorbike Cross Country Riding, Volunteer Sports Stewarding, Writing, Primitive Man, Pre-history, Social Anthropology, British Humanist Association, BHA, Meaning of Life, The Big Questions, Where am I, What am I, Why am I, Hippie Love, Knowledge, Education, Globalisation. Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
