Rape Culture and how we men play a part in it 💯


I acknowledge every woman I meet on the street, or in an elevator, or in a stairway, or wherever, in a way that indicates she’s safe. I want her to feel just as comfortable as if I weren’t there. I accept that any woman I encounter in public doesn’t know me, and thus, all she sees is a man — one who is suddenly near her. I have to keep in mind her sense of space and that my presence might make her feel vulnerable. That’s the key factor — vulnerability.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t spend much of my life feeling vulnerable. I’ve come to learn that women spend most of their social lives with ever-present, unavoidable feelings of vulnerability. Stop and think about that. Imagine always feeling like you could be at risk, like you were living with glass skin.

As modern men we must seek out danger. We choose adventures and extreme sports in order to feel like we’re in jeopardy. We make games of our vulnerability. That’s how differently men see the world from women. (Obviously, stated with full acknowledgment that there’s a vibrant community of extreme athletes that are women, who regularly risk their safety as well. However, women don’t need to engage in adrenalin sports to feel at-risk.)

A woman must consider where she is going, what time of day it is, what time she will arrive at her destination and what time she will leave her destination, what day of the week is it, if she will be left alone at any point … the considerations go on and on because they are far more numerous than you or I can imagine. Honestly, I can’t conceive of having to think that much about what I need to do to protect myself at any given moment in my life. I relish the freedom of getting up and going, day or night, rain or shine, Westside or downtown. As men we can enjoy this particular extreme luxury of movement and freedom of choice. In order to understand rape culture, remember this is a freedom that at least half the population doesn’t enjoy.

Rape prevention is about the fact that a man must understand that saying “no” doesn’t mean “yes,” that when a woman is too drunk/drugged to respond that doesn’t mean “yes,” that being in a relationship doesn’t mean “yes.” Rather than focus on how women can avoid rape, or how rape culture makes an innocent man feel suspect, our focus should be: how do we, as men, stop rapes from occurring, and how do we dismantle the structures that dismiss it and change the attitudes that tolerate it?

Since you are a part of it, you ought to know what rape culture is.

Rape Culture is an environment in which rape is prevalent and in which sexual violence against women is normalized and excused in the media and popular culture. Rape culture is perpetuated through the use of misogynistic language, the objectification of women’s bodies, and the glamorization of sexual violence, thereby creating a society that disregards women’s rights and safety.

Now that you know what it is, what can you do about rape culture?

Avoid using language that objectifies or degrades women

If a friend says she has been raped, take her seriously and be supportive

Speak out if you hear someone else making an offensive joke or trivializing rape

Think critically about the media’s messages about women, men, relationships, and violence

Be respectful of others’ physical space even in casual situations

Always communicate with sexual partners and do not assume consent

Define your own manhood or womanhood. Do not let stereotypes shape your actions

It’s okay if you don’t do what you went to school for.


Guys, life starts with being happy with your situation. If you’re unhappy, you won’t have the energy to get through the day. If you don’t have energy, you won’t have any motivation. Doing things you like helps you be happy.

I’m not saying quit your day job and rush headless into your ideal situation. It won’t work.

Think things through then follow through. — Eddie Rickenbacker

Not everything you’re going to try is going to work, and that’s okay. What’s important is that you don’t get too comfortable and don’t try new things.

My friend says: “What’s the worst that can happen?”

That’s a very important question. A lot of times we’re scared of doing something for fear of making our situation worse. A lot of times, that’s all it is — fear. A lot of ideas are not as scary as they seem.

I used to be scared shitless of dying. It was probably my number one fear. I mean, there’s still so much left to do in this world and I’m aging faster than I wish I would. But this quote changed my perspective on that:

“It is not death a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.” — Marcus Aurelius

I was scared because “I didn’t do anything”. By that I mean that I was simply doing my 8–5 job and playing video games after work, looking forward to weekends.

What kind of life is that? Is that really what life is all about?

I bet you’re wondering the same too. Or maybe you’re one of the lucky ones who found their true purpose in life.

Nonetheless, the important thing lies in the quote above: “beginning to live”.

What does that mean?

It means something different for everyone.

For me, it meant doing things out of my comfort zone. It meant conquering all my fears. It meant learning as many skills as possible. And ultimately, it meant becoming the best version of myself, and do the same for people around me, whether online and in person.

Man’s opinion in a feminist dominated World


Well, it’s true that I, George Collins, could never understand what it’s like to be a woman raised in this country. I will never know what it’s like to be looked at continually, or judged for my appearances, to be thought of as something somewhat inferior that can’t do the same work, on and on and on. But what is absurd about the idea is that I, George Collins, can’t make the effort, the empathetic effort, to actually go and really try and understand the experience of the people very different from me.

And in understanding that, I’ve enriched myself, and I can actually create something, I can even write something that’s very interesting. That from my outside perspective, I could have some interesting insights and that by taking the effort to understand the experience of other people, I’ve not only enriched myself, but my work will be that much deeper.

So, whenever I try and write a story about someone in my blog—obviously they come from different cultures, different periods, different genders, different races—my whole goal is to try and feel what it’s like to have been them. I know I can’t get close enough. I know that there’s going to be some things that are somewhat inaccurate about it. But why shouldn’t that be the ideal that we have in culture? Why shouldn’t that be a good thing to actually try and understand as deeply as possible the experience of other people? And why does it have to be labeled as some sort of cultural appropriation or some form hidden oppression when in fact it has always been the ideal in culture, for instance, to sort of get inside the experience of other people? I think that’s a question worth examining.

Advertisers Versus consumers/Customers


Advertisers have to constantly innovate to break through the “tuning out” that consumers learned to do. Post-Stalin Soviet leaders were increasing challenged to maintain the illusion that their system was superior to the west.

The Flynn Effect is the increase in intelligence in each generation since the 1930s. One study estimated that population IQ increases about three points per decade; another study estimated that the average IQ in 1932 was 80, on the same scale that the average IQ in 1997 was 100, i.e., people gained twenty IQ points in two or three generations. Many explanations have been proposed for the Flynn Effect, including better schooling, nutrition, and fewer infectious diseases. I propose that the arms race between advertisers and consumers contributed to the Flynn Effect.

There’s never been another Hitler or Stalin in countries that have mass media. The great dictators unleashed mass media on populations unvaccinated against mass lying. Late twentieth-century dictators were stuck in remote, isolated countries. With the Internet and video, oppression will be even harder for future dictators. Just try to get a wi-fi connection in Havana or Pyongyang!

Meritocracy’s a False Believe


Meritocracy has become a leading social ideal. Politicians across the ideological spectrum continually return to the theme that the rewards of life — money, power, jobs, university admission — should be distributed according to skill and effort.

The most common metaphor is the ‘even playing field’ upon which players can rise to the position that fits their merit. Conceptually and morally, meritocracy is presented as the opposite of systems such as hereditary aristocracy, in which one’s social position is determined by the lottery of birth. Under meritocracy, wealth and advantage are merit’s rightful compensation, not the fortuitous windfall of external events.

Meritocracy is a false and not a very salutary belief. As with any ideology, part of its draw is that it justifies the status quo, explaining why people belong where they happen to be in the social order. It is a well-established psychological principle that people prefer to believe that the world is just.

Meritocracy offers flattery. Where success is determined by merit, each win can be viewed as a reflection of one’s own virtue and worth. Meritocracy is the most self-congratulatory of distribution principles. Its ideological alchemy transmutes property into praise, material inequality into personal superiority. It licenses the rich and powerful to view themselves as productive geniuses. While this effect is most spectacular among the elite, nearly any accomplishment can be viewed through meritocratic eyes. Graduating from high school, artistic success or simply having money can all be seen as evidence of talent and effort. By the same token, worldly failures become signs of personal defects, providing a reason why those at the bottom of the social hierarchy deserve to remain there.

This is why debates over the extent to which particular individuals are ‘self-made’ and over the effects of various forms of ‘privilege’ can get so hot-tempered. These arguments are not just about who gets to have what; it’s about how much ‘credit’ people can take for what they have, about what their successes allow them to believe about their inner qualities. That is why, under the assumption of meritocracy, the very notion that personal success is the result of ‘luck’ can be insulting. To acknowledge the influence of external factors seems to downplay or deny the existence of individual merit.

Despite the moral assurance and personal flattery that meritocracy offers to the successful, it ought to be abandoned both as a belief about how the world works and as a general social ideal. It’s false, and believing in it encourages selfishness, discrimination, and indifference to the plight of the unfortunate.

How entertainment is Becoming a Golden lie


A “golden lie” is a false belief that induces co-operative behavior and fosters communities. “Golden lies” can also induce emotions, including fear, anger, empathy, and inspiration, when nothing in our physical environment is threatening or inspiring us. We choose to believe “golden lies” because we derive benefits from these false beliefs.

Women are attracted to male entertainers, especially men who are gifted with language, acting, or music. Acting is deception, e.g., a poor man pretends to be a king. Music, poetry, and storytelling (literature) induce emotional experiences in listeners, even if there’s no physical reason to feel an emotion. Theater, novels, and movies are “golden lies” in which we suspend our disbelief to experience emotions. E.g., seeing a rainbow after surviving a storm lifts our spirits. Talking about seeing a rainbow after a storm can invoke the same emotions. Emotions can be especially strong when we experience them in a group, which makes a community stronger.

For our ancestors, music, poetry, and feasting were experienced in religious contexts, along with rules for men and women about mating. Today men take women on dates where they pay talented men (chefs, actors, musicians) to entertain but not mate with the women, and increase the women’s interest in mating with their dates.

The “Arms Race” Between the Individual and the Community

If the “arms race” of our prehistoric ancestors was between men and women, in the religious era the “arms race” was between the individual and the community. Stealing bread was the most common crime of the pre-modern era, as readers of Les Misérables know. If your children are starving, should you steal bread and risk harsh punishment? Or should you trust that invisible beings will feed your children if you don’t steal? Should an individual consume alcohol or go fishing on the Sabbath? And which gods should you worship? These were life-or-death questions, but today seem like minor issues.

Make Reading Your DNA


Reading is trending.The internet’s taken something uncool and given it a makeover. Reading is the new kale: worth stomaching because it’s Good For Us.So good, in fact, that we should do as much of it as we can. More is more! Everyone should be reading one book a week — no, wait, one book a day.

That’s why Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates,Barack Obama and Elon Musk are successful, after all.The more we read, the smarter we’ll get.But where do we find the time? We have to do it faster, faster, and faster still!Blog posts tell us How To Read 300% Faster In 20 minutes! Or, How To Trick Yourself Into Reading More Books!

Speed reading has become a competitive sport: a race to see who can devour the New York Times Bestseller list quickest.And according to UCLA psychologist Patricia Greenfield, when the brain skims, less attention and time is allocated to slower, more time-consuming processes, like inference, critical analysis and empathy.

In other words, we aren’t giving ourselves enough time to grasp complexity or develop opinions of our own.Even if we assume speed reading doesn’t really work, we still need to address the real question: why would we want it to?I have nothing against reading 100 books a year — if that rate comes naturally to you.

Why do we read, anyway?

Consider three types of reading:

The first is passive. Scrolling on Facebook, flicking through a magazine in a doctor’s room, tapping away on Twitter. This reading happens to you.

The second is practical. Reading for a purpose. Because we want — or need — to learn something. At school, college, or for personal improvement.

The third is pleasurable. Not just fiction or magazines or fluffy escapism. Reading for pleasure doesn’t have a category: it’s subjective. It happens when something makes you tick: an article, a novel, an autobiography.

Reading because you want to, not because you feel you should.Thinking “Yes — this is for me.” Getting so lost that you don’t hear the door being knocked.
It’s this reading that lengthens our attention spans, expands our vocabulary, and help us squirrel away golden nuggets of information. We can’t help it — when reading is pleasurable, the content stays with us.

Elon Musk and co., attribute their success to reading because they read purposely, and apply that learning in the wider context of their careers. They didn’t plough through huge volumes of material as a box to be ticked.

As Mortimer J. Adler wrote:
“In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.”

In case you choose quality over quantity, here are a few tips that can help you to find books that can get through to you:

Try the classics…
Try dropping self-help books for a while. Most books are repackaged versions of a handful of classics. It’s worth starting with the original wisdom and going from there. Choose the best of the best in the topics that interest you. Reading a selection of these, carefully, will take you far.

Be selective;There will naturally be some books that apply to you and your life more than others. That’s ok. Curate a selection that makes sense for you.

Re-read;If you’re trying to expand your knowledge in a certain area, re-reading something that inspired and resonated with you will be more impactful than reading new books that reiterate the same.

Take notes;We retain information much better when we take notes manually.

Final thoughts;
In Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life, Anne Lamott writes,

“For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.”

Reading is magic. It’s teleportation and telepathy.It lets us roam across space and time, oceans and continents.It lets us pick the brains of the most astonishing people on earth, access the wisdom of the past and see into the future.

Reading has many unintended consequences: we hold multiple interesting perspectives in our mind, practice listening to the opinions of others’, and accept we’re not always right.
Yes, reading educates, it increases empathy, it emboldens us. But it can also just be fun. Don’t read to make yourself successful. Read to make yourself happy.

Popularity Versus Privacy


Vulnerability is highly relatable and it’s often easier to drop the mask in print rather than face to face.
Harnessing vulnerability to produce engaging copy lets others catch a glimpse of unfettered humanity, something real and raw. In a world where the prevailing tendency is to curate one’s life on social media to inspire the admiration and envy of others, being oneself bucks the trend.How liberating to let the real you shine, warts and all!
How liberating to see someone so at ease with themselves they’re happy to let it all hang out!

However, bucking the trend is now a trend in itself.
Being real and raw is no longer enough. The more people let loose and embrace brutal honesty, the lesser the impact of such an approach. Suddenly, it’s about shock value to capture the clicks at all cost.So the clothes come off in a desperate attempt to get attention as words shiver and wither on the page, redundant.

The good thing with unexpected visual assault is that it gets a reaction. The not so good thing is that it could be one of annoyance, especially when you’ve seen the same person starkers more than once.I love the human body in all its multifaceted glory but I’m also a staunch proponent of always leaving something to the imagination.

What is the real long-term cost of those clicks though?
I do not plan to ever disrobe online because the internet is forever, and I’ve never felt the inclination to foist my birthday suit upon the unsuspecting. Also, I value my privacy and that of my family and friends.Therefore I only share what I hope may offer some value to others in a spirit of service, something I’ve carried over from journalism.

As a writer, value is derived not from what you can get or take from readers, but from what you can offer them.Attention is a gift you cannot demand any more than you can force praise, support, or interaction.

A case for polygamy


Lots of people see polygamy as something necessarily restrictive or exploitative of women because the man is getting to be intimate with more than one woman, and that’s the only aspect they consider. But women can gain from it too.

Living together as a family allows women to support each other in a deeper way than is otherwise possible and, I believe, it gives each woman more room to do her thing than she might have if she was a man’s only wife. Time doesn’t always wait when it comes to matters of the heart.

And as a matter of fact, it allows women to pursue their personal goals.
While polygamy certainly isn’t a choice everyone will make, a part of making any choice is understanding that there are alternatives to what everyone else is doing.

Bonus information.
When you see the word polygamy… The image that comes to mind is a man with many wives but what do we call a woman with multiple husbands? Here is your answer..

Polygyny is the act of a man marrying multiple wives.
Polyandry is the act of a woman marrying (for queer women) or getting married to many husbands

📺 Netflix’s 2019 Problem


Although Netflix had a record-breaking November, it’s problems can be record-breaking as well. Following #Netflix’s lead, nearly every major video company is moving into the streaming media business. And that means also moving their content off Netflix and onto their own services.

Disney — along with its soon-to-be purchased Fox — is launching its streaming service, Disney+, next year and pulling its content, including Pixar and Marvel films, from Netflix. The combined AT&T/Time Warner, which has licensed its popular TV series “Friends” to Netflix, may also pull its movies and TV shows from Netflix when its own streaming service gets off the ground at the end of 2019.

That potential loss is part of the reason Netflix has ratcheted up its original content spending lately, and is expected to spend $12 billion to $13 billion on content in 2018 — most of which will go toward original content.

As of October, original content made up 8 percent of content, measured in hours, on Netflix, according to Ampere.

🎞 Video Get More Interactions than Images


The more followers an #Instagram business page has, the more likely it is to include video in its mix of post types, according to a study from Quintly. As part of its report, Quintly analyzed more than 8.9 million posts during the Q1-Q3 2018 period from more than 44,400 profiles ranging in size from 0-1k followers to more than 10 million followers.

The analysis yielded an interesting benchmark: the vast majority (72.6%) of posts from these various pages were Image posts. In fact, posts were more than 4 times as likely to be Images as Videos (16.7% share), and almost 7 times more likely to be Images as Carousel posts (10.7% share).

However, the finding that 1 in 6 posts are Videos masks some intriguing differences by profile size. When sorting the results on post type distribution by page size, the analysis found a near-linear correlation between size and likelihood of using Videos. In other words, the larger the follower number, the more likely the page to use videos as part of the post mix, and the less likely to use Images.

Africa in a paragraph


The San people of Southern Africa are excellent hunters. Although they do a fair amount of trapping, the best method of hunting is with bow and arrow. The San arrow does not kill the animal straight away. It is the deadly poison, which eventually causes the death. In the case of small antelope such as Duiker or Steenbok, a couple of hours may elapse before death. For larger antelope, this could be 7 to 12 hours. For large game, such as Giraffe it could take as long as 3 days.
