Basic tags for wordpress comments.

This question of how to format comments comes up periodically, and it is difficult to respond to in the comments section because if you don’t escape the tags wordpress just processes them and doesn’t show them. This isn’t intended to … Continue reading

There was no sobbing or squealing, and Merlin was magnificent.

Following my original post on Dunkirk, I have now seen the movie (twice). I am pleased to report that not only was there no sobbing in the theater, but there was no squealing when Harry Styles came on screen. It … Continue reading

Wife beaters and the prairie muffins who love them.

Does this mean there wasn’t any sobbing?

Maritime Supremacy

When women first began attending the U.S. Naval Academy in 1976, many observers foolishly asked “What’s the point?” While progress at times may have seemed imperceptibly slow, the naysayers have been proven wrong. We now have a steady stream of … Continue reading

Two additions to the men’s sphere lexicon.

Cane Caldo coined a hilarious term in his comment on Submission with a twist, and denying rebellion. A concubine is a committed slave who may not leave without her master’s command, and she receives no more providence when that occurs. … Continue reading

C.S. Lewis on the erotic necessity of submission.

In response to my last post reader Gaius Marcius was kind enough to point out the C.S. Lewis quote on erotic necessity: Lewis’s phrase ‘erotic necessity’ is not from That Hideous Strength, but from his Spectator article ‘Equality’ in 1943, … Continue reading

Wilson’s intellectual stink bomb.

Pastor Doug Wilson is clearly a smart and learned man. At times I greatly appreciate his insight, as with his explanation of Luke 22:35–38. But at other times Wilson stumbles in his writing, and when he is challenged to defend … Continue reading

Spotting the presence punisher in the wild.

The Other McCain nailed it (yet again).
