Treading While Muzzled

Superorganism’s page on Wikipedia[1] has this quote from 17 year old Japanese lead singer Orono Noguchi:

“Ever since I was little I had two big goals,” says Noguchi, “One of them was to be a musician or an artist of some sort, and the other was to go to college in the States. That’s why I made the decision to go to Maine by myself when I was fourteen.”

Pretty impressive, right? I thought so.

I mean: A nation whose men made themselves so safe that girls from countries on its periphery can move here alone as children to do pretty much whatever they want unmolested. That’s who you thought were impressive, right? Especially when you consider that they did it for no profit to themselves.

  1. For reference;

    Deut 25:4 You shall not muzzle an ox while it [b]treads out the grain.

    1 Corinthians 9:8 Do I say these things as a mere man? Or does not the law say the same also? 9 For it is written in the law of Moses, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain.” Is it oxen God is concerned about? 10 Or does He say it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written, that he who plows should plow in hope, and he who threshes in hope should be partaker of his hope.

    1 Timothy 5:17 Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine. 18 For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain,” and, “The laborer is worthy of his wages.” 19 Do not receive an accusation against an elder except from two or three witnesses.

  2. Feminism is ironically founded on an unshakable faith in the benevolence of men. This is implicit in (as just one example) the whole complaint about “rape culture”. Feminists have faith that men will solve all of their problems, which is why they loudly and regularly insist that only men can solve their problems. Any proposed solution to a feminist “problem” that involves women taking even the smallest of actions is immediately shouted down. They know that the more they falsely accuse men of lacking good will, the more men will strive to prove their good will. As absurd as it is, it works beautifully so it is hard to argue with.
