Why is the NBC Miley Cyrus piece so important?

No, this isn’t new, but it’s social location is important. This is the foundation of all the Trump outrage from the left. Trump is not new. His dim and offensive ideas are not new, but they are being tweeted by the POTUS. THAT’s the source of the outrage of the left.

I think these ideas are bad and will soon pass away, but they will take  possibly a decade of some women’s lives until they work them through. If a man loses his 20s he’s lost a decade. If a woman loses her 20s she’s probably lost her shot at a biological family. That is a big price to pay and a generation of women are right now in danger of losing it. These women will have decades to morn the loss of a biological window they will never get back. This will change our society for the next hundred years.

If progressives are nervous about birth rate right now (religious conservatives are reproducing, not progressives), and they should be, wait for the generation of women who were sold a bill of progressive goods in their 20s at university. That wave of angry conservatism is the sort of thing that ends democracies and liberties. American culture is self-destructing but not in the linear way that both progressives and conservatives now fear. It is the backlash that really changes the world, and we are currently with gender and race setting up a tsunami. pvk

    The movement towards androgyny occurs in late phases of culture, as a civilization is starting to unravel. You can find it again and again and again through history. In the Greek art you could see it happening. All of a sudden the sculptures of handsome nude young men, athletes, that used to be very robust in the archaic period, suddenly begin to seem like wet noodles toward the end. And the people who live in such periods (late phases of culture)–whether it’s the Hellenistic era, whether it’s the Roman Empire, whether it’s the Mauve decade of Oscar Wilde in the 1890s, whether it’s Weimar Germany–people who live in such times feel that they are very sophisticated, they’re very cosmopolitan: “homosexuality, heterosexuality, so what, anything goes, and so on…”

    But from the perspective of historical distance, you can see that it’s a culture that no longer believes in itself. And then what you invariably get are people who are convinced of the power of heroic masculinity on the edges. Whether they be the Vandals and the Huns, or whether they’re the barbarians of ISIS, you see them starting to mass on the outsides of the culture. And that’s what we have right now. There’s a tremendous disconnect between the infatuation with the transgender movement in our own culture and what’s going on out there.
