America’s Devastating Sexual Problems

December 17, 2017

Some Causes of Sexual Harassment

Well, with regard to sexual harassment, I cannot witness what goes on behind closed doors any better that you can.

I’m sure you have observed that women are increasingly complaining about sexual harassment.

You may note that men only infrequently complain about sexual harassment.

What could account for these gender reporting differences?

The explanations would seem to be limited to learning or biological differences between the sexes and motivational interactions between these two factors.

You could argue that women do less sexual harassing than men. Or, you could argue that men simply complain less about female sexual harassment, but it is all the same. Yes, some would like to argue that there are no gender differences in sexual motivation.

While conducting therapy with both married and dating couples in my psychological practice (36 years and counting), I observe that women seldom complain about not getting enough sex in their relationships; in fact they sometimes complain that their mates are too demanding of sex. Men far-more-often complain that their mates are not so interested in sex.

I learned a rather gross saying while in the Navy. It makes a germane point, so please forgive me for this quote. One “old-salt” stated with great confidence: “Men give love to get sex and women give sex to get love”.

I am certain that there is an element of truth to this rather harsh statement.

When it comes to sex, you can be bet that sexual enticement and coercive entanglement is an “art-form” often practiced by both sexes. However, I am convinced that, more often, men are highly motivated by sex and more prone to such shenanigans.

Feminists most often complain about an unfair balance of power between the sexes (more powerful men, less powerful women). To whatever extent this is true, it could serve as an inducement for males to try to sexually dominate females and for females to weaponize their sexuality.

There is more I would like to say on this matter, but I have a larger point to make.

The point is simply this: The “pornification” of America, along with many other cultural evolutions,  have catalyzed a pervasive increase in our sexual behavior problems.

I hope you will take time to read the following article I published in order to be better informed on this important topic. It is technical in nature, but if you will read it in its entirety, you will gain an increased understanding of what will happen to a society when moral codes of sexual conduct are weakened and a population is bathed in soft and hard pornography.

Please note that the graphics in this article are historical and these trends have vacillated over more recent times. However, a contemporary review of these and other measures assures me that America’s sexual behaviors continue to be devastating social problems.

Sexual Robots: Who Needs People?!

Sexual Robots: Who Needs People?!

Ok, this blog is just a “tease” for another more substantial blog that I am working on. This other “sexy” blog will appear within the next few days.

In the meantime, various rapidly developing media technologies and a myriad of other factors, including the meteoric growth of pornography industries around the world, has led to an amazing revolution in the realm of human sexual behavior.

Here is one stunning example of what I mean.

Of course we are now having our collective noses rubbed in a flood of other examples. Consider recent female allegations of sexual misbehavior by powerful men, for example.

I will have more to say on this particular social sexual revolution soon!

All We Need to Know: John Conyers III

December 8, 2017

All We Need to Know: John Conyers III

Disgraced sexual predator father, Congressman John Conyers, has endorsed his 27 year-old son, John Conyers III, to replace him in Congress.

Michiganders, the following video and newspaper article is all you need to know about John Conyers III.  Now you can vote for more governmental corruption and other ghetto-behavior shenanigans, or something better for America.

I am sorry for the following video reality therapy, including some very strong profanity and racist language…uttered by this young possible Federal Senate candidate. But, reality will set us free!

Also,  following New York Times article will document this young man’s very troubled love-life. Allegations and counter-allegations between Conyers III and his girlfriend, as to who did what to whom, could not be proven. 

The case was dismissed, But, as the old saying  goes, “It takes two to tango”!

Wake-Up Michigan…it is your call!

Who Are Real Fascists: Left or Right?

 Who Are Real Fascists: Left or Right?

Are you a Fascist? Do you even know?

Without a clear definition, based upon a history of the development of this political philosophy, you certainly will never know. 

Interestingly, the real origin and meaning of the terms Fascism and fascist have been purposefully hidden from easy inspection for what I consider the worst propagandistic reasons.

This term, obviously a pejorative one, is used by teens against their parents rules; as well as it is now commonly and indiscriminately used by adults against each other when they disagree about social, political and economic matters.

If I were to provide the hint that the violent leftist group ANTIFA (i.e., anti-fascism) takes its name from exactly this specific history, it would only confuse the matter. Don’t you find it confusing?

If you do, you may already know the real history of this modern political epithet.

I urge you to view the following video featuring America historian and patriot Dinesh D’Souza, author of high quality books and documentary videos.

I also highly recommend that you read his stunning new book entitled, The Big Lie

Now, please learn just who really are the Fascists among us!

Two Basic Kinds of Behavior-2

December 2, 2017

Two Basic Kinds of Behavior-2

In my first blog about “Two Basic Kinds of Behavior”, I presented the following simple truth (spelled with a very small “t”. This is because science has a way of generating new conflicting truths (also spelled with a small “t”). As far as I know, there are still just two kinds of behavior. At least, this has been the common convention within the field of  Behavioral Psychology.

Behavioral psychology normally breaks actual observable responses/behaviors (observed in some empirical, i.e., measurable fashion) into classes of responses/behaviors that are learned through consequences and those learned via stimulus associations. The first class of behaviors are called Operants and the second class of behaviors are called Respondents.

I briefly explained these two basic classes of behavior in my first blog on this topic. You may wish to review it below. I believe this explanation is technically accurate, however it is an great over-simplification of the vast subject matter on this topic.

While I was a professor at Indiana University South Bend, I encountered introductory-level students who found it difficult to understand how the great complexity of human behavior could possibly be accounted for by only two classes of behavior.

I assured these students that my advanced classes about behavioral psychology would reveal a large number of  other biological, psychological factors and principles that can interact in complex ways with Operant and Respondent behaviors to form the stunning variety of human perceptions, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors that are observed around the world.

Part of my answer to introductory level students was to note that there are only 118 elements in the periodic, table of known elements, and only a portion of these elements combine in ways to make-up all earthly matter. Some have recently indicated there are 119 elements, with perhaps more yet to be discovered. It seems remarkable the so few elements could combine to make-up all matter in our world.

In comparison, recent discoveries by neuroscience have exponentially increased the complexity of the interacting determinants of Operant and Respondent behavior to unimaginable levels.

For many years, we have learned that computers contain bytes of information configured in 0’s and 1’s. Formerly, it was also though that something similar was operational in the way that the human brains store and utilize what they have learned throughout their lives.

The article at the end of this blog provides evidence that this “binary code in the brain” is an immense over-simplification. It is now estimated that our brains use at least 26 different codes to store what we learn. Even more astonishing is the estimate that the human brain is capable of storing as much information as is stored on the entire Internet.

The internet is estimated to contain about one petabyte, or about a quadrillion bytes of information.

Without question, our life-time histories of stored bytes of learned information and their hundreds of millions of  interconnections, powerfully interact to effect our perceptions, beliefs, emotions and behaviors.

Therefore, these hundreds of millions of interconnections made manifest through only two classes of behavior would appear even more complex than the combining of elements that account for all earthly matter.

This perception may help us to understand why the study of human behavior has lagged so far behind the progress made in other sciences. 

The science of human behavior must “soldier-on”, however, because the behaviors of  the human species remain its own worst enemy.

World of Endless Islamic Atrocities!

World of Endless Islamic Atrocities!

“A Religion of Peace”: Total unmitigated liberal propagandist B.S.!

Now Islam is threatening the Vatican, calling them worshipers of “the Cross”. They also called them “the Crusaders”.

Many Americans, who are ignorant, and Islamist’s, who are pathological liars, blame the Crusades on Christians. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Here is the most recent horrifying bloodbath in India. Some  Islamist’s just didn’t like the way other Islamist’s were worshiping. 

If this will not convince you that Islam is not a religion of peace, the following is a list of world terrorist attacks by Islamic murderers.

Wake-Up DoDo Bird Americans, they are coming to get you.

Thanksgiving for Americas Juedo/Chrisitan HerItage: Protect It!

November 23, 2017

Thanksgiving for America’s Judeo/Christian Heritage: Protect It!

Part of the Judeo/Christian heritage to which I refer to is the modern tradition of being kind, considerate and accepting of other religions….so long as they are not trying to destroy us!

On this Thanksgiving it is good, and even therapeutic, to be grateful for all of the blessings that have come to America, our families and ourselves. 

We should “get-real” about about the many things that have been so good about America, but also what we may need to do to protect them. 

Sadly, it is important to remember the many recent Islamic Attacks on America (and the rest of the world) as we give thanks for our many national blessings and our ability and dedication to protect them.
