Moral commentary by way of tea videos?

Get ready to be offended, no matter where you stand on this topic. Of course, you might also find it funny, which is rather sad when you think about it, since that means you recognize the irony of the current state of United States’ (western) moral values, and that animals generally behave better than we do, and they have NO moral values at all. But to continue…

If you haven’t seen or heard of the “Tea and Consent” videos yet, you will. For the as yet uninformed, this is generally about the “sex and consent” issues on college and university campuses. Wow. I mean, just WOW.

In the mid 20th Century there were (and to a lesser extent, still are) those who believed in, and tried to adhere (with varying degrees of success) to the belief in chastity/purity/virginity, meaning waiting until marriage for sex as opposed to the grungy, pathetically vacuous (I could go on with more adjectives, but I won’t) “no holds barred” lifestyle that has replaced what the Flower Children at least tried to clean up by calling it “making love.” Sodom & Gomorrah and the latter Roman Empire would be right comfortable with 2016.

Problem is, apparently, this free and easy morality (if that insults you, congratulations, you can read between the lines) has degenerated into a whole “new” sense of mysoginistic entitlement that makes the old “double standard” look nearly chivalrous. Not to say that there weren’t people back then who weren’t warning that this is exactly what it would come to. In fact, if some are still alive they are yelling “TOLD YOU SO!” until they are hoarse.

But this is all I am going to say, as there are bloggers and vloggers who are much more adept at putting a very fine point on it. If I find one who has done so, I will share it.

Otherwise, if you don’t understand all the nuances behind this, I am not going to club you with a verbal bat to try to wake you up – enjoy the videos. The rest of you can join me in rueful, ironic laughter at the truth/value of observing God’s commandments in preventing this and other related outrages.
