DailyMail:

Women who sleep around at university are ‘more likely to become depressed’

Young women who have a lot of sexual partners when they start university may be more likely to suffer from depression, a new study warns.

Researchers looked at the links between casual sex and depression, sexual victimisation and sexually transmitted diseases.

They found that women who have casual flings are more likely to suffer from depression than people in ‘romantic’ relationships.

Female students who have a lot of sexual partners when they are at university could be more likely to suffer from depression, a new study found

They are also more likely to be victims of sex crimes and to suffer from sexually transmitted diseases.

[…]

‘Sex in the context of romantic relationships was not correlated with depression. There are several reasons why hooking up, but not romantic sex, may be associated with poor mental health among women.

‘These include unfavourable attitudes toward sex outside of committed relationships, risk of acquiring a negative reputation, failure for the hook-up to transition to a romantic relationship , sexually unsatisfying hook-ups, and peer pressure or verbal coercion from partners to go further sexually than they want.

‘Although some of these issues may also arise within romantic relationships, most do not apply or occur less commonly in romantic relationships compared to hook-ups.

‘Indeed, dating relationships are perceived to involve more trust, intimacy, and social support compared to hook-ups, and they still appear to provide a more socially acceptable context for women’s sexual behaviour compared to hook-ups.

‘Although we found no correlation between depression and romantic sex, prior research has found that being in a romantic relationship is negatively correlated with depression and poor mental health – i.e. romantic relationships are actually protective – among young adults, especially women.’


Young women are literally getting screwed because of feminism. Virginity is treated like flaw rather than something of value. Girls are being told that they are empowered by having lots of sex with lots of guys.

Unfortunately, things ain’t working out like they were promised.

Somewhere along the line feminists decided that any kind of restraint on female sexuality was an oppressive tool of The Patriarchy®. So they threw the baby out with the bathwater.

I’m not one of those people who thinks that a woman should lose her virginity on her wedding night and then never have sex with any other man for the rest of her life. I think female genital mutilation (FGM) is barbaric. I do not believe that men have any proprietary rights over women’s bodies. No means no.

I am not a prude. There is a happy medium between the Madonna and the whore. The “hook-up” culture ain’t it.

We need to encourage our young women to say “No” more often. They need to understand that saying no is more empowering than saying yes. There is nothing empowering about allowing yourself to me used. The real power comes from being able to say “This is mine and you can’t have it.”

We need to teach girls that Lena Dunham is not a good role model. We need to tell them that “Boys who won’t like you if you don’t have sex with them really don’t like you anyway.”


Uh . . . no

Uh . . . no

    The best thing a girl can have to help her develop a healthy adult sexuality is a strong relationship with her male parent.

  2. votermom says:

    I remember that in one of Scott Peck’s books on his therapy practice way back when, he had a female patient who he said had a problem in differentiating between letting a man into her living room and letting him into her bedroom. She would oscillate between two states: either she would not have any relationships with any men, even casual friendships, or she would sleep with any guy she met. Back then that was considered nuts.

  3. The Klown says:

    WTF?

    United Nations climate chief Christiana Figueres said that democracy is a poor political system for fighting global warming. Communist China, she says, is the best model.

    China may be the world’s top emitter of carbon dioxide and struggling with major pollution problems of their own, but the country is “doing it right” when it comes to fighting global warming says Figueres.

    “They actually want to breathe air that they don’t have to look at,” she said. “They’re not doing this because they want to save the planet. They’re doing it because it’s in their national interest.”

      You beat me to it 🙂 Here’s the link, I noticed they had trailers…..

      http://oscar.go.com/nominees

      I guess the big snub is Oprah 🙂 Maybe when she does her next “slave” movie she’ll get beaten, raped and have her children stolen by the evil white rich guy. She was almost too cartoonish playing boozy who pretended to smoke, I almost wished Madea would show up a slap her upside the head and tell her to stop whining because she had a great, hardworking husband.

      My movies are all up for Razzies this year 😀

      • The Klown says:

        Every year Hollywood has a “feel good” nomination that is put up there so the movie progs can feel good about voting for it and the critic progs can talk about how wonderful it is. It’s almost never a genuine hit, usually it’s one nobody went to see in the theater.

        Sometimes they win a bunch of awards, sometimes just one, but almost never none.

        This year it’s 12 Years a Slave.

        They can’t have two, cuz that might split the votes.

      • votermom says:

        It’s rare these days that I want to watch or if I do watch, actually enjoy a movie that gets on the Oscar or GG list.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I like funny, stupid movies that my special kid enjoys at the local cinema cafe, therefore the Adam Sandler and Madea flicks. We did see The Butler because he just loves Oprah. 😉

          Last big girl movie I saw was Les Miserables at a real theater on the big screen with the fancy sound system. There was a jerk (bored husband or boyfriend?) who was texting throughout the movie. That was reallllllly annoying having that flashy thing in my peripheral vision and it just ruined my serious movie going experience. Last week a guy got shot and killed in a theater doing just that, sad as that was, I sort of understood the shooter 😉

        • leslie says:

          I saw “Her” last week and really liked the story. The actors were so good and Scarlett Johansson was terrific (I’m not a huge fan). I’m happy it was nominated.

        • driguana says:

          Interesting….I haven’t seen one movie on this list…and don’t intend to either. I’ve lost all interest in things Hollywood.

    • piper says:

      I’ll wait to see these when they’re on tv or netflix. Cheap, maybe or finding the movie theater a disgusting place to watch a movie.

    A critique of a critique of some critiques of Lone Survivor:

    Bailey74
    • 7 hours ago

    What these critics are addressing is the cinematic language used, not the event itself. It would be the ultimate sign of disrespect for anyone, left or right, to show the brave men who fought this battle to assume that it is a 1:1 depiction of reality. This is a work of fiction. As such, it is subject to certain criticisms based on the language employed to tell the story.

    So, when a critic calls the child of a fallen war hero a “moppet”, he or she is not mocking an actual child, but criticizing the way the film perhaps uses the child (in their opinion) to stack the deck emotionally on one side.

    Cinema is all about what is shown, what is left out, and the juxtaposition of one image against another. (Google the Kuleshov Effect for an illustration of this.) If we happen to glimpse a man in real life who is having a drink of whiskey, and that is all we ever see of him, we probably would not assume he is a drunk. However, if a film goes out of its way to show us a man for a brief period, and that brief period is him pouring a shot of whiskey and drinking it, then we might easily come to the conclusion the film is telling us the man is a drunk; because, of all the things the film COULD have showed us about the guy, it chose that, and that alone.

    How does this apply to the reviews under discussion? Well, consider that they say things like, “as the film portrays them” or “how Berg introduces [them].” They are criticizing the director’s choices, not the real soldiers, or the real event.

    And the conclusion that they are drawing, that anyone is free to disagree with as long as they recognize it’s a criticism of the film and the film alone, is that by making one side so heroic, and the other side either a) evil or b) largely anonymous, that it is marginalizing many innocent people who happen to be Afghani who are not members of the Taliban.

    And this gets back to cinematic language. What is shown, and what is not shown. I’m sure, and I’d guess the reviewers believe, that the director Berg is not personally wishing to give the impression to the film’s audience that Americans are better than innocent Afghani, and that these “brown” people should be marginalized.. But they are saying, with what his film chose to show, vs. what his film chose not to show, that is sort of the impression the film gave off.

    Again, you’re free to disagree, so long as you recognize they are interpreting the film’s subtext, and not reality. (At least as it applies to the excerpts provided in this article, I am not a keeper of everything these people have said on the subject.)

    • DeniseVB says:

      Typical progressive activist rant. The problem with them is that they have so many causes they’re angry about (still waiting for that OWS result, last I checked Wall Street and the Big Banks are still standing and Obama’s wealthier than ever). War, nuclear power, global warming, Save The _____and Free _____(fill in the blanks) It all gets watered down. They even make Alinsky cry, so I’ll give that a Twinkles Down 😀

  11. I see by the headlines in the morning rag a few prog senators must be in election years. Otherwise, seeing the words “preventable” and “Benghazi” in the same sentence seems surreal.

    My crazy uncle in Arizona sent me this one:

    MY NAME IS ALICE, AND I WAS SITTING IN THE WAITING ROOM FOR MY FIRST APPOINTMENT WITH A NEW DENTIST. I NOTICED HIS DDS DIPLOMA ON THE WALL, WHICH BORE HIS FULL NAME. SUDDENLY, I REMEMBERED A TALL, HANDSOME, DARK-HAIRED BOY WITH THE SAME NAME HAD BEEN IN MY HIGH SCHOOL CLASS SOME 30-ODD YEARS AGO.

    COULD HE BE THE SAME GUY THAT I HAD A SECRET CRUSH ON, WAY BACK THEN?

    UPON SEEING HIM, HOWEVER, I QUICKLY DISCARDED ANY SUCH THOUGHT. THIS BALDING, GRAY-HAIRED MAN WITH THE DEEPLY LINED FACE WAS WAY TOO OLD TO HAVE BEEN MY CLASSMATE.

    AFTER HE EXAMINED MY TEETH, I ASKED HIM IF HE HAD ATTENDED MORGAN PARK HIGH SCHOOL.

    ‘YES. YES, I DID. I’M A MUSTANG,’ HE GLEAMED WITH PRIDE.

    WHEN DID YOU GRADUATE?’ I ASKED.

    HE ANSWERED, ‘IN 1975. WHY DO YOU ASK?’

    YOU WERE IN MY CLASS!’, I EXCLAIMED.

    HE LOOKED AT ME CLOSELY. THEN, THAT UGLY, OLD, BALD, WRINKLED FACED, FAT-ASSED, GRAY-HAIRED, DECREPIT SON-OF-A-BITCH ASKED,

    ‘WHAT DID YOU TEACH???

    I bet cutting funds to Amtrak was a GOP compromise. Amtrak is the one thing I want my government to spend money on. Also, Uncle Joe rents one of his family compound homes to his secret service guys, I’m sure this means he’ll be raising the rent.

    • helenk3 says:

      there is less money spend on Amtrack and commuter rail in this country then many other countries.
      but there is some waste that should be cut in the passenger railroad business. It does need an overhaul

    • 1539days says:

      Sorry, but I hate everything Amtrak stands for. Besides a bad experience with them, commuter trains take away from the potential to run more freight along those rail lines. That actually makes money.

      • helenk3 says:

        most commuter rail runs on freight lines and pay the freight companies for track use. there is very little delay to freight by commuter lines. They do take a lot of people off the roadway. Stand in Penn Station NYC some morning where the subway, New Jersey Transit , Metro North RR, Long Island RR and Amtrak all bring people to NYC and take a look at how many thousands of people use them every day and think of all these people driving and trying to park in NYC. Same with Chicago and many big cities

        • 1539days says:

          I have less of a problem with intra-city commuter rail, but I would prefer that it be run without a lot of government subsidy.

        • helenk3 says:

          passenger transportation will never pay for it’s self. If it is run right there will be less cost, but it will always need either state or federal funding.

          My biggest argument with metrolink was the scheduling. the board felt it should only be for the 9 to 5ers. I know there are many workers who do not work those hours. They could not use the trains but pay for them with their taxes. I could never get them to understand that

        • 49erDweet says:

          I like the way London does it. Fifteen underground and light rail companies with over 4000 rail cars and 18 individual bus companies with over 7500 buses, all running an automated and integrated system the local govt’ has set up, and enforces the standards for. The companies operate independently and are designed to meet needs of riders AND return profits to owner/investors. The network averages over 3.5M passengers per day, and except for a few buses pretty much shuts down for 4 hours late at night.

After a minute I felt something warm and realised that you pissed yourself. I pushed you away and that’s when you ran but I wish you had stayed. You peed on me but it’s OK!
