Hi readers. Hells bells. Hugh Hefner started the sexual revolution back in the 1950s because he thought we were holding back, stuffing things back down inside. Psychologically repressing ourselves and generally, because sex could make Hugh Hefner a pile of money.

But if Hefner had seen this stuff coming down the pike I believe he’d have been shocked, maybe he’d have to ask himself if what he began was an unmitigated blessing.

Sheeze man. I don’t object to any of this, but I’d pay good money to avoid being a part of a fair amount of it. And not only because it would likely bring on the big one.
For a while Mama Nature had to scratch her head about improvements in human survivability caused by hand washing, soap, and rudimentary understanding of disease. Suddenly instead of weak and flawed specimens of humanity dying before reaching the age of reproduction, far larger numbers were surviving until they’d reproduced. And Mama Nature knew the only outcome possible would be eventual de-evolution. Possibly having to replace humans as the dominate species.
The culling programs Mama Nature’s always done on every species were falling apart. Something was going to have to be done to point things back into the direction Mama Nature intended.
Bringing a species into a position of absolute dominance is one hell of a lot of work and takes a lot of patience on the part of Mama Nature. Lizards, barn owls, duckbill platypuses and other candidates all lacked opposing thumbs.
So Mama Nature finally decided to try another alternative. She invented feminism, which led inevitably to a lot of aborting instead of having to kill off youngsters by disease, hunger and filth. Henceforth a foetus would have to convince the mother it was worth the price of admission before it was allowed to be born.
Concurrently in China Mama Nature tried a different method. She just gave the parents incentives to kill off all their girl-babies. This certainly had the salubrious outcome of reducing the number of female offspring living to reproduce, but Mama Nature considered it a bit broad-brush. It threw the baby out with the bathwater insofar as improving the species.
Mama Nature’s experiment hasn’t been going long enough to establish whether it’s a 100% success, but it is certainly telling her a lot about human beings. For instance, infants fathered by weakling beta males picked up in bars tended to be unconvincing for survival in the eyes of feminists. And those fathered in best-she-could-do wedlock by weakling betas also didn’t offer up convincing arguments for survival. Same with drunken beach orgies, impromptu filmings of porn flics, the whole range of sexual activities indulged without regard for genetic factors.
It’s going to take a while for the results of Mama Nature’s feminist experiment to reveal themselves, but whatever they might be, she’ll come out the other end with a better understanding of how to deal with human beings and modern medicine.
There’s still a possibility humanity won’t have to be replaced with barn owls.

I’m sharing it with you because there’s almost no likelihood you’ll believe it. This lunatic asylum I call my life has so many unexpected twists and turns I won’t even try to guess where it’s going. I’d suggest you try to find some laughs here. You won’t find wisdom. Good luck.
