The Culture Shock They Never Mention

On September 7, 2021, I was working as a legal asistant and legislative aide for state legislator and in this capacity I recieved texts and a call from someone who was supposedly his client. He claimed to be a schizophrenic bipolar person in the Al Canon jail on a contraband phone. It soon devolved intoContinue reading “The Culture Shock They Never Mention”

Hedonist Orthodoxy and Work Ethic

In the previous few articles, I have written about hedonist orthodoxy which is the normative system which has there is a proper and improper way to engage in leisure time. That this is a subnorm based on a subepistime within the broader context of Rawlsian liberal ethics that are the main normative morals of ourContinue reading “Hedonist Orthodoxy and Work Ethic”

Apple Juice and Liquor

Often, and I have written about this before, I have been admonished for my sober, chaste, lifestyle devoid of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, and pornography. I should according to them “live some”. I am a published author on Amazon with 5 star reviews for fiction, I write poetry, and much more. I am hardly a squareContinue reading “Apple Juice and Liquor”

Hedonism and Populism

One of the most curious social phenomenon is that so many decades after the sexual revolution, sex is still regarded as edgy. Same with alcohol. People talk about drinking heavily like it is some bold and radical act of subversion. The Volstead Act hasn’t been a thing for a while. Having never had an alcoholicContinue reading “Hedonism and Populism”

Rawls, Ghosting, and Honor

It used to be that breaking up by text message was considered a new low in social norms. Today, breaking up by text message is bordering on chivalrous in light of the popularity of ghosting. The ultimate defense of ghosting is Rawlsian. Its only defense is that it does not violate the negative liberties ofContinue reading “Rawls, Ghosting, and Honor”

The Right to Humanity

Is it a tragedy if someone with a disability is denied, by social convention, the fruits of human life? I am not referring mostly to sex and romance but that is an easy example to use. The left has a contradictory relationship with sex and romance being constituent in a full life. Like with otherContinue reading “The Right to Humanity”

Flirting on the Spectrum

My approach to flirting is… I don’t, I just talk to people near me about whatever I think will interest them enough to talk to me. The world of romance, sex, and dating is something adults who adult do and getting anywhere close to it in conversation elicits a nervousness in me that the otherContinue reading “Flirting on the Spectrum”

Social Chernobyl: How Weirdos Become Toxic

As has been mentioned in my earlier articles, among the greatest issues being on the spectrum are vigilantes arising after being offended. After people are offended, they usually ghost and never return. This is perplexing, why? Whenever I’m in a friendship or some other type of relationship, I am aware that I am a singleContinue reading “Social Chernobyl: How Weirdos Become Toxic”

Dethroning Regina George: How to Redistribute Social Capital

Before on this website, I have written articles about the realities of being bullied for a disability, many of which people wouldn’t guess. Within those, I wrote about how anti-bullying policies tend to not be effective for various reasons. First, in Circus Monkey bullying that the bullying is consensual and to separate the victim andContinue reading “Dethroning Regina George: How to Redistribute Social Capital”

An Angel in Hell: Keeping Innocence in the Vegas that is Charleston

                For all my life, I have completely abstained from alcohol, recreational drugs, tobacco, sex, pornography, and anything like it. This in one of the most vice-ridden cities that lacks the reputation for being one: Charleston, South Carolina. In a society whose statistics show ever less vice, Charleston seems to maintain a very high level.Continue reading “An Angel in Hell: Keeping Innocence in the Vegas that is Charleston”
