The story is about how women and men's roles have changed since the days of our hunter/gatherer past, and how our roles then have continued, in a manner, to this day. It's not what FOX (bless their hearts) portrays it to be at all.


You buy that?

When were womens roles to have gang rape fantasies?

Give me a break

Do YOU have those fantasies? if anyone YOU should be offended by that notion

I don't get offended about much, but especially not by people's fictional stories.

Maybe because of the point Bernie was trying to make in his story - that some gender roles from the hunter/gatherer days, are still with us to this day, in some manner.

Hows that ?

Government has replaced man as the provider these days, and that role only is going to be increased according to Sanders own political views.

The self described socialist.

be as patronizing as you wish, but neither do you.....break it down on how it make sense then?

Heres the thing you can sit here and act however you wish, but you and I BOTH know the only reason that you used FOX news was to push an agenda and to have people come to your thread...

This whole story wasnt even broke by FOX news, why didnt you use all the sources BEFORE FOX ran it, that are of the same opinion that this piece should be looked at?

That's a terrible essay. I mean that as in, it's just written very poorly.

As far as the meaning, I get where he was going but then he just trails off on what seems like a disenfranchised man's personal rant about a really bad break-up. He was 30 when he wrote this and it looks like it was for an "edgy" publication purpose and I imagine those first few lines were just to grab some attention and appeal to youthful angst against authority when "shock value" was still pretty effective.

The point about the rape fantasies is how it's something people haven't shrugged all these years as can be seen by the types of news that sell. I've personally heard both men and women admit to these sorts of fantasies. I think it's just hyper-submissive fantasy for the sake of submissiveness and not about actual "rape".

Either way... this is an intentionally provocative piece written by a young man almost 45 years ago. Scientists have written papers talking about rape fantasies as well but they get accolades for their work.

If a crappy article he wrote is the most sensational dirt they have on him, they're pretty desperate. It's obvious the essay isn't about him having rape fantasies nor condoning it; he's making a social commentary on the phenomenon.

So far this election, I'm still saying Sanders 2016 all the way.

Sanders' ideas scare a lot of people, Sanders himself? Not so much...


If the right wing has its way, they will be successful in portraying him as a sexual deviant and a "radical hippie"... From the OP source:



His controversial views of male and female sexuality have little explanation, other than he was a part of a radical hippie movement back in his younger years.


LOL!

Bernie Sanders , still in the 70s . He needs to step into the 21st Century.

I don't think Sanders has a chance in hell of getting the nominations but he is going to bring up some issues that will have the
conservatives begging for mercy; like corporate person hood and subsidies to already obscenely profitable corps hiding their money in offshore accounts and not paying taxes like the rest of us have to. That argument will have some legs...!

Jeb will be paying attention; you can take that to the bank!

This sex fantasy is a non story...the middle class has some real issues that are concerning them and some old 50 shades of gray stories doesn't even make it into the top 25.

Fantasies are pretty innocuous and tame compared to this style of BS....

Bernie Sanders is unlikely to even get the democratic nod.

Even if he did he would likely loose.


I won’t be sure here because I never thought they would elect Obama so anything is possible.


But if Bernie somehow got the dem nomination the GOP would crucify him with the socialist label

Bernie is a bad bet too left wing for the American electorate

The only reason it is a story is because the DNC machine dug up all sorts of trivial nonsense in Romney's past.

I do remember those threads.

You?

I doubt Sanders has a chance in hell either, and I doubt it.

It would be nice if people actually understood what corporate personhood was.




Corporate personhood is an American legal concept that a corporation, as a group of people, may be recognized as having some of the same legal rights and responsibilities as an individual. For example, corporations may contract with other parties and sue or be sued in court in the same way as natural persons or unincorporated associations of persons. The doctrine does not hold that corporations are flesh and blood "people" apart from their shareholders, executives, and managers, nor does it grant to corporations all of the rights of citizens.[1]


en.wikipedia.org...

Key word some.

And:



The provisions commonly known as the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) became law in March 2010.


www.irs.gov...

So some people want Sanders to make snip up to get elected.

I changed the title because I saw that people were getting the wrong impression. I stated that I changed the title.

The reason I used FOX is that I was reading FOX when I came across the story. I don't have to "trick" people to come into my threads.

I'm finished defending my actions to the likes of you. You don't even understand the story.

she was raised in a VERY Catholic, Conservative flyover state household.

What Bernie wrote there was nothing short of honesty about sexual mores that can be debated now. Where his time was skin mags that showed "how IT was supposed to be", we can choose more than 31 flavors on the internet, for free...
That's all that was being said. Anything else, you or the people you let influence you, is all in your head. Perception is unique to the observer.

Some of us are old enough to remember the McGovern landslide, the last real genuine left winger the dems picked to run against old tricky Dick Nixon.

Nixon trounced the left winger in probably the biggest landslide in US presidential election history, and remember Nixon was in the throes of Watergate and the Vietnam War.

Its either that one or another time the dems ran a super liberal, Walter Mondale ( who said he'd raise taxes!) and Reagan trounced him.

The dems are delusional if they run a super left-winger. The times they did they got trounced

Agreed. It's like he needed more words to get his point across clearly.

It's a certain style of writing that grabs the attention of the reader, but I did find the story lacking. But I get his point. It's something to think about. Some men and women DO have rape fantasies.



If a crappy article he wrote is the most sensational dirt they have on him, they're pretty desperate.


My point exactly. He wrote several "interesting" stories in his youth.
