TKC MUST READ!!! CHUCK CONTEMPLATES ROBOTIC TECH SOLUTION TO GENDER WAR IN THE MIDST OF HARVEY WEINSTEIN SEX ASSAULT CONTROVERSY!!!
Tonight we offer an opportunity for Kansas City residents to have their say about a Hollywood scandal that has dominated the national news cycle this week.
To wit . . .
TKC COMMENT MOGUL CHUCK OFFERS HIS PERSPECTIVE ON THE CULTURAL ZEITGEIST AND THE FUTURE BATTLE OF THE SEXES!!!
As Harvey Weinstein heads to Europe for rehab the rest of the plebs are left to contemplate the implications of a media titan allegedly using his influence for some rather nasty ALLEGED acts described by a growing number of high-profile women.
And so, here's the big picture from a denizen of our blog community. Checkit:
CHUCK: Harvey Weistein = Feminism = Sex Robots = NFL Players = The Circle Of Life
Bonanza was the first "Color" TV show. My dad loved it. After the first few episodes, my family hopped in the car in Ruskin Heights, drove straight up to Truman Corners (Where my mom, would soon meet John F. Kennedy.) and bought, for the princely sum of around $500.00 (Big fuckin money back in 1959.) an RCA "Color" TV.
It was a seminal moment in my life. I have never forgotten how amazed I was at the technology.
Just 30 years ago, Gordon Gekko was on the beach, with a 8 lb. phone, telling Charlie Sheen that "Greed is good". That phone was about $500.00. Now, your TV IS your phone and a pretty good one is $500.00.
Just 20 years ago, I saw my first Plasma Flat Screen. It sold for about $25,000.00. Now, you can get a kick-ass TV for $500.00.
Technology and Culture by themselves, are subject to rapid change, together the effect can feel exponential.
Hollywood Harvey Weinstein, formerly Tinsel Town's "Lovable Louche" has left the building, as in the fuckin United States and he ain't comin back any time soon. Roman Polanski will probably meet him at the airport with a couple of underage, $500.00 hookers.
Guys like Harvey birthed the female animus and resentment which fueled (justifiably so) Gloria Steinem's 1970's Feminism Movement. As Harvey flies over troubled waters in search of expiation (Yeah, right...) and his former friends perform ablutions, abnegations and disavow any knowledge of his activities faster and more emphatically that the guy who runs the "Mission Impossible" crew, I thought that we would all do well, to think about the cost of Sex Robots.
A $500.00 sex robot, that looks like Blake Lively and fucks like porn star on coke is just around the corner. You KNOW it is! It's cumming folks and this technology, WILL have a dramatic effect on the culture.
Feminists and women, are justifiable pissed off at guys like Harvey and, let's admit it, the anger has and does spread to guys everywhere. Guys know it. You have to be really, really careful what you say to the ladies, or, you will be crucified on social media, maybe lose your job and be ostracized in the public stocks. You probably deserve it.
The Cultural Overton Window, now moves so fast, that you can be ex post facto convicted of newly created sins and behaviour on social media and in the public square that were NOT sins just a few years ago. Check out the sins of Ben Affleck. The videos are everywhere of his loutish behavior, that only drew smirks from the TMZ and MTV people at the time.
This brings me to the NFL. Feminism, more specifically strident feminism is "taking a knee". Feminists, in a way, are pissing off their customers. Men.
Sex Robots. I am not trying to piss anyone off, but, if a guy can date "Char Mac" and not worry about a few gropes or untoward remarks about her rack, then...?
You know, just know, that they will be able to cook too, right?
