Will reading more books get me the same enjoyment that watching summaries do? I’ve just had a weird affection for them since high school.

There was a Christian book that got some headlines maybe two or three years ago. It was for parents on parenting strategies to avoid having gay children. Mainly based around healthy relationships and such. It has been completely removed from the internet I can not even find a trace of it. Does anyone remember the author or name of the book.

>> No.22091998

Shouldn't it be pretty obvious how to treat your children if you don't want them to be gay?

>> No.22092007

I have no children I am not interested in it for parenting reasons. It was deleted from amazon and there news articles about it, but I could find it with search results. Now I cannot find it at all.

The results even from Yandex are extremely controlled. You actually can no longer find a book that speaks negatively about having gay children at all, from the Christian perspective.

>> No.22092008

Reading books is inherently effeminate. If you're a reader you're likely to produce homosexual offspring and shouldn't reproduce. Leave it to the real men.

yeah i just found the pacing slow and the epileptic prostitute as a plot device boring. also it felt just really predictable. it felt like a downgrade from the first two books

>> No.22091858

The prostitute is the text forcibly read by the reader / fucker / pimp and contested over. Billy as a RAMRANCH doesn't get it. It is the revisitation of the prior action: she is a stand in for a stand in. Wait until you've repeated your failure a couple of times and gotten bored of it.

What do you feel about the 15 year old in No Country for Old Men? Like obviously not, "Do you get a boner for a 30-40 year old vietnam veteran fucking a child," but rather, what is the role of the veteran rejecting sexually abusing a child, a rejecting "inducting" a child-woman into womanhood, but rather advising her that she will pay a price in future for the decisions she's making as a child?

Why does the Sheriff marry a child in 1946?

>> No.22092017

I too love this book. It was the first of McCarthy's books I ever read. I've since read BM and his two newest, and this one is surely at least as good. I decided to read it when I read what Roger Ebert wrote about it:
>Curiously, my love of reading finally returned after I picked up Cormac McCarthy's Suttree, a book I had already read not long before my first surgery. Now I read it two more times. I was not "reading the same book." I was reentering the same experience, the same occult and visionary prose, the life of Suttree so urgently evoked. As rarely before, a book became tactile to me. When Suttree on his houseboat pulled a cord and brought up a bottle of orange soda pop from the cool river, I savored it. I could no longer taste. I tasted it more sharply than any soda I've ever really had. When Suttree stopped at the bus station for a grilled cheese, I ate it, and the pickle, and drank the black coffee. I began to live through this desperate man's sad life.
Great essay as well.

Zizek had no idea about Peterson's ideas and Peterson had no real idea about Marx so it was a terrible debate overall. There was practically no overlap. Peterson's bug bear is "postmodern neo-Marxism" which has almost nothing to do with Marxism. So you can quiz him all day about what Marx said or did but you're not getting at the heart of the argument

>> No.22092025

haven't watched the entire debate yet but why are people saying he lost so bad and did he acutally?

>> No.22092028

Nobody lost the debate because it wasn't a debate. The one adversarial point was Zizek asking Peterson to name some postmodern neo-Marxists and Peterson mentioned one name (forget who). That's about it, the rest was them either agreeing with each other or just going on about their ideas without much thought for the other guy

Found this novel randomly at a second hand store and was thoroughly impressed.
Main character is a Green Beret who reads Yeats, its also got a pretty good sequel about his life as a police officer in the seventies called Night Dogs.
