Some man will not be able to have a wife/kids because of David Brooks.

     Yes, but I'm stumped as to why you think that man is you.

Strauss: Eine Alpensinfonie
Antoni Wit & Staatskapelle Weimar
Naxos



I guess you gotta read the movement titles to follow the action.  Night, sunrise, ascent, at the waterfall, and all that.  I find that following along with the program makes the music seem less arbitrary and more interesting.

Yep, that was a dangerous moment.  And now we're at the summit!  Yay!!

David Brooks completely consumed one woman's female erotic capital, divorced her 30 years later, and then married a millennial. Some man will not be able to have a wife/kids because of David Brooks.

Also the idea of being a "beta provider" like some here (eg Todd) repulses me. I want a woman to like me because she is enticed by my masculinity and soul.

My most heartfelt desire is a beautiful woman who accepts me sexually, but also kind of mothers me. But that's neither here nor there.

last time I listened to it, I was taken aback by the lack of energy and almost the slug-like tempi that were chosen.

Listen to his Fourth. Energy to spare and quite the opposite of slug-like tempi. But yeah, in many of the symphonies his tempi are on the broad side...which is one of the reasons I love his cycle. Slow gives me time to absorb and appreciate the details. His is my desert island VW. Especially love his 1, 3 (stoic grandeur), 5, 7, 8 and 9.

It just keeps getting better.

Todd is, once again, eager to let us know that he is giddy and amused.

A lot of my ideas on this issue were inspired by this paper, and my own experiences with the entitlement of even plain women in the United States in this era when they can open up their Tinder and get many solicitations by men who wouldn't make them their girlfriend but would eagerly use them for sexual novelty. This seriously impacts the girl's view of herself. "Wow, Chad slept with me, so obviously I must be deserving of a Chad-type boyfriend." But of course her male equivalents aren't Chads.

Either it's a joke...or victim blaming.

Either the sexuality of both sexes gets restricted a la most Islamic countries, or there is sexual freedom for all. The situation in which there are no restrictions on female sexuality but restrictions on male sexuality remain in place (no legal prostitution) is absurd.

     If you push the economic factor in sex relations don't you have to apply the same framework to female submission and domestic imprisonment, genital mutilation and all the other anti-capitalist features of traditional societies?

Yes, I've come to the conclusion that the way some societies restrict female sexuality is a consequence of an attempt to make the sharing of female erotic capital by males more equitable. Perhaps that's what the push to restrict abortion in the United States is about as well, though social conservatives wouldn't admit it.
