The Islamic Superego

The Islamic Superego

I have previously examined the view that Islam is a primitive religious expression and in their view of sexuality particularly so. Some recent examples:
“Islamic school principal bans girls from cross-country carnival because it would make them infertile”.
‘School principal believes if females run excessively they may lose their virginity”.
‘Thinking about another woman while having sex with your wife will make your children gay’.

How to Manufacture a Psychiatric Disorder

How to Manufacture a Psychiatric Disorder

Back in the day I became interested in dissociation disorders, a group of conditions where people zone out for periods of time. As with most  psychiatric disorders one must rule out organic or structural abnormality-epilepsy or a space occupying lesion. An EEG and MRI might be indicated. However the most common causation is psychological trauma beyond the brain-mind ability to cope both physiologically and psychologically. Pavlov (the Russian fellow with the drooling dogs) first described this and called it “trans marginal inhibition”. The ultimate outcome is now known as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The Freudian Shopper

The Freudian Shopper

I spent a considerable number of hours a few days ago with a fine person of the female gender engaged in a popular and decidedly feminine pastime…shopping. Malls, box stores, yard sales and thrift shops. She suggested going to look at wool as well, but the line was drawn in the sand at that idea.

Robotic Love:  Never Having to Say You’re Sorry

Robotic Love: Never Having to Say You’re Sorry

I recently read up on the ethics of sex with robots. Now the part that caught my interest was this…”there are certain people who can’t be in a healthy relationship for physical or emotional reasons so this kind of technology might really solve a deep human need for them.”

The Political Psychology of Pet Preference

The Political Psychology of Pet Preference

I was reading the other day about pet choice and social and political inclinations. Seems that republicans lean towards dogs and democratic socialists (or Canadian liberal equivalents) towards cats. The latter idea has been promoted in China for some time now…..
