Sorry about Molly Ringwald

I recently “showcased” 1980s actress in “teen movies”, Molly Ringwald. I apologise for this, since it seems she is, unfortunately, a keen pro-abort, having retweeted this:

It is always a shame when an attractive, privileged woman like her advocates the killing of unborn babies.

On sexual morality

A couple of my recent Facebook comments on sexual sin, including homosexual acts:

On Romans 6 (New Testament):

“In the context, as far as I can see, that refers to the Original Sin to which we are all heir, and includes all sorts of evils, including homosexuality. Our concupiscence is a result of our evil natures since the fall of Adam. Homosexuality is not the only punishment. Depraved heterosexual temptations and non-sexual sins are included in the same class. Even with God’s Grace, the wages of our Original Sin continue to trouble us.”

On Matthew 5:27:

“I take Matthew 5:27 to imply, not that a man’s natural desire for a woman is itself depraved, but a man’s acting on it, or wishing he could act on it (lust) is the sin (outside of marriage of course). It is not, in my opinion, a sin to notice that a woman is attractive; but if you wish in your heart that you could have sex with her, and would if you could, that is wrong. It is like hatred. It is not wrong to dislike someone, but if you hate him and would kill him if you could, that is a serious sin.”

I am sometimes accused of taking too lax an approach to the portrayal of sexual images and issues on this blog, especially in light of my professed religion. I would respond with a couple of points. The use of such images in pursuit of art or science or some political purpose can be more easily defended. Despite this, I have removed some images and posts because I realised that people’s interest was prurient in many cases. Nevertheless I have left some material up in pursuit of an antignostic or antifeminist aim, or both. We live at a time when puritanical feminism is strong, and a little pushback on that is desirable.

Going Ape

The above video is well worth a look. It is entertaining and instructive, especially for men.

It is also free of political correctness.

Some points asserted:

1. Alpha male primates (human and ape) benefit from being or looking as large as possible.

2. Alpha males dominate space.

3. Signs of ripe maturity, such as grey hair, can be an advantage for male primates (“silverback” gorillas and mature men).

4. Females bring out more competition for dominance among males.

5. A loud, deep voice (or adopting one temporarily) makes a big difference to dominance.

6. Alpha males remain calm in stressful situations.

7. Alpha males protect their group and ensure its cohesion.

Anyway, watch it for yourself. I think it is worth the time.

Five of the most charming women on film (videos)

Carolyn Farina (as “Audrey Rouget”) discusses Jane Austen with “Tom” in “Metropolitan” (1990):

Sean Young (as “Rachael”) meeting Deckard in “Blade Runner” (1982):

Elizabeth McGovern at the supermarket in “She’s Having a Baby” (1988) (ignore what Kevin Bacon is saying and focus on her):

The brunette running with the man on the beach throughout the following video (Her real first name was apparently “Claire”, but her surname is not recorded):

A still from the video:

################################################################################################################################################images (31)

This is the best version available of the video, which is Don Henley’s “Boys of Summer” (1984). Start at about 2:10 minutes for the best look at her.

I think for sheer graceful, lithe movement, that girl running on the sand in the white one-piece is exceptional, perhaps only equalled by the next example, namely:

Molly Ringwald (the redhead) dancing in “The Breakfast Club” (1985):

 

No doubt other men would have other lists and favourites, but those are mine.

I have observed women for decades now, and these are the most charming and romantically delightful images I can remember. If I think of others, and I am able to provide videos, I shall. But those are all I can remember at present.

But just to let the Serpent into the Garden, here is a short sequence from an historical film that appeals to me for all the wrong reasons. I have always found the first forty-five seconds of this royal wedding scene hilarious and a little bit sexy (Isabelle Adjani as Marguerite de Valois):

True Pouty Lips Are Rare

Truly pouty lips cannot be obtained using make-up.

Women with genuinely pouty lips just have them naturally. The two celebrities with the best natural pouts are:

Molly Ringwald:

and Tea Leoni:

A woman with a true pout just has it all the time. Basically, her top lip does not cover her upper teeth, which is a lot cuter than it sounds.

The effect is probably to create an exceptionally feminine and youthful look, in a similar way to what is discussed here. As a woman ages, her lips get less full and thinner. It would be interesting to see what changes occur in the lips of women like Molly Ringwald and Tea Leoni as they age. The cute effect of a true pout is not quite the same as puffy lips, but it is probably similar. I have seen some unflattering shots of Molly Ringwald, but she looks quite nice here, and her lips are still pouting away. I think this picture was taken in 2013:
