Milt battles feel-good censorship and the Agelastes, and Getting back at your Ex: The Posting of Revenge Porn, along with Akasha the Psychic Soul Healer

Let’s talk email.

Got an email, actually the second in 2 weeks, from a guy who has become a steady critic of The MiltnMia Show. Not that he doesn’t like what we do, it’s just that he feels we have veered far afield from where we had originally began. I’m not gonna paste the email here, as it’s written in ‘text-talk’ and is filled with far too much vulgarity (not that I get offended at vulgarity) but he notes that I begin every show, 68 so far, with a mention that we are a sexual relationship podcast, and yet, more and more, the themes we’re exploring have…well, little to do directly with sexual relationships!

I agree.

Yes, we are ranging far afield and taking on a wider and wider range of topics, primarily because Mia and I find them interesting and have something to say about them, and because people keep bringing questions to us. Now, in a nod to my critic, let’s call him O, I will concede we are exploring ground that isn’t necessarily of a sexual nature or even deals with relationships; however, so many messages come in from people listening to the show regularly and who have questions which veer us from our original position that I no longer bat an eye when someone asks for our opinion on, say, bullying (this week’s show) or depression or oppressive mothering, the list continues. Many of these ancillary issues, though, have a direct bearing upon and are affecting couple’s relationships, such that I almost always include them in our shows since people have taken the time to write us with issues that are meaningful to them.

O has a taste for the strictly sexual and doesn’t have a lot of patience for our ‘other’ themes, but hey, O, you’re just gonna have to learn to live with us, because it is doubtful whether or not Mia and I will return to a ‘strictly sexual relationship’ format, again primarily because people want more from us than just our Victorian views on sexuality.

Apparently, we struck a sour note with another listener awhile back, a woman who just hasn’t been able to let it go. We’ll call her Nameless. Nameless became offended while listening to our show on Rape and almost every week since, she’s gotten up on her high horse to berate us for our far too flippant ‘opinion’ on how rapists should be dealt with. Now, here is a woman who claims to be a shaman and spiritual medium and an enlightened being, yet judging from the bile dripping from her messages, she may be enlightened but only partially, because it’s my opinion you cannot feel hatred for anyone and still assume the mantle of a divine being, can you?

I mean, how does calling for the castration of all rapists fit in with Divine Love?

When I called her on this contradiction, the hate fucking flew my way even further. Odd, isn’t it?

I point this put, without reading her messages here, because I am finding a very disturbing trend amongst a lot of so-called ‘enlightened people’, people who exude love and peace and who demand to be seen as one of Gaia‘s protectors, and yet who spill some of the most hateful thoughts and invectives when they feel offended or when one of their cherished ideals has been threatened; as if being offended gives them the right to suddenly sweep away their ‘love vibes’ and engage in vitriol.

For my part, hate is hate, and you end up being an ugly hypocrite if you can’t love or at least accept your purported enemies and their thoughts and views. Too, it concerns me that so many well-intended people shudder with outrage and call for their opponents’ deaths when they encounter opposition to their, again, oh so cherished ideals.

We have become thin-skinned and way too serious-minded about our ideals, friends. Attacking those who disagree with you is cowardice and works against the ideal you’re trying to promote. There’s plenty of room at the human table for everyone, and yet we are in the midst of a very ugly period of feel-good censorship of everything we disagree with.

Rabelais feared above all what he called the ‘agelastes‘, those far too serious people without laughter in their lives who do not smile on others but who sit in menacing judgment over their peers. I am concerned we are becoming a nation of dedicated and die-hard agelastes, ready to defend our ideals with any and all and censure those who don’t conform.

If your ideal is any good, friend, it doesn’t need you to defend it…

This week’s MiltnMia Show:

Getting back at your Ex: The Posting of Revenge Porn, along with Akasha the Psychic Soul Healer

After Milt introduces the show, he mentions this week’s guest expert interview with Akasha, the Psychic Soul Healer, and her experiences taking the hallucinogenic drug therapy known as Ayahuasca, before opening today’s theme, the posting of Revenge Porn. Milt, “A rather disturbing email has come in, which parallels a trend I have been seeing a lot lately in the media, and that is, what people are calling the posting of revenge porn on social media.” He talks about the downsides of social media, and how it’s an act that only kids can be excused for doing so, “…but not mature adults, who should have some understanding of the consequences to doing such a thing, BUT, as I am seeing more and more, mature, so called adult people are not thinking out the consequences and are, instead, just reacting out of anger and posting whatever comes to mind, and with respect to revenge porn, I don’t think people realize that once it’s on the Internet, it is there for good!” He mentions how Mia and he are very careful about posting on the Internet, and his visits to revenge porn sites, “It strikes me as quite cowardly actually; instead of being adult about it and moving on with their lives, they cannot help but want to get back at the person who has just caused them pain and they choose a very nasty method of doing so.”

He reads an email from a woman who’s jealous husband, in anger at her flirting, posted revenge porn pics and won’t apologize or take them down and demands she get another job, and she wonders if she should forgive him and move on, or divorce him. Milt, “I feel for you, but should you resort to legal advice or call the police? No, because your husband is cruel and doesn’t respect you and won’t likely change his ways at his age, so my advice is, move on. How can you trust this guy after what he did? You can get hot sex anywhere, but what you really want is a partner who actually respects you, but this guy isn’t gonna change and yes, this is a reason for divorcing. Eventually you’ll find a guy who won’t treat you like a cheap slut, which is what he’s doing to you. Nobody should put up with that behavior.”

Ah, a little rain has returned to Northern California! How welcome it is, and how little it will do to mitigate this nasty drought. Still, it is wonderfully refreshing, so I think I’ll head outside in a few and burn a cigar in its honor.
