“Stripping comes to seem like a cool accessory — something with which to burnish your resume and make yourself look more interesting than the average MBA-seeker”, writes Kat Rosenfield at Unherd, and she’s right in that such a life episode has ceased to be career-destroying.
What does that mean? Is it a symptom of a dekay, or are we moving toward a world where it will be normal for Mom to have performed stripteases when she was young, and where it won’t interfere with parenting and family life? The problem is that we can’t tell today. Especially with such a complicated issue, which the same author writes about in another article. “We pity them. We envy them. We want to help them and also just want them, sometimes at the same time. Against a modern-day backdrop of shifting sexual mores, strippers occupy the dual archetype of cautionary tale and aspirational figure, fallen woman and girlboss. They are the living embodiment of feminist agency, but also agents of the patriarchy. That the strippers themselves tend to disagree on all of the aforementioned points makes things even more complicated.”

That’s why I devoted a fair amount of space in Breached Enclosure Two (which is available only in Czech) to precisely how to distinguish between natural change (which is often introduced through trial and error) and decay. With that said, there are many things we cannot decide today. But in any case, we need a stable civilizational framework so that these new things and new practices can gradually settle in and take on an acceptable form. Today, when LGBT freaks systematically seek to destroy the entire existing world, they are at the same time making sure that nothing positive can ever come of their “innovations”.
