Сегодня Радоница. Enjoy the feast.
My publishing platform records “referrers” so that I can see which pages link to mine or which search terms people use to find my site. Thus, I see that on (Orthodox) Holy Friday, someone performed a Google search with the terms “coming of age boy movies with nude frontals.” The linked page that welcomed the pederastic visitor was “Boy Movies,” which I posted in honor of my nephew’s fourteenth birthday. Whenever I find such referrals, I search for the terms in the post. There is no “nude,” but Google has a clever system. I wrote of Lord of the Flies:
I’ll include the two film adaptations of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies by Peter Brook and Harry Hook because boyhood is not a romanticized Norman Rockwell experience. Men are largely wicked, and children are even more irrational and appetite-driven than men. They may not be as depraved as human beings who have, with more time, sunk ever deeper into vicious mire, but their innocence has more to do with the lack of power and opportunity than with inherent virtue. Both films depict this disturbing trait in mankind with their “boy as naked man” idea wherein human beings, when stripped of tradition, culture, law, and the inherited rules of society, act like beasts. I appreciate the full frontal attack on Rousseauian stupidity.
I wonder if the Googler was disappointed or enlightened.
Most perverted referrals link to one of the Marian posts in my Music domain. My guess is that “Virgin” fits the search engine’s goal.
I did an I.P. search and found that my visitor was not from San Fran’s Castro District but from Grand Prairie, Texas. Texas! I looked up the town near Dallas and found that its percentage of whites has decreased to half of what it was in the previous census—from 62% in A.D. 2000 to 29% in A.D. 2010. Maybe, hebephilia and online porn are not good recipes for population sustainability.
