"Ride, Sally, Ride" (or Sex Rules): A Masterwork by Doug Wilson

@Marmion, I live in a blue town, but there’s a goddamn full-size Confederate flag hanging on a full-size flagpole in the front yard of a house a couple of streets away from me.

“Thelma…hadn’t told Isadora (yet) that her husband, Mia, was the acquisitions editor for the biggest publisher in Colorado.” Notice the “her husband, Mia.” Dougie wants you to be HORRIFIED by this little tidbit.

Hane, is it any clearer in the book itself what’s meant here? Is Mia a man with a feminine-seeming name? Or a woman who considers herself a husband? Or “both/and” rather than one gender? Just not sure exactly what Doug wants us to clutch pearls at.

Ace, for his part, was more than happy to have her present in the room, in that she was anything but an eyesore

This is, according to Hane, a direct quote from the book. I thought maybe Ace was glad to have her be part of the trial prep because he trusted her, because she’d have good ideas, because she’s a good friend. But no: it’s because she’s hot. Good grief.

She recounts the sad tale of how and why she left Stephanie’s father: “I was simply angry, bitter, frustrated, resentful, and more angry. I was simply doing *anything* I could think of that would hurt him

This is Stephanie’s mom’s account of leaving Stephanie’s blowhard dad. Sounds like a solid plan! It certainly reflects a reasonable reaction towards any Doug Wilson-type figure! Shame she seems to be sorry for it.

Evil Overweight Butch Lesbian had been Victoria’s therapist (of course)

Ugh, so now therapists can’t be trusted either. Doug must live in such constant fear: women, therapists, shelter volunteers, all manipulators and liars!! (And probably ugly and probably lesbians.)

Stephanie and her father had learned that Steven Sasani had been married before, in Arkansas, and was still legally married to one Patricia Sasani, age 48. Stephanie can find no trace of Patricia on line, but decides that Patricia may not still be in Arkansas. So she waits for Steven to leave his house and goes over to take a look around.

Peering into a basement window, she sees a woman who signals her for help. Could it be the very same Patricia?  Of course it is!

WTF???? They learn the sex-bot user actually used to be married, so instead of, like, looking up the address or phone number of where she lives now, their first assumption is that she’s being held prisoner in his basement? And they’re RIGHT????

Trish wants to go directly to the cops, but Jon wants to spring her on the prosecution as a surprise witness,

And then instead of doing what’s good for the victim they decide to use her as a gotcha witness at the trial?????????? WTAF???

Why would that be a consideration?  How would it benefit Ace, the only Important character? 

Also not sure that "the person I stole from and destroyed the property of is a terrible human being" is actually pertinent to the defence in any way. I mean "I stole his car and trashed it, but he's a drug dealer" - so what? You stole the car.  This lawyer sucks.

Dougie constantly tosses in descriptions of the filthy, decaying infrastructure of the roads, public buildings, and parking lots of dystopian Colorado. I guess he is implying that every square inch of the red states is a pristine paradise by comparison. Also, Bad Guys always drive things like Japanese and/or energy-efficient cars.

This is just such a random thing to me, that part of the issue this damned story has is with road infrastructure. lol

This Fundie jackass likely thinks “intersectionality” has to do with Interstate maintenance or some shit.

Oh good, 2020 was only missing a thread title combining 'Doug Wilson' and 'sex'.  Now it's complete.  *vomit*

Oh I don’t think it’s random at all. He seems to genuinely believe (or at least be preaching) that Christianity is not just the correct religion, but in fact the only correct societal underpinning in literally ALL ways. EVERYTHING would be solved if we were all conservative Christians of his very specific type. Yes, even the highways! And lacking Christianity leads to ruin. Not just moral ruin; literal, physical ruin.

Far from random, I think this is foundational to their belief system.

It’s very Prosperity Gospel.

He's never been to Dubai or Singapore or any of the other non-Christian places with decent infrastructure, has he.  Or even the Wrong Type Of Christian places with decent infrastructure, e.g. most of western Europe. Or the nominally Wrong Type Of Christian But Kind Of Secular places like Australia, NZ and Canada...

I was thinking about this book and I'll be honest with you - the kernel idea is actually an interesting one.  A book regarding when destroying AI would be considered murder would be something that would interest me.  Even better, a book regarding AI as a sex robot paralleled with human prostitutes doing sex work could be amazing.  But it would take a far better writer to pull it off.

Ronny is a malevolent scumbag. Other PACE characters make the occasional mistake (like choosing to read a book instead of pray), but Ronny's every action is either stupid or simply unprovoked, intentional evil. Ronny is a thief....

He mocks a small child for crying....

Later, Ronny crashes his motorcycle, paralyzing one of the other characters in the accident. Following this, Ronny mocks the other character for needing a wheelchair. 

I remember that!

I can’t explain why, but the idea that this book is “Blade Runner for Fundies” will NOT leave my brain.

I wish we could be actually reading that book.  Or maybe watching 'Westworld for Fundies' :P

Well actually I think Westworld with Fundies would be better.  "Have you questioned the nature of your reality?"

 

Anyhow I think the real robots in this story are DW's internal stereotypes of liberals.  He seems to think there's real people who have the actual continual exclusive thought process "beep boop, abortion and porn for everyone, bzzzzzz must exterminate marriage and the church, boop beep believe all women unconditionally" etc.
