About Joe Kort, Ph.D. – The Good Men Project

Joe Kort, Ph.D. | HuffPost

Joe Kort – Wikipedia

To Joe Kort, there’s the tricky matter of identity versus behavior. Joe Kort, a Michigan-based sex therapist whose next book is about straight-identified men who are married but who also have sex with men, says that “many never tell anyone about their bisexual experiences, for fear of losing relationships or having their reputation hurt. Consequently, they’re an invisible group of men. We know very little about them.” – Dr. Joe Kort

To Joe Kort, “Men like a good quest; unfortunately, these days, there are so few. But romance earns that distinction. Allow us to court you; make us deserve your desire. Dr. Kort makes an additional point: “Emotional intimacy is about closeness, but sustaining sexual desire demands a certain amount of distance.” How do couples strike this tricky balance? By allowing each partner to have what he calls “separate sexuality”: a sexual life that doesn’t include, but doesn’t betray, the other.” – Dr. Joe Kort

I was lucky enough, to see his advertisement on a new friend linked in the post and thought how cool, I want to support people knowing about this book. I deeply value the care of others and the support for their flourishing. I value others as fellow beings of dignity. I told Joe Kort, PhD, LMSW (View Joe’s profile) from the University of Michigan Sexual Health Certificate Program, Teaching Faculty.

I Told him, that “I appreciate what you do.” Which he graciously said, That’s so nice thank you. To which, I shared my life message, which I say all the time, for myself, as much as others; for it gives me hope, “We rise by helping each other.”

Here is why my name is: “Damien Marie AtHope”

I legally changed my first before I was an atheist. Then I legally changed my f middle, and last name after I was an atheist.

I chose the first name Damien because it means one who tames, protects or subdues. Also, I have family from Hawaii and there was a priest Father Damien who had originally had the first name jozef translated in English as Joseph but changed it just like me. Father Damien or Saint Damien of Molokai (1840 – 1889), defied the Catholic church and spent his life caring for the ones people stopped caring for as they were doomed to die, he never stopped seeing them as people of value and I too wish to never stop seeing the value in people or of human life. Although I am not saying he was a saint he still pushed religion and I do realize we should always question believed historic accounts of people like Damien as they can involve biases of Europeans and Americans (religion bias, ethnocentrism, racism, and colonialism and imperialism), as such is “greatness” may be inflated as well as discount the real experiences or roles of the native residents on Molokaʻi. However, Mahatma Gandhi, the important political leader of India, said that Father Damien’s work had inspired his own social campaigns in India and Father Damien Day is celebrated statewide in Hawaii on April 15.

I chose Marie to honor my gender diversity, is that I am mildly intersexed and genderqueer in my mental gender persuasion and I outwardly present as male. This gender difference is not to be confused as in my sexuality I am heterosexual or with my gender actually termed gynosexual meaning I am only sexually into women (cis women) and thus not bisexual or gay. Another reason I chose Marie is my wife’s middle name is Marie so we are even more connected by our middle names.

I chose AtHope to mean “At” “Hope” a state of being I live in and I wish for others. Another reason I chose AtHope is I didn’t want my wife to have to give up her last name just to take my original last name as is traditional as we are not traditional. so instead we came up with AtHope as a last name put together, to honor our shared equal status union.

I think the secret of who I am is I am still becoming who I am, which is the ever thoughtful and caring humanistic me.

  • Here is a blog on Utilizing Dignity (Link) is one I am proud of.

  • Here is a blog Everyone Loves Ethics (Link) that is another blog I vary proud of. If you read even some of them you will see I really think originally and positive.

And, while I have hundreds of blogs on several topics with my main focus as atheism and its relation to other ideas. I care a lot about kindness and human flourishing as the main goal in my efforts.

My thoughts on psychology? (I have a BA in psychology and 7 classes in my masters)
I would say that my thoughts on psychology are something similar to REBT, Narrative therapy, Gestalt, Group Therapy, Person-centered therapy and Positive Psychology. I am not saying I use any defined psychology just that I use a few similar styles, such as, Gestalt (an organized whole that is perceived as more than the sum of its parts, Gestalt psychology is an attempt to understand the laws behind the ability to acquire and maintain meaningful perceptions in an apparently chaotic world. The central principle of gestalt psychology is that the mind forms a global whole with self-organizing tendencies) it’s not that I am saying I believe in all the thinking in Gestalt psychology nor do I try to use Gestalt. If I was to counsel, I would use Axiology, as it is in all I do, because it is my main first style or universal thinking anyway. The concept of gestalt was first introduced in philosophy and psychology in 1890 by Christian von Ehrenfels (a member of the School of Brentano). The idea of gestalt has its roots in theories by David HumeJohann Wolfgang von GoetheImmanuel KantDavid Hartley, and Ernst Mach.

I think back on my life and it’s not the times I was the most selfish but the times I was kind, that brighten my life. May I now make an even stronger effort to do so in all I do, as it’s so valuable to an enriched wellbeing in life. I am a axiological atheist, antitheist, and anti-religionist as well as a secularist and a humanist.

Axiological Atheist, which roughly can be understood as a value theory or value science Atheist. Axiological to Atheist is meant to denote an atheistic rejection of the existence of gods or supreme beings in favor of a “higher absolute,” such as humanity, formal axiology, or naturalistic ethical principles. Axiological Atheism can be thought to involve ethical/value theory reasoned and moral argument driven atheism, anti-theism, anti-religionism, ignosticism, apatheism, secularism and humanism.

Axiological reasoning as a form of atheism mindset favors humanity and care values permitting individuals to resolve moral problems without resorting to gODs or religions. One value of formal axiology and naturalistic ethical principles being humanistic is mutual care and responsibility.

In the absence of a supernatural caretaker, we know that the responsibility for improving this world rests where it always has – with the people who live, think, feel, and act in that world. I like talking to intelligent caring people, I wish to hear the great things they have to offer, or even enhance my thoughts and my style of philosophy, which as an axiologist (value theorist) “Axiological Atheism, is Intellectualism” and a methodological rationalist “My Methodological Rationalism: investigate (ontology), expose (epistemology) and judge (axiology)” as well as hear from you on your thoughts on philosophy. I am not intending this to be anything but intelligent, thoughtful and informative, and hopefully inspiring to others. I enjoy intelligent conversations, expressed with care and creativity. I am an Axiological Atheist, with a Rationalist Persuasion, who Supports Anarcho-Humanism Here is the last interview I did: “Damien Marie AtHope’s Conversation with Professor of Philosophy William Ferraiolo”


Damien, do you think that religious and supernatural belief,
be some kind of a mental disorder or relate to something like that?
Yes, I think many religionists and believers in supernatural beliefs, could be and possibly are suffering from a type of “induced delusional disorder” also known as shared psychotic disorder or (Folie à deux, Link). It is considered a psychiatric syndrome in which symptoms of a delusional belief and hallucinations are transmitted from one individual to another. The same syndrome shared by more than two people may be called folie à trois, folie à quatre, folie en famille or even folie à plusieurs (“madness of many”). You may think is I am right then why are not tones of people diagnosed with this? Well, that is more about political correctness than the truth of a “disorder-criteria” being met because they allow dilutions to be seen as normal if they are accepted as crazy as that is.
The current Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, states that a person cannot be diagnosed as being delusional if the belief in question is one “ordinarily accepted by other members of the person’s culture or subculture” (see entry for delusion). It is not clear at what point a belief considered to be delusional escapes from the folie à… diagnostic category and becomes legitimate because of the number of people holding it. When a large number of people may come to believe obviously false and potentially distressing things based purely on hearsay, these beliefs are not considered to be clinical delusions by the psychiatric profession and are labeled instead as mass hysteria. 
Ethics of Belief: “a prudent thinker”
As a prudent thinker, one is rational to hold to a methodology in their thinking.
This belief standard holds to the ethics of belief: analyzed by axiology, ontology, and epistemology methodologies to understand, address, accept, or reject propositions is both holding to rational as well as empirical soundness and this standard reminds us to be careful to not just believe anything upon insufficient evidence.
So I ask, do you care about the value of your beliefs if they do not meet their presumptive value, or reach the proof of their propositions compared to the standards in the ethics of belief.
Have you not in your life, realized that a belief you once held as true, was completely false. Would you be intellectually honest enough to want to know if your belief was completely false, and once knowing, realize it lacks warrant for belief-retention, as well as rationally compels belief-relinquishment.
Well, to me as a prudent thinker the belief in god(s) is an incorrect belief and ineffective theory, paramount to wishful thinking and thus should be held as completely false.

A truly wise person seeks knowledge and a knowledgeable person realizes to be wise one must acknowledge how little they know thus always seek knowledge.

 Kindness is often an act of radical humanity, in a world so proud of unkindness.

I do not hate simply because I challenge and expose myths or lies any more than others being thought of as loving simply because of the protection and hiding from challenge their favored myths or lies.

The truth is best championed in the sunlight of challenge.

An archaeologist once said to me “Damien religion and culture are very different”

My response, So are you saying that was always that way, such as would you say Native Americans’ cultures are separate from their religions? And do you think it always was the way you believe?

I had said that religion was a cultural product. That is still how I see it and there are other archaeologists that think close to me as well. Gods too are the myths of cultures that did not understand science or the world around them, seeing magic/supernatural everywhere.

I personally think there is a goddess and not enough evidence to support a male god at Çatalhöyük but if there was both a male and female god and goddess then I know the kind of gods they were like Proto-Indo-European mythology.

The “Atheist-Humanist-Leftist Revolutionaries”

Cory Johnston ☭ Ⓐ Atheist Leftist @Skepticallefty & I (Damien Marie AtHope) @AthopeMarie (my YouTube & related blog) are working jointly in atheist, antitheist, antireligionist, antifascist, anarchist, socialist, and humanist endeavors in our videos together, generally, every other Saturday.

Why Does Power Bring Responsibility?

Think, how often is it the powerless that start wars, oppress others, or commit genocide? So, I guess the question is to us all, to ask, how can power not carry responsibility in a humanity concept? I know I see the deep ethical responsibility that if there is power their must be a humanistic responsibility of ethical and empathic stewardship of that power. Will I be brave enough to be kind? Will I possess enough courage to be compassionate? Will my valor reach its height of empathy? I as everyone, earns our justified respect by our actions, that are good, ethical, just, protecting, and kind. Do I have enough self-respect to put my love for humanity’s flushing, over being brought down by some of its bad actors? May we all be the ones doing good actions in the world, to help human flourishing.

I create the world I want to live in, striving for flourishing. Which is not a place but a positive potential involvement and promotion; a life of humanist goal precision. To master oneself, also means mastering positive prosocial behaviors needed for human flourishing. I may have lost a god myth as an atheist, but I am happy to tell you, my friend, it is exactly because of that, leaving the mental terrorizer, god belief, that I truly regained my connected ethical as well as kind humanity.

Cory and I will talk about prehistory and theism, addressing the relevance to atheism, anarchism, and socialism.

At the same time as the rise of the male god, 7,000 years ago, there was also the very time there was the rise of violence, war, and clans to kingdoms, then empires, then states. It is all connected back to 7,000 years ago, and it moved across the world.

Damien Marie AtHope (“At Hope”) Axiological Atheist, Anti-theist, Anti-religionist, Secular Humanist. Rationalist, Writer, Artist, Poet, Philosopher, Advocate, Activist, Psychology, and Armchair Archaeology/Anthropology/Historian.

Damien is interested in: Freedom, Liberty, Justice, Equality, Ethics, Humanism, Science, Atheism, Antiteism, Antireligionism, Ignosticism, Left-Libertarianism, Anarchism, Socialism, Mutualism, Axiology, Metaphysics, LGBTQI, Philosophy, Advocacy, Activism, Mental Health, Psychology, Archaeology, Social Work, Sexual Rights, Marriage Rights, Woman’s Rights, Gender Rights, Child Rights, Secular Rights, Race Equality, Ageism/Disability Equality, Etc. And a far-leftist, “Anarcho-Humanist.”

I am not a good fit in the atheist movement that is mostly pro-capitalist, I am anti-capitalist. Mostly pro-skeptic, I am a rationalist not valuing skepticism. Mostly pro-agnostic, I am anti-agnostic. Mostly limited to anti-Abrahamic religions, I am an anti-religionist. 

To me, the “male god” seems to have either emerged or become prominent around 7,000 years ago, whereas the now favored monotheism “male god” is more like 4,000 years ago or so. To me, the “female goddess” seems to have either emerged or become prominent around 11,000-10,000 years ago or so, losing the majority of its once prominence around 2,000 years ago due largely to the now favored monotheism “male god” that grow in prominence after 4,000 years ago or so. 

My Thought on the Evolution of Gods?

Animal protector deities from old totems/spirit animal beliefs come first to me, 13,000/12,000 years ago, then women as deities 11,000/10,000 years ago, then male gods around 7,000/8,000 years ago. Moralistic gods around 5,000/4,000 years ago, and monotheistic gods around 4,000/3,000 years ago. 

“Animism” is needed to begin supernatural thinking.
“Totemism” is needed for supernatural thinking connecting human actions & related to clan/tribe.
“Shamanism” is needed for supernatural thinking to be controllable/changeable by special persons.
Together = Gods/paganism
