The Truth about sexuality
Greetings one or two people who may read this. I have a new project explaining human sexuality because I’m just so damn sick of it not being explained adequately or sensibly. So I have decided to make a start – again. But before I do that I thought you might like to know where I got up to last time…
So what would you like to know about human sexuality?
Probably more than you realize. There is of course the old puzzle that there seems to be such a variation in human sexuality, when there is such a simple evolutionary imperative of reproduction. A question that might easily be summed up as “how can there be gay people”. Of course this wouldn’t be a problem if you weren’t an evolutionist or a hard core genetic determinist. But I am, and if you are also then that could be a problem.
Then there’s other issues, usually around ‘consent’ where the reporting of having performed certain sexual acts will cause you to be imprisoned whereas others will not.
In Africa at the time of writing there have been laws against homosexuality even more extreme than what they used to have in western countries, such that an African minister said:
“Homosexuality is worse than Malignant cancer. It’s worse than HIV Aids. It’s worse than terrorism, which you are fighting left and right because it will just wipe out the whole of humanity.”
Actually as we will find out the opposite view is much closer to the truth. It is Hetrosexuality that has that status.
Now I just want to say that it is not my desire that I go into this whole morass, it just seems to be such a pressing issue of people getting it wrong over and over, and me having to experience that.
So why not give the correct account and then put it up for people to not read because there is no likely path to them discovering the information, but at least I can feel relieved that they could theoretically find out the correct information if they wanted to.
The only real problem for me is that giving the correct account verges onto information that it would be dangerous to reveal and this is about the political structure of structure of society. I even worry that people might extrapolate from the information that I do reveal, to a correct understanding of society and the environment. But what am I talking about? People never extrapolate a damn thing. That’s why we’re in this mess to begin with.
OK that’s enough bollixing around. Let’s get down to some explaining. What sort of society are we in? Sometimes I have said we are in “The Moral Society” but that’s a just a load of shit. People just pretend to be in a moral society, and it’s fun for me to attack that pretense
Really we’re in:
Sorry folks! I’ll have to leave it there for now. There was more, but it got serious pretty fast so I thought I would cut it short. Stay tuned for next time though!
