"Sex had no problem with society."

Jeremiah Cornelius (137) writes | about a year and a half ago

Government 10

"It was society that had a problem with sex, as legislators and churchmen craved the ability to bring it under their control. It is perhaps odd that gay people should want to associate themselves with so overt a symbol of that control."

I have always insisted that the motive to allow gays and women in the military is a regressive impulse, not a progressive cause, whereas a progressive cause is to remove the need for a military.

It's a diversion of efforts into false progress, with no impact on the course of power away from the people. :-)

There seems an increase in the number of people who grasp that, but it's far from clear whether it's too little, too late.

When you notice that almost all non-procreative sexual behavior has no survival-of-the-fitest value whatsoever (and in most cases, is just a waste of calories, but in some cases, can actually kill you).

So can a bullet. Is that what you prefer?

I'd prefer to avoid risky behavior with both sex AND the bullet. I don't play Russian Roulette for the same reason I'm not promiscuous.

That's all fine. But nobody has a right to punish those who are. Some things should be kept personal.

But it should be pointed out that they WILL be punished- just not by another human being. And not in any afterlife either. Such risky behavior contains its own punishment, if not physical then certainly emotional. There is no escaping the fact that sex is indeed addictive behavior- and at the end of any given sexual relationship, comes the neurological chemical withdrawal.

If the sex was procreative- well, that withdrawal is lessened considerably by the existence of the resulting offspring and the emotion that comes from that addition to the relationship.

Then of course there is the physical side of such risky behavior. STDs are the most prominent, but most types of non-procreative sex have a host of other health issues associated with them.

You can't escape punishment merely by the government not punishing you. Punishment *always* comes for risky behavior. Just as if you play Russian Roulette long enough, you will lose and end up with a bullet in the brainpan.

Then we shall let nature punish them. No man has a right to inflict punishment on another for this. It is a personal matter.
