Quote# 36161

[The craziest explanation for why people are gay ever]

Romance and eroticism (sexuality) are mutually exclusive (though not alternatives).

A penis is made for a vagina, and the function of sexual attraction is for propagation--the fact that it gives pleasure is a fringe benefit: an enticement, as it were, to "be fruitful and multiply", not meant to be pursued in and of itself.

This is an obvious Truth, like the existence of God; but, like Theism, God has given us the means to deny it by various sophistic justifications; and homosexuality is merely a strong desire for mutual masturbation.

How about (heterosexual) Teabagging and Bagpiping?

Er... what does it matter to us that the Israelites were ordered to be fruitful and multiply?

His ass must sting, for how far up he reached.

If that were true then eating should be only for survival. The fact that food taste good is only a fringe benefit. You should not pursue good tasting food by that standard.

"This is an obvious Truth, like the existence of God...."

Way to refute your own argument there, champ.

How much mental and semantic masturbation have you made to reach such tangled conclusion?. If it were the case, why do sterile people don't have their sexual drive eliminated?

Some hetero couples like anal. What's your problem?

3/12/2008 3:04:52 PM


Yes, just like sleep is just needed for survival, you shouldn't bother getting a comfortable bed. The floor shall sufice.

Straight people can participate in mutual masturbation, too. Idiot.

"the fact that it gives pleasure is a fringe benefit: an enticement, as it were, to "be fruitful and multiply", not meant to be pursued in and of itself. "

You managed to disprove your point and completely miss it at the same time.

Mutual masturbation is not limited to homosexuals. And don't knock it until you've tried it.

I'm a guy. Which means I can rub against my couch and masturbate that way.

Yet I have never felt any attraction towards my couch nor been on a date with any furniture not ever been in or wanted to be in a serious relationship with a couch.

If I wanted to just masturbate, I hardly need ot be gay to do that. in fact, it wouldn't be worth the social prejudice. i could masterbate with awoman just as easily.

In fact, if it was just about masturbation, I wouldn't involve anyone else. People are such messy creatures. Dating the same gender is no less drama then hetero dating. Way too much work just to get off. So obviously that is not why I am attracted to other men.

I want to say Poverello78 shows the problem of arguing from ignorance except how could this guy be THIS ignorant?

Speak for yourself. I try to mix the two as much as possible.

1.) Romance and eroticism are NOT mutually exclusive. Romantic eroticism is an awesome thing.

2.) A penis was "made" for urinating and depositing semen. It fits nicely into several places. If you god wanted it to be used exclusively for the vagina, why didn't he make the penis shaped to fit ONLY into the vagina?

3.) What a sadistic god you must worship. "Hey, I have a great idea, let make something that feels so good that everyone will want to do it, but then tell them that they are limited in how/when they can do it. That'll really drive them nuts."

4.) Maybe you should try a little solo masturbation before you go knocking mutual masturbation. Maybe it will help you forget your fairy tale god.

So why do most women have orgasms through clitoral stimulation, which doesn't really happen in your puritan missionary sex position?

And masturbation has nothing to do with sexual orientation.

You live a sad, uptight little life, don't you Poverello?

Then why did god, when he created me, design my hands to rest so close to my hooha? Aren't, then, the penis and vagina designed for the hands?

I think you're failed to consider all the relevant background information.

Soooo, God is a penis?

3/12/2008 6:26:12 PM


You're a dumbass. If this were true, homosexuality would only be found in humans. But guess what? ANIMALS DO IT, TOO!!

Point number one: Romance and sexuality are only mutually exclusive if you believe sex to be unromantic or believe romance to be impratical. Otherwise, the two work to together just fine.
Point two: If it weren't for the "fringe benefit" of pleasure, there most likely would be no procreation, because there would be zero biological incentive for having sex. As for sexual attraction...yes, it is meant to assure propagation...so, when you have no sexual attraction to anyone (or just no attraction for the correct targets), does that mean that you are an inherently worse human being for that?
Point three: There is no such thing as an obvious truth. If you think it is obvious, you are taking something for granted, and perhaps ignoring that there is no rational grounds for holding such a thing as true.
Point four: homosexuality is a sexual attraction to the same sex. If you have something wrong with sexual activity being pursued sheerly for pleasure, you damn well better be conceiving a child everytime you spill your seed, or your God will make mince-meat out of you for the hypocrisy.

Penises aren't really made for vaginas, or they would be built to include automatic clitoral stimulation. Some men, of course, can be made for vaginas. ;) I know my way around them.
