"crude, backwards and brutalistic view of the world?" more presumptuous insults from the pseudo-liberals really on the religious-right... can't believe the assaults upon me for expressing a viewpoint that asserts human sexual liberation!
ahem, the opposite. every 10 years since 1970 there's been this group has done videotaped 1-week live-in that includes in-depth interviews of all living in the household. a key focus has always been how much displayed affection, love there is in the average american household. guess what; wanna talk brutality? shows of affection have nearly disappeared here. consequently, as this lack of birthright loving nurture increases, so does youthful & all others frustration, violence, wars, torture and the recruiters find em easier & easier prey.
as i've written til my fingers ache, my 1st granting of ENTIRELY CONSCIOUS CONSENT TO HAVE SEX WAS WHEN I WAS ALMOST 12 AND HE WAS MY CRUSH OF 15. now he'd be put away & have his life ruined for that afternoon in 1966 and i'd likely be hauled off for 'professional help' in some psych-pharma hell! affectioinate sex is plainly that; rape is plainly that.
freud didn't hit the bull's eye when wrote "when sex is suppressed the result is civilization.' no, the opposite. when sex is suppressed (think moses...), love & affection also suffer and the result is that CIVILIZATION BECOMES IMPOSSIBLE AND IS REPLACED BY EVIL EMPIRES OF OPPRESSION AND INCREASINGLY DEALY WARS, dur.
the native world as seen through the pens of the early, pre-colonization native world showed naked, loving people who had open nudity, sex, communal shamanic-animist rituals of orgiastic sorts worldwide, with, of course, exceptions proved the rule. captain cook was indeed eaten by cannibals but he stated that having met many cultures in the pacific, "they are mostly so gentle they flee from even the violence of our european tongues!"
and early studies, of pacific, for example by marchand-marquesas or the later margaret mead, showed upwards of 1500 sexual events by adulthood... compared with just a dozen at age 21 in the US, 20 if not in college. women got it better what with sexual peak 14-28; boys is over by 18... never be that great again and all they got was the love of their own hands! here in new york the insane 'age of consent' is now 18 and kids can & do go to jail for defying this anti-nature, anti-sex laws! no frigging wonder teen suicide has soared 7x since 1950... and still largely a gay problem. most typical suicide note? "can't get any love."
more rage directed at such as michael jackson, none of whose boys turned on him even when money, DA, parents raged at them to, ever testified against him.... while a million iraqi children died w/no such protest in gulfwar, 12-year embargo, iraq war. the ever-more brutal west shouts 'yahooooo, bomb's away on the innocents!'
the intent in suppressing youth's sex or the mingling of the ages has never had anything to do with making life better for anyone but a shriveled up, vile & contemptuous evil religion's and empires dictatorship over the soul, heart, groin.
