right, because calling something a corruption is a judgjent-free assessment. As with bizarre and loss-of-self-esteem...I was not passing judgments.
well, that us a different question than invoking evolution as have a plan.The question is do we strive for a finer reality or do we rut around in the bushes having sex all the time.
But 'finer reality' versus 'rutting in the bushes' are still loaded terms.
and more judgment.If we see ourselves as carnal animals then in the end all bets are off.
We are animals, carnal is pleasuranle, but we can also hold down a job, even if we give the butt plug control to someone else.
As animals, we can try to choose where to set the balance between pleasure and responsibility.
And if you're not trying to get customer service from someone who left the butt plug controller beside the kids' fidget spinner, what is it to you?
now, now, just because you find sex unseemly, that does not mean that those who are not in agreement have abandoned social norms entirely.Go back to tribalism and fighting for survival. What modern history shows us that civilization is a thin veneer and it does not tale much to break down. Social norms are part of social cohesion. Can our civilization survive with no or little social norms?
They just don't share yours.
Thirty years ago, it was pretty fucking unseemly to see a woman's bra straps. Now it is common, and even fashionable, with bras coming with multiple straps to match various shirts.
But despite my mother's opinion that only extroverted harlots exposed their bras, the women are no more likely to flash theor boobs than 30 years ago.... it us different, not t he end ofbthe world.
the same thijng thst happens every college year for the last 500 years.I think the conservatives do have a valid point. If it is all self gratification what happens?
Someone concentrates on self-gratification, his/her grades go to shit, they learn that there are limits, learn to balance their life, and move on.
Every goddamned year.
Same thing happens the first command after boot camp.
It's part of life. The technical term is 'growing up.'
feel free to show a causal link between casual sexual gratification and shooting a mall. At least some of the shooters are uncels, who blame all their problems on women NOT giving them easy sex.We are seeing social breakdown everyday. The rise in gun violence. It is all related to social norms.
