I've been online posting my thoughts for a long time in one fashion on another, but I feel differently. I still speak up, but the consequences I fear are too far reaching then just disagreements. There is no 'conversation' anymore, there is no exchange of ideas or finding common ground. It is a seek-and-destroy mission, blindly going after anyone who questions authority.
Conversation on Facebook...
"Wonders if DaVinci's "The Copulation" would be too hetero normative since it depicts penal/vagina intercourse in all of its mystery at the time. Or how research actually do MRIs of male/female in the act to study the evolutionary design of the penis which in our species very unique. I don't believe in criminalizing anal sex, but the act defies basic function of the human organ(both digestive and reproductive) I've been told in health education that anal sex is normal, that was over 20 years ago. I reject that premise. It isn't normal. It goes against the design and function on the body and health-wise creates an easy transmission for viruses."The Other Person:
"If you want to live in an anal-sex free wonderland where everyone conforms to stereotype and asshats like Alan are given over to demonstrably idiotic ravings, well, welcome to Rob's GOP!" "Oh, very grateful that you aren't interested in criminalizing what two consenting adults do with thier bodies. Very libertarian of you.Seriously, though, it's much better than Rob's unmarried friends who devote their lives to telling us married folks what marriage is all about and need THEIR ideas of what's normal to be state policy.As for what a duck hunter finds "sinful," could anything be less relevant?"The other person is a Christian, on his Town's Democratic Commitee, and a student in law school. This is how he engaged with me in a conversation. God, help us.
Consider Sen. Barack Obama's proposed bill on Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood back in 07. Or Professor Elizabeth Warren's 'Two Income Trap' in 2004, a whole book in regards to women balancing the economics of career and children. Or PBS Frontline episode in 2002 about the decline of marriage and the devastating effects on children. Or in Howard Law School's Journal back in 2006,Me:
I cited liberal support for opposite sex marriage, I do not know what has happened to the Democrats in the past 5 years. All you have done was rant like an absolute lunatic using profanities. The Democrat Party is nothing but fascism now, they have control over their members with strings like marionettes. I know what the REAL Barack Obama once believed and I know what the REAL Elizabeth Warren once believed as well. These people are just zombies of their former selves.
