Why can't we get sex right.
I am so sick of sex scandals in this country. I don't know if they are as prevalent in other countries but I would have to guess no - only because the rest of the world is adults, we are children.
I am not condoning some of the twisted crap that goes on, I am just saying that we are so repressed in this country that we are fascinated by those who fall. And the repressive, infantile attitude contributes in some part to the perverts that roam amongst us.
The very definition of pervert is open to discussion. In this country, according to religious zealots and republicans, any sex involving non married people, and same sex people, and any sex that is not performed in the missionary position, is deeply repulsive, unnatural, offensive to God and punishable by death.
Pick up a copy of the Kama Sutra for Christ sake, experiment and have some fun. Sex is not dirty.
Celebrity sex scandals, political sex scandals, sex scandals in sports, in church, in the library, in the bathroom, in a Smart car. What the hell is our problem?
Yeah sex is great sport and a hell of a lot more fun than anything else you can do, except maybe watching a good football game, but we are supposed to be evolved beings, organisms who can control our impulses through thought.
Aye there's the rub. We are not evolved, we don't think, we don't control anything. We are all so lost that we're looking for any escape, any diversion to help us ignore our lives and the inexorable march to oblivion.
Back to other countries. There are plenty of sex scandals to go around. You can't even factor middle eastern countries into the equation because their religions are so repressive and regressive that it results in uncontrollable sexual eruptions. Same for Holy Mother the Church.
But infidelity, orgies, same sex, Don Juan inclinations are considered more natural in cultured, educated countries. Some of it may be immoral by strict definition, but mankinds' natural impulses are recognized as such and people don't lose their minds in feigned horror as readily as we Americans do.
Sandusky is another thing entirely. He represents the faction of offenders who are indefensible, who prey on the weak, force their personal perversions on those who are not part of the club. And there are plenty of them out there.
Every time I saw him walking into or out of the court house with that smug, confident look on his face, and his goddamn file folders under his arm, I wanted to knock his teeth out through my TV.
I am praying to Jesus that he is sentenced to 413 years and that he is placed in the general population at the ADX Florence facility in Colorado. This facility houses the prisoners who are deemed the most dangerous and in need of the tightest control of all the prisoners within the United States Federal Prison System.
I don't understand the pathology of this type of twisted sexual inclination or any sexual deviation that involves non consensual sex or violence or death.
I only understand that sex is a powerful urge and motivator that we weak willed humans cannot apparently control. There are the titillating transgressions that entertain us on the news, and there are monsters like Sandusky who are so twisted by the power of sex they use it as a weapon and then parade around as if their tastes are acceptable.
The sexual urge is the single most powerful and confusing attribute of humanity.
We'd be better off with asexual reproductive capabilities. We could continue the species, no fuss, no muss, no complications, and go on to enjoy a good football game.
