Sk8tycat, your comment about killing pets who mount other pets of the same sex reminded me of something else even stranger. I'm listening to Mary Roach's book "Bonk" which is about the biology and sociology of sex. It's amazing to learn what goes on studying animal sexuality. Given that the researches manipulate animal genitalia, it sounds a lot like bestiality.
Then there's artificial semination. Holy Jesus! To obtain semen, for some animals the technician masturbates the male animal. Sometimes they do it with their hand, for other animals they have a device. Then, for some species the female has to be stimulated - not just inseminated - in order for the semen to be taken into the uterus.
So, most of our animal agriculture seems to be an effect of bestiality. Who knew?
That probably isn't true in muslim countries. They are not as technologically advanced. How nice for them.
Ruth thanks for the pic. That's really funny!
I want to ask a True Believer to define "sin" without mentioning any "gods." They can't do it.
I agree with your "best of times/worst of times" comment, Sentient Biped.
( I like the expression of the guy on the left)
Some powerful words, speaking out against the Sultan of Brunei, his imposition of murderous laws, and his ownership of 2 California hotels.
In al three Abrahamic religions, women are either property of some man (walking wombs) , or they are temptresses who lead men astray. In other words, apparently Middle Eastern and African men have no control over themselves, nor are they ever taught that they can control themselves.
You'd think that after 3,000 years or more of evidence to the contrary that they would have learned something. For one thing that "eliminating" LGBT people does not stop them from being born; every LGBT person on earth was/is born to and raised by str8 parents. Just the same as one blond parent + one dark-haired parent can produce a redhead....
Do these fanatics also kill pets caught mounting other pets of the same sex? It happens all the time.
Continuing the comment about Brunei, "A number of UN studies have revealed that women are more likely to be sentenced to death by stoning, due to deeply entrenched discrimination and stereotyping against them"
As in A Tale of Two Cities, these are the best of times, these are the worst of times, for LGBT people. As for the best of times, progress in many states and countries is astounding. As for the worst of times, there's the Middle East, Africa, and now the darkness takes its hold on Brunei, where sharia law includes stoning of "sex criminals" including LGBT people. " As per its provisions, sexual offenses such as rape, adultery and sodomy will be considered punishable acts for Muslims. Consensual sex between homosexuals will also be criminalized, with death by stoning the prescribed punishment."
Good point, sk8eycat.
On another note.
I have read that people who were raised to believe that sex is "sinful" and/or "dirty" have a tendency to obsess about it...their own sex lives and everyone else's. Jimmy Swaggart was a prime example.
Also, when they read or hear a word like "homosexuality," all they focus on are the three letters in the middle:s-e-x. They think it's only about sex, not attraction, affection, love, building a life with someone.
That's the way they look at heterosexuality, too...that it only has to do with the physical act, because that's the way THEY compartmentalize it in their own minds. If they have minds.
