It’s the commentary to slide 5 that really speaks to me.
People are going to have sex.
Yep. They are. You and me, baby, ain’t nothing but mammals, and mammals have sex, and not just in the holy sight of God in order to go forth and multiply.
I am honestly sorry if you’re sitting there thinking “well she should just keep her legs closed” or “abstinence is 100% effective!”* but you are simply denying reality. And it would be really swish if everyone just acted the way you think they should act and if everyone just made the right choices and if we just all denied our base and bestial natures.**
But life is not perfect and humans are far from perfect – well, your idea of “perfect” – and that’s not even getting into how “acting morally” and “fucking like monkeys” are not mutually exclusive concepts.
To quote the most excellent Boganette:
Sex isn’t bad Bob. And the kids are alright.
Enough of me. Go read Julie’s presentation, because it’s damn good.
*I would say “if we ignore rape”, but of course that’s the entire point of that little jingle. Only Bad Girls get raped, right?
**But that’s probably a whole other rant to have on how half of society’s issues are grounded in our denial of visceral biological grunginess.***
***The other half is grounded in our denial of mortality.
