Don’t hurt yourself jumping to conclusions!
Honestly, you really ought to stretch and warm up a bit before jumping to conclusions. You guys jumped so far and so hard, I’m worried you might hurt yourselves!
I am referring of course, to my now notorious anal sex post. You will recall I made a simple statement:
“In my opinion, anal sex is icky.”
People instantly jumped to the conclusion that this opinion has something to do with the definition of marriage. Of course, it does not. I never said it did. I never even hinted that I thought that it did.
Nevertheless, the Life Style Left is so deeply imbued with statism (i.e. the ideology and cult of the state) that they reflexively interpret and reinterpret every issue in terms of what the government is or isn’t doing. For a movement that claims to be about freedom and liberation, this is not a good sign.
The second place people jumped was to a lame effort to score points. I was instantly informed that straight people engage in anal sex too! A long conversation ensued about who does it, who likes it, etc. The observation that anyone might perform this particular sexual act actually demonstrates this simple point: In our society, anyone, male or female, straight or gay, might have a personal preference or opinion on the subject.
All in all, a rhetorical triumph for the Life Style Left! You proved a point that no one ever denied and that is irrelevant to any issue at hand. (sarc!)
(BTW: To all of you charitable souls who expressed concern about the frequency and pleasure of my personal sex life, let me say, my husband and I are truly touched. I also received charming suggestions for sexual activities I might perform on myself. For some reason, Betsy censored these comments.)
Our posts on the costs of divorce, the benefits of monogamy, the various nefarious acts by the IVF industry, the problems of population decline, and the Indian government’s sterilization of its citizens generated an average of zero comments. The Post in Question however, received over one hundred comments. Perhaps that is what your search filters are set up to find. Or, perhaps this is the sort of post the Market demands, and therefore, what I ought to produce more of.
You may wonder: since I believe this set of comments was basically irrelevant, what exactly was I trying to get at with The Post in Question, apart from the intrinsic amusement of taunting Leftists? I will explain in another post.
