Signed, Sk8eycat. Thanks for the link. And thanks for your support. You're the best!
Years ago I had two neutered male cats, and one used to mount the other every once in a while...just to demonstrate that he was the boss cat in this house. Both were indoor cats since kittenhood, so they never saw any animals mating.
BUT, I have read in several different books that even in the wild, there are many animals and birds that mate for life, and among these animals there are same-sex pairs. Sometimes they even "adopt" and raise orphaned younglings. They are accepted in the flock or pack as just another couple.
So every time I hear or read some iggerant bigot use the word "unnatural" I try my best to educate the idiot. I don't have much success, as far as I know, but I keep hoping.
Love is love. Period.
For myself, I think I'm a neuter...I never found anybody that I trusted enough to commit my life, privacy, and emotions to...so after sleeping around a lot till I was about 35, I just gave up, and decided to stay single. It gets lonely sometimes, but I have friends, and one of my favorite lines from the "Tales of the City" books is "It's better to have five good friends than one indifferent lover." Or something like that.
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."
