"It is said for every action there is a reaction. The reaction to our normal sexuality has been the development of this collage of variants. I am now waiting for the pendulum to swing back the other way. We really need our society to once again resemble something more like Eden than Gomorrah."
Lets pretend when I woke up today, I felt more affection for my truck than my wife. So much so, I wanted to marry my truck. In the wacky world we live in, some human rights group would tell me, "That is okay - we have a separate gender for those who feel strong emotions for mechanical things." In the old days if I had told someone something like this, I would end up in some loony bin. Today? Na - I just became a separate class of gender identity.
WTH is going on with us? Seriously? Someone on the radio the other day said we are now up to over 90 separate genders. How wacky has this become? Earlier this month someone posted on social media a trans gendered woman (does that mean a woman is what she became, or what she was born into?) had herself mutilated by tattoos, piercing and implants to look like a snake. Why? She identified herself to be more snake than human. Again, not that many years ago, something like that would have been a one way ticket to a loony bin. Today - we celebrate her (its) diversity.
The pragmatic streak in me always seems to gravitate to the same question - what do you do for a job when you take such a drastic step off the pier? Who will hire you? What are your social bounds when you identify yourself as polyamorous and love everybody and everything (intimately). How in the world do you procreate and raise children when you are so wacked out, you don't even know who or what you are?
This brave new world we are creating is slowing devolving into something that Dante might have written about. We are eschewing the fact we are either a male or female and splitting that up into almost an infinite number of variations. If someone from 1900 could be brought back today via time travel, that person might think that he or she was on another planet. Seriously!
