I’ve Become a Sex Curmudgeon March 13, 2017Posted by geoff in News.
Emma Watson showing some skin in a Vanity Fair photo shoot has many people accusing her of hypocrisy, since years ago she had criticized other stars for exposing themselves and becoming sex objects. It prompted this column in the New York Post:
But I think that confusion extends more broadly among the liberal set. It seems like every time an issue comes up, liberals disrobe. Attention-getting? Sure, but for all the wrong reasons.
My take is that if you have to take off your clothes to get people to pay attention to your cause or issue, maybe your cause/issue aren’t that important. Maybe your arguments aren’t compelling, and playing “Strip Debate” isn’t going to help them.
Kind of goes with the liberal preoccupation with sex. Nothing wrong with sex – I myself have dabbled in it once or twice. But from the left’s perspective, sex is all-important.
The gender silliness* underscores this: for some reason, who you want to love or have sex with defines you. Forget your background, your hopes and ambitions, your job, your family – none of that matters. What does matter is that you’re a left-handed reverse polarity furry trapped in a hairless body, with a predilection for sex with carnival folk.
And of course, you can’t have a successful marriage without great sex – that’s the number one criterion by which marriages are judged these days. Sexuality is so important to them that they keep trying to teach it to elementary and junior high school kids.
So let me just say this about that:
Sex just isn’t that important
The fact is, you can have a great life with bad sex. Or no sex. The other fact is that nobody cares about your sex life, unless it’s really, really funny. So shut up about it and keep it private: stop trumpeting your preferences to the world. They’re unimportant and uninteresting.
And keep your clothes on.
