Same-sex marriage was brought to us by…

January 31st, 2018 by Bookslinger

the same people who gave us the Sexual Revolution.

And how did that work out?

It took a generation for the effects to really show.  It took another generation for the painful statistics to be painfully obvious. But the results are in. All the measurements about sexual/mental health, family health, social health are blaringly obvious about the results of sex-outside-of-marriage, a.k.a. the sexual revolution.  But there’s no “Oops, that wasn’t so good after all.”  There has been no rethinking of it in education, entertainment media, or news media. 

Why were the sexual revolutionaries in education, entertainment media and news media trusted this time around?  

Given the two generations of observable results, studies and statistics, why isn’t the “science settled”?

Well, who would you trust – the cool guy or the buzzkill?

I think it’s not as much that many people don’t believe that monogamy and chastity are objectively good things, or that they bring good results – it’s that we’ve collectively lost the ability to do those things.
Unless you’re taught from youth to fight against culture, you end up going along with it, right down into its death spiral.
Some people are deluded into thinking that SSM and the Sexual Revolution are good things, but more people just don’t want to stand up or stand out against a culture that is increasingly angry and which can get you fired or publicly shamed for disagreeing, even with the very best science on your side. It’s all about how you feel, don’tcha know . . . reality isn’t even really a concept any more in public discourse.

I’d say the simple answer is that (for most people) sex is naturally the second most important thing in life: the first being (real) religion. Subtract (real) religion (from the mass of people, from culture) – and sex naturally takes-over as the priority in life.

The consequences of the sexual revolution therefore don’t matter – nothing is more important than more sex with more people/ things of the kind people want-sex-with (or, more realistically, the possibility of it happening).
