    I suspect that many of the traditionally sex-positive writers and researchers have avoided this topic previously because it seemed like it would end up, inevitably, as a way to attack the GLBT community in a roundabout fashion.

    i think a lot of the heterosexual support for gay marriage comes from the moral primacy of monogamy

    Wrong as I feel that primacy may be for some people, I can't disagree here.

    There are certainly genetic (and epigenetic lol) predispositions to certain personality traits, which themselves might be predispositions to one relationship style or another.

    Traits like extroversion, or variety-seeking.

    Yeah, absolutely

    I was more wondering if its more explicitly comparable to sexuality

    in that someone can really be born poly- or mono-sexual, and there's a theoretical spectrum, etc.

    and, like I said, I think that people have avoided that question because its a gigantic fucking minefield and even mentioning it I feel the need to create a long list of disclaimers that I'm not saying X, Y, or Z.

    I doubt that it's remotely as discrete as that.

    Hell, I think sexual orientation isn't as discrete as we make it out to be.

    I suspect that at best we'll be able to identify certain biological markers that have weak but detectable correlations on certain personality traits (and preferences, and behaviors) which themselves have weak but detectable correlations with certain types of romantic arrangement.

    But I do think that people are often pushed into the closest matching box by various circumstances (in many different ways in life, not just with sexuality). If you're mostly satisfied with monogamy but you have a little tickle in the back of your brain about other people, that might not be enough to push you to break your vows. Or you may go through a slutty phase after a divorce because you're overcompensating for lack of sexy fun times during your marriage.

    i think a lot of the heterosexual support for gay marriage comes from the moral primacy of monogamy

    Which is weird, because part of the support is also a recognition of "well, everyone just does their own thing, hooray America!"

    So you have contradictory messages in that society is now allowing homosexuals to get "real" married, as in a monogamous 1+1 traditional household marriage, while a big part of the message and validation behind allow gay marriage is letting individuals define their own sexual and romantic identities.

    Ultimately, I think support for gay marriage, long-term, lends itself towards a society more willing to consider and eventually support non-traditional relationships.

    So yes, Republicans,

    you were right

    gay marriage will destroy traditional marriage

    its just nobody will care.

    it's kind of sold both ways i think

    it kind of appeals to social libertarianism, which is de rigeur in most left-wing individualism and also a newly (re?) emergent strain of conservatism

    and also promises the goal of socially mainstreaming gays, which i guess appeals to a lot of people across the social spectrum kind of independently of political ideology.

    the pushback to the second thing is going to find common cause with social conservatives as well as queer-identity ideologues, since both have a strong vested interest in maintaining the distinct otherness of homosexuals/ queers/ etc.

    strange bedfellows i guess.

    as far as support for poly marriage goes, i'll believe it when i see it. homosexuality and trans-genderism are able to be (barely) tolerated or supported because they don't particularly undercut near-universal social values. poly marriage totally does, and it's really only ever viewed in the US as an anthropological oddity.

    that rant is really fucked up because he found a picture of the only black woman he knows who does webcomics and plastered it on his blog and acted like he was acting on her behalf

    when she is friends with joel watson and did not give him her permission

    he just put it up to give his rant some more legitimacy or something? thats fucked

    i feel like there are not enough eyes in the world to roll to the degree that page deserves

    the boohoohoo tumblr one?

    i feel like he makes plenty of good points, but he is also making them through the kind of lens that is only forged by tumbling down the tumblr rabbit hole, where you spin around in your own ideology until you're constantly possessed by a throbbing, shrieking panic that you can barely control because everything is falling apart

    i largely agree with his points in it though

    Yeah, I don't understand what you're getting at, spool, aside that you're having a strong reaction.

    Hell, I think sexual orientation isn't as discrete as we make it out to be.

    Apparently that new Pokemon anime clarified that Gym Leaders have a set of rules or whatever, saying they have a different lineup depending on which town the challenging trainer is from. So Brock is a chump, right? Because he's the "first" gym leader. But if you're a trainer from way the other side of Kanto, by the time you get to Brock he's authorized to take the gloves off.

    That makes so much sense.

    Oh brilliant

    I am using a hidden camera to watch a panda sleep

    ...doing that is only creepy when the sleeping creature is a human, right? It's kosher to secretly watch pandas sleep?

    in Singapore, evangelical churches can be pretty aggressive about converting youths, or reinforcing any existing nominal faith. I'm sure that's the case in the US too.

    because the extent of cultural Christianity in Singapore is placid Anglicanism, young adult born-again Christians can roar out the doors of their church camp spouting anger and fury, but mostly to the bafflement of their existing peers. After a couple of weeks of confusion, most will adapt towards the weary apathy more typical of an evangelical adjusted to multicultural life - church is for meeting up with friends, youth group is for networking - but, well, you always see a few exceptions who decide that all their non-Christian friends worship demons, all their liberal friends are servants of Satan preaching immorality and sin, and - in particular - all their already-apathetic nominally Christian friends are literally faithless liars. And then they respond as you might expect from actually believing such things, rather than merely mouthing the words every Sunday: fury, dismay, disappointment. Nobody wants to join them in spreading the Word of God to the nations, not even their "Christian" "friends", and the discovery of such fair-weather betrayal cuts deep.

    in the modern days of Facebook, you can observe such spectacular explosions from a distance away. And then you lose a friend, or you watch friends lose their friend. Sometimes they surface again years later, with wholly different groups of friends and with all their fervour evaporated, but sometimes they just fade from your life.

    And that's how I feel when reading that Campbell post. Well, unpleasant memories.
