Being forced to wear close, at one point, must have had the same issue. They aren't necessary (in warm climates) but you were an outcast if you didn't, because the king said to.

Is Sexual Promiscuity a Human Right? by StillLessons in whatever

[–]discountmeat 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Our culture is one of promoting passion and sexual frustration, but certainly not sexuality. If that were the case, we would see loving partners on the tv, even being sexual, rather than cheating couples and general violence. It's odd that we allow violence on broadcast television, but not loving sexuality.

The word Promiscuity comes with moral baggage, "sin" even. Sin is something we were taught to keep us feeling guilty and fearful of a vengeful god. It's ingrained in us through the entire unconscious stream of connected humanity. Did you know the medieval church held that a woman who was rapped was responsible for provoking it, and for the loss of the rapist soul, for which she would have to make reparations on judgement day? Fear. Hell. Tities bad.

That is an old system that doesn't work. We know in hindsight that these religious leaders cause wars fighting over which god is best. Even atheist kingdoms have a very strong stance on "sin". Ask yourself, do you believe the politicians or priests have your best interest? Do these people represent compassion? They are the ones saying sexual freedom is wrong.

Sexuality is part of you, yet we are supposed to believe it's wrong. Promiscuity, in the sense of cheating on your partner, that's a contract that you broke with them, and will have consequences. However, you can have a relationship without sexual monogamy. Plenty of people do. Search polyamory of non-monogamy to see.

So how is it that sexuality is wrong, though it's built in just like being thirsty? It's that way because we have let others into our life and given them our authority. In the same way people wear masks, even though there is no pandemic, we are afraid of freedom in our sexuality, even though there is nothing wrong with it.

If sexuality is sinful, then your body is sinful for wanting. If that's the case, you better go find a savior to believe in to calm your nerves and help you suppress your natural desires. You will have a hard time explaining why women have a clitoris, but you can deny reality all you like. You have free will.

If your body isn't sinful, then how can sex be wrong? If promiscuity is against our nature, then why do priests and politicians have free reign with it while teaching us it is wrong?

I could go on and on, but to your question. Sexuality is a human reality. Promiscuity is your choice. I think a more ideal way to handle sexuality is with openness of heart rather than banging everything that is fleshy.

A good book needs to be written on this subject.

Saidit is not uncensorable, it just has a policy that is leaps and bounds above others. It has a policy about being transparent when removing users. Policy doesn't make it truly uncensorable. If you want truly unscensorable, post your work on the blockchain. That's impossible to censor as long as the internet is live.

I'm all for tearing down the internet as we know it and separate those who can handle different opinions and those who needs safe spaces!

Not following. Different opinions are impossible to avoid, and that's not what I am proposing. I am proposing Saidit elevate the privelidges required to participate in a public conversation. People tend to get childish and mean when they have anonymity online. That's what I would like to separate out. See my comments on kokolokoNightcrawler's comment to get a better understanding.

I am interested in keeping out non-helpful cruft comments that don't enhance the conversation. But what a wonderful opportunity to illustrate my idea!

The premise here says a public conversation is special and the right to join it even more so.

Since you don't know me, you might believe I am interested in fact-free safe spaces. I can't personally think of one person in my life that would say that of me. What we have here is an accusation without a relationship. If someone close to me had told me what you did, I would have to take it to heart. But you feel justified in saying it for your own reasons, and it's not based on truth of knowing me or understanding what I am proposing.

In other words, you joined a public conversation without earning that right. You must show driving proficiency to past the drivers test before getting your license to drive a heavy vehicle at high speeds, why not earn the right to join a public conversation?

The "safe space" notion isn't a bad one. Most of the time, I want a safe place. Many times I don't. A better way to think about it is an incubation space for thoughtful people to inspire each-other. Safe from attacks yet full of cognitive dissonance.

Here's how the situation would have gone if under the proposed paradigm: You come across a post of mine and want to comment. Since the community doesn't know you, you can't post yet, lest you drag down and discourage me from posting again. The community would comment on my post, as they had many times before and I had to their post. If I were to post again and you had just been admitted to the community, you would never squander such a privilege with an unfounded character attack because you don't want to loose your privilege. Rather than attacking me, you would say something helpful. You comment: "You're just interested in your fact-free safe space" could have read: "This paradigm shift would lead to a lack of debate and criticism". Then, your perspective, the thing which no one else in the world has, can enhance a public conversation!

In this scenario, you get to decide to stay on the attack and not participate, or be helpful and participate. The community gets to focus on honing themselves through constructive dialog and idea sharing. They can let in as few or as many members as they like.

In the end, this comment was helpful!
