Still wondering if my position on gay marriage is the result of my ideological point of view being biased due to racial contexts.
Wondering about the possible causes for your position on ethical issues is always a good thing.


What about the NSA's domestic surveillance program? Do I really oppose that or is that just my privilege talking?
Wrong question, please get back to wondering if your position is caused by things.

Can you honestly not tell the difference between asking yourself why you think something and asking yourself what thought you should have?

Well, a graduate stipend is SOME money...  :lol:

At least this summer I should have a fair amount of free time, or at least, if not free per se, unpressured time.

I like that distinction. I hate both free time and busy time equally. Unpressured time is where it's at.

We could probably all use a little more unpressured time in our lives.

Shit, I wasn't even aware that swingers and polys had a philosophy or dogma to justify their actions. Which sounds stupid now that I say that, seeing as how almost everyone has a philosophy or dogma to justify their actions. I guess their philosophies and dogmas remained hidden to me because I haven't met many, and I never really thought about it. I mean, I know people who fuck around a lot and they don't seem to care at all, but that's probably not what you're talking about. Swingers, on the other hand, I have never had the pleasure of meeting.

Swinging makes me a bit uncomfortable. But the closest thing to that that I can relate to is my idea of a perfect relationship:

Two people are partners, a single force against the entire world. They do whatever it takes to better themselves. If it means fucking someone outside of the relationship to get favors that benefit them both, so be it. But at the end of the night (Or in the morning, when the partner returns from fucking the other person), it's their partner they truly love.

But that's probably some fairytale shit. House of Cards (American version) projects unrealistic relationship goals for me  :lulz:


More on-topic: Anyone who insists that my sexual orientation or preference is actually something other than what I've decided to express, is a total fuckwad. I don't care what the "science" of sexual predisposition says. My desires don't have to be fucking scientific. I will only be happy doing what I will. Anyone suggesting that I will be happy doing something else can suck a swinging bag of dicks.

I think that most of us have an internal, perhaps unconscious model for how the world "should" work, and in most cases we are shaping our relationships and life choices after that model. Some people formally codify that internal model into an idea for what "everyone should do/really is", and that's where you get folks trying to tell you how YOU should live your life and what YOU should be attracted to.

And yeah, it's generally pretty dickbaggish.

"Nigel is always right" is a fucking in-joke, FFS. I'm always right the way a fifteen-year-old is always rational.

And shit, yeah, sometimes people need to stop and wonder whether maybe, just MAYBE they're wrong because they're missing part of the picture. It can be a startling thought, if you open yourself up to it, to consider that something you have been taking for granted as TRUE may be seen as FALSE by people who are more affected by it than you are. It may even take a moment of pause, some reflection, and a little flexibility of intellect.

To judge someone's inner process based on a few brief outward expressions is, IMO, pure arrogance.

Let's just leave it at Ron Paul doesn't like the way I think, and I am ok with that.

It's basic fucking critical thinking, FFS.

Which is un-American as fuck, and Hoopla oughta be ashamed of himself.

I'll hand in my 'Murrican card at the door.

You can say I changed my mind back, but it was never changed in the first place, which you don't seem to be getting. Pausing to think is not necessarily a 180.

And yes, everything is up for theoretical debate.
