Ceci n'est pas une personne.

(no subject)

Listening to NPR this morning, they had an interesting discussion on monistic lifestyles. Wether Jewish, Christian (and Catholic), or Buddhist. The conversation turned to sexuality and the monistaic lifestyle. Their view on sex was very different from what I expected, and it was actually very healthy, especially the Buddhist view.

They said that they want people to pick an nondestructive form of sex for themselves. Even celibacy is a sexual choice. That wether hetero, homo, or bi-sexual, they want their member to choose a form of sex that is emotionally healthy for themselves. If sex in general is emotionally damaging for you, then choose celibacy. If hetro sexuality is not good for you, then go for homo sexuality.

This was not what I expected them to say, but I'm very happy they did. It follows my view on things. The only downside is, just because you swing one way, doesn't mean the people you are attracted to swings the same way, or will even find you attractive. But that samething applies to love. Just because you love someone doesn't mean they have to love you.

Damn, I love NPR sometimes. :-)
