The end is here, my friends…or is it?
In closing, I will touch upon certain factions of society which might be seen as exceptions to the rule. It’s taken me a few days to come up with this list, but quite honestly, I’m having trouble convincing myself that they’re really exceptions: (Keep in mind I’m not by any shape or form an expert on the following, and will only try to find purchase in the potential discussions proceeding.)
Homosexuality. As I understand it, one is born a homosexual, and homosexuality is nothing but a person of one sex feeling for someone of the same sex what heterosexual people feel for other people of the opposite sex. The “circumstance” of homosexuality raises the question of whether or not sex is still success even without the possibility of natural-born offspring? I believe being born homosexual does not guarantee that such a state of being is not some kind of chemical imbalance in the brain. A homosexual has all of the same sexual urges as a heterosexual, and for the “right” reasons, just in the “wrong” way. Offspring, or the manner of producing offspring, is the ultimate goal. Because a homosexual cannot achieve this goal by natural means, he or she has to take alternate courses of action. Namely, in vitro fertilization and or adoption. Both of which I see as a trick one would play on oneself, to convince oneself of achieving success.
Pedophilia. At first thought, there are three reasons for these horrible acts upon humanity. Firstly, a chemical imbalance in the brain which wires certain people (adults) to desire sexual relations with children – children who are physically immature and consequently cannot reproduce. Secondly, a faction of the victims of sexual abuse as children are known to repeat the process once they themselves reach adulthood. I don’t see this so much as a chemical imbalance in the brain as I do a serious disturbance of their emotions, and a distortion of what is right and what is wrong. Thirdly, priests, by way of spiritual castration. Sex will always win in this case, in one form or another. What we know about sexually repressed priests scares the shit out of me, because imagine how much we don’t know? And while on the topic of castration:
Guys who lost their nuts in Vietnam (or women who once suffered from endometriosis, victims of cancer, victims of sexual violence). In these cases, reproduction is out of the question. Yet, as is the case with the aforementioned priests, the urges never die. And when the urge is there, but the tools are not, more often than not, people will find another outlet. I won’t go into the list because I’m trying to make this brief. In short, most of the other outlets of sexual urges lead to negative activities. More often than not, violence is the chosen outlet. Sex is violent. When there is no more sex, as in the case with the guy who lost his nuts in Vietnam, the only thing left is violence. No sex = failure.
People who have been married for some time. It’s common knowledge that married people live mainly sexless lives. There are many theories out there as to why this occurs, here’s mine. Once a person is married and has children they raised to adulthood, the mission is over. The sex served its purpose, “so now what?” Marriage is the life after success. Marriage is post-success, so that the rest of one’s life is a failure. With today’s technology and the knowledge we have of our aging bodies and how to keep them in shape, marriage is not necessary. If anything, it’s an outdated institution and a boon upon humanity. It’s a means to an end, but far too soon. To reiterate, marriage is what happens when two people set out to achieve far too soon, and by means that will leave them with nothing but failure for far too long.
Abortion. This is perhaps the “touchiest” subject on the list, and rightly so. Abortion, as it pertains to this blog, is the act of attaining success, only to convert it into a failure. Nothing could make less sense. I know there are many factors which come into play when abortion is an option. And from a totally logical point of view, I can be convinced that there is no other option. Unfortunately, I know this from personal experience. Unbeknownst to my fellow participants, this success-converted-into-failure has left me in a perpetual state of emotional confusion. Why? Because I participated in my own downfall and went against the laws of nature. Yes, pain heals all wounds, but the scars remain. And the scars of failure are never forgotten.
