No, sex is not icky and shameful, but you should have learned in basic science 101 that it IS how babies come into the world.

If you don't want a baby then no matter how awesome sex might be, you shouldn't be having it.

There is a massive cognitive disconnect on this because no one seems to disagree that if you want to keep the weight off, you should stop eating those empty calories no matter how awesome that Ben & Jerries might be, but boy, you start telling people that same truth when it comes to sex and babies ... and they can't seem to put 2 and 2 together.

Ah yes, "Abstinence as birth control". The failsafe method, right?

Nevermind that humans have instincts. And ACT on those instincts.

Nah, let's not teach them how to avoid pregnancies through safe sex.

Just teach them that sex not solely for the purpose of procreation is WRONG.

Yup. That oughta work.

And to add to your "eating food" analogy. You don't try to tell people "Just don't eat".

You don't tell people that the key to not getting fat is simply "Don't eat."

You tell them "Eat smart, eat safer foods for you. Eat healthy."

Remember to use live ammo when gun fighting...


...that last post you were shooting blanks!

If you fight against birth control and abortion and do support the children after they are born, you are seen by the many as gloating on the misery of those children.

There it is again. The whole "personal responsibility" argument that demands that everyone act according to how YOU people want them to act so that you can wash your hands of any attempt to think critically about REAL solutions to problems. "Why should -I- do anything? These people should just know how I want them to behave!"

Love the hyperbole.

Find me the method of birth control that is 100% SAFE. Go ahead; I'll wait. You can teach them about sex, you can teach them about birth control, but to call it safe sex is a lie. It's really not, and it shouldn't be taught that way or labeled that way.

Not to mention, of course we have instincts, but I always thought one of the major things that separated us from the animals was our ability to control them. Do you wear a diaper? I don't. Do you know why you don't wear a diaper? It's because your parents taught you to control your instincts to just pee and poop whenever and wherever the urge struck you to do so. I'll bet if you think about it. You have other instincts you also control on a regular basis.

So why can you suddenly not control your urge to have sex? Is it simply because sex feels so damn good that it's just not convenient for you to control it? Is it rather that you'd lie to yourself about how you can never get pregnant if you just practice safe sex? Well, don't worry. It'll probably work out that way for you.

I've had sex dozens of times. And I've never gotten pregnant.

You know how? I practice SAFE sex. If I hadn't been taught about safe sex, I'd probably be pregnant right now. Young people, who are in love, (or lust) will do things that they sometimes don't stop to consider the consequences of. It is a fact of life.

Just as people WILL go for that delicious ben and jerrys, people WILL have sex. Why teach them that sex is wrong? All that does is damage. There is nothing wrong with sex, in fact it's a wonderful method of stress relief, a damn good workout, and makes you feel like a glittering god damn beauty of seduction and wonder.

People WILL have sex, no matter how much you, or anyone else cries and screams about it, it'll happen. Therefore, the LOGICAL thing to do is try our damnedest to prevent unwanted pregnancies through SAFE sex. Is it 100% effective? Nope. But 99.9% effective is a damn sight better than 0% effective if we employ your "abstinence only" method.

Or perhaps it's because without a gender, "he" or "she" is impossible?

A little lima-bean sized clump of tissue doesn't have a gender. Therefore, "It" is the proper pronoun to use.

I could have sympathy for the anti-abortion GOP but I can’t since they don’t give a dam about living children by cutting food stamps, for example, I have no belief they really give a dam about the unborn since they don’t give a dam about the born

Yeah this pretty much sums up my sentiment too. By GOD you better have that baby, oh but when you do you are on your own raising. Tough luck that you can't afford to properly take care of it or anything, because you are clearly a moocher trying to get a handout on the government's dime.

Control of animal instincts?

Why are you having such a hard time with controlling your greed?

If you had conquered the animal instinct of greed you would not have problems with socialism, rather you would embrace helping your society instead worrying what it might cost you.

One side calls them parasites before birth the other side calls them parasites after birth.

Pardon me, miss.

But I can control my urges just fine. I choose to have sex, knowing the risks involved. And more importantly, I choose to have sex, knowing exactly what steps I can take to MITIGATE those risks.

You're seriously deluded if you think you can just preach abstinence and the unwanted pregnancy problem will disappear. Maybe you and I are capable of controlling our urges. But not everyone is, not by a LONG shot. Teenagers are literally walking bundles of out of control hormones. Yes, some of them are capable of controlling their urges, but many will give into what NATURE has pounded into our bodies over BILLIONS years of evolution.

Even if you completely outlaw sex except for written consent to attempt to procreate, people will have sex. You can't stop it.

Again, the LOGICAL thing to do is to teach people how to have sex safely. Teach them how to best mitigate those risks that come with sex, make sure they UNDERSTAND those risks. But don't try to tell people "Just don't have sex." It's quite literally not in our nature.

Isn't a huge part of life resisting instincts and, more importantly, isn't a lot of that resistance considered both a social and a philosophical virtue? Left purely to instincts, most people will segregate, will respond to insult or offense by physically lashing out, will take any shiny thing they find attractive, will exceed the speed limit, will eat nothing but deserts, and will blurt out whatever is on their mind at any given time.

Seems like picking and choosing to expect some instincts to be stifled while using instincts as an excuse for behavior YOU'RE OK with.

Greed: excessive or rapacious desire, especially for wealth or possessions.

Who is actually greedy? The person who has it in their hands, earned by them... or the person with the empty hands who is covetous, desirous of what someone else already earned? Socialism is based on feeding the greedy and the covetous off the lifeblood of the industrious. That's not a conquering of the "animal instinct," it's conquering of "common sense" and "mental stability" and replacing it with brainwashed insanity.

Why not, instead, teach children what those instincts are, what the risk of giving into those instincts are, and how best to prevent the unintended consequences of giving in to those instincts?

Does that not sound better than just saying "Don't give in to your instincts"?

And don't place sex on the same level as social instincts or behavioral instincts.

The instinct to have sex is AS important, evolutionally, as the instinct to breath, and to eat.
To wit, fat people exist today as a result of those same instincts. Yes, a good number of people are capable of curbing those instincts, but just as many give into them. Is not teaching people the risks, and how to best mitigate those risks not the best course of action?

To again use the food analogy. We don't try to teach people "Don't eat."
We try, to our very best efforts, to teach people to eat responsibly, eat healthy.

Why not apply the same logic to sex? Have sex responsibly. Have SAFE sex.
Seems like a better option than just waggling a finger and saying not to do something.

How many times have you told a child "Don't eat that cookie." and they'll look you RIGHT in the face, and eat that damn cookie. The very same result happens when you tell a teenager "Don't have sex." And they'll be MORE inclined to do it. Teenagers are rebellious little bastards like that. I should know, I was one.

To share with others is humane, to take from others just to add to your personal gain is just succumbing to the urge greed.

I myself can not understand why prisons and weapons are never questioned, but any taxes used to help US citizens creates such an outlandish wailing of government theft?

I guess if money spent creates pain and misery it is money well spent???
