Consensual Sexuality

I don’t care what your gender/preference/orientation is.
LGBTQIAP+ .. whatever.
Really. I don’t care. We all have preferences. You are no different than the rest of the world. We [should] all have the same rights.

I don’t care if you ‘come out’ or if you keep it ‘locked up’.
(You should be who you truly are.)

It doesn’t matter to me what you like to poke it in, or like to be poked from, or with, or where, or not at all.. as long as it is mutually consensual (and both are reasonably aged, you goddamn pedophiles).

But: I am so tired of hearing it on the news, seeing it on TV, movies, plastered over social media.. so STOP SHOVING IT IN OUR FACES! (Here’s looking at you, Star Trek’s: ‘Discovery’! If I wanted to see two men making out in the engine room, I’d go join a ship again or fire up PornHub! I’m sure it’s on there somewhere..)

If God has a problem with your preference: He will take that up with you in the afterlife.
If Nature has a problem with your preference, she will intrinsically breed out of existence that which does not propagate.
If NEITHER ONE has a problem with it, then NEITHER should you!

So I tell you this: It is not our/society’s place to shun or promote any choice related to mutually consensual sex of reasonable ages.

My, deeply personal, opinion is that ‘gay’ marriage is an oxymoron.
I believe two people of the same gender cannot truly love each other the same way a man and a woman love each other. Lust? Sure, easily. But Love? Nope. I just haven’t seen any proof.. YET.

But I will NOT stop you, or put you down, or in any way not allow you to live your lifestyle choice, as long as what you do is totally mutually consensual.

I’m sure some asshat will take a warped view of my comments as “your way allows [insert nasty bigoted view here]!”.

NO, it does not. Consensual implies informed.

Alcohol, drugs, and youth all impair one’s judgement.. and that prevents the ‘mutually’ consensual part.

Abusing trust, authority, responsibility, or lying is not consensual!


Sports Ability

Okay, bare with me. I’m trying to formulate an idea here..

Sports. Some people love to watch, others to participate. Right?

The current problem, as I understand it, is that we (as enlightened as we claim to be in 2020) are still separating people who compete by their birth genders.. something which isn’t always 100% accurate!

Here is my proposal: How about grouping (not separating!) people into their performance-groups based on their maximum performance levels during training.
Level meaning how far they can throw, how fast they can run, how far they can jump, how well can they hit, etc during their training stages.

This would ignore gender differences, steroid use, drug use, strength.
All of it.
It would dismiss the old stereotype of ‘women’ being weaker than ‘men’.
It would dismiss the fear of being beat by a ‘woman’ who was classified as a ‘male’ at birth. And visa-versa.

If a 125 pound person can run, jump, & throw distance-X then classify them into that Level-10 group. No matter what they’re juiced up on, or born as, or how many years of training they’ve had.

Same thing: If a 275 pound Rock (Dwane Johnson – who is the coolest guy ever) can run, jump, & throw distance-X, then group him into a different Level-20 group.

Basically: Group via Observed Athletic Ability.

The only cheat to this grouping system, that I can think of at the moment, is some bad apples would purposely under-perform during the ‘testing’ phases in order to gain an edge on the group into which they would be categorized. But then during the actual competition they’d perform at their real Rated level, and thereby have an advantage over their competitors.

But, doesn’t something like this kind of cheating go on these days already?
Just hidden from view so they don’t get caught as easily?

Maybe adjust the pay/awards/rewards on their Level then?

What do you think? Would this help eliminate all of the phobias in sports?
Man vs woman. Transgender vs non-transgender?
