    So you think it's okay to just continue being an uninformed homophobe? Mission accomplished.

    Never desired to be informed about homosexuality. Are you a homosexual?

    Most women know exactly why some men drive huge 4x4's.

    Same reason why some men talk big on a chess website.

    Overcompensation.
    I recall a famous quote on Seinfeld from Elaine.
    "I don't know how you guys can walk around with those things"

    So what you are saying is ...
    "I don't know how you guys can drive around in those things".

    So you admit your ignorance on the subject. You sir, have defeated yourself.

    No. Why does that matter one whit?

    Are you racist because you're white?

    By and large it is mostly one time hookups. As an RVer I have saw these hookup places....
    And to what extent have you seen heterosexual hook-up culture with bars serving up alcohol, the social lubricant that makes the one night stand possible? How many truckstops have you overnighted in where young girls are pimped to long haul drivers to spend some downtime in their sleeping berth.

    The behaviour between homosexuals is not unique in this regard. If you were being consistent in the matter, you might observe that it's possibly because of the mainstream cultures attitudes to casual sex, that those who define themselves as being homosexual have also gone that way.

    I wonder what you all think of it!
    I read the article and I'm not sure if I'm missing something due to what looks largely like a semantic argument. Too be honest I got a bit lost near the end and gave up.

    Is it saying we all have every aspect of sexual orientation inside of us and it's only because of social pressure that we conform to a "heterosexual orientation is normal" paradigm?

    Personally I think he gets the story muddled about biblical injunctions against masturbation. The masturbation is sin business I think is overstated. The sin of Onan was really the sin of denying livelyhood. Onan was obligated by Levitical law to impregnate his dead brother's wife so that she would continue to share in the land. She needed offspring of the brothers bloodline to be assured this.

    Onan practicing birth control on the job denied this woman her right, which would leave her destitute. But this argument makes the Bible sound less moral guide and more Marxist advocate, and who has time these days to listen to a commie manifesto that acknowledges the rights of everyone to share in the means of production?

    What kind of person does what you just did? You represent liberals well.

    Not read the article either.

    I did clearly state in the OP I wanted opinions on the article and not just people opening their gob and defecating their stupidity over us all.

    Why is it so important to put a label on people?

    If you can get Shav removed for quote abuse, then maybe I'll bother to get you removed for being wantonly childish and stupid, your posts constituting a total abuse of intelligent debate.

    Do you honestly think anyone is eagerly rushing to debates to engage with you in your childish clickbait threads?

    But you're engaging in a thread about sexuality, which includes homosexuality. If you prefer not to be informed, does that mean your purpose here is simply to troll and be abusive?
