Birds do it, bees do it. Even educated fleas do it.
Yesterday I wrote a post concerning an unfortunate tragedy in Houston where a man mistook his daughter’s 17 year old boyfriend for a rapist and shot him dead. The comments drifted into a discussion about what the boy was doing in the girl’s bedroom at 3:30 a.m. I said:
Teenagers are like dogs in heat. You gotta keep ‘em separated or shit happens.
YOU CANNOT TRUST TEENAGERS TO BE RESPONSIBLE ABOUT SEX.
Anybody who has ever been a teenager knows this is true. That’s why we act like our parents did when we have teenagers of our own. This isn’t some recent discovery, either.
Despite what some people would like you to think, human nature hasn’t changed since Adam and Eve first played hide-the-salami. All you gotta do is read some ancient texts like the Bible and you’ll see that fornicating has been humanities favorite pasttime for a long, long time.
Because we are mammals we engage in sexual reproduction to make more of our species. That means a male and a female both contribute genetic material which is then combined to produce an offspring with a unique mix of both parent’s genes. IOW – we make babies by fucking. The human male shoots his seed into the human female’s vagina, and them little tadpoles go look for her egg so they can fertilize it.
Sexual reproduction is a very complicated process that really wasn’t understood until fairly recently, and yet humans somehow managed to accomplish it on a fairly frequent basis long before science was even invented.
Kids spend the first 12 years or so of their lives generally uninterested in sex. They might be curious about it but they lack the equipment to appreciate it. Then at some point around the age of 13 everything changes. Suddenly, sex becomes a near-obsession, and it will remain a near-obsession for a while.
This is Mother Nature’s way of ensuring the survival of the human race.
Not all living creatures reproduce sexually. Not all of the creatures that reproduce sexually find the act enjoyable. Some animals mate for life. Humans are not naturally monogamous and we (generally) find sex pleasurable. That is why we have sex for recreation and not just reproduction.
Here is where the problems with sex come in. First of all, our sex drive kicks in several years before we reach full physical, emotional and mental maturity. Secondly, until fairly recently there was no way to prevent pregnancy from happening. Last but not least, there is a substantial period of time in which the human female needs support and assistance for herself and her child to survive.
So here you have a horny male who wants to run around and have sex with lots of females and females who need someone to provide for her and her baby.
This is where society and culture get involved. I don’t know exactly what sexual behavior was like back in prehistoric times. But as human societies evolved they started creating rules for sexual behavior.
These were not always good rules, and sometimes the rules became obsolete or even oppressive. But we need to understand why the rules came about in the first place.
All of our rules for sexual behavior were intended to protect and provide for women and to force males to be responsible for their progeny. It’s really that simple.
You can fight Mother Nature, or you can work with her. A whole lot of modern feminism and Prog ideas about sexuality run contrary to nature.
I’ll stop here. What do you think?
