More Americans than ever say sex between teenagers is morally acceptable AllahpunditPosted at 6: They should have refined the question to specify whether they mean sex between underaged teens or all teens, as that ambiguity may be pushing the approval numbers up a bit. Nothing ends a long week like getting an outrage buzz on over teen promiscuity, but before we pronounce America lost, let me throw this graph at you.
Posted on September 15, by Ozy Frantz [Content note: Some sexually explicit content. Discussion without endorsement of various forms of transphobia, homophobia, et cetera. The linked book contains much fascinating information, such as the fact that animal sexuality has been documented in almost species and that, in one study, ninety percent of observed giraffe sex was between two males.
I am not sure why animal homosexuality is so common: I am not an evolutionary biologist myself. But it suggests that the simplistic model in which fucking something other than a vagina is not selected for is incorrect.
In addition, homosexuality is probably not inborn. A Swedish twin study with a sample size of found that genetic factors and shared-environment factors together explained only a third of the variance in sexual orientation, while two-thirds were explained by unshared environment.
Indeed, Spandrell admits as much, saying that we do not know the cause of gayness. Spandrell argues that female paraphiliacs do not exist because they do not usually tell researchers about being paraphiliacs.
Unfortunately, he is missing the very large confounding variable, which is that women are fucking liars about sex.
As I pointed out in my Anti-Heartiste FAQ, evidence suggests that the entire sexual partner gap between men and women is explicable by women being goddamned liars.
Spandrell challenged me in his comment section— if female paraphilia is a thing— to find cases of female death by autoerotic asphyxiation. It is true that women are less likely to die by autoerotic asphyxiation. However, women are less likely than men to masturbate, and even when they do they masturbate less often than men dodecreasing the risk of women dying through masturbation.
Given that women lie massively about sex, it is possible that families are more likely to sanitize female autoerotic asphyxiators. Finally, I hate to be the feminist who points this out to the neoreactionary, but men and women are different.
This probably extends to sexual fetishes. I admit that none of these are particularly solid arguments. However, I do have reason to believe that women have things that may be considered paraphilias.
The rise of the ebook has massively expanded the amount of porn that women read. Like I said, women are fucking liars about sex. Spandrell provides as examples: Some men are attracted to babies, others to feet, others to shoes, others to obese women, others to old women.
For instance, paranormal erotic romance is basically just a fetish for fucking vampires and werewolves. However, I suspect that female paraphilias are also going to be structurally different than male paraphilias.
Literally, I have never been able to think of one that is popular and not on her list. I suspect when one studies female paraphilias one will find primarily narrative paraphilias: While one might not consider the latter to be a paraphilia, that seems to be far more related to an androcentric definition of paraphilia than a difference in the prevalence of paraphilias between men and women per se.
Finally, let us discuss trans women. The empirical facts remain the same: All I can figure is that it is the result of a belief that we should call trans women men in order to be pointlessly upsetting to them.
The study divided autogynephiliac arousal into two categories— Autogynephiliac Interpersonal Fantasy essentially, sexual fantasies about being admired as female and the Core Autogynephilia Scale essentially, sexual fantasies about being a very sexy woman.
There was no difference between cisgender women and transgender women in the Autogynephiliac Interpersonal Fantasy scale. However, transgender women scored significantly higher on the Core Autogynephilia Scale. To put it bluntly, this makes no goddamned sense. Cis women are just as likely as trans women to have a particular subtype of autogynephilia, but less likely to have autogynephilia itself?9 Moral Dilemmas That Will Break Your Brain.

Some Moral Dilemmas. The following is a list of some moral dilemmas, mostly adapted from Moral Reasoning, by Victor Grassian (Prentice Hall, , ), with some grupobittia.comas from Grassian are given in his own words, with comments or alterations in brackets.
Rather than shut people down,we should focus on having a discussion. I'm positive that teenagers say a bunch of silly things.
Calling them idiots ensures that they stop saying anything at all,instead of suddenly growing wiser.
