“Let’s correct this error [Rebeca] with a large unfounded assumption.–> “Sex
is a beautiful exquisite gift between two people who are married.”
It is a beautiful gift for any number of mature people who can enjoy it without harm to themselves or others. When I say harm, I do not refer to emotional uneasiness or idealistic outrage like the kind that was spewed at women for wanting the vote. I mean actual measurable harm. When the people of any number are consenting and don’t cause harm there is NO reason to avoid sex when the opportunity arises regardless of customary legal paperwork.”
How many failures will convince a Social Conservative they are wrong? What do you call the maintenance of a belief in the midst of contrary evidence?
When reasoning from a concept the deduction does not begin with facts. That includes ideas of a better world. If such thinking was adapted to facts, only then could we could call it reasonable.
Sex Education = sex – suggests that if you don’t educate then sex wont happen. On what planet?
If the American economy were better, more people would have jobs.
If people did not break laws, we would not need cops.
If there were no religions, there would be no religious wars.
If women did not work, there would be no harassment of women in the workplace.
The appeal of simple solutions, their only fault is they solve no problem.
*Yes 2+2 = 4
Unless variables exists outside the formula. 2 + 2 rabbits can soon be more than 4 rabbits without adding or subtracting any.
Useless to say it’s an unfair example because of change. Unknown and uncontrollable variables are the argument!!!
The problems comprehensive sex education address have not gone away. Putting head-in-sand (or elsewhere) and pretending they don’t exist puts young people at more risk. The refusal to acknowledge the miserable failures of these abstinence programs is indicates the support for the programs is dogmatic. In other words unreasonable.
