If you are a regular visitor to Sex Hysteria!, you have noticed that the articles have been coming less often. This is primarily due to the fact that I have more things to do than time to do them. I have thus made a decision to shed myself of some activities that will allow me to focus more time on others. This blog will remain open at least until the domain name expires, but I will no longer add to it.
I wish to thank my regular readers and those who took the time to contribute their own thoughts. I am very flattered to be in the midst of such honorable company.
Writing this blog has been an eye opening experience. While there are some cases of responsible reporting by the mainstream press on the topic of sex, the vast majority of such reporting is intentionally concocted to be sensationalistic in order to attract an audience. I used to think that kind of journalism was limited to the rags you see at the supermarket checkout stands, but the rationale has now fully infected almost all popular news sources in the U.S. Traditional news outlets, rather than searching for the truth, now find it much more profitable to cater to the angry mob, even creating an angry mob where otherwise none would exist as they did so effectively when they targeted CraigsList. Instead of being disinterested observers of events they now want to be part of the action and be actively involved in the making of news.
After producing this blog for only a year, I have come to understand that oppressive laws that target sexual activity are motivated by the same kind of prejudices that have been at the root of all persecution throughout history. It is driven by human hatred of those who are different. And it’s an equal opportunity affliction infecting both left and right.
The fact that you can be imprisoned for what you do on your own property with other consenting adults is tyranny. Democracy only means that your oppressor is the guy who lives next door rather than some dictator.
Without sovereignty over one’s own body, there is no freedom.
