Gay sex, non-sexual gays, non-sex, and masturbation?

by

When reason is missing I smell religion. Whether it is worship of the imaginary friend in the sky or “government” the results are the same.

I was recently witness to a discussion about homosexuality.  Go figure.  One person was taking the position that some gay couples might be just like some hetero couples and never actually have sex, but just like being married or a couple for companionship and convenience.

The other said that if they aren’t having sex, they are not gay, no matter what they say.

He (who is a frequently-published writer whom I have never seen say anything bizarre) was claiming that there is no such thing as “sexuality” and it doesn’t matter who you claim to be attracted to- he says if you aren’t having sex, you can’t be “gay” or “straight”.

Then he went on to claim that only procreation counts as sex.  Everything else is, to him, “masturbation”.

So, he was asked if this means infertile couples didn’t have sex; if Bill Clinton was telling the truth when he claimed he didn’t have sex with Miss Lewinski; if it’s not “sex” if you use birth control; etc.

He said it is not sex if it isn’t procreation.

Lots of angry, jealous spouses might be upset to hear that their divorce was based upon them falling for a lie.  If no baby resulted, then there was no sex and they had no cause to divorce their non-cheating spouse.  They owe restitution for their false accusations.

It is obvious to me that on this subject, he is full of crap.  He made some other comments to try to distance himself from religion, while still accepting their anti-sexual worldview.  It’s just like almost all the anti-abortion arguments I have ever seen- they are all based upon the belief that Sky Daddy doesn’t want abortions (never mind that he performs the vast majority of them himself)- no matter how strongly the person claims their view isn’t religious in nature.  I think he is sorely lacking in reason on this issue, and I can’t see why he should be.  It sure smells like religion to me.
