I am looking for answers here.Preferably intelligent ones.
It seems that human sexuality has caused alot of trouble throughout time.Think of sexual predators, sexual harrassment, child molestors,damaging divorces and all other kinds of unwanted attention( I speak as a female here.)
I mean, if human reproduction was important, couldn't we have done it some other way?Like plant seeds in a field the same way we plant and harvest potatos?
Now women are stuck with the job of giving birth and being treated as second class citizens if they don't absolutely LOVE children and want to submit to a husband for the rest of their earthly lives.
Whats more , is that women are objectified at every turn and evaluated by how attractive they are.If they are attractive they have to fend off unwanted attention and feel unsafe in public areas and if they are less attractive they are more often than not dismissed and made to feel as though something is lacking.
I really have a problem with the idea that men and women somehow "complete " each other and although I aknowledge that the bible is explicit about homosexuality being a sin - which I accept as Gods word - I feel that the church is still a patriarchal institution - where women tend to play second fiddle - at least this is the case in most reformed churches.
I wish there would be less emphasis on gender differences and more emphasis on our common HUMANITY.Ideally, we would be asexual and therefore not have to be drawn into the war of the sexes.
There wouldn't be an overpopulated world, where mostly women are victims of sexual assault and exploitation and we wouldn't have the abortion debate.
In my opinion, human sexuality is not a gift - it is more trouble than it's worth.
