…how we just love to say that we have to live our lives the best way we can but then start pitching a bitch at each other because we’re different, because we go about the pursuit of doing the best we can in different ways, or that one way of doing this is not only better but is one-size-fits-all.
Sometimes, you just get tired of the dumb shit; sometimes, you seriously ask, “Can’t we all just get along?” and then find yourself unable to answer the question because we have a long history of not being able to get along – we can never agree to play nice with each other without someone deciding that play nice sucks, that the way they live is better than anything else someone can think of.
If life is truly a bitch, it’s of our own doing; we’re not the solution we think we are – we are the problem and more so when we can look at another person, find that they’re different in any nitpicking way, and decide to despise the fact this difference exists and they think it shouldn’t because their way – and whatever the fuck that is – is supposedly so superior. It’s not that we don’t try to play nice… but there just seems to be more people willing to play nastily; they bite the hand that’s held out in friendship, will spit in the face of the offer of peaceful coexistence and, yes, we want to destroy that which we don’t understand right along with that which is different than we are. And the evidence of this is all around us.
In the Sexuality Wars, my God, the things we are saying and doing to each other! We can’t seem to accept that we can be different, cannot seem to rejoice in our vast diversity, can’t agree to live and let live. While there are, in fact, many different ways to go about love, sex, and relationships (in particular), we can’t seem to wholly agree that we all, every fucking last one of us, are working toward the exact same goals in life and doing those things which make us happy during this short period of time allowed to us. We can agree that life is, indeed, too short not to live and enjoy it to the fullest extent possible… but we still have a problem when we simply don’t like the way someone else will go about doing it.
We will say that you have the right to live your life… as long as you do it as the majority insists you do it. Marriage, for instance, is supposed to be the best path to happiness… but only under a specific set of circumstances. Sex, too, should only be done under a specific set of conditions and, yes, you should only love the way you’re told to… and if you don’t, well, it’s really suck to be you and we will seek to eradicate you and anyone else who doesn’t do shit the way “it’s supposed to be done.”
We are all after the same things… aren’t we? I want to love, to have a good relationship and you’re damned right, have all the sex I can stand and if it’s not all or always under our single-source and monosexual rules, so much the better. If that’s the way that works for you, by all means, go for it and have big time fun… but don’t fuck with my pursuits or downplay them because I choose not to do these things the same way you chose to; at the end of every motherfucking day that has ever been and will be, we are all pursuing the same damned things until it’s our time not to be here anymore.
No, I’m not going to seek to destroy you for being different from what I am in this but I will feel sad that we can’t seem to coexist where this is concerned… and I’ll write something like this because even I get sick and tired of the dumb shit we create in these things.
