<<Liberals usually have their own list of situations in which they want to regulate or prohibit sex and marriage. They just take these situations for granted, while arbitrarily proclaiming sex and marriage to be "rights" in other cases. It's all very amusing, really.
- Seattle Pioneer

Yes, I guess it would be rather amusing to people who live in an asexual world. But for people who live in a normal world that includes sex it's not so funny. If one were a normal human being with normal drives and sexual feelings it's not amusing at all. If you were being judged by whom you happen to love it would lose it's humor rather quickly.


My point, Art, is that many in both the left and the right want to regulate sexual behavior and such things as marriage. There are groups both would would want to restrict from marrying or having sex, and others they would like to make privileged classes, protected from regulation and restriction.

Anyone who is the object of such regulation probably feels put upon, just as you suggest ---but people who are the object of such restrictions on their behavior usually feel put upon.

That's the nature of government, Art. Among other things, it prohibnits some activities and encourages others, often for rather arbitrary reasons.
