controlling the mating game

via ferdinand, al** says (in a post about sexual age of consent):

“Modern societies are extremely hung up on sex for many reasons. Part of it comes from conservative religious values, but another part of the problem comes from leftist feminist constipative tendencies. Wherever you look, there are always those who want to force their way into your bedroom or hotel room.”

i got news for ya, al. ALL societies are extremely hung up on sex — including even non-human animal societies. and we’re not all hung up on sex “for many reasons” — we’re all hung up on sex for just one reason: because the whole point of life is to reproduce one’s genes (i.e. we’re just “machines for our genes“).

THIS is the reason — and the ONLY reason — why so many people want to “force their way into your bedroom or hotel room.” not because they ultimately care WHAT you do in your bedroom or hotel room (although they might say that, most people don’t know what they’re really about). no. they ultimately care WHO you’re doing in your bedroom or hotel room.

people are concerned about who their kids (most often their female kids) mate with because they’re concerned about how their genes are getting passed on.

they’re concerned that the people their kids (i.e. their genes) are mating with have “good” genes. they’re concerned that the people their kids (i.e. their genes) are mating with will take good care of any offspring (i.e. more of their genes). they’re concerned that all the time and effort and money they spent on raising their kids (i.e. their genes) won’t go to waste.

it’s just social control of reproduction (of genes), that’s all. and it happens in all sorts of societies in all sorts of ways.

**yes. i know that’s not al’s name. (~_^)
