I'm not dead.

Do you think society puts too much pressure on people to be in relationships and/or have children? Do you think this ostracizes people who would be perfectly content to remain single and/or child-free? Is this pressure worse around the holidays?

Yes and Yes.

Re: kids - I think it's fucking ridiculous. There are enough people who want to shoot out tons and tons of kids. They'll keep the species going, don't you worry. Live and let live. If the Duggars want to have 60 kids, congratulate and be happy for them. If someone wants to have a tubal at 18, congratulate and be happy for them. Christ.

Same goes for relationships. Some people want one mate, some want ten, some want none. Why does everyone always have to get up in everyone else's business.

On a side note, if you are my flickr friend I posted a bunch of crap recently.

In honour of the beginning of National Condom Week...

The response to the circumcision programme was so vigorous, so spontaneous, that it got me worried, instead of exciting me. It gnawed at my heart, not quite knowing how to express what it was that worried me specifically, until I happened upon a freshly circumcised fellow. I found him lolling upon a mat, dressed in a loose garment tied toga-style – regular clothing was out of the question at this time of healing – and we fell to conversing about his new condition.

"Mister, these Aids people have spoken for long about fighting the disease, but they had never come up with a practical solution as good as this one. Don’t have sex, don’t do this, don’t do that. Eh, man, how can a young man such as I forfeit sex, eh? And the condoms – where is the sense in putting on a condom when you are having sex? Sex is about feeling, and so no young person likes them!"
