Sharing articles

I sadly don't keep up with the news much.. I rarely watch TV. But sometimes I do come across news articles, although not as often as I wish. Or, just articles in general. It doesn't have to be current news-related. Are there any interesting articles you've read lately that you would like to share? emot-keke Anywhere around the world.

I just found this one. I was doing some research for my Child Psychology term paper that I need to start on, on analyzing children's artwork.

http://www.salon.com/mwt/feature/1999/0 … index.html

It's really sad.. and it has an interesting point. Children who are used to seeing bombs and blood, drawing happy things like flowers all of the time.. is this healthy, or unhealthy? Are they hiding from reality, or just simply adapting?

Double-whammy. Homosexuality and incest.

Re: Sharing articles

The first article is food for thought, definitely. I generally don't think that escapism is bad as long as it's not constant, but if it is constant, who knows.

The responses to the second article amused me, because all of them missed the point that heterosexual sex does not necessarily mean reproduction.

Re: Sharing articles

Well, for the first article, it's like the kids from the concentration camp during World War II. They're dying, but they're drawing butterflies (studied about that in Middle School). Maybe it's not an escape. Maybe it's a yearning for a happier future. Whether or not it happens is another story.

As for the second article... I just want to tell those people... give it a rest... Just because the majority prefers the company of opposite sex and has no blood relations to each other whatsoever doesn't mean gays or incests or polygamy should be viewed as if they're disease or abomination. How would they like it if one day, the "minorities" rise up and make heterosexual, non-family related couples illegal?

Yeah.. If it's constant, I'd worry. I'm not even sure if the artwork the children are doing reflects that behavior, or if the children are just adapting and being more optimistic.

Oh, word. Even if I was in a heterosexual relationship, I wouldn't reproduce. Sex isn't just about teh babiez.

That's a good point. emot-keke I certainly hope that is it. Although, I guess you really can't tell unless you interview the children about their artwork, and observe their responses.

Now that would be amusing. emot-dance

Re: Sharing articles

The second article was really interesting. Why do we live in such a xenophobic country? Why are we afraid of something that is different? If you ask me, love is love. It doesn't have eyes. It can't tell if you're man or woman, black or white, stranger of sister. I'm not trying to promote incest, but I did always wonder why in reality people are so much more opposed to it than they are homosexuality. They aren't the same thing, and I'm not suggesting that they are, but it is something to contemplate. If I fell in love with my best friend, it would be "morally wrong", but I could be accepted by some people, and I could even be wed. If I fell in love with my brother, it would be "morally wrong", very very VERY few people would accept me, and there is no way in hell I could get married. Incest can cause birth defects, but if you are gay or lesbian, you can't produce offspring. In society's eyes, I guess no child is better than a mentally ill child.

Wow, this is a really tough question. I'm going to have to discuss this with some people. Nice job SleepDebtFairy , getting me all worked up. emot-mad

Aww, I'm sorry. emot-redface ..actually, I'm not. etc-love Yay! Let me know what people say. emot-dance

As for the incest/homosexuality issue.. yeah, I've noticed that a lot, too. When I think about if incest is wrong or right, I can't really say for sure. My favourite fandom pairing happens to be gay and incest, but they're.. a really different case. And I also like Miki/Kozue. But, besides that.. I guess the main issue with incest isn't the birth defects. After all, not every heterosexual couple has babies, and some incestuous couples are homosexual and can't have babies. And the risk of birth defects with incestuous couples isn't as high as people think.

It seems the main issue is "confusing relationships". If you start a romantic relationship with your brother or sister, than are they your lover or brother/sister? Or both? But what happens if you break up? Starting romantic relationships with a close friend is awkward enough, but.. wow..

But, in general, I'm not going disapprove of someone in an incestuous relationship. It's their decision. Although, I do have to admit, parent/child relationships would squick me a lot..

You know, the morality of incest isn't something I've ever thought about, yet it's a topic that deserves thought.  I think we can dismiss the birth defects issue out of hand; people who get cheesed off about incest would still get cheesed off if the participants were using protection.  I'm also not fond of the "God says it's wrong" line of argument.  That pretty much leaves the "confusing relationships" issue.

I think I agree with SleepDebtFairy.  Sleeping with your boss sets off power struggles galore and makes breaking up very complicated; I can only imagine that sleeping with your brother or sister would get even more complicated, and could easily screw up the whole family unit.  I don't see why it should be called morally wrong, though, just a Very Bad Idea.  Sleeping with your child falls more in the morally wrong column; it bears a striking resemblance to a certain variety of rape, in that it's a forced choice for the child.  Sleeping with a cousin... honestly, if you're not living as siblings, I don't see the problem.

Anyway, I should probably post a link to an article, huh?  http://www.episcopalchurch.org/3577_84148_ENG_HTM.htm

I'll summarize.  The Episcopalian Church, aka the American affiliate of the Anglican Church, is run in part by the House of Bishops.  That House assembled a couple weeks ago and issued a proclamation that the international Anglican Church is not happy with.  To wit:

"We proclaim the Gospel of what God has done and is doing in Christ, of the dignity of every human being, and of justice, compassion, and peace. We proclaim the Gospel that in Christ there is no Jew or Greek, no male or female, no slave or free. We proclaim the Gospel that in Christ all God's children, including women, are full and equal participants in the life of Christ's Church. We proclaim the Gospel that in Christ all God's children, including gay and lesbian persons, are full and equal participants in the life of Christ's Church. We proclaim the Gospel that stands against any violence, including violence done to women and children as well as those who are persecuted because of their differences, often in the name of God. The (Primates') Communiqué is distressingly silent on this subject. And, contrary to the way (others) have represented us, we proclaim a Gospel that welcomes diversity of thought and encourages free and open theological debate as a way of seeking God's truth. If that means that others reject us and communion with us, as some have already done, we must with great regret and sorrow accept their decision."

The birth defects argument usually seems like just an excuse people use, and the "God says it is wrong" argument doesn't hold any water to me - in the bible, if Adam and Eve were the first man and woman, wouldn't their children have to make offspring with each other too?

But, yes. The confusing relationships thing is very tricky and dangerous. Although, I think it's more of a problem with siblings and cousins you're raised with. Siblings and cousins you're raised apart from.. well, they would biologically be related to you, but they wouldn't *seem* like it as much.

I've also heard somewhere that we tend to not become sexually attracted to people we were raised with when we were children. Such as our siblings, and even childhood friends. This generally seems true.. probably to prevent confusing relationships by becoming sexually attracted to a sibling?

There's an example I can think of for that. I have a few cousins, and one of them is a male who's a year older than me. I only see my cousins about once every few years. I happened to have thought my cousin was attractive. (Although, nothing more than that. We don't really have anything in common) Shouldn't I not think that if I'm related to him? The answer is that I can still find him attractive because I was never raised with him, so I never really associated family-like feelings to him other than my mom telling me that he's my cousin.

That makes me smile too. emot-keke It makes me happy that when I was a Christian, I was an Episcopalian. (The "laid-back Catholics", or something like that, if I remember correctly) I really wish there were more Christians like that who would follow the example of love and peace that Jesus promotes.

The most successful genes are the ones whose bearers have lots of kids who survive to reproduce.  Kids with birth defects are less likely to reproduce, so people whose genes attracted them to family members had fewer descendants.  (The turbulent relationship thing may or may not have anything to do with it; it depends largely on whether turbulent relationships mean you have fewer kids.)  To maximize offspring, the body uses a couple different indexes to figure out whether the babe/hunk you're checking out is a family member, including whether you were raised with them, what they smell like, etc.  All else equal, if they're a relative, you're less likely to be attracted to them.  But if you are attracted to them, why should you let your evolutionary history dictate your priorities?

See, when I read this headline, I thought it said "Policewoman Posed As Teenage Boy, Lived With Girl."  I thought maybe it was a warped variation on the classic "policewoman dresses up as a prostitute and arrests johns" bit.  I don't know what made this seem so funny; it must be three o'clock at night or something.

No way.  I specifically remember that in the State of the Union a couple years ago George Bush specifically said that he would not tolerate experimentation with creating human-animal hybrids.

Thats for sure, Sinfest beats most of those other newspaper comicstrips hands down. 

Garfield is only occassionally funny and some of other older strips tend to be rehashed ever few years and they keep posting Peanuts even thou the guy who drew them requested that they not make new ones after he died.

I wouldn't mind seeing Questionable Content as well but somehow I don't think the world at large is ready for Sexy Losers yet emot-tongue

Meh. Charles Schulz requested that they not draw new ones but he never said anything about rerunning the strips, which is what they're doing right now. I don't have a problem with it, because Peanuts is one of the strips my mom used to teach my sister and I to read. etc-love She learned to read from it too, so it's kind of a family thing, I guess...

Oh god, I'd die to see Sexy Losers right next to Family Circus. etc-love etc-love etc-love etc-love etc-love etc-love etc-love etc-love And Sinfest next to Dennis the Mence. emot-keke


The first time you looked at her curves you were hooked
And the glances you took, took hold of you and demanded that you stay
And sunk in their teeth, bit your heart and released
Such a charge that you need another touch, another taste, another fix

Ack. I had to post this article. emot-aaa

“They tried to cure me of being gay” - http://www.glamour.com/news/articles/20 … rentPage=2

It's amazing how people try to "cure" homosexuality, and how those camps don't work at all. Reminds me of one of my favourite movies, "But I'm a Cheerleader", which is a satire of those camps.
