Entitled to your own choices

2017-03-22 06:03

EVERY human being is entitled to choose her or his sexuality without unwanted sexual attention being inflicted on her or him.

Whether one is homosexual, low, medium or high heterosexual, lay celibate, lesbian, religious celibate or transgendered, one should be democratically allowed to one’s choice of sexuality without harassment by boys or men or girls or women.

Sadly, I do not believe I, or anyone for that matter, will see the end of rape, gang rape, sodomy or gang sodomy in my or our lifetime(s) because of human nature and sexuality.

In my opinion, this is a damming indictment of the human race, as is war and any other form of violence which wreck our world, especially the Third World.

Not all women grow up wanting to experience love, sex and marriage, contrary to the patriarchal belief or myth, and these women should be given the space to paint their lives as they so desire, unfettered by the chains of some marriages, societal condemnation and gossip.

On the subject of marriage, perhaps Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre got it right by having an unmarried relationship­, living in separate apartments in Paris and not having any offspring.
