On a sexual world

Another great read from Greta Chrstina. Excerpt:
"I would like us to treat sexuality - and differences in sexualities - much the same way we treat music.

"We have a basic acceptance of the idea that different people like different kinds of music. We may strongly dislike the music other people like. We may even make some unfair personal judgments about the kind of person who likes, say, opera, or country, or rap music, or Barry Manilow. But as long as people aren't forcing their music on us, we accept - even if grudgingly - their basic right to listen to whatever music they like.

"I'd like to see us do the same with different sexual tastes. If people are personally grossed out by homosexuality, or SM, or furries, or whatever, I certainly would recognize their right to their gross-out. I just want people to see their gross-outs as an aesthetic judgment and not a moral one."

Check out the rest here.
