In my second post, I said we all want to be heroes, part of a large, noble enterprise, defeating evil and fighting for good. Racism, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia, they're all tiny problems in real life, but if we magnify them wildly, we can fight them with no risk to ourselves. At the same time, we can make believe we're heroes.
In this one, we'll deal with the question, "Why make transphobia a cause?" I would argue that the whole thing is an effort to eliminate any and all sex-based sins by pushing the boundaries of what is acceptable so far past our particular fetishes that anything we enjoy is seen as utterly mundane and normal.
Sex is a lizard activity, one of our basic drives. Eating, surviving and sex are about all lizards want to do. That tiny, core part of our brain, the part that drives our evolutionary impulses, obsesses on these things. It's why sex is so much fun. As the worry about eating and surviving become more and more distant, our lizard brains have more time to dive deeper into our sexual urges.
Also, as technology improves, the ability of gizmos, gadgets, elixirs and potions to give us new types of pleasures and eliminate the consequences of old ones increases. I read on Twitter that developers are using AI to create the ultimate oral stimulation machine. That makes sense as do ever more realistic sex dolls. We're pursuing the ultimate orgasm while our psyches are continually redefining what that means. It's a never-ending quest.
The only fly in the ointment is objective morality, specifically religious morality. No matter what happens technologically, those pious killjoys will try to stamp out all of our newfound sexual fun. There are two, complimentary ways to deal with them.
- Incrementally redefine what is moral. Porn isn't so bad, is it? Threesome porn isn't so bad. A little violence in the porn isn't so bad, after all, it's all make-believe. Gays, bisexuals, threesomes, whatever floats your boat, if no one is getting hurt, what's the big? Once one thing is accepted, find the next thing farther out and show that it's not much worse.
- Swarm-attack anyone who stands their ground when it comes to sexual morality. They must be smashed if we're to push the boundaries. The only thing that can prevent us from having all of our fetishes accepted is someone who says, "This far and no farther!" and really means it. They must be obliterated publicly as a warning to others.
You might not be into snuff porn. Your particular fetish might be substantially less deviant, but you want snuff to be accepted. If snuff porn is accepted, then there is a large buffer zone between the morality borders and you. You're safe and you can enjoy your weirdness in peace.
And that is why you must agree that a 6' 8" man is a girl.
