We each have a primal sexual drive that cannot be legislated or
Women are not property.
The biological nature of human beings is that of two sexes. Virtually
every creature on the earth is divided into male and female and to
procreate they must come together.
Even though society encourages procreation in order to perpetuate itself,
it simultaneously attempts to control sexual relationships in order to
promote social order.
Societies pass laws to try to eliminate the potential individual conflicts
that result from sexual attraction. For instance, societies designate
certain individuals as legally married and punish those who would
interfere with that relationship. However, no law can put an end to the
primal sexual drive which very often focuses outside the marriage.
Marriage is also a means whereby society attempts to distribute wealth
in an orderly manner. There are many logical reasons to have sexual
laws. The majority of these laws relate to the elimination of chaos and
conflict in a society.
However, the fact remains that sexual attraction is neither logical nor
intellectual. Sex between human beings is a highly emotionally charged
experience. Few humans come together simply to produce children.
Humans come together sexually as a result of emotional needs and
biological drives. Sex is one of the strongest human impulses.
Sex has little to do with logic. When the attraction is great enough
between humans, no potential sacrifice of status or power or the
incurring of social prejudice or criminal punishment can deter it.
In addition, a person's sexual preference generally has little to do with
his or her overall contributions to society. Creative men and women are
both celibate and promiscuous, heterosexual, bi-sexual and homosexual.
Further, a certain percentage of society has always been homosexual
and that will never change. All the prejudice and legislation in the world
will never end it. It is a need inherent in some individuals.
Lastly, a certain percentage of society will always be polygamous. A person
may be legally married but extramarital affairs create a polygamous
We need to stop trying to legislate the morality of sexual attraction with
the exception of adult/child relationships and rape. No adult should be
allowed to sexually influence a child or to sexually force themselves
Sexual attraction is emotional and biological and it can never be
successfully legislated by social or religious institutions. We need to
enact liberal laws that allow people who are attracted to each other live
the life that is congruent with their emotional needs.
When emotional needs are satisfied, an individual has a better chance of
achieving inner peace and harmony and, consequently, society has a
better chance of achieving peace between its members.

There is no logical basis for continuing to discriminate against women.
Women are not property, nor are they inferior to men. Women as a
whole are generally physically weaker than men but that is not a valid
reason to subordinate women in any society. Men and women are
complements of each other and the sooner that women are allowed to
assume an equal role in society, the sooner we will have a whole society.
When the yoke of frustration due to sexual prejudice is removed from
the backs of women and they are granted a truly equal status in society,
a great wave of inner peace among women will harmonize the earth
with the love and nurturing which is their nature and their collective
love will counter-balance the innate aggressiveness of the masculine
orientation which presently dominates the planet.
Inner peace comes in the knowing that it is all right to pursue our
sexual preferences and no one in society can, in good conscience, judge
another for satisfying his or her innate sexual needs which are a unique,
indivisible, biological and emotional part of each and every one of us.
Inner peace comes to women when they are allowed an equal status in
