stronglikealyon asked: You could write a love story about a demon who falls in love with an angel, and ultimately submits to the truth found in Christ. Of course, it might just come out as one grand allusion to humans falling in love with God.
Yeah, that would be the most likely scenario, but I’m wondering if it’s possible without either character having to change at all. I do have a redemption scenario in mind for a demon that is such an allusion… But it’s not about romantic love so much as learning regret and compassion/empathy for others.
Heh, ever read Preacher?
Why no! Though from the wiki entry, it sounds like it’s not about the relationship of the parents, but only what happens to the kid…
The bitterness you see in a guy when this happens is such a reflection of their resentment for women who aren’t interested in them. Being an actual decent ‘nice’ guy/person means accepting that women will want people that aren’t you, and that its a valid option undeserving of negative judgement or bitterness.
Two biggest defenders of niceguyism that I ever met: One delighted in pointing out every ‘feminine’ thing I ever did as a way to prove that I was ‘feminine’ and thus inferior(because at the same time he mocked femininity and treated it like a disease)
The other was an admitted stalker who used a position of authority to harass women online. Then whined when they didn’t want to date him.
Yeah, women never go for the “Nice Guy.” And there’s always a reason why.
This is something that’s been on my mind lately. I’ve always been bothered by the way liberal / white / sex-postive feminism seems to revolve around exhibitionism of body and sex life. Specifically, I don’t like the way LOVING sex is portrayed as this ultimate feminist act because it shows how liberated and unashamed of sex you are. I get it! You’re giving the patriarchy the finger every time you dress sexy or talk about your orgasms, but you’re at the shallow end of the pool if you think that’s all there is to it.
Some things that need to be discussed:
- male sexual entitlement and aggression
- sex is not empowering for everyone
- sex work is not empowering for everyone
- talking about sex is not empowering for everyone
- reclaiming sexuality is different for everyoneThis list could probably be longer…The last thing I want to say is that my sexuality and body have been subjected to harassment and trespassing. I reclaim both of those things by being private about them and telling people who ask me intrusive questions about either that it’s none of their damn business. Let ‘em think I’m a prude and sexually-repressed - really don’t care. We should be focusing on more important things than making sure feminism is sexy enough.
katybug87 asked: The Bible doesn't say they didn't have sex before the fall. Just that birth became painful. God created Eve to be Adam's companion, while he was lonely. Sex was created for more than procreation. It's part of companionship.
Well, no, it’s just that Genesis 4 is the first time it’s explicitly mentioned(after the fall). Companionship doesn’t always mean sex either, even if I agree that sex isn’t solely about procreation.
windy-castle said: maybe they were too busy for sex at the time, haha. or maybe they did and it simply didn’t lead to kids yet and therefore wasn’t mentioned. we don’t how much time passed between the fall and eve’s introduction to adam in any case.
They did have all those animals to name. But the way I read Genesis 4:1 is that that’s the first time they had sex, or started having sex.
Question with 2 notes
windy-castle asked: hmm but god never told adam and eve not to touch each other. in genesis 1:28 he tells them to "be fruitful and multiply" which implies that filling the earth with their offspring was one of the things they were expected to do (along with taking care of the earth and other creatures that lived on it)
Heh. Yeah, I agree that does seem to be the implication. I’m not sure why they didn’t, but you’re right.
