If he died and was granted eternal happiness, I do believe he’d find reason to be miserable. Come, Merlin, we’ve triumphed. Osgar could have easily killed you. But he didn’t, did he? [-] Are you feeling all right, Merlin? Quite, my lord. Only, more and more I find your face resembles the back end of a cat. See, you don’t even laugh at my jokes any more. Seriously, I haven’t seen you smile these past three days. I’m not sure there is a great deal to smile about. [-] I am asking you, Merlin, man to man. [-] What would you do? In my place? Me? I’m just a lackey, a maker of beds. Lackeys can be wise. It’s not like you to be silent.

Human beings took our animal need for palatable food … and turned it into chocolate souffles with salted caramel cream. We took our ability to co-operate as a social species … and turned it into craft circles and bowling leagues and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We took our capacity to make and use tools … and turned it into the Apollo moon landing. We took our uniquely precise ability to communicate through language … and turned it into King Lear.

None of these things are necessary for survival and reproduction. That is exactly what makes them so splendid. When we take our basic evolutionary wiring and transform it into something far beyond any prosaic matters of survival and reproduction … that’s when humanity is at its best. That’s when we show ourselves to be capable of creating meaning and joy, for ourselves and for one another. That’s when we’re most uniquely human.

And the same is true for sex. Human beings have a deep, hard-wired urge to replicate our DNA, instilled in us by millions of years of evolution. And we’ve turned it into an intense and delightful form of communication, intimacy, creativity, community, personal expression, transcendence, joy, pleasure, and love. Regardless of whether any DNA gets replicated in the process.

Why should we see this as sinful? What makes this any different from chocolate souffles and King Lear?

When men imagine a female uprising, they imagine a world in which women rule men as men have ruled women.

Sally Kempton

It’s been apparent to me for a while that most men can’t really imagine “equality.”  All they can imagine is having the existing power structure inverted.

I cannot decide whether this shows how unimaginative they are, or shows how aware they must be of what they do in order to so deeply fear having it turned on them. (via lepetitmortpourmoi)
