Sex is such a ‘hot’ area within our culture it’s difficult to know when to stop. There are many other aspects we could touch upon: gender issues, cross-gender issues, our responsibilities to our society, parents, peers, children, mates. The fundamentals underpinning many of these issues are the same fundamentals that drive many problems today, such as: What defines the successful life? What does it mean to fulfil our individual roles as a man or woman, both to ourselves, and our society?
There are no easy answers to these questions. That’s why most people turn to their religion or other mystic source. Our religious leaders have been addressing these issues for thousands of years, some successfully.
It’s time for science to lend a hand. That’s why I write, and why you read. There is a way for us to look at these problems in a systematic fashion that forges understanding and progress.
It has to begin somewhere, and that beginning is yourself.
Who ARE you?
Do you see yourself as a sexual being, a political being, a biological entity, or something lesser, or greater? Where do you see your lifeline going? In that great tapestry of ALL LIFE, which thread is yours?
There are two young women out there who started this series, and I hope that they survive the tumult of today’s society to become happy, productive human beings. I fear that their misunderstandings and our lack of general knowledge of behavior will instead create bitter and under-performing individuals.
These two women represent millions of other young women who have not had the courage or the opportunity to raise their voices. I also write for them, and hope for them. I certainly hope that you will find some time to help them, in your own way.
