Louis CK just may be ruining the M word and I would like to take a moment to rush to M's defense.
Masturbation may be a word with even more social stigma than just telling someone to "Go Fuck Yourself."
I fuck myself when needed. You should too if needed. Even when you are married. No, especially when you are married. Masturbation is just one of a bezillion things where it is easy to prove you can lump all religions into the same bucket and stereotype them all as evil. All religions get the morality of masturbation wrong. Every. Single. One. Therefore, all religions are evil. See how easy that is? In fact the basis for stereotyping all religions as the same is that they simply pre-date science and therefore get things wrong from just making crap up.
One could make the argument that monkeys flinging poo and doing M in public may just be onto something. :P
I need to explain my definition of atheist just to make clear here about what I mean about evil . My definition of atheist is a much broader than the dictionary version. When I call myself an atheist I mean to say that there is no evidence of anything supernatural and therefore all claims of things supernatural are false from a lack of evidence; including the meaning of evil and the concept we call god. For me, then, the definition of the word 'evil' has no supernatural component. My definition of 'evil' just means knowingly harmful.
Evil by illustration:
- A tree in the wild falling on you and killing naturally from a failing root system is not evil.
- A tree falling on you because someone deliberately knocks it onto you is evil.
- A tree on your property falling on you and killing naturally from a failing root system is evil. We scientifically know that trees need to be inspected regularly for rot. You have a responsibility. If you die from your tree falling on you then you neglected to take care of the problem and you knowingly killed yourself when the tree came crashing down on you.
I say something in all of my Irreni World Scale blog posts and I will repeat it here as well: Irreni is about solutions and not punditry. The solution here is promote healthy M. What Louis CK did was not healthy but don't let that ruin M for ya!
One solution to solving the rampant abuse of power by men of women sexually is to normalize M. Let me be clear what I mean about normalize.
M is a natural body function. Just like Eating. I'm not ashamed or proud of eating. Just do it. Any feelings you have about M are on you.
From a scientific fact view M is healthy. It is much healthier to M than to be sexually repressed. Sexual repression leads to all kinds of unwanted behavior...no good behavior...and is one component of men abusing women. Reject every religious teaching on M. They are all wrong.
Religions pretty much get every claim about human nature exactly wrong, but the claims about human sexuality are particularly evil. Sexual repression has been known to humans long before science ever came along to study what we already knew, one of those self-evident truths. So the religious have always been knowingly harmful to women by espousing something they know causes women harm: sex is only moral within marriage between a man and a women. That's about as evil as evil gets. M should be encouraged whether single or married
And M is not just for single people. Most of the aholes in the news for abuse today are married. Dr. Ruth is a scientist famous for evangelizing M for married couples. One way not to stray is to enjoy M! M is healthy and normal. Have fun. Buy some toys. Enjoy yourself. And if we do this as a soceity, promote M, then by and large we will sexually be a much healthier society; especially from a feminist perspective of reducing male sexual repression and thereby reducing abuse due to sexual repression.
Time for humanity to grow up and throw off the burdensome shackles of failure of all religions regarding shaming M. Be free, free at last, be free at last to manage your sexual energies with M so as to encourage fellowship, dignity, respect and opportunity for women and us all.
Be in control. Of your sexual energy. M.
