So what should we expect to creep out of the perversion bin next for mainstream consumption as OK behavior ? NAMBLA's or any other pedophilia groups' agenda, arguing that grown men should be able to have sex with juvenile males / children ? After all, the ancient Greeks indulged in such "natural" acts, and we are soooo much more culturally advanced (in our smugly hip, sophistication) than they were.
How about sex with beasts ? Sex with daughters and sons, nephews and nieces ?
By comparison, ideas such as polygamy seem somewhat docile. But maybe that is the ultimate point: like the frog in the slowly warming pot, culture tends to not notice subtle shifts in the acceptance of perverted behavior if they incrementally advanced slowly over time, and if the propagandizing of the urged, acceptable perversion is always differentiated from more extreme examples . . . from the bin.
And yet the promoters of polygamy on TH are the "conservatives". They claim consistency, but only by ignoring the equal protection basis for monogamous gay marriages, a legal basis that does not apply to polygamy, frog on bird, man on Santorum, or whatever other unique relationships their fertile minds can imagine.
