Cock: Not Lewd, Not Disgusting, Not Dirty

"At the Beach" - J.S. Sargent (1915)
Fellow blogger Patrick (Men I've...) posted that artwork. It made me realize where we were when it came to body image. We've been stuck in a quagmire of ground loss since the Newt Gingrich and his "Moral Majority" (no there's a misnomer) grabbed power in the mid-90's; when religion forced itself into government. Now, we've got someone leading the education system who will again try to force us backward.
Pro-religion, vehemently anti-science factions have burrowed in. They want us to feel shame and embarrassment.
We must not "drink their Kool-Aid."
This is not lewd

it is not disgusting
4
it is not dirty.
5
It is what nature provided.
6
Or, to quote the Religious Right: "Made in His Image"
7
Functioning according to "His Design"

I'll be gone for the rest of the week. We are taking a much needed mini-vacation, away from the news, away from the hatred and bigotry our government is trying to instill in us all. The plan is to return on Monday. Have a beautiful weekend. Go out and have some fun

do something that makes you laugh.

Interesting how strong the conditioning is that the naked body should be hidden, and if it's exposed, it's "indecent", and always sexualized.

Have a great time off. Wm

Go. Get some much needed distance from the horror show. It is important to get away to regain perspective and positive energy so we can continue the struggle. I wish you tons of fun, rest and relaxation, brother. Hugs, Licks, and Strokes, AOM

As far as I know your country was founded first and mostly by people trying to escape religious oppression. Why are we always trying to rewrite History in all the countries? America is not a Christian Nation. It is in America where the biggest percentage of people are confusing patriotism and religion, but nevertheless they are only 32% (compared to just 13% of Australians, 15% of Canadians and 15% of Europeans). The Bibles in hotel rooms should be replaced with copies of the Constitution. That would maybe have given an opportunity to who you know for reading it at least one time.
But it is not a lot better somewhere else, it is useless to flee.
Love, hugs and bisous, Jean and Pat.

The biggest downfall of modern man; Religion in Politics. No good can come from either one of them and combined we are all doomed.

Ive thought about going into politics. Its always there in the back of the mind. Getting in is a complicated process for Federal level but the overall effectiveness of getting anything achieved is low. You have more immediate effectiveness at the lower levels. The higher up you go you just get a report of a report of another report. You get no first hand anything.

Getting away from society is a vacation in itself. Have some property out somewhere where you got peace and quiet and switch off from the world. Unless we get wiped out by aliens the planet still going to be there.

@ MFP - The religious right has been openly trying to infuse religion into the government policy for over 20 years now. They will succeed to a certain degree but, overall, I think they will fail. Bisou, mon cheri!

@ T - Yes, I had thought of it as well - was asked by one of our state's more influential politicians to do just that... I thought about it, then said "No thank you." I just don't want to have the minutia of my life examined - I have nothing to hide but, truly, I don't know how these people can live in glass houses the way they must.
