Science and Sex

Poking around VenusPlusX’s Library recently, I rediscovered many “papers” Dan Massey wrote. They were not posts, just part of the infrastructure holding together our concept of cosmic destiny and the critical, central role that our sexuality plays in finding out, for each of us, what our personal destiny is.

FeatureMuch of this work is tagged with our term, Transhuman Erotic Freedom, to describe this destiny-sexuality connection. Combined with a 10-part series, A Course In Immortality, these works constitute the Appendices of a forthcoming book on this subject.

The somewhat technical/scientific approach to some the work in the Library reflects our stipulation that things cosmic, spiritual, or otherwise not of this world, our emotions for example, are substantiated only with some rigorous scientific standards. It’s not a matter of needing proof; it’s a matter of showing proof.

Unknowables can be figured out, even this cosmic-erotic connection to which we’ve devoted 40 years of our work.

Take for example, in the provocative and prescient, I Am an Intersex Bisexual Transgender and So Are You: A thought experiment in the development and socialization of gender, Dan dissects exactly why confusion and conflict still exists.

“This discussion demonstrates that the social conventions of sex, gender, and normativity are highly simplified and basically very ignorant ideas. It is amazing that they have persisted to the present day. This seems to have resulted from a basic unwillingness to apply rational analysis to the development of appropriate social models and to abandon obviously outmoded models of reality.

“The manifold difficulties human society experiences in dealing with matters concerning sexual orientation and gender identity (SO+GI) as a broad class of related medical and social issues stem directly from a failure to apply critical observation and rational thought to evidence at hand. And this problem does not begin with either the SO or the GI issue, but rather with the basic biology of sexual differentiation.”

The paper goes on to provide equality activists with the science behind the issues they are advocating for. It’s another tool for your tool belt.
