Sex and Civilization

Something that women just do not understand about us men is our sex drive. Our brains are hard-wired for sex and marinated in testosterone. Sex is on our minds all the time. Believe me, you think you understand but you don't. You can't. Your genetic prime directive is babies. Ours is procreation. Once you've had your babies your sex drive dwindles to nothing. Ours never fades. The flesh may become weak but the spirit is always willing.

So what do men do with all that passion and drive when there's no sexual outlet? They design, they build, they achieve. Go outside and look around. Everything you see was designed and built by men, from the car you drive to the gasoline that powers it to the garage it's parked in to the road upon which it travels. And don't get all hot and bothered and post that women achieve as well. For every woman who achieves something of note there are a hundred men. And every job that is devoted to actual construction of actual stuff is utterly dominated by men. Women sit behind desks and push paper and gossip.

What would happen if men had the same sex drive as women? The answer is - nothing. No cars, no buildings, no battleships, no jet planes, no moon rockets. No Ninth Symphony or First Concerto or Rhapsody in Blue. No Principia Mathematica or Harmonices Mundi or Almagest. No plays of Shakespeare or King James Bible or Iliad. No Great Pyramids at Giza or Colosseum in Rome or Great Library in Alexandria. No Star Wars or Citizen Kane or Metropolis. Not even whatever crap you watch on TV at night. Or TVs. Nothing. Zilch. Nada.

The male sex drive built civilization. If not for the male sex drive we'd have never come down from the trees.

But look what we've achieved. By erecting the most prosperous society in the history of mankind, where poverty is virtually unknown and almost every need of every citizen is met, we've built a world where women no longer need men. The State is surrogate provider and husband and father. Men, having constructed the State, are now superfluous. Even worse, men are actively excluded as not just unwanted but undesirable or even dangerous - from schools, from playgrounds, from HR departments. Exiles from the world they created.

And thus the West falls, not with a nuclear bang but a feminist chortle. Enjoy it while it lasts.

When I read yesterday's post, I was going to point out the inconsistency of wanting to do the Lord's will, and at the same time, wanting to get laid while not married. When it comes to following the Lord's will, sometimes we miss the obvious. I've done it myself. As adults, it is easy to tell ourselves that sex outside of marriage is OK, in spite of what the Bible says.

However, after reading today's post, I've changed my mind. You gotta get laid! Early and often! Then maybe your brain will start working again!

(A career in software design and development, plus 4 college degrees, plus full professor of computer science, and that was somehow accomplished by pushing paper and gossipping! Wow! How did I do it?)

might I add, you sat in classrooms for 15 years being taught MAN stuff by MEN relating to concepts that were wholly invented by MEN in classrooms with high majorities of MEN who went on to fill careers in highly MAN dominated industries. You can always count on a ditz to trumpet how she's the exception to the rule, blind to the underlying truths at work.

And how many years were you married? Don't you know the difference between sex and making love?

As for thinking about sex all the time...the Bible tells you what to think on and sex is not on the list. Sounds like you and your ilk need a life. My married male friends are in love with the wife for an average of 2-3 dozen years and have an active and pleasing sex life together...and sex is not on their mind constantly.

Seems as though you run with the wrong crowd. What female warped you? Was she the one who gossiped?

Your reader was RUDE to Girl Programmer.

Do you drag your arms while walking?!

YOU are in some serious need of help.

What would your mother, grandmother, sister, daughter think of this post?

OR did you post this just to get a rise from people?

Spirited disagreement with Southern Man or other commenters is welcome but ad hominen attacks are not. Calling someone you've never met "ugly" because you disagree with them won't fly here. Such commments will be (and already have been) deleted.

After contemplating this post for a few days, I would like to ask Southern Man for a new post that clarifies a sentence or two at the end of it. Here is a partial quote:

"....almost every need of every citizen is met, we've built a world where women no longer need men. The State is surrogate provider and husband and father."

This seems to imply that men are ONLY needed for their money. Is that what you mean? And do you mean in general, or inside of marriage and marriage-type relationships?

If so, that seems insulting to men.

Re GP's last comment: men do better when they're wanted and needed by their women. One could argue that the world was a better place when a woman needed a man to take care of her (and not just financially); that tends to bring out the best in him. Obviously we're not going back to that, but it may be that if (as a woman) you want to bring out the best in your guy, let him know that you not only want him, but need him.
