So once again a toy manufacturer has put out a doll that has me siding with “the outraged Christian groups”. And yet I had a pretty hedonistic youth before I became a parent, and I enjoyed it, and I hope to experience a little more hedonism one day when our nest is empty.
If anything I want more sexual freedom for the world not less, I want people to be able to have sex with as many people as they want, to have sex with people of whatever gender they’re attracted to, to dress up as Barbie while they do it if they want. I just don’t want us all to be forced to follow a porn script when we have sex, and I especially don’t want our porn notions of sex to take over children’s lives so goddamn much.
Post script: I think I was too brief in writing this post so I’ve elaborated and explored my thoughts on this issue in the comments. Thanks for the motivation, commenters.
