Greasing The Slope

Slippery SlopeThe Slippery Slope is generally considered to be a fallacy. It is an argument in which a person asserts that some event must inevitably follow from another, prior event without any providing any argument for the inevitability of the event in question. In most cases, there are a series of steps or gradations between the eventual event and the one being argued against but no reason is given as to why the intervening steps or gradations will simply be bypassed or enacted in their turn.

In general I agree. The Slippery Slope is a fallacy and, much more often than not, sloppy thinking. But what if we’re greasing the slope as it were?

Many laws, especially those dealing with sexual partnering, sexual acts, and sexual relationships are wholly or primarily based upon societal mores and cultural “prejudices.” Many of those laws that once had valid scientific rationales at one time have lost those rationals due to medical advances. Others had and still have outcome-based basis in the effects such things have upon the titular children of such unions, yet those negative consequences have been ignored in favor of a new ideology.

As you chip away at those laws that are based upon societal mores and cultural “prejudices” or apply new societal mores and cultural “prejudices” to existing situations you can make it so that each increase in permissiveness makes the next incremental increase that much more likely through normalizing or “main streaming” what was once unthought-of, abhorrent, and/or outre.

Western, especially American, jurisprudence also has to be taken into account because it’s inherently based upon Common Law and under the US interpretation of such court cases are decided based upon prior argument, precedents, and judicial pronouncements rather than solely on legislative enactments. in other words, arguments and verdicts in prior, similar court cases can be compelling or even binding precedents in current and future cases.

The Slope As It Was, Is, and Will Probably Be

Past Present Future
Miscegenation Sodomy Gay Marriage Polygamy
Fornication Incest
Adultery Pedophilia
BDSM

Progress Is Opinion. Progression Is Mathematics

The battle to overturn the laws against miscegenation was long and hard-fought but it was victorious. But many of the same arguments that were successfully used Loving v. Virginia to end those “Jim Crow” statutes were later used in Lawrence v. Texas to abolish or make largely enforceable the various laws against: Sodomy, Fornication, Adultery, and violent sexual fetishism (BDSM). In turn, arguments from both Loving and Lawrence have been used to legalize Gay Marriage in various states and to overturn DOMA at the federal level.

Each set of court cases added their levels of grease to the slope, making it increasingly slippery. Hence, there is no logical reason not to predict that this progression will continue and that these increasingly entrenched arguments and precedents will be used to legalizing polygamy, incest, and some forms and/or levels of pedophilia.

The Savage Queer

Dan Savage - Queer Activist and BullyDan Savage is queer, a fanatical queer activist, and a bully of the worst and most cowardly sort – the sort that lacks all personal and physical courage and who hides behind the system and the various authorities while he’s bullying his chosen victims, Christians

We’re all familiar with his cowardly assault upon Rick Santorum and his attempts at extortion.

But Savage doesn’t limit his venomous behavior to grown men; he likes kids too. Most recently he attacked a group of high school students at National High School Journalism Conference sponsored by the Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association.

Savage doesn’t seem to make any distinction between grown men and children. Makes one wonder how far that lack of distinction goes – and how young.

When a hundred or so of the students, fed up with Savage’s Christian-bashing attacks, exercised the only recourse they were indoctrinated to believe was open to them and left the auditorium, Savage decided to verbally assault them directly.

You can tell the Bible guys in the hall they can come back now because Im done beating up the Bible, Savage said as other students hollered and cheered. Its funny as someone who is on the receiving end of beatings that are justified by the Bible how pansy-assed people react when you push back.

It’s easy to believe this is odd behavior from a person supposedly against bullying but, sadly, his isn’t odd behavior at all. Liberals of all stripes, and queers in particular, are rabidly intolerant and prone to bullying those who hold differing opinions. They’re just not the normal, honest bullies who are willing to put themselves at risk to do their bullying.

It’s axiomatic that all bullies are cowards but Savage’s breed are more cowardly than the norm. If someone stands up to a normal sort of bully, the bully normally backs down. Savage’s sort, like all Liberals, will instead claim that they’re the victim and hide behind the various laws and authorities they’ve suborned and turned into shields for their behavior.

Dan Savage doesn’t have the basic courage to come up to normal American men, out of reach of immediate rescue, and spout his shit. He knows that we’d beat him beyond repair and might give him and his husband a reminder of exactly why they’re called faggots.
