In doing research for my book, Sex in the Name of God, I happened across some interesting words and ways.
For bible tidbits regarding homosexuality, which got lumped into the chapter called Beasts and Buttholes, I frequently did synonym searches for homosexual and gay, as well as penis and balls. The results list was staggering and more than amusing.
Of course fag and faggot made the grade. Older folks might recall common usage of the word fag to be a cigarette (drag a fag), and faggot was a bundle of sticks.
Hopefully this is the closest I will ever come to having this type of footage available online. My book, Sex in the Name of God, is complete and available for purchase.
After looking into some options, I felt an explainer video was needed. People need to understand this book covers real bible passages in a humorous fashion, because scripture is often ridiculous when it comes to the subject of sex and human relations.
Off to a cheapo website I went looking for entrepreneurs. After contacting a few folks who said, oh hell no, I posted an inquiry. Out of the responses, I purchased several, knowing full well my money might go down the toilet.
Religion intrigues me because a small group of people who follow a leader, and ascribe to certain practices, is often viewed as a cult. Add in millions of people and suddenly this is a norm.
I had never read the bible before. Besides wanting to know what people were really following, I was curious to learn about the basics. How would sex and politics be treated within a religious guideline? Well, I found out.
The bible: Wow. It’s disturbing.
Putting all murder and mayhem aside, I can now say that if you like sex, and lots of it, then the bible is for you. There was more than enough material to write a book about the juiciest parts; a whooping 197 pages.
The whole cis / trans thing has gotten way out of hand. This stems from chemistry where a molecule has the same components, but in a different arrangement, often making for different properties.
The same can be said of men and women: Different arrangements with different chemicals flowing through their bodies, and different roles which vary widely according to the culture they live in.
Yes, there are many different types of people and sexual persuasions. There are straight people, bisexuals, lesbians, gay men, transgender persons, and transsexual persons, including true hermaphrodites physically and genetically, and the list grows on. Nowadays you can select your life altering chemicals.
The Discovery series I Am Jazz about Jazz Jennings, who was born as a boy but identifies as a girl, is quite fascinating and very revealing to the point of having an explicit content disclaimer even though footage comes directly from the mouth of this teenaged transgender.
Imagine going through puberty, awkward as it is, and then having to deal with everyone constantly asking about your sexuality and genitals.
Jazz is trying to transition to being a full blown, sexually functional woman with parts to match.
I’m coming out
I want the world to know
Got to let it show
I’m coming out
–Diana Ross, Beloved singer of the GBT and maybe Q of the LBGTQ community.
Attention world, I am officially coming out. That’s right. I am a cisgender and I’m owning it, girl. It explains me to a T, or rather to a C.
In other words, I identify with the gender assigned to me at birth.
I first learned of the cis / trans situation when studying chemistry. Cis = same. Trans = opposite. How wonderful that this has translated to biology!
