MY recollection of our national history, as I was taught it, and as I have observed it for 87 years, is that we came here as victims of prejudice and/or cruelty by other nations, in search of a land whereon we could establish a nation of our own, built largely according to noble Christian values, a land of our own (after annihilating or imprisoning a great many of the previous inhabitants) many of whose descendents live—to this very day—in prisons without walls, euphemistically called reservations. In the end, what I am trying to present below is a slightly different view of this great land as we know it.
One of our most popular sports, at this time in history, is hating homosexuals and lesbians. Oh, it does our Christian hearts good to try to convert them, but that argument either does not persuade them; or, if it does, it assures them of lives alone and without love that is best expressed by sexual activity—as is the case with us lucky heterosexuals.
Ah! But we have forgotten the most numerous among us—those who, either by choice or lack of luck, have no way of expressing and answering their own sexual needs. And it is the dilemma of those in this group which I wish to address.
So far as I know, there is no relief for the members of this group except through masturbation!—a word which no one is willing to say, read, hear, or even think. And to make matters worse, as far as understanding or sympathy are concerned, there is probably not a living soul among us--normal, heterosexual, gay, lesbian, or child who had discovered his sexual organs—who, at one time, or another, or another, or another, has not masturbated.
Give that a little thought!
