Anonymous, I'm flattered! Although to be honest, I'd rather be fighting in the war than having people starting the war over me.
....and I don't think it's creepy unless you plan on physically stalking me out and attempting kidnap me, murder me, and/or leave my body in a cellar somewhere. That may end badly for you, because I am armed with knives at all times, and am only a few months away from renewing my gun permit.
I like my second amendment rights. <3
I also like antique firearms.
I had a funny thought recently. It sort of relates to my own personal moral code--basically I believe that if you are in doubt about what to do in a particular situation, you should look to the animal kingdom for guidance. Are animals doing it? If they are, chances are it's ok for you to do it, too. The exceptions to this (aside from obvious things like NOT killing and eating children that are not yours) are generally behaviors of all the animals that we consider to be on the same intellectual level as humans.
By that I mean that one should not look to house cats, most primates, or dolphins when seeking out moral and/or ethical advice.
So an example of why this is a good Life Philosophy: worried about whether or not it's ok to be gay? Gayness is in fact found pretty often in animals. It's mother nature's way of making sure the population stays under control. (Of course we've effed that up with artificial insemination and the like, but we're pretty good at effing mother nature up the rear in general....).
Another example (and my fav): eating meat. You don't have to eat meat. But you totally can eat meat without feeling morally bankrupt. Yeah I know a lot of these big farms raise their livestock under appalling conditions, but if that really bothers you, go local. There are plenty of smaller family-run companies and local farms that have humanely-raised cows and chickens and whatnot. Or go hunting and catch your own. As long as the animal I'm eating had a pretty comfortable non-caged life out in the field before it was slaughtered for my dinner, I'm totally ok with eating meat. Evolution gave me pointy teeth and you better believe I'm going to use them.
But of course there's another side to my it's-ok-if-animals-do-it philosophy, which is what led to the funny thought. Imagine if humans did some of the things that are kind of common in the animal kingdom. Like did them regularly, rather than just doing them after going insane, or turning into a wife beater or a serial killer sexual sadist; and all these were completely normal and socially acceptable.
Like imagine if women killed their gentleman friends right after an evening of hot sex.
(like many insects)
Or just went around killing people and animals for the hell of it.
(like house cats, and foxes)
Or building epic houses at night, then tearing them down in the morning and building a new one the next night.
(like orb weavers)
Imagine if your new boyfriend gave you an abortion because the kid wasn't his.
(wild horses do that)
Or if you shed all your skin at once, rather than just shedding microscopic flakes of it.
Personally, I think the world would be quite a bit more interesting.
