blue_cristal Posted June 29, 2007 Share Posted June 29, 2007 I have observed in a lot of different forums that as soon someone starts discussing and questioning sexual taboos, there is always someone else who immediately assumes the worst about this person and start denigrating and stigmatizing him with malevolent insinuations. The usual stereotyped assumption is that if he discusses this or that taboo is because he is a “pervert” and that he actually questions a taboo because “he has an interest” in such sexual practice. Some individuals even go as far as insinuating that the poster gets aroused just for discussing the matter !!! But making this inference is as true as saying that a psychologist who studies sexual behaviour "gets aroused” by studying this matter and therefore he is a “pervert”. Obviously, actually almost nobody accuses or insinuates that a psychologist is a “perverted person”. Strangely enough, people think that someone having a psychologist’s diploma makes him immune of any such accusation. Yet both a psychologist and a non-graduated person can have a genuine interest and curiosity about this matter without necessarily being a sexual deviant or “pervert”. By the way, the word “pervert” although it is, currently, enormously charged with denigrating meanings, actually is very subjective, vague and arbitrary. For instance, there are some few people that consider an ordinary kiss between lovers as a “perversion”. So my question is why some people are so keen on planting malicious accusations and, as consequence, try to abort any free debate about sexual matters ? What are they trying to achieve and why ?
