  •  Can't you be well-adjusted and be manic? (4+ / 0-)

    Anyhow, the grotesqueries aside from strip clubs (what's more depressing?) and commercialized sexuality, the overt objectification of ppl, especially wimmin and the over-the-top eroticism on display on any dance floor or text messages.  It doesn't seem'special' anymore.

    •  I've learned to recognize when the manic (3+ / 0-)

      is kicking in, and use that excess energy for something productive; cleaning, guitar, home repairs etc. I also know the depressive part comes after, so I know to prepare for it. So in a way, I guess I'm adjusted.

      And maybe sex not seeming "special" may not be a bad thing, in a way. Sex has been a hushed, taboo subject for so long, I suspect that's why religious groups have been able to maintain control over the matter. Perhaps if we all just consider it a normal part of life (regardless of personal tastes), the stigma may finally end.

      As far as dance floors and texts....well, a lot of it is kids, I suspect, with overactive hormones. Objectification is never right, I hate strip clubs, but some people will always take some things too far.

      is not much different than the mating dances done by several animals and bird species -- you display yourself to potential mates, only in the case of humans they can decide if they like what they see.

      Outrageous texts -- that's just a spin-off of erotic emails and letters; I've written erotica in the past, and there's a certain art to it. (I once took a challenge to write an erotic story in less than 100 words; it was tough but it actually came out quite well.)
