Vaginal fluids are sacred too

Something I've noticed a lot lately is the contradictory attitude towards "God's creation" in many Christians. All the time, I hear about how we are supposed to have reverence and awe for the beauty and majesty of His creation. What's funny though, is how very selective Christians are in what they'll have "reverence" and "awe" for, even though it's all supposed to be designed by God.

 

I live in the dorms at a Christian university, and being an atheist, needless to say I get myself into some pretty interesting conversations. I can remember one conversation I had with a few guys, where the subject matter turned to, oh, let's say matters of the flesh. Specifically, we were talking about the chemistry and inner workings of the female vagina.

 

Well, of course, one of the guys got offended and left. I asked him about it later, and he said it wasn't "edifying" to talk about such things. Although earlier, for some reason, he had no problem discussing his favorite Star Wars characters- and last time I checked, that's not "edifying" either, at least not by biblical standards.

 

If it made him uncomfortable or squeamish, then I could understand and sympathize. But he used the term "edifying" as though our conversation were wrong on some sort of spiritual level.

 

Listen up, Christians -- you don't get to decide what part of God's creation is beautiful and what isn't! The Bible says God made everything--everything!--and said it was GOOD. That means He would have carefully designed the labia, the vulva, and the clitoris, and everything else that's down there. He would have studied and pondered exactly what chemical components would go into female discharges, and how they would be released.

 

And then YOU (Christians) come along and have the nerve to say, "it's not proper" or "that kind of talk is filthy." Have you no reverence for your Designer and the hard work He put in His creation?

 

Here's what I think, and I mean this most sincerely. I think, if you believe in a god, and you claim to respect his creation, but call some natural aspect of it filthy, or dirty- this is tantamount to blasphemy. Yes, blasphemy. Why do you praise your God for sunsets, but not for excrement?

 

As an atheist, I can say, I think sunsets are prettier than poop. But you, the Christian, believe both are the handiwork of an intelligent designer, and ought to give both the same reverence, or else you are a hypocrite, and you don't really respect your God's design. Peace and Love,

This is the same god who told men to cut off their foreskins and decreed menses and semen make you "unclean."

 

God can't even make up his mind on what's acceptable of his own creations, it's really little wonder that the people who follow this backwards line of thinking follow suit.

There were no bodily fluids before the fall.

 

... poor Eve. :twitch::ouch: Good thing it's all bullshit anyway, I don't want to get too concerned for a fictional character.

 

Anyway, I also attend a Christian college as an Atheist, and see that a lot of guys are afraid of women and talking about our anatomy because they've just never really been given proper education; but let me tell ya, 10 seconds of a decent porno pops up on someone's computer, and they're all practically jacking-off together.

 

Oh, and then there's menstruation, which grosses out every guy in hearing distance. I understand that "anything that bleeds for 7 days and doesn't die is evil", but at least when everything is normal it's a good indicator that a woman is fertile, or not pregnant, or mature, etc, etc, etc.

 

Tho I still sometimes wish that men could have a go at having a menstrual cycle, just to see how many would totally freak out, and how many would realize that saying "just get over it" to PMS isn't actually an option. :wicked:

 

And as a side note: Dance for us Jesus! Dance! Dance! :jesus:

Tell me about it...this is one of the many little things that chipped away at my faith, which at this point is lying on the floor of my cranium in too many small pieces to count. I'm just looking for the dustpan at this point. The Babble says that men are unworthy to worship if their weenie is intact, when he's the one who supposedly designed said weenie in the first place. What is this, an in-the-field design change? Surely an all-knowing infinte being would be better at QC than this! A real all-knowing diety wouldn't have to recall any products he manufactured! The regarding of emitted fluids as "unclean" sounds more like the projection of primitive man's psyche than the Word Of An All-Knowing All-Powerful Deity...again, blame the manufacturer! Fundies say (and I once thought) that this was beacuse some distant ancestor took advice from a talking snake. What the hell was I thinking...oy....

 

Todd in Cheesecurdistan, more into Paine and Ingersoll than Paul and Calvin these days....
