Other are just bad people.
i fucking hate that excuse.
You can be naturally horny and have a higher sex drive than others, I think I'm one of these people. This doesn't mean you HAVE to act on it.
Have some self control.
and invariably, everyone is promiscuous, because it's all about making more babies.
Just some people are better at controlling urges/worse at getting laid.
we'd create an ubermensch who'd crush all humanity. Before shooting himself when he gets depressed and lonely having killed everyone else.
Thanks, I'm here all week.
they have different meanings.
it's only the fact that i'm only averagely attractive that stops me being a massive slut.
however, being promiscuous while in a relationship and continuing said relationship (if that's what this is about) indicates a bit of a conscience bypass, which is possibly a defining characteristic of a 'bad' person. whatever that means. but yeah, i'm not judging.
some people just lack self control.
don't want self control
but it's a short step from this to the "it's a natural urge to mate with multiple partners that all animals have".
this thread was started as the original poster was getting flack elsewhere for being quite so brazen about cheating on her (now ex) boyfriend, so it's entirely what she was going for, and it's an arguement i fucking hate. we are animals, yes, but we also have a conciousness that means we can rationalise our behavior, so a lot "animal instincts" can be completely negated.
there is a dichotomy between animals and humans. I've never accepted that. I don't think animal behaviour is lower than supposedly "higher" human behaviour. Because moral codes are subjective and are largely a post-religion societal hangover anyway.
Many or all of the things human beings do are driven by subtly masked animal urges. For some, the value of subjective moral codes don't hold up enough to moderate other (stronger) compulsions, it's true. If you don't have unshakeable faith that one particular course is any more right than the other, then something has to give.
in a nihilistic strain of determinism.
By the way.
all rapists are bad people?
I doubt there is anyone who actually thinks: I don't want to have sex, so I'll do it to be bad.
Then you need to define a line between promiscuous and non-promiscuous and then bad and non-bad. There are no such things other than boundaries created by the subjectivity of people which will be different.
subjective grey area this, subjective grey area that.
And no actual opinions one way or the other.
but I fail to see the relevance of this point.
Grey areas are fine, there are many of them in this world, but when it stops people from having opinions it's pretty annoying.
I've just noticed a lot of this type of posting on DiS lately. I shouldn't have singled that poster out.
Personal opinion decides whether you like the Beatles or not and whther you think they're better or worse than 5ive.
Most things can boil down to "I think differently and you can't change my opinion."
There are promiscuous people and there are bad people but there is no line over which they cross to beome those things.
For the record I think that I am neither promiscuous or bad. Most people will think that.
it's me isn't it?
a) being promiscuous doesn't make you a bad person.
b) being "naturally promiscuous" is in no way either an excuse of explanation for cheating on someone in a relationship
I've got zero moral fibre
I'll sleep with anyone, boyfriend or no boyfriend
And I'm REALLY PROMISCUOUS (but I'm not a bad person, wink)
Is anyone paying me attention yet?
Tillance obviously needs a better profile pic
supposedly aimed at bright young things with an interest in relatively avant-guarde music would have such a conservative clientele.
Some of you lot sound like the right-wing American promise ring brigade. Jesus Christ! Lighten up! Sex can be a wonderful thing! Honestly!
