Yes, I understand the need to procreate, and I understand that there are drives and passions. I get that. I lack such drives, but I get the concept.<quoted text>
I would like to know how hard it is to control the sexual drive. Why must that be such a focus for some? I am curious if anyone can expound on this.
I understand that humans procreate and are attracted to others. I simply wish that others would be more open to the idea of not everyone choosing a lifestyle of seeking sex or accepting sex. Some of us are asexual, some of us are autosexual and some of us are waiting for marriage or are abstaining for a time period, among a plethora of reasons. Why is this never taken into consideration?
Some will say that you have to try regardless, but I wish that more would adhere to the social decorum, "there's a place and time for everything." While someone is engrossed in work, shopping, take into consideration that not everyone is interested in procreating with you. Right at that minute. It's delusional and absurd.
Also, empathy is another factor; take into account when others are obviously wrapped in their own thoughts. Wouldn't you be annoyed if someone bothered you while you're in deep contemplation? Or bothered you regularly? Try to place yourself in another's shoes. I notice this is not really an issue for others, so I am wondering what is it about the culture that view strangers, colleagues or peers as toys to play with, bother, rather than living, thinking beings.
How best can we advocate a cultural reformation in perception, behavior and lifestyle?
I agree that what you and I are after is getting others to realize that not everyone is seeking or wanting sex. You are right about some being asexual (not having sexual and/or romantic attractions) or autosexual (preferential masturbation, etc). And yes, some are waiting for marriage or have other reasons to want to abstain. So why aren't these people respected?
I agree on the decorum thing. There is a time and a place for everything. If a woman is in a club and dressed provocatively, it is one thing to come onto them. But if they are on the job, on the way to work or pay bills, etc., then that is another matter, and sexual advances well be less likely to be welcomed or tolerated.
I am happy to be alone and am deeply in my own thoughts every single time I am not interacting with others. I hate it when I am waiting in a line, lost in my own thoughts, another register opens up, and someone other than the clerk violates my privacy to tell me that the other line opened up. And it is mostly people outside my White race who will do this, like my race is somehow inferior and that they have to teach me or "take care of" me like I'm a f**king child.
You end questions are good ones, but I don't have the answers. For me, it is the across racial lines aspect that bothers me, but you show it is even deeper than that.
