We feign to recognize the true facade of our identity. Yet, there is no such thing as a man who is completely heterosexual or homosexual. Take for example--without reference to institutions such as religion--the human condition. While it is a matter of life and death survival, it is primarily about the pursuit of pleasure and happiness. Our social roots stem from a Justinian system that calls hedonism an injustice within the "true purpose" of our beings; however, that is taking into consideration the belief in a higher being and often leaves out a greater majority of the population. To give a man a name is merely a form of classification. It is order in a world that we designate should be without chaos. But, is chaos the culmination of our problems? Or is chaos the solution to what we are missing?
It is indeed true that man has struggled with the idea of sexuality from the very beginning. From primitive tribes to 15th Century Europe, it has been a matter of trying to understand a world of humans that fight one another for meaning. Yet, the world has no deeply philosophical or ethical meaning. Nor should man look to it for comfort, for the gratitude of being intelligent or human. It is man himself that has always attempted to give this world a purpose, so that his grandeur might be better suited and capable in an otherwise vicious world. Perhaps this is more condescending than truth, but in fact it is because of the over-exuberance that we have lost sight of our worth.
Is it not surprising that we label ourselves as the apex of the animal kingdom when there are certainly many predators throughout the world that easily overcome our delicate bodies? Could not a disease like HIV/AIDS be considered stronger than we? We are to blame for our pride and avarice, but that is not a bad thing. It has lead to the obscurity of our own selves, which is the provocation of our hatred towards people who do not acquiesce.
