The Hyper Sexual Revolution

So Oprah and her best friend Gayle King are officially not gay. Not that there is anything wrong with being gay, say the two women, but they aren't gay. They're just very good friends. They go on to say:
"There isn't a definition in our culture for this kind of bond between women. So I get why people have to label it – how can you be this close without it being sexual?"
The sad thing is that there used to be a definition for close non-sexual relationships in our culture a generation ago. But not today. Today we can't comprehend wanting to really get to know someone unless we are also getting into their pants.

What is even worse is that we project our hypersexualized values back into the past. Suddenly everything in the past is about the sexual morals and behaviors of the present. Remember the movie Alexander? Same deal.

It's all so very annoying and so very small minded. Thank you sexual revolution.
