My muse Olivia Judson (talk about hott) has a blog post about monogamy and what actually caught my eye was the idea of “social monogamy” — being monogamous for social purposes (e.g. raising children) but otherwise sexually promiscuous. She cites some examples of animals known to be socially monogamous and appends the list with “some humans”. But… really, are only some of the humans like that, or do we all still feel sexual pull towards other people when we are committed? I don’t know, i cannot but think that we should deal with the extra-conjugal relationships instead of prohibiting them. I think being social monogamous is cool. Even more if the couple do talk about it.
Truth of the Lesser Men is a collection of ideas and short essays by a young male Brazilian called marcio rocha pereira, in a not-so-fluent English.
The subject is the world, society, live and how we live it. Or something like it. It is my attempt at understanding everything that happens all around me, an ontological travel journal of sorts. Which probably translates into, quite simply, my own opinions and thinking.
Nevertheless, i don’t know what i am, or if being something is important to me, or what you mean by “being something” — so that I can hardly answer the questions of what I do, or work with, or any of the other identity-assigning questions. If you are really interested, check the personal info.
The idea of this blog is to avoid rewriting as much as possible, and to write different takes to the same ideas if the need arise, instead of modifying. This is to avoid a constant state of in-progress.
Love or hate, i am always open for criticism (and i'll even accept praise with as much grace as i can manage). Hope you like it.
