The penis and its malcontents

“So long as you aren’t throwing your hang-ups in other people’s faces, or expecting the rest of the world to conform to them, you really shouldn’t waste time worrying about them. Straight men who’d just as soon not look at their fellow man’s penis needn’t feel bad for avoiding situations where they might have to do just that, and when circumstances place them in such situations, so long as they’re polite about extracting themselves, they certainly shouldn’t feel guilty about it. We’re all monkeys, people. We all squirm over different things. Remember when you were a kid and you hated asparagus? It’s the same instinctive reaction at play.”
Journalista, April 25, 2007 (just scroll down past the naked blue babe, the essay starts there)
