Pedophile or Post-human?

If a fourteen year-old girl has sex, is she still human?

Darimont told LiveScience that while he considers the changes to be evolutionary, some biologists consider them phenotypic and, without evidence of genetic shifts, would not call them evolution… One specific example: the overfished Atlantic cod on the eastern coast of Canada. Less than two decades ago, they began mating at age 6. Now they start at age 5.

In support of this impressive science, I note the following report from the Observer: Britons are losing their virginity younger than in the past: for over-55s the average age was 19; within the 25-34 group it was 16; and among 16-24s, 15. That’s a difference of THREE years in two decades; homo sapiens is evolving even faster than the Atlantic cod!

Clearly adults who are attracted to children under 15 should not be labeled pedophiles when they can be scientifically shown to be nothing more than evolutionary change-agents bringing about post-humanity. Based on the increasingly lunatic declarations of its advocates, I’m beginning to suspect we may see TENS collapse even sooner than I’d ever imagined. I still don’t expect to see it happen in my lifetime, but I’m quite confident that it is probable, if not necessarily inevitable. Yet.

Evolution’s defenders are in the position of a bridge builder watching his rickety old edifice sway and bend in the wind. “It hasn’t fallen yet!” he shouts defiantly. But any less self-interested observer will readily notice that it’s only a matter of time before the structure collapses completely. The linked article is evidence of bad science journalism, not bad science, but then, there’s not much about evolution that can reasonably described as science by any non-tautological definition of the term.

Californication

They’ve wrecked their home state with their left-liberalism. Naturally, they have no recourse but to go pollute other states with their political filth:

Mike Reilly spent his lifetime chasing the California dream. This year he’s going to look for it in Colorado. With a house purchase near Denver in the works, the 38-year-old engineering contractor plans to move his family 1,200 miles away from his home state’s lemon groves, sunshine and beaches. For him, years of rising taxes, dead-end schools, unchecked illegal immigration and clogged traffic have robbed the Golden State of its allure.

This demonstrates why Open Doors libertarianism is logically untenable. There is no freedom to be found in a population determined to make themselves serfs. I don’t at all disagree with EAS’s previous contention that libertarianism is politically dead as of 2009, except to point out that it hasn’t been noticeably viable in the USA at any time since the early 1920s.

A laudable cause

It’s practically the definition of a win-win situation:

My understanding of reproduction is that it is the basis of the institutions of marriage and family, and those two provide the moorings to the structure of gender and sexual oppression. Family is the social institution that ensures unpaid reproductive and domestic labour, and is concerned with initiating a new generation into the gendered (as I analyzed here) and classed social set-up. Not only that, families prevent money the flow of money from the rich to the poor: wealth accumulates in a few hands to be squandered on and bequeathed to the next generation, and that makes families as economic units selfishly pursue their own interests and become especially prone to consumerism.

So it makes sense to say that if the world has to change, reproduction has to go. Of course there is an ecological responsibility to reduce the human population, or even end it , and a lot was said about that on the blogosphere recently (here, and here), but an ecological consciousness is not how I came to my decision to remain child-free.

Anyone still wonder why I call them evolutionary dead-ends? Now, since they’re quite determined to extinguish themselves, do you think they’d have any objection if we helped them move the process along a little more quickly?

I’m thinking radical lobotomies and Bene Tleilaxu tanks.
