Science vs. social liberals

Just as there are social conservatives, there are social liberals. I define “social liberal” as anybody who is liberal when it comes to social issues. It the opposite of social conservative. Regarding life, family and sexual issues, whatever the social conservative believes, the social liberal believes the opposite. Party affiliation is not necessarily an indication of somebody’s stance on social issues. For example, I believe that most Democrats are social liberals, but I also know that some are not. There are growing numbers of Republicans embracing social liberalism but typically the Republican party is the home of social conservatives.

Here is a chart I made to show how social liberals are at odds with science. It is reductive for a reason. I want to make it clear how a certain demographic (the older generation) exercises “sexual liberty” at the expense of another demographic (their offspring). The negative impact on their offspring is ignored, downplayed, or denied by social liberals.

Issue Science says… Social liberals say…
Does human life begin at conception? Yes No
Is sexual orientation innate and fixed? No Yes
Is “gender identity” fixed at birth? Yes No
Do children fare better with their own married mother and father? Yes No
Do fertile couples have a right to pregnancy free coitus? No Yes
Is divorce harmful? Yes No
Is pornography harmful? Yes No
Is gay sexual activity harmful? Yes No
Are men and women different? Yes No

I’m sure I could add more things to this list.

I'm an adult child of divorce, having been raised in multiple divorce/remarriage situations. I'm writing in order to shed light on the problems of divorce from the perspective of the child. I will also discuss problems with other non-triad family structures, since there is a lot of overlap. People often think that better parenting skills will overcome problems in non-triad arrangements. While I agree that parenting skills are important, they cannot overcome the problems I discuss such as fractured ontology and perpetual liminality. I converted to the Catholic faith in 2012, and will discuss Catholic things from time to time as well.

  1. I’ve never read a scientific paper that says that gender identity is fixed at birth. Gender identity is defined as “One’s innermost concept of self as male, female, a blend of both or neither – how individuals perceive themselves and what they call themselves. ” While one’s sex is fixed at birth, gender identity is a subjective feeling.

    I wrote a short essay (500 words) called “What Causes Sexual Orientation: Nature and Nurture.” If you would like to read it, I am open to any feedback: https://christopherjohnlindsay.wordpress.com/2016/12/16/sexual-orientation-nature-nurture/
