- Sex between unmarried people is a sin.
- Spontaneous sex between unmarried people is now good, so let the good times roll!
- Spontaneous is bad. Sometimes people get hurt, so let’s have explicit forms of consent before engaging in sex.
- In fact, women especially need safe spaces from which they can be protected from even male gazes and expressions of sexual interest from nerds.
- Preteen girls need to see more dick because tolerance!
Anthony Weiner must be kicking himself. Had he waited a few more months before sharing his dick picks he could have claimed he was teaching that 15 year-old girl tolerance.
For the myth of progress to hold, progressives need to be always changing their morals. The only way for the righteous to go about slaying the demons of conservatism is to create some new moral fad that contradicts the one from five minutes ago.
Chris Cuomo of course is a journalist so I doubt he is really capable of independent thought, but that is how fads work, see.
Example: all the kids drink soda until the cool kids start drinking bottled water. Soda, of course, is bad for you; water is a sign of being health conscious, so the cool kids spend good money on something that in civilized nations is free. Capitalism!
Then everybody drinks bottled water, so the cool kids decide that plastic bottles are uncool, immoral, in fact, being bad for the sea turtles. So the cool kids start buying surgical steel water containers. Capitalism!
Without ever evolving morals, you can’t stay cool.
