Frustrations with our culture today

Bigotry of any kind gets my goat.  I don’t get it.  Even when I’ve caught myself doing it.  What is wrong with people living their own goddamn lives?!?  I mean really?
I’m not just talking about the hub-bub about gay marriage.  I’m talking about the kids who get picked on for being shy or the goth kid who loves black.  Not being Christian, being too Christian.  Being Pagan, Muslim, Jewish.  You see where I’m going?  Who the fuck decided different was bad?  Especially in this country.  A country founded on ideals of freedom, whether you bow down to God or Allah.  Actually I know it was more like whether you went to Catholic mass or Protestant Sunday service.  But the point is that the founding fathers wanted us to be free from the strictures of the Old Country(tm).
I am sick and fucking tired of being judged because I’m a woman who likes sex and wants to talk about it.  I’m tired of feeling like I can’t be balls to the wall passionate about my vocation in public for fear of offending someone for talking about a natural and beautiful part of life.  I hate feeling like liking sex stigmatizes me.  In the early days of religion, there where temple prostitutes, even in the Hebrew faith.  Sex was one way of communing with your god, then.  It was a blessing and seen as a holy experience.  Many religions view sex as being a transcendent part of life and one of the ways we can know that Deity loves us, because why else would we enjoy it so much.
Why is it so wrong to try and bring this point of view to the modern world?  Why does sexual empowerment threaten the status quo so much?  I think these are things I will never understand…
