Ask A Genius 192 – New Relationships

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

June 8, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: With all of these new relationship forms, those might work better now because people can always beat off.

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: This makes sense evolutionarily too. Apparently, statistically, almost all female humans, women, have had 1 child; whereas, men will have 0 or 2. So a larger proportion of men will be completely out of the future gene pool compared to women.

Rosner: I see.

Jacobsen: Also, there are so many taboos crystallized in comprehension worldviews, like religions, that were not really acceptable, but were more or less imposed by government.

For instance, gay marriage was a huge issue and probably not widely accepted unless enforced by provisions of equality. So it is a larger thought, where a lot of these other ones will have a hard time.

Rosner: So what you’re saying for gay marriage to work, the government needs to step in on those that would stop it on religious or other grounds.

Jacobsen: Secular or religious grounds, I could see similar or the same pushback, whether religious or various secular-minded individuals who have personal disagreements with it and so don’t want to see it in society in any way – in all its combinations. 

Whether quadruplets or triplets, or whatever the title may be, or in various sexual minority orientations…

Rosner: I feel that I am a self-righteous person, not a righteous person. I am judgy. I get pissed. I think a theme or semi-universal theme among people is to be a fan of one’s orientation or lifestyle or choices, and to be resentful when alternate choices are successful in the world.
