    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Perhaps you wouldn't. Of course, there are a lot of heterosexual men who love it, hence why pegging exists. There are also lots of homosexual men who hate it. It really comes down to an individual's body and preferences.

I've come to learn that certain mannerisms and activities are indicitive of aspects of a persons personality. I've noticed that there are people who are very concerned with exhibiting intelligence (and that these people are generally not of anything more than average intelligence) and do so with use of "big" or obscure words. People that do this in writing, or are overly detailed and verbose, irritate and bore me.

    I pick writers cusch as Steinbeck and Card because they are relatively concise and humble in their writing styles. This is a conscious decision on my part. There is no mystery to it.
    Almost. Explain in detail what it is about concise and humble writing styles that make you choose writers who exhibit such to read... and tell us the process that causes irritation and boredom in writers that do not exhibit those qualities.

    Given the failure of attempts to reform pedophiles, I am not really sure its a choice (unfortunately).

    I can read both, I like the stories told by both, just not the way it's told by one becuase I have learned that some writing styles annoy me.

    In other words, I don't choose to be sexually aroused by men and you don't choose to be entertained by Koontz.
    No...I choose to be entertained by Koontz vs King. I can be entertained by both (can't wait for your next analogy, btw)

    And yet you consider the behavior, to have sex or to read, to be completely choice?
    The actual action? Absolutely by choice.

    Assuming that it were a sin to read Koontz and a virtue to read Stephen King, would you give up the former for the latter for the rest of your life?
    Yes. I've given up quite a few things in my life for the greater good (or because of the rules).

    I beleive I allready did. The manner in which someone writes is indicitive of how they think. If they are "putting on airs" I choose to not read them. It's not that I can't read them, its not that I can't get something from the writing...I choose not to read them because I've learned that the way they write is reflective of attitudes I dislike. Attitudes, by the way, that have no direct impact on my life. It's a choice because I could live with, or without it.

    I think pedophilia is still considered a disorder (at least I hope it is). I don't know that the failure of treatment makes it any less a choice though, exfept perhaps if you consider addiction beyond choice. In my view, addiction is a result of choices made....and so is still a choice for this purpose.

    Given the way we think the brain works for compulsive behavior, the internal consequences are such that much of the choice is removed from us.

    This has nothing to do with anything. You already know the answers. We're talking about sexuality.

    According to you, heterosexuality is the only unchosen sexuality. The world revolves around you. It's nonsensical.
