  1. Fu ny enough, the 2 things I associate with hedges are election posters and odd pages of porn.

    No sex please. I am a Catholic.

  3. Actually, just to be contrarian about it, taking into account the new online culture emerging across the globe right now visiting a porn site probably does constitute a form of being sexually active. And will likely do so to a far greater degree in the future. New technology, new societies, new customs. The same applies to politics. Since I’m wrecked after work you’ll have to forgive me for a copy ‘n’ paste from something I put on SO’T that explains what I mean:

    “Maybe it’s a generational thing but the internet is no longer simply a passive artefact. That is old media, dead tree media. You buy, you read, you discard. You click, you watch, you forget. The new online media is interactive, acquisitive. It wants your participation, it rewards your participation. Feed it and it will feed you [in terms of social prestige with your peers or those you want to be your peers and psychologically through interaction/engagement with others, especially those perceived as being “in the loop”].”

    These days real world and online world interact, especially in relation to anti-establishment or radical politics. The yoof love it 😉

    I think I agree with FJH.

    “The new online media is interactive, acquisitive. It wants your participation, it rewards your participation. Feed it and it will feed you [in terms of social prestige with your peers ”

    Nationalists spending time commenting on SO’T is I think not much different from nationalists sitting in a pub with the same old dozen nationalists every week saying more or less the same old thing.

    It is if not solo masturbation, mutual masturbation from a group.
