He was, according to at least one Christian theologist.
The link is predictably short on evidence and long on clickbait, but the gist is the symbolism inherent in Jesus’ personal relationships with his disciples (including the famous, “eat my body/drink my blood” concept), as well as his personal relationships with millions of modern Christians worldwide, described as akin to multiple marriages.
There’s more, of course, along with the all-too-common conflating of polyamory with polygamy, but my biggest takeaway from this article is that I can’t stop wondering who Jesus would talk to during an orgasm. I mean, most people wouldn’t want to think of their dad while getting off, but – hey, to each their own.
Ever wonder why Greek depictions of their male heroes included powerful bodies and beautiful faces, but tiny penises?
Their physical ideals were not so dissimilar to ours, but for their symbolism of the penis. A large or erect penis in ancient Greece was associated with evil, stupidity, and/or poor self-control. In modern society, by way of comparison, a large penis is associated with power, desirability, and even competence.
Wouldnt it make more sense to judge and value people not on their genetic traits, but rather how they live their lives?

Atlantic – Inclusion At Work
The Atlantic has become a leader in raising and discussing relevant workplace topics in a professional manner; Thursday morning March 7 from 9 AM to noon they are presenting a highly accomplished panel on inclusion within corporate America. Light refreshments are usually served.
If you are interested in attending *for free*, click the link above to register!
Event details, below.
In the last few years, many companies have vowed to diversify their workforces and their leadership. The goal: build businesses that look more like America.
And yet, the numbers tell us a familiar story: C-Suites are increasingly dominated by white men. How can companies foster real inclusion if they lack it at the top?
The Atlantic will gather leaders from across industries to explore why the push to diversify has yet to reap results. What new strategies have worked? And what kinds of fundamental change must happen for real, lasting inclusion?
