Sodomites, Vaginamites and Cockites: Welcome to the Demise of Morality

Vaginamite
Vaginamite

Well, it turns out I’m a vaginamite. I had no idea. I’m not even that happy about it despite my general obsession with, well, vagina.

Okay, I am thinking that some of you are probably thinking, “WTF is a vaginamite?” and, honestly, that’s a fair question. It’s actually very similar to the question I asked when I found out that a gay friend of mine is a “sodomite.”

Apparently, if you are a gay male in America, there are many people who consider you to be a “sodomite.” Being an ignorant of such things, I had to ask what that meant. So, thankfully, I was told how it works.

You see, people who are gay, are, well, gay. That means they like people of the same sex as themselves. If you happen to be male and feel this way, then apparently the only thing that matters in our society is that, if you find someone with whom you share enough things in common (like literature, dog loving, exercise habits, work ethic, religion, political views, artistic sensibility, music… etc.), we, as a culture, reduce you to the sexual activities that might occur once you find someone with whom you share all those things in common. So, since some sexual contact of some particular type might take place we, therefore, assign you a label by which we can then decide how to treat you.

Cockite
Cockite

If it’s a man-on-man thing, you will, by iron decree, be indulging in sex of the posterior region making you a sodomite. If you are a male who likes chicks, you are, clearly a vaginamite (like me), and if you are a chick who likes dudes, you are a cockite. It's so simple.

Sodomites are the main focus though. But that's cool. The beauty and simplicity of this identification system, “sodomidenity,” is that it removes any need for thinking or expectation of personal complexity. If you are gay, you are clearly going to indulge in that booty sex thing, and, therefore, you are a sodomite, because “sodomy” is that booty thing, and if you do it, nothing else matters about you. Every other thing about you is instantly erased and, no matter your mind, wit, intelligence, talent, works, contributions, perspective, or anything else, none of that matters. You are just a sodomite.

Which is fine. I get it. You are gay. And, by the possibility of that booty thing, you are actually just a sodomite, because, well, we are defined by where we focus our sex acts. That really is what we are if we really, honestly examine who we are.

Which is why I am kind of depressed.

I am a vaginamite.

Look, I admit I love naked chicks. I do. I try to pretend I’m all intelligent and educated and stuff, but the truth is, when hot models and actresses come on TV, I’m thinking, “Man, I wish I could see her … V-part.”

I feel even more sorry for my wife. I love my wife. I do. More than anything. But, honestly, I spend a lot of time figuring out how to, well, you know… that, to her. So that's all I am. I'm not a husband, or father. Just a vaginamite.

Sodomite
Sodomite

I always thought that I was mostly about my work. My novel writing. My satire. The marketing and sales I have done to shape and grow companies I have worked for. The people I have helped. The people I have influenced, kids I raised, causes I made a difference in. But, well, I am a moron. I’m not that. Humans are not that stuff. We are who we hump or want to hump, and how we hump them.

I am a vaginamite. That’s it. Nothing more.

My wife is a cockite. Wow, how disappointing. I thought she was this amazing, loving, giving person, a great cook, kind mother, … but, by the rules of sexual reductivism, that doesn’t work. She’s just a cockite. And, frankly, now I’m insecure. Man, I hope nobody has a better, um… first part of her “...ite.”

Anyway, I’m not sure what else to say beyond this. But I just want everyone to understand how it really works. If you think you are some kind of enlightened something or other and you want to make some lame argument about "live and let live," or evolving freedoms in a modern world or some other stupid crap like that… don’t. We are nothing more than the reduced description of our preferred or possibly preferred sexual acts. The rest is just crap. So stop trying to pretend you have dignity. You don’t. You’re just a cockite, a sodomite or a vaginamite. Accept it.

Lordy, Lordy Shades,

I feel exposed, naked being a cockite and all. I thought that part of me was the least. I thought this amazing woman who could do anything she set her mind to, who made people want to forget they were on a diet with her meal creations, her eye for beauty and art and all the other mazing things about was who she really is.......I'm so depressed right now.

Seriously, I love this. You have brought to the forefront how simplistic and utterly shallow we see others. How retarded our views of people really are.

We don't walk around bashing people for being cockites and vaginites yet we do it with sodomites. So that brings in the biasness(if there is such a word) of how we think and treat each other. We as a people need a paradigm shift.

Damn you. Here I was just enjoying a wonderfully, lazy, thought-free day and you come along with your brilliant as usual wit and start me pondering. I've always despised labels...in clothing and people. Using them is just a way of saying "I'm too damn lazy and too full of my own self righteous worth to get to know who you really are. It's so much easier to describe you by your race, your religion, your sexual preference and take you out of the equation of people worth knowing.". Nice way to bring a point across.

Okay, what do you call a celibate? A non-ite? (Just wondering).

I found this hub hilariously bitter and couldn't agree with you more about sexual reductivism.

I wonder if all men wonder if their wives wonder if there's something better out there for the cockite.


Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 5 years ago from California Author

Hi Spryte. Sorry for messing up your thought-free zone lol. And yeah, labels do make it easier to write people off. Helps us avoid dealing with complexity and challenging our own beliefs. Who wants to do that crap? :D

Thanks, LSKing. :)

Paradise, you ask a good question. I don't know what we'd call a celibate. Maybe just a celibite? lol. And, for what it's worth, all men KNOW there is something better out there for the cockite. It's the law of the west, every gunslinger new it. No matter how good you are with that weapon, there's always someone better. (I know it's "how fast you are, someone is faster" but in a cockite conversation, you really don't want "fast" in your similes and metaphors for obviously reasons. :D )

Jewels and I are obviously on the same wavelength, because i was thinking that you were going to be talking about Vegemite as opposed to Marmite. Then I thought, what about those poor little Catamites that I have read and written about, and are the Luddites not going to get a mention either... then I read mark Ewbie's comment on the way down and I stopped hyperventilating, and decided that I am going to be a neophyte and just go with the flow. Or should that be neophite?

Baileybear 5 years ago

there's a yeast spread called Vegemite in Australia & New Zealand. Now everytime I see Vegemite, it will remind me of Vaginamite.

What about those who like both? Bimite? Dimite?

Those that like neither - nonomite?


Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 5 years ago from California Author

Baileybear, yeah, I remember a song back in the 80's that used to sing about it, something about a Vegemite sandwich. "I come from a land down under, where women roar and men thunder..." something like that. Not sure how they got to the vegemite sandwich from there, but they did lol. As for the others, Bimite and nomite mite work, or maybe vagicockite and celibite, and maybe ... lol ... imite for virgins? (LOLOL i just killed myself).

kallini2010 profile image

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada

Why don't we drop the false modesty altogether?

For me the word sodomite was unclear at best because it did not only mean gay men having sex with gay men. I looked up the term and the article is two kilometers long.

I guess "taking it from behind" is a very jolly activity, since homosexuals are called so GAY.

In Russian, they are called Blue, so it might occur that "taking it from behind" might actually incur some melancholy as every love does.

However, I have trouble with your classification.

I cannot have sex either way with vaginamites (I would rather drop "m" and make it "vaginites").

It does not sound right - a woman loves a vaginamite, sounds like a woman in love with a vagina something, therefore making two vaginas, so a female gay couple.

However, since you so clearly put it in the open the parts instead of the veiled places (Sodom)

I suggest let's clarify everything once and for all

For Receivers:

for anal anything - analites (men or women)

for vaginal - vaginites

for oral - oralites (men or women)

For givers:

gay -

heterosexual

bisexual

The instrument is still the same.

No, there are vibrators - Vibratorites

Analites = the analogy with the word "anal-yze" is so clear so I don't really have to draw your attention to it (anal-ogy, anal-ize).

"Analites" - "Thinkers"

(try it and you would think twice why it is ok for gay people and women, but not for straight men, that is a challenge). The horror! The horror!!!

I tried to ask a question "What is your position on anal sex?" and a man told me he had no position.

Men have only two positions in anal sex, and it is their position that make them straight or gay.

Bisexuals are, I guess, open-minded.

"Oralites" - "Eloquent Speakers"

"Vaginites" - "Mothers/Mothers to be/Possible Mothers/Impossible Mothers" (women only)

Where to put straight men?

Together with moralites?

Strait Jackets come to mind.

Why? Because men want it all in every possible place and then point their fingers and not only fingers at the immorality of others. Especially women.

This is not an ill-intended response, it is my re-BUTT-al. If anything makes me think, I think despite the analogies it might create.

Just riding my creativity wave...

I don't think anybody expected it. That is the beauty of comments. On top of all the places where we can take "it", there are heads filled with minds.


Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 5 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K.

I love the pictures also. I think the sodomites have the best chance of survival in a famine, but that's another story.


Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 5 years ago from California Author

Heh heh, Cags, I figured you might get a kick out of them. :D Thanks for coming back and looking.

Kallini, you know, as you ride that creative wave, I will just ride it with you. I'm not sure there's a distinction between who likes what based on gender, but I admit the preference of more than one complicates things. I stand by my assessment as is, having already declared that the main focus is on sodomites. Anyone who enjoys that, is a sodomite, so, I guess no matter what gender you are, if you enjoy that, there's your category. If you are a woman who likes women, you are still a vaginamite, as I see it, but I am certainly up to input from the floor, as they say. And, well, a cockite is a cockite until he/she rolls over I guess. :P

Twilight Lawns, I was really, really tempted to run with that, but, it's at that point in the weekend where I might run off a bit too far with that one. As it stands right now, I've had the ads turned off, but not the hub, so, I think I'll just grin and tell you I probably need therapy.

Shadesbreath:

Since you insist:

I am a woman. A Woe-Maaaaan. Those words... always create one mess or another.

But if you ask my friends/readers, I am a pain in the ...

what was your preference?

still,

To end it on a lighter note -

I was laughing out so hard and for so long, that my son was trying to read what was "so funny".

And to compensate for any "pain", there is one article that I have (I am not the author) which is funny and which explains my "preferences" - I torture with ... Tolerance.

I never push my work on others (as if it was possible), but this piece deserves more light (as I said before, I am only the messenger - the translator).

Cutting, biting satire is surely your forte, Shades! Brilliantly done--sure to make people think--the think-ites, of course. That would be those who claim to abstain and content themselves with just thinking about it. (A category not exactly including priests, it would seem.)

Of the non-thinkers, many will simply agree with the article at face-value, not realizing they are being twitted...and those are the ones causing the problems of which you so eloquently speak...errrrr...write.

Voted up and funny... still laughing.

Hi DzyMsLizzy. Thanks for the kind words. I do love sarcasm, it does just sort of pop out of me, so, why not run with it, right? And, you know, it's the ones who take it at face value that I enjoy the most, because, well, I don't know why. I should be scared or something. lol.

Shadesbreath, I think you were wrong about people not being interested in thoughtful articles. I know it was not what you said, you said that this kind of articles did not make money.

It is that the adult content that bugs me, because I haven't found the way around it yet.

But your success is very encouraging. I am just letting you know in case you don't know already that your article has been featured.

While Shadesbreath is bathing in the rays of fame and spotlights,

a little note to Simone:

I wanted to write an article that is "adult content", but not obscene,of course, yet I was apprehensive that my effort would go down the drain since HP is not really favour certain topics.

If it is so awesome what Shadesbreath did, I would like to note that there is a precedent. It may not work the way I plan, not all articles are created equal, but I want to make a point nonetheless.

P.S. It is not advertising or self-promotion, the article in question does not even have a draft yet.

An idée fixe... seulement.

Shadesbreath:

I don't know what you mean by "bag boy". Is it a BAD boy, or is it some term I am not aware of? I don't want your jokes to die horrific deaths.

I don't know if you saw my comment on "Tolerance", but I was not aware that you have commented on this one - sometimes notifications don't come.

Featuring. I had no idea either. But one of my articles got so much traffic all of a sudden that I could not help but wonder. I looked it up and to my bewilderment it was "featured" on the front page "Topics".

Look at the top of the page on the left:

HubPages

Home Topics Hubs Answers Hubbers Forums

So, in the Topics there are categories and subcategories. Three hubs (pictures only, icons) are featured on the front page, if you go to category or subcategory you have a list - the same idea with your own hubs - best/hot/latest/greatest.

Not everything is written is displayed.

Anyways:

http://hubpages.com/entertainment...

I gave you the link so you know.

But you know how to press different tabs.

Click, click, click.

Mine "Am I Beautiful?" was in the "Hubs" section as well, I only found out today because it did not occur to me to click on "Hubs" before. I am the same as you, I don't know enough about HubPages. I am a writer, not a technical person who comes to the site and gets to know how to set up ads and make money. Nothing to be proud of.

I will try not to forget to share my "masterpiece" on back doors, but it might take a long time. I am completely bogged down writing my visions.

I submitted my comment, went back to see if your article was still there and what did I see? Another one of mine is featured.

Am I famous? Deluded, more like.


Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 5 years ago from California Author

LOL @ Austinstar, thank you, Dahling. You ahh too kind.

Kallin, you are correct, "Bad Boy" is what I was going for. I'm so glad you speak booze, because, well, ... it's just a good thing that the internet doesn't have booze hating regulations on grammar and typing. Oh, and thanks for showing me how to get to that link. I'm not sure how anyone would ever find that naturally, but it is cool to see it show up. :) I always think it would be funny to see one of mine show up on that front page "perfect graphics" hub rotation slide show thing they do. But, I know that can't happen. I'm not selling recipes for spam or how to knit corn silk thongs for constipated Mediterranean goats, so, probably won't happen. :D


kallini2010 profile image

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada

I had so much fun with "click-click-clicking" - I saw your "100" standing and it is not only your article that is "featured", but also YOU as well. In the "Hubbers" section.

I did not know it before. I have never had "100", but it does not really matter.

Enjoy your fame, it might be fleeting.

And how anyone gets anywhere on HubPages? I never went to topics and those pages looking for the material to read. As arrogant as it might sound "I am here to write, not read."

I found you following someone else because I had a theory. Don't I always?

The idea was to write an article about comments. As it usually happens, one idea leads to another and in the end I cannot even remember where I started.

There is a Russian expression "To start with "Long live the King" and end with "Rest in Peace" (from joyous celebration to the funeral panegyric).

However, the article is under way.

All in all I am glad I found your article - I have learned something.

And don't feel bad about being here to write not read. I feel bad about that too, like I feel like a taker sometimes. But I do read, just not as often as I feel like I should to show support for people that are kind enough to read this silly crap I put up. But, well, it is what it is, and we are who we are. So, meh. Glad you find my article too.

I have to say that this is one line of thinking that has never crossed my mind, in terms of categorizing people. I am almost ashamed to say I found it humorous. It was, for me, for lack of a better term, a refreshing way to consider things. I would even go so far as to say that this is not mainstream,,which makes it even more enlightening.

Great job,,,loved the 'imites' LOL

I put vaginamites on my sandwiches. Actually, they put themselves there. Where I come from vagina-mites are treatable with Permethrin 5 percent which is also known as Elimite :) I think vaginamites are also breifly mentioned in the Yeast farms of Asimovs universe. If not, they should have been. Im glad That Vaginamites are curable but Im equally glad that cockites are still incapable of any help - well except for the obvious treatment that is...

Shadesbreath profile image

Johsing, "Elimite," sounds like something an aussie cockite would say approaching closing time in response to advances from a drink-buying vaginamite.

Twilight Lawns, while I confess to laughing at that, for the purpose of maintaining some facade of propriety, I must frown and say something like, "Yes, that's amusing, but tragic that such backwards thinking still exists in our world..." or some such.

I wonder if I would watch that event. Would I have some grisly fascination and tune it, or would I be revolted and not?

Great satire on the lowest common denominator(LCD)--the sex drive--another LCD (Likeliest common drive).

Quite an admission of the real mind set of every individual on the planet...of course, what does one do with a cockaminimus-sodomaximus-medivaginamitasite?

Sorry, the dialogue was begging the question of the polyamourous sexite? Was it wrong to go there?

Randslam, on the point of what one does with a cockaminimus-sodomaximus-medivaginamitasite, I can only surmise that filming is the best course of action, for that is a most curious arrangement of proclivities and therefore a documentary could be made regarding the activities of such an individual from which one's scientific/anthropological/sociological credentials could be established and perhaps even the creation of a new sub-category of gender studies. They could even name it after you, Randslaminology. :)

Kallini, how about "leather" or "lizard" ?

really interesting hub. I voted up because it was great thought provoking research! I have a question for you. What is a person considered who doesn't have sex? A "absentite"?


Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 5 years ago from California Author

Yes, I think abstintite is probably just the right term. Although, I might still toss the abstinites into the virgin category mentioned above, virgins being "imites" and given that abstinance is what it often works out to be. :D


kallini2010 profile image

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada

I think another term is in order:

A prudite - a prude - the one who has sex but denies it or does not have sex, but wants to have it.

And how about having sex with yourself - Selfite? (the other two words that come to mind just make the "-ite" combinations slightly obscene even for my taste).


Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 5 years ago from California Author

What, like... masturbite? ROFL


kallini2010 profile image

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada

To show my complete ignorance - what is ROFL BTW?

Yes, I thought - masturbite or onanite - but it sounds so disgusting.

However, in the dictionary I came across (by chance, mind you)

there is such thing as zoolite. Yes, it does exist. No, it does not EXIST. Because a zoolite is a fossil animal.

And, naturally, my imagination went into the sexual perversions - however, I am not going to dwell on them any further than "perversite" - ...

I think you started with those things - things that are considered abnormal.

Abnormalite?

Wait, I think it is me.


Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 5 years ago from California Author

"rofl" if you really don't know, is just the slightly tuned up version of LOL. Rofl = rolling on floor laughing, which is hyperbole, of course, because I wasn't literally doing that, but, well, in chat, no one can hear you lol.

And yes, I'm sure it is you. :P


kallini2010 profile image

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada

Then you are a mentiroso (maybe mentirosito) and that is not a lie.

About lying - it is a good mental exercise to lie on a floor at least once a day and meditate.

Don't laugh.

Don't roll.

OK, I must start doing it myself. MMM, maybe after tango exercise. Is there any other dance when partners lean on each other? Chest to chest?

Wait, there is a word - tanguera, tanguero.

Well, that was a little linguistic trip across continents. It's funny that you wrote that like that. I woke up and got a new draft back from the artist doing my book cover who is in Spain, and then I get all this spanish in a hub comment. lol


kallini2010 profile image

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada

OK, then, I was worried, you might be offended that I called you "el mentiroso".

I got used to that word that it seems normal. Everything is normal in Toronto.

I only meant you are NOT rolling on the floor laughing. Yes, I know what hyperbole is.

Yes, I was playing with the words, that is all.

Again, you know it is normal for those who write:

Modernism - avant-gardism

Postmodernism - avant-gardism

Postism - making posts - arrière-gardism.

What the book is about, if I may ask?


Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 5 years ago from California Author

Nah, I'm pretty hard to offend, plus... I get jokes. And the ones I don't, well, if I find myself blinking into something I missed, I usually assume I have just missed it ... again. LOL. I do that enough to have confidence in my ability to miss stuff being the cause of my dismay rather than assuming hostility on the part of others. :)

And the book is a fantasy/sci fi story tracking two main characters on parallel destinies. A sorcerer on one planet is trying to discover the spells that will faciliate space travel, and a woman from Earth is on a spaceship trying to find some evil space critters. The story follows them both. If you're curious there's a link on my profile to my blog, the most recent has some of the cover art from the Spanish artist on it.

Shadesbreath 5 years ago from California Author

Yeah, no worries. That's why I didn't link it. I'm the same way. I know writers read (at least the good ones), but they aren't "readers" in the way critics are. I think that's why the symbiosis works between the two literary varieties, despite what seems like little more than potential for enmity.

lol--or, to quote Demetri Martin, LQTM (laughing quietly to myself)! I might have actually LOL'ed, but I have my favorite cockite sleeping next to me, and my vaginamite nature fixes my possible future sexual activity with her as my very, very tippy-top priority. I wouldn't want to wake her with my LOL--or, God forbid, my ROFLMFAO--for fear of discouraging said activity later on.

Always amusing to read your hubs.

Ladies & Gentlemen:

I have to apologize for being PITA (pain in the ass)

but that is how the whole thing began. I was waiting for my son to outgrow his fascination with pooh-pooh subjects, but then I realized it will never stop.

We never get tired of pooh-pooh vocabulary. I am not going to elaborate, you all know that certain words... just there to stay to express the height and depth and voltage of our emotions, something like: "Shit!"

But my lovely comment is not on that, being a writer (self-appointed), I read a book on "How to write" and the author suggested to refrain from LOLs and such. Not only that, but from indicating where the reader has to laugh. It is respect for the reader's intelligence, who should be clever enough to figure out when and how ...

I am not saying that you all have to stop using whatever you are using.

I am just sharing. I made it a rule for myself. No abbreviations.

I remember a very old joke about the sense of humour, when the listener is instructed beforehand:

"Laugh after the word "spacecraft".

spacecraft (laughter follows)

But we digress.

In the caving world, are stalagmites and stalactites equivalent to cockites and vaginamites (respectively)?


Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 5 years ago from California Author

KateWest, me too. You peel off the label, you can actually see what's inside. Doesn't mean you will always like what you see, but at least you can look and decide for yourself. :)

Kallini, I agree for the most part with you. If you have to tell people when to laugh, it's not funny. Unless, of course that's the joke, sort of meta-writing or meta-comedy (like the spacecraft thing). But, for chat, I think the habit evolved for a reasonably legitimate reason, in the absence of body language, facial expression and sound. Emoticons an "lol" etc. serve a communicative purpose, not because people are too dim to get jokes, but because the chat function of the Internet includes a lot of writers (and readers) who aren't as facile with language, and, in addition, encourages speed of writing that is not conducive to the care and revision required for the type of concise prose for which no external levers (like "lol") are needed for added clarity. Or something.

Thanks cooldad, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for commenting too.

Autstinstar, I would say the cave and the stalagmite are more representative of the pair you suggest, with stalactites suggesting the culmination of the experience.

I don’t know how I missed this, but I did. And now I am sorry because I have a question and I don’t know if it is too late to ask it. But I will anyway, since there is no charge:

Is it not true that, by definition, a sodomite is also a cocktite? Surely this must be an important point that needs to be defined?

John, you are such an intelligent and humane person that you make me wish I was living next door to you, so that we could share the occasional beer and chew the fat when we are not vaginamitating our loved ones ;-))


Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 5 years ago from California Author

LOL, De Greek, leave it to you to spot the weak spot in my little argument here. However, I will point out that technically, one does not have to be cockite to be a sodomite. Strictly speaking, if, one were only to fancy , erm, playing pitcher, as it were, and having no desire to catch, also as it were, then, well, I believe I can say I've made my case.

As for the beer and fat chewing, I'd love it. You'd be a great neighbor to have. We'd have a blast. Imagine you sitting out in my driveway with us, tipping them back under the shade of a corn tree, California redneck style. :)

It's not really a demise of morality is it? Just a play on words. I wonder what might happen if you put them as your tags. If someone were to type in 'cockite', it would bring them to Hubpages. so congrats on the originality score :). Vaginamite is in the urban dictionary and sodomite is in the Bible. The pics are funny though and a nice touch. Did you draw them?


Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 5 years ago from California Author

No, it's not really the demise of morality. It's me being sarcastic to make a point. So, no worries for morality. At least not yet. And, I had no idea vaginamite was in the urban dictionary. I went and looked, thinking perhaps I was on to something that was already a growing concept, but alas, on there it is a play on the exclamatory "dynamite!" So, alas, I am still alone in my use here. Which is okay. I still think my version has more rhetorical value, perhaps one day it will float to the surface and change the hard-line minds of so many. Or not. Whatever. I just speak em as I see em, you know?

Anyway, thanks for reading and commenting, and yes, the pictures are mine as well. In the Louvre I am fairly sure I shall never be, but it's fun to round out an argument or story from time to time. :)

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 4 years ago from TEXAS

When I saw the hub title (over on Dimitris' site) my first thought was of Vegemite and I honestly - and all too causally & hastily - simply categorized the other 2 '-ties' into some kind of other foreign foods eaten by Britishers and Aussies. Thought perhaps Nutella has another synonym of which I am still unaware, such as sodomite or cockite, due to its yummy chocolaty, nutty flavor. Thought perhaps these '-ites" are just brand-names across the pond or something. At times being too analytical does spoil the fun!

However, all that vanished quickly almost as soon as I clicked the link and arrived over here - though I admit that the illustration of you, the vaginamite, holding what looks like a taco did perpetuate my misconception briefly. It was clever of you, I must say - in case of any content police lurking around.

From the beginning paragraph on, though, I didn't stop laughing and shaking my head affirmatively! This is the funniest, cleverest - and most accurate - hub I've read recently. I can't imagine how I missed it before. Maybe the thought of reading about strange foreign foods just didn't hit my hot button when it was first announced among the 'new hubs' of those I follow. Or maybe it was during a slump in my pursuing them. Whatever - I missed a good one.

I have to also compliment you, not just on the quality of writing (and illustrating) but that - in spite of the subject material, it is totally non-offensive. I'm not all that sure about its being the demise of morality. Nothing in it is new or recently practiced!

I dare anyone (alive, at least) not to have considered the premises here! The older I've gotten, the more aware and sure of the fact that people are dominantly sexual in nature. Maslow probably mentioned that somewhere in his 'hierarchy of needs' in fact!

I notice my squirrels outside (when they're not haunting my attic) busily fulfilling their hierarchy of needs, and sex & procreation are right up there next to foraging for nuts and bugs and watching out for hungry cats when the 'season' rolls around! Nevermind that the little critters are pretty to look at. Don't see them with cameras or paintbrushes capturing the aesthetics of it all. Nosirree! They are tending to major business. I realize that humans are a few steps up the food chain and evolutionary scale, but - not all that far!! Plus, we aren't limited by 'seasons' for it.

So thank you for making my day vibrate - with laughter, John! Great good fun! :-)

And thank you for the lovely comment about me you made on Dimitris' hub! Hugs!

I mightn't have investigated, thinking it was vegemite, if it hadn't been 1) written by you and 2) recommended by De Greek. hehe.

My own philosophy about having or losing readers for one reason or another, though, is pretty much the same as it is about most things, that it's better to have willingness and genuine interest than not and better to do without otherwise. And if there are other factors influencing it - those are surely valid and not to be resisted (such as other commitments, which are definitely valid factors!)

One of these days I ought to curtail my comments and/or use them as hubs. But they would never FIT other circumstances as well as they do when spontaneously responding to a good hub, like here and this!

I just looked up 'purple squirrel' and think I'm in love. A marvelous appellation! Could be applied in various other situations than job applicants. How about to prospective mates or even roommates? How about to plumbers and roofers? Any human situation in which one's expectations and hopes exceed the possibilities? Oh what a good term. And it's been around for 10 or so years and I've just now found it, thanks to you! Oh yes. I'm thinking of possible opportunities to use it in real life. hehe. Great grandkids might be impressed! hehe

Anyway, it's delightful and I thank you. And thanks for grouping me with the elegant TL! Even his illiterate slang seems rather dignified and if one imagines him verbalizing it in that melodious voice of his - wow! , - definitely so~!

Ian - if there is an expiration date for comments it may be if the commenter has quit the Hubpages. Otherwise, I dunno.

Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 4 years ago from California Author

Nellieanna, what you have described there with "willingness and genuine interest" is what, in the sales world, is called a "qualified prospect." A lot of sales people are afraid to do that, to ask the questions of a suspect to see if they really are interested and willing or at least could be. For fear of "losing" them, they work accounts that end up nothing in the end, or, as you said, they be "better to do without otherwise." Same goes for writing, and I agree with you 100%. (And don't feel bad about the long comments. I do that in the forums all the time. Someone says something that I think warrants a genuine, thoughtful response, so I reply with one--or what serves as one in my mind anyway lol--and, well, it is what it is. (Usually unread lololol).

And you are quite right about using that term for lots of stuff. Isn't that fun? A man sits upon the mossy bank of a lonely river, nestled amongst the mushroom caps and towering pines. He gazes into the misty clouds churning from where the waterfall thunders into the crystal pool. Staring. A woman steps from beneath the canopy at his back and watches him stare so assiduously into the fog. At last she asks, "What are you looking for?" "A purple squirrel," came his reply.

Or something. Fun. :)

Only homosexuals identify themselves with their sexual activity. People do not need to advertise being a heterosexual because it is automatically assumed that females and males are made for each other as determined by nature. On the other hand, homosexuals need to advertise themselves in order to recruit partners.


Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 4 years ago from California Author

I'm not sure what advertising you are speaking of, but whatever it refers to, I take it you are unfamiliar with bars, clubs and pick up joints. Nor, perhaps, have you heard of E-harmony or any of a hundred other hetero-centric "advertising" platforms. You also my not recognize that much of human behavior (male and female, regardless of orientation), particularly from the mid-teens through the thirties and even forties, is dedicated to attracting potential sex partners. To assert that the behavior is SIGNIFICANTLY different because the target is same sex is to ignore pretty much everything known about human pair bonding rituals.

Heh heh, Pam, don't feel bad, everything goes under the radar these days. HP got so populous, it's pretty much impossible to keep up with all the people I love reading. I've resigned myself to random discoveries like you just had with this one. Is what is it is. LOL.

Adrienne, this hub is just crazysauce in the skillet of my attempt at truth. Grab some sourdough and dip in. And I'm glad you are woman. Women are awesome. Vaginamites across the planet will agree with me, and I can speak for them with absolute authority.

Millionaire Tips, it's true we do. I've read some psychology stuff that seems to suggest we kind of have to; it's a survival thing, "Poison not Poison," "Nice animal ... mean animal" etc. Our subconscious mind filters out so much visual and auditory input just in the course of walking down the street. It's all biology to just box something up so we don't have to think about it. But, sometimes, we do it based on the wrong conclusions, or based on conclusions that don't add up in the face of new information. Etc. I know, I'm preaching to the choir here. LOL. Sorry. Thanks for reading and commenting.

Ah, and all this time, I thought all males were simply biological creatures that wanted to protect the longevity of their species, hence, always thinking about having some might with their vaginamite (maybe tonight) thought productivity. I think right now, I'm just a write-a-mite. Love this hub, very interesting and some thumbs up.

You thought all males were simply biological creatures, but I think they are simply simple. That's speaking from experience of me being one, so I have some authority on the matter. :D

Thanks for popping by. You're the hub's first openly proclaimed write-a-mite.

Well, Troll, one sort of vegemite just likes that sandwich spread they have in Australia, the other is a criminal.

Okay I get it. Go for the "ite of choice".

One comment... A guy can be a cockite too!

Yes, Laneoh, you are right. But then, to use that label uniformly would suggest no one was making judgments anymore. While nice for society, and certainly for individuals, it hardly makes for good satire. :D

Shadesbreath; I am afraid at the rate that I am reading your hubs; I may soon be cracking my ribs from laughter. :P

Well, good. I hope you find your way to lots of them and keep laughing. I giggled my way through tons of this silliness over the years. Don't let the odd political rant or grammar thing scare you off. Those were accidents, spasms of... whatever that is. Mostly I have committed carefully to WTF and LOL.
