There is a theory that modern life creates over socialization leading to soul killing normalization and conformity. The herd instinct. My need for social interaction requires that I adhere to accepted norms of behavior. In adapting my persona to fit into my tribe I sometimes surrender my uniqueness in favor of sameness. My social needs can interfere with my idiosyncratic needs. Therefore I have compartmentalized my wants and needs in the interest of social mobility. I exist in several different worlds simultaneously. Spiritual. Physical. Sexual. Professional. Vocational. Volunteer.
Outside of Society
Now more than ever I am grateful to be outside the social norm. I like to keep the TV on closed captioning with the sound off while I work. I get most of my real news and information online and I can feel the energy of the national political dog and pony shows. I can’t stand to see any of the Clinton’s faces, it actually physically affects me in a sickly way. I feel robbed by the Clintons and I want my money back. On the other hand I am a student of history and fascism is never really that good of a program. I am an ex-political junkie who is not voting for the first time in my life. I am outside because I refuse to be a part of over socialization into the mainstream culture.
Social Intercourse Via Blogging
More and more I am receiving social, spiritual and sexual gratification from writing these blogs. What really makes my life happen socially is when I get an actual phone call from one of you about a blog I have written. I can feel people out there. I know from my Google Analytics how many visitors hit each page. I know that my sexual topics get the greatest number of hits. This is my new socialization gratification.
Naturism Prevents Oversocialization
In my opinion wearing unnecessary clothing is unnecessary over socialization. I walk around my villa and backyard naked. Naturism and nudity are not sexual per se with me. My life is seuxal. I am never going to self-identify as gay or straight again I am just going to say that I am a sexual person.
Maybe I should begin self-identifying as a blogger. Or perhaps cultural critic? I need a new self-identity because the old words are irrelevant now. We are all liberated lovers doing big time dancing on the table top of life.
