Relationships in a World of Individualism

  • rWorld

    The rWorld is about more than Dale Kuehne's book Sex and the iWorld.
    The rWorld is a New England based, non-profit (in formation), that is composed of a growing number of people and organizations from many faith and ideological backgrounds worldwide. We believe that much of the fulfillment for which women and men are looking can be found by enhancing the quality of our relationships. While the individual freedom we enjoy in the West is a gift, the love and intimacy for which humans yearn will not be found in self-serving materialism or hedonism, but in a variety of healthy relationships.

    Professor of Politics and The Richard L. Bready Chair for Ethics, Economics, and the Common Good at Saint Anselm College, Manchester, NH.

    In this blog I'm highlighting signposts of the world in which we presently reside as a means of helping promote a civil, and meaningful dialogue about what kind of world in which we wish to live. I am particularly interested in exploring how might we reconcile the individual good and the common good, and where reconciliation isn’t possible, which should take precedence and why.

Humans now have 58 Genders … and Counting

Posted by Dale Kuehne on February 22, 2014

Facebook now provides users the opportunity to choose from 58 different genders.

Your tells are so obvious
Shoulders too broad for a girl
Keeps you reminded
Helps you to remember where you come from

You want them to notice the ragged ends of your summer dress
You want them to see you like they see every other girl
They just see a faggot
They hold their breath not to catch the sick

Rough surf on the coast, I wish I could have spent the whole day alone
Rough surf on the coast, I wish I could have spent the whole day alone
Rough surf on the coast, I wish I could have spent the whole day alone with you
With you
With you

You’ve got no c**t in your strut
You’ve got no hips to shake
And you know it’s obvious
But we can’t choose how we’re made

You want them to notice the ragged ends of your summer dress
You want them to see you like they see every other girl
They just see a faggot
They hold their breath not to catch the sick

Rough surf on the coast, I wish I could have spent the whole day alone
Rough surf on the coast, I wish I could have spent the whole day alone
Rough surf on the coast, I wish I could have spent the whole day alone with you
With you
With you

You want them to notice the ragged ends of your summer dress
You want them to see you like they see every other girl
They just see a faggot
They hold their breath not to catch the sick

Rough surf on the coast, I wish I could have spent the whole day alone
Rough surf on the coast, I wish I could have spent the whole day alone
Rough surf on the coast, I wish I could have spent the whole day alone with you
With you
With you
