    Instinct can only guide you.. choices are what makes us in the end. Anorexics have the instinct to eat, but they choose not to.. Maybe I'm missing your point Sy.
    Left-handedness is not something someone consciously chooses. Yes, " you instinctively pick up whichever one you lean toward". That's not much of a choice. I'm right-handed and I could choose to try and become a lefty, but I will instinctually use my right hand in a time of need (I dunno, like defending myself or whatever) if I don't make a conscious effort. Your father learned to use his other hand better but I'm not saying instinct can't be somewhat tamed. It's just that in the beginning it's not something kids choose consciously.


    Nocap : Instinct is a factor in this topic, imo. I was giving an example.

Whichever one your brain initially favors, that's the one you're pretty much stuck with. Apart from extreme circumstances of course (losing, injuring an arm, etc.). But if you try and teach a person to use their other hand, they're not going to become a person who uses that hand constantly.
    I don't think you or Kiwi know what you're talking about.
    At least she's got evidence though...
    What do you have?

    I don't think perversion exists as an objective concept, only as a relative value judgment and a sociological phenomenon. See the definition: "the alteration of something from its original course, meaning, or state to a distortion or corruption of what was first intended." The key part, of course, is the "first intent." What is the first intent? What is the intent of this forum's existence? You can't tell me it's to discuss typology, because that's just something you came up with, and (barring consequences), I can just as easily ignore it and post some animal porn or pictures of murdered children all over the place. Of course, this would lead me to become banned and an outcast, but you can't in good conscience point to me and say "you're a pervert!" and justify it logically. You can't even say I'm a horrible person because someone might just disagree with you. What you can say however, is that I'm harming the order of this constructed, artifically-directed (in terms of its "first intent") environment and breaking the rules, and thus, "perversion" becomes something little more than "what the laws frown upon".
    Not really.

    Or right-handedness is a choice. We could always switch to left if we broke our right arms.

    Btw I'm talking about writing with your left/right hand, not anything else. I just had to post since I disagreed with the hand writing thing.
