    I've seen an article claiming that humans were actually closer to bonobos than to chimps, and suggesting that this idea should give people hope. As though we were all suffering from a collective self-image problem, "I'm a chimp; I was born a chimp, and I'll always be a chimp, and there's no use fighting it", believing ourselves to be a chip off the old chimp block, when in reality, we were all beautiful bonobo swans, just waiting for someone to awaken us to our true nature.

    "Oh, thank you, now that I know my true heritage, I can finally let out my inner bonobo, and together, we will heal society."
    Obviously, you would get an F in your "Intro To Being Meta" college class.

    Hate sex? Never heard of it.



    “Tension-reducing” sex among bonobos is most often not about fun. It is not about enthusiastic consent, but coercion on threat of aggression. Like humans, we know that bonobos have preferred sexual partners. But the social friction most likely occurs between two individuals who are not close or friendly. Bonobos are therefore required to offer sexual contact to individuals they do not like. Faced with an agitated, aggressive male you do not care for, how do you women feel about offering copulation to calm him? And men, how do you feel about offering a penis to rub or your rump for the same? This is the bonobo way.
    I'm glad I'm not a bonobo.

    Hate sex means having sex with someone you hate.

    This all seems abnormal to me, this is contrary to my experience but also what I've read in Berne and Fromm.

    Meta-Chimp Test

    The chimp cells have begun metastasizing to your brain. In a matter of weeks, you'll forget that you were ever human. You want to prepare for your future as a chimp: What do you do?

    A) Transport yourself ASAP to the most chimp-friendly wild environment you can. You want to live free.
    B) Turn yourself and power-of-attorney over to animal control. The important thing is others' safety first.
    C) Stock up on aluminum foil. I don't know why you would do this, but someone's going to want it as an option...
    D) Hire @Cat Brainz to build a rocket for you. Travel around the solar system. You won't know what it is, but you'll still get to be a chimp in zero G! Bye, bonobos!

    I picked D.

    That doesn't sound very appealing.

    Im honestly flattered you think I can build a rocket . By the way I dont blame you for picking D at all since it is a rather more shall we say interesting result than the other 3 plus we can put a camera on your head and observe your chimp mind slowly get madder and madder in the confines of this rocket but then I do care for the rights of living beings so I shall make my rocket chimp friendly such as installing climbing frames, poop throwing areas (Im combining A and D and putting other chimps in with you as its a experiment to see how semi-sapient animals thrive in isolation) and then you shall have cameras implanted into your eyes so your eyes are always taking photographs and replying them back to Earth what happens on board the rocket and what you see and we may even send to en route to Mars .
