Creationists reject Darwin’s theory of evolution on the grounds that it is “just a theory”. This is a valid criticism: evolution is indeed merely “a theory”, albeit one with ten billion times more credence than the theory of creationism - although, to be fair, the theory of creationism is more than just a theory. It’s also a fairy story. And children love fairy stories, which is presumably why so many creationists are keen to have their whimsical gibberish taught in schools.

life hack: get a tattoo. if the people at the job interview notice it and look concerned, laugh a little and explain “it’s just temporary.”  months later if your boss asks why you lied and said it was a temporary tattoo, stare off into the distance and whisper with a tremulous voice the poor excuse for truth your subconscious has been fighting for its entire insignificant existence: “everything is temporary.”

Seriously. Just look in a fucking health textbook.Its literally a bundle of nerves for the sole purpose of pleasure. That’s it.

I think it would be an interesting study to determine what level of adequate sexual education was imparted to the boys who make these idiotic “jokes”. I wonder what the prevalence of this attitude is for those who received a sex education which amounted to “Because Jesus would cry if you touch each other before a Christian marriage and enjoy it” vs actual biology/anatomy education. 
Because it isn’t a difficult concept to grasp.
