I'm not the only one that has been a virgin on their wedding night. I went for many years celibate. It is not impossible, just difficult. It is even posible for Actual People. It just requires someone that is willing to control their desires rather than be controled by them.
Of course, there are many, such as yourself evidently, that see no reason not to indulge those desires. Fine. But there are many who feel that it is better not to indulge those desires for at least a while. Why do you have a problem with that?
Many, if not most, religions say that it is better to wait for marriage to have sex. If that standard is adhered to then many of the problems/dangers of sex would be effectively gone. So why shouldn't a religious figure be allowed and expected to put forward that view of the problem.
Some Actual People can and do practice celibacy outside of marriage. Why can't everybody else? (Not why don't
they, but why can't
they. I fully understand the reasons for choosing not to.)
Kit is one of those people who are willing and able to fit his life into the mold that someone else has laid out for him ... and thinks that everyone should be willing and able to do the same, despite the evidence of his senses.
Yes and no. I am willing and able to fit into a lifestyle that has been laid out because I believe it is the lifestyle that will bring me the most happiness, even if it requires discipline, sacrifice, and hard work. And yes, I think everybody should do the same because I believe it would bring them more happiness in the long run also. But I'm not silly enough to think that everyone would be willing to do it. Many people only care about short term pleasure, or are happy enough where they are that they aren't interested in anything more. And many more just don't believe that the lifestyle I believe in will actually bring them more happiness.
If I ever was naive enough to think that everyone would be willing, two years of looking for anyone interested, and sharing my beliefs with those that were, would have cured me of that delusion.
