It’s a good question. What are human beings all here for anyway? Is it simply to continue the human race? Or do humans have some greater purpose, or higher function? It’s a question that’s been tackled, to varying degrees, by philosophers, historians, artists, writers and theologians. We can all stop now, though, because James Poulos has the answer:
Making babies. Because LOL you thought we were talking about women as if they were “human beings” like everyone else? Haha silly reader. You must be a woman.
Of course, men are typically involved in reproduction also, but of course that’s not the “purpose” of men. Men are… men. Their existence is a given, a necessity, the baseline off of which everything else is relative. It would be silly to even ask what their “purpose” is, because having a “purpose” implies service to some greater thing — “purpose” being the reason a thing is done. It’s silly to ask what men as a class are for, because men as a class simply are. They are full-fledged human beings — neutral human beings, without all the other signifiers that make them different and thereby “for” some purpose other than just existing. Women, being not-men, must be purposed for some thing relative to men. Hence babies. And then women start getting uppity, and then abortion, and then chaos — or at least that’s as close as I can get to what in holy Hell Mr. Poulos is even talking about.
Can we at least agree that annoying the entire internet with asinine and unreadable articles is what James Poulos’ appears to be for?
