Your problem can be summed up in an aphorism, but the cure requires a book.

The idea that the market will solve such things as environmental concerns, as our racial divides, as our class distinctions, our problems with educating and incorporating one generation of workers into the economy after the other when that economy is changing; the idea that the market is going to heed all of the human concerns and still maximise profit is juvenile. It’s a juvenile notion and it’s still being argued in my country passionately and we’re going down the tubes. And it terrifies me because I’m astonished at how comfortable we are in absolving ourselves of what is basically a moral choice. Are we all in this together or are we all not?

Everything is in process. Everything—every tree, every blade of grass, all the animals, insects, human beings, buildings, the animate and the inanimate—is always changing, moment to moment.
The next time someone tells you that you only deserve what you work for, tell them to go find a new earth, reconstruct the entire edifice of human civilization as we know it from the ground up—inventing everything as they go along—and only then will they deserve to have such things as a cell phone, mathematics, air-conditioning, modern medicine, and the like.
The problem isn’t that self-identified bisexuals who message exclusively men or women are being deceptive; it’s that a tiny multiple-choice list of sexual identities doesn’t capture the breadth and depth of the human sexual experience.
