    If we can get Obama and Putin to put down the weapons, oil up and do some dick fencing instead perhaps we can avert WWIII and close down the Pentagon and Kremlin so the US and Russia can both have world class medical systems instead

    It sure does make me think, Dr Suzy! You mention often and in The Bonobo Way, your latest book, if there is a conflict between the male bonobos they often suddenly turn it into sexual contact and the fight dissolves!

    You say, “Watching bonobos shows us that LGBTQA sexual diversity is utterly organic and natural, adding to the richness of our individual lives and the ecology of our society. It may even be the key to peace on Earth…”

    The females are sexual with each other and noticeably stand by each other more than the non-bi chimp family as well.

    Although you point out their bi-ness and gayness is not an exact parallel to humans, there is a validation of openness which does suggest natural health!!!

    This whole bonobo-as role-model concept, makes me think about the whole war problem which seems to be that the folks who denounce so viciously gay as ‘sin’ are the also the ones rushing to bomb and war … as though the two are directly related–and as you say peace could be directly related to a healthy and prolific sex life.

    And the ‘genocide’ of sorts towards bonobos… makes me worry even more! To wipe them out would put them out of sight out of mind. This is so crucial to save the bonobos and to move humans forward to first, not targeting gays and a world where gay pride is safe from attack but also to be a society where there are more blurs between labels similar to bonobos, resulting–similar to bonobos–in more peaceful coexistence in community.

    I’ve spoken to more clients at the Block Institute, as a phone sex and cam therapist here, who identify as straight but their fantasies and sex life do indeed include same sex activity… I am seeing how common this is. The bonobos would explain why. It’s organic and natural. Plus can strengthen good relationships overall in the group.

    Bonobos are poly, these days there’s a growing “support group” for poly folk and a lot of “processing” of jealousies and other conflicts of emotions which may just be growing pains of the massive coming out of poly people in general into the public awareness … But, I hope that the bonobos will add to the understanding that all that need not be so dramatic–There’s a classic and popular book in the sex positive community called, “The Ethical Slut” … there should be a new book called “The Ethical Bonoboesque Slut”… you’d be the one to write it!

    Okay, well thank you for your consistent awareness and giving voice to so many dire social issues and the compassion and wisdom you bring to your readers! Thank you also for your many efforts to help save the bonobos from extinction while expositing a peace manifesto. :)

    Very nice, the bonobo would indeed be a great mascot for the LGBTQA culture. They’re sexually liberated (although highly endangered), and in the new millennium where people are still trying to fight for the basic right of marriage, it might be nice to have a animal that everyone can relate to.

      I guess, my statement is void, the SCOTUS just legalized same sex marriage across the country. :D
