half-oranges – (en)

Most people just blindly grabbed at whatever there is, and then it all evaporated and fell apart. People always need to find things to do while waiting to die, and so, there is a conviction, told by the bible-civilization, that woman completes man [as a man, I’m not sure the inverse is also working].
As usually with convictions, I have a problem with that.
I’m asking myself what I can and can not do without the other half, and I think I can do anything. If I want to talk, I talk with my friends. If I want to listen, I listen to my friends. If I want to laugh, I laugh with my friends, and so on. So almost everything I can get from my half-orange, I can get it from my friends, male or female.
Following this logic it only could be said that I need my other half for sex, and/or to pump “units”.
Sex, nowadays, could be removed from the equation, for whether we like it or not, condone it or not, there are countless men who get their sexual urges subdued from other men [I believe they call it: anus plays vagina]. And I’d go even farther. Safe? Think about those women used to artificial penis with which they get an orgasm or twelve, because the body cannot really differentiate between a penis made of flesh —and that made of plastic— where pleasure is concerned. Or, the most sublime, men that find in the main a used-up cougar to be inferior to a porn subscription [and a hand].
So. What is left?
Only the little bastards [also called offspring]. Otherwise, both man and woman are easily replaceable by any random person of any random gender at any random time.
Then the conviction evaporates and fells apart. Why half orange and not the whole orange?
I may be wrong [everyone goes lunatic from time to time] … so I would like to know your point on the above. That’s all.
Half-oranges – Dugutigui

Acerca de Dugutigui

In the “Diula” language in Mali, the term « dugutigui » (chief of the village), literally translated, means: «owner of the village»; «dugu» means village and «tigui», owner. Probably the term is the result of the contraction of «dugu kuntigui» (literally: chief of the village).

  1. With or without the so called “other half” I have always been (and felt) complete. I have never understood people who say that without a man/woman by their side they do not feel whole or complete. Poor creatures!

    There’s nothing like a REAL man once in a while… 😉

    And maybe not only once in a while… I don’t think there’s anything wrong with loving a person and feeling that he/she is an inseparable part of one’s life. 😉

  4. Logically speaking, we don’t need one another unless to produce said offspring.
    However, some would concur we need that other half for emotional well-being. It all depends on each individual, I think.

    Great post! Very thought-provoking!

      You’re probably right. And that could also be the reason 2 out of 3, better 3 out of 2 find it all evaporated after a while 🙂
      Thank you very much for your nice opinion!

    I think the fairy tale of one real person existant to complete the other is just an invention of moralists. As long as people feel unperfect, they are open for any proposals from somewhere above, whereever this might be, in heaven or just Cosmopolitan.
    As long as people are convinced themselves in using substitutes (instead of playing with lust in different ways) until they meet their missing half, they will feel unperfect, guilty and whatelse, to make them ready and willing for consumption of ideas – and to pay for to get them, of course.

      You’re absolutely right!
      Considering that sexual impulse is absorbent, rampant, “not subject to reason” and, therefore, encourages disobedience and disorder, it is not good for paying taxes. So a society based on family and absolute respect for authority (read: paying taxes without a word), can not afford the free play of sexual pleasure. Even St. Augustine clearly acknowledges it when he says that “sexuality is not bad per se, but must be fought and regulated because it encourages disobedience” …
      I wrote a lengthy essay on sex & freedom that could be interesting for you ( if you have time 🙂 ) https://damantigui.wordpress.com/2013/04/17/whats-wrong-with-sex-en/
      The problem is no matter how big the lie, repeat it often enough and the masses will regard it as the truth. And the people making a living on our perspiration know it’s always a much easier task to educate uneducated people than to re-educate the mis-educated.
      Thanks for you brilliant comment!

    Hola! Tu artículo me confunde un poco, no es que piense que sea desacertado, al contrario, creo que tienes toda la razón. Creo que nuestra capacidad de amar parte de nosotros mismos, qué tanto nos conocemos, qué tan cómodos estamos siendo nosotros mismos, que tan completos estamos. En la medida que ahondamos en nuestro interior más profundamente podremos ahondar en las relaciones con otros.
    Es necesario e indispensable una pareja para nuestra felicidad, para nada, sin embargo me gusta creer que puedo compartir mi ser con alguien, y con eso me refiero a todo, cuerpo, mente, alma, encontrar a alguien y saber que desde ese momento mi vida será distinta, pensar que seremos dos seres completos, con toda nuestra complejidad, intentando vivir como uno. Pero qué sé yo, una romántica sin remedio, jodida, pero qué se le hace.

    Un abrazo

      Técnicamente, una persona no puede en realidad ser amada. Lo más cerca que llegamos es a amar algo (o, si hay suerte, “algos”) acerca de esa persona. Si ese es el caso ¿no es el amor, entonces, condicional?

      Si amas a tu pareja por el mero hecho de que sea, por ejemplo, un bromista, y después, se acabasen las bromas, ¿aún seguirías queriendo a tu amante? Tomemos, como ejemplo, los ex-amantes: ¿Qué tienen en común? La respuesta a eso es lo que te encantó de ellos (y, probablemente, todavía te encanta) —no ellos.

      Uno puede amar una cosa por su utilidad, su belleza, o la posición social que la cosa le da. Pero nunca la cosa en sí. Lo que uno realmente ama, cuando afirma amar a una comida, son los beneficios nutricionales que esa comida tiene, o bien, el sabor que recibe de la comida —no es la comida en sí misma —si así fuese no se la comería.

      Un extraño se encuentra con otro. No se pide ni se siente amor. Pero después de unos meses, semanas, o minutos de “llegar a conocerse el uno al otro” los dos sienten lo que llaman amor (por la otra parte). Si fuese posible amar a una persona —no las cosas (carácter, creencias, vistas, etc.) acerca de esa persona— ¿por qué, entonces, vemos la fase de “llegar a conocerse” como fundamental?

      El punto más simple que se me ocurre, para apoyar mi argumento, es el odio. Se nos dice que el odio es lo contrario del amor. Ahora, la pregunta es, ¿puedes realmente odiar a algo o alguien sin ninguna razón (consciente o no) en absoluto? Si tu respuesta es “No”, entonces ¿se puede amar algo o alguien sin ninguna razón (consciente o no) en absoluto (es decir, sin que cumpla una condición o seis)?

      Ya sea intencional o no, conscientemente o no, casi siempre nos ganamos o ser amados o ser odiados. (El amor es un producto de una condición conocida. Ser amado es haber cumplido a una condición o cuatro.)

      Total un cuento chino.

    I am a woman, so I can’t speak for a man about this, but I will say, if my husband had not been a complete person when I met him seven years ago, I would not have chosen him as a partner. I would not want to be in the position of being the better half (or even the worst half) of any relationship.

    • Dugutigui dijo:

      Well, that was more or less what the post was all about. Woman or men are non-complementary. They should be full human beings and then do whatever it please to them. Not necessarily needing the other-half to be complete person, as they used to teach us.
      Thanks for your comment!

    Nothing like two whole oranges dealing with life one beside the other. Two halves trying to stick together, it’s always slippery… In my opinion ! 🙂
