In such cases: 1. There are legitimate over-arching concerns about both physiological and mental diseases which are shared and/or transmitted within the context of intimate and sexual relationships. 2. There are legitimate over-arching concerns about disparities relating to: vulnerability, power, control and domination --- and how to promote both personal and communal integrity in the face of such disparities. 3. There is a great need for the integration of objective and reflexive paradigms. However, there are relatively few leaders able to facilitate such integrations --- because many (even if not most) leaders have specialized in in domineering ways. 4. Political, religious, scholarly and scientific histories are full of the wrecks of domineering people's unilateral efforts to settle their conflicts and battles over how people "should" think, feel and behave --- when they are confronted with humane (but unconventional) intimacy and sexuality. 5. Domineering people do NOT unilaterally win confrontations with true-lovers --- because true-lovers make it evident that there is no integrity in unilaterally determining the outcome of any confrontation with any person. Such honest clarity undermines domineering people's efforts to be in control through the use of dishonest means. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
