I had a colleague once upon a time that drove me insane, I can (several years later) still remember the relief I felt when she left. She's coming back, which is bad enough in itself but yesterday I found out she's coming on nights with us for a couple of months. I don't think I can bear it. I think I might actually cry if she's as bad as she was last time. Thankfully I have a lot of sick leave, I think I might be using it.

I am glad the charity exposed his pathetic scam.
A conservative minister here staged a fake citizenship ceremony (complete with women wearing hijab) a few months ago. He got civil servants to stand in for people of colour and everything.

Promiscuous is a judgment of sorts, too, because there is no objective standard for what promiscuous is. I rarely if ever hear someone describe themself as currently being promiscuous. People either use it to describe other people or sometimes themselves in the past. I don't think it ever has a positive or neutral meaning. Also, what is the reason you would even need to comment on someone else's sexual history? Whether you comment by calling them a slut/ho or promiscuous., the problem is that you'e commenting.

^ what's the difference between making a judgement based on their sexual involvement versus judgement in any other part of their life? Sure you'll say judging someone is wrong, but I find it hard to believe that there is a single person who doesn't do it. At least internally if nothing else.

People have a different moral compass. Just as someone may find one way a person behaves as being morally wrong, one may find a persons sexual behavior to be morally wrong.

I think sex is a very close, personal, intimate thing. I do not take it casually. Based on my feelings, I have opinions when I know of people behaving in what I consider a sexually, morally wrong way.

That's my opinion. To say a person doesn't base judgement on their own convictions is ridiculous. It's human nature to do so.

iroc, of course we all make judgments every day, but some are necessary while others are not. Making a judgment that someone has had too many sexual partners for you to feel comfortable being intimate with them is necessary for your own mental/physical/spiritual health. Making a judgment that someone seems to be very angry and volatile and so you need to avoid them as much as possible is a necessary judgment for your own protection. Having an involuntary internal reaction to someone bragging that they like threesomes and swinging and have had hundreds of sexual partners is human nature and probably unavoidable.

However, labelling some random person as "promiscuous" seems to me to be unnecessary - you likely do not know their entire sexual history unless they tell you, in which case it is that oversharing that is more of the problem. So if you are not in a position to be intimate with them, what is the purpose in deciding that this person is "promiscuous?" (Assuming you are not a medical person investigating the possibility of disease or a therapist or counsellor or social worker concerned about risky behaviour or someone in the legal field investigating these issues, etc.) To me, that's the same as labelling people you see "fat" or "ugly" - sure, people do it all the time, but after a while it turns YOU ugly on the inside if you're constantly focussing on the faults of others.

I agree with you that my personal belief is that sex should be saved for close personal relationships, and the ideal is to enjoy it only within the context of a monogamous relationship. That is what I choose to do and what I think is best for most if not all people. Short of a marriage, I believe it is extremely important to have sex responsibly and limit the number of partners, due to the social and medical consequences of not doing so. However, I know not everybody makes that choice for various reasons, and as long as they are not my husband or sleeping with my husband, or a child of mine breaking my rules, it doesn't directly affect me. I also believe that casual sex can best be stopped by supporting and empowering people rather than focussing on their behaviour.
