Sexism, privacy, sexuality, choices, those are subjects that resurface in our era.
Some of us think that in 2018 those subjects shouldn’t even be a problem.
The reality proves otherwise but there is a place where it’s already accepted and welcomed.
Sexuality and gender became extremely divisive topics in the 20th and 21st centuries. It began with the criminalization of homosexuality and subsequent struggle against its state-mandated oppression.
More recently the issues of transgender and non-binary individuals have received the same divisive narratives but on a more social level, with significant institutions mostly giving a more passive non-acknowledgment.
The Church of Satan has officially stated policy of acceptance of all forms of human sexual expression between consenting adults. Homosexuality, bisexuality, and asexuality among others are universal and considered normal since its inception in 1966.
Man prides himself on being the only animal who can modify his nature, yet when he chooses to do so he is called a phony. — Aton LaVey, Diabolica
This policy goes deeper into the satanic sex chapter of The Satanic Bible by Anton. Z. Lavey. The church also fully supports the legalization of gay marriages, this particular part of satanic though was written by current high priest Peter H. Gilmore and is part of his his essay Founding Family.
Freedom for All
The church holds the secular ideals of the American founding fathers in very high regard and subsequently strive to uphold their ideals of freedom from oppression and the separation of church and state.
In the subject of transgender people; Anton LaVey wholeheartedly accepted people from the entire spectrum of the LGTBQ. This ethos continued with Peter H. Gilmore.
Sexual fetishes such as BDSM and S&M are also tolerated, like every other form of human expression as long all participants are willing and consenting adults.
Freedom of Expression
To conclude, The Church of Satan supports and accepts any forms of expression, sexuality, and modifications to the human form.
As long as all parties involved are consenting and no harm is indented or inflicted on anyone.
