Alfred Kinsey: “The Living World Is a Continuum in Each and Every One of Its Aspects”

Photographer Unknown, (The Living World)

“The world is not divided into sheeps and goats.  Not all things are black nor all things white.  It is a fundamental of taxonomy that nature rarely deals with discrete categories.  Only the human mind invents categories and tries to force facts into separated pigeon-holes.  The living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects.  The sooner we learn this concerning sexual behavior the sooner we shall reach a sound understanding of the realities of sex.”

-Alfred Kinsey, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, 1948
