Another view considers that perversion is a degradation of an objectively true morality.

Non-sexual usages[ edit ] The verb pervert is less narrow in reference than the related nouns, and can be used without any sexual connotations. All are often, but not exclusively, used non-seriously.
Everywhere in this small town in northern California in which I was a young boy and to which I have returned as an old man, I often sense that boy and those long ago moments.
This morning the fog was thick here on the ridge as I returned from an errand down on Lucky John Road; a road I had not been on for over 60 years.
Even before I came over the crest of the hill and started down the far side my back brain told me there was a brook at the bottom. And sure enough, in a moment, my car passed over the brook as it flowed in a culvert from one side of the road to the other.
Today there were a number of tidy cookie-cutter contractor-built homes on either side complete with their gardens, garages, and water-features.
The once forest-thick pines were thinned out to garden specs. Still, as I pulled the car over in the fog and looked around, they appeared. The last time I had been to the brook I was 11 and I walked. I did it because my father told me to do it. One evening Essays about deviant behavior after my 11th December birthday he called me aside.
She needs help chopping wood for her heat and other chores. The sum to be paid was an expansion of my cash on hand to levels beyond the dreams of boyhood avarice.
The next afternoon my Keds crunched through the thin sheets of ice formed in the puddles next to the stream as I reported to Miss Helen driven more by greed than duty. It had a tin roof and was very small, consisting of a small sitting area just inside the door, a kitchen behind that, and a sleeping alcove behind that with a curtain that was always closed.
The hut sat on what were probably cinder blocks on a sort of islet around which branches of the brook actually made a babbling sound over the mossed rocks. Her water was drawn from the stream and stored in a large tank just on the other side of the kitchen wall with a pipe that came through the wall to a small metal tub she used as a sink.
One of my primary tasks was to carry buckets of water to the tank and fill it. This job began in the winter and the only source of heat Miss Helen had was a standard issue wood stove that she also used for cooking.
They were far too big to fit in the stove and my main job was to take a maul, then an axe, then a hatchet, and transform the each log into a pile of kindling that the old lady could use. I went to school. I took the bus home and at the bus stop instead of going down the dirt road to home I walked over the hill to chop wood and carry water.
When I was done I would walk home. Miss Helen was both little and very, very old. Or as old as a person in their late 60s appeared to a boy of 11 in She was small, stooped, with almost translucent hands, and as roly-poly as my paternal grandmother.
She wore thick stockings and heavy shoes. It seemed to me that she wore only hand-sewn dresses that could have been fashioned from large print tablecloths.
Over these she always had an apron on. Once I got home my father had me hand over two of the silver dollars so he could demonstrate the miracle of compound interest in a savings account he made me open. And so I went to the job with the little old lady who lived by the brook.
For months I chopped wood and carried water for Miss Helen, and saw how even the very old and the very poor still carried on their lives with dignity even when all they had was miserable, mean nothing. Then, one day, I came home on the school bus and found my father waiting for me at the stop.
But she left this for you. She wanted you to have it.
She just became a ghost; a ghost my father wanted to spare me. Hence, she just went away. Until this morning when, sitting in my car near the brook on Lucky John Road, she came back.
She came back out of the fog; small, translucent, in her hand-made dress with her apron and her worn change purse fat with its silver dollars.
Which is when, after 60 years, it hit me. Miss Helen was a very, very poor woman. In four silver dollars a week would have been a serious sum of money to her.
Unless she had some sort of secret stash of silver dollars. Which I was pretty sure she did not.Overview: Very little is known about Alexylva University or its motives.
