Here is something interesting that I found.
These are the top 15 words looked up on reference.com. I believe these words give us a little insight into our culture.
One of the most interesting things that I noticed, in relation to the current topic of same-sex 'Marriage', is the etymology of the word sex (#1 search for word).
Sex, of course, can mean many things, but the etymology of this top search term is elusive. The word sex first appeared in English in the 14th century, adopted from Old French sexe, in turn from Latin sexus, a derivative of the verb secare 'to cut'. The relation of sex to cut is that the human race is "cut" or separated into two genders.
Two separate genders... That is a counter cultural topic nowadays.
Wherever you look (nature, history, bible) same-sex 'marriage' is a ironic (#8 most looked up word) oxymoron (#12).
