violence is definitely more simple than sex
this is a good line of thinking. it's easier to sell toy guns that toy dildos.
but you also have to remember that we're not the only fucked up country, so maybe my points that i made in my first response here, specific to america, arent really to be taken seriously. look at the countries in africa which rigorously practice female genital mutilation.
consider islamic nations, which encorporate violence into their religion more literally (at least in modern translations) than any other religion, while simultaneously encorporating suppression of sex.
violence has achieved specific goals throughout history. so it's glorified. sex is pleasureful and is directly connected with human desires, which most if not all religions preach to avoid. gluttony, greed, envy, lust, etc. war isnt directly connected with human desires but moreso with preservation of religion (or self).
