Got to love the audacity of the beautiful people running to Whole Foods to avoid estrogen and progesterone in their meat and dairy products while brainwashing women to be promiscuous and take pills loaded up with carcinogens for sex.
These folks are worried about Mountain Dew?
This is captivating!
Salon has issued a call for the sex therapists to examine the strange phenomenon of the people who refuse to lower cultural standards on morality and virtue to theirs.
We ask political historians and sex therapists alike to explain ramping-up GOP anti-sex rhetoric...
Anti-sex rhetoric is hardly new to the Republican Party, of course, which has routinely campaigned to increase the dangers and consequences of sex by restricting access to contraceptives and abortion. But the GOP war on sex also comes at a time when the party’s presidential candidates have perhaps never been more out of step with the sexual beliefs and practices of most Americans.
“The private sexual behavior of all ages, of all political persuasions is getting more liberal,” says Marty Klein, a sex therapist and author of “America’s War on Sex.” “It’s going toward more variety, more partners, more kinky sex, more experimentation and, as the age of first marriage goes up, by definition the amount of premarital sex is going up.” Indeed, “the vast majority of Americans have sex before marriage,” according to a Guttmacher study, and most believe that out-of-wedlock nookie is morally a-OK.
Even as we increasingly disown notions of procreative marital sex as the only legitimate form of sexual experience, “the public policy around sexuality is getting more conservative, more draconian,” aside from tremendous progress within the gay rights movement, says Klein. “That schizophrenia has been in evidence since the day that George Bush took office — you could even say since the day that Bill Clinton was impeached.”
Wait. I don't get it...Was the revelry for the sexual freedom of women the day Bill Clinton put cigars where the sun doesn't shine?
There's a sucker born every minute. I have always had the morbid curiousity to know whether it was lit. I cannot imagine how low a woman's self-esteem has to be to turn the powerful gift of her sexuality into a receptacle for semen, much less for cigars, cigarettes, bondage and 'kinky sex'.
Knock yourselves out.
But there are and always will be men and women who accept the standards of the Divine gift of sexuality and will use it within the limitations of that gift. Most of us go through the some gauntlet of misuse of that gift before the witness of men and women reserving and preserving the sanctity of human sexuality teaches us its beauty and power. If a George Stephanoplis or Diane Sawyer asks questions, they're going to get the answers. You don't want to hear it, don't ask and we won't tell.
But let us have the decency and the courage to call them out on their anti-Catholic bigotry, as Newt did last night. I would love to see a Gingrich/Santorum ticket.
If George and Diane are willing to go along with the charade of calling a woman growing a beard and having a penis sewn onto herself a 'man', refer to her as 'he' and 'him', we can insist on having boundaries set on respecting people who reserve their sexuality in virtues and gratitude and respect for the Giver of that precious and powerful gift.
We don't have to put up with religious bigotry and really, we shouldn't. It's unconstitutional. This is our country. We live here. Our children and grandchildren live here. We owe it to them and to God to speak up, whether convenient or inconvenient. Whether its liked or its lumped.
Blessed Feast of the Epiphany.
