A Power Greater Than Jesus: the Adolescent Sex Drive

17 September, 2009

It surprises me (why, I don’t know, since it has happened often enough) when an anecdotal experience from my (rather boring) youth serves to perfectly illustrate something happening in the world today.  For instance, take this story of  narrow-minded authoritarian zealotry: Read the rest of this entry ?

If You’re Not 100% With Us, You Are Against Us.

23 July, 2009

The aptly nicknamed Foes of Fucking (FoF) (I though that PhillyChief coined that, but it may have been the Grumpy Lion) claim that their goal is to eliminate abortions.  The radical Christian and political right, of course, couch it in family terms:  what about the children?  We have to protect the children!

Republican Family Values: Bullshit!

5 July, 2009

Is Federal Funding for Abstinence-Only-Sex-Education Done For?

11 May, 2009

Over the past year, I have been a frequent critic of Abstinence-Only-Sex Education.  The main reason?  it does not work.

Don’t get me wrong.  Abstinence does prevent pregnancy and can limit the spread of sexually-transmitted-diseases Read the rest of this entry ?
