The Anti-Sex Revolution Continueth

I'm on my way out the door, but what the fuck? Is there no end to the backward slide? The Republican-controlled Missouri House has decided to bar condom distribution at county clinics...again. Since 2003, county clinics in the MO have been unable to provide contraceptives and infertility treatments.

A quote: "If you hand out contraception to single women, we're saying promiscuity is OK as a state, and I am not in support of that," [Susan] Phillips, R-Kansas City, said in an interview.

I guess the short of it, in my humble, alarmed opinion, is that anti-sex conservatives are on the march in South Dakota, Missouri, (fill in the next one). With stories like this, stories about pharmacist "conscience" bills, anti-gay legislation here and there, and even in the details of anti-choice legislation, the narrative should be screamingly clear. There is a serious movement afoot not to save the fetus, not to prevent unintended pregnancy, but to (bit-by-bit, bedroom-by-bedroom) end recreational sex as we know it, straight or gay, married or not.

Troubling if you like sex. Do we have any sex-likers among our readership?

    I'm with you, 100%.

    And in honor of March Madness, I'll quote legendary Georgetown Center (and humanitarian) Dikembe Mutombo upon walking into a campus party at the world-renowned Jesuit institution:

    Would you like to sex Mutombo?
