Dry Dreams

So, I’ve been thinking about this whole attack on abortion & the companion attack on birth control. I have to agree with others that this is really an attack on sex, on recreational sex, on sex as pleasure. These creatures of the creepy, peepy night are restricting contraception in Missouri & are taking us a step closer to a sexless society, the, if you will allow me, wet dream of the American religious right.

“The Missouri House voted Wednesday to ban state funding of contraceptives for low-income women and to prohibit state-funded programs from referring those women to other programs.”

The only way to stop abortion for these people is to stop sex. After all, if you have sex without contraception, & you get pregnant, your punishment is to give forced birth to a child no one may want.

& remember, if a woman is using birth control, she’s a whore.

"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," Phillips, R-Kansas City, said in an interview.”

How fucking sick is this woman? & a large majority of Missouri’s House members agreed with this loon. Just so you know that this anti-sex mania crosses gender line, here we have a male loon named Senator Mike Foley. Here’s a portion of a column about this mental midget, no offense to midgets:

“That is laughable. It is insulting to any intelligence exceeding that of primordial goop.

“The move represents an effort – and a hope – aimed at reducing the number of women who receive contraceptives, and might eventually receive advice on abortion rights.

“The Foley amendment is a version of the anti-government “starve the beast” strategy. Financially strangle the things you don’t like, reducing their effectiveness as much as possible."
The smugness of a guy like Foley requires that the next time you see him, you need to smack that smirk into the next state.

The whole point of all of this has nothing to do with saving money, or frankly, preventing abortions. It has everything to do with stopping people from getting all naked & sweaty. From getting all lovey & spent. From getting all human & happy. If there was a hell, I’d hope the people in charge of this anti-sex crusade will be put in a room & be made to watch really, really bad porn for eternity.

Makes me wonder. Did they also stop the funding for Viagra?
