Hi. There’s a sudden jump in my stats, and I see that it is all thanks to Mark Steyn. Love that guy.
He quoted my post on Foster Freiss’ aspirin comment. I know why it’s a big deal to our Liberators, but it still shouldn’t be. Reminding the country that ladies believed in abstinence threatens the Liberators’ hold on a generation that possesses the collective memory of a hamster and thinks Mad Men is an accurate portrayal of American cultural history.
Why else make a fuss about teaching abstinence in schools? Why throw a fit when Uganda added abstinence to its safe sex education programs and saw Aids infection rates take a dive? The Sexual Revolution was designed to destroy something beautiful and it has worked. Devoid of its inherent mystery and meaning, sex becomes empty and joyless, something done to secure a relationship or because it’s expected.
Being reminded of a more chaste era actually makes me kind of sad, because when I was younger, things had already been destroyed. Sex meant little then and today it means nothing.
Thanks for that.
