  • I’m nervous to say “this will never pass”, though, because so many backwards reproductive rights bills have passed over the last year or so. Sure, members of the Arizona legislature might have marital sex, but this tends to be an us/them kind of discussion where people don’t think about how THEIR lives will be affects [...]

  • What’s most disappointing and shallow about this apology is that he didn’t even apologize for, what was for me, the worst and most disgusting part of his rant: demanding that women who want their birth control paid for by their insurance should pay back the rest of society by posting videos of themselves having sex [...]

  • Can I ask what his reasons are for making such drastic cuts in a very basic service? I know that every governor is cutting back, and citing a lack of funds, and that some cuts need to be made (or, you know, taxes raised, but apparently I’m the only person who sees this as a [...]

    I’m really going to have to disagree. Most college students do have sex at college, but BYU students are required to read and sign the honor code before entering the school, agreeing to live by it. Presumably, students go to BYU because they are interested in living according to these kinds of religious rules. The [...]
