Bringing Abortion Out of the Closet

It looks like the Catholic League is slithering out of the closet again.

The Catholic League is the worst of the worst who represent the Catholic Church.  Ideologically, they hail from the bad old days, when everyone named Goldberg or Lieberman had hands that were literally, personally considered to be soaked in the blood of Christ.  The League has been an active force in trying to suppress art and expression that they considered to be "anti-Catholic," which is defined extremely broadly.  The sheer slavering paranoia of the Catholic League on virtually all fronts of the "culture wars" can be summed up by a single, infamous quote by League President William Donohue from an appearance on Scarborough Country in 2004:

237 Reasons to "Do It"

The New York Times is just full of S-E-X these days. 

John Tierney reports on the new study from The Archives of Sexual Behavior "The Whys of Mating: 237 Reasons and Counting":

Scholars in antiquity began counting the ways that humans have sex, but they weren’t so diligent in cataloging the reasons humans wanted to get into all those positions. Darwin and his successors offered a few explanations of mating strategies — to find better genes, to gain status and resources — but they neglected to produce a Kama Sutra of sexual motivations.

Contraceptive Comic Books

If Ethan Persoff did not exist, it would be necessary for the Internet to invent him. Perhaps it did. In Joan Harper declares her angst to Ken.any case, Ethan Persoff's website is one of the stranger corners of cyberspace. Persoff is a cartoonist and comics artist, and in addition to showing off his own work, he's archived some really fascinating flotsam and jetsam from the pop-cultural subconcious. Especially interesting is his section of "educational" comics called Comics With Problems. The comics here are the free comics that get passed out to schoolkids or distributed at community centers to addressi social issues like sexual abuse, marijuana, and the medical value of wearing an eye patch. The most recent addition to the archive is a real classic: a comic distributed by Planned Parenthood first in 1956 and then in a revised edition in 1962 titled Escape From FEAR.

No Freakin' Amazon!

This afternoon, I was chatting online with Elizabeth, and somewhere between making lewd, ungentlemanly suggestions and parsing CSS code, I made a policy suggestion about the site. Put succinctly, it was this:

NO Freakin' Amazon links!

Perverted News Roundup #3

This edition of the news roundup is devoted to Verizon, who managed to help delay it by dropping my internet connection for about three hours yesterday, and then kept me on the phone for about an hour doing all sorts of useless shit to the computer before realizing that there was an outage in my area. Thanks, guys.

Perverted News Roundup

Review of Shortbus DVD (Clean Sheets): Clean Sheets reviews John Cameron Mitchell's followup to Hedwig and the Angry Inch, a sex-positive and sex-realistic drama about relationships in NYC.

Revenge of the World Bank Secretaries (Alternet): Susie Bright takes a look at the latest sexual pecadillo within the Neocons; Paul Wolfowitz, the married, hawkish Zionist who heads the World Bank, is facing calls for his resignation because of his affair with an employee, a Saudi woman named Shaha Riza whose salary got a big boost from $132,660 to $193,590 per year thanks to her relationship with the boss.  Shit. For that kind of money, I'd do Wolfowitz.

How the Web Became a Sexist's Paradise (Alternet): Jessica Valenti gives a good summation of how blithely misogyny is accepted in Internet culture these days, using the recent issue of Kathy Sierra's intimidation via internet death threats as an example.
