I will never be able to

I will never be able to understand those people. Their circular non-logic is filled with hypocracy and gullibility yet they still form a strong political voice. The world is a starnge place and the Fundies prove it.

You are inconsiderate

Media Girl:

I can't believe you are so harshly against the effort to promote abstinence among people in their 20s. Don't you realize that allowing sex among these unmarried people is just going to devalue the brides come wedding night? Don't you have any consideration for your fellow women? But then again, you "feminists" never care about anything but yourselves and your precious "rights" anyway.

Oh, and by the way, women shouldn't wear pants. Only MEN are permitted that. Full-length dresses, no more than an inch above the ankles, for you!!

At least some of us are concerned with preserving this country's moral fiber.

In a more serious vein ...

Seeing programs encouraging abstinence among consenting adults is one of those things that seems incredibly silly -- though the family-planning appointment is more pernicious.

If there were a way to stop his appointment, I would likely support that mechanism; at the very least, perhaps Congress could eliminate the position through a rider to one bill or another.

The abstinence program, to be quite frank, is something I would advocate tolerating in any other administration as a relatively low-cost, mostly meaningless sop to the far right. However, with this administration's actions in other areas (*cough* Iraq *cough* surveillance *cough*), it's burned most of the leeway it would ordinarily be entitled to here.

This position does not require Congressional confirmation. Just another boob with carte blanche.
