“Access to Safe Contraceptives is One Way to Curb Abortion”
That’s the title of this article by Cynthia Tucker.
“Access to Safe Contraceptives is One Way to Curb Abortion.” This is the kind of sentence that would have most people going “Gee, ya think?” “No shit Sherlock.”
But there’s a certain other type, a certain subculture, for whom that sentence is either blasphemy, or too difficult to comprehend, or something.
Could the economy — “It’s the Economy, Stupid!” — actually be pushed aside in this election, and replaced by the Culture Wars?
The Culture Wars — the war between Americans who would react to the above sentence with “of course, what’d you think?” and the Other Americans who would react with incomprehension and/or fire and brimstone.
Wars are supposed to be lost by the side that’s dumber; more primitive. And yet these sperm-cell-worshiping imbeciles keep coming back and back and back. Reminds me of a bumpersticker I once saw: “You! Out of the Gene Pool!”
