More proof that they hate women and they hate sex

From feministing:
Looks like South Dakota is the new black. A Louisiana bill that would ban almost all abortions passed a Senate committee and is on its way to the Senate floor.
Senate Bill 33 by Sen. Ben Nevers, D-Bogalusa, cleared the Senate Committee on Health and Welfare after the provision was added. The bill would allow abortions only to save the life of the mother. But Sen. Diana Bajoie, D-New Orleans, said she wanted to "make it more pro-life" by not allowing any exceptions.
So banning abortions for rape and incest victims isn’t quite enough. She also wants to do away with the exception that would save a woman’s life. Yeah, that’s sounds really “pro-life” to me. Lovely.
From feministing:
Also, [Christina] Page suggests we ask ourselves why one of the biggest supposedly pro-family groups in the country, Concerned Women for America, doesn't offer maternity leave to its employees. If having and cherishing babies is its foremost agenda, why wouldn't that group?
From DARE Generation Diary via Boing Boing:
Lucy’s Love Shop employee Wanda Gillespie said she was flabbergasted that South Carolina’s Legislature is considering outlawing sex toys. But banning the sale of sex toys is actually quite common in some Southern states.

The South Carolina bill, proposed by Republican Rep. Ralph Davenport, would make it a felony to sell devices used primarily for sexual stimulation and allow law enforcement to seize sex toys from raided businesses.
"Officer Smith, does this Pez dispenser look like a sex toy to you?"

"Hmm... check to see what the manual from the Office of National Dildo Control Policy has to say."

"It's rather ambiguous. It is pink and plastic and about the size of *ahem* well, you know. But it also dispenses small tart candies."

"Hrm. Better bring it into the lab for testing."
From Digby:
"Purity Balls"

...this is what that little girl is reading to her father from that card:
I pledge to remain sexually pure...until the day I give myself as a wedding gift to my husband. ... I know that God requires this of me.. that he loves me. and that he will reward me for my faithfulness.
And this is what Daddy says in turn:

I, (daughter’s name)’s father, choose before God to cover my daughter as her authority and protection in the area of purity. I will be pure in my own life as a man, husband and father. I will be a man of integrity and accountability as I lead, guide and pray over my daughter and as the high priest in my home. This covering will be used by God to influence generations to come.
He's the "high priest" in his home. Are we getting the picture?

yes, i see a christian taliban, i see the 1950's, i see hatred and i see that some people are so afraid of others here and abroad that they will give up freedom and sell out their daughter's and granddaughter's equality if it means that their version of a male patriarchial god will come and "smite" our enemies if only we return to some televangelistic christianity. next up, separate water fountains and restrooms for non whites , the end to affirmative action and on and on...
THAT'S what they really want.

I'm not sure why they'd want to ban beds. There are some things I guess I just don't get!

What a dirty mind you have if you see beds as being "devices used primarily for sexual stimulation."

My grandmother sleeps in one of those things!

Now zucchinis and cucumbers on the other hand...

That Purity Ball business gave me the creeps. What kind of father takes vows with his daughter(s)?

Do they have Purity Balls for mothers & sons? Of course not because they're really only concerned with keeping their daughters "pure". Dontcha know that sex is evil for women unless it is done as a duty to procreate?

I'm afraid that they want to take us back even further in history than the 1950s.

BTW, the only way they're getting my vibrator is if they can tear it away from my cold dead hands!

These evil fake christians who would force their daughters to endure a pregnancy brought on by rape make me sick. Is this 2006? Don't we have modern medicine and emergency contraception? God help the asshole who hurts one of my girls, or the asshole who tries to take away their reproductive rights.

These 'pro-life' haters of all need to rapture soon. Can we hurry them along with purple jumpsuits and kool-aid? Don't know how much more we take.....

Hey Ted from sun louisiana here Ithink banning sex toys is absurd and I believe it stems from a need to control people Maybe if Never had a little control in his own life he would'nt feel the need to control our private life This is absoulutly rediculious!!!
