On cable news, the Democratic party’s cheaper mouthpieces would reference it over and over again.
On social media, snarky memes would be made and sent around, the better to influence the low-information voters who are crucial come presidential-election season.
Immediately, Planned Parenthood would start a fundraising drive. In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality. It's not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be. And when you destroy that you have a dramatic impact on the quality -- AP: I'm sorry, I didn't think I was going to talk about "man on dog" with a United States senator, it's sort of freaking me out.
Every society in the history of man has upheld the institution of marriage as a bond between a man and a woman. Because society is based on one thing: that society is based on the future of the society. The idea is that the state doesn't have rights to limit individuals' wants and passions. I think we absolutely have rights because there are consequences to letting people live out whatever wants or passions they desire. At age 34, two years before his first election and two decades before he would run for governor of Virginia, Robert F.Mc Donnell submitted a master's thesis to the evangelical school he was attending in Virginia Beach in which he described working women and feminists as "detrimental" to the family.He said government policy should favor married couples over "cohabitators, homosexuals or fornicators." He described as "illogical" a 1972 Supreme Court decision legalizing the use of contraception by unmarried couples.Right-wingers claim it's appalling that Bernie Sanders wrote an essay about male and female sex fantasies for an alternative paper in Vermont in 1972, and say it's hypocritical that he's not being raked over the coals in the press for it: In a 1972 essay, presidential candidate Sen.Bernie Sanders (D-VT) opined that men fantasized about women being abused.
He also claimed that women fantasized about being gang raped.
In an article entitled "Men-And-Women," published in an alternative newspaper called the "Vermont Freeman" Sanders shared his thoughts on male and female sexuality in ways that would cause a media firestorm if it had been penned by any current GOP candidate.
Even one with as little chance at grabbing his party's nomination as Sanders currently has.
The essay is cringe-inducing -- but in a very clumsy way, Sanders is stumbling toward a humane point: relations between the sexes should be steeped in less pain and cruelty.
I'm a generation younger than Sanders, but my adolescence was in the early 1970s, and being a straight male and struggling to reconcile the worldviews of Larry Flynt and Gloria Steinem was confusing. Yet if you had any human decency at all, it was obvious that the arguments of feminism were morally compelling.
Even cruel sexually explicit material seemed excitingly countercultural -- not just porn, but, for instance, (which was released in the U. I can't imagine Sanders's worldview as my own in adolescence, but I can imagine nodding thoughtfully if a high school friend described male-female interactions as a sad battle between male "pigness" and a female "slavishness" brought on by an internalization of a piggish male worldview. posts claiming stupidly that these attitudes were the product of free-market economics or a lack of gun control or of the pernicious influence that Protestantism has on the American mind; and we’d see dubious “studies” and ill-gotten “polls” commissioned to back up the message .
