a stranger in a strange land
Headline seen on a women's magazine last week: "Why Sex Is Better After You're Engaged"

Headline seen on a men's website this afternoon: "Five Reasons Not To Sleep With A Virgin"

How far our culture has fallen ...

For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

[P.S.  Yes, I read both articles.  There's truth in both, to be sure, but the premises behind both articles are so messed up to begin with ...]

Current Mood: disappointeddisappointed

I agree with you. Today in one of my classes we had to watch a show where a midwest, conservative Christian (farming, Republican, gun-toting... you know the drill) lives 30 days in a gay community to see what he can learn from them. Of course, the gay people made all the hilarious jokes (because gay people are all naturally funny so we're supposed to laugh at all their jokes) and the Christian was a huge jerk for being uncomfortable around hundreds of gay men.

Being in such a horribly liberal school is annoying me a great deal today.

I have absolutely never understood casual hookups, which both those articles seem to assume is one of Those Things Everybody Does. Which is both insulting and sad.

I hope I can persuade my child(ren) that they're worth more than that.
