Post-Modern Morals

Can you believe the screwy world we live in, where it’s considered totally ok to show scenes of a sexual nature on TV, but it’s not ok to sexually harass a co-worker even if you were just kidding, gosh, have a sense of humor? And back when we were a more traditional society, military men had all sorts of liaisons and no one cared, but now David Petraeus cheats on his wife with his biographer and commits a series of ethical breachers and we all care? And bitches today wear the sluttiest clothes, but it’s somehow considered more rude to walk up to a big ol’ whore and say, “Hey, you’re a big ol’ whore!” than it is for that whore to wear a v-neck t-shirt. Unfair. Unbelievable.

Should birth control pills be available without a prescription?

The New York Times wonders. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists thinks they should be over the counter. The Catholic Medical Association and the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists disagree, of course, because their religious beliefs should obviously dictate the kind of health care that the rest of us are able to access.
