Leftist Progessives are simultaneously the biggest libertines and the most obnoxious prudes in the world.
On the one hand, the left stands for unlimited promiscuous sex without consequences: Abortion on demand, government-mandated free contraceptives, slut walks, access to Pron in public libraries, and… of course… facilitating the ability of minors to have as much sex as they want without parental knowledge.
On the other hand, left-wing Political Correctness demands that the Captain of the Navy’s Blue Angels have his career destroyed because some of the men under his command made some lewd comments about women and some Family-Guy caliber Ghey Jokes. A reprimand, I can understand, if the remarks were directed at a fellow serviceman while on-duty, but… Seriously?
So, basically, on the left, one is encouraged to pursue sexual gratification without any responsibility or consequences. But on the other hand, joking about sex, or acknowledging… in the immortal words of Bernie Mac … that “man is a sexual being’… that can destroy your career.
Honestly, those people are nuts.
Or maybe I’m the one who’s nuts for thinking that standards of discretion and privacy should be consistent with one’s sexual mores.
