More Tagging tips:
A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?
Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.
If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office.
CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.
Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.
Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary:
Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House.
If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state
Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries
that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

This whole thing begins with the orgasm, symbolically as well as literally. Once you understand, the entire post-New Deal Republican Party makes sense.
The male orgasm is to be de-regulated. The female orgasm is to be re-regulated.
Sustainable resources are like sustainable which is to say female orgasms. Bad. Rein in.
Drilling is a male act leading to a non-sustainable which is to say male orgasm. Congress shall make no law . . .
Shooting guns is male. congress shall make no law.
Repititoius appeals of false convictions are female. One appeal is enough, then . . .
Execution by injection which is to say insertion is male. end of story. Literally.
When a woman says no she means yes. It is male to keep asking the question, knowing that one needs only one yes after 29 nos. Thus, ultrasounds and shits until she either says, "All right. I'll have the baby" or a constitutionally mandated Biological Clock says, "Your 26 weeks are up and Dialtion and Extraction are female and therefore not an option."
Killing Bin Laden was in his home which is to say in his womb which is to say female and therefore doesn't count.
Advocatingdropping bombs into a nuclear power plant is covered under the one yes after 29 nos doctrine.
A spider hole is like an IUD. Saddam deserved to die.

because by itself, O looks like an egg. I suppose some might interpret Y as suggesting a vagina, but it still isn't as powerful as an I which not only suggests egocentrism which is to say maleness, but is erect in its upper case and sated but dripping in its lower case.

an actual controversy? I no longer have cable TV, and I am not inclined to doubt the depths of craziness to which conservatives can sink.... So.... is this real? Are there actually pundits on TV debating whether women should be allowed to have orgasims??? Reality has gotten so bizarre that I can't even be sure if this is just pure satire. Someone help me out on this.

Not sure if its being debated on TV now... but the question of female orgasm has been a topic of public debate in the not so distant past.
The vibrator? Invented by doctors in the mid 1700's to make it easier for them to treat what medical science called "female hysteria", ie, the physical and emotional symptoms of a woman wanting to have sex. Before the vibrator, doctors would "manually stimulate" the woman until her hysteria passed. Manipulating that particular part of the female anatomy was not considered sexual in nature.
Seriously... I am NOT making this up! Look up "vibrator" on wikipedia.com
Medical science debated whether the female orgasm actually existed well into the 1960s. Now the debate is whether it serves any medical or scientific purpose beyond pleasure.
I think what the comic author was trying to illustrate is the absurdity of the extreme measures anti-abortion supporters are taking to prevent women from exercising their legal right to an abortion.

Spend a few minutes on Catholic websites that discuss sex and you will lose your mind. For instance, sex must immediately stop after ejaculation or a sin will be committed by continuing to stimulate the receptacle of the sacred sperm (otherwise known as "the woman") because the procreation is done.

After all, the reason that Nice Guys Finish Last is because they made damn sure that she came first. ;)
On a serious note, I have to wonder if they are unaware that the female orgasm has the effect of drawing in semen up towards the fallopian tubes as the cervix "dips" if the male partner has already ejaculated. Oh wait, that would be considered medical science, and Baby Jebus doesn't like that.

It's the ONE rule of Catholic sex which, even though to a very small degree, helps to INHIBIT conception! Science has shown that post-ejaculation orgasmic contractions HELP to get the sperm to the egg. Unfortunately for the planet, there's still plenty of chance for fertilization even without the woman's muscles helping out.
by Thinking Dem on Sat Mar 07, 2015 at 11:55:09 AM PST
Apparently the Catholic Church is unaware that a woman's vaginal spasms during orgasm help propel the sperm towards the egg... and that procreation isn't "done" until those sperm reach that egg and penetrate it.
by Michelle L on Sun Mar 15, 2015 at 10:13:18 AM PDT
I suspect it's nonsense unless the sites were "traditional" Catholic, and they are the fundies of said church and therefore nut jobs. The real Catholic church these days isn't anti sex so much as it is anti sex outside of marriage. I think one of the Popes even said "there is no such thing as immodesty in the marriage bed" or something like that.
I'm not Catholic, and think they have a long way to go to right their wrongs, but I don't think this is anything they'd say.

Onan was the second of Judah's three sons by his first wife. Onan's older brother Er was matched with Tamar, but he dropped dead on the wedding night (the ONLY information about "why" was that he "sinned before the Lord" and the Lord slew him; what kind of sin, when it was committed, years ago or around the time of the wedding, not mentioned). Custom required that the next brother take his place in the marriage in order to beget a son in his BROTHER'S name. He could have politely refused, but he accepted, with mental reservations; apparently he liked the idea of going through the motions, and wanted the family to admire him, but (for an unknown reason; perhaps Er's sin was molesting Onan when they were children?) didn't REALLY want her to get pregnant with a baby who would legally belong to his brother. And it was for THIS sin, committed by withdrawal ("spilled his seed on the ground"), namely the sin of FRAUD, that the Lord also slew Onan. But the entire Judeo-Christian anti-contraception and anti-self-pleasuring and anti-alternative-sex rules came from the mistaken belief that "spilling one's seed" IN GENERAL was a deadly sin.
By the way, Tamar came out OK in the end, even though Judah thought she was a "jinx bride" and refused to let his third and only remaining son marry her. She went out and impersonated a harlot and tricked Judah into getting her pregnant, proved to the family that he was the father, and gave birth to twin sons, without which there would have been no TRIBE of Judah. Leave it to a woman to fix what a bunch of men messed up!

So-called pornography that shows women enjoying sex! As everyone knows, women were created to give MEN pleasure, not to experience it themselves!
Perhaps some new films that depict the proper balance of power. Instead of the women in films portraying fake orgasms as a sign of male dominance, they should instead immediately hop out of bed, clean the house, and cook the man a five course meal.

If an employer "indirectly subsidizes" birth control by obtaining a group insurance policy, even if the insurer pays for the birth control and the employee askes for it, then the employer "indirectly subsizes" birth control by paying wages, too. You can take all the arguments about "insurance" and insert "wages" and the arguments about "indirect subsidy" are equally true, and equally relevant to morals.
So the slippery slope is that the employer will have to make sure that wages aren't used for sin, just like the insurance policy. And that means that laws against employment discrimination among others are out the window.

50M women voted for McCain and Palin and the early 20th century anti-female polices of the GOP in the 21st century.
Virginia leads the nation in pushing policies that discriminate against women, require them to submit to physically intrusive government mandated procedures yet women vote the legislators in. Few people are one issue voters but you would think this kind of over the top crazy behavior would be politically impossible if women voted. But GOP right wing has solid backing of women voters.

Clearly a large proportion of eligible women voters support the GOP's chastity belt women's health policies.

Either women are indifferent to the GOP policies or actively support them or they could not exist. That fact is key to getting progressive policies on women's health.

reaction to perceived anti-Catholic bias.
That made me laugh real hard. Reminded me of a true story.
I had a partner once who was called upon to resolve a freedom of expression issue in a women's prison art class. It seems the pottery class was making lot of dildos.
My partner solved this dilemma by only giving them glaze that contained sand. Ouch.

them (as artistic expression) but not use them (as contraband) as dildos.
by SpamNunn on Mon Feb 27, 2012 at 08:39:48 AM PST
I don't quite see what the rationale is for dildos being contraband, but I have a feeling that even if it were explained to me I'd still be puzzled.

but I believe that at one time the Catholic Church believed that conception was more likely if the woman attained orgasm while procreating. Obviously, a more enlightened time hundreds of years ago.

me a while to figure out where I had read it. It's from a book by, Shahar, Shulamith, The Fourth Estate: A History of Women in the Middle Ages, trans. Chaya Galai (Cambridge 1983). It was believed in that time that in order to conceive a woman had to experience an orgasm to release what they believed to be female sperm to procreate. This also came into play if a woman accused a man of rape. If she became pregnant because of rape, she could not declare it because she had to be a willing participant. Since this came out of Rome in the Middle Ages I can only believe that it was sanctioned by the Church.

Men like sex (understatement).
The more likely women are to acheive orgasm the more likely they are to have sex.
The transitive here being the more women are likely to acheive orgasm the more often men are likely to have sex.
So the operative ponderance for me is...
WTF?!? ARE THEY STUPID?!?
by meatballs on Mon Feb 27, 2012 at 01:06:18 PM PST
handicap. If there is no humor, no humanity, no consideration, no charm--how likely is orgasm? Not likely.
So the alternative is, turn to "duty" and coercion.

There doesn't seem to be a scientific reason for a female orgasm, and is probably vestige from development.

Well! Weird! But True! There are at this very moment
Republicon Teabuggers in Congress, on the floor of the
Senate and the House making crazier comments and
proposing even weirder legislation aimed directly at
women, even Republicon women... like 'sister Palin,
too! All kinds of pervert notions from "candidates" who
disguised themselves and deceived the Voters in get
"elected" from the 'so-called grass roots! Must have
been all that "POT" they've have been howling against
for years, even after watching fraud documentary on
marijuana, known as Refer Madness! Phew! Day
after day, even women like the 'teabugger' mama,
Virginnie Foxx, talk about ..... Well! Women and
Orgasms! Apparently, many of these same 'clowns' always appearing as Evangelical 'christians' have a lot of trouble performing, even with heavy doses of Viagra! Wait! Wait! One of them, Republicon Women will be proposing a new female castration law on
FAUX NUZZ! and state the found the passage in
the Bible, one of the revisions! Have heard some
pretty weird notions and myths from Republicons
to date making one wonder, where did these dodo
dweebs, Aliens, come from? Hey! Many professing
to be 'christian' and hate women so! Something
funny with 'ding dongs always braying they are
"Pro-life!" But limit (abort) themselves to 1.4
children, offspring and bellyache about other
women having too many "welfare babies,"
though the 'Pro-lifers' take the biggest cuts in
taxes and credits like for "supposedly giving to
charities other then CPAC groups!

He had two abilities that seemed incompatible, so he asked them to choose which they wanted. He said, "One is the ability to pee standing up . . ."
Adam said to stop right there, that he was out working in the garden all day and absolutely had to have the ability to pee standing up.
God asked Eve what she thought, and she responded, "Whatever, there's no arguing with him."
So God said, "Ok then, men shall have the ability to pee standing up, and women shall have the ability to have multiple orgasms."
