"We've done our darndest to show that we really, really don't like women having sex. We've gotten rid of contraceptive coverage, teen sex ed and made getting an abortion a scary humiliating process.  But we're worried. Those darn women might still go out and have sex.  And, god forbid, enjoy it. that's not good.  In the spirit of turning the clock back we're going back to the 13th century. Or some darn century. Who knows. Not us, can't stand reading about history. Whenever they had chastity belts. What a great idea. time to bring it back."

Here's how it'll work. On her 13th birthday, after the cake and presents, we'll lock her in a chastity belt. She can use the color. What about when she wants to have sex.  We have that covered. She will have to be over 25.  Then she can apply for a permit. In order to get

this permit, she will  have to take a series of tests over the course of a year. These tests include competing and winning a tiathlon, getting a PhD in Persian studies and discovering the cure for cancer.  Once she has completed these tests to our satisfaction, she will be granted a permit for one night of sex."

"What about marriage.  Again, assuming she has completed the aforementioned tests she will be allowed one night on her honeymoon. Since the belt is electronically monitored, there will be no lapses. Once a year, on her anniversary, the belt will be removed."

"Some people might say that we have no authority to do this, but our religious beliefs demand that we do."

(With apologies to Margaret Atwood.  However, the Wisconsin Assembly seems to be veering to close to a Handmaid's Tale.)

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 (California, Texas, etc). 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.
