With all due respect for a sister female, I am a bit lost in a quandry. Why is Meghan McCain featured in an upcoming edition of Playboy and quoted to say she likes sex?

Of course she is entitled to express her freedom and her sexual self. She even went so far to say, giving herself heterosexual street cred, that she "likes "d**kly", otherwise known as men.

But wait a minute. She isn't married. She is publicly proclaiming she likes non-procreative sex. Why aren't the goose-stepping choruses of state legislators in Colorado, Virginia, and even Arizona publicly denouncing her as a slut? Isn't that what all this fracas about female reproductive freedom all about?

I would love to be a fly on the wall of the Focus on the Family policy subcommittees when they argue the merits of Meghan's openness about her sexuality on the head of a pin. I can only imagine a face-palming, forehead-rubbing, sweat-inducing group migraine permeating these board rooms of mostly men and a few token women parsing how a Republican woman--a woman of some notoriety and public standing--could SAY such a thing, openly, and in PLAYBOY!!!????

Even MY head hurts.

Should we sluts try to co-opt Meghan in our plot to demoralize Christian values and break the virgin compacts so promoted by the Christian Right? After all, if she is engaging in non-procreative sex, she must be on some type of birth control. Will her employer ask her to leave her job? Will she be forced to enter into some kind of sham engagement like Bristol Palin, thus losing her autonomy, free will, and personhood? Should we offer her our support as they publicly denounce her as a slut, a prostitute, a wanton woman out on the public dole to continue her promiscuous ways?

And what about all the pre-born Republicans she has killed while using birth control? Who will call Meghan to accountability, forcing her to go to trial for manslaughter or worse, for the deaths of all her unborn fetus-Americans?

My head still hurts. I guess its OK to publicly proclaim you're a slut if you're a Republican slut. Should we support her or should we stone her?



Should we stone Meghan McCain?

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.
