“These things are all related, and I don’t believe it is an accident that instances of structural oppression often occur along the same fault lines as concealed discourses regarding sex, sexuality, and gender. The more comfortable we are talking about ourselves, the more readily we can begin to engage in the hard conversations that continue to elude us as a society. This is all to say that conversation is important, and while words can be incredibly destructive, they also carry with them the possible function of liberating us. The conversation Sex Week has the potential to spark on campus is incredibly significant; we must all take it upon ourselves to really consider what is being said, rather than ignoring it while we pick up our free condoms.”

“Utah Governor Gary Herbert has vetoed House Bill 363, Health Education Amendments. The bill would have imposed an abstinence-only curriculum for Utah high schools that provide sex education. It would have also allowed them to choose not to provide sex education at all.”
KUER: Governor Herbert Vetoes Sex Education Bill (2012-03-16)
On the other hand, Herbert currently still has ON HIS DESK RIGHT NOW the legislation that will change Utah’s 24 hour mandatory waiting period between appointment and abortion to 72 hours.

“It’s great to be a man in our society, the perks seem to be endless. Everything is built with the intention of accommodating our needs. It’s fantastic, really. We men are constantly validated. /And the bedroom is one place where we receive consistent validation. I’m talking about women faking orgasms and giving us the sense that we’re the greatest lovers that have ever lived. /What a terrific arrangement for men. We get all the sexual pleasure and the feeling that we have satisfied the woman we’re sleeping with, without actually having done so.”
Yashar Ali, “He Doesn’t Deserve Your Validation: Putting The Fake Orgasm Out of Business”
Does it make a difference that it’s a man writing this piece, as opposed to someone female?
