Every Vow You Break

Thanks to the good people at the White House Office of Sexual Purity teenage girls can now take a new chastity vow, the Iron Hymen Pledge. And boys can affirm their commitment to abstinence by loudly and proudly proclaiming that "Sex Is For Fags."

The sad thing is that these joke sites (courtesy of the good at people at whitehouse.org) aren't really all that much more ridiculous than some of the things that the abstinence-only crowd is attempting, with the help of the federal government, to foist on our nation's schools.

A number of those curricula not only made controversial assertions about abortion and contraception, as one would expect, but also got generally acknowledged biological facts - such as how HIV is transmitted and even something as basic as the number of chromosomes in cells - but my personal favorite passage from the above report:
An exercise from the curriculum Choosing the Best, for example, describes a knight who saves a princess from a dragon. The princess advises the knight on how to kill the dragon using a noose and poison, the knight follows her advice, and is successful. However, he feels "ashamed" and decides to marry a village girl instead of the princess, but only after making sure, "she knew nothing about nooses or poisons."

It's not more than a hop, skip, and a jump from there to "Sex is for fags."

Increasing no-questions-asked subsidies to miscellaneous fundamentalist front groups been a part of the conservative program for some time now. One of the biggest beneficiaries of such largesse (in addition to Bush's efforts to use the federal government to "promote marriage") is everyone's convicted felon, self-proclaimed Messiah Rev. Moon.

Iron Hymen even sounds like something he'd come up with. Either that, or one of those disturbing X-rated anime videos with the demon tentacle rape scenes.
