aside from the scientific inaccuracies, can we focus for a moment on this paragraph from the article:

"Some course materials cited in Waxman's report present as scientific fact notions about a man's need for "admiration" and "sexual fulfillment" compared with a woman's need for "financial support." One book in the "Choosing Best" series tells the story of a knight who married a village maiden instead of the princess because the princess offered so many tips on slaying the local dragon. "Moral of the story," notes the popular text: "Occasional suggestions and assistance may be alright, but too much of it will lessen a man's confidence or even turn him away from his princess."


chauvinism, too. note to women: don't tell him how to please you, he already knows what to do, and if you don't like it, it's probably your fault.

so they're not only disseminating scientifically incorrect information, but propagating archaic notions of male-ness and female-ness. dunno, i thought we left our hunter-gatherer ways back in the Middle Ages, but I could be wrong ...

Maybe abstinence programs are not so bad. Afterall, I need all the virgins' blood to bathe in to retain my youthful, girlish appearance.

Thank you--I was hoping someone would focus on this. My GOD! I was stunned to read this. The big-government republicans quite literally supporting with my tax dollars state-sponsored gender socializatin. Thumbs way, way down, and I'm generally quite empathetic to abstinence (note the lack of the word "only") education.

Charming. .

To those who wrote that baloney, I say: that.
