Just kidding. Some dope at the Burnt Orange Report blog by the name of Ben Sherman writes that if the Texas legislature passes the abortion bill that’s currently before it, then casual sex is doomed, he tells you, doomed in the Lone Star State. His piece is titled “Bro-Choice: How HB2 Hurts Texas Men Who Like Women.”
Your sex life is at stake. Can you think of anything that kills the vibe faster than a woman fearing a back-alley abortion? Making abortion essentially inaccessible in Texas will add an anxiety to sex that will drastically undercut its joys. And don’t be surprised if casual sex outside of relationships becomes far more difficult to come by.
Reality: The bill bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, and would bring abortion clinics up to the standards already in force on ambulatory surgical centers. Like dentists offices.
If that impacts your sex life, you have issues well outside any legislature’s ability to help you or your vibe, bro.
The lone commenter on the BOR piece sums things up nicely:
I can’t believe what I am reading. I am stunned by the stupidity of this article. Are you actually arguing that it affects your ability to shag your girlfriend whenever you want to?
Burnt Orange Report isn’t some fringe Texas Dem blog. It’s the unofficial blog of all things Democrat in the state of Texas. It has connections to a former Democrat bigwig in the state House. Sherman’s piece represents mainstream Democrat Party thinking.
Which is pretty sad.
