Not Just Homos

Posted by – March 25, 2012

What’s interesting to me is that it’s never just “sexual deviants” that are targeted by people who are homophobic. You’ll notice the same crowd goes after women who expect to make decisions about their own sexualities and bodies, and in general are anti-sex. This little blog, Chew on This, in predicting the dearth of accurate sex info if someone like Santorum is elected, is spot on. The laws governing who can own, buy or sell sex toys often go hand in glove with laws that govern other aspects of sexuality, whether it’s birth control or sex work or homosexuality.

    The most refined philosophy of ethics out there has already examined the “politics of disgust” and found it quite useless as a basis for lawmaking, vastly inferior to the “harm principle” of John Stuart Mill.
