women might get ideas

By Diogenes (articles ) | Sep 26, 2005

Wait! Wait! Wait! You're getting it all wrong!

We enlisted millions of women as combat troops in the Sexual Revolution through a brilliant recruiting campaign. We talked about "equality" and "empowerment" and "liberation," when the real goal was to make more women available to satisfy men's desires.

And it's worked beautifully, thus far. We've severed the link between intercourse and reproduction, allowing for purely recreational sexual activity.

But if reproduction and intercourse are unrelated, women might get ideas-- particularly if we keep talking about freedom and autonomy. And this is definitely not what we had in mind.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    I know of many children (and sexual partners, in marriage or otherwise) who are "loved" the way someone loves a pet. As long as they make a person feel good and require no great sacrifice, they are cherished. Much talk about relationships, but little work at building them. As desperately as we need good priests, we need good families as role models for our children. I know so few men or women who put God first and their families second and other interests further down the list.

    In addition to the recent article "Mommy, I want to be a porn star", maybe the British have forgotten what their sexual organs are designed for, most likely through lack of appropriate use of them.

    "Many people in their late 30s or early 40s without children are completely absorbed in their professional lives and have less opportunities to conceive. Many couples I see have one of them working abroad and the most they see each other is at weekends." And that doesn't clue them into the idea that maybe they don't have time to be parents.
