    Separation of lawmakers and educational institutions is on par with separation of church and state to me. This is the shit we fought the Communists for.

    Republicans want a new Dark Age. What's new?

    I don't think all Republicans want it, just crazy ones who believe American politics should reflect religion.

    Just look at this loony:

    I'd say a lot of Michel Foucault on sexuality and possible Judith Butler's (though an American) critique of Michel Foucault on notions of power, sexuality, gender, and heteronormativity would constitute some queer theory. Its also probably some of Jacques Rancière’s work, which I am only slightly familiar with, about the political implications of queer theory.

    I would go crazy and guess that it's queer theory with a focus on the country of France.

    When you guys ask questions in such a condescending way you really start to sound like the hicks in the article. "What do them faggots need all that fancy book learnin' for? All I needed was 3rd grade reading, riting, and rythmetic"

    It's not the stupidity per se that's so odd, it's the belligerent insistence on stupidity. Like it's a badge of honor to know nothing and to hate anyone that does.

    Amazing.


    Exactly. It's also simply lazy. What's harder: spending your life working toward educating yourself and improving your brain function and critical thinking skills, or sitting back and just absorbing whatever bullshit your minister spouts at you?

    She does look like a lesbian.

    As far as education in oral sex goes I believe that some do need to learn that.

    I honesty think it's more sinister than that. Call me cynical, but some of these bigots are wicked smart, and have years of training in debate and obfuscation. They know that an educated audience reduces their power.

    Hmm... I studied a lot of oral sex in college, but that was mainly with the water polo team... never took a lesson from a professor.

    Haha, thanks stud. Even before I was at UCLA, I would train at their swimming facilities when I was in high school. I remember one time as I was getting into the pool that they were just coming out and showering... It was at that moment that I knew my ultimate goal in life was to attend that university... or at least become a plumber for the school.
