Photo of the Day: Walking Blue Condoms, We Need You in America!

The 100% Condom Use Campaign launch in Vietnam late last year was very festive, with banners, singers, and dancers. Best of all, there were walking blue condoms with Men in Black shades!  And there were white condoms in cute tiny blue shoes.  Really cute!

Condoms! They remind me of somebody …. somebody talking a lot about contraception and sexual ethics around the campaign trail:

“One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country […] Many of the Christian faith have said, well, that’s OK; contraception is OK. It’s not OK. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.”

  1. “Things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be”? “Supposed to be” according to whom, I wonder. The new spate of appalling laws nationwide do more than hint that the Taliban is winning. Next: virginity tests before marriage. But only for women, of course.

    • Of course. And these appalling laws that seem to spread across the country are all sponsored by men, who obviously think that there’s nothing to it as long as women close their eyes and play dead.
