The Piecemeal Man

The weather and news has me depressed today. Joy Cardin is talking about the anti-choice legislation in South Dakota with Dr. Allen Unruh - founder of the Abstinence Clearinghouse. It's going to be signed by the governor within the next week. It's in direct contradiction to Roe v. Wade, of course; it's trying to overturn it with the new supreme court.

The legislation has no provisions for rape or incest; abortions will be legal only when the mother's health is at risk. South Dakota offers no protection to the mothers eother, or really strong anti-rape legislation. Because of this, the rapist could, in fact, sue the mother for parental rights to the child born from the rape.

Yeah, that makes perfect sense.

The next step, already under discussion is a ban on hormonal contraception. The hinging "fact" is that you are human from conception. According to Dr. Unruh, all research shows that babies are fully human at conception. (So... a blastocyst is a full human? Isn't pregnancy an infringement on the human's freedom?)

I want to beat Dr. Unruh, and so many other people, with a poo stick.

Wisconsin assembly passed the gay marriage ban Tuesday too, despite emphatic objection from many legislators.

Really not in a good mood today.

Klein Sexual Orientation Grid

I scored an average of 1.52

01 2 3 4 5 6


This result can also be related to the Kinsey Scale:

0 = exclusively heterosexual
1 = predominantly heterosexual, incidentally homosexual
2 = predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual
3 = equally heterosexual and homosexual
4 = predominantly homosexual, but more than incidentally heterosexual
5 = predominantly homosexual, incidentally heterosexual
6 = exclusively homosexual


The idea of this excercise is to understand exactly how dynamic a person's sexual orientation can be, as well as how fluid it can be over a person's lifespan. While a person's number of actual homo/heterosexual encounters may be easy to categorize, their actual orientation may be completely different. Simple labels like "homosexual", "heterosexual", and "bisexual" need not be the only three options available to us.

Take the quiz
