Sexual news in the media:

Sexual news about specific, active topics are located in separate sections:

bullet Abortion access
bullet Homosexual rights
bullet Gay ordination; civil unions in churches.
bulletSame-sex marriages and civil unions
bulletReparative therapy

This section deals with matters of human sexuality of a general nature, not included in the above lists.

We just started this list in mid-2003, so there is not much to report at this time.

bullet2003-JUL-10: House refuses to block grants: Representative Pat Toomey, (R-PA), unsuccessfully attempted to block House approval of a group of four grants for sexual research:
bullet"Mood arousal and sexual risk taking," to be conducted by the Kinsey Institute. This appears to be a study of how people become careless about protection against pregnancy and STDs when they are sexually aroused. In the words of a comedian whose identity is forgotten: "When God created men, he gave them a brain and sexual organs, but only enough blood to run one at a time."
bullet"Sexual habits of older men," a study by New England Research Institutes Inc.
bullet"Drug use and HIV-related behavior by San Francisco's Asian prostitutes / masseuses," by the University of California-San Francisco's Department of Medicine.
bullet"American Indian and Alaskan Native lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and 'two-spirited individuals'," by the University of Washington. Before the arrival of Christianity, Native Americans had historically been accepting of persons with minority sexual orientations and characteristics.

Toomey said: "I ask my colleagues, who thinks this stuff up?  These are not worthy ... of taxpayer funds." Representative David Obey, (D-WI) said: "We have no business making political judgments on those issues." The grants were approved by an extremely narrow vote of 212 to 210. 1
