What Can Your Traditional Family Values Center Do For You?

With the passage of his amendment mandating centers for “traditional family values” wherever a state-funded women’s, gender and sexuality center exists at a Texas university, Representative Wayne Christian comes out and says what we’ve all been too namby-pamby PC to admit even to ourselves: women, gays, lesbians, feminists and other of their selfish, family-destroying ilk, can’t just live peacefully alongside those who believe in traditional family values. That’s why we need a specialized safe space for heterosexual Christian men–something that is swiftly being taken away by over-funded, over-staffed gender and sexuality centers where heterosexual men are literally forced–LITERALLY FORCED–to not have to visit them or have anything to do with them if they don’t want to.

So let’s compare. What are some services and causes provided and championed by, for example, the University of Texas at Austin’s gender and sexuality center that the Wayne Christian Center For Only Doing It With Your Wife To Make Babies can help counter? How will our lives be different when the traditional family values are finally brought to the forefront? What would a world in which traditional family values weren’t marginalized to the point of obscurity look like?

I made a chart.

    It’s just stunning to me the un-necessary, mean-spirited bills coming out of the TX Lege, such as Rep. Christian’s bill, HB 15, HB 2629 and SB 257 (this link takes you to a short post criticizing the bill: http://thiefofenglish.blogspot.com/2011/03/happy-womens-history-month.html). Although, there is a little glimmer of sanity, such as Rep. Luna Hernandez’s HB 3230 (http://www.legis.state.tx.us/BillLookup/history.aspx?LegSess=82R&Bill=HB3230)

    BTW, I really enjoy your rendering of current events with smart writing and humor.
