"The wicked fluids of iniquitous arousal flooded my withered and broken little soldier." - Elf M. Sternberg

"The wicked fluids of iniquitous arousal flooded my withered and broken little soldier."
Terri Leo is a popular villain in the science press right now. She's on the Texas State Board of Education, the second-largest textbook buying body in the country, and she has worked liked a demon to get references to evolution, global warming, pollution, overpopulation, and contraception from textbooks used in her state. Given that her state is the second-largest textbook buying body in the country, that gives her a scary amount of power in deciding what goes into textbooks. She's responsible for the acceptance of a "health" textbook that recommends, as a form of birth control, naps, on the grounds that "it may be harder to make the responsible decision to remain abstinent when you are tired."

This year, her target is "asexual stealth phrases." She wants phrases like "married people" replaced with "A husband and wife in a life-long union," claiming that the original phrase may confuse children into believing that men can marry men or something.

General J.C. Christian has something to say about "asexual stealth phrases". I won't ruin the lines; they're worth reading cold.
