Just say no.

Mrs. P. and I have been discussing the latest chapter in the great contraceptive dust-up, which Pundette ably summarizes here.
 We are always being urged to do with less for the greater good and for our own: eat less fat and sugar, use less gasoline, turn down your air conditioner, go without electricity for Earth Hour, have fewer children, don't smoke at all, reduce, reuse, recycle! Why do all those strictures go out the window when it comes to sex? Surely these thoroughly modern women have been enlightened by the progressive teaching that sex is no more significant than any other pleasurable activity. So why isn't it subject to the same economies?
If students can't afford contraception, perhaps it is time they tightened their belts.
