Yup. Sharon Begley of Newsweek rips Christine O’Donnell for her stance against masturbation. She says the prohibition against masturbation is like…sooooo unscientific. (Not real science, the kind of science they make up to fit their agenda.)
Tim Graham of Newsbusters reminds us of Begley’s history with “science”:
Liberal media people have been amusing themselves endlessly with clips of Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell’s video clip from 1996 saying the Bible says masturbation is wrong. Newsweek’s Sharon Begley is taking this to a whole new realm with a silly article with a link titled “Why Masturbation Helps Procreation.” This is the same “scientific” writer who diagnosed from afar that George W. Bush had a dangerous alcoholic’s “pathological certainty” in sticking to the war in Iraq; and the same writer who saw psychological problems in ObamaCare opponents. Begley began by responding to fellow liberals who might insist you can’t hold this poor woman to an intellectual standard
Here’s here reasons Begley says O’Donnell is wrong about masturbation from her piece in Newsweek:
1. “Masturbation might remove old, worn-out, broken sperm from the reproductive tract.”
2. “Masturbation might be a form of advertising. According to this idea, males that engage in autoeroticism signal to possible mates as well as competitors how much they have to offer.”
3. “Masturbation might be a sort of victory lap.”
4. “Masturbation can serve a hygiene function. According to this idea, males engage in autoeroticism because it cleans the reproductive tract and reduces the chance of acquiring a sexually transmitted disease from a female that he mated with and who had other recent partners.” (She got this from a study on squirrels.)
OK. I didn’t know that “science” had so much “can,” “might” or “squirrels.” Sharon Begley gives “science” a bad name.
Sharon Begley is clearly and conically unhinged. But these pieces are always interesting to see who they’re attacking. And right now it’s Christine O’Donnell. And why? Because she believes masturbation is a sin? I’d imagine most Christians would.
Liberal elites can’t stand to see Christianity in public. It drives them crazy. And then they write crazy articles in Newsweek to make us laugh. You know, pieces like these would be dangerous if anyone actually read Newsweek anymore.
