During the case United States v. Windsor, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg reasoned that, since gay marriages that are legal at the state-level aren’t recognized by the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), there are “two kinds of marriage; the full marriage, and then this sort of skim-milk marriage.”
Fans of the U.S. Supreme Court — or as they call themselves on Twitter and Facebook, Supreme Courtesans — may remember the “broccoli” argument from the case National Federation of Independent Businesses v. Sebelius, where businesses challenged the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s consitutionality. Also, about whether people have to eat broccoli.
And until we get the snack machines fixed in the Highest Court in the Land, we will continue to hear about skim milk, broccoli and maybe even grilled chicken during all of our most pressing legal discussions.
I’ve heard plenty of three word phrases in my life. Some have been utterly spectacular and they do nothing but brighten up your day. Some are not so divine. And yet still, there are others, like “Ruth Bader Ginsburg,” that will simply shrivel your soul back from the enlightened state it might have been … or at least, where your soul might be located.
But what no man wants to hear, much less an entire country, is “severe sexual repression.” Unfortunately, China is hearing that very phrase attributed to itself.
It would appear that in Guangdong, STD’s are spreading like wildfire through a gasoline soaked Amish barn. But how can that happen in a repression? Well, migrant workers are turning to sex workers more and more thanks to being away from their families; however, when they come back, they end up bringing more than just a week’s wage. Would you be happy if your husband came back with a tongleberry on his tackleberry? This is largely being attributed to the area having very little education in sexual activity.
The guys have a different opinion on the matter. Personally, we think this might be more closely linked to China’s decision to ban the consumption of canines. After all, you didn’t hear about this news until after the ban was proposed, right?
