Thom Hartmann's Blog - Feb 14th 2008
This morning I had a debate with Carrie Lukas, Vice President of Policy and Economics with the Independant Women's Forum, about their "Take Back the Date" college campus campaign to "rescue romance from the radical feminists and their hook-up culture." I countered that the "hook up" culture is nothing new...Ben Franklin talked about it. Further, the 60's free love generation hurt women more than helped them. Carrie insists that Valentine's Day has become known as V-Day due to the presentation of the "crude" play "The Vagina Monologues." I pointed out that this is a play to make people aware of violence against women. I further asked Carrie if she supports sex education in the schools...Carrie says it's up to parents to control what kids learn and where they learn it.
