America’s War on Sex
“If you’re uncomfortable about blacks, you are a racist; uncomfortable about Jews, you are anti-Semitic. But today, if you’re uncomfortable about sex, you’re a civic leader.”
That’s Marty Klein at his finest: brutally honest, scathingly funny. The President of the ACLU introduces this powerful book, which shows how the government and Religious Right use the regulation of sexual expression, entertainment, information, and health care to undermine our secular democracy.
Marty’s meticulous research shows how today’s public policies attempt to solve the wrong sexual “problems”–guaranteeing more of the real sexual problems with which American individuals and communities continue to struggle. These drive the demand for more repressive “solutions” which, of course, don’t work either.
