If you're opposed to casual sex, don't get a job as a porn star.
By the same token, if you're against dispensing medication like birth control pills, don't get a job as a pharmacist.

Simple.

11. Well, if two people go into a relationship, they ought to live to the words they claim to cherish
Those who are single and want casual sex, as long as they know of the dangers they may be risking, it's their lives. More power to them...

Personally, I don't want to risk herpes, syphilis, HIV, or pretty much giving life to any viral or bacterial life form that I wasn't born with, and I think it's just a civilized thing to do, what with thinking about one's partner too... it transcends the usual "freeper"/"fundie" argument.

15. Just an analogy for the people who claim pharmacists shouldn't have to fill prescriptions.
Saying that they should be able to refuse to do that and still keep their job is like saying that someone is entitled to be a porn star but not do the work because they're opposed to casual sex.

9. Being drafted isn't a matter of choice.
"If you're opposed to war, don't join the Army" would be better, but isn't as argumentative.

Face it... some of us just have a calling in life.

(Psst: I think the actual analogy you're looking for is "If you're opposed to war, don't be born in a country with an army")

pharmacist are free to find other careers.

37. They knew the work of pharmacists before they went to school for it.
They knew it in their schooling.

They knew it later.

49. Employment is optional for people born into wealth, the oligarchy.
Employment is a lightly pursuit for Bush's daughters, for instance.

I somehow don't see either the congress or President Obama doing that. It would be political suicide.

prescriptions written by a doctor.

Hold one, that's not it. I mean, "If you want safe highways, quit driving so doggone much!" No, wait... that's not quite how it goes, either. Geeze, this is kinda tough. Okay, give me a minute... I still need to work the kinks out here.

My conservative former coworker who thinks people who self-gratify go to hell...is posing for Playboy.

I have no idea...she doesn't need the money or anything. She just really really wants to do it for some reason.

52. Many people have vastly different standards for themselves or their group versus other people..
You see that all the time with fundies, ferinstance Bristol Palin and her babydaddy being feted at the RNC for consuming oxygen.

If one of Obama's girls was an unwed mother the very same people would have screamed so loudly the echos would still be returning from the asteroid belt.

47. there are some weird responses re: sex in this thread.
Edited on Tue Dec-09-08 12:59 AM by xchrom
are people REALLY so creeped out by sex that people who like casual sex are all disease laden -- or porn employment ncessarily means a danger to one's health?

seriously -- people need to fuck more -- or get a better therapist.

It's a no-brainer that pharmacists have to hand out these kind of medications. If you can't handle that, don't get the job.
