Response to sakabatou (Reply #42)

Fri Dec 7, 2012, 01:44 AM

46. I first heard the word...

... Calif..nicator about 20 years ago when I moved from California (Bay Area) to Oregon. Even back then I think the term was used with a certain fondness. Still is - we love our neighbors to the south. No offense intended, I hope none taken. You do have a lot of lights though.

My favorite recent comment about California and sex was made by Geoffrey Nunberg, who is a professor at Berkeley and author of the book Assent of the A-Word: Assholism the First 65 Years. In the preface he says something like (I couldn't find the exact quote):

I come from Berkeley, where we will defend to the death your right to do whatever you want in the privacy of your bedroom, as long as you don't smoke afterward.


Hey, what's so funny about peace, love, and understanding?
