Oh, Scarlett. Why did you have to and open that mouth and totally ruin it for me?
SCARLETT JOHANSSON has slammed US PRESIDENT GEORGE W BUSH for his staunch conservative views on sex, criticising the Republican for being too unrealistic in his opinions on the topic. The LOST IN TRANSLATION star last month (10OCT06) boasted about being so “socially aware” she gets tested for HIV twice a year. A staunch Christian, Bush is vehemently anti-abortion and is seeking to have the operation made illegal in all US states. During his time as Governor of Texas, Bush overhauled the state’s sex education system and high school students were taught abstinence was the only way to protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases (STD). Johansson says, “We are supposed to be liberated in America but if our President had his way, we wouldn’t be educated about sex at all. “Every woman would have six children and we wouldn’t be able to have abortions.”
Tested for HIV twice a year?! I like the article’s little bias points. “Vehemently anti-abortion.” Not “strongly pro-life.” And notice what Scarlett says, which is completely false, “we wouldn’t be educated about sex at all.” No, you’d be educated about sex, and educated that the best possible method to avoid STDs is by abstinence. But asking someone who’s sexually active to an extraordinary degree (2 HIV tests a year!) about abstinence-only education is going to illicit that response.
I’ll also highlight her last line. “Every woman would have six children and we wouldn’t be able to have abortions.” Notice the context. In other words, that woman could abort the children and have less kids! Oh, but they’re not kids, they’re fetuses. Gotta keep that straight.
Needless to say she just took the ol’ Garafolo jump off Doc’s Top Ten list. Janeane did the same thing when she showed up on Fox News Sunday spouting disproven conspiracy theories. And let’s not forget Cameron Diaz and the Bush Doctrine for Legalization of Rape.
