The conference will take place in Chi-Town May 31 through June 3rd (anxiously glances at checkbook)…and is so close to St. Louis that a bitch really should find a way to attend (glances at checkbook again and curses the power of money).
Trust that I shall alert the Chicago-based flock of bitchitude if I confirm!
Anyhoo, a bitch was talking about sex just the other day.
Pause…lift artfully shaped eyebrow…continue.
Specifically, this bitch was chatting about a piece of information passed on to me regarding a certain former U.S. AID director Randall Tobias…and his alleged use of an alleged call girl service…and the hypocrisy of that shit in the face of his demand that others sign on to an anti-prostitution oath in exchange for aid.
Now, a bitch should confess that I’m not at all fond of oath-like things being tied in to aid programs.
They come across as rather ‘master to slave’ to me...like the oath-based equivalent of making someone call themselves Toby.
Tobias and his fellow Bushie minions demanded anti-prostitution oaths from countries who were trying to get some aid to fight AIDS. The oath, which was one of a whole shit load of policy-for-votes creations set forth by the we’re willing to trade policy for votes Bush administration, was so broadly worded that it prevented those receiving funds from doing outreach to sex workers.
At first that made no sense to me…sex workers being at risk and the aid supposedly being there to deal with risk. But then I reminded myself that these minions and those they serve feel that the wages for sin should truly be death.
It struck me as fitting that Tobias, who enforced that fucked up from all angles policy, should be undone by an alleged call girl scandal.
Oh, what the heck…let’s have some fun!
***brings out the abstinence-fidelity score card with a look a glee***
Shall we proceed?
Following the "A" followed by "B" followed by "C" model...
Well, he resigned rather quickly…which a bitch doubts he’d do if all he was getting was a massage.
Toby…err, ummm...Tobias gets 0 out of 3 on the abstinence tip.
