Bernie has a very interesting record on a number of subjects. Sex is one of them and specifically, sex and children:
This is no joke…
In 1969 Bernie wrote an article about the ban of the film “I am Curious: A Film in Yellow.” It was a Swedish film that had scenes of people having intercourse. Today we call that “porn,” then it was an “art film.” He wrote an article decrying prudes and said,
“Now, if children go around naked, they [sic] are liable to see one another’s sex organs, and maybe touch them. Terrible thing! If we bring children up like this, it will probably ruin the whole pornography business, not to mention a large portion of the general economy that makes its money by playing on people’s sexual frustrations.”
Huh? Is Bernie promoting sex with kids? There’s more…
And then there’s his theory that sex causes cancer in women. Really.
“…What do you think it really means when 3 doctors, after intense study, write that ‘of the 26 patients (under 51) that developed breast cancer, one was sexually adjusted.’ It means, very bluntly, that the way you bring up your daughter with regards to sexual attitudes may very well determine whether or not she will get breast cancer, among other things…”
I can’t make this stuff up.
Bernie won’t be asked about this stuff, the press would say it’s “too old.” In fact, it’s “too weird” and Bernie should be asked if he still believes that sex causes cancer. Not to mention his opinions on sex and children.
Who is Bernie Sanders? The people have a right to know! And less you think it’s just us – here’s a very diverse group of folks asking and reporting on these same questions about “The Bern” —
