Milk, Sheila, buses

I saw Milk the other day — by the way, great movie — and there were these two seemingly straight dudes in front of me. By the looks of it, they were forced by their female partners into watching it (I’m not exactly sure if I’d be happy with that, read on). What I couldn’t stand was how the dudes had to go to such great lengths to show how disgusted they were by two guys kissing onscreen.

They bury their heads in their hands, their girlfriend’s armpit or handbag; they grunt; they shift in their seats.

There wasn’t even tongue action going on — it was just two guys lip-locking.

Sheila Villanueva, a 25-year-old maid earning $2 a day, has five children.

“I married at eighteen. I had my first baby by the time I was nineteen. Then the babies came, one after the other,” she said.

“Life is so hard, kids get sick easily, prices of goods are so high. That’s one of the reasons why I don’t want them to have too many kids,” she said.

Still, Villanueva said she would not use contraceptives.

“Even if they say you’ll end up with too many kids, I don’t get swayed by their persuasions, I won’t use those contraceptives,” she said.

    @shiela — wtf? the thing with the church’s teachings on contraception is, you’re not supposed to use contraception because you have sex only in the context of having children in a marriage. if you’re married but don’t want kids, don’t have sex. if you really want to, use natural birth control but it’s not effective. so just don’t have sex. lol. it’s incorrect to just say, “the church said don’t use contraceptives, so i won’t use them.” anyway, the whole “have sex only if you’re married and want kids” is so 16th century. IMHO, it’s like the pharisees saying “hey wash your hands before eating or you’ll put dirt in your body which is the temple of god.” and jesus saying, “hello, that’s so 5000 BC! what makes you dirty isn’t what you put inside your mouth but what comes out of your mouth!”
