I take back every bad thing I may have said about the French.

Right wing politics have seemed to take a bizarre turn in France. Although the country seems to have as many political parties as Angelina Jolie has adopted children, one presidential candidate decided to heighten the social discourse. Holocaust denier and down player of 9/11 Jean-Marie Le Penn is adamantly against distribution of prophylactics to teenagers. Instead of engaging in carnal activities the candidate suggests that young people masturbate claiming "it's a much simpler method."

Now a bureaucrat or politician suggesting self stimulation as opposed to engaging in traditional or Clintonesque sex is not something so out of the ordinary, but when stories like this stop being printed I suggest government officials offer visual aids to assist youngsters in their quest.

Then again the French have Alizee, so really boys shouldn't have a problem finding inspiration for lonely times. If they do, well they can read about this.

Happy Easter from the folks at Erik's Ramblings.

Masturbate instead, Le Pen tells women's forum

Why do people still pay attention to anything from France?
