    That is a falsehood. The Missouri Senate candidate was virtually excommunicated.

    Absolutely, it is demo's that circle the wagons, and protect their idiots....Repub's have had their arses handed to them over the years trying to take the "high road" with things like that..

    Not talking repubs alone here.
    Democrats are no better in this regard.

    That's right. Let's not forget that conservatives have a better understanding of how human reproduction functions than do liberals.

    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    In the General Social Survey, the following question was asked:

    Father, not mother, determines a child's sex?

    72.0% of Democrats agreed.
    77.3% of Republicans agreed.

    I suppose it's too much to ask for a link, as well as the survey's methodology. Also, the idea that this is statistically significant (or telling of anything, really) is pretty weak.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    My limited understanding indicates that timing is the main component here - unless mothers have some unconscious control over what sex the child will be?
