Leftism is about Collectivism and a big part of that is control, of everything
The “right to privacy” when it came to the bedroom was the casus belli the Left used to upend social sexual mores and institute contrary values; the “right to privacy” when it came to sex was never the purpose, but solely the means. Now that the end of upsetting and recombobulating sexual norms has been achieved, “the right to privacy” when it comes to sexuality can be readily eschewed.
A case in point comes from a requirement that Clemson University tried to push that would have required students to list their sexual history, or be punished for refusing to do so.
“[T]he South Carolina university is asking students invasive and personal questions about their drinking habits and sex life as part of what they’ve billed as an online Title IX training course.
“‘How many times have you had sex (including oral) in the last 3 months?’ asks one question.
“‘With how many different people have you had sex (including oral) in the last 3 months?’ asks another.
When you wish to understand why the Left does certain things, remind yourself that Leftism is Collectivism, and Collectivism is about control!
