Is Government Obsessed With Our Privates?

The National Survey For Family Growth has concluded that 25% of young adults have not had sex.

As interesting as these figures are, they are not the real issue.

The vital questions that come to mind are these.

If it is compulsory to answer the American Community Survey , the bureaucratic euphemism under which the intrusive Census Long Form is now conducted, under threat of fine, is it also compulsory to answer some pervert civil servant as to your most private matters?

Also just as important, if answering the National Survey For Family Growth is not compulsory, how come what one does with their privates in the privacy of one’s bedroom is not the government’s business, but how many places one has to use one’s privates for excretory purposes in the confines of one’s home is?
