Family planning

      "Elites would have us make babies by putting the woman on this side of the room and the man on that side of the room while the elites stand in the middle of the room taxing sperm and eggs."

     P.J. O'Rourke, "The revolt against the elites and the limits of populism," The weekly standard 22, no. 22 (February 13, 2017):  29 (26-29).
     O'Rourke has this wrong, though.  Because even sex is, of course, just a social (or, better, individual) construct.
