Cover story, Jan. 16, "ERA Yes"

Not surprised by Utah mucking it up!

Women weren't given the right to vote. We fought hard and died for it. Remember that in November.

Opinion, Jan. 16, "Seeing Red"

OK, then have the government make your tampons. You are not entitled to the labor of another.

Online news post, Jan. 17, "The Great Condom Conundrum"

The whole thing just makes me mad. The campaign is clever and inventive. This decision by the governor's office so very, very late in the game is just a ridiculous waste of funds. It's done, suck it up cupcakes, learn a lesson about communication next time, and let the condoms lay where they may.

God damn it! I want some of these so bad.

It's insane and these [condoms] are amazing! I don't even need them, but I want them and want to frame them. That makes them hella effective.
Via Instagram

Wait, the governor doesn't approve of sexual innuendo being used in an ad promoting condoms? He does know what they're used for, right?

This was a clever way to deal with a very real problem. Gary Herbert and a great many other Utahns need to grow up.

What's grosser than a used condom? Lots of unused ones in a landfill.

Maybe there could be a pop-up clandestine online auction to sell off the "shocking" condoms and recoup some money for a good cause. Oh my hell!

I thought they were pretty clever ... also, directed at those who would use them in a memorable, non-judgmental way. No sex without guilt in Utah, I guess.

The governor wants everyone to live by his rules and mindset. Can't wait till we elect a governor who is progressive.

Like Prop 2, you get it his way!

No surprise the same man who declared porn a public health crisis pulled the plug on this program.
Tyler Johnson

This whole campaign is amazing and I support it 100%! Let's protect our teens from sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancy since it's been proven that abstinence only doesn't work!
Whitney Brinton

Probably got a call from Gayle Ruzicka.
Rob Stone

I'm just over here absolutely outraged that good people are doing the work to help educate people about preventing sexually transmitted disease. And, gasp, unplanned pregnancy. I mean, the nerve.
