...but they were to the effect that sex and motherhood should be treated neither ribaldry nor reverence. 'It is too serious a subject for ribaldry, and I myself cannot understand reverence towards anything that is physical.' There, in a few words, is the whole twisted and tortured priggishness which poisons the present age. The person who cannot laugh at sex ought to be kicked; and the person who cannot reverence pain ought to be killed."
- G. K. Chesterton, Questions of Divorce
