I've always laughed whenever I've heard people call Americans "puritanical" for not going along with whatever the latest sexual/behavioral deviancy is. These people prove that they don't have clue what a "puritan" actually is. This is the same crowd who claims American culture denies "women's rights." It just proves that they've never actually lived in a country where women's rights were actually in any danger at all, that allows them to think women are complete equals to men--nay treated superiorly--in America. It's just laughable.
