Why even call it Sex Ed?

2008-06-03 18:21:38.193422+00 by meuon 3 comments

Salt Lake Tribune Article about a "Sex Ed" teacher that may have answered questions about "homosexual sex, oral sex and masturbation".

The kids admit they were asking the questions.

If they can't ask questions to their teacher, and I'm guessing they can't ask their parents and get a straight answer... that leaves them the internet and experimentation with each other.

The icing on the cake:

Rep. Carl Wimmer, R-Herriman, opened a bill file this week and said he will introduce legislation in January that would enforce criminal penalties on teachers who deviate from state law governing sex education, which requires that it focus on physical and emotional development of adolescents, healthy relationships and the threat and prevention of diseases. The law prohibits promoting or encouraging sexual behavior. His bill also would create a registry to record the names of teachers who violate the law.

Further evidence that "education", especially grade school, is about social conditioning, and not the imparting of knowledge.

There are so many things that it is just too dangerous to know. If those damn god hating pro-evolution science teachers didn't instruct innocent adolescents in the practice of sell pollution, then there would be no more blind and hairy handed children with TB. And we all know where homosexual children come from.
