Well, and then there’s Internet porn.
(WMC-TV) – Tennessee senators approved an update to the state’s abstinence-based sex education law that includes warnings against “gateway sexual activity.”
In a new family life instructions bill, holding hands and kissing could be considered gateways to sex.
Abstinence education has not worked real dandy in Tennessee.
According to a 2009 Youth Risk Behavior Study, 61 percent of Memphis City high school students and 27 percent of middle school students have had sex. That’s higher than the national average.
So, obviously, the solution is to teach them to abstain from hand holding and kissing.
I know there are people in Tennessee whose job it is to go around and shine flashlights in parked cars, hoping to catch teenagers canoodlin’. So now are they going to send the Belles of Heaven Republican Women’s Club to walk around hitting teenagers with a big stick if they hold hands?
You know what I think? I think Republicans keep bringing up stuff like this just have an opportunity to talk dirty.
Being an idiot is a gateway to being a Republican.
Thanks to Robert for the heads-up.
