Utah Lege's New Sex Ed Rules: Don't Say Sex
Proving just how good sweet, sweet censorship can be, Utah's Legislature has passed new statewide sex-ed rules that ban teachers from discussing contraception, premarital sex, and teh Ghey, even when directly asked by "the children." Perhaps Utah, "The Land of the Saints," is emulating the smashing success of the "Don't Say Gay" rules in Michele Bachmann's home school district, Anoka-Hennepin, as evidenced by the veritable Minnesota tsunami of suicides by bullied gay teens; the "Don't Say Gay" rules worked so well that the district finally overturned them last month after a federal lawsuit from grieving and angry families. (Might not want to read Rolling Stone's original, excellent expose of the district's handiwork unless you're in an enviably calm -- zen, even -- state of mind.)
FOX 13 News -- which, it would like to remind you, was the only teevee station to bother showing up -- reports:
“My problem is that we’re having essentially complete strangers teaching our children, who frankly we don’t know who they are and exactly what they’re teaching, with the most sensitive issues that do belong in the home,” said one Republican Senator during Tuesday’s floor debate.
That is true, and the only sensible solution is to abolish all school completely, and at once; we just don't know what those teachers are "saying" with their "mouths" to "the children." Nip that shit in the bud!
For some added sad, sad fun, do watch the video above, and marvel that Utah is home to at least one chic female Democrat elected representative who can barely even speak any more, she's been so beaten down by teh Crazy. Hey Lady Senator Pat Jones (D - Salt Lake County): come on out to the coast (either of them) where, we assure you, it gets better.
House Bill 363 passed the Senate 19 to 10.
