A Strawberry Flavored Lube Too Far

In an “Are you kidding me?” moment:

When some parents learned about the distribution of the kits, they complained to the school administration, school board and AIDS Services.

“The biggest issue among parents and some staff is that AIDS Services for the Monadnock Region distributed sexually enticing products,” said parent Brandie Roof.

Roof said she was also offended that as a parent, she was not notified of the visit from AIDS Services, the distribution of the kits, or given a chance to have her children “opt out” of the day’s events.

Let’s review: we’re talking about high school students here – we’re not talking about children, we’re talking about adolescents, and anywhere from 2/3 to 3/4 of them will be sexually active by the time they graduate high school.  The parents were upset because a regional AIDS service came in to educate students on how to avoid AIDS and distributed to the students “safe sex kits” which included flavored lube.  Parents were outraged and lodged complaints.  I suppose they’d rather their kids have unsafe sex than know how to have safe sex?

I’m out of patience with these nonsense controversies.  We’re not talking about a couple of kids groping each other in the back seat of a car – we’re talking about massively life altering and potentially life threatening illness here and kids have to know how to protect themselves.  Keep your knees together and think of Jesus has never worked and isn’t going to start working no matter how magically we think about it.  Kids already know condoms exist and they’ve heard about flavored lube but they know lots of things that are wrong and if giving them correct information makes adults uncomfortable, adults need to get over it. 

Teaching kids how to protect themselves from HIV and AIDS is a human rights issue.

“Christian nation” rhetoric – historically, legally and religiously wrong

In the D-News, LaVarr Webb spouts the usual nonsense right-wing Christian nation claims”:

As for Buttars stating that the United States is a “Christian nation,” any sensitive soul who wants to read some sort of insult into that can get offended if they wish. A majority of people in this country are Christians, so in that sense the U.S. is a Christian nation.

Webb misses the point. Read the rest of this entry »
