They Tried To Warn You Kids In "Footloose"


Story.

Let's check out the student handbook:



Supt. Jim Rumage: “If kids are not having any sexual activity, they can’t get this disease. See what I'm saying? That’s not a bad program.”

Man, I completely agree that abstinence is 100% effective against pregnancy and STDs.

But what's wrong with providing the kids with a little scientific-based knowledge about pregnancy/STD prevention on the off chance that they choose to ignore your abstinence advice? Not that kids ever ignore an adult's advice about anything, but still...

It's a hard concept for worldly people.

Don't penetrate until you're married and you won't get sick.
Don't drink and drive and you won't get a DWI.
Don't rob a store and you won't get shot.
Don't hang out with thugs and people won't suspect you of stealing.
Don't take meth and won't become a meth-head.

It is a simple concept.

Perfect example for non-parents to blame a district for not having a sex ed class.

Most of the time, whores breed whores.

The kids with The Clap are going to get The Clap whether you tell them to put a rubber on or not.

It is quite odd that the people and public officials of Texas would demonstrate the complete lack of intellectual acuity that one would expect from a rock, and be overtly proud of it.
It is becoming clear that Texans are indeed the mouth breathing, knuckle dragging cretins the rest of the world thinks we are.

Well it is proven fact that kids will not engage in sexual activity once they know that abstinence is the preferred method of preventing diseases and babies.

This is the result of all those liberal politicians passing laws down in Austin that prohibit teaching sex education in Public Schools. The liberals don't want their kids to know that using a condom will help prevent sexually transmitted diseases like chlamydia and or prevent conception of a child.

4:56 are you out of your bug eyed mind? What evangelical - southern baptist-church of christ legislators do you reckon passed the bill outlawing sex education? It weren't the heathens.

Well it's a proven fact that disease and pregnancy doesn't occur after a kid takes a sex ed class.

Just say no. It worked for the drug wars.

Lots of ignorant/arrogant comments. Actually read the guidelines. Nowhere does it prohibit discussing condoms and other Liberal-approved sexual information.

Teenagers not engage in sex just because you tell them not to do it? Why didn't I think of that.

Doesn't Supt. Rummage look exactly like the person who knows best about talking straight with teenagers about that sex thing? Somehow I don't think abstinence is a problem when nobody is offering to rock your world. Ever. Am I write, Rummage?

Teenagers also know about condoms, yet they apparently don't always use them. Or they do, and the condoms don't work. So telling them about the most effective method of birth control and disease prevention doesn't seem like such a bad idea.

Oh, the irony is thick with this one. While it doesn't prohibit discussing non-abstinence education. But it does say you have to teach abstinence more than the other. So for every minute of actual disease and pregnancy education, you have to have over a minute of Conservative-approved abstinence preaching.

Anonymous said...

Since we all agree that kids are going to have sex no matter what we teach them, we may as well go ahead and teach both. That way everyone wins and only Wordy's kids will learn that condoms are only for liberals and all sex should be strictly in pursuit of procreation.

SpanishWarDonkey said...

What the conservative folks in Texas won't admit is that the theological approach to Sex Ed won't work. I love the shit I see on facebook about Obama and repeating the same thing is insanity but we've been doing it here for decades and nobody wants to change... Funny how that works the other way around.

I wondered if abstinence-only sex education was God's will, and so I read my Bible, and the Bible taught me that lots of people are going to have sex outside of marriage, no matter if you promise to strike them dead on the spot.

wordkyle said...

The curriculum was mischaracterized earlier. I pointed that out. Also, every argument you try against abstinence applies just as much to condoms, etc. (Condoms don't work if they're not used, right?) Except abstinence is the most effective prevention against both disease and pregnancy. Why would you be against teaching the best practice?

Anonymous said...

God really screwed this up. Pretty lousy thing to do; designing the human body so that it kicks in sexually before good Christian folks think it should.

wordkyle said...

So you guys want to combine promoting abstinence with your anti-Christian prejudice? That's pretty stupid. It gives Christianity the credit for the only 100% effective method of birth control and STD prevention.

I think boys should be taught to keep their zippers zipped so the don't have to be concerned with a nasty disease! Or use protection.

Wordkyle.....I know this will blow your brain but hang on. There might actually be a kid in a class in Texas that's not....wait for it....a Christian! Thunderbolt!
I taught sex education in Richardson Texas and trust me, little Johnny is pretty confused. One 17 year old boy thought all girls had their lady time at the same time he therefore assumed having sex with any girl the same time of the month would avoid pregnancy. (Group Rhythm method!) I could list a few hundred funnies here from that experience but you Christians might not understand as you only practice abstinence.

In the 1950's we were taught only to say no.
That didn't work at all.

Now that is a fake fact pulled right out of your... wait I can't tell you about that, but I can tell you not to do that. Unfortunately you are going to do it anyway.

The way to prevent drowning is stay out of water. Too bad I can't teach you to swim. There's lots of different ways to swim and some work better than others. But just stay out of the water.

wordkyle said...

1029 - Why is it a "fake fact?" You are correct, staying out of the water is a 100% effective way to avoid drowning. Not having sex -- abstinence -- is a 100% effective way to avoid pregnancy and STDs. That's a factual fact.

When there are dangers in the water -- pollution, sharks, tsunamis -- we instruct people to stay out of the water. We don't give them life jackets and tell them they're safe from all the dangers.

(And no, I'm not saying sex is dangerous. But childhood pregnancies and STDs are.)

It's a fake fact because abstinence education doesn't work. Kids are going to have sex whether you like it or not and a 2014 report from Mississippi proves this:

http://www.siecus.org/document/docWindow.cfm?fuseaction=document.viewDocument&documentid=201&documentFormatId=257

Mississippi has consistently had some of the worst sexual health indicators in the country. The state has the second highest rate of teen pregnancies, the second highest rates of gonorrhea and chlamydia infections, and the seventh highest rate of HIV infections.

Even though teens have been shielded from what might be deemed “inappropriate” sex ed content, SIECUS found that kids in the Mississippi are having sex earlier and more frequently than the national average. Predictably, they're also much less likely to know how to avoid unintended pregnancy.

A University of Georgia study concluded "States that prescribe abstinence-only sex education programs in public schools have significantly higher teenage pregnancy and birth rates than states with more comprehensive sex education programs".

So take a page out of your own playbook and 'just say no' to abstinence based sex ed.

wordkyle said...

204 - I also don't believe in an abstinence-only education. However, it is the most effective way to avoid pregnancy and STDs, so it would be foolish and stupid not to promote it.

Your problem is that I'm talking about helping kids learn judgment and self-control. For some reason those attributes offend you.

Anonymous said...

No, it's foolish to promote abstinence as the most effective method, because basing your sex education on abstinence doesn't work. We're back to the swimming metaphor again. The most effective way to avoid drowning is abstinence from water. Problem is it isn't practical and almost never works.

Why do you fear a comprehensive sex education about disease prevention and birth control? They already know about abstinence, right?

wordkyle said...

Your swimming metaphor only works if you tell the children that every single time they go swimming they are swimming in shark-infested waters. They are never, ever, safe while swimming.

The question remains as to why the single best method of preventing pregnancy and STDs is not more effectively taught. Perhaps it's because of the number of adults who tell children to go ahead and have sex anyway. I thought we were trying to teach young girls that they have control of their bodies.

Glad you finally agree with me because sex is exactly like that. STD's never take a day off. You can include abstinence in sex ed. You should probably lead off the class with it, but you shouldn't make it the primary focus of the class because it's been proven time and again to be highly ineffective. It costs us tons of money in the long run to take care of the unwanted pregnancies that are the result of the failed abstinence based classes. You want to save tax dollars, correct?

wordkyle said...

The practice of abstinence has NOT been proven to be ineffective. It is the most effective way to prevent pregnancy and STDs. If there is a lack, it is in the method of teaching PLUS society's encouraging children to go ahead and have sex.

You glaze over the point about the shark-infested waters. There is no safe way to swim in those waters. If a child doesn't have the self control to abstain from sex, then they won't have the self control to find a condom when they go to have the sex you encouraged them to have.
