    DA: sex ed could get teachers arrested

    The latest rightwing legal thought in action:

    DA to teachers: New sex ed course could get you arrested

    A district attorney in Juneau County, Wisconsin, warned teachers in a memo sent to schools that if they teach the new sexual education curriculum mandated under state law, they could be arrested for contributing to the delinquency of a child.

    Because the law requires teachers to instruct children not only about contraceptives but about how to use them, Juneau County District Attorney Scott Southworth said, schools are forced to encourage students to "engage in sexual behavior, whether as a victim or an offender."

    And since minors can't legally have sex in Wisconsin, teachers would essentially be endorsing the behavior and could be held liable, Southworth said in the letter.

    Memo to these people: Teenagers are going to have sex regardless of whether they have sex ed or not. Might as well teach them how to be safe.

    Memo to DA allowing political pandering to hinder his ability to carry out justice: if the state mandates it, then you have no ability to charge a crime until the mandate is overturned.

    **** off.

    I do not send my kids to school to learn how to roll a condom on their/his penis.

    What's next? How to give a blow job without scraping your teeth and causing a potential infection?

    Gimme a break. School was not meant for this. American children by and large are just plain stupid. I interview people regularly that just leave me shaking my head about how ridiculously uneducated they are at such an advanced age. THAT is the bigger problem.

    But you do send your kids to school to learn biology which includes sexual hygeine. Now you may have an arbitrary morality that dictates that your kids should not know how to put a condom on but that does not grant you the right to enforce that arbitrary morality on all the other kids in the class and deny them the lesson. This is a boundary and a right you give up by pooling your kids with all the others in the public education system.

    Not even close to the same thing and an appeal to the absurd does not score any points for your cause.

    And irrelevant to this particular discussion.

    I don't think the Wisconsin law calls for that. Let's stick to reality.

    Yes, when you fail to teach them the skills they need in life, they are uneducated.
