    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    However, as far as sex ed and teens, I think the parents should know exactly what is being taught and be supplied with all the material. It should be discussed in the home too and not just left to the so called "professional" sex educators.
    Morality, yes. Education... no. Parents do not have the information or material to do so.

    Which is really ****ed up if you think about it. A kid with two moms comes in and says so, then the teacher tells the kid he can't talk about it in school, and thus making him feel weird, sad, angry, etc that he can't talk about his parents, or have his parents participate in school functions like the other kids parents would.

    as near as i can tell, all it does is actively restrict the schoolteachers. no teaching your own version (or some superintendents' version) of sex ed for elementary students; no distribution of "materials" which you will expect the students to "discuss in class and demonstrate achieved learning objectives" etc.

    which is just fine with me - i will handle teaching my kids about life. you teach them about geometry. that's what i pay you to do.

    Truthfully, the people in the Tennessee Legislature are really stupid. This has practically no chance of passing, and if it does, it will get struck down by the courts, most likely on 1st Amendment grounds. If they REALLY wanted to accomplish what they seem to want to accomplish, what they should have done is allowed the Tennessee Department of Education alter the curriculum to reflect these changes. By doing so, they bypass the creation of a government law, doing an end run around the 1st Amendment. The Supreme Court has often upheld situations where free speech in schools has been limited. These guys think they were cute, but actually, they were pretty stupid.

    AN ACT to amend Tennessee Code Annotated, Title 49,
    Chapter 6, Part 10, relative to education.
    BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE:
    SECTION 1. Tennessee Code Annotated, Section 49-6-1005, is amended by adding
    the following as new subsection (c) and by relettering the existing subsection (c) accordingly:
    (c)
    (1) The general assembly recognizes the sensitivity of particular subjects
    that are best explained and discussed in the home. Human sexuality is a
    complex subject with societal, scientific, psychological, and historical
    implications; those implications are best understood by children with sufficient
    maturity to grasp their complexity.
    (2) Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, no public elementary or
    middle school shall provide any instruction or material that discusses sexual
    orientation other than heterosexuality.
    SECTION 2. This act shall take effect upon becoming a law, the public welfare requiring
    So it can be brought up, but it can't be discussed in the class room. A teacher cannot legally say anything about the issue, and seems a discussion cannot be allowed even among the peers.

    So - unless you're past 8th grade you're not mature enough to understand that some girls kiss girls and like it, and that some dudes cornhole each other.

    Ya can't protect your children from reality forever parents - if they can facebook they can google some porn, including lesbian porn.

    good point. if we left the teaching of sexuality to just any ole body, we could end up with all manner of things. who knows what would or wouldn't go on.

    that's why I applaud Tennessee here. we need to make sure that the schools hire decent, upstanding, professionals to come in and give the students their belief system as regards sexuality. we can walk the kids through a "hell house" for our abortion lesson, explain how women are born to be subservient, and describe how all gay men are probably also child-rapists. this is all vital information that these kids need to know in order to live their lives as healthy and morally-secure born-agains.

    and when people like that san-fransisco-nancy-pelosi-lovin Your Star complain that what we are exposing their children to is utterly offensive and contrary to what they want their child learning, we'll just calmly explain that idiotic and sinful ideals like yours are precisely why we need the schools to handle raising your child for you... as your disagreement with us is all the proof we need that you are too incompetent to handle discussing this kind of thing with them.


    so you see, it all works
