    OH THE HORROR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    VAGINA. Could PENIS be far behind?

    Should she have used "Front Butt"? "Hoo hah"?

    Hevaen forbid they teach Mormon girls how to actually use one.

    That said, I can't help but notice this is a sterling example of what's wrong with media today. "Journalists" today look at a story and immedietely seek to find the way to present it that is most polarizing, most controversial, most sensational, or perhaps most in line with a particular agenda instead of looking at the facts of a story and attempting to put the most relevant and serious portions forward in a way that people can be made aware.

    In this particular instance, I would think the issue of students confidential files being shown to sources without a need to know would be the FAR more important take away from this story. And yet that little snippet is kept as a throw away near the very end because the notion of "OMG! Parents mad that teacher said vagina" is likely to invoke far more page hits and controversy.
    It's all about grabbing attention of the reader. Grabbing attention = money made.

    Then why post it here?

    I mean, what's the point? Every time someone posts a sensationalist story to DP, people come in and gawk, make their polarized remarks, and then leave. It's not the best for generating discussion.

    There is always inanity everywhere. Humanity is inanity, lol.

    My point is: why focus on it?

    There are a million good and bad things happening in the world every day and the media always focused on the bad. The wolf that wins is the one you feed.

    Ahhh, terrorist-godwining the thread.

    The "American Taliban" shtick is ridiculous, old, and frankly insulting to the realities of what occured under that regime in Afghanistan.

    I posted it here for discussion.
    The outlet that wrote the story did it to generate $$
