Prosecutor: Teach sex ed, go to jail!

A Wisconsin district attorney is threatening teachers with criminal charges for teaching sex-ed and following state law:

A Wisconsin prosecutor is warning that teachers who teach the state’s new sex education curriculum could be arrested and charged with contributing to the delinquency of children.

Juneau County District Attorney Scott Southworth told the Wisconsin State Journal that the state’s sex education law, which was signed by Gov. Jim Doyle in February, is a “sick and shameful piece of legislation” that encourages illegal sex among minors. And he sent a letter to five school districts urging them to temporarily drop all sex education classes until the Legislature can repeal the law.

“Forcing our schools to instruct children on how to utilize contraceptives encourages our children to engage in sexual behavior, whether as a victim or an offender,” Southworth wrote in the March 24 letter. “It is akin to teaching children about alcohol use, then instructing them on how to make mixed alcoholic drinks.”

documenting the horror

When James visited town from NZ, there was a rash of pot-luck sort of gatherings at my place. Keith brought something dreadful, something terrible that should not have been named, let alone created… Poutine Pizza, the ultimate in drunk food. Sara, bless her heart and her strong iron stomach, not only ate some, she ate it cold.
