FTFA: Robert King, a parent who complained to the district and the Illinois Family Institute back in October, said his son asked to be excused from the activity but was denied.

"I am not a prudish person and I have no problem with scholastically based sex education," King said. "But the teacher used such a cavalier presentation method, and forced a student to participate when he requested to abstain from it. It is disrespectful to women and removes modesty about the reproductive parts."


Well duh. If the little farker could just get off class by saying "I don't feel like doing this" he'd just skip his education. Kids don't want to go to school, but without going, they'll grow up lacking plenty of basic knowledge.

Also, how the hell are you going to talk about female reproductive organs without removing the modesty about the reproductive parts in the first place?

/Dumb people will be dumb.

"It is overtly misrepresentative of the activity in class," said Jeff Puma, spokesman for Crystal Lake High School District 155. "There was no music, no song and no movement around the class. The name that the report gave it is a nickname that the students have called it. It is not the name the teacher gave it."

Oh snapper!

It's nice that the first sentence of TFA lets me know not to give a shiat.

You want to teach children about sex?

You farking pedo pervert sicko.

Everyone knows that sex and nudity is dirty and wrong. Knowledge is sin. Kids and teens should just not have sex until they are married and all these problems would be solved.

I have a feeling this group's opposition has less to do with a vagina dance and more to do with a vagina.

Everyone knows that a proper sex education curriculum uses The Humpty Dance instead.

Mr. Mak admits that he did not consult a podiatrist in making the mold. Instead, his research consisted of speaking with friends and customers. "I have no interest in going into the technical aspects of making a shoe,"

Versus

"We basically developed a new last [the mold on which a shoe is built] that is tailor-made for the Asian foot," says Mr. Mak. "We're trying to make a four-inch [10-centimeter] heel more comfortable."


I love this dude. "Im making a new shoe. I have no interest in how that works"

Getting your first greenlight lies somewhere on the spectrum between getting to first base and taking your first hit of meth. So congrats, but be careful.

It could have been worse. Instead of the Hokey Pokey it could have been set to Wham's "Wake Me Up Before You Gogo."

just saying.Zembla: FTFA: .

"I am not a prudish person and ... removes modesty about the reproductive parts."

I would propose that he actually is a prudish person! However, it's in print so I want to believe him.

I remember in high school sex-ed/health class,I think it was freshman year. We had one girls parents, decided that they would not let their daughter attend the class due to moral objections. They said that it should be taught at home and with their morals and religious beliefs. Small town turned into a bit of a debate....

Give you 3 guesses as to who the first girl to get knocked up was and the first 2 don't count.

The health teacher, didn't openly come out and claim victory. But, did smirk when the topic came up.

You put your peeeenissss in, you take your penis out, you put your peeennnniiiis in and you shake it all about, you will it up with semen and you turn yourself around, that's what it's all about!
 
2011-01-13 12:07:15 PM
I'm fine with sex-ed in schools, but the Hokey Pokey? Really??

/you put the penis in

You know how we all know you aint gotten to dannce with a vagi in a while?

Go on guess.....
 
2011-01-13 12:08:05 PM
I didn't realize students are having so much trouble paying attention in sex ed these days that they need to have the teacher put on a performance for them. Maybe if they called it a pussy instead of a vagina they wouldn't have the attention deficit problem.

(I'm not offended or bothered, just wondering what's wrong with these chillens)

If kids don't know how the female reproductive system works by their sophmore year and it takes singing about the parts to the tune of "hokey pokey" then the biggest problem isn't the damn class. Seriously, my 10 y/o knows how that shiat works and we didn't use a stupid dance. We used the proper methods...puppets and old issues of Hustler.

The article states the dance, which the group said involved pointing to and singing about reproductive parts while prancing around the room, was set to the tune of the Hokey Pokey.
[snip]
said Jeff Puma, spokesman for Crystal Lake High School District 155. "There was no music, no song and no movement around the class. The name that the report gave it is a nickname that the students have called it. It is not the name the teacher gave it."


Yea, don't let facts get in the way... nice example you are setting there, Illinois Family Institute. Great values there.

So was there a dance or not?

A Crystal Lake high school health teacher's activity designed to teach sophomore students how the female reproductive system works has caught the ire of a conservative religious group.

Well duh! Why would they want people to learn anything? That doesn't advance their agenda.

Well it's not like they can teach it real time. Kids won't learn anything from a lesson only 30 seconds long.

Is that anything like one of those Purity Balls? 'Cause that's some creepy shiat...

The students should really be watching an educational video about vaginas.

Can you dance the Vagina Dance alone?

It's alright. They'll figure it out when they're all camp counselors.

"It is a mnemonic device to help students memorize parts of the anatomy and function," Kubelka said.

So Vagina Dancer is a mnemonic device...

OOH! OOH! MISTER CARTER! I know what the C stands for!
 
2011-01-13 12:15:46 PM
Shouldn't this be done to the tune of the Humpty Dance, "The Vagina dance is your chance to do the vag"

Not sure what Sex Ed has to do with the fact that someone got pregnant, prompting smirks. All Sex Ed should be about is HOW people get pregnant not whether its right to become pregnant.

Also, if a kid doenst want to do a dumb dance then let him stay seated. I see lots of comments here about the idea he wanted a paid vacation from school that day. Infact his Dad even said the Sex Ed was fine; but, to FORCE someone to participate in an activity while not necesarily asking to be allowed to leave school grounds or leave the class is stupid.

You might be able to.

I cannot.

//was going to post a Billy Idol "Dancing with myself" reference.
