After the abomination that is "50 Shades" real education in S&M is necessary before someone loses an eye.

geek_mars: If you're too stupid to understand that education people about a thing is not the same as promoting a thing, you should never publish anything again, ever.


Exactly this ^^^^

Education about sex is not promoting sex.

Education about drugs is not promoting drugs.

Education allows for young adults to make informed decisions.

People who are against giving young people honest, clear answers are scum of the earth who should burn forever in their fictional hell.

In other news, CNSnews supports BDSM sex to teenagers by pointing out where they can get BDSM education.

FTFA: CNSNews.com called PPNNE president and CEO Meagan Gallagher and Dr. Donna Burkett, the group's medical director, numerous times over the course of three days to ask why the group thought it was appropriate for a tax-funded organization to promote bondage and sadomasochism to teenagers. A staff member later confirmed that Gallagher received the messages.

When my history teacher educated me about the Holocaust, he wasn't promoting the idea of committing genocide, and when Nancy Reagan (Just Say No!) educated our nation's young people about the dangers of drugs, she wasn't promoting drug abuse.

Seriously though, if you're into BDSM you're best off being a gay man. The sexual spectrum for use heteros is monochrome... and dull, dull gray. Promoting non-vanilla sex to women of any age is akin to trying to sell fresh dog crap to a germaphobe.

Not sure if you're trolling, being sarcastic or kind of a sexist a-hole, but in my experience as a woman with great 'enthusiasm' for D/s, it's been quite a trial to find any kind of straight man to participate fully.

AugieDoggyDaddy: I think that Planned Parenthood should provide medically sound information. About prevention of unwanted pregnancies, (which is better than abortion), prevention of STDs. Rape prevention and stuff.


Teenagers have questions. They can get answers from their friends or random opinions from the web ... or they can get correct information from trained professionals posting at a trusted source.

Take a look at Fart Machines post. What kind of medically sound information could PP provide for whatever that is.

How about an explanation of the psychology behind why people cos-play or choose to be submissive, etc. Information is not evil ... people who lie to children in an attempt to control and manipulate them are evil.

Agent Nick Fury: Neondistraction: geek_mars: when Nancy Reagan (Just Say No!) educated our nation's young people about the dangers of drugs, she wasn't promoting drug abuse.

Well, she wasn't intentionally promoting drug use, however statistics show that the whole D.A.R.E campaign (Just say no! was it's rallying cry) was a total failure and in many instances may have actually encouraged teenagers to try drugs.

Not that it has any bearing on this story.  I just can't help but point out, at every opportunity, what an abject failure our 'war on drugs' has been in every measurable way.

How is LBJ's War on Poverty working out?

You should point that out at every opportunity, too.


What, the War on Poverty that dropped the U.S. poverty rate from more than 22 percent to between 11 and 15 percent, where it has been ever since? The War on Poverty that created Medicare and Medicaid, and made the lives of millions of elderly people better? That War on Poverty? Yeah, that one's going OK. It would have gone a lot better if Nixon hadn't gutted the job training part of it, and Reagan even more, but it's still a rousing success as such wars go.

No. Their stupidity needs to be put on a pedestal to be openly and aggressively ridiculed. Politeness is reserved for people with IQs higher than their shoe size.

Sex education. About bondage and S&M. With taxpayer funds. When they are cutting military pensions.

Liberalism in a nutshell.


Ramping up military personnel levels with no plan for funding said pensions?

Starting entire new branches of government without cutting anything else or raising taxes?

Modern "conservatism" in a nutshell.

"Tax and spend" is more honest than "borrow and spend and whine about the deficit."

I get confused, because usually there are no poor people in America, just lazy bums who stuff their fat faces on our tax dollars. When this "War on Poverty" comes up though, all of a sudden there are poor people suffering terribly all over because this "War" was such a disaster.

AugieDoggyDaddy: Are you talking about BDSM information?  First thing, who gets to decide what is "accurate"?  I don't know anything about BDSM, except that I personally find it creepy.  So I guess that any info I might provide to my nephews or niece would be "inaccurate".
As to who cares who provides the info,  how 'bout the NASA ISS page?
Last, please don't make me copy/paste the PP mission statement.


So what you are suggesting is that a professional organization cannot put out "more correct" information than what a teenager would get if they just google "BDSM"? I shudder to think what google would hit on that.

If the NASA ISS page became the cool place teenagers went for answers to questions they had and if the page had accurate information to answer their questions ... then sure. It would be a ridiculous place to put it but the more importing factor would be that people are getting what they need.

What is your infatuation with the PP mission statement?? It seems to me this bullet explains their actions quite well: "to provide educational programs which enhance understanding of individual and societal implications of human sexuality". Or do you just have a problem in general with a group that values people's personal rights and health?

I've said it before and I'll say it again.  It isn't the kids that can't handle this material, it's their parents that are too immature to discuss these kinds of subjects in a rational and dignified way.  This is what happens when you raise children with sexual shame in a "We don't talk about that sort of thing" culture, they go on to handicap their kids with it too.

cuzsis: Teenagers will believe their friends before that "trained professional" much of the time.

You don't give them enough credit. They know that their friends are full of bull-shiat much the time.

If they have a source that is backed by professionals presenting impartial, medically sound, non-judgmental information it will help a significant portion of them.

AugieDoggyDaddy: It is my belief that PP is not the appropriate venue for BDSM or cos-play education.

Who cares who provides the information as long as it is accurate?? The point is to educate to allow for informed decision making. If a teenager is going to a Planned Parenthood then the subject of sex is already on the table ... let's make sure they clearly understand all aspects including all the different forms of risks. One thing is for sure ... they've already heard all about how fun it is and how adults do it all the time. Ask yourself, what are a teenager's highest priorities? Answer: Having fun and thinking that they are already adults.

AugieDoggyDaddy: Also: How did you change the fonts like that?


I find the italics doesn't differentiate the quoted posts enough so I also select the quoted text and apply the font as well (beside Small on the formatting bar).

The War on Poverty worked well when it was being properly funded.  Then Republicans cut the funding, and then screamed how it was a failure.  Funny that.

Says you. Anyway, I'm more concerned about these "CNSNews" people who are telling teens where to find videos on BDSM:
The "For Teens" page also includes a tab leading directly to the PPNNE website's "A Naked Notion With Laci Green" page and also a tab leading to PPNNE's "Teen Resource Center," which features a link to the YouTube page for "A Naked Notion With Lace Green." ... One of PPNNE's Naked Notion videos--"Getting Kinky (BDSM 101)"--features Green telling teenagers that October is "national kink month" and a good time to talk about bondage and sadomasochism.

Frankly, I don't believe it's right that CNSNews should be telling teens - and possible even small children, or even toddlers! - where to find kinky sex videos. I tried contacting them, but they did not respond to my questions, so that's clearly an admission that they know they're doing something wrong.

Huh?  I mean, while I am flattered that you would say so, I really don't understand why you would say it.

Was it because I called their "educational" video bullshiat because it barely scratched the surface of the topic, let alone even mention the fact that there are more ways than this to get your rocks off and doing some research while keeping an open mind about the possibilities may lead to more fun than you've ever had, not to mention the possibility of finding something that has been truly missing your whole life and you could crawl out of that deep, dark pit of depression and actually be happy for a change?

I think we can all agree that drunk driving is dangerous, not only to the drivers, but all others on the road as well.

Therefore, I think we can all agree that anyone ordering a drink at a bar, restaurant, or sporting event should be required to watch fifteen minutes of "Blood On The Highway" produced in 1969 by the Ohio State Police Department before being allowed to consume that drink.

All in agreement say aye.

Sex is something to be done in the dark for as little time as possible and only for having babies. It's only for those who accept the most boring tedious interpretation of 'love' - basically I'm stuck with you 'cause society said I had to pick 'someone' and you were the most acceptable at the time.

Anything else is a librul abomination.
