A high school science teacher in Idaho is under investigation by the state's professional standards commission because he reportedly used the word "vagina" during a biology lesson.

What about dick or rod or Johnson?

[T]here are a couple people in the community that are trying to get Mr. McDaniel fired for teaching the reproductive system, climate change, and several other science subjects,"

i've often wondered why so many conservative christians seem afraid of the facts concerning women's biological functions.  I often wonder if they just find biology a distasteful subject in general or if they're all secretly closet homosexuals...

Sure, sure.  A state named IdaHo has a problem with "vagina".

If he was talking about a pussy, or any other slang, fine. But vagina is an anatomy term. It's absolutely ridiculous that parents should be upset. These are probably the same parents who lobby for abstinence-only sex ex and then wonder why their daughters end up knocked up with herpes. It's because they DIDN'T KNOW ANY BETTER.

I just moved to South Dakota.

Guys in bars here are constantly using "vagina" to refer to, well, vagina.  It's weird.  Is this a midwest/upper midwest thing? Anywhere else I've lived there's lots of slang thrown around.  Here it's all vagina, all the time.

10th grade, I'm sorry but your precious little snow flakes already know what a vagina is and how many fingers they can fit in there w/o drawing the attention of the from the other kids on the bus.

So, some male HS teacher knows about female Idaho?

Hawking doesn't even have a clue about that mystery, and he has electric devices at his disposal.

farkingismybusiness: The word itself makes some men uncomfortable. Vagina.

Yes, they don't like hearing it and find it difficult to say, whereas without batting an eye a man will refer to his dick or his rod or his... Johnson.

"But I give every student the option not attend this class when I teach on the reproductive system if they don't feel comfortable with the material."

Fine, but those students will not be issued with reproductive licenses.

Tim McDaniel, who teaches 10th grade science at Dietrich School

2013-03-27 09:57:47 PM  
Click through to the source article; it gets weirder as they dig for more allegations.  For example,

the commission is also investigating a complaint that
accuses him of using school property to promote a political candidate. The
complaint was because he showed the climate change film "An Inconvenient Truth,"
also in his science class.

Al Gore in 2016?  Really???

While McDaniel feels confident he won't be fired, he said he doesn't think it's
fair if he has to sign a letter of reprimand.

"I've done nothing wrong," he said. "I told them I won't sign it."

Good for him!

Some parts of Idaho are pretty mormon. This must be one of them.

66% of the county's churchgoers, according to the article. Despite their polygamist history, they have a thing for sexual repression. Somebody needs to tell these people it's no longer the 19th century.

From the linked article, it sounds like  witch hunt.  From the actual new article it's based on, there's a lot more accusations to this.

The teacher is a 10th grade biology teacher, however he is also apparently using the biology class to teach sex ed and climate change.  These aren't bad topics, but they don't seem to be typical for high school biology.  Taking time off of teaching to watch movies on global warming and showing pictures of STDs aren't the purpose of the class.  Sex ed is a touchy subject for some, it often requires parental permission to teach.  He seems to be covering parts of it in biology class without permission.

He's also accused of making inappropriate jokes and using language in front of students, as well as sharing student information without permission.  That last one seems very serious.

Using proper anatomical terms to teach is fine, it's much better than trying to teach with innuendo.  Unfortunately, if that was not what he was supposed to teach, it's a problem.  I do not know what the curriculum he teaches is, and if the textbook does go into detail on these topics, then it makes sense.  From the allegations, this doesn't seem to be the case.  I want to stick up for this teacher, but all of the allegations need addressed.

seriously, with what we put teachers through who the eff wants to educate the poor children anymore? kids are bad enough and then we have their lunatic parents getting either overly, unnecessarily involved or they are too busy smoking crack in some abandoned shed. all of the people i know that teach are dick brained idiots. good luck kids, better off learning on the streets.... at least then you will now the basics to get a job in sales.

Who can blame them? Once those young women learn how their bodies work the next thing you know they'll want to control them.

On the contrary, I can think of few things that are more comfortable.
