Mississippi has some of the highest teen pregnancy rates. Along with that they have some of the worst sexual education programs. There is Absence Only and Absence Plus. Which about the same just one has more "facts."
In one of these sex education classes students are given a Peppermint Pattie not to eat but to pass around. In this the ladies are to learn that as they have more sexual partners they are becoming dirty and are no longer valuable. No one will want to eat -date or marry- them if they have sex. Essentially teaching girls that they are only to be valued for their hymen. A thing that some girls don't have in the first place.
This style of "teaching" is not taught to the boys. The boys are not shown how as they have more and more sexual partners that they can become "dirty" like the girls. You can pass around a sausage and the same thing will happen that no one will want to eat that either. The people in charge here forget that this is food and not humans. You don't eat people. (You people know what I mean by that!)
This devaluing of women in this is very sad. To make it worse the mothers who speak out against this "sex education" are being called "sex moms" by people around the Oxford area. Simply adding to the slut shaming going on. Schools are not there to shame it's there to teach. Personal opinions by teachers are not supposed to be allowed to be taught as fact. And no there isn't a pass for "professionals" who come in to share their personal opinion.
Boys are just as sexually active as girls. Girls are just as sexually active as boys. There isn't a more innocent group. Women are not more slutty than men are. Men are not more slutty than women are. Besides is women can't have sex but men can why the hell is homosexuality bad? What are you doing Mississippi? Listen to the "sex moms" they aren't wrong here. Learn to not insult people for doing the most natural thing possible. Show them how to do it and how to do it safely. That's the whole point of sexual education.
