    Just saw this on the news....................

    U.S. News - New Tennessee law aims to curb teaching 'gateway sexual activity'

    Wow......................I guess some people will go to pretty far lengths to legislate morality.

    Matter of fact, under this law, wouldn't a child who is being sexually molested at home be forbidden from talking to a teacher about it?

    But still...............under this law, teachers are not allowed to talk about genital touching, so wouldn't that make it just that much harder for a child to tell a teacher that they're being molested at home?

    No, but under this law, if a child IS fondled by a pedophile, they won't be able to tell their teachers, and what if it's a parent doing the molestation?

    This is what it’s really all about: the fear of facts and the truth and the desire to keep children ignorant and vulnerable.

    It's a state law. States can do that. And it's fine with me.
