‘Gateway sexual activity’

by Susie

Fundie Christians are, indeed, a bunch of control freaks. And much like their Middle Eastern sharia-loving counterparts, they won’t be happy until marriages are arranged by parents without the parties concerned actually even meeting before the ceremony. I suppose this law, if passed, will encourage hoards of flashlight-carrying volunteer Sex Police patrolling the local lovers’ lanes.

But really, it’s that they just can’t bear the thought of someone having unpunished fun somewhere:

MEMPHIS, TN – (WMC-TV) – Tennessee senators approved an update to the state’s abstinence-based sex education law that includes warnings against “gateway sexual activity.”

In a new family life instructions bill, holding hands and kissing could be considered gateways to sex. Planned Parenthood said that allowing state government to define local sex education curriculum could backfire.

According to a 2009 Youth Risk Behavior Study, 61 percent of Memphis City high school students and 27 percent of middle school students have had sex. That’s higher than the national average.

Planned Parenthood said these numbers are why a new sex education bill promoting abstinence is not realistic.

“If the state of Tennessee gets to create the curriculum, it has to create something that umbrella reflects everyone,” said Planned Parenthood Director of Education Elokin CaPese.

Tennessee House Bill 3621 and Senate Bill 3310 are currently up for debate.

In the bill, a uniformed policy on sex education is defined with terms like “gateway sexual activity.” Also listed are statewide instructions on how to teach family life curriculum.

[…] If an instructor goes beyond the curriculum, the bill gives parents more legal rights, stating, “The parent or legal guardian shall have a cause of action against the instructor or organization for actual damages.”

  1. A few thoughts:
    1) kissing and holding hands ARE “gateway sexual activity” if you want to get down to it. You don’t go stampeding straight for the clitoris. Any gentleman knows you start with holding hands and a kiss.

    2) It’s the term “gateway”, which, from it’s use in the drug war, suggests that sexual activity is something to be avoided.

    3) these people have the most hilarious cognitive dissonance. They love babies -oh how they love babies, and fetuses even more so- but they HATE HATE HATE how babies are made. If they had their way, babies would be produced without all the icky fucking.

  2. I am rolling on the ground laughing! These dipshit Puritans are about to pass an Act authorizing a wrongful birth case against a teacher for departing from their communist abstinance curriculum. Don’t fool with Sharia laws if you can’t read.

  3. These sanctorumonius clowns are not against fucking when they do it, they are just against other people fucking.

  4. Funny but false. The bit about kissing is the original author (some local news site) imagining what could be considered gateway activity.
