‘SLUT-SHAMING’

Some parents and students at two public high schools in West Virginia are up in arms over a sex speech that one student called “slut-shaming.”
I think that Sex Education is a parent's job. A while back, I sat my boys down and had a good conversation with both of them. I continue to discuss the subject with them. It is not the role of the high school or the middle school. 
Until our schools are teaching the kids the basics, until we have kids reading at or above grade level, until they can do math as well as every other country, I don't want the schools teaching anything else. Kids need to be able to read, write, subtract, divide, and add before they move on to family multiplication.

Over in West Virginia, they had an assembly with  Pam Stenzel. She is a pro abstinence speaker, who discusses the drawbacks of pre-marital sex. 


George Washington student Katelyn Campbell saying she felt Stenzel’s speech was meant to “scare students into abstaining from sex.” “Stenzel’s overall attitude was that any type of sex will guarantee the contraction of an STD or an unwanted pregnancy,” Campbell said.
Principal George Aulenbacher said. “The only way to guarantee safety is abstinence. Sometimes, that can be a touchy topic, but I was not offended by her. The intent was to educate and talk to kids about making good decisions.”
“My goal today is that no one will be able to leave this place and ever again have to say to a physician to a counselor to your future husband or wife ‘well nobody told me,’” Stenzel said in a speech posted on YouTube.
Stenzel goes on to say that if you have sex outside of a single monogamous relationship “you will pay.”
“No one has had sex with more than one person and not paid,” Stenzel said.
