I guarantee you that if I a male teacher call enough female students sweetie, eventually there would be some type of accusation.

It is a stupid choice of words.

Would it bother you to be called sweetie and pressured into tasting a flavored condom in front of the rest of the class? It would certainly bother me.

If that is indeed what he said, he should have chose better wording. Other than that there is nothing wrong with this in sex education class. Condoms do still have a stigma. You can educate, teach about abstinence, you can do everything you can short of tying your children up in the basement till they're 18 and still there are those that will have sex. Ignoring this fact will only cause your teenagers harm. This does not make anyone a pervert.

If I was ignoring that fact, I'd be totally against sex ed. I think sex ed is good when it teaches the risks of being sexually active and benefits of abstinence. There needs to be a piece of mind for everybody, and those who will have sex anyways need to know what they're getting into.

If indeed.

It's so easy to focus on the parts of the article that you want to believe.

the perverts are the ones who preach abstinence at the expense of protection, and then blame teenagers when they wind up pregnant or crawling with STDs.

i don't know what i'd do without condoms. i'm so thankful that i was taught how to use them *properly* -- i'd imagine that most condom failure comes from improper usage due to ignorance (or being blind drunk).

I didn't claim that bringing condoms in a classroom made anyone a pervert. I do however feel that it's perverted to force a woman into a sexual act, and this teacher wasn't far at all from crossing that line.

Even in the article, there's no evidence that that happened.

When I was in 8th grade my male chemistry teacher called me 'motor mouth' for the entire school year because I whispered the page number to the new girl in class. It was annoying but I don't remember whining about it to my parents, but this was pre-PC days. I grew up in the south where 'sweetie' is freely tossed around. It isn't necessarily a smarmy thing for a male teacher to say to a female teen student; it could be, but isn't necessarily. It think it all depends on the context, intonation, and the relationship already established between the teacher and the student. In this case, we don't know. But based on what's given in the article, there is nothing there that to me communicates any kind of force, humiliation, mocking or inappropriate behavior. I think being called motor mouth is much worse, but that's just me.

I didn't claim it was a forced sexual act, but I did say that it wasn't far from it. Personally, I'd want to vomit if a teacher tried pressuring me into licking a flavored condom in front of everyone. That would pretty humiliating for some people, believe it or not.

You're still assuming that you know that's what happened.

y treating sex so lightly I don't believe they're helping anyone.

And I hate the misconception that condoms make sex "safe". Yeah they help, but sometimes not enough. I'd know.

If this article is truthful, I believe there's reason to debate it. Nobody can trust the news entirely, it's often exaggerated, but in a cold world like we live in now, I believe bad things happen.
