Massachusetts: Anthony (â€œSex-texterâ€) Weiner Would Have Survived There
By: Michael John McCrae
You just have to read the article: â€œSchool Surveys 7th-Graders on Oral Sexâ€ By Todd Starnes, to know how far down into the dregs of indecency the State of Massachusetts has fallen. The first paragraph is statement enough: â€œA middle school in Massachusetts is under fire for requiring children to complete a graphic sex survey — without parental knowledge or consent — that included questions about sexual partners and oral sex.â€
The principal of the school took no responsibility. She pushed off the responsibility to a federal government â€œmandateâ€ to qualify for federal money. The federal government (at least a spokesman for the CDC) claimed no responsibility either: â€œA spokesperson for the CDC denied any involvement in the Fitchburg sex survey. The CDC said only seven states and six urban districts include sexual identity questions on their YRBS surveys â€“ and the questions are optional.â€ The term â€œoptionalâ€ was denied by the school principal.
The survey was graphic; asking students specifically if they engaged in (Bill Clinton-like) â€œoral sexâ€ and asking what types of â€œcontraceptionâ€ they used while engaging in sex. It is unclear if there were questions that included preferred brands of cigars, but are any of these questions appropriate for 13-14 year old middle school students? I suppose only in Massachusetts middle schools.
It was Massachusetts middle schools that approved the â€œVagina Monologuesâ€ as an appropriate school play. â€œWest Side Storyâ€ was considered insensitive to Puerto Ricans. In Massachusetts I suppose everyone can relate to and sympathize with a vagina. In case youâ€™ve forgotten, here is a portion of a report from the â€œDaily Hampshire Gazetteâ€ (Jan 15, 2004) by Michal Lumsden:
â€œAMHERST – Support for next month’s student production of ”The Vagina Monologues” outweighed dissent among members of the community atâ€¦ Amherst-Pelham Regional School Committee meetingâ€¦Written by Eve Ensler, ”The Vagina Monologues” is a series of short scenes based on her interviews with more than 200 women around the globe. The playâ€¦will culminate a week of events educating students and faculty about women’s health and reproductive rights, as well as violence against women.â€
â€œSchool and community groups around the country are performing the play as part of a nationwide women’s awareness day called V-Day. The V-Day organization is giving free rights to the play for groups that perform itâ€¦and give a portion of proceeds to a women’s charity.â€
So â€œThe Vagina Monologuesâ€ found its way into Massachusetts school auditoriums under the guise of supporting â€œV-dayâ€; a womanâ€™s organization dedicated to stopping violence against women. Now, there is nothing wrong with any charity opposed to violence against women but with a more sincere effort by parents to raise their own children to be morally righteous and loving; having â€œvaginaâ€ reminders circulating the public schools might not be necessary.
But again, this is Massachusetts weâ€™re talking about; the land that gave us Harvard University and its many elitist liberals who are now turning the country into a third-world power. In fact, Harvard began leading the way in by introducing its own pornographic magazine with an attending web site. You could â€œGoogleâ€ the â€œCrimson Staffâ€ article by Jamison A. Hill entitled: â€œItâ€™s baaaack! Harvard Porn Mag Hits the (Virtual) Newsstandsâ€.
It was the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court that ruled the â€œstateâ€™s ban on same-sex marriageâ€¦unconstitutionalâ€ in November of 2003. When the state legislature failed to act on making same-sex marriage the law of the land in Massachusetts, the court forced its will on the legislature and now the state is finding it cannot adequately deal with the problem of same-sex divorce as to which partner gets the cats or the kids. For some of that background you might read the â€œWashington Postâ€ article by Dafna Linzer entitled: â€œSame-Sex Divorce Challenges the Legal Systemâ€. You might look that article up if for no other reason than this quote: “One of the benefits of marriage is divorce,” said Joyce Kauffman, a Boston divorce lawyer who has handled a dozen same-sex divorce cases. “But for a lot of couples, that benefit is very complicated and very costly in ways that heterosexual couples would never have to experience.”
â€œOne of the benefits of marriage is divorce.â€ â€œOne of the benefits of marriage is divorce.â€ One of the benefitsâ€¦? Iâ€™m still thinking on that one folks.
Too, Massachusetts gives us Senator John Kerry (D-MA) and Congressman Barney Frank (D-MA); both of who have given us lots of laughs over their tenure in Congress. Senator Kerry loves to call members of the United States military â€œbaby killersâ€ while touting his own unimpressive Vietnam War record of writing his own medal citations and lying about his war experiences in Cambodia. Congressman Frank (whom I affectionately refer to as â€œBarneybob Squarefrankâ€) champions the repeal of â€œDonâ€™t Ask, Donâ€™t Tellâ€ between his staunch defense against investigations into the fraud, waste and abuse of the American economy by Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac.
Citing his concerns as recently as June 7th of this year Pete Kasperowicz in: â€œBarney Frank asks Obama to reject DoD bill with ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ provisionsâ€ reported: â€œRep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) has asked President Obama to veto the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) if it contains language that delays the end of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy that prohibits gay service members from openly declaring their sexuality.â€
I wonder what Congressman Frank might say should Senator Kerry start referring to gay soldiers as â€œbaby killersâ€?
Now, it was a year ago this month that Jill Stanek reported on a Massachusetts plan to distribute condoms to children as young as age six. Her June 23rd, 2010 article: â€œPublic school sex ed gone wild: condoms for 1st graders; stuffed animal sexâ€ subtitled: â€œIn a world gone mad the solution to our 50-year grossly failed social experiment of comprehensive sex and widespread contraception distribution is to up the ante.â€
â€œ… the Provincetown, MA, public school system [is] launching a program… to distribute condoms to kids as young as 6, specifically overriding parental involvement. According to NYDailyNews.com on June 22: â€œ[T]he school committee has unanimously adopted a condom distribution policy beginning as early as first grade….The committee also directed school leaders not to honor demands from parents who object to their kids receiving protection….â€
So with all that sex in the Massachusetts Public School System, how is that working out for the state as far as STD, rates of infection, AIDS/HIV infection rates and rates for Teen pregnancy?
From AIDS Action Committee Report entitled: â€œHIV/AIDS Epidemic in Massachusettsâ€
â€œHIV/AIDS Trends from 2000 to 2009: â€œEvery year, there are more people living with HIV/AIDS in Massachusetts. In the past ten years, the number of people living with HIV/AIDS has increased annually as new HIV infection diagnoses exceeded the number of deaths among people reported with HIV/AIDS. From 2000 to 2009, the number of people living with HIV/AIDS increased by 35%.â€
Whatever Massachusetts is doing they are not doing it well if the intention was to bring down the rates of infection among its population. The same holds true for teen pregnancy. From two reports only two years apart come these statistics:
â€œIn 2006, there were 4,724 births to mothers aged 15â€“19 years in Massachusetts, a birth rate of 21 per 1,000 females in that age group. Significant disparities exist in birth rates for Massachusetts youth by race and Hispanic origin. In 2006, the non-Hispanic black teen birth rate was nearly three times higher than the white teen birth rate, and the Hispanic teen birth rate was nearly six times higher. In 2004 alone, preventing teen childbearing in Massachusetts would have saved tax payers an estimated $109 million.â€
And from: â€œSTATE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY EDUCATION PROGRAM (PREP), MASSACHUSETTS DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTHâ€: Need Statement: The Massachusetts 2008 teen birth rates indicate that significant racial, ethnic and geographical disparities persist, although the overall teen birth rate is low (20.1 births per 1,000 females ages 15-19). Hispanic teens had almost six times and black teens almost three times the birth rate of white teens (66.7 for Hispanic teens, 32.3 for black teens, and 11.7 for white teens).1 In 2009, 12.4% of Hispanic, 8.4% of black, and 3.7% of white MA high school students reported ever having been or gotten someone pregnant.2 This project will target Hispanic and other minority youth, homeless youth, and other marginalized youth populations in those communities with the largest disparities.
Between the 2006 report and the 2008 report there was only a .9 percent drop in the teenage pregnancy rates statewide. This was in conjunction with a higher overall rate of STD infections statewide for all age groups. So perhaps they are protecting a little more against pregnancy, but they are still not caring to adequately protect against Chlamydia, syphilis and other STDâ€™s.
Sadly, what is happening in Massachusetts is happening nationwide. Morality has taken huge hits in all the states since prayer, bible reading, God and just general moral values were stripped from public schools. Lessons in morality have been replaced with teachingâ€™s in Islam (and how to treat women as cattle, have multiple wives and kill them â€œhonorablyâ€ if they mess around on you), homosexuality as a wonderfully explicit alternative to the God designed model of one man with one woman, explicit sex education and condom distribution as early as 6 years old and the joys of multiculturalism and diversity in opposition to American history, culture and national assimilation as un-hyphenated Americans.
The Massachusetts solution to these problems is the development of more programs requiring more taxpayer money and much less parental involvement. Sex surveys from seventh graders are to help point the direction of the new programs. My solution would be quite simple. Get all that sexual garbage out of the public schools and go back to teaching reading, writing, arithmetic, science and American History! Let the parents tell their child about the birds and the bees when they believe it is time to do that. Stop shoving sex into minds too young to grasp adult concepts. Let children be children and fire every teacher who attempts to take sexual advantage of any child. Get rid of any/all homosexual materials from curricula and public school libraries. If children need to learn about homosexuality, the homosexual community can develop and run their own special interest academies and troll for tuition paying students like any other private academy. The homosexual community should not be requesting their special interest be paramount over any other special interest or minority group.
