Since the expulsion of Shreve, Chmelik, and Delauter from our fine county government, we’ve been taking it a bit easy. We’ve also been able to relax during this year’s BOE election, because guess what? Cindy isn’t running! (Side note: We have a pretty great slate of people running this year!) Instead she’s decided to buy (how much could we get for the Yokel?) and run The Tentacle. Mostly it’s been the same tripe we’ve been used to seeing in the Noodlely Appendage….until today. BEHOLD:
She’s still harassing FCPS with her multiple PIA requests, so much so that we’ve speculated they had to hire the new ombuds just to deal with her! You can read the original post here, but we are going to break it down for ya!
She begins by telling us that an 8th grade parent contacted her regarding the FCPS sex education curriculum. We couldn’t help but wonder why the parent wouldn’t address these concerns with the teacher or administration, but alas Cindy it is. Apparently, the story goes that Cindy went to inspect the props used in the curriculum and had some concerns about their appearance:
I was bothered that the penis prop is more toy like, while the vagina prop is very clinical. Is the “toy” design to make the student feel comfortable handling it? Is that comfort supposed to transfer over into real life?
Now we are really all left to grapple with some terrible musings, such as: what kind of phallus is she asking for? She has more issues:
There are vaginal condoms and dental dams in the “kit”. Based on that I assume there are demonstrations on their use as well? If not, why not? Not that I believe any of it should be taught by a school teacher, but it’s a legitimate question. Is FCPS demonstrating how to use vaginal condoms and dental dams? Isn’t that teaching “how” to have sex?
The use of quotes is puzzling here. Is the kit not real? What is the alternative meaning of how? Anyhoo, we did everyone’s homework for them and found the essential curriculum for 8th grade health class (which, by the way requires a permission slip and allows for parents to preview the material):
Who is even against young people having all the information they need to make informed decisions about their health? Many parents won’t talk to their kids about these issues, and if you believe abstinence programs work, there’s a ton of research that you are on the wrong side of that coin.
If her article ended there we wouldn’t have given it a second thought. But we haven’t gotten to the anal connection in the title yet!
While we wait, more children are being presented information on casual acceptance of sexual practices taught by who? Was the substitute teacher in the Thomas Johnson pornography allegation incident ever in a classroom with a wooden penis in his hand demonstrating and describing how to put on a condom? Talking about anal sex?
HOLY CRACKER ON A MACARONI! She goes from not liking the toy like appearance of a fake penis in an 8th grade classroom to postulating that a long term substitute (who is under investigation for showing a sexually explicit video to students) in a high school classroom is fondling a wooden penis while describing anal sex. She made all of that up! When are you people going to give her lies the outrage they deserve?
Part II is apparently on the docket for tomorrow. You are in our thoughts FCPS.
