Bill would define holding hands, kissing as "gateway sexual activity"

http://www.wmctv.com/story/17353757/bill-would-define-holding-hands-kissing-as-gateway-sexual-activity


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.

"It's not detailed enough in a health-based way," said CaPese.

The bill prohibits teachers from demonstrating gateway sexual activity. CaPese said that would include health education models.

"It makes it very clear that you can't promote contraception," said CaPese.

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."

"They can opt out, and that means that parents already have the power that we want them to have," said CaPese.

The bill goes before the House Education Committee next Tuesday.

WTH? You have got to be kidding. With ALL the stuff the Tn senate should be working on, they are warning about hand holding?? Who are these jokers?
All I can say is, we must have a bunch of pervs in the senate if they think simple hand holding leads to jumping under the sheets each and every time. Geez.
I feel like I've gone back to the Middle Ages. Next they will start making everyone under the age of 25 wear chastity belts.

I wholeheartedly agree with you, it really feels like we're in an alternate reality lately with the goings on in the Tennessee legislature. One where trivial things like holding hands and low hanging pants actually matter in the big scheme of things. I don't get it at all. Are only fringe weirdos bothering to vote in this state? How the hell do some of these clowns like Stacey Campfield get elected?

I have a problem with any government agency dictating moral issues such as this. We don't elect officals to tell us how to live, what to wear, or what religion we must practice. And "family life instructions," should be left up to the parents of the family, not the TN senate. And what the heck is 'gateway sexual activity?' If holding someone's hand leads to sex, then what about a wink? Or a smile? Perhaps we should just keep the boys and girls separate until they turn 21. That would solve the problem.

Instead of wasting time on issues like this, they should be trying to figure a way to jump start our economy, and get people back to work.
