Entry: Teacher gets H.S. students to taste flavored condoms. Saturday, July 24, 2004

When I found out about this, I found it to be absolutely deplorable.

Who in the world could actually think this was a good idea?  You have to actually taste condoms in order to learn protective sex?  This is a perfect example on how public schools have gotten out of control.  If I'm fortunate to have kids one day they will NEVER be allowed to take a sexual education class, and definitely not in a public school.

Sure; teenagers should be taught about condoms and other forms of contraception.  But tasting condoms goes over the line.  In fact, it probably makes the child look forward to using them, which will encourage more sexual activity than before. 

I'm not a abstinence-until-marriage advocate, but I do think that kids at that age should not have sex.  Of course, these "enlighteners" will say "that's unrealistic".  Is it unrealistic to expect every teenager to abstain from sex?  Yes.  But it's not unrealistic to encourage whomever you can.  Believe it or not, some just might listen.

But what this guy did?  Absolutely over the line:

According to a report in the Santa Fe New Mexican, parent Lisa Gallegos said that when her 15-year-old daughter balked at putting a condom in her mouth, instructor Tony Escudero told her, "Come on, sweetie, have a little fun."

Also, Gallegos quotes her daughter as saying when a male student expressed his disgust with homosexual activity, Escudero said, "Never say never, because you never know. Someday you might like it that way."
This is not a teacher that should be in charge of high school teenagers, or any children for that matter.  There are too many naive teenagers out there that will swallow (no pun intended) the indoctrination that this guy is serving up.  Even to joke with kids like that while pressuring to participate, as he did to Gallegos's daughter, is very irresponsible.

This is why I cringe at the thought of being a parent; there is no telling what is being told to your child by whom.  And with parents and children spending less and less time with each other nowadays,  it gives an opening to influences outside the family that could result in behaviors that you never thought your child would have.  All you can do is prepare them for that world and just hope they don't get caught up in it.

*nod* As parents we have got to teach these things before the schools take it upon themselves to do so in 5th grade. We have to be aware of what exactly the schools are putting out as "sex ed".

Mr. Escudero is way out of line. "Come on, sweetie, have a little fun." might be OK with his 20-something girlfriend (if she doesn't blacken his eye) - but is not OK at all with his teenaged student.
