Holding hands? This state says ‘Wait until marriage’

Tennessee….always Tennessee.   

Tennessee lawmakers don’t want teenagers having sex, which is why Sex Education courses in Tennessee public schools teach kids that abstinence is the way to go. Concerned that telling teens to draw the line at sexual intercourse might not be getting the job done, however, the Tennessee State Senate recently voted 28-1 to prohibit Sex-Ed instructors, including any outside individuals or groups invited to address the students, from demonstrating or promoting “gateway sexual activity.”

The law itself is pretty vague about the meaning of “gateway sexual activity,” but the basic idea is that something less may lead to something more, the way some people believe that marijuana use leads to dangerous drugs or a cold beer on a hot afternoon is the first step toward weeklong benders in Tijuana.
