...OH MY GOD, NO, CHILDREN OF FIFTEEN/SIXTEEN ARE TOO YOUNG TO KNOW THE ACTUAL NAMES FOR BODY PARTS! IT'S SO MUCH SAFER AND NORMAL AND TOTALLY LESS CREEPY FOR THEM TO KEEP CALLING THEM THEIR 'NO-NO-PARTS' THAN IT IS FOR A TEACHER TO SAY THE WORD 'VAGINA' OR 'PENIS' OR 'TESTICLES' IN A BIOLOGY CLASS.

Ah.

But The Raw Story reports that some students who are rallying around McDaniel believe those who complained about the teacher's methods may be motivated by religion.

Per the most recent statistics, nearly 66% of all Lincoln County adherents are affiliated with the Mormon Church, which specifically requires parents to "ensure that the [sex education] instructions given to their children are consistent with sound moral and ethical values."

That reminds me of this paper:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2655816/

Abstract:

Quote
This paper presents results of a consumer health vocabulary study of text appearing on Web-based bulletin boards. Consumers used obscenities and euphemisms to refer to certain body parts, functions, and behaviors. The female genitalia are the body region most often described with an obscenity (29% of all instances); male genitalia, in contrast, were rendered as obscene only 3% of the time. Consumers responding on the bulletin boards appear genuinely to prefer euphemistic slang and baby talk (62%) over obscenities (24%) when referring to the buttocks. From an anatomical perspective, this large dataset reveals a consumer health vocabulary of euphemisms and outright obscenities coexisting with professional medical terminology. The evident preference for euphemisms and slang for some anatomical parts has important implications for the design of health information controlled vocabularies and translation systems, faced with a lay language more informal than expected.

Isn't vagina a medical term? I mean since when has it been a swear word? Or even a "naughty" word?

If those kids aren't allowed to even hear about human anatomy and such things then they should not have been to those classes, which would have been easy since the teacher specifically asked if anyone would feel uncomfortable while discussing the topic and gave them a chance to skip those classes.

So either we are dealing with complete idiots or these kids were used as a tool to create a controversy and get rid of this teacher.

...Or both.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:

Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Things have gotten steadily worse since I was a 10 year old, not a 10th grader, and learned the terms; vagina, penis, uterus, etc. in my elementary school health education class. This school was in a politically conservative, wealthy town. It was 1970. And they had taught this class since the 1950's. And nobody's parents freaked out about it. Because all the fanatic parents put their kids in religious/parochial school.....where they STILL had better sex education taught by nuns than is allowed in all these fuckwit-ruled red states nowadays.

I sympathize completely. However, to use against us. Let me ask you a troll. On the one who pulled it. But here's the question: where do I think it might as well have stepped out of all people would cling to a layman.

They taught it in my school-going years pretty early too.  I believe it was 5th grade or so.  In fact the teachers and speakers they had for sex ed and biology type classes preferred to use the actual terms for the genitalia.

My first sex ed class was in 4th grade, and medical terms were used.

Mine was in fifth grade, and medical terminology was used there as well. I did not die or become a hooker and I don't have PTSD because of it. So nyaah.

There's no pleasing these idiots.  Getting upset at PROPER MEDICAL TERMS if fucking stupid.

Someone called a body part by its medical name. Quick, call the police!

Talk about a bunch of five-year-olds. I hope they realize that, unless they plan on forcing their children to live with them for the rest of their lives, they're going to be exposed to horrifying words like "vagina." And with such sheltering, at least some of them are going to freak the hell out once they're living on their own, without mommy and daddy to shield everything.
Guys, this is getting creepy. Can we talk about cannibalism instead?
