Mom Awesomely Live-Tweets Son's Abstinence-Only Sex Ed Class

By Guerrillamom @mariaguido
A mom went to her son's abstinence only sex-ed class and live-tweeted it. The rest is history.
The kid has invited me to his health class on sex ed to see how bad it is, so I'm going. But hands over my mouth means I can't live-tweet it

Uh oh. They stuck me in the corner with my computer and there is wifi....so I can live tweet this. We still pledge loyalty to the flag, huh?

I can't stand this. They're teaching "abstinence stories" that worked and non-abstinence" stories that "led to consequences."

The visitor-teacher is telling my kid abstinence education reduces premarital sex. My kid is trying to show her studies that dispute that.
— Alice Dreger (@AliceDreger) April 15, 2015

She's being completely condescending. "You can look up anything on the internet" Then refers him to site on abstinence education!

Now we're hearing a horror story about marijuana use.

The regular health teacher in trying to shut my kid up referred to "LGBYT." And how the board decides what we learn.

The guy telling the "abstinence" story is now telling us about having sex as a teenager. I'm confused.

Now he's talking about getting a girl preg and them hiding it from their parents. Yup, that's what sexual shame does, dude!
— Alice Dreger (@AliceDreger) April 15, 2015
Preg girl got picked on so her friends desserted her. That's what happens if you have sex, kids! Yup! Pregnant and NO FRIENDS!

The whole lesson here is "sex is part of a terrible lifestyle. Drugs, unemployment, failure to finish school -- sex is part of the disaster"

"You'll find a good girl. If you find one that says 'no,' that's the one you want." HE ACTUALLY JUST SAID THAT.

Now the woman is up. "Sometimes condoms fail."
— Alice Dreger (@AliceDreger) April 15, 2015
She's now telling story of condom box in which EVERY SINGLE CONDOM HAD A HOLE.
— Alice Dreger (@AliceDreger) April 15, 2015
"On average 1 out of 6 times there is a mishap with a condom." "Every day in US 1600+ teen pregnancies." Lesson: condoms fail? WTF?
— Alice Dreger (@AliceDreger) April 15, 2015
Condoms. They fail. You get pregnant. Your friends leave you. You drop out of school. Your kids end up in the army.
— Alice Dreger (@AliceDreger) April 15, 2015
"We are going to roll this dice 8 times. Every time your number comes up, in pretend your condom failed and you get a paper baby." JESUS!!!
— Alice Dreger (@AliceDreger) April 15, 2015
Paper babies are being handed out to EVERYONE. They have ALL HAD CONDOM FAILURE AND THE WHOLE CLASS IS PREGNANT.
— Alice Dreger (@AliceDreger) April 15, 2015
"You have to have a baby!" There are apparently no scissors in the room for paper abortions.
— Alice Dreger (@AliceDreger) April 15, 2015
"I'm going to collect the babies that you don't want. We recycle them."
— Alice Dreger (@AliceDreger) April 15, 2015
"Safe sex is kind of a misnomer."
— Alice Dreger (@AliceDreger) April 15, 2015
It's over. I need a drink.
— Alice Dreger (@AliceDreger) April 15, 2015
I can't get up. I'm too stunned.
— Alice Dreger (@AliceDreger) April 15, 2015
I think what happened is they assumed I was a conservative parent sitting in to monitor. Prob never occurs to him sex-positive parents exist
— Alice Dreger (@AliceDreger) April 15, 2015
Honestly today reminded me of why I dropped out of college. Why should I be assigned factually wrong work by idiots and then graded by them?
— Alice Dreger (@AliceDreger) April 15, 2015
Has anyone yet figured out what the teacher meant by "LGBYT"? Leading theory is he was hungry for a BLT.
