A Ban on Kissing? The Right-Wing Sexual Fears in New Abstinence Bills

A slew of right wing state bills you won't believe.

Envision a sex education class where the mention of homosexuality is forbidden by law and discussion of contraception, or even puberty, is deemed unnecessary.That’s the world that would be created by a recent raft of abstinence education bills in Tennessee, Utah and Wisconsin.

P.S., the Utah bill passed legislation but was luckily vetoed by the governor after a huge public outcry - I don't remember the exact figures now, but between 60-80% of Utahns were polled as being supportive of sex ed in public schools, so it was pretty irritating to have such an anti-sex sex ed bill get passed.
