Ohio Practices Abstinence Only… And Other News

abstinence only

Ohio is taking us back to the 1950s. A super pro abstinence sex education amendment has been added to the Ohio House’s budget bill.

The new amendment focuses on teaching students abstinence instead of sex education. More specifically, the amendment said “the State Board of Education shall require course material and instruction in venereal disease education, and additional courses should do some of the following: stress that students should abstain from sexual activity until after marriage; students should be taught that conceiving children out of wedlock is likely to have harmful consequences for the child, the child’s parents and society.” What happens if you’re caught giving students sex education material? A $5,000 civil fine! NBC News

ObamaRound 1: NRA, 1. Obama, 0. The Senate failed to pass the gun-control bill on Wednesday and Obama is upset. Joe Biden looks pretty upset too. “This was a pretty shameful day for Washington,” President Obama said at the White House. “But this effort is not over.” The bill fell six votes short of the 60 needed to pass the measure. Who’s to blame? Obama placed the blame on Republicans, lobbyists for gun manufacturers and the NRA. But according to Obama, this is just “round one” and he will not stop fighting for stricter gun control. Unless he gets hit by a stray bullet. BBC News

Lorena Bobbitt 2.0Lorena Bobbitt 2.0. The trial of Catherine Kieu, who cut off her husband’s penis in 2011, has begun in Southern California. Kieu was angry at her cheating husband so she laced his tofu with sleeping pills, tied him up to their bed, cut off his penis with a 10-inch kitchen knife, and then chopped it up in the garbage disposal, all while yelling “You deserve it!” The husband’s penis, needless to say, was unable to be reattached. While he had surgery that enables him to urinate, he says, “I will never have a sex life again.” ABC News

JapaneseAn old hooker with a large price tag: A 77-year-old Japanese woman received $4 million over a seven year period from a 79-year-old man in exchange for sexual and romantic favours. For that price, he could’ve got a Kardashian! But the man says he gave her the money with the understanding that it was a loan to be paid back. Instead, she used it to fund her luxury lifestyle, buying several luxury cars, including a BMW, a Mercedes-Benz, and a Jaguar, as well as a condominium. Her gold digging dreams are over now though: a local court has ordered her to pay back the roughly 400 million yen of sex money. Japan Daily Press
