A Brief Though on School, Teen Sex, And School-Sponsored Cheerleaders Shaking Their Cute Little Asses
We have a new gym at my school, and it officially opened today. There was a pep-rally to celebrate it's opening and the first game that is to be held in it. Of course, there were plenty of cheerleaders there, doing their little dances and stunts (so of them were quite impressive).
Now, my question is this: what is it that compels the administration to, on the one hand, refuse to provide free or low-cost safer sex materials to students in the clinic or bathrooms - there was a big stink about the issue last year - and on the other hand, support and sponsor such blatantly sexual activity? There's no way you can convince me that putting a dozen pretty girls up on stage in ultra-short skirts and bare tummies to strut and shake and bounce their stuff is not obviously and vigorously sexual.
What, exactly, is the administration trying to say here? "Look, kids, sex before marriage is dangerous and wrong! Don't you see that giving you easy access to condoms would only encourage you to violate your natural love of chastity? What kind of caring adults would we be if we did something to acknowledge that you young people have insanely active libidos? Now, please sit back and enjoy while some scantily clad young women thrust their hips at you in an enthusiastic manner!"
While I'm sure that there were teachers and staff members who - enjoyed - the show, I think that is is clear that the cheerleaders are there mostly for the kids - the cheerleaders seemed to enjoy doing their sexy little dances, and the striaght and bi guys and queer girls certainly liked it. Why does the administration feel it's responsible to put on sexy cheer-shows while leaving it's students high and dry when it comes to actually having safer sex? The only thing that we were taught in health class about safer sex was that we should wait, but if we wanted to be irresponsible and stupid and respond to our screaming hormons, well, we should use condoms, not that we're going to give them to you and contribute to your delinquency. They never told us about how to use condoms or about (mutual) masturbation or about diaphrams or latex gloves or lube.
Does no one else see the hypocracy and sheer stupidity of the adults that run the school in smilingly supporting teen sexuality when it is poorly veiled as a wholesome girl's sport and then letting their own little discomforts and fears get in the way of actually protecting the sexual health of their students?
