The Indy Star has an article entitled School sex article questioned. The article didn’t surprise me. Some students put together an article for their high school paper about the dangers of oral sex. Mainstream newspapers like to run the “controversy” story so they can titillate their audiences without getting in trouble.
No, what surprised me was the passing mention:
Columbus resident Kenn Gividen, who ran unsuccessfully for school board and was the 2004 Libertarian candidate for governor, said the student newspaper was not the proper place for such a frank sexual discussion.
â€œIâ€™m sure this is something kids are talking about. Kids talked about a lot of dirty things when I was in school,â€ he said. â€œBut itâ€™s something completely separate for the school to endorse it, which is obviously what they did by publishing it.â€
Some libertarian. Against free speech because the speech is “dirty?” Next thing you know, Gividen will be weighing in against “Miss Ann,” the dominatrix being hounded by prudes and Democrats in Indianapolis.
(Looks like Liberal Indiana is way ahead of me on the commentary.)
