Sex Makes Liberals Stupid

That is the only rational conclusion from last night's vote by the Portland, ME school board to give birth control injections to 11-year-old girls without their parents knowledge or consent.

It's one thing for some loony activist to float this dopey idea. It's another for an elected school board, with the entire nation watching, to cast a 5-2 vote for such flagrant stupidity. At this point, the liberal loonies are just showing off.

There are dozens of stories in the media about the kookery at King Middle School, but interestingly, not one raises the obvious point we've been talking about on 96.9 WTKK, namely that sexual contact with an 11-year-old is a felony. It's criminal sexual assault. I assume we call it "assault" because we think these young girls are being, well, assaulted. Why is the Portland school board helping it happen?

If an 11-year-old girl were being beaten by her father, would we just give her band-aids and a helmet and say "Hey, child abuse is gonna happen. At least the helmet will prevent long-term brain damage?" Of course not.

So are we saying that a guy can have sex with an 11-year-old and NOT be committing child abuse? Is that possible? Not on planet Earth, it's not. On planet Liberal....

I write about this in the Boston Herald today:

I have a daughter in a public middle school. I know how hard it is to get a school-sanctioned Tylenol on campus. I’ve fought the “no cupcakes, they might have peanuts!” fight. Some schools are getting rid of the snack machines out of fear of giving our children access to high-fructose corn syrup.

But these same liberal educators are going to let the school nurse pump my 11-year-old full of progesterone so she can “get her groove on” without fear of pregnancy?

Please. Just give her the cupcake.
