Teacher Uses The Word ‘Vagina’ In A Biology Lesson – Parents Freak

By  | 

shutterstock_99793448A science teacher in Idaho is being investigated by the state’s professional standards commission, after he dared use the “V” word while teaching a class on the human reproductive system. Yes, a biology teacher says vagina and now parents are up in arms. Apparently he didn’t get the memo that we don’t call them that anymore.

The fact that teacher Tim McDaniel explained the biology of an orgasm in a lesson on human reproduction mixed with the fact that he said “vagina” created the perfect storm. These parents will not stand for actual biological facts being taught in sex-ed class. What happened to the Stork? We don’t teach that anymore? From Missoulian.com:

According to McDaniel, four parents were offended that he explained the biology of an orgasm and included the word “vagina” during his lesson on the human reproductive system in a tenth-grade biology course.

“I teach straight out of the textbook, I don’t include anything that the textbook doesn’t mention,” McDaniel said. “But I give every student the option not attend this class when I teach on the reproductive system if they don’t feel comfortable with the material.”

The science teacher said he has taught Dietrich’s science classes for the past 18 years without receiving a complaint from parents or students.

The superintendent of schools says it is highly unlikely this would “end with his dismissal.” Maybe just a “letter of reprimand” from the school board. Interesting. What is that letter going to say? Shame on you for using a biological term when discussing biology. In the future, please refer to dirty lady parts by the terms Vajayjay, Hoohaa, or VeeVee. And never mention orgasm even though it is a biological imperative for reproduction. Thank you.

Has it really come to this? Now, not only are we uninterested in teaching sex education – we also don’t want students to have basic knowledge of their reproductive systems. Yes, ignorance is bliss – coated in teen pregnancies and STD’s. What a wonderful world.

Good job, parents.
