U.S Department Of Education Rules That Your Knocked Up Teen Can’t Get Kicked Off The Cheerleading Squad
The US Department Of Education has submitted a pamphlet to school districts around the nation that Â explains the rights given to pregnant students and what is considered discriminatory to students who are pregnant and those with young children. The Daily Caller sums it up here:
Among the throng of guaranteed rights is the right to participate at any time in all extracurricular activities including interscholastic sports. The Department of Educationâ€™s Title IX regulations explicitly forbid â€œdiscrimination against aÂ studentÂ based on pregnancy, childbirth, false pregnancy, termination of pregnancy, or recovery from any of these conditions.â€
Thus, the Department of Education is mandating that pregnant highÂ schoolÂ girls must be allowed on the girls diving team and hockey teams. The same goes for shot-putting, pole vaulting and waddling around the track.
Waddling around the track? Ouch. But besides that nasty bit of editorialization the article is good news for high school students who find themselves in the baby-way. It’s hard enough being a pregnant teen without having to give up your extracurricular and sports activities especially because it feels like making girls give up these things is punishment for them being pregnant. I’m sure all the fine young men who made these girls pregnant don’t have to stop playing football or running track simply because they put their teenage peni in places without using proper forms of birth control. I’m sure there are many parents who will be furious as soon as they see a pregnant girl on the swim team or playing volleyball, and I’m also sure there will be many calls made to schools with outraged parents demanding girls be benched because they got knocked up. I’m just happy there are now laws that prevent these parents from having their way when they are confronted with the realities of pregnant teenage girls.
