What Would You Call It?

And the ignorance flows on like a mighty river.

Parents in Dietrich, Idaho, aren’t very happy with the way science teacher Tim McDaniel is teaching their children human anatomy.

That is to say, they’re unhappy that he is teaching them human anatomy at all.

In a formal complaint made against the 18-year Dietrich School veteran by at least four parents, McDaniel is chided for using the word “vagina” during a tenth-grade biology class on the human reproductive system.

[...]

“I teach straight out of the textbook, I don’t include anything that the textbook doesn’t mention,” McDaniel told the Twin Falls Times-News. “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.”

No student has ever opted out, McDaniel said.

History has proven time and again that even if horny teens don’t know the scientific term for something, they still know how to use it.

One bark on “What Would You Call It?

  1. Give me a break! Why is vagina a bad word? Many of us have them. I taught my daughters that word long before high school.
