Schools are supposed to teach kids to be on the lookout for people who are scary and talk about sex in an inappropriate way or ramble on about death and doom. Apparently they do things differently in Alaska.
It’s safe to say that students at a Wasilla, Alaska high school weren’t expecting their congressman to talk to them about bull sex at an assembly Tuesday morning.
The Alaska Dispatch News reported that students and staff at Wasilla High School said U.S. Rep. Don Young (R-AK) “acted in a disrespectful and sometimes offensive manner to some students, used profanity and started talking about bull sex when confronted with a question about same-sex marriage” during his 60-minute appearance.
When one student asked Young why he thought same-sex marriage was so bad, the congressman responded: “You can’t have marriage with two men. What do you get with two bulls?” according to Wasilla Principal Amy Spargo.
Witnesses told the Dispatch News that Young’s comments on suicide also stunned the assembly, as students and staff were mourning the loss of a Wasilla student who took his own life last week. Young mentioned alcohol and depression and said that suicide shows a lack of support from friends and family, according to the witnesses.
Mr. Young has been the one and only congressman from Alaska since it became a state in 1959. Nothing against old people, but I think it’s time he found something else to do and another place to do it.
