Well, That Was Awkward

Via Raw Story:

While visiting lawmakers’ offices in Olympia with representatives from Planned Parenthood during Teen Lobbying Days, the group of Eastern Washington teens were stunned when State Rep. Mary Dye (R-Pomeroy) quizzed them over whether they had ever had sex.

Rachel Todd, a Planned Parenthood worker accompanying the kids, said that Dye asked them if they were virgins and indicated that one of them might not be.

“After she made the statement about virginity, all of my teens looked at me,” said Todd. “And I said, ‘You don’t have to answer that. You don’t have to answer that.’”

Failing to get a response, Dye shared some of her own views on marriage and sex.

Oh, I’m sure the teens were all just dying to hear about that.

One student at the meeting, Alex Rubino, called her conduct “insane.”

“It seemed kind of insane for her to say that, especially on the record, to constituents,” said Rubino, who noted that her lecture to the students came “unprompted.”

Yeah, that just about sums it up.
