This is just too rich to pass up. Nancy Elliott, a Republican state representative from New Hampshire, recently made a fool of herself during one of the sessions to repeal same-sex marriage in her state. While she doesn’t discuss the bill itself in this clip, she does discuss some of her feelings on anal sex, where after she thought about it for a while, she began to wonder whether “wriggling [the penis] around in excrement” is normal behavior. She then goes on to question whether or not she would want that done to her. Of course, it goes without saying that the bedroom antics of consenting individuals should be of no concern to Nancy Elliot or the government. See Lawrence v. Texas.
After being interrupted and asked to keep to discussion on the bill, she continues, saying that she “heard yesterday from a mother that in fifth grade in Nashua, they were given as part of their classroom instruction naked pictures of two men showing a presentation of anal sex. … They are now teaching it in the public school. They are showing our fifth graders how they can actually perform this kind of sex… They are saying this is something that you, as a 5th grader, may want to try.”
I’ll agree, fifth grade is way too early to teach sex education – but hey, I totally support teaching the realities of both heterosexual and same-sex sex in high school sex ed. Yes, as a teenager, I would have been turned off had we talked about two dudes having sex with each other, but fortunately, sex education is not about getting turned on.
EDIT: YouTube keeps taking the videos down for some unknown reason, but I managed to find another video hosted right here!
